Welcome to Section. Your privacy is important to us.


Section Studios, Inc. ("Section", "us", "our" or "we") is dedicated to protecting the privacy rights of our users ("users" or "you"). This Privacy Policy (this "Policy") describes the ways we collect, store, use, and manage the information that you provide or we collect in connection with our websites (the "Sites") or any Section game provided on a mobile platform (for example, iOS and Android) (collectively, the "Service(s)"). Please note that the scope of this Policy is limited to information and data collected or received by Section through your use of the Service.  Section is not responsible for the actions of third party people or companies, the content of their sites, the use of information or data you provide to them, or any products or services they may offer.  Any link to those sites does not constitute our sponsorship of, or affiliation with, those people or companies.


By using the Service, you are agreeing to this Policy (and the Terms of Service and any other applicable policies) and the collection and use of your information and data, in the manner provided in this Policy. If you do not agree to these terms, you may not use the Service.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at rivalsupport@sectionstudios.com.

These Features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our Sites, and may set a cookie to enable the Feature to function properly.  Social Media Features and Widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Sites. Your interactions with these Features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.  Section may offer you the opportunity to invite your contacts from a Social Network Service (such as your Facebook friends) so that those contacts can be located in Section games and/or you can invite them to join you in Section games. Such contact information will be used only for the purpose of sending communications to the addressee. You or the third party may contact us to request the removal of this information from our database to the extent Section stores any of this information.  We may also acquire information from you through (1) your access and participation in message boards on the Service, (2) your participation in surveys regarding the Service or (3) your participation in a sweepstakes or contest through the Service.  


How We Use Your Information
Section's primary goals in using information are to create your account, provide Services to you, improve our Service, contact you, conduct marketing and research and create reports for internal use. We store information on servers located in the United States via Amazon Web Services and may store information on servers and equipment in other countries.

While you are browsing the Section website, your computer's operating system, Internet Protocol (IP) address, access times, browser type and language and referring Web site addresses may be logged automatically.  We may use this information to monitor, develop and analyze your use of the Service.
We may ask you to submit and we may process data that is personal to you, including but not limited to your name, gender, age or birthday, links to your profiles on social networking websites and other third party sites, user names and e-mail and mail addresses.

The Service offers publicly accessible Internet communications tools and methods such as forums, and in-game communications (“Communication Tools”). You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them. To request removal of your personal information from these Communication Tools, please contact us. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personal information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.  If you choose to use a third party social media service to access Communication Tools, the information you provide may be tied to such social media account and if so, you will need to contact such service provider directly to request removal of the information.

Third Party Services
Our Services may contain third party tracking and data collection and analytics tools from our service providers.

This unique user ID is stored in connection with your profile information to track the Section games you are playing.  We may occasionally send you push notifications through our mobile applications to send you game updates, high scores and other service related notifications that may be of importance to you. You may at any time opt-out from receiving these types of communications by turning them off at the device level through your settings.  With only your express consent, we or our partners may collect your precise location based information (GPS) for the purpose of matching you with opponent players in your local area, to tailor content specific to your area (such as event announcements), to show your location to other players, and to match your device location to certain points of interest for purposes of advertising, as described elsewhere in this Policy. Other players in our game may then be able to see that you are available to play a game when you participate in specific areas of our games. 


Advertising
We may feature advertisements in our games and elsewhere, both ourselves and from our partners, and collect and use data and information about you and your device (including the presence of applications on the device or in use at a particular time on the device) in connection with such advertising in order to deliver, enable, target and optimize advertising and promotional information that is more relevant to you. We and our partners may also use cookies or similar tracking technologies to track the content you access or your device location for purposes of advertising. The privacy policies of our partners may include additional terms and disclosures regarding their data collection and use practices and tracking technologies, and we encourage you to check those privacy policies to learn more about their data collection and use practices, use of cookies and other similar tracking technologies.  Advertisers on mobile devices and our third party advertising and analytics partners sometimes collect and use Advertising IDs to enable and optimize advertising. Advertising IDs are non-permanent device identifiers such as the Android advertising ID and/or Apple's ID for advertising.  These advertisers and third party advertising and analytics partners may collect and use data and information about you, such as your Service session activity, viewing of and interaction with an advertisement, device identifier, MAC address, IMEI, geo-location information and IP address for the purposes of analyzing, tracking and measuring advertisement performance and to provide interest based advertising.  In addition, you may see our games advertised in other services.  After clicking on one of these advertisements and installing our game, you will become a user of our Service.  In order to verify the installs, a device identifier may be shared with the advertiser or third party advertiser or analytics partner.


How We May Disclose Your Information to Third Parties
Section may engage other companies and individuals to perform services on our behalf and disclosure your Information to them.  Examples of these services include analyzing data and providing customer support.  These agents and service providers may have access to your personal information in connection with the performance of services for Section.  We may release your information as permitted by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or when we believe that release is appropriate to comply with the law; investigate fraud, respond to a government request, enforce or apply our rights; or protect the rights, property, or safety of us, our users, or others.  In certain situations, Section may be required to disclose personal information in response to requests by law enforcement agencies.  Section may share your information in connection with any merger, sale of our assets, or a financing or acquisition of all or a portion of our business to another company. You will be notified via email and/or notice on our Sites of any change in ownership or users of your Information.  We may share aggregate or anonymous information about you with advertisers, publishers, business partners, sponsors, and other third parties.


Accessing, Correcting, and Deleting Your Information
Upon request, we will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your personal information.  If your personal information changes, or if you no longer desire our Services, you may correct, update, delete inaccuracies, or delete your personal information by making the change within your account settings or by contacting us.  In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personal information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.  We will respond to your access request within a reasonable timeframe.


Opting Out of Marketing
If you have the ability to opt out of any marketing communications from Section, you will be informed how to do so and you must contact Section in the manner specified in order to opt out of such communication.  Regardless of whether you opt out of any communications, we may still send you non-promotional emails, such as emails about your accounts or our ongoing business relationship. 


Security Safeguards
Section takes reasonable measures to protect your information from unauthorized access or against loss, misuse or alteration by third parties.  Although we make good faith efforts to store the information collected on the Service in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of that information during its transmission or its storage on our systems.  We cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party "hackers" from illegally obtaining access to this information.  We do not warrant or represent that your information will be protected against, loss, misuse, or alteration by third parties.  


Data Retention
We retain your Information for as long as your Account is active or as needed to provide you Services. We will also retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.


Our Policy Regarding Children
We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from or direct or target interest-based advertising to anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to use the Service. If you are under 13, please do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address.  In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under the age of 13, please contact us.


International Transfer
We may transfer Information that we collect about you across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world. Please note that these countries and jurisdictions may not have the same data protection laws as your own jurisdiction, but we will try and ensure that your Information is protected to the same degree as it would in the United States, subject to any limitations imposed by local law and market conditions.


Changes to This Policy
We may update this Policy to reflect changes to our practices. If we make any material changes we will notify you by email (sent to the e-mail address specified in your account) or by means of a notice on this Service prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.

OFFICIAL TOURNAMENT RULES

Please read these Official Tournament Rules (the “Official Rules”) fully and carefully before participating in any and all tournaments (individually and collectively, the “Tournament”) in connection with the “RIVAL: Crimson x Chaos” mobile game (the “App”).

