This policy explains how we collect and protect the information that we capture from users via our digital properties. This policy also explains your choices regarding that use and how you may restrict our access to your personal information.
This policy only applies to Modern Sports Group (MSG) properties and services. MSG develops and maintains digital properties for many customers (our “clients”). This policy does not govern how our clients use user data nor does MSG have the legal right to govern our clients.
1. INFORMATION COLLECTION
MSG gathers the following types of information about users when they access and use MSG Services.
A. Information you voluntarily provide. This information includes:
Personlization by updating preferences,
SMS or Email Registration
Contests and Games
Registration for Client Events such as Sports Camps
Your use of these features is voluntary, but if you do use one of these features, you consent to MSG’s collection of the following information:
Account Set-Up Information: MSG will collect certain information to set up an account for you via one of our properties, such as your name, email address, mailing address, phone number(s), and the username and password you create.
Social Media Information: If you use Facebook or another third party social network site to login to any MSG properties, MSG will collect information that you chose to provide to us (for example your Facebook profile information).
B. Minor’s Information. MSG offers certain services to its clients specifically geared towards children. In accordance with COPPA, MSG does not knowingly collect or store any personal information about children under the age of 13, other than certain limited information provided by a child’s parent or authorized guardian.
We do not ask children to disclose more information than is necessary for them to participate in a particular activity, and we take steps to prevent children from disclosing more information than is necessary to participate in those activities.
Changes in Guidelines: These children’s guidelines have been developed with the recognition that Internet technology evolves rapidly and that underlying business models are still not established. Accordingly, guidelines are subject to change. In the unlikely event of such changes they will be posted on this page. If the changes represent a material departure from our current practice with respect to the use of children’s personal information, the changes will be posted on this page thirty (30) days prior to taking effect and will not affect children’s personal information previously collected.
C. Information Collected From You Automatically. MSG uses various Internet technologies to manage and track use of the MSG Services. Non-personal information that we collect using these technologies may be combined with the personal information that you may voluntarily provide us when using certain specific services.
Device Information: We may collect non-personal information about the computer, mobile device, or other device you use to access the MSG Services, such as your computer’s unique IP address, geolocation information, unique device identifiers, browser type, browser language and other transactional information.
Cookies, Beacons, Local Storage and Other Similar Technologies: MSG uses “cookies,” Web beacons, HTML5 local storage, and other similar technologies. These technologies allow us to manage access to and use of the MSG services, recognize users and provide personalization, and help us to understand how users engaged with MSG products. You will not be able to access certain areas of our websites if your computer does not accept cookies from us. We do not respond to browser-based “do not track” signals.
Location Information: Some of our mobile applications can deliver content based on your current location if you choose to enable that feature of the app. If you enable the location-based feature, your current location will be stored locally on your device, which will then be used by the app. If you do not enable the location-based service, or if an app does not have that feature, the app will not transmit to us, and we will not collect or store location information.
D. Information Collected by Third Parties Some of the services and advertisements included in MSG products, including on the websites we create and maintain for our clients and within our mobile apps, are delivered or served by third-party companies. These companies may place or recognize cookies, Web beacons, or other technology to track certain non-personal information about our website users.
2. HOW WE USE INFORMATION
MSG uses the data we collect from you for the following purposes:
We use the information collected from our users to provide you with the products or services you voluntarily signed up for, such as:
Enabling you to participate in features such as surveys or contests
Providing you with electronic newsletters or text messages containing special offers or promotional materials
Customizing the content you see when visiting a MSG website
In addition, MSG uses the information you provide to improve the services we offer, enhance the experience users have using our services, and to communicate with users in case of any issues.
Statistical Analysis: We perform statistical, demographic and marketing analyses of users of MSG products and their subscribing and purchasing patterns for product development purposes and to generally inform advertisers about the nature of our subscriber base.
Credit Card Data: MSG does not store any of your credit card data on our servers. The data is encrypted and securely stored by an independent company, Stripe, which provides payment processing services for MSG.

Participation: When you participate in a contest, sweepstakes, or promotion, the information you provide made be shared with a third-party sponsor of the contest, sweepstakes, or promotion.

Links to Third Party Sites: MSG may include links that direct you to other websites or services whose privacy practices may differ from ours. Once you access that website or other service, your information is governed by their privacy policies, not this one.
4. PROTECTING YOUR INFORMATION
