1. CHILDREN’S PRIVACY. Oasys is concerned about the safety and privacy of children online. We make commercially reasonable efforts to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). COPPA and its accompanying FTC regulations establish U.S. federal law that protects the privacy of children using the Internet. We do not knowingly contact or collect personal information from children under 13, and kids known to be under the age of 13 are prohibited from becoming members. It is possible, however, that by fraud or deception by others we may receive information from children under 13. If we are notified of this, as soon as we verify the information, we will immediately obtain parental consent or else delete the information from our servers. Oasys encourages parents to monitor and participate in your kids’ activities on the Internet. If you want to notify us of our receipt of information by children under 13, please do so by e-mailing us at Support@OasysSports.com.
2. WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT? The Site has areas and features where you submit and/or where we collect your Personally Identifiable Information. You can visit certain areas of the Site without telling us who you are or revealing any Personally Identifiable Information (unless you choose to transact business or to request or supply information through the Site). If you choose to subscribe to the Site, you may be required to provide us with certain Personally Identifiable Information. Information we may request includes, among other information, your name, contact information and information about organizations with which you are affiliated so that we may send you information about Oasys and the Site from time to time.
3. HOW DO WE USE OR SHARE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT?
Business, Administrative and Informational Uses. The Personally Identifiable Information that we gather from you through the Site may be used by us (including our staff, volunteers or independent contractors) for business, administrative and informational purposes. We may use Personally Identifiable Information to: (a) communicate to you news and information about activities, products, services and features of the Site, Oasys, or Oasys partners that we think may be of interest to you, and (b) improve and develop the Site and other services offered by Oasys. You may contact Oasys at Support@OasysSports.com at any time to unsubscribe from our mailing list.
Third-Party Providers. Oasys may engage third parties to assist Oasys in managing certain functions associated with the Site, such as hosting the Site, processing payments or performing IT maintenance services. Although we seek to restrict third-party service providers from using any Personally Identifiable Information received from Oasys for any purpose other than to facilitate transactions being conducted through the Site, Oasys is not responsible for the privacy practices of third parties, including, without limitation, any negligence or misconduct on the part of third parties receiving your credit card or other information.
Sports Associations. In operating the Site, we may disclose your Personally Identifiable Information to the state and/or national sport associations. In addition, we, the state or national sport associations or other trusted third parties may use such information alone or in combination with other information to improve the local, state and national sport programs; to alert your family to events, services or products that we think may interest you; or for marketing research.
4. OTHER IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT PRIVACY.
Cookies and Other Technological Tracking Tools. The Site may use a feature of your browser to set a “cookie” on your computer. Cookies are small packets of information placed on a user’s computer hard drive. Essentially, a cookie serves as a user’s “identification card” for the computer or server that placed the cookie on the user’s hard drive. The purpose of using cookies is to enhance your experience using the Site. We use session cookies, which expire when a user closes the browser in which the Site was viewed. As with all cookies, users can personalize their browser settings to reject session cookies. If you choose to reject cookies, you may be unable to use certain Site services.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information. The Site automatically tracks certain information about each visitor to the Site. This information is not associated with individuals in a personally identifiable manner. For example, we track the browser type, operating system, IP address, referring page or site, the total number of your visits to the Site, which pages you visit on the Site and how long you spend there. Oasys uses this data to improve the Site, for product development and for other business purposes. Oasys may share with third parties aggregated statistics or other tracking data derived from either the Site, but only in a way that does not reveal your individual identity to third parties. Collecting this tracking data is a standard practice on the Internet.
Data Security. Oasys takes reasonable steps to protect the information that you share with us from loss, misuse and unauthorized alteration. We use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving sensitive personal data to and from the Site. Unfortunately, however, security breaches can occur even if reasonable steps are taken to prevent such breaches; for example, we cannot guarantee that information you provide through the Site will not be illegally accessed on our servers or intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. Please contact us if you have reason to believe that there has been any breach of the security of the Site.
Third-Party Links. The Site may include links to other Internet sites that are not owned or operated by Oasys. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of those third-party sites, and we encourage you to review their privacy policies for more information about their information collection, use and dissemination practices.
