The definitions of the terms used in the Service Terms are also used correspondingly in this Privacy Policy.

In this Privacy Policy the term “Personal Data” means any information relating to or identifiable to a private individual person and any information on his/her characteristics or personal circumstances. This Privacy Policy applies to any processing of Personal Data in connection with the Service, including collecting, using, transferring and deleting Personal Data.

This Privacy Policy describes how PSJ collects, uses and shares your information. Our Service enables you to create a personal profile, provide information about yourself as a person and your achievements as an athlete/coach/or sports professional, sharing your profile information and other information with other users of the Service, applying for a job and other similar activities. By using the Service you agree to the processing of your Personal Data according the provisions of this Privacy Policy.

Since our Service is about connecting athletes, sports professionals, sports professional organizations, teams, companies, or other legal entities, you can additionally submit more information about you to the Service. This gives you an opportunity to improve your profile, making it more distinct and customized, and gives a better description of you as an athlete or a sports professional. This information may consist of e.g. your picture, your location, your website, information about your height and weight and information about your skills, professional experience and background as an athlete or sports professional. Your profile page may be visible to other users of the Service. You may, however, control the privacy of some of your profile information through not submitting some of the above mentioned information.
