Q1. Why does V2G have this policy?
A1: V2G’s mission is to bring about happiness through excellence in game design. Allowing you to have confidence in our products and online practices is essential to our aspirations and success. To demonstrate our concern for your privacy, we have developed this Privacy Policy which tells you - in simple, plain language - how we collect, store, use, and disclose the information you provide us.
 
 
Q2: What information does this Privacy Policy cover?
A2: We do not require personal information to access our website and games. However, if you prefer not to disclose personal information, you may not be able to enjoy certain features of our website and games. The information we may collect through our websites and games will generally fall into one of the following categories (please carefully read and understand the definitions of the terms below, as these terms may be used repeatedly throughout the rest of this Privacy Policy):
 
Information you voluntarily provide us
Personally Identifiable Information ("PII") such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, phone number, credit card information (including billing and shipping information), or other information that allows us to personally identify or contact you online or off.
However, PII does not include all information about you.
First, if you share PII about yourself in an open format (e.g., on a social network, in user-generated content elements of our websites, etc. - see below for more detail) it will not remain private or be protected by this privacy policy.
Second, PII would not include any information collected by V2G through any means other than on the websites on which this Privacy Policy appears. This means that information collected on other websites, information collected in paper form, etc., is not covered by this Privacy Policy. Please note that even though V2G may provide links to other websites, including V2G international affiliates and websites maintained by other entities, V2G is not responsible for the content, activities, or information collection that occurs thereon.
Third, PII does not include information that is not personally identifiable or is collected in the aggregate unless that information is combined with other information to become identifiable. Aggregate or combined information includes data that is related to you but studied as a group and does not identify you specifically.
Demographic Information, which may include the following types of information about you: age or date of birth, educational level, gender, products owned/played, favorite games, genres, subjects and characters, and other non-personal or survey-type information including hobbies, attitudes, interests, and skills.
Login Information such as username and password, secret answers to certain security questions, or other similar information that allows us to uniquely identify your account or authenticate you prior to giving you access to your account information or certain online activities. For some online accounts, certain login information such as your username may, itself, be personal (like an e-mail address) or tied to other personal information.
 
Information passively or automatically collected
Technical Information, which may include certain information or characteristics about your computer or mobile system, including the type of computer or mobile operating system and browser you use, your computer or mobile phone’s Internet Protocol ("IP") Address, and the names and versions of programs installed on your computer or mobile phone. For the most part, technical information such as the types described above remains anonymous (i.e., does not identify you personally), but in some cases can be traced back to personal information such as an e-mail address.
Usage Information, which may collectively include non-personal information about: (i) how you use, browse, or view content on our websites or games ("Website usage" or "browsing" data), (ii) what products you buy or download online ("history"), and (iii) how you perform and progress on certain V2G games ("play data"). Certain usage information may be linked or tied to other information in your account, including PII.
