What Personal Information About Customers Does Athlon Sports Gather?
The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your shopping experience at athlonsports.com. Here are the types of information we gather.
Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future shopping for you, improving our stores, and communicating with you.
Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use \"cookies,\" and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses our site.
E-mail Communications: In addition to our general newsletter offering, we may periodically ask you if you would like to receive information via email about specific teams, sports or products. You will only receive these communications if you have opted into one of our newsletter lists. You can manage your opt in status by visiting My Account.
What About Cookies?
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide features such as personalized greetings, affiliate tracking and storage of items in your Shopping Cart between visits.
The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, cookies allow you to take full advantage of some of athlonsports.com's best features, and we recommend that you leave them turned on.
Does Athlon Sports Share the Information It Receives?
Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We do not share customer information to any third-party or business partner except as aggregated grouping for purposes of identifying key demographics.
How Secure Is Information About Me?
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.
We reveal only the first and last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer. Use the \"Logout\" button at the top of the page.
Athlon Sports does not sell products for purchase by children. We sell products for purchase by adults. If you are under 18, you may use athlonsports.com only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.
