Summary of Important changes since the last version:

This summary is here for your convenience, so you can see what changes we’ve made to our terms since you last read them. This is not actually part of our agreement with you, and does not cover every single change we made. We hope it helps.

Added a section explaining your responsibility in handling other users' personal data. We added this as part of our continuing efforts to protect our users as they share data with one another and to clarify BoardGameGeek’s role in that data exchange.

Added a section on dispute resolutions. We added this so that you understand how the process will work if you make a legal claim against BoardGameGeek.

We made revisions to the sections on Limitation of liability and warranty disclaimer that we hope make the language clearer and more specific.

We made additional smaller changes throughout to make these terms more accessible and understandable to our users.

11. Digital Millennium Copyright Act

A. Think there is infringing content on BoardGameGeek?

If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof and believe that any user submission or other content infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a notification pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") by providing our Copyright Agent designated below with the following information in writing (see 17 U.S.C. 512(c)(3) for further detail):

(i) A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
(ii) Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
(iii) Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material;
(iv) Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail;
(v) A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
(vi) A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

The designated Copyright Agent of BoardGameGeek, LLC for receipt of notifications of claimed infringement is: Scott Alden; e-mail: dmca@geekdo.com (subject line: "DMCA Takedown Request"); 7930 Xavier Court, Dallas, TX 75218-4512. For clarity, only DMCA notices should go to the Copyright Agent; any other feedback, comments, questions, or other communications may not be answered. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the above requirements, your DMCA Takedown Request may not be valid.

B.Was your content improperly removed because of a DMCA report?

If you believe that your user submission or other content, which was removed (or to which access was disabled) pursuant to the above provision, is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the content in your user submission, then you may send a counter notification to the Copyright Agent at dmca@geekdo.com (subject line: "DMCA Counter Notification"), containing the following information:

(i) Your physical or electronic signature;
(ii) Identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled;
(iii) A statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content; and
(iv) Your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in Dallas, Texas, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement or an agent of such person.

If a counter notification is received by the Copyright Agent, then BoardGameGeek, LLC may send a copy of the counter notification to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it within 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the user who submitted the content, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days following receipt of the counter notification, at the sole discretion of BoardGameGeek, LLC.

12. WE DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES. YOUR USE OF OUR WEBSITES AND OUR CONTENT IS AT YOUR OWN RISK.

You agree to assume all responsibility and risk for your use of the Geek Websites and our content. To the fullest extent permissible under applicable law, neither BoardGameGeek nor its related parties make any express or implied warranties or representations whatsoever with respect to the Geek Websites or our content, including but not limited to any warranties of merchantability, non-infringement, and fitness for particular purpose, and all such warranties are expressly disclaimed.

Neither BoardGameGeek nor any related parties endorse or make any representation or warranty with respect to the accuracy, quality, security, reliability, timeliness, or completeness of the Geek Websites or our content or that the Geek Websites or our content is non-defamatory, non-infringing or otherwise lawful. Neither BoardGameGeek nor any related parties warrant that the functions performed by the Geek Websites or our content will be uninterrupted, timely, secure or error-free, or that defects in the Geek Websites or our content will be corrected. Neither BoardGameGeek nor any related parties guarantee or warrant that any files that may be available for downloading will be free from infection by software viruses or other harmful computer code, files, or programs. The Geek Websites and our content are provided on an “as is,” “where is,“ “where available” and “as available” basis. You acknowledge that any reliance on or use of the Geek Websites and our content is at your sole risk.

To the fullest extent provided by law, we will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by a distributed denial-of-service attack, viruses, or other technologically harmful material that may infect your computer equipment, computer programs, data, or other proprietary material due to your use of The Geek Websites, any downloads from the Geek Websites, or any other of our services.

13. OUR LIABILITY TO YOU IS LIMITED. THAT MEANS THAT IF YOU SUFFER LOSSES, WE DO NOT HAVE TO FULLY COMPENSATE YOU FOR THEM.

