  • Privacy

    We know that privacy is important and we want you to be aware of our policies as to what information the site gathers and how this information is used.

    Membership Information

    To become a registered member of TrainSim.Com you must fill out a form with your name and your email address. Registered membership is only required if you wish to use the message forums and the file download library or any promotions we may run. Simply reading web page material on the site does not require you to become a registered member.

    Promotions

    Some promotions or contests may require supplying a physical mailing address. This is done so that we know where to ship the promotional prizes to the winners. No other use of mailing addresses is made, and mailing addresses are not supplied to outside parties except in cases where prizes are shipped directly by the company sponsoring the promotion.

    Data Logging

    We do not sell or share internally collected data to third parties. Data logs and statistics collected by the site's software is limited to diagnostic purposes and/or high level analysis on user experience and interface improvements.

    Cookies

    Cookies are used several ways, primarily to record your member login information. When you create an account and login to the file library or forums, your login details are recorded in a cookie. Unless you allow this cookie to be set on your computer you will be unable to download files or post messages.

    Some advertisements also employ cookies. See below for additional information about advertisements.

    Email Addresses

    Registered members are required to supply a valid email address to validate their accout and support password resets and other notifications.

    If you purchase an item offered for sale and download thru our Store, your email address may be provided to the seller if required for product support purposes.

    Advertising

    We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads to non-paying visitors to our site, which helps cover a small portion of our operating expenses. These companies may collect non-personally identifiable information about your visits to our and other web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. In addition, we may share aggregated high level web site usage information about visitors to our sites with these companies for the purpose of managing and targeting advertisements and for market research analysis on our site and other sites. In the course of serving advertisements to this site, our third-party advertisers may place or recognize a unique "cookie" on your computer.

    Paid members of the site will not see advertisements, nor will these third parties have access to any information about their visits. This includes First Class and FastPass members as well as purchasers of the Ad Free Pass. If you are concerned about access to your browsing activity, we encourage one of those paid options that block advertisements.

    Use of advertising blocker software is discouraged, and may negativity affect or restrict the ability to view some features of the site.

    IP Address

    For some transactions, your IP address may be logged. Every device connected to the Internet is assigned a number known as an Internet protocol (IP) address and can be used to identify the geographic region of the device accessing our site.

    If you purchase an item offered for sale and download thru our Store, your IP address may be provided to the seller if requested.

    Payment Card Information Compliance

    This site does not process payments or store any payment related information. All financial transactions are handled by third party processors, with payment card entry performed on their websites in accordance with relevant industry standards or government regulations.

    Cooperation with Legal and Law Enforcement Inquiries

    Information retained on this site will not be released to third parties unless we are obligated to do in the course of an investigation or allegation of copyright infringement.
