What Personal Information About Customers Does FreeGameAddict.com Gather?
The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your shopping experience at FreeGameAddict.com. Here are the types of information we gather.
What About Cookies?
- Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future shopping for you, improving our stores, and communicating with you.
- Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses FreeGameAddict.com. A number of companies offer utilities designed to help you visit Web sites anonymously. Although we will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience at FreeGameAddict.com if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist.
- E-mail Communications: To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from FreeGameAddict.com if your computer supports such capabilities. We may also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please log in to your account above and visit the 'My Settings' area where you can choose to opt out from e-mail communications..
- Information from Other Sources: We might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information.
Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others.
- Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide features such as storage of items in your Shopping Cart between visits.
- The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, cookies allow you to take full advantage of some of FreeGameAddict.com's best features, and we recommend that you leave them turned on.
Member Accounts, Passwords, and Invitations
If you choose to register an account to take advantage of the member features or to play our online multiplayer games, you will need to supply your e-mail address and a password to gain access. You are responsible for keeping the confidentiality of your e-mail address and password. FreeGameAddict representatives will never ask you for your password.
Does FreeGameAddict.com Share the Information It Receives?
Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below and with subsidiaries FreeGameAddict.com controls that either are subject to this Privacy Notice or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Notice.
How Secure Is Information About Me?
- Agents: We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
- Promotional Offers: Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of FreeGameAddict.com customers on behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we do not give that business your name and address.
- Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores, subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that FreeGameAddict, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
- Protection of FreeGameAddict.com and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Conditions of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of FreeGameAddict.com, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.
- With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
Which Information Can I Access?
- We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.
- We will reveal only the last five digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.
- Any information we collect will be securely stored, using industry standard techniques, and processed in a database that resides in the United States.
- It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
FreeGameAddict.com will give you access to a broad range of information about your account and your interactions with FreeGameAddict.com for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information as our Web site evolves.
What Choices Do I Have?
- As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase or to take advantage of specific FreeGameAddict.com features.
- If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please visit the 'My Settings' section of your account as described above.
- (If you do not want to receive Conditions of Use and other legal notices from us, such as this Privacy Notice, those notices will still govern your use of FreeGameAddict.com, and it is your responsibility to review them for changes.)
- The Federal Trade Commission provides useful information about online privacy on its own Web site, Site Seeing on the Internet.
