Network Creators and Third Party Application Developers may also collect additional types of Personal Information, and may use and disclose Personal Information in accordance with their own privacy policies. For each Leaguer Network you use, you should check with the Network Creator regarding its policies governing its collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information. Additionally, for each Third Party Application that you add to your Leaguer Network or your profile, you should check with the Third Party Application Developer regarding its policies goverLeaguer its collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information.
Personal Information You Provide
- Leaguer Member Data
You must register for a Leaguer ID to become a Leaguer Member, sign up for a Leaguer Network, or sign up as a Third Party Application Developer. When you register for a Leaguer ID, you are required to provide certain Personal Information, including your name, email address, date of birth, and a password that you select. You also may create a Leaguer Profile and provide other Personal Information within your Leaguer Profile, such as your gender, city, state, and country, and photo. Your Leaguer profile will also display all of the Leaguer Networks that you belong to. Your Leaguer Profile is only visible to you.
Please be aware that even though your Leaguer Profile is only visible to you, that information, including Personal Information, will still be accessible by Leaguer. Your Leaguer Profile is separate from any additional profile you may create on a Leaguer Network.
When you sign up for a Leaguer Network, you will be asked to sign in to the Leaguer Network with your Leaguer ID. The Personal Information in your Leaguer ID (except for your password) is provided to the Network Creator, regardless of the privacy option you choose for your profile on that particular Leaguer Network. Your date of birth, name and email address from your Leaguer ID is pre-populated into your "My Page" on Leaguer Networks you join and into your Leaguer Profile upon sign-in. Additionally, certain Personal Information (such as your profile photo and any gender or location information) you may have provided in your Leaguer Profile is pre-populated in your My Page when you sign up for any new Leaguer Networks.
The Personal Information in your My Page may be accessed by the Network Creator and all Users who browse the Leaguer Network if both the Leaguer Network and your My Page are public. However, you can change the privacy level for your profile on any Leaguer Network you are a Member of to suit your choice by changing the privacy settings of your My Page in any Leaguer Network. Please note, however, that while the general public or other Leaguer Members cannot view your My Page if you choose to limit who can view your My Page, we, the Network Creator of that particular Leaguer Network and administrators designated by the Network Creator can view this information.
You also may have other opportunities to voluntarily provide Personal Information to us. For example, if you contact us to provide feedback or request support, we collect your email address and other Personal Information that you provide.
- Network Member Data
Network Creators may also request additional Personal Information from Leaguer Members who register for their Leaguer Networks. Certain Personal Information collected from Network Members will be retained in the Network Member's My Page for that Leaguer Network. Network Creators may designate responses to some or all of the questions that they ask their Network Members to respond to as "private." Network Creators may also choose to change the settings on the responses to questions by their Network Members from "private" to "public" at a later date. If requests for additional information are marked "private," they will be viewable only by Leaguer, the Network Creator, and administrators designated by the Network Creator. Network Creators may also designate the Leaguer Networks that they create as private, limiting Network Members to those that they approve or specifically invite. Please note, however, that while the general public cannot view private Leaguer Networks, or your My Page for private Leaguer Networks, we, Network Members of that Leaguer Network, the Network Creator, and administrators designed by the Network Creator can view this information. Additionally, Network Creators may choose to change the designation of a Leaguer Network from "private" to "public" at a later date.
Network Members also have access to Leaguer's Address Book feature. The Address Book feature allows Network Members to input contact information for their friends, whether or not those friends have Leaguer IDs, and to send content share emails and invitations to them. Network Members may use the Address Book feature by entering contact information for their friends manually or, alternatively, retrieving contact information from supported email service providers. To retrieve contact information from a third-party service provider, the Network Member must provide login credentials for the email service provider that he or she has selected. That information is used to retrieve the contact information from the selected third-party service provider and is not retained by Leaguer. If you send out invitations to join a particular Leaguer Network, the contact information that you enter for the friends that you have invited, including information that is imported into, or entered manually into, the Address Book feature, may be accessed by Network Creators and their designated administrators.
- Network Creators
To become a Network Creator, you must register for a Leaguer ID and must create a password. Network Creators must supply the password they have created in order to access certain administrative controls for their Leaguer Networks.
In addition, if you are a Network Creator and choose to purchase premium services or support on Leaguer (e.g., additional storage or bandwidth, or use of a custom second-level domain name), if you do not use our PayPal integration, you must provide your credit card information and billing address. We use this billing information to process your transactions.
Like most web-based services, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser when you use the Leaguer Platform. We may use a variety of methods, including clear GIFs (also known as "web beacons"), and "cookies" to collect this information. The information that we collect with these automated methods may include, for example, your IP address, Leaguer cookie information, a unique device or user ID, browser type, system type, the content and pages that you access on the Leaguer Platform, and the "referring URL" (i.e., the page from which you navigated to the Leaguer Platform).
Websites visited before visiting Leaguer or a Leaguer Network may place Personal Information within the URL of your browser during a visit to that previous website. We may unintentionally collect that information as part of referring URL information that it collects.
A third-party research company, Full Circle Studies (ScorecardResearch) uses web beacons and cookies to collect information about your use of Leaguer. The web beacon and cookie used by ScorecardResearch is unable to identify the user visiting a page, and there is no personally identifiable data transmitted by, or linked to, the web beacon or cookies. You can learn more about ScorecardResearch's privacy practices, and may opt-out from its browser-level tracking, here.
When you send messages, make postings, or otherwise post or transmit any Content within a Leaguer Network on the Leaguer Platform, others who visit or use that Leaguer Network may access any Personal Information within such Content. Within your Network Member settings for each Leaguer Network, accessible at the "Settings" link, you may be able to modify your privacy settings for certain types of Content that you make available on that Leaguer Network. For example, you may be able to specify that your photos, videos, and blog posts will be viewable by anyone, by your "friends" only, or only by you. Please be aware that while the general public or other Leaguer Members cannot view Content that you specify viewable only by you, we, the Network Creator of that particular Leaguer Network, and administrators designated by the Network Creator can view this information. We collect and maintain posts, messages, and other Content that you have posted or transmitted to a Leaguer Network, as well as information about that Content and your interaction with it.
Some of this information, such as your latest activity on the Leaguer Platform or a Leaguer Network, and the most active members of a Leaguer Network, will be made available to Network Creators, and may also be made available to other members of, and visitors to, the Leaguer Platform as well as to Third Party Application Developers.
Because you may voluntarily disclose Personal Information when you post or otherwise transmit Content, please be careful with the information that you choose to disclose.
We do not provide your Personal Information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent. However, please note that if an advertiser asks us to show an advertisement to a certain audience or audience segment and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience that they were trying to reach.

