Effective as of April, 29 2020
Information We Collect
We collect information when you provide information directly to us and when we passively collect information from you, such as from your browser or device by using third-party services.
Information You Provide Directly to Us
We will collect information you provide to us when you contact us or provide feedback. This information may include but is not limited to your name, email address, phone number, mailing address, geographic location and your social media handles. Please note that the provision of this information to us by you is optional. We do not require you to provide us your personal information and we urge you to limit its disclosure to us to the maximum extent practicable.
Device/Usage Information that Is Automatically Collected
We may use third-party web and mobile analytics and advertising services and technologies (such as Google Analytics, Facebook Analytics, Firebase, AppStore Analytics, Tenjin, GameAnalytics, AdMob etc.) to assist in collecting certain information about the devices or computer you use to access the Apps and Sites.
As described further below, we may collect and analyze:
device information and identifiers such as IP addresses, location information (by country and city), unique device identifiers, Google Advertising ID, Apple ID for Advertising, IMEI and TCP/IP address, browser types, screen resolution, browser language, operating system, mobile device carrier information, and
information related to the ways in which you interact with the Apps and Sites, such as referring and exit web pages and URLs, platform type, the number of clicks, content viewed, statistical information about the use of the Apps and Sites (e.g. features you use; screens you viewed, navigation paths between pages or screens, the actions you take; the date and time you used the Apps and Sites, the frequency of your use of the Apps and Sites), error logs, and other similar information.
We do not use our (first-party) cookies. Third parties may collect data about your use of the Sites through the use of online tracking technologies, like cookies. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your device when you visit a website, that enables third parties that has set it to:
recognize your device;
understand the web pages of the Site you have visited and the referral sites that have led you to the Site;
perform analytics; and
assist with security administrative functions.
Please note that you can change your settings to notify you when a cookie is being set or updated, or to block cookies altogether. Please consult the “Help” section of your browser for more information.
Mobile devices may use other tracking files which are similar to cookies (for example iOS devices use Apple’s Advertising Identifier and Identifier For Vendor, and Android devices use Google's Advertising ID).
We also use third-party software development kits (SDKs), which are blocks of code provided by our analytics or advertising partners that we may instal in our Apps. SDKs help these third parties and us understand how you interact with our Apps and collect certain information about the device and network you use to access the Apps. SDKs may collect above-mentioned identifiers associated with your device or our Apps. Please refer to our partners' privacy and data sharing statements found on their respective websites for more information (see Section “Information We Collect” above for the links).
To express the choice not to have information about your use of mobile ads used for interest-based advertising purposes on your iOS mobile device, you should follow this path: Launch "Settings" > Tap on "Privacy" and scroll down and tap on "Advertising" > Toggle on "Limit Ad Tracking." To block Android ID on your Android device, you should follow this path: Launch "Settings" > Tap on Google > Ads and then turn on ‘Opt out of Ads Personalization’. You can also reset your advertising ID from there by tapping "Reset Advertising Identifier."
If you opt-out of having your information collected and used by us and our third-party advertising partners for interest-based advertising purposes, you will continue to receive ads, but such ads will not be tailored to your specific interests based on web viewing data collected from your device.

We may disclose your information if required to do so by law or on a good faith belief that such disclosure is permitted by this Policy or reasonably necessary or appropriate for any of the following reasons: (i) to comply with legal process; (ii) to enforce or apply our Terms and this Policy, or other contracts with you, including investigation of potential violations thereof; (iii) to respond to your requests for customer service; and/or (iv) to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Beathead, our agents and affiliates, our users, and the public.

