As an entity established in the United States), the main privacy laws that are applicable to US in so far as You are concerned, are the following:

Federal Law Privacy Policy Requirements:

All the above is referred to collectively as the “Data Protection Laws”


“PERSONAL DATA” means any information that identifies You as an individual or that relates to an identifiable individual.

Whenever it is not possible or feasible for Us to make use of anonymous and/or anonymized data (in a manner that does not identify any Users of the Site, Apps or customers of Our services), We are nevertheless committed to protecting Your privacy and the security of Your Personal Data at all times. We collect Personal Data in various ways, digitally via the Site or the Apps (either when you choose to provide Us with certain data or in some cases automatically, or from third parties).


We collect various categories of Personal Data from you, namely:



Contact Details

Full legal name, email address, residential address and mobile/phone number.


IP address of the computer connected to the internet, location data through the mobile phone and Apps used and GPS data.

National Identifier

A number or code attributed to you by a government to identify who you are, such as a passport number or national identity number (including nationality).

Usage date

Details about how and when you use Our services (our Site and/or Apps)

Documentary Data

Details about You that are stored in documents in different formats, or copies of them.

This includes passports, identity cards and utility bills that confirm Your identity and prove the residential address; as well as any other additional documentation as deemed necessary by Our compliance team

Special types of data

Data Protection Laws treat some types of personal information as special, which We will only collect and use if the law allows Us to do so. Such data consist of:


As a general rule, We do not collect any Personal Data, that is, information that identifies You as an individual other than that which You choose to provide to Us such as the data (including Contact Details) You provide when registering with our Site or Apps, when contacting Us with enquiries relating to Our services, when subscribing to any service offered by Us or via Our Site or Apps, such as any newsletters as may be issued by Us from time to time or even when subscribing to any offers We (and/or Our affiliates and/or corporate partners) may offer from time to time.

However, we may also collect personal data from other sources, including data companies, publicly accessible databases, joint marketing partners, social media platform and other third parties. We may also receive Personal Data about You from third parties when We need to confirm Your contact details. Should this be the case, We will take all measures as required by law to further inform You about the source of such Personal Data as well as the categories of Personal Data We collect and process. There are certain instances at law where We are specifically forbidden from disclosing to You such activity (for example, when carrying out due diligence for anti-money laundering purposes).

For information about the Personal Data that We may collect automatically via the Site or Apps, please see the Cookies section below. Unless otherwise specified and subject to various controls, as a general rule, We only collect Personal Data (from You or elsewhere) that We:

A detailed description of the reasons why We process specific categories of personal data as well as the corresponding legal ground(s) for doing so, please see the ‘What We Use Your Personal Data For (Purpose of Processing)’ below.


The Data Protection Laws permit Us to use personal data only if We have a proper reason to do so.  Data Protection Laws state that we must have one or more of these reasons:

Below is a description of what We use Your Personal Data for and the corresponding legal ground(s) we rely on for doing so.

Please note that where We rely on Your consent, this can be withdrawn at will.

Should We need to process Your data for a new purpose in the future, which is entirely unrelated to the above, We will inform You of such processing in advance and You may exercise Your applicable rights (as explained below) in relation to such processing.

Finally, do note that without certain Personal Data relating to You, We may not be in the position to provide some or all of the services You expect from Us or even to guarantee the full functionality of Our Site and/or App.

8. Region Specific Disclosures

We may choose or be required by law to provide different or additional disclosures relating to the processing of personal information about residents of certain countries, regions or states. Please refer below for disclosures that may be applicable to you:


In those limited cases, We will process Your Personal Data based on Your consent, which We will obtain from You in a clear and manifest manner. In such cases where You provide Us with Your consent, You shall have the right to withdraw Your consent at any time and this, in the same manner as You shall have provided it to Us unless an alternative option is provided by Us.

Should You exercise Your right to withdraw Your consent at any time (by writing to Us at the physical or email address below), We will determine whether at that stage an alternative legal basis exists for processing Your Personal Data (for example, based on a legal obligation to which We are subject) where We would be legally authorized (or even obliged) to process Your Personal Data without needing Your consent and if so, notify You accordingly.

