User’s privacy on the Internet is important to SMARTSPORTS. Certain types of information are gathered about Users, and we would like to explain the types of information we gather, and what we do with this information.
Personal data is collected when Users voluntarily provide data (such as names and e-mail addresses) when registering on this Site. SMARTSPORTS may collect and disseminate to schools, teams, researchers, and partners such data as well as User’s scores. SMARTSPORTS collects additional information that does not identify individual Users, including, for example, the web pages of this Site that are visited, User’s scores (in this case without identifying the User), any feedback from Users and IP addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to User’s computer whenever the User accesses the Site. Web servers automatically identify the User’s computer by its IP address, and when User requests a page at this Site, SMARTSPORTS’ servers log your IP address. IP addresses are not linked to anything personally identifiable at SMARTSPORTS, so although User’s session will be logged, the User will remain anonymous to SMARTSPORTS. IP addresses are collected for the purposes of system administration and to provide aggregate data about the volume of use on this Site. SMARTSPORTS may then aggregate this information with other information to improve the Site and our services.
Cookies are also used at this Site to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that most major websites write to User’s hard drive for record-keeping purposes when you visit them. Cookies allow activity to be measured on this Site and are also used to improve your User experience, allowing User’s to reduce the number of steps when they revisit this Site. Except for personal information voluntarily provided by User (i.e., during registration or use of SMARTSPORTS’ services), information transferred through cookies is not used by SMARTSPORTS for any promotional or marketing purposes, nor is that information shared with any third parties.
The personal and aggregated information collected through traffic analysis software is used for multiple purposes. The information is used to improve the content of the Site, to customize the content and/or layout of the Site for each individual User, and to be able to implement and provide a more User-friendly Site that meets the system requirements of our Users.
SMARTSPORTS uses the latest encryption technology (SSL—secured sockets layer) to keep User’s personal information safe. All personally identifiable information—including name, address, and credit card number—is encrypted using a secure server for maximum security. Credit card and billing information cannot be read as it travels to SMARTSPORTS’ servers. By using this Site, User consents to the collection and use of User’s information by SMARTSPORTS as described above. SMARTSPORTS fully cooperates with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities. SMARTSPORTS reserves the right to release information about Users who SMARTSPORTS believes are in violation of SMARTSPORTS’ content guidelines.
This statement and the policies outlined herein are not intended to and do not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of any party. SMARTSPORTS and SMARTKAGE are registered marks of SMARTSPORTS.
