in this statement.
Collection of your Personal Information
Softball collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail
address, name, home or work address or telephone number. Softball also
collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as
your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically
collected by Softball. This information can include: your IP address,
browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This
information is used by Softball for the operation of the service, to
maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use
of the Softball Web site.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information
or personally sensitive data through Softball public message boards,
this information may be collected and used by others. Note: Softball
does not read any of your private online communications.
Softball encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites
you choose to link to from Softball so that you can understand how those
Web sites collect, use and share your information. Softball is not responsible
for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the Softball
and Softball family of Web sites.
Use of your Personal Information
Softball collects and uses your personal information to operate the Softball
Web site and deliver the services you have requested. Softball also uses
your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services
available from Softball and its affiliates. Softball may also
contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services
or of potential new services that may be offered.
Softball does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties.
Softball 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, Softball
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 Softball, and they are required to maintain
the confidentiality of your information.
Softball does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such
as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
Softball keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within
Softball, in order to determine what Softball services are
the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising
within Softball to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested
in a particular subject area.
Softball 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 Softball or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or
property of Softball; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect
the personal safety of users of Softball, or the public.
The Softball 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 Softball pages, or
register with Softball site or services, a cookie helps Softball
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 Softball Web site, the information
you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Softball
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 Softball services or Web sites you visit.
Security of your Personal Information
Softball secures your personal information from unauthorized access,
use or disclosure. Softball 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.

Softball will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect
company and customer feedback. Softball encourages you to periodically
