Surveys

From time to time, North Texas Soccer Online conducts user surveys on a variety of youth soccer-related topics. Our website will advise users that participation in these surveys is completely voluntary, and there is no requirement to disclose any personally identifiable information. All surveys conducted through this site will be used as research for the purposes of assessing and improving user satisfaction, and/or for determining the user's opinion on a particular issue relating to North Texas Soccer or the sport of soccer generally. Survey information collected may be shared with third parties in an aggregated manner for the purposes of showing sponsors of North Texas Soccer and people in the soccer community what the opinions of our members are on particular subjects. However, the information collected in these surveys will not be used for commercial solicitation purposes without the express consent of users completing the survey. Each survey will give users the choice to ""opt-in"" to receiving messages from advertisers or sponsors by checking a box on the appropriate page.
 

Contests and Sweepstakes

North Texas Soccer Online occasionally offers contests and sweepstakes that may be entered directly through the site or through a linked site. As with all other interactive elements of this site, participation in contests and sweepstakes is completely voluntary, and the user can choose not to disclose information. Users who wish to enter a contest or sweepstakes will be asked to provide information necessary to conduct the operation and fulfillment of the contest or sweepstakes. Generally, this includes the participant's name, age, mailing address, e-mail address (optional) and telephone number. Participants will not be asked to provide any other personal information unless it is reasonably necessary to ensure the participant's registration, eligibility of the entrant, the notification of winners and the awarding of prizes. Parents may be asked to provide similar information, along with their consent to permit their child(ren) to enter a contest or sweepstakes, and to sign documents related to the awarding of prizes. All information collected by North Texas Soccer Online in connection with sweepstakes or contests is securely maintained until the conclusion of the contest or sweepstakes, at which time it is deleted from the site's database. Information needed to notify the winners and to award prizes will be gathered by North Texas Soccer Online and forwarded to the North Texas Soccer National Office. However, information collected from users in connection with contests and sweepstakes may also be dispensed to a third-party fulfillment house for the limited purpose of awarding prizes to contest and sweepstakes winners, or to applicable regulatory officials for the purposes of complying with applicable laws. Entities that provide fulfillment services will be instructed to maintain the confidentiality of such information and not to use the information for any purpose outside of the function they have been asked to perform.

Information Sharing

North Texas Soccer Online may accumulate and store aggregated demographic information about its users. This information is not linked or otherwise traceable to any identifiable personal information, and is used solely to advise website partners and advertisers of the site's general audience characteristics and track responses to online programs and activities. Each of these partners has agreed to maintain the confidentiality, security and integrity of the information provided to them. In all cases where personal information is disclosed to a third party, parents have the right to say ""no"" to the sharing of such information.

When called upon to do so, North Texas Soccer Online will disclose information received as required by law, for example, in response to a court order or other specific requests by law enforcement agencies. We will not sell, share, or rent personally identifiable information to others in any way that violates this Privacy Statement or that otherwise jeopardizes the security and integrity of the information collected. However, we may use the personal information received from the users who have "opted in" to have sponsors, manufacturers and/or distributors contact them directly about such things as sales and special offers. We will seek verifiable parental consent prior to sharing information in any manner that differs materially from the practices described herein.
