1.   INTRODUCTION

 

Universal Phoenix Group, LLC, through itself and its subsidiaries (“UPG” or “we”), operates several websites, including, but not limited to www.upg-corp.com, www.teammenfes.com, www.mud-  ld.com,  www.menfesinteractive.com (together, the “UPG Sites”), which provide a collection of online

services, including, without limitation, various online games, online forums, social networking features, personalized content and branded programming, and any other features, content or applications offered from time to time by UPG in connection with UPG’s business, including when the UPG Sites are accessed via the Internet, mobile or other device (collectively, the “UPG Services”).

 

This Privacy Policy applies to all “users,” including both those who use some of the UPG Services without being registered and “Members” who have registered with UPG to create a profile, or otherwise  participate in an activity on the UPG Services. The Policy describes UPG’s collection and use of users’ personal information (e.g., information that identifies a specific person, such as full name or email address) where that information is not otherwise publicly available on the UPG Services. It also describes generally UPG’s practices for handling non-personally identifiable information (e.g., interests, demographics and site usage) to the extent such information is associated with a particular user or user account.

UPG Collected Information

UPG Site Activity Information. When users access the UPG Services, we may collect certain non- personally identifiable information about those visits. For example, in order to permit your connection to the UPG Services, our servers receive and record information about your computer and browser,  including potentially your IP address, browser type, and other software or hardware information. If you access the UPG Services from a mobile or other device, we may collect a unique device identifier assigned to that device or other transactional information for that device in order to serve content to it. We also may use cookies and other tracking technologies (including browser cookies, pixels, beacons, and Adobe Flash technology including cookies), which are comprised of small bits of data that often include  an anonymous unique identifier. Websites send this data to your browser when you first request a web page and then store the data on your computer so the website can access information when you make subsequent requests for pages from that site. We may use these technologies to collect and store information about your usage of the UPG Services, including your actions while using the UPG Services, such as pages you have visited, search queries you have run, advertisements you have seen, as well as other anonymous, non-personally identifiable information. UPG may also use cookies and similar tools to relate your use of the UPG Sites to personal information obtained from you or a third party. For example,  if you’ve asked us to provide you information about our upcoming products or promotions, cookie and/or click stream data about your activities on the UPG Sites may allow us to limit the materials we provide   you to items we think you will find interesting, based on your prior online activities and preferences.

However, we will not coordinate your personal information and cookie or click stream information in this manner without first obtaining your express affirmative consent.

 

Third parties that support the UPG Services by serving advertisements or providing services, such as allowing users to share content or tracking aggregate site usage statistics, may also use these

 

technologies to collect similar information. UPG does not control these third-party technologies and their use is governed by the privacy policies of third parties using such technologies. For more information about third-party ad networks that use these technologies, see www.aboutads.info.

 

Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, but you can change your settings to notify you when a cookie is being set or updated, or to block cookies altogether. Please consult the “Help” section of your browser for more information (e.g., http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Block-or-allow-cookies). Users can manage the use of Flash technologies, including cookies, with the Flash management tools available at Adobe’s website, seehttp://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/security/privacy_policy/faq.html.

Please note that by blocking any or all cookies you may not have access to certain features or personalization available through the UPG Services.

Third Parties. To improve the quality of the UPG Services, we may supplement the information we collect with information from third parties. If you access the UPG Services through a third-party connection or log-in, we may also collect your user ID and/or user name associated with that third-party service, or any information you have made public in connection with that service or which the third party shares with partner services.

 

3.   NOTICE & CHOICE

 

Means of Notice. This Privacy Policy is the primary means by which UPG provides you with notice about its collection and use of your personal information. UPG will not use your personal information in a manner different from what is described in this Privacy Policy without your permission.

 

Privacy Policy Changes. UPG may modify this Privacy Policy as necessary. If we make material changes to this Privacy Policy that expand our rights to use your personal information, we will notify you to seek your consent through email or a prominent posting on the site.

 

Location of Data. The UPG Services are hosted in the United States. If you are a user located outside the United States, you understand and consent to having any personal information you provide transferred to and processed in the United States. U.S. data protection and other relevant laws may not be the same as those in your jurisdiction. As a result, please read this Privacy Policy with care.

 

Linked Websites or Services. The UPG Services may also be linked to sites or services operated by UPG affiliates (i.e., that are part of the News America Group: “Affiliated Companies”) or third parties, and may carry advertisements or offer content, functionality, games, newsletters, contests or sweepstakes, or applications developed and maintained by third parties. UPG is not responsible for the privacy practices  of any such third parties, and once you leave the UPG Services via a link, enable a third-party service, or click an advertisement, you should check the applicable privacy policy of the third-party site. Additionally, although all Affiliated Companies adhere to the News Corporation corporate Privacy Principles, users  who visit an Affiliated Company site should still refer to its separate privacy policy, which may differ in some respects from this Privacy Policy.

These outside  service providers are required to protect non-public personal information entrusted to them and not use it for any other purpose than the specific service they are providing to UPG.

 

To allow other users to find you. In order to locate My UPG Members that a user may already know in the physical world and/or want to get to know in the online world, UPG allows users to search for Members using information the user already knows, such as username, full name, or gamer profile, and identifies users matching that search information.
