You can use the settings on your web browser to refuse all cookies or to alert you when a cookie is being sent. Please note that some features of the Tradesports website may not work properly if cookies are not being accepted.


HTML 5 Web Storage:

The data is not included with every server request, but used ONLY when asked for. It is also possible to store large amounts of data, without affecting the website's performance.


The data is stored in name/value pairs, and a web page can only access data stored by itself. Unlike cookies, the storage limit is far larger (at least 5MB) and information is never transferred to the server.

HOW LONG USER INFORMATION IS KEPT


Tradesports generally keeps user data on the Tradesports servers or in the Tradesports archives for as long as Tradesports reasonably needs it. Tradesports may alter this practice according to changing requirements. For example, Tradesports may delete some data if needed to free up storage space. Tradesports may keep other data for longer periods if applicable law requires it. In addition, information posted in a public forum could stay in the public domain indefinitely.

DATA SECURITY


Tradesports uses appropriate and commercially reasonable physical, managerial and technical procedures to safeguard and secure all information we collect online. We cannot however ensure or guarantee the absolute security of any information collected by Tradesports and any information you provide is done so at your own risk. Therefore, although Tradesports believes the measures implemented by it reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved, Tradesports does not promise or guarantee, and you should not expect, that your Personal Information or private communications will remain private.


If you believe your username or password has been stolen, you are required to notify Tradesports so that necessary measures can be taken immediately.

DO NOT TRACK


Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in their web browsers, which allows them to opt out of tracking by websites and online services. When a user activates DNT, the browser sends a message requesting that the website or online service not track the user. At the present time, standard DNT technology is not yet finalized and not all browsers support DNT; therefore, Tradesports does not recognize DNT signals. Instead, information collection and disclosure practices and the choices that Tradesports provides to users will continue to operate as described in this Privacy Policy, whether or not a DNT signal is received. For more information about DNT, see: http://donottrack.us/.
