Security and Confidentiality of Your Information:  We have implemented security measures to safeguard your information, including credit card information; such safeguards will help maintain data security and prevent unauthorized access to such information.  Since, however, transmission of data over the Internet or any wireless network is never fully secure, despite such security measures and the other reasonable precautions we take to protect your information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information and do not assume any responsibility for the unauthorized use of, or access to, your information that is under our control. 

If there is a breach of security involving your personal information, including credit card information, from our Services, then we will (i) notify you of such breach in a timely manner per local regulations, and (ii) take commercially reasonable steps to rectify such breach.

If you believe that we, or any of our third-parties, are using your personal information improperly, then please notify us immediately via email at company.munky@gmail.com.

 

Children:  We consider anyone younger than 13 to be a child, unless there are more stringent regulations (e.g., lower age threshold) in effect in such child’s state of residence.  We encourage parents and guardians to teach their children about privacy and to make them aware of the fact that some people may find and misuse their personal information on the Internet or any wireless network; we believe children should never disclose their name, address, phone number, and/or any personal information without their parents’ or guardian's permission.  Parents and/or guardians must exercise their child’s privacy rights (see section 9 below).

We will allow a child to take part in testing our games (e.g., playtests), subject to his/her parents' or guardians’ authorization and/or physical presence (when a state or other location requires such physical presence during the playtest).

 

7.    Job Applicants:  If you submit an application for a job, youthen  will also have to submit some information (e.g., name, telephone number, email address, education, experience) 

8.    Your Rights:  You represent and warrant to us that all of the information you provide us is (i) true and correct, and (ii) relates to you and not to any other person.  At any time, you may ask The Munky, to grant you access to, to update, to rectify or to erase your information through email.

  • withdraw your consent for us to collect and to use your information;

If you withdraw your consent for us to collect and to use your information, or ask us to erase your information, then we will not use or process your information any longer, but we will store such information, including an anonymous version of such information, to answer regulatory and/or police requests, and to maintain the integrity of our data.

If you contact us with a certain request, and we need to validate your identity, both to protect your confidentiality to satisfy such request, then we will ask you to submit a copy of an official document to prove your identity.  Thereafter, we will (i) work to respond to your request in a timely manner (e.g., one month), and (ii) destroy the copy of the official document proving your identity soon after we satisfy your request and close the issue.

 9.    Additional Information for Californian Users:  The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) permits California residents to request from a business, with whom the California resident has an established business relationship, certain information about the types of personal information the business has collected, shared with, and/or sold to third parties for a business or commercial purpose during the immediately preceding calendar year, as well as to opt out of such business’ practice of selling of your personal information, if any.

Please note that The Munky does not sell your personal information in order to provide the game or the Services; our third-party associates, partners and providers may have access to your personal information in order to provide you with the game services within the limits and throughout the duration of our agreements with them, but, they can’t reuse your personal information for any other purposes.

If you are legally authorized to act on behalf of a user (e.g., such user’s parent or guardian) then you may exercise such user’s right to opt out, provided you and/or the user, upon request, submit documents that clearly evidences your identity, your relationship to such user and, if necessary, your authorization to act on behalf of such user.  If (i) we are not able to verify your identity or authority to act on behalf of a user, or (ii) some exception applies (e.g., when the disclosure of personal information would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of another consumer; when the personal information that we maintain about you is not subject to the CCPA’s access or deletion rights), then we may not honor your request to opt out.    

The Munky will not discriminate against you in any way if and when you exercise any of the rights above.
