When you interact with our App, we collect information that, alone or in combination with other information, could be used to identify you (“Personal Data”). We only process your personal data to the extent that it is necessary and appropriate to the purposes for which it is collected. We make our best efforts to ensure that your personal data is secure, accurate and, where necessary, updated with regard to the purposes of the processing, taking all reasonable steps to delete, anonymize, or correct it in case of inaccuracy. It is your responsibility to update any and all personal identifiable information provided for use of our Services.

Information we receive from your use of our services

When you use our Services, we may request your permission in order to track certain data about your visits to and usage of our Services to improve, customize, and optimize our Services, and comply with our legal obligations. The information (“log data'') is generated automatically by the App and automatically logged in our systems.

We may use this information to analyze trends, gather demographic information about our user base, promote our Services, perform research, provide technical and customer support, inform our product development efforts, comply with our legal obligations, address disputes, and prevent our Services from being used to commit harmful or unlawful activities, including fraud and money laundering.

Device information
Usage Information

How we use your information

We use your personal data for the following purposes:

1. To authenticate and communicate with Users, provide the Services, complete deposit and withdrawal transactions and transfer prizes. 

Specifically, we use users’ email addresses and Face IDs to authenticate users and grant access to our services. We use Users’ device IDs to notify them when our Contests are available and are about to start or promote our Services. We use birthdates to ensure users are eligible to use the Services. If Users register using their social networking service User ID or connect with their social networking user ID, we use their profile photos to personalize account avatars and we use their social networking service friends lists to personalize Users’ leaderboards. 
We use users’ credit card information and PayPal ID to complete deposits and withdrawal transactions, and transfer any prize money to them. We retain records of deposits, withdrawals and prizes distributed for the purposes of operating the Services and fraud prevention. This processing is necessary to perform the contract with you.  We also store prize winners’ full name, telephone number, mailing address, and, in some circumstances, social security or other government identification numbers so we can comply with our legal and taxation obligations.

2. To verify user location

Location coordinates are only gathered after the user has agreed to our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. Users who deny location services will be ineligible to use our Services as  verification of location and transaction origination from an eligible state is mandatory. HOFr detects your device’s approximate location whenever it is turned on (subject to coverage limitations) and connected to our Services.
Depending upon your type of device, HOFr may also be able to obtain a wide array of data points to the approximate location of your device. These data services, known as location-based services, are made available to HOFr and others, usually via applications that may be pre-loaded on your device, manually or automatically downloaded from various application stores.We use information about your location to verify your device is located within an eligible location. If a user’s device is geo-located within a designated ineligible location, the login session may be terminated and contest entry and/or submission will be blocked. HOFr may provide location based-services or provide third parties with access to your approximate location, in order to provide our Services to you. When your device location is requested, you will be given the option to allow the service or deny it.  HOFr follows CTIA’s Best Practices Guidelines for location-based services. 

3. As necessary for certain legitimate business interests, which include the following:

Sharing and disclosure of information

We may share or disclose your Personal Data with selected third parties at your direction, such as when you authorize a third-party service to access your account or when you voluntarily share information or content via the Services. 

There are certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, unless required by the law, as set forth below:

Data retention

Security of your personal data

HOFr will use reasonable efforts to keep your personal information accurate and safe for the Identified purposes in accordance with applicable laws and best practices. You are responsible for informing HOFr about changes to your personal information. HOFr will update personal information, when necessary, to keep it accurate.

HOFr has instituted appropriate security measures that protect against the loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction of information that we have collected from users. HOFr requires that our vendors and service providers ensure the security of the data that you provide to them, however, in the event of a breach of their security measures, you agree that HOFr will not be liable for any loss of data or other damages to you.

HOFr limits access to personal information about users to employees for whom we reasonably believe it is necessary, in order to provide our Services to users. 

HOFr has physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with international regulations, to protect against the loss, misuse, alteration or destruction of information that we have collected from users. 

HOFr has security measures and tools, such as firewalls, in place, to help protect against the loss, misuse, alteration and destruction of the information under our control. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or data storage system or email can be guaranteed to be 100% secure and error-free. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of your account has been compromised), please notify us of the problem as soon as possible by sending an email to support@hofr.io or calling us at 1-888-669-2022.

Reviewing your personal data
