Privacy Statement

Introduction


Last revised on June 12, 2014


Our mission is to connect the world’s sport devotees to activate an exclusive and elevated sport experience. Our registered users (“Members”) share their sport identities, engage with their network, exchange sport insights, post and view relevant content, and find sport opportunities. Content on some of our services is also visible to unregistered viewers (“Visitors”).

We believe that our services allow our Members to effectively compete and achieve their full potential in sports. The cornerstone of our business is to focus on our Members first.

We protect your personal information using industry-standard safeguards. We may share your information with your consent or as required by law as detailed in this policy, and we will always let you know when we make significant changes to this Privacy Policy.

Maintaining your trust is our top priority, so we adhere to the following principles to protect your privacy:

1. 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; (3) as reasonably necessary in order to provide our features and functionality to you; (4) when we reasonably believe it is required by law, subpoena or other legal process; or (5) as necessary to enforce our User Agreement or protect the rights, property, or safety of Biglig Medias, its Members and Visitors, and the public.

2. We have implemented appropriate security safeguards designed to protect your information in accordance with industry standards. This Privacy Policy applies to biglig.com and the Biglig mobile application, and all other Biglig websites, apps, developer platforms and other products and services (collectively “Biglig” or the “Services”). We may modify this Privacy Policy from time to time, and if we make material changes to it, we will provide notice through our Service, or by other means so that you may review the changes before you continue to use Biglig. If you object to any changes, you may close your account. Continuing to use Biglig after we publish or communicate a notice about any changes to this Privacy Policy means that you are consenting to the changes.


What Information We Collect Data Controller

Our Privacy Policy applies to any Member or Visitor. The personal information provided to or gathered by Biglig is controlled by Biglig Medias, 600 De Maisonneuve Ouest, Montreal (Quebec) Canada. If you have any concern about providing information to us or having such information displayed on the Biglig services or otherwise used in any manner permitted in this Privacy Policy and the User Agreement (together also referred to as Biglig’s Terms of Service), you should not become a Member of Biglig, visit our websites, apps or otherwise use our Services. If you have already registered, you can close your account. We collect your personal information in the following ways:

Registration

When you create an account with us, you provide us with information (including your name, zip / postal code, email address, and password) that we use to offer you a personalized, relevant experience on Biglig. To create an account on Biglig, you must provide us with at least your name, zip / postal code, email address and/or mobile number, and a password. You can choose to provide further information about yourself during the registration process. We use this information to provide you with more customized services like language-specific profile pages, updates, content, more relevant ads, and more valuable sport opportunities, and it may appear on your Biglig profile that is viewable by others. You understand that, by creating an account, Biglig and others will be able to identify you by your Biglig profile, and you allow Biglig to use this information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and our User Agreement. We may also ask for your credit card details if you purchase certain Biglig services.


Profile Information

You can add your details to your sport profile. A complete sport profile helps you to be found by other people for sport opportunities. It also means we can show you relevant ads and content.

After you create an account, you may choose to provide additional information on your Biglig profile, such as descriptions of your skills, sport experience and certifications. Please do not provide personal information you would not want to be public. We may use and share information you provide in your profile in accordance with this Privacy Policy and our User Agreement.


Address Book and Other Services That Sync with Biglig

We collect information when you sync non-LinkedIn Biglig content – like your email address book, mobile device contacts, or calendar – with your account. We use this information to improve your experience and allow you and your network to be better connected. You can remove your address book and any other synced information whenever you'd like. You may use the Biglig contacts importer (or other similar mechanisms provided by Biglig) to upload individual contacts or your entire address book into Biglig.

Biglig stores this information and uses it to help you manage and leverage your contacts. We also use this information to enhance your Biglig experience by helping you to grow your network by: identifying your contacts already on Biglig; providing a template to send invitations to your contacts that have not registered with Biglig; and suggesting people you may know but who may not be in your Biglig contacts. Biglig may also use this information to show you and other Members that you share the same uploaded contacts who may or may not be Members. Please note that when you send an invitation to connect to another individual (a “connection”), that person may have access to your email address or, for SMS invitations, mobile number because it is displayed in the invitation. LinkedIn Biglig will also remind you of pending invitations. Biglig makes other tools available to sync information with Biglig, and may also develop additional features that allow Members to use their Biglig account in conjunction with other third-party services. For example, Biglig’s mobile applications may allow you to sync your device’s calendar, email and/or contacts apps with Biglig to show you the Biglig profiles of meeting attendees, email correspondents and/or your contacts. Another example are software tools that allow you to see Biglig and other public social media information about the people you email or meet with and leverage Biglig to help you gain insights from and grow your network. If you grant these products (mobile applications or other Biglig services that sync external email and calendar services) permission to access your email and calendar accounts, they will access and may store some of your email header and calendar history information in order to match it to Biglig and other public social media profiles. Biglig’s products that sync with external email services may also temporarily cache message content for performance reasons, in a way that is unreadable by Biglig and its service providers. Any information that you upload or sync with Biglig is covered by the User Agreement and this Privacy Policy. You can remove your information at your convenience using the features Biglig makes available or in accordance with Section 3. You can remove your address book and any other synced information at any time.


