Collection of Information
The only information collected by the company is non-identifiable (i.e. anonymous). We are cannot identify a user or a user’s personal information from the data collected. This data is primarily collected through the use of third-party analytical cookies, such as Google Analytics, to help improve the quality of our services and maintain a high-quality user experience. This type of information is quite generic; for example, the amount of pages viewed, the device/browser used, time on site, etc. Given the anonymous nature of this information, the use and disclosure of this information are subject to no restrictions and may be disclosed at any time.
Our site uses industry-standard HTTPS encryption to ensure user security & privacy when browsing our services.
Cookies are small text files that websites place on your device as you are browsing. They are processed and stored by your web browser. In and of themselves, cookies are harmless and serve crucial functions for websites. Cookies can also generally be easily viewed and deleted within your browser. Third-party cookies are those set by our trusted partner websites – such as the aforementioned Google Analytics. These cookies simply measure your access to, and interactions with, our site.
Our site uses a few different categories of cookies:
- Session cookies are cookies that are stored only during your session on the site. These types of cookies allow the site to remember your preferences as you navigate between pages, ensuring you do not have to re-authenticate or re-process each new area, where possible.
- Persistent cookies remain for a fixed period of time (typically no longer than 30 days) or until they are manually deleted. On our site, we use these cookies to remember whether you have accepted or dismissed certain notifications so they aren’t shown to you repeatedly; and to remember what country you are in so we can display relevant content.
Remember, when it comes to cookies and your privacy, you are in control at all times. You can delete or block cookies at any time using your browser. However, please keep in mind that the disabling of certain cookies – such as those that allow for us to provide relevant content based on your location – may lead to a limited experience.
Poker is a form of entertainment. TightPoker.com and its writers recommend that our readers play poker and gamble responsibly when they are of legal age and sound mind. Our services are in no way intended for users under the age of 18.
It is important to note that our site is for informational and entertainment purposes only and does not directly offer or solicit gambling. While the members of our content team are experts in various aspects of the poker industry, we should not be considered legal experts. Our articles are subject to our editorial guidelines, well-researched, and based on the most current information available, but we do not claim any standing in a court of law.
Online poker is a complicated legal subject. The laws of one jurisdiction can be markedly different from even those of a directly bordering jurisdiction. Some countries treat poker as gambling, while others view it as a distinct game for legal purposes. Further, some regions make running an online poker room illegal but do not criminalize the act of playing online poker. Due to that complexity, it is beyond our ability to anticipate the legal implications of playing online poker for all of our visitors. We strongly encourage users of our site to verify the legality of online poker with regard to their local law.
If online poker is illegal in your country, state, or region, your use of this site is strictly restricted to entertainment purposes. If you have questions about the legality of any activity, you should always first seek qualified legal advice and never rely solely on the use of commercial websites.
How We Rate Online Poker Rooms
Our ratings of online poker rooms are based on a number of independent aspects of each poker site. We assign specific grades to rooms on factors like banking and game selection so that players can immediately get a basic sense of how one room stacks up against the overall competition. What we don’t do is pad our reviews with useless and outdated information. We base our reviews on a variety of information, including direct experience playing at the room, industry statistics, aggregate play data, and surveys of other online poker players. Our ratings are therefore very dynamic and change on a regular basis as new information about the rooms impacts their rating (for better or for worse).
We also appreciate that not all factors matter equally to all players – a Mac-compatible US-based poker room is obviously very important to someone who owns a Mac in, say New Jersey, but is more or less irrelevant to someone running Windows in Canada. Our general approach is to give you as many relevant facts about the room as possible so that you have the tools to evaluate how good of a fit a room is likely to be for you.
TightPoker.com does not operate a poker room or a gambling site of any sort. This site earns revenue through affiliate commissions based on signups to various poker rooms. Operators can’t buy their spot nor do we promote sites based on the number of commissions received. The intent of our content is to provide you with the best resource for online poker. Advertising comes second.
