Hey Summoners,

We wanted to give you an early heads-up that we’ll be making a few changes to those massive documents of legal jibber-jabber that you agree to when you play League of Legends – the Privacy Policy, Terms of Use (TOU) and End User License Agreement (EULA). The changes will be taking effect in the next patch (scheduled for October 9th), and today we’ll outline some of the key changes you can expect to see. It’s not a lot, but if you’re interested, read on (and of course, be sure to familiarize yourself with all the changes when the complete docs are posted):

Privacy Policy

  • We’re now TRUSTe certified, which is the highest standard of privacy protection out there. You’ll see their seal on our website in the near future. You can read all about what that means at TRUSTe’s website.
  • We want to understand where new League of Legends players are coming from, so we’re gonna make use of more 3rd party cookies as well as tracking pixels, and the updated policy reflects this.
  • Riot collects data/information associated with making a payment (rather than simply passing it along to third parties). We don’t do anything with that info except charge your card when you purchase RP (thanks!). We’ve added more clear language regarding refer-a-friend, newsletters, how to change your account info, and other services Riot provides.

TOU and EULA

  • We’re the only ones who have access to personally identifiable information you provide directly to Riot.
  • Like in the privacy policy update, we collect and store payment data.
  • In the event of a dispute, you and Riot agree to binding, individual arbitration of your claims (except for in certain, limited circumstances).

I’ll check out the comments section and try to answer any burning questions.

Sounds good to me. I like that you guys have dumbed down all the legal jargon for us who aren't in law school.

I enjoy how the Legal Counsel has Brolaf as an Icon.

Points, good sir.

I also enjoy how you call it jibber jabber, because you know less than .01% of the community reads that drab.

Can you elaborate on the usage of the tracking pixels/cookies, particularly, will the information obtained by these be used for internal usage or will the information be provided to advertisement services?

Will the use of privacy add-ons such as Ghostery, NoScript, Adblock, etc, which mitigate or prevent tracking methods hinder the use of the website?
