When you install or play any of the Services, WGAMES may collect and store the information you provided to WGAMES, whether through the Services, social network or other third-party services (“Account Information”).
“Personal information” means information that can be used to identify and contact you. The personal information types collected in accordance with a Service will vary depending on the activity and may include the following:

“Non-personal information” is information that, when taken by itself, cannot be used to contact or identify you. During the course of playing the game, or usage of the software, WGAMES may collect non-personal information about you to help improve the game experience or to make improvements to its game or software. WGAMES may also invite you to share non-personal information about yourself which may include but is not limited to:

- Information about the device or computer hardware you use;
- Your favorite websites, friend information and fan pages; or
- Other information included in your application, social network or online profiles.
WGAMES may combine non-Personal Information it has collected along with your personal information to analyze and better understand how its Services are used to provide a more tailored user experience and improve the overall quality of the Services. In addition, the Service may record game play information such as your game session duration or specific special events like big wins or jackpots.
Beyond the information collected as outlined above, you may choose to share additional information about yourself throughout the Service from message boards or from within the games. Note that any actions you perform with other players are considered public and are in your sole discretion.
Other information WGAMES may collect includes your occupation, language, zip code, area code, location, and the time zone where a Service is used, as well as information about your computer, mobile device, software, platform, incident data, Internet Protocol (IP) address, network Media Access Control (MAC) address and connection, browser type, browser language, referring pages, exit pages and URLs, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time of this activity, so that WGAMES can better understand customer behavior and improve its products, services, and advertising. Additionally, WGAMES may receive non-personal and/or public information from third parties in connection with market and demographic studies that WGAMES may use to supplement or enhance personal information provided directly by you.

Like many websites, WGAMES may use “cookies” to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your computer’s hard disk or your mobile device for record-keeping purposes. The Service may send cookies to a computer or a mobile device when a user accesses or views a Service. Information contained in a cookie may be linked to personal information for purposes such as improving the quality of WGAMES’s service, tailoring recommendations to interests, and making the Service easier to use. Third-party advertisers on the Services may also place or read cookies on your browser. Cookies can be disabled at any time by changing your web browser’s options to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions or functionalities of a Service.
The Service may contain links to other websites or applications. The fact that the Service links to a website or application or presents a banner ad or other type of advertisement does not mean that WGAMES endorses or authorizes that third-party, nor is it a representation of any affiliation with that third-party. If you click on a link to a third-party site or application, including on an advertisement, you will leave the WGAMES site or you are visiting or application you are running and will go to the site or application linked to. These third-party websites and applications may place their own cookies or other files on your computer or mobile device and may collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other sites and applications follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. Because WGAMES cannot control the activities of third parties, it cannot accept responsibility for any use of your personal information by such third parties, and it cannot guarantee that they will adhere to the same privacy and security practices as WGAMES. You are therefore encouraged to read the privacy policies or statements of other websites and applications you visit before providing any personal information.