When We ask for such Personal Data, You may always decline, however, should You decline to provide Us with necessary data that We require to provide requested services, We may not necessarily be able to provide You with such service (such as location services), especially if consent is the only legal ground that is available to Us.

Just to clarify, consent is not the only ground that permits Us to process Your Personal Data. In the above Section 7, We pointed out the various grounds that We rely on when processing Your Personal Data for specific purposes.


All reasonable efforts are made to keep any Personal Data We may hold about You up-to-date and as accurate as possible. You can check the information that We hold about You at any time by contacting Us in the manner explained below. If You find any inaccuracies, We will correct them and where required, delete them as necessary. Please see below for a detailed list of Your legal rights in terms of any applicable Data Protection Laws.


We only send mail messages, emails and other communications relating to marketing where We are authorized to do so at law. In most cases, We rely on your consent to do so (especially where we use electronic communications). If, at any time, You no longer wish to receive direct marketing communications from Us please let Us know by contacting Us at the details below or update Your preference on any of Our Site(s) or Apps.

In the case of direct marketing sent by electronic communications (where We are legally authorized to do so) You shall be given an easy way of opting out (or unsubscribing) from any such communications.

Please note that even if You withdraw any consent You may have given Us or if You object to receiving such direct marketing material from Us (in those cases where We do not need Your consent), from time to time We may still need to send You certain important communications from which You cannot opt out.


As a general principle, the Personal Data We process about You (collected via any of our Sites or Apps or otherwise) will be stored and processed within the United States of America. You are welcome to contact Us for more information regarding the adequate safeguards we have in place in relation to any data transfers.


You will be aware that data sent via the Internet may be transmitted across international borders even where sender and receiver of information are in the same country. We cannot be held responsible for anything done or omitted to be done by You or any third party in connection with any Personal Data prior to Our receiving it is including but not limited to any transfers of Personal Data from You to Us via a country having a lower level of data protection than that in place in the United States, and this, by any technological means whatsoever.

Moreover, We shall accept no responsibility or liability whatsoever for the security of Your data while in transit through the internet unless Our responsibility results explicitly from a law having effect in the United States.


Without prejudice to anything contained in this Privacy Policy and in the interest of full transparency, We reserve the right to disclose (and otherwise process) any relevant Personal Data relating to You which We may be processing (including in certain cases relevant IP addresses) to authorized third parties in or outside the United States if such disclosures are allowed under the Data Protection Laws (whether or not You have provided Your consent) including but not limited to the following instances:

In the event of Socios Services US Inc.


Relevant data will also be disclosed or shared as appropriate (and in all cases in line with the Data Protection Laws) to/with members and staff of Socios Services US Inc. and/or sub-contractors established within the United States if pertinent to any of the purposes listed in this Privacy Policy (including to/with Our services providers who facilitate the functionality of our Site and App and/or any service You may require).

Any such authorized disclosures will be done in accordance with the Data Protection Laws (for example all Our processors are contractually bound by the requirements in the said Data Protection Laws, including a strict obligation to keep any information they receive confidential and to ensure that their employees/personnel are also bound by similar obligations). 

Your Personal Data will also be shared with our business partners, particularly the sports teams whose branded goods and services You have specifically opted to use, buy or interact through our Site and/or App. However, your Personal Data will never be processed by such third parties for their marketing purposes (unless You give Your consent thereto).

The third parties who We may disclose to and/or share Your Personal Data with are, at the date of this Privacy Policy, the following:


The Personal Data which We may hold (and/or transfer to any affiliates/partners/subcontractors as the case may be) will be held securely in accordance with Our internal security policy and the applicable law.

We use reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of any and/or all Personal Data that We may process relating to you and regularly review and enhance Our technical, physical and managerial procedures so as to ensure that Your Personal Data is protected from:

We have implemented security policies, rules and technical and organizational measures to protect the Personal Data that We may have under our control. All our members, staff and data processors (including specific subcontractors and cloud service providers established within the United States), who may have access to and are associated with the processing of Personal Data, are further obliged (under contract) to respect the confidentiality of Our Users’ or clients’ Personal Data as well as other obligations as imposed by the Data Protection Laws.

