Privacy policy

Overclockers Online is committed to protecting your online privacy while providing you with useful and enjoyable web content. While you can use many features of Overclockers Online anonymously, you are required to provide personal information to gain access to some of our content and services.

How we collect and use personal information

Registering for membership on Overclockers Online gives you access to all the site's information and features. With your approval, we occasionally will send e-mail to notify you about important changes to the site, new services, and special offers from us.

If you enter a contest or respond to a promotion, we may ask for your postal address, e-mail address and phone number so we can notify contest winners and deliver promotional goodies.

How we use "cookies"

"Cookies" are pieces of information stored on your computer's hard drive when you visit a site. Overclockers Online uses cookies to identify members so they don't have to enter a user ID and password upon each visit. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies but allow you to modify security settings so you can approve or reject cookies on a case-by-case basis. Even if you do not use cookies, you can still access our content.

What we provide to third parties

Overclockers Online does not provide any third-party access to your personal information without your permission. By entering our contests, our sponsors may collect your e-mail address for use in informing you of their latest promotions and products. We may provide third parties with aggregate statistics about our customers, traffic patterns, and related site information. This data reflects site usage patterns gathered during customer visits to our Web site, but it does not contain behavioral or identifying information about any individual member unless that member has given us permission to share that information.

Obtaining your consent

By using our Web site, you give Overclockers Online permission to collect information about the pages served to you as an anonymous user for the purpose of calculating aggregate site statistics. If you register at Overclockers Online, you authorize Overclockers Online to use information you provide to personalize the information we deliver to you and to use your demographic information when calculating aggregate customer data. As a registered member, you give Overclockers Online and our agents permission to send you e-mails related to the subscription e-mail services to which you subscribe.

If you are under the age of 18, you must not provide your name, e-mail address, or any other identifying information without the consent of your parent or guardian, or as otherwise provided for by applicable law.

Any changes to our privacy policy will be posted on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.
