Our Respect for Your Privacy and Protection of Personal Information
Elastic Games takes your privacy and security of Personal Information very seriously. We have provided a secure environment and this strict Policy describes the limited ways the information is used and the limited access to such information.
This Policy covers the treatment of personally-identifiable information, i.e. any information that identifies an individual, or can be used in conjunction with other information to identify an individual (“Personal Information”), when you voluntarily submit this information and other information gathered by Elastic Games when you are using or accessing the Website. This Policy also covers Elastic Games’ treatment of any Personal Information that Elastic Games may share with its business partners or other third parties under very limited circumstances.
This Policy does not apply to the general practices and treatment of information (whether personal or not) by third parties that Elastic Games does not own or control, including but not limited to any third-party websites or services that you elect to access through the Website or via a link from the Website (“Third-Party Website”), or to individuals that Elastic Games does not manage or employ. While we attempt to facilitate access or link only to those Third-Party Websites that share our respect for your privacy, we cannot take responsibility for the content or privacy policies of those Third-Party Websites. We encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of any Third-Party Website you access.
Finally, this Policy does not cover any Personal Information you send to Elastic Games via any non-secured mode of communications such as email, instant messenger, Facebook or Twitter, as communications via these methods may be subject to interception, loss, or alteration. While we welcome your comments and suggestions sent to us in this manner, and will treat any Personal Information received in this way according to this Policy, we encourage you to carefully consider what Personal Information you send to Elastic Games via these methods.
We Do Not Collect Your Personal Information Without Asking You
Elastic Games does not, as a matter of course, gather any of your Personal Information while you are visiting the Website, unless you are asked to provide such information, for example by signing up for the newsletter. Personal Information is only gathered with your informed consent. Where you have provided Personal Information, it will only be used for the stated purpose or use, as described in the next section of this Policy.
The Personal Information We Collect and What We Use It For
The following is an exhaustive list of Personal Information collected from you when you use the Website and what we use it for. You acknowledge that you are submitting this Personal Information with your informed consent.

For more information about how we treat your Newsletter Signup Information, please see the Email Communications section further in this Policy.
How We Protect Your Personal Information
Elastic Games uses only industry best practices (physical, electronic and procedural) in keeping any data collected (including Personal Information) secure. We have implemented very strict technical and organisational procedures for ensuring that, by default, only personal data which are necessary for each specific purpose are used by us. These procedures prevent your personal data from being lost; or used or accessed in any unauthorised way. In addition, Elastic Games uses third party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required to run the Website, and these third parties have been selected for their high standards of security, both electronic and physical. For example, Elastic Games uses GoDaddy, a recognized leader in secure data, for hosting of the Website. Please note that these third parties may not be located in your home jurisdiction – see the “Transfer of Personal Information Outside Your Home Jurisdiction” section further in this Policy for more information.
We Only Disclose Your Personal Information to Third Parties in Very Limited Circumstances
Except as provided in the next paragraph and the next section in this Policy on Email Communications, Elastic Games does not divulge any Personal Information gathered via the Website to third parties. Moreover, Elastic Games does not sell, rent, trade or license any Personal Information regarding its users to third parties. Only the Representatives and subcontractors of Elastic Games (or of Elastic Games’ affiliates’) are responsible for the management and development of the Website, and only these individuals have access to the information collected there. These Representatives and subcontractors all have been instructed to comply with the Policy or are under a contractual duty to do so.
