What type of communications may I receive?
Special Offers and Updates
Ready At Dawn may occasionally send you information on products, services, special deals, and promotions. Out of respect for your privacy, we present the option not to receive these types of communications. Please see the section captioned “What choices do I have regarding the collection, and distribution of my personal information?”
We may send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email. Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature.
Based upon the personally identifiable information you provide Ready At Dawn, we may send you a welcoming email to verify your username and password. We may also communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account. We will communicate with you by email or telephone, in accordance with your wishes.
Friend Referral Program
If you choose to use our friend referral program, Ready At Dawn will ask you for your friend’s name and email address. Ready At Dawn will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the website. Ready At Dawn does not store this information and uses it for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and to track the success of our referral program.
Who is collecting your information?
When you are asked for information while on a Ready At Dawn website, you are sharing that information with Ready At Dawn, its parent, and its various affiliates and sister companies, unless specifically stated otherwise. As a result of this sharing, you may receive communications from any of Ready At Dawn’s affiliates. From time to time, Ready At Dawn may use third party contractors to collect and process personal information on its behalf (for product and prize fulfillment, credit card processing, etc.).
In addition, some services are provided in conjunction with partner companies. If your personal information is being collected by a company other than Ready At Dawn and not on Ready At Dawn’s behalf, you will be notified at the time the information is collected. If you do not want your information shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer of information by not using that particular service or by not providing any information at that time.
With whom may your personal information be
We reserve the right to disclose your personal information as required by law or in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing such information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against you if you are violating the Terms of Service, Use Agreements or End User License Agreements for a Ready At Dawn website or product, or may be causing injury to or interference (intentionally or unintentionally) with Ready At Dawn’s rights or property, other users of a Ready At Dawn or licensed partner or platform website or product, or anyone else who could be harmed by your activities. We also reserve the right to disclose your personal information if we have a good faith belief that it is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activities.
As with any business, your personal information is also an asset of Ready At Dawn and will become part of our normal business records. As such, we may also disclose your personal information to a third party if we decide to sell a line of business to that third party, so you can continue to receive service and information in connection with that line of business with as little disruption as possible. Similarly, in the event of a merger, acquisition, reorganization, bankruptcy, or other similar event, your personal information may be transferred to Ready At Dawn’s successor or assign. Ready At Dawn websites may also have message boards, forums, and/or chat areas, where users can exchange ideas and communicate with one another. When posting to a message board, forum, or chat area, please be aware that the information is being made publicly available on-line and the user does so at his or her own risk. For certain forums, anyone posting or replying to a post may be doing so using their full first and last name — with the option to also display the name of their primary in-game character. If your personal information is posted on one of our community forums, you may contact Ready At Dawn at [email protected] to request removal. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personal information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.
What choices do I have regarding the collection, and distribution of my personal information?
Ready At Dawn allows you to control the way that Ready At Dawn uses personal identifying information that Ready At Dawn might obtain. At the time you provide personal information, Ready At Dawn may give you the option of declining any future offers or information about new products, promotions, or services. In addition, many of the “mailings” Ready At Dawn may send you, such as newsletters, have procedures within them to cancel the receipt of any future mailings. Lastly, you may be given the opportunity to “opt-out” of certain features or functionality with instructions how to do so.

What are tracking technologies and how are
As is true with most web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve the services we offer you, to improve marketing, analytics, or website functionality.
Ready At Dawn and our partners, such as marketing partners and analytics providers, may use tracking technologies such as cookies, beacons, tags and scripts. These technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the websites, tracking users’ movements around the websites, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual as well aggregated basis.
Ready At Dawn may also use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let it know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows Ready At Dawn to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of its marketing campaigns. For this reason, these types of clear gifs are tied to personally identifiable information.
Ready At Dawn, and third parties with whom it partners to provide certain features on its websites or to display advertising based on your web browsing activity, use Local Shared Objects such as Flash cookies, and Local Storage such as HTML5, to store content information and preferences.

What are Internet protocol addresses?
An Internet protocol (“IP”) address is the unique number assigned to your server or Internet Service Provider (“ISP”). Ready At Dawn may track such IP addresses for system administration, to report aggregate information, site tracking, security purposes, or to prevent our servers from being abused. See tracking technology discussion in the preceding section.
What do I do if I want to correct or delete my personal information?
In some cases, Ready At Dawn may not be able to delete your personal information and will retain and use the information obtained as long as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and/or enforce the Ready At Dawn agreements.
Please note that the deletion of your data will lead to the termination of your account and all applicable games and/or services.
How secure is my personal information?
The security of your personal information is important to Ready At Dawn. Ready At Dawn has taken steps to assure that all information collected will remain secure and in its original form (i.e. free from any alteration).
