Your privacy and safety is our top concern. As you use PokerPoise, we want you to understand how we use your information.
Information Collection and Use
When you register for an account, we collect your email address. The reason we collect your email address is to ensure you can 1) always login with your email; 2) recover your password in the event it's forgotten; and 3) have a means to send to you relevant notifications. Your email will never be provided to any other PokerPoise user.
In addition to asking for your email address, registration requires you create a username. Your username is used as a means to identify yourself within the PokerPoise Application. When you post a hand, comment on a hand, create or reply to a forum thread, etc. your PokerPoise username will be displayed to the PokerPoise community.
Lastly, during registration we ask you to create a password for login purposes. We will never ask you for your password and never share your password to anyone. It's simply used as a means to authenticate yourself with PokerPoise.
Once your register, you have the opportunity to provide additional information. While this is completely optional, it includes a player type (e.g., weekend warrior, etc.) and/or home casino. If you provide this information, it will be displayed to the PokerPoise community in certain instances when you contribute content to the site (e.g., create or reply to a forum thread). This information may also be used to send you tailored promotional content.
Other Site Content
PokerPoise serves as a means to create and share hands with anyone around the globe. Accordingly, the hands you create on PokerPoise is available to any user within our PokerPoise Poker Room. When you comment on a hand, we also store and display information about you, specifically the number of hands you've created and the number of times you've commented on a hand. This helps other users understand your involvement and level of engagement.
PokerPoise uses Google Analytics to help understand our users and improve our Services. As a third-party service, Google Analytics may collect information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, such as cookies or your IP address. Third-party ad partners may share information with us, like a browser cookie ID, website URL visited, mobile device ID, to help us measure and tailor advertisements.
PokerPoise will never share your information unless absolutely necessary, specifically during the following:
Legal Matters: We may disclose your information if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety of any person; or to address fraud, security or technical issues.
Updating Your Information
At any time, you have the ability to update any of your information via your PokerPoise profile. You also have the ability to inform PokerPoise that you do not want to receive any official PokerPoise email communications.
Policy for Children
Our Services are not directed to persons under 13. We do not knowingly gather information for anyone under 13 years of age. We take children privacy very seriously, and encourage parents to stay engaged. Should you have any questions regarding your child's privacy, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
