Major League Gaming Cookie Policy

Major League Gaming (“MLG”) uses "Cookies" to tailor content and marketing, and to improve and adjust user experiences. To find out more about "Cookies", and the options available to manage them, please see below. By using this MLG online property, you consent to our use of "Cookies".

Welcome to MLG's Cookie Policy. This Cookie Policy was last updated on November 9, 2018.

Cookies & Similar Technologies

MLG uses cookies and/or similar technologies on the Properties (collectively referred to as "Cookies"). A "cookie" is a small bit of record-keeping information that many websites and other online products and services often store on a user's computer or device in order to identify it and associate activity with it. Cookies make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier by letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, and generally improving your experience of a website. For example, we use Cookies when you login to your MLG account to keep you logged in so that every time you move to a new page on our website you do not have to reenter your login details.

For more information about our use of technologies that are similar to cookies, and your opt-out choices, please see the Similar Technologies section under Types of Cookies below

This Cookie Policy explains how MLG uses Cookies. MLG may collect both personal and non-personal information from you when you use MLG websites, products and services (“Properties”). For more information on how MLG collects, stores, uses and may transfer or disclose your information, please see our Privacy Policy .

When visiting the Properties you may have options to enable or disallow Cookies. We use Cookies to optimize your visit, make your browsing and/or user experience as effective as possible, and let you know about offers and features that we think will interest you. This means that if you disallow Cookies, your use of the Properties may be impaired.

Depending on the Property you are using, and the country you are based in, Cookies may be set on your computer or device by either:

  • MLG - to recognize and associate activity with your computer or device when it visits a Property. MLG Cookies cannot be used to recognize or associate activity with your computer or device when it visits other, third party websites or online properties.
  • Third Parties - to enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through our Properties or other online properties (e.g. advertising and analytics). The third parties that set these Cookies may be able to recognize your computer or device both when it visits the Properties or other online properties that use the third party's features and functionality.

These Cookies will generally be either:

  • Session Cookies: These Cookies are only stored temporarily on your device during one browsing session or use of a Property and are then deleted from your device when the Property is closed; or
  • Persistent Cookies: These cookies are saved on your device for a fixed period of time, when we need to know who you are for more than one use of a Property. For example, we use this type of cookie to store your preferences for your next visit to our Properties.

Types of Cookies

There are four categories of Cookies (necessary, performance, functionality and advertising), as well as technologies that are similar to cookies, that may be served through our Properties. Cookies may also be set by third parties, including by social networking sites.  To see a list of the specific Cookies that our Properties may contain, please see the Cookie List at the bottom of this Cookie Policy.

To learn more about your opt-out choices for cookies, please see the Managing Cookies and Do Not Track Options section below. To learn more about your opt-out choices for technologies that are similar to cookies, please see the Similar Technologies section below.

  • Necessary Cookies

These Cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around websites or online properties and use their features, such as accessing secure areas of a website. Without these Cookies, MLG cannot provide services you have asked for, like secure login areas.

  • Performance (or Analytics) Cookies

These Cookies collect information about how visitors use a website or online property, for instance, which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These Cookies don't collect information about the actual identity (e.g., name) of a visitor. All information these Cookies collect is aggregated. They are only used to improve how a website or other online property works. We generally contract with third parties (such as Google Analytics), to provide these services on our behalf.

  • Functionality Cookies

These Cookies allow the website or online property to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personalized features. These Cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made related to accessibility (e.g. text size, fonts) and customization. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video. The information these Cookies collect may be anonymized and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

  • Advertising Cookies

These Cookies are used to deliver advertisements that are more relevant to you and your interests. They also help limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organizations or advertisers.

MLG may partner with third party online advertising and analytics companies to tailor and deliver advertisements, products, services, and promotions on MLG Properties, as well as other online properties which we do not control. To help select the ads of greatest interest to you, these companies may use Cookies to collect and track information such as demographic data (e.g., gender, occupation, etc.), aggregated information, search keywords, geo-location, and device-related data (for example, browser type, language, IP address, Advertising ID, time/date) to select advertisements that are more relevant to your interests and to better personalize the experience for you. In some instances, third-parties may also use Cookies to collect anonymized or device-related information about your visits to MLG Properties in order to monitor the effectiveness of the ads (e.g., by using analytics Cookies) and to provide third party advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you.

