The Information We Collect
When you visit the Site, you provide us with two types of information: Personal information you knowingly choose to disclose, and information that we collect automatically as you interact with our Site.
When you sign up to iSport, you provide us with your name, email, gender, and birth date. During the registration process, we give you the opportunity to provide additional profile information, such as where you went to school, your favorite sports, your cell phone number, the languages you speak, and a place to upload photos and videos. There are some cases where we may ask for additional information for security reasons or to provide you with specific services. Once you register, you can visit your profile at any time to add or remove personal information.
We cannot control what other users do with your information, so please use common sense regarding the information you include in your profile and provide to other users. Review your profile settings carefully. When you publish content or information using the “Display to Everyone” setting, it means that everyone, including people who are not members of iSport, can access that information.
We also collect information from you automatically. For example: When you enter the Site, we automatically collect your browser type and IP address. This information is gathered from all who visit the Site. In addition, we store certain information from your browser using "cookies." A cookie is a piece of data stored on your computer to enable our systems to recognize your computer and provide you with certain features. The “Help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies. It will also tell you how to get notification from the browser when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether.
When you use the Site, you may set up a personal profile, form relationships, send messages, perform searches and queries, and transmit information through various channels. The Site may also collect information about you from other sources — such as blogs and instant-messaging services — as well as other users of the Site. We will list you in our publicly accessible member directory. If you do not want to be listed in our directory, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Use of Information Obtained by Us
The information that we collect — from what you tell us and what we gather automatically — is used for one or more of the following general purposes:
- To customize the content you see
- To improve our services
- To tell you about products or services that may be of interest to you
- To contact you
- To conduct advertising and research.
We will share your personal information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this privacy statement. We do not sell your personal information to third parties.
Communications from the Site
We may occasionally send you information on products, services, special deals, and promotions on our site. Out of respect for your privacy, we present you the option to not receive this type of information. To opt out of receiving this type of information, contact us via the feedback option that is always displayed along the far left of your screen toward the top of the page.
You can invite others to be members of our site by importing contacts from email address books. We use the username and password of the email account from which you wish to import your contacts only to invite new members to the Site.
Sharing Your Information with Third Parties
We sometimes release user information on an aggregated basis (meaning that the information from many iSport users is grouped in a way that does not disclose the personal information of any particular user).
If you choose to create a profile or submit information for inclusion on the Site, this information will, in fact, be available to users of the Site.
If the ownership of our business changes, either completely or substantially, we may transfer your information to the new owner so that the Site can continue to operate.
Furthermore, in certain situations described below, we will provide your personally identifying information to third parties:
We may provide information to service providers to help us bring you the services we offer. For example, we may use third parties to host the Site, to send out email updates about the Site, to send you targeted advertising, or to remove repetitive information from our user lists. In connection with these offerings and business operations, our service providers may have access to your personal information for use in connection with these business activities.
We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, protect our interests or property, or prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the Site or using our name. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, or government agencies.
We may offer products or services jointly with other companies and individuals using the Site. (Collectively, these may be referred to as the “Third-Party Providers.”) You understand and agree that if you use the Site to connect with a Third-Party Provider, we may share your information with the applicable Third-Party Provider to facilitate your transaction.
When you ask us to invite a friend to join iSport, we will send your friend a message on your behalf using your name. If you choose to use our referral service (called “Invite Friends” on the Site), we will ask you for your friend’s name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. iSport stores this information for the purposes of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral program. Your friend may contact us at email@example.com to request that we remove this information from our database.
Please note that because the third parties described above operate independently from iSport, iSport bears no responsibility for the activities of any of these third parties with regard to their privacy and security policies.
General Privacy Information
You can use the Site to share information with other users and communicate directly with them. iSport may also make various public forums (such as message boards, chat rooms or news groups) available to its users. Please use common sense about the personal information you disclose to others. You are solely responsible for any postings you make on public forums on iSport, and for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you use the Site.
You can link to our site using social-networking services, such as Facebook & Twitter. These services allow you to share information about your activities on iSport. They will authenticate your identity and provide you the option to share certain personal information, such as your name and email address, in order to link between the sites.
Changing or Removing Information
You can review and modify most of your personal information at any time by accessing your account. Also, upon your request, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally remove you and your personal information from the Site. Removed information may persist in backup or archived copies, but will not be generally available to the users of the Site or other third parties.
The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and in storage of your data. However, no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100-percent secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our website, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Children under Age 13
We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13. If you are under age 13, please do not use this Site or send any information about yourself to us. This information includes your name, address, telephone number, or email address. In the event that we learn of collected personal information from a person under the age of 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a person under the age of 13, please contact us at email@example.com.
