Our Approach to Privacy

EAGB.net respects your privacy. Our staff and others who help us operate our web site follow this policy on privacy and fair information practices for online activities of EAGB.net.

This Privacy Policy applies to the web sites, or networks, owned by EAGB.net, including EAGB/Advance.net and EAGB/GameBoy.net. We refer to these web sites as the "EAGB.net Sites."

While EAGB.net Sites each offer a different combination of services and tools from one site to another, this policy states EAGB.netís company-wide Privacy Policy with regard to data-collection practices.

By registering as a member of a EAGB.net Site, you agree to accept this Privacy Policy and are aware that our policy may change over time as discussed below.

Overview of our Policy

The security of personal information is a high priority at EAGB.net. We maintain these web sites and all associated data with technical, administrative and physical safeguards to protect against loss, unauthorized access, destruction, misuse, modification and improper disclosure. No computer system or information can ever be fully protected against every possible hazard. But EAGB.net is committed to providing reasonable and appropriate security controls to protect our web sites and their information against foreseeable hazards.

The information you provide helps us make the EAGB.net Sites more fun and useful for you. It also enables us to give you updates about our services. When you become a registered member of one of our sites, you may receive updates about our services from EAGB.net. Users should not receive any e-mail or postal mail from any other parties as a result of signing up to become a member of a EAGB.net Site unless the user has expressly "opted-in" to receiving such e-mail.

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information in public areas of a EAGB.net Site, such as our message boards, your information can be viewed and possibly used by others. We advise users not to disclose information that can be used to contact the user ("Personally Identifiable information") that they do not wish for others to obtain, such as full name, home address, or phone number.

Changes to this Policy

This Privacy Policy will always be available to users on this page for you to read. We will update this privacy and fair information practices policy to reflect new features, services and options, as well as any other changes with regard to the use of personal information. Users will be notified by a notice on the home pages of the EAGB.net Sites of any significant update to our Privacy Policy. By registering as a member of a EAGB.net Site, you agree to accept this Privacy Policy and are aware that our policy may change over time. Continued use of the EAGB.net Sites or other EAGB.net services will signify that you agree to these changes.

Information Collection and Use

Below are more details about the information the EAGB.net Sites gather from you and how we use it.

A. E-mail Newsletters. Several EAGB.net Sites may offer e-mail newsletters. Only registered users will be able to receive newsletters. We will use your e-mail address only to send you the newsletter(s) that you signed up for. As a policy, we do not sell our newsletter subscriber lists to third parties but we may send notices to the lists on behalf of third parties and our newsletters may contain advertisements from EAGB.net sponsors or advertisers. If you want to update your e-mail address or stop receiving our newsletter, follow the procedures to unsubscribe at the bottom of any newsletter we send you.

B. Membership Information. When you register for membership on one of our sites, we may ask for information about you and your interests. We do this so we can better understand what you like and tailor the site to suit you better. At a minimum, we require your name, birth date, gender, e-mail address and zip code. The more information you volunteer, the more we can tailor the site and promotions to your interests. By becoming a member, you authorize us and our third-party service providers to send you e-mail updates and information about promotions offered by EAGB.net, the service providers and our advertisers. We take care to require that our third-party service providers only use our memberís data as necessary to provide the particular service and to give you updates on that service providerís products and services. You can cancel your membership at any time by following the procedures to unsubscribe.

C. E-mail Updates to Members. The EAGB.net Sites and our partners may periodically send service e-mail updates announcing special offers and/or new features to registered users. If you want to update your e-mail address or stop receiving our e-mail service announcements, please follow the procedures to unsubscribe at the bottom of any e-mail we send you.

D. Promotions. We may ask you for Personally Identifiable Information at other times, including, but not limited to, when you enter sweepstakes, contests or promotions sponsored by a third party. If you choose to enter sweepstakes, contests or promotions of this nature, we may share your Personally Identifiable Information with the third party so they can contact you. The third party may use that information to send you advertisements or other notices, and it is possible that your information may be shared with others.

E. Surveys and User Research. EAGB.net conducts e-mail and web-delivered surveys from time to time, as well as instant polls, to gather information about our audience. It is important to remember that taking these surveys and polls is entirely optional. You have no obligation to respond to them. We share only the aggregate results of these surveys, not individual data, with our advertisers and partners to help them better understand our services and monitor the reach of their advertising on our service. We also store some of the information that our users provide in these surveys to help us understand your interests and to make the site more useful for you.

F. 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 our site involves cookies. Cookies help us and our advertising service (discussed below) track the frequency and placement of advertisements. Cookies also enable us to measure aggregate, or total usage and traffic to our site and to specific offerings. This aids us in producing content that best meets our usersí 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 our site 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 EAGB.net 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].

G. Sites You Visit. As you access our Affiliate Sites and browse around, EAGB.net may store information about which pages and which Affiliate Sites you visit and other information presented in your browserís URL address line. EAGB.net will use this information to help determine what our users are most interested in.

H. Other Third Parties. EAGB.net may share 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.

I. Legal Authorities. The EAGB.net Sites may also disclose Personally Identifiable Information in cases when we have reason to believe that it is necessary to identify someone who may be violating EAGB.netís Member Terms of Service or may be causing injury to EAGB.netís rights or property, other users, or anyone else. The EAGB.net Sites may disclose Personally Identifiable Information of our users to government authorities at our discretion.

Access to Other Sites Through EAGB.net

You should be aware that when you are on a EAGB.net site, you will have the opportunity to visit, or link to, other sites not associated with EAGB.net. These sites are not owned or operated by EAGB.net. Such sites are operated by external, third-party service providers. Some of these sites will have their own separate membership processes and privacy policies. The EAGB.net Sites do not control sites that are operated by others and so cannot be responsible for the information practices of these sites. Other sites may set their own cookies, collect data or solicit personal information. It is always a good idea to check the Privacy Policy and Terms of Use of any site before offering any of your personal information.

Security

The EAGB.net Sites use diligent efforts to protect the security and integrity of the information you provide to us once it is received on our systems. However, when you submit information about yourself to the EAGB.net Sites over the Internet, the information may travel over many systems that are not under the control of EAGB.net.
