While Playful Fox is a Canadian company, the data you provide through the Service may be stored and processed by third parties in countries around the world.  You authorize Playful Fox and third parties acting on our behalf to process your data in any country of their choosing, which may cause your data, including personal and anonymous data, to be subject to privacy protections and legal rights that may not be equivalent to those in your country. 

 

Your personal data is retained until you request its deletion or until Playful Fox no longer requires such data for the purpose for which it was collected. 

 

8.         Children

 

Playful Fox complies with the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and all other applicable laws and regulations concerning children and the Internet.  The Service is not directed to children under the age of 13 and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13.  If we learn that we inadvertently collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible.  If you are a parent or guardian of a child who you believe provided Playful Fox with personal information without your consent, please contact info@playfulfoxgames.com.

 

9.         Do     Not Track Disclosure

 

Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a web or device setting that allows users to request that receivers of personal data stop their tracking activities.  When you choose to turn on the DNT setting in your browser or device or use alternative consumer choice mechanisms, your browser or device sends a special signal to websites, analytics companies, advertising networks, plug in providers and other web services you encounter to stop tracking your activity.  Currently, there are no DNT technology standards and it is possible that there may never be any DNT technology standards.  As a result, we do not respond to DNT requests.

 

10.       California “Shine the Light” Right

 

If you are a California resident, California Civil Code 1798.83 grants you the right to request our disclosure of the categories of personal information we provided to third parties, and the names and addresses of these third parties, for direct marketing purposes during the preceding calendar year.  If you are a California resident and would like to make this request, please contact us using the contact information set forth below.

 

Please note that you may only make this request once per year.
