How do we protect visitor information?

Our website is scanned on a regular basis for security holes and known vulnerabilities in order to make your visit to our site as safe as possible.

Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all sensitive/credit information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

We implement a variety of security measures when a user places an order enters, submits, or accesses their information.

 

What information is made public?

When you create an account, your profile on PaidUp may contain your account name, your athlete’s name, the teams you have participated in and the SelectFund campaigns you have backed. Whenever your account name or your athlete’s name appears on PaidUp (for instance, when you post comments, send messages, or back campaigns), people can click your account name to see your profile. The profile is not searchable on PaidUp or via search engines like Google. Your profile may only be viewed within the context of the team you are participating in.

Here are some of the things that will be publicly viewable on your profile, or elsewhere on PaidUp:

  • the account name and athlete’s name;
  • any information you choose to add to your profile and your athlete’s profile (like a picture, bio, or your location);
  • team(s) your athlete participated in.

We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property, or safety.
