- To process transactions, fulfill orders, and prevent transactional fraud.
- To send periodic emails.

How do we protect your information?
We use reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. Our website is scanned on a regular basis to detect and address security vulnerabilities. We regularly scan our site and systems for malware. We maintain personal data information on secured servers only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems and are contractually required to keep the information confidential. Sensitive data is encrypted. We maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of the personal data and information we collect by taking reasonable steps to release such information only to parties capable of maintaining its confidentiality and security (see “Do we share your information?” below). We retain the personal information we collect for only as long as is reasonably necessary to fulfill the purpose for which we collected the information. After that, we ensure that the collected personal information is deleted in a manner that safeguards against a security breach and protects against its unauthorized access or use, though it is possible your information may persist as residual copies or in our backup systems for some time after we have directed its deletion. We also use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol on your account information and registration pages to protect sensitive personal information. Financial transactions are processed through a certified back-end provider and are not stored or processed on our servers.
Do we use ‘cookies’?
If you disable cookies (turn them off), some features on our website may be disabled, and some of our services may not function properly. However, many site features may also remain available even if you disable cookies.
Do we share your information?
We do not sell or otherwise share your information with any third parties, except for the limited purposes described below.
Service Providers: The personal information we collect may be transferred, disclosed, or shared with services engaged by us to support our internal operations (such as payment processing or mail/e-mail distribution), and to perform other technical and processing functions (such as storing data, maintaining data integrity, programming operations, user services or technology services). We may provide these services information we collect as needed to perform their functions, but they are prohibited from using that information for other purposes, and they specifically agree to maintain the confidentiality of such information. Some of these providers, such as payment processors, may request additional information during the course of offering their services. Before you provide additional information to third party providers, we encourage you to review their privacy policies and information collection practices.
In-Site Communications Tools:
Our website includes various in-site communications tools (e.g., forums, comments, or chat). Please be aware that anyone may read postings on certain in-site communications tools. Any information which is posted to such in-site communications tools could include personal information, which would be disclosed and available to other users of that tool and would not therefore be private. Minehut cannot guarantee the security of information that any user discloses or communicates online in public areas. Those who do so, do so at their own risk. We reserve the right to monitor the content of our in-site communications tools. If age inappropriate material or potentially identifiable information is seen, it may be removed or edited by us for security, privacy and/or legal reasons. We will not republish postings from our in-site communications tools elsewhere on the Web.
Minehut and its staff and other representatives maintain accounts on various social media sites (e.g., Facebook and Twitter).
Minehut is wholly-owned by Super League Gaming, Inc. and the personal information we have collected may be transferred to that entity at any time. Additionally, in a bankruptcy or reorganization, such information may be considered an asset and may be transferred or sold.
How do I consent to and control your use of my personal information?
We strive to give you access to your personal information, and if that information is wrong, to allow you to update it easily or delete it (unless we’re required to keep that information for legitimate business or legal reasons). Should you wish to access or request deletion of any of the personal information you have provided us, please contact us at:
Minehut 2906 Colorado Ave. Santa Monica, CA 90404 USA firstname.lastname@example.org
We may reject requests for access or deletion of personal information if they are unreasonably repetitive, require unreasonable technical measures (such as changing our business practices or developing new functionality), put others’ privacy at risk, or would be unreasonably impractical. We will not charge you for accessing or correcting your personal information except if doing so would require unreasonable expense to us. Though we will do our best to honor your request to delete data, it is possible your information may persist as residual copies or in our backup systems for some time after we have received and acted upon your request.
Our commitment to children’s privacy:
Protecting the privacy of children is of paramount importance to us. We understand that users who are under 13 years of age need special safeguards and privacy protection. It is our intent to fully comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
