PHD is committed to protecting your privacy while visiting our web sites. Like many sites on the web, we collect a variety of information as you browse our sites. Some of the information we collect is non-personally identifiable information and some personally identifiable. These types of information are defined below and explanations are given as to how PHD uses that information.
Personally Identifiable Information
“Personally Identifiable Information” is information about a person that is readily identifiable to that specific individual. It includes, for example, an individual’s name, street address, e-mail address, or phone number. This type of information will not be collected unless you voluntarily submit it through email or submitting an online PHD form of some kind. An example of this would be to fill out and submit the Contact Us form.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Both personal and non-personal information, are used for internal purposes only. No information that we collect through the web site will be sold or shared with 3rd parties or unaffiliated groups.
When you create a retailer account with PHD, we will periodically send you email newsletters that contain new product information as it pertains to the gaming and hobby industry. If at any time you no longer desire to receive these gaming and hobby related updates, you may unsubscribe. There is usually a convenient unsubscribe link at the bottom of these emails.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
PHD does not share or sell any data to parties that are not owned or affiliated with PHD. Only a limited number of administrative and executive employees have access to collected web data.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. To update account info, users must contact PHD. Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
