We value our SoccerToday readers and we understand that you value your privacy.

We take great pride in ensuring your visit to our soccer news site is one you enjoy. When you share information with us, we want you to know that we are committed to protecting your privacy. SoccerToday is the sole owner of the information collected on this site.

On January 1, 2020, the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) takes effect and sets new requirements and rights relating to personal information of California consumers.  

Accordingly, we are updating our Privacy Policy, as of January 1, 2020.

Here’s a brief overview of the changes:

Privacy Policy – We confirm that we DO NOT sell personal information and that we support all consumer privacy rights introduced under the CCPA. We never have, nor ever will, sell data to any third-party company.  And, we do not share data with anyone either. Nor do we rent data.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at PrivacyInfo@SoccerToday.com – this email reaches our reader success team.

For the purpose of a general understanding, “Personal information” is information that allows us to identify you. The types of Personal Information that we may collect from you includes your name, address, email, phone number, date of birth — in addition, we may collect account information, such as your username, password, credit card information and other payment information, if you wish to purchase an item or subscribe to a service.

We may collect personal information from you on or through the Web Site or Services in a variety of ways, including, when you register on the Web Site, purchase an item or a service, participate in online contests or surveys, sign-up for a newsletter or subscription or purchase merchandise.

Sometimes, SoccerToday will request additional information from customers through surveys, sweepstakes or other contests. Information requested may include contact and demographic information. In addition, we may automatically gather general statistical information about our website and visitors, such as IP addresses, browsers, pages viewed number of visitors, etc., but in doing so we do not reference you by individual name, e-mail address, home address, or telephone number. We use this data in the aggregate to determine how much our customers use parts of our site so we can improve the customer experience on our site.

We may collect information that does not identify you personally but is linked to your computer or device (“Device Identifiable Information”).  This is now a routine practice on the internet.
