Personal Information

We may collect information that personally identifies you, such as your name, zip code, e-mail, credit card number, address, billing information and other personally identifiable information when you choose to provide it to us with or that you choose to include in your PlayMG profile or account ("Personal Information").  For example, you may be required to provide us with certain Personal Information when you register with the Site, make a purchase, use any of our Services, and at other times.  The decision to provide this information is optional.  However, if you choose not to provide the requested information, you may not be able to use some or all of the features of the Service or make purchases.

Usage Data and Site Activity

We automatically collect information in connection with the actions you take on the Site and on the Device ("Usage Data").  For example, each time you use the Site we automatically collect the type of Web browser you use, your operating system, your Internet Service Provider, your IP address, the pages you view, and the time and duration of your visits to the Site.  This anonymous usage information may be associated with your username and profile, but we do not disclose the associated information to third parties.

Cookies and Web Beacons 

[We may use cookies (a small text file placed on your computer to identify your computer and browser).  We also may use Web beacons (an electronic file placed on a Web site that monitors usage).  We use cookies and Web beacons to improve the experience of the Site and Services, such as pre-populating your username for easier login.  We do not use cookies or Web beacons to collect Personal Information.   Most Web browsers are initially set up to accept cookies.  You can reset your Web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.  However, certain features of the Service may not work if you delete or disable cookies. Some of our Third-Party Providers (as defined below), may use their own cookies and Web beacons in connection with the services they perform on our behalf[, including, without limitation, targeted ad serving.

How We Use Information and When We May Share and Disclose Information Generally

We use Personal Information for internal purposes only, such as to provide you with the Service, to improve the Service, to fulfill requests for products and services, to notify you of new products or Services, and to otherwise communicate with you about PlayMG.  We will not disclose Personal Information to third parties, including for their direct marketing purposes, without your consent, except as explained in this Privacy Policy.  We may disclose to third parties certain Usage Data regarding the Service.  However, in such cases, your Usage Data is aggregated with the Usage Data of others and does not identify you individually.

From time to time, we may establish a business relationship with other businesses whom we believe trustworthy and who have confirmed that their privacy practices are consistent with ours ("Third-Party Providers").  For example, we may contract with Third-Party Providers to provide certain services, such as credit card processing, hosting and maintenance, data storage and management, and marketing and promotions.  We provide our Third-Party Providers with the information necessary for them to perform these services on our behalf.  Each Service Provider must agree to use reasonable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the information involved in order to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.  Third-Party Providers are prohibited from using Personal Information other than as specified by PlayMG.

We may provide services jointly with other companies.  In some cases, in order to facilitate such services, it may be necessary to share your Personal Information with such other companies.  Before we do so, we will identify the partner, present the joint service provider’s privacy policy to you before you use that service, and obtain your permission to share your Personal Information.

We may work with third-party advertisers, search providers and ad networks ("Advertisers").  These companies may collect and use information about your use of the Site or Services in order to provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you.  Advertisements may be shown via the Site, the Services, or third-party Web sites.  These companies may place or recognize a unique cookie on your computer or use other technologies such as Web beacons.  Our Privacy Policy does not cover any use of information that an Ad Network may collect from you.  You can visit the Network Advertising Initiative Web site, which offers information about Internet advertising companies and how to opt-out of their information collection.

We may share Personal Information and Usage Data with businesses controlling, controlled by, or under common control with PlayMG.  If PlayMG is merged, acquired, or sold, or in the event of a transfer of some or all of our assets, we may disclose or transfer Personal Information and Usage Data in connection with such transaction.  You will have the opportunity to opt out of any such transfer if, in our reasonable judgment, the new entity plans to handle your information in a way that differs materially from this Privacy Policy.

PlayMG cooperates with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law.  We may disclose Personal Information and any other information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties if, in our discretion, we believe it is necessary or appropriate in order to respond to legal requests (including court orders and subpoenas), to protect the safety, property or rights of PlayMG or of any third party, to prevent or stop any illegal, unethical, or legally actionable activity, or to comply with the law.

Third Party Services and Applications

Through the Service, you may elect to access third-party services and applications, such as games that are preinstalled or that you may obtain on the Device, Facebook and other social networks.  When you do so, you may be able to import information from those other services and applications and share content with those services.  Some of those third-party services may also provide us with information from your accounts which may enable us to enhance and personalize your use of the Site and Services (e.g., so that you can follow your Facebook friends’ activity).  If you elect to enable such third-party services or applications, the information you share with such third-party services and applications will be subject to their privacy policies and your privacy settings for such services.  You also may be able to control or block such sharing by changing your privacy settings in such services or applications.

PlayMG recognizes the importance of safeguarding the confidentiality of your Personal Information.  Accordingly, we employ reasonable measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access, disclosure and use.  However, no data transmission over the Internet or other network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.  As a result, while we strive to protect information transmitted on or through the Site or Services, we cannot and do not guarantee the security of any information you transmit on or through the Site or Services, and you do so at your own risk.
