Effective Date: November 17, 2015
Why We Collect Information
Our primary goals in collecting information are to improve our Services by providing a richer, more engaging experience, and to effectively administer your participation.
What We Collect
When you register with us on one of the Services we may ask you for personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. We also collect the other information that you provide as part of registration and the administration and personalization of your account. Please note that because a third party site manages the purchases of virtual goods offered by the Service, we do not have access to your credit card details or billing information.
If non-Personal Information is collected for an activity that also requires personal information, we may combine your non-personal information with your personal information in an attempt to provide you with a better user experience, to improve the value and quality of the Services and to analyze how its Services are used. The Service may also record game play information such as your game session duration or your high scores.
Finally, in order to provide the best possible service and to allow us to make certain internal reports and make recommendations, we collect aggregate information about the use of the Services, including information about users accessing the Services on other sites, such as internet protocol addresses, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, other browser history, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time (“Activity Information”). By using the Services, you consent to our retaining all the above-described information in anonymous form as long as we see fit.
Third Party Service Providers
We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate its Services, to provide the Services on its behalf, to perform tasks (e.g., without limitation, maintenance services, database management, web analytics and improvement of the Services) or to assist us in analyzing how its Services are used.
To improve your game experience, we basically collect a series of data regarding your in-game activities, including but not limited to your activity logs, IP addresses, and browser info, and so forth. If you don't want us to do so, please let us know via our support e-mail(firstname.lastname@example.org
) and we will stop collecting the data above.
If you would like us to delete your record in its system, please contact us and we will attempt to accommodate your request if it is not legally obligated to retain the record.
If you have granted our access to your Account Information through a Service, you may request that we delete your Account Information by sending an email to: email@example.com
. You can request deletion of your Account Information by dissociating or removing our application from your social network or third party service account in accordance with the instructions provided by the social network or third party service.
Children Under The Age Of 13
We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to register for any Services or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 may provide any personal information to or on any Services. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at our Support Center.
Children Between The Ages of 13 and 18
We recommend that minors over the age of 13 ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet.
How We Use Your Information
We use your information to fulfill your specific requests, purchase orders and to send you purchase confirmation and other account-related information. In addition, the personal information you provide will allow us to send you messages regarding, among other things, new products, features, enhancements, special offers, upgrade opportunities, contests and events of interest. You may also later opt out of certain of these communications. You may opt out of all communications from us by sending an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We may also use personal and non-personal information, both individually and combined together, to better understand the behavior and preferences of its customers, to troubleshoot technical problems, to serve static and dynamic advertising, to enforce its Terms of Service, to ensure proper functioning of its products and services as well as to help improve Services and their content. In addition, we may combine non-personal information with personal information, such as an email address, to administer loyalty programs, tailor its offerings, web pages or game play experience to you.
We may, however, use certain information about you that is not personally identifiable. We use public information collected to determine the kinds of content that you would like to view and to assist any advertisers in targeting their advertising. We also use your name, email address and other information on our system to notify you of new product releases, service notifications, and to solicit your feedback and input. Those emails will contain links for preference management and where appropriate, unsubscribe links should you decide you do not want to receive further emails.
You understand and agree that we may access, preserve, and disclose any information we may have about you and the contents of your account if required to do so by law or in a good faith belief that such access, preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to avoid liability, to comply with legal process, such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, or court order, or to protect our rights and property, or that of our affiliates or the public. We are not required to question or contest the validity of any search warrant, subpoena or other similar governmental request that we receive.
If you enter into a sweepstake, contest, or similar promotion, we may use the information you provide to administer those programs. Your participation in tournaments or other online game events is conditional upon you granting us permission to collect, use, store, transmit and display publicly statistical data, such as your scores, rankings and achievements, generated through your participation.
Controlling Your Personal Information
Be advised that if you send messages or post material containing personal information, that information may be collected and used by others.
Note that certain information you post and communicate through a Service or a third party site or service is public information for which you have no expectation of privacy. You may choose to disclose information about yourself in the course of contributing user generated content to our sites or Services or in its chat rooms, blogs, message boards, user “profiles” for public view or in similar forums on its sites through third party sites or services. Information that you disclose in any of these forums is public information, and there is no expectation of privacy or confidentiality.
You should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit in the course of these public activities can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to make public in any of these forums. If you post a video, image or photo through a Service for public view, you should be aware that these may be viewed, collected, copied and/or used by other users without your consent. We are not responsible for the videos, images or photos that you choose to post through a Service.
Disclosure of Your Personal Information
We may also disclose information about you if it determines that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce the terms and conditions of the Service or to protect its operations or users. Additionally, we may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets, including your Personal Information, in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets or in the event of bankruptcy.
The Service may contain links to other websites or applications. The fact that the Service links to a website or application or presents a banner ad or other type of advertisement does not mean that we endorse or authorize that third party, nor is it a representation of any affiliation with that third party. If you click on a link to a third party site or application, including on an advertisement, you will leave the our site you are visiting or application you are running and will go to the site or application linked to. These third party websites and applications may place their own cookies or other files on your computer and may collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other sites and applications follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. Because we cannot control the activities of third parties, it cannot accept responsibility for any use of your personal information by such third parties, and it cannot guarantee that they will adhere to the same privacy and security practices as we do. You are therefore encouraged to read the privacy policies or statements of other websites and applications you visit before providing any personal information.
Third-Party Advertising Companies
We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on the Services. Our system and the third-party advertising technology uses information derived from Users’ activity, our cookies on your hard drive, your visits to our site, and the Services you use, to target advertising within the Services. In addition, our advertisers may use other third-party advertising technology to target advertising on our site and other sites. In the course of advertisements being served to you, a unique third-party cookie or cookies may be placed on your computer. Similarly, third-party advertising companies may provide us with pixel tags (also called “clear gifs” or “beacons”) to help manage and optimize our online advertising. Beacons enable us to recognize a browser’s cookie when a browser visits the site on which the beacon is located, and to learn which banner ads bring users to a given site.
We do not provide any Personally Identifiable Information to third-party advertising companies. Note, however, that if an advertiser asks us to show an advertisement to users with certain characteristics (for example, women ages 18-24) or a segment of that group (for example, women ages 18-24 who have viewed certain categories of content) and you respond to that advertisement, the third-party advertising company may conclude that you have the characteristics of the audience that they are trying to reach.
We are very concerned with safeguarding your information. Your account information is located on a secured server behind a firewall. When you enter sensitive, we encrypt that information using with our best efforts. Because email and instant messaging are not recognized as secure communications, we request that you not send private information to us by email or instant messaging services.
However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to overcome those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes.
