Overwolf's Privacy Policy

DISCLAIMER: This privacy policy was written by a lawyer. This makes it only partly readable for normal human beings. So … before you start sweating, we would like you to know we do not collect, sell or rent your personal information without your explicit permission.

This privacy policy explains how Overwolf uses the data of its users. If not specifically defined herein, capitalized terms have the meaning given to them in the Overwolf Terms of Use, which is available at Terms of Use.

Overwolf respects your right to privacy. Your ability to make informed choices about the uses of your information is important to us. This privacy statement explains Overwolf’s policy regarding the collection, use, disclosure and protection of Personal Information. The terms of this privacy statement apply to information collected from you unless different terms are specified as part of a special offer or in another form or contract we provide you.

Personal information

To make your Overwolf experience more personal, you may choose to (but you don’t have to!) provide us some personal information (like your email address, for example). "Personal Information" is information that can be directly associated with a specific person or entity such as a customer’s name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number, or information about activities directly linked to that person, such as his or her purchases. We collect Personal Information that you provide to us, such as when you register for Overwolf or other services via Overwolf, post information in a blog or forum, or contact us for any reason. We also collect information received from third parties to the extent that they have entered into an agreement with you as a result of your relationship with Overwolf.

If you choose to provide Personal Information (such as your name or email address) to us, we will not share this information with third parties or other Overwolf users without your explicit permission (Yes, you must approve this! If you don’t, we will not share this information), except when required by law, regulation, subpoena or court order (don’t break the law and you should be just fine). We may use Personal Information internally – for example, to help diagnose problems with our servers, to make Overwolf more useful and to customize Overwolf and personalize its content for you.

Statistical information

"Statistical Information" is anonymous information we collect in order to understand our users better, and to improve our products. (As an example, "Statistical Information" includes how many users use Overwolf’s browser comparing to the Facebook widget). By analyzing usage we may compile certain statistical information, such as anonymous information about how users use our service and which games they play. In addition, when you use Overwolf certain statistical information may be gathered about your usage of Overwolf and used for diagnostic purposes and improving Overwolf. This information may include, for example, your device's platform (e.g., Windows 7, Windows XP, etc.); and the version of Overwolf that you are using. In addition, Overwolf records certain information it automatically receives, such as the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, language preference, referring site, pages viewed and the order of those pages. Statistical data helps understand trends and customer needs so that new products and services can be considered and so existing products and services can be tailored to customer desires. Aggregate statistical information is anonymous and will not be linked to any Personal Information for provision to third parties. We may share such anonymous statistical information with our partners, without restriction, on commercial terms that we can determine in our sole discretion.

Communities

If you use any blogs or forums on Overwolf, please remember that any information disclosed in these venues may be automatically made public, and such information will not be considered Personal Information by Overwolf. You should exercise caution when disclosing any information (including Personal Information) in such venues, as you do not know who will access or use such information and for what purposes.

You and third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to report how your ad impressions, other uses of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services are related to visits to your site.

Online Links to Other Sites

Overwolf and Overwolf members or users can link to other websites of third-parties that provide useful information/service, or who have agreed to offer goods and services to Overwolf members (For example YouTube, Twitter, Google etc.).