Legal Basis for Processing Personal Data
The laws in some jurisdictions require companies to tell you about the legal ground they rely on to use or disclose information that can be directly linked to or used to identify you. To the extent those laws apply, our legal grounds for processing such information are as follows:
To Honor Our Contractual Commitments to You. Much of our processing of information is to meet our contractual obligations to provide services to our users.
Legitimate Interests. In many cases, we handle information on the ground that it furthers our legitimate interests in ways that are not overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the affected individuals, these include (i) customer service, (ii) marketing and advertising, (iii) protecting our users, personnel, and property, (iv) analyzing and improving our business, (v) managing legal issues. We may also process information for the same legitimate interests of our users and business partners.
Legal Compliance. We may need to use and disclose information in certain ways to comply with our legal obligations.
Consent. Where required by law, and in some other cases where legally permissible, we handle information on the basis of consent. Where we handle your information on the basis of consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent; in accordance with applicable law.
Your Choices and Data Subject Rights
Individuals in the European Economic Area and other jurisdictions have certain legal rights (subject to applicable exceptions and limitations) to obtain confirmation of whether we hold certain information about them, to access such information, and to obtain its correction or deletion in appropriate circumstances. You may have the right to object to our handling of your information, restrict our processing of your information, and to withdraw any consent you have provided. To exercise these rights, please email us at email@example.com with the nature of your request. You also have the right to go directly to the relevant supervisory or legal authority, but we encourage you to contact us so that we may resolve your concerns directly as best and as promptly as we can.
We may share your information with trusted service providers or business partners in countries other than your country of residence in accordance with applicable law. This means that some of your information may be processed in the countries, which may not offer the same level of protection as the privacy laws of your jurisdiction. By providing us with your information, you acknowledge any such transfer, storage or use. If we provide any information about you to any third parties information processors located outside of the EEA, we will take appropriate measures to ensure such companies protect your information adequately in accordance with this Policy and other data protection laws to govern the transfers of such data.
We have implemented technical, physical, and organizational security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and/or alteration of your information. These safeguards vary based on the sensitivity of the information that we collect and store. However, we cannot and do not guarantee that these measures will prevent every unauthorized attempt to access, use, or disclose your information since despite our efforts, no Internet and/or other electronic transmissions can be completely secure.
The Apps and Sites are intended for users over the age of 18 and are not directed at children under the age of 13. If we become aware that we have collected personal information (as defined by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act) from children under the age of 13, or personal data (as defined by the EU GDPR) from children under the age of 16, we will take reasonable steps to delete it as soon as practicable.
Third-Party Advertisements, Links and Services
The Apps and Sites may contain third-party advertisements and links to third-party websites (e.g., social media sites like Facebook, Youtube and Instagram), third-party plug-ins and other services. If you choose to follow an ad or use these sites or features, you may disclose your information not just to those third-parties, but also to their users and the public more generally depending on how their services function. Beathead is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such third party websites or services. The collection, use and disclosure of your information will be subject to the privacy policies of the third party websites or services, and not this Policy. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of each and every site you visit.
Changes to this Policy
We will continue to evaluate this Policy as we update and expand our Apps and Sites, and we may make changes to the Policy accordingly. We will post any changes here and revise the date last updated above. We encourage you to check this page periodically for updates to stay informed on how we collect, use and share your information. If we make material changes to this Policy, we will provide you with notice as required by law.

Rights of California Residents
You have the below-listed rights under the CCPA with respect to your Personal Data:
Right to Know. You have the right to request that we disclose to you, specifically, beyond the general statement above, the categories and specific elements of personal information collected about you including the source of the information and our use of it or the personal information that was disclosed or sold to third parties.
Right to Request Deletion. You have the right, under certain circumstances, to request that we delete the personal information we collected from you. Please note that this right is not absolute.

Right to Opt-out. You have the right, at any time, to request that we not sell your personal information.
Right to Non-discrimination. You have the right not to be discriminated against for exercising any of your rights under the CCPA.

You may only exercise your right to know up to two different times in a 12 month period. When you submit a request, we may ask you to fill out a request form. The CCPA only allows us to act on your request if we can verify your identity or your authority to make the request, so you will also need to follow our instructions for identity verification. If you make a verifiable request per the above, we will confirm our receipt and respond in the time frames prescribed by the CCPA.
