Information Concerning Cookies
Your privacy is important to Iplay and Iplay Enterprises (together with their subsidiaries and affiliates, “Iplay”).
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a web site, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. There are two types of cookies that we may use: session and persistent. Session cookies exist only during an Internet user’s online session. They disappear from the user’s computer when he or she closes the browser software. Persistent cookies remain on the user’s computer after the browser has been closed.
What information might we gather with cookies and why?
- Recognizing your user profile when you visit.
- Identifying when you visit our Sites.
- Identifying the pages that you view.
- Keeping track of the games that you view, play or download.
- Keeping track of items that you’ve placed in your shopping cart.
- Delivering content specific to your interests.
The cookie merely recognizes your browser, unless you choose to identify yourself voluntarily. You may choose to identify yourself, for example, by entering your username and password. If you do identify yourself, cookies can link to information regarding your account with us, including pages you have viewed or games you have played. Cookies are also used to identify you and your preferences when you return.
Who gathers this information and how is my privacy protected?
Third-party companies that provide optimization services and third-party advertisers may also drop cookies and gather information. We do not provide any personal information to advertisers or to third-party providers that display interest-based ads on our Sites. However, advertisers and other third-parties (including the ad networks, ad-serving companies, and other service providers they may use) may assume that users who interact with or click on a personalized ad or content are part of the group that the ad or content is directed towards.
How can I block or remove cookies?
You can control your preferences for cookies through your browser’s settings. For example, you can change the settings for cookies on Internet Explorer and Chrome as follows:
Internet Explorer: By selecting “Tools,” then “Internet Options,” then “Privacy,” and then either “Advanced” for general settings or “Sites” for site-by-site restrictions or exceptions.
Chrome: By selecting “Settings,” then “Under the Hood” then “Content Settings.”
At these locations, you can choose to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, have your browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or disable cookies altogether. You can also specify particular URL addresses (sites) for which you choose to make an exception (either to receive or not to receive cookies). Opting out only applies to the specific web browser on the specific computer that you make the change. If you use multiple computers or multiple web browsers, you must opt out using each one.
Please be aware that if you choose not to receive cookies from one of our Sites, some aspects of that Site will not function properly.
How can I opt-out from specific third parties dropping cookies?
As a general matter, you may opt-out of many advertisers’ cookies by doing so at the consumer opt-out portal provided by the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI), an association of advertising networks, data exchanges, and marketing analytics services providers. You can find a link to the NAI opt-out page here.
We allow third-party companies to serve ads and/or collect certain anonymous information when you visit our web site.

These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information.
