Our visitors' privacy is important to us, and we recognize the need to provide additional privacy protection for children on the Defy Sites permitting such visitors. Our privacy practices are guided by the United States' Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, as well as data privacy laws in the United States and other applicable countries. Younger visitors should always check with their parents or guardians before entering information on any website or mobile application and we encourage families to discuss their household guidelines regarding the online sharing of personal information.
WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT.
The Defy Sites collect only the information that is reasonably necessary for the activities available on the particular website. In general, we collect three types of information:
1. Information that you actively give to us (for example, during registration, sweepstakes, purchases or content submissions);
2. Information we automatically collect about your computer or wireless devices (such as your IP address, cookie ID, and other unique device identifiers); and
3. Information we collect from third parties, including through your registered third-party social media providers.
HOW WE STORE SUCH INFORMATION.
We store your information using reasonable security precautions and for only as long as we think reasonably necessary. Despite such precautions, there is always a chance that someone may impermissibly access your information. If you think a third party has accessed your information, please contact us immediately as instructed below.
HOW WE USE SUCH INFORMATION.
In general, the information we collect may be used to respond to your requests; enable you to take advantage of the Defy Sites' features and services; personalize your experience and the advertising you see; send you special offers and promotions from Defy, the Defy family of companies, and on behalf of third-parties whose products or services might be of interest to you; measure analytics; and manage and improve the services available on the Defy Sites.
INFORMATION WE SHARE WITH THIRD PARTIES.
Depending upon the circumstances, we may share collected information with (a) law enforcement or others as needed to protect or defend our rights and the rights of others; (b) third parties we hire to handle certain activities; (c) advertisers or third parties with whom we may partner to provide you additional content, products or services; (d) business partners who sponsor a sweepstakes or contest or who jointly offer a service or feature on the Defy Sites; (e) within the Defy family of companies; (f) in the event of a corporate transaction; and (g) otherwise with your consent.
WHAT INFORMATION OTHERS MAY COLLECT.
We may use a number of advertising networks, analytics service providers and other such companies to, for example, serve targeted advertisements or analyze the performance of the Defy Sites. These companies may use their own unique identifiers, and their use of these technologies is within their control and not ours. These companies may use the information they collect from you consistent with their own privacy policies, which we encourage you to review.
YOUR CONTROL OVER YOUR INFORMATION.
You have the right to access, update and correct factual inaccuracies in any personally identifiable information we collect about you.
You can stop the delivery of commercial e-mail messages from the Defy Sites by following the instructions in e-mails you receive.
You may have choices about the use of your information by third parties wishing to deliver certain targeted advertising to you.
Parents and guardians can review any personally identifiable information collected about their children and request that such information be deleted and/or that no further information be collected.
WHO WE ARE
The Defy Sites are made available by Defy. If you have any questions about our information handling practices, including our practices with respect to children's personal information, please contact us at:
Defy Media, LLC, 498 7th Avenue, 19th Floor, New York, NY 10018, Attn: Privacy. Or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Or call this number: +1 212-244-4307
I. INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE.
We may request or collect certain information when you visit the Defy Sites. However, visitors are required to share only the information that is reasonably necessary to participate in the particular activity.
A. Registration Information: The information required to register varies by Site, but may include: (a) birth date; (b) gender; (c) country; (d) state; (e) zip code; (f) user name and password; (g) wireless telephone number; (h) email address; and (i) other profile information such as avatar preferences, communications preferences, and interests. For certain countries, visitors will receive an activation email and must follow the procedures or otherwise agree to the terms within the activation email within a certain time period to activate the account; accounts not activated within that time period will be deleted.
Registration information is used to enable visitors to take advantage of site offerings; respond to visitor's requests for products, services, and information; manage games; serve appropriate material; customize the content you see when you visit the Defy Sites; and offer visitors special offers and promotions from the Defy Sites and the "Defy family of companies" (which comprises Defy Media, LLC and its subsidiaries and affiliates), as well as on behalf of selected third parties offering products, programs or services, that we believe may be of interest to you.
