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
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.
