II. AUSFÜHRLICHE DATENSCHUTZERKLÄRUNG


1.Verarbeitung Ihrer Personenbezogenen Daten
Wir verarbeiten die folgenden Personenbezogenen Daten im Zusammenhang mit Ihrer Nutzung der Online-Dienste:
a.Personenbezogene Daten, die Sie Uns zur Verfügung stellen:
(1) Angaben bei der Anmeldung:
Um die Online-Dienste nutzen zu können benötigen Sie eines unserer zugelassenen Konten, einschließlich SAO-Konten, oder müssen sich mit einem anderen Konto („Externes Konto“) eines externen Content-Vertreibers („Content-Vertreiber“) anmelden, das die Authentifizierung durch einmaliges Anmelden bei der Plattform unseres Dienstleisters unterstützt. Sollten Sie nicht über SAO-Konten verfügen, müssen Sie ein neues Konto für die Online-Dienste einrichten. Wenn Sie ein neues Konto einrichten, erheben Wir Ihre persönlichen Daten, die Sie Uns zur Verfügung stellen, wie z. B. Ihren Vor- und Nachnamen, Ihre E-Mail-Adresse, Ihren Nutzernamen, Ihre Postleitzahl, Ihre Postanschrift, Ihre Festnetz- oder Mobilfunknummer und Ihr Passwort, sowie Ihre demografischen Informationen, die Sie Uns bereitstellen, z. B. Ihr Geschlecht.

Wenn Sie sich für die Online-Dienste mit dem Externen Konto anmelden, erhalten wir vom Content-Vertreiber im Allgemeinen nur den Namen Ihres Kontos und die Token als Ergebnis der Anmeldeauthentifizierung.

(2) Angaben zur Zahlung:
Wenn Sie Unseren kostenpflichtigen Dienst und damit zusammenhängende Inhalte im Rahmen Unserer Online-Dienste erwerben möchten, erheben Wir Ihre Angaben zur Zahlung, die Sie Uns zur Verfügung stellen, z. B. die Zahlungskartennummer, den CVC-Code und das Ablaufdatum.

(3) Von Nutzern erstellte Inhalte:
Wenn Sie die Chat-Funktion des Online-Dienste nutzen, erheben Wir sämtliche Inhalte, die Sie dort posten, einschließlich Chat-Nachrichten, Fotos, Video- und Audioinhalte, die Sie ggf. posten. Wenn Sie Uns Fotos oder Videos zur Verfügung stellen, enthalten diese Aufnahmen ggf. Metadaten, die Informationen über diese Aufnahmen preisgeben können, insbesondere über Ort und Zeitpunkt der Aufnahme.

b.Personenbezogene Daten, die Wir durch technische Mittel erheben:
Immer wenn Sie die Online-Dienste besuchen oder damit interagieren, nutzen sowohl Wir als auch externe Analysedienstleister oder sonstige Dienstleister zusätzlich zu den Informationen, die Sie den Online-Diensten zur Verfügung stellen, ggf. auch eine Reihe von Technologien, die automatisch oder passiv Informationen dazu erheben, wie auf die Online-Dienste zugegriffen wird und wie diese genutzt werden, insbesondere die Informationen über Softwareanwendungen und Peripheriegeräte (z. B. Benutzer-Sprachdaten, Benutzer-Bewegungsdaten, eindeutige Kennungen, Leistung, Konfigurationen, Nutzung und Häufigkeit der Nutzung der Funktionen), den Browser-Typ, das Betriebssystem, die aufgerufene Seite, die Nutzungsdauer der Online-Dienste und die vorangegangenen Seitenaufrufe; diese Informationen könnten als Personenbezogene Daten angesehen werden („Nutzungsdaten“). Wir erheben darüber hinaus ggf. Ihre IP-Adresse oder sonstige einmalige Identifikationsmerkmale („Geräte-Identifikationsmerkmale“) für den Computer, das mobile Endgerät, die Technologie oder sonstige Geräte (zusammen die „Geräte“), mit denen Sie auf die Online-Dienste zugreifen. Bei einem Geräte-Identifikationsmerkmal handelt es sich um eine Nummer, die Ihrem Gerät automatisch zugewiesen wird, wenn Sie auf Web-Präsenzen oder deren Server zugreifen, und Unsere Computer erkennen Ihr Gerät anhand seines Geräte-Identifikationsmerkmals. Einige Mobilfunkanbieter stellen Uns oder Unseren externen Dienstleistern ggf. Informationen in Bezug auf den physischen Standort des Geräts zur Verfügung, mit dem auf die Online-Dienste zugegriffen wird. Die Technologien, die bei den Online-Diensten zur Erhebung von Nutzungsdaten, einschließlich Geräte-Identifikationsmerkmale, eingesetzt werden, umfassen:

• Cookies, wie html-Dateien, Flash-Dateien oder sonstige Technologie, sind kleine Textdateien, die dabei helfen, Nutzerpräferenzen und Aktivitäten zu speichern („Cookies“). Ein Cookie wird auf einem Gerät platziert, das für den Zugriff auf die oder den Besuch der Online-Dienste genutzt wird. Cookies können für viele Zwecke genutzt werden, z. B. zur Wiedererkennung von Ihnen und Ihren Präferenzen, zum Tracking Ihrer Besuche der Online-Dienste und zur individuellen Anpassung Ihres Nutzerlebnisses der Online-Dienste. Sie können Ihren Browser oder Ihr Gerät so einstellen, dass die Nutzung bestimmter Cookies abgelehnt wird. Bitte beachten Sie jedoch, dass einige Features der Online-Dienste und Unsere Online-Angebote ggf. nicht mehr einwandfrei funktionieren, wenn Sie Cookies auf Ihrem Gerät deaktivieren.

• Web-Beacons, auch bekannt als Image Tags, Pixel Tags, Clear GIFS oder Web Bugs, sind kleine Codestücke, die zur Erhebung von Werbedaten, z. B. zum Zählen von Seitenaufrufen, Werbeaufrufen oder Reaktionen auf Werbung, genutzt werden („Web-Beacons“). Web-Beacons oder ähnliche Technologien können für zahlreiche Zwecke genutzt werden, insbesondere zur Zählung von Besuchern der Online-Dienste, zur Erfassung, wie der Nutzer durch die Online-Dienste navigiert, zur Zählung, wie viele gesendete E-Mails tatsächlich geöffnet wurden, oder zur Feststellung, ob gesendete Inhalte tatsächlich angesehen wurden.

• Embedded Scripts: Ein Embedded Script ist ein Programmierungscode, mit dem Informationen über Ihre Interaktionen mit den Online-Diensten (z.B. die Links, die Sie anklicken) erhoben werden. Der Code wird vorübergehend von Unserem Server oder einem externen Dienstleister auf Ihr Gerät heruntergeladen, und ist nur aktiv, solange Sie mit den Online-Diensten verbunden sind, und wird danach deaktiviert oder gelöscht.

• Dienste zur Bereitstellung von Werbung (Ad Serving Services) und Messung des Internetverkehrs Wir nutzen Technologien, die Werbeanzeigen über die Online-Dienste und innerhalb deren Videos und anderen Inhalte bereitstellen, so wie diese Inhalte im Internet bereitgestellt werden. Darüber hinaus greifen wir ggf. auf externe Netzwerk-Werbetreibende zurück, um Werbeanzeigen über die Online-Dienste bereitzustellen, und auf externe Analysedienstleister (z. B. Google Analytics), welche die Nutzung der Online-Dienste und den Aufruf Unserer Inhalte auswerten und Uns diese Informationen zur Verfügung zu stellen. Wir geben Informationen, die Sie Uns zur Verfügung stellen, z. B. Ihren Namen und/oder Ihre E-Mail-Adresse, nicht an diese Dritten weiter. Es ist jedoch möglich, dass die Werbenetzwerkbetreiber, Werbetreibenden, die Sponsoren und/oder Analysedienstleister ihre eigenen Cookies, Web-Beacons und Embedded Scripts im Rahmen der Online-Dienste auf Ihrem Gerät platzieren und darauf zugreifen. Diese Cookies, Web-Beacons und Embedded Scripts erheben ggf. im Laufe der Zeit personenbezogene Informationen oder sonstige Informationen über Ihre Nutzung der Online-Dienste und anderer Websites oder Anwendungen Dritter, und erheben ggf. auch anderweitig Informationen über Sie oder haben ggf. Zugriff auf diese Informationen, einschließlich Nutzungsdaten. Cookies und Web-Beacons, einschließlich solcher, die von externen Netzwerk-Werbetreibenden platziert werden, können unter anderem genutzt werden, um Werbeanzeigen gezielt anzuzeigen, um zu verhindern, dass Sie dieselben Werbeanzeigen zu häufig angezeigt bekommen oder Recherchen darüber anzustellen, wie sinnvoll bestimmte Werbeanzeigen für Sie sind.

