INFORMATION COLLECTION, USAGE, AND SHARING
E-DanceSport is the sole owner of the information collected on our platform. We only have access to / collect information that you voluntarily submit to us via online registration forms, email, or other direct contact from you. We will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to process a payment.
We will not sell, rent, or otherwise share personally identifiable information to anyone, unless by request with prior written consent (e.g. for job opportunities related to positive exposure on our platform). We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers, but it will never be linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
E-DanceSport collects information from our users at several points throughout our platform:
To use our platform, a user must first complete a registration form which requires certain identifiable information such as Contact information (e.g. name, email address, phone number, city/country), Demographic information (e.g. age, dance experience level), Username and password. This information is used to contact you about the services in which you have expressed interest, and retained to facilitate your continued use of our platform, to register for events, and to allow you to manage your account.
To participate in our online dance competitions and challenges, a user must share original video or photographic content. We send this content to management personnel and accredited judges so they can properly and accurately conduct the event.
We request payment information from you when you submit competition entries or subscribe to our ongoing competition and content services. To buy from us, you must provide contact information (like name and billing address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date, etc.) This information is used only for billing purposes and to fill your order. If we have trouble processing an order, we’ll use this information to contact you. Financial information is transmitted directly to a third-party payment processor, who employs industry-standard, PCI-compliant security and encryption.
Server Logs and Website Analytics
We use standard server log files to analyze visitor trends, administer and troubleshoot our platforms, and gather technology statistics to help us improve. This information is not linked to personally identifiable information and is only used in the aggregate.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access and identify repeat visitors. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in using a password more than once, thereby saving time. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance your online experience. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information.

Newsletters or Surveys
You may receive electronic newsletters or surveys regarding E-DanceSport news, upcoming events, advancement opportunities, etc. If you wish your email to be removed simply contact us via email at email@example.com.
We contact platform users for various other reasons. If you opt-in to receive contacts from us or our partners, you can change your mind later. If at any time, you would like to stop receiving such information or opt-out of a feature, you can let us know by sending an email stating your preference to firstname.lastname@example.org. To help us address your request, please specify the feature from which you wish to top-out. You should be aware, however, that it is not always possible to completely remove or modify information in our databases and servers, without terminating your association with E-DanceSport completely, although we will always make reasonable efforts to do so upon your request.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information, know that it is protected both online and offline.
We operate entirely over a secure connection. Wherever we collect any information from users, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for “https” at the beginning of the address on the web page, or by identifying the secure indicator’s presence on your browser (usually a lock icon or green bar near the address bar).
While we use encryption to protect all information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
The platform may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave us to read the privacy statement of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
At times, we may partner with another party to provide specific services. If a user signs up for these services specifically, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
