This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) describes the policies of SINN STUDIO INC., a corporation under the provincial laws of Ontario (“Sinn Studio,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information and non-personal information while using and interacting with our website (“Website”) the game SWORDSMAN VR (“Game”), or our Discord channel (collectively known as the “Services”).

We value your privacy and are committed to protecting your personal information. Please read this Policy carefully to understand our practices regarding your privacy. Please note that this Policy may be updated from time to time. If such updates are made, we will notify you through a notice on our Website home page ( You are responsible for periodically visiting our Website and this Policy to check for any changes or updates.

This Policy describes:

● The types of information we may collect or that Services or Game users (“you”) may provide when using and interacting with our Services.

● Our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, and protecting that information.

We will only use your personal information in accordance with this Policy unless otherwise required by applicable law. We take steps to ensure that the personal information that we collect about you is adequate, relevant, not excessive, and used for limited purposes.

We have developed our Policy in compliance with the Canadian Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) and the Substantially Similar Provincial Privacy Laws including Alberta’s Personal Information Protection Act (Alberta PIPA), British Columbia’s Personal Information Protection Act (BC PIPA), and Quebec’s Act Respecting the Protection of Personal Information in the Private Sector (Quebec Act).

Privacy laws in Canada generally define "personal information" as any information about an identifiable individual, which includes information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person.

This Policy is also compliant with the European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We want to ensure that you can make informed decisions about any data that we may collect from you.

The GDPR defines "personal data" as any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person; an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly, or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person. The terms personal information and personal data maybe used interchangeably throughout this Policy.

This Policy DOES NOT apply to information that:

● We collect offline.

● Through websites you may access through the Services or Game including third-party websites or platforms such as those hosted and provided by Steam, PlayStation, Meta, Microsoft, Discord, etc.

● Device Information (e.g., device model, operating system version)

● In-game Preferences

Additionally, we will be releasing a new feature in Swordsman VR that will allow us to improve our AI systems. This will involve collecting anonymized data that are grouped into data sets as random strings of numbers and characters that cannot be linked or traced to any particular individual. This will allow us to determine how users are striking and interacting with AI opponents so that we can design better and more challenging AI opponents, improving the overall quality and experience of gameplay for users. We note that this information is strictly anonymized and does not identify or reveal to us the identity of any user.

We do not collect or otherwise process any personal information or data (whether yours or that of any other person) solely from your use of the Services or Game.
