COLLECTION OF INFORMATION
The information we learn from customers allows us to personalize and continually improve the total experience at GamerSaloon.com. Here are the types of information we gather.
User Supplied Information.
We receive and store any information you enter on our Site or give us in any other way. Information that we collect can be: Account details, name and address, e-mail address and any information you submit and accompanying information, supplied PayPal information, and financial information, including Social Security numbers and Driver's License numbers (as necessary). This list is not exclusive, and may be altered without notice based on information that you supply voluntarily.
Right to refrain from giving information.
You have right to refrain from giving us certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of all of our features. We use the information that you provide for to enhance the service, such as responding to your requests. However, you may not mask your identity by providing false or misleading information. For example, you may not use IP masking to mask your Internet access location, including without limitation, proxy servers, masking software or the like.
GamerSaloon.com collects personal information when you register with GamerSaloon.com, when you use GamerSaloon.com products or services, when you visit GamerSaloon.com pages, and when you enter promotions or sweepstakes. GamerSaloon.com may combine information about you that we have with information we obtain from business partners or other companies.
When you register we ask for information such as your full legal name, e-mail address, birth date, gender, zip code, occupation, industry, and personal interests. For some financial products and services, and as necessary, we may also ask for your Social Security number, driver's license number and information about your assets. Once you register with GamerSaloon.com and sign in to our services, you are not anonymous to us.
IP Address and Cookies.
GamerSaloon.com automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, GamerSaloon.com cookie information, and the page you request.
A number of companies offer utilities designed to help you visit websites anonymously. Although we will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience at GamerSaloon.com if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist.
We communicate and make special offers available via email. To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from GamerSaloon.com if your computer supports such capabilities. We often receive email lists from other companies who offer similar services to ours. To avoid sending duplicate emails to our customers, we compare our customer list to these lists received from other companies. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust your e-mail contact preferences. Without exception, notifications relating to active Skill Challenges cannot be avoided and must be sent to Your supplied email address.

From time to time, we receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information.

SHARING OF INFORMATION
The information that we collect about our customers is critical to our business. We respect and value this information, and do not want to jeopardize the flow of information between our users and the Site. Therefore, we are not in the business of selling this information to other websites or businesses. There are very limited circumstances where we do share some customer information, and this is outlined immediately below. We share customer information only as described below and with subsidiaries GamerSaloon.com, Inc. controls that either are subject to this Privacy Notice or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Notice.
Due to the size and complexity of our operation, it is necessary to employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Agents are often used to assist with verifications, fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. These agents have access to only the personal information needed to perform their functions, and may not use it for other purposes.
Occasionally we send offers to selected groups of GamerSaloon.com customers on behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we do not give that business your name and address. If you do not want to receive such offers, please log into your account and adjust your contact preferences. To take full advantage of the site and the tremendous savings offered, we recommend that you choose to receive these offers.
To improve the offerings and selection at our website, we occasionally acquire as we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores, subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that Beyond Gaming LLC, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
