Datagame Privacy Policy

1. Well, Howdy Again!

Hello, bonjour, wilkommen. Thank you for visiting Datagame. By now, you’ve read our Terms of Service. If you have not, please read them immediately—do not pass Go; do not collect $200. You must agree to both the Terms of Service and this Privacy Policy in order to have permission to use our Service. Done? Awesome! Let’s talk about the exciting subject of online privacy law.

In other words:

This page describes the data we collect and what we do with it.

2. Definitions

Throughout this document, we may use certain big fancy lawyer words or phrases, and it is important that you understand the meaning of them (but you already know this, as you have read our Terms of Service). The following is a non-exhaustive list of definitions of words and phrases found in this document:

  • “Agreement” refers to these Terms of Service;
  • “Datagame” refers to our company, known as “Insights Meta, LLC”; our Site; our Service; or a combination of all or some of the preceding definitions, depending on the context in which the word is used;
  • “Service” refers to the services that we provide through our Site, including our research gamification platform and our Site itself;
  • “Content” refers to images that you upload to Datagame for use in providing the Service to you;
  • “Site” refers to our websites www.datagame.io, www.dataga.me, and app.dataga.me;
  • “User” refers to anyone who uses our Service, including general visitors to our Site;
  • “You” refers to you, the person who is entering into this Agreement with Dataga.me.

In other words:

These words are probably obvious to you, but we’ve defined them just in case.

3. Information Collected

Identifying Information

We collect certain personal information from you when you sign up to our Service that can be used to identify you, such as your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card information, list of favorite Rodgers & Hammerstein musicals, and telephone number. The information we collect from you, to the extent that it is private, is disclosed only in accordance with our Terms of Service and/or this Privacy Policy.

Non-Identifying Information

Whenever you visit our Site, we may collect non-identifying information from you, such as your IP address, referring URL, browser, operating system, cookie information, and Internet Service Provider. Without a subpoena, voluntary compliance on the part of your Internet Service Provider, additional records from a third party, or a really good TV psychic, this information alone cannot usually be used to identify you.

 In other words:

We collect some data that is used to identify your account, and other information that tells us more about you but couldn’t be used to identify who you are.

4. Use of Your Information

We may use your information to:

  • Enhance or improve User experience, our Site, or our Service.
  • Process transactions.
  • Send e-mails about our Site or respond to inquiries.
  • Send e-mails and updates about Datagame, including news and updates about amended legal documents such as this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service.
  • Perform any other function that we believe in good faith is necessary to protect the security or proper functioning of our Site or Service.

 In other words:

We use this information to provide the Datagame service, to communicate with you about Datagame, and to make Datagame better.

5. Accessing, Editing and Removing Your Information

Users may in some cases be able to review and edit the personal information they have provided to us by logging into your account on the Site and editing their account. Although most changes may occur immediately, information may still be stored in a web browser’s cache. We take no responsibility for stored information in your cache, or in other devices that may store information, and disclaim all liability of such. In addition, we may, from time to time, retain residual information about you in our backup and/or database. In other words, don’t post anything that would make your mother cry or get your boss to fire you, because the Internet is a big place and just because we delete something that can be seen on our Site doesn’t mean that someone else didn’t already copy it and post it elsewhere without our permission.

In other words:

You can always update your active account information.

6. Cookies

We use cookies to remember your preferences and to leave next to the fireplace so Santa will be appeased and return every Christmas. For these reasons, it is necessary that you enable cookies in your browser, and you hereby acknowledge that we have informed you of our use of cookies and that you consent to our use of cookies in relation to your computer system.

In other words:

We use browser cookies to store account preferences, so you’ll need to enable cookies in your browser if you want to use Datagame.

7. Third Party Websites

Datagame may post links to third party websites on its Site. These third party websites are not screened for privacy or security issues by Datagame, and you release us from any liability for the conduct of these third party websites.

Please be aware that this Privacy Policy, and any other policies in place, in addition to any amendments, does not create rights enforceable by third parties or require disclosure of any personal information relating to members of the Service or Site. Datagame bears no responsibility for the information collected or used by any advertiser or third party website. Please review the privacy policy and terms of service for each site you visit through third party links. If a website you go to claims you’ve won a lottery that you’ve never entered and spells lottery with an umlaut, you may wish to exercise caution.

In other words:

If we post links to content on third party sites, we are not responsible for their privacy policies. Use your own judgment.

