At Palos Baseball Organization, Inc. (“PBO” and our website www.palosbaseball.org
), our goal is to provide a fun, informative and safe interactive experience for all of the children and parents who make up the PBO family. We want you to understand and feel comfortable with our site’s process of gathering and disseminating information to/from its users, and we want you to know exactly how that information is used and what your rights are with regards to all of the information collected.
This Privacy Statement is intended to educate parents and youngsters about the steps they can take to safeguard their privacy when visiting www.palosbaseball.org
or any other websites that have links to and from our site. We also hope that the information presented here demonstrates our total commitment to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”). In doing so, the following discloses our information collection and dissemination practices for this website: www.palosbaseball.org
INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
PBO collects information from our participants and families at several different points and is the sole owner of the data collected both internally and on our website. In each case, only information that is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity at hand will be sought. For example, PBO will not ask children for their home mailing address in order to receive an e-mailed newsletter. We will never condition a child’s participation in an online activity on the disclosure of information that is beyond what is reasonably necessary to PBO to conduct the applicable activity.
A parent may, at any time, review any identifiable information collected from their child, and may choose to have some or all of the information deleted from the PBO website. Parents may also consent to the internal use of their child’s personal information while declining to permit such information on the PBO website.
PBO does not require visitors to register in order to use this website. However, users within the PBO database will receive free periodic eNewsletters. The content of the PBO eNewsletters is appropriate for all ages. Information collected to distribute PBO’s eNewsletter may be transferred, disclosed or otherwise shared with third parties who handle the technical preparation and delivery of the newsletter. Any such third parties will not use the information for any other purpose and have agreed to keep all such information confidential. In addition to e-mailing newsletters, we send occasional updates to keep users current on the site-specific services, event calendars, news and other points of interest. Our intent in collecting information from users is to provide the most personalized and rewarding online experience possible. Always keeping privacy in mind, we give parents the option to decline or “opt out” of these types of e-mailed communications. At any time, if you would like to “unsubscribe” or would prefer that you or your child’s information be removed from our website or website database, and/or you do not want to receive future communications from PBO, you may send an e-mail request to our site administrator, Dan Lovell, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PARENTAL ACCESS/CONTROL OF INFORMATION
In compliance with COPPA, any parent of any child who provides information to PBO has the right to review the child’s personal information, order its deletion, and refuse to allow further collection or use of the child’s information. To make this process as simple as possible, all you need to do is e-mail your request to our site administrator, Dan Lovell at email@example.com.
This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. We do not ask our users for more information than is necessary to conduct the various activities being conducted by PBO and all of our information is protected both online and off-line through the use of industry-standard practices. PBO encourages visitors to familiarize themselves, not only with this Privacy Statement, but also to review and understand the privacy policies and information collection practices or other websites that link to and from this site. While PBO screens our links for overall content, information and entertainment value, we are not responsible for the practices of other sites as they apply to privacy, security, integrity and compliancy with COPPA. This Privacy Statement applies solely to information collected by this website.
If you have any questions or would like more information about the security at our website, you can send an e-mail to our site administrator, Dan Lovell, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
