Victory Multisport Community Principles
We built the Victory Multisport Community to make it easy to share information with our athletes and people interested in our style of mutual support, motivation and coaching. We understand that you may not want everyone in the world to have the information you share on the Victory Multisport Community website; that is why we give you control of your information. Our default privacy settings limit the information displayed in your profile and other reasonable community limitations that we will timely communicate with you.
The Victory Multisport Community follows two core principles:
You should have control over your personal information.
The Victory Multisport Community helps you share information with other members of the community. You choose what information you put in your profile, including contact and personal information, pictures, and interests.
You should have access to the information others want to share.
Sharing information should be easy. And we want to provide you with the privacy tools necessary to control how and with whom you share that information. If you have questions or ideas, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
EU Safe Harbor Participation
We subscribe to the EU Safe Harbor Privacy Framework as set forth by the United States Department of Commerce. If you have any questions or complaints regarding our compliance with the Safe Harbor you should first contact us at email@example.com.
The Information We Collect
When you visit the Victory Multisport Community you provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected by us and WebSite use information collected by us as you interact with our WebSite. When you register with the Victory Multisport Community, you provide us with certain personal information, such as your name, your email address, and any other personal or preference information that you choose to provide to us.
When you use the Victory Multisport Community, you may set up your personal profile, form relationships, send messages, perform searches and queries, and transmit information through various channels. When you update information, we usually keep a backup copy of the prior version for a reasonable period of time to enable reversion to the prior version of that information.
Any improper collection or misuse of information provided on the Victory Multisport Community is a violation of the Victory Multisport Community Terms of Service and should be reported to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Victory Multisport Community may also collect information about you from other sources, such as newspapers, blogs, instant messaging services, and other users of the Victory Multisport Community service through the operation of the service (e.g., photo tags, likes, shares) in order to provide you with more useful information and a more personalized experience.
By using the Victory Multisport Community, you are consenting to have your personal data transferred to and processed in the United States. We will take reasonable action to ensure it is contained within the United States but are not responsible if data is transferred outside of the United States.
Children Under Age 13
The Victory Multisport Community does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 and does not allow such persons to register to our Website. If you are under the age of 13, please do not attempt to register for the Victory Multisport Community or send any information about yourself to us, including but not limited to your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 may provide any personal information to or on the Victory Multisport Community/Website. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at email@example.com.
Children Between the Ages of 13 and 18
We recommend that minors over the age of 13 ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet.
Use of Information Obtained by the Victory Multisport
When you register with the Victory Multisport Community, you create your own profile and settings. Your profile information, as well as your name, email and photo, are displayed to people in the community to enable you to connect with people in the Victory Multisport Community. We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services offered by the Victory Multisport Community that we think you may find valuable.
Profile information is used by the Victory Multisport Community primarily to be presented back to and edited by you when you access the service and to be presented to others permitted to view that information by your settings. In some cases where your settings permit it, other Victory Multisport Community users may be able to supplement your profile.
Profile information you submit to the Victory Multisport Community will be available to other users of the Victory Multisport Community who belong to at least one of the communities where you are connected. This is controlled by how much you provide and through your settings. Your name and profile picture thumbnail will be available in search results across the Victory Multisport Community.
The Victory Multisport Community may send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. Generally, you may opt out of such emails, though Victory Multisport maintains the right to send you notices about your account even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.
We may use information about you that we collect from other sources, including but not limited to newspapers and Internet sources such as blogs, instant messaging services, the Victory Multisport Community Platform developers and other users of the Victory Multisport Community, to link to your profile. Where such information is used, we will limit or delete upon request.
Sharing Your Information with Third Parties
The Victory Multisport Community is about sharing information with others — athletes, coaches and supporters — while providing you with privacy settings that restrict other users from accessing your information. We allow you to choose the information you provide the Victory Multisport Community. Our network architecture and your settings allow you to make informed choices about who has access to your information. We share your information with third parties only in limited circumstances where we believe such sharing is 1) reasonably necessary to offer the service, 2) legally required or, 3) permitted by you. For example:
Your posts may aggregate the information you provide and make it available to other members according to your settings.
Unlike most sites on the Web, the Victory Multisport Community limits access to site information by third party search engine "crawlers" (e.g. Google, Yahoo, MSN, Ask).
We may provide information to service providers to help us bring you the services we offer. Specifically, we may use third parties to facilitate our business, such as to host the service at a co-location facility for servers, to send out email updates about the Victory Multisport Community, to remove repetitive information from our user lists, to process payments for products or services, or to provide links (including sponsored links). In connection with these offerings and business operations, our service providers may have access to your personal information for use for a limited time in connection with these business activities. Where we utilize third parties for the processing of any personal information, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information to the Victory Multisport Community-specified purposes.
We occasionally provide demonstration accounts that allow non-users a glimpse into the Victory Multisport Community world. Such accounts have only limited capabilities (e.g., direct messaging is disabled) and passwords are changed regularly to limit possible misuse.
We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information until we have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the Victory Multisport Community service or using the Victory Multisport Community name, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.
We let you choose to share information with marketers or electronic commerce providers through sponsored groups or other on-site offers.
We may offer stores or provide services jointly with other companies in the Victory Multisport Community. You can tell when another company is involved in any store or service provided on the Victory Multisport Community, and we may share customer information with that company in connection with your use of that store or service.
When you use the Victory Multisport Community, certain information you post or share with third parties (e.g., other athletes or someone in your circle), such as personal information, comments, messages, photos, videos, or other information, may be shared with other users in accordance with the settings you select. All such sharing of information is done at your own risk. Please keep in mind that if you disclose personal information in your profile or when posting comments, messages, photos, videos, or other items, this information may become publicly available.
Third Party Advertising
Third party advertisers have no access to your contact information stored on the Victory Multisport Community unless you choose to share it with them.
Changing or Removing Information
Access and control over most personal information on the Victory Multisport Community is readily available through the profile editing tools. The Victory Multisport Community users may modify or delete any of their profile information at any time by logging into their account. Information will be updated immediately. Individuals who wish to deactivate their Victory Multisport Community account may do so by deleting all personal information, logging out of the platform, and requesting your account be removed via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Removed information may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time but will not be generally available to members of the Victory Multisport Community.
Where you make use of the communication features of the service to share information with other individuals on the Victory Multisport Community, however, (e.g., sending a personal message to another the Victory Multisport Community user) you generally cannot remove such communications.
The Victory Multisport Community takes appropriate precautions to protect our users' information. Your account information is located on a secured server behind a firewall. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number or your password), we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). (To learn more about SSL, go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_Sockets_Layer). Because email and instant messaging are not recognized as secure communications, we request that you not send private information to us by email or instant messaging services. If you have any questions about the security of the Victory Multisport Community or Web Site, please contact us at email@example.com.
