Privacy Policy


Effective Date: October, 2012
(Last Updated October, 2012) Please read the following Privacy Policy to understand how we use any information we may collect from you through our Social Network Applications.
Welcome to ConSciGames.com, a personal online service operated by ConScience ltd. ("CSG") which consists of software (CSG Apps) that was created by CSG and available through the Facebook social networking site.
(“CSG Apps”), any software running on CSG's servers, (“CSG Software”), content, related documentation, information on the CSG domain, and information made available by users to each other through the CSG Software (collectively, the “Service”). Your privacy is important to us and, as described in this Privacy Policy, we have designed the Service to protect information about you from unauthorized disclosure to others. This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use and, in certain circumstances, share your personally identifying information. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully, and if you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
By using the Service, you consent to the collection and use of your personal information as outlined in this Privacy Policy, as such policy may be amended from time to time. We may update the Privacy Policy and if we do, we will post a notice that changes have been made on the website ConSciGames.com You should visit this page periodically to review any changes to the Privacy Policy.
Collection of Data
ConSciGames gives you a number of options regarding what information you will give us:
When you register a profile with CSG, your profile including any information (name, address, gender) will be registered with CSG.
When you identify yourself on a CSG site, you may identify yourself using a CSG account.
When you identify yourself on a CSG site, you may identify yourself through a social network account in which CSG may receive additional information about your profile.
In each case, we will collect and record the information you have provided. Other than names and email addresses provided at your discretion, we don't generally collect any “Personally Identifying Information” about our users (such as social security number, telephone number, street address, drivers license number, etc.), exception being for billing and payments where we store your billing information such as name, street address, phone number. We may offer you the opportunity to submit other information about yourself (such as gender, age, occupation, hobbies, interests, zip code, etc.), or we may be able to collect that information from social networking systems on which you have used CSG Games or CSG Apps (in accordance with the terms of use of those systems), which would then also be covered by this Privacy Policy.
In addition to information about yourself, you may choose to share information about yourself in other content ("Content"), such as in games. Any action you perform with other players are considered public, and at your own discretion.
When you use an CSG App on your social network page or use an CSG App on someone else's page, we may record information regarding the use of that CSG App, and we may collect other information that is visible on your social network page in accordance with the relevant terms of use associated with that page.
Note that since most CSG Software is served through CSG Apps, it is your responsibility to read and accept their Terms of Use, as well as Privacy Policy prior to continuing.
When you invite new members into your network or send messages through the Service, we collect and maintain on secure servers the information associated with those messages, including email addresses and content.
We may use information about you that we collect from other sources, including but not limited to newspapers and Internet sources such as blogs, instant messaging services, CSG games and other users of CSG, to supplement your profile.
CSG may contain links to other websites. We are of course not responsible for the privacy practices of other web sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by CSG.
You should also be aware that most content delivered through CSG games originates with another content provider. Such other content providers may place “cookies” on your browser, or otherwise gather information about you, including by asking you to provide information through the site itself.
Finally, in order to provide the best possible service and to allow us to make certain internal reports and make recommendations, we collect aggregate information about the use of the Service, including information about users accessing the ConSciGames site or playing ConSciGames games or using SNS Apps on other sites, such as internet protocol addresses, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, other browser history, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time (“Activity Information”).

How We Use Your Information
We do not sell or rent your “Personally Identifiable Information” to any third party except as described below. We may, however, use certain information about you that is not personally.
We use public information collected to determine the kinds of content that you would like to view and to assist any advertisers in targeting their advertising.
We also use your name, email address and other information on our system to notify you of new product releases, service notifications, and to solicit your feedback and input. Those emails will contain an “unsubscribe” link should you ever decide you do not want to receive further emails. Additionally CSG may by itself or via partnerships with a third party, provide you with offers that we may deem interesting. Again these emails will contain an "unsubscribe" link.
You understand and agree that we may access, preserve, and disclose any information we may have about you and the contents of your account if required to do so by law or in a good faith belief that such access, preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to avoid liability, to comply with legal process, such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, or court order, or to protect our rights and property, or that of our affiliates or the public. CSG is not required to question or contest the validity of any search warrant, subpoena or other similar governmental request that CSG receives.
