Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting SportSesh (“SportSesh,” “we,” “us” or “our”). SportSesh is a platform for sports fans to connect and watch sporting events together.

Our Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, share and protect information in relation to our web site and any software provided on or in connection with SportSesh services (collectively, the “Service”), and your choices about the collection and use of your information.

By using our Service you understand and agree that we are providing a platform for you to optionally choose to post content, including photos, biographies, favourites and other materials to the Service and to share publicly. This means that other users of the Service may search for, see, use, or share any certain information you make publicly available through the Service, consistent with the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service.

The Service connects people who want to watch sporting events together (“Fans”) with the venues that are showing those events (“Venues”). Our Service allows Venues to pay for the right to host Fans. Unless specifically provided therein, all the provisions of our Privacy Policy apply to all Fans, Venues, visitors, users, and others who access the Service.
