4.1 Secure Socket Layer

We use Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) encryption when transmitting certain kinds of information, such as payment information or Personal Data. An icon resembling a padlock is displayed in most browsers’ window or address bar during SSL transactions. For example, any time we ask for a credit card number for payment or for verification purposes, it will be SSL encrypted in its transmission to our third party payment gateway, Authorize.net, Dragonpay or Paypal. The information you provide will be stored securely on Authorize.net, Dragonpay or Paypal services. Once you choose to store or enter your credit card number in our Services, it will not be displayed back in its entirety. Instead of the entire number combination, you will only see asterisks and either the first four digits or the last four digits of your credit card number.

4.2 Secure Storage

We maintain reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with Philippine laws and regulations, and with International Privacy Policies to protect personal information about you.

4.3 Vendors and Partners

We work with vendors and partners to protect the security and privacy of user information. Our Services are hosted on a secure server which has its own procedures and controls to ensure data security.

4.4 Personnel and Contractor Access to Personal Data

We limit access to personal information to trained personnel who will or might come into contact with said information in the course of providing our products and services.

  1. Choices You Have Regarding Your Personal Data

5.1 Accessing, Updating, Correcting, or Deleting Your Personal Data

Upon request, we will provide you with information about whether we maintain or process on behalf of a third party, any of your Personal Data. If your personal information changes, the Personal Data we collected about you is inaccurate, or if you wish to no longer use our services, you may also request that your Personal Data be corrected, amended, or deleted. Requests for access to your Personal Data and to have it corrected, amended, or deleted should be sent to hello@raceyaya.com or to the mailing address provided under “Contact Us”. We will try to meet all requests regarding Personal Data, however, you may not be able to remove your personal information from archived web pages we no longer maintain, such as your name and race time from past events you’ve competed in. If we are unable to complete your access request, we will let you know we are unable to do so and why. We may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law.

If your information has been shared with a third party, as described above, then that third party has received their own copy of your data. If you have been contacted by one of these third parties and you wish to correct or request deletion of your information, please contact them directly.

5.2 Limiting the Personal Data You Provide

You can browse our Services without providing any Personal Data (other than data automatically collected to the extent it is considered Personal Data under applicable laws) or by limiting the Personal Data you provide. If you choose not to provide any Personal Data or limit the Personal Data you provide, you may not be able to use certain functionality of the Services.

5.3 Opting Out of Electronic Communications

RaceYaya may send you electronic communications marketing or advertising our Services or events. When you sign up and use our Services, you will be given the option to sign up for “RaceYaya News and Updates” and “Partner Offers” from us or other third parties. If at any time you would like to stop receiving the information that you have requested to receive from us, you may follow the opt-out instructions contained in any such electronic communication. Additionally, you may also manage your email preferences at any time through your account.

If you opt-out of receiving emails or promotions from us, we may still send you emails about your account or any Services you have requested or received from us, or for other customer services purposes. In addition, you may still receive emails sent by third parties through means other than our Services. If you opt-out of receiving information related to a particular event, you may still receive RaceYaya communications or communications from other organizers whose events you have attended, are registered to attend, or who have otherwise obtained your email address. You may have to unsubscribe from multiple emails before you stop receiving all communications related to events for which you registered through our Services.

Please be aware that you cannot unsubscribe from update communications about our Services unless you deactivate your account. If you wish to close your account, please email hello@raceyaya.com. Even after you opt-out of all communications, we will retain your Personal Data in accordance with this Privacy Policy, as provided under “6. Retention of Your Personal Data”, though we will no longer use it to contact you. However, third parties who have received your Personal Data in accordance with this Privacy Policy may still use that Personal Data to contact you in accordance with their own privacy policies. You will need to contact those third parties in order to have your information deleted from their records as well. If you wish to not have your Personal Data shared with third parties for the creation and display of targeted advertisements, you will need to close your account. You can do so by emailing us at hello@raceyaya.com.

5.4 Social Media Notifications

If you connect a third party application through SSO or sign up for other social media integrations, you may receive social notifications from these additional services or from RaceYaya’s Services. You can manage these social notifications by toggling your social settings to private or disconnecting such integration. For more information regarding connection of third party applications, see “3.7 Third Party Applications”.

