Flowerpot Games's primary objective in collecting user information is to provide and enhance the Service and to enable users to easily navigate and enjoy the Service.
The types of personal information collected in accordance with the activities listed above may vary depending on the activity. This "personal information" is defined as information about you that can be used to contact or identify you. Personal information may include: (1) your name, (2) SN Website user identification number, (3) or email address. Additionally, we may acquire information from you through (1) your access and participation in message boards on the Service (2) your email of a question to our customer support or (3) your purchase of a virtual product of any type. Please note that because a third party site manages the purchases of virtual goods offered by the Service, we do not have access to your credit card details and billing information.
Flowerpot Games may also invite you to share non-personal information about yourself which may include but is not limited to: (1) your age or date of birth; (2) your gender; (3) information about the hardware you may own; (4) your favorite websites, friend information and fan pages (collectively referred to as "non-personal information"). If non-personal information is collected for an activity that also requires personal information, Flowerpot Games may combine your non-personal information with your personal information in an attempt to provide you with a better user experience, to improve the quality and value of the Services and to analyze how our Service is used.
The Service will also record game play information such as your high scores or game session duration.
When you register and use The Service, you may voluntarily provide, and Flowerpot Games may collect, personal and non-personal information in the form of website registration data (name, email, etc), and other data necessary to fulfill your requests, participate in game-specific services, and participate in special services such as newsletter subscriptions, "email this page" features, technical support, demos, downloads, polls, surveys, contests, sweepstakes, or other promotions. Flowerpot Games may also passively collect certain information about your use of the Service, such as the pages you visit and the features you use (see "Cookies" below).
A Special Note about our Message Boards and Chat Rooms: Whenever you give out personal information in public areas such as on a message board, that information can be collected and used by other people. While we strive to protect those who wish to participate in these services, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you post in these areas.
Finally, any time you access the Service, we may collect aggregate information including but not limited to internet protocol addresses, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, 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 of this activity. We use this information to better tailor the Service to your interests, to provide you more efficient customer support, and to overall enhance the Service.
In all cases of data access and collection, the information you provide will not be disclosed, rented, leased, loaned, sold, or otherwise voluntarily distributed to unaffiliated third parties and will be used solely for the purpose of providing you with and improving the Service.
You understand and agree that we may be required to disclose any personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to avoid liability, to comply with legal process, including but not limited to a search warrant, subpoena, statute, or court order, or to protect our rights and property, or that of the public. Note that Flowerpot Games is not required to question or contest the validity of any search warrant, subpoena or other similar governmental request that Flowerpot Games may receive.
Additionally, in the event of a merger, acquisition, reorganization, bankruptcy, or other similar event, customer information may be transferred to Flowerpot Games's successor or assignee, if permitted by and done in accordance with applicable law.
A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer's hard disk, generally to quickly identify a user's computer and to "remember" things about the user's visit, such as your preferences or a user name and password. The Service sends cookies to your computer when you access or view content of a Flowerpot Games website or game. Information contained in a cookie may be linked to your personal information for purposes such as improving the quality of our service, tailoring recommendations to your interests, and making the Service easier to use. You can disable cookies at any time, although you may not be able to access or use features of the Service.
Flowerpot Games may also keep track of your Internet Protocol (IP) and computer MAC addresses for various reasons. An IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer every time you log on to the Internet. A computer MAC address identifies one specific piece of hardware.
Other information that may be passively collected by Flowerpot Games includes log files that record website activity, including how many "hits" a particular web page is getting (a.k.a. "navigational data"). These entries are generated anonymously and enable Flowerpot Games to assess overall online activity and a user's browsing habits, track interest in advertised sales, and troubleshoot technical concerns. We also use the log file entries for our internal marketing and demographic studies, so we can constantly improve the online services we provide you.
The Service may contain links to other websites. The fact that the Service links to a website or presents a banner ad or other type of advertisement does not mean that Flowerpot Games endorses or authorizes that third party, nor is it a representation of our affiliation with that third party. Flowerpot Games is in no way responsible for the privacy policies of these other websites to which you chose to access from the Service. Please be sure to read the privacy policies of those websites when exiting the Service.
If for any reason you wish to view, correct or delete the personal information collected about you, please contact us and we will attempt to accommodate your request if we are not legally obligated to retain the record.
We have put in place reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. However, no system can be 100% secure and there is the possibility that despite our reasonable efforts, there could be unauthorized access to your information. By using our services, you assume this risk.
Also please note that email and messaging systems are not considered secure, so we discourage you from sending us personal information through these mediums.
The Service is not geared toward children under the age of 13 and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If we learn that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information we will delete such information from our files as quickly as possible.
