Where will your information be stored? The information we hold will primarily be stored and processed in the United States of America, but there may be circumstances where we need to work with trusted third parties outside of the United States of America in order to provide the DystopianRP Services to you (e.g. where we run game servers outside of the US). Any third parties we use outside the United States of America to store and process your data will be in line with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield. By submitting your personal information, you explicitly agree to such transfer, storing or processing of data outside the United States of America. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that this information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

All information we hold is stored on our secure servers which we own or license from appropriate third parties.

Perform our agreement with you: provide the DystopianRP Services to you, including: to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts between you and us; allow you to participate in interactive features of the DystopianRP Services when you choose to do so; and provide you with chat functionality and other communication systems.

We will never share your information with third parties for their own marketing purposes without first obtaining your consent. We may engage third party service providers in the course of providing the DystopianRP Services to you (e.g. data storage, server hosting, customer and technical support, game analytics etc) which may require them to access your information on our behalf. We will ensure there are appropriate contractual arrangements in place with any such third party service providers to protect your information. Those third parties may also collect some information directly from you (e.g. IP address, unique identifiers etc) subject to their own privacy policies. We may share your information within the DystopianRP group for the purpose of providing the DystopianRP Services.


In the unlikely event of a reorganization or merger of DystopianRP we may transfer personal information to an involved third party who will protect this to at least the same level as we do in this Privacy Policy.

§06 - USER DISSEMINATION OF INFORMATION

You have the option to share your own personal information with others parties, in which case it will be governed by those parties’ own privacy policies – make sure to take a look at them.

Please remember that any communications you have via the DystopianRP Services may reveal details about you. Also, any information you post publicly will be publicly available to other people. We are not responsible for your use of any otherwise private personal information which you make available, or the activities of other users or other third parties to whom you give or make available your information or content. DystopianRP Services may, from time to time, contain or connect you with third party content or services. Our Privacy Policy does not extend to external sites or companies, so please refer directly to their privacy policies.

§07 - DATA RETENTION

We retain your information for as long as needed to provide the DystopianRP Services to you or longer where permitted by law.

Data shall be retained as long as necessary for the purpose for which the data was originally collected. As detailed below, depending on where you live you may have certain legal rights to object to our collection and use of your data, but this may mean some or all DystopianRP Services become unavailable to you. We also reserve the right to retain your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, maintain appropriate business records and enforce our agreements.

§08 - YOUR RIGHTS

You have rights about how your personal information is used, which can vary depending on where you live. If you have any questions, please contact us at admin@dystopianrp.org

You have the right to ask us not to process your personal information for marketing purposes. You can change your email settings to unsubscribe from email communications.

Depending on where you live, you may have additional privacy rights. For example, in the EU (particularly under the new GDPR) you have the right to access and obtain a copy of your personal data we possess; you have the legal right to ask us to rectify/correct your personal data; and you may have the legal right to contact us to request that we delete your personal data from our system. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to honor your request, but we may decline requests that are unreasonably repetitive, are disproportionate, infringe the privacy of others or as otherwise permitted by law. Please note though that by withdrawing your consent or otherwise objecting to certain processing of your information, some DystopianRP Services will no longer function properly or be completely unavailable to you.

Under California law, California residents who have an established business relationship with us have the right to request certain information with respect to the types of personal information we have shared with third parties for their direct marketing purposes, and the identities of those third parties, within the immediately preceding calendar year, subject to certain exceptions. All requests for such information must be in email and sent to: admin@dystopianrp.org This same California law permits us to provide you, in response to your written request, with a cost-free means to choose not to have your information shared rather than providing the above described information. You may exercise that choice by contacting us at the address above.
