1. Information We Collect
Except for the automatically collected information (described below) SSE does not collect personally identifiable information about individual users except when such information is provided on a voluntary basis. For example, personally identifiable information may be gathered from an entry into a promotion, contest or sweepstake, the registration process for subscription sites or services and in connection with content submissions, community postings (e.g., chat and bulletin boards), subscription to newsletters, subscription and use of our text messaging service, suggestions, emails, voting/polling activities and transactions when merchandise or services are ordered or bought. This information may vary but may typically include your name, home address, telephone number, e-mail address, age, date of birth, interests and for purposes such as legal compliance. If you place an order on the SSE Site, we may collect your credit card number (including the CVV code), expiration date, shipping, billing and other information based on your purchase activity on the SSE Site.
Automatically Collected Information:
You also should be aware that non-personal information and data (such as the pages you visit on the SSE Site as well as your IP address) may be automatically collected through the standard operation of SSE’s internet servers or through the use of “cookies”. Cookies are used to identify SSE Site visitors or members so they do not have to re-enter an user ID and password, when, for example, the member wants to post a comment on a discussion board or order merchandise. Cookies help us improve user experience and display more prominently goods and services that might interest you. If you do not have the cookies feature of your browser enabled (and in most, if not all, browsers are enabled by default), you may be required to enter your password each time you access SSE’s Site, or any of the member features and you may not be able to access some information or features on the SSE Site.
2. How We Use The Personally Identifiable And Other Information and Who we may Disclose Such Information to
If you place an order on the SSE Site, we will use your financial information to bill you for products and services or otherwise process your transaction. By making a purchase on the SSE Site, you consent to us providing your financial information to our service providers to process your transactions. These third parties may include credit card companies and banking institutions used to process the transaction.
We may use this information for our internal business purposes, for example, to tailor the SSE Site content or to assess the amount of traffic to the SSE Site. SSE may provide third parties with aggregate statistics about our visitors, traffic patterns and related site usage information. This data reflects the SSE Site usage patterns gathered during thousands of user visits to the SSE Site. SSE may also provide log files and other databases of user information to third parties for analysis so that we may improve our content offerings, graphics, layout, ease of the SSE Site use or navigation, and the like.
Further, notwithstanding any opt out of promotional information by you, SSE reserves the right to contact you regarding account status, changes to the subscriber agreement and other matters relevant to the underlying service and/or the information collected.
If you submit a text message to SSE, we may broadcast the content of the text message by means of our jumbotron during a game. The jumbotron may be filmed during a game, and your text message may be rebroadcast over television networks and the Internet. Your text message may therefore be viewed by other users or the public. We urge you to use good judgment and not text information that you do not want the general public to know.
SSE may disclose your information to our employees, contractors, affiliates, distributors, dealers, vendors and suppliers who process such information on our behalf, participate with us in the provision or operation of the SSE Site or provide you with services. Information collected from you may be transferred to a third party as a result of a sale or acquisition, or merger or any other transfer of assets transaction involving SSE or one of its companies.
SSE reserves the right to perform, or have performed by third parties, statistical and other analyses of user behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various pages, or functional, graphical or informational frames or areas of the SSE Site, and to inform advertisers of such analyses as well as the number of users that have been exposed to or clicked on their advertising banners. SSE will provide only aggregated anonymous data from these analyses to third parties.

5. User’s Ability to Opt-Out
Beginning at the point of SSE’s first email or text message with the user, and upon each subsequent email or text message, the user will have the opportunity to indicate whether he or she would like to "opt out" of receiving promotional and/or marketing information about other products, services and offerings from SSE and/or any third parties. Upon such request, SSE will allow any user to "opt out" of further promotional contacts at any time. Additionally, upon request, SSE will use reasonable efforts to allow users to update/correct personal information previously submitted which the user states is erroneous to the extent such activities will not compromise privacy or security interests. Also, upon a user's request, SSE will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally delete the user and his or her personal information from its database; however, it may be impossible to delete a user's entry without some residual information because of backups and records of deletions.
6. Security Measures
SSE has adopted generally acceptable security measures to protect your personal information against loss, misuse and alteration when such information is within SSE’s control. These services are stored in New York for the NHL.com and in the Chicago area for Americaneagle.com hosted sites.
Please note that despite all precautionary steps, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. SSE will use commercially reasonable measures to protect your information but does not warrant that the information transmitted to us will be secure at all times.

You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your login information, including any passwords and user names. At no time will SSE require you to transmit your password information to SSE via email. Should you receive any such requests, please contact email@example.com to authenticate such inquiry before responding to the same.
