Carbon Games Inc.
Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us.

At Carbon Games Inc. ("Carbon Games," "we," or "us"), we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don't ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • We don't share your personal information with anyone, except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don't store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • We make super awesome games.

This is our Privacy Policy, which is based on these fundamental principles. If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal information, please contact our support team by email at legal@carbongames.com.

We own and operate the carbongames.com website (the "Site") and the AirMech™ computer game (the "Game"). It is our policy to respect your privacy regarding any personal information we may collect while operating the Site and the Game.

Website Visitors

Like most website and game operators, Carbon Games collects non-personally identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose for collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use the Site and the Game. From time to time, we may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Site or the Game.

We also collect potentially personally identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for visitors that log in to the Site. We only use and disclose logged-in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that we use and disclose personally identifying information as described in this Privacy Policy.

Gathering Personally Identifying Information

Certain users of the Site and the Game choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather personally identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of our interaction with our users. In each case, we collect only the information that is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the user's interaction with us. We do not disclose personally identifying information other than as described in this Privacy Policy. And visitors always can refuse to supply personally identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Site activities, such as participating in forums, or playing the Game.

Registered users of the Site or the Game will have the opportunity to create a username. This username will serve as an identification of the user within the Site and the Game and may be published within certain areas of the Site and the Game, such as on leaderboards or in connection with the user's comments or posts to our blogs or forums. A user should exercise care to create a username that does not contain personally identifiable information but otherwise complies with our Terms of Use.

Aggregated Statistics

Carbon Games may collect statistics about the behavior of the users of the Site and the Game. We may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, we do not disclose personally identifying information other than as described in this Privacy Policy.

Protection of Certain Personally Identifying Information

We may disclose your personally identifying information only to our employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (a) need to know the information to process it on our behalf or to provide services available through the Site or the Game and (b) have agreed to keep the information confidential and not disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country. By using the Site or the Game, you consent to the transfer of your personally identifying information as described in this paragraph.

We will not rent or sell personally identifying information to anyone. However, we will disclose personally identifying information in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect our property or rights, third parties, or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of the Site and have supplied your email address, we occasionally may send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date regarding our products and services. We typically use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.

Carbon Games will take commercially reasonable measures to protect against the unauthorized access, use, disclosure, alteration, or destruction of your personally identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. We use cookies to help us identify and track visitors, their usage of the Site and the Game and their access preferences. If you do not wish to have cookies placed on your computer, you may set your browser to refuse cookies before using the Site, with the drawback that certain features of the Site may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Disclosure Beyond Our Control

The Site includes sections for interactive blogs and forums to which users with a registered account may post. In addition, within the Game, you may participate in real-time interactive chat with other players. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in the blogs, forums, or in-game chat becomes public information in which you relinquish any expectation of privacy. Also, please remember that Carbon Games asks that you not disclose any personal information when posting in the blogs, forums, or in-game chat, and you should exercise caution when deciding what information to share. We reserve the right, but do not have the obligation, to monitor your use of the blogs, forums, and in-game chat.

Business Transfers

If Carbon Games, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or if Carbon Games goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information will be transferred to and acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that any acquirer of Carbon Games or its assets may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

Advertisements

Ads appearing on the Site or the Game may be delivered to users by advertisers, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Carbon Games and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers. You should review the privacy policies of our advertisers to understand their information collection practices.

Children

We will not permit individuals age 13 or younger to register and obtain an account, and we request that such individuals do not provide any personally identifiable information to us through the Site or the Game. If a parent or legal guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with personally identifiable information, he or she should contact us at legal@carbongames.com, and we will delete the information.

Privacy Policy Changes

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time, in our sole discretion. We encourage visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to this Privacy Policy. Your continued use of the Site or the Game after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.

No Guarantees

While this Privacy Policy states standards for maintenance of data, and while efforts will be made to meet these standards, Carbon Games does not guarantee that it will comply with these standards. There may be factors beyond our control that may result in disclosure of data. Consequently, we offer no warranties or representations regarding the maintenance or non-disclosure of data.