The Tournament is sponsored by 3BD Holdings Inc. (“Sponsor”). The Tournament is not sponsored, endorsed, administered by, or associated with Apple Inc. or its subsidiaries or affiliates.
The Tournament is skill-based, and the best player for each Tournament will be the Winner (as defined below).
THE TOURNAMENT IS VOID WHERE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW OR WHERE BONDING, REGISTRATION, OR OTHER REQUIREMENTS WOULD BE REQUIRED BUT HAVE NOT BEEN MET, OR WHERE THE METHODS OF ENTRY SET FORTH BELOW WOULD BE DEEMED CONSIDERATION. ALL APPLICABLE FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL LAWS APPLY.
IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO DETERMINE IF THE COUNTRY, STATE, TERRITORY, OR PLACE FROM WHICH YOU ARE ACCESSING THE TOURNAMENT AUTHORIZES, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, PARTICIPATION AND/OR USE BY YOU OF THE TOURNAMENT, APP, OR ASSOCIATED SERVICES.  ANY PARTICIPATION AND/OR USE BY YOU OF THE TOURNAMENT, APP, OR ASSOCIATED SERVICES IS AT YOUR OWN RISK.  YOU AGREE NOT TO HOLD COMPANY AND/OR THE SPONSOR LIABLE IF THE APPLICABLE LEGISLATION OR REGULATIONS RESTRICT OR FORBID PARTICIPATION AND/OR USE OF THE TOURNAMENT, APP, OR ASSOCIATED SERVICES IN WHOLE OR IN PART.
IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO REVIEW THESE OFFICAL RULES AND THE TERMS CONTAINED HEREIN PERIODICALLY FOR UPDATES, MODIFICATIONS, AND CHANGES. BY ENTERING A TOURNAMENT, YOU ARE AGREEING TO DO SO.
ELIGIBILITY:
Subject to these Official Rules, the Tournament is open to individual persons who are at least thirteen (13) years old to participate in the Tournament as of the date of entry.  However, if the jurisdiction in which you reside requires a higher age of eligibility to participate in promotions similar to the Tournament, such higher age of eligibility shall apply. Individuals who have not reached the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which they reside are required to seek permission from their parent or legal guardian prior to participation in the Tournament. To be eligible to win any Prize, the Winner or such Winner’s parent or legal guardian, as applicable, must sign the tax forms, the Affidavit (as defined below), the Release (as defined below), when, and if, requested by the Sponsor. These Prize documents must be returned to the Sponsor within the applicable time periods identified below. 
In addition, to be eligible to receive a Prize (as defined below), the information associated with the entrant’s account must be true and accurate. The information associated with the entrant’s account, or information provided to Sponsor upon being notified of winning, must identify the actual entrant into the Tournament. In order to facilitate the delivery of a Prize, Sponsor may attempt to contact the Winner using the inbox feature within the App. If Sponsor cannot get in contact with the Winner, the Winner may forfeit his/her Prize, at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Any person that enters into a Tournament that he is not eligible to enter, may not win a Prize in that Tournament.
Employees, agents, and contractors (collectively, "employees") of Sponsor, Section Studios Inc., and/or Razer Inc. and their respective parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, and advertising and promotion agencies and any other entity involved in the development or administration of this Tournament, and all persons residing in the same households as employees, including but not limited to immediate family members are not eligible to win the Tournament while the employee is employed or engaged by Sponsor, Section Studios Inc., and/or Razer Inc.
Sponsor reserves the right to verify an entrant’s eligibility before, during, or after a Tournament.
Notice to all international entrants: As stated above, it is your responsibility to comply with the Tournament laws of your country/jurisdiction. You acknowledge that certain countries/jurisdictions have laws regarding the Tournament that may prevent Sponsor from awarding you a Prize. If you are a Winner and this happens to be the case with your country/jurisdiction, you acknowledge that you may not be able to receive any Prize at all from the Sponsor. By entering this Tournament, you acknowledge the risks, and understand that you may win, but not be able to receive a Prize.
ENTRY PERIOD:
Each Tournament will be announced through the App and/or social media.  You may join a Tournament only while it is live. Sponsor reserves the right to cancel a Tournament, reschedule a Tournament, postpone a Tournament, and/or modify a Tournament, all in our sole discretion, for any reason or for no reason, without any restrictions, and with or without notice.
HOW TO ENTER:
NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. Enter the Tournament by joining the Tournament in the App while it is live.
The Tournament is skill-based, and the best player(s) for each Tournament will be the winner(s), as determined by the rules and features of the App and/or Tournament (each a “Winner”, collectively the “Winners”).