- Leaguer Applications As described in greater detail in the Leaguer Applications Terms, when a Network Member, or the Network Creator of a Leaguer Network of which that Network Member is a part, adds a Third Party Application to his or her Leaguer Network profile, we may disclose certain Personal Information in that Network Member's Leaguer Profile and Leaguer ID, and certain Network Member Data, to the Third Party Application Developer of the Third Party Application. Except when a Third Party Application is added by a Network Creator to the Network Creator's entire Leaguer Network, including to every Network Member's My Page, Network Members and Network Creators may opt-out of having Personal Information from their Leaguer Profile and Leaguer ID shared with Third Party Application Developers, but will be prevented from adding Third Party Applications to their My Page and their Leaguer Network. Additionally, Third Party Applications may require, or may otherwise allow Network Members to provide, other forms of Personal Information to the Third Party Application Developers of such Third Party Applications. Please see the Leaguer Applications Terms for additional information regarding the provision of Personal Information to Third Party Application Developers.
- Legal Requirements We may disclose Personal Information if we have a good-faith belief that doing so is required by a subpoena or other judicial or administrative order or otherwise required by law. Additionally, we may disclose Personal Information where we, in good faith, deem it appropriate or necessary to prevent violation of the Leaguer Terms of Service, or our other agreements; take precautions against liability; protect the rights, property, or safety of Leaguer, any individual, or the general public; maintain and protect the security and integrity of our services or infrastructure; protect ourselves and our services from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; investigate and defend ourselves against third-party claims or allegations; or assist government enforcement agencies.

We will use reasonable efforts to notify registered users of such a transfer (by a posting on our home page, or by email to a Leaguer Member's email address that was provided to us, as chosen by us in our discretion).
We use industry standard security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of Personal Information under our control. Although we make good faith efforts to maintain the security of such Personal Information, we cannot guarantee that it will remain free from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, or alteration.

We do not assume any liability to third parties whose information you include in your Address Book, or which you post or transmit in any Content on a Leaguer Network. To help maintain the security of your Leaguer ID, please keep your password secure.
If we learn of a security breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using the Leaguer Platform or providing Personal Information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the Leaguer Platform.
