Introduction

We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting it through our compliance with this privacy policy. This privacy policy describes the types of information we may collect from you or that you may provide in connection with any Nevways, including its affiliate ("Nevways") website and mobile game or mobile application (together the "Applications"), our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting and disclosing that information and your choices about such uses and disclosures.

We encourage you to read this privacy policy carefully when using the Applications. By submitting Personal Data through our Site, Apps, or Service, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy and you expressly consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Data in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

This privacy policy applies to information we collect:

• through the Applications,
• in e-mail, text and other communications between you and the Applications, or

It does not apply to information collected by:

• us offline or through any other means, including on any other Application operated by us or any third party (including our affiliates and subsidiaries); or
• any third party (including our affiliates and subsidiaries), including through any application or content (including advertising)Â that may link to or be accessible from or on the Applications.

Please read this privacy policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how we will treat it. If you do not agree with our policies and practices, your choice is not to use the Applications. By accessing or using the Applications, or by clicking to accept or agree to the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy when this option is made available to you, you agree to this privacy policy. This privacy policy may change from time to time (see "Changes to Our Privacy Policy"). Your continued use of the Applications after we make changes to this privacy policy is deemed acceptance of those changes, so please check this privacy policy periodically for updates.

Types of Data We Collect & How We Collect It

"Personal Data" means data that allows someone to identify or contact you, including, for example, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, as well as any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing data. “Anonymous Data” means data that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Data; Anonymous Data does not, by itself, permit the identification of individual persons. We collect Personal Data and Anonymous Data, as described below.

• We may collect Personal Data from you, such as your e-mail address, and password when you create an account to log in to our network ("Account").
• When you order the Service on our Site or App, we will collect all information necessary to complete the transaction, including your name, payment information, billing information and shipping information.
• If you provide us feedback or contact us via e-mail, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail, in order to send you a reply.
• We also collect other types of Personal Data that you provide to us voluntarily, such as your operating system and version, product registration number, and other requested information if you contact us via e-mail regarding support for the Service.
• We may also collect Personal Data, such as at other points in our Site or App that state that Personal Data is being collected.
• Our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) collect information from you, including your mobile device type, application version, browser type, computer or mobile operating system, Internet Protocol (IP) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer or mobile device when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), domain name, information about the way you use the application and/or a date/time stamp for your visit of the Site or use of the App or Service.
• Information that you provide by filling in forms on our Applications. This includes information provided at the time of registering to use our Applications, subscribing to our service, posting material on message boards or requesting further services. We may also ask you for information when you enter a contest or promotion sponsored by us, and when you report a problem with our Applications.
• Your responses to surveys that we might ask you to complete for research purposes.
• We may also collect and store personal information about other people that you provide to us. If you use our Applications to send others information that may interest them or messages through our system, we may store your personal information, and the personal information of each such recipient. Similarly, if you use our Applications to upload, share or distribute content (including videos, comments or other submissions), and such content contains personal information about others, such information may be stored in order to allow for such uploading, sharing or distribution.
• When you access our Applications from a mobile device like a tablet or phone, we may receive information about your location, your device, including one or more unique identifiers for your device, and your mobile carrier. We may use this information to provide you with location-based services, such as advertising, search results, and other personalized content. Most devices allow you to turn off location services.

You also may provide information to be published or displayed (hereinafter, "posted") on public areas of the Applications, or transmitted to other users of the Applications or third parties (collectively, "User Contributions"). Your User Contributions are posted on and transmitted to others at your own risk. Although, we may limit access to certain pages, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. Additionally, we cannot control the actions of other users of the Applications with whom you may choose to share your User Contributions. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that your User Contributions will not be viewed by unauthorized persons.

