The South Carolina Bandits Organization has created this Privacy Statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this web site: SC Bandits™. This Privacy Statement specifically addresses the following.
If you have any questions about this Privacy Statement, the practices of this web site, your dealings with this web site, or feel we have missed your information, you can contact:
WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
When you visit the SCBandits.org™ website, we may collect from you, through voluntary dialogs, automated monitoring processes and the review of web site server log files, information about you. SCBandits.org™ refers to this information collectively for all of its users as 'User Information'. As discussed in more detail below, User Information can take two forms: (1) 'Personally Identifiable Information' which is information about a user from which a user's identity can be determined; and (2) 'Non-Personally Identifiable Information' which is information about a user from which a user's identity cannot be determined. In some instances, SCBandits.org™ receives User Information from its business partners. In such instances, SCBandits.org™ treats such User Information as if it was directly collected or entered on the SCBandits.org™ web site.
Personally Identifiable Information
We do not, through the SCBandits.org™ web site, collect Personally Identifiable Information about you without your knowledge and voluntary action. Your Personally Identifiable Information is collected mainly through the optional user registration process for the SCBandits.org™ web site. The information collected through the registration process includes username, name (first and last), company name, company address, phone number, fax number and e-mail address. SCBandits.org™ does not control the acts of its users. You should be aware that if you disclose any User Information on a bulletin board or in a chat room, guest book or other open forum that is hosted by SCBandits.org™, others may collect that information and use it to send you unsolicited e-mail from outside SCBandits.org™, or for other purposes. In addition, the SCBandits.org™ web site provides its registered users with the ability to develop custom surveys/polls which are hosted through SCBandits.org™. Any User Information you provide in response to any surveys/polls other than those developed by SCBandits.org™ will be provided to the developer of such survey/poll without being subject to this Privacy Statement. Where SCBandits.org™ is the developer of a survey/poll the User Information you provide in response to such survey/poll will be subject to this Privacy Statement. In the event that you encounter any SCBandits.org™ user who is improperly collecting or using information about you or other users, please contact us at the address set forth at the top of this Privacy Statement.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Non-Personally Identifiable Information includes, but is not limited to, information we automatically collect on your use and/or actions on our web site (e.g., user traffic patterns, page views on the web site, click-through rates, search terms that users enter into our search utility). In addition, when a visitor arrives at our site, we collect the IP address, operating system and browser software used. An IP address (which is not the same as an e-mail address) can tell us the user's internet service provider and, based on that, can suggest the geographic location of the connection. SCBandits.org™ recognizes that certain User Information of a key demographic nature (e.g., race, age, gender, national origin, income), while Non-Personally Identifiable Information, is still of a sensitive nature to users. As a general matter, SCBandits.org™ does not collect such information about you through the SCBandits.org™ web site. However, in recognition of the sensitive nature of such information, in the event SCBandits.org™ comes in to possession of such information, whether through your voluntary submission of such information in response to a special feature on the SCBandits.org™ web site or by receiving such information from any of our business partners, such information shall, when coupled with any of your Personally Identifiable Information, itself be deemed to be Personally Identifiable Information and treated by SCBandits.org™ as such.
