Privacy Statement

The Thornapple Valley Baseball League(TVBL) Privacy Policy has been written to answer questions you might have about online privacy. As a youth organization, we are very concerned about privacy and go to extraordinary measures to safeguard any personal information we may collect about you or your children. 
Advice to Children and Parents
We strongly advise children to get their parent's or guardian's permission before submitting any kind of personal data over the Internet. We urge parents to be very clear with their children regarding the danger of giving personal information to anyone (online or in person) they don't know. We also encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate in the activities offered on the sites they visit.

What personal information do we collect?
At TVBL, we don't collect personal information about you or your children online (name, address, e-mail, and so on) unless you provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly. 

Do we disclose it?
TVBL does not sell, loan, exchange, or make available in any way the names, addresses, or any other contact or demographic information concerning our volunteers or players.

How do we use it?
Any information gathered on this website is for the express use of TVBL and will be used for the sole purpose of furthering the mission of TVBL. 

No information collected on this website from children under 13 years of age is used for any marketing or promotional purposes whatsoever, either inside or outside TVBL, except as explicitly stated during registration for contests. In that case, the information collected is used only for the specific contest and is not saved in any form after the end of the contest.

Contests and Submissions
We sometimes offer contests, games, and promotions; or invite you to submit stories, comments, or questions to certain areas of our site. On these occasions, we may ask you to voluntarily submit your e-mail address along with your contest entry or submission so that we can notify you if you are a winner, or to respond to (or ask) questions. 

If you are under the age of 13 years, you must provide us with your parent's or legal guardian's e-mail address and obtain permission from your parent or legal guardian before collecting your prize. Your parent or guardian will then be notified that you have entered a TVBL contest. We will send them an e-mail message giving them an opportunity to limit your participation if they wish.

Cookies -- What are they?
Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to an individual's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies make Internet surfing easier for you by saving your passwords and preferences while you're at a site. The use of cookies is an industry standard -- you'll find that they are used by most major websites. By showing how and when visitors use the site, cookies can also help website developers see which areas are popular and which are not. 

Does the TVBL website use cookies? 
No. The TVBL website does NOT use cookies of any kind (except, of course, chocolate chip ones for our webmaster). If cookie technology is ever used on the TVBL, you will have an on-screen option allowing you to make a choice about using a cookie to store page or site-specific information on your hard drive.

Questions or Concerns?
We may modify these policies from time to time to better address your concerns or to make other additions, deletions or changes that TVBL determines to be appropriate.
