Sabotage Studio

This Privacy Policy applies to our websites located at sabotagestudio.com, seaofstarsgame.co and themessengergame.com (“Sites”), our homemade Discord bots, our Kickstarter campaign for Sea of Stars (“Campaign”) and our two games: The Messenger and Sea of Stars (“Games”). If you have any questions regarding this Privacy Policy, please feel free to contact us at info@sabotagestudio.com. We may modify this Privacy Policy from time to time without prior notice. Individuals under the age of 18 should consult their parents or legal guardians before providing us with any personal information.

TL;DR: Our approach to information gathering is a very minimalistic one: only what is essential to properly deliver on our promises is collected. Our business is selling offline games; personal information has no monetary value for us.


WE COLLECT VERY LITTLE PERSONAL INFORMATION

We only collect personal information from you when you enter your email address on our websites to join our mailing list, when you submit your preferences regarding your campaign perks’ options on The Crypt web app, sand when you pick options for roles via the Headmaster Moraine Discord bot. 

We do not use cookies or other technologies to remember personal information when you use our sites.


WE ALSO COLLECT VERY LITTLE NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION

We collect crash information of our games on PC to help us improve the experience on a wide range of hardware. Traffic data on our websites is collected by Google Analytics to help us understand how to better communicate about our games and studio.
None of this information is associated with any specific player or visitor. 


WE DO NOT DISCLOSE ANY INFORMATION TO OUTSIDE PARTIES

Your personal information will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or given to any outside party for any reason, without your consent. 

This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our websites, games and Discord bots, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. When you purchase items via third parties sites, you consent to our third party vendors having access to contact, age and credit card information you have entered. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property or safety.


THIRD PARTY SITES HAVE THEIR OWN RULES

We may include links to or widgets from other third party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities resulting from use of any linked sites, and we encourage you to read the privacy policies on any such third party sites, and proceed only if you are comfortable with such terms.


OUR SECURITY IS STRONG BUT NOT FAILSAFE

The security of your personal information is important to us; however, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure so we cannot guarantee absolute security of your personal information.


WE’RE EXTRA CAUTIOUS WHEN IT COMES TO CHILDREN

We will not collect any personally identifiable information from children thirteen (13) years of age or younger without prior verifiable parental consent. When verifiable parental consent is not obtained, we may only use the online contact information (such as email) to: (i) respond directly to the child’s request on a one-time basis and not use that information to recontact the child for other purposes. Once we have responded to such request, we will delete the information provided immediately; (ii) request the name or online contact information of a parent for the purpose of obtaining verifiable parental consent or providing parental notification; and (iii) respond more than once directly to a specific request from a child and not used to recontact the child for other purposes. We will use our best efforts to provide parental notification, which will include the nature and intended use as well as an opportunity for the parent to prevent the use of the information and participation in the activity. We will never condition a child’s use of our sites on the child disclosing more personal information than is reasonably necessary to use our websites.


SEND US A MESSAGE IF YOU WANT YOUR DATA DELETED

We will retain your information as needed to provide you services. If you wish to request that we no longer use your information to provide you services contact us at the email address provided above. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.


WE HAVE DATA REDUNDANCY IN MULTIPLE COUNTRIES

Your personal information may be transferred to, stored or processed in the United States or another host country, and the level of protection provided in the United States or such other host country may not be as stringent as that under your country’s standards. 


THIS PRIVACY POLICY COULD CHANGE

If we make any changes to our Privacy Policy, all such changes will be posted on this page.


AGREEMENT

By using our websites, games or Discord bots, you agree we may use your personal information in connection with the purposes stated in this policy.
