The following sets forth FightingArts.com's information
gathering and dissemination practices.
We are committed to your privacy and recognize that
as a visitor or member, you are our most important
asset. We will attempt to protect interests of the
participant of our community.
We do collect certain confidential information when
you sign up for our newsletter, enter contests or
promotional events, become a forum member, order from
our e-store, or participate in other activities. This
may include contact information, such as your email
address, name, telephone number, address and zip code.
We also may ask users voluntarily to give us certain
other information (such as martial arts practiced,
length of practice, style or organization, rank and/or
education level) in order to tailor information, articles
and services on the site to its users. We may use
contact information to contact the visitor when necessary,
or, when given permission, to send the user information,
promotions or other material from FightingArts.com
or its affiliates. Users may opt-out of receiving
Any general information collected from children under
age 15 is used only for statistical analysis, editorial
participation, feedback and e-mail Newsletter list
purposes. FightingArts.com does not give children's
personal information to third parties, regardless
of whether children choose to allow us to disseminate
their personal information for promotional opportunities.
This also includes information obtained from special
contests and/or promotional opportunities on our site.
Where children are allowed to participate in a contest,
our rules may require that they provide their parent
or guardian's e-mail address so that, if the child
wins, we can notify the parent or guardian. This policy
only applies, of course, for users who advise us that
they are under age 15.
Demographic and interests profile data is used to
tailor the visitors' experience at our site -- to
show them content that we think they might be interested
in, or to display the content according to their preferences.
This information may be shared with advertisers on
an aggregate basis. Specific visitor information,
however, is not made available to advertisers.
User Internet Provider (IP) information may be used
to help diagnose problems with our server and/or to
administer our site. Additionally your IP address
is used to help develop broad statistical demographic
and other information that is used internally and
may be shared with advertisers and other business
We also use an Internet technology called "cookies,"
which are small computer files sent to your computer
and later retrieved, to help track and measure patterns
of use, keep track of your shopping cart and to help
automate the log-in process for forum members. This
information helps us better correlate you wants and
needs with the content and services we provide for
Third party advertisements displayed on our site
may also contain cookies that are collected by the
third party advertisers, their ad agency, other third
parties or their representatives, and we do not have
access to this information. Please note that your

to purchase goods from our e-store. The order form
collects visitors' contact information and is used

order to process the transaction. We do not receive
or store credit card numbers on our server.
