  1. What is Personal Information?

As used herein, the term “Personal Information” means information is linked or reasonably linkable to an identified or identifiable individual (such as a name, address, telephone number, mobile number, email address, or other account number), and information about that individual’s location or activities, such as information about his or her use of the Service, IP addresses or mobile device identifiers.

Personal Information does not include “aggregate” information, which is data we collect about the use of the Service or about a group or category of products, services or users, from which individual identities or other Personal Information has been removed. Aggregate data helps us understand trends and our users’ needs so that we can better consider new features or otherwise tailor our Service. This Privacy Policy in no way restricts or limits our collection and use of aggregate information.

  1. What Information Do We Collect and For Which Purposes?

Active Collection

Personal Information may be collected in a number of ways when you visit or use our Service. For example, we may collect your name, address, email address, user name and other contact and demographic information when you register and set up an account, or contact us by email or other means for any reason. When you make a purchase, we may also collect your credit card or other payment or billing information. Personal Information may also be collected if you provide such information in connection with creating a profile or group, leaving comments, posting content, sending an email or message to another user or participating in any interactive chat rooms, forums, social media platform or other features on the Website or Service, or when you use our Games. In addition, from time to time we may collect demographic, contact or other Personal Information you provide in connection with your voluntary participation in surveys, sweepstakes, contests, games, promotional offers, and other activities.

However, you will not be able to utilize certain features that require registration or receive materials unless certain information is provided.

To the extent that the processing of this Personal Information is necessary for the performance of our Service, we rely on art. 6.1.(b) of the European General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) if and insofar as the GDPR applies. Where processing is not necessary for the performance of the Service and other legal basis (such as, for example, our legitimate interest in the sense of art. 6.1.(f) of the GDPR if and insofar as the GDPR applies) are inapplicable, your consent to such processing will be requested. From time to time we may change the information requested upon registration or with respect to certain features or services, so this may not be a complete list.

From time to time we post customer testimonials/comments/reviews on the Service which may contain Personal Information. We do obtain the customer’s consent via email prior to posting the testimonial to post their name along with their testimonial. If you wish to update or delete your testimonial, you can contact us at privacy@arcgames.com.

We also deliver advertisements and provide website analytics tools on non-Arc Games sites and our Services, and we collect information about page views on these third party sites as well.

Device Identifiers

When you access the Service by or through a mobile device (including but not limited to smart-phones or tablets), we may use, access, collect, monitor and/or remotely store one or more “device identifiers,” such as a universally unique identifier (“UUID”). Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device’s operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by us. A device identifier may convey information to us about how you browse and use the Service. A device identifier may remain persistently on your device, to help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the Service. Some features of the Service may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.

To the extent that the processing of your personal data is required for our legitimate interest to better understand your use of the Service, and if and insofar as the GDPR applies, we rely on art. 6.1.(f) of the GDPR.

A user identifier may convey information to us about how you browse and use the Service. A user identifier may remain persistently on your device or computer, to help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the Service. Some features of the Service may not function properly if use or availability of user identifiers is impaired or disabled.

Location data may convey to us information about how you browse and use the Service, in order to aid us in the provision of Services to you.

Your desktop or mobile device settings may allow you to disable or block location-based services, which will prevent our Services from accessing your location information. If you choose not to provide this information, you may not be provided with content specific to your location, and we or our marketing partners may not be able to provide you with the applicable personalized services and content. In addition, some features of the Service, particularly location-based services, may not function properly if use or availability of location data is impaired or disabled.

Data Collected To Prevent Unauthorized Use and Unauthorized Software

When you run our Game software, this may involve software functions designed to detect unauthorized use of our Services or unauthorized and malicious programs. In this context, we may access, collect, monitor and/or remotely store screenshots of game play, information relating to hardware capacity, modifications related to our Game software, signatures, profiles or names of known unauthorized or malicious third party programs, files or processes that enable or facilitate cheating, unfair advantage or hacking of the Games or Service. If unauthorized or malicious programs are detected, the Game software may also communicate to us the users account and User ID and information about the unauthorized or malicious program or its use.

