Information Collection and Use
Information Collected Upon Registration:
When you create a BadmintonLink account, you provide some personal information,
such as your name, location, and email address. Some of these information, for example, your name and location, is listed publicly on our Website, including on your profile page and in search results.
Some services, such as search, public user profiles and viewing lists, do not require registration.
You may provide us with additional information to make public, such as a short biography, your hobbies, or a picture.
You may customize your account with information such as a phone number or your address.
We may use your contact information to send you information about our services or to market to you.
You may unsubscribe from these messages by following the instructions contained within the messages or the instructions on our web site.
If you email us, we may keep your message, email address and contact information to respond to your request.
Providing the additional information described in this section is entirely optional.
Blogs, Photos, Events and other Public Information:
The Website are primarily designed to help you share hobbies and interests with the world.
Most of the information you provide to us is information you are asking us to make public.
This includes not only the blogs you post and the photos you upload,
but also the groups you create, the people you become friends with, the videos you add in your play list, the events you create, the vote topics you launch and many other bits of information.
Our default is almost always to make the information you provide public but we generally give you settings to make the information more private if you want.
Your public information is broadly and instantly disseminated. For example, your public blogs are searchable by many search engines.
You should be careful about all information that will be made public by BadmintonLink.com, not just your blogs.
Our servers automatically record information ("Log Data") created by your use of the Website.
Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type, the referring domain, pages visited, and search terms.
Other actions, such as interactions with advertisements, may also be included in Log Data.
Like many websites, we use "cookie" technology to collect additional website usage data and to improve our services, but we do not require cookies for many parts of our Website such as searching and looking at public user profiles or lists.
A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your computer's hard disk. The Website may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with the Website,
to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on the Website, and to improve our services.
Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by editing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit.
Third Party Services:
BadmintonLink.com uses Google Analytics

Through Google, Analytics collects the information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, including cookies and your IP address.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to us. We may share your personal information with these third parties,
Law and Harm:
We may disclose your information if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request;
to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect other BadmintonLink user's rights or property.
If we make a change to these policy that, in our sole discretion, is material, we will notify you by e-mail to the email associated with your account.
