Glitchy Tasty may collect or track (1) the e-mail addresses of visitors that communicate with Glitchy Tasty via e-mail, and (2) information knowingly provided by the visitor in online forms, registration forms, forums, surveys, contests, polls, e-mail, the “Contact Us” section of glitchytasty.com, and other online avenues (including, without limitation, demographic, interests, behavior, and personal profile data), (3) the home server domain names, e-mail addresses, IP addresses, type of client computer, files downloaded, search engine used, operating system, and type of Web browser of visitors to our site and persons responding to polls, and (4) aggregate and visitor-specific information regarding which pages visitors access. For example:
In order to submit content or participate in the community forums on glitchytasty.com, sign up for and/or use Glitchy Tasty services, such as online games, a visitor may be asked to first complete a registration form. During registration a visitor may be required to give their contact information (such as name and email address).
Information Collected Via Log Files And Cookies
While a visitor is on glitchytasty.com, Glitchy Tasty automatically tracks certain information through log files and, on some pages, through cookies (a cookie is a piece of data stored on the visitor's hard drive containing information about the visitor) or Web bugs (a Web “bug” is a file object, which can be a graphic image such as a transparent one pixel-by-one pixel graphics file, which is placed on a Web page or in an e-mail message to monitor user activity). This information may include data regarding a visitor’s most recent visit, the URL they came from, the URL they visit next, the browser they are using, and their IP address. Glitchy Tasty evaluates this data on an aggregate basis and will never associate the information with a visitor’s personal identity.
Surveys, Polls, & Contests
From time-to-time our site requests information from visitors via surveys, polls, contests, sweepstakes, or other promotions, either sponsored by Glitchy Tasty or one of its business partners. Participation in these surveys, contests, or polls is completely voluntary and the visitor therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose any information (although, for example, mailing address and demographic information may be required to enter contests). Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level).
If a visitor elects to use a referral service for informing a friend about our Sites, Glitchy Tasty asks them for the friend's name and email address.
Use of Information
Personal data collected by Glitchy Tasty may be used by Glitchy Tasty for many reasons, for example, for editorial and feedback purposes, for marketing and promotional purposes, such as to deliver advertisements and promotions targeted to our visitor’s interests, for a statistical analysis of visitors’ behavior, for product development, for content improvement, to deliver promotional information from Glitchy Tasty or its sponsors provided the visitor opted in for these notifications, to contact a visitor, or to customize the content and layout of our site. Aggregate visitor data may be used for internal purposes, and individually identifying information, such as names, postal and e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and other personal information which visitors voluntarily provide to Glitchy Tasty may be added to Glitchy Tasty’s databases. Aggregate visitor data may be provided to marketing firms and other organizations that provide marketing and/or marketing support services to Glitchy Tasty.
In addition, registration information may be used to contact the visitor about the services on our Sites for which they have expressed interest. For example, contest information may be used to notify the winners and award prizes and as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Statement. Survey and poll information may be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of our site, and as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Statement. Tell-A-Friend information may be used by Glitchy Tasty to send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit glitchytasty.com (Glitchy Tasty stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email). Information collected via cookies or Web bugs may be used to analyze trends, administer our site, track visitor\'s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

Identifiable or non-identifiable data may be disclosed or distributed (1) to another party with which Glitchy Tasty enters or reasonably may enter into a corporate transaction, such as, for example, a merger, consolidation, acquisition, or asset purchase, (2) to a third party (a) pursuant to a subpoena, court order, or other form of legal process, (b) in response to a request by or on behalf of any local, state, federal, or other government agency, department, or body, whether or not pursuant to a subpoena, court order, or other form of legal process, or (c) if determined by Glitchy Tasty in its sole judgment that such disclosure or distribution is appropriate to protect the life, health, rights, or property of Glitchy Tasty or any other person or entity, or (3) as necessary to third parties under contract with Glitchy Tasty to improve and provide services associated with glitchytasty.com. In situations involving bankruptcy or insolvency, the database containing personal data may be treated as an asset of Glitchy Tasty. Identifiable and non-identifiable visitor information and data which visitors provide to Glitchy Tasty also may be provided to third parties that provide products, information, or services which Glitchy Tasty believes that visitors may be interested in directly or indirectly purchasing or obtaining.
While Glitchy Tasty may undertake efforts to see that any third party to or with which Glitchy Tasty shares, rents, sells, or otherwise discloses personal data is under a contractual obligation to use the personal data solely for the purposes for which the data was disclosed, Glitchy Tasty is not responsible for their conduct, actions, omissions, or information handling or dissemination practices and Glitchy Tasty will not be liable therefore.
Except as necessary for Glitchy Tasty to provide the services, information, or products requested by a visitor, the visitor may opt out of having his or her personally identifiable information, which has been voluntarily provided to Glitchy Tasty through an online form, registration form, forum, survey, contest, poll, the “Contact Us” section of the site, or other similar mechanism, prospectively retained by Glitchy Tasty, used by Glitchy Tasty for secondary purposes, or disclosed by Glitchy Tasty to third parties by updating your information at the member information page or contacting Glitchy Tasty via postal mail, e-mail, facsimile, or telephone at the address or numbers set out above. Once Glitchy Tasty has implemented the visitor’s request, Glitchy Tasty will prospectively cease retaining, using for secondary purposes, or disclosing to third parties the personally identifiable information identified by the visitor in his or her request, to the extent directed in the request, except as required by law. (This does not apply to collection of the type of Web browser of the visitor to the site or to information provided or collected that does not meet the above description.)
