Introduction (back to top)

The Emperor's Hammer (www.emperorshammer.org) is committed to respecting the privacy rights of all visitors to our Web site in accordance with industry standards and the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), effective as of April 21, 2000. By using this site, you signify your acceptance of the Emperor's Hammer Privacy Policy detailed herein. If you do not agree with this policy, do not provide any personally identifiable information to us or do not use the Web site.

For each visitor to the Emperor's Hammer Web site, our Web server automatically recognizes only the IP address and the manufacturer of the web browser in use.

Parents (back to top)

We encourage parents and guardians to take an active role to protect the privacy of their children and to prevent inappropriate use of information about their children. Parents and guardians should instruct their children never to give out real names or any other identifying information over the Internet without first getting parental permission. The Emperor's Hammer will remove any information provided online by children upon the request of the child or the parent or guardian.

We may collect the name of a child or parent and online contact information in order to obtain parental consent to parents of kids under 13 or to provide parental notice. If a visitor indicates that he/she is under the age of 13, HE/SHE WILL BE ASKED TO SUPPLY A PARENT'S OR GUARDIAN'S E-MAIL ADDRESS. In this case, the parent or guardian will receive an e-mail message containing instructions on how to enable the child's club membership and until the parent or guardian enables the child's registration, they will not be a member of the Emperor's Hammer. If we do not receive the parent's or guardian's said consent within a reasonable time, we delete this information from our records. We also may collect this information to respond to a specific request from a child under 13. Once we respond to a request from a child under 13, we may not contact your child again and the information is deleted from our records.

You can always ask us to review or delete any of your child's information at any time by sending us a written request at the Contact Information below and you can ask that we do not use or collect any more personal information from your child. However, if you ask us to delete your child's information that is necessary to participate in our activities, we may have to ask your child not to participate in our activities.

Special Note to Kids (back to top)

If you are under 13 years old, ask your parent or guardian BEFORE giving out any information about yourself, such as your name, age, address or e-mail address. You do not have to give any personal information about yourself. Remember, if you are under 13 you must have your parent or guardian make any changes to information given to us in the past or to update your profile. If you are ever unsure about anything you are seeing on this Web site, ask your parent or guardian for help.

If you are 13 years or older, you may have the ability to participate in online meetings or competitions, e-mail other users or post messages on portions of this and affiliated Web sites. In the event that you do post messages, remember that other users may have access to your e-mail address and user name.