  1. Retention of Your Personal Data

We may retain your Personal Data as long as you are registered to use our Services. You may close your account by contacting us by email at hello@raceyaya.com or by mail at the address listed under “13. Contact Us”. However, please be aware that we may retain Personal Data for an additional period as required under applicable laws. After we delete your Personal Data, it may exist on backup or archival media or servers for an additional period of time for legal, tax, or regulatory reasons, or for legitimate and lawful business purposes.

  1. Cookies, Web Beacons, Etc.

7.1 What Cookies and Web Beacons Are

Cookies are small data files placed onto your computer or mobile device when you visit a website which allows our Services to distinguish you from other users, allow the Services to work properly, as well as to help monitor advertising effectiveness.

Web beacons work similar to cookies, however, instead of a file stored on your computer, web beacons are embedded invisibly on web pages.

We use cookies, web beacons, tags, and other similar tracking technologies to track when you visit our websites and mobile applications (collectively, “Cookies”). We also allow third parties to place Cookies on our Services to assist with advertising.

7.2 How We Use Cookies

There are several reasons we use Cookies on our Services. Some of these Cookies are necessary for technical reasons and help our Services to operate as intended for your benefit (“Essential Cookies”), such as access to secure areas of the Services. Other types of Cookies are used for analytical purposes such as how our Services are being used, the effectiveness of advertising shown as you use the Services, and to customize advertising to you (“Analytical Cookies”). While these types of Cookie help us create new features, improve on our existing Services, and provide advertisements of interest to you, our Services can function without them.

7.3 Controlling Cookies

You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject Cookies. You can exercise your Cookie preferences by activating the setting on your web browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some Cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including Essential Cookies), you may not be able to access or use all or parts of our Services. If you have not adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue Cookies as soon as you visit our Services. Blocking or deleting Cookies will not prevent device identification and related data collection from occurring when you access our Services. Turning off Analytical

Cookies will prevent their ability to measure the relevance and effectiveness of our Services, emails, and advertising as well as to show you tailored advertising, however this does not mean you will no longer see any advertisements when you use our Services.

  1. Children

Users under the age of eighteen should use the website with adult supervision, including registration for an event. If you are aware of a user under the age of eighteen (18) who has provided Personal Data through our Services, please contact us at hello@raceyaya.com. Parents and legal guardians may choose to provide information about their children, even if under the age of eighteen (18), for the purposes of event registration on our Services. Please be aware that the results of all events, including name, age, gender, and results time, are made publicly available and published online after an event’s completion.

  1. Terms of Use

Your use of our Services, as well as any dispute over privacy, is subject to this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service, available at our Data Privacy Page and incorporated by reference here.

  1. Exclusions

11.1 Personal Data Provided to Others

This Privacy Policy does not apply to any Personal Data that you provide to another user or visitor through the Services or through any other means, including those provided to organizers on event pages or information posted by you to any public areas of the services.

11.2 Third Party Links

This Privacy Policy applies only to the Services we offer. The Services may contain links to other websites not operated or controlled by us (the “Third Party Sites”). The policies and procedures we described here do not apply to the Third Party Sites. The links from the Services do not imply that we endorse or have reviewed the Third Party Sites. We suggest contacting those sites directly for information on their privacy policies.

11.3 Aggregated Personal Data

In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of our Services, we often conduct research on our customer demographics, interests, and behavior based on Personal Data and other information that we have collected. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis. Please note that this aggregate information does not identify you personally and we therefore consider and treat this data as Non-Personal Data.

  1. Changes to This Privacy Policy

RaceYaya reserves the right to update or modify this Privacy Policy at any time. If we make changes to this Privacy Policy, we will post the revised Privacy Policy to our website with a changed “Last Updated” date at the top of this Privacy Policy. All changes are effective 30 days after posting. Your continued use of Services following the effectiveness of any changes constitutes acceptance of those changes. If you do not agree with any of the changes to the Privacy Policy, you should cease accessing, browsing, or otherwise using of the Services we provide, and close your account by emailing us at hello@raceyaya.com.
