SportyTrader presents its data protection charter. We take the protection of the data of the users of our websites and mobile applications very seriously. SportyTrader respects everyone's concerns on this issue. In this charter ("Data Protection Charter"), we describe our practices and commitments.
This charter presents the commitments we make for the protection of personal data.
This charter applies in addition to our general terms and conditions.
How is personal information collected?
Find below all the information relating to the management of the data that we collect.
Description of the information you decide to send us
We may collect information, including personal data, directly from you if you choose to provide it to us. For example, you can provide us with your name and contact details (such as an email address), date of birth or other such details when you subscribe to our newsletters.
You may also choose to provide personal information about yourself when you register for a forum or other service that requests such details. In forums that are freely accessible by our community, please be aware that the information you post in these forums may be viewed by anyone who visits our sites or applications. We therefore advise you to avoid publishing sensitive personal data that you would not wish to be publicly accessible.
Description of the information automatically transmitted when you connect to one of our sites or applications
When you access our sites, we and our third party partners may automatically collect certain information about your visit using tools such as cookies, web beacons and other similar technologies. Information collected automatically when you visit the site may include your IP address, operating system characteristics, information about your browser and system settings, data about the computer or mobile device you use to access the site.
We may also collect unique session identifiers and clickstream data on our websites (this shows the page by page path you take when browsing our sites). We, or our third party partners, may combine the information each automatically collects with other information about you, including information you choose to provide to us.
Cookies are text files that websites and other online services use to store information collected about users. They record data that will be sent back to the website by your browser the next time you visit the site or when you move from one page to another within the site. Certain cookies are indispensable for you to be able to make optimal use of a website.

Data Retention and Access to Information
We will only keep your personal data for as long as it is necessary for the purposes for which it was kept.
For example, to enable you to use our websites and products or to provide you with services.
In some cases, we may retain data longer to comply with applicable laws (including those regarding record retention), to resolve disputes with parties, and for any other reason necessary to conduct our business.
We respect your control over your information and, upon request, we will endeavour to confirm your identity and whether we hold or process information we have collected from you.
You also have the right to change or update inaccurate or incomplete personal information, to request the deletion of your personal information or to request that we no longer use it.
In some circumstances, we may not be able to respond to your request, for example if it interferes with our regulatory obligations, affects legal matters, if we cannot verify your identity, or if it involves disproportionate cost or effort, but in all cases we will respond to your request within a reasonable time and provide you with an explanation. To send us such a request, please email us at privacy (at) sportytrader.com.
How we protect your personal information
We attach great importance to data protection. Accordingly, administrative, technical and physical safeguards are in place to protect the personal data you provide against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use.
