World2Build works like this...
Users wishing to save statistics, share items, and otherwise participate in the economy are required to enter a username and password. We advise users to create a username that does not reflect their own name nor reveal personally identifiable information. We also advise users to pick a password that is not easy to guess, and to not share that password. For security reasons, we store passwords in encrypted form.
Usernames are used for participating in site features and are not used to identify individual users outside of their activities on our site. Usernames are not passed along to 3rd parties except in the case where a purchase is made to be credited to the account. In this case our purchasing vendor is given the account name in order to credit the account when the transaction is completed.
All users are asked for, but are not required to give, a valid email address on sign-up. This can be updated or changed at any time by going to your account settings.
All text on the site is filtered pro-actively to remove references to addresses, emails, phone numbers, age, and other personally identifiable information regardless of security and privacy settings. All text is also filtered for profanity, phishing, and adult or suggestive content. Our system is a combination of human and automated processes; like all filtering technology, our processes are not 100% effective.
Users wishing to purchase a premium membership or Cash are required to enter billing information, including name, billing address, credit card or PayPal number, and billing email. For children under 13, we request the parent's billing information. Billing information is retained to support customer service inquiries, but we do not retain the full credit card number. Remember NEVER to use a credit card without permission from the card holder.
World2Build uses a software technology called "cookies." Cookies are small text files that we place in our visitor's computer browsers to store their preferences. These cookies do not store personally identifiable information. For account security purposes, we may store a cookie that contains the encrypted user password; the original password cannot be recovered by hackers. Users who disable cookies in their browsers may not be able to login to the World2Build website or participate in website activities.
Additionally, when visitors come to our site, we automatically collect some non-personally identifiable computer information, such as the type of computer operating system (e.g., Windows 95 or Mac OS), the web browser (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer) being used, IP address, and information regarding the Internet service provider. This information is used to provide technical and community support.
We pass user billing information on to our transaction processing partners. This is done for non-anonymous payment types, including credit card, Pay by Phone, and PayPal payments. For recurring monthly transactions, PayPal retains the credit card authorization on file, but we do not.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site.
To the extent permitted by applicable law, we also may disclose personally identifiable information in response to a law enforcement agencies or other public agencies (including schools or children services) request or if we feel that such disclosure may prevent the instigation of a crime, facilitate an investigation related to public safety or protect the safety of a child using our website, protect the security or integrity of our website, or enable us to take precautions against liability.
We will not use or transfer personally identifiable information in ways that are materially different from the ones described above without also providing parental notification of such practices and obtaining consent for any materially different uses.
Parents have the right to consent to the site’s use of their child’s personal information without having to consent to the disclosure of that information to third parties as we do not share children’s information with third parties.
