Traceberry DMCC Terms of Service
Last Updated: November 2018
Welcome to Traceberry DMCC game services, which are accessible via the Traceberry DMCC (“Traceberry”) mobile device application (the “App”). To make these Terms of Service (the “Terms”) easier to read, our video game services, the App, and our websites located at http://traceberry.net and http://traceberry.net (the “Site”) are collectively called the “Services.” Please read carefully these Terms, and our Privacy Policy, because they govern your use of our Services.
Agreement to Terms
By using our Services, you are agreeing to these Terms and our Privacy Policy. If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under the age of 13 (the “Parent”), you are agreeing to these Terms on behalf of yourself and your child(ren) who are authorized to use the Services pursuant to these Terms and in our Privacy Policy. If you don’t agree to these Terms and our Privacy Policy, do not use the Services.
Changes to Terms or Services
We may modify these Terms at any time. If we do so, we’ll let you know either by posting the modified Terms on the Site or App or through other communications. It’s important that you review the Terms whenever we modify them, because if you continue to use the Services after we have posted modified Terms on the Site or App, or otherwise communicate them to you, you are indicating to us that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If you don’t agree to be bound by the modified Terms, then you may not use the Services anymore. Because our Services evolve over time, we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Services at any time and without notice.
Please refer to our Privacy Policy for information on how we collect, use, and disclose information from our users.
Eligibility and Account Registration
If you want to use certain features of the Services, you will have to create an account with us (an “Account”). You can create an Account if you have a pre-existing account with Facebook, or such other pre-existing third-party accounts as we may choose to support in the future (notification of which will be provided by allowing selection of such pre-existing accounts on the relevant account-creation screen). We will create your Account by extracting from your Google, Traceberry, Facebook, or other pre-existing third-party account certain personal information (such as your email address) that your privacy settings on the applicable account permit us to access.
It’s important that you provide us with accurate, complete, and up-to-date information for your Account, and you agree to update such information as needed, to keep it accurate, complete, and up-to-date. If you don’t, we might have to suspend or terminate your Account. You agree that you won’t disclose your Account password to anyone and you’ll notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account. You’re responsible for all activities that occur under your Account, whether or not you know about them.
Registration by Children

Parents of children under the age of 13 understand and agree that Traceberry may provide information submitted to Traceberry, or collected via the Services, to third parties who use such information for the sole purpose of administering or providing Services (e.g., third-party security monitoring services and web-hosting companies).
