1. PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Information you provide to us and information we receive about you from others
We may collect personal information when you create a registered user account, sign up for our tournaments, mailing list, purchase or otherwise communicate with us. The personal information we collect during registration could include: name, surname, phone number, email address, your location (country, city, town) and payment information. We may also collect such information when you contact us in person (for example, at, tournaments, expos, conferences, workshops, seminars and other events), via telephone, or email.
In addition, we collect the following types of information:
Data collected through the use of the Service: We collect information about how you use the Service, your actions on the Service, and any content you post to the Service (“User Content”), as well as information about a player or team record, for example, gameplay statistics, personal or team awards and highlights featuring the team or athlete.
Information we receive from third parties: We may receive personal information about you from third parties and combine that with the information we collect through the Service. For example, we receive information about your activities on third party games you access through the Service. We may also receive information from any third-party services that you link to the Service.
We use this information to operate, maintain, and provide the features and functionality of the Service, as well as to communicate directly with you, such as to send you email messages and push notifications, and permit you to communicate with others on the Service or invite others to join the Service. We may also send you Service-related emails or messages (e.g., account verification, change or updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices). For more information about your communication preferences, see “Your Data Rights and Choices” below.
Usage and Device Information
To provide a personalized and high-quality experience for our users, we may use various technologies that automatically record certain technical information from your browser or device when you visit our website, read our emails, use our Service or otherwise engage with us. This information is typically collected through a variety of tracking technologies, including cookies, web beacons, file information and similar technology (collectively, “tracking technologies”). These tracking technologies cookies collect information about how you use the Service (e.g., the pages you view, the links you click, emails you open, and other actions you take on the Service), information about your browser and online usage patterns (e.g., Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, pages viewed, whether you opened an email , links clicked), and information about the device(s) you use to access the Service (e.g., mobile device identifier, mobile carrier, device type, model and manufacturer, mobile device operating system brand and model, and whether you access the Service from multiple devices). We may be able to determine your approximate location by analyzing other information, like an IP address to associate a user with their location. We may also collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools such as Google Analytics to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Service. You can learn more about Google’s practices at https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites, and view its currently available opt-out options at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. Although we do our best to honor the privacy preferences of our visitors, we are not able to respond to Do Not Track signals from your browser at this time.
We use or may use the data collected through tracking technologies to secure the Service, improve the Service, to save you time, to provide better technical support, and to track website usage. For example, tracking technologies help us to: (a) remember information so that a user will not have to re-enter it during subsequent visits; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information; (c) to identify you across multiple devices; (d) to provide and monitor the effectiveness of our Service; (e) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and usage on our website and our Service; (f) diagnose or fix technology problems; (g) help users efficiently access information after signing in, and (h) otherwise to plan for and enhance our Service. If you would prefer not to accept cookies, most browsers will allow you to: (i) change your browser settings to notify you when you receive a cookie, which lets you choose whether or not to accept it; (ii) disable existing cookies; or (iii) set your browser to automatically reject cookies. Please note that doing so may negatively impact your experience using the Service, as some features and services on our Service may not work properly. Depending on your mobile device and operating system, you may not be able to delete or block all cookies. You may also set your email options to prevent the automatic downloading of images that may contain technologies that would allow us to know whether you have accessed our email and performed certain functions with it.
2. SHARING OF YOUR INFORMATION
Ekasi Esports takes great care to protect the information you provide us. We do not rent or sell personal information that we collect from users with third parties for marketing purposes without your consent.
Ekasi Esports will disclose your personal information when you post content which is visible to others on the Service, 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. For example, your information may be shared with:
The public (when Player Data contained in Competition Data is visible to others on the Service by default). Like any sports league, some information about players, team and competition results is posted on the Service and may be visible to other users, website visitors and the public (“Competition Data”). Competition Data includes certain personal information from the players Profile, including player name, full name, location (name, city, town), photo or avatar, as well as player statistics and gameplay highlights, which will be available publicly on the Service by default when you participate in the Service. Email addresses, 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, we may provide our corporate partners and official sponsors information about players, such as name, location and email address. Our sponsors may use this information to offer deals, discounts and other promotional content.
- Special tournaments you participate in. If you participate in special tournaments where Ekasi Esports partners with third parties, Ekasi Esports may share data collected from or about you with its third party partners to facilitate the tournament or services being offered.
- 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 Ekasi Esports. 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 Ekasi Esports content to social media sites such as Facebook, Instagram 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 Ekasi Esports account.
We may also share information for the following business purposes:
- 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 services, web hosting, or providing analytic services.
- Third parties as required by law or subpoena or if we reasonably believe that such action is necessary to comply with the law and the reasonable requests of law enforcement.
- 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 Service, user functionality and product offerings.
3. THIRD PARTY TRACKING AND ONLINE ADVERTISING
Please note that we will do our best efforts and take multiple steps to avoid the use of User Data for targeted advertising purposes, for example, by inhibiting these third party advertising networks from collecting information for targeted advertising purposes when a user logs into the Service.
4. HOW WE STORE AND PROTECT OUR INFORMATION
Storage and processing: Your information collected through our Service may be stored and processed in South Africa or any other country in which Ekasi Esports or its affiliates or service providers maintain facilities. If you are located in countries with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from South African Laws, 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 Service. 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.
