• 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.


    Some promotions may require that in addition to being a registered member you must supply 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.


    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 their email address. This is for internal use only and is not supplied to any outside parties.


    We use several third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our site. This company may use 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 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. For these purposes, we and our third-party advertising companies may note some of the pages you visit on our site through the use of pixel tags (also called clear gifs). In the course of serving advertisements to this site, our third-party advertisers may place or recognize a unique "cookie" on your computer.

    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.

    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.
