Our Privacy values
Mega Cat Studios reserves the right to ban any users from accessing, playing, or using its Products, including its games, for violating these Terms, for violating its Harassment Policy or Acceptable Use Policy, for cheating, and for any reason not aligned with our company goals. Cheating includes temporarily altering code or injecting code in your browser using your browser’s console in order to manipulate or attempt to manipulate game data as well as creating fake accounts on Facebook. These actions are not only a violation of our terms, but a violation of the terms of our 3rd Party Providers and will get you banned.

By accepting your submission, Mega Cat Studios does not waive any rights to use similar or related Feedback previously known to Mega Cat Studios, or developed by its employees, or obtained from sources other than you.
Mega Cat Studios respects the intellectual property of others and asks that users of our Products do the same. In connection with our Products, we have adopted and implemented a policy respecting copyright law that provides for the removal of any infringing materials and for the termination, in appropriate circumstances, of users of our online Products who are repeat infringers of intellectual property rights, including copyrights. If you believe that one of our users is, through the use of our Products, unlawfully infringing the copyright(s) in a work, and wish to have the allegedly infringing material removed, the following information in the form of a written notification (pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)) must be provided to our designated Copyright Agent: (1) your physical or electronic signature; (2) identification of the copyrighted work(s) that you claim to have been infringed; (3) identification of the material on our services that you claim is infringing and that you request us to remove; (4) sufficient information to permit us to locate such material; (5) your address, telephone number, and e-mail address; (6) a statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the objectionable material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or under the law; and (7) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are either the owner of the copyright that has allegedly been infringed or that you are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner. Our designated Copyright Agent can be reached at email@example.com.
Virtual Goods and Money
Our games may include virtual consumable virtual goods such as crystals, poofs, lives, amulets or other items or services for use with our Games (“Virtual Goods”). Some Virtual Goods can be exchanged in the game of other Virtual Goods as virtual currency (“Virtual Currency”) If you are over 18 years old you may be able to buy Virtual Goods or Virtual Currency. You agree that once purchased Virtual Goods and Virtual Currency have no monetary value and can never be exchanged for real money, real goods or real services from us or anyone else. You also agree that you will only obtain Virtual Goods or Virtual Currency only from us, and not from any third party. You agree that Virtual Goods and Virtual Currency are not transferrable to anyone else and you will not transfer or attempt to transfer any Virtual Goods or Virtual Currency to anyone else. Virtual Currency is not currency. Virtual Currency has no cash value.
You do not own Virtual Goods or Virtual Currency but instead you purchase a limited personal revocable license to use them – any balance of Virtual Goods or Virtual Currency does not reflect any stored value.
You agree that sales by us to you of Virtual Goods or Virtual Currency are final and that we will not refund any transaction once it has been made. If you live in the European Union you have certain rights to withdraw from distance purchases; however, please note that when you purchase a license to use Virtual Goods or Virtual Currency from us, you acknowledge and agree that we will begin the provision of the Virtual Goods or Virtual Currency to you promptly once your purchase is complete and therefore your right of withdrawal is lost. For the purposes of this paragraph, a “purchase” is complete at the time our payment processors’ servers validate your purchase and the applicable Virtual Goods or Virtual Currency are successfully credited to your account on our servers.
If you live in the European Union, we will provide you with a VAT invoice only if we are required to do so by law or where requested by you. You agree that these invoices may be electronic in format.
We reserve the right to control, regulate, change or remove any Virtual Goods or Virtual Currency. We may revise the pricing for Virtual Goods or Virtual Currency offered through the Products at any time. We may limit the total amount of Virtual Goods or Virtual Currency that may be purchased at any one time, or limit the total amount of Virtual Goods or Virtual Currency that may be held in your account in the aggregate. You are only allowed to purchase Virtual Goods or Virtual Currency from us or our authorized partners through the Products, and not in any other way.
Depending on your platform, any Virtual Goods purchased will be purchased from your platform provider and such purchase will be subject to their respective terms of service and user agreement. Please check usage rights for each purchase as these may differ from item to item. Unless otherwise shown, content available in any in-game store has the same age rating as the game.
When you purchase items via our mobile apps (such as those you can purchase in the App Store, on Facebook or on Google Play) we do not collect or store any payment information from you.
If we suspend or terminate your account in accordance with these terms you will lose any Virtual Goods and Virtual Currency that you may have and we will not compensate you for this loss or make any refund to you.
We care about the security of our users. While we work to protect the security of your content and account, Mega Cat Studios cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not be able to defeat our security measures. Please notify us immediately of any compromise or unauthorized use of your account by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Security.” Please provide your User ID. Your User ID can be found in “Coffee Crisis,” “Bite the Bullet,” “Log Jammers,” “Little Medusa,” “Creepy Brawlers,” “Lethal Wedding,” “Old Towers,” and in “Phantom Gear” in the games’ Settings.

WE (AND OUR SUPPLIERS) MAKE NO WARRANTY THAT THE PRODUCTS WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, WILL BE AVAILABLE ON AN UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE BASIS, OR WILL BE ACCURATE, RELIABLE, FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL CODE, COMPLETE, LEGAL, OR SAFE.

