General Practices Policy Statement

Haute Stick Lacrosse recognizes its obligation to its

customers, community and online visitors to

adhere to the highest standards of decency,

fairness, and integrity in all its operations.

Likewise, we're dedicated to the fundamentals of

protecting consumer privacy on the Internet,

especially for kids. We've developed our Web

Site Practices from guidelines established by

the American Association of Advertising

Agencies, Association of National Advertisers,

and the Children's Advertising Review Unit



Gathering and Use of Information

Haute Stick Lacrosse only collects personal information from

our visitors on a voluntary basis. We don't

require this information to obtain access to any

of our sites. Personal information received from

any visitor will only be used for internal

Haute Stick Lacrosse purposes and will not be sold or

provided to third parties.


In communicating with kids, Haute Stick Lacrosse is

especially mindful of the need to protect their

personal privacy. We include several notices

asking kids to get parental permission before

providing any personal information and will use

our best efforts to obtain parental permission

which may include requiring a parent to send us

a signed permission form via regular mail and/or

making telephone contact with parents.


Personal information may include name, address,

e-mail address, age, etc., and may be collected

for contest entry forms, requests for

information from Haute Stick Lacrosse, to join our updates

list, etc. We may also occasionally ask, on a

voluntary basis and with parental permission, if

appropriate, for personal information for our

internal use, such as marketing and research.

We'll maintain your privacy and will not sell or

provide this information to third parties.


Only those who ask to be added to our updates

list or who ask for information from us will

receive e-mail communications from us. We offer

an "opt-out" feature that allows you to remove

your and/or your kids' e-mail address from our

files at any time. You can always re-enter.



Haute Stick Lacrosse may use "cookie" technology to obtain

non-personal information from its online

visitors. The cookie tracks the total number of

visitors to our sites in an aggregate form

(you're one of a group and your information is

not singled out). We don't extract personal

information in this process nor do we provide

this information to third parties. We also do

not contact you. Cookies allow us to update and

improve our sites.



Wherever advertising is used on our sites, we

include a special icon to notify you that you're

looking at an advertisement or sponsorship.



I'm the Ad BugTM. I'll show up

everywhere on the Haute Stick Lacrosse web site where

there is an ad.



Haute Stick Lacrosse Web Sites may contain "links" to other

sites, and we make every effort to only link to

sites that share our high standards of decency,

fairness, and integrity. We try our best to

ensure that these links are safe for kids.

However, kids should always check with a

parent/guardian or adult before linking to any

new sites.



Haute Stick Lacrosse has taken steps to make all information

received from our online visitors as secure as

possible against unauthorized access and use.

All information is protected by our security

measures, which are periodically reviewed.



Haute Stick Lacrosse approaches our communications on the

Internet with the same respect for, and

commitment to, individual privacy rights,

concern, and respect for the different

sensibilities of our child consumers. We support

active self-regulation of this new environment

to ensure that responsible marketers can

maintain the right to use all communication

media to interact with its consumers.
