WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT FROM YOU
We do not collect any personal information from you unless you provide it to us in one of the ways discussed in this Policy. You may provide us this information directly through the Site or the Game, for example by setting up an account on the Site or on the Game or by submitting a player support query relating to the Game. If you decide to provide us with your personal information (including but not limited to, name, email address, and mailing address), we will collect only the personal information which is needed to fulfill your requests and our legitimate business objectives. If you refuse to divulge your personal information when requested, you may not be able to access certain areas of the Site or the Game (such as chat rooms and message boards).
We may collect information from you related to your performance or use of the Site and the Game. As an example, we may collect information about your performance in the Game, including statistics, scores, or similar accomplishments on a “leader board” or other similar posting comparing your performance to other users of the Game.
We may also receive information directly if your account for the Game is connected to a social media site containing your personal information (for example, Facebook). This information may include your user information, demographic information, and other information associated with your account on the social media site. While we may receive your personal information from various sources, once we have received this information, it will be treated in accordance with this Policy.
By providing personal information to us, you voluntarily consent to the collection, use and disclosure of such personal information as specified in this Policy. Without limiting the foregoing, we may on occasion ask you to consent when we collect, use, or disclose your personal information in specific circumstances. Sometimes your consent will be implied through your conduct with us if the purpose of the collection, use or disclosure is obvious and you voluntarily provide the information.
