CombatACE is committed to protecting your personal privacy. This Privacy Policy outlines the types of information that are collected by CombatACE on its web sites, and how we use and protect it. This Policy also explains the choices that you can make about the way your information is collected and used. This Policy applies to all web sites operated by CombatACE, and it does not apply to banners and other advertisements or promotions that we may sponsor or participate in on web sites owned by third parties.

Our Privacy Policy governs, superceedes, and acts in force for all the sites including their respective subdomains which are publically visible and accessible as services offered by or delivered from CombatACE. (See Applicable Sites below).

Your Consent to This Privacy Policy
By using our web sites, you signify that you agree with the terms of our current Privacy Policy as posted as well as the terms of our Terms and Conditions. If you do not agree with any term in this Policy or our Terms and Conditions, please do not use this site or provide any Personal Information to us.

The Information We Collect
As used in this Privacy Policy, "Personal Information" means any information that is linked to your identity such as your name, street address, telephone number, screen name, age and/or email address. The site you entered may collect some or all of these types of Personal Information through a contest, survey, promotion, or a registration form. Some of our web sites may require registration and disclosure of particular information such as street address in order for you to participate. In order to register on our sites, we may require you to disclose your name, zip code, email address, birth date and gender. CombatACE will not collect any Personal Information from your visits to our sites unless you provide your Personal Information to us voluntarily, and we will not require you to provide more information than is necessary to participate in our web sites' activities. We also do not collect financial or other sensitive data information about our users.

When you provide us with Personal Information, you are authorizing us to use that information in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy, which includes your right to limit our use of your Personal Information as described in this Policy.

The web site you entered may also collect Personal Information from you about a third party (e.g., the site might allow you to send an email or message to a friend, in which case we will need that person's name and email address). Please note that we use such information only for the specified purpose (e.g., to deliver the email message) and we will not contact the third party again by email unless and until the third party contacts us or provides permission to do so.

The Way We Use Personal Information
When you supply Personal Information at a CombatACE web site, we will use it for the purpose for which it was collected (e.g., forum community notifications or to fulfill the delivery of a prize or product order) in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy. We may also use it to contact you regarding promotions or other products and services, which may be requested by or otherwise of interest to you. At any time, however, you may opt out of such contact by setting your notification preferences in your account settings (See Manage Your Personal Information; Unsubscribe below) or by following the unsubscribe instructions that are included in each email. We also use Personal Information to keep track of a user's activities on our sites, to statistically analyze web site usage, to improve our web site features, design and content and to refine our marketing strategies.

CombatACE's primary goal in collecting and using Personal Information is to give you a meaningful and customized experience while you are using our web sites as well as to promote our products and services in a cost effective and efficient manner.
