Zephyr Games Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy
Thank you for visiting Zephyr Games, Inc.. Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, and to help ensure a rewarding online experience for all visitors, we provide this Privacy Statement summarizing our online information practices and explaining the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. This Privacy Statement, where posted, applies to our information practices on Zephyr Games, Inc.’s Web Website (the “Website”) and for products and services we make available on various mobile devices or other platforms (“Apps”). This Privacy Statement does not apply to any other information collected by Zephyr Games, Inc. and its affiliated entities through any other means. Zephyr Games, Inc. and its affiliated entities are collectively referred to in this Privacy Statement as “Zephyr Games, Inc.,” “we” or “us.”
Zephyr Games, Inc. is committed to providing fun, safe and secure Website and Apps for people of all ages. We are dedicated to safeguarding all personal information collected online and to helping our visitors learn how to exercise control over personal information while exploring the Internet. Because many visitors to the Website are children, we make efforts to ensure that children access only the content that is appropriate for them. In addition, we employ special measures to help children protect their privacy while online. We do not ask children to disclose more personal information than is necessary for them to participate in a particular activity, and we take steps to prevent children from posting contact information.
As we continue to offer our visitors new and different types of content and services, we may modify our practices from time to time.

I. The Information We Collect
Our Website
At Zephyr Games, Inc., we do not collect personally identifiable information on our Website unless our visitors voluntarily provide it to us when you visit our Website, including when you participate in activities on our Website like sweepstakes, contests, games, informational and promotional offers, message boards, chat rooms, profile pages, social community environments, or other public forums, and when you provide information to our customer service representatives. For some activities, such as online polls or surveys, we may ask visitors to provide information that is not personally identifiable. This might include first name only, city or state of residence, age, gender, or a favorite cartoon character. For some other activities, such as entering sweepstakes and subscribing to our e-mail newsletters, we may ask visitors to provide a first name and e-mail address. For other activities, such as sending an electronic postcard or e-mail to a friend, we may also ask for personal information about other people. This is usually limited to a first name and e-mail address. E-mail addresses collected to send an electronic postcard or e-mail to a friend are deleted immediately when the requested postcard or e-mail is transmitted. For some limited activities, campaigns, or offers, intended for parents and adults, we may ask a parent or adult to provide their name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, credit card information, cable or satellite provider, and/or information about their interests in and use of various products, programs, and services. In order to provide appropriate customer service support for some features of our Website or improve our products, we may ask visitors to provide a first name, email address and limited information that is relevant to a customer service inquiry.
Visitors who order merchandise or other materials from the Website or participate in certain interactive features will be required to provide their full name, billing and mailing addresses, e-mail address, telephone number and a credit card number. If an order is being shipped to a third party, we will also need the recipient’s name and mailing address. Before collecting information in connection with an e-commerce order, we will verify the validity of the purchaser’s credit card. On occasion, we might solicit additional voluntary information regarding shoppers’ personal shopping preferences.
When a child under age thirteen participates in another ongoing activity on a Site that requires the collection, retention, and use of personal information, we will also ask for a parent’s e-mail address so that we can notify the parent that we have received personal information from their child. We do not knowingly collect names and e-mail addresses from children under age thirteen for these types of activities without notifying the parent via e-mail and giving the parent the option to remove their child’s e-mail address from the applicable database for that activity. For specific one-time requests we receive from visitors on Website, e-mail addresses are collected and used only in connection with the specific one-time request. For example, for sweepstakes and contests, e-mail addresses are collected for the purpose of entering the online sweepstakes or contest on a one-time basis and are used to notify winners of the sweepstakes or contest once by e-mail. Winners will be required to return a completed prize acceptance form contained in the notification e-mail by facsimile or U.S. mail within a designated time period (along with the signature of a parent or legal guardian for all minors).
In connection with registration for certain interactive online games or features on the Website, we may ask users to provide certain information that is not personally identifiable such as city or state of residence, date of birth and gender. For children under the age of thirteen, we will ask for the child’s e-mail address, which will not be stored in a retrievable form but instead using a “hash” or unique code generated from the e-mail address that will allow us on a one-time basis, for example, to respond to an inquiry from the child regarding a lost user name or password. We also may ask for a parental email address for children under age 13 who register in order to provide notice to the parent that his or her child would like to participate in registration for certain interactive features. For individuals age thirteen and over, we may collect and store an e-mail address to use in the case of forgotten passwords and to send newsletters and/or marketing information for which the individual has consented.
When visitors come to our Website, we also may collect some non-personally identifiable information such as the current Internet protocol address and the type of computer operating system you are using (e.g., Microsoft Windows or Mac OS), the type of browser you are using (e.g., Firefox, Internet Explorer), the domain name of the Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, Verizon), your activities while visiting our Website, your activities while playing games or utilizing services on our Website (e.g., which of our Web pages you viewed or which games you played), and the advertisements you have been shown.

Our Apps
Our Apps generally include features, functionality and content such as games, videos, and activities. Zephyr Games, Inc. does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 in our Apps. The data collected in an App may vary by App but will include any information a user provides once the user downloads and uses the App. For example, some of our Apps may require you to first register and create an account with us (e.g. user name, password, or email address) before you can use it. Other Apps may require additional information from you, such as transaction-related information (e.g. when you make purchases, respond to any offers) We may also use information you provide us to reach you when you contact us for help. If you interact with third-party social media Website and applications, we may have access to certain information from your social media account such as your user name, profile picture, information about friends and followers, and content posted or viewed through the social media. When you use social media networking platforms and plugins, you share your information with them and their use of the information will be subject to that social media site’s privacy practices. To help improve the design, functionality, performance, and content of our Apps, we usually collect certain information when you use the App on your mobile device, such as usage, viewing and technical data including the type of mobile device you use, your unique device ID, your device’s IP address, your mobile operator and operating system, the type of mobile Internet browsers you use, and information about the way you use the App. Our Apps usually do not collect precise information about the location of your mobile device, and only would do so if you are specifically prompted to provide your consent to do so. You can always manage your location preferences at any time by adjusting the settings on your device. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided Zephyr Games, Inc. with any personally identifiable information through an App without consent, please contact us at Info@zephyr-games.com so we can delete such information.

II. How We Use the Information
We use visitors’ personal information collected in connection with child-directed activities for internal purposes only, such as enabling visitors to enter our online contests or sweepstakes, to subscribe to an online newsletter, to provide customer service, and/or for the purposes for which you provided the information.

These notifications are sent only to those visitors and users to the Website or Apps who ask to receive them.
We use parents’ e-mail addresses to notify them when we have received personal information on Website such as e-mail addresses from their children on our child facing products to give parents the option to remove their child’s name from our lists. We use information we collect about others only to enable visitors to our Site to communicate with those other people, for example, by sending them electronic greeting cards or e-mail or to ship prizes received from contests or sweepstakes.
We do not keep any personal information we obtain through a contest or sweepstakes until we have successfully selected a winner(s), awarded the prize(s), and administered the contest or sweepstakes.

In these cases, we require the agent or contractor to keep the information confidential and to use it only for the specific services they are performing. We may on occasion combine information we collect through our Website with information that we collect from other sources. We sometimes use non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our Website, and to improve our visitors’ experience on the Website.

In addition, we may transfer personally identifiable information about you if we or one of our business units are acquired by, sold to, or merged with another entity.
