1. Your Privacy

This privacy policy (this “Privacy Policy”), as amended from time to time, applies to all of the products and services offered by Loud Crow Interactive Inc. or its subsidiaries (collectively, “Loud Crow”).

Loud Crow respects the privacy rights of its customers and visitors (“Users”) and is committed to protecting the information collected through its online or mobile applications, services and websites (collectively, “Services”). Loud Crow has adopted this Privacy Policy to explain how Loud Crow collects, stores, and uses the information collected in connection with Loud Crow’s Services.

The English version of the Privacy Policy is the governing version. Any translation of the Privacy Policy is just a reference for your convenience and should not be relied on in legal proceedings.

BY INSTALLING, USING, REGISTERING TO OR OTHERWISE ACCESSING LOUD CROW’S SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY AND GIVE AN EXPLICIT AND INFORMED CONSENT TO THE PROCESSING, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU ARE UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE, YOU AGREE THAT YOU HAVE THE CONSENT OF YOUR PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT INSTALL, USE, REGISTER TO OR OTHERWISE ACCESS THE SERVICES.

2. Information We Collect & How We Use It
Loud Crow may collect and use both personal and non-personal data from Users using Loud Crow’s Services. This section of the Privacy Policy will describe the type of information that may be collected and how the information may be used.

2.1. Personal Data

2.1.1. Definition

For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, “personal data” means personally identifiable information that specifically identifies you as an individual and includes those items specifically listed below.

2.1.2. Registering for Services

Users may make personal data such as their name, email address, username and password available to Loud Crow when they register for Services, enter contests and special events, subscribe to newsletters, request technical support or otherwise communicate with Loud Crow, and when using Loud Crow’s Services where personal data is required for use and/or participation.

2.1.3. Information about Users Received from an SNS
When Users access the Services through a social networking site (“SNS”) such as Facebook or Google +, Users allow Loud Crow to access certain information from their profile for that site. The information Users allow Loud Crow to access varies by application and SNS, and it is affected by the privacy settings you and your friends establish at the SNS. You can control and find out more about these settings at the SNS where you play our games. For example, Loud Crow may access and store some or all of the following information, as allowed by Users, the SNS and their preferences:
• first and last name;
• profile picture or its URL;
• 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 Users’ friends;
• the login e-mail provided to that SNS when Users register;
• Users’ physical location and that of Users’ access devices;
• gender; and
• birthday.
By using the Services through an SNS, Users are authorizing Loud Crow to collect, store, and use, in accordance with this Privacy Policy, any and all information that Users agreed the SNS could provide to Loud Crow through the SNS Application Programming Interface (“API”).

2.1.4. Optimize Interactive Experience

Loud Crow may collect, store and use personal data to provide Users with an optimized interactive experience. For example, the information collected may be used to create Users’ accounts, provide enhanced interaction with Loud Crow’s apps and websites, manage any in-game voting features, notify Users of in-game updates, provide technical support and respond to Users’ inquiries.

2.1.5. Other Purposes

Additionally, Loud Crow may collect, store, and use personal data to solicit Users’ feedback to help improve the Services and other Loud Crow products, inform Users about new products or promotional material offered by Loud Crow or its trusted third party business partners and affiliates, notify Users about changes to Loud Crow’s Services or other products, provide Users with advertising and marketing material from Loud Crow and its trusted business partners and communicate with Users for other commonly accepted purposes such as notifying them that they are a potential winner of a contest.

Finally, Loud Crow may collect and use personal data as required or permitted by applicable law.

2.1.6. Mobile Devices

If Users access Loud Crow’s Services on mobile and tablet devices, Loud Crow may collect mobile device identifiers, including MAC Address and IP Address, and Loud Crow may assign to your device an identifier that is similar to an account number. Loud Crow 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 the Services.

2.1.7. SMS Notifications, Push Notifications & Local Notifications

Loud Crow may store the information you provide, including your telephone number, when you sign up to have SMS notifications sent directly to your mobile phone. These messages notify you of in-game activity and may allow you to play the game from your phone. With your consent Loud Crow may send push notifications and local notifications to your mobile device to provide game updates and other relevant messages.

2.1.8. Payment Information

If you purchase a license to use in-game virtual currency or virtual items directly from Loud Crow, we will collect the billing and financial information necessary to process your charges, which may include your postal or ZIP code and e-mail address.

Please refer to Loud Crow’s Terms of Service to review the policies and terms relevant to our charges and billing practices and the terms of service of third party channels (such as those mentioned above) for their practices and terms of service.

2.1.9. Data Storage

Loud Crow may store and/or transfer your personal data outside of the United States in accordance with applicable legislation and this Privacy Policy.

2.1.10. Third Party Privacy Policies

While accessing or using Loud Crow’s Services, Users may interact with third parties, such as application stores, mobile software platforms, social networking services and payment providers. Users recognize and agree that Loud Crow is not liable for their use of Users’ personal data and Users should review the privacy policies of these third parties.

