When we contact you for the first time after your donation or purchase, we will give you the option to choose not to be contacted in this manner again.

Non-personal browsing and site usage information that we collect: When you use the Websites, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) may collect information indirectly and automatically (through, for example, the use of your “IP address”) about your activities while visiting the Websites, including the web pages you view and the times you view them and information about the browser you are using. We do not link browsing information to the personal information you submit to us; we use this browsing information for internal purposes such as to help understand how the Websites are being used and to improve it, and for systems administration purposes. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. In some cases your IP address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if you use a consumer Internet access provider, your IP address probably varies from session to session.

The disclosures we may make of personal information: In general, it is not Mr. Phil Games’ practice to disclose personal information to third parties. We may share personal information in two instances.

Firstly, Mr. Phil Games may share personal information with our contractors and service providers in order to maintain, enhance, or add to the functionality of the Websites.

Secondly, we may share personal information with third parties such as the government or other entities when required to by law or as required by court order.

The security of personal information collected via the Websites: Mr. Phil Games has implemented reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized access to and unlawful interception or processing of personal information that Mr. Phil Games stores and controls. However, no website can fully eliminate security risks. Third parties may circumvent our security measures to unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. We will post a reasonably prominent notice to the Websites if any such security breach occurs.

Questions? If you have questions about this Privacy Policy, please contact us by email (see http://www.MrPhilGames.com/Company.aspx.)

We hope this policy clarifies our procedures regarding your personal information.

Mr. Phil Games may revise this policy at any time by updating this posting.
