The Information We Collect
One of the primary purposes of the statUP Platform is to identify, improve and promote individuals’ athletic endeavors and careers. Another major purpose of the statUP Platform is to collect, organize and track individual athletes’ statistics, including statistics about performance. The statUP Platform allows and encourages, and thereby collects, information about individual athletes both directly from those athletes and by means of third parties in relation to those athletes, including coaches, instructors, parents and others. This information includes name, birthdate, age, email address, address, physical characteristics (e.g., height, weight) and statistics relating to athletic performance and skill.
We do not collect any personally identifiable information about you other than that which you affirmatively choose to submit to us. From time to time we automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you use the statUP Platform, such as the IP address of your computer, the time and date of your visit, the pages that you access, and the number of times you return to that portion of the statUP Platform. This information is not used to identify you, but is used in the aggregate for statUP’s internal marketing and similar purposes. This process may involve the automatic placement of a small, removable text file (commonly referred to as a “cookie”) on your computer’s hard drive.
Information Collection and Use
The servers from which we host and provide the statUP Platform collect and record certain non-personal information about site visits. The non-personal information that we collect may include IP addresses, the type of operating system in use, the type of browser being used by the visitor, the number and frequency of visitors to different elements of the statUP Platform, and the site the visitor was on immediately before accessing the statUP Platform.
You are always free to set your browser to decline cookies, but in doing so your child may not be able to use certain features of the statUP Platform. The “help” segment of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to configure your browser to not accept new cookies, how to have the browser inform you when you receive a new cookie, and how to erase cookies from your hard drive.
We may also use web beacons to count page visits by our users, to access our cookies, and otherwise to improve your experience on the statUP Platform. Web beacons (also known as clear gifs) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. Email messages that we send may also use web beacons to let us know which e-mails the recipients have opened and acted upon, allowing us to gauge the effectiveness of our communications and marketing campaigns. If you would like to opt-out of these e-mails, please visit the settings in your profile within the statUP Platform. Web beacons also help us manage online advertising, and are provided by our ad management Service Providers. These files enable our ad management Service Providers to recognize a unique cookie on your Web browser, which in turn enables us to learn which advertisements bring visitors to the statUP Platform. The cookie was placed by us, or by another advertiser who works with a service provider. With both cookies and web beacons, the information that we collect and share is anonymous and not personally identifiable. It does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address. Our advertising Service Providers also use anonymous information about users’ visits to this and other platforms to deliver advertisements online that may be of interest to those users.
We do not make a child’s participation in any statUP Platform site activity contingent on that child’s disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in that activity. In order for any child to register on the statUP Platform, we may (as needed to provide the applicable features of the statUP Platform) collect the following information about your child:
- first name
- date of birth
- dominant hand/foot/eye
- team name
- coach name
- sports club
- zip code
- parent’s e-mail address
- secret question (as a reminder for a forgotten password)
How We Use the Personally Identifiable Information We Collect
Disclosure of Information. The statUP Platform will transfer or otherwise disclose the information it collects from children or parents to employees and independent contractors of statUP, its subsidiaries, affiliates, and Service Providers if the disclosure will enable that party to perform a business, professional, or technical support function for statUP, or if required to do so by law. These entities are restricted to using this information only to provide a service on our behalf. We do not share personal information with any third party for that party’s own promotional purposes. We will also transfer or otherwise disclose personal information in response to judicial process, to comply with legal requirements, and, as permitted under provisions of law, to provide information to law enforcement agencies or to third parties in connection with an investigation on a matter related to public safety or the security of the systems used to provide the statUP Platform. We may also use or disclose the information as permitted by law to protect our rights or property, the statUP Platform or its users.
We may use the personally identifiable information we collect to communicate with you from time to time on topics that we believe may be of interest to you and to provide you with the ability to share ideas with other users of a statUP website. We may also use your contact information to notify you of the results of occasional contests that statUP may sponsor.
You may notify us of any changes in your personal information, or request that such information be removed from our records by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be aware, however, that if you choose to have your personally identifiable information removed from our records, you will no longer be able to receive certain updated information from statUP, or participate in various functions of the statUP Platform.
We may disclose information about you to third parties if we have a good-faith belief that we are required to do so by law or legal process, to respond to legal claims, or to protect the rights, property or safety of statUP or others.
In the event that statUP or its business is sold, whether as part of a merger, acquisition, business restructuring or otherwise, and whether or not all of the assets or equity of statUP is subject to that transaction, we may disclose personal information collected about you to statUP’s successor in interest, whether that successor in interest is to the entire business of statUP or just to that portion of the statUP business responsible for the provision of the statUP Platform.
