This Policy will explain what information We collect online, why We collect it, and the choices We offer to you. We hope this will help you make an informed decision about sharing personal information with Us.

3. NOTE REGARDING CHILDREN

Our Services are designed for adults (18+) only! We do not knowingly collect information for any child under the legal age to provide consent to data processing (13 in the US and up to 16 in the EU). If you are the parent of a child under the age required to provide consent and have a concern regarding your child’s information on our Services and/or wish to delete their data, please contact us at animeandsmoke@gmail.com.

 

4. INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We may collect information about the Services you use and how you use them, such as the selections you make on our Services. We collect PII, DII, and log information about your interactions as described below.

Personally identifiable information (“PII”) is information that can be used to identify or contact you online or offline, such as your name, address, email, phone number, photos or audio data, profile pictures, and payment information. The Service may collect PII when it is provided to us, such as when you use our Services, attempt to contact us or connect with us on social media or one of our partners. For example, you may see a “Log in with…” button from your phone, which means we request PII from a partner to streamline the login process. You will likely be presented with a “request for permission” screen by a third party asking to share your ID, profile picture, and other listed information with us. We may collect users’ government or similar IDs to verify accounts and may share that information with a vendor to conduct those verifications.

We may also create or collect device-identifiable information (“DII”), such as cookies, statistical identifiers, gamertags, device or advertising identifiers, usernames, and similar identifiers that are linkable to a browser, device, or account but which does not directly identify a person. From these platforms, we may also receive other information, such as your IP address, user agent, timestamps, precise and imprecise geolocation, sensor data, apps, fonts, battery life information, and screen size.

Our Services also collect information about your interactions, including navigation paths, search queries, crashes, timestamps, purchases, clicks and shares, and referral URLs. We may combine this data with PII and DII. For efficiency, information about your interactions may be transmitted to our servers while you are not using the app. We may also partner with third parties that collect additional information – please see their privacy policies for more details and see below for your choices regarding these parties.

 

5. HOW WE USE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

The information collected by Us will be used for a variety of business purposes, including, for example, to operate, maintain and provide you with the features and functionality of the Sites and Services. This may include (but is not limited to):

  • Providing, maintaining, protecting and improving our Services, to develop new Services and offerings, and to protect Us and Our users.
  • Responding to your inquiries, providing customer services, and resolving any complaints;
  • Communicating with you regarding certain products, services or promotions offered by Campaign Monitor or certain third party products or services We believe you may be interested in, provided that you have not already opted out of receiving such communications;
  • Anonymizing or aggregating your information for business purposes, including for reporting and research purposes;
  • Alerting you to changes to the Site and/or the Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions;
  • Enforcing compliance with the Terms and Conditions;

6. HOW WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION

A&S is committed to maintaining your trust and We want you to understand when and with whom We may share information collected about you. We never share information We receive from you unless: (i) We have your permission to share that information, e.g., a specific program that you can opt-in or out of at any time; (ii) We have given you prior notice that the information will be shared, and with whom (such as in this Privacy Policy); or (iii) the information is General Information, e.g., aggregate information or other information that does not identify you, which We may use and disclose without limitation.

We share PII with companies, outside organizations, and individuals for limited reasons, outlined below:

  • With your consent - We will share PII with companies, outside organizations or individuals if we have your consent to do so.
  • For external processing - We provide PII to our affiliates or other trusted businesses or persons to process it for us, based on our instructions and in compliance with our Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures. For example, We may employ third party service providers to perform certain services on Our behalf, including, without limitation: (i) providing customer service; (ii) hosting Our databases; (iii) performing business analysis, data processing and/or quality control; and (iv) providing marketing assistance, search results and links (including, without limitation, paid listings and links).Consequently, We may share your PII with these third party service providers if they need it to perform services on Our behalf. However, use of the PII shared is strictly limited to the performance of the task We request and for no other purpose. All third parties with whom We share Personal Information are required to protect it in a manner similar to the way We protect information.
  • For legal reasons - We will share PII with companies, outside organizations or individuals if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request, detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues or protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of our users or the public as required or permitted by law. For example, We may disclose your PII without notice: (i) to cooperate in investigations of fraud, intellectual property infringement or any other activity that is illegal or may expose Us or you to legal liability; (ii) when required by law or to comply with a court order, subpoena, search warrant or other legal process; (iii) to comply with legal, regulatory or administrative requirements of governmental authorities (including, without limitation, requests from the governmental agency authorities to view your Personal Information); (iv) to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of Us, Our affiliates, subsidiaries and partners and any of their officers, directors, employees, attorneys, agents, contractors and partners, and the other users of the Service; (v) to verify the identity of the users; (vi) to protect the security and integrity of the Site; (vii) to protect the rights, property or personal safety of A&S, Our users or others; and (viii) to enforce the OurTerms and Conditions.

