    3. How the information is used

    SECSports.com may use information provided at registration or information obtained through third parties as your intention to sign up for one of our contests or offers. The use of information provided at registration or obtained through third parties may also be provided to SECSports.com corporate sponsors.

    SECSports.com uses "cookie" technology. Cookies are pieces of information transferred to your hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Such technology is an industry standard and is used by most major Web sites. SECSports.com will never use cookies to retrieve information from your computer that was not originally sent in a cookie. In order to effectively use the site and some of its features, your browser must accept cookies.

    Users should be aware that SECSports.com cannot control the use of cookies or the resulting information by advertisers or third parties hosting data for SECSports.com. If a user does not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows the user to deny or accept cookies; however, users should note that cookies may be necessary to provide the user with certain features available on SECSports.com.

    SECSports.com tracks certain general usage pattern information, including what pages people visit and how long they have been registered users. SECSports.com may log users' IP addresses (the group of four numbers separated by periods, such as 123.45.64.89, that identifies a particular host computer) for the purposes of system administration, site tracking and reporting of aggregate usage information to our marketing and product development teams.

    From time to time, SECSports.com may solicit your opinion to determine your preferences and dislikes in order to provide you with a better product. These surveys are always optional to the user and your decision not to participate in a survey will not affect your status as an SECSports.com user. Should you choose to participate, any information you give us may be used in aggregate form for marketing purposes, and to enhance your overall experience on our site.

    4. With whom the information may be shared

    Once again, SECSports.com will not provide any personally identifiable information, other than to its affiliates and corporate sponsors, about you to other third parties without your consent. SECSports.com may, however, provide other third parties with anonymous aggregated information about our users to illustrate trends and patterns. All third parties with whom we share such information will have independent privacy and data collection practices and SECSports.com has no responsibility or liability for their policies or actions.

    While SECSports.com is careful in choosing its Sponsors and advertisers, we are only responsible for content on our own site. All third parties associated with SECSports.com (including, but not limited to, advertisers, sponsors and other Internet sites) with whom we share information have independent privacy and data collection practices. SECSports.com does not control this collection of information and is neither responsible nor liable for their independent policies or actions.

    5. What choices are available to you regarding collection, use and distribution of the information

    You are not required to receive any mailings that you do not wish to receive. During the registration process, you may have the option to sign up to receive newsletters and selected sponsor offers and discounts. You will not receive such information if you do not select such options. If, after you choose to receive such information, you wish to discontinue receiving these items, you may change your subscription preferences by following the instructions provided within the e-mails received.

    6. The kind of security procedures that are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control

    SECSports.com has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under its control. The servers for SECSports.com are stored in a physically secure and climate controlled off-site facility. Beyond the physical protection of the servers, we protect against data loss by regularly backing up data, performing consistency checks with independently recorded log files to prevent tampering, and restricting access to information on our servers via several user authentication technologies. Only those employees needed to carry out the business functions will have access to information on individual SECSports.com customers. We train each such employee with respect to the SECSports.com Privacy Policy, and those violating these policies will be subject to disciplinary action.

    It is important to remember that whatever you transmit or disclose online can be collected and used by others or unlawfully intercepted by third parties. No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. In addition, we may disclose information to law enforcement or other government officials if we determine such disclosure to be appropriate, or if we are compelled to disclose it by court order or operation of law.
