Privacy Policy

The privacy of Alien Gem Wars players is important to us.

We recognize that privacy of your personal information is important. Here is information on what types of personal information we receive and collect when you use the Alien Gem War app, visit aliengemwar.com, or visit candlelightstories.com, and how we safeguard your information. We never sell your personal information to third parties.

Log Files
As with most other websites, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files includes your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as Time Warner, AOL or Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.

Cookies and Web Beacons
We do use cookies to store information, such as your personal preferences when you visit our site. This could include only showing you a popup once in your visit, or the ability to login to some of our features, such as forums.

We also use third party advertisements on candlelightstories.com and aliengemwar.com to support our sites. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed, or if you are on a mobile device and what type of operating system that device has. This is generally used for geo-targeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).

You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.

Games
We offer games on on the App Store, aliengemwar.com, and candlelightstories.com. Some of these ask users to input a player name. It is never necessary to do so. A player name may be left empty and should simply be an invented name for the purposes of playing the game only. Some of the games store scoring information in a database. Some of the games also store player progress through a game. This information does not contain any identifying information such as IP addresses. It only includes auto-generated ID numbers or made up player names.

Our Alien Gem War app available on the App Store uses the Apple Game Center to store player names and scores on the Alien Gem War leaderboard. This is the only data the game stores and is used solely for the purpose of displaying the leading players and scores in the game. Players do not need to have Game Center accounts in order to play the game.

Purchases
Whenever we offer an item for sale or a digital download we use established and trusted online merchant services such as Amazon.com or Paypal.com. Those services provide their own secure environments for online transactions and provide their own privacy policies.
