The types of information that we collect fall under two general categories: personally identifiable information (PII) and non-personally identifiable information (non-PII). PII consists of any information which can be used to specifically identify you as an individual, whereas non-PII consists of aggregate information or any information that does not reveal your identity. The following sections describe how your PII and non-PII are collected by us, and how we use such information.
Log files information:
Any time you visit the Site, our servers automatically gather information from your browser (such as your IP addresses, browser type, platform type, date/time stamp). This information may be used to analyze trends, prevent fraud and track visitor movement in the aggregate. We do not share this information externally.
We use "cookies" to keep track of some types of information while you are visiting the Site or using the Service. Cookies are very small files placed on your computer, and they allow us to count the number of visitors to our website and distinguish repeat visitors from new visitors. They also allow us to save user preferences and track user trends.
Google analytics information:
Web beacons information:
They are small transparent graphic images that are often used in conjunction with cookies in order to further personalize our website for our users and to collect a limited set of information about our visitors. We may also use web beacons in email communications in order to understand the behavior of our customers. We do not link the web beacons to any PII.
Information about you:
When you register for the Service, we collect a variety of information about you to complete your online profile. We use that information for some features of the Service, for example to calculate the rankings of the users and teams. Except as otherwise stated in this privacy statement, we do not disclose your PII to other users of the Service. If you choose to connect your Sportsnetics account with Facebook or any other service, we will receive and retain basic account registration data you provide to that service, such as name, email address, user ID and profile page URL.
We require an email address from you when you register for the Service. We use your email for both transactional (e.g., activity updates such as notices that another user is now following you on the Service) and promotional (e.g., newsletters, new product offerings, event notifications, special third-party offers) purposes. We reserve the right to send you certain communications, such as service announcements and administrative messages, without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them.
Demographic data information:
Demographic data is also collected at the Site. We use this data to tailor our visitors' experience, showing them content that we think they might be interested in, and displaying the content according to their preferences. Some of this information may be shared with advertisers on a non-personally identifiable basis.
We make discussion areas of the Site available to our users and visitors. Any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose any PII.
We will not sell or rent your Personal Information to anyone.
We will only disclose your Personal Information to third parties:
a. Where you have specifically given us your consent to disclose your Personal Information for a designated purpose;
b. As may be set out in the Terms and Conditions applicable Sportsnetics;
c. As required by law, including by an order of any court, institution or body with jurisdiction or authority to compel the production of information, or in order to protect or defend a legal interest; or
We have implemented reasonable measures to help protect your User Information from loss, misuse, or unauthorized access or disclosure. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your User Information, we cannot guarantee its security. You are responsible to protect your password and account information at all times.
The Service may contain links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of any such other website and urge you to review such practices prior to submitting any information to such websites.
You must be at least 13 years or older to register to use the Service. Children between the age of 13 and 18 must have parental consent to register. Sportsnetics does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register. No one under age 13 is allowed to provide any personal information to or on the Service. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may use the following options for removing your information from our email database if you wish to opt out of receiving promotional emails and newsletters.
- Click on the "Account Settings" link from the site home page, and un-check the undesired promotions.
You may change your email address, password and other information from the "Account" page accessible via a link from the site home page. To the extent you choose to include PII or other information in your profile, the Service allows you to update or remove that information by editing or deleting the content.
To terminate an account, send an email to email@example.com with the title "Terminate Account". Such deletion may not be immediate, and residual copies of your profile information or posts may remain on backup media for up to ninety (90) days.
If you are located outside of the United States, please note that this site is hosted on our computer servers in the United States. Therefore, your information may be processed and stored in the United States. As a result, the United States federal and state governments, courts, or law enforcement or regulatory agencies may be able to obtain disclosure of your information through laws applicable in the United States. Your use of this site or the Service or your submission of any Personal Information to us will constitute your consent to the transfer of your Personal Information outside of your home country, including the United States, which may provide for different data protection rules than in your country.
We may use third-party advertising agencies or other service providers to serve ads on the Site on behalf of Sportsnetics or third-party advertisers (e.g., retailers of goods or services). These companies may employ cookies and web beacons to measure advertising effectiveness. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and web beacons is completely anonymous. We will only share your information with third parties in the ways defined in this privacy statement.
By creating an account, you are authorizing Sportsnetics to share your information publicly (this includes your full name, bio, preferences, photos, all the forum posts, comments, all the stats, charts, tables you create and other information) publicly available. Your email address will remain private. Also, there may be areas of the Services (e.g., forums, profile pages, stats created) in which you are able to post information that will be available to all other users of the Service. By choosing to use these areas, you understand and agree that anyone may access, use, and disclose any information that you post to those areas.
Your continued use of any portion of the Service following posting of the updated privacy statement will constitute your acceptance of the changes.