To the fullest extent provided by law, in no event will BoardGameGeek or any related party be liable to any person or entity for any indirect, special, punitive, incidental or consequential damages or damages resulting from lost profits, lost data or business interruption, even if foreseeable, arising out of or in connection with BoardGameGeek’s Website, including, for example:

  • the use, inability to use, or the results of use of The Geek Websites, any website linked to the Geek Websites, or our content;
  • loss, damage, corruption or recovery of data, or breach of data or system security;
  • failure or downtime of the Geek Websites, systems, or services in any way;
  • hacking, viruses, malware, or other physical or digital intrusions into our systems, including, for example, those that result in a data breach; and
  • our breach of the Terms of Service;

in any case, whether based on warranty, contract, tort or any other legal theory and whether or not BoardGameGeek or a related party is aware of or of advised the possibility of such damages.

You specifically agree that BoardGameGeek will not be liable for any other user’s content or any conduct of a third party and that you assume the full risk of harm or damage from such content and conduct.

In addition to the limitations above in this Section, the total aggregate dollar amount of BoardGameGeek’s liability to you shall not under any circumstances whatsoever exceed the total amount you have actually paid to BoardGameGeek for our services in the twelve (12) month period preceding the event giving rise to the claim. If you have not paid BoardGameGeek any fees during the twelve (12) month period preceding the event giving rise to the claim, our total liability to you shall not exceed $100. However, such limitations will not apply in the event an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction issues a final, binding order finding that your damages were caused by BoardGameGeek’s willful misconduct.

This Section does not affect any liability that cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law

14. Indemnification

A. To the maximum extent permitted by law, you agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless BoardGameGeek, BoardGameGeek, LLC, and its owners, operators, officers, directors, employees, affiliates, assigns, and agents, from and against any and all actions, claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including without limitation attorneys' fees) arising from or in connection with: (i) your use of and access to the Geek Websites; (ii) your violation of any term or provision of these Terms of Service; (iii) your failure to abide by applicable local, state, federal, and international law; (iv) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any copyright, trademark, property, or privacy right; (v) any claim that one of your User Submissions caused damage to a third party; (vi) any breach of any representation, warranty, or agreement made by you in these Terms of Service; or (vii) your disclosure, use, storage, or processing of personal information in violation of any applicable state, federal, or international privacy laws. BoardGameGeek reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, and in such case, you agree to cooperate with BoardGameGeek’s defense of such claim. In any case, you may not settle any third-party claim against us unless we consent to such settlement.

This defense and indemnification obligation survives these Terms of Service and your use of the Geek Websites.

15. YOU AGREE THAT ALL CLAIMS BETWEEN YOU AND BOARDGAMEGEEK WILL BE RESOLVED THROUGH MANDATORY ARBITRATION IN DALLAS, TEXAS, AND NOT BY A COURT OR BY A JURY.

A. You will resolve claims with an arbitrator

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to the Terms of Service, your or your authorized user’s relationship with BoardGameGeek, or your or your authorized user’s use of our services (collectively referred to as a “claim”) will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration, rather than by a court or a jury. The only exception to such mandatory arbitration is that you are NOT prohibited from resolving any such dispute or claim as an individual claim in a small claims court. The exclusive venue for the arbitration shall be Dallas County, Texas.

There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the Terms of Service as a court would.

B. You are waiving your right to a jury trial.

If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. You acknowledge that you make this jury waiver knowingly, voluntarily, and willingly.

C. You will arbitrate under certain laws and rules.

This arbitration provision is entered pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. The arbitration, and any appeal, shall be governed by the substantive law of the State of Texas and the applicable rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”).
If, for any reason, the arbitration or appeal cannot be conducted before AAA or pursuant to AAA rules, and the parties cannot agree to an alternative arbitration service or rules, any court of competent jurisdiction in Dallas County, Texas, may appoint an arbitrator or select appropriate arbitration rules to govern the arbitration or appeal.

D. The fees and costs can be split in different ways.

Each party shall pay an equal share of the arbitrator(s)’ fees and costs relating to the arbitration, subject to the arbitrator(s)’ authority to reallocate such fees and costs in his or her discretion. In any event, each party shall be responsible for payment of their own attorney’s fees and legal costs.

