Overview

Our website address is: https://developershub.org

Developers Hub and its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively “Developers Hub”) offer a variety of products, services, and websites for game Developers and game players that will be referred to in this policy as the “Service” or “Services.” Because we would like to avoid excessive formality and make this information easy to understand, the policy refers to Developers Hub as “we” or “us” and to the reader as “you.” When we say “device,” we mean any device, including desktop, laptop, PC or Mac computers, smartphones, tablets, or any other device that is used to access or interact with the Service. When we say “Developer, Publisher” we mean a third party that develops and/or distributes a game or other app made with any software and/or a game using any service. By using the Service, you agree to this Privacy Policy and understand that we may transfer your data outside of the European Economic Area (EEA).

It is important that you read this Privacy Policy together with any other privacy notice or fair processing notice we may provide on specific occasions when we are collecting or processing personal data about you, so that you are fully aware of how and why we are using your data. This Privacy Policy supplements the other notices and is not intended to override them. 

This Privacy Policy governs our information practices for the Service, which includes any websites, where a link to this policy is provided. It describes how we collect, use, share, and protect information from developers, players, ad recipients, publishers, or people browsing or using our sites (collectively “Users”) when Users access or interact with or use our Service. This Privacy Policy also applies to the personal data we collect offline, such as when you call us or interact with Developers Hub in person, such as at an industry event or at a place of business.

Who we share your data with

  • With certain Asset Store sellers, we provide customer information, such as an email address, when you purchase or license certain products to the sellers of those products in our Asset Store. We provide this information to assist the provider with fulfilling your purchase(s) and, in the case of our Asset Store partners, to allow them to contact you about new products and Services.
  • Safety, security, and legal compliance: We may share your information:
    • When we have a good faith belief that we are required to disclose the information in response to legal process (e.g., if we receive a court order, search warrant, subpoena, or similar legal process);
    • To satisfy any applicable laws or regulations;
    • If we believe that the Service is being used in the commission of a crime, including to report such criminal activity or to exchange information with other companies and organizations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction;
    • When we have a good faith belief that there is a meaningful risk that poses a threat to the safety of you, another person or the public generally;
    • In order to protect the rights or property of Developers Hub, including to enforce the terms and licenses that govern the use of the Services.
  • Sale or merger: In the event that Developers Hub explores or undergoes a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, transfer of control, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, we may share or transfer all of your information, including personal information. We will inform you of the identity and contact information of the receiving party and require the receiving party to continue to be bound by the rules herein in relation to your information including personal information. If the receiving party changes the original processing purpose and method, the receiving party shall obtain your consent.

Our policies concerning children

Our Services are intended for general audiences. Developers Hub does not knowingly collect any personal information from children. Our ads service may collect certain age range or age band information to confirm that we comply with Applicable Data Protection laws. 

  • If any party becomes aware that a child under the age of 13, or under the age of 16 for those parties in the European Economic Area, has provided us with personal information in contravention of our policies, they should contact us at [email protected].
  • Some third parties, such as platform providers like the iTunes Store or Google Play, may provide age-based ratings on some of the apps created by Developers. These ratings shall have no bearing on this limitation. Third parties may also provide content categories on some of the Services. These categories shall have no bearing on this limitation.

Accessing/Updating/Deleting Your Information

We provide Users with a variety of ways to access and update their information. You can request that your account be deleted; however, certain financial recordkeeping information may be maintained in our systems because we have a legitimate legal and financial interest in maintaining such records.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Developers Hub Services may contain links to other sites, applications, and services. Because Developers Hub does not operate those other sites, applications, and services, we cannot take responsibility for the privacy practices of the entities that operate them. We recommend that you consistently check privacy policies to understand an operator’s practices. As a reminder, this policy describes Developers Hub practices.

Changes to this privacy policy

We reserve the right to change our practices and this policy at any time. We may also send an email or provide notice within some or all of our offerings when this policy changes. We encourage you to check this page regularly so that you know what our current practices are.