By downloading the App, you agree that any information provided by you or collected by Sponsor in connection with the Tournament may be used by Sponsor in accordance with the Privacy Policy and Terms of Use located at https://www.rivalcrimsonxchaos.com/legal (collectively, the “Terms of Use”) and may be shared with Sponsor’s affiliated business entities. 
By downloading the App, you further agree that your use of App is subject to the Terms of Use.
PRIZES:
Subject to the eligibility and other terms contained herein, each Winner of the Tournament will receive a prize, as determined by Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion.  Prizes may include cash, merchandise, and Razer products, among others.  Additional prizes may be announced. 
Any entry by any user that does not comply with the Terms of Use or these Official Rules will be disqualified.  
Each prospective Winner will be required to execute an Affidavit of Eligibility (the “Affidavit”) and Liability and Publicity Release (the “Release”).  The Affidavit will confirm that such prospective Winner meets all eligibility requirements for the Tournament and is not in violation of applicable law.  In the event such prospective Winner is not the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which he or she resides, the minor’s parent or legal guardian will be required to execute the Affidavit and Release in order for such prospective Winner to claim the applicable Prize. If the prospective Winner or the parent or legal guardian of such prospective Winner, in the event the prospective Winner is not the age of majority, refuses to sign the Affidavit or Release within five (5) business days of being requested to do so by the Sponsor, such prospective Winner may be disqualified. In the event of disqualification, the next highest ranked person participating in the applicable Tournament, to be verified by the Sponsor, will be declared the Winner of such Prize. 
Each App user may establish, maintain, use and control only one account. Each account may only be owned, maintained, used and controlled by one individual. For avoidance of doubt, users may not "co-own" accounts. In the event Sponsor determines that you have opened, maintained, used or controlled more than one account, in addition to any other rights that Sponsor may have, Sponsor reserves the right to suspend or terminate any or all of your accounts and terminate, withhold or revoke the awarding of any Prizes.
Sponsor will only issue a Prize and any accompanying tax forms, if applicable, to the individual identified in the account information for the winning account. Sponsor uses your account information to contact and verify Winners. Out of date or incorrect account information at the time you enter a Tournament may disqualify you from receiving a Prize. Failure to provide valid, working contact information in connection with your account may result in termination of that App account and forfeiture of any Prize awarded.
Sponsor expressly reserves the right to disqualify any entries that it believes in good faith are generated by an automated means or scripts or that violate any of these Official Rules or the Terms of Use. Entries generated by script, macro or other automated means are void.
Decisions of the Sponsor are final and binding with respect to all matters related to the Tournament. In no event shall the Sponsor be obligated to award any Prize other than the Prize specified in these Official Rules. The Sponsor does not guarantee that the Prize can be made available to the Winner. The Prize is not assignable and not transferable and no substitutions are permitted. In addition, if the Prize is unable to be fulfilled to the Winner due to any applicable law, rule or regulation, or if the Winner cannot claim the Prize for any reason, then Sponsor reserves the right to not award the Prize at all. The Winner shall be responsible and liable for all federal, state and local taxes on the value of the Prize. Winners shall provide Sponsor with accurate information regarding their identity and country of residence. 
PRIZE SELECTION:
There will be one (1) Winner for each Tournament.  Sponsor will award the Prize to Winners by notifying them as set forth herein.  Additional ways of winning prizes may be announced, as determined by Sponsor in its sole and absolute discretion.  
Each Tournament will be conducted under the supervision of the Sponsor. The decisions of the Sponsor are final and binding in all matters relating to each Tournament. The Winner will be notified in the App or by email; provided, however, that Sponsor reserves the right to determine an alternate method of notification. The Winner must accept the Prize within seventy-two (72) hours after the date of notification of such Prize. A Tournament Winner's failure to accept the Prize within the specified seventy-two (72) hours will be considered such Tournament Winner's forfeiture of the Prize and Sponsor may, at its option and sole discretion, choose not to award the Prize at all. If an entrant is found to be ineligible, Sponsor may, at its option and sole discretion, choose not to award the Prize at all.
