Effective Date: 24th May 2018
Our Policy applies to users of Gametize in every capacity.
We will explain the following:
If you join a Project as a Guest and/or create a Player account, or if you are an Administrator by virtue of subscribing to a Basic Plan or appointed as one, you are a "user", as further described in the Admin Terms of Service and EULA (whichever is applicable). If you are using Gametize by (explicit and implicit*) invitation of a Administrator - regardless of whether the Administrator is your employer, another organization, or an individual - that Administrator will determine any additional policies regarding storage, access, modification, deletion, sharing, and retention of player data which applies to your use of Gametize. *Implicit invitation refers to an Administrator publishing his Project(s) publicly, allowing any user to access and join the Project(s).
We follow the "what's yours is yours" guideline, where the creator of the intellectual property owns their own content. This means that you retain all your ownership rights in any Content you upload onto the Gametize platform.
You license to Gametize all patent, trademarks, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights in and to such Content for publication on the Gametize platform.
You grant Gametize a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sub-licensable and transferable license to anonymize, use, prepare derivative works of and display the Content in connection with the Gametize platform and Gametize's (and its successors' and affiliates') business, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the Gametize platform (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any media channels.
The above licenses granted by you in Content will terminate within a commercially reasonable time after you remove or delete your Content from Gametize.
You understand and agree that Gametize may retain removed or deleted Content, but not display or use Content for purposes other than analytics and internal research.
The above permissions do not apply to Personal Data. Gametize will not use Personal Data under any circumstances for preparing derivative works or for any purposes other than what has been expressed. Upon your request for deletion, Gametize will not retain any Personal Data for any purposes.
Content and information submitted by users to Gametize are referred to in this policy as "Content". Here are some examples of Content: any data and content created, uploaded, posted, shared or otherwise made available by Administrators through the Gametize platform, and any data and content by Administrators and Players including text, photos, sounds, music, videos, audiovisual combinations, interactive features, profile information and anything else entered or uploaded onto Gametize.
