    Protecting your privacy is very important to us. We want you to understand what information we collect and how we use it. We collect and use both public and nonpublic personal information in order to provide our users with a broad range of content and services. We treat your information with the utmost respect and in accordance with our Privacy Policy. We give transparency as to what information we collect and it can be modified or corrected at any time. If you have questions about this policy, how we collect or process your personal data, or anything else related to our privacy practices, we want to hear from you. You can contact us at any time by discord or email us at valzargaming@gmail.com at any time.

    When you use our website we receive some personal information from you like the type of device you’re using and your IP address. We require certain information to provide our services to you.

We may use third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor and analyze this type of information in order to increase our Service’s functionality. These third party service providers have their own privacy policies addressing how they use such information.

    Your Content
    In certain areas of the website, you can choose to upload content that will be publicly displayed. Please be thoughtful when choosing to do so, since content available online is easily shared and captured. If you choose to share content on the website, you warrant and represent that you are the owner of the content or you are permitted to use the content in such manner. You may not post any content to the website that you do not own or are not permitted to use. ValZarGaming respects the intellectual property rights of others and expects you to do the same.

ValZarGaming will review all content submitted prior to public posting on the website. If approved, the content will be posted within a reasonable timeframe. ValZarGaming may refuse to post any content for any reason whatsoever. For example, ValZarGaming may not approve content that contains offensive language, is not relevant to the original post, or is a commercial endorsement. Also, ValZarGaming may remove any content for any reason whatsoever. This means that even if your content was initially approved by ValZarGaming, ValZarGaming may remove it at a later date. If you choose to upload content to the website, you agree to indemnify and hold ValZarGaming harmless from any and all liability, damages or expenses whatsoever due, directly or indirectly, to any cause of action arising out of any content posted by you. Other services we provide may have additional rules and regulations that are specific to that particular service and will be accessible to you in such sections. This same policy also extends to our other services and communities wherever applicable unless otherwise stated such as our officially affiliated Discord guild, hosted servers, databases, chat services, and data transport technologies.
