The NHL Alumni Association may use any or all of the information we obtain about you to tailor our content to suit your needs and help us and/or potential corporate sponsors better understand our user demographics. In general, we will not share information about individual users with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process, or to protect the personal safety of us, our users, or the public. However, we reserve the right the share information about individual users with third parties that help us to administer the website, and those third parties may use such information to contact you with information about current and future tournaments conducted by the NHL Alumni Association and our partner charitable organizations.

We take steps to protect the security of your personal information to try to minimize the risk of loss, misuse, alteration, destruction, or unauthorized access. We use sophisticated security technologies to secure the personal information you submit (e.g., your name, geographical and email addresses, and telephone number). Your submission of information is encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) technology, which is a coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt data before you send it. To support this technology, users must have an SSL-capable browser. SSL is one of the safest encryption technologies available; however, we cannot guarantee that any electronic transfer of information is totally secure.
We are concerned about the safety of children when they use the internet.