Bitte beachten Sie, dass Dritte ggf. im Laufe der Zeit und auf verschiedenen Websites personenbezogene Informationen über Ihre Online-Aktivitäten erheben, wenn Sie die Online-Dienste oder andere Websites und Dienste online besuchen oder nutzen. Zum Beispiel können Dritte, die in die Online-Dienste eingebettete Inhalte oder Plug-ins, wie beispielsweise Tools zum Teilen von Inhalten auf sozialen Medien (social media sharing tools), einsetzen, die Information erhalten, dass Sie die Online-Dienste besucht oder genutzt haben, und sie können diese Information ggf. mit anderen identifizierbaren Angaben, die sie über Ihre Besuche anderer Websites oder Online-Dienste erhoben haben, kombinieren. Diese Dritten verarbeiten diese und weitere Informationen, die sie unmittelbar durch ihre Inhalte und Plug-ins erhoben haben, ggf. im Einklang mit ihren eigenen Datenschutzrichtlinien. Online Tracking. Einige Web-Browser verfügen über eine „Do Not Track“-Funktion, die den von Ihnen besuchten Websites signalisiert, dass Sie nicht möchten, dass Ihre Online-Aktivitäten verfolgt werden. Bislang ist die Art und Weise der Übertragung des Do-Not-Track-Signals durch die Browser noch nicht einheitlich geregelt. Aus diesem Grund reagieren die Online-Dienste nur auf diese Signale, soweit dies gesetzlich vorgeschrieben ist.

c.Personenbezogene Daten, die Wir von Dritten erhalten
(1) Dienstleister, die in Unserem Auftrag handeln:
Wir erhalten ggf. Personenbezogene Daten über Sie von Dienstleistern, die in Unserem Auftrag handeln. Wenn Sie zum Beispiel Ihre Kreditkarte als Zahlungsmittel wählen, erhalten Wir ggf. Personenbezogene Daten von Unserem Zahlungsdienstleister, um die Transaktion im Rahmen Unserer Maßnahmen zur Betrugsabwehr zu validieren. Wir nutzen diesen externen Zahlungsdienst darüber hinaus zur Erhebung und Speicherung Ihrer Personenbezogenen Daten, um Unsere Pflichten in Bezug auf die Finanzberichterstattung erfüllen zu können. Ggf. erlangen Wir diese Personenbezogenen Daten, um Unsere Steuererklärungspflichten zu erfüllen. Sollten Sie darüber hinaus eine andere Web-Präsenz nutzen und Ihr Einverständnis erklären, Informationen von Uns zu erhalten, leitet diese Web-Präsenz ggf. Ihre E-Mail-Adresse und andere Personenbezogene Daten an Uns weiter, so dass Wir Sie wie gewünscht kontaktieren können. Wir ergänzen die Erhobenen Daten ggf. um Aufzeichnungen Dritter, um Unsere Leistung Ihnen gegenüber zu verbessern, Unsere Inhalte auf Sie abzustimmen und Ihnen Produkte, Inhalte und Dienste zum Kauf anzubieten, von denen Wir meinen, dass Sie von Interesse für Sie sein könnten. Wir kombinieren die von diesen Dritten erhaltenen Personenbezogenen Daten ggf. mit den Erhobenen Daten. Soweit Wir keine gegenteilige Erklärung abgegeben haben, findet in diesen Fällen die vorliegende Datenschutzerklärung auf sämtliche erhaltenen Personenbezogenen Daten Anwendung.

(2) Social-Media-Anwendungen, die Uns Personenbezogene Daten zur Verfügung stellen:
Eine Funktionalität der Online-Dienste erlaubt ggf. Interaktionen der Online-Dienste mit Web-Inhalten Dritter, wie z. B. Facebook und Twitter. Diese Funktionalität ermöglicht es Ihnen, ein Produkt oder Online-Inhalte zu „liken“, Inhalte mit anderen Web-Präsenzen Dritter zu „teilen“ und die Online-Dienste mit Web-Präsenzen Dritter anderweitig zu verknüpfen. Wenn Sie Inhalte „liken“ oder „teilen“ oder Informationen anderweitig von den oder über die Online-Dienste(n) an Web-Präsenzen Dritter posten, werden diese Informationen ggf. öffentlich und die Dritten haben ggf. Zugriff auf Ihre Personenbezogenen Daten und Informationen über Ihre Nutzung der Online-Dienste. Sie können sich darüber hinaus entscheiden, Anwendungen oder Funktionen Dritter (wie z. B. Facebook-Anwendungen oder eine ähnliche Anwendung oder Funktion auf einer externen Web-Präsenz, oder durch anderweitige Verknüpfung der Online-Dienste mit einer anderen Web-Präsenz) zu nutzen, wodurch Sie Uns (bzw. dem Dritten) gestatten, Ihre Personenbezogenen Daten zu erheben (bzw. weiterzugeben). Sollten Sie sich zur vorstehend beschriebenen Nutzung entscheiden, erklären Sie sich damit einverstanden, dass Ihre Aktivitäten im Rahmen der Online-Dienste ggf. mit der Web-Präsenz dieses Dritten verknüpft werden, der wiederum ggf. Informationen über Ihre Besuche der Online-Dienste erhebt und diese Aktivitäten je nach Einstellungen in Ihrem „Profil“ oder in einer ähnlichen Funktion bei diesem Dritten veröffentlicht (z. B. wenn Sie sich dafür entscheiden, Inhalte, die Sie bei einem der Online-Dienste finden, mit Ihren „Kontakten“ bei der Web-Präsenz dieses Dritten zu teilen). Die von Uns erhobenen Personenbezogenen Daten unterliegen dieser Datenschutzerklärung. Die von dem Drittanbieter erhobenen und gespeicherten Daten unterliegen jedoch weiterhin den Datenschutzpraktiken des Dritten, einschließlich der Entscheidung, ob der Dritte Informationen weiterhin mit Uns oder anderen Dritten teilt, der Art der geteilten Informationen und Ihrer Wahlmöglichkeiten bezüglich der Einstellungen, was auf der Web-Präsenz des Dritten für andere sichtbar sein soll. Der Dritte gestattet es Ihnen ggf., eine Anwendung oder Funktion zu entfernen. In diesem Fall werden Wir nicht länger über diese Anwendung oder Funktion Personenbezogenen Daten über Sie erheben, die zuvor erhobenen Personenbezogenen Daten jedoch im Einklang mit dieser Datenschutzerklärung ggf. aufbewahren.

In jedem Fall werden die Dienstleister zu dem Zweck beauftragt, die in dieser Datenschutzerklärung beschriebenen Tätigkeiten durchzuführen. Einige der Dienstleister handeln in unserem Auftrag als Auftragsverarbeiter gemäß Art. 28 DS-GVO. Wir können jedoch im Einklang mit DS-GVO auch an andere externe Dienstleister, die als unabhängige Verantwortliche handeln (z. B. Anwälte, Wirtschaftsprüfer, Abschlussprüfer etc.) Daten übermitteln.

Wir werden weiterhin die Vertraulichkeit der Erhobenen Daten vor und nach Durchführung einer solchen Transaktion sicherstellen. Wir werden die Erhobenen Daten schnellstmöglich im Anschluss an eine solche Transaktion löschen. Soweit wir Erhobene Daten zu diesen Zwecken übermitteln, geschieht die Übermittlung auf der Grundlage von DS-GVO.
c.Einhaltung und Durchsetzung
Für Zwecke der Untersuchung von Ihnen oder gegen Sie vorgebrachter Beschwerden oder um Uns oder andere vor illegalen, kriminellen oder schädlichen Handlungen zu schützen oder dagegen zu verteidigen, werden Wir Ihre Daten in dem nach den anwendbaren gesetzlichen Bestimmungen, Vorschriften bzw. Verordnungen erforderlichen oder erlaubten Rahmen speichern, nutzen und/oder offenlegen, insbesondere auch gegenüber der Polizei und sonstigen zuständigen Behörden. Soweit Wir Erhobene Daten zu diesen Zwecken übermitteln, geschieht die Übermittlung auf der Grundlage von DS-GVO.
5.Internationale Übermittlung der Erhobenen Daten
Die Erhobenen Daten werden verarbeitet, gespeichert und für die in dieser Datenschutzerklärung beschriebenen Zwecke von Ihrem Wohnsitzland in verschiedene andere Länder außerhalb Ihres Wohnsitzlandes, einschließlich Japan und der USA, übermittelt. Die Erhobenen Daten werden von Mitarbeitern außerhalb Ihres Wohnsitzlandes, die für Uns oder einen Unserer Dienstleister tätig sind, verarbeitet und können solchen Mitarbeitern gegenüber in diesen Ländern offengelegt werden. Wir ergreifen geeignete Maßnahmen, um sicherzustellen, dass alle Übermittlungen von Erhobenen Daten aus der EU in Länder außerhalb der EU die Anforderungen der anwendbaren EU-Datenschutzbestimmungen erfüllen, und dass geeignete technische und organisatorische Sicherheitsmaßnahmen getroffen werden, um die Personenbezogenen Daten gegen versehentliche oder rechtswidrige Zerstörung, versehentlichen Verlust oder versehentliche Änderung, unbefugte Offenlegung oder unbefugten Zugriff und gegen alle anderen rechtswidrigen Arten der Verarbeitung zu schützen. Bei Übermittlung von Informationen außerhalb der EU, und falls dies an einen Stakeholder oder Dienstleister in einem Land erfolgt, das nicht einem Angemessenheitsbeschluss durch die EU-Kommission unterliegt (d. h. ein Land, das nicht dasselbe Datenschutzniveau bietet wie Ihr Wohnsitzland), werden die Daten durch die von der EU-Kommission genehmigten Standardvertragsklauseln (die vorstehend in I. 9. aufgeführten Kontaktdaten erhältlich sind) oder die für den Verarbeiter verbindlichen internen Datenschutzvorschriften eines Lieferanten angemessen geschützt. Die Weiterübermittlung unterliegt den entsprechenden Anforderungen an Weiterübermittlungen nach Maßgabe anwendbaren Rechts. Dennoch kann sie sich auf Ihre Rechte als betroffene Person in Ihrer lokalen Rechtsordnung und auch in der (den) jeweiligen ausländischen Rechtsordnung(en) auswirken. Diese ausländischen Rechtsordnungen müssen Ihre personenbezogenen Informationen ggf. auch Dritten gegenüber offenlegen, z. B. gegenüber einer ausländischen Behörde. Bei Fragen oder Anliegen im Hinblick auf Unsere Vereinbarungen zu Datenübermittlungen wenden Sie sich bitte an Uns (siehe vorstehend I. 9.).

