Revised: May 3, 2023
We strive to help parents ensure that their kids have a safe experience using our Services. Parents or legal guardians can review any Personal Information collected about their child under 13 years of age, have this information deleted, request that there be no further collection or use of their child's Personal Information, or allow for our collection and use of their child's Personal Information while withholding consent for us to disclose it to third parties. We take steps to verify the identity of anyone requesting information about a child and to ensure that the person is in fact the child's parent, legal guardian, teacher, coach or school official. Official Pages are administered by coaches, school officials or others responsible for team or school activities. These administrators have the power and authority to grant access to pages administered by them, restrict access to such pages and deny access to such pages, as they deem appropriate. The Official Page administrator is the first person to whom a parent should go if there is a concern about who has access to an Official Page upon which their child's information resides. We also strive to educate parents and kids about how to appropriately safeguard their privacy when using our Services. We are committed to complying with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 ("COPPA"), which requires us to inform parents and legal guardians about our information collection and use practices. COPPA also requires that we obtain parental consent before we allow children under the age of 13 to access or use our Services or any Official Page. We require Official Page administrators to limit access to the Official Page for which the administrator has administration authority only to persons who are affiliated with the team or school. We urge Official Page administrators to impress upon kids and their parents the need to vet and consider carefully what is placed on an Official Page, and urge kids to check with their parents before entering information through our Website or Services. We recommend that parents discuss with their kids restrictions regarding the online release of Personal Information (as defined below) to the public generally or to anyone they don't know.
Access to the Website by you or by your child is available through a password and unique user name (customer ID) selected by you or the administrator of your team, league or school. This password is encrypted. We highly recommend that you do not divulge your or your child's name or password to anyone.
Our Website and the services and products we offer and sell are intended for high school, college and university students, faculty members and professional and semi-professional players and fans of teams comprised of such persons. Therefore, it is unlikely that children under the age of 17 will use the Website themselves, or purchase any services or products we may offer. Accordingly, we will not knowingly collect or use any personal information from children that we know to be under the age of 17, although parents may choose to provide such information with respect to their children. In addition, we will delete any information in our database that we know originates from a child under the age of 17 unless we have obtained informed consent in compliance with COPPA.
If you are between the ages of 13 and 17, you, your parent, or your legal guardian may request that we deactivate and delete any of your or your child's personal information in our database or opt-out from receiving communications from us. If you wish to do so, please contact us at email@example.com.
Please remember that when you or your child are tagged in a photo, the tag not only reveals that you or the child are in the photo, it also links to your profile and the event, and may have additional information concerning the place and date of the photo. This means anyone who has access to the photo can see who you or your child are and learn more about you or your child via the photo and your or your child's profile. While this can be fun, it also raises some privacy concerns.
In addition to any Personal Information or other information that you choose to submit to us via our Service, we and our third-party service providers may use a variety of technologies that automatically (or passively) store or collect certain information whenever you visit or interact with the Service ("Usage Information"). This Usage Information may be stored or accessed using a variety of technologies that may be downloaded to your personal computer, browser, laptop, tablet, mobile phone or other device (a "Device") whenever you visit or interact with our Service. To the extent we associate Usage Information with your Personal Information we collect directly from you on the Service, we will treat it as Personal Information. We may de-identify Usage Information in accordance with COPPA and use this de-identified information to develop, evaluate, and provide improved Services.
We may use third-party services such as Google Analytics to better understand your online activity and provide you with information we believe may be of interest to you. You may exercise choices with respect to Google Analytics via the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
This Usage Information may include: your IP address, UDID or other unique identifier ("Device Identifier"). A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device used to access the Service, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier; your Device functionality (including browser, operating system, hardware, mobile network information); the URL that referred you to our Service; the areas within our Service that you visit and your activities there, including remembering you and your preferences; your Device location; your Device characteristics; and certain other Device data, including the time of day, among other information.
