COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Personal information is information that can be used to directly or indirectly identify you. Personal information also includes anonymous information that is linked to information that can be used to directly or indirectly identify you. Personal information does not include information that has been irreversibly anonymized or aggregated so that it can no longer enable us, whether in combination with other information or otherwise, to identify you.
THIS POLICY APPLIES TO
THIS POLICY DOES NOT APPLY TO
WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Information you provide: We collect the personal information you provide such as your name, username, or email address when you use our products and services, create an account, Contact Us, participate in community discussions, apply for employment, interact with us at in-person events, or otherwise interact with us.
Information about use of our services and products: When you visit our websites, we may collect information about the type of device you use, your devices unique identifier, the IP address of your device, your operating system, the type of Internet browser that you use, usage information, diagnostic information, browsing information, session summary information, file attributes (including attributes for photos, videos, music, and documents).
Information from third parties: We may collect information from third parties, including business partners and marketing agencies. This includes your contact information from marketing partners when we engage in joint marketing or co-branding activities, your IP address or location information from service providers to offer certain products and services relevant to your location, and data from your social networks to authenticate your product use with us, or that you grant permission to our products or services to access.
Website Message Boards
Our website message boards are a place where users can go to freely share their thoughts and ideas about the BRG brand. A BRG account is required to contribute to these message boards. We prohibit message board participants from disclosing their own personally identifying information other than their own Online IDs. We ask our users to respect the privacy of others. Disclosure of phone numbers, addresses, age or other personally identifying information that may violate someone else’s privacy is prohibited. Encouraging or asking users to disclose publicly their personally identifying information is also prohibited.
BRG allows job seekers to inquire about jobs and submit personally identifying information in connection with applying for employment. If a job seeker creates a job profile, he or she will be asked to provide Personally Identifiable Information. We treat personally identifying information submitted to us for business purposes differently from information we receive in a non-business capacity. We may share resumes or potential developer contact information submitted to us, for example, with other BRG companies or third parties, depending on the nature of the inquiry.
Accuracy & Security
We take reasonable measures to protect the confidentiality, security, and integrity of the personal information collected from our website visitors. Personal information is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the public and that are only accessible to authorized employees. We also have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as perfect security. As a result, although we strive to protect personally identifying information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to us through or in connection with our websites, that we store on our systems or that is stored on our service providers’ systems.
BRG operates in North America and this site is intended for consumers in the United States. When we process personal data and information and personally identifying information in the United States, we follow United States data protection and privacy regulations, which may not offer the same level of protection as in other parts of the world, such as the European Union. If we are made aware that a consumer’s country of residence is outside the United States, that consumer will be directed to the appropriate BRG company or affiliate.
HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
Personally identifying information that we collect for a particular promotional purpose through one of our websites or to make purchases is saved and used only for that purpose, unless the participant chooses to opt-in to one of our marketing programs. Visitors to our websites may be given the opportunity to “opt-in” to two different programs. The first option is to receive marketing content from BRG. The second is to have personal information shared with BRG’s third party partners so that they may send you marketing materials.
By logging in as an account holder on our websites, consumers consent to having information regarding their activities added to their customer profile, whether information regarding those activities comes from BRG internal sources, BRG-related entities or affiliated sources. We may give account holders the opportunity to provide information about themselves and will from time to time conduct surveys or questionnaires for members to provide feedback and additional information. This information allows us to provide those account holders with information about our products that best suits their interests and to customize their experience.
BRG’s services department maintains information obtained from consumers who contact or submit an online complaint so that we may assist these customers with current or future service issues. Consumer Services uses this information only for payment and payment verification purposes. BRG’s consumer services department may direct consumers to the consumer services departments of other companies with whom BRG has arranged to provide consumer service, so that the consumer receives appropriate assistance.
We may use personally identifying information and records for defense of a lawsuit, investigation or other action if such personally identifying information, records or profiles are relevant to the lawsuit, investigation or action.
WHO WE SHARE WITH
We may share the personally identifying information of our website users with our affiliates and other third parties who assist us with fulfilling your requests, clear and verify transactions, deliver and administer products, content or services, manage and enhance customer data, store and maintain our database records, provide customer service, detect fraud or illegal activities, conduct customer research and surveys, develop new products and services and sell products and services to you.
BRG may also share personally identifying information with law enforcement or similar organizations, in connection with a criminal investigation, investigation or prevention of fraud or criminal activities, infringement of intellectual property rights or other activity that is suspected to be illegal or may expose our users or BRG to legal liability.
We may share non-personally identifying information and behavioral data from our studies with our affiliates and other third parties.
Data logged via dynamic in-game advertising or some portion of it will be shared with third party companies that operate the advertisement serving technology, and these companies may share aggregated data (meaning data that includes data about a account holder’s gaming session but is not specific to him or her) with advertisers and game publishers.
We do not control our affiliates’ or third parties’ use of your information after we share it, but we use reasonable efforts to obtain our affiliates’ and third parties’ agreement to protect the confidentiality, security, and integrity of any personal information we share with them or that we permit them to collect directly. If consumers do not want their personal information made available to others in these ways, they should not provide their personal information to us.
We take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is accurate, complete, and up-to-date. Depending on where you live, you may have the rights described below.
You have the right to access, correct, or delete the personal information that we collect. You are also entitled to object to or restrict, at any time, the further processing of your personal information. You have the right to receive your personal information in a structured and standard format. You may lodge a complaint with the competent data protection authority regarding the processing of your personal information.
To protect the privacy and the security of your personal information, we may request information from you to enable us to confirm your identity and right to access such information, as well as to search for and provide you with the personal information we maintain. There are instances where applicable laws or regulatory requirements allow or require us to refuse to provide or delete some or all of the personal information that we maintain.
You may Contact Us to exercise your rights. We will respond to your request in a reasonable time frame, and in any event in less than 30 days.
POLICIES FOR CHILDREN
We do not knowingly collect, use, or disclose information from children under 16. If we learn that we have collected the personal information of a child under 16 or the equivalent minimum age depending on the jurisdiction, such as 13 in the United States we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible. Please immediately Contact Us (email@example.com) if you become aware that a child under 16 has provided us with personal information.
If you are a California resident under the age of 18, and you are a registered user of our products or services, California law permits you to request and obtain removal of content or information you have publicly posted. To make such a request, please Contact Us with specific information about where the content or information is posted and attesting that you posted it. We will then make reasonable, good faith efforts to remove the post from prospective public view, or anonymize it so you cannot be individually identified, to the extent required by applicable law. Please be aware that such a request does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of the content or information you have posted and that there may be circumstances in which the law does not require or allow removal even if requested.
We will retain personally identifying information about you for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this policy unless a longer retention period is required by law or regulations.
