Aegis inc respects the privacy of its online visitors and customers of its products and services and complies with applicable laws for the protection of your privacy, including, without limitation, the European Union General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") and the Swiss and CHINA Privacy Shield Frameworks. 

1. Definitions

Wherever we talk about Personal Data below, we mean any information that can either itself identify you as an individual ("Personally Identifying Information") or that can be connected to you indirectly by linking it to Personally Identifying Information. Aegis inc also processes anonymous data, aggregated or not, to analyze and produce statistics related to the habits, usage patterns, and demographics of customers as a group or as individuals. Such anonymous data does not allow the identification of the customers to which it relates. Aegis inc may share anonymous data, aggregated or not, with third parties.

Other capitalized terms in this Privacy Policy shall have the meanings defined in the Aegis Subscriber Agreement ("ASA"). 

2. Why Aegis inc Collects and Processes Data

Aegis inc collects and processes Personal Data for the following reasons:

a) where it is necessary for the performance of our agreement with you to provide a full-featured gaming service and deliver associated Content and Services;
b) where it is necessary for compliance with legal obligations that we are subject to (e.g. our obligations to keep certain information under tax laws);
c) where it is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate and legal interests of Aegis inc or a third party (e.g. the interests of our other customers), except where such interests are overridden by your prevailing legitimate interests and rights; or
d) where you have given consent to it. 

These reasons for collecting and processing Personal Data determine and limit what Personal Data we collect and how we use it (section 3. below), how long we store it (section 4. below), who has access to it (section 5. below) and what rights and other control mechanisms are available to you as a user (section 6. below).

3. What Data We Collect and Process

3.1 Basic Account Data

When setting up an Account, Aegis inc will collect your email address and country of residence. You are also required to choose a user name and a password. The provision of this information is necessary to register a Aegis User Account. During setup of your account, the account is automatically assigned a number (the "Aegis ID") that is later used to reference your user account without directly exposing Personally Identifying Information about you. 
We do not require you to provide or use your real name for the setup of a Aegis User Account.

3.2 Transaction and Payment Data

If you pay by credit card, you need to provide typical credit card information (name, address, credit card number, expiration date and security code) to Aegis inc, which Aegis inc will process and transmit to the payment service provider of your choice to enable the transaction and perform anti-fraud checks. Likewise, Aegis inc will receive data from your payment service provider for the same reasons.

6. Your Rights and Control Mechanisms

The data protection laws of the European Economic Area and other territories grant their citizens certain rights in relation to their Personal Data. While other jurisdictions may provide fewer statutory rights to their citizens, we make the tools designed to exercise such rights available to our customers worldwide.

To allow you to exercise your data protection rights in a simple way we are providing a dedicated section on the Aegis support page (the "Privacy Dashboard"). This gives you access to your Personal Data, allows you to rectify and delete it where necessary and to object to its use where you feel necessary. To access it, log into the Aegis support page at us and choose the menu items My Account -> View Account Data.
As a resident of the European Economic Area you have the following rights in relation to your Personal Data: 
6.1 Right of Access. 
You have the right to access your Personal Data that we hold about you, i.e. the right to require free of charge (i) information whether your Personal Data is retained, (ii) access to and/or (iii) duplicates of the Personal Data retained. You can use the right to access to your Personal Data through the Privacy Dashboard. If the request affects the rights and freedoms of others or is manifestly unfounded or excessive, we reserve the right to charge a reasonable fee (taking into account the administrative costs of providing the information or communication or taking the action requested) or refuse to act on the request. 

6.2 Right to Rectification. 
If we process your Personal Data, we shall endeavor to ensure by implementing suitable measures that your Personal Data is accurate and up-to-date for the purposes for which it was collected. If your Personal Data is inaccurate or incomplete, you can change the information you provided via the Privacy Dashboard.

6.3. Right to Erasure. 
You have the right to obtain deletion of Personal Data concerning you if the reason why we could collect it (see section 2. above) does not exist anymore or if there is another legal ground for its deletion. For individual items of Personal Data please edit them through the Privacy Dashboard or request the deletion via the Aegis support page. You can also request the deletion of your Aegis user account via the Aegis support page.

As a result of deleting your Aegis User Account, you will lose access to Aegis services, including the Aegis User Account, Subscriptions and game-related information linked to the Aegis User Account and the possibility to access other services you are using the Aegis User Account for. 

We allow you to restore your Aegis User Account during a grace period of 30 (thirty) days from the moment you request deletion of your Aegis User Account. This functionality allows you not to lose your account by mistake, because of your loss of your account credentials or due to hacking. During the suspension period, we will be able to finalize financial and other activities that you may have initiated before sending the Aegis User Account deletion request. After the grace period, Personal Data associated with your account will be deleted subject to section 4. above. 
In some cases, deletion of your Aegis User Account, and therefore Personal Data deletion, is complicated. Namely, if your account has a business relationship with Aegis inc, such as due to your work for a game developer, you will only be able to delete your Aegis User Account after you have transferred this role to another user or have dissolved the business relationship. In some cases, considering the complexity and number of the requests, the period for Personal Data erasure may be extended, but for no longer than two further months.

6.4 Right to Object. 
When our processing of your Personal Data is based on legitimate interests according to Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR / section 2.c) of this Privacy Policy, you have the right to object to this processing. If you object we will no longer process your Personal Data unless there are compelling and prevailing legitimate grounds for the processing as described in Article 21 of the GDPR; in particular if the data is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.  

You also have the right to lodge a complaint at a supervisory authority.

The minimum age to create a Aegis User Account is 13. Aegis inc will not knowingly collect Personal Data from children under this age. Insofar as certain countries apply a higher age of consent for the collection of Personal Data, Aegis inc requires parental consent before a Aegis User Account can be created and Personal Data associated with it collected. Aegis inc encourages parents to instruct their children to never give out personal information when online.
