Information Collection and Use
Basic Account Information: You don’t have to create an account to use some of our service features, such as searching and viewing public. When you create or reconfigure a BallFrog account, you provide some personal information, such as your name, username, password, and email address. Your name and username are listed publicly on our Services, including on your profile page and in search results.
Profile Information: You may provide us with profile information to make public, such as your location or a picture. We may use your contact information to send you information about our Services or to market to you. You may unsubscribe from notifications from BallFrog by following the instructions contained within the notification or the instructions on our website. We may use your contact information to help others find your BallFrog account, including through third-party services and client applications. If you email us, we may keep your message, email address and contact information to respond to your request. If you connect your BallFrog account to your account on another service in order to cross-post between BallFrog and that service, the other service may send us your registration or profile information on that service and other information that you authorize. This information enables cross-posting, helps us improve the Services, and is deleted from BallFrog within a few weeks of your disconnecting from BallFrog your account on the other service. Providing the additional information described in this section is entirely optional.
Public Information: Our Services are primarily designed to help you share information with the world. Most of the information you provide us is information you are asking us to make public. This includes not only the scores and photos/videos you post, the metadata provided with those posts, such as the time and date you posted, but also the games and teams you follow, the people you follow, and many other bits of information that result from your use of the Services. We may use this information to customize the content we show you, including ads. Our default is almost always to make the information you provide public for as long as you do not delete it from BallFrog. Our Services broadly and instantly disseminate your public information to a wide range of users, customers, and services. For instance, your public user profile information and public posts are immediately delivered via APIs to our partners and other third parties, including search engines, developers, and publishers that integrate BallFrog content into their services. When you share information or content, such as photos, videos, and links via the Services, you should consider what you are making public.
Location Information: You may choose to publish your location in your posts and in your BallFrog profile. You may also tell us your location when you set your location on BallFrog.com or your computer or mobile device sends us location information. We may also use other data from your device to determine location, for example, information about wireless networks or cell towers near your mobile device, or your IP address. We may use and store information about your location to provide features of our Services and to customize the Services, for example, with more relevant content like local games, teams, ads, and suggestions for people to follow.
