Here at PokerRealMoney.com we respect your privacy and, although we don´t actually collect any personal information from visitors to this site, really felt that we ought to tell you what we do collect and what we do with it.
Apparently it is your responsibility to keep visiting this page from time to time to see when it was last updated and, because we don´t collect any personal information about you, it would be pretty difficult for us to tell you anyway!
Collection of Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Okay – it sounds like a pretty impressive headline, but all we do is place cookies on your computer, just like every other website you visit. Cookies are small text documents which includes an anonymous unique identifier which accelerates your navigation of our site.
There are two types of cookies – “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies. At this moment in time, we only use session cookies, and these delete automatically when you close your web browser. Persistent cookies are the ones which remember you log in details when you visit a site. As we do not require visitors to PokerRealMoney.com to create and account and log in, we don´t use them (but we reserve the right to change our mind in the future!).
There is nothing sinister about the cookies we use now or may use in the future, but if you want to find out more about them and how to delete them, click the link below which relates to your web browser:

Analytics and Stuff Like That
Because we are a business, we want to see what works and what doesn´t. We want to see where our visitors come from, what pages they read on our site and what they do afterwards. Consequently we use anonymous tools such as Google Analytics to record your visit to the site.
How these tools ensure anonymity is by deleting the last three digits of your IP address. So, if your IP address is 22.214.171.124 you live in Worthington on the north side of Columbus in Ohio. What we see is 22.222.22.xxx – so you could live anywhere around the north of Columbus – and that´s good enough information for us.
The analytic tools also track how you found PokerRealMoney.com (Google, Twitter, a poker news aggregation site like PokerScout etc), how long you spend on the site, what pages you look at the site, and where you go after visiting PokerRealMoney.com – or whether you end your browsing session one you have finished reading our content.
Third Party Advertising Cookies
From time to time a company will give us money to advertise on our site. Their adverts include third party advertising cookies so, if you click on the adverts, the company placing the advert will know that the visitor to their site has come from PokerRealMoney.com.
We have no control over these cookies, but assure you that they cannot be used as a personal identifier. The purpose of third party advertising cookies is to inform the advertiser whether it is worth their while to advertize on PokerRealMoney.com, and (hopefully) they will come back to us and offer us more money.
The only time you are ever asked to enter any personal information on this site is when you wish to leave a comment. The purpose of requesting your email address is to detect spam when we moderate the comments. We will never intentionally disclose your email address to anybody.
However, if you have been using the Internet for long enough, you will understand that it is not 100% secure. Despite all the precautions that we take, it might be possible that your email address becomes public and you get hit with a load of spam. We´re sorry about that, but it is something else that is out of our control.
Links to Third Party Websites
We often include links to third party websites in our news items and in our poker site reviews. If you click on them, you will be taken to a different website other than PokerRealMoney.com. These websites have their own privacy policies and, wherever possible, we only include links to websites that also value your privacy.
However, like we mentioned above, we cannot be held responsible for the content or privacy policies of websites we have no control over, so we recommend that you read their privacy policies as well before divulging any of your personal information.
