National Junior Basketball (collectively referred to in this Privacy Statement as "we" or "NJB") recognize the importance of protecting the privacy of all information provided by users of our web sites, members to our registration base, registrants for our events, recipients of our e-mail newsletters and all other. We created this policy with a fundamental respect for our members' right to privacy and to guide our relationships with our members. This Privacy Statement discloses the privacy practices for all events by NJB. A current list of our events, web sites, online member base, news updates and clinics can be found at http://www.njbl.org/.
INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
NJB collects information from our website users and members. In this section of our Privacy Statement, we describe the type of information we collect and how we use it to provide better services to our customers.
When attending our events, participating in our tournaments, leagues, and clinics, using some of our websites and signing up for certain selected programs (such as free clinics), users must first register. During registration, users are required to give their contact information (such as name, e-mail address, mailing address and phone numbers). For internal purposes, we use this information to communicate with you and provide requested services, and, for our website visitors, to provide a more personalized experience on our sites. We use such information to improve our services, for marketing purposes and/or for reporting purposes.
For our services that require payment (such as certain events, products and subscriptions), we also collect credit card information (such as account name, number and expiration date), which is used for our or our agent's billing purposes only, and is not otherwise shared.
E-MAIL NEWSLETTERS & UPDATES
If users wish to subscribe to our NJB newsletters & updates, we ask for contact information such as name, e-mail address. We use this information in the same manner as we use contact information in the registration process described above. Recipients of our newsletters can unsubscribe using the instructions listed at the end of the e-mail newsletter. Emails that does not have removal instructions at the bottom, are direct emails from the programs and are required.
FREE CLINICS & CONTESTS
From time to time we invite news and other members to provide information via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the website user or other members therefore has a choice whether to disclose requested contact information (such as name and mailing address) and demographic information (such as zip code). In addition to the other uses set forth in this policy, contact information collected in connection with clinics and contests is used to notify the winners and award prizes and to monitor or improve the use of, and satisfaction with the website or other NJB events. Subject to the given customer's preferences (as described in the "Permission" section below), such information are only used internally.
COMMUNICATIONS WITH US
We have features where our members can submit information to us (such as our emails). Where such submissions include requests for service, support or information, we may forward them to our agents, as needed, to best respond to the specific request. In addition, we may retain e-mails and other information sent to us for our internal administrative purposes, and to help us to serve our members better. Please note that letters to the editor and similar submissions may be made public.
AUTOMATIC DATA COLLECTION
Our web sites, newsletters and, from time to time, certain other products and services have features that automatically collect information from customers, to deliver content specific to customers' interests and to honor their preferences. This information assists us in creating events and leagues that will serve the needs of our members.
We also use an email delivery company to send emails (including newsletters) for which you have registered (or otherwise agreed to receive). Cookies may be used in such email messages to help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising and how customers use our web sites and other products and services.
For our internal purposes, we gather date, time, browser type, navigation history and IP address of all visitors to our web sites. We use this information for our internal security audit log, trend analysis and system administration, and to gather broad information about our member base.
We may combine information supplied by a customer at registration with web site usage data to learn more about users and their preferences in the content of the site. We may use this information to tailor services to your interests or to contact you about offers from our vendors which may be of interest to you. We do not disclose this information to third parties.
WITH WHOM YOUR INFORMATION IS SHARED
Other than with respect to members of NJB and NJB related sites, when we have co-branded, customized, private label, "powered by" or sponsored products and services, or when we join with other parties to provide specific services (however we do not share credit card information with such third parties), then we may share (provide and receive) information about our customers with such third party, subject to the customer's preferences (as described in the "Permission" section below). Other than with respect to users of NJB and NJB related sites, in particular, please note that information collected in connection with online registration, such as at www.njbl.org, will be shared with the sponsor of the particular NJB Chapters.
Finally, on occasion, we may provide targeted lists of names and offline and online contact information for marketing purposes to our NJB Chapters, subject to our pursuant to which our members the option of not having their name or contact information disclosed to other NJB Chapters.

Also, our parent, subsidiary and affiliate companies, entities into which our company may be merged, or entities to which any of our assets, products, sites or operations may be transferred, will be able to use personal information. We will also disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena or other legal obligation, in response to a law enforcement agency's request, or in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property. Users should also be aware that courts of equity, such as U.S. Bankruptcy Courts, might have the authority under certain circumstances to permit personal information to be shared or transferred to third parties without permission. We may share aggregate information, which is not personally identifiable, with others.
