Please use caution and common sense when sharing or posting User Content.
You may request that we remove User Content you have previously posted from publicly viewable areas of the Service by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We may use visitors' IP addresses for various purposes, including to display customized content and analyze and report upon the usage of the Service and content, features and services made available through the Service; to diagnose and prevent service or technology problems affecting the Service; and to monitor and prevent fraud and abuse. If you access the Service on a mobile device, we may also collect your device identification number and request access to settings and location information for similar purposes and to personalize your experience with the Service.

We may also use your location information in an aggregate way, as described below in the "Aggregated Personal Data" section. The collection and tracking of your location information may occur even when the Service, including any mobile application, is not actively open and running.
You may change the privacy settings of your mobile device to turn off the functionality to share location information with the Service. Please note that turning off location sharing may affect certain features of the Service.

Non-Identifiable Data: When you interact with Brackify through the Service, we and third parties that may provide certain functionality on the Service, such as advertising networks, use various technologies to passively collect information that cannot by itself be used to specifically identify you ("non-identifiable data"). Brackify may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by Brackify affiliates, agents or service providers. We may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to the Service, the number of visitors to each page of the Service, the number of visitors and in-game activity per level of gameplay for our games, the domain names of our visitors' Internet service providers, and the devices, operating systems and browsers used by our visitors. It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in this process.
Response to "Do Not Track" Signals: At present, we do not respond to "do not track" signals sent from web browsers. If we do so in the future, we will provide all relevant information in this policy.
Aggregated Personal Data: In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Service, Brackify often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and Brackify may share this aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners or otherwise use it for any lawful purpose. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. Brackify may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe the Service to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
Our Use of Your Personal Data and Other Information:
Brackify and its affiliates and Partners may use your Personal Data and other information to communicate with you about content, features, promotions and services we believe will be of interest to you, such as upcoming Brackify or Partner games.

We cannot control how an acquiring or surviving entity may use or disclose such information.
Agents, Consultants, Vendors and Service Providers: Brackify, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and performing customer service. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide such company with the information needed to perform its specific function. Brackify will take measures to ensure that such companies do not use your information for any other purposes.
