In addition, we may share your Personal Information with Service Providers that perform activities on behalf of Nix Hydra. We may also share Personal Information with your consent or as otherwise disclosed at the time of data collection or sharing.
As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy products, subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets.

By providing your Personal Information, you consent to such transfer and storage of Personal Information in the United States (or any other country where such Personal Information may be stored).

How We Use Web Beacons
We, or our Service Providers, may use web beacons on our Site, in our e-mails, in our advertisements on other websites, or in our advertisements in others’ e-mails. A web beacon is an electronic image that can be used to recognize a cookie on your device when you view a web page or e-mail. Web beacons help us measure the effectiveness of our Site and our advertising in various ways, for example, by counting the number of individuals who visit our Site from a particular advertisement or make a purchase from our Site after viewing a particular advertisement as well as by telling us when a web page is viewed and providing a description of the page where the web beacon is placed. Web beacons also help us measure the effectiveness of our e-mail campaigns, for example, by counting the number of individuals who open or act upon an e-mail message, determining when an e-mail message is opened and determining how many times an e-mail message is forwarded.
The information we collect may include some limited Personal Information, and web beacons allow us to recognize users by accessing Nix Hydra cookies. We may also combine the information that we collect through web beacons with other Personal Information we have collected from you.
We may collect or allow third parties to collect individual information or aggregated statistics using web beacons for analytics purposes, such as by allowing such third parties to develop statistics on how often clicking on an advertisement results in a purchase or other action. Aggregate information is anonymous and may include demographic and usage information. Visit the “Digital Advertising & Analytics” section of this Privacy Statement to learn more about the use of this information and the choices available to you.
You can make some – but not all – web beacons unusable by rejecting cookies.
Third-Party Links and Social Networking
Please be aware that other websites or mobile apps offered by third parties that may be accessed through our Site or the Games may collect Personal Information about you. The information practices of those third-party websites or third-party mobile apps linked to or from the Site or the Games are not covered by this Privacy Statement. We recommend that you review the privacy statements of other entities with which you interact.
The Site and Games may also include integrated social media tools or “plug-ins”, such as social networking tools offered by third parties. If you use these tools to share Personal Information or you otherwise interact with social media features on the Site or Games, those social media companies may collect information about you and may use and share such information in accordance with your account settings, including by sharing such information with the general public. Your interactions with third-party social media companies and the use of their features are governed by the privacy policies of the social media companies that provide those features. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy policies of any social media accounts you create and use.
Digital Advertising & Analytics
We may partner with third-party ad networks and other ad-serving providers (“Advertising Providers”) that serve ads on our behalf and others’ on non-affiliated platforms. Some of those ads may be personalized, meaning that they are intended to be relevant to you based on information Advertising Providers collect about your use of the Site and the Games and other sites or apps over time, including information about relationships among different browsers and devices. This type of advertising is known as interest-based advertising.
Nix Hydra adheres to the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Principles in connection with this interest-based advertising activity. You can visit www.aboutads.info or www.youradchoices.com/AppChoices to learn more about interest-based advertising and how to opt out of this advertising by companies participating in the DAA self-regulatory program. If you delete your cookies, reset your device advertising identifier, or use a different browser or mobile device, you will need to renew your opt-out choice. You may also be able to limit data collection for advertising purposes using tools available on your device. Note that electing to opt out will not stop advertising from appearing in your browser. It may make the ads you see less relevant to your interests. Even if you opt out, Advertising Providers may continue to collect data for other purposes, including analytics and other operational purposes.
Advertising Providers may also collect and use information through our apps about the precise location of your mobile device, in order to provide ads that are more relevant to you. If you do not want Advertising Providers to collect information through our apps about your device’s precise location, you can turn off location services on your device.
We may also work with third parties that collect data about your use of the Site and the Games and other sites or apps over time for non-advertising purposes. Nix Hydra uses third-party services to improve the performance of the Site and the Games and for analytics and marketing purposes.
To opt out of our e-mail marketing, you can use the link provided at the bottom of each marketing message.
