Streetplay.com's privacy policy (3/28/2003)
We at Streetplay.com are dedicated to keeping the personal information you share with us private. What follows is our detailed privacy policy. If you feel that we are not abiding by this stated policy, please contact us at privacy@streetplay.com, or use our Contact Us page.

Information Collection and Use

Streetplay.com is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Streetplay.com collects information from our users at several different points on our website.

Cookies
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site. For example, the user will not be able to participate in any of our online polls. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.

Some of our business partners use cookies on our site (for example, advertisers). However, we have no access to or control over these cookies.

Log Files
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Sharing
We will share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.

We partner with another party to provide specific services (specifically, Microsoft bCentral to manage our newsletter). When the user signs up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services. They will not share this information with other companies, nor will they contact you for reasons other than to provide the service. If you find this ever to be untrue, please contact us.

Links
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that Streetplay.com is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

Newsletter
If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and e-mail address.

Surveys, Contests, Contact Us, Discussion areas
Occasionally, our site requests information from users. Unless otherwise noted within the site, use of these services is completely voluntary and is not required to view information or use our site, and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name, e-mail address, and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners, award prizes, and provide further information concerning this site. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.

Our contests may ask for creative input from users (e.g., telling a favorite story). All such information becomes the property of Streetplay.com and will be used and republished as seen fit in any medium unless a user requests otherwise.

Participation in our discussion area is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to use it. All submissions to our discussion area become the property of Streetplay.com and will be used and republished as seen fit in any medium unless a user requests otherwise. E-mail addresses provided by users in the discussion area may be used by Streetplay.com to contact them later for promotional or other reasons.

"E-mail this page" and Postcards
If a user elects to use our "E-mail this page" referral service, or sends someone a Streetplay Postcard, we ask them for the name and e-mail address of the recipient. Streetplay.com will automatically send the recipient a one-time e-mail with the information the sender had requested. Streetplay.com stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time e-mail. We do not add the recipient's information to our database of users or use it for any reason other than the referral; the recipient may contact Streetplay.com at http://www.streetplay.com/contactus.shtml to ensure this. E-mail addresses provided by "E-mail this page" and/or Postcard senders may be used by Streetplay.com to contact them later for promotional or other reasons.

Security
This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.

Correction/Updating Personal Information

If a user's personally identifiable information changes, or if a user no longer desires our services, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user's personal data provided to us. Each of our newsletter messages contains a link at the bottom for the reader to correct contact information, or to unsubscribe from the list entirely. If the user cannot use this link or has contact information concerns beyond our newsletter, the user can contact us by using http://www.streetplay.com/contactus.shtml and we will manually correct/amend the information.

Choice/Opt-out
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter may opt-out of receiving it by using a link provided at the bottom of the message.

If our users want to have their information totally removed from all databases we keep, they can contact us by using http://www.streetplay.com/contactus.shtml, specifying the "Opt-out" option on the form.

If a user provides personal information to us subsequent to having opted-out, that user must opt-out again to be removed again from our databases.

Some services on Streetplay.com will send a one-time automatic e-mail response to reader using them, such as our contact us page, regardless of their opt-out status.

Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether they should proceed with services that require an outside party, or not.

Notification of Changes

If we change our privacy policy, we will state that such a change has been made at this address (http://www.streetplay.com/aboutus/privacy.shtml) so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an e-mail. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
