7. Third-Party Networks/Platforms

. You may allow our Services to interact with a third-party social network or platform, which will provide information about you to us. These applications or websites are created and maintained by a third party that is not a part of, or controlled by Canasta Junction. You should ensure that you read their terms of service and privacy policies to understand how they treat your data and what data they might share with us.

You understand that when you allow our Services to interact with any third-party social network or platform, we may share data about you with your contacts (and vice versa) in order that you may enjoy playing socially or in tournaments (the Social Data). This Social Data includes your name, your social media profile picture and your scores and/or progress in our games.

You can make changes to what data a third-party social network or platform shares with us, or stop our Services interacting with that social network or platform by adjusting your settings with that third-party provider, however, you may find you are not able to enjoy all of the same features of our Services.

Users of our Services may be automatically assigned a profile that is visible to other users of our Services. Your profile may include the Social Data described above, game achievements or other game play information and details of which other Canasta Junction account holders have viewed your profile. Your profile will be visible to other users of our services. If you choose to view another individual’s profile, that individual and other users of our Services may know that you have visited them because some of your Social Data and a link to your profile may be displayed on that individual’s profile. They will also be able to visit your profile.

10. Protection of Personal Information. The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We strive to maintain appropriate technical and physical safeguards to protect your Personal Information against accidental or unlawful destruction or loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, use and all other unlawful forms of processing of the data in our possession. We use the same level of skill in protecting your Personal Information as other similar game developers. However, since the internet is not a completely secure environment we cannot guarantee that the information you transmit via our Games will not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of any of our safeguards. You understand that we are a game developer and game service provider, not a bank, hospital or military, and thus do not expect to be a desirable hacker target, nor to develop or implement industrial-grade security protocols. But we invite you to make suggestions in the interest of privacy and enjoyable services.

You understand that when you click on these links any data which you provide thereafter is subject to such third party’s privacy policy and not to ours.
