You may review, correct, or change your account information at any time by logging into your account. If you wish to cancel your account, please login to your account and follow the account closure process or e-mail us at support@pocket7games.net. 

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 appropriate and 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 may retain such information to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, and enforce our user agreements and policies, including 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.

VI. Data Security

We take precautions to protect your personal information. All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology. 

The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access our Services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share it with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to us; any transmission is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures incorporated on the Services.

VII. Ad Serving Technology

The Services may employ proprietary or third party ad serving technologies that use cookies, clear GIFs, web beacons, or other technologies to collect information as a result of ad serving through the Services. Pocket7Games or third parties operating the ad serving technology (each, a “Third Party Ad Server”) may use demographic and location information, as well as information logged from your hardware or device to ensure that appropriate advertising is presented within the Services and to calculate or control the number of unique and repeat views of a given ad, and/or deliver ads that relate to your interests and measure the effectiveness of ad campaigns. We or Third Party Ad Servers may collect data for this purpose, including your IP address, information about your software, applications and hardware, advertisement(s) served, in game location, length of time an advertisement is visible, other Internet and website usage information, domain type, size of the advertisement, advertisement response (if any), and angle of view. Note that if you click on an ad that appears on the Services, you acknowledge and agree as a result of how that technology works, your name or other identifying characteristics may be revealed to the advertiser (or the applicable Third Party Ad Server) through referrer headers (the URL transmitted by publishers when users click on ads).

You recognize and agree that the Third Party Ad Servers who deliver ads for Pocket7Games may combine the information collected with other information they have independently collected from other services or products. These companies collect and use information under their own privacy policies. These ad serving technologies may be integrated into the Services.

In addition, Pocket7Games uses pixels, or transparent GIF files, to help manage online advertising. These GIF files are provided by our ad management partners (each, a “Management Partner”). These files enable our Management Partners to recognize a unique cookie on your web browser. The cookie was placed by us, or by another advertiser who works with the applicable Management Partner. The Management Partner may set and access its own cookies on your web browser in order to serve ads it believes may be of interest to you based on the profile information you provided to us at registration (e.g., demographic information) as well as information collected about you by the applicable Management Partner elsewhere. Management Partners may use information about you gathered from the Services (including your demographic information provided to us upon registration as well as your browsing behavior) to serve third party ads to you elsewhere on the Internet. For more information about how cookies work, please visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s homepage at 

After you use the Services, our advertising partners may deliver Pocket7Games ads to your browser when you visit other sites on the Internet. These ads are delivered based on cookies that are set by us or by our third party advertising network partners when you visit or use the Services, and that are recognized by these companies when you visit other sites. 

VIII. Use of Cookies and Cache Data

We use cookies, cache, and similar technologies to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our Services. Most browsers and applications are initially set up to accept such data. If you prefer, you can program your device so that it does not store this information while utilizing the Application. Certain Application features may only be available through the collection of such data. We may use such data to assist in data collection and to track Application 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 Application for fraud or any other activity that does not comply with applicable laws.

Some of our business partners (e.g., analytical tracking software providers) use cookies and tracking technologies on the Application. We have no access to or control over these cookies or tracking technologies. This Policy covers the use of cookies and cache data on the Application and by us only and does not cover the use of cookies or tracking technologies by any such business partner.

IX. Social Networking

The Services may incorporate links or references to third party social networking sites, such as Facebook and Twitter (each, a “Social Networking Site”). By allowing Pocket7Games to connect with your accounts on such Social Networking Sites, you consent to Pocket7Games’s accessing the information in those accounts, which information may include personally identifiable information. You likewise consent to Pocket7Games’s publishing on the Services any such information or actions you take on such Social Networking Sites. Any information accessed or published from your account on a Social Networking Site on the Services is subject to Pocket7Games’s Terms of Service. It is your choice whether to use any such Social Networking Site, and you understand that in some instances such Social Networking Sites may request to access and publish information about you or your friends that is included in your Pocket7Games account.

XII. Governing Law

This Policy is governed by the laws of California without giving effect to any principles of conflict of law. Please note this Policy governs the use of our Services from and within the United States. The United States and other countries have not harmonized their privacy regulations.
