(“WIRE”), its parent and its subsidiaries respect the privacy rights of our users and are committed to protecting the information collected through its online products, online services and websites including, but not limited to WIRE’s games (together “Services”). WIRE has adopted this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) to explain how WIRE collects, stores, and uses the information collected in connection with WIRE’s Services.

Should you have any questions relating to this Privacy Policy, please contact us at support@wiremobile.us

BY INSTALLING, USING, REGISTERING TO OR OTHERWISE ACCESSING THE SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY AND GIVE AN EXPLICIT AND INFORMED CONSENT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT INSTALL, USE, REGISTER TO OR OTHERWISE ACCESS THE SERVICES. WIRE reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy at reasonable times, so please review it frequently. If WIRE makes material or significant changes to this Privacy Policy, WIRE may post a notice on WIRE’s website along with the updated Privacy Policy. Your continued use of Services will signify your acceptance of the changes to this Privacy Policy.

Non-personal data

For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “non-personal data” means information that does not directly identify you. Additionally, non-personal data means “aggregate” and “de-personalized” information, which is data WIRE collects about the use of WIRE Services, from which any personally identifiable data has been removed.

WIRE may use tools or third party analytical software to automatically collect and use certain non-personal data that does not directly enable WIRE to identify you. The types of non-personal data WIRE may collect and use include, but are not limited to: (i) device properties, including, but not limited to unique device identifier or other device identifier (“UDID”); (ii) device software platform and firmware; (iii) mobile phone carrier; (iv) geographical data such as zip code, area code and location; (v) game score and achievements; (vi) other non-personal data as reasonably required by WIRE to enhance the Services and other WIRE products and services.

WIRE may use and disclose to WIRE’s partners and contractors the collected non-personal data for purposes of analyzing usage of the Services, advertisement serving, managing and providing the Services and to further develop the Services and other WIRE services and products.

You recognize and agree that the analytics companies utilized by WIRE may combine the information collected with other information they have independently collected from other services or products relating to your activities. These companies collect and use information under their own privacy policies.

Ad Serving Technology

WIRE reserves the right to use and disclose the collected non-personal data for purposes of advertisement by WIRE or WIRE’s partners and contractors. WIRE may employ third party ad serving technologies that use certain methods to collect information as a result of ad serving through Services. WIRE or third parties operating the ad serving technology may use demographic and location information as well as information logged from your hardware or device to ensure that appropriate advertising is presented within the Service. WIRE or third parties may collect and use data for this purpose including, but not limited to IP address (including for purposes of determining your approximate geographic location), UDID, software, applications, hardware, browser information, internet and on-line usage information and in-game information. The foregoing data may be used and disclosed in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the privacy policy of the company providing the ad serving technology.

You recognize and agree that the advertising companies who deliver ads for WIRE may combine the information collected with other information they have independently collected from other services or products. These companies collect and use information under their own privacy policies. These ad serving technologies are integrated into Services; if you do not want to be subject to this technology, do not use or access Services. Although WIRE takes commercially reasonable steps to instruct such advertising companies to comply with the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy, WIRE does not have access to or control of third party technologies.

Personal Data

For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “personal data” means personally identifiable information that specifically identifies you as an individual.
Likely situations when you make personal data available to WIRE include, but are not limited to: (i) registration for Services, contests and special events; (ii) accessing Services using a third party ID, such as social networking sites or gaming services; (iii) subscribing to newsletters; (iv) purchasing a product or services through WIRE’s online stores; (v) using “tell a friend,” “email this page,” or other similar features; (vi) requesting technical support; and (vii) otherwise through use of WIRE Services where personal data is required for use and/or participation.

The types of personal data may vary depending on the type of activity you are engaged in.

If you choose to use WIRE’s “tell a friend” or a similar service about WIRE Services or order a gift certificate for your friend, WIRE will store your friend’s name and contact details that you provide to WIRE.

WIRE may use collected personal data for purposes of analyzing usage of the Services, providing customer and technical support, managing and providing Services (including managing advertisement serving) and to further develop the Services and other WIRE services and products. WIRE may combine non-personal data with personal data.

WIRE may use your personal data to send messages to you with informative and/or commercial content about WIRE’s services or third party products and services WIRE thinks may be of interest to you, such as new features and services, special offers and updated information.

