The policies below are applicable to the above-named online service (the "Service") produced and maintained by ESPN/Starwave Partners d/b/a ESPN Internet Ventures ("EIV").
EIV collects personally identifying information only during (i) contest or sweepstakes registration and (ii) subscription registration. In addition, information is collected in certain portions of the Service in which guests specifically and knowingly provide such information along with content submissions, community postings (i.e., chat or bulletin boards), suggestions, or voting. EIV may use such information for its internal purposes, including but not limited to editorial and feedback purposes. In the event EIV plans to publicly post any such information on a site, guests are provided prior notification of such posting.
Information submitted at the time of registration or submission may be used for marketing and promotional purposes by EIV and may be shared with companies that have been pre-screened by EIV. If a guest objects to such use for any reason, he/she may stop that use -- either by e-mail request or by modifying his/her registration information online.
Cookies help make EIV better, by showing how and when guests use the site. Many content improvements and updates are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies.
oA cookie lets the Service remember that you've registered, which allows us to speed up your future activities at our sites.
oSimilarly, the ESPN Store uses a temporary cookie to track which products you've selected while shopping. The cookie expires once you're done shopping. Letting it do the record-keeping saves you the trouble of entering information over and over again during a single visit. If you decline this cookie, you may have difficulty ordering your selections.
The cookie itself does not contain any personally identifying information although it may enable EIV to relate a user's use of the Service to personally identifying information that has previously been submitted by the user, if any.
You may occasionally get cookies from our advertisers. These cookies are sent from third-party computers and are subject to such third parties' policies.
