WiredHOCKEY, a division of WiredBIZ Media Inc. ("WiredHOCKEY"), has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for this site:
An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. Web servers, the computers that "serve up" Web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address.
We collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our advertisers and to audit the use of our site. When members and guests request pages from WiredHOCKEY, our servers log the guests' IP addresses. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a user's session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our house rules or terms of service or to protect our service, site, customers or others.
By showing how and when members and guests use a site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. We use the information from cookies to provide services better tailored to our users needs.
Registration Forms, Order Forms, Polls, Surveys and Contests
Our site's registration and order forms as well as occasional polls, surveys and contests require users to submit contact information such as their name, e-mail address and postal address, as well as demographic information such as their postal/zip code, age or income level.
Contact information from the registration forms is used to ship purchases and prizes as well as to provide information about our company. The customer's contact information is also used to send promotional material from some of our partners to our customers (if permission has been granted) and to get in touch with the customer when necessary.
Please note that users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below.
This site contains several links to other sites. Please note that WiredHOCKEY is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such sites. These include links from links in our directory, advertisers, sponsors and partners that may use WiredHOCKEY's logo as part of a co-branding agreement. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data and/or solicit personal information.
Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information on-line that information can be collected and used by people you do not know. While WiredHOCKEY strives to protect its users' personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose on-line and you do so at your own risk.
Our policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond WiredHOCKEY's control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.
The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our members and guests is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your computer to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, WiredHOCKEY cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our on-line products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
When credit card information is transmitted, we or our service providers, as the case may be, use industry standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption. Your WiredHOCKEY user information is also password protected so that only you can access it and view the member information relevant to the account. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or e-mail. Ultimately, you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and any account information.
Remember to sign out of your WiredHOCKEY account and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if your computer is accessible to others or if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet café.
We encourage parents and guardians to spend time on-line with their children and to participate in the activities offered on the sites. No information should be submitted to or posted at WiredHOCKEY by guests under 13 years of age without the consent of their parent or guardian.
Our site provides users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving promotional/marketing information from our partners and to terminate their WiredHOCKEY accounts. Please contact us to do so.
