APPLICATION OF THIS NOTICE
This notice applies only to the information collected by YouStake from the users of our Web
Site. It does not apply to information collected by YouStake in any other way.
THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Our Web Site tracks certain information about the visits to our Web Site. For example, we
compile statistics that show the numbers and frequency of visitors to our Web Site and its
individual pages. These aggregated statistics are used internally to improve our Web Site and
for product development and marketing purposes generally. Those aggregated statistics may
also be provided to advertisers and other third parties, but again, the statistics contain no
personal information and cannot be used to gather such information.
Our Web Site is not set up to automatically collect personally identifiable information from new
visitors to our Web Site. It does recognize the home server of new visitors. For example, we can
tell which Internet Service Provider our new visitors use, but not the names, addresses or other
information that would allow us to identify the particular visitors to our Web Site. Once a user
has visited the Web Site at least once, we may be able to match that user the next time he/she
visits the Web Site. Any information previously obtained, such as an email address provided at
registration, may be associated with that user but only if it were previously provided. This
information will be used by YouStake to provide a superior user experience and relevant
information and promotions.
We may also request information
from our users when they perform specific activities on the Web Site.

we typically ask for items such as your name, e-mail address,
phone number, address, product preference information, YouStake username and password, as
well as other similar personal information that is needed to register or subscribe you to services
or offers. On occasion, we may ask for additional information to enable us to provide you with
access to and use of certain information, materials and services. In the case of newsletters or
mailing lists, you will be able to "unsubscribe" to these mailings at any time.
