1. INFORMATION THAT THE SITE COLLECTS AND HOW WE USE IT

(a) Information You Provide To The Site

The Site may ask you to provide personally identifiable information, which is information that could be used to contact you or identify you personally, such as your name, birth date, mailing address, e-mail address or phone number (“Personal Information”) and other information about you, such as demographic information (your age, gender, postal code or similar information) and information about your sports interests. The Site may collect Personal Information and other information about you at various places and forms on the Site, including registration forms, when you submit a question to us, or when you otherwise communicate or interact with us. If we combine demographic or similar information with the Personal Information we collect, we will treat it as Personal Information under this Privacy Policy.

We may use your Personal Information: (1) to provide you with information or services that you have requested or agreed to receive; (2) to process or contact you regarding you regarding a donation or to 1World Sports; (3) to provide you with communications, offers or solicitations on behalf of 1World Sports; (4) to provide you with communications, offers or solicitations from (a) a third party or (b) jointly from 1World Sports and a third party; (5) to process your registration with the Site including verifying that your e-mail address is active and valid; (6) to improve the Site or our services; (7) to contact you with regard to your use of the Site and, in our discretion, changes to the Site policies; (8) to send you a prize from a Promotion (defined below) that may be offered in connection with the Site; (9) for internal business purposes; and (10) for purposes disclosed at the time you provide your Personal Information or with your consent.

Please note that information submitted to the Site via a "contact us” or other similar function may not receive a response. We will not use the information provided to contact you for purposes unrelated to your request unless you agree otherwise.

(b) Information You Provide About A Third Party

If you send someone else a communication from the Site, such as sending information about a book to a friend, the information you provide (names, e-mail addresses, etc.) is used on a one-time basis to facilitate the communication, and is not saved nor used by us for any other marketing purpose unless we obtain consent from that person or we explicitly state otherwise. Please ensure that each person to whom you send an e-mail from the Site is someone that you know personally and that you believe is not opposed to receiving the message.

(c) Information Third Parties Provide About You

We also may, from time to time, supplement the information we collect with information about you from affiliates or third parties in order to enhance our ability to serve you. We may combine the information we receive from those other sources with information we collect through the Site. In those cases, we will apply this Privacy Policy to any Personal Information received, unless otherwise specifically disclosed by us at the time you provide your Personal Information.

(d) Information We Collect As You Access And Use The Site

In addition to any Personal Information or other information collected by the Site, we and our third-party service providers may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect certain web site usage information whenever you visit or interact with the Site ("Site Usage Information"). Site Usage Information may include browser type, operating system, the page served, the time, and the preceding page view, among other information. We may use Site Usage Information for a variety of purposes, including enhancing or otherwise improving the Site. In addition, your IP address or some other unique identifier for the particular device you use to access the Site (any, a "Device Identifier"), as applicable, may be collected. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer, your mobile phone, or other device (any, a "Device") used to access the Site, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier. Site Usage Information collected may be non-identifying or may be associated with you. If it is associated with you, it will be treated as Personal Information. The methods that may be used to collect Site Usage Information include the following:

Cookies. A cookie is a data file placed on a Device when it is used to visit the Site. Cookies may be used for many purposes, including, without limitation, tracking user preferences and web pages visited while using the Site. You may disable cookies using your browser's preferences, but some features of the Site may not function properly.

Web Beacons. Small graphic images or other web programming code called web beacons, (also known as "1x1 GIFs" or "clear GIFs") may be included in our web pages and e-mail messages. Web beacons may be invisible to you, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a web page or e-mail can act as a web beacon. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to the Site, to monitor how users navigate the Site, to count how many e-mails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed.

Embedded Scripts. An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Site, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your Device from our Web server or a third party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Site, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.

2. DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION

We may share non-personally identifiable information, such as aggregated user statistics, with third parties. We do not share your Personal Information with third parties for those third parties’ marketing purposes unless you consent to such sharing at the time you provide your Personal Information. We may share the information we have collected about you, including Personal Information, as disclosed at the time you provide your information and as described in this Privacy Policy and in the following circumstances.

