User Responsibilities for Privacy
Each User is required to create a unique Login ID and secret Password to verify the User's identity when they access their account. Each User is solely responsible for the creation and maintenance of their Login ID and secret Password. Once a Login ID is created it cannot be changed. The User's secret password may be changed on the Settings page.
Each User is responsible to enter a Display Name, which is a nickname for the User's account.
Each User is NOT required to enter a real name or working email address.
To join a team in the Teams Network, each User must enter a real name so the team leader will know who the User is. A User's real name is shown only to the team leader; other team members see only the User's Display Name.
To create a team for other Users to join, a User must enter a real name, the team's name, and a working email address.
To be able to recover a lost account, a User must enter a working email address on the Settings page. If a User does not enter a working email address, the Company will make no effort to help recover any lost account regardless of any circumstances.
Each User may delete their account at any time on the Settings page. If a User deletes their account, their real name and email address will be removed from the Company's database.
Lexxica's Commitment to Security
Lexxica implements commercially reasonable safeguards to preserve the security of User's real names and email addresses. We do not willingly disclose real names or email addresses to any third parties without User permission, except as required by Japanese law. While we cannot ensure the security of personal information as it is being transmitted to Lexxica via the Internet, once we actually receive the transmission of personal information we make all commercially reasonable efforts to maintain the security and privacy of that data. This is not a guarantee that your personal information and progress data will not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by a security breach. If Lexxica learns of a serious security breach, we may post a message in the Services, and we may send you an email so you can take protective steps.
About the Teams Network
If you choose to join a team you must enter your real name so that your team leader will know which progress data belongs to you. Other team members will not see your real name; they will see your Display Name - the nickname you created for your account.
If you quit a team, your real name and progress data will no longer be shown to the team leader. If you delete your account, your real name and progress data will no longer be shown to any team leaders; it will be removed from our database.
If you choose to create a team for other people to join, you must enter your real name, a team name, and a working email address. All members of your team will be able to see your real name, and the team name, but no one will be able to see your email address. If you choose to have your team compete in events, the other participating teams will be able to see the other team names and the Display Names of participants.
User email addresses are kept private and are never willingly shared with other Users through the Teams Network.
