POP.Games uses email as the main method of contact with its users. When signing up to become a member of POP.Games, the user must agree to accept and cannot unsubscribe from non-promotional emails (e.g. emails containing invoices, support correspondence and subscription information).
These emails are transactional emails and usually occur each time an action is triggered on the site:
– password change
– password reminder
– internal messages from other users
POP.Games also sends newsletters, periodically. Subscribing to the newsletters is optional and free for all users. POP.Games newsletters contain new site games and top members. Occasionally POP.Games sends promotional newsletters on behalf of our customers. Your personal information is NOT shared to any third party without your prior consent.
Additional information collected for each sent newsletter is:
– number of newsletter opens
– number of clicks on each link inside a newsletter
Subscribe / Unsubscribe methodology for POP.Games promotional newsletters
Each newsletter subscription needs to be confirmed. The confirmation (double opt in) is done by sending an initial greeting email, where a user action is needed to confirm the subscription, by clicking the unique personalized confirmation link. This way we ensure that the user agrees upon joining the newsletter list, and that the email addresses are real.
Each newsletter received has clear information about the sender and unsubscribe methods. The unsubscribe is fulfilled within seconds after clicking the unsubscribe link and no further newsletters will be sent to the users who have stated that they do not wish to receive the specified information, unless they choose to register to the newsletter again.
