What are the privacy policies of this website?

The Internet, Privacy, and NCAA Publishing

The Internet contains a wealth of information; unfortunately, it may also contain personal details about you that you don't want everyone to know. For example, your real name (lots of people on the Internet use aliases, alter egos, or nicknames), street address, phone number, or email address. When you go online, websites you visit may be gathering information about you without your knowledge. At NCAA Publishing strives to help our customers protect their privacy while using our services.

NCAA Publishing's Privacy Policy

NCAA Publishing's privacy policy is to respect and protect the privacy of our users. This policy statement tells you how we collect information from you and how we use it. Using the Internet should be a fun experience, and we want to help you make it so.

The information you provide is not shared among the NCAA Network websites, as it is our goal to make your visits to our website easy and enjoyable. Also, be assured that the NCAA will not disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent. The NCAA may disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally)the NCAA's rights or property, other users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. NCAA Publishing may disclose user information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.

There are cases where NCAA Publishing may ask you for personal information such as your name, address, and email address. For example, we request personal information when you place orders or for services that require registration or subscription. NCAA Publishing needs to collect this information for fulfilling orders as well as federal, state, and local laws, and/or editorial and feedback solicitation purposes.

In case you change your mind or some personal information changes (such as your ZIP code), we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update, or remove the personal data you give us. You can do this by modifying your profile on main page of the NCAA publishing home page.

Use of IP Addresses

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.

NCAA Publishing collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to audit the use of our site. When guests request pages from Our NCAA Network sites, our servers log the guests' IP addresses. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a user's session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our house rules or terms of service or to protect our service, site, customers, or others.

We use the information from cookies to provide services better tailored to our users needs. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, note that some parts of the our service will not function properly or may be considerably slower if you refuse cookies.

Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online -for example, via message boards or chat - that information can be collected and used by people you don't know. While we strive to protect users' personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online, and you do so at your own risk.

Our policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond our control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.

We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we can't ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. When credit card information is transmitted we use industry standard,SSL (secure socket layer) encryption.
