PRIVACY POLICY

This Privacy Policy lays out how Quark Games LLC and its affiliates (“Quark Games”) will collect, use and protect your personal information. This privacy policy applies for all applications created by Quark Games LLC, which includes Valor, as well as the web sites associated therewith (collectively, the “Services”).

Please be aware, this Privacy Policy may be revised from time to time. By accessing any of the Services, you agree to the terms of the most recent version of this Privacy Policy. By agreeing, you authorize us to collect and use your information as outlined below. In the event you do not agree with any modifications made to this Privacy Policy, your only recourse is to cease use of the Services and, where applicable, delete the application. Please see the section entitled “Opting Out” to request the deletion of your profile.

Why do we collect information?

We collect information about our users in order to provide, market, administer and improve our web sites http://www.valorgame.com, games, communication, features and content as well as enable members to enjoy and easily navigate the Services. For a more detailed explanation, see below.

Remember, the Services often exist on third party platforms, Android and iOS, and your activities on these platforms may also be governed by that platform’s privacy policy, not ours.

What is personal information?

“Personal Information” can mean different things to different people. We define “Personal Information” as information that identifies you or can be used to contact you (online or offline). Personal Information can include things like your name, UDID (for iOS users), e-mail address, physical address, and telephone number.

How do we end up with personal information about you?

Since the use of Personal Information is necessary to market, provide and improve the quality of our games, we collect that information in a variety of ways:

Information from Third Parties: We may use service providers to provide you with a superior experience and they may share information they collect about you with us. Personal Information you provide to those third parties will fall under their respective privacy policies. If such a third party provides us with your Personal Information, we will handle it in accordance with this privacy policy (but be aware that the information retained by any third party is governed by their privacy policy, not ours).

Information from You: You may choose to directly provide us with information as part of normal game play, during the registration process or during communications with Quark Games. We will collect and record the information you have provided in the course of such usage.

Viral Components: If you refer another user to us, we may collect and retain information you provide to us such as the name and e-mail address of the referred individual.

What non-personal information do you collect?

In addition to Personal Information, we collect a variety of data that could not be used to identify or contact you. Data are used to enhance the quality of our games and other services. Here are some of the forms of non-personal information we collect:

Interaction Information: We may collect and retain information relating to your interaction with our Services. For example, we may monitor the length of time you play a game, the number and type of activities you participate in during a particular session, and your score.

General Use Information: We may also collect general information about your interaction with our Services such as your browser type, referring and exit URLs, click amounts, domain names, pages viewed, the amount of time spent viewing a particular page, the time of such activities, etc

User generated content

You may choose to share additional information about yourself through user generated content. User generated content may be defined as various kinds of content, publicly available, that is produced by end users (for example,, messages, and actions with other end users).

It is possible that the user generated content you provide may contain Personal Information. Please carefully consider which content you will contribute since we cannot guarantee protection for information you make publicly available through things such as comments, wall posts, reviews, etc.

Additionally, it is likely that user generated content will be disseminated broadly through third parties such as Facebook or Twitter. Please keep this in mind before sharing any content with us.

Further, users should be aware that such public data may be gathered by third parties with access to it (such as other users) and we cannot control those third parties’ use of such information.

What we do with your information

Improve Our Services. We may use the information we collect to improve the quality of our games, facilitate game play as well as offer new features to you. This might include looking at how certain segments of the player-base interact with our product and what areas they may be most interested in seeing more content. We will also use the information to optimize our content by locating bugs in our games. Additionally, we may display certain information within the game (such as your username) to permit other people to identify and interact with you.

Marketing. We may also use personal information to market the game or provide you with targeted content.

Notifications. We occasionally have a need to reach out to our players. Thankfully, the personal information you provide us with enable us to do that. We may contact you with game-related announcement from time to time. You may opt out of these communications.

We May Log, But We Will Not Disclose, Individual Internet Protocol Addresses. We may maintain log files which contain IP addresses for purposes such as traffic monitoring. An IP address is a numeric address assigned to your computer (or router) by your Internet Service Provider. We will not disclose individual IP addresses to third parties except to the extent necessary to prevent harm to third parties or it is required by law (as we specify below).

Aggregate Data. Occasionally, Personal Information and non-personal information is more useful when we look at our users’ information as a whole to get a better understanding of the general characteristics of our player-base. For example, knowing that 30% of our users are playing at a particular moment may be important.

We may disclose these general statistics (which will not include information capable of identifying or contacting any particular user) to enhance customer service, tailor the Services to your interests or optimize the Services.

Viral Components. You may decide to refer a friend to one of our Services. Typically this will be handled through built-in game mechanics that will not involve the transfer of any Personal Information to Quark Games. However, in the event you or a third party does provide us with Personal Information relating to a referral, we will store it to ensure the referral took place information.

Legal Requests and Harm Prevention. We may disclose information pursuant to subpoenas, court orders, or other requests if we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law. We may also share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activity, to prevent imminent bodily harm, or to protect ourselves and you from people violating the Terms of Service. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, courts or other government entities.

Transfer in the Event of Sale or Change of Control. If the ownership of all or substantially all of our business changes, we may transfer your information to the new owner so that the services we provide you can continue to operate. In such a case, your information would remain subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy.

Security of our site

We use encryption and authentication tools to protect the security of the information that you share with us. Once we receive your transmission, we will do our best to protect its security on our systems. For example, we protect personal information we gather on a secured server behind a firewall; it is not directly connected to the Internet.

Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to or from our Site, and you do so at your own risk. ACCORDINGLY, WE DISCLAIM LIABILITY FOR ANY THEFT, LOSS, OR INTERCEPTION OF OR ANY UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS OR DAMAGE TO ANY DATA OR COMMUNICATIONS. BY USING THE SITE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO ASSUME THESE RISKS.

Opting Out

You may review, update, correct or delete personal information we receive from Facebook by updating that information on your Facebook profile. If you elect to register with us and you would like to review, update, correct or delete that personal information, you may do so by e-mailing us at support@quarkgames.com and include sufficient detail in your email so that we may identify you and your profile.

Further, you may control certain aspects of the use of your personal information in the options of the particular application.

Cookies

We, and some of our third party service providers, may use cookies. A “cookie” is small file that we save on your computer’s hard drive that contains non-personal information. These cookies help to give you faster access to pages you have already visited. They also allow you to personalize your pages and optimize your experience on our Services. We also use cookies to help us figure out how many people visit our Services and how they interact with the Services.

You can disable cookies on your computer by indicating this in the preference or options menus in your browser. Disabling cookies may prevent you from properly using the Services or accessing the site.

Links

The Internet is a dynamic space and you may see links in the Services that might take you into that broader universe. Because we cannot control the activities of third parties, we cannot accept responsibility for your use of their services or for any use of your personal information by such third parties and we cannot guarantee that they will adhere to the same privacy and security practices as ourselves. The presence of a third party link within the Services does not represent an endorsement of the content of that third party’s link and Quark Games disclaims all liability arising from such content.

Children and privacy

The Services are not directed to children under the age of 13 years and children under the age of 13 are prohibited from using the Services.

We will never request personally identifiable information from anyone whom we know to be under the age of 13 without verifiable parental consent. By using the Game, you represent and warrant that you are at least 13 years old. If we become aware that a customer is under the age of 13 and has registered without prior verifiable parental consent, we will remove that user’s personal information.

We recommend that all minors 13 years and older seek parental consent before sending information about themselves to any individual or over the Internet.
