INTRODUCTIONIn the face of new challenges and dangers in maintaining the security of personal information arising from online business, it is necessary to pay particular attention to privacy. That is why we at Adventure City Games are seriously concerned about the privacy of your personal information and are committed to respecting the confidentiality of the information we collect.
Adventure City Games is committed to respecting, in accordance with this Policy (hereinafter the "Policy") and applicable laws in Canada and Quebec, the obligations regarding the collection and processing of your personal and confidential information, obtained in the course of operating its business, so that everyone can benefit from the respect of their privacy.
In this context, Adventure City Games wishes to ensure the accuracy, security and confidentiality of your personal information, and not to collect, use or disclose your personal information other than in accordance with this Policy and such applicable laws. The Policy describes the information Adventure City Games may collect in the course of its business from its Users.
The Policy also describes, among other things, how Adventure City Games collects, processes, maintains and uses your information and the circumstances under which it may be transferred to third parties. The Policy explains your rights regarding the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information.
SCOPE OF THE POLICYWe collect your personal information as part of our mission to offer as many people as possible the opportunity to get out of their homes, play an entertaining game at a time of their choosing and discover a city (or rediscover their city) in a different and fun way, by making products/content/other available on our Platform.
By browsing the Platform or subscribing to our publications by email, the User agrees to the terms and conditions of this Policy. You agree that your personal information collected when filling out any online form for the purpose of, among other things, making contact, uploading content to the Platform, or rendering other product-related services, will be transmitted to appropriate and authorized Adventure City Games personnel. Adventure City Games will only disclose to third parties whose involvement is strictly necessary to deliver the Products and/or to maintain our business relationship with you, if any, the information necessary for these purposes (the aforementioned third parties may hereinafter be collectively referred to as "Third-Party Providers").
By providing Adventure City Games with your personal information, you authorize Adventure City Games to use and disclose such information to Third Party Providers, if any, in connection with the delivery of products, the administration of our contractual relationship, our business relationship with you, and in accordance with this Policy and as permitted or required by law, as well as implicitly, if the circumstances so indicate.
In addition, Adventure City Games will seek your permission before using your personal information for purposes other than those for which you originally consented under the Policy.
Finally, you may withdraw your consent at any time, subject to legal and contractual restrictions and reasonable notice. Please be aware, however, that without your consent, Adventure City Games may not be able to provide or continue to provide you with some of the services or information that may be useful to you.
If you provide Adventure City Games or its Third-Party Providers with personal information about another individual or entity, you agree that you have the necessary authorization to do so and/or that you have obtained all necessary consents from that third party to allow us to collect, use and disclose their personal information for the purposes set out in this Policy.
