By submitting a photo to such email address you shall have, and shall be deemed to have, consented to the use of and publication of such photo on our website and you represent and warrant that all persons represented in such photo have provided all consents necessary for Sport Spuds, LLC to publish such photo on our website for no consideration or payment other than as expressly set forth on our website. Sport Spuds, LLC reserves the right to refuse to publish any photos received for any reason whatsoever or for no reason. Sport Spuds, LLC will not publish any photos that it, in its sole and absolute discretion, deems inappropriate for any reason. You may request that we remove and delete any photo that you submit at any time and we will promptly honor such request. If Sport Spuds, LLC does not publish a user’s photo for any reason or removes a user’s photo from our website at a user’s request or otherwise, such photo will be deleted from Sport Spuds, LLC’s computers to the best of its ability.
Users may also browse, find, follow, tag, message, comment or otherwise participate in public areas of our website. By choosing to participate in these public areas of our website, please be aware that any information submitted through these areas is not private and your information, including personal data, associated with Sport Spuds, LLC or your other linked third-party accounts may be displayed to the public. Please use caution in disclosing personal data in these public areas.
We may also obtain certain information described above from third parties. These third-party sources include, for example: data brokers and aggregators from which we obtain data to supplement the data we collect; third party applications and services, including social media applications and networks you choose to connect with or interact with through our website; and third parties that collect or provide data in connection with work they do on our behalf, for example companies that determine your device’s location based on its IP address.
We may use your personal information in the following ways: to process and fulfill your order, including to send you emails to confirm your order status and shipment; to contact you about special promotions, new products, and updates on our website; to understand your shopping preferences to better serve you in the future; to allow you to use our in-store and online technologies; to provide consistent, personalized services across all channels, including to personalize our advertising, marketing communications, shopping experiences, and promotional offers; to organize local community events and promotions; to facilitate social sharing; to allow you to enroll and participate in a loyalty or customer relationship program such as our subscribe and save program; to prevent, detect, mitigate, and investigate fraud, security breaches, and activities that are or may be prohibited or illegal; to enforce our terms of service or other policies; or as we believe to be required or appropriate under applicable law and/or to respond to requests from government authorities and comply with legal process.
You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use any payment method you provide in connection with your purchase of any items on our website. By submitting your payment information, you authorize us and any third party collecting this information on our behalf, to provide your information to third parties to facilitate your requested transaction.
Keeping your personal financial information private is vitally important to us. If you purchase our products online, we need your name, mailing address, and credit card or bank account information in order to fulfill your order. We also request an email address and/or telephone number in order to contact you about your order. Any time we ask for a credit card or bank account number, however, we always transmit that payment information in an encrypted format, which keeps it from being understood by unauthorized people. We use industry-standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption to ensure that is the case. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. In short, we cannot absolutely ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us – no one can – and therefore ultimately you do so at your own risk.
We may also use web analysis services, either directly or through third party providers, to collect information about your usage of our website (including your anonymized IP address). We will use this information to evaluate usage of our website, to create reports about the website activities, and to help us provide further services to our users such as you.
Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to us. To safeguard your information and help protect you from identity theft, we do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your login information, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited email or telephone communication. For more information about phishing, visit the Federal Trade Commission’s website.

Occasionally we may provide links on our website to other sites we think you will enjoy. These sites operate independently of us and have established their own privacy and security policies.

YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
California’s “Shine the Light” law, Civil Code section 1798.83, requires certain businesses to respond to requests from California customers asking about the businesses’ practices related to disclosing personal information to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. Alternately, such businesses may have in place a policy not to disclose personal information of customers to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes if the customer has exercised an option to opt out of such information sharing. We have such a policy. As discussed above, if you want to opt out of any sharing of your information please email us at email@example.com.
