This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) explains how Tilting Point Media LLC (referred to as “Tilting Point”, “we”, “us”, or “our” in this Policy) collects, stores, uses, or otherwise processes the personal data of end users of our games for Apple Arcade (“Games for Apple Arcade”) (referred to as “you” or “your” in this Policy), and what rights you have if we are processing your personal data. 

We use the term “your data” or “personal data” to refer to data that relates to you as an identified or identifiable individual (such as your name or email address), including non-personal data that can be combined with other data to potentially identify you. You must read and accept this Policy before accessing or using our Games for Apple Arcade so that you are aware of how and why we may use data relating to you.

While operating the Games for Apple Arcade, we may share your data with partners we work with.

Based on our legitimate interest to constantly improve and promote our Games for Apple Arcade, we may process your data to:

  • operate and maintain our Games for Apple Arcade (for example, by making sure our Games for Apple Arcade are secure and function as intended).

Based on our legitimate interest to make sure our Games for Apple Arcade are a fair and safe environment for all users and for our business, we may process your data to:

We may share your data with third parties to achieve the purposes described in this Policy. This may include sharing data with the following types of recipients:

  • persons or companies outside of the Tilting Point group that provide services to us and process data on our behalf when providing those services (for example, providers of hosting services, customer support software providers, services that add functionality to the Games for Apple Arcade, or other services that help us develop and operate our Games for Apple Arcade);

This typically applies to, for example, your public profile information in our Games for Apple Arcade (such as your in-game alias), your chat messages in our Games for Apple Arcade, and information used to provide social features such as clans or leaderboards. We encourage you to carefully consider what information you wish to share in this manner.

 

7. HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR DATA?

We will keep your data for as long as necessary to achieve the purpose(s) for which it was collected, including to provide you with the Games for Apple Arcade or to comply with any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. We may periodically delete or de-identify inactive accounts or other data in our Games for Apple Arcade. After the applicable retention period necessary for safe performance of Games for Apple Arcade, we will either delete or de-identify your data or, if neither deletion or de-identification is possible (for example, due to data being stored on a backup server), isolate your data from further processing until deletion or de-identification is possible. We may continue to use data that is not identifiable to you (for example, aggregate data).

 

8. HOW DO WE KEEP YOUR DATA SECURE?

We have adopted measures to provide your data a level of security appropriate for the degree of risk involved with the data processing activities described in this Policy. These measures are designed to protect your data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, or alteration as well as unauthorized disclosure or access. The specific measures we employ vary depending on the sensitivity of the data, but typically include, for example, encryption, pseudonymization of identifying data where feasible, physical and technological controls to limit access to services or systems that contain personal data, and maintaining procedures to handle any suspected security incidents.

 

9. YOUR RIGHTS

With respect to our processing of your data, you may:

  • access, correct, or request the deletion of your data,
  • request us to restrict our processing of your data,
  • object to our use of your data for automated decision-making for direct marketing purposes,
  • be informed about which third parties have received your data,
  • request a copy in machine-readable format of the personal data we have collected from you pursuant to this Policy,
  • where technically feasible, request that your data is transmitted to another controller.

You may also withdraw your consent for processing your data at any time. Please be aware that we may continue processing your data despite your withdrawal of consent, if we also have another lawful basis for doing so. To access your data in our Games for Apple Arcade or to request its deletion, please contact us at privacy@tiltingpoint.com. In case we share any marketing communications with you, you may choose to unsubscribe from them by using the unsubscribe link provided in the messages we send. The unsubscribe link is typically found at the end of the message. 

To exercise any of your rights, you may also contact us at privacy@tiltingpoint.com. To fulfill requests submitted by email, we may need to confirm your identity to verify your right to make the request, which may involve requesting additional information from you. For example, we may ask you to provide sufficiently detailed information about the account to which the request relates to enable us to confirm that you are the account holder or acting on their behalf. 

While we will usually not do so, we reserve the right to charge you an appropriate fee for the exercise of your rights where permitted by applicable laws and regulations. If you believe that we have infringed your privacy rights, please contact us so that we can try to resolve the issue. If you are an EU resident, you have the right to lodge a complaint with your local supervisory authority, and you may also reach our EU representative (Tilting Point Media S.L.) via mail (c/ Laforja, 12, pral 1a 08006, Barcelona, Spain).

 

10. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFER

Tilting Point is a company based in the United States and, in order to provide you the Games for Apple Arcade, your data will be transferred to the US for processing and will be stored on Amazon Web Services. By using Games for Apple Arcade, you acknowledge and consent to the processing of your data in the United States.

Since the United States is considered a country that does not ensure “an adequate level of protection,” according to the art. 45 of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), Tilting Point relies on specific appropriate safeguards as well as derogations for safe transfer provided in the art. 46 and 49 of the GDPR. Namely, Tilting Point collects and transfers your data to the United States only due to the following circumstances: 1) because we entered into a contract with the Amazon Web Services, incorporating standard data protection clauses; 2) to perform a contract (providing you with the Services under our Terms of Service); 3) your consent.

 

11. NOTE FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS

If you are a California resident, please be aware that under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, as amended (“CCPA”), you are entitled to specific rights regarding your data. Besides other rights outlined in this Policy, California residents have the following rights:

– The right to opt out of the sale of your personal information. We do not sell your personal information in exchange for money. However, we may disclose a limited amount of your personal information (i) to our advertising partners to enable them to deliver an ad that is relevant to you or (ii) to our marketing partners to enable them to send you relevant offers when you have opted in to such communication. This includes the following categories of your personal information:

  • identifiers (generally including an advertising ID and your IP address for ad partners and name and email for marketing partners); and
  • internet or other electronic network activity information (including technical information required to select and deliver the appropriate ad type and format).

Because this disclosure of information could be deemed a “sale” in the meaning of the CCPA, we either ask for your explicit consent or provide a means for you to direct us to not disclose your personal information to our advertising or marketing partners for the above purposes. To exercise your right to opt-out, please contact us at privacy@tiltingpoint.com or decline to give consent to such sharing within a Game when you see a message asking for consent.

If we have actual knowledge that you are under 16 years old, we will not sell your personal information without affirmative authorization.

– Non-Discrimination. You have the right to not be discriminated against for exercising your rights under the CCPA.

 

12. AGE LIMIT

If we discover that we unintentionally hold personal data relating to a user under 13 years of age, we will promptly delete the data from our records. If you have reason to believe we hold personal data relating to a user under 13 years of age, please contact us.

 

13. CONTROLLING LANGUAGE

This Policy may be provided as a courtesy in multiple languages, however, the English language version of this Policy shall control in the event of any ambiguity between the English version and a version provided in another language.

 

14. CHANGES

We may update this Policy from time to time, for example due to changes in our operations or the legal obligations that apply to us. Updates will be made available here. We may also inform you of any changes by other means that are appropriate to the significance of the changes.
