Privacy Policy

We value your privacy just like we value ours.

We intend to give you as much control as possible over your personal information. In general, you can view this web site without telling Us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. There are times, however, when We may need information from you, such as your name, location and email address. We use the information you provide about yourself or someone else when submitting a message, joining a club, or other submission.

Although Our site compiles standard log files to measure the site’s traffic, it does not specifically identify any email address.

We never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to Us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

This Privacy Policy applies differently to individuals under certain ages. We ask that parents and guardians take some time to review this policy as it may apply to their children, as set forth under the heading “Maintaining the Privacy of Children.” By using this web site, you are agreeing to the policies set forth below and the current terms & Conditions (“Terms & Conditions”), set forth on this page.

We reserve the right to modify, amend or restate this Privacy Policy from time to time with or without prior notice. Your use of this web site after the posting of modifications to this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of the Privacy Policy as modified.

Or you may provide personal information when signing up for any promotions offered on Our web site from time to time. When you contact us, We may also keep a record of that correspondence.

We will endeavor to provide a link to Our current Privacy Policy on pages where personal information may be requested.

Individuals are free to use this web site without participating in any electronic submission that requests your personal information, and thereby avoid providing personally identifiable information.

What Are Cookies and How Do We Use Them?

A “cookie” is information that is transferred from a web site’s server to your computer’s browser and stored on your computer’s hard drive. This information is then available to the web site’s server when you return to that site using the same browser. This information can be used to identify the user of the browser visiting the site and record, for example, preferences and usage in general.

Most web sites use cookies to customize the online experience based on an individual’s interests and preferences and in order to streamline transactions by recording frequently entered information. We use cookies to assess which parts of Our web site are popular and which are not. Our updates to the web site will depend in part on data compiled from Our use of cookies, such as total numbers of visitors, pages viewed and other traffic patterns.

We may in the future use cookies to assist returning visitors and customers in other ways. At such time, We will update Our Privacy Policy accordingly. We do not use cookies to retrieve information from your computer that was not originally sent in a cookie. You may also receive cookies sent by Our advertisers, which is a standard practice for online advertisers. In most cases, if you choose, you can set your browser to refuse cookies or alert you to their transfer to your browser.

How is My Information Used?

We currently use personal information only for the purposes of providing electronic exchanges of information, specifically requested by the user.  In certain cases, you may provide Us with your name, location and email address to submit a message or join a club. We use and transmit this information only to the extent necessary to complete such submission and ensuing action or response.

We currently do not provide your personal information to third parties. We do however reserve the right to provide email addresses of Our users to Our advertisers, sponsors or business partners, in order to provide Our users with information and promotions We believe may be of interest to them. We offer the opportunity to each of its registered users to be excluded from such distributions by following the clear and concise instructions for removal or unsubscribe at the bottom of any and all bulk communications such as newsletters and special offers.

Maintaining the Privacy of Children

We encourage parents and guardians to review in advance the appropriateness of the different areas of Our web site for their children. As described above, We may collect information from individuals visiting its web site who may, among other ways, register for a service, submit a message or enter a sweepstakes or contest. We will not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under certain ages, typically under the age of 13 years old.

To this end, We have created systems that request a voluntary honesty confirmation that the user is over a certain age, prior to the information being submitted to us.  Therefore, these visitors may not be eligible to participate in certain services offered on the web site. We intend not to participate in the transfer of any personal information of persons under a certain age for any purpose. However, since this is a voluntary system, based on honesty, these systems are not foolproof.

How do We Protect Your Personal Information

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the information We collect online.  Personal information is stored in a secure server database administered by our Hosting Service Provider, and operated through WordPress.
