2. Client details:

We may gather device-identifiable information (DII), which includes cookies, unique device and advertising identifiers, usernames, and similar identifiers that can be linked to a browser or device. Additionally, we may acquire additional details, such as your IP address, user agent, timestamps, precise and imprecise geolocation, sensor data, installed apps, fonts, battery status, and screen dimensions from these platforms.

Our Services also record details of your interactions, including paths you navigate, search queries, instances of application crashes, timestamps, purchases, clicks, shares, and referral URLs. We might combine this information with both Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and DII. To optimize efficiency, data about your interactions may be transmitted to our servers even when you're not actively using the application. Furthermore, we may collaborate with third parties that gather supplementary data – please refer to their privacy policies for comprehensive information.

We utilize Device-Identifiable Information (DII) to maintain the functionality of our Services and oversee user sessions. This includes tasks such as analyzing how our Services are used, safeguarding against malicious activities and fraud, enhancing content quality, facilitating a seamless online experience across various devices and browsers, and assisting third parties in delivering pertinent advertising and associated metrics. We share DII with third parties primarily for advertising and analytical purposes, for external processing, and to bolster security measures.

3. Account Details:

The information we gather through our Services serves several key purposes, including providing, maintaining, safeguarding, and enhancing our Services, as well as developing new services, and ensuring the security of both our platform and our users.

Personally Identifiable Information (PII) refers to data that can be employed to identify or reach you, whether online or offline. This includes information like your name, address, email address, phone number, photos, linked accounts, social media accounts, audio recordings, and payment details. The Services may collect PII when you provide it to us, such as when you use our Services, attempt to get in touch with us, submit a resume, volunteer or apply for a job, or connect with us through social media or one of our partners. For instance, you might come across a "Log in with..." button, indicating that we request PII from a partner to streamline the login process. In such cases, you'll typically encounter a "request for permission" screen from a third party, seeking your consent to share your ID, profile picture, and other specified information with us.

Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is predominantly employed for essential business functions, such as sending periodic newsletters and updates, facilitating the hiring process, responding to inquiries, enabling logins, and delivering Services. When you reach out to us, we may maintain a record of your communication, alongside other relevant information, to assist in resolving any issues you may encounter. We may also use your email address to keep you informed about our Services, including updates and improvements. Please note that sections like comment sections, forums, and similar areas within our Services are publicly accessible. Any information posted in these areas can be viewed and utilized by anyone with access.

We share PII with companies, external entities, and individuals for specific purposes, as detailed below:

With Your Consent: We will share PII with companies, external entities, or individuals if we have obtained your explicit consent to do so.

External Processing: PII may be provided to our affiliates or trusted businesses or individuals for the purpose of processing, following our instructions, and in accordance with our Privacy Policy and appropriate confidentiality and security measures.

Due to Legal Reasons: We will disclose PII to companies, external organizations, or individuals if we have a genuine belief that such access, use, preservation, or disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with applicable laws, regulations, legal processes, enforceable government requests, detect, prevent, or address fraud, security or technical issues, or protect the rights, property, or safety of our users or the public, as required or allowed by law.

For Business-Related Aggregations: We may share aggregated information and Device-Identifiable Information (DII) with our partners, such as businesses we have affiliations with, advertisers, or related websites. This may include sharing information to illustrate trends related to the general usage of our Services.

Our objective is to offer you a reasonable opportunity to access, update, and delete your Personally Identifiable Information (PII). However, in certain instances, we may need to retain this information for valid business or legal reasons. When you request updates to your information, we may require identity verification before proceeding with your request.

4. Behavior Recording:

4.1 Chat Reporting Tool

In order to ensure a safe environment for all users, our Services include a chat reporting tool that may record conversations when a report is filed. Please be assured that we prioritize your privacy, and the recording function remains inactive until a report is submitted.

4.2 Anti-Cheat and World Cloning

Within our games, we may initiate recordings of matches, including a few seconds before and after a report is submitted by a user. These recordings serve the purpose of improving our response to false reports and providing evidence for reported incidents. Additionally, we may record the in-game state, which may include information regarding your settlement or base in our game modes.

4.3 Logging

We may also collect logged information related to your device or client to assist us in maintaining a fair and secure environment for the enjoyment of all users. For more details regarding logged information, please refer to the Client Details section within this Policy.

Your Safety:

1. Store and Account security:

We are dedicated to safeguarding our users from unauthorized access, alterations, disclosures, or data destruction. We implement reasonable security measures that encompass confidentiality, integrity, and availability safeguards. However, it's important to note that no software or storage system is entirely infallible, and as a result, we cannot provide an absolute guarantee regarding the security of your information associated with our Services, or any other service, for that matter.

To enhance the security of your account information, consider the following steps:

Utilize Unique and Strong Passwords: Create passwords that are distinctive and challenging to guess. Avoid reusing the same password for your email address or other accounts.

Enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA): Enhance your account's security by activating Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) to add a second layer of protection for logging into your account.

Additionally, please be aware that our store primarily serves as a front-end visual representation of our products. The handling of transactions and sales is entrusted to third-party companies equipped with robust security measures. For further information on their policies, please refer to the Third-Parties section in this Policy.

2. Safety and Abuse:

At G C Network, we have a zero-tolerance policy for any form of abuse targeting an individual's mental well-being, beliefs, sexual orientation, and more. We are committed to taking all required measures, including account termination, to address instances of abuse, whether it involves a member of our staff or another user. We strongly encourage you to report any such incidents through our support desk at https://gcnetwork.net/support.

3. Shared Content:

The applications, services, and content we provide through our platforms and Services undergo rigorous checks to ensure they comply with copyright regulations, maintain high security and safety standards, and do not pose any harm. All our software is equipped with SSL and Code Sign Certificates to ensure security.

It's important to note that the G C Network staff will never initiate direct contact with you via private messages. Furthermore, we will never send you links, downloadable files, or content that is not hosted on our Services. If you choose to trust a file or link sent to you privately, please be aware that G C Network bears no responsibility for any harm that may result from such actions.

Other Policies:

1. Fair-Use

All the Services we provide are subject to a Fair-Use policy. This means that we reserve the right to decline further services if your actions violate the terms outlined in this Policy and our Terms of Service, or if we determine that your actions are contrary to our established Community or Server Rules and Guidelines.

2. Server uptime:

Given the scale and objectives of our project, the servers hosting our Services may undergo periodic restarts, shutdowns, or temporary unavailability. These measures are taken to clear system cache and prevent RAM leaks, which could occasionally lead to complications in the delivery of some of our services.

Please be assured that we take complete responsibility for any complications arising from server downtime. We will address such issues diligently and appropriately, assessing each case individually to ensure a suitable resolution.

3. Ban-Appeals:

We believe in giving individuals the opportunity to make amends, which is why we offer the option to appeal an account or IP ban. However, it's essential for applicants to understand that we retain the right to decline an appeal if we deem the actions unforgivable or unsuitable for reintegration into our Services. The ultimate decision regarding the lifting or continuation of a user or player ban rests with us.

Additionally, for account terminations or bans resulting from chargebacks, the option for reinstatement is available after payment of a fee, the amount of which may vary based on individual cases.

4. Third-Parties:

Although we aim to collaborate with trustworthy organizations that uphold strong privacy standards, please be aware that this policy does not extend to services provided by external companies or individuals. This includes any products or websites that you might encounter while using our services. Furthermore, we do not have authority over the privacy policies and settings of third-party websites, including social media platforms.
