Privacy Policy

PLEASE READ THIS PRIVACY POLICY CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS WEBSITE OR SUBMITTING ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION. BY USING THIS WEBSITE YOU ARE AGREEING TO THESE PRIVACY TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE, DO NOT USE THIS WEBSITE. We reserve the right to modify them at any time. You should check these terms and conditions periodically for changes. By using this website after we post any changes to these terms and conditions, you agree to accept those changes, whether or not you have reviewed them. We will post a notice here when we make material changes to these terms. If at any time you choose not to accept these terms and conditions of use, please do not use this website.

Commitment to Privacy
This website,, ("Site") and any and all websites that we may own and operate in the future are owned by The Billiard Congress of America ("BCA," "we" or "our"). We respect the privacy of every individual who uses the Site and we will only process and use the data obtained through the Site for our own personal purposes. This privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") outlines the information we will collect and how we will use that information.

Personally Identifiable Information
When you access and use this Site, we or our service providers may obtain data concerning that access and use. If you request information from us or register to use any limited access portions of the Site, you will be asked to provide personally identifiable information about yourself. This data may include, but is not limited to, your name, address and other demographic information, telephone number, and email address. We will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it to us voluntarily. If you opt not to provide us with personally identifiable information, no material consequences will result, although there may be functionality on the Site that may be unavailable to you.

Use of Personally Identifiable Information
We may store and process your personally identifiable information in order to fulfill any requests for information that you make of us, provide you access to the "GP Insider" portions of the Site, or to better understand your needs and to learn how to improve our Site offerings. We may also use your personally identifiable information to contact you (for example, we may respond to your email inquiries, request for more information or request to join our mailing list). We will not sell or rent your personal information to any third party not affiliated with the BCA without your express consent.

Interactive Forums
Our "Meet other players" section of the website provides our registered users an opportunity to interact with one another. Though we encourage the dialogue, you should remain cautious about revealing personal information such as age, e-mail address and phone number to other participants. You, and not we, are liable for any consequences that result from your disclosure of personal information to participants in the "Meet other players" section.

Disclosure to Service Providers
To enable us to more efficiently provide the products and services you have requested from us, we may share your personal information with selected third parties who are acting on our behalf as our agents, suppliers, or providers. Such third party service providers are provided only with such information as is necessary under the circumstances. Information provided to third parties is used only for the purposes stipulated and those third parties are subject to confidentiality obligations. We may also enhance or merge personally identifiable information with data obtained from third parties for any of the foregoing purposes. Nothing in the Privacy Policy shall be deemed to prohibit us from disclosing your identity or information if we are required by law to do so.

Contacting Us Regarding Your Personally Identifiable Information
If you have submitted personally identifiable information through the Site, and you would like to review, request changes or have that information deleted from our databases, please contact us by sending a letter to our Marketing Director at Billiard Congress of America (BCA), 12303 Airport Way, Suite 290, Broomfield, CO 80021. We will then use reasonable efforts to change or remove your personally identifiable information from our files, unless we are entitled or required to retain it pursuant to other agreements or by law. We will use reasonable efforts to supply you with this information and correct any factual inaccuracies in this information.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information Collected Automatically
In some cases, we may collect information about you that is not personally identifiable. Examples of this type of information include but are not limited to the frequency of your use of the Site and the route by which you choose to access the Site and your use of any available hyperlinks. We and our service providers, agents or advisors may process and use this data for purposes including but not limited to, planning Site development, assessing patterns of use, or to include you in e-mail or mailing lists so that we may send you information or updates and or offer you services.

"Cookies" are small text files that are either used for the duration of a session ('session cookies'), or saved on a user's hard drive in order to identify that user the next time he/she logs on to the Site ('persistent cookies'). We may use 'session cookies' to identify registered users logging in to the Site. These cookies are deleted from the server soon after the session ends and are not collected or saved. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your browser to prevent that, although if you do disable cookies from your browser you may not be able to access certain sections of the Site.

We strive to protect the privacy of the information that you share with us. We have undertaken reasonable efforts to implement security measures designed to protect all data we collect against unauthorized access. We utilize the industry standard security measures available through your browser, so that it is unlikely that your information can be read as it travels over the Internet.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, although we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of the information that you submit to us via the Site and you do so at your own risk. We also implement measures to protect your personal information off-line.

This site is not for use by persons under the age of 13. If you are under 13, do not use this site. If parents believe their minor children have accessed this site and provided their personally identifiable information, please contact us at the Billiard Congress of America (BCA), 12303 Airport Way, Suite 290, Broomfield, CO 80021.

Other Sites
The Site may contain links and pointers to other websites on the Internet that may be maintained by third parties. Such links are not controlled by the BCA and do not constitute an endorsement by the BCA or its affiliates. The BCA and its affiliates do not control, and are not responsible for, the availability, accuracy, or currency of such third-party websites or any information, content, products or services accessible from such third-party websites. Once you leave the Site and go to another website, please be aware that those websites may have terms and conditions that differ from the provisions provided herein. The BCA recommends that you review the privacy policy and terms and conditions of those websites prior to use. The BCA is not responsible for, and expressly disclaims any and all liability related to actions of such linked websites, their terms and conditions or the content of such websites.

Transfer of Business Assets
As we continue to develop our business, we might acquire or buy other businesses or assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that we or substantially all of our assets are acquired, both personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable user and customer information will be one of the transferred assets.
