A web beacon is a single pixel image file that allows a website to count users who have visited that page or access certain cookies. These web beacons may be placed on specific pages across this website. When a visitor accesses these pages, a notice of that visit is generated which may be processed by us or by our vendors.

No spam, spyware or spoofing
We and our users do not tolerate spam. You are not licensed to add other PlayerUp users, even a user who has purchased from or sold to you, to your mail list (email or physical mail), or other contact without their express consent. To report PlayerUp related spam or spoof emails to PlayerUp, please forward the email to [email protected]. You may not use our communication tools to send spam or otherwise send content that would violate our User Agreement. We may filter and automatically scan messages before they are sent for viruses and other illegal or prohibited content. PlayerUp may, but is not obligated, to send you strictly service-related announcements on occasions when it is necessary to do so. For example, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email.
Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications since they are not promotional in nature and are necessary to maintain quality of service. If you do not wish to receive them, you may have the option to deactivate your account.
Your password is the key to your account. Use unique numbers, letters, and special characters and do not disclose your PlayerUp password to anyone. If you do share your password or your personal information with others, remember that you are responsible for all actions taken and financial commitments made in the name of your account. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately notify PlayerUp and change your password.
