Automatically Collected Information
EDGE OF WONDER does not automatically collect information about your computer hardware and software, such as: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses.
The EDGE OF WONDER website may use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize EDGE OF WONDER pages, or register with EDGE OF WONDER services, a cookie helps EDGE OF WONDER to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same EDGE OF WONDER website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the EDGE OF WONDER features that you customized.
Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer.
When you access the Applications, your personal information is not collected through the use of tracking technology. Most browsers are set to accept cookies by default. You can remove or reject cookies, but be aware that such action could affect the availability and functionality of the Applications.
Security of your information
We use administrative, technical, and physical security measures to help protect your personal information. While we have taken reasonable steps to secure the personal information you provide to us, please be aware that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse. Any information disclosed online is vulnerable to interception and misuse by unauthorized parties. Therefore, we cannot guarantee complete security if you provide personal information.
