Browsing

Big League Impact does not collect any personally identifying information from you when you visit the Website unless you choose to provide such information.

You can browse the Website without telling Big League Impact who you are or revealing any information about yourself. The information Big League Impact collects during normal browsing comes from two sources: (i) standard server logs collect information such as the IP (Internet Protocol) address, domain name, browser type, operating system and information like the site that referred you to us, the files you downloaded, the pages you visited and the dates/times of those visits; and (ii) if you have come into the Website from one of one of Big League Impact’s designated beneficiaries or from a site that has included a link, Big League Impact will ask your browser to accept a “cookie” (defined below) that carries a general marketing source code with you as you browse through the Website, to help Big League Impact match referring sites to donations made.

Cookies

When you visit the Website, Big League Impact may store some information on your computer in the form of a “cookie” (i.e., a small piece of data that stores information on your browser in your computer’s hard drive) or similar file. Big League Impact uses conversion tracking cookies to analyze trends, gather broad demographic information, and monitor website traffic patterns that can help further develop and improve the design and functionality of the Website and Big League Impact’s mission. Big League Impact may also use cookies for “retargeting” in Internet advertising campaigns so that third-party vendors can show you advertising about Big League Impact, its designated beneficiaries, RT Sports, or other related entities as you browse the Internet. Retargeting is a marketing tool that identifies you as a previous visitor to the Website and targets you for specific outreach messages. The cookies will only be used to obtain non-personal information.

Big League Impact may also obtain non-personally identifiable information (e.g., content viewed or clicked) from your interaction with our content.

When you provide information from your social-media account, it enables Big League Impact to: (i) provide you with exclusive content; (ii) personalize your online experience with Big League Impact, within and outside the Website; and (iii) contact you through the social-networking sites or directly, to, for example, send you news and information.
