What Personal Information does GameChanger Collect?
GameChanger does not intend to collect “Sensitive Information” which includes such items as: Personal Information specifying medical or health conditions, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or information specifying the sex life of the individual. However to the extent this information is collected by GameChanger the person providing such information will be given an affirmative or explicit (opt in) choice if such information is to be disclosed to a third party or used for a purpose other than those for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual through the exercise of opt in choice.
How does GameChanger use Personal Information?
In accordance with applicable law, Personal Information collected may be transferred to, stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which GameChanger, GameChanger subsidiaries and affiliates, or service providers maintain facilities, even if the level of data privacy required is less than that required by applicable law of the originating country. By entering your Personal Information or any data, you consent to the worldwide processing of your Personal Information by GameChanger for these uses.
Personal Information once “De-identified” (i.e., the removal or modification of the personally identifiable elements, or the extraction non-personally identifiable elements including through anonymization, pseudonymization, and/or hashing) is also not Personal Information and may be used and shared without obligation to you, except as prohibited by applicable law. However, we do not make assurances that De-identified data is not capable of re-identification. In the event de-identified information is combined with or re-identified as Personal Information by GameChanger then it will again become Personal Information. Information provided by third parties or other sources to GameChanger that may include information about you is not Personal Information unless they defined it as such subject to restrictions or it is combined with Personal Information we collected from you. GameChanger is not responsible or liable for the accuracy of the information provided by third parties or for third party policies or practices.
With whom does GameChanger Share Personal Information?
GameChanger contracts with its affiliates and subsidiaries and with third party service providers and suppliers to deliver certain products, services and customer solutions and support. Examples of such services provided on our behalf include, but are not limited to the delivery of mailings, hosting websites, marketing, fulfillment, processing transactions, planning events, and the provision of support and other services to enable the use of GameChanger products and services. GameChanger may use a recruitment partner to collect and process career applications. GameChanger may share Personal Information with its service providers and suppliers to the extent needed to deliver the service or products, or to respond to requests for information on products or services, or to otherwise support the customers' business needs. In these instances, you will not have the opportunity to opt out of having your information shared with third party providers and suppliers, and they may contact you directly regarding such products or services.
Choice and Access
GameChanger does not require that customers, business partners or non-employee visitors to GameChanger Sites provide GameChanger with Personal Information. The decision to provide Personal Information is wholly voluntary. If you do not provide the Personal Information requested, however, you may not be able to proceed with the activity, purchase Products, or receive the benefit for which the Personal Information is being requested.
GameChanger will send you service-related announcements on occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended, we might send you an email. Generally, you may not opt-out of these service-related communications. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to deactivate your account.
With respect to the sending of promotional materials, GameChanger will offer you the opportunity to opt out before such materials are sent to you. You can always unsubscribe or choose not to receive promotional information from us by following the specific instructions in the email you receive or by notifying us via the appropriate method below. It may take a reasonable period of time to process your request, no longer than 30 days. This will not apply to the receipt of mandatory service communications that are considered part of certain GameChanger services, which you may receive periodically unless you cancel the service.
You have the right to access to your Personal Information and to modification or deletion thereof in the event your Personal Information as stored by us is incorrect or otherwise unlawful. GameChanger strives to keep your Personal Information accurate. We will provide you with access to your information when reasonable, or in accordance with relevant laws, including making reasonable effort to provide you with online access and the opportunity to change your information. To protect your privacy and security, we will take steps to verify your identity before granting access or making changes to your data. You have the right to withdraw any consent you've given with respect to our use of your Personal Information. Requests to delete Personal Information are subject to any applicable legal and ethical reporting or document retention obligations. To access and/or correct information, you can do so online or notify us via the appropriate method below depending on which site is at issue. Contact GameChanger at email@example.com or via mail at GameChanger, 5739 Belmont Avenue, Dallas, TX 75206, USA.
