The analytics collected by our installed services, such as Woocommerce, Mailchimp, WordPress and the like collect analytics on traffic and volume. They use this to determine how servers using their software are preforming and what they can do to address an known bugs.
Our website uses the Cloudflare platform to give us detailed hour by hour analytics on web traffic, threat allocations, and requests. We use AWstats as well to tell us where the traffic may have originated from, whether the traffic is a bot or a human and what pages these requests tend to go to. AWStats also provides us with the time spent at each request, for us to get a better understanding at what our customers are most interested in.
We collect various data points when players record each shot. Data points such as, missed shot, made shot, defensive shot, type of shot, shot probability, break & run, etc., are collected within the app. If the user decides to upload the data to our server, we will run statistical analysis on the various data components for our users to have a tool accessible to them that provides data insights into their game.
The various tools that we have in place on our website comes from the WordPress suite. As such, wordpress plug-in and component authors request that certain data is shared for them to gain an understanding of the use of their components. NO personal data, such as Name, Address, Location, Financial information, is shared with these additional associates. Only anonymous website tracking data is what they obtain.
NO Data from the app is shared unless the user decides, upon his/her own free will, that they would like to share their match data with us. A notification dialog will appear letting the user confirm they understand they are uploading their personal game data to our servers.
The only data we share about a user’s match data, is the data we run statistical analysis on. The player’s name, GameID, and basic and advanced metrics about their game. We make this data available to the public through posts and our blog. We intend to share data about any user’s uploaded stats, through our means to ensure that the Cue Sports see the various degrees to which we can analyze the game of pool.

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Data collected with the app is only sent to our private servers hosted here in Germany. This data does not get sent to any third-parties and will never be in the hands of other individuals that are not representatives of Pool Stats L.L.C.
Each app contains it’s own database. When a user uploads their match data to our servers, it creates a database specific for that app for use in our membership programs. The app’s database is also appended to a catch-all database that includes all match history from every app. This again is utilized through our membership programs.
Any sensitive data is encrypted used AES-256 encryption and stored locally on our servers. We take a backup of all the databases every 8 hours, encrypt it (AES-256), and store it in the cloud in case of emergency backup precautions. We use a redundant back-up as well every 8 hours, storing it on another cloud platform, in case something went awry with the first data backup.
This ensures that all important and sensitive data is not mined by third-party companies, since it is encrypted. We use state-of-the-art software to ensure our servers are not breached, and have continuous network monitoring for any possible threats.
We use the YouTube API services to provide our users with video content about pool matches and games for various reasons. One fundamental reason is our crowdsourcing program.

This allows users to earn cash when they enter our campaign by recording matches found at our private YouTube channel, with our software As such the user is directed to the YouTube ToS below:
