The Information We Collect
1) My Bingo Applications on Partner-Operated Websites
In order to use My Bingo applications on partner-operated websites (e.g. Facebook, Friendster, etc.), you must 1) be a registered member of a partner site, and 2) install a My Bingo application in your partner site account. By installing our applications on your partner site account, you agree to the partner site's terms of service, which allow application developers to store certain information about you. The application developer terms of service vary from partner to partner in this regard.
When you install a My Bingo application in your partner site account, we assign you a unique identifying number and allow you to choose a default display name, which we retain. Your display name serves as your publicly visible identity within all websites and applications that serve My Bingo products. This includes but is not limited to Facebook, Myspace, Hi5, Friendster, Bebo, and mybingo.com websites. My Bingo reserves the right to limit changes to the display name for security reasons.
My Bingo abides by the terms of service of all partner sites. If you have any questions about your privacy, please contact email@example.com. My Bingo takes your privacy very seriously and will respond to all inquiries promptly.
2) My Bingo Applications on My Bingo-Operated Websites
In order to use My Bingo applications on My Bingo-operated websites , you must first complete the registration form and create a user name and password. During registration you are required to give contact information such as your name and email address. We use this information to contact you when another user interacts with your profile, or to update you with your friends' activities in our applications.
You have the option to provide demographic and professional information (such as education, interests, and resume) to us; we encourage you to submit this information so other users can interact with your profile.
If you choose to send an invitation to a friend to join a My Bingo website, you may choose to enter your friends' email addresses manually or import them from your email provider using a tool provided by My Bingo. My Bingo will automatically send your friend an email inviting him or her to visit the website to become a member or see the asset you sent them. Additionally, My Bingo stores this information in your account on your behalf so that you can easily forward My Bingo assets to your friends at a later date.
Your friend may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request that we remove this information from our database.
We will send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email or post this information on the website.
Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to deactivate your account.
As a free member, from time to time, My Bingo may offer special promotional emails in addition to system-related announcements to your email account or the address provided by you. You are not obligated to accept or participate in the offers.
Web Site Usage
As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users' movements around the site to improve our service, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
We do link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information. IP addresses are only tied to personally identifiable information in the event we try to identify possible fraudulent activities.
We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. A session ID cookie expires after you close you browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser's "help" file.
We use session cookies to confirm that users are logged in. As a convenience feature, we offer an option that will remember your login information for a period of time. This login information is encrypted and set in a persistent cookie so you don't have to enter it more than once. Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. If you reject cookies, you will not be able to sign in to use our site.
The Way Your Information Is Visible
The primary purpose of entering data into My Bingo is to build your My Bingo profile. Your profile is meant to be shared with fellow fans. As a user, you have control over how much information you choose to share with other fans.
We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to personally identify any individual.
Our Commitment To Data Security
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
My Bingo employs protected facilities, data encryption on your stored personally identifiable information, firewalls, intrusion detection, and many other security measures to protect your data. We have invested many capital and human resources into our infrastructure to secure the data of our users and will continue to make additional technology investments.
If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can send email us at email@example.com
Use Of Bulletin Boards
If you use a bulletin board or blog in our applications, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums. We do not recommend posting personally identifiable information on the Bulletin Board.
Our Commitment To Children's Privacy
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here by means of a notice on our home page.
Legal Responsibilities Disclosure
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site.
