We Protect Kids’ Privacy:
As a parent, you've probably done a lot of thinking about protecting your family's privacy on the Internet. Well, we've been thinking about it, too. We are working hard to provide you with the best information and the highest quality interaction on the Internet in an environment that is safe. In compliance with COPPA (Children's Online Privacy Protection Act), we have adopted the following policies to keep kids safe:
1. We will NOT knowingly collect, use or distribute personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 without prior verifiable consent from a parent or guardian.
2. We will NOT knowingly collect, use or distribute personally identifiable information from teens between the ages of 13 and 17 without first notifying a parent or guardian.
3. Personally identifiable information we collect from children under the age of 13 will be used solely by The Ohio Booster Club Association or its agents for internal purposes only and will not be sold or otherwise distributed to third parties.
4. We will NOT knowingly allow a child under the age of 13 access to chat rooms, message boards, e-mail accounts, or other services within our website that would allow them to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally identifiable information without prior verifiable consent from a parent or guardian.
5. We will NOT knowingly allow a teen between the ages of 13 and 17 access to chat rooms, message boards, e-mail accounts, or other services within our website that would allow them to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally identifiable information without first notifying a parent or guardian.
6. We will NOT knowingly ask a child or teen to divulge more information than is needed to participate in any activity, game, or service.
7. We will NOT knowingly provide any direct link to Website's that are unsuitable for children or teens.
The Ohio Booster Club Association will not advertise on any site that does not comply with the regulations set forth under COPPA.
8. We will advise children under the age of 13 that they MUST obtain permission from their parent or guardian before sharing ANY personal information.
9. Upon request, the Ohio Booster Club Association will provide a parent or guardian with a description of the information that may have been provided about their child or teen during a registration process for a program or service of this site.The Ohio Booster Club Association only asks for a child's or teen’s personal information if it is necessary for registration to participate a program or service. Registration data that is provided about children or teens is not used for marketing and is never shared with any other party. If you would like to view your child's registration data, request a change, or request that we delete any of your child's personal information, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org which includes your child's first and last name, school zip code, and your first and last name.
10. The Ohio Booster Club Association encourages parents and guardians to spend time online with their children. We urge parents to instruct their children to never give out their real names, addresses or phone numbers, without permission, when using the Internet. We recognize a special obligation to protect personal information obtained from children.
Notification and Verifiable Parental Consent:
Certain areas and activities within our website ask visitors under the age of 18 to provide personal information such as their name, date of birth, e-mail address or school name. We only ask for the information that is necessary to participate in the particular activity.
Before any personally identifiable information is collected, we will do our best to notify the parent or guardian that their child or teen is participating. Notification will include the exact nature and intended use of the information we are collecting, as well as the opportunity for the parent or guardian to prevent the use of the information and the child's participation in the activity. If the child is under 13 years of age we require the parent or guardian to provide verifiable parental consent such as an e-mail, mail-in letter, fax or toll free phone call to the Ohio Booster Club Association. If the individual is a teen between the ages of 13 and 17, the Ohio Booster Club Association will notify the parent or guardian that their teen is participating and sharing personal information but we do not require consent.
When verifiable parental consent has not yet been obtained, we will use online contact information (such as an e-mail address) only as is appropriate to:
1. Request the name or online contact information of a parent or guardian for the purpose of obtaining verifiable parental consent or providing notification to the parent or guardian;
2. Respond directly to the child's or teen’s request on a one-time basis (for example, to provide assistance with a particular study question), not using that information to re-contact the child or teen for any other purpose;
3. Respond more than once directly to a specific request from the child (for example, to satisfy the request for a newsletter subscription), not using that information to re-contact the child or teen for any other purpose.
What are Cookies?
The non-personally identifiable information we track with cookies is anonymous and is not used to identify, or lead us back to, any particular visitor. Visitors to our website may have the option of disabling cookies via their browser preferences (most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies).
While browsing through our website, you may get cookies from our advertisers or sponsors. The Ohio Booster Club Association and its affiliated sites do not control these cookies.
What are IP Addresses?
An IP address is a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you use the World Wide Web. Web servers--the big computers that "serve up" Web pages--automatically identify your computer by its IP address.
Our website collects IP addresses for system administration; to report aggregate information to our advertisers, sponsors, and partners; and to audit the use of our site. When visitors request pages from Booster Central, our servers log the guests' IP addresses. We normally do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that a visitor's session will be logged, but the visitor remains anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a visitor when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our rules or terms of service, or to protect our service, site, customers, or other individuals.
Some features within our website, such as certain message boards, may display IP addresses along with the message-poster's visitor name and message. You should review each feature prior to use and only use those that disclose information you are comfortable sharing.

Additionally, you'll see links from advertisers, sponsors, and other partners who may use the Ohio Booster Club Association’s logo as part of a co-branding agreement.
In many cases, these links represent cooperative projects or mutual links established with the organizations connected with these sites. We don't control the content of these links. These other sites may send you their own cookies, collect data, or solicit personal information. While we identify sponsor and advertiser areas of our website's, we do not control these cookies or the content of these third parties.
We specifically recommend that children check with their parents or teachers before clicking on to any new sites.
The Ohio Booster Club Association makes chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or news groups available to its users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information. Consequently, you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information.
Security and Financial Transaction Use:
The Ohio Booster Club Association has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Essentially, we encrypt all transmission of sensitive data and secure all of our repositories of data. When you use your credit card or check to shop at our website, your transaction is secure. Our servers use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), an advanced encryption technology that works with Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 3.0 and above), and AOL (AOL 3.0 and above). This technology safeguards your personal information and privacy. However, you should understand that "perfect security" is never guaranteed.
