OpozO and OpozO Games are committed to producing games that will be enjoyed by everyone. We will present our website to be an interesting, stimulating, and enjoyable experience for children, as well as adults.
You have a choice about whether or not you wish to receive information from us. If you do not want to receive direct marketing communications from us about our latest games, components, products, services competitions and promotions then you can choose not too by leaving the tick box un-checked on the form on which we collect your information.
We will not contact you for marketing purposes by email, phone or text message unless you have given your prior consent. You can change your marketing preferences at any time by contacting us by email.
OpozO adheres to the following general principles when processing personal data:
• We will only collect personal data for specific and specified purposes.
• We will not collect personal data beyond what is necessary to accomplish those purposes.
• We will use personal data only for the stated purpose, except as stated below, or with prior consent
• We will not transfer personal data to third parties except as stated below, or with prior consent.
• We will seek to verify and/or update personal data periodically.
• We will honor requests for amendments and changes to personal data.
• We will not store personal data in identifiable form longer than is necessary to accomplish its purpose or as required by law, except as stated below.
• We will on receipt of a verified request by you to delete your information from our databases
We understand many visitors to our websites will be children. OpozO is committed to protecting individuals’ personal data online and adheres to the Children’s Advertising Review Unit (CARU) and Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (called COPPA) guidelines in addition to the EU General Data Protection Regulation. We encourage parents to discuss this policy with your children so that they will understand how to use the website and the information they may be asked to provide. OpozO believes that providing you and your child with information about our website and how we use personal information will help you better protect you and your child’s privacy. OpozO does not want to collect any information that you, as a parent, are uncomfortable having your child submit to us.
Our Safety Guidelines strictly prohibit the posting of information that could personally identify a child, such as their photo, real name, email address, phone number or physical location, unless the parent explicitly agrees to allow such, perhaps about becoming a contest winner. We also aim to prevent children from being exposed to web content that might make them feel anxious or frightened, so we rigorously regulate links to outside websites.
From time to time, we may undertake or commission consumer and educational research projects, and we may share personal data with third-party research establishments and organisations for this purpose. Also, such third-party research companies may host survey data in their databases on our behalf. All data transfers for this purpose will be subject to a written agreement between us and the third-party in question who will not be provided any authority to use such personal data for any purpose other than as instructed by us.
We collect information in two ways: (1) Information you provide to us, and (2) Information we collect automatically.
1. Information You Provide
Subject to the facility being available on our websites, information we may collect when you use our website might be when you:
o create a profile;
o make a purchase;
o participate in contests, events or promotions;
o send questions or comments via email, or live chat with an OpozO Consumer Relations representative;
o submit your resume to us online;
o complete online surveys; or
o otherwise communicate with us through the website.
The types of personal information that you provide may include your name, email address, telephone number, postal address, credit card information, birth date, and other contact or identifying information that you choose to provide. We may also collect your gender and game preferences when you provide this information at the same time as your name or other contact or identifying information, or we may combine these data points with your personal information in the future.
If you are under the age of 13, only your parent or legal guardian can provide any personal information to us for purposes of registration, and other online activities. See Personal Information Collected from Children under 13 Years Old below for more information.
Information We Collect Automatically
When you access or use opozo.net, we may automatically collect information about you and what parts of our web site interested you most. For example, when you visit our website, we collect information about your computer’s operating system, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, access times, browser type, versions and language, time zone setting, products you viewed or searched for, page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as clicks), information about the website visit [including the full Uniform Resource Locators (URL) clickstream to, through and from our site (including date and time)], and the URL of the website you visited before navigating to our website (only if you were referred by that site).
If you access our website via a mobile device, we may also collect your unique device ID, device make and model, device IP address, mobile carrier, mobile web browser type and version and the location of your device.
To collect this information, we use the technologies identified below:
Cookies are small data files stored on your computer or mobile device by a website. Among other things, cookies help website providers improve their Services and your experience while using their websites.
Your computer retains the cookie, but only relating to information you entered to purchase from opozo.net. For instance, if you added some products to your shopping cart and did not complete the purchase, the selected products will still be on your computer (not ours) the next time you next visit our website. Or, if in response to our initial pop-up notification, you opt to stay on opozo.net, instead of being redirected to another OpozO owned and operated website, the opozo.net website will set a cookie to be stored on your computer for a period of 30 days from the date we receive your response to this pop-up notification. This cookie prevents clutter on your screen by disabling this same pop-up notification from automatically reappearing on your screen every time you visit a page on opozo.net, during this 30-day period.
If you want to know if cookies have been added to your computer by others – check your settings. Browsers allow you to either accept cookies or refuse them. Refusing cookies may limit a website provider’s ability to provide you improved features and online experiences. You can adjust your browser to tell you when a website tries to put a cookie on your computer. For more information on cookies and how to control or disable them, you may want to visit www.aboutcookies.org
Clear GIFs, sometimes called “pixels,” “web bugs” or “web beacons,” are small electronic images that are placed on a web page or in an email message. OpozO may use pixels or clear GIFs to monitor user behavior, deliver cookies, collect information, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness and to tell if a recipient has opened and acted upon an email. OpozO uses pixels, or transparent GIF files, to help manage online advertising. These GIF files are provided by our ad management partner, Google Analytics™. These files enable Google Analytics™ to recognize a unique cookie on your Web browser, which in turn enables us to learn which advertisements bring users to our website.
With both cookies and Spotlight technology (used by Google), the information we collect, and share is anonymous, and not personally identifiable. It does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or email address. For more information about Google Analytics™, including information about how to opt out of these technologies, go to www.google.com/analytics .
We use analytics services and software provided by third parties to help us understand how users access and use opozo.net. These tools and services may place cookies, web beacons and other devices or technologies on websites to enable them to track traffic data. The data collected typically includes information such as your IP address, your Internet Service Provider, your web browser, the time spent on webpages, the links clicked, and the advertisements viewed on those pages. We use this information to improve our website and your experience, to see which areas and features of our website are popular and to count visits.
Log files record website activity on our website and enable us to gather statistics about our users’ browsing habits. These entries help OpozO determine (among other things) how many and how often users have accessed or used our website, which pages of our website they’ve visited, and similar data. We may associate the information we collect from these technologies with other personal information that you provide for the purposes described in this Policy.
Where your information is held and how long do we keep it?
Our website is hosted on secure cloud-based servers located within the EU.
The contact form which includes your name, email address and marketing preferences is held in an encrypted database at a secure location within the EU.
It is our policy to keep data back-ups for a maximum of 6 months after the end of any marketing campaign in case of any sort of accidental deletion.
Unless you have specifically requested to join our marketing mailing list, your personally identifiable information will be deleted at the end of the marketing campaign period.
Information We Collect from Third Parties
We may also obtain information from other sources and combine that with information we collect through our website. For example, if you create or log into your OpozO Account through a third-party social networking site, we will have access to certain information from that site, such as your name and any other account information disclosed in accordance with the policies of that third-party social networking site.
We may also work closely with third parties including, for example, business partners, sub-contractors in technical services, advertising networks, analytics providers and search information providers, and may receive information about you from them which will be subject to the consents you have provided directly to them.
We do not allow third parties to place ads on opozo.net.
We may sometimes engage third parties to place ads for our products and services on other websites, as well as placing ads ourselves. These third parties may place cookies, web beacons and other devices or technologies within the ads. When you click or scroll over any of these ads, these third parties may collect information about your use of opozo.net. The data collected typically includes information such as your IP address, your web browser, web pages viewed, time spent on pages, links clicked and whether you purchased an advertised product. Third parties may use this information to deliver advertising and/or content targeted to your interests.

