Noting, the first time I’ve given consent to a 3rd-party via Switch. In the game it was prominent: it switched apps to the console browser. And then I received an email message containing:
This e-mail is to confirm that you consented to share Nintendo Account information with the following game, application, or service. To keep this consent in place, no action is needed.
Name of service:
Sky: Children of the Light
Confirmation of Nintendo Account
You can use the link below to check which third-party services have been allowed to receive Nintendo Account information. From this page you can also choose to withdraw any consent granted.
Why you are receiving this e-mail:
Games, applications, and services provided by our third-party partners may ask your consent to receive your Nintendo Account information, such as your e-mail address, date of birth, and nickname. This enables you to use your Nintendo Account to sign up for third-party accounts or play games and applications that are not published by Nintendo.
- This is interesting, I like the way it works, seems a good balance
- What about the Sky servers or game model require a specific consent from Nintendo?
Is this common for 3rd-party online games? I realize this is the first one for me (Animal Crossing, Maria Kart, Mario Party… all first-party games.
