Privacy Policy

Monarc Gaming Labs ("Monarc," "we," "our" or "us") respects the privacy rights of its customers and protects the personal information collected, stored and used in connection with Monarc services, games and websites (the "Services"). To further this commitment, we have adopted this Privacy Policy ("Privacy Policy") to guide how we collect, store, and use the information you provide us. Monarc Gaming Labs includes its Affiliates, which shall mean subsidiaries, parent companies, joint ventures and other corporate entities under common ownership.

I. SCOPE OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY

This Privacy Policy describes Monarc‘s collection and use of your personal information submitted and collected through our Services. The term "Personal Information" as used in this Privacy Policy includes any individually identifiable information about the user, including but not limited to name, address, telephone number, e-mail address or any other identifier of a user, and information concerning that user collected and/or maintained in personally identifiable form.

BY INSTALLING, USING, REGISTERING TO OR OTHERWISE ACCESSING OUR SERVICES, YOU ARE ACCEPTING THE PRACTICES DESCRIBED IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT INSTALL, USE, REGISTER TO OR OTHERWISE ACCESS OUR SERVICES.

We may modify this Privacy Policy from time to time, without any liability to you. We will notify you of any revisions to this Privacy Policy in accordance with Section 24 of our Terms of Use. Such modifications shall be effective thirty (30) days after posting unless stated otherwise. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you will be deemed to have agreed to any such modifications by your further use of our Services after any such modification is posted. It is important that you review this Privacy Policy regularly to ensure you are updated as to any changes. If you do not agree with the modifications, please discontinue use of our Services immediately.

Please be aware that advertisers or websites with links to and from our Services may collect personal information about you. This Privacy Policy does not apply to, and cannot control the activities of, those other advertisers or websites.

II. INFORMATION COLLECTED

We may collect and process the following data about you.

A. Personal Information

When you access or engage in certain activities on our Services (such as registering a user account, downloading and installing application(s), playing game(s), purchasing virtual game items, sending and/or posting a user content, or sending us feedback), Monarc may collect Personal Information about you, but only if you voluntarily provide it to us.

For example, if you purchase a license to use in-game virtual currency or virtual items directly from Monarc, it is necessary that you provide to us billing and financial information necessary to process your charges, which may include your postal and e-mail addresses. Monarc may also receive the billing and payment information that you provide when your purchase is processed by another party, such as Facebook. Purchases of third party credits or currencies like Facebook Credits may also be subject to additional policies.

We may also offer you the option to complete a user profile that contains your Personal Information that is visible to other Monarc users. Your user profile may include: a profile photo; username; your gender; biographic details that you provide; links to your profiles on various SNS (as defined below); and details about the games you play on our Services.

B. Usage Information

We collect details of your use of our Services and the resources that you access. Such usage information include information about how and when you access or use our Services (such as games accessed, pages visited, purchase and use of virtual game items, the details of your purchases, and your game play).

C. Technical Information

We collect general technical data pertaining to you (such as information about the device you use to access our Services, IP address, operating system, browser type, program or system error messages and other system information).

D. User Communication with Monarc

If you contact us or respond to messages and communications that we send to you, we may keep a record of that correspondence.

E. Third Party Social Networks or Platforms

You may allow our Services to interact with a third party social network or platform ("SNS") (such as Facebook), which will provide data about you to us. We may also allow you to "register" with us by using Facebook Connect or other SNS authentication options to create an account or profile within our Services. These applications or websites are created and maintained by third parties that are not a part of, or controlled by us. You should ensure that you read their privacy policies to understand how they treat your data and what data they might share with us.

Monarc also collects and stores certain information that you provide directly or through the SNS or other third party website that is offering our Services.

When you access our Services (such as a game) at an SNS, you allow Monarc to access certain information from your profile for that site. The information you allow Monarc to access varies by the type of Services you access on the SNS, and the privacy settings you establish at the SNS. For example, Monarc may access and store some or all of the following information, as allowed by you, the SNS and your preferences:

  • your first and last name
  • your profile picture or its URL
  • your user ID number, which is linked to publicly available information such as name and profile photo
  • the user ID numbers and other public data for your friends
  • the login e-mail you provided to that SNS when you registered
  • your physical location and that of your access devices
  • your gender
  • your birthday

By accessing our Services through an SNS, you are authorizing Monarc to collect, store, and use in accordance with this Privacy Policy any and all information that you agreed the SNS could provide to Monarc.

Please note that your purchase of Virtual Items may NOT be recognized or maintained when you log out from our Services after engaging in the Services using the “Guest Mode;” or you delete your account after engaging in the Services without registration or using the “Guest Mode;” or you replace your mobile device after engaging in the Services without registration or using the “Guest Mode.” For more details please refer to Article 4 of our Terms of Use.

F. Non-Personal Information

For purposes of this Privacy Policy, "Non-Personal Information" means information that does not directly identify you. Monarc may use tools or third party analytical software to automatically collect and use certain Non-Personal Information that does not directly enable Monarc to identify you.

G. Cookies

The Services may use cookies and other technologies such as pixel tags, locally shared objects and web beacons to collect technical information and usage data, which may be linked and identified with your account. A "cookie" is a small bit of record-keeping information that sites often store on a user‘s computer. You can disable cookies or set your browser to alert you when cookies are being sent to your computer, although this may affect your ability to login and use our Services.

H. Mobile Devices

If you access our Services on your mobile telephone or other mobile device, including tablets, we collect mobile device identifiers, including MAC Address, and IP Address. Certain aspects of our Services will create and assign to your device an identifier that is similar to an account number. We may collect the name you have associated with your device, device type, telephone number, country, and any other information you choose to provide, such as user name, character name, geo-location or e-mail address. We may also access your contacts to enable you to invite friends to join you in our Services.