Information We May Collect Through Automatic Data Collection Technologies

As you navigate through and interact with our Applications, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions and patterns, including:


• details of your visits to our Applications, including any form of aggregate data, navigational data, tracking data, location data, click-stream data, or historical data, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Applications, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information, log files and other communication data and the resources that you access and use on the Applications; and

• information about your computer and internet connection, including your IP address, operating system and browser type and language, access times, the content of any undeleted cookies that your browser previously accepted from us. An IP, or "Internet Protocol", address is a unique number associated with your computer that may be communicated to other computers and servers when you use the Internet. The information collected may include the domain name of your internet service provider, referral data (e.g., the address of the last page you visited prior to clicking through to the Applications and the address of the exit page when you left our Applications)Â and browser and platform type (e.g., a Firefox browser on a Macintosh platform). We use this information to track how users are accessing and using the Applications.

The information we collect automatically is statistical data and may include personal information, or we may maintain it or associate it with personal information we collect in other ways or receive from third parties. It helps us to improve our Applications and to deliver a better and more personalized service, including by enabling us to:


• estimate our audience size and usage patterns;
• store information about your preferences, allowing us to customize our Applications according to your individual interests;
• recognize you when you return to our Applications.
• speed up your searches; and

The technologies we use for this automatic data collection may include:


• Cookies (or browser cookies) : Cookies are small text files that are stored in your web browser or downloaded to your device when you visit an Application. Cookies are then sent back to the originating Applications on each subsequent visit, or to another Applications that recognizes that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow an Application to recognize a user’s device. Cookies might be used for the following purposes: (i) to enable certain functions; (ii) to provide analytics; (iii) to store your preferences; and (iv) to enable ad delivery and behavioral advertising.

We do not require that you accept cookies and you may withdraw your consent to our use of cookies at any time by adjusting your browser’s privacy settings. However, if you decline to accept cookies, some functionality on our Applications may be disabled and you may be unable to access certain parts of our Applications. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you direct your browser to our Applications. Cookies can be either session cookies or persistent cookies. A session cookie expires automatically when you close your browser. A persistent cookie will remain until it expires or you delete your cookies. Expiration dates are set in the cookies themselves; some may expire after a few minutes while others may expire after multiple years.


• Web Beacons. Pages of the Applications and our e-mails may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also known as clear gifs, pixel tags, single-pixel gifs and web bugs) that are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users or to access cookies. Unlike cookies, which are stored on the user’s computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on the web pages (or in an email) and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Web beacons may be used to deliver or communicate with cookies, to count users who have visited certain pages or opened an e-mail, to understand usage patterns and for other related Applications statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain Applications content and verifying system and server integrity). We also may receive an anonymous identification number if you come to our site from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party Applications.

• Device identifiers. When you use a mobile device like a tablet or phone to access our Applications, we may access, collect, monitor, store on your device, or remotely store one or more "device identifiers". Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device’s operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by the Applications. A device identifier may deliver information to us or to a third party partner about how you browse and use the Applications and may help others or us provide reports or personalized content and ads. Some features of the Applications may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.

• Metadata. Metadata is usually technical data that is associated with User Contributions. For example, Metadata can describe how, when and by whom a piece of User Contribution was collected and how that content is formatted. Users can add or may have Metadata added to their User Contribution including a hashtag, comments or other data. This makes your User Contribution more searchable by others and more interactive.

Device permissions for Personal Data access

Depending on the User's specific device, this Application may request certain permissions that allow it to access the User's device Data as described below. By default, these permissions must be granted by the User before the respective information can be accessed. Once the permission has been given, it can be revoked by the User at any time. In order to revoke these permissions, Users may refer to the device settings or at the contact details provided in the present document. The exact procedure for controlling app permissions may be dependent on the User's device and software. Please note that the revoking of such permissions might impact the proper functioning of this Application. If User grants any of the permissions listed below, the respective Personal Data may be processed (i.e accessed to, modified or removed) by this Application.

• Identity
Used for finding the User's accounts on device for creation of the application accounts.

• Bluetooth sharing permission
Used for accessing Bluetooth related functions such as scanning for devices, connecting with devices, and allowing data transfer between devices.

• Camera permission
Used for accessing the camera or capturing images and video from the device.

• Contacts permission
Used for accessing contacts and profiles on the User's device, including the changing of entries.