8. Third Party Access to Your Information

Although you are entering into an Agreement with Datagame to disclose your information to us, we do use third party individuals and organizations to assist us, including contractors, web hosts, and others.

Throughout the course of our provision of our Service to you, we may delegate our authority to collect, access, use, and disseminate your information. For example, our web host stores the information that you provide us, and we may hire outside contractors to perform maintenance or assist us in securing our website.

It is therefore necessary that you grant the third parties we may use in the course of our business the same rights that you afford us under this Privacy Policy. For this reason, you hereby agree that for every authorization which you grant to us in this Privacy Policy, you also grant to any third party that we may hire, contract, or otherwise retain the services of for the purpose of operating, maintaining, repairing, or otherwise improving or preserving our website or its underlying files or systems. You agree not to hold us liable for the actions of any of these third parties, even if we would normally be held vicariously liable for their actions, and that you must take legal action against them directly should they commit any tort or other actionable wrong against you.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you authorize Datagame to collect, share, store, and otherwise use your information in conjunction with Stripe, Mailchimp, and the NSA (just kidding… or are we?).

In other words:

Datagame uses third party services for some aspects of its Service. By using Datagame, you give both us and these service providers the same rights with regards to using your data.

9. Release of Your Information for Legal Purposes

At times it may become necessary or desirable to Datagame, for legal purposes, to release your information in response to a request from a government agency (known in technical terms as “the Five-O”) or a private litigant. You agree that we may disclose your information to a third party where we believe, in good faith, that it is desirable to do so for the purposes of a civil action, criminal investigation, or other legal matter. In the event that we receive a subpoena affecting your privacy, we may elect to notify you to give you an opportunity to file a motion to quash the subpoena, or we may attempt to quash it ourselves, but we are not obligated to do either. We may also proactively report you, and release your information to, third parties where we believe that it is prudent to do so for legal reasons, such as our belief that you have engaged in fraudulent activities. You release us from any damages that may arise from or relate to the release of your information to a request from law enforcement agencies or private litigants.

In other words:

If a government agency or court requests or subpoenas your data, or we suspect criminal activity, we may release your data for legal purposes.

10. Commercial and Non-Commercial Communications

By providing information to the Site that forms the basis of communications with you, such as contact information, you waive all rights to file complaints concerning unsolicited e-mails from Datagame since, by providing such information, you agree to receive communications from us or anyone else covered under this Privacy Policy. However, you may unsubscribe from certain communications by notifying Datagame that you no longer wish to receive solicitations or information and we will endeavor to remove you from the database. If you do this, though, please do not expect further updates from us—we won’t even be able to send smoke signals.

In other words:

By using this service, you agree to allow us to send newsletters and other email to you. You can opt out at any time.

11. Security Measures

We take certain measures to enhance the security of our Site and Service, including using SSL certificates and hungry Dobermans tied to our server hardware. However, we make no representations as to the security or privacy of your information. It is in our interest to keep our Site secure, but we recommend that you use anti-virus software, firewalls, and other precautions to protect yourself from security threats.

In other words:

We work to keep our service safe and secure. You should do the same for your own systems and networks.

12. Your California Privacy Rights

Datagame permits residents of California to use its Service. Therefore, it is the intent of Datagame to comply with the California Business and Professions Code §§ 22575-22579. If you are a California resident, and you have become tired of doing fun things like surf and go to Universal Studios, you may request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to any third parties for their direct marketing purposes. Various provisions throughout this Privacy Policy address requirements of the Californian privacy statutes. In summary, you must presume that we collect electronic information from all visitors. You may contact us at support@dataga.me with any questions.

In other words:

We love California! You can contact us if you’re a Californian with privacy questions.

13. International Transfer

Your information may be transferred to—and maintained on—computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. If you are located outside of the United States and choose to provide information to us, Datagame transfers Personal Information to the United States through a series of tubes known as the Interwebz and processes it there. Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.

In other words:

Our servers and data are located in the United States, even if you’re using the service from another country.

14. Amendments

We may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time. When we amend this Privacy Policy, we will update this page accordingly and e-mail you to inform you that there has been a change, or, if there is an Internet traffic jam that day, we may elect to use an old timey telegraph. Your continued use of our Service shall constitute your acceptance of any such amendments.

In other words:

We may change this Privacy Policy in the future, but will let you know if we do.
