The Information We Collect
Except as disclosed below, we do not sell, barter, give away, or license your personal information.
(a) Personal Information. Use of certain features of our Sites, like signing up to receive a newsletter, or responding to one of our surveys may require that you provide certain personally identifiable information, in other words, information that identifies or describes you, such as your name, email address, telephone numbers, address, zip code, age, and gender (“Personal Information”). We also may collect and store your Personal Information that we receive from other sources, (e.g. the information we receive from chronotrack.com or athlinks.com or any race registration company we utilize when you register for an event or to be a spectator). Please be advised that chronotrack.com and athlinks.com have their own privacy policies and you should refer to them for any questions you may have about the information they may collect about you when you register for one of our events or to be a spectator using chronotrack.com or athlinks.com.
(b) Anonymous Information. Even if you do not request a newsletter or fill-out a survey, when you interact with our Sites, we may collect certain non-personal information. For example, our servers keep an activity log that tracks all visitors to our Sites. The information in the activity log is anonymous and therefore does not identify you individually. The anonymous information our servers collect may include, but is not limited to your IP address, your registered domain or home server, time of access, date of access, web page(s) visited, number of clicks, software crash reports, type of browser used, session identification number, search terms, search results, access times, and referring website’s addresses.
(c) Cookies and Spyware. We do not install spyware on your computer, nor do we use spyware to retrieve information from your computer.
You have the ability to accept or decline Cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept Cookies, but, if you prefer, you can usually modify your browser setting to decline Cookies. For more information on Cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the information provided by the Interactive Advertising Bureau at www.allaboutcookies.org.
(e) No Information Collected From Children. Our Sites are not directed to children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 years of age. If you are under 13 years of age you should not use this site, and under no circumstance should you send information about yourself to us. If we discover that a child under the age of 13 has provided us with personal information, we will immediately delete that child’s information from the site upon discovery.
