Bro3 Games is committed to protecting the privacy of its users and provide them a better social gaming experience ("users" or "you").
Please note that Bro3 Games is not responsible for the actions of third parties, the content of their sites, the use of information you provide to them or any services they may offer.
Users in certain jurisdictions have a right to access personal information held about themselves. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with applicable law.
Bro3 Games only collects Personal Information to the extent necessary to fulfil one or more of its functions and activities, and will do so only by fair and reasonable means. Generally, we will collect Personal Information directly from the users, but in some circumstances (including as outlined below), it may be necessary for us to collect information from a third party source.
Our legal basis for collecting and using the information depends on what the information is and the context in which we collect it.
Generally, we’ll normally process your personal Information for legitimate interest of efficiently fulfilling our contractual and legal obligations, account management, management reporting (including at our corporate group level), market review and analysis, promotion of our products and services and business development. In some cases the processing is necessary to perform our contract with you (i.e., our Terms of Service) or to fulfill legal obligations, or to protect your vital interests or those of another person (for example, another user).
If we ask you to provide information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, this will normally be clear from the context in which we are requesting your information (for example, when we ask you to provide a username to access our Services, this will be to create an account for you in accordance with our Terms of Service), and, if not, we will provide an explanation to you at the relevant time. We will also make clear whether providing information is mandatory.
Every correspondence with you is logged and stored within our systems. when you provide us additional information other than the information mentioned in this policy (such as information revealing health or medical condition), you give us your explicit consent to process it for the intended purpose.
We do not sell personal information of our users and have not done so in the preceding 12 months. We also do not share your personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless you affirmatively agree to such disclosure, typically by "opting in" to receive information from a third party that is participating in a sweepstakes or other promotion on one of our sites. If you do ask us to share your personal information with a third party for its marketing purposes, we will only share information in connection with that specific promotion, as we do not share information with any third party (other than our service providers) on a continual basis.
Some games or parts of our Services may use a more traditional registration or account set-up process where you may be asked to give us some or all of the following information:
We may also let you create a user profile that other Bro3 Games users can see. Your user profile may include information like:

You are responsible for ensuring your collection and sharing with us of your contacts’ information is compliant with applicable laws; this may require you to get your contacts’ permission before you give their contact details to us. We may also get information about you from other Bro3 Games users importing or entering their contacts. We use and may store this contact information to help you and your contacts connect through our Services. If you want to remove your contacts stored by us, follow any instructions provided in the Service to request that we remove them from our systems or Contact Us.

Bro3 Games may obtain the billing and payment information that you provide when your purchase is processed by someone else (like Facebook, Apple or Google) such as when you purchase something in a game you play on a social network or that you downloaded on your mobile device. Our Terms of Service explain our policies and terms relevant to our charges, billing practices, third-party credits and virtual currencies.
If you purchase virtual currency or virtual items in a Bro3 Games’ game, our third-party payment processor will collect the billing and financial information it needs to process your charges. This may include your postal address, e-mail address and financial information.

Like many websites, Bro3 Games and service providers acting on our behalf, like Google Analytics, store log files and use tracking technologies such as "cookies" to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your computer’s hard disk or your mobile device for record-keeping purposes. The Service may send cookies to a computer or a mobile device when a user accesses or views a Service. Information contained in a cookie may be linked to personal information for purposes such as improving the quality of Bro3 Games’ Service, tailoring recommendations to interests, and making the Service easier to use.
Third party advertisers on the Services may also use, place or read cookies or other technologies as described below on your browser, and those practices are subject to their own policies. Cookies can be disabled at any time by changing your web browser’s options to stop accepting cookies, to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit or limit the type of cookies you allow. Flash cookies operate differently than browser cookies and cookie management tools available in a web browser may not remove flash cookies. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all features, portions or functionalities of the Service.
We and our service providers may also employ other technologies including (i) web beacons, which allow us to know if a certain page was visited or whether an e-mail was opened; (ii) tracking pixels, which allow us or our advertising partners to advertise more efficiently and effectively by excluding our current users from certain promotional messages, identifying the source of a new installation or delivering ads to you on other websites; and (iii) local shared objects also known as flash cookies, which help us to reduce fraud, remember your in-game preferences and speed up load times.
We, our service providers, and our business partners use these cookies and other similar technologies to collect and analyze certain kinds of technical information, including:
In some cases, we will connect the above information with your social network ID or Bro3 Games user ID.

