How Information Is Shared And Used
When you provide information to Pier40Baseball.com, the information is stored in some of our
partners' databases. Such information is used by Pier40Baseball.com in accordance with this Privacy
Policy and by our partners in accordance with their policies. Information we collect is used to
tailor your experience at our site, to show you content that we think you might be interested in,
and to display the content according to your preferences. We also use such personal information
to send you information and promotional materials about us and our partners. Your contact
information may also be used if it becomes necessary to contact you.
To allow you to use some of our features, information we collect will be shared with our partners.
Information collected by us and our partners (for example, when you link to their sites or call a
phone number provided by us) will also be shared with third parties, such as product suppliers,
airlines, car rental agencies, and travel agencies to ensure the successful fulfillment of your
product orders or travel arrangements. In addition, when you use a credit card to purchase goods
and services through our website, your encrypted credit card information will be sent to our
retail partners that provide registry and shopping services or to various sources to authorize
other entities, we intend to require that all of our partners agree not to use your personal
information, except as fully disclosed to you or authorized by you. For more information on
the privacy practices of our partners, we encourage you to read their privacy policies. Any
information we collect may be shared with advertisers on an aggregate basis. In addition, we
may from time to time hire a third party to act on our behalf for projects such as market
research surveys and contest entry processing, and we will provide information to these
third parties specifically for use in connection with these projects. Survey and contest
participation is entirely optional. The information we provide to such third parties will
be protected by a confidentiality agreement that will obligate the third party to use such
information solely to complete the specific project.
In addition to the circumstances described above, we may disclose your information if required
to do so by law, court order, as requested by other government or law enforcement authorities,
or in the good faith belief that disclosure is otherwise necessary or advisable, including
(without limitation) when we have reason to believe that disclosing the information is necessary
to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing interference with
our rights or properties, whether intentionally or otherwise, or when anyone else could be
harmed by such activities.

Security Measures We Take To Protect Your Personal Information
All order information you provide to us and all information contained in your "Shopper Account"
is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a widely used coding
system that lets your browser automatically encrypt or scramble data before you send it to us.
Transactions will not be permitted if your browser does not accept SSL encryption. Only
authorized personnel from Pier40Baseball.com or its partners can decode this information and
to attempt to deter the theft of credit card numbers and other personal information residing
in our system, we and our retail partners have installed secure "firewalls" and/or have implemented
other security measures to help protect our systems against "hacker" break-ins. Additionally,
all credit card numbers are encrypted in our system until either the customer or Pier40Baseball.com
requires the information.