Grundsätzlich bewahren Wir die Erhobenen Daten nur so lange auf, wie dies gesetzlich erforderlich oder zulässig ist, insbesondere solange die Erhobenen Daten benötigt werden, um noch nicht verjährte Ansprüche zu erfüllen oder abzuwehren. Soweit Wir die Erhobenen Daten nicht mehr benötigen, werden sie im Einklang mit Unseren Richtlinien zerstört oder anonymisiert. Mit anonymisiert meinen Wir, dass Wir Informationen entfernen, die dazu genutzt werden könnten, Sie anhand der Erhobenen Daten zu identifizieren.

a.Recht auf Auskunft:

b. Personal Data We collect by technical means:
In addition to any information that you choose to provide to the Online Service, whenever you visit or interact with the Online Service, We, as well as any third-party analytics providers or other service providers, may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect information about how the Online Service is accessed and used, including but not limited to, information about software applications and peripheral devices (such as user voice data, user motion data, unique identifiers, performance, configurations, use and frequency of use of the functions), browser type, operating system, the page served, time on the Online Service, and the preceding page views, which might be qualified as Personal Data ("Usage Information"). We may also automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifiers ("Device Identifiers") for the computer, mobile device, technology or other device (collectively, "Devices") you use to access the Online Service. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device when you access a property or its servers, and Our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier. Some mobile service providers may also provide Us or Our third-party service providers with information regarding the physical location of the Device used to access the Online Service. The technologies used on the Online Service to collect Usage Information, including Device Identifiers, include:

• Cookies, which may be html files, Flash files or other technology, are small text files that help store user preferences and activity ("Cookies"). A Cookie is placed on a Device when that Device is used to access or visit the Online Service. Cookies may be used for many purposes, such as remembering you and your preferences, tracking your visits to the Online Service and customizing your experience on the Online Service. You may configure your browser or Device to block the use of certain cookies. However, please note that if you choose to disable cookies on your Device, some features of the Online Service and Our online offerings may not function properly.

• Web Beacons, also known as image tags, pixel tags, clear GIFS or web bugs, are small pieces of code used to collect advertising data, such as counting page views, promotion views or advertising responses (“Web Beacons”). Web Beacons or similar technologies may be used for various purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to the Online Service, to monitor how users navigate the Online Service, to count how many sent emails were actually opened or to determine whether content sent was actually viewed.

• Embedded Scripts: An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Online Service, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your Device from Our server or a third-party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Online Service, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.

• Ad Serving and Traffic Measurement Services
We license technology to serve advertisements on the Online Service and within its videos and other content as that content is served across the Internet. In addition, We may use third party network advertisers to serve advertisements on the Online Service and third-party analytics service providers (such as Google Analytics) to evaluate and provide Us with information about the use of the Online Service and viewing of Our content. We do not share the information that you provide to Us, such as your name and/or email address with these third parties, but ad network providers, the advertisers, the sponsors, and/or analytics service providers may set and access their own cookies, web beacons and embedded scripts on your Device from the Online Service. These cookies, web beacons, and embedded scripts may collect personal information or other information about your use of the Online Service over time and other third-party websites or applications and they may otherwise collect or have access to information about you, including Usage Information.

Please note that third parties may collect personal information about your online activities over time and across different websites when you visit or use the Online Service or other online websites and services. For example, some third parties' embedded content or plugins on the Online Service, such as social media sharing tools, allow their operators to learn that you have visited or interacted with the Online Service, and they may combine this information with other, identifiable information they have collected about your visits to other websites or online services. These third parties may handle this information, and other information they directly collect through their content and plugins, pursuant to their own privacy policies.
Online Tracking. Some web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” feature that signals to websites that you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. How browsers communicate the Do Not Track signal is not yet uniform. For this reason, the Online Service do not respond to such signals, except where required by law.
c. Personal Data We Receive from Third Parties
(1) Service providers acting on Our behalf:
We may receive Personal Data about you from service providers working on Our behalf. For example, if you choose to apply your credit card for payment, We may receive Personal Data through Our third-party payment provider in order to validate the transaction as part of Our anti-fraud efforts. We also use this third-party payment service to collect and store your Personal Data so that We can meet Our financial reporting requirements.

If you choose to “like” or “share” content or to otherwise post information from or via the Online Service to a third-party property, that information may become public and the third-party property may have access to your Personal Data and information regarding your use of the Online Service. You may also choose to participate in a third-party application or feature (such as Facebook applications or a similar application or feature on a third-party property, or otherwise linking the Online Service with another property) through which you allow Us to collect (or the third party to share) your Personal Data. When you choose to participate, you may be opting to link your activity on the Online Service with that third-party property, which may then collect information about your visits to the Online Service and may publish that activity as you request to your "profile" or similar feature with that third party (such as if you choose to share content you find on one of the Online Service with your "connections" on the third party's property). The Personal Data We collect is subject to this Privacy Policy. However, the Personal Data collected and stored by the third party remains subject to the third party's privacy practices, including whether the third party continues to share information with Us or with other third parties, the types of information shared, and your choices regarding what is visible to others on that third party's property.

1. What data do we collect when you use the Online Service
For the purpose of this Privacy Policy, "Personal Information" means any information about or related to an identified or identifiable individual. This includes information that can identify an individual in combination with other information that is stored by us, even if such information cannot identify the individual on its own. In relation to your use of the Online Service, we collect and use information or data as described below (collectively, the “Collected Data”), some of which may be considered “Personal Information” under applicable law in your jurisdiction.

The provision of your Personal Information is voluntary. However, if you do not provide us with your Personal Information, we may not be able to provide you with the requested services or respond to your requests.
Information you provide to us:
Registration Information:
In order to use the Online Service, you will need to have any of our eligible accounts, including SAO Accounts, or to sign in with any other accounts of the content distributor that is supported for authentication with single sign-on to the Online Service ("External Account"). If you do not have SAO Accounts, you are recommended to create a new account for the Online Service. When you newly create and register for an account, we collect your credential information that you provide to us, such as your first and last name, email address, username, zip code, postal address, telephone or mobile phone number and password, as well as your demographic information that you provide us, such as gender.

If you sign in the Online Service with the External Account, in general, we will receive only the name of your account and tokens as a result of sign-in authentication from external contents distributor.
Please note that the information we collect from and through the content distributor may depend on the privacy settings you have set with that distributor and the permissions you grant to us in connection with linking the Online Service. We do not share any Collected Data with that distributor. The personal information that content distributor has about you is obtained by them independent of our service and we are not responsible for it.

Payment Information:
When you wish to purchase our paid service and related contents on the Online Service, we collect your payment information that you provide to us, such as payment card number, CVC code and expiration date.

User Generated Content:
When you use the chat function of the Online Service, we collect any content that you choose to post there, including any chat messages, photos, video and audio that you may choose to post. If you provide us with photos or videos, such images may include metadata which can indicate information about the images, including but not limited to, where and when the image was taken.
Information we collect automatically:
In addition to any information that you choose to provide to the Online Service, whenever you visit or interact with the Online Service, we, as well as any third-party analytics providers or other service providers, may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect information about how the Online Service is accessed and used ("Usage Information"). Usage Information may include, without limitation, information about software applications and peripheral devices (such as user voice data, user motion data, unique identifiers, performance, configurations, use and frequency of use of the functions), browser type, operating system, the page served, time on the Online Service, and the preceding page views. Usage Information is treated as personal information where required by law.

