misleading others (including attempting to obtain password, account, or other
information from a user);

As used in
this policy, the terms "using" and "processing" information include using
cookies on a computer, subjecting the information to statistical or other
analysis and using or handling information in any way, including, but not
limited to collecting, storing, evaluating, modifying, deleting, using,
combining, disclosing and transferring information within our organization or
among our affiliates within the United States or internationally.
Collection and Use
Our primary
goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Services, to
administer your membership, and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate
Identifiable Information.
* When you
register with us, either through the Site or on one of the Services, we may ask
you for personally identifiable information. This refers to information about
you that can be used to contact or identify you ("Personal Information").
Personal Information includes, but is not limited to, your name, phone number,
credit card or other billing information, email address and home and business
postal addresses. We also collect the other information that you provide as part
of registration and the administration and personalization of your account
(e.g., without limitation, zip code (on its own) and individual preferences)
("Non-Identifying Information"). We use your Personal Information (in some
cases, in conjunction with Non-Identifying Information) mainly to provide the
Services, complete your transactions, and administer your inquiries.
* Certain
Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of your Personal
Information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining
your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be
identified. But the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying
Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other
non-identifying information (for example, your viewing preferences). We may
combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and aggregate
it with information collected from other Ground And Pound Gaming Users (defined below) to
attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and
value of the Services and to analyze and understand how our Site and Services
are used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to
serve you specifically, for instance, to deliver a product to you according to
your preferences or restrictions.
Log Data. When
you visit the Site or the Services, whether as a Ground and Pound Gaming
subscriber or a non-registered user just browsing (any of these, a "Ground and
Pound Gaming User"), our servers automatically record information that your
browser sends whenever you visit a website ("Log Data"). This Log Data may
include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address,
browser type or the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Site, pages
of our Site that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you
search for on our Site, access times and dates, and other statistics. We use
this information to monitor and analyze use of the Services, for their technical
administration, to increase their functionality and user-friendliness, and to
better tailor them to our visitors' needs. For example, some of this information
is collected so that when you visit the Services again, it will recognize you
and serve advertisements and other information appropriate to your interests. We
also use this information to verify that visitors to the Services meet the
criteria required to process their requests. We do not treat Log Data as
Personal Information or use it in association with other Personal Information,
though we may aggregate, analyze and evaluate such information for the same
purposes as stated above regarding other Non-Identifying Information.
Like many
websites, we use "cookies" to collect information. A cookie is a small data file
that we transfer to your computer's hard disk for record-keeping purposes. We
use cookies for two purposes. First, we utilize persistent cookies to save your
registration ID and login password for future logins to the Services. Second, we
utilize session ID cookies to enable certain features of the Services, to better
understand how you interact with the Services and to monitor aggregate usage by
Ground and Pound Gaming Users and web traffic routing on the Services. Unlike
persistent cookies, session cookies are deleted from your computer when you log
off from the Services and then close your browser. Third party advertisers on
the Services may also place or read cookies on your browser. You can instruct
your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt
you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept
cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions or functionalities of
the Services.
Emailing Via a
Ground and Pound Gaming Account(
details@gandpgaming.com )
As part of the
Services, Ground and Pound Gaming Subscribers may communicate with Ground and
Pound Gaming Subscribers and non-registered users through use of their accounts.
Where Ground and Pound Gaming Subscribers have selected the option of adding one
or more email addresses to an online form, the message they create in the
corresponding template will be sent from Ground and Pound Gaming to those email
addresses on their behalf. These email addresses will be stored in the address
book the Ground and Pound Gaming Subscriber creates and will be used only for
the purpose of sending the email communication to the addressee.
Identity theft
and the practice currently known as "phishing" are of great concern to Ground
and Pound Gaming. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity
theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your
credit card information, your account ID, login password, or national
identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone
communication. For more information about phishing, visit the Federal Trade
Commission's website.
Sharing and Disclosure
Ground and
Pound Gaming Registration. When you register through the Services and submit
your Personal Information to create a profile webpage or join one of the
Services, Ground and Pound Gaming Users will see your username and the other
information about you ("Required Subscriber Identifiers"). You can choose what
other Personal Information you provide as part of your profile ("Other
Subscriber Information") and in some cases you can choose whether to share that
information publicly on the Services by making selections via the "user
preferences" section of your profile webpage. We will display your Personal
Information in your profile page and elsewhere on the Services according to the
preferences you set in your account. Any information you choose to provide
should reflect how much you want other Ground and Pound Gaming Users to know
about you. We recommend that you guard your anonymity and sensitive information
and we encourage members to think carefully about what information about
themselves they disclose in their profile pages. You can review and revise your
profile information at any time. We recommend that you guard your anonymity and
sensitive information and that you not use your real name as your username,
since that would allow others to identify you.
Information and Non-Identifying Information. We may share aggregated information
that includes your Personal Information, Non-Identifying Information and Log
Data with third parties for industry analysis and demographic profiling and to
deliver targeted advertising about other products and services.
Providers. We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our
Services, to provide the Services on our behalf, to perform tasks, (e.g.,
without limitation, maintenance services, database management, web analytics and
improvement of the Services) or to assist us in analyzing how our Services are
used. These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to
perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it
for any other purpose. We may also provide Personal Information to our business
partners or other trusted entities for the purpose of providing you with
information on goods or services we believe will be of interest to you. You can,
at any time, opt out of receiving such communications.
with Laws and Law Enforcement. We will disclose any information about you to
government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole
discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal
process (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and
rights of Ground and Pound Gaming or a third party, to protect the safety of the
public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or
to pose a risk of being, any illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity.
Transfers. Ground and Pound Gaming may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or
all of its assets, including your Personal Information, in connection with a
merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets or in the event of
Changing or
Deleting Your Information
Subscribers may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information in
their registration profile by changing the applicable information in their
account settings or, for Services that are hosted on a social networking site,
by changing the applicable information in their profile page. If you completely
delete all such information, then your account may become deactivated. If you
would like us to delete your record in our system, please contact us and we will
attempt to accommodate your request if we do not have any legal obligation to
retain the record. See below for privacy contact information.
Ground and
Pound Gaming is very concerned with safeguarding your information. We employ
administrative, physical and electronic measures designed to protect your
information from unauthorized access. We will make any legally required
disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your
unencrypted electronically stored "personal data" (as defined in applicable
state statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous
posting on the Services in the most expedient time possible and without
unreasonable delay, insofar as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law
enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach
and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.

International Transfer
information may be transferred to - and maintained on - computers located
outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction
where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction.
If you are located outside the United States and choose to provide information
to us, Ground And Pound Gaming transfers Personal Information to the United States and processes
it there. Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of
such information represents your agreement to that transfer.
Links to
Other Sites
Our Services
contain links to other websites. If you choose to visit an advertiser by
clicking on a banner ad or other type of advertisement, or click on another
third party link, you will be directed to that third party's website. The fact
that we link to a website or present a banner ad or other type of advertisement
is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with
that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information
security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party
websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on
your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other
sites follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal
information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or
statements of the other websites you visit.
