CoachGrader Privacy Policy

The bottom line is that CoachGrader will NOT release your personal information without your consent.


Earning the trust of our users is one of CoachGrader's primary goals. We take your privacy very seriously, and we want you to feel absolutely comfortable using our site. Our Privacy Policy answers the following questions:


What information do you collect, how is it collected and how do you use it?
How is my privacy protected when I leave comments?
How will I know if you change your privacy policy?
What kind of security measures do you take?
What are the limits of your Privacy Policy?
How do I opt-out of your communication lists?
How can I change my personal information?
What if I have more questions?
How can I be sure that you adhere to your Privacy Policy?

What information do you collect, how is it collected and how do you use it?

Anyone can visit our site free of charge. You are welcome to browse our coaches and read comments without ever giving us your individual information. But we do need to gather some information about users who wish to submit grades and comments. We collect information in two ways: directly from you and through the use of "cookies".

First, if you want to grade a coach, we will ask you to provide some personal information. If you have already registered, you know that the information we require is very basic: your e-mail address, a password, and your gender.


One of the reasons we ask for your e-mail address is so that we can communicate with you and possibly send you the latest information about CoachGrader. You can opt-out of receiving correspondence from us by selecting that option when you register. If you don't want to hear from us, we promise to leave you alone!


Second, when you register with CoachGrader, a "cookie" may be placed on your computer. Cookies are bits of information that a web site places on your computer's hard drive for record-keeping and activity-tracking purposes. Cookies cannot be used to learn your identity unless you have previously provided that information to that web site or your web browser automatically provides that information.


In conjunction with the registration information you provide, cookies help us recognize you when you return to the site, and they let you avoid having to log-in each time you visit. In addition, it allows us to do other things that increase the usefulness of the site. This includes personalizing our service so the content we show you better matches your interests. Eventually our system will be able to make guesses about your interests based on the parts of the site you visit, and the grades you submit. We also collect log files that identify information such as IP address, browser type, domain name, referral URL, country of origin, pages visited, entry points, and exit points, but we do NOT link those files to personally identifying information.


Of course, notwithstanding anything in this policy to the contrary, we will provide personal information if we are or believe that we are legally required to do so pursuant to a subpoena, warrant, other legal method or applicable law.


How is my privacy protected when I leave comments?

One of the great features of CoachGrader is that we allow you, as a user, to leave comments - not just grades - so you can explain your opinions in some detail. Please remember that when you post your comments they are publicly available, so you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose anything personal about yourself.


How will I know if you change your privacy policy?

This privacy policy may be revised over time as new features are added to the Web site. We will post those changes prominently so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose it to anyone. If we are going to use your personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify you via e-mail. You will have a choice as to whether or not we use your information in this different manner. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect user information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our web site notifying users of the change. In some cases where we post the notice we will also e-mail users, who have opted to receive communications from us, notifying them of the changes in our privacy practices.


What kind of security measures do you take?

Any information you provide, other than information you chose to provide and make publicly available in your posts, is maintained and accessible only by us, and only by those of our employees with a need to have access to such information in the performance of their work. This site has instituted commercially reasonable security measures to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control or in our possession. All data stores are held behind a commercial grade firewall and are only enabled through an encrypted multi-protocol pipe. All open ports and protocols have been closed on the Web servers excluding http, https, and outbound smtp mail. In addition, all user accounts are restricted to specific algorithms noting both length and complexity. Unfortunately, data transmission over the Internet can not be guaranteed to be totally secure. Additionally, we use an outside company to display ads on our site. These ads may contain cookies. While we use cookies in other parts of our Web site, cookies received with banner ads are collected by our ad company, and we do not have access to this information. Therefore, although we take measures, such as those described in this Privacy Policy, to protect your personal information, we can not warrant the security of information that you provide. Accordingly, you agree that you are providing such information at your own risk.


What are the limits of your Privacy Policy?

The CoachGrader Web site contains hyperlinks and advertisements that, if activated in the manner provided by your browser, will cause your browser to access and display the contents of other Web sites. CoachGrader does not control or have any knowledge concerning the provisions of the privacy policies, if any, of those sites. Accordingly, CoachGrader is not responsible for the privacy practices or any of the content of those Web sites and CoachGrader's Privacy Policy does not apply to those other sites. If you choose to activate a hyperlink to another Web site, you do so at your own risk and you may wish to review that site's privacy policy.


How do I opt-out of your communication lists?

As mentioned previously, CoachGrader provides users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us and our partners during the registration process. Users can also remove themselves from our e-mailing list by writing to us at support@coachgrader.com.


How can I change my personal information?

Users can modify their personal information by accessing my account or sending an email to support@coachgrader.com.


What if I have more questions?

If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of this site, or your dealings with this Web site, please send an e-mail to support@coachgrader.com.


How can I be sure that you adhere to your Privacy Policy?

If for any reason you believe that CoachGrader has not adhered to the principles contained in this Privacy Policy, please notify us at support@coachgrader.com. We will do our best to address your concerns and to confirm and correct the problem promptly.


Acceptance of Terms.

By using this site you acknowledge and agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy. If you disagree with any term or condition in this Privacy Policy, you must not use our site.


CoachGrader reserves the right to make changes to this policy. We will notify you about significant changes in the way we treat personal information by sending a notice to the primary email address specified in your CoachGrader account or by placing a prominent notice on our site.
