Privacy & Data Policy
Last Updated: November 10, 2022
This Policy covers The Players Academy treatment of personally identifiable information that The Players Academy gathers when you are accessing a The Players Academy web site or application. This Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that The Players Academy does not own or control, or to individuals that The Players Academy does not employ or manage.
Collection and Use of Information
Some of The Players Academy web sites permit users, subject further to The Players Academy online Terms of Service, to register for events or programs, request information, enter contests, vote in polls or otherwise express opinions or submit comments. As part of such use, you may be asked to register for an account and to provide your personal information.
The Players Academy uses your information to perform transactions, deliver services or information you have requested, and offer you products and services from The Players Academy and our trusted partners, programs or services that we believe may be of interest to you. The Players Academy also uses your information to contact you when necessary for customer service purposes. We may combine your information that we have with information we obtain from business partners or third parties to provide you with a better The Players Academy experience. The Players Academy may use information relating to your visit or use of our web sites, or information you provide to us, for market research purposes in order to continually improve the products and services that The Players Academy delivers to you.
If you choose to submit content for publication we may publish your screen name and other information as provided by you or to personalize your user experience. If you register for a competitive event, your name, event entry identification, and interim and final event time results may be made publicly available on any The Players Academy web site.
Credit / Debit Card Processing and Information
The Players Academy uses other third parties, such Apple or Google, for credit card processing to bill you for services and we do not hold or store credit or debit card numbers or information and cannot access such information from our third party providers.
Although The Players Academy owns the code, databases, and all rights to the The Players Academy web site and application, you retain all rights to your data.
Third party advertisers (including ad-serving companies) may assume that people who interact with, view, or click targeted ads meet certain targeting criteria. However, The Players Academy does not provide any personal information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted advertisement.
Except as otherwise described in this Policy, it is The Players Academy policy not to distribute to third parties any personally identifying information about you without your consent (usually communicated through either an “opt-out” or “opt-in” notification or mechanism). Upon obtaining your consent, The Players Academy may provide access to or otherwise disclose your personally identifying information to third parties. However, we may aggregate certain personally identifying information – meaning that the information from many The Players Academy users is grouped together in a way that does not disclose the personal information of any particular user — without your consent.
You may choose not to submit certain personal information while on our web sites. In such instances The Players Academy may not be able to provide you with certain services.
If you are using our services to register for an event, program or to purchase a third party product, The Players Academy shares the personal information you provide to applicable third party(ies) to fulfill your request. Each such party operates independently from The Players Academy and maintains its own privacy and security policy. The Players Academy bears no responsibility for the activities of any such third party to whom The Players Academy provides information to process your request and you should contact those third parties directly regarding your preferences for the use of your personal information.
The Players Academy may release your personal information to third parties: (a) in order to comply with a valid legal requirement such as in compliance with any law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order; or (b) in special cases, when we believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent or take action regarding any illegal or unauthorized activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or violations of our Terms of Service.
The Players Academy has established and maintains reasonable security procedures to protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of your personally identifiable information, including the use of secure socket layer (SSL) and encryption methods. We regularly evaluate our data collection, storage and processing practices and security to guard against unauthorized access to our systems. You can help to protect your information by safeguarding your The Players Academy password and using caution and discretion when posting information on public areas of the sites.
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, The Players Academy has put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect online.
Your The Players Academy account personal information is protected by a password for your privacy and security. You need to prevent unauthorized access to your account and personal information by selecting and protecting your password appropriately and limiting access to your computer and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account.
Although The Players Academy uses commercially reasonable efforts to safeguard your information, transmissions made by means of the Internet cannot be fully secure in all instances and we cannot guarantee that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is not consistent with this Policy.
In addition, if at any time you no longer want us to send you any regular communications, you may “opt-out” of such future communications, clicking on the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the email or other correspondence. To “opt-out” of products, programs, services, or offers from our trusted partners, please contact us.
The Players Academy does not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13. Furthermore, we do not target our service to children under the age of 13 nor do we knowingly communicate with children under 13. When we work with teams and groups with some children under 13, the parents / guardians of such children are responsible for entering and managing their children’s information or authorizing others to do so.
The Players Academy regularly reviews its practices regarding personally identifiable information and this Policy. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact us at:
The Players Academy may transfer the personal information collected under this Policy to a third party in the event of a transfer of ownership such as a merger, acquisition or any form of sale of the majority of the assets or equity of The Players Academy LLC. The Players Academy may periodically update this Policy. We will notify you about significant changes in how we treat personal information by sending a notice to the email address specified in your account or by placing an update on our site.
