Information you provide us
For an individual user, the minimum amount of information we collect is your email address, a password, and your age. In most cases your name is required as well. If you register as a team owner, we also collect country location, time zone, team name, sport type, and contact information of the members of your team. This information about your team will be associated with your information.
We may receive your information from third parties that provide services for us in connection with the Sites and Services, and GameBeast may connect this information to your information that we already have.
Beyond the minimum information required to use the Services, we store data that you provide us for the Services. Examples include:

We use two broad categories of cookies: (1) first party cookies, served directly by us to your computer or mobile device, which are used only by us to recognize your computer or mobile device when it revisits our Services; and (2) third party cookies, which are served by service providers on our Services, and can be used by such service providers to recognize your computer or mobile device when it visits other websites.
Our Service uses the following types of cookies for the purposes set out below:
|Type of cookie||Purpose|
|Essential Cookies||These cookies are essential to provide you with our Services and to enable you to use some of the features. For example, they help the content of the pages you request load quickly. Without these cookies, the services that you have asked for cannot be provided, and we only use these cookies to provide you with those services.|
|Functionality Cookies||These cookies allow our Services to remember choices you make when you use our Services, such as remembering your language preferences, remembering your login details and remembering the changes you make to other parts of our Services which you can customize. The purpose of these cookies is to provide you with a more personal experience and to avoid you having to re-enter your preferences every time you visit our Services.|
|Analytics and Performance Cookies|
These cookies are used to collect information about traffic to our Services and how users use our Services. The information gathered does not identify any individual visitor. The information is aggregated and anonymous. It includes the number of visitors to our Services, the websites that referred them to our Services, the pages they visited on our Services, what time of day they visited our Services, whether they have visited our Services before, and other similar information. We use this information to help operate our Services more efficiently, to gather broad demographic information and to monitor the level of activity on our Services.
We use Google Analytics for this purpose. Google Analytics uses its own cookies. It is only used to improve how our Services works. You can find out more information about Google Analytics cookies here: https://developers.google.com/analytics/resources/concepts/gaConceptsCookies
You can find out more about how Google protects your information here: www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html.
You can prevent the use of Google Analytics relating to your use of Services by downloading and installing the browser plugin available via this link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB
We use Full Story for user experience analytics. You can opt out of cookies associated with Full Story via this link: https://www.fullstory.com/optout/ We also use Crazy Egg and Qualaroo for analytics. You may opt out of cookies associated with these analytics services by turning off third party cookies for our site in your browser.
|Targeted and advertising cookies||These cookies track your browsing habits to enable us to show advertising which is more likely to be of interest to you. These cookies use information about your browsing history to group you with other users who have similar interests. Based on that information, and with our permission, third party advertisers can place cookies to enable them to show ads which may be relevant to your interests while you are on third party websites.|
|Social Media Cookies||These cookies are used when you share information using a social media sharing button or “like” button on Services or you link your account or engage with our content on or through a social networking website such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+. The social network will record that you have done this.|

In order to do this, follow the instructions provided by your browser (usually located within the “settings,” “help” “tools” or “edit” facility). Many browsers are set to accept cookies until you change your settings. Further information about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your computer or mobile device and how to manage and delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org and www.youronlinechoices.com.uk.
If you do not accept our cookies, you may experience some inconvenience in your use of our Services. For example, we may not be able to recognize your computer or mobile device and you may need to log in every time you visit our Services.
Information about how you use the site
We track how users use our Sites and Services including what pages they visit and what actions they take.
Information about your device or network
We track what types of devices you use to access our Sites and Services. We collect device attributes like operating system, screen size, browser, etc.
We also track what networks you come from including your mobile operator, ISP, and location.
For security purposes we also track device specific information such as your IP address and device specific identifiers such as IDFA.
If you choose to purchase any of our paid services, you will need to pay using a payment card (e.g., credit or debit card). We use third party payment card processing companies to process payments in connection with the Sites and Services. These third parties have committed to GameBeast to process your payment card information in a secure, PCI compliant manner. Your payment card information is processed and retained by these third parties and will not be passed on to GameBeast; GameBeast does not store your payment card information.
If you are a team manager or league commissioner, you also may use GameBeast to collect funds from other users. We may deduct a service fee from these fund transfers, but we will always spell out any applicable fees at the time of the transaction. In addition, we will not use payment information you have provided for fund transfers to charge you for other services. The fund transfers do not flow through GameBeast and are accomplished using Propay or another third-party payment system, which is subject to separate terms with that third party (please review the section of this policy entitled “How We Share Your Information” below for more information).
Information from third parties
We receive data from third parties that are associated with GameBeast. These third parties provide us with data that you are using their service. In addition these third parties may provide us with information about services you may be interested in. For example, they may provide us with what sport you are associated with or what type of coaching you do.

Data you share through the Sites and Services
The Sites and Services offer a number of ways to share content with members of your team, your sports organization or even publicly. You make the determination what data you want to share and how you want to share it. For example, as a player or parent you can decide what data to enter on the roster and in some cases you can enter that data but make it private. Team owners can enable the ability for the team to share certain information to social media sites and sports organization owners can determine if they want a website that is publicly accessible. In all cases the data shared is driven by the users.
Vendors and service providers
GameBeast employs various third parties to run its service, as further described below. These third parties operate components of the GameBeast architecture. GameBeast relies on these third parties to maintain the safety and security of your information.

We retain information as long as it is necessary and relevant for our operations.

Subject to the following paragraph, we ask that you not send us, and you not disclose, any sensitive information (e.g., government identifiers, information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, biometrics or genetic characteristics or trade union membership) on or through the Services or otherwise to us.
