This privacy notice describes how PlayaNext LLC (“PlayaNext” or “we”) collects, uses, shares, and otherwise processes the personal information received via our website at www.playanext.com (“Site”) and through other means. As used in this privacy notice, “personal information” refers to information about an identified or identifiable individual, such as their name or email address. It also describes the information we may receive in connection with delivering our software distribution services to our business partners.
To the extent that we are subject to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and similar laws (“Data Protection Laws”), in most cases PlayaNext would be considered a “data controller” of the personal information that we handle under this privacy notice, although we may also handle certain personal information as a “processor” for our business partners.
What We Collect
Personal Information Collected Through the Site
We collect information that you voluntarily provide to us, such as your name, email address, and other information, when you fill out a contact form or contact us in other ways. We use this information to respond to your requests, decide whether to enter into a business relationship with you, provide you with services and for our own networking, marketing, recruiting, and other business purposes.
As part of those uses, we may supplement the information you send us with information from other sources, such as other business partners and referral sources, as well as publicly available sources such as social networking sites. In addition, we may collect IP address, the state or country from which you access the Site, browser types and language, operating system, software and hardware attributes, referring and exit pages and URLs, Internet service provider, the data and time error logs, and other similar information.
Other Information in Connection with Our Software Distribution Services
When we provide software distribution services through our business partners, we may collect IP address from which we derive country level information (after which we do not store IP address); the state or country from which you access our distribution partners’ software; session ID (which is a time stamp regarding when our distribution partners’ software is installed); browser types, language and version; operating system and version; information about the offered products; software and hardware attributes, whether a product offer is accepted, installed, and launched; and error logs and other similar information (of which any file system path data would not be stored). This information is not personal information and is not used to identify you or your device. We use this information to determine which products to offer and to analyze the product offers made and accepted. We may share this information, when aggregated, with our partners. Examples of such aggregate statistical information include the number of users that accepted product offers and/or downloaded a specific offered product in a particular country.
We do not sell personal information and we will not share personal information with third parties other than:
With your consent;
To protect our rights or the rights or safety of third parties;
In connection with our provision of services;
With our service providers who help us provide our services, operate our business, transmit our communications, and maintain our Site;
As part of a sale, merger or acquisition, or other transfer of all or part of our assets, including in a bankruptcy proceeding; and
As otherwise required or permitted by law.
We store personal information in the United States and in other countries that may not have data protection laws as protective as those in your location.
We may share information that has been de-identified or aggregated without restriction.
Our Legal Bases
Some jurisdictions require companies to tell you about the legal grounds they rely on to use or disclose your personal information. To the extent those requirements apply, our legal grounds are:
Legitimate interests: in most cases, we handle personal information on the ground that it furthers our legitimate interests in commercial activities and is not overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the affected individuals. For example, we use personal information to:
Respond to your communications with us;
Process job applications;
Analyze and improve our business;
Address legal and ethical issues;
Provide our services pursuant to our contract with our client;
Market our services; and
Protect our clients, personnel, and property.
Legal compliance: we need to use and disclose personal information in certain ways to comply with our legal obligations.
To honor our contractual commitments: some of our processing of personal information is to meet our contractual obligations in connection with the individual to whom the personal information pertains.
Consent: where required by law, and in some other situations, we handle personal information on the basis of implied or express consent.
Where we act as a processor of personal information on behalf of a business partner, we process the personal information pursuant to our contract with the business partner and our legal obligations.
We usually keep personal information for so long as it may be relevant to the purposes above, consistent with any applicable agreement(s). To dispose of personal information, we may anonymize it, delete it or take other appropriate steps. Information may persist for additional time in copies made for backup and business continuity purposes.
We maintain administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect information that you send us. However, no system is completely secure or error-free and we cannot guarantee the complete security of your information.
To the extent required by Data Protection Laws, when we hold your personal information as a controller, you may request that we:
Update personal information that is out of date or incorrect;
Restrict the way that we process and disclose certain information;
Delete certain personal information;
Provide access to and/or a copy of some personal information;
Prevent the processing of your personal information for direct-marketing purposes;
Object to our processing of personal information;
Transfer your personal information to a third party; or
Honor a revocation of your consent for the processing of your personal information (without retroactive effect).
We will consider all requests and provide our response within the time period stated by applicable law. Certain information may be exempt from such requests in some circumstances, which may include if we need to keep processing your information for our legitimate interests or to comply with a legal obligation. We may ask you to provide us with additional information to confirm your identity before responding to your request. You have the right to lodge a complaint with the authorities applicable to your situation, though we invite you to contact us with any concern, as we would be happy to try to resolve it directly.
The Site and our services are intended for users over age 18. If we become aware that a child under 13 (or a higher age threshold where applicable) has provided us with personal information, we will take steps to comply with any applicable legal requirement to remove such information.
If our practices change, we will post the changes on this page. We encourage you to visit this page periodically to learn of any updates.
