As part of the "Recruit-A-Friend" program, Firestorm may send emails to addresses outside its database. These addresses are never kept more than 24 hours, at the time of the request by the player until sending the mail to the address indicated by the player who is referring.

The Firestorm Support Team is the sole owner of the above information and only qualified members of the Firestorm Team can see it. The Firestorm team consults only this information for in-game support or technical assistance. A player's information is destroyed after 3 years of inactivity.
