As stated above, the Sites do not knowingly solicit any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 18. Please review Paragraph 14 (Note to Parents), if you have any questions regarding our Policy with respect to children.
With respect to persons age 18 or older, the Sites collect personally identifiable information required to participate in certain Sites features and transactions (e.g., in connection with Jr. NBA program enrollment, newsletters, games, contests, sweepstakes, promotions, etc.). This information may vary but will typically include your first and last name, mailing address (including city, postal code and country), complete date of birth, e-mail address, contact number, school name, basketball skill level, favorite basketball team and player and, if applicable, coaching information (e.g., level, years of experience).
It may also include additional information, such as information about your interests in and use of various products, programs and services. You may also be requested to provide a unique member name and password to access and use certain features of the Site. You may elect to provide us with other personally identifiable information, such as in your profile, which may be visible to the public. If you provide personally identifiable information in these ways, please note that such information may be available to the general public. In order to better customize and enhance your user experience, we may, subject to applicable law, combine the information that you provide with supplemental information (including mailing address updates and demographic data) that we obtain from public sources or reputable third-parties. Information combined with personally identifiable information becomes, and is treated as, personally identifiable information under this Policy.
The Sites also may collect information that is anonymous, de-identified or otherwise not intended to personally identify you, including without limitation, network or Internet Protocol (IP) address, type of browser you are using (e.g., Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari), the type of operating system you are using, (e.g., Microsoft Windows, MacOS), the domain name of your Internet or wireless service provider, the type and/or "device ID" of handheld or mobile devices you are using (e.g., iPhone, Galaxy), mobile network, the web pages you have visited within the Sites, sites visited before and after you visit a page on the Sites, general location information (e.g., city and/or country), the content you have accessed and the advertisements you have been shown and/or clicked on. The NBA Entities, Concept One and our third-party service providers, advertisers, advertising networks and platforms, agencies and/or partners may use the information described in this paragraph to improve the design and content of our (and their) respective Sites and other offerings, to deliver more relevant marketing messages and advertisements, to enable us to personalize your Internet experience, and to perform analytics.
If you are accessing the Sites from a mobile device or on another service, when we work with a partner (such as a mobile ad platform), you may be asked to share your geo-location information with us so we can customize your experience on the Sites. You will be able to turn off such data collection at any time by accessing the privacy settings of your mobile device or mobile application. We may combine this and other non-personally identifiable information with the personally identifiable information that we have collected, including to customize a user's experience of the Sites.
In addition, the Sites may solicit from time to time your opinion (e.g., to determine your preferences and dislikes in order to provide you with a better product or offering). These surveys are always optional, and your decision not to participate in a survey will not affect your status as a Sites user.
The personally identifiable information we ask you to provide is optional. However, if you choose not to provide the personally identifiable information we ask you to provide, you may not be able to register as a user of our Sites and we may not be able to provide you with full access to our products, services and our Sites.
Social Media Services and Other Third-Party Platforms. You also can engage with our content, such as video, games, applications, and other offerings, on or through third-party platforms or social media services, such as Facebook, and NBA Family or third-party social media plug-ins, integrations and applications. When you engage with our content on or through social media services or other third-party platforms, plug-ins, integrations and applications, you may allow us to have access to certain information from your social media profile (e.g., name, e-mail address, gender, birthday, location, an ID associated with the applicable third-party platform or social media service, your photos and videos, your list of friends or connections, people you follow and/or who follow you, your posts or 'likes') to deliver the content or as part of the operation of the application. We may also obtain non-personally identifiable information (e.g., content viewed, game performance, high scores, and information about advertisements within the content you have been shown or may have clicked on) from your interaction with our content. We may combine information which we obtain through third-party platforms or social media services with information we obtain directly through the Sites or from other sources.
Please review paragraph 3 (How personally identifiable and other information is used) for further details on our direct marketing practices.
We may also use locally stored objects ("LSOs") such as flash cookies and other client side storage tracking technologies to store information relevant to a particular application (e.g., in connection with an online game or video, to track participation in a poll, to remember settings, preferences and usage similar to browser cookies, or to target or help our partners target ads, analyze ad performance, or perform user, website or market analytics). We do not, however, use flash cookies to alter your browser settings regarding your preferences for the operation of browser cookies (e.g., we do not use flash cookies to recreate a browser cookie deleted by a user). If you would like to manage our use of flash cookies to store information about you, please visit the Website Storage Settings Panel, available at the uniform resource locator http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager07.html, available through the Adobe Flash Player settings management tool, and select any websites that reference http://rf.jrnba.com.

