- Info collection
We store captain email addresses, and player email addresses if they are given. Players can opt out of HappyTC at any time, which adds the player's email address to a "blacklist" in order to prevent any subsequent emails from being sent to that player by the HappyTC system. Team captains can deregister from HappyTC at any time by clicking the "Deregister" button under "Your Profile". Players can, if desired, request total removal of their email addresses from our system (including the blacklist) by sending an email to quit<AT>happytc<DOT>com .
The only other things we store (if used by the team captain) are meant to be non-confidential, public knowledge pieces of information about players in relation to the team sport being played (e.g. field position, gender). As with normal email, HappyTC should NOT be used to convey or store any sensitive/confidential information about players.
- Info usage
We ONLY use email addresses to contact players as determined by the team captain. Email addresses are NEVER shared with other parties.
HappyTC uses Google to serve ads when you visit HappyTC (as do zillions of other websites).
- Google's use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to HappyTC users based on their visit to HappyTC and other sites on the Internet.
To make HappyTC as easy & convenient to use as possible, HappyTC implements a "good enough" security model. An absolute minimum of user data is stored (essentially just email addresses), meaning we can make it simpler for users to access the system. Team captains must enter a user ID and password; players need to click on their own uniquely-identifying link in an email sent by the system on behalf of the team captain.
