Personally Identifiable Information
“Personally Identifiable Information” is information that we can use to identify you as an individual. Personally identifiable information includes your name, address, telephone number and any other information that is connected with you personally.
DFG does not collect personally identifiable information from you unless you give it to us through an order form or other form that asks you for it.
Please note that personally identifiable information gathered by us or by our third-party service providers can be disclosed to judicial or other government agencies subject to warrant, subpoenas or other governmental orders as required by law.
Any personally identifiable information posted by you in our user reviews or other service such as a forum may be displayed publicly if you give us permission to do so.
DFG does not intentionally collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13.
In the case DFG merged or was acquired by another company, all applicable information we have collected would be owned by the new company and subject to their privacy policies. In the case of a bankruptcy, personally identifiable information would only be given to 3rd party companies as required by law.
To opt out of any information we have collected about you, please email us at email@example.com
DFG does not require registration to use any part of our site.
In order to receive email correspondence from us in the form of newsletters or game alerts or similar programs, we require a valid email address that is confirmed through double opt in. Double opt-in protects your email address from abuse and is described in the following steps:
- You enter your email address in our online form and submit it
- Your email is sent to a third part email hosting service (i.e. Aweber) and they send a confirmation request to your email address.
- You must then open the confirmation request email and click a link to confirm your desire to be a part of our newsletter, game alerts, or similar programs.
- If you do not click the link in the confirmation email, you will not be added to our service.
- Instructions for unsubscribing are found in every email and can be done quickly and automatically without fear of further email sent to you other than a confirmation of unsubscribing.
Alpha Internet Consulting LLC (parent company of Download Free Games) is the sole owner of the information collected via email signup on our site.

We allow users to voluntarily submit reviews of games on our site. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these reviews is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and email address), and demographic information (such as city, state, country).
We use this information to notify you if you have won a free game for submitting a review. We also post your name and where you live on our reviews if you have chosen to give us this information. We only use this information to promote the legitimacy of our reviews and not for any other purposes!
For each visitor to our Web page, our Web server automatically recognizes only the consumer’s domain name and IP address, but not the e-mail address (where possible). Email addresses are collected if visitors double opt-in to our Game Club services. Email addresses are then only used by Download Free Games and not sold, rented, given, or shown to any other company for any use whatsoever. Our use of double opt-in email addresses is to notify visitors of new games added to the site, send tips, or any information related to Download Free Games’ products.
A “cookie” is a small piece of information sent by a web server to store on a web browser so it can later be read back from that browser.

At this time, Download Free Games does not set any cookies itself. Cookies may also be used by our third party ad server company Google Adsense.