We, our third-party service providers, advertisers, advertising networks and platforms, agencies or our partners may also use "web beacons" or clear gifs, or similar technologies, which are small pieces of code placed on a web page, to monitor the behavior and collect data about the visitors viewing a web page. For example, web beacons may be used to count the users who visit a web page or to deliver a cookie to the browser of a visitor viewing that page. Web beacons may also be used to provide information on the effectiveness of our email campaigns (e.g., open rates, clicks, forwards).
We may work with third-parties (e.g., third-party ad platforms) to synchronize unique, anonymous identifiers (such as those associated with cookies) in order to match such third-parties' unique identifiers to our own. We may do this, for instance, to enhance data points about a particular unique browser or device, and thus enable us or our partners to send ads that are more relevant, match users to their likely product interests, or better synchronize, cap, or optimize advertising.
We also sometimes use, or partner with publishers or publisher-facing or app developer platforms that use, mobile Software Development Kits ("SDKs"), to collect information, such as mobile identifiers (e.g., for the iOS, ID For Advertising or "IDFAs" and for Android, the Android Advertising IDs), and information connected to how mobile devices interact with our Sites and those using our Sites. Such SDKs provide computer code that app developers can include in their apps to enable ads to be shown, data to be collected, and related services or analytics to be performed. We may use this technology to deliver or help our partners and other third-parties to deliver certain advertising through mobile applications and browsers based on information associated with your mobile device. If you'd like to opt-out from having ads tailored to you in this way on your mobile device, please follow the instructions in Paragraph 5 (Online Advertising) below.
We may work with certain third-party companies, including those integrated with our Sites, that use techniques other than HTTP cookies to recognize your computer or device and/or to collect and record information about your web surfing activity across multiple platforms or devices. Please keep in mind that your web browser may not permit you to block the use of these cross-platform or cross-device techniques, and those browser settings that block conventional cookies may have no effect on such techniques. To learn more about interest-based advertising or to opt-out of this type of advertising by those third-parties that are members of Digital Advertising Alliance's (the "DAA") opt-out program, please go to www.aboutads.info.
By visiting the Site, whether as a registered user or otherwise, you acknowledge, and agree that you are giving us your consent to track your activities and your use of the Site through the technologies described above, as well as similar technologies developed in the future, and that we may use such tracking technologies in the emails we send to you.

4. To whom the information may be disclosed
As indicated above, the Sites may disclose personally identifiable information to those within the NBA Family. From time to time, the Sites may also share personally identifiable information or non-personally identifiable information with third-parties that we have engaged to perform certain services in connection with the operation of certain aspects of the Sites, including to customize, deliver, measure, analyze, improve and support our services, content, advertising and layout, and your interaction with them, and to deliver more relevant messages and advertisements to you. These third-party service providers are authorized to use personally identifiable information only in a manner consistent with this Policy.
Direct marketing from sponsors and business partners. The NBA Family has several sponsors and other business partners that can offer valuable products and services to our users. NBAP may provide your personally identifiable information to these sponsors and business partners for them to use your personally identifiable information for direct marketing purposes. The Sites may provide them with a mailing address and other information so that they may extend offers to you. In some countries, we are only permitted to provide your personally identifiable information to other parties for direct marketing purposes where you have provided consent (in some cases, written consent is required) to provision of your personally identifiable information for such purposes, and we will only do so in such countries with your consent. By providing your personally identifiable information to us for such purposes, you are expressing consent to our provision of your personally identifiable information for direct marketing purposes. The Sites will not disclose your e-mail address to these partners if you have indicated, as described below, that you do not wish to receive information, special offers or promotions from third-parties via e-mail or any other means. If you do not want your personally identifiable information shared with these partners at any time, you may make such a request by sending Concept One an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will process your opt-out request and notify these partners of your opt-out request as soon as possible. From time to time, the Sites may also share or provide non-identifiable information to these partners.
We may share information that is anonymous, de-identified or otherwise not intended to personally identify you with our third-party service providers, advertisers, advertising networks and platforms, agencies, and/or partners for the purposes described in this Policy (e.g., to improve the design and content of such parties' respective offerings, to deliver more relevant marketing messages and advertisements, to enable us to personalize your Internet experience, and to perform analytics).
5. Overseas Transfers
The parties to whom we may disclose your information may be situated within or outside your home country and your personally identifiable information may be transferred to a place outside your home country. The personally identifiable information we collect from you may also be stored in a location outside your home country. In some of these countries, there may not be in place data protection laws which are substantially similar to, or serve the same purposes as, the data protection laws of your home country. That means your personally identifiable information may not be protected to the same or similar level as in your home country. In such cases, where we are required to do so by law, we will enter into contracts with the recipients of your personally identifiable information to ensure your personal data receives a similar level of protection in those countries as it would in your home country.
