TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES, ONLINE BEHAVIORAL ADVERTISING, AND DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS
“DO NOT TRACK”
When using Goathamster Studios’s online services, Goathamster Studios may collect personal information about individual users’ online activities over time and across different web sites or online services operated by Goathamster Studios. To use Goathamster Studios’s online services, individual users are connected to their specific accounts and, therefore, Goathamster Studios does not respond to Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals. Goathamster Studios shares advertising identifiers with third-party advertising partners and may allow third-party advertising partners displaying advertisements on Goathamster Studios’s websites and other online platforms to collect personal information about individual users’ online activities over time and across different web sites or online services.
Residents of the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and some other jurisdictions outside the United States have certain legal rights with respect to the personal data we hold about them. Such residents may request that we:
provide access to personal data we hold about them (including, in some cases, in portable form)
rectify such data
delete certain personal data
object to our uses or disclosures of personal data or exercise legal rights to withdraw consent
Such requests will be processed in line with local laws, including without undue delay and in accordance with any required time frames. Although Goathamster Studios makes good faith efforts to provide individuals with access to their personal information, there may be circumstances in which Goathamster Studios is unable to provide access, including, but not limited to,: where the information contains legal privilege, would compromise others’ privacy or other legitimate rights, where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the individual’s privacy in the case in question or where it is commercially proprietary. If Goathamster Studios determines that access should be restricted in any particular instance, we will endeavor to provide you with an explanation of why that determination has been made within any required time frames (approximately one month), a contact point for any further inquiries and any other legally required information. To protect your privacy, Goathamster Studios will take commercially reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access to or making any changes to your personal information.
To exercise any of the above rights (or any other rights under applicable law), please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to the rights above, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority. However, we encourage you to contact us first, and we will do our very best to resolve your concerns.
Legal Bases for Use of Your Information

on the basis of implied or express consent, such as to send you certain information, including certain marketing communications.
INTERNATIONAL TRANSFER OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
All personal information sent or collected by Goathamster Studios may be stored anywhere in the world, including but not limited to, in the United States, on the cloud, our servers, the servers of our affiliates or the servers of our service providers.

The Security of Your Information
We take reasonable administrative, physical and electronic measures to protect your personal information. Unfortunately, however, no security system can be 100% secure. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time.
