Deck of Dice may also collect information from you or otherwise concerning your access to and use of the Service that, on its own, does not enable the identification of any particular individual.  We may collect, store, handle, process, disclose and use any such non-personal information for any purpose.  Deck of Dice may combine non-personally identifiable information with personally identifiable information, and such combined information will be treated as personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.  Deck of Dice may use personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information, individually or in a combined form, in order to improve the Service and/or the Deck of Dice Content, to better understand our users and their activities, conduct, interests and preferences, to address any actual or potential issues with respect to the Service and/or any of the Deck of Dice Content, to serve or otherwise provide advertising and promotional materials (in static and/or dynamic formats), to support, maintain and administer the Service and the Deck of Dice Content, and in connection with the enforcement of this Privacy Policy and/or the enforcement of the terms and conditions of Deck of Dice’s Terms of Service or any related policies, guidelines and/or standards that may be adopted by Deck of Dice, at its sole discretion, at any time and from time to time.  Anonymous information and related data shall be considered non-personal information for all intents and purposes under this Privacy Policy.

From time to time, Deck of Dice may choose, at its sole discretion, to offer a sweepstakes or other form of contest or promotion by means of the Service and/or any of the Deck of Dice Content.  Deck of Dice may use any and all of the information that you submit in order to provide any such sweepstakes, contest or promotional events, and your eligibility to enter into and/or to participate in any such activities is and shall be expressly conditioned upon you granting your consent and permission for Deck of Dice to collect, store, handle, process, disclose and use any such information and related data, including, without limitation, gameplay, achievements, scores and rankings resulting from or otherwise arising in connection with any such activities.

However, notwithstanding our best intentions and commitments (as expressly set forth in this Privacy Policy) to safeguard your information and to prevent unauthorized access, reproduction, damage, loss, modification, alteration, misappropriation, use or disclosure by third parties, please be advised that there are always risks involved in transmitting information over the Internet and/or by means of mobile or non-mobile computing devices (e.g., smartphones, tablet computers, personal digital assistants, or other computing or communications devices).  No method of transmission over the Internet is or is ever likely to be completely safe, and there can be no guarantee that any information that is submitted by you, or that concerns you and that is collected or otherwise obtained by or for Deck of Dice, will be completely safe from any human or machine processing error, damage, loss, misappropriation, or unauthorized access, reproduction, modification, alteration, misappropriation, use or disclosure.  There is always a risk that an unauthorized third party could find a way to bypass or otherwise defeat Deck of Dice’s security systems and related technologies.  As a result, despite the security measures and practices that have been adopted by Deck of Dice for preventing possible breaches of our systems for safeguarding our records, books of accounts, and our users’ personally identifiable information, we cannot provide any guarantee of absolute security, nor can we guarantee that we will never experience any act of unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other form of security breach, nor warrant the ongoing security, integrity and continuing privacy of any information that you choose to provide to Deck of Dice or any of our affiliates or business partners via the Internet, and you do so at your own risk and sole expense.  We strongly advise you, along with all other individual users who choose to access and use the Service and/or any of the Deck of Dice Content, to take advantage of any and all precautionary measures that are designed and intended to protect his or her personally identifiable information (e.g., protect all passwords, log out of an Account when ending a session, etc.).  The unauthorized use of any Account that you elect to establish with Deck of Dice may occur as a result of your Account being hacked or otherwise compromised.  If you have questions regarding any of the security measures that have been adopted and implemented by Deck of Dice, please feel free to contact us at support@deckofdice.com.

Accessing and Updating Your Information

You can access, correct and/or update your Account information and personally identifiable information by editing such information through your Account’s profile page.  Please note that your Account may be deactivated in the event that you delete all information associated with your Account.  You may request Deck of Dice to terminate your user Account or otherwise request that we delete your personally identifiable information at any time by contacting us at support@deckofdice.com.  Deck of Dice expressly reserves the right to decline certain requests in the event that we are legally required to retain such information or if any such request would foreseeably require a disproportionate amount of effort or is otherwise impractical, would foreseeably be unreasonably repetitive, or could potentially endanger or otherwise result in injury, loss or damage to another user or to any third party’s rights or interests, including, without limitation, any privacy or publicity rights.