Loud Crow may make available links through advertisements or otherwise enable you to access third party products or services. While using such products or services, you are using products or services that are not affiliated with or controlled by Loud Crow. Loud Crow is not responsible for those people or companies, the content of their products or services, the use of information you provide to them, or any products or services they may offer. Providing links or otherwise enabling access to third party products or services does not constitute sponsorship of, or affiliation with those people or companies.

2.1.11. User Generated Content

Users should be aware of the open nature of certain social networking and other open features of the Services Loud Crow may make available to you. You may choose to disclose data about yourself in the course of contributing user generated content to the Services. Any data that you disclose in any of these forums, blogs, chats or the like is public information, and there is no expectation of privacy or confidentiality. Loud Crow is not responsible for any personal data you choose to make public in any of these forums.

2.1.12. Minors

Before disclosing a minor User’s personal data to a third party, Loud Crow shall disclose:
• the kinds of businesses in which the third parties are engaged;
• the general purposes for which the information is used; and
• whether the third parties have agreed to maintain the confidentiality and security of the information.

A legal guardian may provide consent to Loud Crow collecting and using the minor’s personal data, without consenting to the disclosure of the minor’s personal data to third parties.

A legal guardian may review or require Loud Crow to delete or stop collecting and further using or disclosing the minor’s personal data at any time by contacting Loud Crow at the coordinates found at the end of this Privacy Policy. In this case, Loud Crow may no longer be able to provide the same level of Services.

Loud Crow does not knowingly collect any personal data from children below the aforementioned age without receiving the consent of a legal guardian. If Loud Crow learns that it has inadvertently collected or stored personal data from children under the aforementioned age without the consent of their legal guardian, Loud Crow will take reasonable measures to promptly erase such personal data from their records.

2.2. Non Personal Data

2.2.1. Definition

For the purpose of this Privacy Policy, “non-personal data” means: (1) information that does not directly identify you; and (2) “aggregate” and “de-personalized” information, which is data Loud Crow collects about the use of Loud Crow Services, from which any personally identifiable data has been removed.

Loud Crow may use tools or third party analytical software to automatically collect and use certain non-personal data. You will not be identifiable through the use of these tools or third party analytical software. The types of non-personal data Loud Crow may collect and use include, but are not limited to:
1. Device properties, including, but not limited to:
(a) IP address;
(b) Media Access Control (“MAC”) address; and
(c) Unique device identifier or other device identifier (“UDID”);
2. Device software platform and firmware;
3. Mobile phone carrier;
4. Geographical data such as zip code, area code and coarse location;
5. Game progress, score and achievements; and
6. Other non-personal data that Loud Crow may require to enhance the Services and other Loud Crow products.

2.2.2. Trusted Partners and Contractors

Loud Crow may use and disclose to its affiliated companies, contractors or other trusted businesses or persons the collected non-personal data for the purpose of auditing, researching and analyzing usage of the Services, ensuring the technical functionality of Loud Crow’s Services and to further develop the Services and other Loud Crow products.

2.2.3. Cookies, Beacons and Tracking

Loud Crow may use “cookies” and other technologies such as pixel tags, locally shared objects, clear GIFs and web beacons. Loud Crow treats information collected by cookies and similar technologies as non-personal data.

A “cookie” is a small bit of record-keeping information that is sent to the Users’ computer. Loud Crow’s cookies do not include personal data and may be used to: (1) facilitate Users’ login authentication, (2) help Users navigate around the Loud Crow’s websites, (3) monitor how many people are using Loud Crow’s Services, and (4) store Users preferences and track trends.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but Users can disable cookies or set their browser to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, disabling cookies may affect your ability to use the Services.

Loud Crow may also use Flash cookies (locally shared objects) and HTML5 storage (locally stored objects). Locally shared objects are small files similar to browser cookies and are used to remember your settings to personalize the look and feel of the Services. Locally shared objects only collect data in the aggregate.

You may prevent locally shared objects from being placed by disabling locally stored objects in your browser or by visiting www.adobe.com. Locally stored objects, such as HTML5 Web Storage, are used for similar purposes as cookies but typically may contain a greater amount and different types of data than browser cookies.

Loud Crow may also use web beacons and pixel tags to count Users who have visited certain pages or viewed certain advertisements. Web beacons, like cookies, do not include personal data. E-mails and other electronic communications Loud Crow sends to you may contain pixel tags that enable Loud Crow to track your usage of the communication, including whether the communication was opened and/or what links were followed.

2.2.4. Ad Serving Technology

Loud Crow reserves the right to use and disclose the collected non-personal data for purposes of advertisement by Loud Crow or Loud Crow’s trusted partners and contractors. Loud Crow may employ third party ad serving technologies that use certain methods to collect information as a result of ad serving through the Services.

