COOKIES AND WEB BEACONS
You will be notified if the Site desires to use your location and you will be required to opt-in to such use. All such information will be used in accordance with the terms hereof.
COMMUNICATIONS To USAFB:
The Site may have features where you can submit information to us (such as our feedback forms or committee interest forms). Such submissions may be made public. Requests for service, support or information may be forwarded as needed to best respond to a specific request. We may retain e-mails and other information sent to us for our internal administrative purposes, and to help us to serve customers better. When you send an email or submit information to us through the Site, you are communicating with us electronically. You thereby consent to receive communications from us electronically. We will communicate with you by email or by posting notices on the Site. All agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically shall satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
From USAFB: In order to best serve you, we may send updates that contain important information about the Site and our services. For example, we send new users a welcoming message, and verify password and username for our password-protected sites. We may also communicate with you to provide requested services and for account-related issues via e-mail, phone or regular mail. We offer you the option to receive information about our organization, related products, services and special events. You can choose not to receive these communications, as set forth in our Permission section, below.
REVIEWING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
You may update their Personal Information (such as a change in address, email, or phone number) by logging into the user-only portion of the Site. Non-users may update their Personal Information by contacting Member Services by phone at 1-877-536-6822, or by e-mail email@example.com.

CONTESTS, SWEEPSTAKES AND PROMOTIONS
Periodically, USAFB operates contests, sweepstakes, or promotions that may require entrants to register or submit personal information. All entry data submitted via any online entry form will be provided to us (and possibly the NFL Parties and/or a USAFB promotional partner). Participation in any of these contests, sweepstakes, or promotions is voluntary, and you will have the option of whether or not you disclose such information. We may use the information to notify and contact promotion prize recipients regarding prize delivery or other related purposes. It is also possible that we publicly share some of your personal information via the Site, if you are a finalist or win.
If a third-party advertiser or sponsor hosts a contest, sweepstakes, or promotion, we do not collect, nor do we control, the personal information collected from you. Before participating in any third-party contest, sweepstakes, or promotion we encourage you to read the advertiser's or sponsor's privacy statement and rules applicable to the contest or promotion.
You are given the opportunity to choose whether to receive information from USAFB, our sponsors or our publishers not directly related to the registered services. You also have the opportunity to choose whether to have Personal Information shared with third parties for marketing purposes. Instructions for how to exercise this choice are contained in e-mails sent by us, on our product web sites and in each of our publications. Should you wish to not have your information shared with USAFB approved third parties, please email USAFB at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that we will endeavor to implement requests within a reasonable time, although for a time you may continue to receive mailings or communications transmitted based on information released prior to the implementation of the request. You will continue to receive information directly related to your registered services, so you always are kept informed.
PRIVACY OF CHILDREN
We encourage parents and guardians to be aware of and participate in their children's online activities. We strictly adhere to the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and will not knowingly collect, use or disclose Personal Information from any child under the age of 13 in any manner that violates this law.
Parents and legal guardians have the following rights with regard to their child's personal information:
• We will not require a child under the age of 13 to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the Site;
• Parents or guardians may review their child's personal information and direct us to delete the information and refuse to allow further collection or use of the child's information;
• Parents or guardians may agree to the collection and use of their child's information, but still direct us not to allow disclosure of that information to third parties.
• For membership, parents or guardians must authorize the purchase
If a parent or legal guardian desires to exercise these rights, please contact our General Counsel at (317)-614-7750.
We use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving your information. Additionally, we implement commercially reasonable security measures at our physical facilities to protect against loss or misuse of your information. We use Transport Layer Security (TLS) to encrypt your personal credit information, including your credit card number, before it travels over the Internet. Any unauthorized use of the Site may result in criminal and/or civil prosecution.
This Policy applies only to this Site. The Site may contain links to other third-party websites beyond our control. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such websites, even if such websites are listed as affiliates or as those with whom we have partnered. We encourage you to be aware of this when you leave our Site and to read the privacy statements of every website to which we link that collects Personal Information from you. Also, we are not responsible for the misuse of our name, products or services listed on other websites.
CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
If you are a California resident, California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the "Shine The Light" law, permits any California resident who provides personal information to us during the creation of, or throughout the duration of, an established business relationship that is primarily for personal, family, or household purposes, to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, information about the Personal Data, if any, that we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year.
If you are a California resident and would like a copy of this notice, please send an e-mail to email@example.com or write to us at:
45 N. Pennsylvania St. Suite 800 Indianapolis, IN 46204 Attn: Legal Department firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that as a 501(c)(3) organization registered with the State of California to solicit charitable contributions, not all information sharing by us is covered by the "Shine The Light" requirements, and only information on covered sharing and not otherwise exempt under Section (d) of the law will be included in our response. Under California law, businesses are only required to respond to a request once during any calendar year.
If you are a California resident under the age of 18, and a registered user of the Site, California Business and Professions Code Section 22581 permits you to request and obtain removal of content or information you have publicly posted. To make such a request, please send an email with a detailed description of the specific content or information to email@example.com. Please be aware that such a request does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of the content or information you have posted and that there may be circumstances in which the law does not require or allow removal even if requested.
A privacy law is in effect in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA) called the General Data Protection Regulation or the GDPR. The GDPR expands privacy rights granted to individuals in the EU and the EEA. Even though we are headquartered in the United States and generally do not do business in the EU or the EEA, we are nonetheless implementing GDPR compliance across the Site in an effort to better serve our visitors.
The GDPR imposes certain requirements on “data controllers” and “data processors.” A “data controller” is the individual or entity that determines the purposes for and the manner in which personal data is collected, used, and processed. We generally are the data controller of the personal information we collect. A “data processor” is a person or entity that processes personal information on behalf of a data controller. Data controllers and data processors are required, among other things, to enter into an agreement with one another to protect the personal information that the data processor obtains from the data controller. We will work with any vendors that process personal data of EU and EEA members on behalf of USA Football to implement such agreements.
EU residents have the following rights under the GDPR:
• the right to be informed about our collection and use of information;
• the right of access to the information we hold about you;
• the right to rectification if any information we hold about you is inaccurate or incomplete;
• the right to be forgotten, meaning the right to ask us to delete Personal Data we hold about you;
• the right to restrict the processing of your information;
• the right to obtain a copy of your information to re-use with another service or organization;
• the right to object to us using your information for particular purposes; and
• rights with respect to automated decision-making and profiling.
If you are an EU resident and wish to object to or raise a complaint on how we have handled your Personal Data, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also be able to have your Personal Data transferred by contacting us at the same address. In each case, we may require you to provide verification of your identity. You also have the right to make a complaint with the competent Information Commissioner in the EU. Please note that in certain circumstances, we may withhold access to, or refuse to delete portions of your information where we have the right to do so under applicable law.
Data protection is an on-going process. We continue to take steps to enhance data privacy and security for users of the Site and our Services, and we will continue to review our practices as additional guidance under the GDPR is issued by the relevant authorities.