We may also automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifiers ("Device Identifiers") for the computer, mobile device, technology or other device (collectively, "Devices") you use to access the Online Service. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device when you access a property or its servers, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier. Some mobile service providers may also provide us or our third-party service providers with information regarding the physical location of the Device used to access the Online Service.

The technologies used on the Online Service to collect Usage Information, including Device Identifiers, include: • Cookies: "Cookies" (which may be html files, Flash files or other technology) are small text files that help store user preferences and activity. A Cookie is placed on a Device when that Device is used to access or visit the Online Service. Cookies may be used for many purposes, such as remembering you and your preferences, tracking your visits to the Online Service and customizing your experience on the Online Service. You may configure your browser or Device to block the use of certain cookies. However, please note that if you choose to disable cookies on your Device, some features of the Online Service and our online offerings may not function properly.
• Web Beacons: “Web beacons” (also known as image tags, pixel tags, clear GIFS or web bugs) are small pieces of code used to collect advertising data, such as counting page views, promotion views or advertising responses. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for various purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to the Online Service, to monitor how users navigate the Online Service, to count how many sent e-mails were actually opened or to determine whether content sent was actually viewed.
• Embedded Scripts: An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Online Service, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your Device from our server or a third-party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Online Service, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.

Please note that third parties may collect personal information about your online activities over time and across different websites when you visit or use the Online Service or other online websites and services. For example, some third parties' embedded content or plugins on the Online Service, such as social media sharing tools, allow their operators to learn that you have visited or interacted with the Online Service, and they may combine this information with other, identifiable information they have collected about your visits to other websites or online services. These third parties may handle this information, and other information they directly collect through their content and plugins, pursuant to their own privacy policies.
Online Tracking. Some web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” feature that signals to websites that you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. How browsers communicate the Do Not Track signal is not yet uniform. For this reason, the Online Service do not respond to such signals, except where required by law.
Ad Serving and Traffic Measurement Services We May Use:
We license technology to serve advertisements on the Online Service and within its videos and other content as that content is served across the Internet. In addition, we may use third party network advertisers to serve advertisements on the Online Service and third-party analytics service providers (such as Google Analytics) to evaluate and provide us with information about the use of the Online Service and viewing of our content. We do not share the information that you provide to us, such as your name and/or email address with these third parties, but ad network providers, the advertisers, the sponsors, and/or analytics service providers may set and access their own cookies, web beacons and embedded scripts on your Device from the Online Service. These cookies, web beacons, and embedded scripts may collect personal information or other information about your use of the Online Service over time and other third-party websites or applications and they may otherwise collect or have access to information about you, including Usage Information. Cookies and web beacons, including those set by third party network advertisers, may be used to, among other things, target advertisements, prevent you from seeing the same advertisements too many times, or conduct research regarding the usefulness of certain advertisements to you.

Social Media Applications:
Functionality on the Online Service may permit interactions between the Online Service and third-party properties, such as Facebook and Twitter. Such functionality enables you to “like” a product or online content, “share” content to other properties, and otherwise link the Online Service with another third-party property.

You may also choose to participate in a third-party application or feature (such as Facebook applications or a similar application or feature on a third-party property, or otherwise linking the Online Service with another property) through which you allow us to collect (or the third party to share) information about you, including personal information. When you choose to participate, you may be opting to link your activity on the Online Service with that third-party property, which may then collect information about your visits to the Online Service and may publish that activity as you request to your "profile" or similar feature with that third party (such as if you choose to share content you find on one of the Online Service with your "connections" on the third party's property). The information we collect is subject to this Privacy Policy. However, the information collected and stored by the third party remains subject to the third party's privacy practices, including whether the third party continues to share information with us or with other third parties, the types of information shared, and your choices regarding what is visible to others on that third party's property. The third party may allow you to remove an application or feature, in which case we will no longer collect information about you through the application or feature, but we may retain the information previously collected in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
Third Party Content, Links to Other Properties and Services, and Our Content on Other Websites
Certain content on the Online Service may be hosted and served by third parties, which may include third party widgets (such as those that allow you to "like" or "share" content with third party websites and interactive services or to provide ratings and reviews).

1. 온라인 서비스 사용시 수집하는 데이터
본 개인정보 처리방침상 "개인정보"는 개인을 식별하거나 식별할 수 있는 개인에 관한 정보 또는 개인과 관련된 정보를 의미합니다. 여기에는 개인을 식별할 수 있는 정보와 당사가 저장하는 다른 정보가 포함됩니다. 이는 해당 정보만으로는 개인을 식별할 수 없는 경우에도 마찬가지입니다. 온라인 서비스 사용과 관련하여 당사는 아래에 설명된 정보 또는 데이터(통칭하여 "수집된 데이터")를 수집 및 사용하며, 그 중 일부는 해당 관할 지역의 관련 법률에 따라 "개인정보"로 간주될 수 있습니다.
귀하가 당사에 제공하는 정보
등록 정보:
온라인 서비스를 사용하기 위해 귀하는SAO 계정을 비롯한 당사의 적격 계정을 보유하여야 합니다. 또는 귀하는 온라인 서비스에 대한 SSO(Single Sign-On) 인증을 지원하는 콘텐츠 유통업체의 다른 계정으로 로그인 하여야 합니다(이하 “외부 계정”). 만약 귀하께서SAO 계정이 없는 경우, 온라인 서비스를 위한 새로운 계정을 만드는 것을 추천합니다. 귀하가 계정을 새로 만들고 등록하는 과정에서 당사는 아래와 같은 개인정보를 수집합니다.

(a) 필수 항목: 계정 정보(예: 성명, 이메일 주소, 사용자 이름, 우편번호, 주소, 전화번호 또는 휴대전화번호, 비밀번호);

귀하께서 외부 계정으로 온라인 서비스에 로그인하는 경우, 일반적으로 당사는 외부 콘텐츠 유통업체의 로그인 인증의 결과로서 귀하 계정의 이름과 토큰들만 받게 됩니다.
당사가 외부 콘텐츠 유통업체를 통해 수집하는 정보는 귀하가 해당 유통업체와 설정한 개인 정보 보호 설정과 귀하가 온라인 서비스를 링크하는 것과 관련하여 당사에게 부여한 권한들에 따라 달라질 수 있습니다. 당사는 어떠한 수집된 데이터도 이러한 유통업체와 공유하지 않습니다. 콘텐츠 유통업체가 귀하에 대해 보유하고 있는 개인정보는 그들이 당사의 서비스와 별개로 획득한 것이고, 당사는 이에 대해 책임을 지지 않습니다.

결제 정보:
귀하가 온라인 서비스에서 유료 서비스 및 관련 콘텐츠를 구매하고자 하는 경우 당사는 아래와 같은 결제 정보를 수집합니다:

(a) 필수 항목: 카드 번호, CVC 코드, 카드 유효기간

사용자 생성 콘텐츠:
귀하가 온라인 서비스의 채팅 기능을 사용할 때 당사는 채팅 메시지, 사진, 비디오, 오디오 등 귀하가 포스팅한 모든 콘텐츠를 수집합니다. 귀하가 사진 또는 비디오를 제공한 경우 이러한 이미지에는 이미지 정보를 나타내는 메타데이터가 포함될 수 있습니다. 여기에는 이미지를 찍은 위치 및 시기 등이 포함되며 이에 한정되지 않습니다.

당사가 자동으로 수집하는 정보:
귀하가 온라인 서비스에 제공하기로 동의한 정보 외에도 귀하가 온라인 서비스를 방문하거나 상호 작용할 때마다 당사는 물론 분석도구를 공급하는 제3자 또는 기타 서비스 공급자는 귀하가 온라인 서비스에 어떻게 액세스하고 온라인 서비스를 어떻게 사용하는지에 대한 정보(통칭하여 "사용 정보")를 자동으로 또는 수동적으로 수집하며 이를 위한 다양한 기술을 사용할 수 있습니다. 사용 정보에는 소프트웨어 애플리케이션 및 주변 장치(사용자 음성 데이터, 사용자 모션 데이터, 고유 식별자, 성능, 구성, 사용 및 기능 사용 빈도 등)에 대한 정보, 브라우저 종류, 운영 체제, 제공되는 페이지, 온라인 서비스의 시간 및 이전 페이지 뷰가 포함될 수 있습니다. 사용 정보는 관련 법령에서 정한 바에 따라 개인 정보로 취급될 수 있습니다.

또한 당사는 귀하가 온라인 서비스에 액세스하는 데 사용하는 컴퓨터, 모바일 장치, 기술 또는 기타 장치(통칭하여 "장치")에 대한 귀하의 IP 주소 또는 기타 고유 식별자("장치 식별자")를 자동으로 수집할 수 있습니다. 장치 식별자는 자산 또는 해당 서버에 액세스할 때 귀하의 장치에 자동으로 할당되는 번호이며, 당사의 컴퓨터는 장치 식별자로 귀하의 장치를 식별합니다. 일부 모바일 서비스 공급자는 온라인 서비스에 액세스하는 데 사용되는 장치의 물리적 위치에 대한 정보를 당사 또는 타사 서비스 공급자에게 제공할 수도 있습니다.