Limitation on Liability.
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, MEGA CAT Studios SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, OR ANY LOSS OF PROFITS OR REVENUES, WHETHER INCURRED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, OR ANY LOSS OF DATA, USE, GOOD-WILL, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, RESULTING FROM (A) YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF OR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE THE PRODUCT; (B) ANY CONDUCT OR CONTENT OF ANY THIRD PARTY ON THE PRODUCTS, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY DEFAMATORY, OFFENSIVE OR ILLEGAL CONDUCT OF OTHER USERS OR THIRD PARTIES; OR (C) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, USE OR ALTERATION OF YOUR TRANSMISSIONS OR CONTENT.

For any dispute you have with Mega Cat Studios, you agree to first contact us and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally by reaching out to email@example.com. If Mega Cat Studios has not been able to resolve the dispute with you informally, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms by binding arbitration under the rules of Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”). Unless you and Mega Cat Studios agree otherwise, the arbitration will be conducted in Atlanta, Georgia. The arbitrator shall issue a written decision specifying the basis for the award made. The party filing a claim or counterclaim in the arbitration proceeding shall pay the deposit(s) determined by JAMS with respect to such claim or counterclaim. All other costs associated with the arbitration and imposed by JAMS shall be paid as determined by the arbitrator(s) and, in absence of such determination, equally by each party to the arbitration. In addition, unless the arbitrator awards payment of reasonable attorney and other fees to a party, each party to the arbitration shall be responsible for its own attorneys’ fees and other professional fees incurred in connection with the arbitration. Determinations of the arbitrator will be final and binding upon the parties to the arbitration, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction, or application may be made to such court for a judicial acceptance of the award and an order of enforcement, as the case may be. The arbitrator shall apply the substantive law of the State of Georgia, without giving effect to its conflict of laws rules..
All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, including but not limited to the award of the arbitrator and compliance therewith, shall be strictly confidential. The parties agree to maintain confidentiality unless otherwise required by law. This paragraph shall not prevent a party from submitting to a court of law any information necessary to enforce this Agreement, to enforce an arbitration award, or to seek injunctive or equitable relief.
ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND Mega Cat Studios ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the State of Georgia, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. We each agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a state court or the United States District Court located in Atlanta, Georgia for any actions not subject to Arbitration.
Our Products are controlled and operated from the United States, and we make no representations that they are appropriate for use in other locations. Additionally, we make no representations that they are available for use outside of the United States, except for in select territories where they have been made available to users on the platforms where our games are served.

No waiver of any term of these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Mega Cat Studios’ failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

If you submit a verifiable consumer request for Mega Cat Studios Inc to delete your personal information, we will ask you to confirm your request before deleting the information.
We may deny all or part of your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:
• Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated based on our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our agreement with you
• Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities

DO NOT SELL MY INFO
You may request that Mega Cat Studios Inc not sell your personal information. To do so, please submit a verifiable consumer request in any of the following ways:

HOW TO REQUEST TO KNOW YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION OR REQUEST DELETION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
To use the access and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request in any of the following ways:
• Go to our request webform at https://megacatstudios.com/pages/ccpa-form
Only you or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf (an authorized agent) may make a verifiable consumer request relating to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
HOW MEGA CAT STUDIOS INC WILL VERIFY A CONSUMER REQUEST
You may only make a verifiable consumer request twice within a 12-month period. Your verifiable consumer request must:
• Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or the authorized agent of that person, or you are the parent or guardian of a minor child about whom we have collected personal information, and that any authorized agent is authorized to make the request on your behalf; and
• Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
Mega Cat Studios Inc must be able to verify your identity, or if you are an authorized agent, your authority to make a request on behalf of a consumer, to be able to respond to your request or provide you with personal information. If you are the parent or guardian of a minor child for whom you wish to make a request, then you will be asked to certify as to that relationship.
Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request only to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.
To verify your identity, we will request information that is generally provided when interacting with us such as name, address, email address and/or information regarding previous purchases from us.
RESPONSE TO A VERIFIABLE CONSUMER REQUEST
Mega Cat Studios Inc’s policy is to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically. Any disclosures we provide will cover the 12-month period before Mega Cat Studios Inc’s receipt of your request.
If we are unable to comply with all or a part of your request, a notice will be sent to you that explains the reasons we cannot comply with a request.
For responses to requests to know your personal information, we will present your personal information in a way that is readily useable, and provide it using reasonable security measures.
We do not generally charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless the request is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. Pursuant to CCPA, if we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights.
• Denying you goods or services
• Charging you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties
• Providing you a different level or quality of goods or services
• Suggesting that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services
You may authorize a natural person or a business entity registered with the California Secretary of State to act on your behalf to make a request to know or to delete your personal information.
To do so, you must (i) verify your identity to Mega Cat Studios Inc and provide that authorized agent written permission to make such a request or (ii) provide the authorized agent with power of attorney pursuant to the California Probate Code sections 4000 to 4465.
The authorized agent must include those authorizations in the verifiable consumer request.
Minors Under Age 16
We do not and will not “sell” the personal information of consumers we know to be less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the "Right to Opt In") from either the minor who is between 13 and 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a minor less than 13 years of age.
California’s “Shine the Light” Law
In addition to the rights described above, California's "Shine the Light" law (Civil Code Section §1798.83) permits California residents that have an established business relationship with us to request certain information regarding our disclosure of certain types of personal information to third-parties for their direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year. To make such a request, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. This request may be made no more than once per calendar year. We reserve our right not to respond to requests submitted other than to the email address specified in this section.
