We may collect the following data of your profile from you in order to grant access to the Service: name, address/location, gender, date of birth, playing habits and hobbies, contact details such as email address, home page or username for other social networks or instant messaging networks, that you provide.


If the Service is used through your Facebook social networking page, we do not collect any Personal Information provided by Facebook, in accordance with Facebook Privacy Policy. However, at this time and in accordance with such a Policy, we access and keep for a maximum of 24 hours the following information: first name and “fan” status. When required we will update our Privacy Policy to reflect any change of Facebook Privacy Policy.

When you identify yourself on a Service, you may identify yourself through a social network account in which Cantina may receive additional information about your profile and your ID for that site.


We may offer you the opportunity to submit other information about yourself (such as gender, age, occupation, hobbies, interests, zip code, etc.), or we may be able to collect that information from social networking systems on which you have used Cantina Service (in accordance with the terms of use of those systems), which would then also be covered by this Privacy Policy.

When you use a Service through your social network page, or use a social network app on someone else’s page, we may record information regarding the use of the concerned Service and also other information that can be visible on your social network profile and page in accordance with the relevant terms of use of this page. As an example, we may record and display information such as your high scores, forum ranks and titles, forum online status, game session duration and the game challenges, wish lists, offer lists, that you wish to send to your profile page, or when you invite new members into your network or send messages through the Service.

Note: be advised that if you send messages or post material containing personal information on such a social network page, or post a topic to a publicly viewable page or accessible forum on Cantina Services, that information may be collected and used by others. You can terminate your account at any time which will remove your profile and other personal information from view. Cantina, however, may (but is not obligated to) keep information about you that is on its system following your termination. Please contact Cantina to terminate your account or for any other questions regarding your personal information.


This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by Cantina. In addition to our direct collection of information, our third party service vendors (such as payment & offer suppliers) who may provide payment services (trough micro-payments or ads) or CPA offers may collect or have others collect bank details, phone numbers or e-mail addresses from you. We do not control how these third parties use such information, but we do ask them to disclose how they use personal information provided to them. Some of these third parties may be intermediaries that act solely as links in the distribution chain, and do not store, retain, or use the information given to them. You should always review the policies of third party services and websites to make sure you are comfortable with the ways in which they use information you share with them. We do not guarantee that they will follow our rules.
