The kinds of information We collect; the way We collect it; why We collect it; how We protect it; the ways We use and share it; Your choices for accessing and updating Your information; and how to contact Us.
When You access Our Service through an SNS, You agree that We may access certain information from the profile You maintain on that site, as determined by the privacy settings You've chosen on the SNS. That information may include Your name, profile photo, user ID, gender, location, birthday and log-in email.
When You access our Service directly, such as at www.play2prep.com, We may allow You to "register" with Us by using an SNS authentication option like Facebook Connect. To make sure Your account is not being accessed improperly, We may also require You to provide Your age or birthday, Your first and last name, Your email address, and other information.
Some information, including Your profile picture and Your first and last names, are considered "public" on play2prep websites and may be indexed by search engines.
We may also allow you to import your address book contacts or manually enter e-mail addresses so that you can (i) locate your contacts on play2prep; and (ii) invite those contacts to join you in our games. We will store those contacts for purposes of helping you and your contacts make connections on our site.
If you access play2prep on your mobile telephone or other mobile device, including iPads and tablets, We may collect mobile device identifiers, including MAC Address, and IP Address. In certain games We will create and assign to your device an identifier that is similar to an account number. We may collect the name you have associated with your device, device type, telephone number, country, and any other information you choose to provide, such as user name, character name, geo-location or e-mail address. We may also access your contacts to enable you to invite friends to join you in the Service.
We may also require You to provide billing information, including Your postal and email addresses, when You choose to license in-game virtual currency or other virtual items from Us, or from a third party such as Facebook. If You ask Us to assist You with a Customer Support issue, we may require Your contact information, User ID number, as well as information about Your use of the Service, and we will retain copies of Your correspondence with Us.
With your consent We may send push notifications to your mobile device to provide game updates and other relevant messages. You can manage push notifications from your device's "settings" page.
We may also compile and retain technical information about Your computer or mobile device, including the IP Address, MAC Address, mobile device ID and usage statistics. We usually obtain this information through server or web log files ("Log Files"), cookies and other tracking technologies, and mobile software development kits. The Log Files may also help us keep track of Your interactions with the Service and with other players.
Some of our games may allow You to share information and communicate with other users, such as by taking part in message boards and forums, submitting comments or photos, or chatting and communicating privately with other users.
Our servers may archive such communications to protect the rights of You, Us, and other users, and You agree that We may do so.
We also use the Log Files and other technology to help us manage advertising, maintain usage records, and improve our users' experience of the Service. Third parties such as Google Analytics may also help us accomplish these goals. To do so, We analyze data such as IP addresses, device and platform type, device identifiers, browser type and language, referring and exit pages, URLs, click counts, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, page view sequence, time spent on specific pages, game state and the date and time of activity on our websites or games. For Our internal use, such information may sometimes be associated with Your User ID.
Other technologies including tracking pixels and web beacons, which tell Us if Users open a certain page or open an email, may help us improve the efficiency of our advertising.
Other users and third party information providers may also provide Us with information, such as email contacts from other play2prep users. We may use such information, in combination with other information we collect, to add to Your profile and help You and Your friends connect.
When We use the information We collect, Our main objective is to improve Your user experience, such as by allowing You to create accounts, play the games offered by Our Service, help You connect with other users, address technical issues, enforce our Terms of Service, and deter fraud and misuse. We may also use Your information to make Our advertisements more relevant and useful to You, inform You of new products and Services, track Your progress in our games, and respond to Your inquiries.
Your name and profile photo may be included in some messages to other users, like invitations to Your friends.
In some situations, We may share Your information, including personal information, with parties other than play2prep.
We often work with service providers who perform services on our behalf, including processing payments, analyzing data, and delivering email. You agree that we may provide Your information to such third party companies, if they agree to keep Your information confidential and do not use it for any purposes other than assisting Us.
Your SNS friends can often see Your name, screen name, profile photo and descriptions of Your game activity when You are using the Service. In some instances, Your SNS or play2prep user ID may also be shown. You may also be able to receive game requests or friend requests through the SNS by which You access Our Service.
An "offer wall" hosted by a third-party provider may be displayed through Our Service. Through this feature, a third party advertiser can provide virtual currency to users in exchange for participating in a marketing offer. We are not responsible for any such offers, and after clicking on one of these advertisements, You will no longer be on a site hosted by play2prep or a partnering SNS. We may, however, provide a unique user identifier to the provider of the offer wall in order to protect the accuracy and security of user accounts.
We may access and monitor Your information, and Your online communications through the Service as needed to provide the Service, and we may disclose such information and communications:
(1) if We believe, in good faith, that We must disclose the information in response to a court order, search warrant, subpoena or other legal process
(2) to satisfy any applicable laws or regulations
(3) if in Our good faith belief the Service is being used to assist in the commission of a crime, or the disclosure is needed for purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction
(4) if in Our good faith belief an emergency threatens the health or safety of You or another person; and
(5) to protect Our rights or property, or enforce our Terms of Service.
If We undergo a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of Our assets, or other business transition, You agree that We may transfer all of Your information, including personal information, to Our successor in interest. If such a business transition will cause material changes to play2prep privacy practices, We will notify You as described below prior to transferring Your personal information.
If You are under the age of 13, You may not access Our Service, and we do not knowingly collect any personal information from such children. If We determine that We have inadvertently obtained personal information from anyone under the age of 13, We will take prompt and reasonable steps to purge such information from our records.
If You access Our Service through an SNS, You must follow that site's directions to manage and control the information play2prep receives about You from that SNS, such as by updating Your information and changing Your privacy settings on the SNS.
