Privacy

(Last Updated on February 16, 2012)

Island Sports News respects the privacy of all of its users and is committed to protecting such privacy in accordance with this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy explains Island Sports News and its subsidiaries' (collectively, "Island Sports News") treatment of your personally identifiable information collected in connection with your activities on or related to all Island Sports News websites referencing this Privacy Policy (the "Island Sports News Sites") and all services made available on the Island Sports News Sites (collectively, unless noted otherwise, the "Island Sports News Services"). This Privacy Policy also explains how you can ask questions and make suggestions about our privacy practices and review and update your personal information.

We urge you to read this Privacy Policy carefully and to check back periodically as this Privacy Policy may change from time to time. Please note that this Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of companies or websites which are not owned or controlled by Island Sports News.

INFORMATION COLLECTED

In the course of operating the Island Sports News Services, we may collect two types of information about our users: Personal Information and Non-Personal Information.

"Personal Information" is personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, email address, birth date and gender. Personal Information is collected by us when you choose to provide it to us when registering for an Island Sports News Service, such as when you choose to subscribe to a Island Sports News Service, enter a Island Sports News promotion, choose to receive a Island Sports News newsletter, or choose to participate in a Island Sports News survey. In addition, if you choose to contact any of our customer service representatives, we may keep a record of that correspondence so that we may fully address the subject matter. We may also receive Personal Information from our business partners and other third parties, provided that such third parties confirm to us that you have permitted them to share such information.

Business contact information such as the name, title, business address, email address or telephone number of a business or professional person or an employee of an organization is not considered Personal Information.

"Non-Personal Information" is information of an anonymous nature, such as your Internet Protocol Address ("IP Address"), the domain you may have used to access a Island Sports News Service, the type and version of browser or operating system you may be using, and the website you may have come from and visit next. Aggregate information, such as demographic statistics of our users (e.g., average age or geographical allocation of our users), number of visitors and average time spent on a Island Sports News Service, is also considered Non-Personal Information.

Non-Personal Information is collected or derived by us in the course of operating the Island Sports News Services. For example, our web servers may automatically collect Non-Personal Information which is provided through your browser or stored on a Cookie (as defined herein) or through a Web Beacon (as defined herein) when you choose to visit an Island Sports News Service. Non-Personal Information is used by Island Sports News as described in this Privacy Policy.

USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

Personal Information may be used by us for the following purposes:

a. Providing you with the Island Sports News Services and information you have requested from us, including your use of the Island Sports News Sites. We may from time to time use your Personal Information to contact you about changes, enhancements or similar notices related to the Island Sports News Services;

b. If you indicated that you were interested in receiving offers or information from Island Sports News or certain of our selected sponsors or advertisers, Island Sports News may send you email materials and other mailings about products and services that we feel may be of interest to you. If at any time you would like to end your subscription to any such email materials, follow the directions posted at the bottom of the email material;

c. If you enter a contest or other promotion offered on a Island Sports News Site, we may, under the rules of the promotion, use your name and certain other information to administer the promotion, such as contacting, announcing and promoting the winners of the promotion; or

d. Island Sports News may also use Personal Information if it has reasonable grounds to believe the information could be useful when investigating a contravention of a federal, provincial or foreign law or in order to protect or defend a legal interest.

DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

We will not sell or rent your Personal Information to anyone.

We will only disclose your Personal Information to third parties:

a. Where you have specifically given us your consent to disclose your Personal Information for a designated purpose;

b. Who are acting on our behalf as our agents, suppliers or service providers, solely to enable us to more efficiently provide you with the Island Sports News Services. Such entities act under strict contractual controls, requiring them to maintain the confidentiality of all such Personal Information and to use such information solely for purposes related to the provision of the Island Sports News Services;

c. As may be set out in the Terms and Conditions applicable to an Island Sports News Service, to facilitate the provision of such Island Sports News Service, such as fulfilling legal requirements;

d. As required by law, including by an order of any court, institution or body with jurisdiction or authority to compel the production of information, or in order to protect or defend a legal interest; or

e. In connection with an Island Sports News corporate re-organization, merger or amalgamation with another entity, or a sale of all or a substantial portion of the assets of Island Sports News provided that the Personal Information disclosed continues to be used for the purposes permitted by this Privacy Policy by the entity acquiring the information.

LINKS TO OTHER SITES AND ADVERTISEMENTS

An Island Sports News Service may contain links to other websites and services. While we try to link only to sites and services that share our high standards and respect for privacy, please understand that we are not responsible for the content of, or the privacy practices employed by, other companies or websites. This Privacy Policy applies only to the Island Sports News Services referencing this Privacy Policy.

The majority of the advertisements which are displayed in connection with the Island Sports News Services are served through reputable third party advertisement serving partners, in accordance with their policies as described on their own websites.

SECURITY

The security of your Personal Information is important to us. Island Sports News takes technical, contractual, administrative, and physical security steps to protect Personal Information that you provide to us. We instruct our employees with access to your Personal Information that it is to be used only in adherence with the principles set forth in this Privacy Policy and the laws applicable to each specific business.

In certain areas, such as when you provide credit card information to us, we work to help protect the security of your credit card information during transmission by using industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology.

You can help protect the security of your Personal Information as well. For instance, never give out your password, since this is what is used to access your account or registration information. Also remember to log out of your account and close your browser window when you finish using an Island Sports News Service or surfing the web, so that other people using the same computer won't have access to your information.

CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

Island Sports News may from time to time change this Privacy Policy as new Island Sports News Services are added or old ones changed. Changes will be effective when notice of such change is posted at an Island Sports News Site. Please check this Privacy Policy regularly for updates by checking the date of "Last Update" at the top of this document.

ADDITIONAL PRIVACY PROCEDURES

Privacy procedures specific to an Island Sports News Service can be found on a Island Sports News Site at the location of the particular Island Sports News Service, or in additional terms referenced at such Island Sports News Site. Those procedures are an addendum to this Privacy Policy, and are provided to you at the place where they will be of most use to you.

ACCESSING AND CHANGING ACCOUNT / REGISTRATION INFORMATION

Island Sports News provides you with the means to access, update, edit or delete any account or registration information you may have provided to us at any time on your own by going to the appropriate page in the account or registration section of the relevant Island Sports News Service, and changing or deleting such information as desired.

If you are unsure whether we have a record containing any of your Personal Information and would like to confirm whether or not we do, please send an email to Island Sports News indicating all email addresses that you may have given us.

If you decide at any time that you do not want to receive any email materials to which you have subscribed, you may choose to unsubscribe to these emails by following the instructions at the end of the message.
