Our use of Cookies and Similar Technologies

We may collect your information, including Personal Data, through the use of cookies, pixel tags, local shared objects, web storage and other similar technologies. By using the Services, you are consenting to the use of the technologies described herein and similar technologies to collect and store information on your device or web browser.

A cookie is a piece of information placed on your computer or mobile device through your web browser when you access and/or use the Services that stores text and which can later be read back by the Services or third parties. Cookies are used to recognize your browser and you as a unique user. Cookies may be session cookies (i.e., last only for one browser session) or persistent cookies (i.e., continue on your browser until they are affirmatively deleted). You can manage cookies through your web browser's option settings, and through those settings you may be able (i) to receive notifications when you are receiving new cookies, (ii) to disable cookies or (iii) to delete cookies. Please refer to your web browser's help section for information on how to do this.

A pixel tag, or web beacon, is a tiny invisible tag or graphic placed on certain parts of the Services or other websites, in emails or in certain other downloadable content, but not on your computer, mobile device or browser, except to the extent that you download the content that contains such tags. Pixel tags do not store information on your computer, mobile device or browser (although they are occasionally downloaded to your computer if contained in an email or other downloadable content) so they cannot be managed by you except by deleting the content in which the tag is contained.

A local shared object is similar to a cookie, except it can store more than just text. Local shared objects are stored on your computer or mobile device. You can manage privacy and storage settings for local shared objects by visiting Flash’s Website Storage Settings panel.

We may use third-party website analytics services in connection with the Services, including, for example, to register mouse clicks, mouse movements, scrolling activity and text typed into our websites. We use the information collected from these services to help make the Services easier to use and as otherwise set forth in this privacy policy. These website analytics services generally do not collect Personal Data unless you voluntarily provide it and generally do not track your browsing habits across websites that do not use their services

To determine if users have interacted with content across multiple devices and to match such devices, we may work with partners who analyze device activity data and/or rely on your information (including demographic, geographic and interest-based data). To supplement this analysis, we may also provide de-identified data to these partners. Based on this data, we may then display targeted advertisements across devices that we believe are associated or use this data to further analyze usage of Services across devices.

We use and allow third parties to use these technologies for a variety of purposes, including, without limitation, the operation of the Services or parts of the Services, monitoring the Services and to analyzing how you use the Services, allowing us to provide certain functionality on the Services and to remember your preferences, delivering advertisements to you, both on and off the Services. By using these technologies, we aim to provide advertisements targeted to your interests. Sometimes this is called online behavioral, interest-based, or retargeted advertising. For more information on these types of ads, or to stop use of tracking technologies for these purposes, go to www.aboutads.info or www.networkadvertising.org.

Your Choices

You can use the Services without providing any Personal Data or with limiting the Personal Data you provide. If you choose not to provide any Personal Data or limit the Personal Data you provide, you may not be able to use certain functionality of the Services. For instance, in order to register for an event, your name and game accounts (platforms) will be required.

Opt Out

You can “opt out” of receiving our marketing emails from us by clicking unsubscribe within the email. It may take several days for us to process an unsubscribe request. Even after you opt out of all communications, we will retain your Personal Data and Non-Personal Data in accordance with this privacy policy. However, we will no longer use it to contact you. You can also deactivate your IEL account. Once your account is deactivated, the account will permanently lose all private information. We however reserve ourselves the right to keep a log of registered RL accounts to prevent cheating.

Do Not Track

We currently do not participate in any “Do Not Track” frameworks that would allow us to respond to signals or other mechanisms from you regarding the collection of your Personal Data.

Exclusions

This privacy policy does not apply to any Personal Data collected by us other than Personal Data collected through the Services. This privacy policy does not apply to any unsolicited information you provide to us or another user or visitor through the Services or through any other means. This includes, but is not limited to, information posted to any public areas of the Services, such as bulletin boards, any ideas for new products or modifications to existing products, claim or demand letters, Digital Millennium Copyright Act notices and other unsolicited submissions, all of which will be deemed to be non-confidential and will be used, reproduced, disclosed, distributed and exploited by us without limitation or attribution.

Links to Other Web Sites

This privacy policy applies only to the Services. The Services may contain links to other websites not operated or controlled by us. The policies and procedures we described here do not apply to those sites, nor do we endorse or review those sites. We suggest contacting those sites directly for information on their privacy policies.

Storage and Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We endeavor to follow the highest feasable standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and in storage.

Although we make good faith efforts to store Personal Information in a secure operating environment that is not open to the public, we do not and cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information. In particular, no Internet or e-mail transmission is ever fully secure or error free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from the Services may not be secure. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail and what Personal Data you disclose on the Internet.

If at any time during or after our relationship we believe that the security of your Personal Data may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we will endeavor to notify you as promptly as possible under the circumstances. If we have your e-mail address, we may notify you by e-mail to the most recent e-mail address you have provided us in your account profile. To receive these notices, you must check your e-mail account using your computer or mobile device and email application software. You consent to our use of e-mail as a means of such notification. If you prefer for us to use the mail to notify you in this situation, please e-mail us at contact@imperialesportsleague.co.uk. You can make this election any time, and it will apply to notifications we make after a reasonable time thereafter for us to process your request.

Consent to Transfer of Information to IEL purchased storage

If you are visiting our website or using one of our software applications, please be aware that you are sending information (including Personal Data) to where our provider's servers are located.

Changes to This Privacy Policy

We may update or modify our privacy policy from time to time. Modifications to this privacy policy will be posted to our website and Discord. In certain circumstances, we may choose to provide you with additional notice of such modifications by email, in-Service notifications or otherwise. Please review this policy periodically, and especially before you provide any Personal Data. YOUR CONTINUED USE OF THE SERVICES FOLLOWING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF ANY MODIFICATIONS TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY CONSTITUTES ACCEPTANCE OF THOSE MODIFICATIONS. IF ANY MODIFICATION TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY IS NOT ACCEPTABLE TO YOU, YOUR SOLE REMEDY IS TO CEASE ACCESSING, BROWSING AND OTHERWISE USING THE SERVICES.

Your Access to Your Information

You may access and update your Personal Data by logging into your account and visiting your account management page. You may also contact us directly at contact@imperialesportsleague.co.uk with respect to Personal Data that is not accessible through the Services. We will take reasonable steps to respond to requests relating to Personal Data within 30 days. However, we may reject requests that we find to be unreasonable (i.e., require disproportionate efforts or material changes to our information systems), impractical or abusive (e.g., repetitive requests, requests made in bad faith or requests that would compromise third party information). Note that you may not have access to or the ability to update Non-Personal Data, much of which is held in aggregate form.

Retention and Deletion

We may retain your Personal Data as long as you continue to use the Services. You may deactivate your account by contacting us. However, we may retain Personal Data and Non-Personal Data for an additional period as is permitted or required under applicable laws. Even if we delete your Personal Data it may persist on backup or archival media and other information systems.
