If you enter a tournament, contest or other promotion, we use your personal contact information to administer the tournament, contest or promotion, including contacting, announcing and promoting prizewinners. In addition, sometimes our tournament or contest rules provide that we may contact contest entrants with promotions and product information. Those rules will also include a way for you to indicate to us that you do not want to be contacted for this purpose. Some tournaments and contests may also involve co-sponsors, who have their own privacy practices. In these cases, the rules and/or entry forms will indicate that your personal information is being shared with these cosponsors and will provide you with the ability to opt-out from receiving promotions and product
information from them.
We collect demographic information, as well as attendance and participation history at EGL shows and tournaments, contests and other promotions, in order to gain a better understanding of your interests so that we may develop better shows and tournaments.
We may also use demographic, personal contact and history information to contact you about future EGL shows and tournaments. In addition, we may use this information to send you offers or information from us, our affiliates and from selected exhibitors, sponsors or advertisers (“Marketing
Offers”). If you do not wish to receive Marketing Offers, you may opt-out at any time by following the opt-out procedure below.
We may tape or monitor your telephone calls with our customer service representatives for quality assurance purposes.
We collect your credit card information if you purchase a pass to attend an EGL show and/or participate in an EGL tournament. This credit card information is used for the purpose of fulfilling your request.
If you choose to opt-out of any use of your personal information in accordance with our opt-out policy, we will keep your contact information on a list so that your request can be honoured. If you provide a complaint to any of our departments, we will collect your contact information and the
nature of your complaint, for the purpose of investigating your concerns and responding to you.
We use IP (internet protocol) addresses, to gather demographic and statistical information about our users, for systems administration and to diagnose problems with our servers, and to administer our website. We may also use IP addresses to display or allow our third party advertising providers to display more targeted advertising and content.
We may, from time to time, track and analyze anonymous usage and browsing patterns of visitors to our website to provide our advertisers with more targeted advertising opportunities and to help users see advertising that is most likely to interest them.

and generally managing and administering our business; and meeting all relevant Canadian and international regulatory, legal, insurance, audit, security and processing requirements.
Occasionally, we may ask our customers to complete market research surveys. If you choose to participate in these surveys and provide your personal information for that purpose, your information will be aggregated as part of the survey results and shared with our advertisers, sponsors and
affiliates in a manner that does not identify you.
Other than as permitted or required by law, if we wish to collect, use or disclose your personal information for purposes that are not contemplated in this Privacy Code, we will identify those purposes at the time of collection.
