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, the 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 content in their email. 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. Examples of such information may include, but are not limited to email address, first name and last name, dates of birth, and mailing address.

Cal North Online does not require visitors to register in order to use this website. However, users have the option to subscribe to Cal North email distribution lists. The content of Cal North’s email is appropriate for all ages. In addition, users may have the opportunity to subscribe to additional email content 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. Users may from 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. In addition to emailing content to subscribers, we may send a “welcome email” 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.

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.