Customer Service

When you contact our Help Center, we collect information to respond to your questions and better serve you. When you contact our customer support services (e.g. on Biglig’s Help Center), we collect information that helps us categorize your question, respond to it, and, if applicable, investigate any breach of our User Agreement or this Privacy Policy. We also use this information to track potential problems and trends and customize our support responses to better serve you.


Using the Biglig Sites and Applications

We collect information when you visit Biglig, use our mobile applications, and interact with advertising on Biglig. We collect information when you use (whether as a Member or a Visitor) the Biglig websites, applications (for example, Biglig for iPhone or Android), Biglig platform technology (such as “Share on Biglig” plugins for publishers) or other Services. For example, we collect information when you view or click on ads, import your address book, join and participate in teams, participate in polls, install a Biglig mobile application and offer rewards on Biglig. If you are logged in on Biglig.com or another Service or a Biglig cookie on your device identifies you, your usage information and the log data described in later section of this policy, such as your IP address, will be associated with your account. Even if you’re not logged into a Service, we log information about devices used to access our Services, including IP address.


Using Third-Party Services and Visiting Third-Party Sites

We collect information when you use your Biglig account to sign in to other sites or services, and when you view web pages that include Biglig plugins. You can opt out of our collection of plugin impressions anytime. We receive information when you use your Biglig account to log in to a third-party website or application. Also, when you visit a third-party site that embeds Biglig professional plugins (such as “Share on Biglig” for publishers) we receive information that those pages have loaded in your web browser. If you are logged in as a Member when you visit sites with Biglig plugins, we use this information to recommend tailored content to you. Biglig will use this information to personalize the Biglig-provided functionality on third-party sites, including providing you insights from your Biglig network and allowing you to share information with your network (1st and 2nd degree connection on Biglig). Users wishing to disable this personalization may opt out. Biglig’s retention of this data is addressed in a later section.

We do not use this information for advertising. Biglig may provide reports containing aggregated impression information to companies hosting Biglig plugins and similar technologies to help them measure Biglig-generated traffic to their websites. You can opt out of Biglig using your impression data.


Cookies

We use cookies to help personalize your Biglig experience and show you relevant ads. We use cookies and similar technologies, including mobile application identifiers, to help us recognize you across different Services, improve your Biglig experience, increase security, measure use and effectiveness of our Services, and serve advertising. You can control cookies through your browser settings and other tools. For more information, including the types of cookies found on Biglig, please read Biglig’s Cookie Policy.

By visiting Biglig, you consent to the placement of cookies and beacons in your browser and HTML-based emails in accordance with this Privacy Policy and Biglig’s Cookie Policy.


Advertising Technologies and Web Beacons

We target ads to you on and off Biglig, based on information you included in your profile and your use of Biglig.

We target ads to Members and Visitors both on and off Biglig through a variety of ad networks and ad exchanges, using:

  • Advertising technologies like web beacons, pixels, ad tags, cookies, and mobile identifiers as permitted by mobile platforms both on and off Biglig;
  • Information from a Member’s profile (for example, using favorite sports, location, gender, age or quantity of children);
  • Your use of Biglig (for example, your Biglig search history, the sports practiced by you or your children, who you follow or is following you) or clicking on a Biglig ad;
  • Information from advertising partners which we use to help deliver ads more relevant to you.

We do not share personally identifiable information with any third-party advertiser or ad network, although your profile is visible to other Members and through public search depending on your settings. Biglig may show you sponsored content in your Network Update Stream (NUS), which will be designated as sponsored content and will behave like other NUS updates.

If you take social action (for example, if you “like or “comment” on the sponsored content), your action will be seen by your network and other Members who are shown the sponsored content after you have acted on it. Please note that all social actions on Biglig (e.g. liking certain content, following or being followed by others) are public.


Log Files, IP Addresses, and Information About Your Computer and Mobile Device

We collect information from the devices and networks that you use to access Biglig. This information helps us improve and secure our Services. When you visit or leave Biglig sites or apps (whether as a Member or Visitor) by clicking a hyperlink or when you view a plugin on a third-party site, we automatically receive the URL of the site from which you came or the one to which you are directed. Also, advertisers receive the URL of the page that you are on when you click an ad on Biglig. We also receive the internet protocol (“IP”) address of your computer or the proxy server that you use to access the web, your computer operating system details, your type of web browser, your mobile device (including your mobile device identifier provided by your mobile device operating system), your mobile operating system (if you are accessing Biglig using a mobile device), and the name of your ISP or your mobile carrier. We may also receive location data passed to us from third-party services or GPS-enabled devices that you have set up, which we use to show you local information (for example the list of nearest parks) on our mobile applications. Most mobile devices allow you to prevent real time location data being sent to Biglig, and of course Biglig will honor your settings. In the case of our Android apps, you will be provided notice of the types of data (e.g. location) that will be sent to us. If you choose to use our app after this notice, we process this data to enable registration or preview product features for you (e.g. parks near you). If you choose not to become a Member, we will delete this information.


Other

We are constantly innovating to improve our Services, which means we may create new ways to collect information on the Services. Biglig is a dynamic, innovative environment, which means we are always seeking to improve the services we offer you. We often introduce new features, some of which may result in the collection of new information. Furthermore, new partnerships or corporate acquisitions may result in new features, and we may potentially collect new types of information.
