Third-Parties and their sites
Certain arcade.ly services, such as logging in, are offered in conjunction with our (third-party) business partners. In such cases, personal information is shared between us in order to enable you to log into the site and see your history of gameplay (scores, etc.). Please note that if you do not supply the information required to log in to the site this service will be unavailable.
Where our services make use of hosted tools, hosted data storage and payment services provided by third parties any of your personal information stored by such third parties shall be subject to their privacy provisions.
Whilst we choose our business partners carefully, unfortunately we cannot be responsible for their privacy policies and practices or those of other sites that you access using links from our site. Therefore we recommend that you check the policy of each site you visit.
In addition, if you linked to our site from a third party site, we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the owners or operators of that third party site and recommend that you check the policy of that third party site and contact its owner or operator if you have any concerns or questions.
Log files/IP addresses
When you visit our website, we automatically log your IP address, which is recognized by our web server. We use IP addresses to help us administer arcade.ly sites - specifically to ensure we provide a good service to users across the globe - and to collect broad demographic information for aggregate use and to track your engagement with us.
Non personal information
arcade.ly may share non-personal aggregate or summary information regarding its customers with partners or other third parties, such as information relating to the number of users linking to our website from their sites but arcade.ly does not sell or share any information at the individual level.
We may also use non-personal aggregate or summary information across arcade.ly sites, for example to show how many users are online, or playing a particular game.
Cookies are very small text files saved to your computer used to track user navigation around a website.
At arcade.ly cookies are used when users log-in to the website to identify and authenticate the user, and give them access to their profile.
arcade.ly also uses session cookies to uniquely identify users who are not logged in. They are not cross-referenced with any other information such that an individual person could be identified. They do however allow us to remember preferences you've set for individual games (e.g., turning off music) across visits to the site without you having to log in. If you choose to log in this information will be shared across all devices from which you log in to the site.
We use Google Analytics to collect broad demographic and usage data on arcade.ly sites. Again, this helps us to provide the best service to users of different devices around the world. As with other third parties, arcade.ly does not have access to or control of cookies placed by Google.

Disabling cookies, however, may mean that some functionality may be affected.

Other than the disclosures referred to in this policy, we will not disclose any personal information without your permission unless we are legally obliged or entitled to do so (for example, if required to do so by Court order or for the purposes of identifying fraud or other crime).
We will only disclose your personal information to a third party either as part of a reorganization or a sale of the assets of arcade.ly and/or having ensured that steps have been taken to ensure that your privacy rights continue to be protected.

We will continue to monitor and update security measures as new technology becomes available as appropriate to the website.

It may lso be transferred to our service providers that are situated outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and may be processed by staff operating outside the EEA.
