TeamSportsInfo.com (TSIC) is committed to provide a superior Internet resource for
team sports administrators, coaches, participants and their families. In doing so,
we will be asking you to supply important demographic information when you register
as a player or a team, as well as credit card information if you choose to shop
outline the steps we have taken to maintain a secure environment.
Information We Collect and Display
When you register with TSIC you will be asked to provide your role within the sports
organization i.e. league or club commissioner, coach, or player, and will then be
asked to select a user ID and password. These features will restrict the viewing
of information to what is pertinent for that individual. Players and their parents
will login under the player’s user ID and password. In order for a player to register,
names, addresses, phone numbers, birth dates, email addresses, physician and emergency
contacts will be collected. This information can be entered online or via a paper
mail-in or walk-in form. Regardless of which method a player uses to register, that
information will be entered into the TSIC Internet database for clubs and leagues
to use to create teams and schedules. When administrators register teams with a
league in order to schedule the season’s games, the registration information will
include names, addresses, phone numbers, birth dates, and email addresses of players
and their coaches. Once you have registered with TSIC, the information you have
provided will be maintained in a database and will not have to be reentered during
subsequent playing seasons. This information can be edited anytime by the user either
- Access Privilege
The ability to access player or team information on the TSIC web site is limited
to those individuals with a user ID and password. The level of information displayed
to a particular user is determined by his/her role within the team sports organization.
The coach and players/parents of a particular team will be able to view their entire
team roster with corresponding player addresses, phone numbers, and birth dates.
They will be able to access the rosters and schedules of other teams but will NOT
be provided the addresses, phone number and birth dates for players on other teams.
It is critical that parents and players do not release their user ID and password
information to any other individuals to protect the privacy of their fellow team
A club administrator will have access to all the registration information of all
of his club’s players and will be responsible for building team rosters from the
player registration database. The club’s teams will be submitted to the league administrator
for the subsequent creation of division schedules and field assignments. The player’s
registration information in whole or in part will be provided to the league officials.
The club and league administrators’ access is also protected by a user ID and password.
No other individuals except a limited number of TSIC employees who are responsible
for database operations will have access to the specific registration information
provided by players and parents.
- Traffic Security
In order to prevent hackers from illegally intercepting an individual’s user ID
and password or other information being transferred between the TeamsSportsInfo.com
server and the user’s browser, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology is
utilized. This is a standard security measure used to make Internet traffic unreadable
to anyone but the requesting user.
- Credit card transactions
Credit card transaction information is available only as long as it takes to complete
a transaction with the financial institution. There is no long-term storage of this
information. Consequently, it will need to be reentered for each transaction.
Cookies are data files transferred to a user’s computer from a web site that can
record specific user information. This information is supplied by the user and may
include user ID, password, purchasing or site preferences. TeamSportsInfo.com will
only utilize cookies to obtain user ID information in order to eliminate the need
for you to enter this each time you log on. TSIC, however, will not use a cookie
to record your TSIC password. You will need to reenter this each time you use the
system. This prevents someone from using your computer and gaining access to TSIC
through your previously remembered user ID and password. TSIC cannot control the
option to disable the receipt of cookies, thus eliminating the collection of the
specific information requested. Browsers are initially set to receive them, however,
and a user must actively select not to accept them. In doing so however, the user
needs to be aware that there may be portions of the web site that will not display
or function correctly.
- Message Board
The TSIC message board is available to administrators, coaches, and players to report
any information pertinent to the organization and its functions. Any personal information
that you voluntarily disclose in this manner is not secure and this practice is
strongly discouraged. In addition, TSIC cannot guarantee that unsolicited information
not relevant to the organization will not be displayed by another user. Access to
the message board is restricted however to those individuals registered with TSIC
and the recipients of their messages is limited by the role they play within the
organization. For example, a player can write to his/her coach but not to fellow
players. A coach can write only to their own players as well as to the league and
club administrators. The league and club administrators can communicate with all
individuals within the organization
Notice to Parents and Children
TSIC is in business to provide an environment that enables youth and amateur recreational
leagues and clubs to provide you with complete and timely information, and to free
them of their previously cumbersome administrative tasks. Our web site is geared
to children, parents and coaches for the easy retrieval of team rosters, schedules,
standings and field assignment/directions. A message board is available for up-to-date
schedule changes or late-breaking announcements.
We encourage all users who are children to visit the site with their parent’s permission.
At that time we ask all parents navigate the site with their children to discuss
the restrictions they require regarding submitting any personal information online.
We strongly encourage all parents to complete the registration form or to oversee
this process with their children. The TSIC marketplace can also be a fun site to
view for all users, but parents should discuss this online shopping function with
their children before they access the site independently. TSIC has links to other
web sites and we cannot control the content of those sites. Parental supervision
in accessing links is also recommended. The retrieval of information regarding a
child’s team should be a fun and independent experience for many children, but we
feel it is crucial for a parent to always be aware of a child’s internet activities.
Please let us know if you have any further suggestions regarding this important
Use of Information
- TSIC Mailings/Phone contact
Coaches, club and league administrators, and fellow players and their parents will
have access to your addresses (home and email) and phone numbers and may contact
you via these routes. In addition, TSIC may contact you regarding sports-related
contests, tournaments, or other promotions. TSIC will not provide addresses, email
or phone lists to advertisers or vendors. Be aware that we cannot control an individual
club’s or league’s decision to release this information.
- Aggregate information
Information from multiple users may be collected without the identification of the
individual user information in the report. Examples of this type of aggregate information
include click stream data (how often users clicked on a banner advertisement for
instance), purchasing preferences, shopping page preferences, and link selections.
This information will be collected and used by TSIC to evaluate the success of our
product meeting your needs. It will also be made available to advertisers who will
evaluate their advertising strategy. TSIC will not disclose any individual user’s
information to outside parties unless required by law.
