Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy:

Detroit Sports Nation ("DSN") operates DetroitSportsNation.com and may operate other websites. It is Detroit Sports Nation's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, DSN collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Detroit Sports Nation's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Detroit Sports Nation's visitors use its website. From time to time, DSN may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

DSN also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on DetroitSportsNation.com blogs/sites. DSN only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Detroit Sports Nation's websites choose to interact with DSN in ways that require DSN to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that DSN gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at DetroitSportsNation.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with DSN are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, DSN collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with DSN. DSN does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

DSN may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. DSN may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, DSN does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

DSN discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Detroit Sports Nation's behalf or to provide services available at Detroit Sports Nation's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Detroit Sports Nation's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. DSN will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, DSN discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when DSN believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of DSN, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an DSN website and have supplied your email address, DSN may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with DSN and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. DSN takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. DSN uses cookies to help DSN identify and track visitors, their usage of DSN website, and their website access preferences. DSN visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Detroit Sports Nation's websites, with the drawback that certain features of Detroit Sports Nation's websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If DSN, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that DSN goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of DSN may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by DSN and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, DSN may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Detroit Sports Nation's sole discretion. DSN encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a DetroitSportsNation.com account, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
