Privacy policy

Updated December 11, 2022
Overview ("SoFIFA", "we", "us" or "our") is committed to protecting the privacy of personal information (i.e., any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person) who visit the website and SoFIFA mobile software application (collectively, the "Site") and use the services available thereon (the "Services"). Amendments to this Privacy Policy will be posted to the Site and Services and will be effective when posted. Your continued use of the Site and Services following the posting of any amendment to this Privacy Policy shall constitute your acceptance of such modification.

Consent and Information Collection and Use

When you register as a user of our Site and Services, we ask for personal information that will be used to activate your account, provide the Services to you, communicate with you about your account status, and for other purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. We may require your name, email address, and additional information about you to provide the Services or be disclosed by you during your use of the Services. You will also be asked to create a username and private password, which will become part of your account information.

By providing personal information to us and retaining us to provide you with the Services, you voluntarily consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of such personal information as specified in this Privacy Policy. The legal bases for our processing of personal data are primarily that the processing is necessary for providing the Services and that the processing is carried out in our legitimate interests, which are further explained below. Without limiting the preceding, we may ask you to consent when we collect, use, or disclose your personal information in specific circumstances.

We take steps designed to ensure that only those employees who need access to your personal information to fulfill their employment duties will have access to it. We may use and disclose your personal or account information for the following purposes:

When we disclose your personal information to third parties, we take reasonable measures to ensure that the rules outlined in this Privacy Policy are complied with and that these third parties provide sufficient guarantees to implement appropriate technical and organizational measures.

Your personal information may be stored and processed in any country where we have facilities or engage third-party service providers. By using the Services, you consent to transfer information to countries outside your residence, which may have different data protection rules than your country. While such information is outside of the United States, it is subject to the laws of the country in which it is held and may be subject to disclosure to the governments, courts or law enforcement, or regulatory agencies of such other country, under the laws of such country. However, our practices regarding your personal information will at all times continue to be governed by this Privacy Policy, and, if applicable, we will comply with the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") requirements providing adequate protection for the transfer of personal information from the EU/EEA to the third country.

We occasionally communicate with you regarding our products, services, news, and events. You have the option not to receive this information. We provide an opt-out function within all email communications of this nature or will cease to communicate with you if you contact us and tell us not to communicate this information to you. The only kind of these communications that you may not "opt out" of are those required to communicate announcements related to the Services, including information specific to your Account, planned Services suspensions, and outages. We will minimize this type of communication with you.

Rights to Your Information

You can access and edit your information anytime through the web interface provided as part of the Services. On written request and subject to proof of identity, you may access the personal information that we hold, use or communicate and ask that any necessary corrections be made, where applicable, as authorized or required by law. However, to ensure that the personal information we maintain about you is accurate and up to date, please inform us immediately of any change in your personal information by mail or e-mail.

Under the GDPR, you may be entitled to additional rights, including:

  1. the right to withdraw consent to processing where consent is the basis of processing;
  2. the right to access your personal information and certain other supplementary information under certain conditions;
  3. the right to object to unlawful data processing under certain conditions;
  4. the right to the erasure of personal information about you under certain conditions;
  5. the right to demand that we restrict processing of your personal information, under certain conditions, if you believe we have exceeded the legitimate basis for processing, the processing is no longer necessary, are processing, or accept your personal information is inaccurate;
  6. the right to data portability of personal information concerning you that you provided us in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format under certain conditions;
  7. the proper object to decisions being taken by automated means which produce legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affect you under certain conditions;
  8. the right to complain to data protection authorities.

Aggregated Data

We may also use your personal information to generate Aggregated Data for internal use and for sharing with others on a selective basis. "Aggregated Data" means records that have been stripped of information potentially identifying users and which have been manipulated or combined to provide generalized, anonymous information. Your identity and personal information will be kept anonymous in Aggregated Data.

We use cookies and log files to track user information. Cookies are small amounts of data transferred to your web browser by a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive.

Third Parties' & Interest-Based Ads

We do not control third parties' collection or use of your information to serve interest-based advertising. However, these third parties may provide you with ways to choose not to have your information collected or used in this way.

Change of Ownership or Business Transition

In case of a change of ownership or other business transition, such as a merger, acquisition, or sale of our assets, your information may be transferred per applicable privacy laws.

Security and Retention

We will strive to prevent unauthorized access to your personal information. However, no data transmission over the Internet, by a wireless device, or over the air is guaranteed 100% secure. We have implemented and maintained reasonable security procedures and practices (based on the nature of the information we collect) to protect that information from unauthorized disclosure. We will continue to enhance security procedures as new technologies and designs become available.
We strongly recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone.

Please remember that you control what personal information you provide while using the Site and Services. Ultimately, you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your identification, passwords, and any personal information in your possession for the Site and Services use. Always be careful and responsible regarding your personal information. We are not responsible for, and cannot control, the use by others of any information you provide. It would be best if you use caution in selecting the personal information you provide to others through the Site or Services.
Similarly, we cannot assume any responsibility for the content of any personal information or other information which you receive from other users through the Site or Services, and you release us from any liability in connection with the contents of any personal data or additional information which you may receive using the Site or Services. We cannot guarantee or assume any responsibility for verifying the accuracy of any third party's personal information or other information. You release us from any liability in connection with using such personal information or additional information of others.

We will maintain your personal information for as long as needed or as required by applicable laws, regulations, or government orders.