We may collect or receive information about you from other sources like third-party information providers. We use this information along with information you provide us directly, for example, to help you and your friends connect or to serve you advertising more tailored to your interests.
If you would like to learn more about how we secure your information, please see Security of Your Information section below.
We use your information under several legal bases, including to establish and perform our contract with you, for our legitimate interests, to comply with our legal obligations, to establish, use and protect Bro3 Games’ rights, or otherwise with your consent.
The main use of the information we collect, and store is to provide you with the Services you request from us and to improve your gaming experience, but there are other uses as well. The uses for which we collect and store your information may include:
One important use of your information is communication. If you have provided your e-mail address to Bro3 Games, we will use it to respond to customer support inquiries, and keep you informed of your in-game activity, including comments from friends, let you know about in-game status and promotions as well as tell you about gift and neighbor requests. Some messages, like invites for friends to join you in a game, may include your name and profile photo. We may also send promotional e-mail messages and promotional SMS messages (e.g. text messages) ("Promotional Communications") directly or in partnership with other parties, in accordance with your marketing preferences. Each Promotional Communication will offer you choices about receiving additional messages. Receipt of such communications depends on Bro3 Games having certain contact information from you.
We may disclose or publish aggregated and analytical information (information about you and other users collectively that is not intended to specifically identify you) and other non-personal information about our users for industry analysis, demographic profiling, marketing, analytics, advertising, and other business purposes.
In addition, We may share your information, including personal information, with third parties or allow third parties to collect this information from our Services in the following circumstances:
Bro3 Games’ games and Services support and often encourage you to interact with other players. In most Bro3 Games games, if you play through a social network or register through a social network (for example, Facebook Connect), your social network friends will see your name, profile photo and descriptions of your game activity. Correspondingly, in many Bro3 Games games, other users, regardless of whether they are your social network friends or not, will be able to see descriptions of your game activity (including the identification of any Bro3 Games games you have played), communicate with you within our Services, and view your game profile, which may include your name or a “game name” and your profile photo. Other users may also be able to send you game requests or even friend requests through the related social network’s or Bro3 Games’ communication channels.
We use advertising to enable us to offer some of our games, game features, and other Services for free. These advertisements may include, without limitation, banner ads on game boards or Services themselves, as full-screen ads between moves or games, or through an “offer wall” in which third-party advertisers offer to provide virtual currency or other in-game items to players in exchange for watching an advertisement or for completing a task, such as signing up for an account with one of the advertisers, completing a survey, or finishing a particular game level. Offer walls are hosted by third-party offer wall providers, and the offers are made by third-party advertisers, not by Bro3 Games.
We do not actively share personal information that directly identifies you with third-party advertisers for their direct marketing purposes unless you give us your consent.
To enable advertisers, ad networks, and offer wall providers to serve you with more relevant ads, they may collect, or we may collect and share with them, the following types of information when you use our Services:
The information collected may be used to:
Advertisers or ad networks may collect this information through the use of tracking technologies like browser cookies and web beacons, and they may use a single tracking technology or multiple tracking technologies at the same time.

These opt-out tools are provided by third parties, not Bro3 Games. Bro3 Games does not control, operate, or endorse these tools or the choices that advertisers and others provide through these tools. They are listed here only as a convenience for users.
In addition, If you do not want to receive behavioral in-application advertisements from third parties that relate to your interests on your mobile device, you may adjust the ad tracking settings on your device (such as turning on “Limit Ad Tracking”). You can also reset the “Advertising Identifier” (such as an IDFA) from your mobile device’s settings page, which will prevent continued use of existing behavioral data tied to your previous “Advertising Identifier.” Further, depending on the platform provider (such as Apple or Google), you may be able to download apps, such as the Digital Advertising Alliance’s “AppChoices” app, that offer to provide you with control regarding the collection and use of cross-app data for behavioral advertising. Like the opt-out tools mentioned above for web, these mobile opt-out tools are provided by third parties, not Bro3 Games. Bro3 Games does not control,operate or endorse these tools or the choices that advertisers and others provide through these tools.
Please note that you may still receive third-party advertisements in Bro3 Games’ Services after using these opt-out tools, but the advertising you see may be less relevant to your interests.

