TeamZoneSports Privacy Policy

«Back

Last Update: July 08, 2008

TeamZoneSports’s privacy policy covers the collection and use of personal information that may be collected by TeamZoneSports anytime you interact with TeamZoneSports, such as when you visit our website, when you purchase TeamZoneSports products and services.


Please take a moment to read the following to learn more about our information practices, including what type of information is gathered, how the information is used and for what purposes, to whom we disclose the information, and how we safeguard your personal information. Your privacy is a priority at TeamZoneSports, and we go to great lengths to protect it.

Why we collect personal information

We collect your personal information to help us deliver a superior level of customer service. It enables us to give you convenient access to our products and services and focus on categories of greatest interest to you. In addition, your personal information helps us keep you posted on the latest product announcements, software updates, special offers, and events that you might like to hear about.

What information we collect

There are a number of situations in which your personal information may help us give you better service. We collect information for market research purposes — such as your occupation and where you use your computer — to gain a better understanding of our customers and thus provide more valuable service. We also collect information regarding customer activities on our website, the TeamZoneSports Store, and on related websites. This helps us to determine how best to provide useful information to customers and to understand which parts of our websites and Internet services are of most interest to them.

 

The TeamZoneSports website, as well as TeamZoneSports Services, allows you to create an “TeamZoneSports User ID” based on your personal information. This convenient service saves you time and allows for easier use of our web services. Here’s how it works: You create a personal profile and choose a password and password hint (such as the month and day of your birth) for security. The system saves your information and assigns you a unique TeamZoneSports User ID. If you update the information associated with your TeamZoneSports User ID it will be available for all your user activity transactions with TeamZoneSports globally.

 

If you use something like a discussion on an TeamZoneSports website you should be aware that any information you share is visible to other users. Personally identifiable information you submit to one of these forums can be read, collected, or used by other individuals to send you unsolicited messages. TeamZoneSports is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums.

 

When we disclose your information

TeamZoneSports takes your privacy very seriously. Be assured that TeamZoneSports does not sell or rent your contact information to other marketers. To help us provide superior service, your personal information may be shared with legal entities within the TeamZoneSports group globally who will safeguard it in accordance with TeamZoneSports’s privacy policy. There are also times when it may be advantageous for TeamZoneSports to make certain personal information about you available to companies that TeamZoneSports has a strategic relationship with or that perform work for TeamZoneSports to provide products and services to you on our behalf. These companies may help us process information, extend credit, fulfill customer orders, deliver products to you, manage and enhance customer data, provide customer service, assess your interest in our products and services, or conduct customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are also obligated to protect your personal information in accordance with TeamZoneSports’s policies. Without such information being made available, it would be difficult for you to purchase products, have products delivered to you, receive customer service, provide us feedback to improve our products and services, or access certain services, offers, and content on the TeamZoneSports website.

 

At times we may be required by law or litigation to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary.

 

How we protect your personal information

TeamZoneSports takes precautions — including administrative, technical, and physical measures — to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.

 

You can help us by also taking precautions to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often using a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure web browser.

 

Cookies and other technologies

As is standard practice on many corporate websites, TeamZoneSports’s website uses “cookies” and other technologies to help us understand which parts of our websites are the most popular, where our visitors are going, and how much time they spend there. We also use cookies and other technologies to make sure that our online advertising is bringing customers to our products and services. We use cookies and other technologies to study traffic patterns on our website, to make it even more rewarding as well as to study the effectiveness of our customer communications. And we use cookies to customize your experience and provide greater convenience each time you interact with us.

 

For example, knowing your first name lets us welcome you with a greeting the next time you visit TeamZoneSports. Information such as your country and language — and if you’re an educator, your school — helps us provide a more useful online shopping experience.

 

As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

 

We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. TeamZoneSports will not use the information collected to market directly to that person.

 

In some of our email messages we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the TeamZoneSports website. When a customer clicks one of these URLs, they pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in the email.

 

In addition we use pixel tags — tiny graphic images — to tell us what parts of our website customers have visited or to measure the effectiveness of searches customers perform on our site.

 

Pixel tags also enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read. And they tell us whether emails have been opened to assure that we’re only sending messages that are of interest to our customers. We store all of this information in a secure database located in Tampa, Florida, in the United States.

Our companywide commitment to your privacy

As we said, TeamZoneSports takes protecting your privacy very seriously. To make sure your personal information is secure, we communicate these guidelines to TeamZoneSports employees and strictly enforce privacy safeguards within the company. In addition, TeamZoneSports supports industry initiatives to preserve privacy rights on the Internet and in all aspects of electronic commerce. And we do not knowingly solicit personal information from minors or send them requests for personal information.

 

TeamZoneSports abides by the safe harbor framework set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information collected from the European Union. You’ll find more information about the U.S. Department of Commerce Safe Harbor Program.

 

TeamZoneSports’s website has links to the sites of other companies. TeamZoneSports is not responsible for their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy policies of those companies.
