Information Collection and Use
Respawn collects personal information when you register on the Website, when you visit Website pages, and when you enter certain promotions. You are not required to submit any personal information to Respawn, and you can use many areas of our Website without submitting any personal information to us. Some areas of our Website are only accessible if you decide to give us some personal information. For example, only registered users can make full use of our forums, and to register you must submit your full name, email address, and birthdate. You may also submit additional information that may enhance your experience, including your Steam ID, Playstation Network ID, Xbox LIVE Gamertag, website URL, location, and/or a short bio. You may also choose to sign up for an email newsletter or other online services we may offer, which we may use to send you updates and other information about Respawn and our Website, Services, and Games.
In addition to the personal information we may collect, you may submit additional information by email to us. You should be aware that what we do with such information is expressly addressed and governed by our Terms of Service. We may use such information to respond to your email or for any other purpose permitted by the Terms of Service.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Respawn does not rent, sell or share personal information about you with other people or non- affiliated companies except to control access to and facilitate the operation of our Website, to provide Services and Games you have requested, when we have received your permission, or in the limited circumstances described below:
- We provide the information to trusted partners who work on behalf of or with Respawn under confidentiality agreements. These companies may use your personal information to help Respawn operate our Website, Services or Games, and/or help Respawn communicate with you about offers from Respawn and our marketing partners. However, these companies do not have any independent right to share this information.
- We respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
- We may use or transfer information about you if we believe it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our Terms of Service, or as otherwise required by law.
Protection Of Information Collected
We maintain safeguards for the purpose of ensuring the confidentiality and security of the personally identifiable information you submit to us. While we believe that these safeguards are adequate and appropriate to protect your confidential information, you should be aware that there is always a possibility of intrusion into secured computer systems, and you should take that into account in deciding whether to submit any personal information to us.
You may choose to disclose personal or other information about yourself by submitting information to be displayed as part of your public profile, by posting information to our public forums, or in the course of any public method of communication permitted by our Website, Services, or Games. Information that you disclose in any of these manners is public information, and there is no expectation of privacy or confidentiality in such information. Such information can be read, collected, or used by other users of our Website, Services, and Games, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages (and, although such messages may violate our Terms of Service, we are not liable to you as a result of them). We are not responsible for any personal information (or any images, videos, or other media) you choose to submit in these manners. Additionally, any information you submit in these manners is subject to our Terms of Service.
Updating Your Personal Information
If you wish to update or cancel your registration, or if you wish to opt out of receiving our newsletter, you may contact us at any time by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. After we process your request, we will disable your account or cease contact with you for marketing purposes, as applicable, but we may still retain your information in our files to resolve disputes, to enforce our Terms of Service, and due to technical or legal requirements or constraints.
