| NorthEastSportsMerchandise.com PRIVACY STATEMENT|
NorthEastSportsMerchandise.com recognizes the importance of protecting the privacy of all information provided by users of our web site, recipients of our e-mail newsletters and all of our customers. We created this policy with a fundamental respect for our users's right to privacy and to guide our relationships with our users. This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for all products and services owned and offered by NorthEastSportsMerchandise.com.
INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
Registration and Ordering
When using our website and signing up for our newsletter, users must first register. During registration, users are required to give their contact information (such as name and e-mail address).
For our services that require payment (such as ordering products); we also collect order information (such as Name, address, and account name); which is used for order fulfillment and billing purposes only, and is not otherwise shared.
If users wish to subscribe to our e-mail newsletter, we ask for contact information (such as name and e-mail address). We use this information in the same manner as we use contact information in the registration and ordering process described above. Recipients of our newsletters can unsubscribe using the instructions listed at the end of the e-mail newsletter.
Surveys and Contests
From time to time we invite users to provide information via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether to disclose requested contact information (such as name and mailing address) and demographic information. In addition to other uses set forth in this policy, contact information collected in connection with surveys and contests is used to notify the winners and award prizes, to monitor or improve the use and satisfaction of the site, and may be shared with sponsors of such surveys or contests.
We may offer interactive and community features such as discussion boards on our web site. Note that all personal information sent or posted via such features becomes public information for which we are not responsible.
If recipients elect to forward our newsletter to a friend about our sites and products, we may ask them for the friend's name, job title and e-mail address or collect this information if that friend elects to subscribe to the newsletter. NorthEastSportsMerchandise.com will store and use this information to send the friend an invitation. This information may also be used to provide information about our company and related products. The friend may contact us as specified in the tell-a-friend message to request that no further communications be sent.
Communications with Us
We have features where users can submit information to us (such as our feedback forms). These requests for information may be forwarded as needed to best respond to a specific request. We may retain e-mails and other information sent to us for our internal administrative purposes, and to help us to serve customers better.
WITH WHOM YOUR INFORMATION IS SHARED
We do not share personally identifiable information with other companies, apart from those acting as our agents in providing our product(s)/service(s); and which agree to use it only for that purpose and to keep the information secure and confidential. Also, We will isclose information we maintain when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena or other legal obligation, in response to a law enforcement agency's request, or 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) our rights or property. Users should also be aware that courts of equity, such as U.S. Bankruptcy Courts, might have the authority under certain circumstances to permit personal information to be shared or transferred to third parties without permission.
We use reasonable precautions to protect our users' personal information and to store it securely. In addition, access to all of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a shipping/billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Finally, the servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
Our web site may contain links to other sites. NorthEastSportsMerchandise.COM is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each web site to which we may link that may collect personally identifiable information.
