Information Collection and Use
SC Youth Soccer is the sole owner of the customer information collected on this site. We will not share this information in any ways other than those disclosed in this statement. SCYS collects information from our users at several points on our website.
Throughout our site, you are provided with the opportunity to contact us via email to ask questions, request information and materials, register for online presentations, or provide comments and suggestions. You may also be offered the opportunity to have one of our representatives contact you.. We may request additional personal information from you, such as your name and telephone number, to help us satisfy your request.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive, containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie provides user benefits and is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. For example, by setting a cookie on our site a user would not have to enter a password more than once. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site, though some areas may be functionally limited. For example, a user will not be able to take full advantage of our mailing list subscription tools. Cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the onsite experience.
Our website servers generate standard traffic log files. We use these files to prepare aggregate traffic statistics for our site. There is no personally-identifiable information in these log files. We use IP addresses and cookie values to analyze trends, administer the site, track users' movements,
and gather broad demographic information to improve the performance of our site.
Requested Services and Product Evaluations
We communicate with the user to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account via email or phone. Two expiration reminder notices are sent by email to users who have obtained a trial license for one of our products.
When a user enrolls for SCYS news, they will be asked to provide certain personal information in order for us to create their online account. The user's information may be used for occasional mailings from SCYSsponsors.
We request user information on our order form. A user may be asked to provide contact information (e.g. name and shipping address) and financial information (e.g. credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fulfill orders. If we have difficulty processing an order, the contact information is used to contact the customer.
Surveys & Contests
From time to time, our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user can decide whether or not to disclose their information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code and age range). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of improving our products and our site.
Users are offered the option of subscribing to relevant mailing lists at various other locations throughout the site, for reasons of user convenience only. It is not necessary to subscribe to any SCYS mailing list to use our Web site or purchase our products. SCYS includes archives of mailing
lists taken from our membership records. SCYS cannot guarantee that SCYS members will not receive emails from SCYS. However, non-SCYS members will not receive emails once they unsubscribe from the SCYS subscription list.
Our Web site takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When a user submits sensitive information, the information is protected both online and offline. Where our registration/order form requires sensitive information (such as a credit card number), that information is encrypted
with SSL, the best encryption software in the industry. While on a secure page such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked or open.
We outsource shipping and credit card processing. The companies that perform these services do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that SCYS is not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites. We encourage our users to be aware of when they leave our site, and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable
information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by the SCYS Web site.
SCYS makes mailing list archives, chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or news groups available to its users. As any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public, caution should be exercised when disclosing personal information.
Periodically, SCYS notifies our users of new products, announcements, upgrades, news and updates.
Please be aware that you may not opt out of receiving information regarding the initial use, evaluation, or expiration of
our products or services.
