Privacy Policy

Last Updated: 2015-07-20 10:02 EST

Preface: I cribbed this privacy policy from a number of sites and it covers just about all eventualities. Let me be clear. I use Google Analytics, Google Adsense (for advertisement), Double Click for Publishers, and drupal. All of these things generate cookies and capture data. Most of it isn’t able to be tracked directly to an individual except the activity you perform on the site, like comments, battle results, participation in leagues and the like. The data I capture, as described below in further detail, is used to a) provide the functionality of the site, and b) to fulfill my addiction to statistics. Stats are cool. iToysoldiers is an act of love by a guy who loves miniature war gaming as much as you. I’m not doing this to make money by stealing your personal data. Good gaming!

The iToysoldiers Platform, including the website, is owned and operated by Rob Tacey (“iToysoldiers” or “We”). We understand you value your privacy. At iToysoldiers, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe. This statement governs information you provide to us or we learn from your use of the iToysoldiers Platform and tells you how we may collect, use and, in some instances, share this information.

The Information iToysoldiers Collects

Information You Provide: You may provide to iToysoldiers what is generally called “personally identifiable” information (such as your name, age, zip code, email address, postal mailing address, and telephone number) if you use certain services or products from the iToysoldiers Platform or otherwise use the features and functionality of the iToysoldiers Platform.

“Automatically Collected” Information: When you access the iToysoldiers Platform (including through your computer or your mobile device) or open one of our HTML emails, we may automatically record certain information from your system by using different types of tracking technology. This “automatically collected” information my include Internet Protocol address (“IP Address”), a unique user ID, version of software installed, system type, your gaming preferences, the content and pages that you access on the iToysoldiers Platform, and the dates and times that you visit the iToysoldiers Platform.

“Cookies” Information: When you access the iToysoldiers Platform, we may send one or more cookies — small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters — to your computer. iToysoldiers may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the iToysoldiers Platform in order to improve your experience, as explained in B below. Persistent cookies can be removed. Please review your web browser "Help" file to learn the best way to modify your cookie settings.

Your User ID: Your User ID is displayed throughout the iToysoldiers Platform and is therefore available to the public. Other people can see your battle results, pictures, feedback, ratings and associated comments, etc. Therefore, if you associate your actual name with your User ID, the people to whom you have revealed your name will be able to personally identify your activities on the iToysoldiers Platform.

iToysoldiers may use "Automatically Collected" information and "Cookies" information to: (a) automatically update the iToysoldiers application on your system; (b) remember your information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you access the iToysoldiers Platform; (c) provide customized third-party advertisements, content and information both on and off the iToysoldiers Platform; (d) monitor and report on the effectiveness of third-party marketing campaigns; (e) monitor and report aggregate usage metrics such as total number of visitors and pages accessed; and (d) track your entries, submissions, and status in any promotions or other activities.
