SITE NOTE TO PARENTS
- The organizations collecting the information
The Site is developed and operated by Portland Arena Management (“PAM”). Certain sections of the Site are operated by third parties (collectively, the "Third Party Sections"). Each of these Third Party Sections is subject to the additional privacy policies of the companies that collect data through these Third Party Sections. Please refer to the section entitled "Special policies applicable to Third Party Sections" below for more information.
The information collected on the Site is collected on behalf of, and may be shared with, PAM and its affiliates.
- What personally identifiable information is collected
As stated above, the Site does not knowingly solicit any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. Please review our Note to Parents, if you have any questions regarding our Policy with respect to children.
With respect to persons age 13 or older, the Site collects personally identifiable information required to participate in certain Site features and transactions. This information may vary but will typically include your first and last name; address including city, state, zip code and country; complete date of birth; and e-mail address. In case you are making purchases online, a credit card number (including CID number) and expiration date may be required as well as shipping, billing and other information you provide to purchase or ship an item and other transactional information based on your purchase activities on the Site. You may also be requested to provide a unique member name and password to access and use certain features of the site.
In addition, the Site may solicit from time to time your opinion to determine your preferences and dislikes in order to provide you with a better product or offering. These surveys are always optional, and your decision not to participate in a survey will not affect your status as a Site user.
The Site also may collect non-personally identifiable information, including traffic statistics regarding page views; other technical information, including IP address and standard web log information; and supplemental information from third parties. The Site also uses web beacons and other similar technology to track certain general usage pattern information, such as the web pages people visit within the Site. The Site also may log users' Internet Protocol (IP) addresses (the group of four numbers separated by periods, such as 126.96.36.199, that identifies a particular host computer) for the purposes of system administration, providing certain site functionality and content, site tracking and collecting and reporting aggregate usage information. We may combine this and other non-personally identifiable information with the personally identifiable information that we have collected.
- How personally identifiable and other information is used
- With whom the information may be shared
As indicated above, the Site may disclose personally identifiable information to PAM and its affiliates. From time to time, the Site may share personally identifiable information with third parties we have engaged to perform certain services in connection with the operation of certain aspects of the Site, including to customize, measure, and improve our services, content, and layout. Except with respect to the Third Party Sections, these third party service providers who have access to your personally identifiable information are authorized to use this information only in a manner consistent with this Policy.
PAM has several sponsors and other business partners that can offer valuable products and services to our users. The Site will not disclose your e-mail address to these partners, unless you have indicated that you wish to receive information, special offers or promotions from third parties via e-mail. From time to time, the Site may share or provide non-identifiable aggregated information to these partners, and, in addition, the Site may provide them with mailing address and other information so that they may extend offers to you.

- The kind of security procedures that are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control
The Site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under its control. The servers for the Site that contain personally identifiable information are stored in a physically secure and climate controlled off-site facility. Beyond the physical protection of the servers, we protect against data loss by backing up data, performing consistency checks, and restricting access to information on our servers. When receiving financial information, our site uses SSL or "Secure Sockets Layer," an industry standard security protocol. Other features, like email and contact us are not encrypted. When providing sensitive information on the Internet, you should also look at your browser to determine whether SSL technology is being employed (usually indicated by a image of a lock in the browser frame). In addition, only those trained employees needed to carry out our business functions will be authorized to have access to information on individual Site customers.
It is important to remember that whatever you transmit or disclose online can be collected and used by others or unlawfully intercepted by third parties. No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.
Your Site membership account is password protected. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. At no time will any Site employee ask for your password via e-mail. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your member names, passwords and/or other account information.
Any information voluntarily disclosed by users and posted on our site (on message boards, web logs, and/or in chat areas) may be viewed and used by others. If users post personal information that is accessible to the public online, the user does so at his or her own risk. Users accept that they may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.
- How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information

You also will have the option to correct any inaccuracies in your site membership account or other registration by returning to the registration area and updating your profile and preferences or re-registering.

LAST UPDATED: June 4, 2008
It is the Site's policy not to knowingly solicit any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. A number of interactive features on the Site require registration to participate (e.g., e-mail newsletters, site registration). All registrants will be required to enter their full name, date of birth, complete address and e-mail address. In some cases, users will be required to select a special member name to be used as an identifier for the feature and must also enter a password and a secret hint that will help us verify their identity if they forget their password. If the Site determines that a person is under the age of 13, based on the information provided during the registration process, that person will not be permitted to register for features requiring the submission of personal information. Instead, when a child under 13 years old tries to register for such features on the Site, he or she will be directed to content which does not involve the submission of personal information. Children who indicate that they are under 13 years old will not be able to make credit card purchases or participate in interactive features on the Site that involve the collection and retention of personal information (e.g., entering a sweepstakes) and they will not be contacted about special offers or promotions.
The Site works with (and may provide links to) third party sites that offer features described on the Site. Registration for these features is pursuant to the privacy policies of the third parties operating the web sites on which registration occurs. Such third party sites may permit children under the age of 13 to register for these features on their sites in accordance with the privacy policies posted on those sites. The operators of those third party sites are responsible for ensuring that their sites comply with applicable laws, regulations, and rues. For more information, please review the privacy policies of each respective third party site.
