not agree to any of these terms, you may not use the Website.
This policy explains what information we collect about you when you visit our Website and how we handle such information. The information we collect and how we use such information depends upon what you do when visiting our Site.
Collection of Information
For all visitors, including those who visit our home page but are not CSL members, we collect and store non-personallyidentifiable information including the name of the domain from which you access the Internet (for example, aol.com, if you are connecting from an America Online account); the date and time you access our Site; and the Internet address of the Website from
which you linked directly to our Site. We use the information we collect to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of our Site, and to help us make our Site more useful to visitors.
In order to access some of the features of the Website, you will be required to become a CSL member. If you are an individual member participating in CSL leagues or events, we collect information which is necessary to allow you to participate in such activities such as your name, address, email address, age, gender, and other similar information. We will also collect your credit card information to process your sign-up information.
Protection of Information
CSL takes precautions to ensure that all member account information is kept private. We use reasonable measures to protect member information that is stored within our database, and we restrict access to member information to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as customer service personnel and technical staff. Please note that we cannot
guarantee the security of member account information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of member information at any time.
Sharing of Information
We may share information with third party suppliers who agree to protect its confidentiality. This information may include the aggregate data collected regarding the visitors to the Website and certain information that may have been provided to CSL by you. CSL may also choose to share aggregate usage information for marketing purposes; provided, however, that this will
generally not include the sharing of your personal information.
From time to time, CSL may also enter into a special relationship with another company that is not owned by CSL to provide additional features on the Site. These special relationships may include “powered by” partners, business partners, sponsors, and co-branded Sites (“referred to here as “co-branded pages”). These might include, for example, pages that share our name and that of another entity. You should look for a specific privacy statement on any such co-branded page. Any personal information that you provide when signing up at one of those co-branded pages may be shared with our third-party partner. You should also check our partner’s Website for information regarding its privacy policies.
[OPTIONAL: Also, the nature of some features of our Site may require that we share personal information about you with persons or companies outside of CSL. For example, this may occur at a feature that enables you, via our Site, to ask questions of persons or entities that are not part of CSL. By responding to those features of the Site, whether by email or direct entry of
information on our Website, you are consenting to our transferring that information to such persons or entities. With respect to specific registration modules, such as contests, we may disclose personal information collected, and we will post a conspicuous statement on the registration module to the effect that we will be disclosing the information collected with third parties.]
We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf, including technical support services. To perform those functions, it may be necessary for them to obtain access to CSL’s databases and servers, which may contain personally identifying information about users. They are not permitted to use such access or information for any purpose other than that for which they are retained, but CSL cannot guarantee that such third parties will not abuse their access privileges.
We will also disclose any information we possess in response to subpoenas, court orders, or legal requirements, and such information might be used by the receiving party to determine your identity, your web usage and online behavior or other things about you. We generally do not inform users of such requests for information, although we might try to do so in some cases.
If this Site is sold to, or merges with, another company not owned by CSL, you should expect that some or all of the information collected from this Website may be transferred to the buyer or surviving company. If so, CSL will seek to obligate the acquiring company to use any personal information transferred by this Site in a manner consistent with this Policy, but cannot guarantee that it will be able to impose that requirement or that the acquiring company will comply.
Except as otherwise described in this Policy, CSL will not disclose personal information to any third party unless we believe that disclosure is necessary: (1) to conform to legal requirements or to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other legal process received by CSL, whether or not a response is required by applicable law; (2) to enforce the CSL Terms of Services Agreement or to protect our rights; or (3) to protect the safety of the members of the public and users of the service.
If at any time you would like your personal information deleted from the Website or CSL’s records, please email us with your request and we will delete this information.
