II. How we collect info?

A. Info You Provide

We collect data you choose to provide or give to us in any manner. You don’t have to share personal info when we ask you for it, but if you decline, you might not be able to access certain services or take advantage of their full functionality. For example, you’ll need a valid account to play Match Day and access parts of our websites. If you’d like to create one, we’ll ask you to complete the registration, which requests info like a unique username and password, and your email address. You’ll also need to choose a public-facing User name to associate with certain account activity, like your in-game performance and forum posts. Other common ways you might provide us with info include: responding to surveys; participating in contests or similar promotions; requesting products or services from us; and using interactive features like forums or in-game chat.

B. Info We Collect Automatically

We and our partners also automatically record some info about how you use and navigate our services, including through technologies like cookies. Among other things, this helps us analyze, improve, and secure the services, as well as support our advertising efforts. We may combine automatically-collected info with other info we gather from or about you as described in this policy.


We automatically gather info about the ways you interact with the services and store it in log files. This may include, for example, Usage Info about your visit, like data that your device or browser sends to us when you access the services and details about how you use your account.


“Cookies” are small pieces of data that online services you use place on your device for record-keeping purposes. “Web beacons” are transparent pixel images that allow online services to collect info about the ways you interact with them (like whether you’ve opened an email or clicked on an ad). Other common tracking technologies include things like tags, scripts, local shared objects (e.g., Flash cookies), local storage (e.g., HTML5), and similar tools. The services use cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies to automatically collect, store, and read files on your device. They may be delivered in a first-party or third-party (i.e., by other companies) context. These tools help the services work and operate more efficiently, as well as capture Usage Info and similar data about your browsing experiences. We use info gathered through tracking technologies for several reasons, including to monitor, secure, and maintain the services; to enhance your browsing experience; to analyze and improve our operations (like aggregating traffic and usage patterns); to control the display of ads, including providing you with targeted offers; to support and gauge the effectiveness of our communications and marketing campaigns (like letting us know if you’ve clicked on our ads or opened our emails); to better personalize your visit and store your preferences and settings; and to otherwise manage our relationship with players. You can learn more about cookies, including details of how to manage or disable them, by visiting or consulting your browser’s privacy features. Some ways of managing traditional cookies may not impact the use of other tracking technologies, but certain browsers may offer their own tools for removing HTML5. Please note that disabling tracking technologies may prevent you from using the full functionality of the services and they may not work as we intended.


In addition to the tracking technologies we place, other companies may set their own cookies or similar tools when you visit the services. This includes vendors we’ve engaged to provide services on our behalf (like website analytics), as well as third parties that deliver content (like videos from YouTube) or offers (like ads from ad networks) contained on the services. We may receive reports based on our partners’ use of these tools on an individual or aggregate basis. For example, we use third-party analytics providers like Google Analytics to help evaluate and report on use of the services. These companies may set and read their own tracking technologies to gather info about your online activities across websites and services. Some analytics providers offer you choices about how they collect and use data directly on their websites. To learn more about opting out of Google Analytics, click here. We also partner with ad companies to support our marketing efforts, including by serving you ads better tailored to your likely interests (such as based on your browsing activity on the services or when visiting other online services). If you don’t want to take advantage of the services that such tracking technologies provide, you may be able to opt-out by visiting or, or if you’re located in the EU,

C. Other Sources

Sometimes we obtain info from third parties (like social media companies, marketing partners, or public databases) to use along with the info we collect from you. For example, our ad partners may share Demographic and Preference Info, Usage Info, or other similar data with us to support our marketing initiatives. This helps us better manage and improve our ad campaigns, like by displaying more personalized ads and measuring how effective they are. We also obtain info from third parties (like Facebook or Google +) if you choose to link your account on their services with the services. Your privacy settings on the third party’s service control what info they share with us. Please make sure you’re comfortable with what they might share by reviewing their posted policies, and if applicable, modifying your privacy settings directly on their service.


We use and share personal info with your consent and as needed to complete a transaction or provide a service you’ve requested or authorized. If we ever stop existing know we could share your info with our successor. Lastly, remember the stuff you type in chat and forums is treated as public info -- please be careful about what you’re sharing!

