Why do we collect data?
We collect your data to allow you to create your profile and membership with Challenge Football. We need to collect certain data to allow the website to work with your profile to give you the intended service. For example, we require your age as the challenges have a rating for your score based on your age.
Some of the data you may provide is optional. This allows you to decide how much information you would like to disclose on your profile, depending on the experience you would like from the website.
You can add, change, review and delete the data you have provided in the profile settings of your account. Challenge Football is not responsible for any fraudulent or incorrect information provided by its members in their profiles.
We will also collect data of your behaviour and interactions with the site. This includes any communications you make through the website and any media or content that may be uploaded or shared on the site. We use this as feedback to develop the site to continue to improve the user experience. We may also use this data to understand if there are any characteristics, e.g. age, nationality, that are common amongst members to allow Challenge football to market its services efficiently.
What data do we collect?
To be able to provide the service that Challenge Football intends to, it is necessary for us to collect:
- Username (this does NOT need to include your name if you would not like to)
- E-mail address
- An additional e-mail address of a legal parent/guardian if the registering player is under 13
- Challenge scores
You may provide additional data such as:
- Videos uploaded
- Favourite Club
- Favourite player
- Preferred foot
- Members you follow/request to follow
- Members you allow to follow you
- Videos you watch and/or 'like'
How will we use your information?
The mandatory information required to register is provided in your legitimate interest to have a profile that enables you to use and experience the service. This information is used for the sole purpose of creating your own profile and interacting with the site and its members for the services provided.
If you are under the age of 13 upon registration, then you will need to have consent from a legal parent/guardian. You will be required to provide an e-mail address for your legal parent/guardian who will then be required to consent to your registration to Challenge Football.
We will not provide any third-party companies with your information for any reason. If we have reason to provide your information to a third party we will contact you to obtain your consent before any information is provided.
Your data may also be used in combination with that of other members so that Challenge Football can do internal research to understand the member experience and preferences. This allows Challenge Football to then develop the service to enhance the user experience.
Who collects and holds your data?
Your data is collected by the Challenge Football application and will be held within its accounts which allows the information to be stored and saved on your profile; otherwise it would disappear every time you log out.
Challenge Football uses industry-standard programming techniques to secure all the data in the database and performs tests to make sure the security is continuing to protect all the data. This allows Challenge Football to make any upgrades or changes to security if we ever doubt the safety of the data stored.
We will hold data on other people following or requesting to follow you and when they interact with your content, including likes on videos or comments.
Your data will be stored within the database from the moment your register as a member and will remain for the full-time you have an account until you either turn 16 or decide to delete your account. Your data will be held for no more than 48 hours from your 16th birthday or the time of Challenge Football receiving your request to delete your account.
