2. Content Disclaimer
The views expressed in the articles and comments on Soccerlens are held by their writers and are not owned or expressed by Soccerlens itself.
Soccerlens may, from time to time, present articles / content that would be considered offensive to some. It is difficult in a sports site to draw a line between opinion and outright libel – as such, Soccerlens also reserves the sole right to determine what is and what is not acceptable as content on the site.
If you provide your email address on Soccerlens (in a comment or through registering on Soccerlens), note that we may (and probably will) send you email.
This includes (but is not limited to) on updates related to Soccerlens, requests for information, discussions on articles you’ve written / comments you’ve made and opportunities for improved partnerships with Soccerlens.
Currently, Soccerlens uses Google Adsense as advertising. Please bear in mind that we are not responsible for the content of the sites you will arrive at after clicking on those links – being ‘automated’, it is not possible to manually screen every site whose link appears in AdSense ads.
5. Personal Information
There are three ways your personal information may be collected on Soccerlens – through traffic logs and information you provide yourself.
Traffic tracking usually involves recording a user’s IP address (which can be used to determine geographical location), browser type, OS type and screen resolution, as well as which pages you visit / which links you click.
This information is usually collected to analyse content usage patterns on Soccerlens – how much traffic the site gets, which pages get the most traffic, where are visitors coming from, which is the most popular browser / screen resolution, whether advertising is attracting attention or not and other similar outcomes.
This information cannot be directly used to identify you unless you provide personal information (as shown in the next section).

In addition, you may choose to provide additional information when you post a comment or write on the site.
One, we do not intend to share your personal information with anyone, under any pretext or rationale. Two, information you provide may be used to contact you (see next section on Communication). Third, we may choose to censor any additional information that you provide if we feel it will be a problem.
Ultimately, you are responsible for any extra information that you provide on the site. From our end, we will do everything we can do to protect your privacy.
The above points are binding on all site users, one-time or regular.
