Online ordering, customer registration, and customer feedback pages of this website are directed toward and designed for use by persons aged 13 or older. We establish or maintain registrations for children under the age of 13 only if we have received such registrations from a parent or legal guardian. We use such registration information solely in connection with the applicable races and do not distribute such information to any third parties. We do not otherwise solicit or knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If we discover that we have received personally identifiable information from an individual who indicates that he or she is, or whom we otherwise have reason to believe is, under the age of 13, we will delete such information from our systems. In addition, parents or legal guardians of a child may contact us as provided below at any time to request that we remove registration information related to such child from our systems.
If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses.
We request information from customers on our merchandise order forms (such as name and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number and expiration date). This information is used to fill customers’ orders and process payment. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the customer. Customers’ names and addresses may be shared with third parties as necessary to process, fulfill or ship orders, Financial information is not shared outside our organization, except as necessary to process the order.
Web Site Use Information
Similar to other commercial Web sites, our Web site utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” (see explanation below, “What Are Cookies?”) and Web server logs to collect information about how our Web site is used. Information gathered through cookies and Web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our Web site, and the Web sites visited just before and just after our Web site. We, our advertisers and ad serving companies may also use small pieces of code called “web beacons” or “clear gifs” to determine which advertisements and promotions users have seen and how users responded to them.
How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?
Broadly speaking, we use personal information for purposes of administering and expanding our business activities, providing customer service, and making available other products and services to our customers and prospective customers. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our Web site and new services and special offers we think you will find valuable. You may notify us at any time if you do not wish to receive these offers by emailing us at info©twincitiesmarathon.org.
What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a Web site, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each Web site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browsers preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a Web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?
As you shop on our Web site, the site uses its cookies to differentiate you from other shoppers so your shopping cart is only available to you. Cookies, in conjunction with our Web server’s log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our Web site and which parts of the site are most popular. This helps us gather feedback in order to constantly improve our Web site and better serve our customers. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not generally store any personal information that you provided to us in your cookies.
Do We Provide Links to Third-Party Web Sites?
We may provide links to third-party Web sites as a service to our users. In that event, we cannot control and are not responsible for the information collection or use practices of such third-party Web sites, which may differ from our Web site. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Web site and to read the privacy statements of each Web site to which we may link that may collect personally identifiable information.
Sharing Information with Third Parties
We may enter into alliances, partnerships, or other business arrangements with a photography company who may be given access to personal information including your name and email for the purpose of providing you with access to race photographs and related products that we think will be of interest to you. We also use third parties to facilitate our business, including, but not limited to, processing credit card payments. In connection with these offerings and business operations, these third parties may have access to your personal information for use in connection with business activities. As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer, email, and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions. We may also transfer such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, or any dissolution.
