statement is applicable to profootballhof.com and all its affiliates.
The Pro Football
Hall of Fame' policy is to respect and protect the privacy of our users.
The Pro Football
Hall of Fame and its internet partner, Sportvision, Inc., (hereafter collectively
referred to as the Pro Football Hall of Fame) does not collect personally
identifiable information about individuals except when such individuals
specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis. For example,
such personally identifiable information may be gathered from a contest
or sweepstakes registration, the registration process for subscription
sites or services and in connection with content submissions, community
postings (e.g., chat and bulletin boards), suggestions, voting/polling
activities and transactional areas.
identifiable information on individual users will not be sold or otherwise
transferred to unaffiliated third parties without the approval of the
user at the time of collection. At such points of collection, the user
will have the opportunity to indicate whether he or she would like to
"opt out" of receiving promotional and/or marketing information
about other products, services and offerings from the Pro Football Hall
of Fame and/or any third parties. Further, notwithstanding any opt out
of promotional information by the user, the Pro Football Hall of Fame
reserves the right to contact a subscriber regarding account status, changes
to the subscriber agreement and other matters relevant to the underlying
service and/or the information collected.
The Pro Football
Hall of Fame may disclose user information in special cases when we have
reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify,
contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury
to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) the
Pro Football Hall of Fame' rights or property, other Pro Football Hall
of Fame users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame may disclose user information when we believe
in good faith that the law requires it.
The Pro Football
Hall of Fame reserve the right to perform statistical analyses of user
behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of
the various areas of the site and to inform advertisers of such information
as well as the number of users that have been exposed to or clicked on
their advertising banners. The Pro Football Hall of Fame will provide
only aggregated data from these analyses to third parties. Also, users
should be aware that the Pro Football Hall of Fame may sometimes permit
third parties to offer subscription and/or registration-based services
through the Pro Football Hall of Fame site. The Pro Football Hall of Fame
are not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties
providing personally identifiable information.
users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personally identifiable
information (e.g., user name, e-mail address) on the bulletin boards or
in the chat areas of the Pro Football Hall of Fame' sites, that information,
along with any substantive information disclosed in the user's communication,
can be collected and correlated and used by third parties and may result
in unsolicited messages from other posters or third parties. Such activities
are beyond the control of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
should be aware that non-personal information and data may be automatically
collected through the standard operation of the Pro Football Hall of Fame'
internet servers or through the use of "cookies." Cookies are
small text files a web site can use to recognize repeat users, facilitate
the user's ongoing access to and use of the site and allow a site to track
usage behavior and compile aggregate data that will allow content improvements
and targeted advertising. Cookies are not programs that come onto a user's
system and damage files. Generally, cookies work by assigning a unique
number to the user that has no meaning outside the assigning site. Users
should be aware that the Pro Football Hall of Fame cannot or does not
or third parties hosting data for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. If a
is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows the user to deny or
accept the cookie feature; however, users should note that cookies may
be necessary to provide the user with certain features (e.g., customized
delivery of information) available on the Pro Football Hall of Fame Site.
the Pro Football Hall of Fame will allow any user to "opt out"
of further promotional contacts at any time. Additionally upon request,
the Pro Football Hall of Fame will use reasonable efforts to allow users
to update/correct personal information previously submitted which the
user states is erroneous to the extent such activities will not compromise
privacy or security interests. Also, upon a user's request, the Pro Football
Hall of Fame will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally
delete the user and his or her personal information from its database;
however, it may be impossible to delete a user's entry without some residual
information because of backups and records of deletions.
