Your privacy is important to us.

 

Privacy Policy of footballmakeshistory.eu

This website collects some Personal Data from its Users. Information collected is often defined as being either anonymous or personally identifiable:

  • Anonymous Information refers to information that cannot be tied back to a specific individual. For instance, we may know that thousands of people have visited this Privacy Policy, but we do not necessarily know their names, where they live, or their date of birth. What we collect from visits such as this constitutes anonymous information. You do not have to provide us with any personal information. Some of the individuals who access our Services decline to use the personalization features that are available to them, and therefore those individuals are anonymous to us and the only data we collect about them is anonymous information.
  • Personally Identifiable Information refers to information that tells us specifically who you are, such as your name or email address.

We keep this information for a reasonable period of time. You have the right to withdraw your consent to use of your Personally Identifiable Information at any time.
