Any user from India is able to contact PUBG mobile regarding “Access, Correction or Erasure” of any personal data. This means you can question the officials for any personal data they have collected, correct it or even apply for erasing any personal information you don’t want them to have.

Indian user data is mainly collected on “Game Services” located in India, which may safeguard the privacy concerns of the users. This may clarify the privacy breach concerns in India and maybe cast aside the rumours regarding game ban.
