Our primary goal in collecting information is to improve our Services by providing a richer, more engaging experience, and to effectively administer your participation.
(a) Registration Information: To access one of the Services we may ask you for personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. This includes, but is not
limited to, your name, phone number, credit card or other billing information, email address and home and business postal addresses. We also collect other information that you provide as part of the registration and administration and personalization of your account (including, without limitation, zip code, and individual preferences). Other than names and email addresses provided at your discretion, we don't generally collect any “Personally Identifying Information” about our users (such as social security number, telephone number, street address, driver’s license number, etc.), an exception being for billing and payments where we store your billing information such as name, street address, phone number. However, we may offer you the opportunity to submit other information about yourself (such as gender, age, occupation, hobbies, interests, zip code, etc.). In addition to information about yourself, you may choose to share information about yourself in other content such as in games ("Content"). Any action you perform with other players is considered public, and at your own discretion.
(b) Information from a SNS: When you access the Services on an SNS (such as, but not limited to: WeChat, Weibo, Line, Facebook or Google +), you allow Explorer to access certain information from your profile for that SNS. The information you allow Explorer to access varies by game and SNS, and it is affected by the privacy settings you and your friends establish at the SNS. You can control and find out more about these settings at the SNS where you play our games. For example, Explorer may access and store some or all of the following information, as allowed by you, the SNS and your preferences: your first and last name your profile picture or its URL your user ID number, which is linked to publicly available information such as name and profile photo the user ID numbers and other public data for your friends the login e-mail you provided to that SNS when you registered your physical location and that of your access devices your gender your birthday your interests
(c) Information from a Mobile Device: If you play Explorer games on a mobile device, we collect mobile device identifiers, including UDID, MAC Address and IP Address. In certain games we will create and assign to your device an identifier that is similar to an account number. We may collect the name you have associated with your device, device type, telephone number, country, and any other information you choose to provide, such as user name, character name, geo-location or e-mail address. We may also access your contacts to enable you to invite friends to join you in the Service.
(f) Finally, in order to provide the best possible service and to allow us to make certain internal reports and make recommendations, we collect aggregate information about the use of the Services, including information about users accessing the Services on other sites, such as internet protocol addresses, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, other browser history, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time (“Activity Information”). By using the Services, you consent to our retaining all the above-described information in anonymous form as long as Explorer sees fit.

register. If you are under 21, please do not attempt to register for any Services or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 21 may provide any personal information to or on any Services.

We do not sell or rent your “Personally Identifiable Information” to any third party. We may, however, use certain information about you that is not personally identifiable. We use
public information collected to determine the kinds of content that you would like to view and to assist any advertisers in targeting their advertising. We also use your name, email address and other information on our system to notify you of new product releases, service notifications, and to solicit your feedback and input. Those emails will contain links for preference management and where appropriate, unsubscribe links should you decide you do not want to receive further emails.
You understand and agree that we may access, preserve, and disclose any information we may have about you and the contents of your account if required to do so by law or in a good faith belief that such access, preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to avoid liability, to comply with legal process, such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, or court order, or to protect our rights and property, or that of our affiliates or the public. Explorer is not required to question or contest the validity of any search warrant, subpoena or other similar governmental request that Explorer receives.
Be advised that if you send messages or post material containing personal information, that information may be collected and used by others. You can terminate your account at any time which will remove your profile and other personal information from view. Explorer, however, may (but is not obligated to) keep information about you that is on its system following your termination. Please contact Explorer to terminate your account or for any other questions about your personal information.
You may decide to provide us with another person's email address so that person may be invited to join Explorer or so that we may facilitate your communication with other people through the Services (such as when you upload an address book). You may also provide us with another person's contact information for purposes of delivering information through SNS Apps. We use this information to contact and, if necessary, remind that person that he or she has been invited to join Explorer or received content through an SNS App. All invitees are provided with the option not to receive further invitations from Explorer. We may disclose such information if required to do so in order to comply with legal process, as described above.
Explorer may contain links to other web sites, and content in the Services may be hosted by other web sites. In addition, as described above, most content offered through the Services is served or hosted by other sites. These other sites maintain their own policies regarding cookies and the collection and use of personal information. It is up to you to review those policies yourself.
We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on the Services. Our system and the third-party advertising technology uses information derived from Users’ activity,
Explorer’ cookies on your hard drive, your visits to our site, and the Services you use, to target advertising within the Services. In addition, our advertisers may use other third-party advertising technology to target advertising on our site and other sites. In the course of advertisements being served to you, a unique third-party cookie or cookies may be placed on your computer. Similarly, third-party advertising companies may provide us with pixel tags (also called “clear gifs” or “beacons”) to help manage and optimize our online advertising. Beacons enable us to recognize a browser's cookie when a browser visits the site on which the beacon is located, and to learn which banner ads bring users to a given site.
Explorer does not provide any Personally Identifiable Information to third-party advertising companies. Note, however, that if an advertiser asks Explorer to show an advertisement to users with certain characteristics (for example, women ages 18-24) or a segment of that group (for example, women ages 18-24 who have viewed certain categories of content) and you respond to that advertisement, the third-party advertising company may conclude that you have the characteristics of the audience that they are trying to reach.
Explorer is very concerned with safeguarding your information. Your account information is located on a secured server behind a firewall. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). (To learn more about SSL, go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_Sockets_Layer). Because email and instant messaging are not recognized as secure communications, we request that you not send private information to us by email or instant messaging services. If you have any questions about the security of the Services, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Under the state of California (United States of America) law, California Residents who have an established business relationship with Explorer or one of its subsidiaries may choose to opt out of Explorer disclosure of personal information about them to third parties for direct marketing purposes.