Loud Crow or third parties operating the ad serving technology may use demographic and location information as well as information logged from your hardware or device to ensure that appropriate advertising is presented within the Service. Loud Crow or third parties may collect and use data for this purpose including, but not limited to IP address (including for purposes of determining your coarse location), UDID, MAC, software, applications, hardware, browser information, internet and on-line usage information and in-game information.

The foregoing data may be used and disclosed in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the privacy policy of the company providing the ad serving technology. You recognize and agree that the advertising companies who deliver ads for Loud Crow may combine the information collected with other information they have independently collected from other services or products. These companies collect and use information under their own privacy policies. These ad serving technologies may be integrated into the Services; if you do not want to be subject to this technology, do not use or access the Services. Although Loud Crow may take commercially reasonable steps to instruct such advertising companies to comply with the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy, Loud Crow does not have access to or control of third party technologies.

2.2.5. Location Data

If Loud Crow makes location enabled Services available and you use such Services, then Loud Crow may collect and process your location data to provide location related Services and advertisements. Loud Crow may use various technologies to determine location, such as GPS, Wi-Fi or other network-based data such as IP address. Your GPS location is not accessed without your consent. Notwithstanding Loud Crow’s partners who are providing location related parts of the Service, Loud Crow will not share your geo-location with third parties without your consent. To the extent Loud Crow makes available geo-location to third parties in accordance with this Privacy Policy, it will be provided anonymously. Please note that Loud Crow may share your anonymous coarse location with its partners.

Loud Crow may disclose Users’ personal data to its affiliated companies, contractors or other trusted businesses or persons for the purpose of providing marketing and advertising content to Users. Loud Crow requires that these parties agree to process such personal data based on Loud Crow’s instructions and in compliance with this Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures. Users can unsubscribe from this service at any time.

3.3. Sale of Business
As Loud Crow continues to develop and grow, we may buy or sell parts of a business, which could include personal data as one of the transferred business assets. If Loud Crow becomes involved in a merger, acquisition, or any form of sale of some or all of its assets, it will provide notice before personal data is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

4. Choices for Personal Data
If Loud Crow proposes to use personal data for any purpose other than those described in this Privacy Policy, Loud Crow will obtain the Users’ prior consent or offer the Users an effective way to opt out of the use of personal data for those other purposes.
Users may choose to withdraw their consent to the use, collection or disclosure of personal data outlined in this Policy at any time. If a User withdraws his or her consent, then Loud Crow may no longer be able to provide the same level of Services.
Users are also given the opportunity to “opt-out” of having their personal data used for purposes such as receiving newsletters or other information from Loud Crow.
Withdrawals of consent will not have an effect on data that Loud Crow has provided to third parties in accordance with this Privacy Policy prior to such withdrawals.

5. Information Security

Loud Crow takes appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. Loud Crow employs physical, electronic and/or procedural safeguards to protect its systems and all personal data under its control against unauthorized access and use. All safety and security measures are appropriate to the sensitivity level of the information collected.

6. Accuracy and Access/Control over Personal Data
Loud Crow processes personal data only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Policy. Loud Crow may take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal data processed is accurate, complete and current, but Loud Crow is not responsible for verifying the correctness of personal data.
Loud Crow will allow Users to access their personal data in the custody or control of Loud Crow, and will allow them to:
1. update or correct such personal data;
2. change User preferences with respect to communications, push notifications and other information received from Loud Crow or third parties; or
3. delete the personal data of the Users on Loud Crow’s systems (by submitting a request to Customer Support).
Users can turn off push notifications (if applicable) by visiting the “options” or “settings” page within the relevant app. Users can turn off local notifications by visiting the “options” or “settings” page within the relevant app.
Users can stop further use of your geo-location (for example through “check-ins”) (if applicable) by visiting their device’s settings for the relevant application or the “settings” page for the relevant game. Users can also stop checking in.
Such updates, corrections and changes will not have an effect on other information that Loud Crow maintains, or information that Loud Crow has provided to third parties in accordance with this Privacy Policy prior to such update, correction or change.

7. Retention of Personal Data
Loud Crow stores personal data collected pursuant to this Privacy Policy only as long as is reasonably required to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected or as required or authorized by law.

Loud Crow may still retain some of the data to the extent such retention is necessary to resolve disputes, enforce Loud Crow’s user agreements, and comply with technical and legal requirements and constraints related to the security, integrity and operation of the Services.

8. Enforcement

It is Loud Crow’s policy to contact a complaining user regarding his or her concerns. Loud Crow will cooperate with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal data that cannot be resolved between Loud Crow and an individual.

9. Changes to this Policy

Loud Crow reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy from time to time, so please review it frequently. If Loud Crow makes material or significant changes to this Privacy Policy, Loud Crow may post a notice on Loud Crow’s website along with the updated Privacy Policy.
