Updated September 16th 2023
Revision: 7

This private notice discloses the privacy practices for Melee. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this website. Melee is owned and operated by Keyrune Inc, a corporation registered and based in Delaware, USA. When using or accessing the Melee website, you are agreeing to be bound to the terms within this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Service. If you do not agree to the terms within this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Service policy, do not access or use the Melee website.

This policy outlines the following:

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

Keyrune Inc is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We only collect or have access to information that is voluntarily given to us via online form submission, email, or other direct contact. We do not sell or rent this information to anyone.

We will not share your information with any third-party outside of the organization, other than as necessary to fulfill duties.

We use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site. Some of our business partners may use cookies on our site (for example, advertisers). However, we have no access to or control over these cookies.

This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.

When a user, such as an organizer or their staff members, submits personal information of their customers or any other user, they must get permission from that customer or user to share that information before they submit it to Melee.

What Information is Stored

Melee uses online submission forms to collect and store your data for use in its operations. Here is a list of information about you that we may store:

Personally Identifiable Information: Other Information Linked to Your Personal Information

By default, your first and last names are not made public after creating your Melee account. However, you have the option to share this information on your public profile in your Melee account settings. Alternatively, your Melee account can be identified by your Melee account username. Accounts created before June 2023 do have their first and last names public on their profile which can be changed in your Melee account settings.

Data Sub-Processors

The Melee platform utilizes the services of certain third-party sub-processors to assist in providing and improving our services. These sub-processors may process personal data on behalf of the Melee platform. We have carefully selected these sub-processors and have implemented appropriate safeguards to ensure the security and protection of your data.

Please note that while we strive to work with reputable sub-processors, their own data processing practices are governed by their respective privacy policies. We recommend reviewing the privacy policies of these sub-processors for more information on how they handle and protect data.

By using the Melee platform, you acknowledge and agree to the engagement of these sub-processors in the processing of your data as outlined in this section.

Data Sharing with Organizers

For tournament operations, some personal data must be shared with organizers operating the tournament. Sensitive information such as emails, age, and location are shared only if users give explicit permission to Melee to share that information during the registration process.

Personal Data Shared with Organizers:

For tournaments where organizers create Melee accounts on behalf of players, it is the responsibility of the organizers to ensure that players are aware of and approve their Melee account creation, including Melee's terms, conditions, and privacy policies.

Data Sharing with Wizards of the Coast LLC and Hasbro, Inc.

If a user plays in a MTG tournament that is explicitly supported by Wizards of the Coast LLC (such as World Championships, Pro Tours, Regional Championships, etc.), that user's information will be shared with Wizards of the Coast LLC in the same manner as it is shared with the organizers of that tournament.

Data Sharing with Ravensburger AG and The Walt Disney Company

Users that sign up for the Lorcana Play program as a retailer or tournament host will have their retailer application information shared with Ravensburger and Disney. If a user plays in a Lorcana tournament, that user's information will be shared with Ravensburger and Disney in the same manner as it is shared with the organizers of that tournament.

Security Procedures

We take appropriate measures to keep your information secure, both online and offline.

Whenever we collect sensitive information, we use encryption and secure methods to protect it. We do not store or handle credit card or other payment data, but third-party payment services may do so at your request.

In addition to online security measures, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform specific tasks (such as billing or customer service) have access to it. The computers and servers where we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Access Management

We have procedures for managing user access to our systems, applications, and data, including password policies, access controls, and authorization processes. We use multi-factor authentication to ensure that only authorized individuals can access our systems and data. We regularly review and update our access management processes and procedures to ensure that they remain effective and compliant with applicable laws and regulations. Databases, key vaults, and other private data sources are only accessible via certain IP addresses.

User Data Encryption


To protect your data while it is being transmitted between your device and our servers, we use SSL/TLS encryption. This means that all data transmitted between your device and our servers is encrypted and cannot be read by unauthorized parties. We also use the secure HTTPS protocol to prevent data from being modified or tampered with during transmission. By using SSL/TLS encryption and HTTPS, we can ensure that your data remains confidential, integral, and authentic during transmission.


All user data is stored within Keyrune’s cloud service. This service uses encryption to protect data at-rest, including backups. The encryption keys are system-managed and the storage encryption is always on and can't be disabled.

Backup and Disaster Recovery

Our database automatically creates server backups and stores them in user-configured locally redundant or geo-redundant storage. These backups include data files and transaction logs and can be used to restore our servers to a point-in-time within our configured backup retention period of seven days. All backups are encrypted.

Updating Information

You can easily update nearly all of your personally identifiable information collected on this site at your leisure. If you find that you cannot update a piece of information, please contact us at

Removing Your Information

You have the right to be forgotten on Melee. If you would like to delete your account, you may do so via your Profile Page. Deleting your account will delete all personally identifiable information from Melee but may not delete all content generated by your use of the site (such as submitted decklists, pairings, and standings).
