3. Information We May Collect
Except as disclosed below, we do not sell, rent, lease, give away or barter your personal information.
(a) Personal Information. Use of certain features of the Site, like signing up to be a GM or a player in the tournament, becoming a fan, signing up to receive a newsletter, or responding to one of our website polls may require that you provide certain personally identifiable information, in other words, information that identifies or describes you, such as your name, email address, telephone numbers, address, zip code, age, and gender (“personal information”). Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through other channels to which our Site may direct you, such as Twitter, Facebook, or public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others.
(b) Anonymous Information. Even if you don’t request a newsletter or fill-out a poll, when you interact with the Site, we may collect certain non-personal information. For example, our servers keep an activity log that tracks all visitors to the Site. The information in the activity log is anonymous and therefore does not identify you individually. The anonymous information our server collects may include among other data: your IP address, browser type, your registered domain or home server, time of access, date of access, web page(s) visited, number of clicks, software crash reports, session identification number, search terms, search results, access times and referring website’s addresses.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but, if you prefer, you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. For more information on cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the information provided by the Interactive Advertising Bureau at www.allaboutcookies.org.
(e) No Information Collected From Children. Our Site is not directed to children under the age of 13, and we do not solicit or knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 years of age. You must be at least 18 to become a registered fan on our Site. If you are under 13 years of age, you should not use this Site, and under no circumstance should you send information about yourself to us even if you are older than 13, but younger than 18. If we discover that anyone under the age of 18 has provided us with personal information, we will promptly delete that child’s information from the Site.
5. How We May Use Your Information
(c) Use of Anonymous Information. We may use anonymous information to help us determine how people use parts of the Site and who our users are so we can improve our Site. We may also use anonymous information to provide information in aggregated form to our partners and other third parties about how our users collectively use the Site. We may also use or share anonymous information (or other information, other than personal information) in any other manner that we decide is appropriate or necessary.
(d) Third-Parties. We may occasionally hire third party representatives, agents, affiliates and partners that perform functions on our behalf, such as event registration, marketing, analytics, etc. These entities may have access to your personal information but only as needed to perform their services and without the right to make independent use or disclosure of your personal information.
(e) Emergency Situations. We may also use or disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to applicable law or comply with legal process served on us or the Site; (b) protect and defend our rights or property, the Site or our users, and (c) act under emergency circumstances to protect our personal safety, or the safety of our affiliates, agents, or the users of the Site or the public.
(f) Verification of Identity. As TBT places a high value on the legitimacy of the competition, both on the court and for entry into the Tournament, TBT may use your personal information, including any and all biographical data you provide and any and all contact information you provide, in order to confirm your identity. In the course of these efforts, TBT may contact you for the purpose of confirming your identity and your participation as a Fan or as a Participant in the tournament.
(g) Termination of Account. Upon your request, TBT will terminate your account. Upon termination, TBT will stop communications with you, but may maintain your account’s information for internal purposes only.
The security of your information is of great concern to us. We exercise care in providing secure transmission of your information from your computer to our servers. Personal information collected by our Site is stored in secure operating environments that are not open to the public. While we try our best to safeguard your information once we receive it, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