GameChanger will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. GameChanger will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
Security of Personal Information
GameChanger is committed to securing the personal data you choose to provide us. To protect the privacy of any Personal Information you may have provided, GameChanger and its service providers employ industry-standard physical and logical access controls that change in response to the changing regulatory and threat environments including Internet firewalls, intrusion detection, anti-virus protection, and network monitoring. If a password is used to help protect your accounts and Personal Information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our web site, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Web Beacons, Cookies, Other Methods, and Display of Advertising
As is true of most web sites, GameChanger and/or a third party service provider collects and/or logs Internet Protocol addresses, Internet domain names, the web browser and operating system used to access the Sites, the files visited, the time spent in each file, and the time and date of each visit. GameChanger collects these through the use of log files and web beacons. Web beacons are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. GameChanger does not tie the information gathered by web beacons to our customers’ personally identifiable information. GameChanger uses this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
For the GameChanger Sites we may use the services of a third party vendor to help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising and how visitors use the site by using web beacons or cookies as described above. The type of information we collect includes the pages visited, navigation patterns, etc. This information helps us learn things such as what product information is of most interest to our customers and what kinds of offers our customers like to see. These third party tracking devices only collect data in the aggregate. Broadly speaking the cookies on the Sites fall into three categories:
Strictly Necessary: These are always enabled cookies required for site functionality. These include cookies that allow you to be remembered as you explore the site within a single session or, if you request, from session to session. They help make the search and account process run smoothly as well as assist in security issues and conforming to regulations.
Functional and Performance: These analytics cookies allow us to improve the site's functionality by anonymously tracking usage. They also help us identify GameChanger products that we may recommend to you. In some cases these cookies improve the speed with which we can process your request, allow us to remember site preferences you've selected and help connect you to your social networks. De-selecting these cookies may result in poorly-tailored recommendations and slow site performance. You also may not be able to share effectively with Facebook, Twitter or other social networks.
Advertising: These cookies collect information to help better tailor advertising to your interests, both within and beyond Sites. The data collected is anonymous; it is not connected with any Personal Information you may have shared about yourself with GameChanger. De-selecting these cookies may result in seeing advertising that is not as relevant to you.
GameChanger may utilize framing techniques to make it appear that the user is still on the site when the user is actually on a third party web site. Widgets support functions that require that you disclose certain personally identifiable information given the user's choice of participation.
Location Based Services: GPS (global positioning systems) software, geo-filtering and other location-aware technologies locate you (sometimes precisely), or make assumptions about your location, for purposes such as verifying your location and delivering or restricting content, including third party ads, based on your location. If you have enabled GPS or use other location-based features on the Service, your device location may be tracked by us and third parties. Our store finder feature may access and use information about your device location (such as based on IP address or GPS, as applicable), or your account information, to suggest appropriate store locations. Our Service Content may be personalized based on various information we may have about you to try to provide you with more location-relevant content.
Embedded Scripts: An embedded script is programming code designed to collect information about your interactions with the Service. It is temporarily downloaded onto your computer from GameChanger’s web server, or from a third party with which GameChanger works, and is active only while you are connected to the Service, and deleted or deactivated thereafter.
Cross Device Data: Technologies, including application of statistical probability to data sets, as well as linking a common unique identifier to different device use (e.g., Facebook ID), which attempt to recognize or make assumptions about users and devices (e.g., that a user of multiple devices is the same user or household) (“Cross Device Data”).

GDPR Specific Terms
Pursuant to the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), if you are a resident of the European Economic Area (“EEA”), we process your personal information under the following lawful bases: your consent; the performance of the contract between you and the Site; compliance with our legal obligations; to protect your vital interests; or for our legitimate interests, which do not override your fundamental rights and freedoms.
When you place an order through the Site, we will retain your Personal Information for our records unless and until you ask us to erase this information. For more information on your right of erasure, please see below.

We do not engage in fully automated decision-making that has a legal or otherwise significant effect using customer data.
Our processors use or may use limited automated decision-making to prevent fraud that does not have a legal or otherwise significant effect on you. Services that include elements of automated decision-making include: temporary deny list of IP addresses associated with repeated failed transactions. This deny list persists for a small number of hours and temporary deny list of credit cards associated with deny listed IP addresses. This deny list persists for a small number of days.
