As you navigate through and interact with our Website, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns, including: 

  • Details of your visits to our Website, including traffic data, location data, logs and other communication data and the resources that you access and use on a Website. 

  • Information about your computer and internet connection, including your IP address, operating system, and browser type. 

We also may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services (behavioral tracking).  

Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to the websites with which the user communicates. We do not currently take action in response to those signals. If an industry standard on responding to such signals is established and accepted, we may reassess how to respond to those signals. 

The information we collect automatically may include personal information or we may maintain it or associate it with personal information we collect in other ways or receive from third parties. It helps us to improve our Website and to deliver a better and more personalized service, including by enabling us to: 

  • Estimate our audience size and usage patterns. 

  • Store information about your preferences, allowing us to customize our Website according to your individual interests. 

  • Speed up your searches. 

  • Recognize you when you return to our Website. 

The technologies we use for this automatic data collection may include: 

  • Cookies (or browser cookies). Cookies are small text files that websites and other online services use to store information about users on the users’ own computers. For example, cookies can be used to store your sign-in credentials so that you do not have to enter them each time you return to a website. Cookies also may be used to store a unique identification number tied to your computer so that a website can recognize you as the same user across different visits to the website. You can configure your internet browser to warn you each time a cookie is being sent or to refuse cookies completely.   

  • Flash Cookies and Other Local Storage. We, along with third-party partners, may use other kinds of local storage, such as Local Shared Objects (also referred to as “Flash cookies”) and HTML5 local storage, in connection with the Websites. These technologies are similar to the cookies discussed above in that they are stored on your computer and can be used to store certain information about your activities and preferences. These objects are stored in different parts of your computer from ordinary browser cookies, however. Many internet browsers allow you to disable HTML5 local storage or delete information contained in HTML5 local storage using browser controls. 

  • Web Beacons. We, along with our third-party partners, may also use technologies called web beacons that communicate information from your internet browser to a web server. Web beacons can be embedded in web pages, videos, or emails, and can allow a web server to read certain types of information from your browser, check whether you have viewed a particular web page or email message, and determine, among other things, the time and date on which you viewed the web beacon, the IP address of your computer, and the URL of the web page from which the web beacon was viewed. We and our partners use web beacons for a variety of purposes, including analyzing the use of the Websites and in conjunction with cookies to provide content that is more relevant to you. 

 

5. Social Media 

To communicate with our current or potential customers, participants, participants’ families or other users we may use Social Media Presences, which may be operated by third parties, such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.  This privacy policy applies to our use of information you submit to us there, but it does not apply to what those third party platforms do with your information.  Those platforms have their own privacy policies and terms of service, and we encourage you to read them. 

 

6. Third-Party Use of Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies 

Some content or applications, including advertisements, on the Websites are served by third parties, including advertisers, ad networks and servers, content providers, and application providers. These third parties may use cookies alone or in conjunction with web beacons or other tracking technologies to collect information about you when you use our website. The information they collect may be associated with your personal information or they may collect information, including personal information, about your online activities over time and across different websites and other online services. They may use this information to provide you with interest-based (behavioral) advertising or other targeted content.  

We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly. For information about how you can opt out of receiving targeted advertising from many providers, see the “Choices About How We Use and Disclose Your Information” section below.

We may use the information we have collected from you to enable us to display advertisements to our advertisers’ target audiences.

These entities may use your information to make predictions about your interests and may provide you with special offers, promotional materials, advertisements and other materials. 

  • Partners. To partners who provide products or services that may be of interest to you, including: (i) educational products and services (e.g., colleges, student loans, financial aid, college admissions and tutorial services, and extra-curricular enrichment and recognition programs); (ii) career, employment, and military opportunities; (iii) athletic apparel and equipment companies; (iv) recruiting services; (v) sports related activities; and (vi) other relevant products and services. These partners may use your information to make predictions about your interests and may provide you with special offers, promotional materials, advertisements and other materials. 

  • Service Providers. To contractors, service providers, and other third parties we use to support our business, including companies that provide payment processing, shipping, web analytics, data processing, web hosting, technical support, advertising, email distribution and other services. 

  • Buyers and Successors. To a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of Reigning Champs’ assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by Reigning Champs about our Website users is among the assets transferred.

  • Your Purpose. To fulfill the purpose for which you provide it.  

  • Other Disclosed Purposes. For any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information.

9. Choices About How We Use and Disclose Your Information 

We strive to provide you with choices regarding the personal information you provide to us. There are certain mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information:  

  • Tracking Technologies and Advertising. You can set your browser to refuse all or some browser cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. To learn how you can manage your Flash cookie settings, visit the Flash player settings page on Adobe’s website. If you disable or refuse cookies, please note that some parts of this site may then be inaccessible or not function properly. 

  • Promotional Offers from Reigning Champs. If you do not wish to have your contact information submitted through the Websites that is used by Reigning Champs to promote our own or third parties’ products or services, you can opt-out by sending us an email stating your request to info@nflflag2020.com or using the “unsubscribe” feature in our promotional emails. This opt out does not apply to our use of information for purposes that are primarily transactional or relationship, rather than primarily promotional, in nature. 

  • Targeted Advertising. In some cases, we and advertisers on the Websites work with other third-party vendors to help deliver advertisements targeted to your interests. These vendors include ad networks and analytics providers, and they use cookies or other technologies to collect information about your online activity (e.g., the sites and pages you have visited) in order to help advertisers deliver particular ads that they believe you would find most relevant. Many third-party vendors that perform these functions are members of the Network Advertising Initiative or the Digital Advertising Alliance, and you can opt out of those vendors’ delivery of targeted advertising to you by visiting http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp and http://www.aboutads.info/choices/.  Please note that, because these opt-out tools will place a cookie on your computer to record your opt-out preference, any actions you take using these tools will apply only to the web browser that you use to take the action. Also, these tools may not work as expected if you set your browser to refuse cookies. Sometimes, our advertisers will contract with a third-party service to host their ads. In this case, an ad-serving vendor contacts the advertisers’ hosting service to obtain a particular advertisement. Because we do not have a relationship with these third parties, we do not have a mechanism to allow visitors to opt out of tracking by these vendors.   

  • Opt-Out Processing Time. Please understand that it may take us some time to process any opt out request and that even if you opt out of receiving promotional correspondence from us, we may still contact you in connection with your relationship, activities, transactions and communications with us.  Also, to stop receiving promotional messages from third parties who already have your contact information, please contact them directly. 

We do not control third parties’ collection or use of your information to serve interest-based advertising. However these third parties may provide you with ways to choose not to have your information collected or used in this way. You can opt out of receiving targeted ads from members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) on the NAI’s website. 

California residents may have additional personal information rights and choices. Please see the “Your California Privacy Rights” section below for more information.
