You may be required to share your personal information with such third parties for the aforementioned purposes and we may have access to the same directly or indirectly. You may not impersonate a user or another person, try to find a password, other account information or other information from an individual, or collect or harvest email addresses or other info. You're responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of such data you share and are accountable for all activities which occur in connection with the same. If we receive any of Your personal information that is transmitted to Our internal servers, we will protect such information and have implemented commercially reasonable physical, managerial, operational and technical security measures to protect the loss, misuse and alteration and to preserve the security of the personal information in Our care.

Information we may collect:

(i) Cookies: we use cookies and other similar technologies or electronic tools (e.g. web beacons, log files, scripts and eTags) (“Cookies”) to collect information to assign each visitor a unique, random number as a User Identification (User ID) to understand the User’s individual interests using the identified computer, to enhance Your experience when using the site to improve the responsiveness of the sites for Our Users. Cookies may be registered on the User's electronic communications equipment to make the website and service use easier and to collect statistics such as relating to attendance and access. Cookies are small files that, when placed on Your device, enable us to provide certain features and functionality. You have the option to permit the installation of such Cookies or subsequently disable them. Continuing to navigate the Website after having been informed means that You accept the data collection. You may accept all cookies, instruct the device or web browser to provide notice at the time of installation of cookies, or refuse to accept all cookies by adjusting the relevant cookie retention function in your device. However, in the event of your refusal to install cookies, AltWorld may be unable to operate as designed. Unless You voluntarily identify yourself (through registration, for example), We will have no way of knowing who You are, even if We assign a cookie to Your computer. The only personal information a cookie can contain is information You supply. A cookie cannot read data off Your hard drive. Our advertisers may also assign their own cookies to Your browser (if You click on their ads), a process that We do not control.

(ii) Our web servers automatically collect limited information about Your computer’s connection to the Internet, including Your IP address and Traffic Data, when You visit Our Site. (Your IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send You data — such as the web pages You view.) Your IP address does not identify You personally. We use this information to deliver Our web pages to You upon request, tailor Our site to the interests of Our Users, measure traffic within Our site and let advertisers know the geographic locations from where Our visitors come.

(iii) Data you provide us to use the services: If You communicate with Us in any manner including by e-mail, telephonic conversation, letter, or the like, any information provided in such communication may be collected by Us.

Our interest could be to provide You with the services and optimize the user experience and Our products. We may share Your information accordingly, with Our affiliates or other trusted business or persons. We reserve the right to disclose personal information or any other information if required to do so by law, law enforcement bodies and courts, or if in good faith if We believe that it is necessary to do so to protect and defend the rights, property or personal safety of Ours, Our platform, or Our Users, respond to claims that any posting or other content violates the rights of third-parties.

Although We have put in place security measures to maintain the privacy and integrity of Your Information, unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure.
