Personal Information

Stratics is an online publisher of massive, multiplayer online (MMO) gaming information, the host of online community, and a facilitator for careers in the gaming industry. Volunteers and users may be required, as appropriate, to provide Stratics with certain personal information, including but not limited to: name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address (“Personal Information”). Stratics will use your Personal Information to establish your account, communicate with you, and for ongoing record keeping. Stratics will not release your Personal Information without your express permission, except:

  • as permitted by this Privacy Policy;
  • as permitted in any written agreement between you and Stratics;
  • when deemed necessary to conduct business; and
  • when deemed necessary to enforce Stratics’s Terms and Agreements.

In compliance with the requirements of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), Stratics does not knowingly collect any Personal Information from anyone under the age of 13. Stratics content, products, and services are directed at volunteers and users who are at least 13 years old or older. We urge parents and guardians to monitor and review the Internet-based activities of children in their care.

Sharing Personal Information

Stratics will not sell or trade your Personal Information.

If a volunteer or user voluntarily publishes his or her own Personal Information on any public medium owned or operated by Stratics, we vigorously eschew any and all liable or responsibility regarding how this data is used. We urge volunteers and users to protect their Personal Information and to avoid publishing it publicly.

Anonymous Information

Anonymous Information includes impersonal information, such as domain names, IP addresses, browser details, referring URLs, and other data that is not personally identifiable. We collect and use Anonymous Information to improve features, tailor advertising, conduct market research, and enforce our Terms of Use. We share Anonymous Information with select advertisers and partners. However, we do not share Anonymous Information if it is linked to your Personal Information unless you have expressly given us authorization to do so.

Use of Cookies

Stratics uses cookies to understand and save your preferences for future visits, to populate aggregated data for tailored ad serving, and to discover trends in order to improve our web-based content, products, and services. Cookies are small files that websites and service providers use, when allowed, to recognize and remember certain technical information about your browser. Stratics will not use cookies to collect Personal Information—only to collect anonymous technical information. We may collaborate with third-party services to better understand this information. In such cases, these third-party services are prohibited from using collected data except to expressly improve Stratics content, products, or services. Third-party advertisers may use their own cookies for tailored ad serving.

Third Party Relationships

Stratics may form relationships with third party service providers in order to provide additional services and functionality to our users. In cases of co-branded websites and products, we may provide some Personal or Anonymous Information with these partners in order to ensure interoperability between our services. When volunteers, users, or visitors sign up for these services, we strongly encourage them to read the privacy policies published by our third party partners. We are not liable for the privacy policies or practices of our third party partners.

Security

Stratics relies upon state-of-the-art security practices and protocols to protect the Personal Information of our volunteers, users, and visitors. We are strongly committed to preventing the loss, misuse, or alteration of any Personal Information entrusted to us.
