We may collect and store information about you in connection with your use of the Trivia Matrix, including any information you transmit to the Trivia Matrix. We use that information to provide the Trivia Matrix’s functionality, improve the Trivia Matrix’s quality, engage in research and analysis relating to the Trivia Matrix, personalize your experience, track usage of the Trivia Matrix, display relevant advertising, market the Trivia Matrix, provide customer support, message you, back up our systems, allow for disaster recovery, enhance the security of the Trivia Matrix, and comply with legal obligations. Even when we do not retain such information, it still must be transmitted to our servers initially and stored long enough to process.
Please also note:
Account Information: If you create a Trivia Matrix account, we may store and use the information you provide during that process, such as your full name, email address, postal code, zip code, physical address, and other information you may provide with your account, such as your gender, phone number, and birth date. We may publicly display your user name, as well as any photo or other content you submit through the registration process, as part of your account profile. You can modify some of the information associated with your account through your account settings. If you believe that someone has created an unauthorized account depicting you or your likeness, you can request its removal by flagging it.
Contacts: You can invite others to join Trivia Matrix by providing us with their contact information, or by allowing us to access your contacts from your computer, mobile device, or third party sites to select which individuals you want to invite. If you allow us to access your contacts, we may transmit that information to our servers long enough to process your invitations.
Activity: We may store information about your use of the Trivia Matrix. We may also store information that your computer or mobile device may provide to us in connection with your use of the Trivia Matrix, such as your browser type, type of computer or mobile device, browser language, IP address, WiFi information such as SSID, mobile carrier, phone number, unique device identifier, advertising identifier, location (including geolocation, beacon based location, and GPS location), and requested and referring URLs and mobile applications. We may also receive and store your location whenever our mobile applications are running, including when running in the background, if you enable our mobile apps to access such information in the course of using the Trivia Matrix. You may be able to limit or disallow our use of certain location data through your device or browser settings, for example by adjusting the “Location Services” settings for our applications in iOS privacy settings.
Different Devices: You may access the Trivia Matrix through different devices (e.g., your mobile phone or personal computer) and different platforms. The information that we collect and store through those different uses may be cross-referenced and combined, and your contributions through one platform will typically be similarly visible and accessible through all other Trivia Matrix platforms.
Legal Basis for Processing: For residents of the EEA and Switzerland only, our legal basis for collecting and using the information described above will depend on the specific information concerned and the context in which we collect it. We, however, will normally collect personal information from you only where we have your consent to do so, where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you, or where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you or may otherwise need the personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person (for instance, to prevent, investigate, or identify possible wrongdoing in connection with the Trivia Matrix or to comply with legal obligations). If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information). If we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), this interest will typically be to operate our Services, communicate with you in relation to our Services, or for our other legitimate commercial interests, for instance, when responding to your queries, to analyze and improve our platform, engage in marketing, or for the purposes of detecting or preventing fraud. If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal information, please contact us at the address listed below in the “Contact” section.
You can set some Cookie preferences through your device or browser settings. The method for disabling Cookies may vary by device and browser, but can usually be found in your device or browser preferences or security settings. For example, iOS and Android devices each have settings which are designed to limit forms of ad tracking. For flash cookies, you can manage your privacy settings by clicking here. Please note that changing any of these settings does not prevent the display of certain advertisements to you.
Third parties may receive information about you as follows:
Service Providers: We may rely on third party providers to support or provide some of the services that are available through the Trivia Matrix, such as reservations and food delivery. We may also rely on third party providers to perform certain services for us in connection with your use of the Trivia Matrix, such as communications and hosting services, network security, technical and customer support, tracking and reporting functions, quality assurance testing, payment processing, our own marketing of the Trivia Matrix, and other functions. We may share information from or about you with these third party providers so that they can perform their services or complete your requests. These third party providers may share information with us that they obtain from or about you in connection with providing their services or completing your requests. Third party providers may also share this information with their subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under common control. Some of our web pages utilize framing techniques to serve content to you from our third party providers, while preserving the look and feel of the Trivia Matrix. In such cases, please note that the information you provide is being provided to the third party.
Aggregate or Anonymous Information: We may share user information in the aggregate with third parties, such as businesses that are listed on the Trivia Matrix and content distributors. For example, we may disclose the number of users that have been exposed to or clicked on advertisements. We may also disclose anonymized information about your use on the Trivia Matrix. For example, if you engage in a transaction in connection with the Trivia Matrix, we may publicly disclose information about the transaction without providing additional identifying information about you or otherwise disclosing your participation in the transaction.
Investigations and Legal Disclosures: We may investigate and disclose information from or about you if we have a good faith belief that such investigation or disclosure: (a) is reasonably necessary to comply with legal processes and law enforcement instructions and orders, such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, judicial proceeding, or other legal process or law enforcement requests served on us; (b) is helpful to prevent, investigate, or identify possible wrongdoing in connection with the Trivia Matrix; or (c) protects our rights, reputation, property, or that of our users, affiliates, or the public.
Links: The Trivia Matrix may link to third party services, like a business’s URL. Except as set forth herein, we do not share your personal information with them, and are not responsible for their privacy practices. We suggest you read the privacy policies on or applicable to all such third party services.
Third Party Accounts: If you sign up for, or log into, Trivia Matrix using a third party service like Facebook or Google, or link your Trivia Matrix account to your account with a third party service like Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, we may receive information about you from such third party service. If you post content to a third party service through the Trivia Matrix, that third party service will also receive that content, which will be visible to anyone that has access to it through that third party service.
Other users may be able to identify you, or associate you with your account, if you include personal information in the content you post publicly. You can reduce the risk of being personally identified by using the Trivia Matrix pseudonymously.
If you are a resident of the EEA or Switzerland, you have the right to access, correct, update or request deletion of your personal information. You can object to the processing of your personal information, ask us to restrict processing of your personal information or request portability of your personal information. Similarly, if we have collected and processed your personal information with your consent, then you can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your personal information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent. You also have the right to opt-out of marketing communications we send you at any time. The Trivia Matrix generally provides you with a reasonable means to view and change your profile information and you can opt-out of marketing communications at any time by clicking on the “unsubscribe” or “opt-out” link in the marketing emails we send you or in your account settings. However, if you have any questions or concerns about the processing of your personal information, you may contact us as outlined in the “Contact” section below.
We use various safeguards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet or via mobile device, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
