Via Social Networking Site

When you use a Socialtyze Service at a social networking site (“SNS”), including, without limitation, Facebook, you allow Socialtyze to access your profile information in accordance with the policies and terms of the SNS.

Such information may include, but is not limited to, the information detailed above as well as your first and last name, your profile picture, your SNS user ID and respective user IDs of your friends that are connected to the Service, your gender, your birthday, and your email address.

In addition, Socialtyze may use some or all of your profile information as part of the features of the Service, such as game invites. For example, your profile picture may be used in connection with an application so that others using the SNS may see your profile picture as they use that application. Additionally, Socialtyze may use your profile picture in emails sent to individuals you chose to contact to invite to use the Service. For example, Socialtyze may implement a feature so that each time you send a neighbor request or a game invite Socialtyze sends an email to that individual that includes your profile picture.

The information you allow Socialtyze to access is affected by the privacy settings that you have set at the SNS. You may control and learn more about these privacy settings at the applicable SNS.

Socialtyze may collect information, such as your name, address, telephone number, demographic information and information about your tastes and preferences when you enter a contest or sweepstakes or participate in a survey or similar activity on our Service.

The Site uses “cookies,” which are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. Our cookies are used to either identify you as a returning customer or improve the experience on our Service.

Third parties that place advertising on our Service may also use cookies.

Socialtyze uses “Clear GIFs” to analyze traffic on the Site, and within HTML e-mails to determine whether the e-mails have been opened. Clear GIFs (also called Web Beacons, or Web Bugs) are small images embedded on web pages and in email communications.

If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications or update your "user preferences" information as applicable. Otherwise, you may contact us consistent with the notice required below.

CHANGING OR DELETING YOUR INFORMATION

All users may review, update, correct or delete the information in their registration profile by changing the applicable information in their account settings or, for Services that are hosted on a SNS, by changing the applicable information in their profile page. If you completely delete all such information, then your account may become deactivated. If you would like us to delete your record in our system, please contact us and we will attempt to accommodate your request if we do not have any legal obligation to retain the record. See below for privacy contact information.

PROTECTION OF YOUR INFORMATION AND SECURITY

Socialtyze employs commercially reasonable administrative, physical and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored "personal data" (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting on the Service in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, insofar as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.

We recommend that you guard your anonymity and sensitive information and we encourage members to think carefully about what information about themselves they disclose in their profile pages. You can review and revise your profile information at any time. We recommend that you guard your anonymity and sensitive information and that you not use your real name as your username, since that would allow others to identify you. Identity theft and the practice currently known as "phishing" are of great concern to Socialtyze. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your account ID, login password, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication.

Despite both Socialtyze’s and your own efforts, no service on the Internet is completely safe. Therefore, you provide all such Personal Information at your own risk. STORAGE AND INTERNATIONAL TRANSFER

Your Personal Information is stored and processed on computers in the United States and, through your use of the Service, you unequivocally consent to the processing and storage of your Personal Information within the United States. You understand and agree that We may continue to store your information after you cease use of the Service.

Your information may be transferred to, and maintained on, computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. If you are located outside the United States and choose to provide information to us, Socialtyze transfers Personal Information to the United States and processes it there and your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.

CHILDREN’S ONLINE PRIVACY PROTECTION POLICY

The Service is not intended for or directed to users under the age of 13, and Socialtyze does not knowingly or intentionally collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 or other minors. Where appropriate, We take reasonable measures to determine that users are adults of legal age and to inform minors not to submit such information to the Service or in response to advertisements. If you are concerned that personal information may have been inadvertently provided to or collected by Socialtyze, please contact us immediately so appropriate steps may be taken to remove such information from Socialtyze services and database, if any. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will delete such information from our files.