We see this processing as necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us, in line with art. 6.1.(f) of the GDPR. If and insofar as the GDPR applies, you have the right to object to this type of processing by contacting us as indicated above. In such case, we will carefully assess whether there are compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

We also obtain information from third party sources.

No Special Categories of Information

We do not request or intend to collect any “special categories of information” as defined in art. 9 of the GDPR, such as any information on health, race, religion, political opinions or philosophical beliefs, sexual preferences or orientation. We also want to kindly remind you to be cautious when sharing this information about yourself (or others) in our forums.

  1. For What Other Purposes Do We Use Personal Information?

In general, we use Personal Information we collect to process your requests or transactions, to provide you with information or Services you request, to inform you about other information, events, promotions, products or Services we think will be of interest to you, to facilitate your use of, and our administration and operation of, the Service, to better understand the needs of our visitors, and for the purpose for which the information was provided.

  • Some processing activities are necessary for the performance of our Service, in line with art. 6.1.(b) of the GDPR (if, and to the extent that, it applies), for example: to provide the Services, products or information you request and to process any transactions in connection therewith;
  • to permit you to interact with other members of the Service on our forum, chat, social media or other similar features;
  • to provide technical support, customer service and ensure the continued smooth operation of our Service; or
  • to respond to your emails, submissions, comments, requests or complaints.

Also, your information will be shared with us by Console Platform, including PSN Online ID, country, gender, age, "Friends" and block list in Console Platform. We will use such information to deliver the console games and Service to you. This processing is necessary for the performance of our Service in line with art. 6.1(b) of the GDPR (if, and to the extent that, it applies).

Other processing activities are necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or a third party, for example:

  • to send you a welcoming email and to contact you about your use of the Service;

  • to send you newsletters, surveys, contest and sweepstakes announcements and to notify contest and sweepstakes winners;

We collect Internet Protocol (IP) address, log data (time and period), in-game items and behaviors, achievements you have completed in the game and other users you referred through your use of the Services. We will use such information to keep the record of your account and to improve the functionality of our Games and Services.

Furthermore, in order to offer you more consistent and personalized experience in your interactions with us, information collected through one offering or portion of the Service may be combined with information obtained through other offerings or portions of the Service. We may also supplement the information we collect with information obtained from other companies. For example, we may use Services from other companies that enable us to derive a general geographic area based on IP address in order to customize certain Services to your geographic area.

If and insofar as the GDPR applies, you have the right to object to this processing based on our legitimate interests by contacting us as indicated above. In such case, we will carefully assess whether there are compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

Where processing is not necessary for the performance of the Service or we do not have legitimate interests or other legal basis are inapplicable, your consent to such processing will be requested as appropriate under applicable laws.

  • to display content and advertising that are customized to your interests and preferences; or
  • to contact you about our or a third party’s Services, products, activities, promotions, special events or offers and for other marketing, informational, product development and promotional purposes.

If you provide us Personal Information about others, you should make sure you have obtained their consent or have lawful basis to do this. In such case, or if others give us your information, we will only use that information for the specific reason for which it was provided to us.

  1. Do We Share Personal Information? If So, How Do We Share Your Information?

We will share your Personal Information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this Privacy Policy.

Our Service Providers

We may share Personal Information with vendors, consultants and other service providers (“Service Providers”) such as our credit card processor and our Live Chat vendor who are engaged by or working with us in connection with the operation of the Service and who need access to such information to carry out their services for us. We provide access to the information they may need to perform our Services under reasonable confidentiality terms. In some cases, the Service Provider may be directly collecting the information from you on our behalf. We require Service Providers to only use Personal Information they obtain from us to provide the Services for us.

