The website www.Gotnextgame.com, you have entered is owned and operated by, or on behalf of, GotNextGame, Inc. or its affiliates (collectively, “GNG”, “we” or “us”).
The TRUSTe certification covers our collection, use and disclosure of information we collect through our website www.gotnextgame.com and mobile application.
GNG is committed to providing special protection for the privacy of children who may visit our websites. We encourage parents to spend time online with their children, become familiar with the features of our websites and participate in the activities offered on our websites. For more information on getting involved in your children’s online activities, please go to our www.gotnextgame. Our protections for the privacy of children include the following:
We do not knowingly solicit, collect, use or retain any Personal Information, for any purpose whatsoever (including internal or external marketing or promotional purposes), from visitors to this website who are under the age of 13. In addition, we will delete any records of such Personal Information that come to our attention.
We do not allow visitors who we know are under the age of 13 to be listed in any directory of registered users, to participate in any of our chat services, to register for contests, sweepstakes, promotions, or newsletters, or to receive direct marketing from GNG or from our third-party affiliates or service or product providers.
We do collect Personal Information as part of registration processes so that users can obtain certain services, such as newsletters, and so that they can set up accounts or profiles. No person may open such accounts or profiles if he or she is under the age of 13. We do not knowingly allow such persons to register and our websites may employ features and procedures that are intended to help prevent under-age registrations. If we believe that a person who is under the age of 13 has registered with us or set up a profile, account, or has otherwise violated our age-related requirements for a profile, we will terminate that registration and will undertake commercially reasonable efforts to delete any Personal Information we have obtained, including all content from any profile or account.
We recommend that minors who are age 13 or older consult with their parents before sending any information about themselves over the internet.

- Participation in contests and sweepstakes.

If you send us an e-mail, you should know that e-mail is not necessarily secure against interception. So, if your communication needs to include sensitive information like your Payment Information or social security number, please contact us by postal mail or telephone (see “Contact Us” below) rather than e-mail.
Cookies, Locally Shared Objects, and Other Technologies
In order to track your use of our websites, “cookies” are employed. We – and our affiliates and advertising partners – use two types of cookies – so-called “browser cookies” and “Flash cookies.” Browser cookies (also called “HTTP cookies”) are pieces of information that are sent by websites and stored in your computer’s hard drive, which provide you a service by allowing us to recognize your computer to save you from having to re-enter the same data every time you visit our websites. They also allow us and our affiliates and advertising partners to learn how visitors use our websites. This user data is aggregated for tracking purposes primarily by tallying pages viewed throughout our websites and logging Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses, browser types, general geographic origin of access to our websites and similar usage data. Flash cookies (also called “Locally Shared Objects” or “LSOs”) are also used to remember settings and preferences and to track usage. However, Flash cookies are stored differently on your hard drive and are managed through a different interface than the one provided by your web browser. In general, Flash cookies are more persistent and can store more data that browser cookies.
Our websites may use other technologies such as pixel tags, web beacons, or other forms of local storage, including HTML5 local storage (collectively, “other technologies”) in order to collect and track information about individuals to our websites. Information collected from these types of technologies, and from cookies and Flash cookies, is collectively referred to as “website usage data.”
Website usage data enables us to tailor our content to our visitors’ interests and to help our affiliates and advertisers better understand the preferences of our audience. Providing website usage data to advertisers is essential to keeping as many of our services free to visitors as is reasonably possible. In general, website usage data information does not identify you, although we may combine this website usage data with Personal Information under this Policy.
Our third-party advertisers also may place, access or recognize a browser or Flash cookie on your hard drive, or use other technologies to collect and track information about you in order to serve the most appropriate advertisements. Advertisers may use browser or Flash cookies and other technologies in manners that are not fully described in this policy, and we make no promises about how they use them.
If you do not want to receive browser cookies, you may be able to set your browser to reject them. If you wish to disable or delete Flash cookies, you should consult the Help file for your Flash application, and/or visit http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/disable-local-shared-objects-flash.html. However, if you turn cookies off (whether browser or Flash cookies), you may not have access to some GNG features and services. The other technologies that our websites use may not be able to be disabled; if you are concerned about this, you should not use our websites.
We use mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our Mobile Software on your phone. This software may record information such as how often you use the application, the events that occur within the application, aggregated usage, performance data, and where the application was downloaded from. We do not link the information we store within the analytics software to any personally identifiable information you submit within the mobile application.
We send you push notifications from time-to-time in order to update you about any events or promotions that we may be running. If you no longer wish to receive these types of communications, you may turn them off at the device level. To ensure you receive proper notifications, we will need to collect certain information about your device such as operating system and user identification information.

How We Use Your Information