장치 식별자를 포함하여 사용 정보를 수집하기 위해 온라인 서비스에서 사용되는 기술은 다음과 같습니다.
• 쿠키: "쿠키"(HTML 파일, 플래시 파일 또는 기타 기술)는 사용자의 기본 설정 및 활동을 저장하는 데 도움이 되는 작은 텍스트 파일입니다. 장치가 온라인 서비스에 액세스하거나 방문하기 위하여 사용될 때 장치에 쿠키가 저장됩니다. 쿠키는 사용자 및 사용자의 기본 설정을 기억하고 온라인 서비스 방문을 추적하며, 온라인 서비스에서의 귀하의 경험을 커스터마이징하는 등 다양한 용도로 사용될 수 있습니다. 귀하는 특정 쿠키의 사용을 차단하도록 브라우저 또는 장치를 조정할 수 있습니다. 그러나 장치에서 쿠키를 사용하지 않도록 선택하면 온라인 서비스의 일부 기능과 온라인 서비스가 제대로 작동하지 않을 수 있습니다.
• 웹 비콘: “웹 비콘”(이미지 태그, 픽셀 태그, 클리어 GIFS 또는 웹 버그라고도 함)은 페이지 뷰, 프로모션 뷰 또는 광고 응답 횟수와 같은 광고 데이터를 수집하는 데 사용되는 작은 코드입니다. 웹 비콘 또는 유사 기술은 온라인 서비스 방문자 수를 계산하고, 사용자가 온라인 서비스를 탐색하는 방법을 모니터링하고, 전송된 전자메일 중 실제로 확인된 메일의 수를 계산하거나 전송된 콘텐츠가 실제로 보여지는지 여부를 확인하는 등 다양한 용도로 제한없이 사용될 수 있습니다.
• 임베디드 스크립트: 임베디드 스크립트는 온라인 서비스와의 상호 작용에 대한 정보를 수집하도록 설계된 프로그래밍 코드입니다(예: 클릭한 링크). 이 코드는 당사 서버 또는 타사 서비스 공급자로부터 장치에 일시적으로 다운로드되며 온라인 서비스에 연결되어 있는 동안에만 활성 상태이며, 이후에는 비활성화되거나 삭제됩니다.

귀하가 온라인 서비스 또는 기타 온라인 웹 사이트 및 서비스를 방문하거나 사용할 때 제3자가 다른 웹 사이트를 통해 귀하의 온라인 활동에 대한 정보를 수집할 수 있습니다. 예를 들어, SNS 공유 도구와 같은 일부 타사 임베디드 콘텐츠 또는 플러그인을 통해 운영자는 귀하가 온라인 서비스를 방문하였거나 상호 작용했다는 사실을 알 수 있습니다. 또한 제3자는 위 정보와 그들이 귀하가 다른 웹 사이트 또는 서비스를 방문할 당시 수집한 식별 가능한 정보를 결합할 수 있습니다. 이러한 제3자는 위 정보와 그들이 콘텐츠 및 플러그인을 통해 직접 수집한 기타 정보를 그들의 개인정보 보호 정책에 따라 처리할 수 있습니다. 온라인 추적. 일부 웹 브라우저는 사용자가 방문한 웹 사이트에 온라인 활동을 추적하지 말라는 신호를 보낼 수 있게 하는 "추적 안 함" 기능을 지니고 있습니다. 브라우저들이 “추적 안 함” 신호를 보내는 방식은 아직 통일되어 있지 않습니다. 이러한 이유로 온라인 서비스는 법률이 요구하는 경우를 제외하고 이러한 신호에 응답하지 않습니다.
광고 서비스 및 트래픽 측정 서비스:
당사는 온라인 서비스와 해당 동영상 및 기타 콘텐츠에 대한 광고를 인터넷을 통해 제공하는 기술을 사용합니다. 또한, 당사는 온라인 서비스에 대한 광고를 제공하기 위해 타사 네트워크 광고주를 사용하고, 온라인 서비스 사용 및 콘텐츠 뷰에 대한 정보를 평가하고 제공받기 위하여 타사 분석 서비스 제공업체(Google Analytics 등)를 사용할 수 있습니다. 당사는 귀하가 당사에 제공하는 이름 및/또는 이메일 주소 등의 정보를 타사와 공유하지 않지만, 광고 네트워크 공급자, 광고주, 스폰서, 및/또는 분석 서비스 공급자는 온라인 서비스에서 사용자 장치에 자체 쿠키, 웹 비콘 및 임베디드 스크립트를 설정하고 접근할 수 있습니다. 이러한 쿠키, 웹 비콘 및 임베디드 스크립트는 귀하의 개인정보나 온라인 서비스 사용에 관한 다른 정보를 수집할 수 있으며, 그 밖의 다른 방법으로 사용 정보를 수집하거나 액세스할 수 있습니다. 쿠키 및 웹 비콘(타사 네트워크 광고주가 설정한 것 포함)은 특히 타겟 광고를 사용하거나, 동일한 광고를 너무 많이 보지 못하게 하거나, 특정 광고의 유용성에 대한 조사를 수행하는 데 사용될 수 있습니다.

이러한 쿠키를 수신 거부하려면 아래 선택 사항을 실행하십시오.

최적화된 모바일 기기나 데스크톱 웹 사이트에서 작동하는 관심 기반 광고를 일반적으로 거부하려면, 미국의 NAI(Network Advertising Initiative, https://www.networkadvertising.org/), 미국의 DAA(Digital Advertising Alliance, http://youradchoices.com)를 방문하십시오. 모바일 애플리케이션을 사용하는 경우 장치 설정을 업데이트하십시오. 이러한 쿠키를 거부하여도 여전히 광고를 수신할 수 있지만, 귀하가 거부한 네트워크는 귀하의 관심에 맞는 광고를 더 이상 제공하지 않습니다.

방문자가 온라인 서비스와 상호 작용하는 방식을 이해하는 데 사용되는 Google Analytics를 거부하려면 https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout 을 방문하십시오.

"도움말" 또는 "인터넷 옵션" 섹션에 있는 인터넷 브라우저 설정을 검토하여 DAA, NAI에 속하지 않는 특정 쿠키에 대한 선택 사항을 실행하십시오.

DAA, NAI에 속하지 않는 회사에서 제공하는 쿠키를 거부하도록 브라우저 설정을 구성하는 방법에 대한 지침을 보려면 https://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/ 를 클릭 하십시오
"쿠키"가 있는 파일을 검색하고 삭제하여 귀하의 컴퓨터 하드 드라이브에 이미 저장되어 있는 쿠키를 모두 삭제할 수도 있습니다.

추가 수신 거부 선택: 특정 쿠키의 사용을 차단하도록 브라우저나 장치를 구성할 수 있습니다.
특정 쿠키가 없으면, 온라인 서비스에서 특정 기능을 사용하기 어려울 수 있습니다.
SNS 애플리케이션:
온라인 서비스의 기능을 통해 온라인 서비스와 Facebook, Twitter 등 타사 서비스 사이의 상호 작용을 할 수 있습니다. 이러한 기능을 사용하면 귀하는 제품 또는 온라인 콘텐츠에 "좋아요"를 누르고, 타사 사이트의 콘텐츠를 "공유"하고, 다른 타사 사이트와 온라인 서비스를 연결할 수 있습니다. 귀하가 콘텐츠를 "좋아요" 또는 "공유"하거나 온라인 서비스를 통해 타사 사이트에 정보를 게시하도록 선택한 경우 해당 정보가 공개될 수 있으며 타사 사이트를 통해 귀하의 정보 및 온라인 서비스 사용에 대한 정보가 액세스될 수 있습니다.

또한 귀하는 타사의 응용 프로그램이나 기능(예: Facebook 응용 프로그램 또는 유사한 응용 프로그램이나 타사 사이트의 기능 또는 온라인 서비스를 다른 사이트에 링크하는 기능)에 참여할 것인지 선택할 수 있고, 이를 통해 귀하는 당사가 귀하에 대한 정보(개인정보 포함)를 수집하거나 제3자가 공유하는 것을 허용하게 됩니다. 귀하가 참여를 선택하는 경우, 귀하는 온라인 서비스에 대한 귀하의 활동을 제3자 사이트에 연결하도록 선택할 수 있습니다. 그러면 제3자는 온라인 서비스 방문 정보를 수집할 수도 있습니다. 그리고 제3자는 귀하가 귀하의 "프로필" 또는 이와 유사한 타사 사이트의 기능을 요청할 때 귀하의 활동을 게시할 수 있습니다 (예: 온라인 서비스 중 하나에서 찾은 콘텐츠를 제3자 사이트와 공유하기로 선택한 경우).

