To do this, we need information about you. Protecting your privacy is very important to us. We use your data only when we have a legitimate reason to do it. This Privacy Policy will help you understand what information we collect, how we use it and what choices you have when you use any of our projects, visit our websites, interact with mobile applications, purchase promotional products from us or take part in face-to-face events and promotions (hereinafter referred to collectively as โ€” "Services'').

Our Privacy Policy is designed to give you a complete understanding of the measures we take to protect the personal data you share with us, and we always recommend you to entirely read it. There is also a short version of the Privacy for Kids (8th point) to familiarize themselves with the main provisions of this policy.

Please note that, in addition to the general information below, at the end of this Privacy Policy there is information about how your data is used by our individual Services (section "Disclosure of information for specific projects").

You should also read the user agreement of the Terms of Service between you and METATRACE LTD.

1. Who decides how to use your data

The data operator responsible for making decisions about the use of your personal data is METATRACE LTD.

If you have any questions or comments about this policy, you can contact us by email [email protected]

2. What information do we collect about you and how do we use it

This Privacy Policy defines how we use any information that may or could be used to identify you ("Personal Data"). It does not apply to information that cannot be used to identify you ("Depersonalized Data").

We need to collect and use certain Personal Data in order to provide you with Services and fulfill our promises given by us in the user agreement of the Terms of Service:

  • When you subscribe to our Services, you provide us with your Personal Data voluntarily, informing us, for example, when creating an account. We collect and use such data to enable your authentication when logging into your account and using the Services, in order to verify your eligibility and ability to access the Services and to ensure that you receive the correct version of the Services. Such information includes your age, the user name used in the game that you choose to use on our Services, as well as the internal identifiers of your account assigned by us.

  • In order to use our Services, you need to have an account on a third-party service supported by us that provides the possibility of single sign-in. In this regard, the composition of the Personal Data we collect will also depend on which third-party accounts you decide to use, on the privacy policy of the relevant services and on what your privacy settings on these services allow us to see when you use the services of these services to access our Services (we will receive your email address). Depending on which particular Service you subscribe to, we may support other third-party single sign-in services and receive additional Personal Data from them. Some third-party providers may notify you that they provide us with additional information, such as your public profile data, when you use the login service through such services. We do not collect such information from them.

  • We collect and use information about the location of your device when you use our Services (and also if you decide to enable background location tracking by our Services when you do not interact directly with the Services), including information about your movements and events occurring in the Service. Our Services include location-based mechanics, whose main function is to provide virtual reality tied to your location in the real world, so we need to know where you are in order to set up such mechanics for you and plan the location of the placement of virtual objects. We determine your location using various technologies, including GPS, WiFi access points that you connect to when using the Services, as well as the location of mobile/cellular repeater towers.

  • We also collect and use data about your actions and achievements in our Services, as well as certain information about your mobile device (including device identifiers, device operating system (โ€œOSโ€), its model, configuration and settings, as well as programs installed on it), which allows us to adjust the operation of the Services to your requirements and personalize your gameplay and user interface.

  • In addition, we use the above information to provide you with technical and customer support.

  • You also provide us with Personal Data when you make in-app purchases, subscribe to our news, register to participate in face-to-face events, participate in competitions, promotions, lotteries or surveys, or communicate with us.

For more information about AR functionality and data protection, please contact our support team in Discord server.

  • To offer new or additional features of our Services.

Unless otherwise specified for a particular Service, kids are not allowed to use the Services, and we do not collect their Personal Data. We define the concept of "kids" as follows:

  • EEA residents: persons under the age of 16 or the age from which a person can provide consent to the processing of personal data in the relevant country;

  • residents of the Republic of Korea: persons under the age of 14;

  • residents of other regions: persons under the age of 13 or the age from which a person can provide consent to the processing of personal data in the relevant country.

The METATRACE LTD website contains more detailed information about age restrictions.

In order for a Kid to gain access to Services that allow kids to participate, the verified consent of the Kid's parents or official guardians ("Parents") must be provided. Parents can provide and verify their consent via [email protected] or other third-party authorized provider, which can be accessed through the Service. In cases where parental consent is required, METATRACE LTD recommends that Parents monitor the Kid's online activity and use of the Service.

The verifiable consent of the Parent is required for the collection, use or disclosure of Personal Data about the kid. METATRACE LTD will not collect, use or disclose any Personal Data about a kid without obtaining such consent from his parent or guardian. We may ask the kid to provide the Parent's email address to request such consent; however, the Parent's email address will be deleted if the consent is not received by us within a reasonable time.

Upon completion of verification, the Parent can provide their consent for their kid's access to the Service. When creating a user account, METATRACE LTD will collect data such as the in-game username that the kid chooses to use on our Services, internal account identifiers that we assign to the kid's account, and, with the permission of the Parent, the kid's personal email address. This information is necessary for us to authenticate the kid's account, in order to verify his/her eligibility and ability to access the Services and to ensure that he/she receives the correct version of the Services. As the Kid accesses the Service and uses the Service, METATRACE LTD will also collect and use information about the location of the Kid's device and other Personal Data listed in this Privacy Policy in order to ensure the operation of the Services for the Kid, as described in this Privacy Policy. If we need additional information for any other purposes, we will first contact you for permission to obtain it.

Parents have the right to verify their kid's Personal Data, request the deletion of their kid's Personal Data, as well as revoke their consent to the collection, use and (or) disclosure of their kid's Personal Data by sending us an appropriate notification. As a Parent, you understand that METATRACE LTD has a legitimate interest in disclosing your kid's Personal Data collected through the Services to third-party providers for the sole purpose of administering or providing the Services, as described in section 3 of this Privacy Policy. For more information, go to our support website at this link. For more information about authorized third-party providers, visit their websites.

If we find out that we have received a kid's Personal Data without parental consent, we will take steps to delete such information from our files as soon as possible.

If you have any questions about how we handle Kid's personal data, please contact us by email at [email protected].
