a. Affiliates: We may share your personal information with our affiliates, parents, and
b. Service Providers: We may permit our vendors and subcontractors to access your personal

your transactions, we may share your personal information with certain third parties, such as
your credit card issuer, a third party credit verification company, the product handler, the
delivery service, and vendors who may ship product to you directly from their warehouse
(called drop-ship vendors). Other service provider examples include IT providers, internet

we endeavor to require the party to agree to protect the privacy and confidentiality of your
c. With Third Parties to Provide You with Services or Communications: We may disclose your

companies and other companies that may use the data to help us drive advertising-related
revenue (including those who may have registered in California as a “data broker”), and
partners who advertise on our sites to measure advertising effectiveness. We do not control
how Business Partners use and share your information once they receive it. You will need to
contact such Business Partners directly for information about their privacy practices or to
exercise rights you may have (including if you would like to opt-out of receiving future emails
from a Business Partner).
g. With other third parties with your consent.
5. Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
Like many other websites and applications, we may automatically collect certain information regarding
our Properties' users. Such information may include, without limitation, the Internet Protocol ("IP")
address (which may be used to determine your geographic location) of your computer/internet service
provider, your device ID, your zip code, the date and time you access the Properties, the Internet
address of a referring website, the operating system you are using, the sections or pages of the
Properties that you visit, and the images and content viewed. Some of the ways in which we or the
Properties may collect and use such information are further described below.
a. Clickstream Data. As you use the Internet, a trail of electronic information is left at each
website you visit. This information, sometimes referred to as "clickstream data," can be
collected and stored by a website's server. For example, clickstream data can tell the type of
computer and browsing software you use and the address of the website from which you
linked to the Properties. The Properties may collect and use clickstream data for the purposes

throughout the Properties, and how we may tailor our Properties to better meet the needs of
visitors. This information often will be used to improve our Properties and our services.
technology that installs a small amount of information on a user's computer or other device
when they visit a website. Cookies permit a website to, for example, recognize future visits
using that computer or device. The Properties may use other similar technologies (including,
without limitation, tracking pixels, as described further below, and other identifiers) to gather
customize your visit, to enable us to enhance our service, or for other purposes. For example,
information provided through cookies is used to recognize you as a previous user of the
Properties so you do not have to enter your personal information every time and to offer
personalized content. We may also use and share such information to personalize marketing
(for Varsity Chips or for our affiliates, Business Partners, and other third parties, as further
described in this policy), including as described in the section below regarding Interest-Based
Advertising. You may choose to decline cookies by adjusting your browser preferences, but
doing so may affect your use of the Website and your ability to access certain features of the
Properties or engage in transactions through the Properties. If you delete your cookies, change
browsers or change devices, cookies that the Properties may use (or an opt-out cookie) may no
longer work. Cookies and similar technologies also may be used by our affiliates, a tracking
utility company, and other parties to, for example, make it easier for you to navigate our
Properties and other purposes, or to serve advertisements. We do not have access to or
control over these cookies and technologies and we cannot state whether these parties will
Additionally, we may employ, either directly or through trusted third parties, tracking pixels.
Tracking pixels are tiny, transparent graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to
cookies, and are used to provide analytical information concerning the user experience as well
as to support custom marketing activities for users of the Properties. In contrast to cookies,
which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, tracking pixels are embedded invisibly on
web pages. The Properties may use tracking pixels to help us better manage content, such as
by improving the user interface or improving our marketing programs or the marketing of our
affiliates, Business Partners, and other third parties (including for Interest-Based Advertising as
described below). The Properties may use information to create aggregate tracking information
reports regarding user demographics, traffic patterns and purchases. We may also link tracking
information with personal information.
c. Location Information; Push Notifications. The Properties may be collecting your location, geo-
IP, and other similar data. We use this information to help us maintain and enhance the
efficiency and usefulness of the Properties and for other purposes described in this Privacy
Policy (such as marketing). Additionally, we may also receive location data from other third
parties. The Properties may obtain the user's precise location for operational purposes such as
fraud prevention. We may determine your zip code from the location data received from the
mobile device of an App user, and users of the Properties also may elect to provide us with
their zip code directly. We also may enable our App to offer automatic (or "push") notifications.
We will provide push notifications only to those users who permit such notifications. If you
would like to opt out of location based advertising and push notifications, please see the
Choices section below.
d. Cross Device Matching. We may now or in the future have the ability to match your devices
using the data collected, making educated predictions, and, in some cases, using deterministic
data (e.g., unique identifiers) or other content across devices. We may then, subject to the
advertisements to you across your devices unless it is an OptedOut Device (as defined below)
as further described in the Interest-Based Advertising Section below.
e. Device fingerprinting. We or our third-party service providers may analyze and combine sets of
information elements from your device to identify it as a unique device. Information elements
may include IP address, device identifier, browser type, operating system, data regarding
network-connected hardware, login method, and information about your use of the Properties.
To the extent that we or our third-party service providers combine this information with your
personal information, we will treat the combined information as personal information under
constitute personal information under applicable law.
f. How We Use Information. Information collected by cookies and other tracking technologies
system administration purposes, analytics, and to improve the Properties and our marketing
efforts. We may also use the data to build a better picture of the type of offers and products
that you might be interested in, for "Interest-Based Advertising" (described below) and push
notifications. We also may use general location data, preferences, or other information
received from the Properties, including through your mobile device such as through the App, to
send you tailored marketing messages, including making product recommendations.
Additionally, we may use information to engage in interactive, real-time discussions with users,
which we or the users may initiate. We may also anonymize or aggregate any information
collected using cookies and other tracking technologies and may use and share such data for
any lawful purpose.
6. Blockchain Data
If you use Varsity Chips NFT products, some information is publicly available information and may be
seen by other users of the Varsity Chips blockchain. Publicly available information includes your
blockchain address(es), the time and date your transactions are finalized on the Varsity Chips
blockchain, the amounts and currency denominations of the transactions, and the other blockchain
address(es) that are parties to any transactions you have made on the blockchain.
7. Interest-Based Advertising
We may use information we collect (alone or in combination with information provided by third parties
and service providers) to deliver targeted advertising (about Varsity Chips or other third party products
and services) to you when you visit our Properties or other websites. Information about you (such as
email address) as well as cookies and other tracking technologies (described above) may be used in this
process. For example, if you are searching for information on a particular product, we may use that
information to cause an advertisement to appear on other websites you view with information on that
product. We may, now or in the future, have the ability to engage in “cross-device matching” to display
targeted advertisements to you across browsers and devices (as described in Section 5 above).
To further clarify, we partner with third parties that collect information across various channels,
including offline and online, for purposes of delivering more relevant advertising to you or your
business. Our partners may place or recognize a cookie on your computer, device, or directly in our
emails/communications, and we may share personal information with them if you have submitted such
information to us, such as your name, postal address, email address, or device ID. Our partners use this
information to recognize you across different channels and platforms, including but not limited to,
computers, mobile devices, and Smart TVs, over time for advertising, analytics, attribution, and
If you would like to opt-out of these interest-based advertisements or “cross-device matching,” please
see the Opt-Out Process/Options and Additional Terms below in Section 11.
8. Data Retention
We will retain your personal information for as long as your account is active (as determined by us) and
for a reasonable time thereafter, or such other time period as prescribed by law. We also may retain
your personal information for a longer period of time as needed to provide you services or as necessary
to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce our agreements. Even if we
delete some or all of your personal information, we may continue to retain and use aggregate,
anonymous data previously collected and/ or anonymize and aggregate your personal information.
9. Contests and Promotions
If contests or promotions are made available, the applicable contest or promotion rules may include
rules regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information. To the extent that those
10. Third-Party Websites and Social Media Services
a. Third-Party Websites. The Properties may contain links to other websites or Internet resources.
When you click on one of those links, you are contacting another website or Internet resource.
We have no responsibility or liability for, or control over, those other websites or resources or
their collection, use and disclosure of your information. We suggest that you read the privacy
b. Social Media, Widgets and Open Forums. Our Properties may allow you to engage with social
media services, such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram ("Social Networks"), and
widgets such as the "Share this" button, or interactive mini-programs that run on our
Properties or which link from Social Networks to our Properties ("Social Functions"). These
Social Functions may access, collect, and integrate with your Social Network accounts and
information. For example, these Social Functions may collect your IP address, identify which
page you are visiting on our Properties, or set a cookie. Social Functions may also be used to
register you as a Properties user. For example, if you are not currently registered as a Website
user and you use certain Social Functions, you will be asked to enter your Social Network
credentials and then be given the option to register and join the Website. If you choose to use
these Social Functions, you may be sharing certain Social Network profile elements with us,
including your name, birthday (month/day), comments, contacts, email address, photos, or
use. We do not control those Social Networks or your profiles on those services. Nor do we
modify your privacy settings on those services or establish rules about how your personal
information on those services will be used. Social Functions are either hosted by a third party
or hosted directly on our Properties. Your interactions with them are governed by the privacy
policy of the company providing them. Please refer to the privacy settings in your Social
Network account to manage the data that is shared with us through your account. Information
you include and transmit online in a publicly accessible blog, chat room, or Social Network, or
that you share in an open forum such as an in-person panel or survey, may be viewed and used
by others without any restrictions. We do not control such uses of your personal information,
and by using such services you assume the risk and acknowledge that the personal information
provided by you may be viewed and used by us and/or third parties for any number of
11. Your Choices
We strive to offer you with choices about how information is used and shared. There are several ways in
which you may opt out of the various programs and services we provide. Some of the ways in which you
may opt out are described below.
a. Opting Out of Our Services. If you receive a marketing email from us, you may unsubscribe from
future marketing emails in accordance with our standard unsubscribe process. You may also
unsubscribe from SMS messages by communicating with us through SMS. On most devices,
App users may opt out of mobile communications from us via their device settings (mobile
browser cookies require a separate opt-out, as explained below).
b. Interest-Based Advertising Opt-Out and Do Not Track Signals. With respect to "do not track"
(a/k/a “DNT”) signals or similar mechanisms transmitted by web browsers, the Properties do
not respond to or honor such signals or mechanisms. This means that third parties, such as ad
networks, web analytics companies, and social networking platforms (some of whom are
over time and across our Properties and other third-party online properties or services. These
companies may use information about your visits to our Properties and other sites, and general
geographic information derived from your IP address, in order to provide advertisements about
goods and services of interest to you. For more information about third-party advertisers and
how to prevent them from using your information, please visit
http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. This is a site offered by the Network Advertising
Initiative ("NAI") that includes information on how consumers can optout from receiving
interest-based advertising from some or all of NAI's members. You can also visit http://
www.aboutads.info/choices, which is a site offered by the Digital Advertising Alliance ("DAA")
that includes information on how consumers can opt-out from receiving internet-based
advertising from some or all of DAA's participating companies. Opting out of interest-based
advertising does not mean that you will no longer see any advertisements; rather, you will still
see advertisements that are general and not tailored to your specific interests and activities.
Further, cookie-based opt-outs must be performed on each device and browser that you wish
to have opted-out. For example, if you have opted out on your computer browser, that opt-out
will not necessarily be effective on your mobile device. In the event we are performing cross-
device matching (as described above), once you have opted out on one device (“Opted-Out
Device”), we will not use any new data from the Opted-Out Device to identify you on another
device for interest-based advertising purposes and we will not use data from another device for
interest-based advertising purposes on the Opted-Out Device.

services and products intended for purchase by adults (i.e., those age 18 or older). If you make a
purchase on our Properties, you are representing that you are an adult. We will not knowingly collect
any personal information from children under the age of 18 without the consent of that child's parent or
guardian. If you are a child under the age of 18, you are not authorized to use the Properties without
consent from your parent or legal guardian. If we become aware that personal information from a child
under 18 has been collected without such child's parent or guardian's consent, we will use all reasonable
efforts to delete such information from our database. If any parent, guardian or other responsible adult
becomes aware that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 18, please
contact us at [email protected]

Under California Civil Code Section 1798.83 (“Shine the Light”), California residents have the right to
request in writing from businesses with whom they have an established business relationship: (a) a list
of the categories of personal information, as defined under Shine the Light, such as name, email address

d. Rights to Your Information; Right to Know About Personal Information Collected, Disclosed or
As a California consumer, you have the right to request that we disclose certain information to
you about our collection, use, disclosure or sale of your personal information over the past 12
months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see “Exercising Access

collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm
your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights,
below), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information
from our records, unless an exception applies. However, we maybe retain personal information
that has been de-identified or aggregated. Furthermore, we may deny your deletion request if

to respond, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. In order to
protect the security of your personal information, we will not honor a request if we cannot
verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information
relates to you. The method used to verify your identity will depend on the type, sensitivity and
value of the information, including the risk of harm to you posed by any authorized access or
deletion. Generally speaking, verification will be performed by matching the identifying
information provided by you to the personal information that we already have.
Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of your
request (and will not be made more than twice in a 12-month period). If we cannot comply
with a request, in whole or in part, the response we provide will also explain the reasons we

either the consumer who is at least 16 and less than 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian

We strive to provide you with choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around
marketing and advertising:

delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us
continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or
remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your

about your particular situation which makes you want to object to
processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental

processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some
cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds
to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
E. Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables
you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the
following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data's accuracy;
(b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to
erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer
require it as you need it to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims; or
(d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify
whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
F. Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We
will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data
in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that
this right only applies to automated information which you initially
provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to
perform a contract with you.
G. Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to
process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness
of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you
withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products
or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you
withdraw your consent.
