The information gathered by GirlGamer falls into two categories: (1) information voluntarily supplied by visitors to our websites when they register or initiate activity, and (2) tracking information gathered as visitors navigate through our sites.
To help make our sites more responsive to the needs of our visitors, help you navigate between sections, tailor content to your needs and to measure traffic within our sites, our web servers automatically collect limited information about your computer's connection to the Internet, including your IP address, when you visit our sites. They also invoke a standard feature of browser software, called a "cookie", to assign each visitor a unique, random number, a sort of user ID, which resides on your computer. The cookie helps give us an idea of which parts of our site users are visiting and doesn't actually identify the visitor, just the computer that a visitor uses to access our site.
Unless you voluntarily identify yourself (through registration, for example), we won't know who you are, even if we assign a cookie to your computer. The only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply. Our cookies can't read unrelated data from your computer. Linked content by third parties that provide products or services through our sites may also assign their own cookies to your browser, but we don't control their cookies or their processes, and they do not regularly share information they gather with us.
To make use of certain features on our websites visitors may need to register and to provide certain information as part of the registration process. We may also ask for information from those who use services or conduct other transactions on our websites. We may ask, for example, for your name, email address, street address, sex, age, city or town, zip code, and we sometimes request information on your interest in other topics.
The information you supply may help us to offer you more personalized features, to tailor our sites to your interests and make them more useful to you. Of course, even if you want to remain completely anonymous, you're still free to take advantage of the wealth of content available on our sites without registration. The vast majority of our site does NOT require visitors to complete a registration form or give us contact information (such as a name and email address) to visit.
The more we know about our visitors the more value we can potentially offer them. Supplying such information is entirely voluntary. But if you don't supply the information we require, we may be unable to provide you with services we make available to other visitors to our sites.
We also use customer contact information from the various registration forms, opt in features and service features to send the user information about our site, our company and our affiliates. Users may opt-out of receiving routine future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below
This site may contain links to other sites. The establishment of a link is from an endorsed website reviewed by GirlGamer but due to the changing face of online content and other unforeseeable events the content of these links may become altered and GirlGamer does not claim to maintain current reviews of these sites. GirlGamer is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of linked Web sites.
Certain features of and portions on our site are also the result of special relationships, such as "Powered By" or Co-Branding or affiliate programs. These firms share varying amounts of information with us. You are encouraged to review the privacy policies of such providers before providing information to them.
This site has numerous security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. The measures include passwords, linkages to secure servers, encryption, backup tapes, and conventional locks and alarm systems. However we cannot guarantee that the measures in place have been, are now, or will remain adequate.
Until we can adequately provide the correct features that enable COPPA compliance, this Web site will be directed at adults, not children, and we do not seek to collect from children online contact information, or distribute to third parties any personally identifiable information from children, etc. We won't knowingly allow anyone under 13 to register with any of our sites or to provide any other personally identifying information without written approval of a parent or guardian. We do plan to provide full COPPA compliance in the near future.
Our site provides users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us and sites associated with us at the point where we request information about the visitor. This site gives users various options to discontinue to receive future communications from us. For example, our Newsletters have linkages or return addresses for recipients to direct that they unsubscribe.
If you have any questions about this privacy statement, which is effective January 1st, 2009, the practices of this site, or your dealings with this Web site, you can email .
