THX GAMES LTD. is committed to making our social networking site applications ("SNS Apps”) fun to use. We know that you care how information about you is used and shared, and if you are worried about your privacy it is hard to have a good time! That is why we work hard to protect your information. THX GAMES LTD. respects the privacy rights of our users and is strongly committed to your privacy online.
The Policy is current as of the "last updated”. We reserve the right to change this Policy at any time, so be sure to check back periodically. If the changes we make to our Policy are material, we will notify you on this webpage that this Policy has been revised.
Information We Collect:
Purchase Related Information:
We receive and store the information you provide to THX GAMES LTD. when you make an SNS App-related purchase from THX GAMES LTD. or that you provide to us when you enter promotions. This personal information, such as a first and last name, valid e-mail address or credit card billing data, may be necessary to purchase virtual currency, virtual items, enter a promotion or otherwise transact business with us. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of the many features of our SNS Apps.
Information We Collect Automatically:
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, we automatically send and receive information to and from your device which we use to automatically update our products and services (new features, bug fixes, etc.). Like many websites, we also use "cookies” and other automated tools to obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses our SNS Apps. Though such information will typically be used in an aggregated way to improve our products and services, some information may be used to personalize your experience, or to offer you products and services specifically based on your preferences and usage. In addition, our servers automatically recognize your computer’s IP address and other technical information about your Web browser and domain name. See the section below entitled "IP Address Information” for more information.
IP Address Information:
Each time you use one of our SNS Apps on a social networking site, or when you connect to a social networking site through one of our SNS Apps, our Web server automatically recognizes your IP address, as well as other technical information about your Web browser and domain name. In addition, our servers may look up the IP address and other information about your computer or handheld device so that THX GAMES LTD. can:
This information may include, but is not limited to, your name, age, e-mail address, the location of your computer or handheld device, your profile picture, gender, and the pictures and names of your social networking site "friends”, as well as other basic information regarding your social networking site "friends” that may be provided by the social networking site to THX GAMES LTD. You may choose not to allow your social networking site to provide us with certain information about you, but then you might not be able to play our SNS Apps, or take advantage of many of our SNS Apps’ features.
From time to time, you may encounter an error while playing an SNS App. If so, you may receive a request from THX GAMES LTD. asking if you wouldd like to send an error report to THX GAMES LTD. If you do not wish to send a report, click "Cancel”. If you are willing to send the report, then the report will contain your email address, as well as information that does not identify you, such as the version of the THX GAMES LTD. software and operating system you are using and a console log. THX GAMES LTD. Customer Support may use your email address to contact you about the error you encountered.
A cookie is a small text file recorded on your hard drive that identifies you as a unique user and contains certain information about your online activities.
THX GAMES LTD. sends "cookies” to your computer when you use one of our SNS Apps. The information we collect from cookies is used to identify you when you log in to play one of our SNS Apps from your social networking site profile, as well as to improve the quality of our service and to make our SNS Apps more fun and easier to use. Third party advertisers may also send cookies to your computer and collect information from cookies (see the "Third Party Advertising Companies" section below).
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. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies, or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, you will NOT be able to use important features of our SNS Apps if you disable cookies.
Our SNS Apps may contain links to other websites and content offered by other websites, including the social networking site through which you accessed our SNS Apps. These other sites maintain their own policies regarding cookies and the collection and use of personal information. It is up to you to review those policies yourself.
International Operations, Transfers and Cloud Computing:
THX GAMES LTD. and its subsidiaries and affiliates operate in several countries. Personal information collected from or submitted by you through the SNS Apps may be transferred to and stored on servers and equipment located in a destination outside of your country of residence. The servers and equipment on which your data is stored and processed may be owned and operated by third parties with whom THX GAMES LTD. has contracted to receive, store and process your personal information. In addition, THX GAMES LTD., and those third parties that it has designated, may further transfer, store and process your personal information on servers and equipment located in other countries. You should be aware that the data protection laws of other countries may not be the same as the data protection laws of your country of residence. By submitting your personal information through an SNS App, you agree to the transfer, storage and processing of your personal information as described in this Section.
How We Use Your Information:
THX GAMES LTD. may use the information we collect about you for any of the following purposes:
How and When We Share Information:
Information about our users is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling them to others. We share customer information only as compatible with the purposes described above, and when we have your permission or as described in this section.
We take commercially reasonable precautions to protect your personal information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
If THX GAMES LTD. collects your credit card information, THX GAMES LTD. will NOT reveal or store more than the last four digits of your credit card number when you enter into a financial transaction with us through one of our SNS Apps. Of course, we will transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company for processing.
We work to protect the security of your financial information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts financial information you provide to THX GAMES LTD. through our SNS Apps, such as payment card data.
Please be aware that despite our best efforts, no data security measures can guarantee 100% security all of the time.
Any information we collect will be kept on secure servers and securely processed, stored and archived in databases and backups that could reside outside Hungary in a jurisdiction, which generally provides as secure service as in the United States and the Member States of the European Union.
Can I Access My Personal Information?
We will take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we collect and store is reliable, accurate, complete and current. You may also have the right (subject to certain exceptions) to be given a copy of any "personal data” that we, as a data controller, hold concerning you (for which we may charge a small fee to process) and to have any inaccuracies in your personal data that is stored by us to be corrected and/or erased. You may exercise any such rights by emailing us at email@example.com. We will need you to provide us with sufficient information to establish your identity and to verify your access request and also to assist us in dealing with your request. Requests will be processed as soon as possible and not later than 40 days.
Please note, however, that we do not have control over the personal information you provide to your social networking site. You will need to contact them directly, or log into your social networking site account to access or modify the personal information you provide to them.
What Choices Do I Have?
As discussed above, you can always choose NOT to provide personal information to THX GAMES LTD. (directly or by allowing your social networking site to do so on your behalf), but that may prevent you from being able to play the game, or to take advantage of specific features of our SNS Apps.
If you do not want to receive promotional e-mails, or other promotional communications from a particular SNS App, please send us an e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Children Under The Age Of 13:
THX GAMES LTD. does NOT knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13. If you are under 13, please do NOT attempt to send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 13 we will delete that information as quickly as possible.
Third-Party Advertising Companies:
We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on our site and on certain THX GAMES LTD. games and SNS Apps. Our system and the third-party advertising technology uses information derived from cookies on your hard drive and the SNS Apps you use to target advertising within our SNS Apps. In addition, our advertisers may use other third-party advertising technology to target advertising on 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.
THX GAMES LTD. does NOT provide any personal information to third-party advertising companies. Note, however, that if an advertiser asks THX GAMES LTD. 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.
