How and Why Personal Information is Collected
The personal information is mainly your name, email address, postal address, age/date of birth, phone number, as well as any additional relevant information you may wish to include in your message when contacting us.

As required by applicable law, you may, at your discretion, opt-out from these types of emails.

Participation in Contests or other Promotions
When you use our Site or PTF Games we may use a variety of technologies that collect information about how our Site or PTF Games are accessed and used.

Although such electronic information is not personal information by nature, PTF will treat it as personal information from the moment this non-personal information is combined with personal information, as the case may be.
Furthermore, when you visit our Site, we may insert a data file on your computer, such as a cookie or another file of similar nature. Cookies allow us to store certain types of information relating to the use that you make of our Site, including your preferred language.

Most Internet browsers allow you to erase these cookies from your computer’s hard drive, to block them or to receive a warning before they are downloaded. Please refer to your browser’s instructions to find out more about these functions. If you refuse the cookies, you will still have access to the Site, but your navigation may be affected.
Storage and Communication of Personal Information
PTF stores personal information for a reasonable period of time, either to achieve its objectives or to comply with the law, whichever time frame is longer. Our storage criteria depend on the kind of information collected.
Once the objectives have been reached and your personal information is no longer useful or if you ask us to delete this information, we ensure that it remains anonymous or we destroy it in a way that ensures its protection against unauthorized access or communication.
We never disclose your personal information to any third party outside of PTF without your consent, with the exception of the following:
We do not share your personal information with our promotional partners unless you have authorized us to communicate your personal information in such a fashion, or if necessary for the sole purposes of sending you a prize, in compliance with the contest rules.
Information you Agree to Share
When using PTF Games, you authorize PTF to publicly display on PTF Games or on our Site statistical data such as your prediction, ranking, achievements generated through your participation, as well as your name, profile picture and the fact that you have won a prize, as the case may be.
Feedbacks, Comments and Suggestions
If you provide feedback, ideas or suggestions to PTF in connection with the PTF Games, our Site or services (“Feedback”), you acknowledge that the Feedback is not confidential and you authorize PTF to use that Feedback without restriction and without payment to you.
Personal Information Concerning Minors
Information on our Site is not intended for minors under the age of 13 years old. PTF does not knowingly collect personal information about minors under the age of 13 years old.
Data is stored on servers equipped with the appropriate security systems to protect it against access from unauthorized persons and misuse. This information is only made available to persons (employees or mandataries) who need access to this information to carry out their responsibilities. Your personal information may be maintained and processed by affiliates or third party service providers on servers in Canada, the United States and other countries.
