SportsNet's Security Measures
The Information SportsNet Collects and How It Is Used
Collection of Personally Identifiable Information
Simply stated, SportsNet does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If we learn that we have collected personal information on a child under the age of 13, we will delete that data from our systems. SportsNet encourages parents and guardians to go online with their children and suggests the following to help make a child's online experience safer:
* Teach children never to give personal information (such as name, address, phone number, school, etc.) unless supervised by a parent or responsible adult.
* Know the sites your children are visiting and which sites are appropriate.
* Look for website privacy policies. Know how your child's information is treated.
Use of Personally Identifiable Information
Generally, the only people who have access to your personally identifiable information are SportsNet employees and these employees may use this personally identifiable information to take actions such as:
* Help provide you with the ability to create personal profile areas;
* Provide customer feedback, service and support;
* Support and run contests, sweepstakes or other marketing or promotional activities on the comcastsportsnet.com Website;
* Conduct questionnaires and surveys in order to provide better products and services to our customers;
* To understand more about you, so we can personalize newsletters and websites to your preferences;
* To enhance your web browsing experience and help personalize the comcastsportsnet.com Website for your viewing preferences;
* To allow you to forward information to another individual such as a friend or co-worker. SportsNet does not store the personal information about the third party to whom you forward such information; we only collect the information for the sole purpose of sending a one-time email. If you choose to use our referral service to inform a colleague or friend, we will only ask for a contact name and email address; and
* To meet contractual obligations.

Co-Branded Offers. In arranging to have marketing and promotional information of certain companies or businesses with whom SportsNet may have formed a strategic alliance ('Affiliated Companies'), we may disclose to the Affiliated Companies your personally identifiable information, including information such as your address, billing information, telephone number and credit card information. If you do not want to us to disclose your personally identifiable information to the Affiliated Companies, please refer to the Opt-Out Policy below.
Third-Party Offers. In arranging to have marketing and promotional information of third-party companies that we think might be of interest to you, we may disclose your personal information, including information such as your address, billing information, telephone number and credit card information to nonaffiliated third parties not controlled by SportsNet.

On an aggregate basis only, we collect comprehensive demographic information and data, and other non-identifying information about users of the comcastsportsnet.com Website. SportsNet will never disclose any personally identifiable information as part of this aggregate information but we may lend, sell, share or otherwise disclose aggregate information with others so we can perform research and provide the results to third parties, enhance and market the comcastsportsnet.com Website, and conduct accounting and process record keeping functions.
Cookies and IP Address Information
Additionally, we may use IP address information to count and track aggregate visits to the comcastsportsnet.com Website, to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer the comcastsportsnet.com Website. SportsNet does not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable so while a particular user's session can be tracked, the user remains completely anonymous.
We may include links to other websites we think may be of interest to you or operated by our business partners, affiliates, advertisers and others. These third parties have separate data collection and privacy practices independent from ours, and SportsNet cannot be responsible for their policies or activities. Please contact those third parties directly if you have questions about their privacy policies.
Accessing and Updating Information
To access or update the personally identifiable information that SportsNet may have, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your request. Please include your email address and indicate the nature of your request or the information you wish to change. In addition, you may delete the cookie stored on your computer, which will cause our system to perceive you as a new user with no known user data. You may also set your browser to reject cookies, but doing so may prevent you from using some of our services. There may be certain instances when SportsNet may not be able to respond, such as when access would violate the privacy of another individual, when access is prohibited by law, or when the personally identifiable information has been lawfully obtained from third party sources.

In addition, when we contact you via email, we may include instructions to unsubscribe from future emails if you so choose.
Though we will make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personally identifiable information when required by law or if we have a good-faith belief the action is necessary to comply with a pending judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on SportsNet or to protect our rights or the rights of others, to fight fraud, identity theft, to ensure the integrity and operation of our business and systems, or to protect the rights, property or safety of SportsNet, its employees, members or others.