Generally speaking, most of our Services are not intended for children under the age of 13 (or under 16 for children located in the European Countries) (collectively, “Children”). Children are not permitted to use these Services, and we do not knowingly collect any personal information from Children.
We do our best to ensure that we do not collect information from or about children.
Though our Services do not target Children as the primary audience, we may collect age information before allowing a user to proceed for certain Services. For users who identify themselves as Children in our age-gate on such Services, if we allow Children to use the Services, we will either provide a version of that Service that does not collect, use, or disclose “personal information” (as defined in the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”)), except as permitted by COPPA, or obtain legally valid parental consent.
If we learn that we have inadvertently gathered personal information that is not subject to a COPPA exception from a Child, we will take reasonable measures to promptly remove that information from our records.
When we intend to collect personal information from children, we take additional steps to protect children’s privacy, including:
Bro3 Games respects the privacy of parents and children and is committed to complying with COPPA. If a parent believes that his or her child has submitted personal information to Bro3 Games, he or she can contact us via emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will take steps to promptly delete the information upon learning that it relates to a child under the age of 13 (16 in the EU). We recognize the importance of safeguarding the privacy of children and encourage parents to check and monitor their children's use of online activities regularly.
If you have an account registered directly with Bro3 Games, your profile information is protected by the password you use to access your Bro3 Games account. It is important that you protect and maintain your Bro3 Games account’s security and that you immediately tell us of any unauthorized use of your account. If you forget the password to your Bro3 Games account, the Services allow you to request that instructions be sent to you that explain how to reset your password. If you access our Services through a social network and your social network account is hacked or otherwise compromised, this may lead to someone accessing or deleting your Bro3 Games game accounts without your permission. So, be careful to keep your social network account information, including your social network account password, secure as well. We urge you to log out of your Bro3 Games account and any social network account you have used to access our Services when you are finished using them.
When you sign into your Bro3 Games account or enter payment information, we and our third-party payment processor use encryption to transmit that information.
While we take precautions against possible security breaches of our Services and our customer databases and records, no website or Internet transmission is completely secure. We cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur, and we cannot guarantee the security of your information while it is being transmitted to our Service. Any transmission is at your own risk. If you have questions about the security of our websites, please Contact Us.

As part of our international operations, we may transfer your personal data to our “Affiliated Entities,” which are any other corporate entities under common ownership with Bro3 Games, or to our business partners and service providers from time to time for our legitimate business purposes. For example, Bro3 Games may provide certain services to its Affiliates.

Personal information collected in the European Countries may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside of the European Countries. The data we hold may also be processed by employees operating outside of the European Countries who work for us, one of our Affiliated Entities, or one of our business partners or service providers. This staff may be engaged in, among other things, marketing communication with users and product development. When we transfer your personal data internationally we will take reasonable steps to ensure that your data is treated securely, lawfully, and in the manner we describe here. Please note that laws vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, so the privacy laws applicable to the places where your data is transferred to or stored, used, or processed in, may be different from the privacy laws applicable to the place where you are resident.
Additionally, if we share with entities which are not subject to the Privacy Shield framework, we make sure that these entities ensure an adequate level of protection, the transfer is supported by the European Commission’s standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to a country outside the European Countries. These standard contractual clauses are available here.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we collect or process your personal information and whether we can achiev reasonably those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
We may retain some information for a few years after you have closed your account with us if this is necessary to meet our legal obligations or to exercise, defend or establish legal rights.
We will address your concerns and attempt to resolve any privacy issues in a timely manner.
