There are certain circumstances in which we share information collected through the Services with third parties, as set forth below. We do not share your data with non-affiliated third parties except as permitted by law.

We take information security seriously, and have implemented reasonable measures to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Unfortunately, no method of transmission over the internet or method of electronic storage is completely secure, and to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, we do not accept liability for any unauthorized disclosure.

Our Services are not designed for use by individuals under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, please do not use the Services and/or submit any information through the Services. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 18 has provided personal information to Rightfoot through the Services, please contact us, and we will delete that information from our databases to the extent required by law.
We retain your information for as long as necessary for the purpose for which that information was collected and for our legitimate business operations; provided, however, that your information is only retained to the extent permitted or required by applicable laws. When we no longer need to retain your information, we will take reasonable steps to remove it from our systems and records and/or take steps to anonymize it so that you can no longer be identified from it in accordance with our internal document retention policies.
When determining the retention period for your information, we take into account various criteria, such as the type of Services requested by or provided to you, the nature and length of our relationship with you, possible re-enrolment with our Services, the impact on the Services that we provide to you if we delete some information about you, and mandatory retention periods provided by law.

Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that players can set in certain web browsers.
