Privacy and Cookie Policy
Pinoypub Games and Apps
Effective Date: March 01, 2020

Evergreen Multimedia Inc (“Pinoypub” or “we”) is dedicated to protecting the privacy rights of our online 

users (“users” or “you”). This Online Privacy and Cookie Policy (the “Policy”) has been crafted to inform you 

as to the ways we collect, store, use, and manage the information you provide in connection with any 

Pinoypub website (collectively, the “Site”), or any Pinoypub game or application (the Site, games and 

applications are, collectively, the “Service”). Please note that the scope of this Policy is limited only to 

information collected by Pinoypub through use of the Service. This Policy does not apply to the practices of 

third parties that Pinoypub does not own or control.

When signing up for the Service, you are invited to agree with this Policy and the processing of your data, 

including your personal information, also called personal data in some jurisdictions (we refer to this 

information/data collectively as “personal information” throughout this Policy), in the manner provided in this 

Policy and our Terms of Use. We therefore process your personal information based on your consent. In any 

event, any use of the Service will be construed as your agreement with this Policy and our Terms of Use. If 

you do not agree to these terms, please do not use the Service.

It is advised that you review this Policy regularly as it may be amended from time to time as set out below 

(see the Changes to this Policy section below).

Information collection
We collect information about you directly from you, from third parties, and automatically through your use 

of our Service. We may combine the information that we collect about you from these various sources.

Information we collect directly from you

We will also collect any information that you provide to us through your use of our Service. The types of 

personal information we collect may vary depending on your activity. Personal information may include:

Your name;
User identification number;
Email address.
When you pay for products offered for purchase though the Service, we will also collect your billing address 

and complete credit card information that enables us to receive your payment. Our payment processing 

service provider may also retain this information to enable you to purchase additional items through our 

Service without having to re-enter it each time. We do not directly access or store your credit card 

information and we will not use your payment information we collect except as needed to fulfill your 

purchase and/or communicate with you regarding your transaction.

If you contact us via email (e.g., to contact customer support), we will collect your name and email 

address, as well as any other content included in the email, in order to send you a reply. We may use your 

personal information submitted in your communications to contact and respond to you.

Additionally, we may acquire information from you through your access and participation in message boards 

on the Service. This information may include posts, comments, photos or screenshots, videos, ratings, and 

in-game messages. If you post content to our Service, such information may be available to other users of 

our Service (e.g., in-game messages will be available to the recipient of your message and if you upload a 

profile picture, your image may be available to all other users of our Service). If you post your own content 

on our Service, your posting may become public and Pinoypub cannot prevent such information from being 

used in a manner that may violate this Policy, our Terms of Use, the law, or your personal privacy.

Information we collect about you from third parties

When you install any of the Service, we may collect and record the information you provide us voluntarily 

through a social networking website in accordance with their policies and terms.

If you log into our Service using Facebook, you must enter your Facebook email address and password. We 

will ask that you grant us permission to access and collect your Facebook basic information (this includes 

your name, profile picture, gender, networks, user IDs, list of friends, date of birth, email address, and any 

other information you have set to public on your Facebook account).  If you allow us to have access to 

this information, then we will have access to this information even if you have chosen not to make that 

information public.

If you log into our Service using Google, you must enter your Google email address and password.  By 

logging in through Google, you are granting us access to your Google profile information, which may include 

your name, location, email, birthday, and any demographic data.

Information we collect automatically about your use of our Service

When you use the Service, we may record information regarding the use of the Service, and we may collect 

other information that is visible on your social network page in accordance with the relevant terms of use 

associated with that page.

The Service will also record game play information such as your high scores or game session duration. When 

you invite new members into your network on the Service or send messages through the Service, we 

collect and maintain the information associated with those messages, including email address and content.

If you use the Service on your mobile telephone or other mobile device, including iPads and tablets, we 

collect mobile device identifiers, including Media Access Control (MAC) address, and possibly 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, general location 

(based on your Internet Protocol ("IP") address) or e-mail address. This information is useful to us for 

troubleshooting and helps us understand usage trends.

Except as described in this Policy, we will not share this information with any third party. If you no longer 

wish to allow us to track or use this information, you may turn it off at the device level. Please note, the 

application may not work properly if we are unable to tell where you are coming from (country specific).

