GBOA Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. This notice explains our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is used at our site.

This notice explains our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is used at this Grassroots Baskeball Association of America website (this Site). This notice does not apply to information collected by GBOA in any other forum, whether offline, or online, including through email messages submitted to GBOA.

This privacy policy is effective as of April 1, 2007. Our Site or our practices may change, and if appropriate, we will revise this Privacy Policy accordingly, and post the update version here. If our practice changes will significantly impact the treatment of information you have already provided, we will send you a copy of our updated Privacy Policy, to the extent that you have given us sufficient contact information to do so.

The Information We Collect and How We Use Your Information

There are several interactive features this Site, including the ability to sign up your team to participate in GBOA tourneys. Additional features, such as the ability to sign up for GBOA newsletters or participate in surveys may be provided in the future. Information collected on this Site includes email address, name, street address, as well as other information.

In the ordinary course, we use personally identifiable information you provide to respond to your inquiry. Some of your user information, including your user name, will be accessible to other registered users, for example on content comment pages or in connection with content you submit. User content you submit will be publicly available, thus if you include in your submission personally identifiable information (like beginning your submission with your name, or showing your car's license plate number in your video) that information will become available to the general public for viewing on this Site. Take care when preparing your submission. If you do not wish to have your information shared with other users, you should deactivate your account and cease use of the Site. We may also use your information for other legitimate business purposes, including sending you notices about GBOA, its products and services, or asking for your input and feedback on our products and services. We do not currently share information with third parties for their own marketing purposes.

It is possible, though unlikely, that we might be forced to disclose, or we may feel that we are required to disclose, personally identifiable information in response to legal process or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, for example, in response to a court order, subpoena or a law enforcement agency's request. In addition, as part of our regular business conduct, and regardless of whether you have opted out of having your information shared, we share information with third parties who help us deliver your requested services. We also will share your information in the event that there is a change of corporate ownership. We may also share information with government officials in order to cooperate with a legitimate investigation.

We cannot guarantee the privacy of personal information you transmit over the web or that may be collectable in transit by others, including contractors who provide services to us.

The third party sites are operated by companies that are outside of our control, and your activities at those sites will be governed by the policies and practices of those third parties. If using a link to access a third party site, you should consult the other sites' privacy notices as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.

GBOAHOOPS.COM posts information about programs and events that are sponsored by or co-sponsored other firms or organizations.
