Our visitors’ privacy is important to us, and we recognize the need to provide additional privacy protection for children on our sites permitting such visitors. Our privacy practices are guided by the United States’ Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, as well as data privacy laws in the United States. Younger visitors should always check with their parents or guardians before entering information on any website or mobile application and we encourage families to discuss their household guidelines regarding the online sharing of personal information.
What Information Do We Collect?
When you visit our website you may provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis and website use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse the site.
Personal Information You Provide
You will provide us information about yourself, your organization or company, and your practices when you use Swing Issues’ websites, content, products and services, and register for email newsletters and alerts. Any and all information about children age 13 and under is requested only from a parent or guardian with verifiable consent always obtained from a parent or guardian of the child. Registration Information:
The information required to register varies, but may include: (a) birth date; (b) gender; (c) country; (d) state; (e) zip code; (f) user name and password; (g) wireless telephone number; (h) email address; and (i) other profile information such as avatar preferences, communications preferences, and interests.
If the site either is directed to children under 13 or has actual knowledge that a user is under 13 years old, the child may be asked to provide his or her parent’s or guardian’s email address. The parents/guardians will receive an activation email and must follow the procedures or otherwise agree to the terms within the activation email within a certain time period to activate the account; accounts not activated within that time period will be deleted.
Registration information is used to enable visitors to log into their accounts across different devices and platforms; take advantage of site offerings; respond to visitor’s requests for products, services, and information; send communications to users in connection with their account; manage games; serve appropriate material; customize the content you see when you visit the our sites.
Social Platform Registrations and Social Media Plugins
Our site permit or require users who are at least 13 years old to register or log into their account via a social networking platform such as Login with Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Reddit, or permit you to use social media plugins such as the Facebook “Like” or Google “+1” buttons. When you use these social networking platforms and plugins, your username and password for the services and other information available about you or collected from you on these services may be shared with us.
If you correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses.
Website Use Information
Similar to other commercial websites, this site uses a standard technology called “cookies” (see explanation below, “What Are Cookies?”) and Web server logs to collect information about how this site is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at this site, and the websites visited just before and just after our site. We may also use small technology or pieces of code to determine which promotions users have seen and how users responded to them.
How Do We Use the Information That You Give Us?

The information we collect is used to improve the content of this site and the quality of our service, and is not shared with or sold to other organizations for commercial purposes. That being said, your information could be shared under the following circumstances:
We use third parties to facilitate our business, including, but not limited to, sending email and processing payments. In connection with these offerings and business operations, these third parties may have access to your personal information for use in connection with those business activities.
As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer, email, and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions.
