What personal information do we collect?
When registering on our Web site, users must provide their email address and their age. Those two items are the only information required by our registration process, and we do not require users under the age of 13, or any users, to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in an activity.
Once registered, each user over the age of 13 has the option, but is not required, to complete an account profile with any of the following additional information: first name, last name, street address, city, state/province/region of residence, and country of residence. Users under the age of 13, or their parents on their behalf, may optionally provide their name, create a Super League profile name, and/or provide their user name(s) on third party gaming platforms (such as Minecraft). Our Web site includes insite communications tools (e.g., forums, comments, or chat), where it is possible for users to provide personal information that is visible to other users.Parents or guardians of children under 13 should note our insite communications tools permit a child user to post text or media (including photographs or video) through which the child could provide personal information that would be visible to other users. Additionally, at our inperson or intheater events, we, our third party partners, the media, and/or other Super League members may wish to take photos, videos, or audio recordings of those in attendance. When you use our Web site to purchase items, pay for attendance at events, or provide verifiable parental consent to our use of personal information for those under the age of 13, we also require your billing information, such as a credit card number and billing address.
Note to parents or guardians of children under 13 years old: We only collect the information described above from a child under 13 years old if you provide us with verifiable consent, unless one of the limited exceptions set forth in the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) applies.
When do we collect information?
We collect information when you register at www.superleague.com and, at your option, at the time you complete and submit any of the information included in our account profile form. When it is entered by users, we or our service providers store and transmit the information users enter into our insite communications tools (e.g., forums, comments, or chat).

How do we protect your information?
We use reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. Our Web site is scanned on a regular basis to detect and address security vulnerabilities. We regularly scan our site and systems for malware. We maintain your personal information on secured servers only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are contractually required to keep the information confidential. Sensitive data is encrypted. We maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of the personal information we collect by taking reasonable steps to release such information only to parties capable of maintaining its confidentiality and security (see “Do we share your information?” below). We retain the personal information we collect for only as long as is reasonably necessary to fulfill the purpose for which we collected the information. After that, we ensure that the collected personal information is deleted in a manner that safeguards against a security breach and protects against its unauthorized access or use, though it is possible your information may persist as residual copies or in our backup systems for some time after we have directed its deletion. We also use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol on your account information and registration pages to protect sensitive personal information. Financial transactions are processed through a certified backend provider and are not stored or processed on our servers.
Do we use ‘cookies’?
If you disable cookies (turn them off), some features on our website may be disabled, and some of our services may not function properly. However, you can register for events and use many site features if you disable cookies.
Do we share your information?
We do not sell or otherwise share your or your child’s information with any third parties, except for the limited purposes described below. Parents or guardians of children under the age of 13 have the option of consenting to the collection and use of their child’s personal information without consenting to the disclosure of that information to certain third parties.
Service Providers: The personal information we collect may be transferred, disclosed, or shared with services engaged by us to support our internal operations (such as payment processing or mail/email distribution), and to perform other technical and processing functions (such as storing data, maintaining data integrity, programming operations, user services or technology services). We may provide these services information we collect as needed to perform their functions, but they are prohibited from using that information for other purposes, and they specifically agree to maintain the confidentiality of such information. Some of these providers, such as payment processors, may request additional information during the course of offering their services. Before you provide additional information to third party providers, we encourage you to review their privacy policies and information collection practices.
Law Enforcement Safety: We may access, preserve, and/or disclose the information we collect and/or content you and/or your child provides to us (including information posted to our insite communications tools) to a law enforcement agency or other third parties if required to do so by law or with a good faith belief that such access, preservation, or disclosure is reasonably necessary to:
InSite Communications Tools:
Our Web site includes various insite communications tools (e.g., forums, comments, or chat). Parents of children under 13 should note our insite communications tools permit a child user to post text or media (including photographs or video) through which the child could provide personal information that would be visible to other users. Please be aware that anyone may read postings on certain insite communications tools. Any information which is posted to such insite communications tools could include personal information, which would be disclosed and available to other users of that tool, and would not therefore be private. Super League cannot guarantee the security of information that any user discloses or communicates online in public areas. Those who do so, do so at their own risk. We reserve the right to monitor the content of our insite communications tools. If age inappropriate material or potentially identifiable information is seen, it may be removed or edited by us for security, privacy and/or legal reasons. We will not republish postings from our insite communications tools elsewhere on the Web.
Super League and its staff and other representatives maintain accounts on various social media sites (e.g., Instragram, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube). Photos, videos, and audio recordings of those who attend our inperson or intheater events may be posted by Super League or reshared (if posted by other users) on Super League’s social media accounts, in accordance with the terms of the release you may sign in connection with such an event.
If during the normal course of our business another entity acquires Super League or any of our assets, personal information we have collected may be transferred to that entity. Additionally, in a bankruptcy or reorganization, such information may be considered an asset and may be transferred or sold.
How do I consent to and control your use of my personal information?
Parents of users under 13 years old:
- That Super League collected their online contact information to give them notice and subsequently update them about your child’s participation in our Web site?
- That Super League wishes to collect personal information from their child?
- That their consent is required for the collection, use, and disclosure of this information?
- What information will be collected, and how it might be disclosed to others?
- That consent can be given via a credit card transaction or by signing and returning a form?
- That if consent is not given within a reasonable time, Super League will delete the parent’s email address from its records.
Through a link in the email, the parent or guardian is taken to a Web page where he or she confirms receipt of the direct notice we sent via email, and provides verifiable parental consent by permitting us to charge a small amount to the parent’s or guardian’s credit card, debit card, or other online payment system that provides notification of each discrete transaction to the primary account holder. We verify the payment method by charging a small, nonrefundable fee to that account. This is the most common method allowed by law for obtaining verifiable parental consent. It costs us more to process the transaction than the amount the payment method is charged, and we do not make any money from the transaction. Alternatively, the direct notice we send parents and guardians also directs them to a downloadable consent form that can be printed, signed, and sent back to us via fax, mail, or electronic scan, to:
Super League Gaming, Inc.
2906 Colorado Ave.
Santa Monica, CA 90404 USA
Parents or guardians of children under 13 can agree to our collection and use of their child’s information, but still opt out of our disclosure of such information to our Super League Partners listed above. Parents or guardians may opt out of such disclosure when providing their consent, or by contacting us directly.
Parents or guardians of children under 13 can review their child’s personal information, direct us to delete it, and refuse to allow further collection or use of the child’s information by contacting us directly at the addresses or number listed above. When deletion is requested, we ensure that a child’s personal information is deleted in a manner that safeguards against a security breach and protects against its unauthorized access or use, though it is possible the information may persist as residual copies or in our backup systems for some time after we have directed its deletion.
Users 13 and over:
We strive to give you access to your personal information, and if that information is wrong, to allow you to update it easily or delete it (unless we’re required to keep that information for legitimate business or legal reasons). Should you wish to access or request deletion of any of the personal information you have provided us, please contact us at:
Super League Gaming, Inc.
2906 Colorado Ave.
Santa Monica, CA 90404 USA
We may reject requests for access or deletion of personal information if they are unreasonably repetitive, require unreasonable technical measures (such as changing our business practices or developing new functionality), put others’ privacy at risk, or would be unreasonably impractical. We will not charge you for accessing or correcting your personal information except if doing so would require unreasonable expense to us. Though we will do our best to honor your request to delete data, it is possible your information may persist as residual copies or in our backup systems for some time after we have received and acted upon your request.