당사가 수집하는 정보는 본 개인정보 처리방침의 적용을 받습니다. 그러나 제3자가 수집 및 저장한 정보의 처리는 제3자의 개인정보 처리 실무의 적용을 받을 수 있습니다. 개인정보 처리 실무에는 제3자가 정보를 당사 또는 다른 제3자와 공유하는 것을 지속할지 여부, 공유된 정보의 유형 및 제3자 사이트의 다른 사용자에게 어떠한 정보를 공개할지에 관한 귀하의 선택 등이 포함됩니다.

제3자는 귀하로 하여금 응용 프로그램이나 기능을 삭제하는 것을 허용할 수 있는데, 이러한 경우 당사는 해당 응용 프로그램 또는 기능을 통해 귀하에 대한 정보를 더 이상 수집하지 않지만, 본 개인정보 처리방침에 따라 이전에 수집한 정보를 보유할 수 있습니다.
타사 컨텐츠, 다른 사이트 및 서비스에 대한 링크, 다른 웹 사이트에 있는 당사의 컨텐츠
온라인 서비스의 특정 콘텐츠는 타사에서 호스팅 및 제공될 수 있으며, 여기에는 타사 위젯(예: 타사 웹 사이트 및 대화형 서비스의 컨텐츠를 "좋아요" 또는 "공유"하도록 허용하거나 평점 및 리뷰 제공을 허용하는 위젯)이 포함될 수 있습니다. 또한 온라인 서비스에 접속하면 제3자가 운영하고 관리하는 다른 웹 사이트로 연결될 수 있습니다. 여기에는 공동 브랜드 계약의 일부 내용에 따라 당사의 로고(들)을 사용할 수 있는 광고주, 스폰서 및 파트너들의 링크가 포함됩니다. 또한, 당사의 콘텐츠와 위젯은 당사와 관련이 없고 통제할 수 없는 웹 페이지 및 웹 사이트에 포함될 수 있습니다. 이러한 다른 웹 사이트는 자신의 쿠키를 사용자의 장치로 보낼 수 있으며, 독립적으로 데이터를 수집하거나 개인 정보를 요청할 수 있습니다. 당사는 제3자의 개인 정보 처리 방침에 대해 책임을 지지 않습니다.

These third parties may handle this information, and other information they directly collect through their content and plugins, pursuant to their own privacy policies.
Online Tracking. Some web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” feature that signals to websites that you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked.

1. What data do we collect when you use the Online Service
For the purpose of this Privacy Policy, "Personal Information" means any information about or related to an identified or identifiable individual. This includes information that can identify an individual in combination with other information that is stored by us, even if such information cannot identify the individual on its own. In relation to your use of the Online Service, we collect and use information or data as described below (collectively, the “Collected Data”), some of which may be considered “Personal Information” under applicable law in your jurisdiction.
Information you provide to us:
Registration Information:
In order to use the Online Service, you will need to have any of our eligible accounts, including SAO Accounts, or to sign in with any other accounts of the content distributor that is supported for authentication with single sign-on to the Online Service ("External Account"). If you do not have SAO Accounts, you are recommended to create a new account for the Online Service. When you newly create and register for an account, we collect your credential information that you provide to us, such as your first and last name, email address, username, zip code, postal address, telephone or mobile phone number and password, as well as your demographic information that you provide us, such as gender.

If you sign in the Online Service with the External Account, in general, we will receive only the name of your account and tokens as a result of sign-in authentication from external contents distributor.
Please note that the information we collect from and through the content distributor may depend on the privacy settings you have set with that distributor and the permissions you grant to us in connection with linking the Online Service. We do not share any Collected Data with that distributor. The personal information that content distributor has about you is obtained by them independent of our service and we are not responsible for it.

When you wish to purchase our paid service and related contents on the Online Service, we collect your payment information that you provide to us, such as payment card number, CVC code and expiration date.

User Generated Content:
When you use the chat function of the Online Service, we collect any content that you choose to post there, including any chat messages, photos, video and audio that you may choose to post. If you provide us with photos or videos, such images may include metadata which can indicate information about the images, including but not limited to, where and when the image was taken.

Information we collect automatically:
In addition to any information that you choose to provide to the Online Service, whenever you visit or interact with the Online Service, we, as well as any third-party analytics providers or other service providers, may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect information about how the Online Service is accessed and used ("Usage Information"). "Usage Information may include, without limitation, information about software applications and peripheral devices (such as user voice data, user motion data, unique identifiers, performance, configurations, use and frequency of use of the functions), browser type, operating system, the page served, time on the Online Service, and the preceding page views. Usage Information is treated as personal information where required by law.

We may also automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifiers ("Device Identifiers") for the computer, mobile device, technology or other device (collectively, "Devices") you use to access the Online Service. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device when you access a property or its servers, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier. Some mobile service providers may also provide us or our third-party service providers with information regarding the physical location of the Device used to access the Online Service.

The technologies used on the Online Service to collect Usage Information, including Device Identifiers, include:

You may configure your browser or Device to block the use of certain cookies. However, please note that if you choose to disable cookies on your Device, some features of the Online Service and our online offerings may not function properly.
・Web Beacons: “Web beacons” (also known as image tags, pixel tags, clear GIFS or web bugs) are small pieces of code used to collect advertising data, such as counting page views, promotion views or advertising responses. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for various purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to the Online Service, to monitor how users navigate the Online Service, to count how many sent e-mails were actually opened or to determine whether content sent was actually viewed.
・Embedded Scripts: An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Online Service, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your Device from our server or a third-party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Online Service, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.

Please note that third parties may collect personal information about your online activities over time and across different websites when you visit or use the Online Service or other online websites and services. For example, some third parties' embedded content or plugins on the Online Service, such as social media sharing tools, allow their operators to learn that you have visited or interacted with the Online Service, and they may combine this information with other, identifiable information they have collected about your visits to other websites or online services. These third parties may handle this information, and other information they directly collect through their content and plugins, pursuant to their own privacy policies.
Online Tracking. Some web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” feature that signals to websites that you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. How browsers communicate the Do Not Track signal is not yet uniform. For this reason, the Online Service do not respond to such signals, except where required by law.
Ad Serving and Traffic Measurement Services We May Use:

You may also choose to participate in a third-party application or feature (such as Facebook applications or a similar application or feature on a third-party property, or otherwise linking the Online Service with another property) through which you allow us to collect (or the third party to share) information about you, including personal information. When you choose to participate, you may be opting to link your activity on the Online Service with that third-party property, which may then collect information about your visits to the Online Service and may publish that activity as you request to your "profile" or similar feature with that third party (such as if you choose to share content you find on one of the Online Service with your "connections" on the third party's property). The information we collect is subject to this Privacy Policy. However, the information collected and stored by the third party remains subject to the third party's privacy practices, including whether the third party continues to share information with us or with other third parties, the types of information shared, and your choices regarding what is visible to others on that third party's property.

1. What data do we collect when you use the Online Service
For the purpose of this Privacy Policy, "Personal Information" means any information about or related to an identified or identifiable individual. This includes information that can identify an individual in combination with other information that is stored by us, even if such information cannot identify the individual on its own. In relation to your use of the Online Service, we collect and use information or data as described below (collectively, the “Collected Data”), some of which may be considered “Personal Information” under applicable law in your jurisdiction.
Information you provide to us:
Registration Information:
In order to use the Online Service, you will need to have any of our eligible accounts, including SAO Accounts, or to sign in with any other accounts of the content distributor that is supported for authentication with single sign-on to the Online Service ("External Account"). If you do not have SAO Accounts, you are recommended to create a new account for the Online Service. When you newly create and register for an account, we collect your credential information that you provide to us, such as your first and last name, email address, username, zip code, postal address, telephone or mobile phone number and password, as well as your demographic information that you provide us, such as gender.

If you sign in the Online Service with the External Account, in general, we will receive only the name of your account and tokens as a result of sign-in authentication from external contents distributor.
Please note that the information we collect from and through the content distributor may depend on the privacy settings you have set with that distributor and the permissions you grant to us in connection with linking the Online Service. We do not share any Collected Data with that distributor. The personal information that content distributor has about you is obtained by them independent of our service and we are not responsible for it.

If you provide us with photos or videos, such images may include metadata which can indicate information about the images, including but not limited to, where and when the image was taken.

If you choose not to provide the above information, we will not be able to provide the Online Service.

Information we collect automatically:
In addition to any information that you choose to provide to the Online Service, whenever you visit or interact with the Online Service, we, as well as any third-party analytics providers or other service providers, may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect information about how the Online Service is accessed and used ("Usage Information"). "Usage Information may include, without limitation, information about software applications and peripheral devices (such as user voice data, user motion data, unique identifiers, performance, configurations, use and frequency of use of the functions), browser type, operating system, the page served, time on the Online Service, and the preceding page views. Usage Information is treated as personal information where required by law.

We may also automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifiers ("Device Identifiers") for the computer, mobile device, technology or other device (collectively, "Devices") you use to access the Online Service. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device when you access a property or its servers, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier. Some mobile service providers may also provide us or our third-party service providers with information regarding the physical location of the Device used to access the Online Service.

