   Privacy Policy

As a company, GamePoint BV (GP, we or us) recognizes the importance of protecting certain information collected from users. Therefore, GP has adopted a company wide privacy policy that guides how we will ensure that the privacy of our online visitors and players is respected.

Do not disclose your password
Please note that the use of, or access to, some of our online services will require you to provide us with personal information, which may include (without limitation) your name, home address, phone number, credit card number, and/or e-mail address (collectively referred to herein as personal information). This Privacy Policy details how we safeguard the privacy of our online visitors and does not apply to information that may be collected by GP offline. Whenever you voluntarily disclose any personal information through the use of our on-line services, this Privacy Policy does not apply to you anymore with regard to the disclosed information. This means you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any account ID or password you use to register, and you should always be careful and responsible whenever disclosing information online.. Understand that GP employees will never request your password.  

Online Chat Rooms and Profiles
You may choose to disclose information, including personal information, about yourself in our online chat rooms, message boards, user profiles for public view or in similar forums on our sites(Public places). Information that you disclose in any of these Public places is public information and there is no expectation of privacy or confidentiality there. You should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of these Public places, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. GP is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these Public places.

GP will not share personal information with any third-party unless the user agrees to such disclosure in advance. In such event, such partners will be prohibited from disclosing such information or using such information except for the limited purposes for which such users agree to share such information. 

Third party websites
Furthermore, third-party web sites and companies with links to and from our online services may collect personally identifiable information about users. You should be aware that these third-party web sites or links may have their own information collection practices and privacy policies.

Violation and rights
We reserve the right to disclose your personal information as required by law or in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing such information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against you if you are violating the Terms of Service or Code of Conduct for a GP on-line service or product, or may be causing injury to or interference (intentionally or unintentionally) with our rights or property, other users of a GP on-line service or product, or anyone else who could be harmed by your activities.

Transfer of rights
As with any business, your personal information is also an asset of GP and will become part of our normal business records.
