SPOT BIG offers various services that are accessible to users through this Site, such as, for example, a game where players are presented with a photograph of a sporting event where the ball has been removed from the image and players are asked to pick the spot on the image where they think the ball should be (the “Game”). Some Games are only available to users who have an account with SPOT BIG, such as checking order history, tracking orders online, etc. Other Games may be available to anyone on the Site, such as learning more about the Game and viewing other information relating to the same.

Information We Collect About You
We collect several types of information from and about users and Registered Users of this Site, including the information described below.
Personally Identifiable Information
As for Registered Users, most of the personally identifiable information we collect from Registered Users is voluntarily submitted by you, such as when you register(ed) for an account on the Site (“Account”), for example, first and last name, email and postal address, etc. In addition to the personally identifiable information described above, we may also collect some billing information such as name, billing address and shipping address, email and we accept, but do not collect, purchasing information, such as a method of payment – credit card, paypal, etc., to make purchasing offers, products and/or services easier and more convenient for you. We will also link some of the non-personally identifiable information described further below, with your personally identifiable information. This allows us to better understand the interests, needs, and objectives of our Registered Users such that we may better serve you.
We may occasionally offer additional opportunities for users and Registered Users to communicate with us. If we offer such opportunities, please note that we may collect and link such voluntarily submitted information with your IP address and/or browsing behavior in a way that makes such information personally identifiable information. If you do not want us to collect and/or link such information, please do not participate in such opportunities. The below list of opportunities are examples only and does not constitute the complete list of opportunities that we may provide.
We may also collect management information on our email campaigns, such as whether you have read an email sent by us, when and how many times, etc. We will use this information to improve content and to inform groups of users about relevant products and services.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Although we largely only collect personally identifiable information from Registered Users, we may collect non-personally identifiable information from everyone that accesses the Site and/or plays the Game. We use this information to help make the Site and Game more useful and appealing to you and to better understand our users and Registered Users.
Some of the information we collect is through the use of marketing and/or web analytic partners. Such marketing partners collect information like how often users visit this Site and/or play the Game, what pages they visit when they do so, what other sites they used prior to coming to this Site, and survey responses.
We may collect non-personally identifiable information about you through a variety of technical methods, including the following:
The information collected through these technical methods, standing alone, cannot be used to determine your identity. If such information is combined in a way that makes it become personally identifiable information, we will treat the combined information as personally identifiable information as described above.
We do not collect any financial information on this Site. If you make a debit or credit card payment online, you will be taken to a secure payment service provider who will take your payment on our behalf and return you to this Site when your order has been completed. You should not communicate credit card or other payment information via email, as it is not secure.

In addition to the uses described above, we may use your personally identifiable information to:
Sharing of Personally Identifiable Information
We do not take your trust in sharing your personally identifiable information with us lightly or for granted. That is why we do not share your information with other unaffiliated, third party companies for direct marketing purposes.
We also strive not to disclose more personally identifiable information than is necessary to complete a transaction, provide a requested service or to operate and improve the Site and/or Game so that they are useful to you. Therefore, we only share your personally identifiable information with third parties we trust, such as our purchasing processor(s), maintenance providers and/or marketing partners. Some of the categories of third parties we may share your personally identifiable information include:
Aggregation and De-Personalization
We may take your personally identifiable information and make it non-personally identifiable, either by combining it with information about other individuals (aggregating your information with information about other individuals), or by removing characteristics (such as your name) that make the information personally identifiable to you (de-personalizing your information). We may use and/or disclose to third parties such aggregate or de-personalized information in any manner and without notice or compensation to you.
Circumvention of Security Measures
Data Retention & Removal
We typically keep personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information for at least two years. Registered Users may close their Account by sending a request to email@example.com. Upon request, we will work with the Registered User in terminating their Account and to remove select information we have collected about the Registered User. However, please note that we may disassociate posted content and information from the Registered User in lieu of removing the same. Further, not all information can be deleted such as information which has been aggregated or is archived. We may also retain select information to prevent, investigate or identify any wrongdoing in connection with the Site and/or Services or to satisfy other legal obligations.
Do Not Track Requests
This Site does not respond to “do not track” requests. All traffic is treated as equal and processed the same in that we will track users and Registered Users use of the Site and/or Services as well as the webpage that the user or Registered Users came from before reaching the Site and the webpage to which he or she went after leaving the Site. If you desire to have your browsing be private, we suggest that you use your web browser’s private, incognito or other similar options.
From time to time, we may participate in or use advertising networks, such as third party advertising servers, advertising agencies, technology vendors and research firms. We may use these third-party advertising networks for marketing, advertising and promotional purposes, as well as to serve advertisements to you. Advertising networks often gather data about consumers who view advertisements to make inferences about a consumer’s interests and preferences, which enables their computers to deliver advertisements directly targeted to the consumer’s specific interests. This practice is often referred to as “online behavioral advertising.” For example, a third-party advertising network might collect the type of internet browser you use, the type of computer operating system you use, the domain name of a website you visit, whether or not you visit specific pages of this Site and other websites, the location of your internet service provider’s presence, the date and time of a visit to a website and other interactions between you and websites. Please see the “Online Behavioral Advertising” subsection of “Choices About How We Use and Collect Your Information” below to read about how you can prevent certain third-party advertising networks from collecting information about you.
