Privacy Policy

We are strongly committed to letting you know how we will collect and use your personal information through our services. The policies below are applicable to data and information collected when you use, including gamacy.com (including any versions optimized for viewing on a wireless or tablet device); and all other interactive features and communications provided by Gamacy, Inc., e.g. e-mail newsletters or communications (“Website”), however accessed and/or used, that are operated by Gamacy, made available by Gamacy, or produced and maintained by Gamacy, Inc. (collectively “Gamacy” or “we”, “us”, or “our”). We have established this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) to let you know the kinds of personal information we may gather during your use of this Website, why we gather your information, what we use your personal information for, when we might disclose your personal information, and how you can manage your personal information.

Please be advised that the practices described in this Privacy Policy apply only to information gathered online through our Website. It does not apply to information that you may submit to us offline or by companies or organizations to which we may link or who may link to us.

By using our Website, you are accepting the practices described in our Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Website. We reserve the right to modify or amend the terms of our Privacy Policy from time to time without notice. Your continued use of our Website following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes. If we intend to apply the modifications or amendments to this Privacy Policy retroactively or to personal information already in our possession, we will provide you with notice of the modifications or amendments.

If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy or don’t see your concerns addressed here, you should contact us by email at [email protected]

What Information About Me Is Collected and Stored?

We collect two basic types of information from you in conjunction with your use of the Website, personal information and non-personal information. Personal information is information that you supply to us, as described more fully below, i.e., when you use our Services, obtain a subscription, complete a survey, register on the Website, upload content, participate in a community, or provide your e-mail address. Personal information is any information that can individually identify you and includes, among other things, your name, e-mail address, telephone number, postal address, credit card, billing and contact information. Non-personal information includes information that does not personally identify you, but it may include tracking and usage information about your location, demographics, use of the Website and the Internet.

Personal Information

As a general matter, you can browse the Website without submitting your personal information to us. However, there are a number of circumstances in which you may supply us or our agents with your personal information. The following lists the most common ways in which we may collect your personal information.

Non-Personal Information

In addition, when you interact with the Website, we may collect certain information that does not identify you individually and our servers may automatically keep an activity log of your use of our Website (“Non-Personal Information”). Generally, we collect and store the following categories of Non-Personal Information:

  • Non-identifiable demographic data such as age, gender, and five digit zip code as part of collecting personal information
  • Device information about your computer, browser, mobile device, or other device that you use to access the Website. This information may include IP address, geolocation information, unique device identifiers, browser type, browser language, and other transactional information.
  • Analytics and usage information about your use of the Website.
  • Additional “traffic data” and log files such as time of access, date of access, software crash reports, session identification number, access times, and referring Website addresses.
  • Other information regarding your use of the Website.

Collection of Your Source IP Address/Location Information

We may collect and store location information about you on the Website and associated with your account that you volunteer on the Website or enable through the Website or your device. We will not collect any location information that you do not volunteer or enable. We will delete any location information that you request is deleted. We do collect and store your device’s source IP address which may disclose the location of your device at the time you access the Website.

Collection of Personal Information From or Through Social Media Sites or Using Your Social Media Logon

When you interact with any Gamacy page or account on a social media platform, such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Tumblr, LinkedIn, YouTube, or Pinterest, we may collect the personal information that you make available to us on that page or account including your account ID or “handle.” However, we will comply with the privacy policies of the corresponding social media platform and we will only collect and store such personal information that we are permitted to collect by these social media platforms. If you publish your social media profile on our Service, we may collect personal information that you make available as part of that profile.

Use of Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

Like many websites and mobile applications, we use “cookies”, which are small text files that are stored on your computer or equipment when you visit certain online pages that record your preferences and actions. We may also use cookies to monitor traffic, improve the Website and make it easier and/or relevant for your use. Like many Websites, we use cookies, web beacons and similar technologies to record your preferences, track the use of our Websites and your exposure to our advertisements. We may also use these technologies to monitor traffic, improve the Websites and make it easier and/or relevant for your use. If you delete your cookies or if you set your browser or device to decline these technologies, some features of the Website may not work or may not work as designed.

We use both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies on our website. We do not use flash cookies, web storage, web beacons or other technology that tracks your browsing history across multiple Websites.

We use cookies for the other purposes set out below:

  • We use cookies to remind us who you are and to find your account information in our database when you access a service so you do not need to log in at every visit. This helps us to provide you with service tailored to your specific needs and interests. A cookie is created when you register for a service
  • We use cookies to determine the browser the visitor uses so the site can be designed to work properly with the most common versions of different browsers
  • We use cookies in conjunction with sending you e-mail newsletters
  • Advertisers that place ads on the Website may use cookies
  • We use cookies in conjunction with analysis of your use of our Website and generate analytics regarding our Website
  • We use cookies to estimate our audience size. Your browser is given a unique cookie that helps us determine whether yours is a repeat visit or a first visit

We also use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”), on our Websites. Google Analytics uses cookies or other tracking technologies to help us analyze how users interact with and use the Websites, compile reports on the Websites’ activity, and provide other services related to Websites activity and usage. The technologies used by Google may collect information such as your IP address, time of visit, whether you are a return visitor, and any referring Website. The Websites do not use Google Analytics to gather information that personally identifies you. The information generated by Google Analytics will be transmitted to and stored by Google and will be subject to Google’s privacy policies. To learn more about Google’s partner services and to learn how to opt out of tracking of analytics by Google click here.

Third Party Advertising

We hold the opinion that third party advertising should be intentional, meaningful and never detract from the user experience. We hate annoying ads and are extremely selective about any forms of advertising that are used throughout Gamacy’s Websites. That said, we believe that intentional and meaningful advertising can be interesting and valuable to many of our users. Therefore, occasional forms of meaningful third party advertising may be featured on our Websites.

In some cases we may partner with third party advertising companies to better provide advertisements about our goods and services that may be of interest to you. These third party advertisers may use cookies alone or in conjunction with web beacons or other tracking technologies to collect information about you when you use the Sites. They may collect information about your online activities over time and across different Websites and other online services. They may use this information to provide you with interest-based advertising or other targeted content. These online advertising partners do not have access to or use your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number or other personally identifiable information from us, without your consent. They may, however, use persistent identifiers to anonymously track your Internet usage across other Websites in their networks beyond these Sites. While we restrict their further use of such information, such third parties may, with sufficient data from other sources, be able to personally identify you, unknown to us.

Third party advertisers may also use mobile app tracking solutions that are installed on your mobile device. You can learn about your options to opt-out of mobile app tracking by certain advertising networks through your device settings. For more information about how to change these settings for Apple, Android or Windows devices, see:

Please note that opting-out of third party advertising network services does not mean that you will not receive advertising while using our Websites or on other Websites, nor will it prevent the receipt of interest-based advertising from third parties that do not participate in these programs. It will, however, exclude you from interest- based advertising conducted through participating networks, as provided by their policies and choice mechanisms.

Your browser or device may include “Do Not Track” functionality. Because a “Do Not Track” compliance protocol has not yet been finalized, Gamacy’s information collection and disclosure practices, and the choices that we provide to customers, will continue to operate as described in this privacy policy, whether or not a “Do Not Track” signal is received.
