Our Privacy Policy explains:

Information we collect:

We collect information to provide better services to all of our users - from figuring out basic stuff like which language you speak, to more complex things like which ads you will find most useful or the people who matter most to you online.

We collect information in two ways:

Information you give us:

This is information you typically fill out when you register or update like email address, credit card etc.

Information we get from your use of our services:

We may collect information about the service that you use and how you use them, like when you visit a website, what you view etc. This may include device information (device specific information like hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers and mobile network information). When you visit our website, we collect log information that is stored on our services which includes your IP address, location, device information, application identifiers, cookies etc.

How we use the information we collect

We use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones and to protect BrainyChess and its users. We may keep record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements. We use information to improve your user experience. Your personal information may live in a server outside of the country you live in.

Information you share

BrainyChess allows you to share information with others. Remember that when you share information publicly, it may be indexable by search engines.

Accessing and updating your information

Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you access to your personal information. We allow you to update the information quickly or delete it. We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitve, require disproportionate technical effort, risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical.

Information we share

With your consent

We will share information with companies, partners when we have your consent to do so. We require opt-in consent for sharing any sensitive personal information.

For external processing

We provide personal information to our affiliates or other trusted businesses or persons to process it for us, based on our instructions and in compliance with our Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures.

For legal reasons

We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of BrainyChess if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations.
detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of BrainyChess, our users or the public as required or permitted by law.
We may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners – like publishers, advertisers or connected sites. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our services.


Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will not reduce your rights under this Privacy Policy without your explicit consent. We will post any privacy policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice (including, for certain services, email notification of privacy policy changes). We will also keep prior versions of this Privacy Policy in an archive for your review.