E. Either of us can try to bring a temporary injunction against the other.

Either party may seek temporary injunctive relief in federal or state court in Dallas County, Texas, exclusively, at any time until the selection of the arbitrator(s) is completed. Once the selection of the arbitrator(s) is completed, the arbitrator(s) shall assume responsibility for any further action or rulings with respect to any such temporary injunction action. The parties consent to personal jurisdiction and venue in the federal and state courts of Dallas County, Texas, solely for the purpose of any such temporary injunction action.

F. You are waiving your right to bring a claim against us as part of a class-action lawsuit.

We each agree that any dispute, whether arbitrated or brought in small claims court, will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. Without limiting the generality of the preceding sentence, each party agrees to pursue its claims on an individual basis and not to (1) join its claims with any other person or entity’s claims, (2) pursue any claim as a representative of a class, as a private attorney general or in any representative capacity, or (3) participate in a class or collective action or mass action with respect to any claim. It is the express intent of the parties that the arbitrator, or, as applicable, small claims court, shall not have the power to award class or collective relief or to determine or order that the dispute should proceed as a class or collective action, whether in arbitration or in any other forum or venue. The parties understand and acknowledge that by entering into this provision, we each are waiving our respective rights to have a court or jury adjudicate our claims.

G. You elect to use certain appellate rules.

The parties adopt and agree to implement the AAA Optional Appellate Arbitration Rules with respect to any award subject to this arbitration provision. Written notice of appeal shall be provided to the opposing party and the arbitration service and shall comply with the requirements of the AAA Optional Appellate Arbitration Rules or such other arbitration appellate rules to which the parties may agree or which a court may designate pursuant to the process described earlier in this Section.

16. You can’t assign your rights under these Terms of Service, but we can.

These Terms of Service, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by BoardGameGeek without restriction.

17. These Terms of Service are governed by Texas law and any claims will be dealt with in Texas.

A. The laws of the State of Texas govern all matters arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service, without giving effect to conflicts of law principles thereof.

BoardGameGeek Privacy Policy

Effective: May 25, 2018

Table of Contents

Welcome to our privacy policy!

1. What is a privacy policy?

A. Our privacy policy helps you understand what we do with your information.

We collect personal information from you as you use BoardGameGeek, BoardGameGeek Store, VideoGameGeek, RPGGeek, or any of our other websites (referred to here as our "websites"). This privacy policy explains how we—BoardGameGeek, LLC, and our affiliates—use that information and what choices you have about it.

Our privacy policy applies to ALL of our websites, whether you access them through a web browser, a mobile app, or another way. Our privacy policy does NOT apply to information collected on you by someone else. In those cases, you should consult that person’s privacy policy.

About mobile apps: We do not provide a mobile app. However, our fans sometimes create unofficial BoardGameGeek mobile apps through which you can access our websites. We are not affiliated with any mobile apps and do not know how they handle your personal information. Please read each mobile app’s privacy policies before using it.

B. Our privacy policy is part of an agreement between you and us.

Our privacy policy and our Terms of Service apply to you, our "users", as part of a contract that allows you to browse our website, post on forums, trade games, shop in the BoardGameGeek Store and the Geek Market, and otherwise interact with our websites.

Keep in mind that BoardGameGeek is a software provider. We do not represent any BoardGameGeek users. Rather, we develop an online meeting place for those people to share, trade, shop, and learn. We cannot control how other users handle your information. Please be careful when providing your information to other users.

C. Our privacy policy can change from time to time.

When we make big changes to our privacy policy, we’ll update the date at the top of this page and, if we have your email address, we’ll email you about the changes. Your use of our services after we post an updated privacy policy means that you accept and agree to the changes, so please check this page occasionally to make sure that you are up to date.

2. What is personal information?

In basic terms, "personal information" means information that can directly or indirectly identify you, such as your name, contact information, and in some cases, information about your behavior.

