Privacy Policy


OptimalSWAT is committed to protecting the privacy of its visitors. The privacy statement provides our visitors with an overview of the measures we have taken to show our commitment to this privacy. We respect your privacy. Any personal information requested from you will never be used, sold, or in any other way distributed to third parties. Both members' and guests' IP address are stored for the sole purpose of security and moderation. Your IP address is only available to Administrators and will never be given out. In addition, your e-mail address is also stored on the website. Your e-mail address will be added to the OptimalSWAT mail list automatically when you register, unless you choose otherwise. If you wish to unsubscribe from our mailing list, go to your User Control Panel, click on Edit Options, and uncheck the "Receive Email from Administrators" field. Also, you may wish to receive e-mails from other forum members. If you wish to enable this feature, check the "Receive Email from Other Members" field. Your e-mail address will never be given out, sold to, or distributed in any means to any third parties. By using this website, you also agree to allow the Administration access to edit your information, view your information (including private fields, but excluding passwords), and edit your postings made on the forums. In addition, the Administration has access to view your Private Messages, should there be any reason to do so.

Details regarding our privacy policy are as follows:

Personal Information

By registering with us, you might be submitting personal information to the website. This information is kept private and is not released to any outside parties. Upon request, information will be given to authorities should the need arise. Information that might be collected includes, but is not limited to, e-mail address and date of birth. Optional information, given at the user's discretion, may include, but is not limited to, location, first name, and instant messenger contact information. All information may be displayed publicly unless the user specifically requests otherwise. The display of this information can be toggled in the User Control Panel.

Opting Out

Users who join the forum will periodically receive newsletters and other e-mail sent by the Administration. Should users later decide to opt-out from receiving this information, the option to be taken off our mailing list is found in the User Control Panel. Click on "Edit Options" and uncheck the "Receive emails from Administrators" box. Hit the submit button and you will be automatically taken off our mailing list. Should you choose to be put back on, simply re-check the box. Furthermore, users have the option of disabling this at registration, and they will never receive any e-mails from the Administration. By opting out of our mailing list, this does not stop the use of automatic e-mails. For example, a user opted out of our mailing list may still receive e-mail upon receiving a Private Message. These e-mails are automated and not sent by the Administration. The options to opt-out of these types of e-mails can also be found in the User Control Panel.


Any information submitted to the website (including, but not limited to, date of birth) is assumed accurate. If the information submitted is not correct, please contact the Administration and provide the correct details. Changes will be made promptly.
