The Foxhole Privacy Policy PDF Print E-mail


The Foxhole takes your right to privacy seriously, and wants you to feel comfortable using this web site. This privacy policy deals with personally-identifiable information (referred to as "data" below) that may be collected by The Foxhole. in this document, "The Foxhole" must be understood as the site you're currently reading and the forum that goes with it. Although the registration for the main site and the forum is a separated process, the current policy applies to both. This policy does not apply to other entities that are not owned or controlled by The Foxhole -- even when such a site is hosted on our server -- nor does it apply to persons that are not part of the staff or representatives of The Foxhole, or that are not under The Foxhole control. Please take time to read our Terms of use.

1. Collection of data

Registration for an account on The Foxhole or its forum requires only a valid e-mail address and a user name that have not been chosen already. You are not required to provide any other information if you do not want to. Please be aware that the user name you choose, the e-mail address you provide and any other information you enter may render you personally identifiable, and may possibly be displayed on this web site intentionally (depending on choices you make during the registration process, or depending on the way in which the site is configured) or unintentionally (subsequent to a successful act of intrusion by a third party). As on many web sites, The Foxhole representatives may also automatically receive general information that is contained in server log files, such as your IP address, and cookie information. Information about how advertising may be served on this site is set in section 3 of the present document.

2. Use of data

Data may be used to customize and improve your user experience on this site. Efforts will be made to prevent your data being made available to third parties unless (i) provided for otherwise in this Privacy Policy; (ii) your consent is obtained, such as when you choose to opt-in or opt-out for the sharing of data; (iii) a service provided on our site requires interaction with a third party, or is provided by a third party, such as an application service provider; (iv) pursuant to legal action or law enforcement; (v) it is found that your use of this site violates The Foxhole policy, terms of use, or other usage guidelines, or if it is deemed reasonably necessary by the site editor to protect the site editor's legal rights and/or property; or (vi) this site is purchased by a third party, in which case that third party will be able to use the data in the same manner as set forth in this policy.

As indicated in the introduction of this document, the present policy only applies to The Foxhole. In the event you choose to use links displayed on The Foxhole to visit other web sites, you are advised to read the privacy policies published on those sites.

3. Cookies

Like many web sites, The Foxhole sets and uses cookies to enhance your user experience -- to remember your personal settings, for instance. Advertisements may display on this web site and, if so, may set and access cookies on your computer; such cookies are subject to the privacy policy of the parties providing the advertisement. However, the parties providing the advertising do not have access to The Foxhole cookies. These parties usually use non-personally-identifiable or anonymous codes to obtain information about your visits to this site.You can visit the Network Advertising Initiative if you want to find out more information about this practice.

4. Minors

The Foxhole is primarily a gaming site dealing with content that may be occasionally unsuitable for minors below a certain age (harsh language, depiction of violence, reference to sex). Strictly speaking, there's no official rating for web sites like ours and The Foxhole is certainly not an adult site (pornographic and sexually explicit content is prohibited as per our Terms of use) so that puts us somewhere in the middle between teenagers and adults. Since we are a gaming site we chose to go with the ESRB system to define our age policy. Consequently The Foxhole does not allow minors who are aged sixteen or younger to become members of the site which correspond to the ESRB rating of Mature. For more information, please contact us.

5. Editing or deleting your account information

You are provided with the ability to edit the information stored for your user account information during registration, by visiting your details. You can request that your user account be deleted; to do so, please contact us. Content or other data that you may have provided, and that is not stored within your user account, such as articles published, may continue to remain on the site at the site editor's discretion, even after your user account is deleted. Please see the site's Terms of use for more information.

6. Changes to this privacy policy

Changes may be made to this policy from time to time. You will be notified of substantial changes to this policy either by through the posting of a prominent announcement on the site, and/or by a mail message sent to the e-mail address you have provided, which is stored within your user settings.


While this privacy policy states standards for maintenance of data, and while efforts will be made to meet the said standards, The Foxhole is not in a position to guarantee compliance with these standards. There may be factors beyond our control that may result in disclosure of data. Consequently, we offer no warranties or representations as regards maintenance or non-disclosure of data.

8. Contact information

If you have any questions about this policy or about this web site, please feel free to contact us.
