Our Services are intended for the general public, and we do not knowingly collect any personal information from children. When a user establishes a profile for our Games and/or uses our Games, we only collect non-identifiable Device and log information as noted above. We do not collect any other personally identifiable information from our users or Gamers, including email addresses and/or ages of our users or Gamers. We will only identify gamers by a number assigned by us.

Note that our third party online community provider, Disqus, does collect an email address from any user or Gamer who desires to post in on our online community, and we have access to that email address. However, neither we, nor Disqus will request any user or gamer’s assigned number, and neither we, nor Disqus, currently collect the age or birthdate of any user or gamer. Our policy is that only persons over thirteen (13) years of age may post on our online community.

Third party websites accessible through our Website will/should have their own privacy policies, and a description of the third party’s data collection, use and disclosure practices.

Again, we are not responsible for the policies or practices of third parties. Our Privacy Policy does not apply to any party that we do not own or control.
