Famous NYC Inc., (“Company”, “we” or “Famous”) respects the privacy of the users of the App (“User” or “you”) and is committed to protect the User's information. We believe that you have a right to know our practices regarding the information we may collect and use when you use our App.
01/Your consent (important, please read carefully!)
02/Which information we may collect on our Users?
We may collect two types of data and information from our Users:
a. The first type of information is non-identifiable and anonymous information (“Non-personal Information”). We are not aware of the identity of the User from whom we have collected the Non-personal Information. Non-Personal Information is any unconcealed information which does not enable identification of an individual User, and which is available to us when such User installs and/or uses our App. Non-personal Information which is being gathered consists of technical information, behavioral information and aggregated information, and may contain, among other things, the activity of the User on the App, type of operating system, device type, User's 'click-stream' on the App, keyboard language, screen resolution, time spent on various screens of the App, etc.
b. The second type of information is individually identifiable information (“Personal Information”). This information may identify an individual or may be of a private and/or sensitive nature.
We gather the Users' IP address (or Mac Address, as applicable) mainly to detect anomalies for enhancing the User’s experience and security purposes (i.e., in order to safeguard our App).
In addition, Personal Information which is being gathered consists of any personal details provided consciously and voluntarily by the User:
Personal Information is collected from the details the Users provide in the "player card" form available on the App, which includes, inter alia, name, email address, password, phone number, gender, date of birth, sport preferences, skills, dominant hand or foot, height, and profile image. Additional information may be requested in the future.
You may sign-up to the App by providing a cell phone number and receiving a verification code you will be required to enter in order to start filling the player card. Alternatively, you may sign-up to the App via one of your existing Third-Party Services accounts (e.g. Google+, LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram etc.). When you sign-up to the App through such existing third-party account, then such third-party accounts provide us with access to certain information, which is detailed and displayed to you in the notice which appears during the integration process, which may include your name, email address, profile photo and user-id on such account. Please read carefully such notice in order to understand what information is made available to us via your third-party accounts. We may collect your login information and other relevant information necessary to enable us to access your third-party accounts in order to collect the above mentioned information. We may store the above-mentioned information (or any part of it), in order to achieve the purposes set forth herein. Please remember that the manner in which third-party accounts use, store or disclose your information is governed solely by their policies and we will have no liability or responsibility for the privacy practices or other actions of such third parties. If you do not agree to these practices please do not use third-party accounts in order to use our App. You hereby agree that such information will be stored even after the linkage to your third-party accounts expires, for any reason.
To the extent that you purchase a Premium Account to the App, you will have the option to use certain Online Payment Processors which will require you to fill out a billing form wherein you will be required to provide to such Online Payment Processors certain Personal Information (such as, a credit card number and other related billing information) (see Section 6 below regarding the payment method). We will not store such information on our servers. We only keep token information such Online Payment Processors provide us with (and where applicable, the last four digits of your credit card number), and such information is strictly secured.
Personal Information is collected from the details that the User may provide in the scope of the User Generated Content (e.g. Personal Information which is included in comments or videos that Users may upload to the App).
Personal Information may be collected from the details the User may provide us while contacting us via the support e-mail available on the App or by sending us an email.
For avoidance of doubt, any Non-personal Information connected or linked to or associated with any Personal Information shall be deemed as Personal Information as long as such connection, linkage or association exists.
03/How Do We Collect Information on our Users?
There are two main methods that we use:
a. We collect information through your entry, connection, access and/or use of the App. In other words, when you are using the App, we are aware of it and may gather, collect and store the information relating to such usage (such as the Non-personal Information detailed above and your IP address), either independently or through the help of our authorized third-party service providers as detailed below.
b. We collect information which you provide us voluntarily. For example, we collect Personal Information when you register and open an Account or when you create and/or upload User Generated Content via the App.
04/What are the Purposes of the Collection of Information?

Use it for statistical, analytical and research purposes and for customization, developing and improvement of our App.

09/Third Party Service Providers
The App is intended for Users over the age of thirteen (13). Therefore, Famous does not intend and does not knowingly collect directly Personal Information from children under the age of thirteen (13) and does not wish to do so. We reserve the right to request proof of age at any stage so that we can verify that minors under the age of thirteen (13) are not using the App.

12/Cookies & Local Storage
When you access or use the App, we and/or our third party service providers may use industry-wide technologies such as User persistent identifiers (or other similar technologies), which store certain local information on your device ("Local Storage") which may enable, inter alia, automatic activation of certain features and make the User’s App experience and usage simpler, more relevant, convenient and effortless. Such information is locally stored in the User's device. Famous and/or our authorized third party service providers may access such information. Famous and/or our authorized third party service providers may use both session cookies (which expire once you close the App) and persistent cookies (which stay on the User’s device until he/she deletes them). Such Local Storage used by the App may store non-personal information (such as the different pages viewed by a User within the App) as well as User persistent identifier, which will be collected in accordance with the terms specified herein. It is easy to prohibit and/or delete the Local Storage, inter alia, through the Settings option of your web-browser. Most browsers will allow you to erase cookies from a device, block acceptance of cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. However, if you block or erase cookies, or change the settings of your browser, your App experience may be affected and may be limited.
Please note that Famous uses Mixpanel as a service provider in order to track Users' activities on the App, including by use Mixpanels' persistent cookies. You may opt-out of Mixpanel's tracking by following the instructions on the following link: https://mixpanel.com/optout/