(a) Third Parties Providing Services on our Behalf

We may use third party vendors to perform certain services on behalf of the Site, such as hosting the Site, designing and/or operating the Site's features, tracking Site analytics, enabling 1World Sports to send you e-mail, or performing other administrative services. We may provide these companies with access to user information, including Personal Information, to carry out the services they are performing for you or for 1World Sports.

(b) Contests and Promotions

We may offer sweepstakes, contests, and other promotions (any, a "Promotion") through the Site that may require registration. By participating in a Promotion, you are agreeing to the terms, conditions or official rules that govern that Promotion, which may contain specific requirements of you, including, except where prohibited by law, allowing the sponsor(s) of the Promotion to use your name, voice and/or likeness in advertising or marketing associated with the Promotion. If you choose to enter a Promotion, Personal Information may be disclosed to third parties or the public in connection with the administration of such Promotion, including, without limitation, in connection with winner selection, prize fulfillment, and as required by law or permitted by the Promotion's official rules such as on a winners list.

(c) Administrative and Legal Reasons

We may transfer and disclose user information, including Personal Information, to third parties: (i) in the event we are required to respond to subpoenas or other legal process or if in our good faith opinion such disclosure is required by law; (ii) at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation; or (iii) to protect the Site or to protect the personal safety, rights, property or security of 1World Sports or any individual. We may also use Device Identifiers, including IP addresses, to identify users, and may do so in cooperation with copyright owners, Internet service providers, wireless service providers or law enforcement agencies in our discretion. Such disclosures may be carried out without notice to you.

(d) Business Transfers

1World Sports also reserves the right to disclose and transfer all information related to the Site, including Personal Information: (i) to a subsequent owner, co-owner or operator of the Site or applicable database; or (ii) in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, restructuring, the sale of substantially all of 1World Sports' stock and/or assets or other corporate change, including, without limitation, during the course of any due diligence process.

3. YOUR CHOICES

You may cancel your subscriptions to e-mails you have elected to receive from the Site by following the instructions contained within an e-mail you receive from the Site. Please note that we reserve the right to send you certain communications relating to your account or use of the Site, such as administrative and services announcements and these transactional account messages may be unaffected if you choose to opt-out from marketing communications.

4. THIRD PARTY CONTENT AND LINKS TO THIRD PARTY SITES

The Site may contain content that is supplied by a third party, and those third parties may collect Site Usage Information and your Device Identifier when web pages from the Site are served to your browser. In addition, the Site may contain links to third party web sites that 1World Sports does not control. 1World Sports is not responsible for the privacy practices employed by any third party web site. For example, if you "click" on a link from a 1World Sports partner, the "click" may take you off the Site and onto a different web site. This includes links from sponsors and partners that may reference the Site or the Site's logo as part of a co-branding agreement. These other web sites may set cookies on your Device, independently collect data or solicit Personal Information and may or may not have their own published privacy policies. 1World Sports encourages you to note when you leave our Site and to read the privacy statements of all third party web sites before submitting any Personal Information to those sites.

5. SECURITY

1World Sports takes commercially reasonable steps to help protect and secure Personal Information. However, no data transmission over the Internet, wireless transmission or electronic storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Please note that we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information we collect, and you use our Site and provide us with your information at your own risk.

6. CONSENT TO TRANSFER INFORMATION TO THE UNITED STATES

The Site is operated in the United States. If you are located in the European Union, Canada or elsewhere outside of the United States, please be aware that information collected on the Site will be transferred to and processed in the United States. By using this Site or providing us with any information, you consent to this transfer and to the processing and storage of your information in the United States, a jurisdiction in which the privacy laws may not be as comprehensive as those in the country where you reside or are a citizen.

7. CHANGES TO OUR PRIVACY POLICY

1World Sports reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time without notice to you. Any changes will be effective immediately upon the posting of the revised Privacy Policy. However, 1World Sports will not use your Personal Information in a manner materially different than what was stated at the time it was collected without your consent.

