A. From Users of the Site, Venan Collects:

SPECIAL NOTICE: Any information you reveal or post on our blog is made public to others, is not protected by this Privacy Policy and may be shared with third parties – whether by us or by other users of the blog or our Site.  Accordingly you should not post any information on our blog that you do not want shared with others.

We may also collect certain information from your browser, including domain names, IP addresses, browser information, operating system information, or information on what users access, utilize or visit on or through the Site.

SPECIAL NOTICE: We Collect Non-personally Identifiable Information from the Site Using Google Analytics.

Google Analytics is a web analytic service offered by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies" which are elements of data that a website can send to a user’s browser and store on a user’s computer.  Cookies can note that a user’s browser was used to visit certain sites or pages on a certain date. Venan uses Google Analytics to enhance navigation and functionality of the Site, and to let it know how visitors are using the Site, so that it can improve the Site or a user’s experience on it.  

The information about your usage of websites collected through these cookies is transmitted to and stored on Google’s servers.  

You may opt out of the use of cookies by configuring your own browser settings directly to handle cookies.  The “help” menu on most browsers will explain how you can decline cookies.  However, there is no guarantee that by doing so you will have access to all of the features on our Site.  You may also prevent the cookies from collecting and storing
non-personally identifiable information by downloading and installing the browser-plugin at: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

SPECIAL NOTICE:  Any information you reveal or post in our public forums or guilds or to other Games users is not protected by this Privacy Policy and may be shared with third parties – whether by us or other Game users also utilizing these features of our Games.  Accordingly you should not post any information that you do not want shared with others.

SPECIAL NOTICE: Registering for our Games is not required to play our Games.

However, doing so allows you to have access to special features such as Game scores and Game score history, Game play history, communicating with other Game users, posting messages to other Game users, unlocking multiple character slots or accessing your characters and heroes across multiple mobile and wireless devices. 

Information Collected at Registration - Should you register for our Games, at the time of registration we will collect your email address. We also request that you choose a “display name” by which other Game users can see you as and create a password. 

Venan does not see, store or have access to your password.  The display name you choose is an anonymous name that does not identify you.  Should you wish to change your display name you may do so by utilizing the options in our Games or by emailing us at: privacy@venan.com.

If you do not register with us, we may assign you a “display name”.  However, because Venan offers a communal gaming experience, we will disclose your “display name” and scores to other Game users. We do not allow other Game users to use any of this information outside of our Games

Emails From You to Recruit Other Game Users - Should you wish to send an email to a friend to “recruit” or invite them to play our Games, we will collect and store your friend’s email address on our servers. These email addresses are stored separately from  the information we collect from our existing Game users.  Venan does not use such email addresses for marketing or for any other purpose, nor are they shared with third-parties. However, when you submit the email addresses of other individuals to us, you thereby agree, represent and warrant to us in each instance that you have obtained consent from each such individual to the submission of such email address.

Downloading Additional Features. You may be given the option to download additional features in connection with our Games, namely, to enable HD graphics.  In so doing, we do not collect any personally-identifiable information from you.

We collect such non-personally identifiable information through the use of third party metrics and analytics tools. You acknowledge and agree that the third-party metrics and analytics companies utilized by Venan may combine the information collected with other information they have independently collected from other services or products relating to your activities. These companies collect and use information under their own terms of use and privacy policies which you should carefully review.
