3.3. Sharing Information

We do not share any kind of information about you, including but not limited to name, email address, password, payment details, messages sent to us or others using our services, and all other data you share with us or that we automatically collect.

Chilltime may disclose information about you to our partners in order to provide the Service, resolve service problems and correct errors in the Service, to communicate with you about the Service, to provide you with advertising and promotional information in connection with the Service, and to enhance your experience on the Service. However, we do not give our partners an independent right to share this information.

Due to our contractual obligations with these third parties and the need to share information to deliver and support the Service, we cannot provide you with the opportunity to opt-out of sharing information (whether Personally Identifiable Information or other information) with these third parties. Chilltime, certain of its partners, and each of their contractors and employees may view the Content that you transmit to the service to provide the Service and otherwise perform the tasks set forth in this Privacy Policy.

3.4. Transfers of Information

By using the Chilltime services and World War Online, you acknowledge and agree that your information may be processed outside your country of residence, including in other jurisdictions (namely Portugal) that may have different data protection frameworks than your region.

We’ve implemented and maintain a framework consistent with applicable law and this policy for transfers of information outside the country of collection. For example, when we transfer personal data collected in the European Union to locations outside the European Economic Area, we rely on transfer mechanisms adopted by the European Commission to help establish adequate safeguards, like Standard Contractual Clauses. We may also need to transfer your information to provide the Chilltime services to you in accordance with our existing agreements with you, such as the Terms of Service.

We also reserve the right to transfer your personal information in the event of a transfer of ownership of Chilltime or the acquisition of substantially all the assets of Chilltime related to the business which collected such information, such as acquisition by or merger with another company. In such an event, Chilltime will notify users who have provided email addresses when information about those users is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

3.5. Public Chat or Forums

We’ve empowered our users to help police compliance with our policies related to certain in-game behavior. Our product users may report each other and submit descriptions of their in-game activity and actions to help us determine if the reported behavior constituted a violation of rules and procedures that apply to user conduct, as well as any potential repercussions (such as temporary or permanent account suspensions or chat restrictions).

We also record and store, and reserve the right (but have no obligation) to monitor chat and similar details about in-game interactions for a period we determine in our sole discretion is appropriate to help us, among other things, detect and prevent toxicity, enforce our rules and policies, and foster a more positive gaming community for our users. We use both manual (like many user Support tickets) and automated (such as machine learning) tools and techniques to support these efforts.

Please be kind to other users, observe our policies related to user behavior (including our Game Rules and Terms of Use), and always be careful with what you share!

If you choose to use means outside of World War Online to communicate with us, such as social media platforms, we recommend you check their respective Privacy Policies. Some examples:
