Country-specific content filtering on PokerStrategy.com
|Country-specific content filtering on PokerStrategy.com
PokerStrategy.com divides communities according to languages, which are each associated with a corresponding sub-domain (en.pokerstrategy.com = English, fr.pokerstrategy.com = French, etc.). A large number of the 19 available languages on PokerStrategy.com are spoken by populations in more than one judicial area (country).
These different judicial areas (countries) have varying legal restrictions in relation to online poker. In order to adhere to the legal situation in each country and to only show content relevant to you, your location is determined using your IP address and content is filtered accordingly. You can see which country your IP address has been allocated to by the country flag next to "country IP".
Saving and updating country settings for registered users
When you register at PokerStrategy.com, the country you are in at the time of registration is saved in your user profile. Saving this information means that you can access PokerStrategy.com in your preferred configuration even when travelling abroad. However, you can also adjust the settings according to the country you're in at any given time. In order to update your country configuration, please use the "update" button in the header (to the left of the country IP) or in the disclaimer. This function is only available if you are registered on PokerStrategy.com and your present country is different from the country saved at the time of your registration. Please note that once you update your country settings you cannot change them again until you leave the country in question and acquire a new country IP.
