SPM SPORTS, INC. WEBSITE PRIVACY POLICY

 

Thank you for visiting SportsPageMagazine.com (the "Site").  SPM Sports, Inc. (“SPM” or “we”) respects your privacy and your personal information.  We gather information that you provide to us, some just from your use of our Website and some by asking you directly.  We want you to be aware of how your information is being used.  Our collection of information enables us to provide you with a personalized web experience, and assist us in efficiently reaching an appropriate audience. The information we request is the minimum we believe necessary to achieve this goal.  

By using this site, you understand and agree to the terms of this policy. This site is owned by SPM and may be accessed in the United States and abroad. For data protection purposes, SPM is the controller and, unless otherwise noted, is also the processor of data. Information collected may be retained, and may be stored, processed, accessed, and used in jurisdictions whose privacy laws may be different and less protective than those of your home jurisdiction.

Data Automatically Collected
Certain data is automatically collected from all visitors to the Site. This data includes your IP address, your computer's operating system, and the type of browser you use to surf the Internet. Your IP address tells us both your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and the general geographic location you are connecting from. We may also use your IP address to track the date and time you accessed the Site, how long you stayed on the site, and what pages you visited. If you have configured your browser with your e-mail address, this data may also be available to us.  We use this information to generate statistics and measure the activity our site produces for the benefit of its users. This data helps SPM administer and improve its site. SPM may disclose non-personal statistical information to third parties with whom it has contractual obligations. However, at no time will personal information be disclosed to third parties.

Cookies
Our Site uses “cookies” and other tracking technologies.  A cookie is a small text file transferred from our Site to the hard drive of your computer so that we may track your activities on our Site. Cookies, by themselves, do not let a website know any personally identifying information about you, such as your real name, address, etc., unless you previously provided that information at the website or have set your preferences in your browser to provide that information.  Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them. You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser.  

In addition to cookies, we may use other technologies, including single-pixel gifs (also known as web beacons) on our Site. These tiny electronic images assist us in determining how many users have visited certain pages. We do not use these images to collect personal information.

Information You Submit To Us
The Site may offer opportunities for you to post comments in connection with various features ("Interactive Features"). In order to participate in any Interactive Feature, you may be required to provide accurate and complete personal information consisting of your name and e-mail address, which shall be collected pursuant to this Privacy Policy.  If you use an Interactive Feature, you should be aware that these areas are open to the public and any personal information you post or provide at registration may be viewable by others. We are not responsible for personal information you submit in connection with the Interactive Features, nor are we responsible for how others might use that information, including to send you unsolicited messages. Interactive Features postings may be retained indefinitely.

Use of Personal Information
SPM does not sell, transfer, assign or rent your personal information to any third party, advertisers or other vendors.  We do not partner with or have special relationships with any ad server companies.
We reserve the right to disclose your personal information if required to do so by law, or in the good-faith belief that such action is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process, respond to claims, or protect the rights, property or safety of our company, employees, customers, or the public.

How we protect your personal information
SPM protects your information from loss, misuse, alteration or unauthorized disclosure by following generally accepted industry standards.  No method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure.  Therefore, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

SPM reserves the right, at any time and without notice, to add to, change, update or modify this Privacy Policy, simply by posting the change, update or modification on our Site.  If we decide to change our Privacy Policy, we will post those changes on this page, so you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it. Any such change, update or modification will be effective immediately upon posting on the Site.

IN THE EVENT OF AN INTERCEPTION OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, SPM SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR SUCH INTERCEPTION OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, OR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOST PROFITS) SUFFERED BY A USER, EVEN IF SPM HAS PREVIOUSLY BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.  SPM DOES NOT WARRANT, EITHER EXPRESSLY OR IMPLIEDLY, THAT THE INFORMATION PROVIDED BY ANY USER SHALL BE FREE FROM INTERCEPTION OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, AND DOES NOT PROVIDE ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
