1. Electronic newsletters policy (Dispatches)

We will offer a free electronic newsletter to users. HockeyShare LLC gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe. Users may remove themselves from the mailing list by following the link provided in every newsletter that points users to the subscription management page. Users can also subscribe to the newsletters at the time of registration. For the protection of your privacy and to help prevent accidental or unwanted registration, uses a double-opt-in subscription policy. Simply stated this means that the user will receive an email after signing up. The user must click the activation link to confirm his/her subscription to the list. If a user fails to confirm their subscription, they may be removed from the subscription database.

In order to subscribe to the newsletter, the following personal information must be provided:

2. Message boards/forums policy

Users of the site's Message Boards and Forums must register (free) in order to post messages, although they needn't register to visit the site. During registration the user is required to supply a username, password, and email address. Before a user is able to use their account, they must verify their email address is valid. Our message board system will send a randomly generated password to the email address entered at registration. This practice helps us reduce the number of fake/spam accounts. Additional policy information may be available during the registration process.

3. "E-mail this to a friend" policy

Our site users can choose to electronically forward a link, page, or documents to someone else by clicking "e-mail this to a friend". The user must provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient. This information is used only in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the email. The information is not used for any other purpose.

4. Polling

We may offer interactive polls to users so they can easily share their opinions with other users and see what our audience thinks about important issues. Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular user. HockeyShare LLC may use a system to "tag" users after they have voted, so they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with information about individual users.

5. Surveys

HockeyShare LLC may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our sponsors, advertisers and partners. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.
