For example, cookies are necessary upon login so as to maintain session information which is crucial for the smooth functioning of the Services.

You may modify this configuration by editing your browser options to stop accepting cookies, limit cookie acceptance to a 'white list' of trusted websites, or to prompt you before accepting cookies from any web sites you visit.

Third-Party Information Collection

Gametize makes use of third-party services including but not limited to Zopim, Get Satisfaction, Flurry and Google Analytics to further understand how people use the Services. Get Satisfaction is basically a feedback channel through which we get to know about how users think of our Services. On the other hand, Google Analytics collects information - including but not limited to cookies and your IP address - sent by your browser as part of a web page request. Google also receives this information and their use of it is governed by their Privacy Policy.

Usage of Collected Information

Gametize collects your information primarily to improve our Services. For example, we may use your contact information such as your email addresses to update you regarding the Services, make important announcements or market to you.
