Information We Collect
Information about You Received from an SNS
When you use any Waphoo game at an SNS such as Facebook or Google +, where our games may also be referred to as "applications", you allow Waphoo to access certain information from your profile for that site. The information you allow Waphoo to access varies by game and SNS, and it is affected by your privacy settings. You can control and find out more about these settings at the SNS where you play our games. For example, Waphoo may access and store some or all of the following information, as allowed by you, the SNS and your preferences:
- your first and last name

Your Sharing and Messaging Options
Information We Receive from Third Party SNS Where You play a Waphoo Game
If you play our games at a third-party SNS, Waphoo will be able to access and store profile and other information about you. The categories of information you share with Us will depend, in part, on the permissions you grant Us and the privacy settings you have established at the SNS where you access the application. Waphoo does not offer an "opt out" option for specific fields that are shared by the SNS where you access and play the game(s).
Privacy Policies of Linked Sites and Advertisers
Our websites and games may contain advertisements from companies other than Waphoo that may link to their own websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. If you have any questions about how these other websites use your information, you should review their policies and contact them directly.
Security of Your Information
Waphoo implements reasonable security measures to protect the security of your information both online and offline, and We are committed to the protection of customer information.
While We take reasonable precautions against possible security breaches of our websites and our customer databases and records, no website or Internet transmission is completely secure, and We cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur. We urge you to take steps to keep your personal information safe (including your account password), and to log out of your account after use. If your SNS account is hacked, this may lead to unauthorized play of your Waphoo games, so be careful to keep your account information secure.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information over the Internet is not completely secure. Although We strive to protect your personal data, We cannot guarantee the security of your data while it is being transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once We have received your information, We have procedures and security features in place to try to prevent unauthorized access.
