Some profiles use a pseudonym, here referred to as a “nickname”.
Some of our features include virtual (pretend) worlds, where you can play games, talk with your friends
or get items, such as gems, pretend money
additional costumes or powers, for an “in-game” character that you control. For these Online Services you need to create a character and then choose a “nickname” or “handle” for that character. This is a unique, made-up name used to tell your character apart from other users’ characters and to save your game progress, without you having to share your real name or any other information with us or strangers. Other people will be able to see your nickname, when you are using the feature. We will always tell you if a nickname is needed to use a particular feature.
To help protect your privacy and safety online, we recommend that your nickname does NOT include your real name, your year of birth, your age or any part of your address. Lots of people like to use a pretend name, a name of a famous character or a pet’s name.
