WHAT INFORMATION DOES SIGNUP4CHESS GATHER?
The Signup4Chess Service User Registration Information

In order to use the Signup4Chess service, you must establish an account with us. During the registration process, we require entry of certain “Personally Identifiable Information” such as your own e-mail address, billing information etc. We also may ask you to answer a few questions about your system speed and connectivity to the Internet.
As a matter of policy, we do not share your e-mail address with 3rd parties. All such promotional e-mail, if any, will come directly from Signup4Chess.
You may view and make changes to your account information, including these options, at any time.

As noted, if our plans regarding your Personally Identifiable Information change, we will provide you with a prominent notice on our web site, and give you an opportunity to delete your Personally Identifiable Information from our records.

Signup4Chess does not share with promotional partners the Personally Identifiable Information for any child accounts, regardless of age. We do not sell or rent access to your e-mail addresses.

Your Use of the Signup4Chess Web Site.

Your participation and our ability to provide quality customer service depends on our ability to verify account activity. In order to do this, we collect certain information about your Internet connection. Accordingly, each time you login to our service, Signup4Chess collects your Internet Protocol (IP) address, and the date and time of your login. Certain other information in the form of “cookies” is stored on your PC to facilitate login.

Message Storage in the Signup4Chess Database

Technical personnel at Signup4Chess have access to the database for administrative purposes only. It is possible that hackers may attack the Signup4Chess web system or intercept web communication across the Internet, and thereby gain access directly or indirectly to personal information and messages. We make a reasonable effort to protect our systems, however web system vulnerabilities and database vulnerabilities are myriad and constantly evolving. There can be no assurance that our system will not be compromised somehow by a malicious or inadvertent attack.

HOW SIGNUP4CHESS USES INFORMATION IT COLLECTS

As noted, most of the information Signup4Chess collects is gathered for purposes of providing you with the Signup4Chess service. In addition, Signup4Chess may aggregate data it collects on the use of the service to improve and maintain the service, or for broad, demographic marketing activities. Such uses will not disclose any of your Personally Identifiable Information.

The Personally Identifiable Information you provide to us is currently being used only to allow Signup4Chess to correspond with you. This non-disclosure policy applies also to any Personally Identifiable Information you supply during interactions with our customer service department. If our policy changes, of course we will notify you of that change by e-mail and via a prominent notice on our web site.

SIGNUP4CHESS DATA SECURITY POLICIES

We take special security measures to protect the Personally Identifiable Information that we store. This means, for example, that we use appropriate software and hardware tools to protect our computers against unauthorized access. Passwords are stored in a cryptographically secure format. We also prohibit our employees from accessing your Personally Identifiable Information except on a need to know basis, and even then only under confidentiality agreements. Our engineers review the security measures on a regular basis to update and strengthen these protections.

  • Signup4Chess will reveal information, including Personally Identifiable Information, to the extent it reasonably believes it is required to do so by law. If we receive legal process calling for the disclosure of any of your Personally Identifiable Information we will, if permitted by law, attempt to notify you via the e-mail address you supplied during registration at least ten days before we respond to the request.

  • Signup4Chess may transfer information it collects, including any Personally Identifiable Information, in the course of a sale of all or most of the assets of the company.

  • Signup4Chess may also disclose your Personally Identifiable Information with your express consent. If we seek that consent, we will do so unambiguously, explaining precisely what information we seek to disclose, and the purpose for the disclosure.

  • We may reveal a user's identity (or whatever information we know about that individual) if we believe that user is harming or interfering with other Signup4Chess users, anyone else, or any of Signup4Chess's rights or property.

CHANGING AND DELETING INFORMATION

Signup4Chess is committed to ensuring that you have appropriate control over your information. Your e-mail address and other registration information can be easily changed at the Signup4Chess web-site.

If you are no longer an account holder and you would like to delete your Personally Identifiable Information (including your e-mail address), you can send an e-mail request to us. Your Personally Identifiable Information will be deleted unless we are under a legal obligation to retain it.
