INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE.
At various locations on our Site, such as when you contact us, register or participate in promotions or Interactive Areas ("Interactive Areas" include chat rooms, bulletin boards, message boards or auditoriums, article or blog comment areas, SMS text messaging, mobile alerts, and mobile e-mail updates), we may request that you supply us with personal information (e.g., name, e-mail address, postal addresses, home, work and/or mobile telephone number, birth date and/or gender). We may also survey visitors about various topics, including local sporting teams, venues, events and experiences, television viewing preferences and how we can improve our Site and services. Response to our surveys is entirely voluntary. If you do not want your personal information collected, please do not submit it to us. When you do provide us with personal information, we may use that information to better understand your needs and how we can improve our Site, service offerings, products, and your user experience in order to provide you with news and information tailored to your specific interests and preferences. We may also use that information to contact you, for example, to answer a question or respond to a comment you have submitted, request feedback, distribute our newsletters, notify the winners of any promotions sponsored by us and allow participation in Interactive Areas. In addition, we may use your personal information to keep you up to date on special events and for communicating other information we think you would like to hear about.
Consistent with Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, we do not knowingly request or accept personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen (13) without prior written verifiable consent. If we learn that personally identifiable information of persons under thirteen (13) years of age has been collected on the Site, GameFace will take the appropriate steps to delete this information.
In some cases, when you visit our Site, we may also collect information that is non-personal information or information that, by itself, cannot be used to identify or contact you. Examples of this type of information include the type of Internet browser or computer operating system you use, demographic information (your age, gender, income, education, profession, zip code, etc.), the date and time you visited our Site, the pages you accessed, the name of the website from which you linked to our Site and other anonymous data involving your use of our Site. We also may ask for additional information (e.g., your favorite players and teams) which you have the option not to provide. This policy in no way restricts or limits our collection and use of aggregate information, and we may use and share this information, which is not linked to any personal information, to analyze trends, to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use and for marketing and promotional purposes.
Cookies, Web Beacons & Similar Technologies
We may use "cookies" - small pieces of data or text files that are stored on your computer tied to information about you - to collect information. Among other things, this information will help us enhance your experience on the Site. Cookies can store non-personal identifiable information, such as what websites, pages, or advertisements your browser has accessed and may be tied to the personal information you knowingly choose to provide to us. Cookies help establish a user session and allow our server to correctly provide Site users with the appropriate information, advertisements and services. Session cookies exist only for as long as your browser remains open. When the session ends, the browser is closed and the cookies go away. Persistent cookies, in contrast, last from visit to visit. Persistent cookies are saved on a visitor's computer by the browser and do not go away when you exit your browser. We may use both types of cookies to enable us to collect aggregate information on the usage patterns of our Site, such as what areas of the Site are most popular, so we can tailor our Site to user preferences.
Most Internet browsers can be set to refuse to accept cookies, although this may affect your Internet experience. You can also erase cookies that are already on your computer, block all cookies or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please refer to your browser instructions or "help" screen to learn more about these functions.
We may use "Web beacons" (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags, single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs, 1-by-1 GIFs, and Web bugs) - tiny graphic files placed on a Web page which send a signal when a user has visited that page - allowing the Site to collect standard access information, such as time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the Web beacon resides. We use Web beacons to help manage the effectiveness of our online advertising and to gather access information, such as counting the users who have visited those pages and compiling aggregated statistics about Site usage.
THIRD PARTY WEBSITES.
Our Site contains links to third party websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of those websites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Site and to read the privacy statements of every website that collects personally identifiable information. This Policy applies solely to information collected by our Site and does not cover information collected elsewhere.
Our Site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of information under our control. GameFace safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and other procedures. However, it is not possible to guarantee the security or integrity of information disclosed online. As no data transmission over the Internet is completely secure, we urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet.
All personal information you submit to us through the Site is encrypted with secure server software (SSL) that encodes the information before your Web browser software sends it to us. The SSL software decodes the data only after it reaches our server, meaning that your data will be encrypted were hackers to intercept it while in transit. Once the data reaches our server, your private account and customer information is located on a secure server behind a firewall. It is not directly connected to the Internet. Because no physical or electronic security is impenetrable, by using the Site, you agree to assume all risks in connection with the information sent to us or collected by us when using the Site. The data is then stored and maintained in our database and may be archived elsewhere. Our records are stored indefinitely, as are our archival backup copies, on systems that are only accessible by authorized employees of GameFace and our third-party vendors and partners.
Your account information and access to our Service is accessible only through the use of an individual user name and password. To protect the confidentiality of personal information, you must keep your password confidential and not disclose it to any other person. You are responsible for all uses of our Site by any person using your account user name and password. Please advise us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org if you believe your account user ID and password have been misused.

If you send us an e-mail with questions or comments, we may use the personal information you provide to respond to your questions or comments, and we may save your questions or comments for future reference. There may be times when you will have the opportunity to subscribe to an e-mail list or electronic newsletter that will send information about our Site. However, we will provide you with the option to change your preferences and "opt-out" of receiving those communications. You may request at any time that we not e-mail you in the future by clicking the "unsubscribe" link which is included at the bottom of any e-mail communication that you receive from us and hitting send, or by contracting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. When contacting us by e-mail, please insert "UNSUBSCRIBE" in the subject line and the body of the message. If you unsubscribe, you should assume that your request has been received and is being processed. Please allow ten (10) business days from when the request was received to complete the removal of your e-mail address from our database as some of our promotions may have been in process before submitting such request we will make reasonable efforts to discontinue these e-mail communications as soon as practicable.
CERTAIN THIRD PARTY TRANSACTIONS.
GameFace may disclose personal information to our affiliates, subsidiaries, partners, contractors and permitted agents who assist us in providing services in connection with this Site and our business. In addition, we also allow access to our database by third parties we engage to assist us in providing you certain services. For example, we may hire a company to help us with technical maintenance. We may also use a third party to facilitate our online services, fulfill orders, process payments or conduct surveys on our behalf. In these instances, we may need to share your personal information. We require these companies use your personal information only to provide that particular product or service and do not authorize them to use your personal information for any other reason. In addition, if some or all of the assets of our business are sold to a third party, such third party will be entitled to use the information disclosed by users of our Site. Both the personal and non-personal information that we or other third parties have collected may be transferred as part of the transaction.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose information as required by law, rule or regulation or where we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to protect its rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, as requested by a governmental or law enforcement authority or other legal process. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. In addition, we reserve the right to use or disclose non-personal information in any way we see fit.
