When players sign up for an account on A Virtual Horse they are asked for some basic information such as a valid e-mail, gender and birth date.
This information is accessible only by the game owners and is strictly confidential. It is used only for statistical data and understanding who our player base is and what they use and like on the game, for account specific settings and site security.
The valid e-mail eliminates random, automatic and spam sign-ups that are not truly intending to play the game.
It also gives you the means to e-mail problems directly to the game and a place for the game to send you any relevant information about your account. It is not used for any other purpose.
The birth date enables us to make sure that the younger players are just as secure on our site as possible. We have all ages that play the game ranging from about 10 years old up through adults.
It may not be suitable for younger players to have access to private messaging or the live chat.
If parents do not wish to have that accessible for their child we can use the birth date to turn features off for that specific account.
If you choose to provide a valid e-mail account upon sign up and validate the e-mail through the game's validation process you are giving approval for use of the game mail system and access to the forums, blogs and live chat which come automatically with a verified account.
This access can be changed at any time by the parent's request to turn certain features of the account off for your child.