B. Social Platform Registrations and Social Media Plugins: Some of the Defy Sites permit or require users who are at least 13 years old to register or log into their account via a social networking platform such as Login with Facebook or Flux, or permit you to use social media plugins such as the Facebook "Like" or Google "+1" buttons. When you use these social networking platforms and plugins, your username and password for the services and other information available about you or collected from you on these services may be shared with us.
C. Computer Information Collected by Us: When visitors come to a Site, we may automatically collect certain information from their computers or mobile devices, such as the type of computer operating system (e.g., Windows XP or Mac OS), the visitor's IP address, the web browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome and Firefox), UDID (for certain mobile devices), information about the websites visited before and after visiting the Site, the web pages and advertisements viewed and links clicked on within the Defy Sites, interactions with e-mail messages sent by a Site or the Defy family of companies (e.g., links clicked on and whether the messages were opened or forwarded), information collected through the use of unique identifiers such as cookies (see below), information regarding the Internet service provider, and other standard server log information ("Computer Information").
We may use Tracking Technologies to help tailor our content, allow users to move between certain Defy Sites without logging into each Site, enable the internal functioning of the Defy Sites, understand Site and internet usage, improve or customize the content, offerings or advertisements on this Site, personalize your experience on the Site (for example, to recognize you by name when you return to the Site), understand your interactions with email messages originating from the Defy Sites or the Defy family of companies (such as the links clicked on and whether the messages were opened or forwarded), save your password, save your online game or video player settings, enable you to use shopping carts, help us offer you products, programs or services that may be of interest to you, deliver relevant advertising, maintain and administer the Defy Sites. These Tracking Technologies collect "click stream" data and additional other information regarding your visits to the Defy Sites (such as your visits to specific webpages, use of features, purchasing history or preferences), may collect such other information across multiple sessions on the Defy Sites and other websites offered by the Defy family of companies and may also collect your IP address or some other identifier unique to the device you use to access the site ("Identifier"). An Identifier may be automatically assigned to any device you use to access the Defy Sites.
By visiting a Site, whether as a registered user or otherwise, you acknowledge, understand and hereby agree that you are giving us your consent to set and access Cookies on your device and track your activities and your use of a Site through these Tracking Technologies and Identifiers and that we may use Tracking Technologies in the emails we send to you.
The Defy Sites adhere to the Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising; please click on the link thereto for more information about the Defy Sites and online behavioral advertising.
Our Third Party Advertising Service Providers (as defined in Section D) do not have access to Tracking Technologies set by the Defy Sites except to the extent necessary to provide services to the Site. The Third Party Advertising Service Providers, as well as advertisers, may themselves set and access their own Tracking Technologies on your Device if you choose to have Tracking Technologies enabled in your browser (or, for Flash cookies, if you have not removed them) and/or they may otherwise have access to other information about you.
You have a number of options with respect to the Tracking Technologies set by the Defy Sites:
Please note that deleting, rejecting, disabling or turning off Tracking Technologies through the above options will not remove Flash cookies. For more information about Flash cookies and how to remove them from your computer, please visit here
Please be aware that certain areas and features of the Defy Sites can only be accessed in conjunction with Tracking Technologies, and that disabling Tracking Technologies might prevent you from accessing such content.
D. Computer Information Collected By Others: Defy uses the services of third parties who may collect, use or disclose cookie information, IP addresses or other identifiers from devices and/or browsers of users who visit the Defy Sites. The Defy Sites use a variety of third-party advertising networks, data exchanges, traffic measurement service providers, marketing analytics service providers, and other third-party service providers (collectively, "Third Party Advertising Service Providers") to, for example, serve advertisements on the Defy Sites, facilitate targeting of advertisements, and measure and analyze advertising effectiveness and/or traffic on the Defy Sites ("Targeting Services"). These Targeting Services enable us to display advertisements based on your visits to the Defy Sites and other websites you have visited and may include delivering advertisements or other content for products and services that may interest you. Targeting Services also help prevent you from seeing repeated advertisements and enable us to research the usefulness of certain advertisements.
