Privacy Policy

We want to earn your trust by being transparent about how MyParentsClub works. You should read this policy in its entirety, but should pay particular attention to these four highlights:

  • MyParentsClub is designed to make it easy for you to share information with other members of your club. Members of other clubs on MyParentsClub do not have access to your or your club's information, and you do not have access to other clubs information. You decide how much information you feel comfortable sharing with your club on MyParentsClub. Additionally, your club's administrator has the ability to add and delete content to and from your club, and control who joins your club. You should review the default profile settings and change them if necessary to reflect your preferences. You should also consider your settings whenever you share information.
  • MyParentsClub is not just a website. It is also a service for sharing information with other club members. You can control how you share information with other members and how they share information with you.
  • A small amount of information, your name and your player's name, are available to every member of your club (but not to other clubs), and therefore do not have privacy settings. For other information, such as your email and mobile phone number, you can limit access to your information by adjusting your profile settings.
  • MyParentsClub is a free service. We intend to keep MyParentsClub largely ad free. We may however, from time to time, advertise products or services that could be of value to you. We will not share your information with advertisers without your prior consent.

Introduction:

Questions. If you have any questions or concerns about our privacy policy, contact us through the Contact Us link at the bottom of every page. When you are logged into the MyParentsClub website, you can also use the feedback link to provide us with your feedback.

Scope. This privacy policy covers all of MyParentsClub. It does not, however, apply to entities that MyParentsClub does not own or control, such as links you or other club members may post or share to other websites. By using or accessing MyParentsClub, you agree to our privacy practices outlined here.

No information from children under age 13. MyParentsClub is intended for parents of student-athletes. If you are under age 13, please do not attempt to register for MyParentsClub or provide any personal information about yourself to us. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from a child under age 13, please contact us through the Contact Us link at the bottom of every page.

Parental participation. We strongly recommend that minors 13 years of age or older ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet and we encourage parents to teach their children about safe internet use practices.

Information we receive:

Information you provide to us

Personal information. When you sign up for MyParentsClub you provide us with your name, email and zip code. During the registration process we also collect your player's name. The player's name is used by your club's administrator to verify your membership request to that club. After you have been admitted to a club, you have the opportunity to provide additional profile information, such as your mobile phone number. Once you register you can visit your profile at any time to add or remove personal information about yourself. In your profile, we only collect basic contact information, so club members can connect with one another. This contact information is only available to members of your club. Other clubs can not access your information, and you can not access information from other clubs.

Content. One of the primary reasons people use MyParentsClub is to share content with other club members. Examples include posting news, creating events, sharing files, sending messages, and conducting polls. If you do not want us to store metadata associated with content you share on MyParentsClub (such as photos), please remove the metadata before uploading the content.

Information we collect when you interact with MyParentsClub

Site activity information. We keep track of the actions you take on MyParentsClub, such as changing your profile, uploading a file, posting news, or creating an event. We also retain summary counts of activities on MyParentsClub, for example the number of news posts or messages sent. This helps us anticipate website resource requirements and support staff.

Access Device and Browser Information. When you access MyParentsClub from a computer, mobile phone, or other device, we may collect information from that device about your browser type, location, and IP address, as well as the pages you visit.

Cookie Information. We use "cookies" (small pieces of data we store for an extended period of time on your computer, mobile phone, or other device) to make MyParentsClub easier to use, and to protect both you and MyParentsClub. For example, we use them to store your login username (if you check the 'Remember Me' box) to make it easier for you to log in whenever you come back to MyParentsClub. (We never store your password.) We also use them to confirm that you are logged into MyParentsClub, and to know when you are interacting with the MyParentsClub website. You can remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser, but in some cases this may impact your ability to use MyParentsClub.

Information from other users. We may collect information about you from other MyParentsClub users (other members of your club) such as when another member posts news, uploads a file, or sends you a message.

Information you share with third parties:

We take steps to ensure that others use information that you share on MyParentsClub in a manner consistent with your profile settings, but we cannot guarantee that they will follow our rules. Read the following section to learn more about how you can protect yourself when you share information with third parties.

Sharing information on MyParentsClub. We designed MyParentsClub to require only a minimum amount of basic information about members. We also designed our profile settings to enable you to control how you share your information on MyParentsClub. You should review the default settings to make sure they reflect your preferences. Here are some specific things to remember:

  • Only other members of your club get to see your information. Members of other clubs can not see your information, and you can not see theirs.
  • You can control the visibility of your email and phone number on your club through the profile settings you select.
  • Your name and your player's name are considered publicly available (within your club), and therefore do not have profile settings.
  • Some of the content you share and the actions you take will show up on your club members' pages. For example, when you create an event reminder, a notice will be posted to the club's news page.
  • Even after you remove information from your profile or delete your account, copies of that information may remain viewable elsewhere to the extent it has been shared with others in your club, or it was copied or stored by other club members.
  • You understand that information might be re-shared or copied by other users.
  • Certain types of communications that you send to other users cannot be removed, such as messages.

"Everyone" Setting. Messages sent to "Everyone" go to all members of your club (but not to anyone outside your club).

Exporting Information. You (and those you make your information available to) may use tools like RSS feeds, mobile phone address books, or copy and paste functions, to capture and export information from MyParentsClub, including your information and information about you.

