Privacy Policy

The following policy outlines the types of information that (“BassFederation”) gathers from users and the way that the information is used.

The information that collects from users falls into three general categories:

  • Information You Provide to Us; BassFederation may collect and store information, personal or otherwise, that users voluntarily supply to BassFederation on the site, via e-mail or in any other way. Some examples of this type of information include the information that is submitted (such as name or e-mail address) when users register for surveys, sweepstakes or contests, information that users may post on any future message boards, and information contained in search requests or questions users submit to the site. If a user declines to supply or provide BassFederation with certain information, BassFederation may not be able to provide that user with some services that are dependent on the collection of this information.
  • Information that is Automatically Collected; BassFederation also collects and stores information that is generated automatically as users navigate through the site. For example, to enhance users’ experience at, BassFederation uses a standard feature found in browser software called a “cookie.” Cookies are small files that your web browser places on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes. By showing how and when visitors visit BassFederation’s site, cookies help BassFederation track user trends and patterns. They also prevent users from having to re-enter their preferences on certain areas of the site where they have entered preference information before. Another example of information that BassFederation automatically collects as users navigate the site is information about the users’ computer’s connection to the Internet. This information allows BassFederation, among other things, to improve the delivery of its web pages to users and to measure traffic on the BassFederation site.
  • Information from Other Sources; may also obtain information about users from third parties or other sources and may combine the information that BassFederation receives from them with information BassFederation has already obtained about you.
  • uses the aforementioned information to, among other things, customize features and advertising that appears on the site. In addition, BassFederation may also provide third parties with information about visitors that will better target ads or services to specific types of visitors.

Therefore, BassFederation reserves the right to use and to disclose to third parties all of the information that is collected about users and other visitors in any way and for any purpose, with one important exception. BassFederation will not use the information that is collected, nor will we authorize third parties to use the information that we collect, to mail or e-mail promotional offers directly to users unless they have specifically informed BassFederation that they would like to receive promotional offers from and from third parties, or unless it is part of a Federation-wide effort. Under these circumstances, a user’s information may be used for direct mail or e-mail marketing. Users can request to be removed from any such list by emailing the webmaster by clicking here.