  • In case of a sale or asset transfer - If we become involved in a merger, acquisition or other transaction involving the sale of some or all of our assets, user information, including PII collected from you through your use of our Services, could be included in the transferred assets. Should such an event occur, we will use reasonable means to notify you, either through email and/or a prominent notice on the Services.
  • In aggregated form for business purposes - We may share aggregated information and DII with our partners such as businesses we have a relationship with, advertisers or connected sites. For example, we may share information to show trends about the general use of our services.

We use DII to operate our Services and manage user sessions, including analyzing usage of our Services, preventing malicious behavioral and fraud, improving the content, to link your identity across devices and browsers in order to provide you with a more seamless experience online, and helping third parties provide relevant advertising and related metrics. We share DII with third parties primarily for advertising and analytics purposes, for external processing, and for security purposes.

 

7. THIRD PARTIES

The Service may contain advertising and links to external third party sites that We do not own or operate. This may include links from advertisers, sponsors and/or partners that may use Our logo(s) as part of a co-branding or co-marketing agreement. While we strive to work with reputable companies with good privacy practices, this Policy does not apply to services offered by other companies or individuals, including products or sites that may be displayed to you on the Services. For further information, please see the relevant privacy policies for each third party and industry codes of conduct.

For example, once such information is posted to a social network, it will be subject to the policies, terms and conditions of that provider. You should familiarize yourself with the privacy policy provided by that party.

We obtain consent for the processing of data necessary for any optional profile information, such as your profile picture, your description, gender, birthday, and general location (e.g., state and country). Where users login with social media accounts, those companies have obtained consent on our behalf to use that data as described above.

We have a legitimate interest in sending periodic emails and direct marketing to inform registered users of updates and offers. We make clear disclosures when users sign up and offer opt outs to anyone not interested.

For HR and internal operations, we rely on contractual necessity and legitimate interests to process the data of applicants and staff, such as for resumes and applications, payroll, internal chat and communications, and project management.

11. ACCESSING AND UPDATING YOUR INFORMATION

We aim to provide you with a reasonable opportunity to access, update, and delete to your PII. We urge you to review your PII regularly to ensure that it is correct and complete.

If We are unable to meet your request, We will let you know why. For example, it may be necessary for Us to deny your request if it would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy or affairs of other individuals, or if it is not reasonable and practicable for Us to process your request in the manner you have requested.

12. HOW LONG USER INFORMATION IS KEPT

We will only keep your PII for as long as We require it for the purposes of operating the Site and providing you with the Services. We may keep a copy of your PII in Our archives for as long as We reasonably need it. We may alter this practice according to changing requirements. For example, We may delete some data if needed to free up storage space. We may keep other data for longer periods if applicable law requires.

In addition, you should be aware that it is not always possible to completely remove or delete all of your information from databases without some residual data because of backups and other reasons.

13. INFORMATION SECURITY

We work hard to protect our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold and undertake reasonable security measures with appropriate confidentiality, integrity, and availability protections. However, since no software or storage system is 100% secure, we cannot guarantee for the security of your information associated with the Services, or any other service for that matter. You can help protect your account information by using unique and hard-to-guess passwords.

  • ESPORTS

O.S. (OPEN SEASON) is the lightweight version of PRO S. (PRO SEASON).

This season runs monthly.

Gamers have the opportunity to earn stats towards their Gamer Career.

Participating in O.S. only rewards with stats and level upgrade. There are no wagers allowed in O.S.

The only way a Gamer can earn $$ while in O.S. will be through F.E. PAYOUTS.

Register for matches, tournaments, and leagues, just as you will for PRO S., and fill in your stat cards accurately.

 

  • GUILDS:

In A&S ESPORTS, we use a guild system.

There are a total of 8 GUILDS. There are no limits to how many players a guild may have, but a player can only pledge to one guild at a time.

Registering for a guild is free, but you'll only be considered a "temp recruit". In order to be a full pledge GUILD MEMBER, you'll have to at least acquire your player jersey.

 

Once you've acquired your official guild player jersey, you are to submit quality photos of you against a solid backdrop, preferably white.

From there you can then take advantage of your new OFFICIAL GUILD PLAYER status.

Welcome, & Have Fun.
