What data do we collect?
HEMA Ratings collects the following data:
- Personal identification information (name, nationality, club affiliation). We formerly collected gender information, but this is currently only inferrable through participation in gendered tournaments.
- Event participation history, limited to people’s performance at the tournaments in those events
How do we collect your data?
We collect data and process data when you attend a HEMA event and participate in at least one tournament that gets submitted to us by the event organizer or someone else affiliated with or with an interest in the event.
This data may be collected in multiple ways:
- Submitted directly from tournament management software used to administer the event
- Transcribed from paperwork filed at the event
- Transcribed from open sources such as YouTube videos of the event, results posted online, etc.
How will we use your data?
HEMA Ratings collects your data so that we can:
- Provide an historical overview of competitive HEMA
- Rate individual fighters’ performance and track it over time
- Report on the above
- Do statistical research and analysis on HEMA, the growth of HEMA and other similar subjects
- Help tournament organizers with registration and pool seeding
In order to help individuals and organizations doing research on HEMA, HEMA Ratings may upon request provide data sets that are of use to these organizations and individuals. To the extent it’s possible these data sets will be anonymized or pre-aggregated so that no individuals can be explicitly identified in the data set.
In order to further the goal of helping tournament organizers with registration and pool seeding, HEMA Ratings may share data with tournament organizers and tournament software providers. The sharing and use of this data will be regulated through an end-user license agreement (EULA) with each third-party, limiting what data the third-party may use, what the data may be used for and for how long the data can be stored.
How do we store your data?
The main HEMA Ratings site and the related data is stored in Microsoft Azure’s North Europe region. Point-in-time backups dating back 1 month are also stored in the same region.
Submitted event results are stored in the HEMA Ratings Dropbox account. (Dropbox data storage statement)
Emails and other communications are stored through Freshdesk. (Freshdesk data storage and security statement)
