Unfortunately, however, no security system can be 100% secured, and we cannot guarantee that communications between you and Kabam, the Websites or Services, or any information provided to us in connection with the information we collect through the Websites or Services will be free from unauthorized access by third parties. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time. Your password is an important component of our security system. As such, it is your responsibility to protect it. Do not share your password with any third parties.

If you do not wish to receive Promotional Communications from us, you can opt-out by: (i) following the unsubscribe instructions provided in the Promotional Communication you receive; or (ii) managing your e-mail preferences by signing into your account on the Kabam.com site, clicking on the Settings link in the site header, navigating to the Preferences tab, and unchecking the email lists you no longer wish to subscribe to.

How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals

Because consumers are often unaware that their do-not-track beacons are active, do-not-track does not frequently reflect the actual preferences of our users.  Accordingly, Kabam does not respond to the federal Do-Not-Track signal.  If you would like to receive no promotional communication from Kabam, you are free to follow the procedure described in the previous section to unsubscribe.
