This policy is concerned with the protection of your personal information only. Personal information includes any data that can be used to identify you as an individual, including your name, income, personal opinion, interests, home contact information, identification numbers, user IDs, passwords, ethnic origin, and age. Under Canadian law, in a business context, personal information does not include the name, job title, business address, or business telephone number of any employee in an organization.
This policy describes the following practices:
NOTE: Top Score software and services are intended for use by coaches, teams, players, and organizations that provide services to coaches, teams and players (including scouts). As such, we work together with the coaches, teams, players, and organizations with whom we contract to provide the services to obtain the appropriate consents from parents and guardians for players who are minors to use our services. If you believe that we might have any information relating to a minor using our services which was obtained without the appropriate consents, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We collect information about you in the following ways:
As part of your registration for Top Score’s services
As a coach, we require that you provide us with your first and last name, your team name, your geographic location and/or address, your valid email address to register for services; as a player, we may require that you provide us with your first and last name, your valid email address (or that of your parent or guardian) and the team name. You will be provided with the ability to create an account with Top Score, which will entail a personal identifier and password. This information is kept confidential and stored securely by Top Score; when logging into your account with Top Score, other users may see content that you post, associated with your team and/or user ID, but will not have access to any other registration information.
As part of your input using Top Score’s services
Top Score offers the ability for you to submit information as part of the process of scoring baseball games and managing team statistics. The amount and level of detail of the information you provide is completely up to you, so that you control the type of content that is sent to you by Top Score. Please be advised that any personal information that you voluntarily post to any public forum or to any area where third parties may legally access it, will NOT be considered confidential in any way, and Top Score will not have any obligation to protect it in a secured system or obtain your consent to its disclosure, as you will have made the decision to publicly post it. Top Score neither expects nor desires you to include any personal information, whether of yourself or of any third party, in any content that you may post or upload to Top Score’s site, and if you include any such personal information of yourself or any third party, it is your responsibility to obtain all relevant and informed consents to such inclusion.
At your request, Top Score will be happy to change, remove, or restrict access to any post or upload made by you, or data pertaining to you (subject to technical feasibility) in order to protect the integrity of personal information included in it; however, Top Score strongly encourages players, and parents and guardians of players, to discuss any issues respecting data posting with the coach that is posting such data prior to approaching Top Score for any resolution, as the inputting of data respecting teams and players is solely within the coach’s control.>
Automatically by Top Score’s software and services
Top Score’s software and services contain features that automatically collect information from users, such as aggregate statistics, and other data analysis information. We use this information in order to improve our services and obtain aggregate user information. Additionally, use of Top Score’s website and/or software may result in the collection of technical information such as your computer's IP address, mobile device type, operating system, browser name/version, date/time, and sometimes a "cookie" (which can be disabled using your browser preferences); such information is used to help us understand the overall usage pattern of our website and software.
You contact Top Score directly
You respond to communications from Top Score
From time to time, Top Score may invite you to provide us with information for specific purposes. We may ask for this information through feedback features on our website or software; we may send out e-mail inviting feedback or offering products and services; or we may ask you for information concerning support of our products or services. Your response to these communications may require you to submit personal information and opinions.
Subject to any exceptions stated above in the collection of information section, should Top Score collect any of your personal information, we will follow these practices regarding the distribution of that information.
Your personal information is protected
Top Score uses reasonable precautions to protect your personal information and store it securely. Access to your personal information is restricted to those personnel who need it, and Top Score takes reasonable steps to prevent the unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information.
Top Score only uses and discloses your personal information if it is required by the nature of the requested services, to help us facilitate your needs, improve our products and services, meet legal and regulatory requirements, or — to the limited extent possible — manage our internal business operations. Additionally, if there are any disclosure or use restrictions in your consent to the collection of your personal information, Top Score will abide by those restrictions (subject to the consent exceptions listed below).
Top Score may combine your information with other information into an aggregate form, so your information no longer personally identifies you. We may then disclose the aggregate information to third parties, including other users, organizations and potential investors or customers, so they can obtain an overall picture of Top Score’s services, data and/or usage patterns. This includes the provision of aggregate data, based on content posted by users.
Your consent will normally be required for us to share your information
Top Score provides your information to third parties only for purposes to which you have consented, and we require such third parties to keep your information confidential and to use such information only for the purposes for which it was provided.
In a few situations, Top Score may be required to disclose your information without your prior consent. For example, Top Score may disclose your information if we are required to do so by law, or if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to:
Top Score will always try to provide you with prior notice of such disclosure; however, such notice may not always be possible or reasonable given the circumstances.
Top Score has established the following practices regarding the maintenance of your personal information.
You can access and change your personal information at any time
Sometimes, it will be necessary for you to update your personal information Top Score has on file. In some cases, you can do so by logging into your account with Top Score and changing the information yourself; otherwise, you may contact Top Score to do so. Due to the way in which certain information is stored, it is not possible for you to obtain access to or change the statistical information that Top Score stores pertaining to you. However, you may request that such information be uncoupled from any personal information of yours, so that it no longer can be associated with you personally.
You can opt out of communications at any time
Additionally, you always have the choice of whether you wish to receive information from Top Score. If you do choose to opt out of communications respecting software, products and services provided by Top Score, you may not obtain all the benefits we could otherwise provide, such as updates or warnings. Top Score will not have any liability to you for your loss of those benefits or any negative effects respecting your use of Top Score’s services.
You can request that your personal information be destroyed at any time
