  1. Use and disclosure of information

When you sign up for the Game or register an account in or for the Game, you create your own profile and privacy settings. Certain profile information, for example for user name, may be displayed in or in relation to the Game. We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services offered that we think may be of interest to you. Your profile information may be edited by you when you access the Game. Flamebait and/or the platform/service providers may send you Game service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the Game. Flamebait reserves the right to send you notices about your account even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications. Flamebait may use information in your profile without identifying you as an individual to third parties. We do this for purposes such as personalizing advertisements and promotions so that we can provide you the best Game experience and enjoyment etc. Flamebait believe this benefits you and might be interesting to you. Generally, the personally identifiable information collected by Flamebait will only be used for the particular purpose for which it was collected. Flamebait may also transfer, disclose or share your personally identifiable information with certain partners and affiliates, and third parties who may be engaged by it specifically to handle and deliver certain activities necessary to operate the Game (e.g., processing orders and payments etc.); these third parties only have access to personal information needed to perform their functions. Additionally, in the event of a corporate reorganization (e.g., all or substantially all of the assets relating to Flamebait are transferred or sold to another entity), personally identifiable information submitted to Flamebait may be transferred to the acquiring entity. Flamebait may also disclose personally identifiable information to third parties in order to comply with national, international, federal, state or local laws, in response to requests by law enforcement agencies, to enforce its Terms of Use, or to protect the rights, property or safety of Flamebait, the Game, End Users etc. You agree to and accept that we may also occasionally use your email address to send you announcements regarding the Game, our products and services and/or business that may be of interest to you.

We do not knowingly collect personal information such as name and email address from children under the age of 13 in the Game. We believe it is important to safeguard the privacy of children and encourage parents to regularly monitor their children’s use of online activities.
