Personally Identifiable Information we collect may include your name, email addresses, postal addresses, ZIP code, geolocation information upon user login, telephone number, credit card information, date of birth, gender, age, social security number, user name and password, console/hardware information, social media account information, and other information either desirable or necessary to provide quality services to our customers and visitors. We may also collect information about you such as your use of the Site and communication preferences. Personally Identifiable Information may be collected to determine if users meet legal qualifications necessary to use the services of the Site.
To the extent we are able to do so, we may link your Non-Personally Identifiable Information with your Personally Identifiable Information. We may also link information collected online with information we collect offline or that is collected online by third parties.

We also may share with third parties aggregated demographic and statistical information that is not personally identifiable.
GamerzArena also may disclose an individual's personal information:
GamerzArena may be required to use or disclose your information in connection with a legal action or other proceeding, including without limitation, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement or regulatory agency's request.
Through the Site, GamerzArena may make available areas that allow for user interaction, including blogs, forums, bulletin board services, chat areas, or other message and communications features (collectively, “Interactive Areas”).

Please remember that any information that is disclosed in the Interactive Areas becomes public information, and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information or disseminate any other user-generated content.
The Site may feature social media interfaces allowing Users to connect social media accounts and GamerzArena User accounts, in which case user-generated content or other Non-Personally Identifiable Information may become public information. GamerzArena cannot control the privacy policies or practices of social media providers who operate outside of GamerzArena’s control.

GamerzArena may use a third-party service provider, to serve advertisements on GamerzArena’s behalf across the Internet and/or sometimes on the Site. Should a service provider display online advertisements to you, they may place one or more “cookies,” pixel tags and/or other similar mechanisms on your computer in order to recognize your computer each time it displays an ad to you. Because GamerzArena’s service provider serves ads on many different websites, it is able to compile information over time about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw and/or clicked on the advertisements it displays. GamerzArena’s service provider may share that information with GamerzArena. GamerzArena’s service provider and/or GamerzArena may use this information to make predictions about your characteristics, interests or preferences and to display targeted advertisements that our service provider believes may be of interest to you. GamerzArena’s service provider may also associate this information with your subsequent visit, purchase or other activity on participating advertisers’ website in order to determine the effectiveness of the advertisements.
While a service provider may use some of the information it collects in order to personalize the ads it shows you, its system(s) are typically designed to select ads only on data that does not personally and directly identify you. For example, it may select the ads it displays according to certain general interest categories or segments that it has inferred based on (a) demographic or interest data, including any you may have provided when creating an account on the Site and Software (e.g., age, address, zip or postal code, gender), demographic or interest data acquired from other companies, and a general geographic location derived from your IP address and (b) the pages you view and links you click when using our service provider’s and its advertising partners’ websites and services. For more information about how targeted ads work, visit Managing Your Privacy at the Network Advertising Initiative website. GamerzArena’s service provider may also use non-personally identifiable information collected from you in its “data cooperative” to run targeted advertising campaigns.
You also have a right to opt-out of personalized targeted ads. Please note that when you opt-out using this method the Network Advertising Initiative will place an opt-out cookie on your computer. If you delete, block, or otherwise restrict cookies, you may need to renew your opt-out choice. Once you have opted out, our service provider will no longer use information it has collected to help deliver targeted advertisements.
Your browser and other mechanisms may permit you to send do-not-track signals or other similar signals to express your preferences regarding online tracking. Currently we do not respond to do not track signals. As noted above, third parties, such as our advertising partners, may collect data that relates to you. We cannot control third parties’ responses to do-not-track signals or other such mechanisms. Third parties’ use of data relating to you and responsiveness to do-not-track signals is governed by their respective privacy policies.