“Personal information” does NOT include information that we have made anonymous so that it can no longer be used to identify you. We collect anonymized data from our users for internal statistical purposes and for providing our services (such as product ratings, top games, and other trends displayed on our websites). We may pass on this anonymous grouped data to third parties, but it will not be associated with your identity.

3. What kind of personal information are you collecting on me?

We collect information from you in three ways:

    1. you give it to us directly;
    2. we get it automatically as you use our websites; or
    3. you give it to another user through our websites.

We only collect as much information about you as is reasonably necessary for us to provide you our services. The table below is a basic summary of what happens to your information. For a more complete list of what we collect, see our USER DATA SUMMARY TABLE.

If you register for an account, you will create a public profile. You may include more information on your profile as you desire, such as your full name and location, but remember that it may be accessible to anyone viewing our websites, even if they don’t have an account.

Any content posted on our websites through your account, such as forum posts, wiki pages, product reviews, marketplace listings, comments, collection listings, recorded plays, images, files, or product descriptions, is referred to as your "user contributions". Your user contributions are accessible by anyone who visits our websites. You should not include any sensitive information in your user contributions.

When you send a private message to another user through our websites, including for purposes of trades or Geek Market purchases, we will retain the data and content of the message to provide you with a helpful message thread.

5. I’m a user covered by the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”).

A. What rights do I have under the GDPR?

You have rights regarding your personal information, including the right to:

  • access your information
  • change or correct your information
  • erase your information
  • restrict our use of your personal information under certain circumstances
  • obtain your personal information in portable form
  • object to our use of your personal information under certain circumstances
  • not be subject to profiling that has legal effects on you

B. What is your lawful basis for using my personal information?

There are a couple of reasons we believe we are allowed to collect, use, and store your personal information under the GDPR.

With your consent. When you directly give us personal information for a certain purpose or otherwise express your consent, we can use that personal information for that certain purpose. If you consent for us to do so, we may use your personal information to, for example:

  • display your public profile;
  • facilitate your trades and purchases;
  • personalize and improve the advertisements displayed to you on our website;
  • send you our marketing emails; or
  • verify that you are over 16 years of age.

You can withdraw your consent at any time. Please contact us if you would like to revoke your prior consent to any of these uses.

For our legitimate interests. However, we do not always need your express consent to use your information. We can use your personal information as needed for our legitimate interests, so long as those interests do not conflict with your fundamental privacy rights and freedoms. These legitimate interests include:

  • improving the presentation, operation, and experience of our services;
  • evaluating and updating our technical infrastructure; and
  • monitoring and improving the information security of our websites.

By contract. A contract also creates a basis for using your information. By accepting our Terms of Service, a contract is formed between us and you so that we may provide you our services. We can use your personal information as needed to provide our services to you under that contract.

Law, protection, or the public good. We can also use your personal information to comply with our legal obligations, protect the vital interests of our users, and as needed for the public good. This may include using your personal information to prevent and handle potential fraud, security breaches or other prohibited activities.

6. How long do you store my information?

If you do not have an account, we will store your personal information as long as needed in the interest of system security, fraud protection, or other legitimate interests.
If you have an account, we will store your personal information and user contributions indefinitely.
Generally, if you delete your account, we will continue to store your personal information for a short time in case of any issues, and then we will delete it in accordance with our standard procedures and applicable law. However, for security purposes, we continue to store your technical data for up to eighteen (18) months after your account deletion.

Generally, if you delete your account, your user contributions will be removed in the same manner as your personal information. However, you should be careful disclosing information publicly or to other users. Although most types of user contributions will be removed upon your account deletion, any content you contributed to wiki pages, game descriptions, or other editable pages will remain public. Also, other users may still be able to access their copy of any private messages you sent to them while your account was active.

Chatroom logs are not stored. That information is deleted shortly after the chatroom closes.

7. Will you use my personal information to contact me?

As needed, we will contact you by email about your account or use of our services. As permitted by law, we may email you to advertise other products or services available from us, or to request that you complete a survey about your use of our services. You may opt out of these communications by clicking the "unsubscribe" link within an email or by contacting us at contact@boardgamegeek.com, or just click here.

We will not pass on your personal information to others that want to market to you without your consent.

