The list of these offenses goes on and on! If you don't mind a company knowing and selling everything about you, then accept this agreement and create an account. As for me and the other concerned people on Steam: NO WAY!
(which is displayed only after you enter all your private information), but out of curiosity, I jumped back into the game to see if it saved my e-mail, username, password, etc. and IT DID!
There is something wrong with this companies data usage if they can't even differentiate between data they collected/stored erroneously (which should have been destroyed when one of the parties did not agree to the contract), and those persons of whom they actively store, sell, and track details.
June 6, 2014 - I'm still on this company's e-mail list!?! I just received an e-mail update announcing 4.0...Why are they still using my e-mail?!?
June 7, 2014 - Yet another e-mail sent to me about this game coming to the PS4. I wish someone had warned me about this company's spam and advertising policy before all of this.
June 20, 2014 - Another e-mail about their Summer Sale stuff. Please stop!FINAL UPDATE
The only few items related are pixel tagging for account security (to prevent theft of your account authorization). You will not see any RAM monitoring/capturing, monitoring web browsing activity, or sharing of your personal information with third parties
