Gaming Lounge recognizes the importance of protecting information collected from users and has adopted this privacy policy to inform users about how Gaming Lounge gathers, stores, and uses information derived from their use of Gaming Lounge products, services and online sites.

Collection of Information

By using Gaming Lounge’s online site, products, and services, users agree that Gaming Lounge collects and processes the personally identifiable information (as defined below) they provide by creating a Gaming Lounge account, free or by purchasing or selling subscriptions, or during any exchange with Gaming Lounge in connection with the use of their Gaming Lounge account. Gaming Lounge will not share any personally identifiable information with other parties except as described in this policy.

Gaming Lounge also processes anonymous data, aggregated or not, in order to analyze and produce statistics related to the habits, usage patterns, and demographics of users as a group or as individuals. Such anonymous data does not allow the identification of the users to which it relates.

Personally Identifiable Information

“Personally identifiable information” is information that can be used to uniquely identify a user such as name, address or credit card number. You may be asked to provide personally identifiable information during the sign in process, and then in connection with the use of Gaming Lounge’s products, services and online sites.

While Gaming Lounge collects personally identifiable information on a voluntary basis, for certain products and services Gaming Lounge’s collection of personally identifiable information may be a requirement for access to the product or service or to process a user’s order.

Use of personally identifiable information

Personally identifiable information is used internally by Gaming Lounge to deliver, develop and improve products, content and services, to which users have subscribed, and to answer users’ requests.

Gaming Lounge may use personally identifiable information provided by users to send them information about Gaming Lounge, including news about product updates, contests, events, and other promotional materials, but only if the users agree to receive such communications. Gaming Lounge will not share any personally identifiable information with third parties for marketing purposes without your consent.

When you create a Gaming Lounge account, Gaming Lounge collects a user’s email address and username, and at the user’s option, first and last name. Depending on their settings, users agree that some of this information may be searchable and available to other users within Gaming Lounge. Gaming Lounge has no obligation to keep private personally identifiable information that a user makes available to other users via Gaming Lounge or other Gaming Lounge software, such as in forums, multiplayer chat or other public functions.

External websites and companies with links to and from Gaming Lounge’s online sites and products may collect personally identifiable information about users when users visit their websites. Third party publishers may also collect personally identifiable information as a requirement of accessing their games or content. Gaming Lounge’s privacy policy does not extend to external websites and companies or third party publishers with links to or from Gaming Lounge’s products and online websites or who collect personally identifiable information through their game available on Gaming Lounge. Please refer directly to these companies and websites regarding their privacy policies.

Gaming Lounge may release personally identifiable information to comply with court orders or laws that require us to disclose such information. In the event of a reorganization, sale or merger we may transfer personally identifiable information to the relevant third party with the user’s consent if required by law.

Children Under The Age of 13

Gaming Lounge will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from any person under the age of 13. Gaming Lounge encourages parents to instruct their children to never give out personal information when online. Parents who are concerned about the transfer of personal information from their children may contact us.

Cookies and Other Information on a User’s Machine

Gaming Lounge’s products, services and sites may employ cookies and other technologies. Cookies are bits of electronic information that can be transferred to a user’s hard drive to customize a person’s use of a product or online site, keep records of a user’s access to an online site or product, or store information needed by the user on a regular basis. Use of cookies is typically associated with websites. For example, when you sign in to Gaming Lounge, Gaming Lounge stores your user id and a combination of your IP address and time of login as a cookie on your hard drive. This cookie allows you to move from page to page without having to sign in again on each page. Similarly, if you enter information during your session, such as age verification data, this will be stored as a cookie and you will not have to re-enter such information during that session. We may also use third party web site analytic tools that employ cookies to collect certain non-personally identifiable information concerning use of our websites, such as referring web site addresses, page views and browser types.

However, users can disable cookies by changing their browser settings.

Chat Forums, Etc.

Gaming Lounge’s products or services may provide chat, forums, bulletin boards, or instant messaging tools to users. Any information that is disclosed in chat, forums or bulletin boards should be considered public information, and users who message one another may not know each other personally. Gaming Lounge has no obligation to keep private personally identifiable information that a user makes available to other users or the public using these functions. Users should exercise caution when deciding to disclose personal information in public forums. Users should also be aware that game play information disclosed during multiplayer game play (e.g. player name and current player statistics) is public information and may be displayed to other users.

Choice/Opt-out

Gaming Lounge gives users the option to receive promotional email communications from Gaming Lounge. Users may opt out of these communications. Instructions for discontinuing receipt of promotional email communications from Gaming Lounge will be provided in email communications to users.
