Web server logs: When you visit TG Squared Studios Web sites, TG Squared Studios may track information to administer the site and analyze its usage in order to improve TG Squared Studios web site and better serve its customers.. However, TG Squared Studios does not correlate this information with data about individual users. Examples of information TG Squared Studios may track include:

• the number of links you click within the site
• the state or country from which you accessed the site
• the date and time of your visit

If you purchase a product, we will request financial information (E.g., your name and credit card number). Any financial information we collect is used only to bill you for the products and services you purchased. If you purchase by credit card, this information may be forwarded to your credit card provider.
For other types of registrations, we will ask for your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number. We may then contact you with information about other TG Squared Studios products and services.
Finally, you may be asked to disclose personal information to us so that we can provide assistance and information to you. For example, we may collect personal information from you (such as an e-mail address, system information and problem descriptions) in order to provide online technical support and troubleshooting.
We give users options wherever necessary and practical. Such choices include:
• Opting not to register to receive our electronic newsletters.

How We Protect Your Information. MBI uses technical security measures to prevent the loss, misuse and alteration of information under our control. For example, when we ask customers to provide financial information (such as a credit card number) that data is protected using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology.
