SponsorPark is dedicated to protecting the privacy and security of your personal information.  We strive to provide the safest, most secure user experience possible.  The following privacy policy, updated 01/02/2010 describes what information we collect, how we use it, and who sees it.  This privacy policy applies to the SponsorPark.com website alone, and to information collected online, not offline.  By accepting the Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use in registration, or simply by accessing any page of the website, this policy becomes effective and you expressly consent to our collection, storage, use and disclosure of your personal information as described in this privacy policy.  If you do not agree with the information provided in this privacy policy, we ask that you do not use or access our services.  For purposes of this privacy policy (“policy” or “privacy policy”), the terms “we,” “us,” “our” and “SponsorPark” refer to SponsorPark Inc., and “you” and “your” refers to you, as a user of the SponsorPark.com service.  The Privacy Policy below governs your SponsorPark account and any information you provide or we collect on this site.  In conjunction with this privacy policy, we also encourage you to read and review our Terms of Use for a complete understanding of the rules governing our site.


Information Received, Collected, and Stored.

The information we receive, collect, and store about our customer is stored in the United States and used strictly to enhance the experience we provide by learning more about how our customers use and apply our website, for the connection of sponsors to sponsorship opportunities, and to use for reporting purposes for the customer (about their own information or account history) and whomever they authorize reporting to.  Not every page requires that you offer personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) meaning individually identifiable information about you that we collect online, including but not limited to, your full name, a user name and password, email address, phone number, physical address, or, for certain package of services, contact information, or financial information, and for certain e-commerce transactions your credit card information.  If you find a service or package favorable and wish to take advantage of one or several services or packages, or to access certain website tools or functionality, you may be asked to provide personal information.   Once you do become a registered member or access tools or services on our website, you will from then on be identifiable to us, and will be required to read and agree to the privacy policy before continuing.   You are not required to agree, however, if you do not, it is likely that the full potential of services and tools we offer will not be accessible to you.  There are a few differing ways that we collect information about our members which are the following:

 

Customer offered information: through registration of sponsors or sponsorship opportunities, through creating or editing a profile, through e-mail communication with offered information, through offering contact information to other members, and through advertisement requests and communications.

 

Automatic information:  We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us including but not limited to email communication, information from other sources, and through cookies during your interaction on our site.  Through the use of “cookies,” which are extremely common in the use of the World Wide Web, we collect certain types of information when your browser accesses SponsorPark.  We might also track information pertaining to what pages your are viewing within our site, how much time you spend there, and what searches or queries were made; this information is automatically collected through the use of “cookies” for which there is a further description below. 

 

Information from third parties:  SponsorPark might collect supplemental information about you from third parties.  For example; if you were to incur a debt to SponsorPark we will likely conduct a credit check by obtaining related information about you from a credit bureau, as permitted by law; or if information you provide cannot be verified, we might request additional information confirming the information you provide such as your address or other relevant  information.

With Whom Your Information Could Be Shared:

 

Members of our corporate team

The corporate team may have access to your personal information for the purposes listed above.  We do also reserve the right to review information that has come to our attention and under our discernment is potentially illegal, harmful or in any way breeching the agreement to our Terms of Use or Privacy Policy, although you agree that SponsorPark is in no way obligated to do so. 

 

Service Providers

The personal information you provide and we collect may be viewed by our service providers that perform functions on our behalf; for example, hosting of website servers, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, providing customer service and providing messaging services such as electronic mail and instant messaging.  These service providers may have access to your personal information as necessary to perform their functions.  We do require such entities to support our Privacy Policy and to comply with applicable federal and state laws, although we do not ultimately guarantee direct control over such entities or warrant their use and handling of your personal information.
 

Legal purposes and protection

We do also reserve the right upon rare circumstances, to provide specific information upon governmental request, in response to a court order, when required by law, to enforce our website policies, or to protect your or others’ rights, property, or safety, and for the protection of SponsorPark.  We might also share information with companies assisting in fraud protection or investigation.  We do not provide information to these agencies or companies for marketing or commercial purposes.  

 

Site Members

The only personal information you as a sponsorship opportunity provide which the other site members will have access to is your preferred contact information should a member access it with further interest in your sponsorship opportunity.  We do not give this information out to those simply visiting the site and browsing opportunities unless they are a registered member, and we do not give your contact information out to other sponsorship opportunity representatives - only registered sponsors who indicate interest in contacting you.

 

Sponsorship searches

Upon registration and profile submission on the part of a sponsorship opportunity, you indicate your interest in being put into contact with sponsors, or anyone registered on the Sponsorpark website with sponsorship interests.  Your personal information can be used to match you with those registered parties whose search query matches your profile.  Registered members are held responsible under this Privacy Policy for using contact information strictly for the purpose of contacting sponsorship opportunities with the interest of sponsorship inquiries and nothing further.  However, upon sponsorship matching, your contact and personal information is disclosed to registered sponsors, and at this point SponsorPark does not control the Privacy Policies of third parties and you are subject to the Privacy Policies of those third parties where applicable.  Especially upon contact we encourage you to ask questions to these members to stay in control of the privacy of your personal information.

 

Other business entities

Upon a carefully considered decision to merge with or be acquired by another business entity, then the information previously listed will be available to them as well.  We will require that the new business entity comply with this privacy policy as it pertains to protection of your personal information.  If your personal information will be handled any differently, there will be notice offered prior to that change.

Changing Account Information, or Terminating Membership

SponsorPark allows you at any time to change or edit any of your profile or personal information at your discretion.  We do recommend that if your contact information has changed in any way to act quickly so as not to miss out on any sponsorship connections.  Simply log in to your account and make any necessary changes.  Please note that upon any change in information reasonable time must be allowed for changes to post, and SponsorPark does reserve the right to take down any offensive, potentially illegal material, or any material that violates the Privacy Policy or Terms of Use, although SponsorPark is in no way obligated to do so.

You may terminate your membership at any time; it will terminate by default if you simply allow your current package to expire without renewing membership with a new package.  If you choose an early termination, you will need to contact us for termination, although to withdraw your membership before package expiration will not allow for any refunds, nor will there be a penalty fee.  You agree to allow a reasonable amount of time for SponsorPark to remove your account from public view.  Aside from the personal information that we maintain as an archived copy, we will take down your profile from our database, and any other public or searchable information such as a profile or your contact information that you wish to terminate; all of which will be enforced at the completion of your package agreement or sooner if you so choose.  The portions from your searchable profile and the contact information that was provided to registered sponsors who might have previously reviewed your profile may have been retained in their own files or databases.  We are not responsible for the retention, use or privacy or profiles in these instances.  
 

Please note that we do retain personal information from closed accounts (as an archived copy only, not viewable on the internet) to comply with law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our SponsorPark user agreement, and take other actions otherwise permitted by law.
