Other Important Privacy Information

Third party sites and services. The Service may contain links to other websites and services operated by third parties. These links are not an endorsement of, or representation that we are affiliated with, any third party. We do not control third party websites, applications or services, and are not responsible for their actions. Other websites and services follow different rules regarding their collection, use and sharing of your personal information. We encourage you to read their privacy policies to learn more.

Security practices. The security of your personal information is important to us. We employ a number of organizational, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal information we collect.

If you have a user account for the Service, you are solely responsible for maintaining and protecting the confidentiality of your account username, password and other account information in your possession.

International data use. We are headquartered in the United States and have affiliates and service providers in other countries, and your personal information may be collected, used and stored in the United States or other locations outside of your home country. Privacy laws in the locations where we handle your personal information may not be as protective as the privacy laws in your home country.

Children. The Service is not directed at, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from, anyone under the age of 13. If we learn that personal information of someone under the age of 13 has been submitted to us, we will take appropriate steps to delete it.

Cookie Policy

This Cookie Policy explains how Esports One, Inc. (“Esports One”,“we”, “us” or “our”) uses cookies and similar tracking technologies when you visit our website at www.esports.one, www.Esportspedia.com or any other site to which we post this Cookie Policy (the “Sites”).

What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer when you visit a site. Cookies serve different purposes, like helping us understand how a site is being used, letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences and generally improving your browsing experience.

Who places cookies on my device?

Cookies set by the site you visit are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than us are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality within the site, such as site analytics, advertising and social media features. The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer or device both when it visits the site in question and when it visits certain other sites and/or mobile apps. We do not control how these third parties use your information, which is subject to their own privacy policies. See below for details on use of third party cookies and similar technologies with our Sites.

How long will cookies stay on my device?

The length of time a cookie will stay on your device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies will only stay on your device until you stop browsing. Persistent cookies stay on your browsing device after you have finished browsing until they expire or are deleted.

What other tracking technologies should I know about?

Cookies are not the only way to track visitors to a site or app. Companies use tiny graphics files with unique identifiers called beacons (and also “pixels” or “clear gifs”) to recognize when someone visits its sites. These technologies often depend on cookies to function properly, and so disabling cookies may impair their functioning.
