Hyper is the gamer’s paradise

Hyper is a mobile gaming application that hosts fun casual games with an enhanced gaming experience via its social and community gaming features, as well as value-generating opportunities via its own native in-game currency, HPR, which has real money equivalence.

Hyper is built for true lovers of the game who would be further encouraged by its earning opportunities, social elements, and community engagement. Gamers can play against other gamers, complete streaks, and challenges, and compete for leaderboard ranks and tournaments.

In addition to having fun and socializing with other gamers, gamers also earn HPRs which can be used in a variety of ways. HPR can be used to purchase and enter player versus player battles, tournaments with bigger prize pools, and can be withdrawn into stable cryptocurrency within the app's internal wallet which can then be cashed out for real-world fiat currency.

We allow users to add content to the Services in a number of different ways, and in smaller and larger communities. Some of these are public, and if you share content within them, that content may be accessed by many people, including people you do not know.

We may also use content posted in public spaces to help power features and to help us identify harmful content on the Services. These features are important to us, and we believe they will make Hyper even better for our users. We will always try to let you know what spaces are public within Hyper.

Data retention

We retain personal information for as long as it is needed for the purposes for which we collected it.

We take the security of the Personal Data we collect very seriously and we take reasonable measures to reduce the risk of accidental destruction, loss or unauthorised access to such information. All information sent within our Services is encrypted both in transit and at rest. We also enforce technical and administrative access controls to limit which of our employees and contractors have access to nonpublic personal information.

However, please note that no system involving the transmission of information via electronic storage systems or the internet is completely secure. You can help maintain the security of your account by configuring two-factor authentication.

Data security

We will take reasonable steps to protect personal information disclosed to us from misuse, loss, unauthorized access, modification and/or disclosure. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. The Hyper App is built with strong security features that continuously protects your Personal Data. Our security features help us detect and block security threats. If we detect any security risk, we may inform you and guide you through steps to stay protected.

Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our applications or website over the internet and any such transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access. We are bound by international standards and best practices on information and cyber security as may be issued from time to time.

How to control your privacy

We believe that users should be able to tailor their Hyper experience to their preferences, including privacy. And while local laws may require different things, we believe that our users should have the same basic ability to shape their experience no matter where they are in the world. Here's how you can control how we process your information and how to request access to your information:

  • Be aware of the games you choose to participate in

    You can always choose what games you decide to play and how to engage with the communities within the App. You can choose what messages to send or post, who to engage with (e.g., one or more particular users or a potentially unlimited group of users), what information to include in your profile, whether to connect any Third Party services to your Hyper account, and more.

  • Customize your personal Hyper settings

    We offer a number of settings that allow you to tailor your experience within Hyper. Some of these relate to specific features: for example, you can choose whether to turn on or off game sounds in the account settings.

    You can also access privacy-specific settings in the Privacy & Safety section of your User Settings. This is also where you can restrict certain types of processing of your information:

    • Restrict our ability to use your data to improve our products. If you turn off the "Use data to improve Hyper" setting, we will stop collecting and using certain event and log information to help us understand how users use our Services, what features or products they may want, or to otherwise improve our Services.
    • Restrict our ability to personalize Hyper for you. If the "Use data to customize my Hyper experience" setting is disabled, we will stop collecting and using certain event and log information to help us offer you relevant recommendations for in-app content and features.

    You can also disable or delete your account via the "My Account" tab on the settings page. Disabling your account stops the processing of new data, but allows you to reactivate your account without interruption to you. Deleting your account permanently deletes identifying information and anonymizes other data.

  • Manage your content and clubs

    You may edit or erase specific pieces of information within the Services:

    • You can edit or delete any message you have sent or content you have posted if you still have access to the space where you posted it.
    • You can edit or delete an uploaded avatar.

    Public posts may be retained by Hyper for use as described elsewhere in this policy. Also, in very limited circumstances, we may have a legal obligation to retain certain information, even if you delete the information or your account.

Manage cookies

To control how information is collected and used from cookies on the Services, you can take one or more of the following steps.

  • You can disable and manage some cookies through your browser settings. You will need to manage your settings for each browser you use. You can find instructions for how to manage Cookies in popular browsers such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari (iOS), Safari (Mac), and Opera.
  • To disable analytics cookies, you can use the browser controls discussed above or, for certain providers, you can use their individual opt-out mechanisms, such as Google Analytics Opt-Out.

  • Depending on where you are accessing our Services, you may be able to adjust your cookie preferences at any time through a cookies banner or by selecting "Cookie Settings" from the footer or menu on our website.

If you disable or remove cookies, some parts of the Services may not function properly. Information may be collected to remember your opt-out preferences.