• Phone permission
Used for accessing a host of typical features associated with telephony. This enables, for instance, read-only access to the “phone state”, which means it enables access to the phone number of the device, current mobile network information, or the status of any ongoing calls.

• Sensors permission
Used for accessing data from sensors that Users may use to measure what is happening inside their body, such as for instance, heart rate.

• Storage permission
Used for accessing shared external storage, including the reading and adding of any items.

Disclosure of Your Information

We want you to understand when and with whom we may share personal or other information we have collected about you or your activities on the Applications or while using our services. We may transfer your information and process it outside your country of residence, wherever the Applications, its affiliates and service providers operate.

We may disclose aggregated information about our users, and information that does not identify any individual, without restriction. We may combine non-personal information we collect with additional non-personal information collected from other sources. We also may share aggregated information with third parties, including advisors, advertisers and investors, for the purpose of conducting general business analysis. For example, we may tell our advertisers the number of visitors to our Applications and the most popular features or services accessed. This information does not contain any personal information and may be used to develop content and services that we hope you and other users will find of interest and to target content and advertising.

We do not share your personal information with others except as indicated below or when we inform you and give you an opportunity to opt out of having your personal information shared:

• To our subsidiaries and affiliates.
• To our authorized service providers that perform certain services on our behalf. These services may include fulfilling orders, processing credit card payments, risk and fraud detection and mitigation, providing customer service and marketing assistance, performing business and sales analysis, supporting our Applications functionality, and supporting contests, sweepstakes, surveys and other features offered through our Applications. These service providers may have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but are not permitted to share or use such information for any other purposes.
• To a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by us about our Application users is among the assets transferred.
• To third parties to market their products or services to you if you have consented to these disclosures.
• To fulfill the purpose for which you provide it.
• For any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information.
• With your consent.

We may also disclose your personal information:

• In response to a subpoena or similar investigative demand, a court order or other judicial or administrative order, or a request for cooperation from a law enforcement or other government agency; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law (including responding to any government or regulatory request). In such cases, we may raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us, in our sole discretion.
• When we believe disclosure is appropriate in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent, report or take other action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or other wrongdoing; to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of our company, our users, our employees, or others; to maintain and protect the security and integrity of our Applications or infrastructure; to comply with applicable law or cooperate with law enforcement, government or regulatory agencies; or to enforce our Applications terms and conditions or other agreements or policies.

Any third parties to whom we may disclose personal information may have their own privacy policies which describe how they use and disclose personal information. Those policies will govern use, handling and disclosure of your personal information once we have shared it with those third parties as described in this privacy policy. If you want to learn more about their privacy practices, we encourage you to visit the applications of those third parties.

How We Store Your Information

The information that we collect about you, including personal information, may be stored and processed in any country in which we, our affiliates or service providers maintain facilities.
We may transfer information that we collect about you, including personal information, across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world. If you are located in the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that we may transfer information, including personal information, to a country and jurisdiction that does not have the same data protection laws as your jurisdiction.

By using the Applications you consent to the transfer of information that we collect about you, including personal information, to any country in which we, our affiliates or service providers maintain facilities and the use and disclosure of information about you as described in this privacy policy.

We use commercially reasonable safeguards (including physical, electronic and procedural measures) to help safeguard the information that we collect about you from unauthorized access and disclosure secure and take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. Furthermore, only authorized employees are permitted to access personal information, and they may do so only for permitted business functions. In addition, we use encryption in the transmission of your sensitive personal information between your system and ours, and we use firewalls to help prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to your personal information.

We want you to feel confident using our Applications. However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information, searches, or other communications will always remain secure.

Choices About How We Use and Disclose Your Information

We strive to provide you with choices regarding the personal information you provide to us.

