Sport-Swap has established this privacy policy to explain to you how your information is protected, collected and used, which may be updated by Sport-Swap from time to time. Sport-Swap will provide notice of materially significant changes to this privacy policy by posting notice on the Sport-Swap site.

1. Protecting your privacy

We don’t run banner ads, pop ups, pop unders, or any other kind of commercial ads.

We don’t share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.

We don’t engage in cross-marketing or link-referral programs with other sites.

We don’t employ tracking devices for marketing purposes (“cookies”, “web beacons,” single-pixel gifs).

We don’t send you unsolicited communications for marketing purposes.

We offer  email anonymization & relay, to reduce 3rd party harvesting & spam.

Account information is password-protected. Keep your password safe.

Forums use basic webserver authentication. Close your browser to log out.

Sport-Swap does not knowingly collect any information from persons under the age of 13. If Sport-Swap learns that a posting is by a person under the age of 13, Sport-Swap will remove that post.

Sport-Swap, or people who post on Sport-Swap, may provide links to third party websites, which may have different privacy practices. We are not responsible for, nor have any control over, the privacy policies of those third party websites, and encourage all users to read the privacy policies of each and every website visited.

2. Data we collect

We sometimes collect your email address, for purposes such as sending self-publishing and confirmation emails, authenticating user accounts, providing subscription email services, registering for forums, etc.

We sometimes collect your phone number for account authentication purposes, and may transmit it to a third party service for tele-robotic verification.

Sport-Swap does not store credit card information. Credit card transactions are transmitted to a financial gateway, and we endeavor to protect the security of your payment information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology.

We may collect personal information if you provide it in feedback or comments, post it on our classifieds or interactive forums, or if you contact us directly. Please do not post any personal information on Sport-Swap’s forums or classifieds that you expect to keep private.

Our web logs collect standard web log entries for each page served, including your IP address, page URL, and timestamp. Web logs help us to diagnose problems with our server, to administer the Sport-Swap site, and to otherwise provide our service to you.

3. Data we store

All classified and forum postings are stored in our database, even after “deletion,” and may be archived elsewhere.

Our web logs and other records are stored indefinitely.

Although we make good faith efforts to store the information in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public, we cannot guarantee complete security.

4. Circumstances in which Sport-Swap may release information

Sport-Swap may disclose information about its users if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to respond to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process.

Sport-Swap may also disclose information about its users to law enforcement officers or others, in the good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to: enforce our Terms of Usage; respond to claims that any posting or other content violates the rights of third-parties; or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Sport-Swap, its users or the general public.
