How is your personal information used?
Personal information is information that identifies you and may be used to contact you online or offline after you complete our one-time registration form. FreshGames only collects personal information from our online visitors on a voluntary (opt-in) basis and only during:
(1) registration for membership on our site
(2) registration for game technical service and support
(3) game-specific event participation
(4) marketing surveys and email campaigns
(5) contests and promotions (registration or claiming a prize)
(6) when you order games from us online, or
(7) when you request services from third party service providers on our site.
Information collected may include your name, e-mail address, phone number, home address and birth date. This information may be shared with advertisers on an aggregate basis, although your personal identity will never be revealed. We do not require personal information to obtain access to any of our sites; however, you will not be able to access areas, or be eligible for reward points, prizes or promotions that require registration.
We may use your personal information for our internal marketing and demographic studies, so we can consistently improve our site to better meet our visitors' needs. To enforce legal rights and the law, or when we have reason to believe that a disclosure is necessary to address potential or actual injury or interference with our rights, property, operations, users or others who may be harmed or may suffer loss or damage, we may also disclose personal information to law enforcement, or the appropriate civil authorities.
What is aggregate information?
Non-personally identifiable information about site usage shared with advertisers in anonymous statistical form only. An example of an aggregate summary report might be, 10,530 people played "XYZ" game today, and of those people, 18.5% referred the game to three of their friends, and 80.5% of their friends clicked on the link.
Anonymous information and cookies
We use your IP address to help improve our offerings to you and to administer our Web site. When you access the Internet, your Internet browser (such as Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer) automatically transmits some anonymous information to FreshGames.com every time you access content on FreshGames.com. Examples of such information include the URL of the Web page you just came from (known as the "Referrer"), the IP (or Internet Protocol) address of the computer you are using, or the browser version you are using to access FreshGames.com.
FreshGames' opt-in policy implies that a user must specifically ask to join a mailing list or a newsletter before they are added. Users are not subscribed to these listings by default. After submitting a subscription request, a message is sent to the user requesting confirmation. If the user does NOT confirm their request, their subscription requests are not processed. The process of this prevents one user from subscribing another user without their consent. Subscribers can remove themselves at a later date.
List and News Subscriptions
Through registration and contest entries forms, we provide users with the opportunity to subscribe to news and announcement listings. Listings are managed under our opt-in policy. Personal and demographic details gathered through subscription requests are shared with advertisers on an aggregate basis. We do not share, sell, or rent listings that would disclose the personal details of an individual.
What does FreshGames do with the information collected?

FreshGames does employ third-party contractors, such as Trymedia and RegNow, to collect personal information on our behalf, for downloadable games and fulfillment. When requesting these services, you may be asked to supply your name, mailing address, telephone number and email address and credit card information. When our third-party contractors collect and/or have access to the personal information you provide when requesting such services from FreshGames, FreshGames requires that they adhere to our stated privacy policies and protect the confidentiality of personal information they collect or have access to in the course of their engagement by FreshGames.
