The Information We Collect and How We Collect It
Like many websites, this Site's web servers automatically collect the Internet Protocol addresses, but not the email addresses, of visitors. We may use this information to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the site and pages viewed as well as to diagnose problems with our servers and to administer the site. We may then use this information to analyze and improve the features and functionality of this Site. This information is generally non-personally identifiable.
Sometimes, we may ask you for personal information, including your name, email address, mailing address, telephone number, preferences, and demographic information. We would likely collect this personal information when you make purchases through this Site or websites operated by related American SportBike Racing Association companies and suppliers such as Ticketmaster, or to register for certain services offered by us, enter sweepstakes or promotions we conduct, send email to this Site, respond to emails from this Site, post messages or upload content using this Site. ASRA also may combine this information from you with other personally identifiable information about you that we receive from other sources.
We do not knowingly collect personal information, including contact information, from children under age 13. In the event that a child under the age of 13 attempts to register on our site, we will NOT accept the registration and will delete information received from the child.
We collect and store information about you and statistics about your use of our site both in an aggregated, non-personally identifiable way and in a manner that may allow us to identify you personally. For example, we may use information about you and other site visitors on an aggregated basis to sell and deliver advertising, promotions and content that we believe will be of interest to you. We may use personally identifiable information in similar ways. For example, we may use your email address or mobile telephone number's messaging capability to send you special announcements or notifications of events or services that may be of interest to you and to verify and authorize the use of your credit card. We may use your mailing address to fulfill orders of merchandise and other products as well as to send you announcements and notifications that may be of interest to you.
From time to time, we may share your email address with venues where events occur, with promoters of events, with other American SportBike Racing Association companies and with third parties. The venue, promoter, our companies or third party may send you announcements and notifications of events, products or services that might be of interest to you. These announcements may include gift certificates, sweepstakes, contests, promotions, giveaways and merchandise offerings. Your mailing address may be shared with your credit card company in order to verify that you are an authorized user. It may also be shared with the venue, promoter of the ticketed event or ticket agent, such as Ticketmaster, in order for them to mail tickets or event information to you.
When you make purchases on the Site, or use certain features on the Site, we request you to provide financial information such as account or credit card numbers. We will use your financial information to bill you for products and services or otherwise process your transactions. By making a purchase on the Site, you consent to our providing your financial information to our service providers and to such third parties as we determine is necessary to process your transactions. These third parties may include the credit card companies and banking institutions used to process the transaction. By purchasing products or services of third parties (such as magazine subscriptions) offered on the Site or when you purchase tickets on the Site from our ticketing partners, you also consent to our providing your financial information to those third parties. Any of these various third parties are authorized to use your financial information in accordance with our contractual arrangements with such third parties and in accordance with their own privacy policies, over which we have no control.
From time to time, we may enter into a relationship with another company that is not owned by ASRA or affiliated with us. These relationships may include "powered by" partners, business or ticketing affiliates, sponsors and co-branded sites. Personal information that you have provided us may be shared with these third parties. Also, when you purchase event tickets directly from us on a CCEntertainment website, on a co-branded page, or from a ticketing agent such as Ticketmaster, your information will be shared with the venues, promoters, artists and other third parties associated with the event for which you buy tickets. Because these third parties will use information about you in accordance with their own privacy rules, you should check their websites for their privacy policies.
In some situations, the law will require us to disclose information about you to the government or other third parties, or third parties may unlawfully intercept Internet transmissions or private communications. If asked or required by law, we may release information about you to law enforcement, other government officials or private entities if we believe it is necessary or appropriate to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries, such as in court or regulatory proceedings.
This Site contains links and references to other websites and organizations, including websites not under the control of American SportBike Racing Association, LLC. Please note that different rules may apply to the collection, use or disclosure of your information by operators of these third-party websites. We encourage you to investigate and ask questions before disclosing information to third parties. Although we try to link only to sites with high standards regarding privacy, ASRA is neither responsible for nor makes any warranties or representations regarding the privacy practices of any of the linked sites.
This Site may make available chat rooms, forums, CCS Fan Forums and news groups. Please remember that information you disclose in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when disclosing personal, financial or other information in any of these forums.
In the event that a child posts personal information in a public forum such as a chat room, we will attempt to delete that information once we become aware of it.
American SportBike Racing Association, LLC uses reasonable precautions to keep your personal information secure and to disclose such information only to third parties we believe to be responsible. We employ reasonable security measures consistent with standard industry practice for information collected through the site. We believe that we have adequate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of the information that we collect on the site. However, ASRA's affiliates and third-party Internet sites and services that are accessible through this Site, or parties who collect data in connection with sweepstakes, promotions and other activities, have separate privacy and data collection practices, independent of us. We cannot bear responsibility or liability for the actions of any third parties who may receive the information.

We make no representations that the site is governed by or operated in accordance with the law of other nations.
