You can control and find out more about these settings at the SNS where you play our games. For example, 417 App Studios may access and store some or all of the following information, as allowed by you, the SNS and your preferences:

Messages, such as invites to friends to join you in a game, may include your name and profile photo. We may also send promotional e-mail messages directly or in partnership with parties other than 417 App Studios. Each Promotional Communication will generally offer recipients various choices about receiving additional messages.

SHARING OF YOUR INFORMATION

We DO NOT share your information with any third parties for any purpose.

SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION

417 App Studios implements reasonable security measures to protect the security of your information both online and offline, and We are committed to the protection of customer information.

For user accounts registered directly with 417 App Studios profile information is protected by the password each member uses to access their account. It is important that you protect and maintain the security of your account and that you immediately notify Us of any unauthorized use of your account. If you forget the password to your 417 App Studios account, the game/app allows you to request that instructions be sent to you that explain how to reset your password.

While We take reasonable precautions against possible security breaches of our websites and our customer databases and records, no website or Internet transmission is completely secure, and We cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur. We urge you to take steps to keep your personal information safe (including your account password), and to log out of your account after use. If your SNS account is hacked, this may lead to unauthorized play of your 417 App Studios games, so be careful to keep your account information secure. If you have questions about the security of our websites, please contact Us at PuzzlePix1@gmail.com.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information over the Internet is not completely secure. Although We strive to protect your personal data, We cannot guarantee the security of your data while it is being transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once We have received your information, We have procedures and security features in place to try to prevent unauthorized access.

CHANGES TO OUR PRIVACY POLICY

If We decide to make material changes to our Privacy Policy, We will notify you and other users by placing a notice on 417 App Studios.com or by sending you a notice to the e-mail address We have on file for you. We may supplement this process by placing notices in our games and on other 417 App Studios websites. You should periodically check www.417appstudios.com and this privacy page for updates.
