Like most website operators, Football HQ collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.
Football HQ’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Football HQ’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Football HQ may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate. For example, by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Football HQ also collects potentially personally-identifying information. Collected information are things like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on footballhq.net blogs/sites.
Football HQ only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

This includes as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Football HQ collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Football HQ.
Football HQ does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And, of course, visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information. Obviously with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Football HQ may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. Football HQ may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Football HQ does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
