Information We Collect
When you use any Escape MU service, also referred to as an "application" or "app", you get access to its online community within that game and you allow Escape MU to access certain information from your profile for that application. The information you allow Escape MU to access varies by application, and it is affected by the privacy settings you and your friends establish in that application. You can control and find out more about these settings within the application.
Information We Collect from You Directly
When you interact with the application, at https://www.escapemu.com or any Escape MU-owned website, we may collect and store information from you directly as described below.
We may allow you to "register" with us by using Facebook Connect or other Application authentication options to create an account or profile within the Service. We may also provide a more typical registration flow where you may be required to provide the following information: your age or birthday (for age screening and/or to better understand who our users are); your e-mail address; a password and other information that helps Us confirm that it is you accessing your account.
We may also offer you the option to complete a user profile that is visible to other Escape MU users. Your user profile may include: a profile image; one or more game username(s); and a Escape MU user ID number that is created by Escape MU and used to identify your profile.
Escape MU may also receive the billing and payment information that you provide when your purchase is processed by another party, such as Facebook (for Facebook Credits), Apple (for purchases on iOS devices), Google (for purchases on Android devices), or Amazon (for purchases on Kindle devices).
Customer Support Correspondence
When you ask for assistance from our Customer Support team, we will collect and store the contact information you provide (generally your name and e-mail address), information about your game play or activity on the Service, and your username or ID number. We will also store the correspondence and any information contained within.
Information about Players and Play
To provide a richer game play and social experience, We collect information about your play and interaction with other players. The bulk of this information is collected and stored through the use of Log Files, which are files on our web servers that record actions taken on our games and websites.
You may be able to take part in certain activities on our websites or games that give you the opportunity to communicate or share information not just with Escape MU, but also with other users of our Service. These include: Participating in player forums and message boards, posting public comments to other users' profiles or gameboards, sending private messages or invitations to other users, either directly on our websites or to their e-mail accounts, chat with other users, posting web links.
We may record and store archives of these communications on Escape MU's servers to protect the safety and well being of our users and Escape MU's rights and property in connection with the service. You acknowledge and consent to the recording and storage of such communications for these purposes.
Cookies and Automated Information Collection
When you access the Service, We collect certain technical information in order to (i) analyze the usage of our sites and services; (ii) provide a more personalized experience; and (iii) manage advertising. We and service providers acting on our behalf, such as Google Analytics, use Log Files and tracking technologies to collect and analyze certain types of technical information, including cookies, IP addresses, device type, device identifiers, browser types, browser language, referring and exit pages, and URLs, platform type, the number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, game state and the date and time of activity on our websites or games, and other similar information. In some cases, We will associate this information with your user ID number for our internal use.
We may also employ other technologies including (i) web beacons, which allow Us to know if a certain page was visited or whether an e-mail was opened; (ii) tracking pixels, which allow Us to advertise more efficiently by excluding our current users from certain promotional messages, identifying the source of a new installation or delivering ads to you on other websites; and (iii) local shared objects also known as flash cookies, which help Us to prevent fraud, remember your in-game preferences and speed up load times.
We may collect or receive information from other sources including (i) other Escape MU users who choose to upload their email contacts; and (ii) third party information providers. This information will be used to supplement your profile - primarily to help you and your friends connect. It will be combined with other information We collect.

Sharing of Your Information
We may share your information with third parties, that is parties other than Escape MU, in the following circumstances:
Third Party Service Providers
We will provide your information to third party companies to perform services on our behalf, including payment processing, data analysis, e-mail delivery, hosting services, customer service and to assist Us in our marketing efforts. We direct all such third party service providers to maintain the confidentiality of the information disclosed to them and to not use your information for any purpose other than to provide services on Escape MU's behalf.
Advertising of Third Party Products and Services
We do not actively share personal information with third party advertisers for their direct marketing purposes unless you give Us your consent. We may share (i) aggregated information (information about you and other users collectively, but not specifically identifiable to you); (ii) anonymous information; and (iii) certain technical information (including IP Addresses, MAC Addresses for mobile devices and mobile device IDs) to develop and deliver targeted advertising in the Service and on the websites of third parties. We may also allow advertisers to collect these types of information within the Service and they may share it with Us. Advertisers may collect this information through the use of tracking technologies like browser cookies and web beacons. The information collected may be used to offer you targeted ad-selection and delivery in order to personalize your user experience by ensuring that advertisements for products and services you see will appeal to you, a practice known as behavioral advertising, and to undertake web analytics (i.e. to analyze traffic and other end user activity to improve your experience). To learn more about behavioral advertising or to opt-out of this type of advertising for participating ad networks, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative or the Digital Advertising Alliance.
Escape MU games or their purchase pages may display an "offer wall" that is hosted by an offer wall provider. The offer wall allows third party advertisers to provide virtual currency to users in exchange for interacting with an advertisement or for completing a marketing offer that may include signing up for an account with one of those advertisers. These are not offers made by Escape MU. These offers may be displayed to you based on certain technical information, such as your geographic area or anonymous demographic information. After clicking on one of these advertisements, you will no longer be on a site hosted by Escape MU or a partnering social network. To properly credit user accounts and to prevent fraud, a unique identifier, in some cases your user ID number, will be shared with the offer wall provider.
Safety, Security and Compliance with Law
Your information, and the contents of all of your online communications (including without limitation chat text, voice communications, IP addresses and your personal information) may be accessed and monitored as necessary to provide the Service and may be disclosed: (i) when We have a good faith belief that We are required to disclose the information in response to legal process (for example, a court order, search warrant or subpoena); (ii) to satisfy any applicable laws or regulations; (iii) where We believe that the Service is being used in the commission of a crime, including to report such criminal activity or to exchange information with other companies and organizations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction; (iv) when We have a good faith belief that there is an emergency that poses a threat to the health and/or safety of you, another person or the public generally; and (v) in order to protect the rights or property of Escape MU.

Your Sharing and Messaging Options
Information We Receive from Third Party SNS Where You play a Escape MU Game If you play our games at a third-party SNS, Escape MU will be able to access and store profile and other information about you as described above.

Escape MU does not offer an "opt out" option for specific fields that are shared by the SNS where you access and play the game(s).
Privacy Policies of Linked Sites and Advertisers
Our websites and games may contain advertisements from companies other than Escape MU that may link to their own websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. If you have any questions about how these other websites use your information, you should review their policies and contact them directly.
Security of Your Information
Escape MU implements reasonable security measures to protect the security of your information both online and offline, and We are committed to the protection of customer information.
While We take reasonable precautions against possible security breaches of our websites and our customer databases and records, no website or Internet transmission is completely secure, and We cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur. We urge you to take steps to keep your personal information safe (including your account password), and to log out of your account after use. If your account is hacked, this may lead to unauthorized play of your Escape MU games, so be careful to keep your account information secure. If you have questions about the security of our websites, please contact us at email@example.com.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information over the Internet is not completely secure. Although We strive to protect your personal data, We cannot guarantee the security of your data while it is being transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once We have received your information, We have procedures and security features in place to try to prevent unauthorized access.
Your Privacy Rights
We do not share personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless you affirmatively agree to such disclosure, typically by "opting in" to receive information from a third party that is participating in a sweepstakes or other promotion on one of our sites. If you do ask Us to share your personal information with a third party for its marketing purposes, We will only share information in connection with that specific promotion, as We do not share information with any third party (other than our service providers) on a continual basis. To prevent disclosure of your personal information for use in direct marketing by a third party, do not opt in to such use when you provide personal information on one of our sites.
Right to Access
Users in certain jurisdictions have a right to access personal information held about themselves. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with applicable law.
