At The Georgia Sports & Event Marketing Corporation, we strive to help our visitors and subscribers protect their privacy while using our services.
It is our policy to respect and protect the privacy of everyone who uses our site. This policy statement tells you how we gather information from you and how we use it. The personal information you provide to GSEM is not disclosed to third parties without your consent, except 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) GSEM rights or property, other GSEM users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. GSEM may disclose user information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
There are cases where GSEM may ask you for personal information such as your name, e-mail address, and birth date. For example, we request personal information for online ticket or package purchases. GSEM needs to collect this information for fulfilling prizes, tracking / verifying compliance with GSEM policies as well as federal, state, and local laws, and / or for editorial and feedback solicitation purposes.
In case you change your mind or some personal information changes (such as your ZIP code), we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update, or remove the personal data you give us. You can do this by e-mailing us at email@example.com.
Personal information provided to GSEM may be used for marketing and promotional purposes by GSEM and our affiliates. To keep you in control of your personal information and the communications directed to you, we allow you to opt out of the following services: sharing your information in our member directory, receiving communications from GSEM about new features or services. If a Guest objects to such use for any reason, he/she may stop that use by e-mailing a request to GSEM.
An IPA address is a number that’s automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the Web. Web servers (the big computers that serve up Web pages) automatically identify your computer by its IPA address. GSEM collects IPA addresses for the purposes of system administration, to audit the use of our site. When Guests request pages form GSEM, our servers log the Guests’ IPA addresses. We do not normally link IPA 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 IPA 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. Some services within GSEM, such as certain message boards, may display IPA addresses along with the message poster’s name and message. Please review each service prior to use and only use those that disclose information you are comfortable with sharing.
Users should be aware that when they are in the GSEM Web site, they could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from GSEM pages that take you outside our site. For example, if you click on a banner advertisement, the click takes you off the GSEM site. This includes links from advertisers, sponsors, and partners that may use the GSEM logo as part of a co-branding agreement. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, or solicit personal information.
Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online for example, (via message boards or chat rooms) that information can be collected and used by people you don’t know. While GSEM strives to protect their users’ personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk. GSEM policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond GSEM control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.
