Making Fun, Inc. (“Making Fun”, “us” or “we”) is a publisher and developer of video games for phones, tablets, websites, and personal computers. We offer a website at MakingFun.com, websites for each of our games that are linked from MakingFun.com, and games published on a variety of platforms, by or on behalf of Making Fun, including when they are accessed via the Internet, mobile, PC, or other device (collectively, the “Service”). Making Fun is based in the United States.
As set forth in our Terms of Services, which contains the terms for your use of the Service, the Service is intended for general audiences, is not targeted to children, and does not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 years of age. If you believe that we might have any data from or about a child under the age of 13, please contact us.
User Submitted Information
Email Address. If email address is not included in such information, we may ask you to submit your email address directly to Making Fun. We use email addresses to communicate with players and to provide you with a unique login spanning devices and different third-party platforms. We may also use your email address and gameplay statistics to generate advertising target lists using Facebook’s “lookalike” functionality, which allows us to target our Facebook and Instagram ads at people who, according to their algorithms, “look like” you (for example, people who also enjoy role-playing games).
Public Site Content consists of information you disclose in public areas of the Service, such as forums, message boards, chat rooms, gameplay sessions, and other community areas. It also includes the information about you that accompanies this content, such as a username or user picture. Please be aware that Public Content is not private and is available to everyone and may be displayed in search results both on the Service and on external search engines such as Google or Bing. By way of example, gameplay logs containing usernames, timestamps and gameplay data may be made available over the public internet for players to download and analyze for their enjoyment. Please do not use a username that can identify you personally (for example because you use it on other sites that reveal additional information about you) if you have any concerns about this information being freely available. If you have set a user name incorrectly then you may change it via the Service or by contacting us, although it may be impossible for us to eliminate cases of past public usage.
Correspondence consists of information you disclose when you contact Making Fun, for example, for customer service purposes.
Making Fun Collected Information
Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, but you can change your settings to notify you when a cookie is being set or updated, or to block cookies altogether. Please consult the "Help" section of your browser for more information. Please note that by blocking any or all cookies you may not have access to certain features or personalization available through the Service.
Third parties that support the Making Fun Services by serving advertisements or providing services, such as allowing users to share content or tracking aggregate site usage statistics, may also use these technologies to collect similar information. Making Fun does not control these third-party technologies and their use is governed by the privacy policies of third parties using such technologies. For more information about third-party ad networks that use these technologies, see www.aboutads.info.
Third Parties. To operate and improve the quality of the Service, we may also supplement the information we collect with information from third parties. For example, we use TUNE for mobile app install attribution in order to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns.
Not Track. Your browser may offer you a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications and services (including behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities over time and across different websites. Our Products do not support Do Not Track requests at this time, which means that we collect information about your online activity both while you are using the Products and after you leave our properties.
When we process personal data about you, we do so only as necessary to provide you the Service (i.e. to perform the agreement between us), to meet our legal obligations or to fulfill the so-called “legitimate interests” of Making Fun, or in accordance with the other cases described in this section. To clarify, by legitimate interests we mean lawful purposes that could be reasonably expected, including protecting the security of the data we process, marketing our games, as well as ensuring our marketing is relevant for you, conducting anti-cheat analysis and anti-fraud checks. When we rely on the legitimate interest, we consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights. For other purposes, we will ask for your consent and you will be entitled to withdraw this consent at any time with no impact on the validity of the processing before your consent has been withdrawn.
Information Made Public Through Use of the Making Fun Services
Public Content is publicly available to everyone, including other users, advertisers, search engines, third-party application developers and anyone else with access to the Service. We may also make your Third-Party Account Information publicly available in accordance with the policies and intended usage of the third party service from which it was obtained.
Making Fun’s Use and Disclosure of Information
We use the information we collect from and about users for the following purposes:
To allow third-party service providers to assist us in providing and managing the Service. We may contract with a trusted third party to provide some part of the Service or to assist us in analyzing our services or information collected about you, in which case we may provide your information to such third party, or such third party may collect information from you on our behalf. We share only the minimum data necessary for the third party to achieve the purpose of their cooperation with us in helping us manage or provide the Service by, for example: developing or supporting products and features; hosting our software; displaying advertisements; conducting email marketing on our behalf; processing payments; administering message boards; fulfilling orders; processing data or statistics; or assisting with the administration, judging and prize fulfillment aspects of contests, promotions and sweepstakes. These outside service providers are required to protect non-public personal information entrusted to them and not use it for any other purpose than the specific service they are providing to the Service.
To contact you. Making Fun may periodically send promotional materials (e.g., newsletters) or notifications related to the Service to the email address you provided to us during registration or subscription. If you wish to stop receiving promotional materials from Making Fun, you can follow the unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email. There are certain service notification emails that you may not opt-out of as long as you are a member, such as notifications of changes to the Service or policies.
To protect the rights of Making Fun and our users. There may be instances when we may disclose user information without providing notice or choice, including situations where we have a good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary in order to: (i) protect or defend the legal rights or property of Making Fun, our employees, agents or contractors (including enforcement of our agreements); (ii) protect the safety and security of users of the Service or members of the public; (iii) protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; or (iv) comply with the law or legal process. We may retain backup information related to your use of the Service on our servers for fraud detection or to comply with applicable law or our internal security policies.
To complete a merger or sale of assets. If Making Fun sells all or part of its business or makes a sale or transfer of its assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or transfer of all or a material part of its business, Making Fun may transfer your information to the party or parties involved in the transaction as part of that transaction.
We retains information about you for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collected the data, except if required otherwise by law. We may store information for longer periods for archiving or statistical purposes in which case we will take appropriate measures to ensure that the information is used solely for this purpose.
Making Fun uses good faith, commercially reasonable administrative, technical, personnel and physical measures to safeguard user information in our possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification.
To access, correct, cancel, or update your account information, login to your account and go to the account settings. In some cases, in order to cancel your account, you may have to email Making Fun’s customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember that even after you cancel your account, copies of some information from your account may remain viewable in some circumstances – where, for example, you have shared information on the Service or with a third-party application or website. We may also retain backup information related to your account on our servers for some time after cancellation for fraud detection or to comply with applicable law or our internal security policies. Because of the nature of caching technology, your account may not be instantly inaccessible to others, and we may not be able to remove your content or there may be a delay in the removal of the content from elsewhere on the Internet, for example, from search engines.
