Information We Collect
Information We Collect from You Directly
When you interact with the Service, at www.bossatron.com, or any Uber Boss-owned website, We may collect and store information from you directly as described below:
We may allow you to "register" with Us to create an account or profile within the Service. We may also provide a more typical registration flow where you may be required to provide the following information: a username; your e-mail address; a password and other information that helps Us confirm that it is you accessing your account.
We may also offer you the option to complete a user profile that is visible to other Uber Boss users. Your user profile may include: a profile photo; one or more game username(s); biographic details that you provide; links to your profiles on various social networking services; details about the games you play; and a Uber Boss user ID number that is created by Uber Boss and used to identify your profile.
Information We Receive or Collect When You Access Uber Boss Games on a Mobile Device
If you play Uber Boss games on your mobile telephone or other mobile device, including iPads and tablets, We collect mobile device identifiers, including MAC Address, and IP Address. In certain games We will create and assign to your device an identifier that is similar to an account number. We may collect the name you have associated with your device, device type, telephone number, country, and any other information you choose to provide, such as user name, character name, geo-location or e-mail address. If you choose to link through a social network service, we may also access your contacts to enable you to invite friends to join you in the Service.
If you purchase a license to use in-game virtual currency or virtual items directly from Uber Boss, We will collect the billing and financial information necessary for Us or a third party to process your charges, which may include your postal and e-mail addresses. Uber Boss may also receive the billing and payment information that you provide when your purchase is processed by another party, such as Apple (for purchases on iOS devices) or Google (on Android devices). Our Terms of Service explain our policies and terms relevant to our charges and billing practices. Please note that purchases of third party credits or currencies may also be subject to additional policies.
Customer Support Correspondence
When you ask for assistance from our Customer Support team, We will collect and store the contact information you provide (generally your name and e-mail address), information about your game play or activity on the Service, and your user ID number. We will also store the correspondence and any information contained within.
SMS Notifications, Push Notifications & Local Notifications
We receive and store the information you provide when you sign up to have SMS notifications sent directly to your mobile phone. These messages notify you of in-game activity and may allow you to play the game from your phone. You can adjust the types of notifications you receive and when you receive them by editing your SMS notification settings; just log in to your game account and choose SMS mobile from the Help menu.
With your consent We may send push notifications to your mobile device to provide game updates and other relevant messages. You can manage push notifications from the "options" or "settings" page on your mobile device's settings page for the relevant game.
We may send local notifications to your mobile device to provide game updates and other relevant information. You can manage local notifications from the "options" or "settings" page within the relevant game.
Technical and Usage Information
When you access our websites or play our games, We collect (i) certain technical information about your mobile device or computer system, including MAC Address, IP Address and mobile device ID; and (ii) usage statistics about your interactions with the Service. This information is typically collected through the use of server log files or web log files ("Log Files"), mobile device software development kits and tracking technologies like browser cookies to collect and analyze certain types of technical information. Some of the cookies the Service places on your computer are linked to your user ID number(s). For more information on how We utilize cookies and other tracking technologies please review the "Cookies and Automated Information Collection" portion of Section 3 ("How We Collect Information about You").
How We Collect Information about You
We may collect information about you in any one or more of the following ways:
Information about Players and Play
When you play one of our games, Uber Boss collects and stores certain information that you provide directly or through the SNS or other third party website that is offering our game(s). To provide a richer game play and social experience, We also collect information about your play and interaction with other players and the Service. The bulk of this information is collected and stored through the use of Log Files, which are files on our web servers that record actions taken on our games and websites.
You may be able to take part in certain activities on our websites or games that give you the opportunity to communicate or share information not just with Uber Boss, but also with other users of our Service. These include:
- participating in player forums and message boards
- posting public comments to other users' profiles or gameboards
- sending private messages or invitations to other users, either directly on our websites or to their e-mail accounts
- chat with other users
- posting photos
We may record and store archives of these communications on Uber Boss's servers to protect the safety and wellbeing of our users and Uber Boss's rights and property in connection with the Service. You acknowledge and consent to the recording and storage of such communications for these purposes.
Cookies and Automated Information Collection
When you access the Service, We collect certain technical information in order to (i) analyze the usage of our sites and services; (ii) provide a more personalized experience; and (iii) manage advertising. We and service providers acting on our behalf, such as Google Analytics, use Log Files and tracking technologies to collect and analyze certain types of technical information, including cookies, IP addresses, device type, device identifiers, browser types, browser language, referring and exit pages, and URLs, platform type, the number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, game state and the date and time of activity on our websites or games, and other similar information. In some cases, We will associate this information with your user ID number for our internal use.
We may also employ other technologies including (i) web beacons, which allow Us to know if a certain page was visited or whether an e-mail was opened; (ii) tracking pixels, which allow Us to advertise more efficiently by excluding our current users from certain promotional messages, identifying the source of a new installation or delivering ads to you on other websites; and (iii) local shared objects also known as flash cookies, which help Us to prevent fraud, remember your in-game preferences and speed up load times.
We may collect or receive information from other sources including (i) other Uber Boss users who choose to upload their email contacts; and (ii) third party information providers. This information will be used to supplement your profile - primarily to help you and your friends connect. It will be combined with other information We collect.
How We Use the Information We Collect
In general, We collect, store and use your information to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized experience. One important use of your information is communication. If you have provided your e-mail address to Uber Boss, We'll use it to respond to (i) customer support inquiries, and (ii) keep you informed of your in-game activity, including comments from friends, notifications about in-game status. Some messages, such as invites for friends to join you in a game, may include your name and profile photo. We may also send promotional e-mail messages and promotional SMS messages ("Promotional Communications") directly or in partnership with parties other than Uber Boss. Each Promotional Communication will generally offer recipients choices about receiving additional messages.
Sharing of Your Information
We will share your information (in some cases personal information) with third parties, that is parties other than Uber Boss, in the following circumstances:
Third Party Service Providers
We will provide your information to third party companies to perform services on our behalf, including payment processing, data analysis, e-mail delivery, hosting services, customer service and to assist Us in our marketing efforts. We direct all such third party service providers to maintain the confidentiality of the information disclosed to them and to not use your information for any purpose other than to provide services on Uber Boss's behalf.
Friends and Other Uber Boss Players
The Service supports and may encourage interaction among players. In some Uber Boss games your SNS friends will see your name, profile photo and descriptions of your game activity. In some Uber Boss games friends and other players will be able to see your game profile, which may include your name or a "game name" and your profile photo, which in certain cases can reveal your SNS User ID number or Uber Boss ID. Access to a Uber Boss ID or your SNS User ID may allow others to view the public information associated with your related SNS or Uber Boss account. Other players may also be able to send you game requests or even friend requests through the related SNS' communication channels.
Advertising of Third Party Products and Services
We do not actively share personal information with third party advertisers for their direct marketing purposes unless you give Us your consent.
We may share (i) aggregated information (information about you and other users collectively, but not specifically identifiable to you); (ii) anonymous information; and (iii) certain technical information (including IP Addresses, MAC Addresses for mobile devices and mobile device IDs) to develop and deliver targeted advertising in the Service and on the websites of third parties. We may also allow advertisers to collect these and similar types of information within the Service and they may share it with Us and/or use it for advertising. Advertisers may collect this information through the use of a variety of tracking technologies, including without limitation, like browser cookies and web beacons. The information collected may be used to offer you targeted ad-selection and delivery in order to personalize your user experience by ensuring that advertisements for products and services you see will appeal to you, a practice known as behavioral advertising, and to undertake web analytics (i.e. to analyze traffic and other end user activity to improve your experience). To learn more about behavioral advertising or to opt-out of this type of advertising for participating ad networks, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative or the Digital Advertising Alliance. In addition, for iOS devices running version 6 or higher, you may limit in-app advertising by adjusting the "Limit Ad Tracking" setting or resetting the "Advertising Identifier" at any time by visiting your device's "settings" page.
When using other operating systems, such as Android for Android devices and Windows for Microsoft you may review the support materials and/or the privacy settings for the respective operating systems in order to opt-out of tailored in-application advertisements. For any other devices and/or operating systems, please visit the privacy settings for the applicable device or contact the applicable platform operator.
Safety, Security and Compliance with Law
Your information, and the contents of all of your online communications (including without limitation chat text, voice communications, IP addresses and your personal information) may be accessed and monitored as necessary to provide the Service and may be disclosed: (i) when We have a good faith belief that We are required to disclose the information in response to legal process (for example, a court order, search warrant or subpoena); (ii) to satisfy any applicable laws or regulations (iii) where We believe that the Service is being used in the commission of a crime, including to report such criminal activity or to exchange information with other companies and organizations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction; (iv) when We have a good faith belief that there is an emergency that poses a threat to the health and/or safety of you, another person or the public generally; and (v) in order to protect the rights or property of Uber Boss, including to enforce our Terms of Service.
Sale or Merger
In the event that Uber Boss undergoes a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, We may transfer all of your information, including personal information, to the successor organization in such transition. If material changes to Uber Boss's privacy practices will occur as a result of the business transition, We will notify you and other users of the business transition prior to transferring your personal information.

