We have designed the OZONE METAVERSE to give you control over your information: you are able to join and participate in the OZONE METAVERSE with just your name, password and email address. Anything else is up to you: you can choose which functionality you use and therefore how much information you give Us at any time:
✍If you use Our stock avatars, this is not associated with your OZONE METAVERSE account. You do not need to choose a custom avatar, but if you do, this will be associated with your registered OZONE METAVERSE account.
✍You do not need to use your microphone and camera when enjoying and experiencing OZONE METAVERSE, however, if you choose to use them, we receive the video/audio streams and relay them to other users of the OZONE METAVERSE, through our partner. We do not store these video/audio streams. Please note that once you grant permission to use your microphone, it will stay on unless you turn it off.
✍If you are a paid user, you may choose to use the recording service. If you choose this service, moments of your experience of OZONE METAVERSE may be recorded and stored in your account.
Virtual scenes, if public, may be accessible by anyone who is registered with OZONE METAVERSE and logged into the corresponding URL. OZONE METAVERSE receives data about the virtual objects and avatars in a virtual scene and shares that data with other participants in the scene to enhance their experience.
✍There is no requirement to buy or sell any other assets through the OZONE METAVERSE, but if you do so, this will be registered against your OZONE METAVERSE account and we will store a record that a transaction has taken place.
We have provided more detailed information below on how We use your personal data and divided it into the following sections.
