("Plausible") for the purposes of delivering our services, conducting analysis and research. Plausible collects your IP address and user agent for a short period of time before anonymising it. This data is stored and being encrypted on the servers located in the EEA. Plausible will use this information to analyze your use of our Website in order to compile reports about website activities for us and to perform other services connected with the use of the Website.

- We may contract with additional Partners or change existing Partners in the future to perform any services in connection with the Website. These changes shall be updated twice a year or promptly in case of material changes in our data processing practices.
We reserve the right to disclose your information (including personally identifiable information) in response to law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or to protect our operations, users or user experience. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger or sale we may transfer any and all information (including personally identifiable information) we collect to the relevant third party.
From time to time, we offer marketing emails. If you have passed the age screening and you have given us consent for marketing emails, we will use your personal information for marketing analysis and to provide you with promotional update communications by email about our products and services. For more detailed information please also read the section "Important Information for Younger Users That Want to Sign Up for Marketing Materials" below.
If you have subscribed to marketing emails, you can object to further marketing at any time by selecting the "unsubscribe" link at the end of all our marketing and promotional update communications to you, or by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR YOUNGER USERS THAT WANT TO SIGN UP FOR MARKETING MATERIALS
When you want to pre-register for our new game and you give us your name, date of birth and email address and you tick the first box on the pre-registration form, you are saying that you are happy for us to use this information about you to let you pre-register for this game and get the free item if enough people pre-register, and to use your email address to send you information about the game, such as when it is ready for you to play, and when any new updates or new features of the game will be available. If you also tick the second box, you are saying that you are happy for us to email you also with news and information about our other games.
When you want to sign up for marketing emails and you give us your name, date of birth and email address and you tick the first box on the sign up form, you are saying that you are happy for us to use your email address to send you information about the particular game you are signing up for, such as when any new updates or new features of the game will be available. If you also tick the second box, you are saying that you are happy for us to email you also with news and information about our other games.
In any emails that we send you, we use something called pixel tags, that let us see whether you have read our emails and clicked on any of the links in those emails. We do this so we can make our emails better. We also use something called tracking links, that lets us see if you ended up downloading the game. We do this to keep a track of how many people decided to download the game after receiving an email from us. We use other companies to help us send these emails and use these pixel tags and tracking links, so the information about you that you give to us is shared with those companies so that they can help us with this.
If you are unsure what any of this means, you should speak to an adult. You can always ask us to stop sending you emails at any time by selecting the "unsubscribe" link at the end of all our marketing and promotional update communications to you, or by sending us an email to email@example.com.
You can also ask us to delete all the information that we have about you by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions, you can ask us by email: email@example.com, and US residents may call us on our toll-free telephone number: +1 (256) 203-9712.
