Please read this Privacy Policy carefully to understand our practices regarding our use and treatment of your personal information. By using our website, applications, or other online services (our “Service”), you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

Our business revolves around performance analysis and creating an objective analysis of performance, providing a simple and digestible view into performance with the aim of creating greater opportunities for athletes, clubs, leagues, and other stakeholders in the football ecosystem.  Whether you are a player sharing information with us directly, a club sharing information on your players, a league sharing information on players within your clubs or a federation, we will share player information through our Services.  If you do not wish to have your personal information shared, you must notify us to remove your personal information.  If you are a club, league or federation sharing personal information of your stakeholders with us, you represent and warrant that all player personal information you have shared with us is in compliance with the applicable Privacy Laws.

  • In the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we will disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets.
  • If we or substantially all of our assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by us about our customers will be one of the transferred assets.

If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our rights under other agreements; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of GG8, our customers, or others.

  • Correct or supplement any information we hold about you that is incorrect or incomplete.
