Use of Message Tracker, our Gmail Extension


If you choose to integrate your Gmail or any other G Suite application with our Website by installing our ‘Gmail extension’, you may use the extension and allow ConnectSports access to your Google user data.

- What information does ConnectSports collect?

By using the ‘Gmail extension’ with your Website profile, you will grant the ConnectSports access to information associated with your account, including contacts, emails, calendar, subject lines, and URLs of tracked links from your email, if you use the email tracking functionality within the Message Tracker. The extension can read and change your data on our Website and within Gmail on your Chrome browser where the extension is installed.

ConnectSports will scan the content of your emails to identify which emails you have elected to track in order to provide you with the notifications feature. In doing so, the ‘Gmail extension’ logs all emails from Gmail.

ConnectSports will store replies, outgoing mail, email headers, subject line, aliases, time sent, and Email bodies. Your email may contain sensitive information, such as names of your contacts, your private communications, or financial or medical information. You understand that the correspondences you track will be visible to other coaches if you join the Website through a team or have an active team association on your Website profile.

- How do we use your data?

When creating an account, you agree to our Terms of Use which allows us to process your data to give you access to ConnectSports. This way, you can have an account on our Website, organize your profile and message members with your information, etc.

Notwithstanding anything else in the ConnectSports privacy policy, if you provide us with access to your Gmail data using the ‘Gmail extension’, our use of that data will be subject to these additional restrictions:
- We will only use access to read, write, modify or control Gmail message bodies (including attachments), metadata, headers, and settings to provide Website members the ability to track email opens and link clicks, keep your Website profiles' activity feed and messages tab organized, and send emails from your Gmail to enhance the email experience for productivity purposes.
- We will not transfer this Gmail data to others unless doing so is necessary to provide and improve these features, comply with applicable law, or as part of a merger, acquisition, or sale of assets.
- ConnectSports will not use this Gmail data for serving advertisements.
- ConnectSports will not allow humans to read this data unless we have your affirmative agreement for specific messages, doing so is necessary for security purposes such as investigating abuse, to comply with applicable law.

- What personal information can I access?

Because the personal information you share with us via the Google OAuth authentication process originates in your Gmail account, if you want to modify that personal information you may do so through your Gmail account. Alternatively, you can email support@connectsports.co for access to, or to update or delete, your personal information that ConnectSports has collected.
