Privacy Policy

The privacy and security of our registrants is very important to us. This Privacy Policy describes how we collect, protect and use personally identifiable information (“PII”) we receive from Site visitors and anyone else who comes along.

This Privacy Policy is an integral part of our Terms of Service, so please be sure to review those as well, as capitalized terms in this Privacy Policy have the same meaning as they do in the Terms of Service. And, as with the Terms of Service, we may change the terms of this Privacy Policy at any time and without notice to you.

Also, by accessing or using the Site, you are accepting and agreeing to the practices described in this Privacy Policy and any future updates to the policy. As you are probably aware, the Site may contain links to other websites over which we have no control. We are not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of other websites to which you choose to link from our Site. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of those other websites so you can understand how they collect, use, and share your information.

Some of the Site pages may be provided for informational purposes and you may be able to use the Site without telling us who you are or providing us with any PII. There are times, however, when in connection with your use of this Site we will need information about you.

  1. What Information We Collect
    Registrant Information
    To use the software and services and participate in any of the activities offered on the Site, you will need to register and create a profile that will be stored on our servers so that you can access the Site again without having to reenter certain information. To register you will need to provide PII such as name, address, email address, other contact information and specific criteria (e.g., age or gender) that are established for each program and clearly stated on the Site. We may change the types of information that are required and any such changes will be clearly indicated on the page where you are required to register. You will also be asked to provide payment information such as credit card numbers. You will need to select a unique user name and password to verify your identity for future access. Any time the Site is up, you will be able to access and edit personal information that you have provided. If there are specific pages on which we collect more or different kinds of information, we will inform you and give you an opportunity to choose whether you want to take advantage of those offerings.

    Registering Children
    We understand that some activities offered on the Site are for minors under the age of 18, and children under the age of 13. We understand that you may need to submit sensitive information about the age, grade, height, weight or allergies or with whom they would want to be placed on a team with. No one under the age of 18 may register on the Site. If a registrant in an activity offered on the Site is a minor, the minor’s parent or guardian must register and submit all information on the minor registrant’s behalf. We are committed to the privacy of children and adhere to the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), Basically what that means is that we won’t let you register if you are under 18. We will not knowingly collect any PII from minors and, if we find out that a minor has registered, we will terminate that person’s profile, username and password.

  2. How We Use Your Information
    Our primary goal in collecting PII is to provide you with a fun and relevant experience on the Site. For example, we may use PII to determine if you qualify to register for an activity, to personalize your account, to customize our services and to allow our customer service representatives to contact you. We will not share PII with any outside parties except as set forth in this Privacy Policy. Please particularly review “Disclosing PII”] below for details on how and why we may share PII

  3. Disclosure of PII
    Some PII is disclosed to other users of the Site under certain circumstances. An example is a roster for a team that is disclosed to all team members, including volunteers, on the Site if the login to their accounts and via an email sent out to all team members. We will also disclose personal information about an individual user if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to comply with an applicable law or valid legal process. We may collect and then disclose non-personally-identifiable information on an aggregated basis to third parties. This means that (a) we won’t include things like names and full addresses, but may include things like zip codes and gender of user and (b) the information from many participants is grouped together in a way that does not disclose the information of any particular participant. These aggregate data collections are usually used for marketing and business intelligence purposes. In addition to the disclosures described above, PII may be provided occasionally to outside auditors, consultants, and others we hire for routine website operations, solely to the extent necessary to help us manage email communications with our members, or for other standard business activities. We ask all recipients to agree to protect the confidentiality, security, and integrity of the information. Also, we may disclose and transfer your personal information to a third party who acquires all or a substantial portion of our business, whether by merger, consolidation or purchase of all or a substantial portion of our assets. In addition, if we become the subject of a bankruptcy proceeding, whether voluntary or involuntary, we or our trustee in bankruptcy may sell, license or otherwise dispose of such information in a transaction approved by the bankruptcy court. We will notify you of a sale of all or a substantial portion of our business to a third party via email or through a prominent notice posted on the Site.

  4. Linked Websites
    The Site may contain links to partners, advertisers and third party Internet sites and services that may collect data in connection with registrations, promotions, e-commerce, etc. These websites have their own policies regarding privacy and content that are not under our control.

  5. Security
    We use a variety of security measures to help maintain the safety of your information. All PII and credit card information we collect is stored in encrypted form in a secure database which is protected by a firewall and hosted in a high security operating environment that is monitored 7 x 24 and not accessible by the public. We use secure socket layers (SSL) encryption for all credit card transactions that we process and whenever we transfer registration data. However, we cannot guarantee that those measures will be effective or that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your PII for improper purposes. Please remember that data security is a partnership. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any user name or password which is registered in connection with your use of this Site. We recommend you change the password immediately if you believe it has been compromised and you should log out of your account and exit your browser after viewing the Site.

  6. Changes to Our Privacy Policy
    This Privacy Policy has a version number and date. If we change the policy, we will also change the version number and date so users can tell that a change has been made. We may make minor changes from time to time as our services change, as our relationship with other partners develops, and as the Internet evolves. If we plan to make a significant, material change in the way in which we collect, use, or disclose PII, we will notify registrants of the change by email and by a prominently posted notice on the Site. You will have a choice as to whether or not we use your information in this different manner.
