PG Stats takes great care to protect the information you provide us. PG Stats will disclose your personal information when you consent or instruct us to share your information with third parties, or when we have a legitimate business or legal need to share your information. We may also disclose anonymous or aggregate information that does not reasonably identify you as an individual. For example, your information may be shared with the public (when Data contained in Competition Data is visible to others on the Site by default). Competition Data includes certain personal information from the User’s Profile, including player name, full name, photo or avatar, and esports position, as well as athlete player statistics and gameplay highlights, which will be available publicly on the Site by default when you participate in the Site. Email addresses, parent or guardian information (name, relation, email and phone), payment details, and birth date are not Competition Data and are not available to the general public.
Third Party Partners and Sponsors. From time to time, and in a manner consistent with your preferences or as permitted by law, we may provide our corporate partners and official sponsors information about adult Users, such as a name and email address. Our sponsors may use this information to offer deals, discounts and other promotional content to Users.
- Others with your consent. In some instances, you may be able to grant us permission to share your information with third-party partners, recruiters, not-for-profit organizations, and other entities that are not affiliated with PG Stats. In these cases, we will only provide to these third parties the information you have authorized or asked us to share to these third parties. You may also choose to share content with others by email, or by posting PG Stats content to social media sites such as Facebook or Twitter. These third parties may use your information as described in their own privacy policies. To control the information that you share, you can adjust your social network settings or disconnect your social network account from your PGstats Account.
- Third-party vendors and other service providers that perform services on our behalf, as needed to carry out their work for us, which may include providing mailing services, providing payment or accounting service, web hosting, or providing analytic services.
We may also share information with others in an aggregated or otherwise anonymized form that does not reasonably identify you directly as an individual. For example, we may use and share aggregate or anonymized data to study and improve our Site, user functionality and product offerings.
California Users. PG Stats will not sell or share the personal information of Users unless the User, in the case of Users at least 13 years of age and less than 16 years of age, or the User’s parent or guardian, in the case of Users less than 13 years of age, affirmatively authorizes the sale or sharing of the User’s personal information.

4. HOW WE STORE AND PROTECT OUR INFORMATION
Storage and processing: Your information collected through our Site may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which PG Stats or its affiliates or Site providers maintain facilities. If you are located in the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that we may transfer information, including personal information, to a country and jurisdiction that does not have the same data protection laws as your jurisdiction.
Keeping information safe: We care about the security of your information and employ physical, administrative, and technological safeguards designed to preserve the integrity and security of all information collected and maintained by our Site. Access to information is limited to those employees who require it to perform their job functions. We use industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology to safeguard the account registration process and sign-up information. Other security safeguards include but are not limited to data encryption, firewalls, and physical access controls to building and files. However, no security system is impenetrable and we cannot guarantee the security of our systems 100%. In the event that any information under our control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, we will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and, where appropriate, notify those individuals whose information may have been compromised and take other steps, in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations.

6. HOW DOES PG STATS PROTECT YOUR DATA AND COMPLY WITH LAWS?
Through the course of providing the Site, PG Stats collects information about Users who use the Site to compete in esports. Personal information collected, along with other information associated with that personal information, is “User Data.” The User Data we collect can include name, email address, and may collect additional information associated with the User profile, including the player name, parent/guardian information (name, relation, e-mail and phone), photo or avatar, and esports position. Please note that Users have the ability to save or maintain control over information associated with the User’s account
This Section describes our practices with regard to User Data.
User Data privacy principles. We are committed to the following principles to protect User Data:
- We do not use or disclose User Data for targeted advertising purposes. While we do permit third party advertising partners to operate on our Site for the purpose of retargeting, analytics and attribution Sites, we take steps to disable third party ad networks from collecting information for targeted advertising purposes when a User logs into an account on the Site.
- We do not build a personal profile of a User other than in furtherance of the User’s use of the Site (for example, profiles and player history are created and displayed as part of the esports competition statistics and history), or as authorized by a User or parent, for example, if a User transfers information to a personal account.
- We maintain a comprehensive data security program designed to protect the types of User Data maintained by the Site.
- We will clearly and transparently disclose our data policies and practices to our Users.
PLEASE NOTE: Competition Data, which may contain your Data, is disclosed to the public by default. Some information about athletes and competition results is posted on the Site and may be visible to other users, website visitors and others (“Competition Data”). Competition Data includes certain personal information provided by the User in their profile, including: player name, full name, photo and/or avatar, and esports position, as well as player statistics and gameplay highlights. Email addresses, phone number, parent or guardian information (name, relation, email and phone), payment details, and birth date are not Competition Data and are not available to the general public.
Users (or their Parents) can request account deletion at any time by contacting PG Stats at email@example.com. We may not be able to immediately or completely delete all data in all instances, such as information retained in technical support records, customer Site records, backups, and other similar business records. We will not be required to delete any information which has been de-identified or disassociated with personal identifiers such that the remaining information cannot reasonably be used to identify a particular individual, nor will we be required to delete User information that has been transferred to a personal account except at the direction of the User or parent. Please note that we may not be able to delete Competition Data but we may be able to anonymize certain Competition Data upon request.
7. LINKS TO OTHER WEB SITES AND SITES
The Site may contain links to and from third party websites of our business partners (such as gaming providers), advertisers, social media sites and other Sites.

We strongly recommend that you read their privacy policies and terms and conditions of use to understand how they collect, use, and share information.
