What information does Stratus Games collect?

Stratus Games may request and/or collect information from you on a voluntary basis when you: (1) register with us; (2) shop at our online stores (3) participate in contests, events or promotions; (4) send questions or comments via e-mail to Stratus Games customer support; (5) submit optional rules to us; or (6) fill out online surveys. The requested information may include personal information such as your name, e-mail address, telephone number, and home address. For some activities, we may also ask you to create a password and to provide demographic information such as your age, and toy and game ownership and preferences. If demographic information is collected for an activity that also requires personal information, we may combine the demographic information with your personal information. This allows us to tailor the notices we send you and the content we provide you according to your preferences and interests.

If you are under the age of 13, only your parent or guardian can provide any personal information to us for purposes of registration and other online activities. Kids, if you are ever unsure about anything you are seeing on this site, ask your parent or guardian for help.  Parents or guardians may request a copy of the information we have on file for their child and may request alteration or removal from our system at any time.

Registration

If you wish to register with our site or sign up for our newsletter, you may be asked to supply personal information such as your full name, e-mail address, and mailing address. We may also ask you to provide demographic information such as your birth date, gender, the postal code and country in which you live, and information on products you own or of interest to you. Stratus Games uses such information to periodically contact you with product information news, special offers and relevant announcements (including service announcements) and to provide other exclusive benefits to those who register on our site. 

Online Store

In the event we provide an online store, visitors purchasing goods and services through such store will need to provide your name, mailing address, phone number and e-mail address.  For payment processing, we use an external secure site (PayPal.com) and we do not receive or store any credit card or payment information. Please see PayPal’s privacy policy for questions about their privacy practices. 

Promotions/Contests

To participate in some of our promotions, you may be asked to provide an e-mail address or screen name, so that we can let you know if you won a prize. Please do not use your real name for these promotions. For other Stratus Games promotions, we may request your name and home address in order to send you products or information by regular mail. All promotions on the Stratus Games Web site are administered by Stratus Games. Your personal information is not shared with any third parties, except with entities who use it solely to provide support for the operations of the Stratus Games promotion/contest. 

E-mail / Contact Us Form

By allowing you to send e-mail to us, we are not attempting to collect any personal information about you. We will only use personal information (such as name, mailing address and e-mail address) contained in your e-mail to respond to your specific inquiry or comments in the e-mail. Although we may retain your e-mail for a period of time, we will not use any personal information contained in your e-mail for any purpose other than responding to your specific inquiry or comments.

By allowing you to send pages to friends, we are not attempting to collect any personal information about you or the person you are e-mailing. We will use the personal information supplied (such as your friend’s name and e-mail address) only to send the page as you request and allow the recipient to respond to you. This is a one-time e-mail initiated by the user of the site and this information is not stored or used by Stratus Games, other than to execute the e-mail. 

Optional Rules

Stratus Games allows users to post Optional Rules to Games, rate these rules, and post comments. All information submitted through this process becomes the intellectual property of Stratus Games LLC. By submitting content through this process you authorize Stratus games to post the information submitted to our website, or publish it through other means or media as we see fit. 

Online Surveys / Polls

In order to improve the user experience at our Web sites, we may employ online surveys for visitors to volunteer anonymous demographic information about themselves and provide us feedback about why they visit our sites and what we can do to make them better, or about products they like or other interests or information. Information collected through these surveys is anonymous; we cannot identify who is submitting the information or tie it to other personally identifiable information a user may have provided us through another means.

Whatever the activity may be, we will only collect information to the extent deemed reasonably necessary to fulfill your requests and our legitimate business objectives. If you do not want to submit personal information when requested, you will not be able to access certain areas on our site. However, you do not need to provide personal information to Stratus Games in order to use our Web site.

Who is collecting my information and how will it be used?

Stratus Games collects the personal information you provide on our site. We will use the information you submit to our Web site to send you advertising or promotional materials, including information about new products, contests, features and enhancements, special offers and other events of interest. We also use your personal information for our internal marketing and demographic studies, so we can constantly improve the products and services we provide you and can better meet your needs.

The demographic information (e.g., age and gender) you provide us is collected by Stratus Games and may be disclosed in aggregate to third parties. This aggregate demographic information cannot be used to personally identify you or your computer.

With whom does Stratus Games share my personal information?

From time to time, Stratus Games may employ and share its customers' personal information (including that of children under 13) with entities who use it solely to provide support for the internal operations of the Stratus Games website (e.g., online product fulfillment, online registration and email services, or technical support). These entities will not use your personal information for any other purpose, and have agreed to maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of the personal information they obtain from us.

We may disclose personal information (including that of children under 13) in the good faith belief that we are required to do so by law, including but not limited to disclosure to law enforcement or other government officials in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose you or us to legal liability.

Stratus Games does not sell, rent, or otherwise disclose personal information collected from and about its users (including children under 13) to third parties for promotional purposes. However, in the event of a merger, acquisition, reorganization, bankruptcy, or other similar event, Stratus Games' customer information may be transferred to Stratus Games' successor or assign, if permitted by and done in accordance with applicable law. Please see our “Questions and Complaints” section below for instructions on how we will notify you of such an event.

Log Files

Other information passively collected by Stratus Games is in the form of logs - files that record website activity and gather statistics about web users' browsing habits. These entries are generated anonymously, and help Stratus Games determine (among other things) how many and how often users have visited our Web site, which pages they've viewed, and other similar data. We also use the log file entries for our internal marketing and demographic studies, so we can constantly improve the online services we provide you. Log files are used internally only, and are not associated with any particular user, computer, or browser.

Linking to third party sites

To provide relevant information not found on our Web site, to facilitate online shopping, and to allow you to interact with other Web sites on which you may have accounts (such as Facebook and other social media sites), Stratus Games may provide links or embed third-party applications that allow login from our Web site to third party Web sites. Stratus Games will notify users when they are leaving a Stratus Games site or otherwise indicate that you will be going to a third-party’s site. Your use of these Web sites and/or applications is subject to the third parties’ privacy policies, and we encourage you to read the third party sites' privacy policies before submitting personal or other information or using the applications.

Opt-out

If you do not want Stratus Games to send you e-mail or regular mail about our products and/or services, you can opt-out at the time of registration or at the time of information collection. If you are receiving e-mails or regular mail and at a later date you choose to opt-out and have your name removed from Stratus Games’ e-mailing list, you can do so by using the link included with a Stratus Games e-mail or by using the Contact Us form.

Please note that “welcome” and service e-mail communications are not promotional in nature and, therefore, an opt-out is not provided. These are simply to notify the user of a service they recently signed up for or to notify the user of Web site issues.

Safeguarding your personal information

Stratus Games will only collect personal information to the extent deemed reasonably necessary to serve our legitimate business purposes, and we will take appropriate steps to ensure the security and integrity of any information (including that of children under 13) you provide to us.
