Introduction

HNC Games understands that your privacy is important to us and, as described in this Privacy Policy, we have designed the Service to protect your personal information from unauthorized disclosure to others. This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use and, in certain circumstances, share your personally identifiable information. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully, and if you have any questions, feel free to contact us. By using our service, you consent to the collection and use of your personal information as outlined in this Privacy Policy, as such policy may be amended from time to time.


Information Collected

Our primary goals in collecting information are to improve our Services by providing a richer, more engaging experience, and to effectively administer your participation. When you install any of the Services, HNC Games may collect and record the information you provide, whether through the Services or through social network, mobile device or other third party services.

When you register a profile with HNC Games, your profile including any information (name, email address) will be registered with HNC Games. When you identify yourself on HNC Games network, you may identify yourself through a social network account in which HNC Games may receive additional information about your profile.

In each case, we will collect and record the information you have provided. Other than names and email addresses provided at your discretion, we don't generally collect any "Personally identifiable Information" about our users (such as social security number, telephone number, street address, drivers license number, etc.), with the exception being "Billing and Payments", where we store your billing information such as name, street address, and phone number. We may offer you the opportunity to submit other information about yourself (such as gender, age, occupation, hobbies, interests, zip code, etc.) from social networking systems on which you have used HNC Games' network (in accordance with the terms of use of those systems), which would then also be covered by this Privacy Policy.

Note that since HNC Games collects your data from social networking sites, it is your responsibility to read and accept their Terms of Use, as well as Privacy Policy prior to continuing.
When you invite new members into your network or send messages through the Service, we collect and maintain the information associated with those messages on secure servers, including email addresses and content.

HNC Games network may contain links to other websites. We are naturally not responsible for the privacy practices of other web sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by HNC Games.

By using the Service, you consent to our retaining all the above-mentioned information in anonymous form as long as HNC Games sees fit.


Collection of Personal Data from Children

HNC GAMES' Web site for or marketed to persons under the age of 21. HNC GAMES does not collect or post information from children under the age of 13. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible.


The use of your information

The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on HNC Games' latest product announcements, software updates, and upcoming events. It also helps us to improve our services, content, and advertising. If you don't want to be on our mailing list, you can opt out anytime by updating your preferences. We also use personal information to help us develop, deliver, and improve our products, services, content, and advertising. From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about purchases and changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with HNC Games, you may not opt out of receiving these communications. We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve HNC Games' products, services, and customer communications. If you enter into a sweepstake, contest, or similar promotion we may use the information you provide to administer those programs.

We also collect non-personal information − data in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:

  • We may collect information such as occupation, language, zip code, area code, unique device identifier, location, and the time zone so that we can better understand customer behavior and improve our products, services, and advertising.

  • We also may collect information regarding customer activities on our website and from our other products and services. This information is aggregated and used to help us provide more useful information to our customers and to understand which parts of our website, products, and services are of most interest. Aggregated data is considered non-personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

If we do combine non-personal information with personal information the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.


Third Party Service Providers

We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on the Services. Our system and the third-party advertising technology uses information derived from Users' activity, HNC Games' cookies on your hard drive, your visits to our site, and the Services you use, to target advertising within the Services. In addition, our advertisers may use other third-party advertising technology to target advertising on our site and other sites. In the course of advertisements being served to you, a unique third-party cookie or cookies may be placed on your computer.

Similarly, third-party advertising companies may provide us with pixel tags (also called "clear gifs" or "beacons") to help manage and optimize our online advertising. Beacons enable us to recognize a browser's cookie when a browser visits the site on which the beacon is located, and to learn which banner ads bring users to a given site.

HNC Games does not provide any Personally Identifiable Information to third-party advertising companies. Note, however, that if an advertiser asks HNC Games to show an advertisement to users with certain characteristics (for example, women ages 18-24) or a segment of that group (for example, women ages 18-24 who have viewed certain categories of content) and you respond to that advertisement, the third-party advertising company may conclude that you have the characteristics of the audience that they are trying to reach.


Disclosure of Your Personal Information

You understand and agree that HNC Games may be required to disclose any personal information if required to do so by law or in the belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to avoid liability, to comply with legal process, including, but not limited to a subpoena, statute, search warrant, or court order, or to protect the property and rights of HNC Games or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity HNC Games may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, illegal, unethical or legally actionable. Note that HNC Games is not required to question or contest the validity of any search warrant, subpoena or other similar governmental request that it may receive.

Like many websites, HNC Games may use "cookies" to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your computer's hard disk or your mobile device for record-keeping purposes. The Service may send cookies to a computer or a mobile device when a user accesses or views a Service.

Links

The Service may contain links to other websites or applications.
