Krafton, the developers of PUBG Mobile, has announced Battlegrounds Mobile India. The game was previously teased to launch as PUBG Mobile India. However, the company has now officially announced it as Battlegrounds Mobile India. The game’s new logo was also unveiled earlier today on the company’s official website. It also revealed the new privacy policy and terms of service. Players under 18 years of age will have some restrictions while playing the game. They will need to get parental consent to be legally eligible to play the game. Let’s take a look at the new Battlegrounds Mobile India privacy policy and terms of service.

Battlegrounds Mobile India players under 18 years of age will need parental consent to play the game

Battlegrounds Mobile India was announced earlier today. The company has also announced some new terms of service and policies prior to the launch.

The website’s privacy policy states that all the data collection and storage will be in full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations in India and for players here. It also states that players under 18 years of age will require parental consent before playing the game. The consent will be verified by the parent or guardian’s mobile number. 

“When you play our game we do not knowingly collect, use or share any personal information for those who are under 18 years of age without verifiable parental consent or as permitted by law. If you are under 18 years of age, you will be asked to provide the mobile phone number of your parent or guardian to confirm that you are legally eligible to play the game. If you are a parent or guardian and you believe your child with under 18 years of age has provided us with personal information without your consent, you can contact us and request your child’s information to be deleted from our system,” the privacy policy reads.

The updated policy comes after PUBG Mobile had received some strong criticism prior to its ban in India. Parents and guardians criticised the game for its aggressive, violent gameplay environment. Krafton, the developers, had made some temporary provisions after taking feedback from parents and guardians. In addition to the new policy, players under 18 years of age cannot play the game for more than three hours a day. Furthermore, they cannot make in-app purchases above Rs 7,000.
