Privacy Policy

BFHA Web site Policy

This statement discloses the privacy practices for the entire web site.

The Baltimore Field Hockey Association (BFHA) may collect implicit information on an anonymous basis from users who visit our web site, for aggregate statistical analysis and site customization. Implicit information is data that we can gather about the user without asking them. Importantly, aggregate statistical analysis means that BFHA reviews trends based on information as a whole, but does not do so in an effort to identify the individual identity of the visitor to its site.

We also may solicit email for site feedback or request for information inquiries. BFHA may use this information for future marketing but does not disclose the information solicited from our web site to third parties or affiliates.

IP addresses may be logged to track a user's session. An IP address is the unique numerical identity of your computer. When we "log" an IP address, it means that our web site associates a visit or series of visits to that unique numerical identity.

BFHA may also use cookies in order to assist in aggregate statistical analysis and sometimes provide site customization based on anonymous session tracking. BFHA uses cookies to determine trends for users as a whole, but not as means to learn about your individual identity. Cookies, by themselves, cannot be used to determine the actual identity of users. On their own, they can be used to identify a computer, but not who is using that computer. Because of this, if BFHA customizes the site based on cookies, we won't know who you are unless you tell us.

Any personal information that you voluntarily provide to us, such as site registration information, will be collected and used by us on an internal basis only. Unless we tell you otherwise at the point on the site where the information is collected, we do not share any personal information about you with third parties or affiliates. While BFHA may use third party vendors for processes such as online tournament registration, BFHA uses information collected only for internal use. Users must read the privacy policies of third party vendor web sites to determine the policies of those sites and vendors; BFHA is not responsible for the practices of the third party vendor sites.

BFHA collects the visitor's domain name (e.g. whether the user is logged on from ""), referral data (e.g. we record the last URL a user visited prior to clicking to BFHA), as well as browser and platform type (e.g., a Microsoft browser on a Macintosh platform). We also count, track, and aggregate the visitor's activity into our analysis of general traffic flows at our sites (e.g., tracking where traffic comes from, how traffic flows within

We will never share your personal information with any third party; however, information may be transferred to another company if you have completed a process through that vendor’s web site such as event registration. Access to personal information is limited to our board members and agents with a need to access such information for the purposes set forth in this privacy policy. We will not use your personal information other than as set forth above without your consent.

We reserve the right to change, add, or remove portions from this privacy policy at any time. However, if any change involves a plan to use your personal information in a way that differs from this privacy policy, we will first obtain your prior consent. When your consent is required for any action under this privacy policy, you agree that BFHA may obtain your consent by an "opt-in" or "opt-out" method, or by other means (such as sending to you an email).

All photographs and contact on this web site are the sole use of BFHA and cannot be used or duplicated without the written permission of BFHA. BFHA strives to protect the images and likeness of individuals used on this site.
