Privacy & Security Notice
The Gamer’s Wharf knows that the privacy and security of your information is important to you. We appreciate that you trust us, and we want you to know how well we guard your privacy. By visiting our site, you accept the practices described in this notice.
What information about customers do we store?
- Information given to us by you - We keep all information you enter, such as name address, etc.
- "Cookies" on your computer - We store a “digital cookie” on your computer so we can keep track of your shopping card order when you are shopping with us. However, to protect your privacy, we don’t show any of your account information until you have entered the password you selected when you set up your account. If you, as a user of the site, choose to not accept cookies, this will not prevent you from shopping on our site. However, you won't be able to use the shopping cart. After choosing the items you wish to purchase, you can then either e-mail the order to us, or call us on the phone, or fax us with the list of items you wish to order.
- Information on current and past orders - We do store the contents of present and past orders on the website for your personal information. These are not accessible without entering the password you selected when you set up your account.
Who has access to your information?
On our site, only you or people you give your password to can access the information on our site. Our employees have access only to information needed to actually process an order for you, and they go through a rigorous screening process before becoming employed by our company. We do not sell our mailing list (or any information on it) to any other business. We may choose to mail you advertising or information on our products or the products or services of other companies, but we will never allow them access to your information or your name or address.
How secure is the information on the Web site?
All your private information is stored on the site using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts the information you input.

What information can I access?
You can access your account information, your wish list, the contents of your current shopping cart, and your willingness to be on our private e-mail mailing list.
Correction/Updating Personal Information
If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as your zip code), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user's personal data provided to us.
If you wish to remove yourself as a user, you must e-mail customer support with e-mail address, and give us the last 5 digits of your credit card number, and ask to be deleted. We will delete your registration within 2 business days.
