This Privacy Policy is a contract between you and us, and applies to all users of this Website. In this Privacy Policy “you” or “your” means any person or entity using the Website, provided that if such person is under 18 years of age (or the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which the person resides), whichever is older, it also includes such person’s parent or legal guardian.

The Privacy Policy sets out our practices in relation to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information, which you may disclose to us through your conduct on the Website.

We may change this Privacy Policy at any time. Please check this page periodically to inform yourself of any changes. Your continued use of the Website will be deemed acceptance of the updated or amended Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the changes, you should cease using the Website.

The Privacy Policy should be read together with the User Agreement, which is also available on this Website.

We do not disclose, share, rent or trade information about the registered users of Yowie World, Yowieworld.com or any mobile application of Yowie World with any third parties.

We reserve the right to disclose your personal information (including your name, title, date of birth and contact details) in special circumstances where we have reason to believe it is necessary, including when we are required by law to make such a disclosure, when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect or enforce our rights or the rights of our related companies, if we are engaged in a dispute or a court proceeding, or where there is a court order in place which requires us to disclose such information.

We reserve the right to use personal information about you in connection with:

• monitoring and evaluating our products and services;

• assisting you with queries about your account;

• taking measures to detect and prevent fraudulent conduct;

• to monitor who is accessing the Website or using services offered on the Website;

• to send you information about the products and services offered on the Website and other products and services we offer;

• to personalise the products and services offered on the Website;

Cancelling or Deleting the Account

If you no longer wish yourself or your child to be a registered player on the Website, you will be able to delete the account by following the instructions provided in the email received by you upon registering as a user, or alternatively please email support(at)yowieworld.com with the registered player’s username and please type CANCEL in the subject line.

Confidentiality and Security

Information a user or child submits to the Website that relates to his or her account is password-protected. No employee of ours nor any automated system will contact a user or parent by email or using the mail messaging systems asking for a user or child’s login details, password or any other personal information, whether or not this is related to Yowie World or any of its related websites or applications. If you receive a request asking you for such information, please report it to us immediately by e-mail to support(at)yowieworld.com

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Further, submissions made via email are not protected by encryption and may be vulnerable to interception during transmissions. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We will not be held responsible for events arising from unauthorised access to your personal information. To the fullest extent permitted by law, we disclaim all responsibility for all negligent acts that may result in disclosure of your personal information.

If we decide to change our Privacy Policy, we will post the amended version on this Website and to the parental email address as appropriate.

Links to Other Websites

You may be able to link to third party websites from the Website. It is your responsibility to review the privacy policies and any other terms and conditions which may apply in respect of any such third party websites.

We do not accept any responsibility and shall not be held liable for any issues, including privacy issues, arising from your access to or use of any third party websites. You acknowledge that you access and use all third party websites at your own risk.

Information Collected

The information that we collects is dependent on how you use the facilities offered on the Website. If you visit an unsecure area of the Website (that is, an area where you are not required to log on) to read, browse or download information, our system will record the date and time of your visit, the pages viewed and any information downloaded. However, our systems will not record any personal information.

If you use any of the games available on the Website we generally do not capture any personal information that you may enter when playing those games. An exception to this may be when a game allows you to suspend play and return to the same point in the game at a later time. In that case the information is stored on our systems to allow you to rejoin the game at the same point.

If you decide to complete an online form, we will only collect the information that you enter into the online form if you submit the form. If at any stage you cancel the entry before submitting it, or you log out prior to submitting the form, the information you have entered up to that point will automatically be deleted.
