|Q1||What information does this Privacy Statement cover?|
|Q2||What types of personally identifiable information do we collect about our guests?|
|A2||We collect several types of Personal Information about our guests. We don't require Personal Information to access our site. However, if you prefer not to disclose Personal Information, you will not be able to enjoy certain features of our site.
Information You Provide to UsMuch of the Personal Information we collect comes directly from our web guests. Typically, this information includes name, credit card number, postal and email address, telephone, cell and facsimile number. Additionally, we may also collect other types of non-personal information (known as demographic information) such as your gender, age, date of birth, country, favorite video game, and gaming platform. This demographic information may be associated with your Personal Information and will be used to communicate with you.
ChildrenWe don't knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 13. We take steps to ensure that those who wish to register Personal Information on our website meet certain age requirements before they can proceed with registration. We take kids' privacy seriously, and encourage parents to play an active role in their child's online activities
We collect Personal Information from our web guests to:
Business InformationFor practical reasons, we treat Personal Information submitted to us in a business capacity different from information we receive in a non-business capacity. Personal Information submitted to us in a business capacity (e.g. resumes) may be shared with third parties, depending on the nature of the inquiry.
Information Collected Through TechnologyWe collect information through technology to make our sites more interesting and useful to you. For example, when you come to one of our sites, we collect your IP address. An IP address is often associated with the portal through which you enter the Internet, like your ISP (Internet service provider), your company, or your university. Standing alone, your IP address is not personally identifiable. At times, we also use IP addresses to collect information regarding the frequency with which our guests visit various parts of our sites. We may combine this information with personally identifiable information.
Web BeaconsOur websites use a variety of technical methods for tracking purposes, including web beacons. Web beacons are small pieces of data that are embedded in images on the pages of web sites. We also use these technical methods to analyze the traffic patterns on our web sites, such as the frequency with which our users visit various parts of our Web sites. These technical methods may involve the transmission of information either directly to us or to another party authorized by us to collect information on our behalf. We also use these technical methods in HTML e-mails that we send our guests to determine whether our guests have opened those e-mails or clicked on links in those e-mails. The information from use of these technical methods may be collected in a form that is personally identifiable.
|Q3||How is your Personal Information used and shared?|
|Q4||What choices do you have about the collection, use, and sharing of your Personal Information?|
|A4||Generally, you have control over the Personal Information you submit to us. We encourage iGames members to update and edit their contact information and keep it current. You can easily correct or update contact and account information, or delete optional information in the preferences menu at any time, by using your login and password to access your iGames account. During registration, we also provide our LAN center members with the option to "opt-in" to having Personal Information shared with third parties so that those third parties may use your information to contact you about promotional materials, product information special offers, and other communications. The LAN center member must physically select to "opt-in" either during the registration process or when updating their profile. To remove yourself from "opt-in," you must deselect this option from your profile page. If at any time you decide to remove your Personal Information from our database, you may do so by visiting the profile section of your iGames account or contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Even though your account will not be active, we may also retain your information in back-up storage for some period of time after your deletion request.|
|Q5||What kinds of security measures do we take to safeguard your Personal Information?|
|A5||The security and confidentiality of your information is extremely important to us. We have implemented technical, administrative, and physical security measures to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access and improper use. From time to time, we review our security procedures to consider appropriate new technology and methods. However, please understand that, despite our best efforts, no security measure is perfect or impenetrable. Your membership account is password-protected. We strongly recommend that you do not give your password to anyone and that you change it every 3 months. If you are using a public computer or a shared computer, we strongly recommend that you sign out of your iGames account and close your browser before getting up and moving away from the computer.|
|Q6||How can you update your Personal Information and profile?|
|A6||You can access and update the contact information you gave us during registration (that is, your e-mail address or any other information that would directly enable us to contact you), by visiting the profile section of your iGames account or contacting us at email@example.com.|
