SafeWorlds and AltME Privacy Statement

We respect your privacy, and we are committed to protecting it.
Don't go for anything less.

No Spyware, No Adware... Ever.

We believe that spyware is evil. It is a violation of your privacy, and it's just plain wrong. None of our products include any kind of spyware or adware whatsoever. We do not make, sell, install, or participate in any kind of spyware or adware within our products or website.

We Guard Personal Information

Any personal information collected by us is used only by us. Personal information is data associated with your name or personal identity, such as your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, user IDs, billing addresses, and credit card information. We do not sell, rent, lease, or otherwise release your personal information to others. We keep it all private.

Our privacy policy applies to the sites, systems, and worlds operated by SafeWorlds, Inc. It does not apply to third party sites or systems that we may link to from our web page, as they are beyond our control. We make no representations about such third parties, and you should check their privacy policies separately.

Non-Personal Information

Non-personal information is data that is not associated with a specific personal identity., like most websites, automatically collects non-personal information about how visitors access and use our website. We collect such data as the pages that are visited, URLs, browser type, and IP addresses.

SafeWorlds, Inc. does not use cookies on its website or any of its web or systems operations.

Children's Privacy

SafeWorlds is committed to protecting the privacy needs of children. In fact, that is one of the primary reasons we invented AltME -- to give children a safe, secure place to communicate, free from unsolicited outside sources.

We strongly encourage parents and guardians to always take an active role in their children's online activities and interests. SafeWorlds does not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13 and we do not target our websites to children under 13.

AltME Product and World Privacy

Worlds created by AltME are private and operate under your control. Only you and the people you invite to join your world have access to the information within your AltME worlds.

SafeWorlds, Inc. does not have access to the information transferred or stored within your worlds. User information, passwords, groups, messages, checklists, and other data are shared only with people who use your world. This information is not shared with us, and it is not accessible by us.

The information we know about your world is external information that is used for directing users to your world. It includes: your world name, the world type (personal or professional), the world's IP address(es) and Internet port number required to route users to your world, a hash of the world control password that you need to maintain control over your world name, the product name and version number for your world server, the product and version numbers of clients that connect to your world, the IP addresses and unique identifiers of clients that connect to your world.

Authentication and Encryption

AltME products employ methods of authentication and encryption to help keep your world safe and to keep information secure as it is transferred over the Internet. Our standard AltME products use moderate levels of authentication and encryption, but we cannot guarantee that the methods employed are fully secure in all cases and are free from all types of attacks. It is possible that given enough resources, information transferred using AltME can be decoded.

Note that the standard AltME only encrypts data when transferred over the Internet. Data stored on standard AltME servers and clients is not encrypted. (However, we do plan to offer that feature as part of a future product.)

Changes to this Statement

Any updates to this Privacy Statement will be posted to this document so that you will always know what information we collect and how we use it.

If you have comments or questions about our privacy policy, please send them to us.
