Freeplay uses your information to offer and provide our services and to support our core business functions. Some examples include:
• To fulfill your requests for services and communicate with you about those requests
• To complete your registration or sign up process
• To administer surveys
• To help us improve and customize our service offerings and resources
• To send you information about our services and promotions
• To protect the security or integrity of our website and our business
We do not sell or rent your personal information to third parties.
Some emails that we send you have no tracking in it at all e.g. order confirmation emails. Other emails we send we put in tracking so that we can tell how much traffic those emails send to our site but we do not know who has clicked so the data is anonymous e.g. our monthly newsletter. We use an opt-in standard for all the data collected, meaning we will only send you emails with your express consent. We also use an opt-out standard which means you always have the option to unsubscribe from our email newsletter.
In order to process payments online we require the billing address for the credit card used and our external payment provider, Paypal, requires your credit card details to check the address against the cardholder's details for security purposes.