Please note that certain features of the Services may be able to connect to your social networking sites to obtain additional information about you. In such cases, WIRE may be able to collect certain information from your social networking profile when your social networking site permits it, and when you consent to allow your social networking site to make that information available to WIRE. This information may include, but is not limited to, your name, profile picture, gender, user ID, email address, your country, your language, your time zone, the organizations and links on your profile page, the names and profile pictures of your social networking site “friends” and other information you have included in your social networking site profile. WIRE may associate and/or combine as well as use information collected by WIRE and/or obtained through such social networking sites in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Disclosure and Transfer of Personal Data

WIRE collects and processes personal data on a voluntary basis and it is not in the business of selling your personal data to third parties. Personal data may, however, occasionally be disclosed in accordance with applicable legislation and this Privacy Policy. Additionally, WIRE may disclose personal data to its parent companies and its subsidiaries in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

WIRE may hire agents and contractors to collect and process personal data on WIRE’s behalf and in such cases such agents and contractors will be instructed to comply with our Privacy Policy and to use personal data only for the purposes for which the third party has been engaged by WIRE. These agents and contractors may not use your personal data for their own marketing purposes. WIRE may use third party service providers such as credit card processors, e-mail service providers, shipping agents, data analyzers and business intelligence providers. WIRE has the right to share your personal data as necessary for the aforementioned third parties to provide their services for WIRE. WIRE is not liable for the acts and omissions of these third parties, except as provided by mandatory law.
WIRE may disclose your personal data to third parties as required by law enforcement or other government officials in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose you or WIRE to legal liability. WIRE may also disclose your personal data to third parties when WIRE has a reason to believe that a disclosure is necessary to address potential or actual injury or interference with WIRE’s rights, property, operations, users or others who may be harmed or may suffer loss or damage, or WIRE believes that such disclosure is necessary to protect WIRE’s rights, combat fraud and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on WIRE.

Data Retention and Correctness

WIRE retains the data collected pursuant to this Privacy Policy for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. Thereafter if the collected data is no longer needed for purposes specified in this Privacy Policy, WIRE deletes all aforementioned data in its possession. WIRE does not verify the correctness of personal data.

Even if data is changed or deleted, WIRE may still retain some of the data to resolve disputes, enforce WIRE user agreements, and comply with technical and legal requirements and constraints related to the security, integrity and operation of Services.
Cookies, beacons and tracking

The Services may use “cookies” and other technologies such as pixel tags, clear GIFs and web beacons. WIRE treats information collected by cookies and similar technologies as non-personal data.

E-mails and other electronic communications WIRE sends to you may contain code that enables WIRE to track your usage of the communication, including whether the communication was opened and/or what links were followed (if any). WIRE may combine that information to other information WIRE has about you and WIRE may use that information to improve the Services and/or provide customized communications to you.

WIRE is not responsible for the actions of those people or companies, the content of their products or services, the use of information you provide to them, or any products or services they may offer. The fact that WIRE is linking to those products or services does not constitute our sponsorship of, or affiliation with, those people or companies.

Safeguards

WIRE follows generally accepted industry standards and maintains reasonable safeguards to attempt to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of the information in WIRE’s possession. Only those persons with a need to process your personal data in connection with the fulfillment of their tasks in accordance with the purposes of this Privacy Policy and for the purposes of performing technical maintenance, have access to your personal data in WIRE’s possession. Personal data collected by WIRE is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the public. To prevent unauthorized on-line access to personal data, WIRE maintains personal data behind a firewall-protected server. However, no system can be 100% secure and there is the possibility that despite WIRE’s reasonable efforts, there could be unauthorized access to your personal data. By using the Services, you assume this risk.

You may choose to disclose data about yourself in the course of contributing user generated content to the Services. Any data that you disclose in any of these forums, blogs, chats or the like is public information, and there is no expectation of privacy or confidentiality. WIRE is not responsible for any personal data you choose to make public in any of these forums.

If you are under 15 years of age or a minor in your country of residence, please ask your legal guardian’s permission to use or access the Services. WIRE takes children’s privacy seriously, and encourages parents and/or guardians to play an active role in their children’s online experience at all times. WIRE does not knowingly collect any personal information from children below the aforementioned age and if WIRE learns that WIRE has inadvertently gathered personal data from children under the aforementioned age, WIRE will take reasonable measures to promptly erase such personal data from WIRE’s records.
WIRE may store and/or transfer your personal data to its affiliates and partners in and outside of EU/EEA member states and the United States in accordance with mandatory legislation and this Privacy Policy.

WIRE makes good faith efforts to enable you to review, update, correct or delete your personal data in WIRE’s possession. In order to do so, please contact WIRE at support@wiremobile.us. WIRE will need sufficient information from you to establish your identity and to verify your access request, and also to assist us in handling your request.

WIRE regularly reviews its compliance with this Privacy Policy. If WIRE receives a formal written complaint from you, it is WIRE’s policy to attempt to contact you directly to address any of your concerns.
