PARENTS PLEASE READ: PROTECTING CHILDREN'S PRIVACY
Before allowing your children to use the Wii Network Service, we strongly recommend that you educate them on the importance of not sharing any personal information about themselves with strangers. In particular, we recommend that you tell your children to not use personal information for any nicknames on games, user names in chat rooms, names for Miis or any other applications that use the Wii Network Service.
We strongly recommend that you assist your children with the setup of the Wii Network Service, and that you supervise your children's use of the Wii Network Service at all times. If at any time you want to stop your children’s use of the Wii Network Service, you can simply disconnect the Wii Network Service.
Please read the following provisions carefully as they all apply to use of the Wii Network Service by you and any other person using your Wii console.
A. INFORMATION COLLECTED
Nintendo does not normally collect Personal Information. If personal information is collected it will be collected, held, used and transferred in accordance with the National Privacy Principles (NPPs) in the Privacy Act 1988. Nintendo will not collect Sensitive Information as defined in the Privacy Act.
We may anonymously monitor your use of the Wii Network Service, but the data so collected will be anonymous and will not identify you. We may receive and record anonymous information on our server logs from the Wii Network Service, including, but not limited to, your internet protocol ("IP") address, cookies, transactions, settings and download activity.
B. Wii CHANNELS
The Wii channels are a unique feature of the Wii Network Service. On certain Wii Channels you may have the opportunity to nickname your Miis, create a user id and interact with other gamers. We strongly encourage you not to use your own name for any Miis or any user IDs you may create or to share your personal information.
C. INFORMATION STORED ON YOUR Wii REMOTE AND Wii CONSOLE
Your Wii console may allow certain Personal Information to be stored on your Wii Remote so please note that by using your Wii Remote on a Wii console other than your own, it is possible that certain Personal Information about you could be shared with and stored on that other Wii console.
Your Wii console may store certain Personal Information as well. For your protection, before selling or otherwise transferring your Wii console, please be sure to clean and securely remove all Wii Shop Channel Account information, Wii Messages or other Personal Information, any pictures or messages on the message board, and all other stored information on the Wii Network Service, your Wii console, Wii Remote and/or Wii accessories. For instructions on formatting your Wii console and clearing your Wii Shop Channel Account activity, please review the Wii Operations Manual: Channels and Settings.
D. UPDATES AND UPGRADES
To ensure that your Wii console is operating properly and efficiently, we will from time to time automatically download updates, patches, upgrades and similar software to your Wii console.
