We protect your personal information and will only provide it to third parties: (1) with your consent; (2) where it is necessary to carry out your instructions and requests; (3) as reasonably necessary in order to provide our features and functionality to you; (4) where it is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the Sportifico is subject; (5) where it is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the Sportifico or by a third party, where such interests are not overridden by your fundamental rights and freedoms which require protection of personal data or (6) as necessary to enforce our Terms of Use or protect the rights, property, safety or other vital interests of Sportifico, our Members and Visitors, other natural persons  and the public.

We have implemented appropriate security safeguards designed to protect your information in accordance with industry standards.

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.

User Communications

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:

Service Development

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

We do not rent or sell personal information that you have posted on our Services, except as described in this Privacy Policy. We will not disclose personal information that is published to your profile or generated through engagement with our other services, such as TeamMates, except to carry out your instructions and requests or unless we have a good faith belief that disclosure is permitted by law or is reasonably necessary to: (1) comply with a legal obligation to which the Sportifico is subject, including, but not limited to, civil and criminal subpoenas, court orders or other compulsory disclosures; (2) enforce this Privacy Policy or our Terms of Service; (3) respond to claims of a violation of the rights of third parties; (4) respond to Member service inquiries; (5) protect  legitimate interests pursued by the Sportifico or by a third party, where such interests are not overridden by your fundamental rights and freedoms which require protection of personal data or (6) protect the rights, property, safety or other vital interest of Sportifico, our Services, our Members and Visitors, other natural persons  and the public.

You can search for Coaches and Players. We use personal information from our Services, including Member profiles to inform and refine our search service.

TeamMates

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. We attempt to notify Members about legal demands for their personal information when appropriate in our judgment, unless prohibited by law or court order.

Disclosures to Others as the Result of a Change in Control or Sale of Sportifico LLC

We may also disclose your personal information to a third party as part of a sale of the assets of Sportifico LLC a subsidiary, or division, or as the result of a change in control of the company or one of its affiliates, or in preparation for any of these events. Any third party to which we transfers or sells our assets will have the right to continue to use the personal and other information that you provide to us in the manner set out in this Privacy Policy.

Service Providers – Processors

We may employ third party companies (‘’Processors’’) and individuals to facilitate our Services (e.g. maintenance, analysis, audit, marketing and development). These Processors have limited access to your information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated to Sportifico not to disclose or use it for other purposes. These Processors will implement appropriate technical and organizational measures in such a manner that processing will meet the requirements of this Privacy Policy and ensure the protection of the rights of the data subject.

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.

Also we may retain your personal information even after you have deactivated your account if retention is reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations, or enforce this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service.

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.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make significant changes in the way we treat your personal information, or to the Privacy Policy, we will provide notice to you on the Services or by some other means, such as email. Please review the changes carefully. If you agree to the changes, simply continue to use our Services. If you object to any of the changes to our terms and you no longer wish to use our Services, you may close your account. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Policy applies to all information that we have about you and your account. Using our Services after a notice of changes has been communicated to you or published on our Services shall constitute consent to the changed terms or practices.