These Third Party Advertising Service Providers do not have access to Tracking Technologies set by the Defy Sites except to the extent necessary to provide services to the Defy Sites. The Third Party Advertising Service Providers, as well as advertisers, may themselves set and access their own Tracking Technologies on your device if you choose to have Tracking Technologies enabled in your browser (or, for Flash cookies, if you have not removed them) and/or they may otherwise have access to Other Information about you. In addition, Third Party Advertising Service Providers may collect aggregate log data separately and independently from what the Defy Sites collect.
You should be aware that different rules might apply to the collection, use or disclosure of your information by third parties in connection with their advertisements, promotions and other websites you encounter on the Internet. The use of such technology by these third parties is within their control and not the Defy Sites. Even if we have a relationship with the third party, we do not control those sites or their policies and practices regarding your information and those sites may use the information they collect from you consistent with their own privacy policies, which we encourage you to review. We encourage you to research and direct any of your questions in this regard to these third parties.
With respect to the Tracking Technologies set by Third Party Advertising Service Providers and advertisers (and outside the control of the Defy Sites), you have a number of options:
1. Delete existing Tracking Technologies through the "Internet Options" sub-option of the "Tools" menu option of your browser or otherwise as directed by your browser's support feature; and
2. Disable future Tracking Technologies by using the same browser controls. Additional information on disabling most Tracking Technologies may be available through your browser's support feature. (See the "help" section of your browser for more information.)
Do-Not-Track Signals and Similar Mechanisms. Some web browsers may transmit "do-not-track" signals to the websites with which the browser communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. There currently is disagreement, including among participants in the leading Internet standards-setting organization, concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals.
We currently do not take action in response to these signals, but, if and when a final standard is established and accepted, we may reassess how to respond to these signals. Instead, as set forth above, please see the link to the Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising program that we follow that offers you choice regarding Information collected for online behavioral advertising purposes and the browser cookie controls and other mechanisms described above in Section I(C).
E. Contests and Sweepstakes: The Defy Sites may offer online contests and sweepstakes. To enter these contests and sweepstakes, you may be required to provide your first name and email address and/or additional information required for the management of the contest or sweepstakes.
F. Electronic Postcards and Messages: Some Defy Sites provide visitors the opportunity to send electronic postcards and "wish lists" of items they want to family or friends, which means we will send, on the visitor's behalf, email messages to family and/or friends. To do so, visitors must provide the email address of the recipient of such electronic postcards or email messages. Visitors must only provide email addresses of people who they know would be happy to receive such electronic postcards or email messages. Email addresses provided to us for this purpose are used solely to send the requested postcard or email message and are deleted from our system once the postcard or message is sent. In some cases, we may offer visitors an incentive (e.g., points to be used in an online game) for referring information about products to the visitor's family or friends. In such cases, we will comply with all applicable legal requirements. Please note that this feature may not be available to visitors in certain regions or countries.
G. Electronic Newsletters: Visitors can provide their email addresses to receive email newsletters and promotions from Defy, the Defy family of companies, and our business partners. Visitors may change their preferences regarding emails at any time through the unsubscribe link in the newsletters or, for certain Defy Sites, by logging into and changing the preferences for their account.
H. Interactive Features and Services: Some of the Defy Sites offer interactive features and services, such as message boards, chat rooms, electronic mail services, comment boxes, messaging services, and member profile pages. We use the information collected through interactive features and services to enable you to participate in such features and services.
I. Wireless Marketing Services: Consistent with local law, appropriately aged visitors may have the opportunity to register for special promotions, services, news, programming and information delivered via text messaging and/or wireless devices. To do so, visitors may be asked to provide their telephone number, email address, carrier's name, and/or their opinion regarding certain goods and/or services. Visitors must opt in to receive wireless marketing material from businesses within the Defy family of companies through one of the following methods: (a) filling out the registration information on any of the Defy Sites' wireless marketing registration page; or (b) sending a specific word, code or symbol via a text message to a telephone number designated by us in any promotional material. The visitor may also be asked to confirm his or her acceptance to receive such wireless marketing services.
