COFA GAMES shares advertising identifiers with third-party advertising partners and may allow third-party advertising partners displaying advertisements on COFA GAMES's web sites and other online platforms to collect PII about individual users' online activities over time and across different web sites or online services.
You may seek confirmation regarding whether COFA GAMES is Processing Personal Information about you, request access to Personal Information, and ask that we correct, amend or delete that information where it is.
Although COFA GAMES makes good faith efforts to provide individuals with access to their Personal Information, there may be circumstances in which COFA GAMES is unable to provide access, including but not limited to: where the information contains legal privilege, would compromise others' privacy or other legitimate rights, where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the individual's privacy in the case in question or where it is commercially proprietary. If COFA GAMES determines that access should be restricted in any particular instance, we will endeavor to provide you with an explanation of why that determination has been made within any required time frames (approximately one month), a contact point for any further inquiries and any other legally required information. To protect your privacy, COFA GAMES will take commercially reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access to or making any changes to your Personal Information.
The security of all Personal Information provided to COFA GAMES is important to us and therefore we take reasonable administrative, physical and electronic measures to protect the Personal Information that you decide to provide to us from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Unfortunately, however, no security system can be 100% secure, and we cannot guarantee that communications between you and COFA GAMES or our Products, or any information provided to us in connection with the information we collect through our Products is completely secure. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of any information.
