Do we use ‘cookies’?

Yes. We and our service providers, advertisers, and other third parties use cookies and similar technologies (e.g., HTTP cookies, HTML 5, flash local storage cookies, web beacons, GIFs, embedded scripts, ETags/cache browsers, and software development kits) to recognize you on, off, and across your devices. Cookies are small files that we or our service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) and/or your device that enables FanUp or our service provider’s systems to recognize your browser or device to capture and remember certain information. These partners may use mobile device identifiers, such as Apple IDFAs and Google/Android Advertising IDs. Doing this allows the ad companies to recognize your computer or device each time they send you an online or mobile advertisement. In this way, the ad companies may compile information about where you, or others who are using your computer or device, saw their advertisements and measure your interaction with each ad. We use cookies to help us remember and process your purchased Services and/or subscriptions. They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current activity, which enables us to provide you with improved Services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about traffic and interaction so that we can offer better experiences and Services in the future.

We use cookies to:
  • Help remember and process your orders.
  • Understand and save your preferences for future visits.
  • Compile aggregate data about traffic and interactions in order to offer better experiences and Services in the future. We may also use trusted third-party services that track this information on our behalf.

You can choose to turn off all cookies through your device settings. If you disable cookies, some features on the App will be disabled. It may affect your experience, by decreasing the App’s efficiency or causing some of our Services to not function properly.

Mobile App and Connected Devices

Depending on the device you use, you may be able to manage your advertising and location preferences through your device settings. Many operating systems provide their own instructions on how to prevent the delivery of tailored in-application advertisements. We do not control how the applicable platform operator allows you to manage personalized in-application advertisements. You should review your device manufacturer’s support materials and/or the device settings for the respective operating systems for more detail on how to manage such preferences.

You can stop all collection of information by a mobile app by uninstalling the App.

Third Party and other Disclosures of Your Personal Information

We may share your information with related companies, advertisers, partners, social networks, service providers, research and management companies, search engines, law enforcement, hosting partners, professional sports leagues, and other parties who assist us in operating our App, conducting our business, or servicing you. Similarly, if we are involved in a merger, collaboration, acquisition or asset sale, your personal information may be transferred. However, we will provide notice before your personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

We may also release your Personal Information under certain circumstances when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our policies, and/or protect ours or others’ rights, property, or safety. We may also be required to disclose your personal information if required by law or in response to a valid request by a public authority (e.g., a court or governmental agency).

However, non-Personal Information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

Third party Links

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party advertisements, products, or services on our App. These third parties have separate and independent privacy policies. Therefore, we have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these third parties. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our App and welcome any feedback about these other websites and third-party links.

Retention of Your Personal Information

We will retain your Personal Information only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. We will retain and use your Personal Information to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations (for example, if we are required to retain your data to comply with applicable laws), resolve disputes, and/or enforce our legal agreements and policies.

Acceptance of Terms

Through the use of this App, you are hereby accepting this Privacy Policy and each of the terms and conditions stipulated herein. If you are not in agreement with this policy, then you should refrain from further use of our App.

Your continued use of our App, following the posting of any updates or changes to this Privacy Policy, shall indicate that you are in agreement and acceptance of such changes.

International Transfers

FanUp is headquartered in the United States; however, it may transfer your information to service providers and other third parties located outside of your country of residence, including in the United States. This may be necessary to provide our Services and for the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy. Data privacy laws vary from country to country and may not be equivalent to, or as protective as, the laws in your home country. We take steps to ensure that reasonable safeguards are in place with aim to ensure an appropriate level of protection for your information, in accordance with applicable law. These measures include data transfer agreements. By providing us with your information, you acknowledge any such transfer, storage, or use.

Depending on where you live, you may have certain rights with respect to your information. For example, under local laws, you may be able to ask us to:

  • Provide access to certain information we hold about you, in some cases in a portable format, if technically feasible.
  • Update or correct your information
  • Delete certain information
  • Restrict the use of your information

We will respond within the time period prescribed by applicable law. Please note that many of the above rights are subject to exceptions and limitations.

Some Services can only be provided if we have your information, therefore deletion of your information will result in termination of such Services. We will take reasonable steps to verify your identity, including authenticating you through the email address. We may require further documentation such as a password and user ID before granting access to your information.

California Consumer Privacy Rights

If you are a California resident, the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) allows you to make certain requests about your personal information. Specifically, the CCPA allows you to request:

  • Information about the categories of personal information we collect or disclose about you; the categories of sources of such information; the business or commercial purpose for collecting your personal information; and the categories of third parties with whom we share/disclose personal information. Such information is also set forth in this Privacy Policy.
  • Provide access to and/or a copy of certain information we hold about you.
  • Delete certain information we have about you.
  • Provide you with information about the financial incentives that we offer to you, if any.

The CCPA further provides you with the right to not be discriminated against (as provided for in applicable law) for exercising your rights.

We will consider all requests and provide our response within the time period stated by applicable law. Please note, however, that certain information may be exempt from such requests in some circumstances, which may include if we need to keep processing your information or to comply with a legal obligation. We will let you know where this is the case or if certain rights don’t apply in your country or state of residence. We also will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before responding to a request, which might include, at a minimum, depending on the sensitivity of the information you are requesting and the type of request you are making, verifying your name, email address, and date of birth. You are also permitted to designate an authorized agent to submit certain requests on your behalf. In order for an authorized agent to be verified, you must provide the authorized agent with signed, written permission to make such request or a power of attorney. We may also follow up with you to verify your identity before processing the authorized agent’s request.

Additionally, exercising your deletion right may mean that you may no longer be able to use the Service.

“Do Not Sell My Personal Information” (California Residents only)

California residents may opt out of the “sale” of their personal information. California law broadly defines “sale” in a way that may include allowing third parties to receive certain information such as cookies, IP address and/or browsing behavior to add to a profile about your device, browser, or you.

Depending on what Services you use, we may share the following categories of information for such advertising which may be considered a sale (as defined by California law):

  • Identification and demographics; device information and identifiers, such as IP address, and unique advertising identifiers and cookies; connection and usage information, such as browsing history or app usage; geolocation information, such as city; and inference data.

If you would like to opt out of the use of your information for such purposes (to the extent this is considered a sale), you may do so as by contacting us directly.

Third Parties’ List – Shine the Light (California Residents only)

California residents can also request a list of all the third parties to which we have disclosed certain personal information (as defined by California’s Shine the Light law) during the preceding year for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes. You will need to attest to the fact that you are a California resident. We will not accept requests by telephone, email, or facsimile, and we are not responsible for notices that are not labeled or sent properly, or that do not have complete information.

Nevada Residents

Nevada law requires us to post the following: certain Nevada consumers may opt out of the sale of “covered information” for monetary consideration to a person for that person to license or sell such information. “Covered information” includes first and last name, address, email address, phone number, Social Security Number, or an identifier that allows a specific person to be contacted either physically or online.
