Information Collection and Use
WANNABE Sports is the sole owner of the information collected on this site.
We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways
different from what is disclosed in this statement.
WANNABE Sports collects information from our users at several different points
on our website.
In order to use most services of this website, a user must first complete a registration form.
During registration a user is required to give their contact information
(such as name and email address). This
information is used to contact the user about the services on our site for which
they have expressed interest. It is
optional for the user to provide demographic information (such as income level
and gender), and unique identifiers (such as social security number, postal address, etc.), but encouraged so we can provide a more personalized experience on our site.
We request information from the user on our order form as well as requests for data from our electronic billing service. Here a user must provide contact information (like name and
shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration
date). This information is used for
billing/shipping purposes only and we strive to employ only reputable billing services which have demonstarted similar privacy policies to our own.
If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used
to get in touch with the user.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing
information about the user. Usage
of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while
on our site. Once the user logs out with the option provided, the cookie simply terminates.
For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user will not have to
log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site.
If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use non-restricted areas of our site.
The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in most areas
of our site and unable to participate in the online activities. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site but are not in use for that option at the current time.
However, we have no access to or control over these cookies.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's
movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We will share aggregated demographic information with our partners and
advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify
any individual person.
When we use an outside shipping company to ship orders, or a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services, these companies do not retain,
share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary
We allow third-party companies to serve ads and/or collect certain anonymous information when you visit our web site. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information. To learn more about this behavioral advertising practice or to opt-out of this type of advertising, you can visit networkadvertising.org.
If we partner with another party to provide specific services, the user will be asked to sign up for these services before we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services.

the purpose of providing these services.

links to other sites. Please be aware that we [WANNABE Sports] are not responsible
for the privacy practices of such other sites.
We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read
the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally
identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information
collected by this Web site.
If a user wishes to subscribe to any offered newsletter or other regularly scheduled mailing, we ask for contact information such as name and email address.
From time-to-time our site
requests information from users via surveys.
Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and
the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information.
Information requested may include contact information (such as name and
shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level).
Contact information will be used to notify winners and award prizes.
Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving
the use and satisfaction of this site.

When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information
is protected both online and off-line.
registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as
credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted
and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL.
While on a secure page, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just 'surfing'.
While we use
SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in
our power to protect user-information off-line.
All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information
mentioned above, is restricted in our offices.
Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for
example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted
access to personally identifiable information.
Our employees must use password-protected screen-savers when they leave
their desk. When they return, they
must re-enter their password to re-gain access to your information.
Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and
privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added,
our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on
privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers' information is
protected. Finally, the servers
that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure
If you have any
questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to Commissioner@WANNABEsports.com.

necessary for us to supplement the information we receive with information from
3rd party sources.
