We collect personally identifiable information about you, including your name, email address, WeChat ID, and residential state when you voluntarily submit such information to us by, for example, filling out a survey, a membership or game registration form or similar data collection instrument. We also collect the volume and type of game you attend, your event or game preferences, the date your dues are paid and your last activity date for the purpose of providing our services. We compile games you won in our events and track your game status so we can provide you with your approximate overall ranking relative to other members from our web site.
We automatically collect information about you in a number of ways. When you visit our website, we may collect information such as your IP address, browser type, domain name, access times and referring website address. We may also collect certain information regarding your interaction with our emails/WeChat (“communication data”). Communication data may include page visits, purchases or other interactions with emails/WeChat we send to you. This information helps us facilitate your online experience and monitor and improve our website and email communications.
