User Information is gathered as part of any entry for a sweepstakes or other promotion. If you choose to enter a sweepstakes or other promotion we conduct, you will be required to submit certain personal information, such as your name, e-mail address, street address and phone number, and we will also ask for certain additional information, which is optional and is not required to enter the promotion.

HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
We use the Information you provide about yourself when registering and to provide you with information about other partner's similar products and promotions that may be of interest to you.

We do not share this information with non-partner companies.
We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive as well as to provide you with customer support, special promotions and offers.
In the course of growing or restructuring our business, we may purchase the assets of another company or sell the assets of our company. During these transactions, information about customers is frequently considered a business asset that is the subject of such a purchase or sale. Also, in the unlikely event that ScarletPoker.us, or substantially all of its assets are either acquired or subject to liquidation in bankruptcy, Information may be transferred as well.
ScarletPoker.us may contain hyperlinks to and from other Internet sites, including other partner sites. These sites may have different privacy practices from the ones described here.

This only occurs if your computer supports such technology. To protect your right not to provide us with this information, modern e-mail clients, such as Outlook 2003, only send this tracking information to us when you have enabled such a feature, as it is disabled by default, in your mail client tool options.

All information passes through Secure Socket Layer 3.0 technology to ensure your data is protected. The security of personal information you may submit in connection with a promotion entry, survey response, online facilities and/or registration for any feature on the Site is of the utmost concern to us, and we strive to ensure its security through encryption on our systems. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you transmit such information at your own risk.
