To foster the Member community, we intend to convey—and support—various promotions via emails to Members.

Members who wish to do so, may use the “unsubscribe from this list” or “update subscription preferences” links located at the bottom of any email you receive from Boreal Foundry.
All Members must be over the age of 13 to use our Online Services, and at least 18 years of age to access certain games.

If you are a parent or guardian and are concerned about the transfer of personal information about your child, please do not allow your child to access the Online Services and contact email@example.com.
Links to other websites are provided for Member convenience and information; those links have their own terms, conditions, and privacy policies. Members may also be bound by the separate terms of their respective software, products, platforms, hardware and equipment. We recommend that you carefully review all such terms.
Members understand and agree that the Online Service is provided “AS-IS” and without warranties or duties of any kind.

You may choose to voluntarily provide us with various personal information and non-personal information through your use of the Online Services. We also may use “cookies” and other passive technologies including clear gifs to collect certain non-personal information from you in connection with your use of the Online Services, such as the pages you visit and the features you use. Our cookies are linked to your IP or MAC address.
Personal information is information that identifies you and that may be used to contact you online or offline. Boreal Foundry collects personal information from you on a voluntary basis. When you submit personal information to Boreal Foundry, it will usually take the form of:

Subscribing to newsletters or alerts;
Posting in or commenting on our message boards, forums, news blogs, chat rooms, or other Online Services;
Purchasing products or services through our online stores;
Using “tell a friend,” “email this page,” or other similar features;
Requesting technical support;
Downloading demos, programs, or software;
Participating in polls, surveys, and questionnaires; or
Otherwise through use of our software, including console products, mobile products, and personal computer products, and through the use of our online products or Online Services where personal information is required for use and/or participation.
The types of information collected in connection with the activities listed above can vary depending on your activity. The information we collect may include:
first and/or last name;
street and/or mailing address and zip code;
photographic images, if uploaded by user;
credit card number, if provided for purchases;
IP or MAC address;
game device identifier;

In addition, we may collect generalized geographic information about you or your systems, such as your hardware configuration, console ID, software products played, survey data, purchases, IP address and the systems you have played on. We may combine the information with your personal information. Prize winners may be required to provide additional information for prize fulfillment.
Public Information Including Message Boards, Forums, News Blogs and Comments: Whenever you give out personal information in public areas such as on a message board, chat room, comment field, or profile page, that information can be collected and used by other people. Information that you disclose in any of these forums is public information, for which no expectation of privacy or confidentiality exists. You should be aware that any personal information you submit in the course of these public activities can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages or identify you. If you post a video, image, photo, or other content through one of these services for public view, you should be aware that these may be viewed, collected, copied, and/or used by other users without your consent. If your screen name or an ID contains your real name, that name will be made publicly available on leaderboards and elsewhere. Therefore, you are strongly encouraged not to disclose personal information while using our services or use personal information to identify yourself while using our services. You are responsible for any public information or content you post using Boreal Foundry’s services.
E-mail Correspondence: We may provide e-mail addresses or forms to which visitors can send us questions or comments, or which visitors can use to request customer support. In the process of receiving and responding to such requests, we may collect personal information about you, such as your e-mail address or any other personal data contained in the body of your e-mail message. By allowing you to send us these requests, we are not attempting to solicit personal information from you. We only use the information for the purpose of responding to your questions and/or comments or to provide customer support. In most cases, your message is deleted immediately after we’ve resolved your inquiry; however, in some instances, copies of your requests may be kept on file for our records, for legal and/or quality control purposes, or to provide ongoing support services you have requested. If we obtain actual knowledge that the person with whom we’re communicating is a child under the age of thirteen, we promptly delete the child’s e-mail address and messages.
Your refusal to submit personal information may limit your ability to participate in some activities, such as sweepstakes or the use of certain Online Services. As described above, regardless of registration we may publish gameplay boards and multiplayer match records containing certain information as a result of your use of the products, where they are essential components of the services we offer you and other users.
Cookies: A “cookie” is a small bit of record-keeping information that websites often store on a user’s computer. Our cookies are typically used to quickly identify a user’s computer, browser, or device and to “remember” things about prior visits (such as the user’s use of various features on the service). You can disable cookies or set your browser to alert you when cookies are being sent to your computer; however, disabling cookies may affect your ability to use certain Online Services.
Web Beacons: A “web beacon” is an electronic image that allows websites to count users who have visited certain pages or viewed certain advertisements.
Internet Log Files: Boreal Foundry may also keep track of IP addresses used to access its Online Services for various reasons. An IP address is a number that is used by a networked device and will identify your point of connection to the internet. Depending on your network configuration, it may also identify your computer, or other device. A MAC address or other device ID identifies one specific piece of hardware. These log files are tied to your personal information in certain circumstances, such as if you have linked your console user account to Online Service accounts offered by Boreal Foundry.
Analytic Metrics Tools and Other Technologies: Other information that may be passively collected by Boreal Foundry includes log files that record information about your hardware, product use, service use, or website use, including website navigation and game telemetry activity. We also use these log file entries for our internal marketing, service design, technical support, and demographic studies, so we can constantly improve the Online Services we provide you.
From time to time, Boreal Foundry may employ vendors to perform services on Boreal Foundry’s behalf. These vendors provide internal support to Boreal Foundry by operating some of the services we provide you such as contest entry collection and email services. Although these vendors, not Boreal Foundry, may collect, use, or maintain the information in connection with the Online Services, Boreal Foundry still requires that they adhere to Boreal Foundry’s stated privacy policies and that they not share your personal information with third parties or use the information for their own marketing purposes.
We may share your personal and other information with third parties in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose you or us to legal liability, including as required by law enforcement or other government officials. We also may share your personal and other information with third parties when we have reason to believe that a disclosure is necessary to address potential or actual injury or interference with our rights, property, operations, users, or others who may be harmed or may suffer loss or damage, or when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, investigate, or enforce our policies, terms and conditions, combat fraud and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on Boreal Foundry.
In addition, your personal and other information may be disclosed to a potential or actual successor or assign in connection with a proposed or consummated merger, acquisition, reorganization, bankruptcy, or other similar event involving all or a portion of Boreal Foundry, Boreal Foundry’s customer information may be transferred to our successor or assign.
We may ask you for consent to collect or use your personal information for specific purposes. We also process your information in order to fulfil your requests, such as to complete transactions with you and to allow you to play games online. We may also process your information in accordance with our policies or when required by law. We also process your information in accordance with law to support the interests of our business, operations, and services, such as to ensure the proper function, security, or integrity of our services.
You have the right to withdraw your consent for processing of your personal information for marketing purposes at any time. If you do not want to receive certain communications such as newsletters or promotional offers, you may indicate your preference at the time your personal information is requested or later opt-out by using the methods listed below. In addition to the methods below, along with every communication sent to you, Boreal Foundry gives you the opportunity to discontinue receiving future communications on each communication it sends by providing links at the bottom of the email communication.
In addition, you may to request to delete, restrict, correct, or receive a copy of the personal information collected about you. To the extent these rights apply in your country, they may be limited in some situations, for example where Boreal Foundry is under a legal requirement to retain certain information. Requests may be sent via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or you may write to us at Boreal Foundry Oy c/o A Grid PL 13000, 00076 Aalto. Please indicate your country of residence in your correspondence.
Data Retention: We will retain your personal information for as long as we provide services where the information is collected. After such time, we will either delete or anonymize your information or, if this is not possible (e.g., because the information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your information and isolate it from any further use until deletion occurs. If you wish to request that we no longer use your personal information to provide you services, please contact us as described herein. If information is changed or deleted, we may still retain some of your information in our files to resolve disputes, administer our services, comply with technical and legal requirements, and/or other constraints related to the security, integrity, and operation of our Online Services.
In all cases for our Online Services, we will respond to your request for access to update, delete, or correct inaccuracies to your personal information.
Boreal Foundry does not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 years old. If we become aware that a child under 13 has submitted information to Boreal Foundry, we delete this information following its discovery. We encourage parents to instruct their children to never give out their real names, addresses, or phone numbers, without permission, when using the Internet.
To protect your personal information, Boreal Foundry follows generally accepted industry standards and maintains reasonable safeguards to attempt to ensure the security, integrity, and privacy of the information you have provided. Boreal Foundry has security measures in place designed to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Personal information collected by Boreal Foundry is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the public (e.g., locked rooms). However, no system can be 100% secure and human errors occur, so there is the possibility that there could be unauthorized access to your information. By using our services, you assume all such risks.
All information collected or received by Boreal Foundry in connection with the Online Services is collected in, processed in, or transferred to the United States of America. While your information is in another jurisdiction, it may be accessed by the courts, law enforcement, and national security authorities pursuant to the laws of those jurisdictions. If you are a consumer residing in the European Union, Boreal Foundry relies on consent of the individual to transfer personal information from the European Economic Area (EEA) to non-EEA countries. By using our services, you expressly consent to such collection, transfer, and processing. Backup data and administrative data may also be stored on media or servers located in the United States of America.
You may be able to sign up for or access the Online Services through third-party platforms such as mobile devices. When you submit personal information to Boreal Foundry via a third-party platform, your use of that platform is also governed by its terms of service, privacy policies and/or code of conduct. Please review each company’s governing policies before using their services.
