All About Glu's Terms of Service
Back in 2001, when the mobile gaming developer Glu was founded, no one could have imagined the technological playground of society that would exist in just twenty years. Unfortunately, while the online world offers a wealth of educational and social experiences, it also provides many ways to collect and misuse your data. Because of this, there have been several state and federal laws passed in recent years providing protections to consumers and requiring companies to obtain consent from users for the collection and use of data.
Companies generally address the ways they can use your data in your terms of service or privacy agreement that you enter into when you subscribe to or visit their website. While Glu can be considered one of the pioneers in the mobile gaming world, they're held to the same terms of service requirements as other companies dealing with subscribers’ personal information. Have they violated your terms of service? DoNotPay can not only answer that question but can help you seek compensation if a violation occurs as well.
What Is Glu?
Glu is a developer and publisher of mobile games. Headquartered in San Francisco, the company also has locations in Foster City, Toronto, and Hyderabad. Some of the products in Glu's portfolio include:
- Covet Fashion
- Deer Hunter
- Design Home
- MLB Tap Sports Baseball
Glu's offerings are available worldwide on various platforms, including the App Store and Google Play.
Glu has written up a Terms of Service Agreement that serves as a contract between the company and users of its products.
Three Ways a Legal Terms of Service Violation Can Occur
To be certain, companies don't generally plan to violate their terms of service. Often, violations occur due to one of these three factors:
- The laws changed, and the company failed to update its terms of service or its practices to reflect these changes.
- Those managing the company's terms of service agreements were unaware of the law.
- The company used deliberately ambiguous language in its agreement to prevent users from completely understanding the provisions they agreed to.
How Do Companies Use the Data They Collect?
Companies have several reasons for collecting data from visitors to their website, including:
- Providing the user with a more interactive experience based on location data
- Tracking your visits to the website to offer advertisements that are targeted to your interests and previous searches
- Building the company's customer database to advertise to customers who are likely to be repeat buyers
- Understanding what type of advertisements work with their customer base to refine their marketing strategies.
How to Determine if Glu Has Violated Its Terms of Service
While it is usually rather noticeable when a user violates the terms of service, it is a bit more difficult to determine if a company is violating its TOS by how it is collecting and using your data. To do so, you would have to understand the federal and state data privacy laws and how they apply to the terms of service you agreed to when subscribing or registering an account with the site. Many of us don't have a legal degree or the time and patience required in such an activity. Luckily, DoNotPay can help you analyze Glu's terms of service in a matter of seconds.
What Happens If Glu Was Careless With Its Data?
Whether a company knows about law and how to properly apply it to their business practices or not, they are accountable for how they collect, store, and use the data they obtain from their users. If a company is careless with your data and it results in financial or other losses, you can seek compensation for those losses through a claim in small claims court.
