It is always your choice whether to provide personal information through our website. Any personal information you provide will be treated with care, and subject to this policy, will not be used or disclosed in ways to which you have not consented.

This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their 'Personally Identifiable Information' (PII) is being used online. PII, as used in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website. Also, you may opt-out of certain uses and disclosures of your personal information, as explained in this policy.

YOUR CONSENT

By using our website, you signify your consent to our collection, use and disclosure of your personal information in accordance with this policy to help you with your shopping experience. If you do not agree to the terms of this privacy policy, you may exit our website at any time.

SECURITY AND HOW WE PROTECT VISITOR INFORMATION?

The security of your personal information is extremely important to us! Our website and server is scanned on a regular basis for security holes and known vulnerabilities in order to make your visit to our site as safe as possible. Our website also performs regular Malware Scanning. Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. When you enter sensitive information, such as a credit card number on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Technology.

Our 256 Bit Encryption SSL Certificate can be found at the bottom of our site in the customer service section. We implement a variety of security measures when a user places an order, submits, or accesses their account information to maintain the safety of your personal information. All transactions are processed through a payment gateway provider and are not stored or processed on our servers. However, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. If you have any questions about security on our website, please contact us.

INFORMATION AUTOMATICALLY COLLECTED

We may use the information we collect from you when you register, make a purchase, sign up for our newsletter, respond to a survey or marketing communication, surf the website, or use certain other site features in the following ways.

Non-Identifiable Information: Like many other websites on the net, the website automatically collects certain non-identifiable information regarding website users, such as the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer, the IP address of your Internet Service Provider, the date and time you access the website, the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to the website, the operating system you are using, the sections of the website you visit, the website pages read and images viewed and the content you download from the website. This non-identifiable information is used for website and system administration purposes and to improve the website.

Cookies enhance the convenience and use of the website. For instance, we use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart. Another example, the information provided through cookies is used to recognize you as a previous user of the website, so you do not have to enter your personal information every time, offer personalized web page content and information for your use, track your activity at the website to respond to your needs and otherwise facilitate your website experience. You may choose to decline cookies if your browser permits, but doing so may affect your use of the website and your ability to access certain features of the website or engage in transactions through the website.

OTHER PRIVACY LAWS

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act): We sell products intended for purchase by adults that are of age 18 or older. If you make a purchase with us, you are representing that you are an adult. When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation's consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online. We will not knowingly collect any personal information from and do not specifically market to children under 13. If any parent, guardian or other responsible adult becomes aware that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, please contact us at privacy@lnjsports.com. If we become aware that personal information from a child under 13 has been collected without such child's parent or guardian's consent, we will use all reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database.

California Online Privacy Protection Act: CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. - See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

  • Users can visit our site anonymously
  • We will add a link to our Privacy Policy on our home page footer, or as a minimum on the first significant page after entering our website.
  • Our Privacy Policy link includes the word 'Privacy', and can be easily be found on the page specified above.
  • Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes by viewing our Privacy Policy Page.
  • Users are able to change their personal information by emailing us, by calling us, or by logging in to their account.

How does our site handle do not track signals? We do not honor (DNT) headers.

Does our site allow third party behavioral tracking? It's also important to note that we allow third party behavioral tracking.

Fair Information Practices: The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

  • We will notify the users via email within 1 business day.
  • We will notify the users via in site notification within 1 business day.

We also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
