Our Services instantly connect users across the internet and enable information sharing, which includes images, videos and users generated content.
Irrespective of which country you live in, you authorize us to transfer, store, and use your information in the United States, Ireland, and any other country where we operate. In some of these countries, the privacy and data protection laws and rules regarding when government authorities may access data may vary from those in the country where you live.
Information Collection and Use
Basic Account Information: If you choose to create a SportsJaw account, you must provide us with some personal information, such as your name, username, password, email address, or phone number. On SportsJaw, your name and username are listed publicly, including on your profile page and in search results, and you can use either your real name or a pseudonym. You can create and manage multiple SportsJaw accounts.
Contact Information: You may use your contact information, such as your email address or phone number, to customize your account or enable certain account features, for example, for profile page. If you provide us with your phone number, you agree to receive text messages to that number from us. We may use your contact information to send you information about our Services, to market to you, to help prevent spam, fraud, or abuse, and to help others find your account, including through third-party services and client applications. You may update your account settings for email and mobile notifications. You may also unsubscribe from a notification by following the instructions contained within the notification or the instructions on our website. Your Discoverability privacy settings control whether others can find you on SportsJaw by your email address or phone number.
Additional Information: You may choose to provide us with additional information to help improve and personalize your experience across our Services. For example, you may choose to upload and sync your address book so that we can help you find and connect with users you know or help other users find and connect with you. We may later tailor content, such as making suggestions or showing user accounts and posts for you and other users, based on imported address book contacts. You can delete your imported address book contacts at any time by visiting your Contacts Dashboard in your privacy settings. If you email us, we may keep your message, email address and contact information to respond to your request. If you connect your account on our Services to your account on another service in order to cross-post between our Services and that service, the other service may send us your registration or profile information on that service and other information that you authorize. This information enables cross-posting, helps us improve the Services, and is deleted from our Services within a few weeks of your disconnecting from our Services your account on the other service.
Posts, Following, Lists, Profile, and other Public Information: SportsJaw is primarily designed to help you share information with other sports fans around the world. Most of the information you provide us through SportsJaw is information you are asking us to make public. You may provide us with profile information to make public on SportsJaw, such as a short biography, your location, your website, date of birth, or a picture. Additionally, your public information includes the messages or posts that you send out via SportsJaw Chatter. SportsJaw broadly and instantly disseminates your public information to a wide range of platforms, users, customers, and services, including search engines, developers, and publishers that integrate SportsJaw content into their services, and organizations such as universities, public health agencies, and market research firms that analyze the information for trends and insights. When you share information or content like photos, videos, and links via the Services, you should think carefully about what you are making public. We may use this information to make inferences, like what topics you may be interested in.
Direct Messages and Non-Public Communications: We provide certain features that allow you to communicate more privately. For example, you can use Direct Messages to have private conversations with other SportsJaw users or groups. When you privately communicate with others through our Services, such as by sending and receiving Direct Messages, we will store and process your communications, and information related to them. Location Information: We may receive information about your location. For example, you may choose to publish your location in your posts and in your SportsJaw profile. You may also tell us your location when you set your trend location on SportsJaw.com. We may also determine location by using other data from your device, such as precise location information from GPS, information about wireless networks or cell towers near your mobile device, or your IP address. We may use and store information about your location to provide features of our Services.
Widget Data: We may tailor the Services for you based on your visits to third-party websites that integrate SportsJaw buttons or widgets. When these websites first load our buttons or widgets for display, we receive Log Data that includes the web page you visited and a cookie that identifies your browser (“Widget Data”). Commerce Services: You may provide your payment information, including your credit or debit card number, card expiration date, CVV code, and billing address (collectively, “Payment Information”), along with your shipping address, to complete a commerce transaction through our Services. To facilitate future purchases, we store your Payment Information (excluding CVV code) and shipping address, which you can remove from your account at any time using your account settings. We consider your Payment Information and shipping address private and do not make such information public. To facilitate order fulfillment, we collect and store information created by your purchases made through our Services (“Transaction Data”). Transaction Data may include the merchant’s name and the date, time, and amount of the transaction.
Third-Parties and Affiliates: We may receive information about you from third parties, such as other SportsJaw users, partners (including ad partners), or affiliates. For example, other users may share or disclose information about you, such as when they mention you, share a photo of you, or tag you in a photo. Our ad partners and affiliates may share information with us such as a browser cookie ID, mobile device ID, or cryptographic hash of a common account identifier (such as an email address), as well as demographic or interest data and content viewed or actions taken on a website or app. Our ad partners, particularly our advertisers, may enable us to collect similar information directly from their website or app by integrating our advertising technology. User Consent or Direction: We may share or disclose your information at your direction, such as when you authorize a third-party web client or application to access your account or when you direct us to share your feedback with a business. When you use Digits by SportsJaw to sign up for or log in to a third-party application, you are directing us to share your contact information, such as your phone number, with that application. If you’ve shared information, like Direct Messages or protected Tweets, with another user who accesses SportsJaw through a third-party service, keep in mind that the information may be shared with the third-party service.
Accessing and Modifying Your Personal Information
If you are a registered user of our Services, we provide you with tools and account setting to access, correct, delete, or modify the personal information you provided to us and associated with your account.

Absent a separate arrangement between you and us to extend your deactivation period, after 30 days, we begin the process of deleting your account from our systems, which can take up to a week.