CSG may maintain copies of your Content indefinitely, or delete certain Content in whole or in part if CSG determines, in its sole discretion, that such Content constitutes an "Infringing Posting" or a "Prohibited Posting" as defined in our Terms of Use or for any or no reason.
We also use non-Personally Identifiable Information and certain technical information about your computer and your access of the Service (including your internet protocol address) in order to operate, maintain and manage the Service.
CSG may disclose information about you to its partners in order to provide the Service or to those partners who have sponsored the Service for them to market their associated services to you,, resolve service problems and correct errors in the Service, to communicate with you about the Service, to provide you with advertising and promotional information in connection with the Service, and to enhance your experience on the Service. However, we do not give our partners an independent right to share this information.
Due to our contractual obligations with these third parties and the need to share information to deliver and support the Service, we cannot provide you with the opportunity to opt-out of sharing information (whether Personally Identifiable Information or other information) with these third parties.
CSG, certain of its partners, and each of their contractors and employees may view the Content that you transmit to the service to provide the Service and otherwise perform the tasks set forth in this Privacy Policy.
Controlling Your Personal Information
Be advised that if you send messages or post material containing personal information, that information may be collected and used by others.
You can terminate your account at any time which will remove your profile and other personal information from view. CSG, however, may (but is not obligated to) keep information about you that is on its system following your termination. Please contact CSG to terminate your account or for any other questions about your personal information.
Transfer of Information
We reserve the right to transfer your personal information in the event of a transfer of ownership of CSG or the acquisition of substantially all the assets of CSG related to the business which collected such information, such as acquisition by or merger with another company. In such an event, CSG will notify users who have provided email addresses when information about those users is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.
Others' Information
You may decide to provide us with another person's email address so that person may be invited to join CSG or so that we may facilitate your communication with other people through the Service (such as when you upload an address book).
You may also provide us with another person's contact information for purposes of delivering information through CSG Apps. We use this information to contact and, if necessary, remind that person that he or she has been invited to join CSG or received content through an SNS App. All invitees are provided with the option not to receive further invitations from CSG. We may disclose such information if required to do so in order to comply with legal process, as described above.
Cookies
The Service sends "cookies" to your computer when you access the CSG site, or otherwise view content through a CSG game, or use an SNS App and the Service uses such cookies as described in here. The Service uses cookies to improve the quality of our service, make recommendations, and make the Service easier to use for our users. A cookie is a small text file recorded on your hard drive that identifies you as a unique user and contains certain information about your particular login session and/or your use of the Service.
Use of Information
CSG may contain links to other web sites, and content in CSG game and CSG Apps may be hosted by other web sites. In addition, as described above, most content offered through CSG games or CSG Apps is served or hosted by other sites. These other sites maintain their own policies regarding cookies and the collection and use of personal information. It is up to you to review those policies yourself.
Third-Party Advertising Companies
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on our site and on certain CSG games and CSG Apps. Our system and the third-party advertising technology uses information derived from Activity Information, CSG's cookies on your hard drive, your visits to our site, the CSG games that you view and the CSG Apps you use to target advertising within our site or CSG games or CSG Apps. In addition, our advertisers may use other third-party advertising technology to target advertising on our site and other sites. In the course of advertisements being served to you, a unique third-party cookie or cookies may be placed on your computer. Similarly, third-party advertising companies may provide us with pixel tags (also called “clear gifs” or “beacons”) to help manage and optimize our online advertising. Beacons enable us to recognize a browser's cookie when a browser visits the site on which the beacon is located, and to learn which banner ads bring users to a given site.
CSG does not provide any Personally Identifiable Information to third-party advertising companies. Note, however, that if an advertiser asks CSG to show an advertisement to users with certain characteristics (for example, women ages 18-24) or a segment of that group (for example, women ages 18-24 who have viewed certain categories of content) and you respond to that advertisement, the third-party advertising company may conclude that you have the characteristics of the audience that they are trying to reach.
Security
CSG takes appropriate precautions to protect our users' information. Your account information is located on a secured server behind a firewall. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number or your password), we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). (To learn more about SSL, go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_Sockets_Layer). Because email and instant messaging are not recognized as secure communications, we request that you not send private information to us by email or instant messaging services. If you have any questions about the security of ConSciGames Web Site, please contact us at support@conscigames.com