We may share your Personal Information with third party partners or Service Providers or allow such third party partners or Service Providers to collect information from you directly in order to provide services to us, including serving you targeted advertisements on or off the Service, provide offers, surveys or marketing messages or providing analytic services. For example, we may use your contact details (such as email or phone number) in order to use Facebook’s Custom Audiences, which enables Facebook to identify and advertise to you on our behalf on the Facebook platform.

We share Personal Information with third parties when you give us your consent to do so if it is required by applicable laws. For example, we may enter into relationships with other parties to make specific services or offers available directly to our users. If a user opts in to these third party services or marketing offers, for example by clicking through to a third party link, we may share the Personal Information you provide at the time of sign-up or other Personal Information about you, such as your name or other contact information, that we deem reasonably necessary or appropriate for our business partner to provide these services or offers or get in contact with you.

We may share information with companies in the same group of companies as Arc Games, which includes our subsidiaries (i.e., any organization we own or control) or our ultimate holding company (i.e., any organization that owns or controls us) and any subsidiaries it owns. These companies will use your Personal Information in the same way as we can under this Privacy Policy.

We see this processing as necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us, in line with art. 6.1.(f) of the GDPR. If and insofar as the GDPR applies, you have the right to object to this type of processing by contacting us as indicated above. In such case, we will carefully assess whether there are compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

Sharing In Response To Legal Obligations

We may access, disclose or preserve Personal Information, including the content of your communications, in the good faith belief that we are lawfully authorized by public and governmental authorities, regulators or courts, or when required to do so, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements, or that doing so is reasonably necessary or appropriate to comply with the law or with legal process or authorities, respond to any claims, or to protect the rights, property or safety of Arc Games, our users, our employees or the public, including without limitation to protect Arc Games or our users from fraudulent, abusive, inappropriate or unlawful use of our Service.

We are not responsible for the actions of any third parties with whom you share Personal Information. To request removal of your Personal Information from our community forums or other public areas, contact us at privacy@arcgames.com.

Information we collect and process, including Personal Information, may also be disclosed or transferred as part of, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale, divestiture, or transfer of all or a portion of the company assets, financing or acquisition or in any other situation where Personal Information may be transferred as one of the business assets of Arc Games. You will be notified via email and/or a notice of any change in ownership, uses of your Personal Information, and choices you may have regarding your Personal Information. For the processing of your Personal Information for this purpose, we rely on our legitimate interest to conduct our business in good faith, in line with art. 6.1.(f) of the GDPR (if, and to the extent that, the GDPR applies).

Please note that nothing herein restricts the sharing of aggregate information, which may be shared with third parties without your consent.

  1. International Transfers of Personal Information

In order to be able to also use your account on our Website and in our Service and to be able to choose a server located in the United States or in Europe for gaming, the information relating to your account and use of our games is transferred between Arc Games Inc. located in the United States and Gearbox Publishing Amsterdam B.V. located in The Netherlands. We also transfer data outside Europe where our third-party Service Providers or partners are located.

If and insofar as the GDPR applies, in case such recipients are located in a third country for which the European Commission has not yet decided that it ensures an adequate level of protection and where derogations for specific situations do not apply, we shall implement appropriate safeguards with regard to the processing of your Personal Information. Where we rely on such appropriate safeguards for the transfer of your Personal Information, we will assess whether these safeguards can sufficiently protect your Personal Information so that the level of protection guaranteed in the European Union is not undermined by the transfer. If this is not the case, we will take the additional measures necessary to provide appropriate protection for your Personal Information. If it is not possible to provide for appropriate protection of your Personal Information, we will not transfer your Personal Information to the recipient in a third country, or will transfer your Personal Information only if and to the extent that another mechanism justifies the transfer of your Personal Information in accordance with applicable data protection law. To obtain a copy of these data protection safeguards or to obtain information about their applicability, please send a request via email to privacy@arcgames.com.
