In the course of using the Sites, such as when you sign up to access content or receive updates and other email communications from us through the Sites, we may seek to collect from you various forms of Personal Information from you, such as: name, address, e-mail address and other basic demographic or other information about you.
By providing us with your email address and other contact information, you acknowledge and agree that we may use your contact information to send you information about our Sites, and you expressly consent to receiving email communications from us. You may unsubscribe from marketing and promotional messages by emailing us at [email protected], or clicking on the “unsubscribe” link contained in any such email correspondence, although regardless of if you “unsubscribe”, we reserve the right to contact you when we believe it is necessary.
We, and our constituents or affiliates, who include athletes and/or representatives, third party service providers, advertisers, advertising networks and platforms, agencies, and distribution or other partners may use automated means to collect various types of Information about you, your computer or other devices used to access the Sites. A representative, non-exhaustive list of the types of automatically collected information may include: network or Internet protocol address and type of browser you are using (e.g., Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc), the type of operating system you are using, (e.g., Microsoft Windows or Mac OS), the name of your Internet service provider (e.g., Comcast, Verizon, AT&T, etc.) and domains used by such providers, mobile network, device identifiers (such as an Apple IDFA or an Android Advertising ID), device settings, browser settings, the web pages of the Sites you have visited, the type of handheld or mobile device used to view the Sites (e.g., iOS, Android), location information, and the content and advertisements you have accessed, seen, forwarded and/or clicked on.
If you are accessing the Sites from a mobile device or through a mobile application, you may be asked to share your precise (GPS level) geo-location information with us so we can customize your experience on the Sites, when we work with a Partner such as a third party mobile ad platform. If you agree to such collection, in most cases, you will be able to turn off such data collection at any time by accessing the privacy settings of your mobile device and/or through the settings in the applicable mobile application.
When we interact with you through our content on third party websites, applications, integrations or platforms, we may obtain any information regarding your interaction with that content.
We, along with our constinutents, affiliates and/or partners, may use the collected information to:
Additionally, we may combine any of the information we collect, for any of the above purposes, and may sometimes enhance that information with other information that we obtain from third party sources. Please also be aware that if you choose to submit information or content for publication (e.g., engagements, comments, a post to a blog or a discussion board, a video or audio clip, etc.), we may publish that information and content, along with other information about you (such as, but not limited to, your name, screen name or location).
We may disclose the information we collect from you as follows:
Further, we may work with our constituents, affiliates, partners, or third party service providers (for instance, ad platforms) to synchronize unique, anonymous identifiers (such as those associated with cookies) in order to match their uniquely coded user identifiers to our own. We may do this, for instance, to optimize or enhance data points about a particular browser or device, and thus enable us or others to send ads that are more relevant, and/or match users to their likely product interests, or better synchronize, cap, or optimize advertising.
The Site may employ locally stored objects (“LSOs”) and other client side storage tracking technologies in certain situations where they help to provide a better user experience, such as to remember settings, preferences and usage similar to browser cookies, or in order to target or help our affiliates or partners target ads, analyze ad performance, or perform user, website or market analytics.
We may work with certain third party service providers that use techniques other than HTTP cookies to recognize your computer or device and/or to collect and record information about your internet activity, including those integrated with our Sites. Please keep in mind that your web browser may not permit you to block the use of these techniques, and those browser settings that block conventional cookies may have no effect on such techniques.
At this time, the Sites do not recognize automated browser signals regarding tracking mechanisms, which may include “do not track” instructions.
We and our Partners may also use "web beacons" or clear GIFs, or similar technologies, which are small pieces of code placed on the Site or in an email, to monitor the behavior and collect data about the visitors viewing the Site or email. For example, web beacons may be used to count the users who visit a web page or to deliver a cookie to the browser of a visitor viewing that the Site. Web beacons may also be used to provide information on the effectiveness of our email campaigns (e.g., open rates, clicks, forwards, etc.).
We also may use, or our constituents, affiliates or partner with publishers, publisher-facing, or app developer platforms that use mobile Software Development Kits (“SDKs”), or use an SDK with a mobile app that we offer, to collect Information, such as mobile identifiers (e.g., IDFAs and Android Advertising IDs), and information connected to how mobile devices interact with our Sites and those using our Sites. A mobile SDK is the mobile app version of a web beacon (see “Web Beacons” above). The SDK is computer code that app developers can include in their apps to enable ads to be shown, data to be collected, and related Sites to collect or analytics to be performed. We may use this technology to deliver or help our partners deliver certain advertising through mobile applications and browsers based on information associated with your mobile device.
By visiting the Sites, whether as a registered user or otherwise, you acknowledge, and agree that you are giving us your consent to track your activities and your use of the Sites through the technologies described above, as well as similar technologies developed in the future, and that we may use such tracking technologies in the emails we send to you.
Our unaffiliated partners and third parties may themselves set and access their own tracking technologies when you visit our Sites and they may have access to information about you and your online activities over time and across different websites or applications when you use the Sites. Their use of such tracking technologies is not in our control and is subject to their own privacy policies and/or Terms of Service.
The Sites may contain links to or integrations with other websites, social media channels or third party provides, such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other platforms whose information and privacy practices may be different than ours. Officialize shall not be liable for any issues or mishandling of your information by other sites, and users should consult these other services’ privacy policies as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.