In addition, we create a unique user ID to track your use of our Service. This unique user ID is stored in 

connection with your account information to track the Pinoypub games you are playing.

Please see the Cookies section below for more information about the information we automatically collect 

about you.

Public Information

Some of the information you give us when you register to play our games is open to the public, such as 

your profile picture, number of friends, your username, the list of games that you play and the date of 

registration. Should you wish to hide any of the information that is made public, you can do so by changing 

the settings to "only me" in the privacy settings tab of your profile.

Information use
We need the above personal information for the purposes as described in this Policy, and not providing this 

information will have an impact on our ability to provide you with the Service. Pinoypub’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. This includes sending you electronic communications related to the Service, from 

which you can unsubscribe at any time using the instructions in such communications. In addition, we may 

use user information for the following purposes:

your account and use of the Service, including to send Service and product updates; to respond to your

proceeding; to respond to a subpoena, warrant, court order, or other legal process; or as part of an

Like many services, Pinoypub uses server log files and automated data collection tools, such as cookies and 

web beacons (collectively, “Data Collection Tools”) when you access or use our Service. We tie the 

information gathered by these means to our customers’ personal information. These Data Collection Tools 

automatically track and collect certain technical information that your computer or device, such as your IP 

addresses, browser types, browser language, referring and exit pages, URLs, platform type, the number of 

clicks, domain names, landing pages, clickstream data, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the 

amount of time spent on particular pages, game information and the date and time of activity on our 

Service, and other similar information. In some cases, we will associate this technical information with your 

ID number for our internal use. By using our Service, you consent to our use of cookies, web beacons and 

Data Collection Tools.

We use cookies for a variety of reasons, including to: (i) analyze the usage of our Service; (ii) provide a 

more personalized experience; (iii) manage advertising; (iv) allow you to more easily login to our Service; 

(v) help make your use of our Service more efficient and more valuable by providing you with a customized 

experience and recognizing you when you return.

We may also employ web beacons or other technology for a variety of reasons such as: (i) allowing us to 

know if a certain page was visited or whether an email was opened; and (ii) tracking pixels, which allow us 

to advertise more efficiently by excluding our current users from certain promotional messages or identifying 

the source of a new installation.

You can set your web browser to warn you about attempts to place cookies on your computer, limit the 

type of cookies you allow or refuse cookies all together. We invite you to visit the support websites of the 

various browsers you may use to learn on how to block the use of Data Collection Tools. However, you may 

not be able to use some or all of the features of the Service if you refuse/disable cookies.

Our Service does not respond to Do Not Track signals. For more information about Do Not Track signals, 

please click here. You also may opt out of interest-based advertising by following the instructions in the 

"Your rights and choices in relation to your personal information" section below.

Third party services
Please note that third party partners/providers, such as analytics companies or companies delivering 

advertisements in our games or on the Service, may also use cookies or other technologies, and those 

practices and providers are subject to their own policies.

We use mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our mobile software 

on your device. This software may record information such as how often you use the application, the 

events that occur within the application, aggregated usage, performance data, and where the application 

was downloaded from. We do not link the information we store within the analytics software to any 

personal information you submit within the mobile application.

Our Service may contain third party tracking tools from our service providers. Such third parties may use 

cookies, APIs, and SDKs in our services to enable them to collect and analyze user information on our 

behalf. The third parties may have access to information such as your device identifier, MAC address, geo-

location information, and IP address for the purpose of providing their services under their respective 

privacy policies. This Policy does not cover the use of tracking tools from third parties. We do not have 

access or control over these third parties. The following are examples of the third parties that we use for 


Google Analytics

Pinoypub uses a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about use of this Service. Google 

Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this Site, what pages they visit when they do 

so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this Site. Pinoypub uses the information it gets from 

Google Analytics to understand Service usage and patterns and to improve its Service. Google Analytics 

collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit a Service, rather than your name or 

other identifying information. Pinoypub does not combine the information collected through the use of 

Google Analytics with personal information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your 

web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit a Service, the cookie cannot be used 

by anyone but Google.

Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to our Service 

is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use (as amended for government websites) and the Google 

Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this Site by 

disabling cookies on your browser or mobile device. For more information about Google Analytics, please see 

the Google Privacy Policy. To prevent Google Analytics from using your data through a web browser, you 

can get the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.

