RB's Privacy Policy

 

This Privacy Policy describes how Rogue Blades collects and uses the personal information you provide on the websites of Rogue Blades Entertainment and Rogue Blades Foundation. It also describes the choices available to you regarding our use of your personal information and how you can access and update this information. Your privacy is critically important to us. We do not collect information from you unless we need it, such as your email address in order to verify your account should you choose to become a member/subscriber, your phone number as required by shipping companies should you choose to take advantage of any pre-release or other special offers, your payment information either to pay you when we accept your work or to collect payment from you when you purchase something from us.

 

We also don’t care how old you are, as everything on our web pages is for all ages. However, if we discover you are under the legal age to be sharing personal data or making online purchases, or if you advise us that someone has unlawfully provided us with personal data, we will take steps to delete such information.

 

Any information you provide us is kept in strict confidence and, unless required by a legal authority, is not shared with anyone else. Rogue Blades utilizes online services by numerous providers (e.g., Wix.com, Web-Stat.com, Submittable.com, PayPal.com, Givebutter.org, etc.) who follow their own privacy policies when collecting information on our behalf and who may set cookies. These cookies allow their websites to recognize your computer and your preferences each time you access them. If you have registered an account with our web pages and enabled your notifications, you will receive email notifications of news updates on the site and we may occasionally send you an email newsletter containing special or important information.

Information Sharing

We will share your Personal Information if the new purpose is different from the original purpose but would not be considered materially different. Within such use, we may use and disclose your Personal Information as follows:
