At Competitive Gaming Organization ("CGO" here after), accessible from https://thecgomedia.com, one of our main priorities is the privacy of our visitors. This Privacy Policy document contains types of information that is collected and recorded by CGO and how we use it.

If you have additional questions or require more information about our Privacy Policy, do not hesitate to contact us through Discord.

Log Files

CGO follows a standard procedure of using log files. These files log visitors when they visit websites. All hosting companies do this and a part of hosting services' analytics. The information collected by log files include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. These are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. The purpose of the information is for analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users' movement on the website, and gathering demographic information.

Cookies and Web Beacons

Like any other website, CGO uses 'cookies'. These cookies are used to store information including visitors' preferences, and the pages on the website that the visitor accessed or visited. The information is used to optimize the users' experience by customizing our web page content based on visitors' browser type and/or other information.

Membership Fields

CGO offers users who have registered an account the ability to save personal and other information that may or may not be identifying on the CGO website. The majority of this information will be displayed publicly and should not be expected to remain private even if it is not publicly available. By users filling in and submitting this information via the profile page they are acknowledging, understanding, and approving of these terms.

Your IP will be logged as a member on the platform and all associated information gained from the IP will be saved as well. By continuing to use the site with each IP you are consenting to the logging of the IP.

Profile information & user information will be shared with third parties for event integrity purposes (examples are but not limited to preventing cheaters, preventing rule violators, grievers, and/or trolls, from participation on the platform events). Ensure the information you volunteer to CGO or information that can be collected from your browsing profile are acceptable to be shared.

Users of the CGO site may opt out of sharing of information by not creating an account.

Identity Document Verification

In extreme circumstances CGO will ask for documents that verify the specific user's identity. This information will be kept confidential to CGO as long as the specific user in question does not violate any cheating or hacking rules on the CGO platform. In this event, all user information collected will be forwarded to the specific game publisher and to any relevant government authorities.
