OUR COMMITMENT TO PRIVACY

This Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy” or “Policy”) sets forth the information privacy practices of SideLeague LLC (“SideLeague,” “we” or “us”) in connection with your use of mobile applications provided by SideLeague (the “Application” or “Applications”). All Applications that are governed by this Privacy Policy will include a link to, and/or copy of this Privacy Policy on a settings page in the Application, and this Privacy Policy will be presented to users when they download an Application.

SideLeague respects your privacy and is committed to ensuring that your personal information is protected. This Policy discloses the information we gather through the Application, the ways we process, share and secure such information and how you can correct or change it. Except where otherwise expressly indicated herein or on the Application, this Policy applies only to information collected through the Application and does not apply to information collected outside of the Application.

This Policy addresses our privacy practices relating to the use of our Application by anyone who uses and/or downloads the Application and/or visits, browses or otherwise uses the Site (collectively, "you" or “user”). Before submitting information to the Application, please read this Policy. By using the Application, submitting information or using any of SideLeague’s products or Applications, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Policy and consent to having your data transferred to and/or processed in the United States. If you do not agree to this Policy, you are not permitted to use the Application.

THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

The Application is intended to allow you to enter SideLeague contests without requiring you to submit any more information than is necessary to use the Application effectively. We collect the following three categories of information from you: (a) Personally Identifiable Information; (b) Non-Personal Information; and (c) Passive Anonymous Information. In this Policy, all three of these categories are collectively referred to as “Information.”

Personally Identifiable Information Collected from Individuals

We may receive and store any information you enter through the Application that would allow us to identify you personally or contact you. This information is referred to as Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”). The PII you provide to us only will be used by SideLeague in accordance with this Policy. Examples of PII we may collect from you:

  • Your first and last name, email address and user name, including information collected when you connect your Facebook account;
  • Your billing information necessary to participate in contests;
  • PII you provide about yourself when you send us an e-mail or Contact Support.

Non-Personal Information

From time to time, we may also ask you to provide us with non-personal information which is data that alone is not intended to allow us to identify you personally, such as just your first name, birthday, zip code, demographic information, or game play data, including without limitation history of contests you have entered using the Application. Sometimes SideLeague will aggregate and/or anonymize PII so that it becomes non-personal information and is not intended to be used to personally identify you.

Passive Anonymous Information Gathered Electronically

We may automatically collect certain types of passive, anonymous information whenever you use the Application, such as information about your device, your computer, and online activities. For instance, we may automatically collect usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of users of the Application and similar data. This data is used in the aggregate, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that is intended to identify you personally.

If we collect this information, it will be done passively through the use of certain electronic technologies and location information from your wireless device as explained below.

Device Information: You can use your wireless device to obtain the Application or various third party products and Applications, such as mobile applications that may be purchased or free through third party marketplaces, like the Apple iTunes store and Google Play App store. The Application and these third party applications may provide additional functionality by using the location of your wireless device, your mobile device identifier IP address, operating system, and Application usage information. For any products or Applications provided by SideLeague in which wireless location will be used, you will receive prior notice and you must consent before your wireless device location is used and/or shared.

SideLeague uses location data to determine whether you are eligible to participate in SideLeague contests and to determine if SideLeague is offering location-specific contests near you, if you do not allow SideLeague to access this information for this purpose, you may not be able to enter SideLeague contests.

Any wireless device location that is used in connection with a third party Application or product will be governed by that third party’s terms and privacy policy. You agree that SideLeague is not responsible for any third party use or sharing of your wireless device location information.

HOW WE USE INFORMATION

We may use your Information for a number of purposes, including:

  • To allow you to use the Application and to administer your account;
  • To facilitate communication between SideLeague and you including, without limitation, responding to your questions or comments, sending e-mails concerning our products and Applications, or to contact you for feedback regarding us or business partners;