We may use various methods and technologies to store or collect Usage Information ("Tracking Technologies"). Tracking Technologies may set, change, alter or modify settings or configurations on your Device. A few of the Tracking Technologies include, without limitation, the following (and subsequent technology and methods later developed):
Cookies. A cookie is a data file placed on a Device when it is used to visit the Service. A Flash cookie (or locally shared object) is a data file placed on a Device via the Adobe Flash plug-in that may be built-in to or downloaded by you to your Device. HTML5 cookies can be programmed through HTML5 local storage. You can reject cookies by following the directions provided in your Internet provider's "help" file. If you reject cookies, you may still visit the Website, but may not be able to use some areas of the Website or the Services.
Web Beacons. Small graphic images or other web programming code called web beacons (also known as "1×1 GIFs" or "clear GIFs") may be included in our Service's pages and messages. Web beacons may be invisible to you, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a page or e-mail can act as a web beacon. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to the Service, to monitor how users navigate the Service, to count how many e-mails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed.
Embedded Scripts. An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Service, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your Device from our web server or a third party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Service, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
Browser Fingerprinting. Collection and analysis of information from your Device, such as, without limitation, your operating system, plug-ins, system fonts and other data, for purposes of identification.
ETag, or Entity Tag. A feature of the cache in browsers. It is an opaque identifier assigned by a web server to a specific version of a resource found at a URL. If the resource content at that URL ever changes, a new and different ETag is assigned. Used in this manner ETags are a form of Device Identifier. ETag tracking may generate unique tracking values even where the consumer blocks HTTP, Flash, and/or HTML5 cookies.
Recognition Technologies. Technologies, including application of statistical probability to data sets, which attempt to recognize or make assumptions about users and devices (e.g., that a user of multiple devices in the same user).
Tracking Technologies Usage. We may use Tracking Technologies for a variety of purposes, including:
Targeting Related. We may use Tracking Technologies to deliver content relevant to your interests on our Service and third party sites based on how you interact with our content. This includes using Tracking Technologies to understand the usefulness to you of the content that has been delivered to you. Further information on this, and your opt-out choices, can be found in the discussion below. If you turn cookies off, some of the features that make your site experience more efficient may not function properly.
We are giving you detailed notice of the Tracking Technologies and your limited choices regarding them so that your consent is meaningfully informed. With respect to cookies you may be able to choose to have your device warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you may be able to turn off all cookies. You can do this through your browser settings. If you turn cookies off, some features of the Service may be disabled and the Service may not function properly. You can find more information about cookies at websites such as www.allaboutcookies.org.
We may associate that information with the information that is collected automatically. Automatic data collection may be performed on our behalf by our services providers.
Regular cookies may generally be disabled or removed by tools that are available as part of most commercial browsers, and in some but not all instances can be blocked in the future by selecting certain settings. Each browser you use will need to be set separately and different browsers offer different functionality and options in this regard. Also, these tools may not be effective with regard to Flash cookies or HTML5 cookies or other Tracking Technologies. For information on disabling Flash cookies go to Adobe's website www.adobe.com. Please be aware that if you disable or remove these technologies some parts of our Services may not work and that when you revisit our Services your ability to limit browser-based Tracking Technologies is subject to your browser settings and limitations. Further, App-related Tracking Technologies in connection with non-browser usage (e.g., most functionality of the App) can only be disabled by uninstalling the App. To uninstall an app, follow the instructions from your operating system, mobile device or handset manufacturer.
The Website includes social media features, such as a Twitter feed. Actions you take in connection with social media features may be reflected in a manner visible to others; for example, if you "Like" us on Facebook, others may be able to see that you have done so.
The collection and use of information on social media websites and applications is governed by their own privacy policies. Please remember that any information posted on Facebook or on other social media pages or channels such as Twitter or YouTube is public.
