Information Collected and Used
Fifth Column’s primary objective in collecting user information is to provide and enhance the Service and to enable users to easily navigate and enjoy the Service. Fifth Column may use user information to analyze user behavior in Fifth Column’s games. For example, Fifth Column may analyze user information to determine how often a user plays a particular game, if a user purchases premium goods and other similar events.
When you use any of the Fifth Column games or applications, we may collect and record information through the social networking website you use to access the Service ("SN Website") or other third party source in accordance with the policies and terms of the SN Website or service provider. We may share such information with the SN Website for its use as permitted by the terms of your agreement and privacy settings with the SN Website.
The information we collect when you access the Service on an SN Website may include information that is visible on your social networking page such as: (1) your name, (2) SN Website user identification number and/or name, (3) locale, city, state and country, (4) sex, (5) birthdate, (6) time zone and (7) email address. We may also collect your email address directly from you when you access our Service. If you provide your email address in connection with a Fifth Column game, the email address will be retained by Fifth Column and we may use that email address to contact you about other Fifth Column games.
When you visit our Site or use the Service on an SN Website, your computer’s operating system, Internet Protocol (IP) address, access times, browser type and language and referring Web site addresses are logged automatically. We also collect information about your usage and activity, such as number of clicks, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time of this activity. We use this information to monitor and analyze use of the Services.
We may also acquire information from you through (1) your access and participation in message boards on the Service, (2) your email of a question to our customer support , (3) your purchase of a virtual product of any type, (4) your participation in surveys regarding the Service or (5) your participation in a sweepstakes or contest through the Service. Please note that because third parties manage the purchases of virtual goods offered by the Service, we do not have access to your credit card details and billing information.
If you launch any of our games or applications on a mobile device, we also collect information regarding your device type, iOS advertising identifiers, HTML cookies, Open UDID, referral URL, operating system and version, IP address and unique device ID (UDID). If you sign into the Service on your mobile device with Facebook Connect we will collect information that is visible via your Facebook account such as: (1) your first and last name, (2) Facebook ID, (3) Profile Picture/URL, and (4) list of Facebook friends. This information will be primarily used for social features.
If you provide your email address in connection with a Fifth Column game, the email address will be retained by Fifth Column and we may use that email address to contact you about your gaming experience. We may also use part of your email address for friend-to-friend interaction.

California Privacy Rights
Fifth Column does not share personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless you affirmatively agree to such disclosure, typically by "opting in" to receive information from a third party that is participating in a sweepstakes or other promotion on one of our sites. If you do ask Fifth Column to share your personal information with a third party for its marketing purposes, Fifth Column will only share information in connection with that specific promotion, as Fifth Column does not share information with any third party (other than our service providers) on a continual basis. To prevent disclosure of your personal information for use in direct marketing by a third party, do not opt in to such use when you provide personal information on one of our sites.

We have put in place reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to secure your information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to overcome those measures or use your information for improper purposes.
