PRIVACY POLICY

Updated as of February 11, 2018

 

 

How Our Service Works

(AFD) Assault Force Delta (“we” “us” “our” or “AFD-GAMING”) is dedicated to respecting the privacy of its visitors, customers, and users (“Users”) of AFD-GAMING, as well as other AFD-GAMING brands, products and services (the “Services”). When you visit and interact with the Services you may provide information about yourself or your opinions, and it is wise and prudent to be aware of the personal information that you are sharing.  We understand this and we have established this Privacy Policy (“Policy) to explain how we collect information from you and how this information is used. We have created side summaries to help you easily locate specific terms within this policy.  These summaries are for reference only and in the event that there is a discrepancy between this Privacy Policy and the language of the side summaries, the Privacy Policy will prevail.

 

Who is Eligible to Use the Services

To use the Services, you must be 18 years of age or older. If you are under age 18, you may only use the Services with the involvement of a parent or legal guardian. By registering on the Services, you represent and warrant that you are not required to register as a sex offender with any local, state or federal government entity. No User may participate where doing so would be prohibited by any applicable law or regulation.

 

Children and Safety

The Services are a general audience website for Users who are 18 years of age or older. The safety and privacy of children is extremely important to AFD-GAMING and we use the safeguards described below to protect children.

 

Our registration process is designed to restrict children under age 18 from becoming Users of the Services without the involvement of a parent or legal guardian, through use of an age gate mechanism on the registration page.  If we receive information suggesting that a User of one of our Sites is under age 18, we require the User to provide evidence, the nature of which is determined by AFD-GAMING, confirming that the User is at least 18 years old, and we reserve the right to suspend the User’s account while we review the evidence and verify the User’s age. If the User fails to provide such evidence within 48 hours, we may terminate the User's account and delete all personal information displaying on the Services.

 

For more information about protecting your privacy, please visit the Federal Trade Commission’s web site. In addition to the previously mentioned safeguards for the detection and removal of Members under the age of 18, we have a process for parents to contact AFD-GAMING directly so that we can take the proper steps required to be in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).

 

We do not knowingly collect or solicit any information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register for the Service. The Services and its content are not directed at children under the age of 13. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at Member Services, (AFD) Assault Force Delta, 710 Cedarbrook Drive, Painesville OH 44077, submit your request here, or email .

 

Parents: If your child is under the age of 13 and has joined the Services using a false age, please notify us at admin@afd-gaming.com , and we will terminate your child's account and delete all personal information displaying on the Services. If you would like to know more about our site, stored information about your child, or how to terminate your child's account, please send your request by mail to Member Services, (AFD) Assault Force Delta, 710 Cedarbrook Drive Painesville, OH 44077 or by EMAIL. We will happily respond to all communications from parents with privacy questions or concerns.

You may also be required to select a password for accessing your account. To complete the registration process, we send you a validation message.  Once you receive the validation message, you must follow the instructions so that we can authenticate your identity and registration.

To make searching and finding other users on the Services easier we may allow Users to search for other Users using a first and last name or an email address. If you opt into sharing your location through your mobile device, we may display your location within your profile. We may update your location to the city and state associated with the location of your mobile device upon each login.

We also caution you not to share sensitive information (such as full names, social security numbers, credit card numbers, and driver's license numbers) with other Users whom you do not know well, or place such information in your profile. Be aware that when you publish content or information on the Services you are allowing everyone, including non-Users and people off the Services, to access that information and to associate it with you.

 

We use your profile information for the purposes of providing our services to you, such as to analyze demographics, to better personalize our various offerings for you and other Users, and to enable other Users to find your profile.  We also use your email address to communicate with you about the Services and its features.

From time to time we may extend to you information and offers from our partner companies, including news and additional details on products and services. Your usage history may result in offer screens or products specifically tailored to you. We may also produce reports for advertisers that aggregate, in an anonymous manner, information about your and other Site users’ activity on the Services.  For example, we may report to advertisers the number of Users who clicked on an ad, or the number of Users that visited different portions of the Services. This information will not include your personal information, or specify your individual online usage patterns.
