TRANSFER OF INFORMATION :
Public Content :
Individual portions of the website are open to any viewer, such as our community forums and your profile. Any information you post in these locations may be available and accessible to other members. Also, the website contains features that permit you to upload, post, transmit, display, perform or distribute content, information or other data, including your personal information. Any information that you choose to disclose using such features becomes public information. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information using such elements, and you agree to assume all responsibility for doing so.
If you post content for public view on the website, we may distribute such public content to a broader audience by sharing it (or portions of it) with third parties so that they can publish it on their websites and media platforms. We may ask them to credit you as the source of these contributions by including your account name and profile photo.
Third party advertising :
Google AdSense is used on The Sports Vine.com. Adsense serves ads based on the content of the sites you view. As you browse websites that have partnered with Google or Google sites, such as YouTube, Google may place a cookie in your browser to track the types of pages visited or content that you viewed. Based on this information, Google associates your browser with relevant interest categories and uses these categories to show interest-based ads. For example, if you frequently visit travel websites, Google may show more ads related to travel. Google will not associate sensitive interest categories with your browser (such as those based on race, religion, sexual orientation, health, or sensitive financial types), and will not use such categories when showing you interest-based ads.
Opting out of interest-based advertising: If you prefer not to receive interest-based advertising, you can click on the “Opt out” button on the Google Ads Preferences Manager Page. Google also offers many options to save your opt-out settings in your browser permanently. After you opt out, Google will not collect interest category information, and you will not receive interest-based ads.
We reserve the right to investigate abuses on the website and enforce and apply our Terms of Service and Statement. We may disclose information about you to third parties if we have a good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to (A) take action regarding suspected illegal activities. (B) enforce or apply our Terms of Service and Statement. (C) comply with legal process and law enforcement instructions and orders, such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, judicial proceeding, or other legal process served on us. (D) protect our rights, reputation, and property, or that of our users, affiliates, or the public.
