WATERLOO BLACK HAWKS HOCKEY ONLINE PRIVACY POLICY
The policies below are applicable to the waterlooblackhawks.com website maintained by the Waterloo Black Hawks. The Black Hawks are committed to both protecting the privacy of users of our interactive products and services and providing those users with as many opportunities and services as possible. As such, this Privacy Policy covers the Waterloo Black Hawks' treatment of personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information that the Waterloo Black Hawks collect when you are on the Waterloo Black Hawks website and when you use the services provided on Waterloo Black Hawks.com. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that the Waterloo Black Hawks do not own or control, or to people that the Waterloo Black Hawks do not employ or manage.

Personal Information
The Waterloo Black Hawks collect personally identifiable information during (i) contest or sweepstakes registration, (ii) subscription registration for sites that require a subscription, (iii) certain surveys or polls conducted on our website, and (iv) online shopping. Personal information includes, among other things, a users name, credit card number, address, telephone number, date of birth, gender, email address or other internet address. In addition, registration is required and information is collected in certain portions of the service in which guests provide content submissions and suggestions or participate in interactive online activities (e.g., community postings, chat, or bulletin boards).

Non-Personally Identifiable Information
In addition to the use of personal information to operate the Waterloo Black Hawks website, the Waterloo Black Hawks may also gather non-personally identifiable information, which may be used by the Waterloo Black Hawks. Generally, "non-personally identifiable information" means information that is collected through "traffic data" and may entail the use of "Cookies", "IP Addresses" or other numeric codes used to identify a computer or monitor how a user accesses a website.

Information We Request Directly From You
The Waterloo Black Hawks may specifically ask for personal information about you when you sign up to use a service or when you order a product. We require certain information (such as name, email address, billing address, credit card number) in order to provide that service or product to you. We also may ask you for information about your interests and other personal information so that both you and we can take advantage of the interactivity of the Internet, but you may always choose whether to respond or not.

Policies for Individuals Under 13
The Waterloo Black Hawks encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate in the interactive activities offered on the sites. No information should be submitted to or posted at waterlooblackhawks.com by guests under 13 years of age without the consent of their parent or guardian. Unless otherwise disclosed during collection, the Waterloo Black Hawks do not provide any personally identifying information, regardless of its source, to any third party for any purpose whatsoever. In addition, when a guest under 13 registers, his/her parent or guardian receives an e-mail alerting them to that registration and providing instructions on how the parent could delete the registration if so desired. Although guests under 13 years of age are allowed to participate in contests, if such a guest wins, notification and prizes are sent to the parents or guardians identified in the initial registration process. No information collected from guests under 13 years of age is used for any marketing or promotional purposes whatsoever, either inside or outside Waterloo Black Hawks Hockey.

Policies for Individuals 13 Years of Age or Older
With the permission of a guest who is 13 years of age or over, information submitted at the time of registration or submission may be used for marketing and promotional purposes by the Waterloo Black Hawks and may be shared with our affiliates or companies that have been prescreened by the Waterloo Black Hawks. If a guest objects to such use for any reason, he/she may stop that use by e-mail request. By registering with waterlooblackhawks.com, every effort will be made to maintain your information in a secure environment by the Waterloo Black Hawks.

About IP Addresses
The Waterloo Black Hawks collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're surfing the Web. Web servers -- the big computers that "serve" up Web pages -- automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When guests request pages from waterlooblackhawks.com, our servers log the guests' IP addresses. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that a user's session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us.

Use of Cookies -- The Waterloo Black Hawks Policy
What are cookies? Cookies are pieces of information that a Web site transfers to an individual's hard drive for record keeping purposes. Cookies make Web-surfing easier for you by saving your passwords, purchases, and preferences while you're at our site. The use of cookies is an Industry standard -- you'll find them at most major Web sites. By showing how and when guests use the site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies.

Examples of How waterlooblackhawks.com Uses Cookies
A cookie lets the computers remember that you've registered, which allows us to speed up your future activities at our sites. Similarly, waterlooblackhawks.com uses a temporary cookie to track which products you've chosen to purchase while shopping. The cookie expires once you're done shopping. Letting it do the record keeping saves you the trouble of entering information over and over again during a single visit. If you decline this cookie, you may have difficulty ordering your selections.

How waterlooblackhawks.com Does Not Use Cookies

You may occasionally get cookies from our advertisers. The Waterloo Black Hawks do not control these cookies, and these cookies are not subject to the Waterloo Black Hawks cookie policy. The use of advertising cookies sent by third-party servers is standard in the Internet industry. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies.

However, it is possible that some parts of the site, such as the shopping, contest, and game areas, will not function properly if you do so.

Links to Other Sites
Users should be aware that when you are on waterlooblackhawks.com you could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from Waterloo Black Hawks.com that take you outside our service. For example, if you "click" on a banner advertisement, the "click" takes you off waterlooblackhawks.com.