You, or your child, can terminate these email updates by using the unsubscribe procedure described below.
COPPA prohibits us, and any other company, from conditioning your child’s participation in any activity on our website in exchange for the disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in that activity. We agree with, and adhere to, this rule.

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. When we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure.

Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.

Opozo.net may offer social sharing features and other integrated tools (such as the Facebook® “Like” button or widgets), which let you share actions you take on our website or social media pages with other media, and vice versa. The use of such features may enable the sharing of information with your friends or the public, depending on the settings you establish with the third party that provides these features. These features may also collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our website, and may set a cookie to enable the features to function properly.
For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and processing in connection with social sharing features, please visit the privacy policies of the third parties that provide these features.
Linking to Third-Party Sites
To provide relevant information not found on opozo.net, facilitate online shopping, and allow you to interact with other websites and/or applications in which you may have accounts (such as Facebook® and other social media sites), OpozO may provide links or embed third-party applications that allow login from our website to third-party websites.

How to Unsubscribe from opozo.net Email Messages
We may occasionally conduct surveys, contests or other marketing programs for which we may ask for age, gender and other information. You have the right to delete all this personal information from our records at any time.
You can do this by emailing email@example.com
Once we have received and processed your request, you will receive an email notifying you that all your and your child’s information has been deleted from our database.
If you have further comments, questions or concerns about data we hold on you or your child’s personal information in our email database, or any other concerns, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will look to address your requests as soon as we are able.
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes.

