The web sites and services covered by this Policy
We currently operate the following web sites (the “Site” or “Sites”) East Side Games (“Games”) collectively (“Services”):
From time to time, we may add new Services that may not be listed above, but they will provide a link to this Policy and will be governed by its terms. This Policy will only apply to Services on which the Policy appears.
Our policies concerning children
East Side Games complies with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and all other applicable laws and regulations concerning children and the Internet.
Children under the age of 13
If you are under the age of 13, you may not create an account on the Site or play our Games. You may not sign up for any subscription service or buy anything through our Services.
East Side Games will not knowingly collect, maintain, or disclose any personal information from children under the age of 13.
Kids between the ages of 13 and 18
If you are between the ages of 13 and 18, please have your parent or guardian read this Policy and get his or her permission before you give us any of your personal identifiable information, before you use any of our message board or chat features, before you sign up for any Services, and before you buy anything from the Sites. Never tell anyone online anything private about yourself or your family, including your phone number and address, unless your parent or guardian has approved. Understand that certain social media platforms that we may use to distribute our games may have this information visible. Use screen names whenever possible to protect your identity. Some areas of the Services may have special rules for children under the age of 18. When you are in those areas, you must follow those rules.
Information for Parents/Guardians
East Side Games encourages parents and guardians to spend time online with their children to become familiar with the types of content available on the Internet, including our online games. Parents and guardians should regularly oversee their children’s use of e-mail and other online communications and transactional features. Control tools are available from online services and software manufacturers that can help provide a safe online environment for kids.
If you are a parent or guardian who has discovered that your child has submitted his or her personal information without your permission or consent, East Side Games will take reasonable steps to remove that information from the East Side Games database at your request. To request removal of your child’s information, please send us an e-mail to email@example.com and be sure to include in your message your contact information.
What personal information we collect from you
We do not collect personally identifiable 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 our Services. If you decide to provide us your personal information (e.g., 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 as part of the Services (such as chat rooms and message boards).
We may also collect information from you related to your performance or use of our Services. As an example, we may collect information about your performance, including statistics, scores, or similar accomplishments on a “leader board” or other similar posting comparing your performance to other user’s of our Services.
We may also receive information directly if one of our Games is connected to a social media site containing your personal information. This information can 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.
Memberships and Registration
In order for you to register for our Services, we may require you to provide us with information such as a name, email address, state and country of residence, zip/postal code, birthdate and gender. Some areas of the Services may allow you to visit as a guest and remain anonymous, but you may not be able to access all the content and features of those areas without registering (in order to play certain Games, additional information, such as your real name and billing information, may be required). You may be asked to choose a user or member name and password.
Please note that your username will be available to the Internet’s general public while you participate in some Services, like Games, chat rooms or message boards, so you should exercise discretion when using these Services. Personal information disclosed by you within our chat areas, instant message service, message boards, or during game play can be collected by other users of such Services and may result in unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for protecting such information that you may disclose to third parties through our Services (e.g. sending your telephone number to another user through the chat service). To the extent that you create a public profile that may be available to others on our Services, you are solely responsible for its content and accuracy at all times. To edit, change, or delete such information, follow the instructions provided on our Services
Newsletters / Updates
As part of your participation in the Services, we may send you email to operate or promote our Service or other products we believe may be of interest to you. In addition, we may contact you using other personal information that you have provided to us (such as a physical mailing address) or contact information that you have made publicly accessible (such as through a social networking service). You can opt out of our communications by following the procedures in this Policy.
Third Party Services
There may be times where a third party authorized by East Side Games to appear on the Service may ask to collect your personal information themselves. These third parties can include advertisers and third party service providers who offer you something of value in exchange for your personal information (such as game credits). When you provide your personal information to such third parties, they will use your personal information in accordance with their own privacy policies and not this Policy. Therefore, you should read their privacy policies carefully before providing them with your personal information. East Side Games is not responsible for the privacy practices of such third parties.
What non-personal information we collect from you
General, aggregated, demographic, and non-personal information may be collected by East Side Games. It will not be linked to any of your personal information. This type of anonymous, aggregated profiling and session data may include information that you have provided to us through surveys, polls, etc. It may also include aggregated anonymous information about Site usage and the customer base.
As part of the registration process for some Services, you may be asked to provide information that does not personally identify you. For example, you may be asked to provide information concerning your entertainment preferences, purchasing habits, and the like. This information is generally optional but may be included in your account profile or your account profile for social media platforms that play our Games. This preference information may be tied to personal information. East Side Games requests this information to understand you better and to also bring to your attention new services, programs, or offers that may be of interest to you.
Information on cookies and related technology
The Services may contain “cookies” and similar technologies such as web bugs and clear gifs.
A cookie is a file that is sent by a service through your browser to your computer, if your browser is enabled to accept cookies, in order to store certain information on your computer and communicate with a service while you are online.
Internet browsers will allow you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block acceptance of cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. You should refer to your browser instructions or “Help” screen to learn more about how to manage cookies. Please note, however, that if you block cookies, some portions of the Services may not function properly.
How we use and share the information that we collect from you
Personal information which we collect from you will only be used as described in this Policy. Except as described in this Policy, we will not give any of your personal information to any third party without your express approval.
When you have provided personal information to us for a particular purpose, we may disclose your information to our vendors and business partners who assist us in fulfilling your requests and operating the Service, but they may only use the personal information for such purposes. This may include, but is not limited to, fulfillment houses, billing services, transaction managers, credit verification services, and other third party service providers.
We may also disclose any of your personal information to law enforcement or other appropriate third parties in connection with criminal investigations, investigation of fraud, infringement of intellectual property rights, or other suspected illegal activities, or as otherwise may be required by applicable law, or, as we deem necessary in our sole discretion, in order to protect the legitimate legal and business interests of East Side Games.
We may use the information we collect from you for the purpose of providing you with technical support, customer service, operating the Service and account maintenance. We use the information we collect to learn what you like, tailor your experience accordingly, and to improve web sites and our other products. We may send e-mail and other messages to our members regarding the Service and other offerings that we believe might be of interest to you.
We may share general, demographic, or aggregated information with any number of third parties, but that information does not include any personal information.
You will be deemed to have consented to the disclosure to, and use by, a subsequent owner or operator of the Sites, of any personal information contained in the East Side Games database for such site, if East Side Games assigns all of its rights and obligations regarding the use of your personal information at the time of a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, sale of all or substantially all of East Side Games assets to a subsequent owner or operator, or similar event.
How you may access or change the information you have provided to us or opt-out of further communications
If you would like to modify any personal information you have provided to us, or have us no longer use this information, please follow the instructions associated with the Services. If you have any questions or would like to access or change your information via email, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
