OUR PRIVACY COMMITMENT

To further this commitment, we have adopted this Online Privacy Policy ("Privacy Policy") to guide how we collect, store, and use the information you provide us.

To protect your privacy, we have voluntarily undertaken this privacy initiative and all of our websites have been reviewed and certified by ESRB Privacy Certified to meet established online information collection and use practices.

Q1 - What information does this Privacy Statement cover?

A1 - This Privacy Policy applies only to personal information collected on the websites where this Privacy Policy is posted, and does not apply to any other information collected by D3Publisher through any other means.

This Privacy Policy applies to use and sharing of personal information collected on and after the date that this Privacy Policy is posted.

Q2 - What types of personally identifiable information do we collect about our guests?

A2 - We don't require personal information to access our website. However, if you prefer not to disclose personal information, you will not be able to enjoy certain features of our website. Personal information is information that identifies you and may be used to contact you. To offer our guests certain features on our website, we collect several types of personal information.

Children

We don't knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. We take kids’ privacy seriously, and encourage parents to play an active role in their children's online experience at all times.

Information You Provide to Us

All of the personal information we receive comes directly from our guests. We collect personal information from our guests to:

  • participate in polls, surveys, and questionnaires
  • participate in contests, sweepstakes, or other promotions
  • offer feedback or other business inquiries
  • receive customer or technical support
  • register for Bulletin Boards, Message Boards, or Forums
  • perform internal operations for our sites

Typically, this information includes:

1. name  
2. email address  
3. telephone number

Additionally, we may also collect other types of non-personal information (known as demographic information) such as your age or date of birth, gender, hobbies, platform preferences, and other game ownership and preferences. This demographic information may be associated with your personal information.

Information Collected Through Technology

We collect information through technology to make our websites more interesting and useful to you. For example, when you come to one of our websites, we collect your IP address. An IP address is often associated with the portal through which you enter the Internet, like your ISP (Internet service provider), your company, or your university. Standing alone, your IP address is not personally identifiable. At times, we also use IP addresses to collect information regarding the frequency with which our guests visit various parts of our websites. We may combine this information with personally identifiable information.

Cookies  
 
Portions of our websites may also use cookies. Cookies are pieces of information that a Website sends to your computer while you are viewing the Website. We and other companies use cookies for a variety of purposes. For example, when you return to one of our websites after logging in, cookies provide information to the website so that the website will remember who you are. You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You can do this through your browser (like Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you won't have access to many features that make your web experience smoother, like the features mentioned above, and some of our services may not function properly.

Social Media Sites and Social Media Plug-Ins

Some of our websites or product pages may use plug-ins, link to, or post information from social media services, like a Facebook page or Twitter account.  These social media services may share information with us, such as personal information (i.e. your name, location, the ‘likes’ you make) or non-personal information (i.e. content viewed, or click-throughs).

By clicking on these links and plug-ins, you consent to the use of this information in accordance with our privacy policy.  When you provide personal information to us through an application, on our sites, or on social networking sites, it may be publicly viewed by other members of these sites and we cannot prevent further use of the information by third parties. 

Through some social networking sites’ privacy settings, you can control what data you share.  For more information about how social networking sites handle your personal information, please refer to their privacy policies and terms of use.

The privacy policies for the most common of these sites and services can be found at the links below:

Finally, once you've clicked on a partner's link and have left our Websites, our Privacy Policy no longer applies and you must read the privacy policy of the partner to see how your personal information will be handled on their website.

Q3 - How is your personally identifiable information used and shared?

A3 - We don’t share, sell, or rent your personal information to unrelated third parties.  We don’t require personal information to access our website.  However, if you prefer not to disclose personal information, you will not be able to enjoy certain features of our website.

Whatever the purpose may be, we will only collect information to the extent reasonably necessary to fulfill your requests and our legitimate business objectives.

D3Publisher Tools and Updates

Information collected from those who voluntarily submit it to us is used to provide services like newsletter subscription, updates on special events, game news, and email announcements of interest to our users.  If at any time you receive an email from us and wish to unsubscribe, you may do so by doing any one of the following:

  • Clicking the “unsubscribe” link or following the “unsubscribe” instructions in the email you received. (preferred)
  • Emailing our customer support team at support@d3p.us.

    ATTN: Customer Support - Unsubscribe

Operational Uses

We may also use your personal information for other purposes such as “Operational Uses.”  For example, we may use your information to send you administrative communications either about your account with us or about features of our websites, including any future changes to this Privacy Policy.

We occasionally use other companies, agents or contractors to perform services necessary to our operations.  For example, we have partnered with other companies to personalize our web pages, analyze customers’ interaction with our website, and process consumer surveys.  In the course of providing such services, these companies may have contact with your personally identifying information.  These entities have agreed to securely store and maintain the personal information received from us.

The privacy policies for the most common of these sites and services can be found at the links below:

Aggregate Information

Finally, we may take your personally identifiable information and make it non-personally identifiable, either by combining it with information about other individuals (aggregating your information with information about other individuals), or by removing characteristics (such as your name) that make the information personally identifiable to you (de-personalizing your information).  Given the nature of this information, no restrictions apply under this Privacy Policy on our right to aggregate or de-personalize your personal information, and we may use and share in any way with third parties the resulting non-personally identifiable information.

Business Information

For practical reasons, we treat personal information submitted to us in a business capacity different from information we receive in a non-business capacity.  Personal information submitted to us in a business capacity (e.g. resumes, event sponsorship, etc.) may be shared with third parties, depending on the nature of the inquiry.

Purchase or Sale of Businesses

From time to time, we may purchase a business or sell one or more of our businesses and your personally identifiable information may be transferred as a part of the purchase or sale.  If we purchase a business, the personally identifiable information received with that business would be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy, if it is practicable and permissible to do so.  If we sell a business, we will include provisions in the selling contract requiring the purchaser to treat your personally identifiable information in the same manner required by this Privacy Policy (including any amendments to this Privacy Policy).  The provisions of this paragraph will also apply if we are sold as part of bankruptcy proceedings.

Disclosures Required By Law and Disclosures to Help Protect the Security and Safety of Our Websites and Others

We will disclose personal information when we believe in good faith that such disclosures (a) are required by law, including, for example, to comply with a court order or subpoena, or (b) will help to: enforce our Terms of Use; enforce contest, sweepstakes, promotions, and/or game rules; protect your safety or security, including the safety and security of property that belongs to you; and/or, protect the safety and security of our websites or third parties.

Q4 - What choices do you have about the collection, use, and sharing of your personally identifiable information?

A4 - As mentioned above, you have control over the personal information you submit to us. If at any time you decide to remove your personal information from our database, you may do so by emailing us at privacypolicy@d3p.us.  Please note that any information, including personally identifiable information that you reveal in a bulletin board, message board, chat room or other public forum is publicly viewable on the Site.

Q5 - What kinds of security measures do we take to safeguard your personally identifiable information?

A5 - The security and confidentiality of your information is extremely important to us.  We have implemented technical, administrative, and physical security measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized access and improper use.  Those measures include: maintaining information collected online behind a firewall-protected server; encrypting username and password information; limiting access to personal information to only those employees performing a legitimate business function; storing users’ personal information on off-site servers separate from other corporate information and systems; notifying by email or posting a notice on our website if D3Publisher learns that a data breach has occurred. From time to time, we review our security procedures to consider appropriate new technology and methods.  However, please understand that, despite our best efforts, no security measure is perfect or impenetrable.
