BackHand City Terms of Service (owned by BackHand City, LLC )

Terms of Service and Privacy Policy Updated: January 18, 2011

BackHand City, LLC (“TTL” or “we,” “us” or “our”) respects the privacy rights of our online visitors and members and recognizes the importance of protecting the information collected about you. We have adopted this online privacy policy (our “Policy”) that guides how we collect, store and use the information you provide online through your participation on the World Wide Web site located at http://www.BackHand City.com (the “Site”) and any related services (collectively, the "Services").

Information Collection and Use
We are the sole owner of the information collected on the Site unless specifically stated otherwise. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in our Policy. We collect information from our users at several different points on the Site. When registering to become a member of the Site, we may need you to provide your name, email address, mailing address, phone number and other personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information. Members of the Site must create a user name and password. This information, among other things, allows us to keep a user profile that we may use to monitor or improve the use and satisfaction of the Site and to customize the Site. Although certain parts of the Site allow you to use them without submitting any personally identifiable information, some areas, such as participation in certain contests, programs (How To Play Tennis programs, BackHand City Fitness Programs) or the submission of material, chat areas, bulletin boards and other specialized sections of the Site, do require registration and/or your submitting personally identifiable information. We also collect non-personally identifiable information, such as certain demographic information, for users of the Site. We use non-personally identifiable information to build a more useful Site and better Services by examining the collective characteristics and behavior of the Site's users, and by measuring demographics and interests regarding specific areas of the Site and the Services. We also may provide statistical information based on this data to our current and future entertainment and sponsorship partners and strategic alliances.

Information Disclosure
We reserve the right to disclose information submitted by or concerning any user as we feel is necessary to protect our systems or business. Specifically, but without limitation, we reserve the right to disclose such information when a visitor or member is in violation of our Terms of Use or any other agreement with us, or engages (or is suspected of engaging) in any harmful, infringing or illegal activity; any threatening or abusive behavior or in any manipulation of the Site or the Services including, without limitation, to law enforcement agencies for investigation or prosecution. You hereby agree that we may disclose such information in connection with such events and/or concerns, with or without a subpoena, warrant, or other court order, and that we may disclose such information in response to court and governmental orders, civil subpoenas, discovery requests and as otherwise required by law, as well as in response to allegations of infringement or as we feel may be required to protect TTL, the Services, the Site, our users, or other third parties. We also reserve the right to suspend or terminate your membership in connection with any suspected illegal, infringing, or inappropriate activity.

Subject to the foregoing, TTL may use your personally identifying information: (1) to customize various aspects of the Site and the Services to your preferences; (2) to determine which advertisements or sponsor messages will be served to your browser; (3) to send you announcements, updates, and other third party materials that we feel may be of interest to you (you may "opt out" of receiving these materials, as set forth below); and (4) as may be necessary to support the operation of the Site or the Services.

TTL may disclose your personally identifiable information to: (1) TTLs current and future entertainment and sponsorship, advertisement and development partners and strategic alliances; and (2) TTLs contractors, consultants, and professional advisors to the extent necessary for them to perform services on our behalf, and only under disclosure restrictions.

Notwithstanding anything contained herein, because the Site is developed by Within Reach Concepts Inc, and is hosted by Cyberwurx, Inc., TTL will disclose both personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information to Within Reach Concepts, Inc., and Cyberwurx, Inc. In addition, we may partner or otherwise contract with other parties to provide specific services. When you sign up for these services we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services; provided that these parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.

User Names and User Disclosure

The user name you select or are provided with upon registration with the Site is deemed non-personally identifiable information. Your user name may be published on the Site and may be disclosed to others, including, without limitation, to the public, and to any third parties with whom we elect to share such information. In addition, if you include your name or any other personally identifying information in any material transmitted or posted on public areas of the Site or the Services (including, without limitation, message boards, reviews and chat rooms), such information will become public information and will be published on the Site and will be disclosed to other users of the Site and to other third parties who may have access to or otherwise see a display of such information. You hereby release, waive any claims against, and hold harmless TTL and its related or affiliated entities, as well as all of its and their respective partners, parent, members, subsidiaries, affiliates, sponsors, officers, directors, shareholders, representatives, agents, contractors, consultants, and professional advisors and any of their employees, from and against any and all claims relating to such disclosure, sharing, or publication.

Tournament, Contests, Submissions and Promotions
When you enter a tournament, contest, submission or other promotional feature, we may again ask for your name, address, email address, user name, password, and other various submission information, demographic information and consumer preferences so that we are able to, for example, properly administer the tournament and notify participants. We reserve the right in our sole discretion to sell, trade or otherwise transfer outside TTL personally identifiable information that users voluntarily provide in any registration or tournament, contest or material submission. In connection with TTL's tournaments, contests, submissions or other promotions, TTL may post relevant privacy information in the official rules, and/or in the registration area or another area on the Site for the tournament, contest, promotion or submission. That privacy information, to the extent it conflicts with our Policy, will govern that particular promotion, tournament, contest or submission.

Cookies