6. Online Advertising :
The Sites engage Concept One and third-parties to deliver advertisements on the Sites and on our behalf across the Internet. Often the ads presented to you are based on the content of pages you are viewing, but we also provide ads tailored to your interests. Our hope is that by presenting ads tailored to your interests, we will enhance your online experience. As part of this process Concept One and/or these third-parties may collect information about your online activities across the Sites and other websites, and supplement such information with information from third-parties, in an effort to make inferences about your interests and deliver to you advertisements or other content targeted to those interests.
For example, if you often visit content on the Sites about a specific NBA team, we may use "web beacons" to infer your possible interest in that NBA team and may deliver an ad to you related to that interest. It's important to understand that these technologies use anonymous identifiers within the "cookies" stored in your browser.
Opting Out. We offer you choices with regard to interest-based ads. As described above, if you configure your browser settings to reject all cookies, you will reduce the number of interest-based ads delivered to you on our behalf. If you prefer a more limited form of opting out without rejecting cookies altogether, you may opt out with respect to individual entities involved in delivering interest-based ads on our behalf. You may also elect to use various tools (such as browser add-ons) that block web beacons. Please note that opting out of receiving interest-based ads will not reduce the overall number of advertisements you receive.
Mobile Device Advertising & Tracking. We, our third-party service providers, advertisers, advertising networks and platforms, agencies, and/or our partners may also collect identifiers designed to enable advertising on your mobile device. However, depending on your device, you may be able to reset your mobile device's advertising identifier at any time by accessing the privacy settings on your mobile device. In addition, when using a mobile application you may receive tailored in-application advertisements. Each operating system (e.g., currently iOS for Apple phones, Android for Android devices and Windows for Microsoft devices) provides its own instructions on how to restrict the delivery of tailored in-application advertisements. You may review the support materials and/or the privacy settings for the respective operating systems in order to opt-out of such advertisements. For any other devices and/or operating systems, please visit the privacy settings for the applicable device or contact the applicable platform operator.
7. What choices are available to you regarding collection, use and disclosure of the information, Opting-Out
Subject to the limitations described below, if you elect to create a user profile on the Site, you will periodically receive emails regarding your account (e.g., emails containing or describing Jr. NBA program registration benefits, informing you of changes to your registration status, or providing other information about your registration). In addition, as a registered user of the Sites, you will have the opportunity to receive newsletters, selected sponsor offers, and other promotions by e-mail. You will receive such e-mails as a result of the preferences indicated in the enrollment process or subsequent changes made to your preferences.

8. The kind of security procedures that are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control
The Sites have generally accepted security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under its control. The servers for the Sites that contain personally identifiable information are stored in physically secure and climate controlled facilities. Beyond the physical protection of the servers, we protect against data loss by backing up data, performing consistency checks, and restricting access to information on our servers. Other features, like email and contact us, are not encrypted. When providing sensitive information on the Internet, you should also look at your browser to determine whether "Secure Sockets Layer," an industry standard security protocol, is being employed (usually indicated by an image of a lock in the browser frame). In addition, only those employees needed to carry out our business functions will be authorized to have access to information on individual Site users.
It is important to remember that whatever you transmit or disclose online can be collected and used by others or unlawfully intercepted by third-parties. No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially reasonable means to protect your information, we cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.
Your Site profile account is password protected. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. At no time will any Sites employee ask for your password via e-mail. If you ever receive such an inquiry, please notify the Sites immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your member names, passwords and/or other account information.
Any information voluntarily disclosed by users and posted on the Sites (on message boards, web logs, and/or in chat areas) may be viewed and used by others. If users post personally identifiable information that is accessible to the public online, the user does so at his or her own risk. Users accept that they may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.

All registrants will be required to enter their full name (of child and his/her parent), (parent's) e-mail address, city, school, grade/class, date of birth and/or (parent's) mobile number. If the Sites determine that a person is under the age of 18 based on the information provided during the registration process, that person will not be permitted to register for such features on the Sites. In addition, when a child under 18 years old tries to register for certain interactive features on the Sites, he or she may be directed to content which does not involve the submission of personally identifiable information. Minors who indicate that they are under 18 years old will not be able to participate in interactive features on the Sites that involve the collection and retention of personally identifiable information (e.g., entering a sweepstakes) and they will not be contacted about special offers or promotions.
The Sites works with (and may provide links to) third-party sites that offer features described on the Sites.