8. How are you tracking me? Can I stop it?

A. We can see some of what you do in our websites.

We use tracking technology (like "cookies") to track some of what you do while using our websites. Cookies are files sent to your browser from a website or app and stored on your device. We assign a different cookie to each device that accesses our websites. That way, we can provide you with a personalized experience based on your behavior on our websites. A cookie can, among other things, identify you electronically and store your user preferences.

B. Other people can also track you as your use our websites.

Third parties who are uninvolved with BoardGameGeek may collect information about you while you are visiting our website and other websites. For example, third party marketers may use the information they collect on you to show you targeted ads across the web. BoardGameGeek works with Google’s advertising platforms to serve you advertisements on our websites, however, Google does not give us access to the information it uses to place ads for you. Google may use the personal information that they have collected about you on our sites pursuant to their own privacy policy.

If you have any questions about an ad or other targeted content, you should contact the person who placed the ad.

C. You have choices about how you are tracked.

You are always free to block, delete, or disable tracking technologies if your browser, application, or device so permits. However, if you do so, you may not be able to take advantage of certain site features. For more information on how you can block, delete, or disable these technologies, please review your browser or device settings.
If you do not want us to use your personal information to show you targeted ads for games, accessories, and other products or services we think you’d enjoy, you can opt-out by making the change in your privacy account settings. However, we may still keep and use your personal information as explained in this privacy policy.

Opting-out of our targeted ads will not prevent third parties from sending you targeted ads. You can opt out of targeted ads served via specific third party vendors by visiting the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Opt-Out page at http://optout.aboutads.info.

D. We are not set up to respond to "Do Not Track" signals.

You can also set your browser to refuse cookies by sending out a "Do Not Track" signal when you go to a website. California law requires us to disclose how we handle such a signal. However, since there is no standard for how websites should respond to “Do Not Track” signals, we do not support them and sending one won’t change anything we do.

9. Who else do you share my personal information with?

Other users

If you do business with another user, such as a trade or Geek Market purchase, we will pass on the personal information you provide to the other user, such as your name, address, and phone number, as necessary for them to complete the transaction. They are not allowed to use your personal information for any other purpose. Please contact us if another user is using your personal information inappropriately.

Our partners

Our "partners" are the organizations and people that we work with to better provide our services. As needed, we may send your information to our partners to help us communicate with you, provide customer support, or process your payments to us. Your information may be stored on our partners’ servers inside or outside of the U.S.

Our BoardGameGeek Store platform

One of our partners, Shopify, provides the software platform for the BoardGameGeek Store. Shopify may, for your convenience, collect information about your web session, such as the items in your cart, but Shopify does not provide that information to us. We will, however, be provided your contact and order information once you place an order through the BoardGameGeek Store. You can see how Shopify handles your information by reviewing their privacy policy at https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy.

Our BoardGameGeek Store shippers

If you purchase an item on the BoardGameGeek Store, we also may provide your contact information to our shipping partners, such as ShipStation, so that they may complete the order. You can see how ShipStation handles your information by reviewing their privacy policy at https://www.shipstation.com/privacy-policy/.

Our payment processors

You may provide some financial information as part of the payment process, such as credit card numbers, but we are not able to access more than the last four digits of those numbers. We use Stripe, Inc., or another payment processor, to handle user payment services. See Stripe’s privacy policy (available at https://stripe.com/privacy) for how they handle your information. See PayPal’s privacy policy (available at https://paypal.com/privacy) for how they handle your information.

Our email processor

You must provide us with you email address upon registration. We provide your contact information to MailChimp in order to send you messages in several contexts, including to send important site notices, as well as notification and mailing lists you opt into. See MailChimp's privacy policy (available at https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/) for how they handle your personal information.

