Privacy Policy

Introduction

Hollywood Curling takes your personal privacy seriously. We have adopted the following online privacy policy on November 23, 2018. This policy applies to your interactions with us at our main web site (https://www.hollywoodcurling.org) as well as any third party platforms or social media sites where we have a web presence.

Information We Collect

Personally Identifiable Information

We do not collect personally identifiable information from you unless you provide it to us voluntarily, such as by registering for an event, signing up for our mailing list, making a donation, becoming a member, or interacting with us on social media.

If you register for an event (whether through hollywoodcurling.org, Eventbrite, Facebook, Goldstar, or any other platform), we require your full name, email address, and payment information. This information will be used to send you event confirmations or e-tickets, and to provide important updates about the specific event you registered for. If you provide additional information (such as age, phone number, or mailing address), we may use this information to contact you about the event or for event planning purposes. We may also add you to our mailing list or otherwise use your information for marketing purposes, unless you opt out as described below.

If you sign up for our mailing list, we require your email address. This information will be used to send you updates about Hollywood Curling, including about upcoming events or promotions, unless you opt out as described below.

If you make a donation, we require your full name, email address, and payment information. This information will be used to process your donation and send you a receipt or confirmation. We may also add your information to our mailing list, to provide updates about our organization, promotions, and to solicit future donations, unless you opt out as described below.

If you become a Hollywood Curling member, we require your full name, email address, mailing address, phone number, and payment information. This information will be used to process your membership and send you important member updates. We may also add you to our mailing list or otherwise use your information for marketing purposes (including members-only events and promotions), unless you opt out as described below. If you become a member, we may share your personally identifiable information with the Mountain Pacific Curling Association (MoPac) and the United States Curling Association (USCA), in order for them to process your regional and national curling association memberships. Your information will be used according to their respective privacy policies. For information about MoPac’s privacy policy, you may contact them at president@mopacca.org. For information about USCA’s privacy policy, you may visit https://www.teamusa.org/usa-curling/about-us/privacy-policy.

If you interact with Hollywood Curling on social media, we may collect your name, username, and other publicly accessible information on your social media profiles. We may use this information for targeted advertising. We will not directly contact you unless you explicitly contact us first, or otherwise opt in to receiving communications from us as described elsewhere in this privacy policy.

Web Analytics

Hollywood Curling uses first- and third-party analytics and tracking software to monitor user engagement with our web site and with our web presence on other platforms. We use these services to measure the number of visitors to our site and to provide more applicable services to our visitors, as well as for cross-platform advertising and marketing.

We attempt to choose analytics partners that respect your privacy preferences, but ultimately we are not responsible for the information that third parties may collect from you or how they use that information. We currently use Google Analytics and Facebook to analyze usage on our site. We encourage you to read their respective privacy policies (Google: https://policies.google.com/privacy; Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/privacy/explanation). If you do not wish for Google or Facebook to collect data about your site usage, we suggest that you activate the “do not track” feature in your web browser, or install a browser plugin to block such activity.

We respect the “do not track” feature in your web browser and will not track you if you have activated this feature. We also make no attempt to interfere with ad blockers/content blockers. If you notice a technical issue or find that we are not respecting the “do not track” feature, please contact us immediately at info@hollywoodcurling.org and we will work to resolve the problem.
