Anyone who participates in interactive activities on Sportsreporter.com may be asked to register for a free guest ID and password or to complete subscription registration for a member ID and password. We use customer contact information from this registration form to send the user information about our company and promotional material from some of our partners. Financial information that is collected is used to bill the user for products and services. The customer's contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary for customer service reasons. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the opt-out section below. Unique identifiers, such as ID and passwords, are collected to verify the user's identity and for use as account numbers in our record system.

Children Under the Age of 18
We do not currently collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of eighteen. Under certain circumstances, visitors may be asked to submit a screen name as a means of identifying communications to Sportsreporter.com. Children of any age should always ask a parent for permission before sending personal information to anyone online. If in the future, Sportsreporter.com collects personally identifiable information from children, it will do so in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (is U.S.C. 6501 et seq.)

IP Address
We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web site. Your IP address is used to help identify you and your shopping cart.

Cookies
A cookie is a small data file that certain Web sites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to track the pages you've visited. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. Generally, cookies work by assigning a unique number to the user that has no meaning outside the assigning site. A cookie can't read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. This random number lets us keep track of "how many" times customers are doing specific things - like visiting our site each month - without really knowing who those customers are. We also use cookies to keep track of your shopping cart and to make sure you don't see the same ad repeatedly. We use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests and to save your member ID. Additionally, after you've entered your member ID and password during a session on our service, we save that information so you don't have to re-enter it repeatedly during that session.

Users should be aware that Sportsreporter.com cannot control the use of cookies or the resulting information by advertisers or third parties hosting data for Sportsreporter.com. If a user does not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows the user to deny or accept the cookie feature; however, users should note that cookies may be necessary to provide the user with certain features (e.g., customized delivery of information) available on the Sportsreporter.com website.

Order Forms
Sportsreporter.com uses an order form for customers to purchase products and services. If you place an order at a store hosted by Sportsreporter.com we will collect information from you, including your credit card and contact information. This information will be used by the merchant to bill the user for products and services. Contact information from the order form will also be used to ship orders, to contact a user for customer service related issues, and to send the user information about our company, and on occasion, promotional material from some of our partners. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below.

Surveys
Our online surveys asks visitors for their Sportsreporter.com email address and demographic information. Demographic and profile data is also collected at our site. We use this data to tailor our visitor's experience at our site, showing them content and promotional offers that we think they might be interested in, and displaying the content according to their preferences. This information is shared with advertisers only on an aggregate basis.

We may use contact data from our surveys to send the user information about our company and promotional material from Sportsreporter.com or some of our partners. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below.

Contests
We run contests on our site in which we ask visitors for a Sportsreporter.com ID and password. We use contact data from our contests to send users information about upcoming contests and promotional offers. On occasion we will email customers promotional material from some of our partners. The customer's contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary for winner notification and prize delivery confirmation. The majority of the contests that we offer are hosted on the Sportsreporter.com site; however, there may be cases in which a third party sponsor will host the contest and collect user information. In those cases, we urge users to review the privacy statement of the third party site. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below.

Use of Information
All of the information we collect, both what you tell us and what we collect through the use of cookies, is "aggregated" - meaning that the information from many users is grouped together in a way that does not disclose the personal information of any particular user. We may use this aggregated information to evaluate which products and services are successful and which ones are not, and in order to evaluate which new services we should make available on our Web site. We may use only the anonymous click stream data to help our advertisers deliver better targeted advertisements. Sportsreporter.com will not disclose any information about any individual user except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process.

There may be cases in which some of your personal information may be used by Sportsreporter.com to target e-commerce promotions and telemarketing activities. In addition, it may be shared with third parties who assist Sportsreporter.com in producing its Web sites or provide a service to Sportsreporter.com's users.

AID AND A-BET
by Bobby Smith
Sports Reporter Editor

 
DECEMBER 24, 2013 -- One of the most frustrating facets of our sports wagering endeavor is that you canít get mad when something goes wrong. You can only get even, then ahead again. And you certainly cannot get even with somebody who messed up a game that cost you the pointspread victory. Itís not like a player or a coach is playing or coaching for our benefit. Our game is the game within the game and they arenít really involved with it, even though they are the pieces in play whose actions and results we try to project to the best of our abilities. MORE
