PLEASE NOTE THAT INFORMATION COLLECTED ON THIS SITE WILL NOT BE SHARED OR TRANSFERRED TO OTHER SITES FOR MARKETING PURPOSES.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE “CHILDREN UNDER 13” SECTION BELOW DISCUSSES SPECIAL INFORMATION PRACTICES WITH RESPECT TO CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13.
Please note that this “personal information” section applies only to those visitors to the Site who are age 13 and older. We follow special procedures when collecting information from visitors under 13, which are set forth in the “Children Under 13” section below.
We consider the following to be personal information: first and last name, email address, street address, phone number and other information that identifies an individual.
We (and/or our agents or affiliates) may collect online and use personal information from visitors who are 13 or older: (1) in connection with contests, sweepstakes, games, surveys, forums, subscription registrations, content submissions, our requests for suggestions and visitors' requests for information; and (2) to customize the content on our Site for our visitors' current and future needs. In addition, this personal information may be used to provide our visitors, via email or other means, information about materials and activities that may be of interest to them, including products or services of third parties. For these reasons, we may share such information with third parties.
Disclosure of Personal information
As CLS develops, we may buy other businesses or their assets or sell our business or assets. User information is generally one of the business assets involved in such transactions. Thus, in the event CLS or some of its or their assets are acquired, user personal information may be one of the transferred assets.
Finally, CLS reserves the right to disclose visitor personal 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) CLS’ rights or property, other visitors, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. CLS also reserves the right to disclose visitor information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
CHILDREN UNDER 13
There are many activities on the Site that children can participate in and enjoy without having to share personal information.
Collection and Use of Information; Parental Notice/Consent
In accordance with COPPA, CLS does not require a child under the age of 13 to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in an activity as a condition of participation.
We may collect a child’s email address in connection with a contest, sweepstakes or a question emailed to us by the child for the sole purpose of communicating with the child on a one-time-only basis (for example, to contact the winner of a contest or respond to a question). We will not use this information to recontact the child and we will delete it from our records once the game or contest is over. We will obtain written parental consent before sending any prizes to contest winners or posting any information about any winners on the Site.
We may collect a child’s name and email address to the extent reasonably necessary to protect the security of the Site, to protect against liability, or as required or permitted by law without obtaining a parent’s consent. Information collected for these reasons will not be used for any other purpose.
Prior to any other collection or use of personal information from a child under 13, CLS shall obtain a parent’s consent to such collection and use in accordance with COPPA. We may seek a parent’s consent to collect information such as a child’s name, mailing address, email address, etc.
Parents of children under age 13 may review or delete personal information about their children from our records at any time. If you would like to review or delete your child’s personal information, please contact us at Marketing@chicagolandspeedway.com. When a parent requests deletion of his or her child’s information, we will use reasonable efforts to delete as much of the child’s information from our database as possible and refrain from collecting any other personal information from such child. However, there may be residual information that will remain within our databases that may or may not contain personal information. This residual information will not be given to any other third party or used for any commercial purpose.
Remember to be smart online. Do not give out your full name, email address, home address, telephone number or any other personal information that would enable someone to contact you either online or offline, without first asking your parent or guardian for permission. Sometimes on our Site we will ask you for your first name and email address along with your parents' email address. We do this so that we can contact your parents to let them know that you have communicated with us, and that we have collected this information from you.
NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION AND THE USE OF COOKIE TECHNOLOGY
We collect non-personal information through the use of a software technology called "cookies," and through our visitors' voluntary submissions to us and/or upon our request. By non-personal information, we are referring to information about our visitors' browsers, operating systems, Internet service providers and other similar information which we track in aggregate form. We may also collect the following non-personal information in connection with features that we may offer on the Site, such as comment submissions, games and free downloads. The non-personal information that we track is anonymous and will not be identified with or lead us back to any of our visitors.
Cookie technology helps us to know how many people visit us and where visitors go on our Site. Cookies are small bits of information we send to your computer. Among other things, this non-personal information allows us to know which areas are favorites, which areas need a bit of improvement, or what technologies and Internet services are being used by our visitors so that we may continually improve our visitors' online experiences.
USE OF IP ADDRESSES
We collect IP addresses to obtain aggregate information on the use of the Site. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by a Web server when you're on the Web. When you are on our Site, we have a back-end server that logs your computer's IP address. We only use the information we find out from tracking IP addresses in the aggregate, such as how many users entered a specific area of our Site, and not to track a specific IP address to identify an individual user. However, we may use such information to identify a user if we feel that there are or may be safety and/or security issues or to comply with legal requirements.
We use third-party companies to serve ads when you visit our Web Site and to monitor traffic to our Site. These companies may (via cookies, gifs or otherwise) use aggregate information (not including your name, address, email address, telephone number, or any other personal information) about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide us with data about our Site and/or to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here.]
The security of your personal information is very important to us, and we are committed to protecting the personal information we collect. While we cannot guarantee absolute security of your personal information, we use firewalls and Secure Socket Layers for personal information we collect from you when it is being communicated to us. We also restrict access to personal information to those employees, agents and service providers who need to know or access the information in order to provide you with the Site. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with applicable federal privacy and data security laws and regulations to guard your personal information. Unfortunately, no transmissions or data available through the Internet can be 100% secure and, accordingly, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any personal information or other information you provide to us. You should always log out of the Site after use or if you step away from your computer to minimize the chance of others accessing your account.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
Visitors will find links from the Site to independently owned, controlled and/or managed websites whose content we have found of possible interest to our visitors. In many cases, but not always, the links represent cooperative projects or mutual links established with the organizations connected with these sites. While we initially visit these sites to which we directly link, please note that we do not monitor or control the content that appears on these sites and such content may be constantly changing. We recommend that children check with their parents before clicking off to any new sites, and we encourage all end users of the Site to read the privacy policies of all linked sites before navigating through them.