MLG may use, combine and share anonymized or aggregated information obtained from Cookies with third parties such as vendors or advertising partners. For example, we may use information such as interests or gaming preferences to group you with other people with similar interests or preferences and place you into a market segment. We may then display advertisements which we believe people in your market segment will find relevant. We may also share personal and non-personal information obtained from Cookies with third parties such as vendors or advertising networks in order to permit them to provide services on our behalf or to partner with us in selecting and serving advertisements for us or our advertising partners.

  • Similar Technologies

Adobe Flash Player is an application that allows sites to deploy dynamic web content. For example, we may use Flash Cookies to deliver video content to you on our Properties. Adobe Flash and similar applications use technology to remember settings, preferences, and usage in ways that are similar to browser cookies, but are managed through a different interface than your web browser. You can access your Flash management tools from http://www.adobe.com/  directly to manage your Cookie settings.

From time to time, we may use web beacons (or clear GIFs) on our websites or other online properties or include them in the email messages we send you. Web beacons (also known as "web bugs," "pixel tags," or "pixels") are small strings of code that provide a method of delivering a graphic image on a web page or in an email message for the purpose of transferring data. We use web beacons for many purposes, including site traffic reporting, unique visitor counts, advertising, email auditing and reporting, and personalization. For example, we may use these in emails to understand and analyze whether the email was opened or any links were clicked, in order to improve our future communications with you and other users. As a web beacon forms part of a webpage or email it does not have the same opt out options as other Cookies. Generally, you can render them ineffective by opting out of any cookies they set, by turning off images in your email service, or by viewing your emails as “text” rather than “HTML.” For more information on how to opt out of Cookies see the Managing Cookies and Do Not Track section below, and for more information on how to turn off images in your emails or to view them as text see the “Help” section of your email service provider.

  • Cookies Placed by Social Network Sites

If you have signed in to a social networking site, such as Facebook, it may have set a cookie on your device which recognizes you when you view content on our websites and other online properties. These Cookies allow you to share content across social media via the use of sharing settings. See your social networking site's terms of use and privacy policy for details. For additional details, please see the Social Media references in the Information We Collect and How We Use It section in our Privacy Policy.

Do Not Track

California Business and Professions Code Section 22575(b) (as amended effective January 1, 2014) permits our customers who are California residents to be informed as to how MLG responds to Web browser "Do Not Track" settings. As Do Not Track is a standard that is currently being developed, MLG does not take actions to respond to Do Not Track settings, and instead we adhere to the standards set out in our Privacy Policy.

Managing Cookies and Do Not Track Options 

You can review your options to manage Cookies by:

Most mobile device developers will tell you how you can manage the settings on your mobile device to opt out of and/or delete Cookies from your mobile device, or to limit the use of and/or opt out of targeted advertising; or
  • visiting http://networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp and/or http://youronlinechoices.com, or if you are in the EU http://www.youronlinechoices.eu/, for choices to opt out of advertising.

We may embed photos and/or video content on our Properties from third party sources such as YouTube, and these sites may set their own Cookies. Similarly, our Properties may have buttons that enable you to share content on Social Media or other sites, and these services may set a Cookie on your device. This Cookie Policy does not apply to Cookies set by such features, and MLG does not control these Cookies set by third parties. We encourage you to review the third party privacy policy or cookie policy for more information about these Cookies and how to manage them.

Permission to Use Cookies 

By using the Properties you agree, and we will assume you consent, to receive Cookies unless you manage your cookie choices by one of the means set out above.

Please also note that the use of information obtained by third party providers listed in the Cookies List below through cookies placed by them is also subject to their own privacy policies.  We encourage you to review the privacy policies of these third party providers, as their privacy practices may vary from ours. Information collected by Cookies may be associated with your registration account or user profile.
