1.         SCOPE AND APPLICATION

 

Home Team Sports ("HTS," “we” or “us”), which is operated and controlled by National Advertising Partners, wants you to be familiar with how we collect, use and disclose information from and about you.  This Privacy Policy describes our practices in connection with information collected through the business-to business services such as websites (the “HTS Services”).  By using HTS Services, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy.  A list of our affiliated companies (“HTS Affiliates”) is available at www.foxcorporation.com.

 

As set forth in our Terms of Use , the HTS Services are for a general audience, are not targeted to children, and do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 years of age.

 

This Privacy Policy applies to all users, including both those who use the HTS Services without being registered with a HTS Service and those who have registered with a HTS Service.  This Privacy Policy applies to HTS’s collection and use of your personal information (i.e., information that identifies a specific person, such as full name or email address).  It also describes generally HTS’s practices for handling non-personal information (for example, interests, demographics and services usage). 

 

2.         COLLECTION OF INFORMATION

                                                                                                                 

HTS and our service providers may collect the following information from and about you: 

Registration Information is the information you submit to register for a HTS Service, for example, to create an account, post comments, receive a newsletter or mobile alert, or enter a contest or sweepstakes.  Registration Information may include, for example, name, postal address, email address, gender, zip code, job function and title, company affiliation, and birthday. 

Public Information and Posts consist of comments or content that you post to the HTS Services and the information about you that accompanies those posts or content, which may include a name, user name, comments, likes, status, profile information and picture.  Public Information and Posts are always public, which means they are available to everyone and may be displayed in search results on external search engines.   

Activity Information.  When you access and interact with the HTS Services, HTS and its service providers may collect certain information about those visits.  For example, in order to permit your connection to the HTS Services, our servers receive and record information about your computer, device, and browser, including potentially your IP address, browser type, and other software or hardware information.    

Cookies and other tracking technologies (such as browser cookies, pixels, beacons, and Adobe Flash technology including cookies) are comprised of small bits of data.  HTS’s websites, apps and other services send this data to your browser when you first request a web page and then store the data on your computer or other device so the website or app can access information when you make subsequent requests for pages from that service.  These technologies may also be used to collect and store information about your usage of the HTS Services, such as pages you have visited, and the video and other content you have viewed.

Other parties that support the HTS Services by providing services, such as allowing you to share content or tracking aggregate HTS Services usage statistics, may also use these technologies to collect similar information when you use the HTS Services or other parties’ services. 

Your browser may be initially set to accept cookies, but you can change your settings to notify you when a cookie is being set or updated, or to block cookies altogether.  Please consult the "Help" section of your browser for more information.  Users can manage the use of Flash technologies, with the Flash management tools available at Adobe’s website, see http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager.html.  Please note that by blocking any or all cookies you may not have access to certain features.

Information from Other Sources.  We may supplement the information we collect with information from other sources, such as from our HTS Affiliates or business partners.  

Do Not Track Signals.  At this time we do not respond to browser 'Do Not Track' signals, as we await the work of interested stakeholders and others to develop standards for how such signals should be interpreted.

To protect the rights of HTS and others.  There may be instances when HTS may use or disclose your information, including situations where HTS has a good faith belief that such use or disclosure is necessary in order to: (i) protect, enforce, or defend the legal rights, privacy, safety, or property of HTS, our HTS Affiliates or their employees, agents and contractors (including enforcement of our agreements and our terms of use); (ii) protect the safety, privacy, and security of users of the HTS Services or members of the public; (iii) protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; (iv) comply with the law or legal process; or (v) respond to requests from public and government authorities.

Linked Services.  The HTS Services may be linked to sites operated by unaffiliated companies, and may carry advertisements or offer content, functionality, games, newsletters, contests or sweepstakes, or applications developed and maintained by unaffiliated companies.  HTS is not responsible for the privacy practices of unaffiliated companies, and once you leave the HTS Services or click an advertisement you should check the applicable privacy policy of the other service.

Remember that even after you cancel your account, or if you ask us to delete your personal information, copies of some information from your account may remain viewable in some circumstances where, for example, you have shared information with social media or other services.  Because of the nature of caching technology, your account may not be instantly inaccessible to others.  We may also retain backup information related to your account on our servers for some time after cancellation or your request for deletion, for fraud detection or to comply with applicable law or our internal security or recordkeeping policies.  It may not always be possible to completely remove or delete all of your information due to technical constraints or contractual, financial or legal requirements.