We may receive personal information from a social media site platform or application when you connect through a social media feed, post content, or otherwise interact with us using social media tools. For example, we may receive basic Facebook account information (name, e-mail, gender, birthday, current city, and profile picture URL) through a Facebook page. Also, when you "like," "subscribe to," or send a "tweet" to us through a social media channel, we may receive your username, handle, and any other available personal information from the social media site or application. All information we receive from social media sites and applications is treated and used in the same manner and for the same purposes as described in this Policy with respect to similar information we obtain through the Site.
Actions you take in connection with Social Media Sites may be reflected in a manner visible to others, for example, if you "Like" us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter, others may be able to see that you have done so.
Please note that information submitted to us or to any administrator of an Official Page via a "contact us" or other similar customer inquiry function may not receive a response. We will not use the information provided by you in a customer inquiry communication to contact you for marketing purposes unrelated to your request unless you agree otherwise.
You acknowledge and agree that you do not have an expectation of privacy of any Personal Information and/or Usage Information for any of the matters for which we may use your Personal Information and/or Usage Information as set forth herein.
(a) When You Request Information From or Provide Information to Third Parties. You may be presented with an option on our Service to receive certain information or marketing offers, or both, directly from third parties or to have us send certain information to third parties or give them access to it. If you choose to do so, your Personal Information and other information may be disclosed to such third parties and all information you disclose will be subject to the third-party privacy policies and practices of such third parties. In addition, third parties may store, collect or otherwise have access to your information when you interact with their Tracking Technologies, content, tools apps or ads on our Service or link to them from our Service. This may include using third-party tools such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or other third-party posting or content sharing tools and by so interacting you consent to such third party practices. We are not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of such third parties and, therefore, you should review such third-party privacy policies and practices of such third parties prior to requesting information from or otherwise interacting with them.

We may share your information, including your Device Identifiers and Personal Information, Demographic Information and Usage Information with our parent, subsidiaries and affiliates ("Affiliates").

We are not responsible for such third party’s data collection or practices and you should look to such third parties' privacy policies for more information before you sign up for any third party Co-Branded Area services or products.
(f) EEOC / Affirmative Action Reporting. In conjunction with laws and regulations enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC"), the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs ("OFCCP") and similar state and local regulatory agencies, we may ask you to provide us with self-identifying information (such as veteran status, age, gender and ethnicity). Providing such self-identifying information is voluntary, but if you do provide us with such information, we may submit that information, to the EEOC, the OFCCP and similar state and local regulatory agencies or otherwise use or disclose it for business-related purposes, including, without limitation, responding to information requests, fulfilling regulatory reporting requirements and defending against employment related complaints.
(g) Your California Privacy Rights. California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits California residents who have supplied personal information, as defined in the statute, to us, under certain circumstances, to request and obtain certain information regarding our disclosure, if any, of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. If this applies, you may obtain the categories of personal information shared and the names and addresses of all third parties that received personal information for their direct marketing purposes during the immediately prior calendar year (e.g., requests made in 2018 will receive information about 2017 sharing activities). To make such a request, please provide sufficient information for us to determine if this applies to you, attest to the fact that you are a California resident and provide a current California address for our response. You may make this request in writing at: MMR Digital LLC, 32 Frost Pond Road, PO Box 393, Mill Neck, NY 11765, ATTN: Privacy.

(h) Like many businesses do, we sometimes hire other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples include mailing information, maintaining databases, hosting services, and processing payments. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function, which may include Personal Information.
(i) If we or all or substantially all of our assets are acquired, we expect that the information that we have collected, including Personal Information, would be transferred along with our other business assets.
(j) We may disclose your Personal Information and Usage Information to government authorities and to other third parties when compelled to do so by government authorities, or at our discretion, in any investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringement, other activity that is illegal or unlawful or which may expose us to legal liability, or otherwise as required by law, including but not limited to in response to court orders and subpoenas. We may also disclose your Personal Information and Usage Information when we have reason to believe that someone is or may be causing injury to or interference with our rights or property, other users of this Site, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.
(k) Advertisers. We disclose aggregate information about our users to advertisers and for other marketing and promotional purposes. However, we do not disclose any personally identifying information to any of these entities.
