General
Artificial Life, Inc. and its group members, including Artificial Life Asia Limited, Artificial Life Europe GmbH, Artificial Life Japan K.K., Artificial Life Investments Ltd. and Green Cortex, Inc., are committed to protecting the privacy of visitors to their websites and this privacy policy explains our practice in relation to the collection, retention, storage, and sharing of data.

Collection of Information
We may collect personal data from you, such as your name and email address, which will be processed for the specific purpose given at the time or for any purpose stated in this privacy policy. Such purposes may include but are not limited to the purchasing of mobile games, lotteries, contests, providing product information, handling of complaints, enquiries or feedback. The provision of personal data or any information is usually voluntary. However, any failure to supply all information requested by us may result in us being unable to process your requests fully or at all.

Security
We will use data encryption systems as we judge appropriate for the collection of your personal information over the internet, based on the type of information being collected. Unfortunately no security measures are 100% secure and it is possible that others may intercept the information you are sending. Any personal data we receive from you will not be disclosed to any third party except as provided herein, as notified to you at the time of collection, or with your prior consent. We do not rent, trade or sell information gathered online for commercial purposes.

Cookies
When you visit one of our websites, we may send you a cookie. A cookie is a small file that can be placed on your computer's hard disk for record keeping purposes. We may use these to do a number of things such as help us to recognize you when you next visit one of our websites and present the information displayed to you or compile anonymous statistics related to the take up or use of services or patterns of browsing. A third party collects such data on our behalf to measure web site performance. Information collected is aggregated for reporting purposes. No personally identifiable information is collected by this service. The use of this service assists us in measuring and improving the structure and ease of use of our web sites.

We may also collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type for system administration.

We may use data held about you in the following ways:

  • to ensure that content from our site is presented in the most effective manner for you;
  • to provide you with information, products or services that you request from us or which we feel may interest you, where you have consented to be contacted for such purposes;
  • to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us;
  • to allow you to participate in interactive features of our service, when you choose to do so; and
  • to notify you about changes to our services or products.

If at any point we decide to use personal data in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify you via email or by posting a prominent notice on our website thirty days prior to implementing the change. Your express consent will be needed before we use your personal data in a different manner.