8. CONTACT INFORMATION

If you have questions or comments about our Privacy Policy or our practices, you may contact us by e-mail at Privacy Administrator at contact@1worldsports.org.

CHILDREN'S PRIVACY POLICY

The Site is a general audience web site that does not knowingly collect information from children younger than age 13 ("Children", and each, a "Child"). However, the Site operates a Kids section that is intended for Children ("Children's Pages"). Therefore, 1World Sports provides this "Children's Privacy Policy" to explain the information it collects from Children on its Children's Pages, how that information is used, and additional information for parents and legal guardians (collectively, "Parents") with regard to information collected by 1World Sports on the Children's Pages.

1. COLLECTION OF INFORMATION

The Children's Pages do not generally collect personal or individually identifying information from Children (for example, first and last name, mailing address or telephone number). However, 1World Sports may collect first name and online contact information (usually an e-mail address) of a Child for one-time use of that information, such as to respond directly to a Child's specific request (for example, answering a Child's question submitted through the Site). After the Child's online contact information is used to fulfill the specific one-time purpose, we will delete the online contact information from our records and will not use it to re-contact the Child. 1World may also collect the first name and online contact information (usually an e-mail address) of a Child in order to respond more than once to a specific request from a Child (for example, an online newsletter subscription). However, prior to contacting the Child more than once, the Site will provide the Child's Parent with notice of the nature of the collection, the ability to refuse use of their Child’s personal information and the ability to request the deletion of their Child’s personal information. Please note that we do not condition a Child's participation in an activity on the Site on the Child's disclosing more than is reasonably necessary to participate in such activity.

In addition, 1World Sports may collect a Child's name and online contact information for the sole purpose of the following: to protect the security or integrity of the Site; to take precautions against liability; to respond to judicial process; and, to the extent permitted under other provisions of law, to provide information to law enforcement agencies or for an investigation on a matter related to public safety.

In addition, as with other areas of the Site, the Children's Pages automatically collect information about all individuals' use of the Site whenever someone visits or interacts with the Site ("Usage Information"). Usage Information may be collected using technologies such as cookies or web beacons. Usage Information may include your browser type, operating system, the page served, the time, and the preceding page view, among other information. We may use Usage Information for a variety of purposes, including enhancing or otherwise improving the Site. In addition, the IP address or some other unique identifier for the particular device you use to access the Site, as applicable (any, a "Device Identifier"), may be collected. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer, your cell phone, or other device used to access the Site, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier. For additional information, see Information We Collect As You Access And Use The Site.

2. DISCLOSURE OF CHILDREN'S PERSONAL INFORMATION

We do not disclose Children's personal information to third parties, except to service providers who provide support for the internal operations of the Site and who do not disclose or use the personal information for any other purpose. These service providers may provide support services such as hosting the Site, designing and/or operating the Site's features, tracking Site analytics or performing other administrative services. We may provide these companies with access to Children's online contact information in order for them to carry out the services they are performing for the Child on our behalf. These service providers have agreed to maintain the confidentiality, security and integrity of this personal information they obtain from us.

3. PARENTS' RIGHTS

Parents may request that the Site delete any personal information that we have collected and retained about their Child. This Site does not typically retain personal information collected through the Children's Pages, but rather, deletes the online contact information after using the information once for the purpose it was collected. However, if you would like to request that we delete any personal information we may have about your Child (for example, prior to our one-time use) or if you would like us to no longer collect your Child's e-mail address or other online contact information (i.e., cause the Site to refuse to accept your Child's e-mail address when submitted via a Site form), please contact us as described in the following section.

5. CHANGES TO THE CHILDREN'S PRIVACY POLICY

1World Sports reserves the right to change this Children's Privacy Policy at any time without prior notice. Any changes will be effective immediately upon the posting of the revised Children's Privacy Policy. However, we will use any Children's personal information in accordance with the Children's Privacy Policy posted at the time of collection, and will obtain parental consent prior to using or disclosing such information in a manner materially different from the Children's Privacy Policy posted at the time of collection.