Visitors that register for wireless marketing services acknowledge, understand and agree that they will be charged by the visitor's wireless carrier for all messages sent to the visitor from the Defy Sites or Defy family of companies. Standard messaging rates will apply, unless noted otherwise. Under no circumstances will Defy or the Defy family of companies be responsible for any wireless email or text messaging charges incurred by such visitor or by a person that has access to a visitor's wireless device, telephone number, or email address.
K. Financial Information: We collect and use financial information, such as credit card numbers and security codes, for the limited purposes described below.
i. Arcades: Users who are of legal age to form a binding contract may purchase games available on the Defy Sites (e.g., games from Shockwave.com). Purchasing such games may require providing information to process the order including full name, billing and/or shipping addresses, billing address, email address, credit card number, control payment number, PIN, card security code, expiration date and/or a phone number. After successfully entering a valid credit card number/expiration date and completing the order process, an account is created. We use this information to process the order and to send order confirmations via email, as well as to send information about products and services of interest and as otherwise required by law. If you make purchases using a pre-paid card, we will not require you to enter any personally identifiable information to complete your purchase.
ii. Consumer Products: Certain of the Defy Sites provide pages and/or links to pages offering visitors who are of legal age to form a binding contract the opportunity to purchase consumer products (the "Shops"). To do so, visitors need to provide contact, shipping, billing and credit information. These pages may be hosted and operated by a third party that is independent and separate from the Defy Sites. This third party collects personal information about shop visitors and may share this information with us. We use this information to process the order and to send order confirmations via email, as well as to send information about products and services of interest and as otherwise required by law. Before providing information on these pages, we encourage you to review the posted privacy policies which govern such third party's use of your information, as they may differ from ours.
iii. Virtual Items/Memberships: Some of the Defy Sites may offer memberships, online subscriptions and/or virtual items for use in conjunction with the Defy Sites' games. When you enter into a transaction for a membership, subscription, virtual item or similar transaction, you may be asked to provide the credit card and/or billing information and email address. We will use this information to fulfill your specified requests, as well as to inform you about additional products or service opportunities and as otherwise required by law. Please also see the information regarding payment processors in Section II(B) below.
L. Other Data Collection and Use.
We collect search query information when visitors search for information on the Defy Sites. We also collect information from visitors when they contact us with questions and comments.
We may use this information, along with any of the other information described above, to (i) analyze use of the Defy Sites and understand and improve our service offerings; (ii) prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities; and (iii) for any other purposes disclosed to you at the time we collect your information or pursuant to your consent.
We may combine information collected through the Defy Sites with information we collect from other sources (e.g., social media integration services), other Defy family of company's sites, offline records or publicly available information). It is your responsibility to provide complete and accurate information and to keep such information up to date. We are not responsible for any problem or liability arising from your failure to do so.
II. DISCLOSURE TO THIRD PARTIES.
We may share your information with third parties for the limited purposes described below.
A. Law Enforcement and Safety.
If you have concerns about the conduct of a particular user, please send an e-mail to email@example.com. This email is not to contact us about the status of your account.
Information collected through the Defy Sites may be transferred, disclosed or shared with third parties engaged by us to handle and deliver certain activities, such as message boards, sweepstakes and contests, e-cards, payment processing, newsletters, and advisory boards, and to perform other technical and processing functions, such as sending postal mail and email, maintaining data integrity, programming operations, user services or technology services. We may provide these third parties information collected as needed to perform their functions, but they are prohibited from using it for other purposes and specifically agree to maintain the confidentiality of such information. Some of these agents, such as payment processors, may request additional information during the course of offering their services. Before you provide additional information to third party agents, we encourage visitors to review their privacy policies and information collection practices.
C. Third Parties/Advertisers.
Defy uses the services of third parties who may collect, use or disclose cookie information, IP addresses or other identifiers from devices and/or browsers of users who visit the Defy Sites. Some Defy Sites partner with outside third parties to provide you with additional content, products, or services that we believe may be of interest. For example, we may partner with a greeting card company, software manufacturer, social media plugin provider, mobile phone provider or cable television service provider to offer you electronic cards, games, social networking, text messaging services or customized video content. These partners operate websites and services that are separate and independent from the Defy Sites and, accordingly, may have their own privacy policies. If you consent or register with one of our partners, that means you grant the Defy Sites permission to give your registration and other information, including e-mail address, to that third party. If you have identified yourself as residing in the EU, we will not share your email address or other personally identifiable information with third parties for advertising purposes unless you have "opted-in."
