This privacy statement is applicable to chicagoblackhawks.com and all its affiliates. The Chicago Blackhawks' policy is to respect and protect the privacy of our users.
The Chicago Blackhawks do not collect personally identifiable information about individuals except when such individuals specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis. For example, such personally identifiable information may be gathered from a contest or sweepstakes registration, the registration process for subscription sites or services and in connection with content submissions, community postings (e.g., chat and bulletin boards), suggestions, voting/polling activities and transactional areas.
Personally identifiable information on individual users will not be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties without the approval of the user at the time of collection. At such points of collection, the user will have the opportunity to indicate whether he or she would like to "opt out" of receiving promotional and/or marketing information about other products, services and offerings from the Chicago Blackhawks and/or any third parties. Further, notwithstanding any opt out of promotional information by the user, the Chicago Blackhawks reserves the right to contact a subscriber regarding account status, changes to the subscriber agreement and other matters relevant to the underlying service and/or the information collected.
The Chicago Blackhawks 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 to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) the Chicago Blackhawks' rights or property, other Chicago Blackhawks users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. The Chicago Blackhawks may disclose user information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
Additionally, users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information (e.g., user name, e-mail address) on the bulletin boards or in the chat areas of the Chicago Blackhawks' sites, that information, along with any substantive information disclosed in the user's communication, can be collected and correlated and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of the Chicago Blackhawks.
Upon request, the Chicago Blackhawks will allow any user to "opt out" of further promotional contacts at any time. Additionally upon request, the Chicago Blackhawks will use reasonable efforts to allow users to update/correct personal information previously submitted which the user states is erroneous to the extent such activities will not compromise privacy or security interests. Also, upon a user's request, the Chicago Blackhawks will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally delete the user and his or her personal information from its database; however, it may be impossible to delete a user's entry without some residual information because of backups and records of deletions.
The foregoing policies are effective as of October 2000. The Chicago Blackhawks reserves the right to change this policy at any time by notifying users of the existence of a new privacy statement. This statement and the policies outlined herein are not intended to and do not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of any party.
Children's Privacy Statement (users under 13 years old)
In general, we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 via the Web site, and we use age screening mechanisms to help prevent children from posting data on the Web site, such as in our message boards.
From time to time, we may offer children the opportunity to enter promotions or contests via the Web site. In each case, the child will be asked only to provide an email address, as well as his or her parent's email address. Upon receipt of the information, we will send an email to the parent indicating that the child has registered, providing information on the program and giving instruction on how the parent can remove the child from the contest. We will then use the information only to notify the contest winners and their parents that they have won. We require that the winner's parent provide us with all information needed to award the prize. Information collected during the contest will not be used or stored after the contest ends, other than as needed for legal requirements in connection with the promotion. In no event will the Chicago Blackhawks collect any information from children in connection with a promotion other than email address and parent's email address. In no event will Chicago Blackhawks use the information other than for purposes of awarding contest prizes.
If you have questions or concerns regarding this Web site's privacy statement, you should first contact the company at 312-455-7000.
