Help Using madigames.com
To play the games simply visit our homepage at www.madigames.com
Should you experience any issues accessing the games, first check that you are using an up-to-date browser such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome which by default will automatically have the latest version of Adobe Flash Player installed. You will need to ENABLE Flash to play many of the older games on desktop / laptop computers.
Madigames.com will run best on newer computers and mobile devices, especially those with wide-screen, high resolution displays. Because of issues around differing technologies and input-devices, users may notice significant differences in content and experience between desktop / laptop computers and handheld mobile devices. You can at any time access our full games list of all of our games, but please be aware that many may not function properly on your device.
The internet provides some amazing experiences, but it is a largely unregulated environment, and this naturally presents some issues regarding user safety. Madigames.com is a general audience website, which appeals to users of both genders, all ages, and many nationalities. Some users (depending on age, internet experience, and other factors) may be more vulnerable than others. It is therefore important to highlight the features - and perhaps more importantly, the absence of features - which help make Madigames a safer place to play.
Madigames.com very rarely communicates directly with users, but much more importantly, Madigames does not facilitate communication between users. There are no forums or chat facilities on Madigames, and this is instrumental in preventing inappropriate contact and bullying.
The privacy of users is extremely important to us. Below you will find information detailing the types of data received and collected by Madigames.com and other parties, and how it is used.
Log Files: As with all websites, Madigames servers record details of which files are accessed along with data such as the time the request was made and the IP (Internet Protocol) address of the user. Although each computer may have a unique IP address, this identifier is never linked with any personal information such as the name or street address of the user. Log files have been used universally since the dawn of the internet and are invaluable in identifying errors with web pages and, in the case of Madigames.com, with the games. Our servers are set to keep daily log files for a maximum of one month, after which they are permanently deleted.
Cookies / Flash Shared Objects: To help provide an enhanced user experience, browsers allow websites to store small amounts of data on users' computers. This information is stored in the form of small text files called 'cookies' or, in the case of some of the games on Madigames, in 'Flash Shared Objects'. Examples of the information stored might include the number of games a user has played, the country the user is in (as taken from the user's IP address), and the progress made on a game. Unless a user specifically enters personal data, no data stored is personally identifiable. You can at any time delete the cookies your computer holds - just check your browser's privacy settings. You can manage your computer's use of Flash Shared Objects by right-clicking on any Flash game and selecting 'Global Settings...'and then 'Local Storage Settings by Site...'.
Tracking: Sometimes our menu system and the games on Madigames.com may send information to third-party tracking services. The information collected (while never personally identifiable) is useful, for example, in providing general insights into visitor numbers and which games are most popular.
Advertising Networks: Keeping a popular website up and running can be expensive, and so sometimes we show advertisements which help generate income. The ads are typically served by third party ad networks, and although we try hard to ensure that the companies advertising are reliable and honest, the reality of the internet is that our influence over the ever-changing offerings of these networks is limited. Ad networks will typically show ads based on the kind of users they expect to be playing on Madigames, and as described above, may store small amounts of data on a user's computer. This information, which is never personally identifiable, may help advertisers target an individual user based on their visit to Madigames and other sites and pages they have viewed in the past. Users are now given greater control than ever over how ad networks use this 'retargeting' data, and you may opt out of the cookie / retargeting functions of many of these networks if you so wish.