Advertisements. We intend to keep MyParentsClub largely ad free. But from time to time we will allow ads that would be of value to you and other club members. Sometimes the advertisers who present ads on MyParentsClub use technological methods to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. You may opt-out of the placement of cookies by using your browser cookie settings to limit or prevent the placement of cookies by advertising networks.

Links. When you click on links on MyParentsClub you may leave our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites, and we encourage you to read their privacy statements.

How we use your information:

We use the information we collect to try to provide a safe, efficient, and customized experience. Here are some of the details on how we do that:

To manage the service. We use the information we collect to provide our services and features to you, to measure and improve those services and features, and to provide you with customer support. We use the information to prevent potentially illegal activities, and to enforce our Terms & Conditions. We also use a variety of mechanisms to prevent abuse such as spam. These efforts may on occasion result in a temporary or permanent suspension or termination of some functions for some users.

To contact you. We may contact you with service-related announcements from time to time. We may include content you see on MyParentsClub in the emails we send to you.

To serve personalized advertising. We intend to keep MyParentsClub largely ad free, but from time to time we may allow some ads that would be of value to you and other club members. We will not share your information with advertisers without your consent.

To provide personalized sportswear. We use some of your club's information, provided by your club administrator, to offer your club's members personalized sportswear. Examples of this information include your club's name and team logo. Sportswear is offered as a free service, and there are no member or club obligations to purchase sportswear through MyParentsClub.

How we share information:

MyParentsClub is about sharing information with others in your club, while providing you with profile settings that you can use to share and restrict the sharing of your and your club's information. We won't share your information with third parties unless the sharing is permitted by you, reasonably necessary to offer our services, or when we are legally required to do so. For example:

When a club administrator invites others to join. When a club administrator asks us to invite others to join MyParentsClub, we will send them a message on your club administrator's behalf using their name.

When you choose to share your information with our sportswear provider. You may choose to share information with our electronic commerce provider for sportswear, who is not associated with MyParentsClub. This is entirely at your discretion and we will not provide your information to them without your consent.

To respond to legal requests and prevent harm. We may disclose information pursuant to subpoenas, court orders, or other requests (including criminal and civil matters) if we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law. This may include respecting requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States where we have a good faith belief that the response is required by law under the local laws in that jurisdiction, apply to users from that jurisdiction, and are consistent with generally accepted international standards. We may also share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activity, to prevent imminent bodily harm, or to protect ourselves and you from people violating our Terms & Conditions. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, courts or other government entities.

Transfer in the Event of Sale or Change of Control. If the ownership of all or substantially all of our business changes, we may transfer your information to the new owner so that the service can continue to operate. In such a case, your information would remain subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy.

How you can view, change or remove information:

Viewing and editing your profile. You may change or delete your profile information at any time by going to your profile page and editing your information. Your information is only updated after you click the save button. While you cannot delete your email, you can use the setting on your profile page to hide it from other club members except the club administrator(s).

Deleting your account. If you want to stop using your account, you may delete it. When you delete an account, it is permanently deleted. You can delete your account from your profile page.

Limitations on removal. Even after you remove information from your profile or delete your account, copies of that information may remain viewable elsewhere to the extent it has been shared with others, it was otherwise distributed pursuant to your profile settings, or it was copied or stored by other users. However, your name will no longer be associated with that information on MyParentsClub. (For example, if you post something to the club's new page, and then you delete your account, that post may remain, but be attributed to an anonymous MyParentsClub member.) Additionally, we may retain certain information to prevent identity theft and other misconduct even if deletion has been requested.

Backup copies. Removed and deleted information may persist in backup copies for up to 90 days, but will not be available to others.

Non-user contact information. If a user provides your email address to us, and you are not a MyParentsClub user but you want us to delete your address, you can do so by contacting us through the Contact Us link at the bottom of every page. However, that request will only apply to addresses we have at the time of the request and not to any addresses that users provide to us later.

How we protect information:

We do our best to keep your information secure, but we need your help.

Steps we take to keep your information secure. We keep your account information on a secured server behind a firewall. When you enter sensitive information (such as passwords), we encrypt that information on our servers.

Risks inherent in sharing information. Although we allow you to set privacy options that limit access to your information, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of other users with whom you share your information. We cannot guarantee that only authorized persons will view your information. We cannot ensure that information you share on MyParentsClub will not become publicly available. We are not responsible for third party circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures on MyParentsClub. You can reduce these risks by using common sense security practices such as choosing a strong password, using different passwords for different services, and using up to date antivirus software.

Report Violations. You should report any security violations to us through the Contact Us link at the bottom of every page.

Other terms:

Changes. We may change this Privacy Policy pursuant to the procedures outlined in the MyParentsClub Terms & Conditions. Unless stated otherwise, our current privacy policy applies to all information that we have about you and your account. The most recent version of this Privacy Policy can be found at the bottom of every page by clicking on Privacy Policy.

Consent to Collection and Processing in the United States. By using MyParentsClub, you consent to having your personal data transferred to and processed in the United States.

Defined Terms. "Us," "we," "our," and "MyParentsClub" mean the same as they do in the Terms & Conditions. "Information" and "content" are used more generally and interchangeably here than in the Terms & Conditions unless otherwise limited by the context.
