Important changes to the Privacy Policy

Hey summoners,

Brolaf here. Let¢s get the legal mumbo-jumbo out of the way first: We¢ll be updating the Privacy Policy you agree to when you play League of Legends in the next patch to accommodate some changes to how we plan on handling player data in the game. We take player privacy very seriously at Riot, so I want to explain the change thoroughly so you understand why we¢re making this change, and how it ultimately benefits players.

This is the section that will be added to the policy:

"In the event that you choose to create an Account and play the Game, we also collect certain information regarding your in-Game performance and/or interactions with other users (e.g., wins / losses, recent champions played, average number of kills / deaths etc.). These statistics are associated with your in-Game Summoner name and are publicly accessible by members of the Riot Games community. In addition, we may share your in-Game statistics with third parties in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in this Policy. To be clear, no personal information about you, such as your email address, username, IP address, or other sensitive information, will be shared as a part of this process."

So why the change? In short, I¢m happy to confirm that for the first time, Riot Games will be providing 3rd party developers in the community a stand-alone API for accessing in-game League of Legends data. This has been one of the most popular community requests we¢ve heard over the years, and we¢re grateful for the patience you all have shown as we figure out the best way to accommodate this.

Why give people this data? Because people make awesome stuff with game data like stats sites, which tons of players know and love. We want to see more cool things like that come out of the community.

We¢re still in development on this API, and you¢ll be hearing more about it in the coming months (how it will work, who can access it, etc). But in preparation for this, we wanted to get this Privacy Policy change out of the way, which is what I just did .

Regards,

-Brolaf
