Information about You Received from an SNS
When you use an app or website by A-Z Trivia at an SNS such as Facebook or Google+, you allow A-Z Trivia to access certain information from your profile for that site. The information you allow A-Z Trivia to access varies by application and SNS, and it is affected by the privacy settings you and your friends establish at the SNS. You can control and find out more about these settings at the SNS where you use our applications. For example, A-Z Trivia 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 profile picture or its URL
- your user ID number, which is linked to publicly available information such as name and profile photo
- the user ID numbers and other public data for your friends
- the login e-mail you provided to that SNS when you registered

Information We Collect from You Directly
When you interact with the Service (whether or not on an SNS), We may collect and store information from you directly as described below:
We may allow you to “register” with us by using Facebook Connect or other SNS authentication options to create an account or profile within the Service. We may also provide a more typical registration flow where you may be required to provide the following information: your age or birthday (for age screening and/or to better understand who our users are); your first and last name(s); your e-mail address; a password and other information that helps us confirm that it is you accessing your account.
Your first and last names and profile picture are considered “public” on any profile you create in a website or app by A-Z Trivia. When we offer profiles, we will also offer functionality that allows you to opt-out of public indexing of your public profile information.
We may also offer you the ability to import your address book contacts or manually enter e-mail addresses so that you can (i) locate your contacts on a website or app by A-Z Trivia; and (ii) invite those contacts to join you in our applications. We will store those contacts for purposes of helping you and your contacts make connections on our site. Passwords provided to A-Z Trivia for the purpose of accessing your address book will not be stored.

Sharing of Your Information
We will share your information (in some cases personal information) with third parties, that is parties other than A-Z Trivia, in the following circumstances:
Third Party Service Providers
We will provide your information to third party companies to perform services on our behalf, including payment processing, data analysis, e-mail delivery, hosting services, customer service and to assist us in our marketing efforts. We direct all such third party service providers to maintain the confidentiality of the information disclosed to them and to not use your information for any purpose other than to provide services on A-Z Trivia’s behalf.
Friends and Other A-Z Trivia Players
A-Z Trivia supports and may encourage interaction among users. In A-Z Trivia your SNS friends will see your name, profile photo and descriptions of your application activity. In A-Z Trivia friends and other users will be able to see your application profile, which may include your name or an “application name” and your profile photo, which in certain cases can reveal your SNS User ID number or A-Z Trivia identification. Access to a A-Z Trivia identification or your SNS User ID may allow others to view the public information associated with your related SNS or A-Z Trivia account. Other users may also be able to send you application requests or even friend requests through the related SNS’ communication channels.
Advertising of Third Party Products and Services
We may share (i) aggregated information (information about you and other users collectively, but not specifically identifiable to you); (ii) anonymous information; and (iii) certain technical information (including IP Addresses, MAC Addresses for mobile devices and mobile device IDs) to develop and deliver targeted advertising in A-Z Trivia and on the websites of third parties. We may also allow advertisers to collect these types of information within A-Z Trivia and they may share it with us. Advertisers may collect this information through the use of tracking technologies like browser cookies and web beacons. The information collected may be used to offer you targeted ad-selection and delivery in order to personalize your user experience by ensuring that advertisements for products and services you see will appeal to you, a practice known as behavioral advertising, and to undertake web analytics (i.e. to analyze traffic and other end user activity to improve your experience). To learn more about behavioral advertising or to opt-out of this type of advertising for participating ad networks, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative or the Digital Advertising Alliance.
A-Z Trivia may display an “offer wall” that is hosted by an offer wall provider. The offer wall allows third party advertisers to provide virtual currency to users in exchange for interacting with an advertisement or for completing a marketing offer that may include signing up for an account with one of those advertisers. These are not offers made by A-Z Trivia. These offers may be displayed to you based on certain technical information, such as your geographic area or anonymous demographic information. After clicking on one of these advertisements, you will no longer be on a site hosted by A-Z Trivia or a partnering SNS. To properly credit user accounts and to prevent fraud, a unique identifier, in some cases your user ID number, will be shared with the offer wall provider.

Security of Your Information
A-Z Trivia 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.
For user accounts registered directly with A-Z Trivia profile information is protected by the password each member uses to access their online account. It is important that you protect and maintain the security of your account and that you immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your account. If you forget the password to your A-Z Trivia account, the website allows you to request that instructions be sent to you that explain how to reset your password. When you sign into your account or enter payment information (such as a credit card number when purchasing virtual currency), we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (“SSL”).
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 use of A-Z Trivia, so be careful to keep your account information secure. If you have questions about the security of our websites, please contact us via our support site at www.AZTrivia.com.
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.
We may make P3P – compact machine-readable – policies and headers available. If we do so, we will try to ensure that they are consistent with this human readable policy. However, in the event of a conflict between a machine-readable policy and this policy, this (human readable) policy will control.