The technologies used on the Online Service to collect Usage Information, including Device Identifiers, include:

Please note that third parties may collect personal information about your online activities over time and across different websites when you visit or use the Online Service or other online websites and services.

These third parties may handle this information, and other information they directly collect through their content and plugins, pursuant to their own privacy policies.
Online Tracking. Some web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” feature that signals to websites that you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked.

When you choose to participate, you may be opting to link your activity on the Online Service with that third-party property, which may then collect information about your visits to the Online Service and may publish that activity as you request to your "profile" or similar feature with that third party (such as if you choose to share content you find on one of the Online Service with your "connections" on the third party's property). The information we collect is subject to this Privacy Policy. However, the information collected and stored by the third party remains subject to the third party's privacy practices, including whether the third party continues to share information with us or with other third parties, the types of information shared, and your choices regarding what is visible to others on that third party's property.

1. What data do we collect when you use the Online Service
For the purpose of this Privacy Policy, "Personal Information" means any information about or related to an identified or identifiable individual. This includes information that can identify an individual in combination with other information that is stored by us, even if such information cannot identify the individual on its own. In relation to your use of the Online Service, we collect and use information or data as described below (collectively, the “Collected Data”), some of which may be considered “Personal Information” under applicable law in your jurisdiction.
Information you provide to us:
Registration Information:
In order to use the Online Service, you will need to have any of our eligible accounts, including SAO Accounts, or to sign in with any other accounts of the content distributor that is supported for authentication with single sign-on to the Online Service ("External Account"). If you do not have SAO Accounts, you are recommended to create a new account for the Online Service. When you newly create and register for an account, we collect your credential information that you provide to us, such as your first and last name, email address, username, zip code, postal address, telephone or mobile phone number and password, as well as your demographic information that you provide us, such as gender.

If you sign in the Online Service with the External Account, in general, we will receive only the name of your account and tokens as a result of sign-in authentication from external contents distributor.
Please note that the information we collect from and through the content distributor may depend on the privacy settings you have set with that content distributor and the permissions you grant to us in connection with linking the Online Service. We do not share any Collected Data with that content distributor. The Personal Information that content distributor has about you is obtained by them independent of our service and we are not responsible for it.

Payment Information:
When you wish to purchase our paid service and related contents on the Online Service, we collect your payment information that you provide to us, such as payment card number, CVC code and expiration date.

User Generated Content:
When you use the chat function of the Online Service, we collect any content that you choose to post there, including any chat messages, photos, video and audio that you may choose to post. If you provide us with photos or videos, such images may include metadata which can indicate information about the images, including but not limited to, where and when the image was taken.

Information we collect automatically:
In addition to any information that you choose to provide to the Online Service, whenever you visit or interact with the Online Service, we, as well as any third-party analytics providers or other service providers, may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect information about how the Online Service is accessed and used ("Usage Information"). Usage Information may include, without limitation, information about software applications and peripheral devices (such as user voice data, user motion data, unique identifiers, performance, configurations, use and frequency of use of the functions), browser type, operating system, the page served, time on the Online Service, and the preceding page views. Usage Information is treated as personal information where required by law.

We may also automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifiers ("Device Identifiers") for the computer, mobile device, technology or other device (collectively, "Devices") you use to access the Online Service. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device when you access a property or its servers, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier. Some mobile service providers may also provide us or our third-party service providers with information regarding the physical location of the Device used to access the Online Service.

The technologies used on the Online Service to collect Usage Information, including Device Identifiers, include:
Cookies: "Cookies" (which may be html files, Flash files or other technology) are small text files that help store user preferences and activity. A Cookie is placed on a Device when that Device is used to access or visit the Online Service. Cookies may be used for many purposes, such as remembering you and your preferences, tracking your visits to the Online Service and customizing your experience on the Online Service. You may configure your browser or Device to block the use of certain Cookies. However, please note that if you choose to disable Cookies on your Device, some features of the Online Service and our online offerings may not function properly.
Web Beacons: “Web beacons” (also known as image tags, pixel tags, clear GIFS or web bugs) are small pieces of code used to collect advertising data, such as counting page views, promotion views or advertising responses. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for various purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to the Online Service, to monitor how users navigate the Online Service, to count how many sent e-mails were actually opened or to determine whether content sent was actually viewed.
Embedded Scripts: An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Online Service, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your Device from our server or a third-party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Online Service, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
Please note that third parties may collect Personal Information about your online activities over time and across different websites when you visit or use the Online Service or other online websites and services. For example, some third parties' embedded content or plugins on the Online Service, such as social media sharing tools, allow their operators to learn that you have visited or interacted with the Online Service, and they may combine this information with other, identifiable information they have collected about your visits to other websites or online services. These third parties may handle this information, and other information they directly collect through their content and plugins, pursuant to their own privacy policies.
Online Tracking. Some web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” feature that signals to websites that you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. How browsers communicate the Do Not Track signal is not yet uniform. For this reason, the Online Service do not respond to such signals, except where required by law.

Ad Serving and Traffic Measurement Services We May Use:
We license technology to serve advertisements on the Online Service and within its videos and other content as that content is served across the Internet. In addition, we may use third party network advertisers to serve advertisements on the Online Service and third-party analytics service providers (such as Google Analytics) to evaluate and provide us with information about the use of the Online Service and viewing of our content. We do not share the information that you provide to us, such as your name and/or email address with these third parties, but ad network providers, the advertisers, the sponsors, and/or analytics service providers may set and access their own cookies, web beacons and embedded scripts on your Device from the Online Service. These cookies, web beacons, and embedded scripts may collect Personal Information or other information about your use of the Online Service over time and other third-party websites or applications and they may otherwise collect or have access to information about you, including Usage Information. Cookies and web beacons, including those set by third party network advertisers, may be used to, among other things, target advertisements, prevent you from seeing the same advertisements too many times, or conduct research regarding the usefulness of certain advertisements to you.

Social Media Applications:
Functionality on the Online Service may permit interactions between the Online Service and third-party properties, such as Facebook and Twitter. Such functionality enables you to “like” a product or online content, “share” content to other properties, and otherwise link the Online Service with another third-party property. If you choose to “like” or “share” content or to otherwise post information from or via the Online Service to a third-party property, that information may become public and the third-party property may have access to information about you and your use of the Online Service.

You may also choose to participate in a third-party application or feature (such as Facebook applications or a similar application or feature on a third-party property, or otherwise linking the Online Service with another property) through which you allow us to collect (or the third party to share) information about you, including Personal Information. When you choose to participate, you may be opting to link your activity on the Online Service with that third-party property, which may then collect information about your visits to the Online Service and may publish that activity as you request to your "profile" or similar feature with that third party (such as if you choose to share content you find on one of the Online Service with your "connections" on the third party's property). The information we collect is subject to this Privacy Policy. However, the information collected and stored by the third party remains subject to the third party's privacy practices, including whether the third party continues to share information with us or with other third parties, the types of information shared, and your choices regarding what is visible to others on that third party's property. The third party may allow you to remove an application or feature, in which case we will no longer collect information about you through the application or feature, but we may retain the information previously collected in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Certain content on the Online Service may be hosted and served by third parties, which may include third party widgets (such as those that allow you to "like" or "share" content with third party websites and interactive services or to provide ratings and reviews). In addition, when you are on the Online Service you may be directed to other websites that are operated and controlled by third parties that are beyond our control. This includes links from advertisers, sponsors and partners that may use our logo(s) as part of a co-branding agreement.

We are not responsible for the privacy practices of any third party.

In the event that we sell or transfer a portion or all of our business, Collected Data may be transferred by us to the purchasing or acquiring entity as part of the transaction.

Where we rely on your consent for the collection, use and disclosure of Collected Data, you are entitled to request for a withdrawal of consent at any time. These rights may be limited, for example if fulfilling your request would reveal personal data about another person, or if you ask us to delete Information which we are required by law to keep, or have compelling legitimate interests in keeping.

In addition to any information that you choose to provide to the Online Service, whenever you visit or interact with the Online Service, We, as well as any third-party analytics providers or other service providers, may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect information about how the Online Service is accessed and used, including but not limited to, information about software applications and peripheral devices (such as user voice data, user motion data, unique identifiers, performance, configurations, use and frequency of use of the functions), browser type, operating system, the page served, time on the Online Service, and the preceding page views, which might be qualified as Personal Data ("Usage Information").

A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device when you access a property or its servers, and Our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier. Some mobile service providers may also provide Us or Our third-party service providers with information regarding the physical location of the Device used to access the Online Service. The technologies used on the Online Service to collect Usage Information, including Device Identifiers, include:

• Cookies, which may be html files, Flash files or other technology, are small text files that help store user preferences and activity ("Cookies").

You may configure your browser or Device to block the use of certain cookies. However, please note that if you choose to disable cookies on your Device, some features of the Online Service and Our online offerings may not function properly.

