Use of your Personal Information

Soft Lacrosse™ collects and uses your personal information to operate the Soft Lacrosse™ Web site, deliver the services you have requested and to contact you about the products/services on our site in which you have expressed an interest or that we think you may be interested in. Soft Lacrosse™ also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Soft Lacrosse™ and its affiliates. Soft Lacrosse™ may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered. Soft Lacrosse™ may also offer contests through their website. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to participate and disclose any requested information. Soft Lacrosse™ does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Soft Lacrosse™ may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, Soft Lacrosse™ may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Soft Lacrosse™, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

Soft Lacrosse™ does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent. Soft Lacrosse™ keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within Soft Lacrosse™, in order to determine what Soft Lacrosse™ services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within Soft Lacrosse™ to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area. Soft Lacrosse™ Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Soft Lacrosse™ or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Soft Lacrosse™; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Soft Lacrosse™, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The Soft Lacrosse™ Web site use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Soft Lacrosse™ pages, or register with Soft Lacrosse™ site or services, a cookie helps Soft Lacrosse™ to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Soft Lacrosse™ Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Soft Lacrosse™ features that you customized. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Soft Lacrosse™ services or Web sites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

Soft Lacrosse™ secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Soft Lacrosse™ secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. Changes to this Statement

Soft Lacrosse™ reserves the right to make changes to this Statement of Privacy at any time and for any reason without prior notice. Any changes to this Statement of Privacy will be posted on this page so that you are always aware of our policies. Soft Lacrosse™ will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to also reflect company and customer feedback. Soft Lacrosse™ encourages you to periodically review this Statement of Privacy to be informed of how Soft Lacrosse™ is protecting your information.

Soft Lacrosse™ communicates with our customers on a regular basis via email.

Generally, members cannot opt out of these communications, but they will be primarily informational in nature rather than promotional. However, you can opt-out if you do not want to receive other types of communications from us, such as messages or updates from us regarding new services and products offered on our website or if you do not want us to share your personal information with third parties.