Please be advised that it is not technically possible to remove each and every record of any information that you choose to provide to us or that is collected or otherwise obtained by Deck of Dice by means of the Service and/or any of the Deck of Dice Content, specifically, or from the Internet, in general.  We need to regularly back-up our networked computer systems in order to safeguard such information from unintended loss or damage, which means that copies of the information that is collected from or about you, your computing device and/or your activities in accessing and using the Service and/or any of the Deck of Dice Content, including, without limitation, any personally identifiable information, may exist in a form that may be very difficult or, indeed, impossible for us to locate.  For example, if you choose to post or otherwise contribute any User Content that is displayed or performed on or within the Service and/or any of the Deck of Dice Content, we may not be able to delete all copies of such information and related data (e.g., another user could have made a copy of your User Content, etc.).  However, once we receive your request regarding the deletion of any particular personally identifiable information, such information as is stored in databases that are then actively being used and that are owned by or otherwise under Deck of Dice’s control will be changed, corrected, modified, updated or deleted, as appropriate, as soon as is reasonably practicable.

In the event that you access the Service and/or any of the Deck of Dice Content through a third-party social networking service or other such third-party platform or service, and you grant Deck of Dice the right to access your Account information by means of such social network or other third-party platform or service, you will likely be able to terminate Deck of Dice’s continued access to your Account information in accordance with the written policies and specific terms and conditions adopted by the applicable social network or other third-party platform or service.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary that may be set forth in our Privacy Policy, Deck of Dice expressly reserves the right to retain any and all information in our files that we have obtained from and about you, your computing device, activities and/or interactions while accessing and using the Service and/or any of the Deck of Dice Content following the termination of your use of the Service and/or any or all of the Deck of Dice Content in order to resolve disputes, enforce our Privacy Policy or related Terms of Service, for technical purposes, to comply with legal requirements, and to enhance the reliability, integrity, security, and safeguarding of the operability of the Service, including, without limitation, any and all of the Deck of Dice Content.

California Privacy Rights

California Civil Code §1798.83 permits users who are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.  As noted above, our policy is not to share a user’s personal information that is collected online or disclose such information to any third parties for direct marketing purposes without the user’s consent.  This can be done by “opting in” to receive such marketing or advertising information from a third party at the time that the user chooses to participate in a particular marketing event or promotional activity through Deck of Dice in connection with the Service (e.g., a sweepstakes or contest).  Furthermore, should a user ask us to share his or her information in connection with the direct marketing purposes of any third party (or third parties), we will take appropriate steps that are intended to make sure that we only share such information in connection with the direct marketing purpose and related promotional activities approved by the relevant user, as we do not have a policy of sharing information with any third party (other than our service providers) on an ongoing and recurring basis.  Please do not opt-in if you want to avoid the disclosure of your personal information to a third party for its direct marketing efforts.  As importantly, if you would like to opt-out of the disclosure of your personal information to any third party for its direct marketing efforts at any time after initially giving your approval, or have a question about our disclosure of your personal information, please contact us at support@deckofdice.com.

Right to Access

Under applicable laws, statutes, directives, rules and regulations of certain jurisdictions, some of our users have the right to access and review the personal information about them that has been collected online and that is retained in our server networks and computer databases.  If you would like to exercise your right to access and review your information in accordance with any applicable law, statute, directive, rule or regulation, and so that you may thereafter correct and/or request the deletion of any particular information, please submit a request for access in writing to support@deckofdice.com.

Changes to our Privacy Policy

Please be advised that Deck of Dice may elect to add to, delete from or otherwise change any of the terms or conditions of this Privacy Policy, and we hereby expressly reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy, at our sole discretion, at any time and from time to time and in any way that we deem appropriate.  If we decide to make any material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will use good faith efforts to provide you with notice by posting such changes within the Service or in conjunction with any affected Deck of Dice Content (as applicable) and/or by sending a message informing you of the modified terms or conditions with a link to the updated version of Deck of Dice’s Privacy Policy.  However, we must reserve the right to implement changes immediately, as determined in our sole discretion.  You agree to periodically check Deck of Dice’s official website (which can be found at: www.deckofdice.com) in order for you to read and familiarize yourself with any future revisions to our Privacy Policy.  Any applicable changes will go into effect on the corresponding “Last Updated” date displayed at the beginning of the modified and updated Privacy Policy.  Your continued use of the Service and/or of any of the Deck of Dice Content will be deemed to indicate and to have confirmed that you expressly agree and consent to our revised Privacy Policy.  If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy or to any future amendments or other modifications to this Privacy Policy, you shall no longer be authorized to use the Service and/or any of the Deck of Dice Content, and you must immediately discontinue accessing and cease making any further use of the Service and/or any of the Deck of Dice Content.
