1.1 Our Websites offer a diverse, current, and exciting mix of online games created by CEI, as well as games created by independent developers and CEI partners. Players can access our Websites to play games; however, they need to register.
The information that our Websites collect includes (among others) 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) to operate and improve offerings on the Websites;
(b) to help authenticate you when you are on the Websites;
(c) to remember your preferences and registration information, as applicable;
(d) to present and help measure and research the effectiveness of CEI's offerings, advertisements, and email communications; and
(e) to customize the content and advertisements provided to you through the Websites.
2.4 CEI may also use third-party payment service providers ("PSP"), offering payment transaction services to CEI in order to sell a product or service through the Websites. Whenever you buy something from the Websites (e.g., a virtual game item or a subscription for a game download), the information that you provide to the PSP is subject to their privacy policies, not ours. You explicitly consent that CEI may provide personal information collected from you to a PSP for the purpose of the offering of the payment-transaction service whenever you buy something from the Website(s) and that such PSP may use such data for (statistical) analysis of payment transactions. CEI shall be allowed to notify a PSP regarding a user that engages in (or who a party believes has engaged in) any activity that is illegal, that violates any person's rights, or that led to 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 sent. You can opt out of receiving cookies from certain third-party advertising networks by resetting your browser. However, keep in mind that some features and services may not function properly if cookies are disabled.
b) Personal Data, Including Your E-mail Address
2.7 You may choose to register with us and/or to create a public or semi-public profile for participating in social gaming networks. 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 an email address and possibly certain personal information, such as a username, date and month of birth. The information you disclose in that respect may also become publicly accessible. We allow you to choose the information you provide to friends and networks through our Websites. When your privacy settings permit it, other users may be able to see and supplement your profile (e.g., 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 person who uses the Websites.
2.9 We only collect email addresses that were provided to us directly by you. Your email address will only be used for the following purposes:
(i) the promotion of (new) games and special offers of CEI and affiliates;
(ii) service emails (on updates, new design, new features, etc.);
(iv) delivering messages you have allowed us to pass on (e.g., from other people in your social network).
2.10 Without your approval, we will not:
(a) make your email address visible on the Website;
(b) use your email address for purposes other than those described in article 2.9 hereof;
c) Combination of Personal Data
2.11 For optimizing our services and the Websites, and for the purposes mentioned in this article 2, we are entitled to combine your personal data (including your email address, as applicable) with other information about you collected by or provided to us.
3.1 CEI may provide information to any party whose services it engages for the purposes of its normal operations (for example, those partners who assist us by providing technical or operational facilities for the Websites and so forth). We may also supply information to other parties if we are required to do so by law or by a ruling handed down by a court of law. CEI does not provide personal details to other parties for commercial, advertising, or marketing purposes, except if you explicitly give us permission to do so, or if doing so is part of a specific program or operation for which you have registered. In such case, you may withdraw your permission at any time.
5.1 Your personal data will be stored by CEI.
5.2 CEI does not keep a personal profile on the websites to protect your security.
6.2 The Internet is a global environment, and using the Internet necessarily involves the collection and processing of personal data on an international basis. Therefore, by using (one or more of) our Websites, you acknowledge and agree to our processing of personal data in this way.