A. Using Personal Info

The personal info we collect helps us operate our business, provide and improve our products and services, communicate with you, and advertise effectively. The particular ways we use personal info often depend on how you choose to use the services. Common examples include to respond to inquiries, fulfil requests, and process transactions; to deliver and tailor our communications with you, like by sending you important account-related announcements or promotional communications that we believe may interest you (for details about managing your communication options, check out Your Choices and Controls below); to administer surveys, contests, sweepstakes, and similar offerings; to monitor, analyze, protect, and improve our operations; to promote products and services and measure the effectiveness of those campaigns; to personalize your experience, including by presenting content or features better tailored to your interests; to operate and expand our business; and to facilitate social sharing and related functionality.

B. Sharing Personal Info

We share personal info as described in this policy and as necessary to provide services you request or process transactions you authorize.

(0) DATA. The data provided by you to Cateffects with corporate address at Ferrocarril nº 6, 28530 Morata de Tajuña, Madrid, will be incorporated to an automated database under its responsibility.

(1) SUBSIDIARIES AND AFFILIATES. We share personal info with subsidiaries and affiliates to be used jointly by us and them as described in this policy. Since we’re a global company, this means your personal data could be transferred to or stored in locations outside your country of residence (see International Data Processing).

(2) VENDORS AND SERVICE PROVIDERS. We share personal info with vendors and service providers that operate on our behalf for the purposes discussed in this policy. If we do share personal info with vendors, they’re only allowed to process it as necessary to perform the services we’ve requested.

(3) INFO YOU SHARE. You relinquish any expectation of privacy in the info you share publicly through interactive features we control, including forums and in-game chat. We reserve the right (but have no obligation) to monitor your use of them. To request removal of your personal info from forums or similar features controlled by us, Contact Us within the support system, . We may not be able to remove your personal info in some cases, but we’ll let you know why.

C. Using And Sharing Non-Personal Info

We use and share non-personal info for many of the same reasons as personal info: it helps us operate our business, provide and improve our products and services, and advertise effectively. Because it doesn’t personally identify you, we often process non-personal info to support our operations in different ways as well. We reserve the right to process non-personal info for any lawful business purposes not otherwise prohibited by this policy. Some of the most common reasons we use and share non-personal info include: to personalize your Game experience; to track usage patterns and analyze trends; to promote products and services and measure the effectiveness of those campaigns; to control the display of content and advertisements, including interest-based ads; to monitor and improve the services; to conduct research (including by collaborating with third parties, such as universities); to administer the services, secure our operations, and prevent fraud; to diagnose technical issues like server problems; to manage our relationship with our players; and to share in-game data so they can help contribute to the player experience (this might include things like your win / loss record, item builds, and average number of wins and draws so other players can look up your recent match history). Note that non-personal info includes aggregated, anonymized, or otherwise de-identified info that doesn’t individually identify you.

D. The Tribunal

We’ve empowered the community to help police compliance with our policies related to in-game behavior. Players may report each other and submit descriptions of their in-game activity and actions, and in certain cases, collectively determine if the reported behavior constituted a violation of rules and procedures that apply to player conduct. As described in our Tribunal Policy, we record the web forums and store it for a period we determine in our sole discretion from time to time. If you’re reported and your case is brought before The Tribunal, chat from the reported game sessions will automatically be included in The Tribunal report and available for viewing by others. Please be careful what you share in the forums!


We work with third parties to make your experience better, but our privacy policy doesn’t and can’t apply to entities we don’t own or control. We’re unable to guarantee that other companies adhere to the same practices as us, so please be sure to read their policies and terms before sharing info with them. There are several ways you might share info with third-party websites or services in connection with your visit, including: external Links. If you click on links to external websites or services that are operated by third parties, they may collect, use, and share your personal info pursuant to their own policies (not ours). Including a link to or from third-party services doesn’t mean we’ve endorsed their practices. Payment Processing. Depending on your selected payment method and region of the world, payment-related info you provide may be collected directly by third-parties and subject to their privacy policy. For example, to make purchases using PayPal, you’ll need to share payment info with PayPal directly and PayPal’s use of your info will be subject to PayPal’s privacy policy. Social Media Features. The services use interfaces with social media companies to provide features that facilitate social sharing and connections (such as the Facebook “Like” button and other widgets). These features may collect info about your interactions with them and the services, and may use tracking technologies like cookies to function properly. How social media companies process your info is controlled by their own privacy policies. Third-Party Tracking. The services contain cookies, web beacons, and other common tracking technologies that help us collect and analyze info in connection with your visit (see Info We Collect Automatically). Third parties (like analytics providers or ad networks) may set and read their own tracking technologies on the services. If they do, they’re responsible for using these tools as described in their respective privacy policies. Please remember to contact third parties directly (and not Cateffects ) if you have any questions or concerns about their practices.


