We will not disclose this information without your consent (except for cases where you abuse the website or when the law requires it).

When you indicate this, we may you send emails and newsletters regarding YourTurnMyTurn.com and our activities. Those emails may contain commercial offers (of third parties).
Users may create only one (1) account for personal use. We will check on a regular basis whether there are users with multiple accounts. If you create multiple accounts you will be banned temporarily (and if we catch you several times, you will be banned permanently). You may create only 2 accounts per IP address (PC). By adding more accounts (without our permission), the most recently added accounts will be banned and deleted.

YourTurnMyTurn.com has the right to ban a user at any time when we suspect any kind of abuse of our site or services.
Use of computers, cheating, copying opponent, and rating misuse
It is considered unsporting to use a computer to determine your move. At the championships (see those rules) we monitor this heavily and if we have a strong reason to suspect you, you will be excluded from the championships. For all other board games this can be checked as well. If we repeatedly (after a warning as well) suspect someone of cheating, we can take a range of measures: rating correction, temporary or permanent ban, disallowing access to tournaments, etc. Copying moves of your opponent in duo-games, cross finales, and finales of tournaments or champion games is not allowed. If you do so, you will lose those board games. Every form of cheating where you win a board game not on your own is forbidden. YourTurnMyTurn.com has the right to ban those users or take other actions. Any form of misuse of your rating, like driving up your rating in an abnormal way is not allowed. After a warning you may be banned. This is considered to be the case when you play fast in board games you are winning and play extremely slow in board games you are losing.
You agree that you are personally responsible for your use of YourTurnMyTurn.com and all communications and actions you take on this website. This means for instance exonerating YourTurnMyTurn.com, its employees or third parties for damages resulting from your online behaviour or any content you have posted online. Online behaviour has to be based on common sense and basic etiquette. You violate our site rules if you (or someone else using your account) act in the following way: posting or sending, promoting, or distributing illegal content. Harassing, threatening, or humiliating other users is not allowed. This means: not disparaging another user, not sending unsolicited messages to other users, not making racist, discriminating, or other (nasty) judgments about race, sexual orientation, beliefs, background, etc. If you don't agree with an opinion of someone, please respond to the subject and not to the person. Distributing or helping to distribute content that is damaging, insulting, racist, vulgar, sexually oriented, or intruding on privacy in any form will not be tolerated. Slander will not be tolerated. Disrupting our chat or in-game messages with vulgar language, cursing or swearing, repeatedly using the same alphanumeric character, posting large images or texts, yelling (excessive use of upper case characters) or flooding (posting same message over and over again) is not allowed.
