We at Dames Making Games ("DMG") have created this Privacy Policy because we know you care about how information you provide to us is used and shared. This Privacy Policy describes how we gather information from you when you visit the DMG website located at www.dmg.to and its affiliated websites (collectively referred to as the “Site”), and how we may use and share that information. By visiting our Site, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy and the accompanying Terms of Service.

In this Privacy Policy, the words “we,” ‘us” and “our” refer to DMG.

Collected Information and Use

If you desire to have access to certain restricted sections of the Site, you will be required to become a registered user, and to submit certain personally identifiable information to DMG (“Personally Identifiable Information”). Personally Identifiable Information may include your name, email address, password, and your location. Your name may be publicly displayed on the Site if you engage with certain features, such as registering for an event, publishing a project, or writing a comment or blog post. Your password and email address will never be publicly displayed.

You may enter additional content including your username, biography, skills, photos, profile image, questions, projects, verbs, or other content or submissions (collectively referred to as the “User Content”). User Content may be viewable by the public. It is your responsibility to ensure that you do not submit any User Content that you do not want publicly displayed, and that nothing you submit includes proprietary information, information that’s illegal to make public, or personal information about you such as your social insurance number.

We use the Personally Identifiable Information you provide in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. For instance, we will use the Personally Identifiable Information you input during the registration process to administer access to the Site. We also use your Personally Identifiable Information and other non-personally identifiable information collected through the Site to help us improve the content and functionality of the Site and to better understand the users of our Site. In addition, we may use your Personally Identifiable Information to update you about the Site. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such information or communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications.

DMG, or a third party service provider that does not have access to your Personally Identifiable Information, may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to the Site. Our servers may automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a DMG website. These server logs may include information such as the page(s) you visited, your Internet Protocol address, cookie information, web browser type, browser language, and the date and time of your request. DMG uses this traffic data to help diagnose problems with its server(s), analyze trends and administer the Site.

Cookies

Like many websites, we use “cookie” technology to collect additional website usage data and to improve the Site and our service. A cookie is a small data file that we may transfer to your computer’s hard disk. We do not use cookies to collect Personally Identifiable Information. DMG may use session cookies to improve the Site and our service, for example, to keep you logged in to your user account for a number of days.

You can set your web browser to refuse all cookies, but some DMG features and services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled.

Sharing your Information

DMG is not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personally Identifiable Information with certain third parties including those set forth below:

Agents and Related Third Parties

DMG sometimes uses other companies to perform certain business-related functions. For example, we may pass your Personally Identifiable Information to our designated service provider(s) in order to process payments. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we provide them only with the information that they need to perform their specific function.

Legal Requirements

DMG may disclose your Personally Identifiable Information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) comply with a legal obligation, (b) protect and defend the rights or property of DMG, (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Site or the public, or (d) protect against legal liability.

Accessing and Modifying Personally Identifiable Information and Communication Preferences

You may access, review, and/or make changes to Personally Identifiable Information that you have provided to us by logging in on the Site, clicking on "Profile."  In addition, you may manage your receipt of non-transactional communications by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link located on the bottom of any DMG marketing e-mails.  You cannot opt-out of receiving transactional e-mails related to your account with DMG.

Children

DMG is not directed at individuals under thirteen years of age, the Site does not knowingly accept registrations from children under thirteen years of age, and we do not intend to collect any Personally Identifiable Information from such individuals. We recommend that minors over the age of thirteen ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet.

Your Acceptance of this Privacy Policy

By using the Site, you signify your assent to this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Site. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes.

Credit Card Security

DMG does not store credit card information. Any credit card transactions are transmitted to a secure financial gateway, and we endeavor to protect the security of your payment information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. Credit card information is stored in an encrypted form by Stripe.com, our payment gateway provider. However, we are unable to guarantee that the security measures we take will not be penetrated or compromised or that your data will remain secure under all circumstances.

Confidentiality

DMG is very concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your Personally Identifiable Information. You, too, need to strive to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer by signing off once you have finished using a shared computer.