You’ve got to be at least 13 to use our stuff. The services are general audience services not intended for children under the age of 13. We don’t direct content specifically at, and don’t knowingly collect personal info from, any such children. If you’re younger than 13, please don’t use the services or otherwise provide us any personal info. If you’re the legal guardian of a child younger than 13 and have reason to believe he or she has provided personal info to Cateffects , please Contact Us immediately to request that we delete it.


Our services don’t respond to Internet browser DNT signals. Some newer Internet browsers incorporate “Do Not Track” features. If activated, these features often send a signal to the services you visit indicating that you don’t want to be tracked in some way. Those services (or content on them placed by third parties) may continue to engage in activities you may view as tracking even though you’ve expressed this preference, depending on the service’s privacy practices. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal, Cateffects does not currently respond to browser DNT signals on the services. To learn more about the privacy-related choices that we do offer, see Your Choices and Controls below.


You have choices regarding your use of the services and the ways we process info. Since you can interact with us in many different ways, the particular controls available to you often depend on the nature of our relationship. Limit personal info you share. The main way we collect personal info is when you give it to us voluntarily. You can choose to browse some parts of the services without ever creating an account, purchasing products or services, or otherwise submitting personal info to Cateffects (see Info You Provide). If you do provide us with personal info, we generally retain it as long as your account is active or as is otherwise necessary to provide the services and operate our business (including for purposes like complying with our legal obligations, managing internal books and records, preventing fraud, resolving disputes, and enforcing our contracts and terms, such as this policy and theTerms of Use), unless a longer retention period is permitted or required by law. Access or delete your personal info. If you’re concerned with the way we’re handling your personal info, or would like to update or delete it, Contact Us. We’ll respond to requests to access or delete your personal info within 30 days. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personal info, but we’ll let you know why. Note that requesting deletion of your personal info may also result in account termination. Update your communication preferences. While we offer players the option to receive updates and promotional communications from Cateffects , you can change your preferences at any time. To opt-out, simply “unsubscribe” by following the instructions in any of our promotional emails. These choices don’t apply to mandatory communications that are part of the services, like important account-related notices. Change your browser settings. Many Internet browsers allow you to reject, manage, and delete cookies. You may also be able to manage other forms of tracking technologies, like HTML5, by changing your browser settings (see Info We Collect Automatically). Control third-party tracking. Ad companies, analytics providers, and similar third parties place their own tracking technologies on the services (see Info We Collect Automatically). If you don’t want to take advantage of the services that such tracking technologies provide, you may be able to opt-out by visiting or, or if you’re located in the EU, Some companies also allow you to opt-out by contacting them directly. Update your third-party privacy settings. If you authorize third-party services to share info with us, you may be able to control the types of info they make available by directly updating your privacy settings on their service. For example, if you link your social media account with the services, your privacy settings on the social media company’s service determine what info we receive (see Other Sources).


We’re committed to securing personal info, but can’t guarantee the security of any data we collect from you. By choosing to share personal info with us (or anybody else online these days), you’re accepting this risk. We use physical, technical, and organizational security safeguards to help protect your personal info from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we use computer systems with limited access in controlled facilities to store personal info. We also use technologies like encryption and hashing to protect some of the info we collect. However, please note that no server, communications network, or data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. The services are no exception. We can’t guarantee the security of any info transmitted through the services and make no assurances about our ability to prevent any such loss or misuse. It’s up to you whether you’d like to share personal info with us; if you do, you’re acknowledging and agreeing that you’re doing so at your own risk.


We'll make changes to this policy over time to keep you better informed about how we handle player info. We'll update our privacy policy from time to time to reflect changes in technology, law, our business operations, or any other reason we determine is necessary or appropriate. When we do make changes, we’ll update the “Last Modified” date at the top of the policy and post it to the services. If we make material changes to the policy or the ways we process personal info, we’ll provide you additional notice as well (such as by prominently posting a notice of the changes on the services before they take effect or sending you a notification directly). We encourage you to check back periodically to review our privacy policy for any changes since your last visit. This will help ensure you better understand your relationship with Cateffects , including the ways we process your info.
