Thank you for visiting Athlete Ally’s website, including our Ambassador Program (the “Site”). This Site is operated by Athlete Ally, a non-profit organization. We understand that privacy is a unique and sensitive concern for members of our community, and we work to make our Site a resource that you can trust to respect your privacy and honor your wish to remain anonymous if you so desire. You are free to use this website without divulging any Personal Information. But we also believe in the power of speaking up, and speaking out. Any Personal Information you choose to share with us is voluntary, and by doing so, such as when you sign the Athlete Ally PLEDGE, we may use, share, or display that information to fight for an inclusive sports community that respects all individuals regardless of perceived or actual sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.
What Type of Information Does Athlete Ally Collect?
You are always free to visit the Athlete Ally Site anonymously. Once you give us your personal information (as further described below), you are not anonymous to us. We collect two types of information from visitors to the Site, Technical Information and Personal Information.Technical Information is non-personally identifying information about the way you interact with our website. This may include technical information such as what browser you are using or the time of day you access our Site. The Site may automatically track certain Technical Information based upon your browsing activity. We use this information to improve the content and functionality of this Site. Personal Information is individually identifiable information about you that could permit one to identify or contact you. At various places on the Site, we may request certain Personal Information, such as your contact information, age, gender and information about your sports activities in our Athlete Ally Pledge. We do not collect Social Security numbers. You can always choose not to provide information, but you may not be able to use a particular service or feature on the Site.
Our Use of Your Information
We use Technical Information we collect to improve our Site, make your experience more efficient and relevant, and provide you with a more customized experience. We may also use Technical Information internally to administer this Site.

If you provide us with your e-mail address as part of the Athlete Ally Pledge or Ambassadors program, to purchase gear or conduct other transactions, such as donations, on our Site, or if you opt-in to receive communications from Athlete Ally, we may use your contact information to periodically communicate with you via newsletters or e-mail. In addition, if you make a purchase on our Site, we will send you order and shipping confirmation emails.
