SuperHippo Games's primary objective in collecting user information is to provide and enhance the Application and to enable users to enjoy the Application.

"Non-personal information" is information that, when taken alone, cannot be used to identify or contact you.

SuperHippo Games may also invite you to share non-personal information about yourself which may include but is not limited to:
If non-Personal Information is collected for an activity that also requires personal information, SuperHippo Games may combine your non-personal information with your personal information in an attempt to provide you with a better user experience, to improve the value and quality of the Application and to analyze how Applications are used. The Application may also record game play information such as your game session duration or your high scores.
In addition to information collected as described above, you may choose to share additional information about yourself throughout the Application, such as on message boards and in games. Any actions you perform with other players are considered public, and are in your sole discretion.
Other information SuperHippo Games may collect includes your occupation, language, zip code, area code, location, and the time zone where an Application 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 SuperHippo Games can better understand customer behavior and improve its products, Applications, and advertising. SuperHippo Games may also receive either non-personal or public information from third parties in connection with market and demographic studies and/or data that SuperHippo Games may use to supplement personal information provided directly by you.
How SuperHippo Games Uses Your Information
SuperHippo Games uses your information to fulfill your specific requests, purchase orders and to send you purchase confirmation and other related information. In addition, the personal information you provide will allow SuperHippo Games to send you messages regarding, among other things, new products, features, enhancements, special offers, upgrade opportunities, contests and events of interest. You may also later opt out of certain of these communications.
SuperHippo Games may also use personal and non-personal information, both individually and combined together, to better understand the behavior and preferences of its customers, to troubleshoot technical problems, to serve static and dynamic advertising, to enforce its Terms of Application, to ensure proper functioning of its products and Applications as well as to help improve Applications and their content. In addition, SuperHippo Games may combine non-personal information with personal information, such as an email address, to administer loyalty programs, tailor its offerings, web pages or game play experience to you.
If you enter into a sweepstake, contest, or similar promotion, SuperHippo Games may use the information you provide to administer those programs. Your participation in tournaments or other online game events is conditional upon you granting SuperHippo Games permission to collect, use, store, transmit and display publicly statistical data, such as your scores, rankings and achievements, generated through your participation.
In all cases of data access and collection, the information you provide will not be disclosed, rented, loaned, leased, sold, or otherwise voluntarily distributed to unaffiliated third parties and will be used solely for the purpose of providing you with and improving the Application and for any other purpose stated herein. SuperHippo Games will retain your information for as long as needed to provide you Applications. Note that there may be instances where SuperHippo Games is legally required to retain your information.
SuperHippo Games may also collect or receive information about you from other Application users who choose to upload their email contacts. This information will be stored by SuperHippo Games and used primarily to help you and your friends connect.
SuperHippo Games may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate its Applications, to provide the Applications on its behalf, to perform tasks (e.g., without limitation, maintenance Applications, database management, web analytics and improvement of the Applications) or to assist SuperHippo Games in analyzing how its Applications are used.
From time to time, SuperHippo Games employs third party contractors to collect personal information on its behalf to provide email delivery, product, prize or promotional fulfillment, contest administration, credit card processing or other Applications through the Application. When requesting these Applications, you may be asked to supply your name, mailing address, telephone number and email address to its contractors. SuperHippo Games may ask some third party contractors, such as credit agencies, data analytics or market research firms, to supplement personal information that you provide to SuperHippo Games for its own marketing and demographic studies, so that SuperHippo Games can consistently improve its sites and related advertising to better meet its visitors' needs and preferences. To enrich its understanding of individual customers, SuperHippo Games may tie this information to the information you provide to it.
Note that certain information you post and communicate through an Application or a third party site or Application is public information for which you have no expectation of privacy.
You may choose to disclose information about yourself in the course of contributing user generated content to SuperHippo Games sites or Applications or in its chat rooms, blogs, message boards, user "profiles" for public view or in similar forums on its sites through mobile Applications and/or through third party sites or Applications. Information that you disclose in any of these forums is public information, and there is no expectation of privacy or confidentiality.
You should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit in the course of these public activities can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. SuperHippo Games is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to make public in any of these forums.
If you post a video, image or photo through an Application for public view, you should be aware that these may be viewed, collected, copied and/or used by other users without your consent. SuperHippo Games is not responsible for the videos, images or photos that you choose to post through a Application.
Note that in the ordinary course of Internet activity, certain information may be sent from your browser to third parties such as advertising networks and analytics companies. SuperHippo Games has no control over the information sent from your browser to those networks or other third parties and recommends that you ensure that your browser settings prevent the disclosure of information you would not like to share.
You understand and agree that SuperHippo Games may be required to disclose any personal information if required to do so by law or in the belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to avoid liability, to comply with legal process, including, but not limited to a subpoena, statute, search warrant, or court order, or to protect the property and rights of SuperHippo Games or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity SuperHippo Games may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, illegal, unethical or legally actionable. Note that SuperHippo Games is not required to question or contest the validity of any search warrant, subpoena or other similar governmental request that it may receive.
SuperHippo Games may also disclose information about you if it determines that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce the terms and conditions of the Application or to protect its operations or users.

Like many websites, SuperHippo Games 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 Application may send cookies to a computer or a mobile device when a user accesses or views an Application. Information contained in a cookie may be linked to personal information for purposes such as improving the quality of SuperHippo Games's Application, tailoring recommendations to interests, and making the Application easier to use. Third party advertisers on the Applications 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 an Application.
The Application may contain links to other websites or applications. The fact that the Application links to a website or application or presents a banner ad or other type of advertisement does not mean that SuperHippo Games 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 SuperHippo Games site 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 SuperHippo Games 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 SuperHippo Games. You are therefore encouraged to read the privacy policies or statements of other websites and applications you visit before providing any personal information.
SuperHippo Games has made reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. However, SuperHippo Games cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to overcome those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes. Also please note that email and messaging systems are not considered secure, so SuperHippo Games discourages you from sending SuperHippo Games personal information through these media.

Without derogating from the foregoing, SuperHippo Games does not knowingly collect personal information from people under the age of 13. If SuperHippo Games learns that a person under the age of 13 has provided it with personal information, SuperHippo Games will take steps to delete such information as soon as possible.
