Information Collected By Lootcakes
We may collect information that you provide to us in connection with your use of the Service when you (A) register as a user of the Service; (B) make changes to your user profile information; (C) send e-mail messages, forms, or other information to us or other users through the Service; (D) post or contribute content via the Service; or (E) interact with the Service. If you register for a Lootcakes account, you will be required to provide your name, e-mail address, and will be prompted to create a password. We may require you to provide your home or physical address. You may also choose to provide additional information in connection with your Lootcakes account.
Operation of the Service (including our ability to generate revenues and fund your rewards) requires that Lootcakes detects and records your game-related purchases. We do so by collecting the game-related purchase receipts sent to you via e-mail. If you want to earn rewards for sharing your receipts, we require that you use one of the methods we provide to link your email account to Lootcakes. This allows us to efficiently collect your e-mailed receipts, to verify their authenticity, and to mitigate the risk of e-mail spoofing, fraud or other violations of the Lootcakes terms of service (the “E-mail Linkage Purpose”). To perform the E-mail Linkage Purpose, Lootcakes will only search for and collect from your linked e-mail account(s) those e-mails sent by: (a) the operators of games, game-related platforms and/or game-related devices, and (b) the provider of your linked e-mail account(s) (together, your “Approved Senders”). By creating an account or by accessing or using the Service you hereby authorize Lootcakes to access your linked e-mail account(s) and any associated applications developed by your linked e-mail account provider(s) that contain settings affecting the accessibility of your linked e-mail account(s) (together the ”Linked E-Mail Accounts”) to: (1) collect e-mails from your Approved Senders; (2) perform the E-mail Linkage Purpose; and (3) adjust your Linked E-mail Accounts settings to: (a) enable IMAP (which stands for Internet Message Access Protocol and is a technology that enables e-mail access via third party applications); and (b) enable signing in to your Linked E-mail Accounts (using your Linked E-Mail Accounts credentials) from any third party application (such setting in Gmail/Google called allowing “less secure apps” access). You consent to our use of your Linked E-mail Accounts credentials (including your e-mail address and password) to perform the aforementioned actions. For the avoidance of doubt, any adjustments made to your Linked E-mail Accounts settings will never include changing your password or disabling two-factor authentication (also known as “2-Step Verification”). You also hereby acknowledge that collected e-mails may include financial information, credit card information, and pre-paid gift card information. If Lootcakes collects information from your Linked E-mail Accounts that is deemed unnecessary to perform the E-mail Linkage Purpose, Lootcakes will delete such information as soon as reasonably practicable.
If you register for, or otherwise connect a Lootcakes account with a third-party network like Facebook, Google+, or Steam, and/or if you provide us with your affiliation or username to any such third-party network, you agree that we can use the information you and/or they provide on that third-party network account to pre-populate the registration and other relevant information fields of your Lootcakes account and/or to use such third-party network credentials to log you into the Service. If you connect your Lootcakes account to another network, you agree to comply with the terms and conditions and policies applicable to such network. Your use of third-party networks remains subject to the terms and conditions and policies you have agreed to with such third-party network providers.
Some portions of the Service allow you to submit comments, reviews, tags, ratings, pictures, and other content. This content may be displayed on the Service and may be viewable by other users of the Service. By posting or submitting content through the Service you acknowledge that other users will be able to access and use your content in accordance with the Lootcakes Terms of Service available at www.lootcakes.com/Legal/TermsOfService.
In addition, Lootcakes may collect and use technical data and related information, including, but not limited to, technical information about your device, system and application software, and peripherals, that is gathered periodically to facilitate the provision of software updates, product support and other services to you (if any) related to the Service. Lootcakes may use this information to improve its products or to provide services or technologies to you.
Cookies and Web Beacons; Do Not Track
The Service may include links to other web sites and other content from third-party businesses. Lootcakes does (and allows third parties to) track your actions through cookies and web beacons over time and across different web sites or platforms.
In addition, you may be able to adjust your browser settings or other settings so that “do not track” requests are sent to the web sites and mobile applications that you use. However, because the operation of the Service (including our ability to generate revenues and fund your rewards) depends on our collection of user behavioral data, Lootcakes will not disable tracking technology that may be active on the Service in response to any “do not track” requests that are sent to the Service.
How We Use Your Information
Data Monetization Uses: In addition, in order to generate revenues that support the Service and fund your rewards, Lootcakes may use information that we collect about you through the Service in the following ways (the “Data Monetization Uses”): (i) to contact you with information, including promotional, marketing and advertising information and recommendations that we believe may be of interest to you; (ii) to personalize, customize, measure, and improve our advertising or marketing and the advertising or marketing of our clients and partners; (iii) to create audiences consisting of similar consumers and to serve those audiences with advertising or marketing messages or to enable our clients and partners to do so; and (iv) to compile aggregated data for external business purposes.
If any personally identifiable information is shared with third parties for Data Monetization Uses, it will be restricted to the following data (the “Limited PII”): (A) game-related behavioral data, such as game-related purchasing, install, play, device, platform and social group affiliation data; (B) digital contact information or identifiers (such as your e-mail addresses, network usernames, IP addresses, cookies, web beacons, advertising identifiers and mobile identifiers); (C) demographic info such as age, gender and region. For the avoidance of doubt, Limited PII excludes your real name and street/mailing address.
By utilizing the Service, you consent to the use of your information for Data Monetization Uses.
