Last policy update: 25 April 2022
rise.global is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.
rise.global may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes.
We may collect the following information:
We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:
rise.global provides its service for both Administrators (people who create and manage scorebooks) and Players (people who participate in scorebooks).
rise.global is a data news platform so we work to ensure the data privacy needs of both Players and Administrators are protected, as well as retaining published bulletins in the public interest. As such different data items are controlled by the two different user types as follows:
Players control their profile, their name, their profile image, social network identities, their social network permissions, their email address. They may authorize some or all of these for use on a per scorebook basis.
Administrators control the scorebook name, description, look and feel, scoring calculation, player list and bulletin history (including score totals for each variable).
For privacy purposes rise.global takes the view that score entries are ultimately controlled by the player (eg. an individual tweet) while recognising that in many cases it is the administrator who enters scores on behalf of the player. A administrator may decide not to allow a particular score entry to be assigned points (e.g. an irrelevant or offensive tweet) while the player may decide to remove that score entry (e.g. the tweet) from consideration altogether.
rise.global only exercises a right to the data collected in order to provide its service to both administrators and players through the rise.global site and associated applications. rise.global may use de-identified or derived data for marketing purposes for example to report the number of users accessing the platform.
You may delete your data at any time by deleting your scorebook via Scorebook Settings. This will remove your Player list, all Data Entries and all Bulletins. This action will delete any orphaned Player accounts not associated with a different Scorebook or linked with a claimed Rise profile of another user.
At any time you may close your rise.global account by deactivating your account via your rise.global profile.
When you close your account we will:
Note that previous bulletins of scorebooks you have been on will be retained on behalf of the administrator (see who owns the data above).
