Yeppers! Gaming’s mission is to provide a risk-free, fun site for social gaming enthusiasts. We invite all duly registered users (“Users”) to play in our tournaments (collectively, the “Service”). In connection with the Service, we collect certain personal information from registered users/applicants. This information may include personal information such as name, social security number, address, city, state, ZIP code, phone, and email address, as well as payment information required for disbursement purposes. This information is used for administrative purposes as well as legal compliance (including, but not limited to, notification to the IRS and similar taxing authorities).
Web beacons are small bits of code embedded in web pages or in emails. Web beacons may be used to deliver or communicate with cookies, to count users who have visited a web page and to understand usage patterns. Web beacons also may be included in emails to learn if messages have been opened, acted on or forwarded. You can disable the ability of web beacons to capture information in this manner by blocking cookies as described above under “Cookies.” Third party web beacons also may be used to help manage online advertising.
This Site supplements the information that you provide with information that is received from third parties.
We may use non-personally identifiable information collected on the Site to improve the quality of the Service and the Site, by, among other things, diagnosing service or technology problems, assessing and maintaining security, and offering personalized services, content, as well as for use in advertising, and market research. To the extent advertisements are used on the Site, Yeppers! Gaming uses information collected from registered Users to place ads where they believe interested parties will see them.
Yeppers! Gaming uses personally identifiable information to register with the Site, establish a public profile for registered Users of the Site in connection with the Services, and to coordinate the functions relating thereto. In addition, we may also share certain information about you with those of our vendors who are responsible for handling your account or performing other necessary services that you require. Although we may share sensitive financial information (i.e., credit card numbers, banking information), security information, and personal communications (e.g., personal e-mail messages or wall or forum postings) with such vendors where necessary and appropriate, we will not share such information with other third parties, except in response to formal requests (e.g., subpoena or court order) made in connection with litigation or arbitration proceedings directly relating to the services we provide.
When you submit information to Yeppers it is generally collected, processed and maintained solely by us. Sometimes we may allow partner companies to collect non-personally identifiable information about Users from us or other information directly from you (through their Web site). When Yeppers! Gaming is the source, it is usually so that we can provide a service with a partner. We choose to work with companies that we believe to be upstanding and that we believe will treat your information responsibly. But, since we don’t own these companies, we can’t speak for them on privacy issues. Before telling them about yourself, check out their privacy statements. If you are not satisfied with their information practices, you can choose to not use their service.
If you do not want us to share information about you with our business partners, you may send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include the word “privacy” in the subject line of the e-mail and all your registration information in the body of the e-mail. Yeppers! Gaming reserves the right to transfer, sell and/or distribute certain information collected on its site for any purpose, including, but not limited to, for satisfaction of any debt or upon liquidation of the company should such a situation arise. Yeppers! Gaming will not transfer, sell or distribute your social security number or banking or payment account information without your permission.
Yeppers! Gaming reserves the right to disclose User information from both private and public areas of the site at our discretion to anyone, if required by law or if given reason to believe, in our sole discretion, that someone is causing injury to or interference with the rights of Yeppers! Gaming members or the general public, or with Yeppers! Gaming’s rights of property.
During registration or thereafter you may be provided a choice whether to receive correspondence from either Yeppers! Gaming or its affiliates or partners and whether you want to participate in a variety of Yeppers! Gaming -sponsored programs or specials that may be offered from time to time. This information remains on your Profile where you can, at any point, easily edit it to indicate that you have changed your mind. If you purchase anything through Yeppers we may occasionally contact you with information about special events, sales, and activities. You always have the option to ask Yeppers! Gaming not to contact you with this information again. As for promotions, contests, submission opportunities and programs, you will not be included unless you opt-in.
If you receive unsolicited email from a Yeppers! Gaming domain, please contact us by writing us at email@example.com.
To preserve the integrity of our databases, standard procedure calls for us to retain information submitted by Users for an indefinite length of time. Yeppers! Gaming understands your submissions of any content or information on the Site as consent to store all your information in one place for this indefinite length of time, if we so wish. If required by law, as is the case to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), we will nullify member information by erasing it from our database. We will also respond to written member requests to nullify account information. If you wish to make such a request, which requires that we verify your identity, or if you have any questions regarding this policy, contact Yeppers! Gaming at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We have also made an effort to specifically limit Yeppers! Gaming’s appeal to people of age 18 and older. Yeppers! Gaming will not knowingly collect any information from children under 13.
If it comes to our attention that a User has revealed on Yeppers! Gaming that they are under 18, a member of Yeppers! Gaming’s staff will immediately close their account.
