- Personal Information We Collect
For purposes of this Policy, We define “Personal Information” as data about an identified or identifiable individual and recorded in any form. You will have the choice whether or not to disclose Personal Information via this Site or other interactions offline with the MLBPAA; however, some parts of the MLBPAA website and some services may be more difficult or impossible to use if you choose not to disclose Personal Information. For example, sharing Personal Information may be required for certain enhanced interactions with the MLBPAA (e.g., sign up for an event, register for a promotion, make a purchase or publish a comment). The Personal Information we collect may include, but is not limited to:
- Full name,
- Email address,
- Street address,
- Telephone number(s),
- Birth date,
- Payment card information,
- Contacts (as stored in your wireless device).
- How, and for What Purpose, We Use and Share Your Personal Information
- To provide you with information you have requested, or with products, services or content you have purchased, used or otherwise engaged with, (e.g., a sweepstakes, rewards program, subscription to goods or services, etc.) and to communicate with you (including via postal mail) about the same;
- To communicate with you about products, services, sponsors, partners or affiliates related to a purchase you have made or rules or terms to which you have agreed, to the extent the sending of such communication is permissible under applicable law;
- To send you periodic surveys to help improve the MLBPAA or your MLBPAA experience;
- In connection with loyalty, membership or rewards programs operated or accessible from the MLBPAA websites;
- When the personally identifying components of your information are removed, we may use and share such anonymized information for internal purposes (e.g., to learn about the age distribution of our users);
- In accordance with any other permission you provide at the time you submit such information to us; and
- To provide your Personal Information to other third parties where necessary for the purposes set out in this policy.
For customers in the EU, we are required to give you information about the legal basis on which we process your Personal Information. In some cases, such as where you have purchased a service, the processing of your Personal Information will be necessary in order to perform a contract with you. In many other cases, the processing will be necessary for the purpose of legitimate interests we are pursuing, namely the facilitation of the purposes for which your Personal Information is processed as set out above.
- Other Information Collected
Automatically Collected Information. Additionally, we may collect some Personal Information automatically via your use of the MLBPAA website. As you navigate the MLBPAA website, we may also collect information through the use of commonly-used information-gathering tools, such as cookies and web beacons (collectively “Website Navigational Information”). Website Navigational Information includes standard information from your web browser (such as browser type and browser language), your Internet Protocol address, and the actions you take on the MLBPAA website (such as the web pages viewed and the links clicked).
Other Advertising. We share certain data with Social Networks (as defined below) such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Snapchat to allow us to target existing users and customers with highly relevant advertising campaigns. We will not share your name, address, email address or telephone number for the purposes of such campaigns. Instead, a unique code (hashed email address) is shared with the applicable Social Network in order for that identifier to be matched against existing users of the relevant social network and to identify potentially relevant audiences for targeted advertising. We use services such as LinkedIn Matched Audiences and Facebook Custom Audiences for these purposes.
In addition to advertisements for our own goods and services, we may also facilitate third parties to advertise their own goods and services including through targeting those advertisements to those that might be most interested in them. This is done using information which does not include your name, address, email address or telephone number and we won't hand over or sell any of your Personal Information to third party advertisers. In order to provide advertisements relevant to you, your IP address will be used, as well as your operating system and device type. Information about your particular device will be used to show you advertisements which work properly on that device.
- Other Circumstances When Your Data May Be Shared
