Information Collection, Storage and Use
 
We refer to information that identifies an individual as "Personal Information." In general, RKGamers.com collects Personal Information from users of the RKGamers.com Sites in connection with access to certain online areas or services, including during (i) registration for certain online community services and tools such as message boards, chat rooms or other community services; (ii) registration for special communications, such as email updates and newsletters; (iii) subscription registration; (iv) user surveys; (v) events, sweepstakes, contests or promotions; and (vi) registration for online multi- or single-player gaming, either through the RKGamers.com Sites, within a game publisher's site or through the game itself. Your Personal Information is stored on RKGamers.com computer servers (or those of its service providers) located in the United States.
We may gather navigational, click stream data that indicates the areas of the RKGamers.com Sites you visit or access. This navigational data does not identify you as an individual user (i.e., based on your PII). We may enter into agreements with outside companies that possess the technology that allows RKGamers.com to customize the advertising and marketing messages you receive on the RKGamers.com Sites. Your non-PII and click stream data about your activities on the RKGamers.com Sites may be shared with these companies so this customization can be accomplished. These companies have agreed not to share your information with any third party or use it for any other purpose. Anonymous click stream and demographic information may also be shared with RKGamers.com's advertisers and business partners. We also use and share navigational data in aggregate, non-personal form to understand how our users as a group use the RKGamers.com Sites.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information in public areas of an RKGamers.com Site, such as the member home pages and message boards, your information can be viewed and possibly used by others. We advise users to be especially careful in such public areas about disclosing Personal Information, such as full name, home address, or phone number.
Below are more details about the Personal Information we, or third parties may gather from you and how we may use it.
A. Membership Information. When you register for membership on an RKGamers.com Site, we will ask you for certain minimum required information, such as your name, birth date, gender, email address and zip code. We may also ask for additional information about you and your interests. We do this so we can better understand your preferences and tailor the RKGamers.com Sites to suit you better. The more information you volunteer, the more we can tailor the RKGamers.com Site and promotions to your interests. Additionally, third-party service providers may require you to assent to their privacy party as a condition to receiving their service.
  • Service Providers. We offer our members other services provided by third parties such as email, among others. When you register for membership on an RKGamers.com Site or activate a related service by clicking on a particular service link (i.e. email) on an RKGamers.com Site, you may be automatically registered to receive the services we offer and some of your Personal Information may be transferred from RKGamers.com to those third-party service providers. By becoming a member, you authorize us and our third-party service providers to send you email updates and information about promotions and special offers. We take care to require that our third-party service providers only use our member's data as necessary to provide the particular service and to give you updates on that service provider's products and services.
 
  • Game Owners/Publishers. We provide game owners/publishers with certain hosted technology and software that enables various game related functionalities, such as online multi- or single-player gaming. If you are not already a registered user of the RKGamers.com Sites you may be asked to provide Personal Information in connection with your use of such services. We share Personal Information with game owners/publishers that offer such services to enable those entities to operate the services you have elected to receive. Game owners/publishers may also use Personal Information for other business purposes, provided that such use shall be in compliance with the terms of this Policy, except that a game owner/publisher (a) will not contact you or otherwise use or transfer your Personal Information, unless you have expressly consented. Upon giving such consent your Personal Information will be subject to the game owner's/publisher's privacy policy.
We may contact you regarding account status, changes to this Policy, our User Agreement or other terms of use, to confirm your registration or for any other business reason related to your use of RKGamers.com Sites.
B. Promotions. We may ask you for Personal Information at other times, including, but not limited to, when you enter sweepstakes, contests or promotions sponsored by RKGamers.com or a third party. If you choose to enter sweepstakes, contests or promotions sponsored by a third party, the Personal Information you provide will be subject to the privacy policy of the third party sponsor. We encourage you to check the applicable third party policy before providing any Personal Information.
C. Use of Cookies. On the Internet, a "cookie" is a piece of information (a file) that a Web site transfers to a user's computer for record-keeping purposes. The use of cookies is common on the Internet. The process we use to serve advertisements and to track use of the RKGamers.com Sites involves cookies. We use cookies to recognize users who have already registered for a RKGamers.com Site, allowing those users to speed up their future activities on the RKGamers.com Sites. Cookies help RKGamers.com and our advertising service (discussed below) track the frequency and placement of advertisements. Cookies also enable us to measure aggregate (total) usage and traffic to the RKGamers.com Sites and to specific offerings. This aids us in producing content that best meets our users' preferences. In order to implement new services, we may use other types of cookies as well. We also may use cookies to understand better what parts of the RKGamers.com Sites you like best. We may use that information to display advertisements that we think will be of particular interest to you. You may configure your browser to reject cookies, but this may interfere with some functionality of the RKGamers.com Sites. To find out more about changing your browser to reject cookies, we suggest the EPIC Cookies Page http://www.epic.org/privacy/internet/cookies. Certain pages of the RKGamers.com Sites may contain electronic images (called a "single-pixel GIF" or "web beacon") that allow a web site to count users who have visited that page. RKGamers.com occasionally uses web beacons on the RKGamers.com Sites in order to count users and to recognize registered users by accessing the RKGamers.com cookies.
D. Purchase of Products or Services. When you purchase products or services from or through the RKGamers.com Sites we may require Personal Information such as name, address, telephone number and billing information, including credit card, debit card or bank account data. RKGamers.com will not disclose your Personal Information, including billing information, except to the extent necessary to complete your transaction, for example during an online purchase or where needed to deliver a product or service you ordered.
E. Sharing Non-Personal Information. RKGamers.com may share information that is not Personal Information -- meaning non-personal, aggregate, or summary, information regarding our users -- with other third parties not mentioned in this Policy. This kind of information does not identify you individually.
F. Legal Authorities. We may also disclose Personal Information in cases when we reasonably believe that it is necessary to identify someone who may be violating RKGamers.com policies or RKGamers.com Sites" User Agreements or other terms of use, or who may be a threat to RKGamers.com or third party rights, property, or personal safety. The RKGamers.com Sites may disclose Personal Information to comply with valid legal process such as a duly issued search warrant, subpoena or court order.

Such sites are operated by external, third-party service providers. Some of these sites will have their own separate membership processes and privacy policies. We do not control sites that are operated by others and are not responsible for the information practices of these sites. Other sites may set their own cookies, collect data or solicit personal information.