In addition, Third Party Advertising Service Providers may use their own Tracking Technologies to gather information about you. Please see Section I(D) above for more detailed information regarding such use of Tracking Technologies.
For more information on our use of third party advertisers and the self-regulatory principles, please click here
D. Co-Branded Sites and Features
Some Defy Sites offer co-branded services and features, such as events and promotions that we put together with another company ("Co-Branded Partner"). Such services may be hosted on a Site and/or our Co-Branded Partner's website. We may share your information with our Co-Branded Partner and your voluntary use of or participation in a co-branded service or feature means that you opt-in and affirmatively consent to both the Defy Sites and our Co-Branded Partner collecting and using the information you provided during registration and/or in connection with the specific co-branded feature for fulfillment, marketing or administrative purposes. If you wish to opt-out of a Co-Branded Partner's future use of your information for marketing purposes, you will need to contact the Co-Branded Partner directly. The Co-Branded Partner will be identified on the co-branded feature or service.
E. Other Affiliated Businesses
The Defy Sites are part of the Defy family of companies. Where permitted by law, we may share information we collect about you within the websites of the Defy family of companies' and other affiliated businesses so that we can, for example, provide you with information about products and services that might interest you.
F. Business Transfer
In the event that assets relating to one or more of the Defy Sites are transferred or sold to another entity as a result of, for example, a corporate sale, merger, consolidation, asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy, information collected at the Defy Sites may be transferred to the acquiring company.
G. With Your Consent
We may otherwise disclose your information pursuant to your consent.
III. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFER.
IV. SECURITY, STORAGE AND RETENTION OF INFORMATION.
The Defy Sites maintain reasonable technical and organizational steps to help ensure that information collected is secure, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers and use of electronic security systems and password protections which guard against unauthorized access. The Defy Sites conduct financial transactions via secured transmissions. We limit access to visitor's information to employees and contractors who are authorized for the proper handling of such information, and any employee found violating our standards of security and confidentiality will be subject to our disciplinary processes. We also take reasonable steps to help make sure our third-party agents protect the security of your personal information. However, as with most Internet sites or services, it is possible that third parties may unlawfully access such personal information through a number of means despite our efforts.
V. ACCESSING AND CORRECTING INFORMATION; TERMINATION OF WIRELESS SERVICES.
A. Reviewing Your Information
You have the right to access, update and correct factual inaccuracies in personally identifiable information that we collect online at the Defy Sites, subject to certain exceptions. To do so, you should log into your account or you may e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. To help protect your privacy and the security of your personally identifiable information, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access.
B. Termination of Wireless Services
You may cancel one or more wireless services via your wireless device at any time by using the unsubscribe mechanism provided by the Defy Sites at the time the message is sent, or by sending a text message that says "STOP", "END", "CANCEL", "REMOVE", "UNSUBSCRIBE" or "QUIT". Defy Sites will terminate your registration for the most recent wireless service you received. Any of these words followed by the word "ALL" in the user's termination request will cancel all of the user's registered wireless services with the Defy Sites. If you unsubscribe from one or all of wireless service(s) via your wireless device, the service(s) will be terminated immediately and will cancel your previous opt-in.
VI. ONLINE SAFETY.
A variety of online resources offer you and your child an online safety guide which we encourage you to use as starting point for discussing safety and privacy concerns with your child. Of course, involvement in your family's online lives is the most important safety tool available. We encourage you to visit http://www.ncpc.org/topics/internet-safety as a starting point for more information.
VII. LINKS TO THIRD PARTIES.
The websites that comprise the Defy Sites may contain links to other sites, including those of sponsors, advertisers, social networking platforms, and survey companies. These other websites are governed by their own privacy policies or information collection practices, which may be substantially different from ours. We encourage visitors to other websites to review the privacy policies and information collection practices of those websites.
VIII. YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits our visitors who are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