Our websites and games are not intended for children under the age of 13 and We do not knowingly collect any personal information from such children. Children under the age of 13 should not use our websites or games at any time. In the event that We learn that We have inadvertently gathered personal information from children under the age of 13, We will take reasonable measures to promptly erase such information from our records.

Privacy Policies of Linked Sites and Advertisers
Our websites and games may contain advertisements from companies other than Uber Boss that may link to their own websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. If you have any questions about how these other websites use your information, you should review their policies and contact them directly.
Security of Your Information
Uber Boss implements reasonable security measures to protect the security of your information both online and offline, and We are committed to the protection of customer information.
For user accounts registered directly with Uber Boss profile information is protected by the password each member uses to access their online account. It is important that you protect and maintain the security of your account and that you immediately notify Us of any unauthorized use of your account. If you forget the password to your Uber Boss account, the website allows you to request that instructions be sent to you that explain how to reset your password. When you sign into your account or enter payment information (such as a credit card number when purchasing virtual currency), We encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology ("SSL").
While We take reasonable precautions against possible security breaches of our websites and our customer databases and records, no website or Internet transmission is completely secure, and We cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur. We urge you to take steps to keep your personal information safe (including your account password), and to log out of your account after use. If your SNS account is hacked, this may lead to unauthorized play of your Uber Boss games, so be careful to keep your account information secure.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information over the Internet is not completely secure. Although We strive to protect your personal data, We cannot guarantee the security of your data while it is being transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once We have received your information, We have procedures and security features in place to try to prevent unauthorized access.

Uber Boss does not track its customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such sites, your browser may allow you to set the DNT signal on your browser so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked.
Uber Boss offers interactive services which allow you to post content to share publicly. At any time you can delete or remove content you have posted using the deletion or removal options within our services. If you have questions about how to remove content in a specific service or if you would like additional assistance with deletion you can contact support. Although we offer deletion capability for our services, you should be aware that the removal of content may not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of that content or information posted through the services.
