BowScore collects data about you and your activities. We gather only what we need to provide our services.

Your choices regarding collection and use of such data
What We Collect
We collect data you provide (e.g. name, e-mail, phone, sport member numbers) that is necessary to provide our services. We strive to protect this with modern security approaches and tools. That is currently:
First and Last Name
Member numbers for various sports organizations
Android Advertising ID (for crash reporting in the apps)
A cookie and/or session variable used to store preferences and other service controls
Clubs you follow or compete with
Tournaments you are registered for or have competed in
We also collect data about your activities (e.g. tournaments you’ve shot, tournaments you are registered for, where you are using our services (although we do not store that).
Google may collect and aggregate device-specific information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information including phone number).
When you use our services or view content provided by BowScore, we automatically collect and store certain information in server logs. This includes the following data:
details of how you used our service, such as your tournament search queries, Internet protocol address, device event information such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL, cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your BowScore Account.
When you use BowScore services, we may get information about your actual location. We use various technologies to determine location, including IP address, GPS, and other sensors that may, for example, provide BowScore with information on nearby devices, Wi-Fi access points and cell towers. We do not store this information permanently but use it during your use of the service to provide better quality service.
We may collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches.
We and our partners (advertiser networks) use various technologies to collect and store information when you visit a BowScore service, and this may include using cookies or similar technologies to identify your browser or device. None of the services we use provide identifying information, all aggregate it.
We also use these technologies to collect and store information when you interact with services we offer to our partners, such as advertising services or BowScore features that may appear on other sites.
Information we collect when you are signed in to BowScore, in addition to information we obtain about you from partners, may be associated with your BowScore Account.
When information is associated with your BowScore Account, we treat it as personal information.
What we do with this information
We use it to provide BowScore services. We do not share it except:
As required to help sports organizations conduct their business.
As required by warrant, subpoena, or other order under law by a court in the United States of America. We may fight such requests, at our option.
Note that some information, such as your name, geographic region, sport member numbers, and other items necessary to conducting tournaments may be shared publicly as in accordance with the desires of the tournament or event authorities. We provide tournament directors ways to keep such information private and you should contact them regarding the privacy standards they apply to their events.
How can you control what data we collect and how it is used?
The data we collect is used to provide services. It’s really have it or no service. The best recommendation we have is that if the data we collect concerns you, then delete your account and use the services available to non-account holders (which are substantial).
If you have a deep privacy or security concern we recommend using an alias, alternate e-mail from your primary personal e-mail, and avoiding the use of your phone number in BowScore.
Note that deleting your account will just remove the database entries we create to manage and provide services in BowScore via the BowScore account system. It will not remove any possible data about your activity in tournaments. That data is not our data, but is provided and under control of the organizations that ran the event. They can remove you from that data, or they can remove the event (or hide or password protect it).
Apps, Website, Software
On Android devices, the Android Advertising ID could be sent to the automated crash reporting service to link crash reports with individual devices and is not shared with anyone outside of that
We value your privacy and take great care to provide modern security, encryption and modern software engineering approaches. If you are aware of a breach or possible hole in this, please contact us directly so we can fix it as soon as possible. Do not publicize it. Do not abuse it. Let us know.
If you have questions, suggestions, or are aware of a security privacy hole in our systems please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
