We will collect, use, transfer and disclose Personal Information in accordance with our Privacy Policy. You may also be asked explicitly to provide Personal Information anytime that you are in contact with Rhino Games.

If you “register” with us via Facebook Connect or other Social Network Service, we will store such information as necessary to connect your SNS account.

We may also offer you the ability to import your address book contacts or manually enter e-mail addresses so that you can (i) locate your contacts on our Services; and (ii) invite those contacts to join you in our games. Any such information you elect to give us, we may store for the purpose of helping you and your contacts make connections on our site.

We also collect non-personal information, which is data in a form that does not permit direct association with you or any specific individual ("Non-Identifying Information"). Such information is aggregated and used to help improve our Services. We may collect, use, transfer and disclose this information for any purpose. Details provided in this Privacy Policy about what Non-Identifying Information we collect currently, and how we use, transfer and disclose such information concern only how this information is collected and used today.

Over the course of playing the game, we will accumulate and store persistent game world data linked to your account, such as, but not limited to, avatar, character name, experience, level, and in game items (“Character Information”).

All of Personal Information, Non-Identifying Information, and Character Information, collectively “User Information”, may be used alone or in the aggregate with information collected from other Rhino Games Users. Our primary objective in collecting this information is to provide you with a superior user experience.

Related to this information collection, our Services may serve ads that contain links to other Third-Party Mobile and Web Applications, and we may utilize your Device ID to track clicks or other ad fulfillment metrics.

Additional Collection of Information:

If you choose to participate in a promotion or sweepstakes, we may request that you provide us with additional Personal Information such as your mailing address in order to administer your participation in the promotion.

Unless you specifically opt in to share your Personal Information, the information that we share with these third parties will only be used in the form of Non-Identifying Information to support user trend analyses and demographic profiling. Some Third Party Publishers and Advertising Entities also act as Service Providers (defined below) to us, so in those cases we will share your information as described below.

With Preferred Partners

We may share your username, email address and Device ID (collectively, "Specific Shared Data") with certain of our Third Party Publishers and other business partners ("Preferred Partners") for those parties to assist us with providing you with the aspect of the Services for which you provided such Specific Shared Data to us, and to use such Specific Shared Data to provide you with information and marketing materials about Third Party Mobile Applications and other products and services in order, for example, to further enhance your use of our Services and to augment your gaming experience generally. In addition, in the event of a user inquiry concerning Third Party Publishers or Third Party Applications, we may send Specific Shared Data as well as the inquiry to the Third Party Publisher to address the inquiry.

We only share such information with Preferred Partners pursuant to an agreement by which the Preferred Partner is under obligations not to disclose or use it for any other purpose. You may contact us by any of the means provided in the "Contacting Us" section below to request not to have such information provided to Preferred Partners, understanding, however, that if such information is not shared with Preferred Partners it may affect your ability to use or access portions of the Services.

Some Preferred Partners also act as Service Providers (defined below) to us, and in those cases we may also share Personal Information and Non-Identifying Information as described below.

With our Service Providers

Disclosure of your User Information may also occur where we engage or employ service providers, vendors or other third party entities to facilitate provision of our Services (each a "Service Provider") (e.g., without limitation, improvement of our Services’ features, user account authentication, promotion and marketing, administration, analytics, virtual currency transactions, crowd-sourcing, cloud storage and other related services), to provide the Services on our behalf, or to assist us in analyzing how our Services are being used.

For location-based Services, we may collect, use, and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your computer or mobile device. Unless you explicitly opt-in to permit the use and sharing of your Personal Information regarding your geographic location, your location data will only be collected and used anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you. When you opt in to Third Party Mobile Application providers’ location services, we will share your geographic location with such Third Party Mobile Application providers in connection with their location services. Please note that some location-based services may require your Personal Information for the feature to work as intended.

Where you share information with other users through the communication channels of our Services, you generally should not expect to have any ability to modify or remove such communications. Nor should you expect us to modify or delete your comments upon your request.

If you participate in a Promotion hosted by us (where you may or may not disclose the information requested), you have the option to opt out at any time from such participation and the receipt of any related communications. Please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in the relevant communication.

9. Links to other websites and services

If a Rhino Games User chooses to participate in offer-linked information requests or "clicks on" an advertisement or another third party link, such Rhino Games User may be directed to that third party’s website or service and/or be prompted to provide Personal Information in connection with such activity. The fact that we link to a third party website or service is not an endorsement or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of such third party’s privacy or information security policies or practices or their compliance with laws. We do not exercise control over third party websites or services. These other websites or services may place their own cookies or other files on your computer or mobile devices; collect data; or solicit personal information from you.
