Social Networking Sites:
If you access one of our social games ("Social Games"), The Playforge may receive information about your social networking site profile, including without limitation your first, last and user names, and social networking site profile ID and icon, in accordance with the terms of such social networking site.
If you invite new members into your Social Games network or send messages through Social Games, we may collect and maintain on secure servers the information associated with those messages, including email addresses and content.
The Playforge takes all reasonable precautions to safeguard the privacy of your data. All data that we collect is stored on one or more secure database servers that cannot be accessed from outside our corporate network. Outside of our network, the only access to this data is that provided through the Playforge Services. Through The Playforge Services, access to personal information is completely controlled by user-defined e-mail addresses, usernames and passwords. Within our company, access to data is secured through a private user ID and password known only to personnel who have a need to know such information to perform their essential job functions. All employees of The Playforge are legally bound by a nondisclosure agreement that prevents the disclosure of any corporate or customer information to other parties. Please be aware that despite our best efforts, no data security measures can guarantee 100% security all of the time. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer. We strongly recommend that you implement measures to protect your computer from unauthorized access such as firewall protection and anti-virus software.
We may use your username, e-mail address, and password to uniquely identify you as a user on a Playforge Service. We may use or display your username for the purposes of rankings, competitions or sweepstakes, chat identification, and/or game high scores.
We may use other identifying information collected to calculate aggregate statistics about our user community or for security purposes.
If you access a Social Game, we may use your social networking site profile ID to link your social networking site account with your activities within the Social Game. We may use your social networking site first, last and user names and icon to identify you to the social networking site account you've linked to your activities within the Social Game, as well as for the purposes of rankings, competitions, sweepstakes, game high scores and/or identification to your social network.
