What is Personal Information and why would we collect it from you?
‘Personal Information’ is information or an opinion that identifies you as an individual. We would collect and store your email if you signed up for a Dotly Studios or an affiliated product’s newsletter, or where you nominate to specifically allow our games to collect your email. In this case your email would be collected only to keep you informed of new Dotly Studios products and changes to our existing products.
When you elect to join a Dotly Studios mailing list for the purpose of receiving a newsletter we may use that “personal information” to provide you with direct marketing communications about upcoming games, features of our websites and other events and promotions related to our products. You may unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time. If present, all you need to do is unsubscribe from the link in the letter, or let us know in writing that you want to be removed.
If you contact us directly for any reason, we may keep a copy of that correspondence for our records.
Sensitive information is defined in the US Act to include information or opinion about such things as an individual’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, membership of a political association, religious or philosophical beliefs, membership of a professional body, criminal records or health information.
We will not attempt to obtain nor record any sensitive information.
Disclosure of Personal Information
We will not sell, trade, rent or disclose any of the personal information you provide to us for any reason, without your prior consent. Otherwise, your Personal Information will only be disclosed where required or allowable by law.