You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data.
If your child has emailed us about a problem with OpozO product, or has a question regarding OpozO Games or Components, the company, or its people, etc., we may categorize and collect that information in generic anonymised categories, so that we can correct problems with the product or instructions, or address concerns, on opozo.net’s FAQs webpage. We keep this kind of information only in a generic and aggregated form.
We will use any personal information you or your child provides as set out above and in the following circumstances:
• If we need to respond to an email inquiry.
• If your child has entered an OpozO online contest and won, we will need an actual address to send the prize; notification will be sent to the parent’s or legal guardian’s email address.
• We may share identified and identifiable information (such as names and email addresses) of those over the age of 18 who have entered an OpozO website contest, etc., and who have specifically opted in to the sharing of that specific information.
Unless as set out above, we never sell or distribute information gathered to anyone, nor do we make our mailing lists available to anyone. We might, however, use this information in conjunction with a marketing partner, where we control when and how we use the information. Any information used in this specific manner will be in the categorized and generic format, and will not disclose individual names, email addresses, etc.
It is important for you to ensure your child knows it is inappropriate to send any personal information to anyone, including OpozO, unless you are fully aware, and they have obtained your explicit approval.
Secure Online Purchasing from OpozO
Only those 18 years or older can make an online purchase from OpozO.
The online form requires the purchaser’s full name, billing and shipping addresses, telephone number, email address and credit card information in order to complete the order.
We accept only valid debit or credit cards in the name of the purchaser as set out on our purchasing system. We submit this information to the payment card company for verification. All payment card information is used only to process and ship the order and is not retained online after the order has been submitted.
The shipping and order addresses and names, telephone numbers, email addresses, and items ordered are kept in a secure off-line database for documentation and reference purposes and to support our customer services in dealing with after post purchase enquiries you may contact us about. Please read the information we display to you prior to your making a purchase.
OpozO requires all online orders are submitted by adults 18 years or older. Any customer younger than 18 years old who wishes to submit an order must have the order submitted by a parent or legal guardian. These orders are the responsibility of the parent(s) or guardian(s) who own the valid payment card used in the transaction.
If you have any questions regarding a purchase, please see our Ordering and Shipping Policies section on this page or contact us at email@example.com.
OpozO ONLY accepts photos of games constructions and other outputs generated from OpozO components for contests, promotions and posting to our Photo Gallery. We do not solicit or accept ideas for new products or suggested new game themes, challenges or components.
The reason is not that we believe only we can come up with new and exciting ideas for OpozO Games, that is clearly counterintuitive to how the OpozO Modular System is meant to deliver value to our customers. Rather, it has to do with conflicts that arise as to the derivation of OpozO ideas.
From time to time, we may have people claim to have invented just about everything we do, including having come up with OpozO before we did, or they may claim that they submitted a concept that was the “inspiration” for something we’ve later marketed. None of these claims we have any basis to be even remotely true, yet despite this we maybe faced with the aggravation and time that is required to deal with the claims.
Therefore, to prevent possible misunderstandings about who owns the rights to the OpozO Modular System and the various components and products generated from our modular system that we sell, anything you send to us will be considered by us as non-confidential and nonproprietary, meaning that you recognise and agree that you are freely giving us the right to use it any way we wish. This may include making and selling products based upon such material, licensing the material to others or posting your ideas/photos on our website and owning the intellectual property rights in and to such ideas.
If you wish to send any photographs or other materials to OpozO, you MUST follow these simple instructions:
• You should only send materials to us where we direct you to submit materials to us which will include how and where to submit materials to us. If you submit materials to us other than as directed, we will not accept these submissions.
• If you are a child, discuss this with your parents. They will need to fully read, understand what we’ve said above, and complete and sign a Permission Form where we have directed you to submit materials to us.
• Photos, pictures or other materials sent to us without a parent’s or legal guardian’s signature will not be accepted even if sent to the appropriate submission address we may provide.
• If you still want to send us pictures, etc., click here for the Permission Form. You will be required to show this Permission Form to your parents.
• Send the Permission Form, fully completed and signed by a parent or legal guardian, and the picture, to:

You can always contact us to review and update personal information we may have stored about you and/or your child. Please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that before making changes to your information or any account you may hold with us, we must verify your identity properly.