Our analytics

We may use third-party web analytics services, including Google Analytics, to collect and analyze the information discussed above, and to engage in auditing, research or reporting. The information (including your IP address) collected by various analytics technologies described above will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers, who use the information to evaluate your use of the Services, including by noting the third-party website from which you arrive, analyzing usage trends, assisting with fraud prevention, and providing certain features to you. You can find more about Google's privacy policy here: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/. To opt out of Google Analytics, see https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Our help desk

We use Zendesk as a third party customer support system. When you contact us through the contact or feedback forms, your information may be passed to Zendesk. See Zendesk's privacy policy (https://www.zendesk.com/company/customers-partners/privacy-policy/) for how they handle your personal information.

Our spam filter

We use Automattic for spam filtering. We provide contents of public posts along with your IP address to Automattic for automated spam filtering. See Automattic's privacy policy, https://automattic.com/privacy-notice/ for how they handle your personal information.

Our backup provider

Our backups are stored encrypted by Arcserve. Only we can decrypt the data.

When we need to for legal or security reasons

We may have to share your information with the police, the government, a court, or another person as required by law. Similarly, as allowed by applicable law, we may share your information with third parties as needed to:

  • prevent or take action if we suspect someone is:
    • breaking the law,
    • committing fraud,
    • threatening to harm someone, or
    • violating our Terms of Service;
  • protect the rights, property, or safety of ourselves, our users, or a child;
  • protect the safety and security of our website; or
  • enable us to take reasonable precautions against liability.

To a new owner of our company

If our business is sold, whether through merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, or other transaction or proceeding, your personal information may be shared with the acquiring company and their representatives. If so, we will post a notice on this page and the Terms of Service.

With your permission

BoardGameGeek will always ask for your permission before sharing your information with third parties for purposes other than those described in our privacy policy.

10. Does my personal information leave my home country?

BoardGameGeek is located in the U.S. If you are outside of the U.S., we will transfer your personal information into the U.S. If you do business with another user, your personal information will be sent to the country in which the other user is located.

11. Can I see what information you have on me?

Yes. You may review your personal information maintained by us. We can provide you with exported files of your information—just ask us.

As required by your applicable state, national, or international law, you may also have the right require us to change or delete your personal information, and/or refuse to permit us from further collecting or using your information.

12. How do I change or delete my information?

You can update some types of information directly within your account settings. If you are unable to change your information within your account settings, please contact us and we will attempt to make the required changes. To protect your privacy and security, we may require you to take certain steps or provide additional information to verify your identity before we provide any information or make corrections. It’s important to remember that if you delete or limit the use of your information, our services may not function properly.

You may delete your account by clicking Delete your account at the bottom of the Account Manager page.

See How long do you store my information? for what happens to your information after your account is deleted.

14. What about information that I receive from other users for trades, Geek Market purchases, and other transactions on your websites?

If you do business with another user, such as a trade or Geek Market purchase, we will pass on to you the personal information they provide, such as their name, address, and phone number, as necessary for you to complete the transaction. Since you are the controller of such data, separately from us, you should inform other users about your privacy practices. In any case, you must abide by privacy laws and respect the privacy rights granted to other users.
You may only use another user’s personal information for transaction-related purposes and for purposes expressly consented by that user. Using personal information of other users for any other purpose violates our Terms of Service.

15. I'm under the age of 16. Can I use your websites?

No. Our website is not intended for anyone younger than 16 years old. You may not create an account or use any of the features of the websites that an account permits.

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 16. If we learn we have received personal information from a child under 16, we will remove it (although we may not be able to fully remove the information from our backup system). If you believe we might have a child’s personal information, please contact us.

16. I am a California resident. Do I have any special rights?

Yes. California Civil Code Section § 1798.83, as it may from time to time be amended or superseded, permits California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of their information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please contact us.

17. I am a Canadian resident. Do I have any special rights?

Yes. Canadian residents have certain rights under Canadian law with respect to their personal data, including the right to request access to, correct, amend, delete, or limit the use of their personal data. Canadian residents also have the right to withdraw their consent to certain of our online tracking programs.

In accordance with Canada's Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA), we are responsible for the information of Canadian residents if we transfer it to a third party. Before we send a Canadian resident's information to a third party, that party must agree to handle the information only as we direct them to and to protect the information as least as well as we do.
To exercise any of these rights, please contact us.

18. Who can I contact with questions?
