OUR COMMITMENT TO PRIVACY
Your privacy is important to us. Start Or Sit, inc. ("Start Or Sit," "we," or "us"), has prepared this notice to describe to you our practices regarding the personal information we collect from the users of our Web site located at www.startorsit.com (the "Site"), our mobile application (the "Application"), and our online fantasy sports-related services available through the Site and the Application (the "Service"). This notice does not apply to Web sites, applications, or services that do not display or link to this statement or that display or link to different privacy statements.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Information You Provide To Us
We may collect personal information from you, such as your first and last name, location, email address, username and password, and the country and state in which you reside, when you create an account to log in to our network ("Account").
When you order Services on our Site, we may collect information that we require to provide such Services, including your name, address, phone number, and any other information necessary to complete the transaction.
If you use our Application on your mobile device, we may collect your phone number and unique device ID number.
If you provide us with feedback or contact us via email, we will collect your name and email address as well as any other content included in the email in order to send you a reply. We will also collect your profile photo and username that you upload to your public profile page ("Profile"). When you participate in any contest, game, or other fantasy sports-related contest via our Services (each termed a "Contest"), other participants in the Contest (each termed a "Player") will be able to see the information in your Profile.
If you tell us where you are (e.g., by allowing your mobile device to send us your location), we may store and use that information to verify your eligibility to enter certain Contests and for fraud prevention purposes.
When you participate in one of our surveys, we may collect additional profile information. If you participate in a contest or giveaway on our Services, we may ask you for your email address and/or home phone number (to notify you as to whether you won or not). We may also ask for first and last names and may sometimes post office addresses to verify your identity. In some situations, we may need additional information as part of the entry process, such as a prize selection choice, or as needed to comply with state and federal banking and tax laws. These sweepstakes and Contests are voluntary. We recommend that you read the rules for each sweepstakes and contest that you enter.
We may also collect information at other points on our Site and Services where it is clear that we are collecting such information.
INFORMATION COLLECTED VIA TECHNOLOGY
Information Collected by Our Services
To make our Site and the Service more useful, our Site automatically tracks certain information about its visitors, including browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol (IP) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), domain name, clickstream data, referring/existing pages, and/or a date/time stamp for the visit. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the Site, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, improve our Site and Services, and for product development purposes. For example, some information may be collected so that when you revisit the Site or Services, it will recognize you and the information appropriate to your interests.
In addition, we use "Pixel Tags" (also referred to as clear Gifs, Web beacons, or Web bugs). Pixel Tags are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to Cookies, that are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to Cookies, which are stored on a computer’s hard drive or web Browser, Pixel Tags are embedded invisibly in Web pages. Pixel Tags also allow us to send email messages in a format that users can read and tell us whether emails have been opened in order to, in part, ensure that we are sending only messages that are of interest to our users. We may also use this information to reduce or eliminate the messages sent to a user.
We may use certain third party service providers to provide threat detection, user authentication, and fraud prevention services. These service providers may automatically collect certain information about your visits to the Site and the device you use to connect to our Services in order to monitor for potential threats or bad actors. This information may include, among other things, your IP address and your device’s unique device identifier.
Collection of Data in Connection with Advertising
We may also collect non-personal information from your mobile device if you have downloaded our Application. This information is generally used to help us deliver the most relevant information to you. Examples of information that may be collected and used include how you use the Application and information about the type of device you use. In addition, in the event that our Application crashes on your mobile device, we will receive information about your mobile device model, software version, and device carrier, allowing us to identify and fix bugs and otherwise improve the performance of our Application.
Third Party Analytics
We may enter into agreements with companies that refer users to our Service by way of hyperlinks made available on their Web sites. We may automatically collect certain information, such as your IP address and the referring Web site, via the Cookies and Pixel Tags that are provided to us in connection with your use of the referring party’s Web site. This policy does not apply to, and we are not responsible for, Cookies or Pixel Tags provided by third party Web sites.
We may collect your location information for the purpose of verifying whether you are eligible to participate in a Contest, sweepstakes, or giveaway on our Services.
INFORMATION COLLECTED FROM OR ABOUT FRIENDS
Our Services may enable you to invite your friends to join in the fun. We enable users to invite friends in two ways:
- You may invite a friend to register on our Services by providing us with their email address. We will collect the email address(es) you provide in order to facilitate that invitation. We rely upon you to obtain whatever consents from the third party that may be required by law to allow us to access and upload the third party’s name and e-mail address(es) as required above. If you are using the Application to refer-a-friend, the Application may also collect your phone number, which we may use for fraud prevention and user authentication among other purposes. You or the third party may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request the removal of this information from our database.
- We may enable you to send your friends an invite to register on our Services via text message. We employ various techniques in order to enable you to invite your friends in this way, including offering contact importer tools to facilitate adding your contacts (including the contacts in your address book) so that you can more readily ask such people to join the Services and communicate with you. With your permission, we will access your address book and import your contacts’ names, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, images, geographic locations, and any other information associated with them to determine which have not registered for an Account. The text message that is sent to your friends will come from your phone number so they will know you want to invite them to visit the Site. We also collect your phone number during this process to send you a text message for account verification purposes along with some settings that help us interpret your data, such as the language and keyboard settings that you have established as well as the phone’s carrier, mobile network code, and mobile country code.
Our Services may enable you to invite your friends who have an Account to join a Contest. In order to invite friends with Accounts to join a Contest, you may either (1) enter the username associated with their account to find and locate them or (2) in the event that you are using our Application, you may use our contact importer tool to import and search your contacts (including contacts in your address book) to find those who are also registered users of the Services. With your permission, we will access your address book and import your contacts’ names, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, images, geographic locations, and any other information associated with your contacts to facilitate automatic connection.
Information Collected from Other Sources
We may supplement the information we have about you with information received from other sources, including that from our pages on social networking sites, the social networking sites themselves, and from commercially available sources (e.g., data brokers and public databases). The information we receive may include demographic data such as age, gender, income level, your interests, purchase data, and other information that is necessary or useful to assist our marketing efforts or for user verification, authentication, fraud detection, or to comply with regulatory requirements.