Despite all the above, We cannot guarantee that a data transmission or a storage system can ever be 100% secure. Authorized third parties, and external/third-party service providers, with permitted access to your Personal Data (as explained in this Privacy Policy) are specifically required to apply appropriate technical and organizational security measures that may be necessary to safeguard the Personal Data being processed from unauthorized or accidental disclosure, loss or destruction and from any unlawful forms of processing.

As stated above, the said service providers are also bound by several other obligations in line with the Data Protection Laws 


We will retain Your Personal Data only for as long as is necessary (taking into consideration the purpose for which it was originally obtained). The criteria We use to determine what is ‘necessary’ depends on the Personal Data in question and the specific relationship We have with you (including its duration).

Our standard practice is to determine whether there is/are any specific US law(s) (for example tax or corporate laws) permitting or even obliging Us to keep certain Personal Data for a certain period of time (in which case We will keep the Personal Data for the maximum period indicated by any such law).

We would also have to determine whether there are any laws and/or contractual provisions that may be invoked against Us by You and/or third parties and if so, what the prescriptive periods for such actions are (this is usually five (5) years). In the latter case, we will keep any relevant Personal Data that We may need to defend Ourselves against any claim(s), challenge(s) or other such action(s) by You and/or third parties for such time as is necessary.

We will retain your Personal Data on Our systems for the longest of the following periods:

Where Your Personal Data is no longer required by Us, we will either securely delete or anonymize the Personal Data in question.


Research and statistics using User or client information is only carried out so that We may understand Our Users’ and/or clients’ needs and to develop and improve Our services/activities. In any case, We will always ensure to obtain any consent We may legally require from You beforehand. As in all other cases, we will also ensure to implement all appropriate safeguards as may be necessary.


Links that We may provide to third-party websites are clearly marked and We are not in any way whatsoever responsible for (nor can We be deemed to endorse in any way) the content of such websites (including any applicable privacy policies or data processing operations of any kind). We suggest that You should view the privacy policies of any such third-party websites.


When You visit Our site, or use our App, We will collect certain categories of Personal Data automatically using cookies and similar technologies. For more detailed information including what cookies are and how and why We process such data in this manner (including the difference between ‘essential’ and ‘non-essential’ cookies) please read Our Detailed Cookies Policy.


Our Site, App and services are not intended to be used by any person under the age of sixteen (18) and therefore We will never intentionally collect any Personal Data from such persons. If You are under the age of consent, please consult and get Your parent’s or legal guardian’s permission to use the site, App and any of Our other services.

We shall consider that any Personal Data of any persons under the age of sixteen (18) received by Us, shall be sent with the proper authority from the holder of parental responsibility over the child and that the sender can demonstrate such authority at any time, upon Our request.


Before addressing any request, you make with Us, we may first need to verify Your identity.

As explained in the Retention Periods section above, we may need to keep certain Personal Data for compliance with Our legal retention obligations but also to complete transactions that You requested prior to the change or deletion that You requested.

Under certain circumstances, by law You have the right to:


We may need to request specific information from You to help us understand the nature of Your complaint or request, to confirm Your identity and ensure Your right to access the information (or to exercise any of Your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

Should your requests in exercising your abovementioned rights be manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular because of their repetitive nature, We reserve the right to charge You a reasonable fee which shall be determined at Our sole discretion, taking into account the administrative costs incurred by us to provide the information or communication or taking the action requested by You. We shall communicate to you in advance the fee amount that will be charged in the given circumstances.


In all cases, we will try to act on your requests as soon as reasonably possible, within a maximum of one month of receipt of the request, which period may be extended by two (2) more months where necessary, considering the complexity and number of the requests. We shall inform You of any such extension within one (1) month of receipt of the request, together with the reasons for the delay.
