Contact: first and last name, business name (if applicable), city/state and email address.
Purpose: registration, identification, basic location, company mailings, and administration purposes.
Financial: collected by PayPal if applicable.

Demographic: how did you hear about us, favorite sport(s), etc.
Purpose: to let us know how you heard about UsedSports.com and to better customize our users interests and preferences.
UsedSports.com uses PayPal to bill users for any goods or services if applicable. PayPal does not share, or use personal information for any secondary purposes. We may share information with our advertisers and/or partners, but this is in no way linked to any personal information that can or will identify our users.
UsedSports.com sends all new members a welcome email to confirm the correct email address and provide your chosen username and password. Registered users will occasionally receive information on special deals, services, products, and other company news.
Cookies are a piece of data stored on your hard drive containing information about you. Cookies are stored on your computer only and are in no way linked to any personal information while on our Site. For example, by using cookies on our Site, you would not have to log in a password more than once. If you reject the cookie, you may still use our Site, but you will have to log in repeatedly.
Public Communication Venues
UsedSports.com may provide chat rooms, forums, message boards, news groups or other public communication venues. Users should know that personal information submitted in these types of communication venues can be read, collected and/or used by others. If you disclose any personal information in these areas, it becomes public information. UsedSports.com will not be responsible or held accountable for such actions. Please exercise caution when deciding to disclose any personal information in areas such as these.
Buyer and Seller Information
To enable interaction between all UsedSports.com registered users, limited access is allowed to other users contact information. This gives the appropriate information to the buyer and seller in order to complete a successful transaction.
UsedSports.com can disclose information about you to law enforcement, other government officials and/or other third parties to enforce the law (for any illegal or suspected unlawful acts) as we believe necessary. UsedSports.com reserves the right to communicate any information about you to other users and/or law enforcement as we determine necessary to maintain the high level of trust and safety within our Site.
UsedSports.com uses industry standard firewalls and Secure Socket Layers to protect the confidentiality of your personal information. To provide our users with an additional blanket of security, we also use many other discrete security techniques to protect your data from unauthorized access. When a user enters sensitive information (such as a credit card number), the information is encrypted and protected with encryption software. Users will know they are on a secure page when the lock icon on the bottom of their web browser (such as Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, etc.) becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked when you are just browsing.
Change of Personal Information
UsedSports.com allows its users to correct or update your personal information. This can be done by logging into My Account and clicking on Personal Information.
This allows our users to email specific ads to people they feel would be interested. If you use our referral service to tell a friend, we ask for your friends name and email address. We will send your friend a one time email inviting them to check out the ad with a link specifically to that ad. UsedSports.com does not store this information. We do not allow this feature to be used for spamming. Only send emails to people you know would be interested in the item. If you use this service to advertise your item for sale and recipient complaints are received, your account will be suspended.
