FLW Fantasy Fishing Privacy Policy & Legal Notices



General

FLW, LLC has produced a comprehensive Web site utilizing the following URLs: operationbass.com, flwtour.com, flwoutdoors.com, fantasyfishing.com and fantasyfishing.cn (the "Web Site") which provides information, forums for communication and current events surrounding the various fishing tournaments produced by FLW, including, but not limited to, the Walmart FLW Tour, the EverStart Series, the Walmart Bass Fishing League (BFL), the College Fishing, and the FLW High School Fishing. We also provide opportunities for our sponsors to present relevant outdoors content and conduct e-commerce as a convenience to our visitors.

The following Privacy Policy will help you to understand how we will treat your personal information. As we continue to improve the Web Site and as we take advantage of developments in technology, this policy may change from time to time. So please check this policy on an ongoing basis for revisions and updates.



What individual personal information does FLW Fantasy Fishing collect from me?

FLW Fantasy Fishing collects information from the Web Site in several ways. During registration, FLW Fantasy Fishing asks for information such as your name, e-mail address and zip code. You may also be asked for personal information when you report a problem with the Web Site or services or if you otherwise contact FLW Fantasy Fishing. Of course, we will require credit card information, as well as billing and shipping information, when you choose to register as a member of FLW Fantasy Fishing and/or register for an FLW Fantasy Fishing tournament on the Web Site.

FLW Fantasy Fishing DOES NOT INTENTIONALLY COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13.



How does FLW Fantasy Fishing use my information?

FLW Fantasy Fishing' primary purpose for collecting and using personal information is to improve our Web Site and to provide you with an experience on our Web Site that is tailored to your preferences and information requests. The more we know about you, the better equipped we are to provide you with the service, selection and content that is expected of FLW Fantasy Fishing, operationbass.com, flwtour.com, flwoutdoors.com, fantasyfishing.com and fantasyfishing.cn.



Who is collecting the information and with whom is it being shared?

When you are on the FLW Fantasy Fishing Web Site and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with only FLW Fantasy Fishing, its agents and representatives. FLW Fantasy Fishing will not disclose any of your individual personal information except when we have your express permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it. FLW Fantasy Fishing may also disclose account information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) FLW Fantasy Fishing' rights or property, other FLW Fantasy Fishing users or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.

In addition, please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example on message boards, through e-mail, or in threaded discussion areas - that information can be collected and used.

In addition to the uses noted above, visitors who supply us with personal information as part of an online survey may receive a phone call from us for confirmation purposes or, when indicated, for an interview by a reporter.

Through FLW Fantasy Fishing you will be introduced to a variety of third party Official Sponsor sites. For example, you can review the products offered by our Sponsors included in "Sponsors" section, and there are contests and sweepstakes operated by FLW Fantasy Fishing and its Sponsors in which you can participate. The privacy polices of these third parties are not under our control. The use of any information that you may provide to any third party will be governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site that you are visiting, which may differ from ours. As well, in some cases these third parties may share the information that they collect about you with FLW Fantasy Fishing. If you have any doubts about the privacy of the information you are providing, you should look for the privacy policy of the site that you are visiting via a link from that site's home page or elsewhere. If you cannot find that site's privacy policy, or if you are uncertain about the entity to which you are providing your information, you should contact that site directly for more information.

FLW Fantasy Fishing may disclose aggregated user statistics (for example, 45% of our users are female) to others, but none of these statistics will contain personally identifiable information about our customers and their browsing habits.

Offline and online contact information is handled differently. As is customary in the publications business, offline contact information is shared with third parties who may send you offers or information about their products or services that we deem may be of interest to you. You must opt-out if you do not wish to receive information from us or third parties by mail. Please send your request to: Customer Service, FLW Fantasy Fishing, Benton KY 42025. FLW Fantasy Fishing will continue to send you information regarding your account unless you specifically request that we do not contact you regarding your account.



What are my choices regarding collection, use and distribution of my information?

If you indicated upon registration that you are interested in receiving offers or information from FLW Fantasy Fishing or our Sponsors, we may occasionally send you e-mail about products and services that we feel may be of interest to you. Only FLW Fantasy Fishing (or agents or representatives working on behalf of FLW Fantasy Fishing) will send you these e-mails and only if you indicated that you wish to receive these offers. If you choose to stop receiving these mailings, you can, at any time, simply go to the "FAQ's" area of the Web Site and follow the instructions so that you will no longer receive such offers and mailings.



What are cookies and how does FLW Fantasy Fishing use them?

A "cookie" is a small file stored by your web browser on your computer's hard drive for future reference. FLW Fantasy Fishing uses "cookies" to compile information about our customers' use of our Web Site so that we may improve your experience at FLW Fantasy Fishing. FLW Fantasy Fishing cannot and will not use cookies to retrieve any personal information about you unless you have previously purchased from or registered with FLW Fantasy Fishing. FLW Fantasy Fishing does not and cannot use cookies to retrieve personal information about you from your computer unless you knowingly and willingly provided such information. Even though most web browsers accept "cookies," most browsers also give you the option to reject "cookies." Please note that although you may set your browser to reject "cookies," you will still be able to visit the FLW Fantasy Fishing site; however, your browsing experience will be affected.



What security precautions are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of my information?

We at FLW are aware that you may be concerned about the privacy and confidentiality of your personal information, including, of course, credit card information. FLW has taken steps to ensure that this information is well protected. We protect your transactions using a technology called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). If your browser is capable of SSL, and most are, your sensitive information will automatically be encrypted before being sent over the Internet, providing you with a high level of security to ease your concerns.

Alas, no data transmission over the Internet can be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your personal information, FLW cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online that information can be collected and used by others. Please be careful and responsible whenever you're online.



Refund policy

All membership subscriptions are non-refundable purchases. If you have any questions about your membership, please call FLW at (270) 252-1000



Sponsors section

In addition, FLW Fantasy Fishing' Sponsor section allows you to link directly to our Official Sponsors Web sites and potentially purchase many different types of products and services online that are provided by our Official Sponsors. FLW Fantasy Fishing is not responsible for the quality, accuracy, timeliness, reliability or any other aspect of these products and services. If you make a purchase from a Sponsor, the information obtained during your visit to the sponsor's store, and the information that you give such as your credit card number and contact information, is collected by the merchants and not by FLW Fantasy Fishing. These merchants have separate privacy and data collection practices. FLW Fantasy Fishing has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies.
