Privacy Policy - WiiPlayable.com


Version 1/10/2007

At WiiPlayable.com, we aim to develop a user friendly, interactive database of Wii playable minigames (mostly Flash) available from around the web. Each game that we feature is selected for both its enjoyment and its compatibility with the Nintendo Wii Gaming System's unique motion sensitive controller. We recognize that privacy is an important issue, so we design and operate our services with the protection of your privacy in mind. This Privacy Policy outlines the types of personal information we gather when you use WiiPlayable's services, as well as some of the steps we take to safeguard it.

The majority of the following principles apply to the personally identifying information we may ask for and that you provide. "Personally identifying information" is information that individually identifies you, such as your name, physical address or email address.

Information Collected/Tracked by WiiPlayable

This refers to information not directly submitted by users to WiiPlayable. This is information we collect that is not personally identifiable, such as browser type and IP address. This information is gathered for all users to the site. We use your server, IP address, and browser-type related information in the general administration of WiiPlayable.

Information Submitted to WiiPlayable

  • Profile information as well as a username and optional photo are displayed to people in the WiiPlayable forums, to support the function of these gaming forums as a community where users can discuss various Nintendo Wii related topics.
  • NOTE: When posting comments in the 'games' area (not in the WiiPlayable forums), our handling of your privacy is identical to our privacy guidelines for the WiiPlayable forums.
  • Your email address, name, and any other personal information you provide will not be disclosed with other users unless you choose to specify this information in your WiiPlayable Forum profile.
  • We may also use a user's email address to send updates or news regarding our site, but the user may choose not to receive this email by following the opt out instructions contained within the email.

Sharing of the Information this Site Gathers/Tracks

As a matter of policy, except where you are expressly informed otherwise, we do not rent, sell, share, trade or give away any of your personal information unless required by law or for the protection of your membership. However, WiiPlayable may share profile information and aggregate usage information in a non-personally identifiable manner to advertisers and other third parties in order to present to members more targeted advertising, products and services. In such situations, we will never disclose information that could be used to personally identify you.

WiiPlayable does not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people or nonaffiliated companies except under the following circumstances:

  • We respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims;
  • We believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of WiiPlayable's terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.
  • We transfer information about you if WiiPlayable is acquired by or merged with another company. In this event, WiiPlayable will notify you before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.
