At several places on our Services, we may collect certain information you provide to us which may contain personal information. The following are some examples of certain activities on the Services through which you may provide personal information.
Registration. We may collect personal information when you register with us, either through the Site or one of the Services. Other registered users may see your user name. Registration may require you to provide personal information, such as your name, mobile telephone number, an email address, a member name, and/or a PIN or password that will either be chosen by you or created for you by MBR, credit card or other billing information and home and business postal address. You may choose what other information you provide as part of your profile and in some cases, you can choose whether to share that information publicly through the Services by making selections via the user preferences section of your profile webpage. Providing information is voluntary and should correlate with the degree of interaction you want to have with other users. It is highly recommended that you not use your real name as your user name. Additionally, we may also collect other types of information (known as demographic information) such as your date of birth, gender, hobbies, occupation, resume, company info, or computer or game related information. This demographic information may be associated with your personal information. Date of birth may be used to ensure compliance with applicable laws. We use this information to identify and communicate with you, such as in ratings, rankings, contests, special promotions and other activities in which you participate. Your member name may be viewable in communications with other members of the Services, so you should choose a member name that you are comfortable having displayed publicly.
Contests, surveys and other activities. We may also collect personal information, such as your name, address, telephone number, demographic information and information about your tastes and preferences that you provide when you enter a contest or sweepstakes or participate in a survey or similar activity on our Services. Additionally, you may be required to provide other personal information if you are selected as a winner in a contest or drawing.
Interactive Features. Personal information may also be collected if you provide personal information in connection with interactive features of the Services, such as creating a profile, sending a wallpaper image to your phone, participating in discussions, leaving comments or inviting a friend. Additionally, information, such as your performance or rank in games or applications, or your friends’ member names, may be associated with your member name and displayed on our Services.
When you participate in interactive areas of the Services, certain information you post in connection with such application or on the Services is shared with other users, and your use of the Services constitutes your unqualified consent to share this information. For example, personal information that you post in any comments, reviews, profiles, discussion groups or other interactive area, or other information that is provided for the purpose of being shared is publicly available to other users and can potentially be viewed by anyone.
It is your responsibility to read and accept the terms of the relevant social networking site.
Subscriptions, resumes and other requests. If you subscribe to the MBR e-mail newsletter, request support, send us an email, submit a job application or resume or otherwise contact us through the Services, we collect personal information such as your name and email address and any other personal information you provide in such communication. We use such information that we collect in these manners to fulfill and contact you regarding your request and for the other purposes set forth in this policy.
When you register through the Services and submit your personal information to create a profile webpage or join one of the Services, the other users of the Services may see your username and the other information about you. We may display your personal information in your profile page and elsewhere on the Services according to your preference you set in your account. Any information you choose to provide should reflect how much you want other users of the Services to know about you. We recommend that you guard your anonymity and sensitive information and we encourage members to think carefully about what information about themselves they disclose in their profile pages. You can review and revise your profile information at any time. We recommend that you guard your anonymity and sensitive information and that you not use your real name as your username, since that would allow others to identify you.
In addition to the specific uses mentioned above, we may use the personal information we collect (a) to contact you about your use of the Services, such as for administrative purposes or to provide you with customer service; (b) for the purpose for which it was provided, such as to provide our products and Services, to fulfill or respond to your requests, to process transactions, and to send you the communications you requested; (c) to notify you about important changes to our policies or Services, (d) to contact you regarding new and existing MBR features, products and Services, and special MBR offers, promotions and events that we think you may find interesting and for other internal marketing, informational, product development and promotional purposes; (e) to request feedback and to improve the Services and our product and service offerings, and develop new products and services; (f) to provide product support;
All users may review, update, correct or delete the personal information in their registration profile by changing the applicable information in their account settings or, for Services that are hosted on a social networking site, by changing the applicable information in their profile page. If you completely delete all such information, then your account may become deactivated. If you would like us to delete your record in our system, please contact us and we will attempt to accommodate your request if we do not have any legal obligation to retain the record. See below for privacy contact information.
Identity theft and the practice currently known as "phishing" are of great concern to MBR. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your account ID, login password, or any other identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication. For more information about phishing, visit the Federal Trade Commission’s website at www.ftc.gov.
We have put reasonable security measures in place to prevent the loss, misuse, destruction and alteration of information under our control.
Except as described in this policy, MBR will not share your personal information with third parties unless you have consented to the disclosure or we believe the disclosure is appropriate to (1) comply with the law or with legal process, (2) protect and defend our rights and property, such as to determine, bill and collect for amounts owed to us, (3) protect our customers or users, including from misuse or unauthorized use of our Services, or (4) protect the safety or property of our employees, customers, users or others. We may disclose or transfer your personal information (1) to our corporate affiliates (for example, our subsidiaries or parent corporation), (2) to our service providers (like fulfillment, hosting, or payment service providers), but only for their use to provide the requested service, (3) to an acquirer in connection with the sale or other transfer of the business or assets of MBR such as through mergers, acquisitions and the like, or (4) where you provide your express consent to the disclosure. We will nevertheless require our corporate affiliates and service providers that receive your personal information to limit their use and disclosure of your information to the purposes for which you provided it.
We may collect and create or derive aggregate statistics about our customers and visitors, as well as information regarding sales, traffic patterns, and related Service information that cannot be used to identify you. We may use this "aggregate" or "de-identified" information for various purposes, and may disclose it to third parties for example for industry analyses and demographic profiling and to deliver targeted advertising about other products and services.
Our Services may contain links to sites operated by third parties that we think may be of interest to you. If you choose to visit an advertiser by clicking on a banner ad or other type of advertisement, or click on another third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s website, and in such case you leave our Site, and our policies, including this privacy and security policy, no longer govern. Any information you provide to these third parties is subject to their privacy policies, which may differ from ours. MBR is not responsible for the actions of those parties, the content of their Web sites and/or services, use of information you provide to them, or any products or services they may offer. Our link to a third-party site does not constitute our sponsorship of, or affiliation with, the third party nor does it indicate any business, joint venture, partnership with the third party. We encourage you to review and understand the privacy policies of these third parties before providing personal information to them.
