We also collect information about how you use our Services, such as the types of content you view or engage with or the frequency and duration of your activities.

How is your personal information used
Beware what you publish
The personal information that you provide to us and publish on your profile may reveal or allow others to identify aspects of your life that are not expressly stated on your profile (for example, your picture may reveal what is your home address). Your profile is public and all the Sportifico members and users will be able to see your posts and content. TeamMates functionality is by default private and can’t be public, so only members of certain TeamMates can see TeamMates Talk. Your massages and email are by default private and can’t be public.
Many communications that you initiate through our Services (for example, chat) will list your name in the header of the message. For coaches, messages you initiate may also provide the recipient with aggregate information about your TeamMates (for example, how many players there are in your TeamMates). Other communications that you initiate through the Services, like a request for an introduction, will list your name as the initiator but will not include your personal email address contact information. Once you have connected with an individual, regardless of who sent the invitation, your contact information will be shared with that individual in accordance with your privacy settings.
Sharing information about you with other Members and the public
Following information will be shared with other Members:
- Information about you, such as your username and name and other profile information;
- Information about how you have interacted with the services, such as information that will help other Sportifico Members to understand your connections with other members using the services. Also content you post or send will be shared with other Members.
We use information and content that you and other Members provide to us to conduct research and development for the improvement of our Services in order to provide you and other Members with a better, more intuitive experience and drive membership growth and engagement on our Services and to help connect sport professionals to career opportunity.
Sharing Information with Third Parties
You can search for Coaches and Players. We use personal information from our Services, including Member profiles to inform and refine our search service.
If you participate in TeamMates, share content and send messages you should be aware that any information you choose to disclose using these services can be read, collected, and used by other Members from that TeamMates group. We are not responsible for the information you choose to submit in TeamMates. However, others may have copied and used the information that you shared.
Compliance with Legal Process and Other Disclosures
It is possible that we may need to disclose personal information, profile information, or information about your activities as a Member or Visitor when required by law, whether in Serbia or other jurisdictions, when it is necessary to (1) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies; (2) enforce the Terms of Services, investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, or protect the security or integrity of our Service; or (3) exercise or protect the rights, property, or safety of Sportifico, our Members, personnel, or others.

Data Processing Outside Your Country
We may transfer your information and process it outside your country of residence, wherever Sportifico, its affiliates and service providers operate.
Rights to Access, Correct or Delete Your Information, and Closing Your Account
You have a right to (1) access, modify, correct, or delete your personal information controlled by Sportifico regarding your profile, (2) change or remove your content, and (3) deactivate or delete your account. You can request your personal information that is not viewable on your profile or readily accessible to you (for example, your IP access logs) through Sportifico‘s Help Center.
We retain the personal information you provide while your account is in existence or as needed to provide you services. If you want to deactivate your Sportifico account, your profile will no longer be visible to other users on the network. They would not be able to find you on the platform or mobile applications, to send you a message or to contribute your profile in any way. All data previously submitted to the profile, such as posts, basic information, photos, messages or any other data would not be deleted and they will be remembered on our servers. When you want to reactivate your account you need to request activation mail. Clicking on activation link in this activation mail makes your Sportifico account active again.
If you delete your account, your information will generally be removed from the Service within 10 business days. We generally delete information and will de-personalize any logs or other backup information through the deletion process within 10 business days of account closure, except as noted below. If you ask to delete your account, you will have up to 5 business days to restore your account before we delete your information from our servers. During this period of time, your account will not be visible to other Members.
Please note that information you have shared with others (for example, through messages, TeamMates, or content sharing) or that others have copied may also remain visible after you have closed your account or deleted the information from your own profile. TeamMates content associated with closed accounts will show as coming from an inactive user, with their last profile photo and name shown. In addition, you may not be able to access, correct, or eliminate any information about you that other Members copied or exported out of our Services, because this information may not be in our control. Your public profile may be displayed in search engine results until the search engine refreshes its cache and index.
Our Customer Service may retain information for as long as is necessary to provide support-related reporting and trend analysis only, but we generally delete or de-personalize closed account data, except in the case of our plugin impression data (i.e., the information that you visited on sites carrying our social plugin, but which you did not click on), which we de-personalize within 7 days (although we do maintain 30 days worth of webserver logs for security, debugging, and site stability purposes only) by creating aggregate data sets that cannot be traced back to individuals.
Security of your data
We have implemented security safeguards designed to protect the personal information that you provide in accordance with industry standards. Access to your data on our Services is password-protected, and all transactional data is protected by SSL encryption when it is exchanged between your web browser and the Services. We also offer secure https access to the app.sportifico.com website. To protect any data you store on our servers, we also regularly monitor our system for possible vulnerabilities and attacks, and we use a tier-one secured-access data center. However, since the Internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us. There is no guarantee that information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. It is your responsibility to protect the security of your login information. Please note that emails, instant messaging, and similar means of communication with other Members are not encrypted, and we strongly advise you not to communicate any confidential information through these means. Please help keep your account safe by using a strong password.
