At GoingToBat.org, we are committed to protecting your
privacy and we acknowledge that you may have concerns regarding the use
of personal information. With our statement, we intend to explain how
we use the information we have gathered from our visitors, members or
Collection and Use of Information
We will not collect personally identifiable information
from you or your child other than what is supplied voluntarily. In order
to participate in some activities, visitors may be asked to provide some
personally identifiable information (see below). We will only collect
enough information from our visitors to make activities on GoingToBat.org
fun and interesting. Except as stated below, no personally identifiable
information is retained in a GoingToBat.org database.
We will always explain the extent of its use at the
time you are asked to provide personal information. If you do not want
this information to be collected or used by us for these purposes, you
can simply decide not to participate in that activity. Under certain circumstances,
opting out may prevent your participation in activities for which personal
information is needed (i.e., contests).
To participate in certain activities on our website,
users must provide their personal information, which may include their
name, age, hometown and local Going To Bat Chapter name. Parental consent
will be required before a user may participate in these activities.
Parental Involvement and Consent
Parental involvement in a child's activities on GoingToBat.org
is very important to us. We never collect more personally identifiable
information from children than is necessary for them to participate in
our online activities. We always require prior parental consent before
collecting or maintaining personal information from children under the
age of 13. We also allow parents to request at any time that any information
displayed about their child be removed from our website.
GoingToBat.org uses personal information collected about
its web site users only in defined and responsible ways. We do not share
user information with third parties except when we have told users about
disclosures, when we have prior consent, or when required by law.
GoingToBat.org utilizes persistent and per-session cookies.
Persistent cookies are cookies that exist even after a client browser
is closed. For instance, if a visitor checks "Remember My Login"
next to his or her username and password, the website is likely writing
a persistent cookie to the hard drive. When the visitor returns, the website
reads the cookie file for cookies associated with the site and returns
information based on the associated cookie values. Per-session cookies
are non-persistent, however, meaning they are written to the visitor's
browser memory instead of the hard drive. In short, per-session cookies
only exist for the duration of the browser session; whereas, persistent
cookies remain available for future browser sessions.
You can control cookies from your computer through Internet
browsers (like Netscape, Mozilla or Explorer) or by using other software.
Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. If you prefer, you
can set your browser to alert you when cookies are in use. You may choose
a cookie that has been placed on your computer by us or by others.
GoingToBat.org is committed to ensuring the security of your information.
To help prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy,
and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place appropriate
physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure
the information we collect online. We use encryption when collecting or
transferring sensitive data such as credit card information. Preventing
credit card fraud is important to protect your personal financial data
