Privacy Policy

RankmyRace Privacy Policy
We have created Rankmyrace to make it easy to share information and network with your club, school and friends through many common sporting activities. We understand you may not want everyone in the world to have the information you share on RankmyRace so we have made it possible for you to control who sees this information. Our default privacy settings limit the information displayed in your profile to your networks and other reasonable community limitations that we tell you about.
RankmyRace follows two core principles:
You should have control over your personal information. RankmyRace helps you share information with your activity network. You choose what information you put in your profile, including contact and personal information, pictures, interests and groups you join.
You should have access to the information others want to share. There is an increasing amount of information available out there, and you may want to know what relates to you, your friends, and people around you. We want to help you easily get that information.
Sharing information should be easy. If you have questions or ideas, please send them to

Use of Information Obtained by RankmyRace
When you register with Rankmyrace, you create your individual profile and privacy settings. Your profile information, as well as your name, email and photo, are displayed to people in the networks specified in your privacy settings to enable you to connect with people on Rankmyrace. We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services offered by Rankmyrace that we think you may find valuable.
Profile information is used by Rankmyrace primarily to be presented back to and edited by you when you access the service and to be presented to others permitted to view that information by your privacy settings. In some cases where your privacy settings permit it (e.g., posting to your wall), other Rankmyrace users may be able to supplement your profile.
Profile information you submit to Rankmyrace will be available to users of Rankmyrace who belong to at least one of the networks you allow to access the information through your privacy settings (e.g., team, geography, friends of friends). Your name, network names, and profile picture thumbnail will be available in search results across the whole Rankmyrace network and those limited pieces of information may be made available to third party search engines. This is primarily so your friends can find you and send a friend request. People who see your name in searches, however, will not be able to access your profile information unless they have a connection to you (friend, friend of friend, member of your networks, etc.) that allows such access based on your privacy settings.
Rankmyrace may send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. For instance, if a friend sends you a new message or poke, or someone posts on your wall, you may receive an email alerting you to that fact.
Rankmyrace may send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. For instance, if a friend sends you a new message or poke, or someone posts on your wall, you may receive an email alerting you to that fact.
Generally, you may opt out of such emails here, though Rankmyrace reserves the right to send you notices about your account even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.
Rankmyrace may use information in your profile without identifying you as an individual to third parties. We do this for purposes such as aggregating how many people in a network like an activity or event and personalizing advertisements and promotions so that we can provide the user with relevant information. We believe this benefits you. You can know more about the world around you and, where there are advertisements, they're more likely to be interesting to you. For example, if you put a favourite event in your profile, we might serve you an advertisement highlighting a screening of the event or similar one in your town.
Sharing Your Information with Third Parties
Rankmyrace is about sharing information with others – participants, schools, clubs and fans in your network - while providing you with privacy settings that restrict other users from accessing your information. We allow you to choose the information you provide to friends and networks through Rankmyrace. Our network architecture and your privacy settings allow you to make informed choices about who has access to your information. We do not provide contact information to third party marketers without your permission. We share your information with third parties only in limited circumstances where we believe such sharing is 1) reasonably necessary to offer the service, 2) legally required or, 3) permitted by you. For example:
Your activity-feeds may aggregate the information you provide and make it available to your friends and network members according to your privacy settings.
We may provide information to service providers to help us bring you the services we offer. Specifically, we may use third parties to facilitate our business, such as to host the service at a co-location facility for servers, to send out email updates about Rankmyrace, to remove repetitive information from our user lists, to process payments for products or services, to offer an online job application process, or to provide search results or links (including sponsored links). In connection with these offerings and business operations, our service providers may have access to your personal information for use for a limited time in connection with these business activities. Where we utilize third parties for the processing of any personal information, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information to the Rankmyrace -specified purposes.
We occasionally provide demonstration accounts that allow non-users a glimpse into the Rankmyrace world. Such accounts have only limited capabilities (e.g., messaging is disabled) and passwords are changed regularly to limit possible misuse.
We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information until we have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the Rankmyrace service or using the Rankmyrace name, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.
Rankmyrace is a means of sharing actions you have taken on third party sites, such as when you make a purchase or post a review, with your friends on Rankmyrace. In order to provide you as a Rankmyrace user with clear disclosure of the activity information being collected on third party sites and potentially shared with your friends on Rankmyrace, we collect certain information from that site and present it to you after you have completed an action on that site. You have the choice to have Rankmyrace discard that information, or to share it with your friends.
Like many other websites that interact with third party sites, we may receive some information even if you are logged out from Rankmyrace, or that pertains to non- Rankmyrace users, from those sites in conjunction with the technical operation of the system. In cases where Rankmyrace receives information on users that are not logged in, or on non- Rankmyrace users, we do not attempt to associate it with individual Rankmyrace accounts and will discard it.
If the ownership of all or substantially all of the Rankmyrace business, or individual business units owned by Iamfootball, were to change, your user information may be transferred to the new owner so the service can continue operations. In any such transfer of information, your user information would remain subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy.
When you use Rankmyrace, certain information you post or share with third parties (e.g., a friend or someone in your network), such as personal information, comments, messages, photos, videos or other information, may be shared with other users in accordance with the privacy settings you select. All such sharing of information is done at your own risk. Please keep in mind that if you disclose personal information in your profile or when posting comments, messages, photos, videos, Marketplace listings or other items , this information may become publicly available.
Rankmyrace may contain links to other websites. We are of course not responsible for the privacy practices of other web sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by Rankmyrace.
