International Transfers of Personal Information
Probatter may process your personal data among affiliates of ProBatter Sports, LLC outside your local jurisdiction. Many of Probatter’s third-party processors also are based in different jurisdictions.
Historically, Probatter has complied with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the US Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information (as defined in these Frameworks) transferred from countries in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), United Kingdom (”UK”), and Switzerland, as applicable, to the United States. On July 16, 2020, however, the Court of Justice of the European Union issued a judgment declaring as “invalid” the European Commission’s Decision (EU) 2016/1250 of 12 July 2016 on the adequacy of the protection provided by the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield. As a result of that decision, the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework is no longer a valid mechanism to comply with EU data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union to the United States. That decision does not relieve participants in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield of their obligations under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework.
Access and Choice
EEA, UK, and Swiss individuals have the right to obtain our confirmation of whether we maintain personal information relating to them. As an individual from the EEA, UK, or Switzerland, you may also request to correct, amend, or delete the personal information we hold about you. An individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate personal information, should direct their query as provided in the Contact Us section.
You can manage your profile and settings within our Website.
European Union, UK, and Swiss individuals with privacy inquiries or complaints should please contact us first as described in the Contact Us section.
Additional Information for Individuals in California, Virginia, Colorado, and Connecticut
This section provides notice and specific information to consumers in California, Virginia, Colorado, and Connecticut, including information required by the California Consumer Privacy Act, as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act (collectively “CCPA”), the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act, the Colorado Consumer Privacy Act (effective July 1, 2023), and the Connecticut Data Privacy Act (effective July 1, 2023). Please note that the notice, information, and rights for residents in Colorado and Connecticut are only effective July 1, 2023.
Consequently, we do not knowingly disclose information regarding individuals under 18 years of age to third parties in exchange for consideration. We do not use or disclose sensitive personal information for purposes other than those set forth in the CCPA.

Residents of Virginia, Colorado, and Connecticut have the right to confirm whether Probatter is processing their personal information. Please submit these requests for information, as well as requests to access, correct, or delete your information, through your privacy settings, or by emailing us at email@example.com. Residents of Virginia, Colorado, and Connecticut may appeal Probatter’s decision regarding their request by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Consistent with applicable privacy laws, except to the extent reasonably related to the value of your personal information, we will not treat you differently for exercising your rights under these laws.
Your authorized agent may exercise your data protection rights by emailing us at email@example.com. We may still require you to directly verify your identity and confirm that you have provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request.
