We respect the privacy rights of our users and are committed to protecting the information collected through our website http://www.pivotgame.info, as well as our online products, online services and websites including, but not limited to Pivot Games’s games (together, our “Services”). Pivot Games has adopted this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) to explain how we collect, store, secure and use the information collected through all of our websites and Services, as well as your choices regarding use, access and correction of your personal information.
Pivot Games reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy at reasonable times. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.

Information Collection
For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “personal information” means personally identifiable information that specifically identifies you as an individual. We do not consider personal information to include information that has been de-identified, aggregated, or otherwise made anonymous so that it can no longer be used to identify a specific person, whether in combination with other information or otherwise.
Pivot Games collects, processes and retains information about you from four (4) sources: (i) you (i.e., whenever you make personal information available to us); (ii) your devices (including web, mobile and wearable devices); (iii) cookies, web beacons, and other similar technologies; and (iv) social networking sites and gaming partners. The types of information collected may vary depending on the type of activity you are engaged in and the information source.
Personal Information you may voluntarily provide Pivot Games when you use our Services or register an account with us:
(i) your first and last name, (ii) screen/nick name, (iii) Pivot Games Services ID or third party service ID, (iv) email address, (v) phone number, (vi) photo or other image, (vii) DOB (month/year), (viii) sex, (ix) address, (x) friend connections, (xi) avatar image, (xii) credit card information, (xiii) shipping information; (xiv) friend’s name and contact information

Information we collect automatically from your devices (including web, mobile, and wearable devices) when you use our Services may include:
Pivot Games may use analytical software tools to automatically collect and use data that does not directly enable Pivot Games to identify you. There are two categories of data automatically collected by Pivot Games: “Website Use Information” and “Device Use Information.”

We may on occasion match or combine the information automatically collected from your devices with personal information we obtain from you or other sources, including publicly available databases or third parties from whom we have purchased data, or that is already in our records. This sort of combined information may be used in the ways described in this Privacy Policy. This helps us to update, expand and analyze our records, identify new customers, and provide tailored products and advertising that may be of interest to you.
