A reference to the Games shall be deemed to also refer to the Website.
Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website to recognize your device the next time you visit. We use the term “cookies” in this Policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.
There are many functions cookies serve. For example, they can help us to remember your username and preferences, analyze how well the Games are performing, or even allow us to recommend content we believe will be most relevant to you.
Certain cookies contain personal information – for example, if you click to “remember me” when logging in, a cookie will store your username. Most cookies will not collect information that identifies you, but will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use the Website.
Generally, our cookies perform up to three different functions:
Some cookies are essential for the operation of the Games. If you opt to disable these cookies, you will not be able to access or use all of the features that the Games incorporate.
We utilize other cookies to analyze how our visitors use the Games and to monitor performance. This allows us to provide a high-quality experience by customizing our offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that may arise. For example, we might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages.
We use functionality cookies to allow us to remember your preferences. For example, cookies save you the trouble of typing in your username every time you use the Games and recall your customization preferences.
We do use or allow third parties (including Facebook) to serve cookies that fall into the three categories above. For example, like many companies, we use Google Analytics to help us monitor our traffic. We may also use third party cookies to help us with market research, revenue tracking, improving site functionality and monitoring compliance with our Terms and Conditions of Service.
As we have explained above, cookies help you to get the most out of the Games.
However, if you do wish to disable cookies then you can do so by amending the settings within your browser or mobile device.
Please remember that if you do choose to disable cookies, you may find that certain sections of the Games do not work properly.
