Cookies


We may send you a permanent cookie when you register with us. A cookie is a small data file that can be placed on your computer's hard disk or your mobile device for record keeping purposes. Cookies can help us recognize you the next time you use the Website, and/or note the advertisements you click on and the other sites you enter via a link from outside the applicable third party Website. This allows us to tailor the Website to your preferences. We may also use the data generated from cookies to compile statistical data on your use of the Website. The Website uses four types of cookies: (i) 'session cookies' which are stored only temporarily during a browsing session in order to allow normal use of the system and are deleted from your device when the browser is closed; (ii) 'first party cookies' / 'persistent cookies' which are set and read only by our Website, saved on your computer for a fixed period (usually a year or longer) and are not deleted when the browser is closed. Such cookies are used where we need to know who you are for repeat visits, for example to allow us to store your preferences for the next login (such as user name and/or password); (iii) 'third party cookies' which are set by third party  websites who run content on the page you are viewing, for example by analytics companies who monitor and analyze our web access; and (iv) 'flash cookies' which are saved during game play to allow quicker and better playing experience. You are not obliged to accept a cookie from us or from any other website. You can modify your browser so that it will not accept cookies although you may not be able to access or use features of the Website. However, for legitimate security reasons, we may refuse access to specific website content unless you accept the use of a cookie or similar device.


We check your IP address to determine your current location in order to determine the state you are located within to establish which aspects of the Website you are permitted to use. You may not opt out of the collection of this type of geo-location data.


Use of Cache Data


A cache is a component of your mobile device that transparently stores data for record-keeping purposes. Cache data does not identify users, but does identify your mobile device. Most browsers and applications are initially set up to accept such data. If you prefer, you can program your mobile device so that it does not store this information while utilizing the Website. Certain application features may only be available through the collection of such data. We may use such data to assist in data collection and to track application usage and trends to help us better serve you. We also permit third parties who have entered into confidentiality agreements to access such data to help us monitor use of the Website for fraud or any other activity that does not comply with applicable laws.


Some of our business partners (e.g., analytical tracking software providers) use cookies and tracking technologies on the Website. We have no access to or control over these cookies or tracking technologies. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies and cache data on the Website and by us only and does not cover the use of cookies or tracking technologies by any such business partner.


Social Media Applications


When you register to use the Website and/or Services through a social media application ("App") you agree to provide your basic profile information (such as username and email address) and we may obtain the following from your social media profile through the App: (i) your basic information (including your name, profile picture, gender, networks, user ID, list of friends and any other information you made public on Facebook), (ii) your email address, and (iii) your date of birth. The App may publish in your name all of your App-related activities through your social media account, including, without limitation, achievements and winnings you earned, your high scores and more, as well as post in chats and send virtual gifts on your behalf. You shall at all times have the option to modify our permission to do all of the foregoing via your social media profile’s privacy preferences. Papaya does not have any control over information shared through your social media profile.

Third Party Websites


The Website may contain links to other websites, products, advertisements, or services. The fact that the Website links to a website or presents a banner ad or other type of advertisement does not mean that Papaya endorses or authorizes that third party, nor is it a representation of our affiliation with that third party. This Privacy Policy does not cover any collection or use of information that third party websites may collect from you, or the practices used by third parties to collect such information, and third party websites should have separate and independent privacy policies and terms of use for the purpose of collecting personal information about you. Papaya is in no way responsible for the privacy policies or the content of these other websites to which you chose to access from the Website. Please be sure to read the privacy policies of those websites when exiting the Website. If you decide to use, click on, access, or provide any personal information to a third party website, you acknowledge that you are doing so at your own risk.


Third Party Payment Processing


When you pay fees through the Website, we may process your payments through a third party website, including, without limitation, third-party payment processors. The third party website may collect certain financial information from you in order to process a payment, including your name, email address, address and other billing information. In order to delete your payment or billing information, you may need to do so with the third party website, as Papaya only has minimal secure access to those records as needed to provide the Services.


Changing or Deleting Your Information


You can modify personal information through your personal settings or by contacting us at support@papayagaming.com. You may inquire as to whether Papaya is processing your personal information, request access to your personal information, and ask that we correct, amend or delete your personal information where inaccurate. If you want us to delete your personal information, please contact us at support@papayagaming.com with your request and/or follow the necessary procedures provided through the Website. We’ll take steps to delete your information as soon we can, but some information may remain in archived/backup copies for our records or as otherwise required by law.


Papaya will use best efforts to provide you with access to your personal information. However, there may be circumstances in which we are unable to provide access, including but not limited to: (i) where the information contains legal privilege, (ii) would compromise others’ privacy or legitimate rights, (iii) where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to your privacy, or (iv) where it is commercially proprietary. If we determine that access should be restricted in any particular instance, we will provide you with an explanation of why that determination has been made and a contact point for any further inquiries. To protect your privacy, we will take commercially reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access to or making any changes to your personal information


In relation to the App, you may review, update, correct or delete any personal information by changing the applicable information provided through your social media profile. If you completely delete all this information, your Papaya account may become deactivated.


Security


We have put in place suitable technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to overcome those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes. Also please note that email and messaging systems are not considered secure, so we discourage you from sending us personal information through these mediums. If you become aware of any security vulnerability or potential data breach, please contact us immediately, and we will take the appropriate measures to address such incident, as deemed necessary. Notwithstanding, Papaya cannot assure or guarantee that any third party with which Papaya shares information will comply with its obligations regarding such information. Furthermore, even though appropriate measures are used to prevent unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that any personal identification information collected or received by us will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Policy, and do not accept liability for any unintentional disclosure.


By using the Website or providing personal information to us, you agree that we may communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the Website and/or Services. If we learn of a security system’s breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically by posting a notice on the Website or sending you an email at the email provided to us.