• You can choose not to provide us with certain personal information, but that may result in you being unable to use certain features of our Applications because such information may be required in order for you to register as a member; purchase products or services; participate in a contest, promotion, survey, or sweepstakes; ask a question; or initiate other transactions on our Applications.
• You may, at any time, update, correct, or delete certain personal information that you have provided to us by contacting us at the email address provided at the end of this privacy policy.
• You can set your browser to refuse all or some browser cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. To learn how you can manage your Flash cookie settings, visit the Flash player settings page on Adobe’s Applications.

It may take up to seven days for us to process an opt-out request. We may send you other types of transactional and relationship e-mail communications, such as service announcements, administrative notices, and surveys, without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them. Please note that opting out of receipt of promotional email communications will only affect future activities or communications from us. If we have already provided your information to a third party before you have changed your preferences or updated your information, you may have to change you preferences directly with that third party.
• If you submit personal information, you may delete your account with us at any time. If you delete your account, your personal information and any and all other account related information including, but not limited to, user profile data, sharing data and any other data, or content specifically associated with your account will no longer be accessible by you. After deleting your account, if you choose to have an account with us in the future, you will have to sign up for a new account as none of the information you previously provided or saved within your account will have been saved.
• You may permanently opt out of the DoubleClick cookie by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at Google Analytics opt-out page. The plugin lets you keep your opt-out status even when you clear all cookies.
• You can disable the location services on your mobile device or tablet. Most likely, these controls are located in the device’s settings menu. If you have questions about how to disable your device’s location services, we recommend you contact your mobile service carrier or your device manufacturer.

How We Protect Your Personal Information

We take appropriate security measures (including physical, electronic and procedural measures) to help safeguard your personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure. For example, only authorized employees are permitted to access personal information, and they may do so only for permitted business functions. In addition, we use encryption in the transmission of your sensitive personal information between your system and ours, and we use firewalls to help prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to your personal information.

The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Applications, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the Applications like message boards. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the Applications.

We want you to feel confident using our Applications. However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information, searches, or other communications would always remain secure. Users should also take care with how they handle and disclose their personal information and should avoid sending personal information through insecure email. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Applications.

Accessing and Correcting Your Information

You may, at any time, send us an e-mail at support@nevways.com to request access to, correct or delete certain personal information that you have provided to us, except personal information or data that is necessary for administration purposes or for fraud prevention measures. We cannot delete your personal information except by also deleting your user account. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.

If you delete your User Contributions from the Applications, copies of your User Contributions may remain viewable in cached and archived pages, or might have been copied or stored by other Applications’ users.

Any financial data that you have provided to us will only be shared with the Applications’ third party processors in order to initiate and complete any orders placed on your account. All credit card transactions and such are processed with industry standard encryption through third party processors who only use your information for that purpose. All financial data and information shall be considered private information and will not be shared by the Applications with third parties except with your authorization or when necessary to carry out all and any transactions requested by the user with the understanding that such transactions may be subject to rules, terms, conditions and policies of a third party. All such information provided to a third party and all transactions are not governed by this privacy policy. All such information provided to a third party is subject to their terms and conditions.

Changes to our Privacy Policy

We may modify or revise our privacy policy from time to time in our sole discretion and you agree to be bound by such modifications or revisions. Although we may attempt to notify you when major changes are made to this privacy policy, you are expected to periodically review the most up-to-date version,so you are aware of any changes, as they are binding on you.

All changes are effective immediately when we post them, and apply to all access to and use of the Applications thereafter. The updated version of our privacy policy supersedes any prior versions immediately upon being posted, and the prior version(s) shall have no continuing legal effect. If you do not review new terms as posted, then you agree that you have waived your right to do so, and you are therefore bound by the updated conditions, even if you failed to review the new ones. You are on notice of changes, and your failure to review the amended terms is your own omission. By continuing to use the Applications subsequent to us making available an amended version of our privacy policy, you thereby acknowledge, agree to and consent to such amendment.

This privacy policy does not create rights enforceable by third parties or require disclosure of any personal information relating to users of the Applications.

We do not guarantee error-free performance under this privacy policy. We will use reasonable efforts to comply with this privacy policy and will take prompt corrective action when we learn of any failure to comply with our privacy policy.
