- When creating a user account, contacting customer support or making a purchase through the Site, we may collect certain content provided through such actions.
- When posting on any online community, forum or any other page established by us or on our behalf in connection with the use of the Site, we may collect and analyze all content provided or otherwise uploaded by our users, and such content will not be subject to any privacy expectations by its lawful contributor.

You understand that the manner in which we collect your information might defer on the basis of the device you use to access or otherwise use the Site or any related content or features.
Please note that while in general you are not obligated to actively provide any information, some information may be required in order to use the Site.
What Information Do We Collect?
We may collect and store information which identifies or relates to you personally, such as your name, profile picture, photographs, unique user account ID, your financial and billing information, contact information, email address, etc. (the “Personal Information”).
Please note however, that any Personal Information which you choose to make publically available, whether on forums, groups or otherwise, will not be deemed, to the extent permitted by applicable law, as subject to your expectation of privacy or deemed as personal, and may be treated accordingly by us.
We collect and aggregate non-identifying information regarding your use of the Site and its features, including, for example, the type, model, ID and location of the device through which the Site is accessed, services that interested you or which you have utilized, the type of operating system and browser you are using and its settings, your IP (Internet Protocol) and/or MAC (Media Access Account) address, gender, location, groups you are a member of, fields of interests, the URL you have come from and the time spent at that URL, number of clicks, content of Cookies set by us (as further detailed below) and your domain type and server, your gameplay session, any content posted by you on public forums or communities associated with the Site, or otherwise (“Non-Personal Information”).
Non-Personal Information collected can also become Personal Information if and when aggregated by us to a scope which identifies you personally.
Please note however, that generally Non-Personal Information is aggregated separately for each specific IP or device ID. That said, the ID of your device does not contain any information regarding your identity and the same applies to IP addresses which, while identifying a device connected to the Internet and its general location, are in themselves anonymous and contain no information regarding the identity of the ultimate person using the device – such identity should be known solely to your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
Moreover, IP addresses assigned by ISPs are generally (although not always) dynamic and subject to frequent changes – static IP addresses are generally assigned only at subscriber’s specific request and frequently require an additional fee. We assume that the IP of your device is dynamic, unless we have a reason to believe otherwise.
