Privacy Policy

We take your privacy rights very seriously. Amuse and our subsidiaries and affiliates (“Amuse”) collect and process some personal information about you and we want to take some time to tell you about it.

However, if we do transfer your information, we will make sure that we protect your personal data in accordance with the GDPR requirements and set up contracts with those parties to ensure this.

We do not let children under the age of 18 to register with our Services and therefore, we do not knowingly collect personal information from children.

7. How We Protect Your information

Your security is important to us. We always do our best to maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards to help protect your personal information from loss, misuse, unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration or disclosure.
