What personal information do we collect and when do we collect it?

You can browse our Site without registering, but in order to place an order, become a member, and/or request information from us, then you must complete the account registration process and become a member on our Site.

While you are free to choose not to provide this information, without it, we cannot provide you with any of our products and Services, or complete your Membership. Please safeguard your password and all personal information to avoid the risk of your private information being used by others without your consent, and any potential liability for the unauthorized use of our Site or your account.

Additionally, we may also collect non-personally identifiable information, such as IP host, address, pages viewed, browser type, duration and frequency of visits, and other data, and may aggregate any information collected in a manner which does not identify any individual.

How do we use your information?

We will not share or disclose your information to anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy.  We may use your PII in order to give you a more enjoyable shopping experience and to help us identify and/or provide information, products or services that may be of interest to you.  We use your PII to support and enhance your use of the Site and its features, including without limitation:

Please also note that we do reserve the right to transfer your PII and other information as an asset in connection with a proposed or actual merger or sale (including any transfers made as part of an insolvency or bankruptcy proceeding) involving all or part of our business or as part of a corporate reorganization, stock sale or other change in control. In such a circumstance the Transferee would be bound by the terms of this Privacy Policy. We use non-personally identifiable information in the aggregate, so that we can improve the Site and for business and administrative purposes. We may also use or share with third parties for any purpose aggregated data that contains no personally identifiable information.

How do we protect visitor information?

We are committed to protecting the information we receive from you.  However, HPC is not liable for disclosures of your PII due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties.  We have undertaken all commercially reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized Internet access to visitor data retained in our servers, however, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, HPC cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or any information provided online, and you do so at your own risk.  Users must accept all risks associated with any data transmission, including the risk that their PII may be intercepted in transit.

We have implemented commercially reasonable precautions, including, where appropriate, password protection, encryption, SSL, firewalls, and internal restrictions on who may access data to protect our Site and the information we collect from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.

Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all sensitive/credit information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

 

COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGY

Do we use 'cookies'?

Yes we do. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. For instance, we use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart. They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with better service. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser's Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.

If you disable cookies, some features of the Site will be disabled. Some of our Site features might not function properly; however, you can still place orders.

Third Party Disclosure

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your PII unless we provide you with advance notice. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.

Non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

Third party links

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

We have implemented the following:

      Remarketing with Google AdSense

      Google Display Network Impression Reporting

      Demographics and Interests Reporting

Google's advertising requirements can be summed up by Google's Advertising Principles. They are put in place to provide a positive experience for users. https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/1316548?hl=en

We use Google AdSense Advertising on our website.  Google, as a third party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on our site. Google's use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to our users based on their visit to our site and other sites on the Internet. Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

We along with third-party vendors, such as Google use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) or other third-party identifiers together to compile data regarding user interactions with ad impressions, and other ad service functions as they relate to our website.

Opting out:  Users can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Settings page. Alternatively, you can opt out by visiting the Network Advertising initiative opt out page or permanently using the Google Analytics Opt Out Browser add on.

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting PII from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy.

See more: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

Users can visit our site anonymously.  Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our homepage, or as a minimum on the first significant page after entering our website.  Our Privacy Policy link includes the word 'Privacy', and can be easily be found on the page specified above.  Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes on our Privacy Policy Page at www.hockeyplayersclub.com/privacy-policy

Accessing and Updating Your Personal Information:

If you are a HPC member, you may access and update your personal information and preferences by logging in to your account or going to your My Account page. 

You may also update or change your PII or preferences by sending an email to info@hockeyplayersclub.com.  We will take commercially reasonable steps to implement your opt-out requests promptly, but you may still receive communications from us for up to 10 business days while we process your request.

How does our site handle do not track signals?

We honor do not track signals and do not track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place.

Does our site allow third party behavioral tracking?

It's also important to note that we do allow third party behavioral tracking

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation's consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we will take steps to remove such information and terminate the child's account.  If you become aware that your child has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us at info@hockeyplayersclub.com.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices should a data breach occur we will notify Members of the Site within 7 business days.

CAN SPAM Act

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

We collect your email address in order to:

      Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.

      Process orders and to send information and updates pertaining to orders

      We may also send you additional information related to your product and/or service.

      Market to our mailing list or continue to send emails to our clients after the original transaction has occurred.

In accordance with CANSPAM we agree to the following:

      We will NOT use false, or misleading subjects or email addresses

      To identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way

      To include the physical address of our business or site headquarters

      To monitor third party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used.

      To honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly

      To allow users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email

If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can follow the instructions at the bottom of each email or email us at info@hockeyplayersclub.com and we will promptly remove you from ALL correspondence.
