This Privacy Policy is incorporated by reference into the Terms of Use (the “Terms”) for the Game Pass service and other services, applications and websites provided by us (the “Service”).  The terms “we,” and “us” include Team Chaos, LLC and each of our affiliates and subsidiaries.  The Privacy Policy explains how we:

  • collect,
  • use, and
  • disclose

information we obtain through the Service, but not through any other means.  Capitalized terms used in this Privacy Policy shall have the meaning set forth in this Privacy Policy or the Terms.

The “Service” means Game Pass and any websites or software applications offered by Team Chaos, but not any applications or websites offered by any third parties (“Third Party Publishers”) or their applications to which you have access through the Service.

Personal Information” means information that alone or when in combination with other information may be used to readily identify, contact, or locate you, such as: name, address, email address, or phone number.  We do not consider Personal Information to include information that has been anonymized so that it does not allow a third party to easily identify a specific individual.

The Service collects Personal Information:

  • when you register;

  • with your permission.

Remember that this Privacy Policy governs the use of any information collected about you on or through the Service even if a Privacy Policy of a Third Party Publisher for another website or application owned or operated by or on behalf of the Third Party Publisher has different policies for the collection and use of information about you.

We Use Vendors and Service Providers.  We may share any information we receive with vendors and service providers retained in connection with the provision of the Service.

As Required By Law and Similar Disclosures.  We may access, preserve, and disclose your Personal Information, other account information, and content if we believe doing so is required or appropriate to: comply with law enforcement requests and legal process, such as a court order or subpoena; respond to your requests; or protect yours’, ours’ or  others’ rights, property, or safety.
