This Privacy Policy is designed to help you understand how Luda Studios, Inc. (“Luda,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) collects, uses, processes, and shares your personal information, and to help you understand and exercise your privacy rights.


This Privacy Policy applies to personal information processed by us through the development of any of our Luda projects, such as Mels, Hide & Seek, and Neo Fairies, as well as our website or other online or offline offerings. To make this Privacy Policy easier to read, our projects and the development of our projects, as well as our website and other online or offline offerings, will be called the “Projects.”

An Important Note regarding AI Technologies: If you participate in our Projects which utilize large language models (“LLM”) or other generative AI (“GenAI”) systems, we may use information you provide us, such as the information you provide us through certain text-prompts or in-game interactions, to train or improve such models and systems and any features powered by such models and systems.

An Important Note regarding Blockchain Technologies: If you participate in our Projects relating to the creation and management of a decentralized autonomous organization (“DAO”) or non-fungible tokens (“NFT”), smart contracts will be employed that necessarily collect information, such as your digital wallet address (which some legal jurisdictions may consider personal information), and that information will be stored on a public blockchain that we do not control. A smart contract is computer code that automatically processes events when certain conditions are met; for example, when a proposal is presented to a member’s DAO and after all needed votes are made by respective DAO member, the smart contract will automatically execute the proposed action. In these situations, your personal information will be stored on that blockchain through the execution of a smart contract and may not be able to be modified or deleted due to the immutable nature of the blockchain.
