Like most website operators, FoCo collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. FoCo’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use its website. From time to time, FoCo may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
FoCo also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. FoCo does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below. Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to FoCo’s websites choose to interact with FoCo in ways that require FoCo to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that FoCo gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our forums to provide a username and email address. In each case, FoCo collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with FoCo. FoCo does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
FoCo may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its services. However, FoCo does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
FoCo discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on FoCo’s behalf or to provide services available at FoCo’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using FoCo’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. FoCo will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, FoCo discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when FoCo believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of FoCo, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a FoCo website and have supplied your email address, FoCo may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with FoCo and our products. We primarily use our web sites to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. FoCo takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
FoCo makes uses of log files on all game servers to ensure that the quality of our servers is as high as possible. For instance, logs are used to prevent players with bad intentions to gain benefits over normal players by hacking or abusing bugs. The information inside the log files may include information about machine hardware, Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, in-game name/nick, chat messages, in-game commands and login attempts.
