Please note that this policy applies only to sites maintained by NHNZ, and not to websites maintained by other companies or organizations to which we link.
2. PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED BY NHNZ
Personal information is information that identifies you and that may be used to contact you on-line or off-line. NHNZ may collect personal information from our online visitors during:
- Contest registration and prize acceptance;
- Warranty registration and requests;
- Customer support and/or technical service requests;
- Player match up and other head-to-head online competitions;
- Registration for games and/or special game-specific events;
Newsletter subscriptions, referral services, and other marketing surveys and email campaigns;
- Registration for service accounts;
- Product, service and/or subscription orders;
- Service requests from third party service providers on our site; and
Otherwise through use of our software, mobile or online services where personal information is required for use and/or participation.
Information collected will vary depending upon the activity and may include your name, email address, phone number, home address, birth date, mobile phone number and credit card information. Visitors may be asked to provide the name of their mobile service carrier, model of their mobile phone and a valid mobile number so that we may provide purchase instructions directly to their mobile phone. In that context, your mobile number will only be used to send you a text message with a link to download your game and will not be retained for any other purpose. Prize winners may be required to provide identification number for tax purposes, and will be used only for prize fulfillment.
3. OTHER INFORMATION COLLECTED FROM THIRD PARTIES
We may also receive other personal information from third parties in connection with the operation and distribution of our products and services as well as market and demographic studies that we use to supplement personal information provided directly by you. As with all other information, we use this data only for purposes consistent with this policy.
4. HOW NHNZ USES YOUR INFORMATION
NHNZ uses your information to fulfill your specific requests, purchase orders and to send you purchase confirmation and other account-related information. In addition, if you choose to receive communications from us about NHNZ products and news, the personal information you provide will allow us to send you messages about things including new products, features, enhancements, special offers, upgrade opportunities, contests and events of interest. You may also later opt out of this service from NHNZ.
Your participation in tournaments or other online game events is also conditional upon our collection, use, storage, transmission and public display of statistical data (such as your scores, rankings and achievements) generated through your participation.
5. WILL NHNZ SHARE MY INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES?
NHNZ will never share your personal information with third parties without your consent. We may, however, share non-personal data in the aggregate (in a form that does not personally identify you) with third parties. You may also opt in to allow NHNZ to share your personal information with companies and organizations that provide products or services that we believe may be of interest to you. To opt out of further communications from a marketing partner or sponsor with whom your information has been shared, please contact that partner or sponsor directly.
NHNZ does not disclose any personal information about children under 18 years of age who have registered on any of our websites to third parties, or share or disclose personal information other than as set forth in this policy, provided however, that in the event of a merger, acquisition, or the unlikely event of liquidation, management of NHNZ customer information may be transferred to its successor or assign regardless of age.
We may also disclose personal information to law enforcement, or the appropriate civil authorities to enforce legal rights and comply with the law, or to comply with an order from a government entity or other competent authority, or when we have reason to believe that a disclosure is necessary to address potential or actual injury, or when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, combat fraud and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on NHNZ.
6. REVIEW, CORRECTION OF YOUR INFORMATION, REQUESTING REMOVAL FROM MAILING LISTS AND DEACTIVATING YOUR ACCOUNT
We recognize a special obligation to protect personal information about young children. We urge parents to instruct their children to never give out their real names, addresses, or phone numbers, without permission, when on-line. Teenagers under the age of 18 should encourage their parents to review this policy and to contact us if they would like to evoke our opt-out policy to raise any concerns.
8. PUBLIC INFORMATION INCLUDING USER GENERATED CONTENT, ONLINE FORUMS, BLOGS AND PROFILES
You may choose to disclose information about yourself in the course of contributing user generated content to NHNZ’s sites or games or in our online chat rooms, blogs, message boards, user “profiles” for public view or in similar forums on our sites. Information that you disclose in any of these forums is public information, and there is no expectation of privacy or confidentiality there.
You should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit in the course of these public activities can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums.

12. HOW SECURE IS MY PERSONAL INFORMATION?
NHNZ has taken steps to assure that all information collected will remain secure and in its original form, i.e. free from any alteration. As such, access to all personal information is strictly controlled. When credit card information is transmitted, for example, we use industry standard SSL (secure sockets layer) encryption. In addition, we will take reasonable steps to assure that third parties to whom we transfer any date will provide sufficient protection of personal information.
