This is a legally binding contract between you and GamesMatter LLC, dba BadgeHungry. Please make sure you read it, because it is important. We’ve tried to make it as clear as possible, but we welcome your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have suggestions or questions. In addition, we’ve made these terms available under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license, so you can use and adapt them on your own web site as you see fit.
When we say “site,” we mean badgehungry.com and the services offered through that site. When we say “we,” “us,” “our,” or “BadgeHungry,” we mean GamesMatter LLC, dba BadgeHungry. When we say “your content,” we mean any text, graphics or other material which you post, upload, or otherwise share on the site; similarly, when we say “BadgeHungry content,” we mean the copyrightable text, graphics, and other material owned by GamesMatter LLC, dba BadgeHungry.

Accepting these terms
Please read these terms before using the site. If you do not agree to these terms, you may not access the site. If we make material changes to these terms, we’ll let you know either through the site or via email (at the email address you provide). If you do not agree to those changes, you may send a request to cancel any account you may have to email@example.com.
If you register with the site, you will be asked to provide certain personal information, including your name and email address. We will store your personal information, but will not share it with any third parties, except as necessary to provide the services offered, to monitor usage, and to improve the service. For example, we may store your personal information along with your files and data on a third party server such as Amazon Web Services; or we may use a third party analytics tool like Google Analytics or Kissmetrics to learn how you are using BadgeHungry, and how we can improve that experience. We also use your personal information to send you notifications about the service and to respond to customer support requests. We will never share your personal information with advertisers or send you promotions for unrelated services. You can access and change your personal information or cancel your account by logging in to your account settings page.
We may be required to disclose your personal information in order to:
* comply with the law or legal process;
* protect or defend our rights or property, or the rights or property of others;
* enforce these terms; or
* respond to claims that the content of any material on our system violates the rights of others.
If we must disclose your personal information in order to comply with the law or legal process, we will inform you (at the email address you provide) as soon as practicable, provided that it is lawful for us to do so.
We will also aggregate user information and perform statistical analyses of the collective behavior of our members and visitors, to measure overall demographics, and to analyze how to improve our service. We may share this information with third parties (such as Google Analytics), but such aggregate information does not contain personal information other than IP addresses. In addition, we may compile and disclose aggregate information about our users for promotional or other purposes. For example, we might want to disclose that a certain percentage of our users are located within a particular geographic area or play online most frequently in the mornings.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
We use session and login cookies, which help us keep track of when a person is logged in and determine the content or sites users link to, and which services people use. We will also capture login timestamps, and usage statistics, as well as IP addresses.
We will communicate with you via email, to the email address you provide to us. Some communications, such as emails informing you of new features, may be unsubscribed to via the unsubscribe link in the email. If you would like to cease all communications from us, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will cancel your account(s).
