Privacy Statement

The privacy of our users is of paramount importance to The Esports Advocate (TEA); the statement(s) below detail what personal information we collect and how we will use it.   

Collection of Personal information 

For the purposes of analytics we may collect and use personal information related to how you use our publication including what articles you read and the amount of time you spend on the site; your geographical location and platform while visiting the site; your browser type, any transactions while at our website, and other related information transmitted through your browser and/or device used to peruse the website.

Use of Personal Information

TEA may use your personal information to administer the website, set and save preferences on the website for ease of use, and enable access to new and existing website features. 

We may also collect information to supply you with services or products you purchase through the website, collect payments from you for products/services you have purchased and send marketing materials with your express permission. Information collected could include your real name, address, and email. 

If TEA discloses your personal information to third-party they are obligated to use that personal information in accordance with the terms of this privacy statement.

TEA may also disclose your personal information as required by law, related to any legal proceedings, and to establish, exercise, or defend its legal rights.

Securing your data

TEA will take reasonable precautions to prevent the loss, misuse, or alteration of your personal information. All personal information you provide will be stored on our servers.

Consent

You imply consent when you provide us with personal information in order to facilitate a transaction, sign up for services, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery, or return a purchase. As it relates to our marketing efforts, we will ask for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to decline consent. You may withdraw your consent for us to contact you by contacting us at info@esportsadvocate.net.

Disclosures

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our terms of service. In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use, and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in/ have facilities located in a different jurisdiction than TEA/you. Electing to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider,  makes your information become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
