6. Passing your personal information to third parties

TWe may supply your Personally Identifiable Information to external third parties who provide a service to us (such as fulfilment of orders placed for Askbahrain Product merchandise or to assist us in the supply of customer support) and purely for the purpose of that service.

We partner with a number of external payment service provider companies to enable you to make payment via a wide range of payment options. We share your billing information with such companies insofar as is necessary for the processing of your payment or to prevent or detect fraud. These companies have agreed not to retain, share, store or use your Personally Identifiable Information which we pass to them for any secondary purposes.

Your personal information may be transferred to, stored and processed in countries outside your country of residence both in and outside China, and used for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy.

You should be aware that the data protection laws of other countries may not be the same as the data protection laws of your country of residence. By submitting your personal information to Askbahrain, you agree to the transfer, storage and processing of your personal information as described in this section.

Please note that this privacy policy does not apply to any of your Personally Identifiable Information which is collected by the external payment provider companies themselves or to the websites or services of other companies to which we link or which link to us, or which provide goods or services to our users from their websites (such as affiliate sites or other sites selling Askbahrain Product merchandise). Please note that those companies (and not Askbahrain) are responsible for the information which they collect. Please check their privacy polices where appropriate.

We use external companies to provide and serve advertisements or other technologies on the AskbahrainProducts (eg to collect website statistics or to enable sharing of buttons or widgets). These companies may use information (not including Personally Identifiable Information) about your visits to this and other websites in order to personalize advertisements on this site or other sites and/or to personalize certain features on our site and/or to provide anonymized aggregated statistics concerning use of our site or use of certain features on our site which are shared with other sites (eg buttons or widgets linking to our site). We do not have access to or control over cookies or other technologies that these third parties may use and the information practices of these advertisers and technology companies are not covered by this policy.

Furthermore, information collected from our users by third parties providing goods or services (including advertisements) at or via the AskbahrainProducts may be shared by those third parties with us and stored by us for the purposes stated in this policy.

Be very careful before making or posting any communications whilst using Askbahrain Products. Certain information is visible to other players of the game including: public and private chat communications, the status of your characters and which alliance you belong to. We may share Game Data with third parties, such as survey and data analysis companies, to help improve the products and services we offer to our players and improve the player experience. “”Game Data”” includes, but is not limited to, communications posted on AskbahrainProducts and player communications. Game Data may contain Personally Identifiable Information.

If you have agreed on our websites, we may provide your email address to our business partners so that they can send you emails with details of goods or services which may be of interest to you including information about special offers or promotions.

7. Safeguarding your Personally Identifiable Information

We will only collect Personally Identifiable Information to the extent we believe it reasonably necessary to serve our legitimate business purposes, and will protect it using the same level of safeguards we use to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of our own equivalent proprietary information. In addition, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that third parties to whom we transfer any Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with this policy will agree to provide sufficient protection.

Note that while we strive to protect all our Personally Identifiable Information, we have all heard of data breaches in well-respected financial and governmental institutions and we cannot ever fully guarantee that such breaches will not happen. We will inform you of any material data breaches that we discover that may compromise your Personally Identifiable Information.
