Users of the Site, Apps and our Services
We collect, store and use your personal information for the following purposes:
- to make the Site and Apps available to you; and
- to provide any Services that you request.
Sometimes, our use of your personal information is for purposes which are ancillary to the provision of the Site, Apps and then Services, or which are desirable in order to make them operate more effectively. In those circumstances, we believe we have a legitimate interest in handling your personal information, and do not believe that this storage and use of your personal information will unduly prejudice your rights or freedoms.

- determining the effectiveness of any promotional campaigns and advertising we undertake; and
- where you have given us your consent, contacting you with products and services which we think may interest you.
In some, relatively limited, circumstances we need to handle your personal information in a certain way to be able to comply with our legal obligations – for example: if we are requested to disclose your personal information to regulatory bodies; if we need to demonstrate our compliance with applicable law; and for the purposes of compliance with any applicable laws in respect of our business and our provision of services.
We collect anonymised details about visitors to our Site for the purposes of aggregate statistics or reporting purposes. However, no single individual will be identifiable from the anonymised details we collect for these purposes.
How we share your personal information and who we share it with
We will disclose information under the following circumstances:

- Merger or acquisition: When we need to transfer information about you if we are acquired by or merged with another company. If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, you will be notified by email and/or a prominent notice on our Site of, as applicable, any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.
We may provide temporary access to your personal information that we collect from you to third parties within the EU or to our group of companies outside of the EU / EEA in connection with the above purposes.
Where we provide temporary access to such third parties, we abide by the European Commission’s data protection clauses as our standard operating procedure. Our group of companies outside of the EU / EEA abide by the European Commission’s data protection clauses.
We will never store your personal data outside of the EU longer than necessary in connection with the above purposes, nor give access to any of your personal information to third party services who would not comply with the European Commission’s data protection clauses.

You’ll also receive transactional emails from us. These emails would always be triggered by your actions, informing you about new scores or other responses to events that you initiated. You cannot unsubscribe from these emails as this communication is required for us to provide you this service.
You have certain rights in relation to your personal information. If you would like further information in relation to these or would like to exercise any of them, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org at any time. You have the right to request that we:

We will consider all such requests and provide our response within a reasonable period (and in any event within any time period required by applicable law). Please note, however, that certain personal information may be exempt from such requests in certain circumstances.
If an exception applies, we will tell you this when responding to your request. We may request you provide us with information necessary to confirm your identity before responding to any request you make.
