Information Collection and Use Practices
When you play a game, your Yahoo! ID or alias may be visible to the public, depending on the game that you play.
You can play games under a variety of identities without revealing your primary Yahoo! ID by creating an alias.
An alias consists of a name and some information that you show in a profile to other players.
When a user clicks on your Yahoo! ID or alias, they can send you an instant message or view the information you entered in your profile.
If you participate in certain games, we may use the email address that you specify in your account information to send you an email regarding your game or prize status.
You must be logged-in in order to rate a game and write a review. You may also post your ratings and reviews as updates.
Email a Friend
You must be a logged-in, registered Yahoo! user to use the "Email" feature.
In order to use the "Email" feature, you must also enter your friends email address(es).
You have the option of entering a personal message that may include personally identifiable information.
Your email address will be visible to the recipient.
Yahoo! does not use the names or email addresses from this service for any marketing purposes.
Information Sharing and Disclosure Practices
Yahoo! may use third party service providers acting on behalf of Yahoo! to provide online games, downloadable purchases and subscription services. Some service providers may ask for personal information and require that you register with them before accessing the game. These service providers may only use your information to provide the requested services and have no independent right to use your information for other purposes.
