1.1 Our Websites offer a diverse, current and exciting mix of online games created by SPIL, as well as games created by independent developers and SPIL partners. Players can access our Websites to play games without registering, but they can also choose to register to create a public or semi-public profile and to save games, high scores and comments on this profile. Visitors to the Websites will also be able to rate games and browse for any newly added, top-rated and most popular games.
The information our Websites collect includes the following:
a) IP address, Cookies and Web Beacons
2.1 When you visit our Websites, our servers automatically save your computer's IP address. IP addresses will be collected along with information about the actual web pages that you visit on the Websites. If you arrive at the Websites via a link from another website, the URL of the linking website and the URL of any website that you link to next will also be collected.
(a) operate and improve products and services on the Websites;
(b) help authenticate you when you are on the Websites;
(c) remember your preferences and registration information, as applicable;
(d) present and help measure and research the effectiveness of SPIL's services, products, advertisements and email communications; and
(e) customise the content and advertisements provided to you through the Websites.
2.4 SPIL may also use third party payment service providers (hereafter referred to as a "PSP"), who provide payment transaction services to SPIL to sell products or services through the Websites. When you purchase a product from the Websites (e.g. a virtual game item or a subscription for a game download), the information you provide to the PSP is subject to their privacy policies, not ours. You explicitly consent that SPIL may provide personal information collected from you to a PSP for the purpose of offering the payment transaction service when you purchase an item from the Websites, and that the PSP may use such data for (statistical) analysis of payment transactions. SPIL shall be allowed to notify a PSP regarding a user who engages in (or who a party believes has engaged in) any activity that is illegal, that violates any person's rights, or that resulted in such user's suspension or termination of use of the Websites.
2.6 Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, but you can (re)set your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.

However, some features and services may not function properly if cookies are disabled.
2.7 You may choose to register with us to gain a better game experience and/or to create a public or semi-public profile to enable you to participate in our social gaming network. This includes, for example, overviews of high scores, achievements listings and individual game recommendations on the Websites. When you register with us, you provide us with certain personal information, such as a username, your date and month of birth and your email address, and any information you disclose may also become publicly accessible. We provide you with privacy settings that restrict other users from accessing your information and our network architecture and your privacy settings allow you to make informed choices about who has access to your information. We allow you to choose the information you provide to friends and networks through our Websites. If your privacy settings permit, other users may be able to view and supplement your profile (i.e. by posting comments).
2.8 If you decide to disclose information in a public venue or in games, we will consider that information as part of the public domain. This information will be accessible to any user who visits the Websites.

(i) the promotion of (new) games;
(ii) service emails (regarding updates, new design, new features, etc.);
(iv) delivering messages you have allowed us to forward (e.g. from other users in your social network).
2.10 We will not, without your approval:
(a) make your email address visible on the Websites;
(b) use your email address for purposes other than those described in article 2.9 hereof;
c) Combination of Personal Data

We may also supply information to other parties if we are required to do so by law or by a ruling from a court of law. SPIL does not provide personal details to other parties for commercial, advertising or marketing purposes unless we have your explicit permission to do so, or if doing so is part of a specific program or operation for which you have registered.
