PlayStar is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the PlayStar Web site and governs data collection and usage. By using the PlayStar website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.
Collection of your Personal Information
PlayStar collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. PlayStar also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by PlayStar. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by PlayStar for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the PlayStar Web site.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through PlayStar public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: PlayStar does not read any of your private online communications.
PlayStar encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from PlayStar so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. PlayStar is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the PlayStar and PlayStar family of Web sites.
Use of your Personal Information
PlayStar collects and uses your personal information to operate the PlayStar Web site and deliver the services you have requested. PlayStar also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from PlayStar and its affiliates. PlayStar may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
PlayStar does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. PlayStar may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, PlayStar may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to PlayStar, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
PlayStar does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
PlayStar keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within PlayStar, in order to determine what PlayStar services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within PlayStar to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
PlayStar Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on PlayStar or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of PlayStar; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of PlayStar, or the public.
The PlayStar Web site uses "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize PlayStar pages, or register with PlayStar site or services, a cookie helps PlayStar to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same PlayStar Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the PlayStar features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the PlayStar services or Web sites you visit.
Use of Third Party Reviews
The PlayStar Web site may utilize third party reviews to enhance your online experience. These reviews are written by actual customers and may have been orignally submitted and/or posted on the websites of PlayStar's customers. These reviews are for informational purposes only. If you have any questions about a review or the performance of any product, please call us at 1-888-PLAYSTAR (752-9782) and we will be more than happy to provide additional information.
Security of Personal Information
PlayStar secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. PlayStar secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
Changes to this Statement
PlayStar will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. PlayStar encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how PlayStar is protecting your information.
