Privacy Notice

Last updated: 06/28/22

We know that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. This Privacy Notice describes how WORLD SPORTS collect and process your personal information through our website. By using our website or services, you are consenting to the practices described in this Privacy Notice.

What Personal Information About Customers Are Collected?

We collect your personal information in order to provide and continually improve our products and services.

Here are the types of personal information we collect:

  • Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you provide in relation to our service. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our services.

  • Automatic Information: We automatically collect and store certain types of information about your use of our services, including information about your interaction with content and services. Like many websites, we use "cookies" and other unique identifiers, and we obtain certain types of information when your web browser or device accesses our website and other content served by or on behalf of WORLD SPORTS on other websites.

  • Information from Other Sources: We might receive information about you from other sources, such as updated delivery and address information from our carriers, which we use to correct our records and deliver your next purchase more easily. 

For What Purposes Do We Use Your Personal Information?

We use your personal information to operate, provide, develop, and improve the products and services that we offer our customers. These purposes include:

  • Purchase and delivery of products and services. We use your personal information to take and handle orders, deliver products and services, process payments, and communicate with you about orders, products and services, and promotional offers.

  • Provide, troubleshoot, and improve services. We use your personal information to provide functionality, analyze performance, fix errors, and improve the usability and effectiveness of our services.

  • Recommendations and personalization. We use your personal information to recommend features, products, and services that might be of interest to you, identify your preferences, and personalize your experience.

  • Comply with legal obligations. In certain cases, we collect and use your personal information to comply with laws. For instance, we collect from sellers information regarding place of establishment and bank account information for identity verification and other purposes.

  • Communicate with you. We use your personal information to communicate with you in relation to our service via different channels (e.g., by phone, email, chat).

  • Advertising. We use your personal information to display interest-based ads for features, products, and services that might be of interest to you. We do not use information that personally identifies you to display interest-based ads.

  • Fraud Prevention and Credit Risks. We use personal information to prevent and detect fraud and abuse in order to protect the security of our customers, WORLD SPORTS, and others. We may also use scoring methods to assess and manage credit risks.

What About Cookies and Other Identifiers? 

We use cookies, pixels, and other technologies (collectively, "cookies") to recognize your browser or device, learn more about your interests, and provide you with essential features and services and for additional purposes, including:

  • Recognizing you when you sign-in to use our services. This allows us to provide you with product recommendations, display personalized content, and provide other customized features and services.

  • Keeping track of your specified preferences. This allows us to honor your preferences, such as whether or not you would like to see interest-based ads. 

  • Conducting research and diagnostics to improve our content, products, and services.

  • Preventing fraudulent activity.

  • Improving security.

  • Delivering content, including ads, relevant to your interests on our website and third-party sites.

  • Reporting. This allows us to measure and analyze the performance of our services.

Approved third parties may also set cookies when you interact with WORLD SPORTS services. Third parties include search engines, providers of measurement and analytics services, social media networks, and advertising companies. Third parties use cookies in the process of delivering content, including ads relevant to your interests, to measure the effectiveness of their ads, and to perform services on behalf of WORLD SPORTS.

You can manage browser cookies through your browser settings. The 'Help' feature on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, how to block cookies, and when cookies will expire. If you block all cookies on your browser, neither we nor third parties will transfer cookies to your browser. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some features and services may not work.

 

Do We Share Your Personal Information?

Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling our customers' personal information to others. We share customers' personal information only as described below and with our subsidiaries that either are subject to this Privacy Notice or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Notice.

  • Transactions involving Third Parties: We make available to you services, products, applications, or skills provided by third parties for use on or through our services. You can tell when a third party is involved in your transactions, and we share customers' personal information related to those transactions with that third party.

  • Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy other businesses or services. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that WORLD SPORTS, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.

  • Protection of WORLD SPORTS and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; or protect the rights, property, or safety of WORLD SPORTS, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

 

Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when personal information about you might be shared with third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.

How Secure Is Information About Me?

We design our systems with your security and privacy in mind.

  • We work to protect the security of your personal information during transmission by using encryption protocols and software. 

  • We follow the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) when handling credit card data. 

  • We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage, and disclosure of customer personal information. Our security procedures mean that we may ask to verify your identity before we disclose personal information to you.

  • It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computers, devices, and applications. We recommend using a unique password for your WORLD SPORTS account that is not used for other online accounts. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer. 

 

What Choices Do I Have? 

If you have any questions as to how we collect and use your personal information, please contact our Customer Service.

  • If you do not want to receive email or other communications from us, please contact our Customer Service.

  • If you do not want to see interest-based ads, please contact our Customer Service. 

  • The Help feature on most browsers and devices will tell you how to prevent your browser or device from accepting new cookies or other identifiers, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to block cookies altogether. Because cookies and identifiers allow you to take advantage of some essential features of our services, we recommend that you leave them turned on. 

  • If you want to browse our websites without linking the browsing history to your account, you may do so by logging out of your account and blocking cookies on your browser.

 

In addition, to the extent required by applicable law, you may have the right to request access to or delete your personal information. If you wish to do any of these things, contact our Customer Service. Depending on your data choices, certain services may be limited or unavailable.

Conditions of Use, Notices, and Revisions 

 

If you choose to use our services, your use and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Notice, including limitations on damages, resolution of disputes, and application of the law of the state of FLORIDA. If you have any concern about privacy at WORLD SPORTS, please contact us with a thorough description, and we will try to resolve it. Our business changes constantly, and our Privacy Notice will change also. You should check our website frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Notice applies to all information that we have about you and your account. We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.
