Who we share your data with

If you submit a contact form, any information you share in the form, including your name, email address and the contents of your message will be shared with the webmaster and certain club officials as necessary to follow up on your message. You should not share confidential or personal information in a contact form, as this is not a secure form of communication.

We use Google Analytics in order to understand how many people visit this website and how they interact with the site. Google Analytics collects certain data, such as the URL of the page you are visiting and your IP address. This information allows their service to help us understand how frequently users visit the website and what country, state and city they are from. Your IP address is never tied to your individual behavior on the website, so we are not able to track individual behavior by IP address. For example, we could not use your IP address to know what pages you visited or what information you entered in a contact form. Learn more about how Google uses this information here.

How long we retain your data

If you submit a message via a contact form, any information you share may be retained indefinitely.

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
