Collection of Information
Types of Data We Collect. We collect personal data as well as anonymous and aggregate data. Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. Personal data does not include anonymous data (data where the identity has been removed) or aggregate data that cannot reasonably be used to identify an individual. For example, if you access our Games from a shared device (such as virtual reality devices available at arcades that offer our Games to the general public) without providing your own login information, any Game Play data (see section below) collected from you is not considered personal data as such data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity.
Information You Provide to Us. We collect information you provide directly to us. For example, we may collect information you provide to us when you inquire about licensing our games for your arcade, subscribe to our mailing list, request information, fill out a form, apply for a job, request customer support, request a STEAM® key, or otherwise communicate with us. The types of information we may collect include your name and contact information (such as your email address and phone number), and other information you choose to provide.
Information We Collect Automatically When You Use the Services. When you access or use our Services, we automatically collect information about you, including:
Information We Collect From Other Sources
We may also obtain information from other sources and combine that with information we collect through our Services.
We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 (or under the age of consent established by applicable data protection law). If we learn that we are engaged in processing of personal information with such users, we will halt such processing and will take reasonable measures to promptly remove applicable information from our records. If you are a parent or guardian of a child under the age of 13 (or under the age of consent established by applicable data protection law) and believe he or she has disclosed personal information to us, please contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our website at www.beastpets.com and our storefronts on STEAM® and Viveport® are not intended for children. These sites are intended to provide information for current and future:
Our Games are distributed only through third party platforms (including STEAM®, Viveport®, and arcade management platforms directed at business users) where users must be over the age of 13 to create an account in order to access our Games. We do not collect personal information from users that access our Games without creating an account, e.g. users playing at a public virtual reality arcade.
Use of Information
How We Use Your Information
Our Legal Bases for Handling Your Personal Data
The laws in some jurisdictions require companies to tell you about the legal ground they rely on to use or disclose your personal data. To the extent those laws apply, our legal bases are as follows:
In some circumstances, we may rely on more than one legal basis for handling personal data. For example, using personal data to improve our Games allows us to both fulfill our contractual obligations and further our legitimate interests.
Sharing of Information
We may also share aggregated or de-identified information, which cannot reasonably be used to identify you.
Analytics Services Provided by Others
We will only keep your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To dispose of personal data, we may anonymize it, delete it or take other appropriate steps. Data may persist in copies made for backup and business continuity purposes for additional time.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data (see Your Data Rights and Choices below for more information).
In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
We take reasonable steps to protect the information provided via the Services from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. However, no Internet or email transmission is ever fully secure or error free. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any information via the Internet.
Transfer of Information to the U.S. and Other Countries
Beast is based in the United States and the information we collect is governed by U.S. law. By accessing or using the Services or otherwise providing information to us, you consent to the processing, transfer and storage of information in and to the U.S. and other countries, where you may not have the same rights and protections as you do under local law.
Your Data Rights
If the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies to you because you are in the European Union, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data:
If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact us directly. We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data. This is a security measure to ensure that your personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
Cookies. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies. Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of our Services.
Promotional Communications. You may opt out of receiving informational or promotional emails from Beast by following the instructions in those emails to unsubscribe or by emailing us at email@example.com with your opt out request. If you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional communications.
