What This Privacy Policy Covers

This policy covers how Big Fat Simulations treats personal information that it collects and receives through the Site. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available.

This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Big Fat Simulations does not own or control, or to people that Big Fat Simulations does not employ or manage.

Information Collection and Use

General

Big Fat Simulations collects personal information when you register with the Site, and when you enter promotions or sweepstakes that may be offered by Big Fat Simulations on the Site.

Big Fat Simulations uses information for the following general purposes: to fulfill your requests for products and services, improve our services, contact you, keep you informed about products and services that may interest you, conduct research, and provide anonymous reporting for internal and external clients.

Children

The Site is a general audience site and does not knowingly collect Personally Identifiable Information (PII) from children under 13 years of age beyond an e-mail address used only once for verification purposes. While children under the age of 13 can create/save designs, they are not permitted to post in the forums. We strongly encourage parents to review the Privacy Policies and Terms of Use of these other sites before allowing your children to view them.

If you are a child under the age of 13, the email address we collect from you during the registration process will be deleted from our records immediately following the verification process, and we will not use the email address to contact you or share it with any third parties.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Big Fat Simulations does not rent, sell, or share personal information collected from the Site about you with non-affiliated companies except to provide products or services you've requested, when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances:

We respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.

We believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of Big Fat Simulations's terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.

We transfer information about you if Big Fat Simulations is acquired by or merged with another company. In this event, Big Fat Simulations will notify you before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Links

The Site may contain links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other web sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our Site to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy policy applies solely to information collected by Big Fat Simulations from the Site.

Third Party Advertising

The Site may display targeted advertisements based on personal information. Advertisers (including ad serving companies) may assume that people who interact with, view, or click targeted ads meet the targeting criteria- for example, women ages 18-24 from a particular geographic area.

Big Fat Simulations does not provide any personal information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad. However, by interacting with or viewing an ad you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the advertisement.

Advertisements that appear on the Site are sometimes delivered (or "served") directly to users by third party advertisers. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. These third party advertisers may also download cookies to your computer, or use other technologies such as JavaScript and "web beacons" (also known as "1x1 gifs") to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. Doing this allows the advertising network to recognize your computer each time they send you an advertisement in order to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. In this way, they may compile information about where individuals using your computer or browser saw their advertisements and determine which advertisements are clicked. Big Fat Simulations does not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed by the third party advertisers. Third party advertisers have no access to your contact information stored on the Site unless you choose to share it with them.

This privacy policy covers the use of cookies by Big Fat Simulations and does not cover the use of cookies or other tracking technologies by any of its advertisers.

The Site's advertisers may include financial service providers (such as banks, insurance agents, stock brokers and mortgage lenders) and non-financial companies (such as stores, airlines, and software companies).

Changing or Removing Information

Access and control over most personal information on the Site is readily available through the profile editing tools. You may modify or delete any of your profile information at any time by logging into your account. Information will be updated immediately. Removed information may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time but will not be generally available to members of the Site.

Where you make use of the communication features of the service to share information with other individuals on the Site, however, (e.g., sending a personal message to another user on the Site) you generally cannot remove such communications.
