At California Youth Soccer Association – Cal North Online (calnorth.org), our goal is to provide a safe, fun and informative online experience for all of the children and adults who makeup Cal North membership. We want you to understand and feel comfortable with this site's process of gathering information from users, and we want you to know exactly how that information is used and what your rights are with regards to all of the information collected.

This Privacy Statement is intended to educate parents and youngsters about the steps they can take to safeguard their privacy when visiting Cal North Online or any of the other exciting websites that have links to and from Cal North Online. We also hope that the information presented here demonstrates our total commitment to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 ("COPPA"). In doing so, the following discloses our information collection and dissemination practices for this website: calnorth.org.

If you have any concern that Cal North Online is not abiding by its posted privacy policy, you should e-mail the site administrator, Emanuel Lusca, at elusca@calnorth.org  or use the contact information below:

Information Collection and Use
Cal North Online collects information from our users at several different points, and is the sole owner of the data collected on the website. In each case, only information that is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity at hand will be sought. For example, Cal North Online will not ask children or any requester for their home mailing address in order to receive an e-mailed newsletter. We will never condition a child's participation in an online activity on the disclosure of information that is beyond what is reasonably necessary for Cal North Online to conduct the applicable activity.

E-Newsletter Subscriptions
Cal North Online does not require visitors to register in order to use this website. However, users have the option to subscribe to receive free E-Newsletters. The content of Cal North's E-Newsletters is appropriate for all ages. In addition, users may have the opportunity to subscribe to additional newsletters through linked sites. We encourage parents to read and become familiar with the privacy policies and information collection practices of all other sites that their children enter. To subscribe to our E-Newsletters, a user is asked to give their name and e-mail address. Users may time to time also have the opportunity, but are not required, to sign up to receive special promotions from advertisers that may be of interest to Cal North members. Information collected to distribute Cal North Online's E-Newsletters may be transferred, disclosed or otherwise shared with third parties who handle the technical preparation and delivery of the newsletter. These third parties will not use the information for any other purposes and have agreed to keep all such information confidential. In addition to e-mailing newsletters to subscribers, we may send a "welcoming e-mail" to first-time visitors, and occasional updates to keep users current on the site-specific services, event calendars, local competition news, and other points of interest including periodic special offers from Cal North Online. Our intent in collecting information from users is to provide the most personalized and rewarding online experience possible.

Surveys
From time to time, Cal North Online conducts user surveys on a variety of youth soccer-related topics. Our website will advise users that participation in these surveys is completely voluntary, and there is no requirement to disclose any personally identifiable information. All surveys conducted through this site will be used as research for the purposes of assessing and improving user satisfaction, and/or for determining the user's opinion on a particular issue relating to Cal North Soccer or the sport of soccer generally. Survey information collected may be shared with third parties in an aggregated manner for the purposes of showing sponsors of Cal North Soccer and people in the soccer community what the opinions of our members are on particular subjects. However, the information collected in these surveys will not be used for commercial solicitation purposes without the express consent of users completing the survey. Each survey will give users the choice to "opt-in" to receiving messages from advertisers or sponsors by checking a box on the appropriate page.

Information Sharing
Cal North Soccer Online may accumulate and store aggregated demographic information about its users. This information is not linked or otherwise traceable to any identifiable personal information, and is used solely to advise website partners and advertisers of the site's general audience characteristics and track responses to online programs and activities.

Each of these partners has agreed to maintain the confidentiality, security and integrity of the information provided to them. In all cases where personal information is disclosed to a third party, parents have the right to say "no" to the sharing of such information.
