Racemine, LLC. values your privacy and are committed to protecting your personal information. Our technology platform transforms the way organizers and timing companies manage their activities and events by automating online registrations and streamlining other critical management functions, while also driving consumer participation to their events.
You also can learn about events in your area, register for races, and enjoy many of the benefits of our websites through our mobile applications (collectively, "Applications"). In general, our Applications operate on an open network; that means that any information that you post to these Applications may be available to other users of the same application, and, in some instances the Racemine.com website.
We may collect information about both businesses and individuals. The information we collect from you allows you to log into our Sites; use our Applications; register for events, activities, or contests (collectively, "Events"); and allows us to provide our Services to you. We also use this information to personalize and continually improve our Sites and Services. Generally, we collect information about you directly from you or your use of our Services, but in some cases we may collect information about you from third parties, such as the sponsor of a particular Event for which you might have registered.
Account Information for our Sites. You may browse our Sites without creating an online account, but to use certain features, you must create an account. When you create an account with us, we may collect the following:
Once you have signed up for a particular Racemine website, on subsequent visits, you will simply enter your email address and password for that website. In the future, you may be able to use a single log in for all Racemine websites.
Log in and Location Information for our Mobile Applications. When you first visit any of our mobile Applications, you will enter your user ID and your password that you use for the service through which you downloaded the Application. You will have the option of creating a user ID and password for subsequent visits to our Applications. When you log into certain of our Applications, we will request your permission to obtain your current location (so-called "geolocation" information) so that we can identify Events near you. In the "settings" function on your phone, you also will have the ability to manually request that we record your geolocation information for certain Applications or features of Applications, for example, so that we can track your running route.
Events and Training Information. As a member of our Sites, you may post information about upcoming Events. We will collect the information that you enter about the Event. We also may collect information from you if you choose to register for an Event on our Sites as a participant or record your training activity. For some events, you may register directly on the Racemine.com website and through our Applications; for other Events, we may provide a link that directs you to the sponsor or holder of the Event. The information that we collect about you may vary based on the Event, but generally includes the same type of information that you would include when creating an account with us. In addition, we may collect your race chip ID. If there is a charge to enter the Event, we may collect your credit card billing information, including your credit card number, expiration date, billing and shipping address, and other information necessary to process your payment.
Charitable Events. You may create a page on certain of our Sites to collect donations for (i) your participation in a charity event (e.g., you want to raise money for running in a marathon), (ii) a particular charity, or (iii) for other purposes. We may collect information from you surrounding the charitable event or your request for donations. In addition, if you donate to a particular Event/cause, we may collect your name, contact information and credit card information.
Contests, Surveys and Questionnaires. When you sign up for contests, or complete questionnaires or surveys, we collect the information you submit to us. We use this information to administer the contest or survey, to analyze the results, for research purposes, to send you other information or offers we think may be of interest to you, to comply with legal requirements, and for other purposes as discussed in this Policy.
User Comments and Posts. Our Sites and Applications may allow users to post content, such as comments, blogs, and messages. If you post content to our Sites, we may collect and use that information. You should also note that such information may be viewed by other members and public visitors to our Sites. Therefore, you should have no expectation of privacy in the information you post to the Sites.
We also may collect information, including personally identifiable information, about you from our affiliates and non-affiliated third parties. For example, where permitted by law, we may share information we collect about you among affiliates to identify products and services that we believe might be of interest to you. As another example, if you register for a race by clicking through our Sites, we may obtain your name and contact information from the sponsor of the race; when the race is over, we also may obtain your race time.
We use the information that we gather about you for the following purposes:
We may share your information, including personally identifiable information, with other Racemine users and non-affiliated and affiliated third parties.
Disabling Cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them in future. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your computer from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Visitors to our Sites who disable their web browsers' ability to accept cookies will be able to browse the Sites; however, many site features, such as the shopping cart, will not function if you disable cookies.
We and our third party service providers may use Flash Local Storage Objects ("Flash LSOs") in order to store your Site preferences, to personalize your visit or to display content based upon what you view on our Site. Flash LSOs are different from browser cookies because of the amount and type of data stored. In addition, you cannot control, delete or disable the acceptance of Flash LSOs through your browser. For more information on Flash LSOs, or to learn how to manage your settings for Flash cookies, go to the Adobe Flash Player Help Page, choose "Global Storage Settings Panel" and follow the instructions. To see the Flash LSOs currently on your computer, choose "Website Storage Settings Panel" and follow the instructions to review and, if you choose, to delete any specific Flash LSO.
We use web beacons, such as clear GIFs, web bugs or pixel tags, which are tiny graphics with a unique identifier similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer's hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web pages. We may use clear GIFs in connection with our Sites to, among other things, track the activities of website visitors, help us manage content, and compile statistics about website usage. We and our third party service providers also use clear GIFs in HTML e-mails to our customers, to help us track e-mail response rates, measure the success of our marketing campaigns, identify when our e-mails are viewed and track whether our e-mails are forwarded.
As noted, Racemine works with third party service providers who use the technologies described in this section to conduct website analytics to help us track and understand how visitors use our Sites. For example, we use a variety of third party web analytics, to help us improve our Sites' performance and user experiences.
We may use third parties such as network advertisers to serve advertisements on our Sites. Please see the section entitled "Advertising" for additional information about our practices and your choices with regard to receiving such advertisements.
Third party applications may be available on our Sites. The owners or providers of those third party applications may collect personally identifiable information from you. Their collection of information is bound by their own information collection policies and practices. We are not responsible for the collection and use of your information by third parties.
We display advertisements on our Sites. Some of the advertisements are based on the collection of personal information and others are based on the collection of aggregate information. Please see the bottom of this section for opt-out information.
You may opt-out of many third-party ad networks. The website http://www.networkadvertising.org/optout_nonppii.asp provides information regarding this practice by Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI") members, and your choices regarding having this information used by these companies, including how to "opt-out" of third-party ad networks operated by NAI members. You also may contact About Ads at http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ for information about opting out of targeted advertising and your choices regarding having information used by About Ads member companies, including how to "opt-out" of third-party ad networks operated by About Ads members. Opting out of one or more NAI members or About Ad members (many of which will be the same) only means that those members no longer will deliver targeted content or ads to you, but it does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content or ads on our Sites or other websites. You may continue to receive advertisements, for example, based on the particular website that you are viewing. Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you visit this opt-out page, or you subsequently erase your cookies, use a different computer or change web browsers, your NAI or About Ad opt-out may no longer, be effective. Additional information is available on NAI's and About Ad's websites accessible by the above links.
