Vinik Sports Group collects personal information from parents about their children through the Services to provide parents and children with access to the benefits that the parents have requested. You are sharing personal information with Vinik Sports Group when you register yourself and your children through certain portions of the Services.

Only parents may register their children on the Services; therefore, Vinik Sports Group does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13.

When you provide personal information about your children through certain portions of the Services, that personal information is collected and maintained by Vinik Sports Group and, depending on the functionality of the service or program, by third parties under contract with Vinik Sports Group. Those third parties are contractually obligated to keep such personal information confidential and secure.

Please contact us if you have any questions about our Child Privacy Notice


6. YOUR RIGHTS

Depending on where you live, you may have certain rights with respect to your information. To the extent applicable law grants you the right to do so, and subject to any necessary verification, you may have the right to:
• request that we provide you with a copy of the personal information which we hold about you;
• request that we update any of your personal information which are inaccurate or incomplete;
• request that we delete any of your personal information which we are holding; or
• request that we provide your personal information to you or a third-party provider of services in a structured, commonly-used and machine-readable format

Vinik Sports Group may require you to verify your identity before Vinik Sports Group acts on any request. We may require further documentation such as a password and user ID before granting access to your information.

Vinik Sports Group may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), threaten the privacy of others, or are extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems). Where Vinik Sports Group can provide information access and modification or deletion, Vinik Sports Group will endeavor to do so without charge, unless fulfilling the request would require a disproportionate effort by Vinik Sports Group.

Some Services can only be provided if we have your information, therefore deletion of your information will result in termination of such Services. Please note that Vinik Sports Group may need to keep certain of your information for legitimate business or legal purposes.

Your rights and our responses will vary based on your state or country of residency. Please note that you may be located in a jurisdiction where we are not obligated, or are unable, to fulfill a request. In such a case, your request may not be fulfilled.

To the extent our activities are subject to international data protection laws that specify limited legal grounds to process your information, the legal bases for our processing activities are to perform our contract(s) with you; to meet our legal obligations; and for our legitimate business purposes, including to improve our operations and Services, detect and prevent fraud, and enforce our Terms. We rely on your consent to send you direct marketing messages about our products, services and promotions and to deliver targeted advertisements to you, both on and off the Services. If you do not provide certain information to us, we may, in some circumstances, be unable to comply with our obligations or provide you with the services that you request. We will tell you about the implications of not providing certain information.
We retain personal information for only as long as we need it to provide the Services, for purposes described in this Privacy Policy, for our own administration and internal business purposes, and for any periods that are mandated by law, after which, we take steps to delete or anonymize information.

15. YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

This section provides certain disclosures intended to address state law requirements. We have tried to explain our privacy practices in full in the other sections of this Privacy Policy, but the California privacy notice disclosures in this section (“California Privacy Notice”) should be read to supplement those other sections with disclosures designed to conform to specific state law requirements.

California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”)

Consumer Rights
The CCPA entitles California residents to the consumer rights explained in the sections below entitled “Right to Know,” “Right to Request Deletion,” “Right to Opt-Out of Sale of Personal Information,” and “Right to Non-Discrimination.”

Information about how we may collect, use and share your personal information is explained in the section entitled “Collection, Use, and Sharing of Information.”

For information on contacting us to exercise these rights or for more information, please refer to the section below entitled “How to Submit a Request.”

We hope that this California Privacy Notice provides you with all the information you need to understand your California rights. However, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by any method below in the section entitled, “Contact for More Information.”

Right to Know

You have the right to request that we disclose what personal information we collect, use, disclose, or sell about you. Specifically, for information we collect about you, you may request that we disclose the following to you:

– The categories of personal information we have collected about you.

– The categories of sources from which we collected the personal information.

– The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information.

– The categories of third parties with whom we share personal information.

– The specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you.

In addition, for information that we sell or disclose about you for a business purpose, if any, you may request that we disclose the following to you:

– The categories of personal information that we disclose about you for a business purpose.

 

Right to Request Deletion

You have the right to request that we delete any personal information about you which we have collected from you. If it is necessary for us to maintain the personal information for certain purposes, we are not required to comply with your deletion request. If we determine that we will not delete your personal information when you request us to do so, we will inform you and tell you why we are not deleting it.

 

Right to Opt-Out of Sale of Personal Information

(if applicable)

 

We do not sell your personal information in the traditional sense; however, we may share your information as outlined above. You have the right to direct us not to sell your personal information. To opt-out of the sale of your personal information by us, you may go to our “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” page.

 

Right to Non-Discrimination

 

You have the right not to be discriminated against for exercising your rights under the CCPA. However, we may charge you a different price or rate, or provide a different level or quality of goods or services to you, if that difference is reasonably related to the value provided to you by your data.

Currently, we do not charge a different price or rate or provide a different level or quality of goods or services if you exercise any of your rights under the CCPA.

How to Submit a Request
To exercise the rights described above, you must submit a “verifiable” request to us through any the following ways:
– by contacting us at our Customer Privacy Portal and providing the requested information; or
– calling us at 1-888-607-7572 and providing requested information.

For your request to be verifiable, you will be asked to provide certain information so we may verify your identity. The information we may request for such purpose may differ depending upon the type of consumer request you are making, the type, sensitivity and value of the personal information that is the subject of your request, and the risk of harm that could occur as a result of unauthorized access or deletion, among other factors. We may also require you to provide a written declaration confirming your identity.

If you maintain an online account with us, we may verify your identity for a request through the normal account authentication process, meaning you will need to sign on with your email and password.

We are only required to respond to requests to provide personal information to you twice in any 12-month period.

If we cannot verify your identity, we will not be able to comply with your request. We will inform you if we cannot verify your identity. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
