Collection of Personally Identifiable Information and Other Data
To register an Account with Foosler, you must provide a user name and password and a legitimate email address that you control, and verify that you are over the age of 18. We may also allow you to register for your Account using your login credentials from certain third party platforms (“Third Party Platforms”), such as Facebook, Twitter or Amazon. Your user name will be available to other Foosler users, including while you participate in Competitions. Your username, name, password and any email address that you provide to us are collectively referred to as your “Account Information”.
If you choose to participate in a Cash Competition, we will ask you to submit your credit card information or your Paypal user name. To participate in Cash Competitions and withdraw funds, we also require that you provide certain personally identifiable information, including your first and last name, mailing address, phone number and Social Insurance Number (collectively, your “Personally Identifiable Information”). If you are a resident of the United States, your Personally Identifiable Information may include your Social Security Number. Your Personally Identifiable Information is used to verify your identity when you withdraw cash from your Account and by us and certain third party service providers to monitor for fraudulent activity and verify that you can legally participate in Cash Competitions and withdraw funds. By providing Personally Identifiable Information, you represent to us that it is accurate and complete, and agree to promptly update the information as necessary to ensure that your Personally Identifiable Information remains current. We reserve the right to terminate your access to the Services if for any reason we suspect that you have provided inaccurate Personally Identifiable Information. You should carefully review the User Terms of Service because they include an agreement from you to indemnify Foosler from any losses that result from you providing inaccurate Personally Identifiable Information.
We may ask for your opinion about the Services from time to time. We may request and/or collect information from you on a voluntary basis when you:
• Create your Account
• Withdraw or deposit cash from your Account*
• Enter a delivery and billing address to withdraw cash from your Account
• Participate in Competitions or otherwise use the Services
• Send questions or comments to our support team
• Fill out online surveys
*Foosler will use third party credit card processing companies to process your transactions. When using a third party processing company, we will not have access to your credit card data.
We may also use technology, such as cookies, transparent gifs, frames, server log analysis and other technologies as they are developed, to enhance your experience with the Services. We automatically collect certain aggregate information and analytical data related to your Software usage. Aggregate information is non-personally identifiable or anonymous information about you, including the date and time of your visit, the phone network associated with your mobile device, your mobile device’s operating system or platform, the type of mobile device you use, your mobile device’s unique device ID and the Software features you accessed.
With your consent and in connection with your use of the Software, we may use GPS technology (or other similar technology) to determine your location information in order to determine those aspects of the Services you are permitted to use. You have the right to opt out of having this information collected, by disabling location access to any Foosler-enabled game through the Settings menu on your device. If you disable your location information, then you will not be eligible to participate in Cash Competitions.
Special Notice Regarding Minors Under 18 Years of Age
Foosler recognizes the sensitivity of personal information concerning minors under the age of 18.
The Services are not directed towards young children or minors under the age of 18. We are intent on complying with applicable laws and regulations regarding minors, including the United States’ Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. Specifically, we will not knowingly collect and maintain any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 18.
If you are a parent or guardian who has discovered that your child has submitted his or her personal information, we will make reasonable efforts to delete the information from our database, at your request. To request the deletion of your child’s information, please send an email to email@example.com. Be sure to include in your message the username, email address and password that your child submitted.
Use of Information Collected
We disclose information, including Personally Identifiable Information, that we, in good faith, believe is appropriate to cooperate in investigations of fraud or other illegal activity, or to conduct investigations of violations of our User Terms of Service.
We disclose information, including Personally Identifiable Information, in response to a subpoena, warrant, court order, attachment, order of a court-appointed receiver or other comparable legal process, including subpoenas from private parties in a civil action. If the subpoena seeks information about an identified user or limited group of users, we will make reasonable business efforts to contact the user(s) before providing information to the party that requests it. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to contact the user(s) in all cases, whether because of a time limit, court order, inability to effectively contact a user or for any other reason.
Your Account Information and certain Personally Identifiable Information is transmitted to a third-party service provider for the purpose of processing payments. The transmission of your payment information is automatic, and at no point do we, or any of our agents or employees, have the ability to review, access or retain such payment information. For more information on how your payment information is processed, please see the terms and conditions of our third party service provider https://stripe.com/terms. If you elect to process payments using your Paypal account, then your payments will be subject to Paypal’s terms of service, located at https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?&cmd=_render-content&content_ID=ua/UserAgreement_full.
Use of Cache Data
A cache is a component of your mobile device that transparently stores data for record-keeping purposes. Cache data does not identify users, but does identify your mobile device. Most browsers and applications are initially set up to accept such data. If you prefer, you can program your mobile device so that it does not store this information while utilizing the Software. Certain features of the Software may only be available through the collection of such data. We may use such data to assist in data collection and to track software usage and trends to help us better serve you. We also permit third parties who have entered into confidentiality agreements to access such data to help us monitor use of the Software for fraud or any other activity that does not comply with applicable laws.
The security of your account relies on your protection of your password and mobile device. You are responsible for maintaining the security of your password and mobile device. You are solely responsible for any and all activities that occur under your Account. You must not share your password or the Software with anyone. We will never ask you to send your password or other sensitive information to us in an email, though we may ask you to enter this type of information on the Software interface.
Any email or other communication requesting your password or asking you to provide sensitive account information via email should be treated as unauthorized and suspicious and should be reported to us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do share your password or your mobile device with a third party for any reason, the third party will have access to your account and your personal information, and you may be responsible for actions taken using your password. If you believe someone else has obtained access to your password, please change it immediately. If you believe that an unauthorized access has already occurred please report it immediately at email@example.com.
Postings to Public Forums
All postings in our public forums will generally be available to, and freely accessible by, other users of these forums as well as the Internet general public. Therefore, you should not expect that any information you post will be kept private or confidential and should exercise discretion when using these public forums. Additionally, your username, which you can change, will always be included in conjunction with your postings in the public forums. We are not responsible for events arising from the distribution of any information that you choose to post publicly or share through these forums. All information or materials uploaded by you while utilizing the Services is subject to our User Terms of Service.
Maintaining and Updating Your Account Information
As part of your use of the Services, you are responsible for maintaining and updating, as applicable, your Account Information with current and complete information. You may edit and delete portions of your Account Information. To do this, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
After receiving any requested changes to your Account Information or Personally Identifiable Information, we will make reasonable efforts to ensure that all of your personal information stored in databases we actively use to operate the Services will be updated, corrected, changed or deleted, as applicable, as soon as reasonably practicable. However, we reserve the right to retain in our archival files any information we remove from or change in our active databases. We will retain certain Account Information in order to comply with applicable laws. We may also retain such information to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems or enforce our User Terms of Service. In addition, it may not be technologically possible to remove every record of the information you have previously provided us, as a copy may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to locate.