Sharing of information with third parties
Except as set forth in this Policy, Pinoypub does not share your personal information with any third parties. 

In the event we offer services or promotions where your information is separately collected and used 

according to the privacy policy of a third party, we will inform you of that at the time of collection and you 

may elect not to participate in the service or promotion.

We will share your information with other Pinoypub users as necessary to provide our Services. For example, 

if you post a profile picture, that picture may be available to all other users of our Services.

We also may share your information with third parties as required by legal or regulatory obligations; as 

requested by law enforcement or other government officials in connection with an investigation of fraud, 

intellectual property infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose you or us to legal liability; 

or as Pinoypub otherwise deems necessary to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, 

technical issues, or other threats to Pinoypub or others.

We may share your information with third party companies that perform services on our behalf, including 

payment processing, order fulfillment, data analysis, marketing services, email campaigns, hosting services, 

and customer service. While providing the services for us, these companies may access your personal 

information, and are required to use it solely as directed by us for the purpose of our requested service.

In conjunction with the running of our games we may partner with a third party to assist us in providing you 

with our Service. We will share the information you provide us through your social network, such as (1) 

your first and last name; (2) your profile picture or its URL; (3) your user identification number of the 

pertinent social network, which is linked to publicly available information such as name and profile picture; 

(4) the login email you provide to the pertinent social network upon registration; and (5) game play 

information with these third parties so they may facilitate the use of our Service as well as contact you 

about other games which may be of interest to you, service notifications and to solicit your feedback and 

input. If you do not wish to have this information shared please do not use our Service. If you wish to no 

longer have your personal information used by our partners you may contact us at 

and we will facilitate your request to the partner.

We may disclose your information to another entity in connection with, including during negotiations of, an 

acquisition or merger, sale or transfer of a business unit or assets, bankruptcy proceeding, or as part of any 

other similar business transfer.

We may use and share with third party advertisers (and other third parties) certain technical information 

and other non-personal information to show general demographic and preference information among 

Pinoypub users. We may also allow advertisers to collect technical information and other non-personal 

information, which they may share with us, through the use of tracking technologies like 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 increasing the likelihood 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). Please see the your rights and 

choices in relation to your personal information section below for more information about opting out of 

behavioral advertising.

Information about our users is an integral part of our business. We share your personal information only as 

described in this Policy.

States and is accessible to our offices in the Philippines. You expressly agree with your personal information 

being stored and processed in the Philippines.

Data retention
We will keep you information for as reasonably necessary for the purposes set out above, though generally 

no longer than 3 years.

We may keep your personal data for longer if required by applicable laws.

Protecting personal information
We strive to protect personal information while it is under our control. If you have an account with us, your 

account information is accessible online only through the use of a password. To help protect the

other person. You acknowledge that you provide your personal information at your own risk. You are also 

responsible for all uses of the Pinoypub games and applications by any person using your password. Please 

advise us immediately if you believe your password has been compromised or misused.

We have implemented commercially reasonable technical, physical, managerial and organizational measures 

designed to secure your personal 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 

defeat those measures or use, disclose, or alter your personal information for improper purposes. Also 

please note that email and messaging systems are not considered secure, so we discourage you from 

sending us personal information through these mediums.

In the event that personal information has been or is compromised as a result of a breach of security, 

Pinoypub will promptly notify those persons whose personal information has been compromised, in 

accordance with the notification procedures set forth in this Policy, or as otherwise required by applicable 


To protect your privacy and security, we may take reasonable measures (such as requiring a unique 

password) to verify your identity before permitting you access to your account or the Service. You are 

responsible to maintain the secrecy of your unique password and account information, and for controlling 

access to your email communication or interaction through the Site or Pinoypub's authorized social 

networking at all times.

information we hold in relation to you and you can correct any inaccurate data we hold.

Furthermore, you can change or delete any personal information by changing the applicable information

Opting out from one or more companies listed on the DAA Consumer Choice Page, the NAI Consumer Opt-

interest-based content or ads to you, but it does not mean you will no longer receive any advertising 

through our Site or App or on other websites. You may continue to receive advertisements, for example, 

based on the particular website that you are viewing (i.e., contextually based ads). If your browser is 

configured to reject cookies when you opt out on the DAA, NAI, and/or EDAA websites, your opt out may 

not be effective. Please note that if you use multiple devices you will have to opt out on each individual
