Policies, Information, and Legal Notices
World of Warcraft - familiarly known as WoW - was created by Blizzard Entertainment, which, as far as we know, retains any and all intellectual property rights to the game and its various components. Horde Help's use of names of characters and objects and other information derived from the game is not intended to detract from Blizzard's rights in any way.
However, the compilation, arrangement, and presentation of information on Horde Help; the opinions, analysis, and commentary on our site; and the code underlying the appearance of the site are the work of Jon Freeman, and all of it is copyright © 2008-2011 by Free Fall Games. You are welcome - indeed, encouraged - to link to any part of any page on the site, but please do not copy or use extensive portions of our material without our express permission.
Send questions or comments to hordehelp [at] freefallgames.com. You may, for better or worse, get a personal response. If it's something of general interest, it may prompt a new page or section of Horde Help.
We despise spam and support the death penalty for spammers. (Seriously.) We won't spam you, and if you contact us for any reason, we won't add your email address to mailing lists or sell it to spammers.
We - meaning Horde Help and Free Fall Games - believe your virtual travels are a private matter. We haven't the slightest urge to spy on you. We don't want your credit card numbers, and we don't make you "sign in" before you can read our pages. We don't care where you came from or where you go. (We're not sales or marketing people, and we seem to lack the snooping gene. We wouldn't rummage through your desk drawers or your medicine cabinet, either.)
Advertisers have a somewhat different perspective, however. To measure the effectiveness of their ads and to ensure that the appropriate parties are being properly credited when ads are clicked, advertisers generally use what are called tracking cookies.
In the near future we intend to add advertising to our site. We intend to use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, we will provide a link like this one.
We would like to discourage anyone from violating World of Warcraft's Terms of Service - the ToS. Doing so could cause the suspension of your account and is a bad idea for many reasons.
WoW's ToS prohibits the buying and selling of ingame items or game gold with real-world money, and we don't much like the idea, either. Ingame spam is as obnoxious as any other kind; gold farmers interfere with questing and the normal acquisition of game materials; and people trying to sell you gold aren't always - or often - honest. They're likely to take your money - and your credit-card information - and give you nothing in return except a month of headaches. If - or when - they rip you off, who are you going to complain to? Blizzard? The State Department? Please.
Only teens seem to be dumb enough to consider so-called power-leveling services, which are also contrary to the ToS. Paying someone to play a game you're already paying to play is such a dopey idea it was lampooned in the comic strip Fox Trot. If you don't enjoy playing the game, what's the point? Aside from the absurdity of the idea, all too often such "services" take your money, sell off every item from every character in your account, and loot your guild bank, too - leaving you with no gear, no gold, a bad rep, and a suspended account. This may not be the stupidest idea in the history of mankind, but it's close.©2008 Free Fall Games | CONTACT US | POLICIES | PRIVACY
