We find that your actions on our Web sites violate the Blaze 2 Blizzard Terms of Service, or any of our usage guidelines for specific products or services.

If you have questions or suggestions complete a feedback form on our contact us page.
IP Information Collection and Use Practices
Blaze 2 Blizzard receives IP addresses from all users because this information is automatically reported by your browser each time you view a Web page.
Your IP address is also stored in our user registration databaes when you register with Blaze 2 Blizzard.
When a Blaze 2 Blizzard Web page is requested and viewed, that request is logged on our servers with information including the IP address of the computer that requested the page.
IP addresses may be used for various purposes, including to:
Diagnose service or technology problems reported by our users or engineers that are associated with the IP addresses controlled by a specific Web company or ISP.
Send the most appropriate advertising based on geographic area or information derived from your IP address. Many IP addresses are commonly associated with Internet service providers, universities, or major corporations in specific regions or localities. Aggregate information derived from IP addresses may also be reported to advertisers.
Estimate the total number of users visiting Blaze 2 Blizzard from specific countries or regions of the world.
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, that is sent to your browser from a Web site's computers and stored on your computer's hard drive. Each Web site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (toprotect your privacy) your browser only permits a Web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
Choices About Cookies
You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. (Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.)
If you reject all cookies, you will not be able to use Blaze 2 Blizzard products or services that require you to "sign in," and you may not be able to take full advantage of all offerings. However, many Blaze 2 Blizzard products and services do not require that you accept cookies.
Practices Regarding Cookies
Blaze 2 Blizzard uses its own cookies for a number of purposes, including to:
Access your information when you "sign in," so that we can provide you with customized content.
Keep track of preferences you specify while you are using Blaze 2 Blizzard's services.
Display the most appropriate advertising banners, based on your interests and activity on Blaze 2 Blizzard.
Estimate and report our total audience size and traffic.
Conduct research to improve Blaze 2 Blizzard's content and services.
Require you to re-enter your Blaze 2 Blizzard password after a certain period of time has elapsed to protect you against others accidentally accessing your account contents.
When you register with Blaze 2 Blizzard or submit information to Blaze 2 Blizzard, a temporary copy of that information is routinely made to prevent accidental loss of your information through a computer malfunction or human error.
Blaze 2 Blizzard keeps your account information active in our user registration databases in order to provide immediate access to your personalization preferences each time you visit Blaze 2 Blizzard.
If you ask Blaze 2 Blizzard to delete your Blaze 2 Blizzard account, in most cases your account will be deactivated and then deleted from our user registration database in approximately 90 days. This delay is necessary to discourage users from engaging in fraudulent activity.
Please note that any information that we have copied may remain in back-up storage for some period of time after your deletion request. This may be the case even though no information about your account remains in our active user databases.
The Blaze 2 Blizzard computers (called "servers") that send your Web pages and advertising banners process and store an enormous amount of information every day. These computer records are called "log files."
Log files are used for analysis, research, auditing, and other purposes, as described above. After this information has been used, it is stored and is inaccessible. Until the information is stored, your Blaze 2 Blizzard ID may remain in our active server log files.
If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of this site, or your dealings with this Web site, you can contact us.
