We collect information from you in several different ways in our Service. One goal in collecting personal information from you is to provide an efficient, meaningful, and customized experience. For example, we can use your personal information to:
(a) Registration. Before using certain parts of the Service, you may have to register with your Facebook credentials or by providing certain personal information such as name and email address. These kinds of personal information are used to provide a unique experience within the Service, to communicate with you about your account, and for marketing purposes..
(b) Email Addresses. Several locations of the Service may permit you to enter or for us to capture your email address for purposes including but not limited to: to register for promotions or products; or to request us to notify you regarding particular promotions or products. Your participation in a promotion is completely voluntary, so you have a choice whether to participate and disclose information to us. We use this information to notify promotion winners and to award prizes. We may post on our Site the names and cities of contest winners.
(c) Cookies and Other Technology. Like many websites, the Service may employ cookies, location based services and web beacons (also known as clear GIF technology or "action tags") to speed your navigation of the Services, recognize you and your access privileges, and track your usage.
(ii) Web beacons assist in delivering cookies and help us determine whether a web page on this Site has been viewed and, if so, how many times. For example, any electronic image on the Site, such as an ad banner, can function as a web beacon. We may also use web beacons to collect information about whether our electronic communications to our users have been delivered, viewed and opened. This data may impact the quantity and content of future communications from us to our users.
(iii) We may use third-party companies to help us tailor Services content to users or to serve ads or messages on our behalf. These companies may employ cookies and web beacons to measure advertising or messaging effectiveness (such as which web pages are visited, which messages are responded to, or what products are purchased and in what amount). Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and web beacons is not linked (by them) to any personal information collected by us.
(d) Log Files. As is true of most websites, the Site automatically recognizes the Internet URL or location from which you access the Site. We may also log your Internet protocol ("IP") address, Internet service provider, and date/time stamp for system administration, order verification, marketing, and system troubleshooting purposes. (An IP address may indicate the location of your computer on the Internet.) We may also log detailed User usage of the Service to inform decisions on how to improve future versions of the Service.
(a) Internal Use. We use your personal information to provide secure access and a personalized experience when using the Service. We may internally use, and share with our parent company any affiliates, your personal information to improve our Service's content and features, to improve our outreach and for our own marketing efforts (including marketing our services and products to you), and to determine general marketplace information about visitors' usage behavior to the Service.
(b) Communications with You. We will use your personal information to communicate with you about our Service and about upcoming events offered by sports teams and other partners with whom we have relationships. Also, we may send you a confirmation email when you register with us. We may send you a service-related announcement on the rare occasions when it is necessary (for example, if we must temporarily suspend our service for maintenance.) Also, we will send you a notification email when you request us to notify you when particular products or promotions become available. We always permit you to unsubscribe from product availability notifications.
(c) External Use. We want to provide you with excellent service and to offer you a great, personalized experience with the FanBeat Service. We do not sell, rent, trade, license or otherwise disclose your specific personal or transactional information to anyone except as described below:
(i) We have relationships with sports teams and others who help manage the competitions offered by the Service on mobile devices. We may provide them some personal information such as your name, email, and/or phone number so that they may contact you about events you may be interested in. We also provide them at the conclusion of each of their events a report which contains the name, email address, phone number and participation history of each of the registrants for that event.
(iii) We may be required to disclose certain information in response to requests from law-enforcement officials conducting investigations; subpoenas; a court order; or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law. We also will release personal information where disclosure is necessary to protect our legal rights, enforce other agreements, or to protect ourselves or others. For example, we may share information to reduce the risk of fraud or if someone uses or attempts to use our Site for illegal reasons or to commit fraud.
(iv) We may share non-personal information (such as the number of daily visitors to a particular Service event) with third parties such as sports teams and sponsors. This information does not directly personally identify you or any user.
FanBeat uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to FanBeat and you do so at your own risk.