In addition, We may use third party network advertisers to serve advertisements on the Online Service and third-party analytics service providers (such as Google Analytics) to evaluate and provide Us with information about the use of the Online Service and viewing of Our content. We do not share the information that you provide to Us, such as your name and/or email address with these third parties, but ad network providers, the advertisers, the sponsors, and/or analytics service providers may set and access their own cookies, web beacons and embedded scripts on your Device from the Online Service. These cookies, web beacons, and embedded scripts may collect personal information or other information about your use of the Online Service over time and other third-party websites or applications and they may otherwise collect or have access to information about you, including Usage Information.

Please note that third parties may collect personal information about your online activities over time and across different websites when you visit or use the Online Service or other online websites and services. For example, some third parties' embedded content or plugins on the Online Service, such as social media sharing tools, allow their operators to learn that you have visited or interacted with the Online Service, and they may combine this information with other, identifiable information they have collected about your visits to other websites or online services. These third parties may handle this information, and other information they directly collect through their content and plugins, pursuant to their own privacy policies. Online Tracking.

How browsers communicate the Do Not Track signal is not yet uniform. For this reason, the Online Service do not respond to such signals, except where required by law.

c. Personal Data We Receive from Third Parties

We also use this third-party payment service to collect and store your Personal Data so that We can meet Our financial reporting requirements. We may obtain this Personal Data to fulfill Our tax reporting obligations. In addition, if you use another property and you opt-in to receive information from Us, that property may forward to Us your email address and other Personal Data so that We may contact you as requested.

You may also choose to participate in a third-party application or feature (such as Facebook applications or a similar application or feature on a third-party property, or otherwise linking the Online Service with another property) through which you allow Us to collect (or the third party to share) your Personal Data. When you choose to participate, you may be opting to link your activity on the Online Service with that third-party property, which may then collect information about your visits to the Online Service and may publish that activity as you request to your "profile" or similar feature with that third party (such as if you choose to share content you find on one of the Online Service with your "connections" on the third party's property).

However, the Personal Data collected and stored by the third party remains subject to the third party's privacy practices, including whether the third party continues to share information with Us or with other third parties, the types of information shared, and your choices regarding what is visible to others on that third party's property.

Any onward transfer is subject to appropriate onward transfer requirements as required by applicable law. Nonetheless, this may impact your data subjects rights in your local jurisdiction and also in the applicable overseas jurisdiction(s). These overseas jurisdictions may also need to disclose your personal information to a third party, e.g., an overseas authority. If you have any questions or concerns about Our data transfer arrangements, please contact Us (see I. 9. above).
6.Retention periods for and deletion of Collected Data
We will continue to retain the Collected Data for 60 months after you delete your account unless local law tells Us to keep it for longer. Please note that We may be required to retain certain information by law. In principle, We will retain the Collected Data only as long as required or permitted by applicable law, in particular as long as the Collected Data may be needed to fulfill or defend against claims that are not yet time-barred. Where We no longer require the Collected Data, it will be destroyed or de-identified in line with Our policies. When We say de-identified, We mean that We will remove information that could be used to identify you from the Collected Data.

If any part of this EULA is held invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, that provision shall be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to maintain the intent of this EULA, and the other parts will remain in full force and effect.

Class Action/Representative Action Waiver and Jury Trial Waiver
By agreeing to this EULA, you agree that you are required to resolve any claim that you may have against SONY related to the SOFTWARE or this EULA on an individual basis. You agree to waive any right you may otherwise have to bring any class, collective or representative action, and is precluded from participating in or recovering relief under any current or future class, collective, consolidated or representative action against SONY by someone else. SONY and you also agree to waive any right to a trial by jury.

Tokyo Dispute Proceedings
This EULA shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Japan. All controversies and disputes arising out of or relating to the SOFTWARE shall be submitted to the Tokyo District Court in Tokyo, Japan as the court of exclusive jurisdiction in the first instance.

Binding Arbitration
If either you or SONY elects in writing, or if a court deems the choice of law and jurisdiction clause in the preceding section unenforceable, then this EULA shall be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware, United States, and any disputes arising out of or relating to the SOFTWARE shall be resolved through binding arbitration pursuant to this section. The arbitration shall take place in the state in the United States where you are a resident when the dispute arose, or other location mutually agreed by the parties.
(1) The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (referred to as the “AAA”) under its rules and procedures, including the AAA's Consumer Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) (as applicable), as modified by this Agreement to Arbitrate. The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org. Notwithstanding any choice of law or other provision in this EULA, the parties agree and acknowledge that this Agreement to Arbitrate evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (“FAA”), will govern its interpretation and enforcement and proceedings pursuant thereto. It is the intent of the parties that the FAA and AAA Rules shall preempt all state laws to the fullest extent permitted by law. If the FAA and AAA Rules are found to not apply to any issue that arises under this Agreement to Arbitrate or the enforcement thereof, then that issue shall be resolved under the laws of the state of Delaware. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send the other party, by certified mail, a completed Notice of Dispute. You should send this notice to SONY at Midtown Tower, 9-7-1, Akasaka, Minato-ku, Tokyo, 107-6214 Japan. SONY will send any notice to you to the address SONY has on file associated with you. It is your responsibility to keep your address up to date. All information called for in the notice must be provided including a description of the nature and basis of the claims the party is asserting and the relief sought.
(2) If you and SONY are unable to resolve the claims described in the notice within 30 days after the notice is sent, you or SONY may initiate arbitration proceedings. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the AAA's website at www.adr.org. Unless both you and SONY agree otherwise, the arbitrator(s) may not consolidate or join more than one person’s or party’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a consolidated, representative, collective or class proceeding.
(3) If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you or SONY may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and SONY subject to the discretion of the arbitrator(s) to require an in-person hearing, if the circumstances warrant. In cases where an in-person hearing is held, you or SONY may attend by telephone, unless the arbitrator(s) require otherwise. Any settlement offer made by you or SONY shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator(s).
(4) The arbitrator(s) will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with applicable law, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator(s) will not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different customers of SONY but is/are bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same customer to the extent required by applicable law. The award of the arbitrator(s) shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator(s) may aware relief (including monetary, injunctive and declaratory) only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief necessitated by that party’s individual claim(s). Any relief awarded cannot affect any other SONY customers.
(5) Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules, unless otherwise stated in this Agreement to Arbitrate. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, at your request, SONY will pay all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration. Any request for payment of fees by SONY should be submitted by mail to the AAA along with your Demand for Arbitration and SONY will make arrangements to pay all necessary fees directly to the AAA. If the value of the relief sought is more than $10,000 and you are able to demonstrate that the costs of accessing arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of accessing a court for purposes of pursuing litigation on an individual basis, SONY will pay as much of the filing, administration, and arbitrator fees as the arbitrator(s) deem necessary to prevent the cost of accessing the arbitration from being prohibitive. In the event the arbitrator(s) determine the claim(s) you asserts in the arbitration to be frivolous, you agree to reimburse SONY for all fees associated with the arbitration paid by SONY on your behalf that you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA's rules.
(6) If a court decides that any part of the agreement to arbitrate in this section is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this section shall still apply.

EQUITABLE REMEDIES
Notwithstanding anything contained in this EULA to the contrary, you acknowledge and agree that any violation of or non-compliance with this EULA by you will cause irreparable harm to SONY, for which monetary damages would be inadequate, and you consent to SONY obtaining any injunctive or equitable relief that SONY deems necessary or appropriate in such circumstances. SONY may also take any legal and technical remedies to prevent violation of and/or to enforce this EULA, including, but not limited to, immediate termination of your use of the SOFTWARE, if SONY believes in its sole discretion that you are violating or intend to violate this EULA. These remedies are in addition to any other remedies SONY may have at law, in equity or under contract.

RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIRD PARTY
If any dispute arises between you and a third party due to infringement of rights or for any other reason in connection with your use of the SOFTWARE, you shall resolve such dispute at your own expense and responsibility, and SONY shall not be held liable in any way.

TERMINATION
Without prejudice to any of its other rights, SONY may terminate this EULA if you fail to comply with any of its terms. In case of such termination, you must: (i) cease all use, and destroy any copies, of the SOFTWARE; (ii) comply with the requirements in the section below entitled “Your Account Responsibilities”.

AMENDMENT
SONY may change this EULA at any time to the extent permitted by law. SONY will notify you of the revised EULA through the website ( /s/excglb/?ima=3912 ) with a prior notice period that SONY deems reasonable considering the changes, etc.; provided, however, that such prior notice period may not be set if the changes are in accordance with the general interest of you.

THIRD-PARTY BENEFICIARIES
Each THIRD-PARTY SUPPLIER is an express intended third-party beneficiary of, and shall have the right to enforce, each provision of this EULA with respect to the software of such party.

YOUR ACCOUNT RESPONSIBILITIES
Should you sell or otherwise transfer your DEVICE, or if this EULA is terminated, you are responsible for and must, if reasonably possible, uninstall the SOFTWARE from the DEVICE and delete any and all accounts you may have established on DEVICE or are accessible through the SOFTWARE. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any accounts you have with SONY or third parties and any usernames and passwords associated with your use of the DEVICE.
