This account contains the following information:

  • Your chosen display name
  • Your owned patterns
  • Your owned and equipped cosmetics
  • Your history of purchases within the game
  • Amount of currency you own
  • Your challenge progress

For your own safety, do not disclose any personal information to anyone while using Services. Trass Games developers will never ask for any personal information.

3. Children

“Children” are any person under the age of 13 in the United States or the legal age of majority in your country of residence (you are responsible for knowing the age requirement in your country of residence). 

“Yeeps: Hide and Seek” is not designed for Children under the age of 13. Trass Games does not intentionally or knowingly collect, use, store, disclose, or otherwise process any personal information about Children. If we are notified that Children are playing, their account will be banned.

If a child is between 10 and 12 years old (or the applicable age in your region), then they MUST HAVE a Meta account for Meta Quest that is set up and managed by a parent or guardian (Parent Managed Account), which includes a parent or guardian approving app download requests. When a child wants to download a new app, they will need to select Send request on the app’s page. This sends their parent or guardian a request to review.

If you are over the age of 13 but under the age of 18 (“Ward”) or the legal age of majority where you reside if that jurisdiction has an older age of majority, then you agree to review these terms and conditions with your parent or guardian. Make sure you both understand and agree to these terms and conditions. If you are a parent or guardian and agree to these terms, you accept full responsibility for your Ward’s use of the Game or Services provided by Trass Games, including any financial charges and legal liabilities that your Ward may incur. 

If you have any concerns about Children or need their information removed, please email us at Support@trassgames.com.
