We do not provide Personal Data to third parties with whom we share your Non-Personal Data. Please note that, when you select an advertising link or other link that takes you to sites not operated by Puckpedia, you may be subject to the privacy policies of these third-party sites. We also use software programs that create user data summary statistics,, so that we can learn about our Site and our visitors’ interest  in it. We also use this aggregate data to perfect  technical design specifications and identify system performance or problem areas.  For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, PuckPedia also uses software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. 

Public Forums
We may offer chat rooms, message boards, bulletin boards, or similar public forums where you and can communicate with other users of our Sites.  The protections described in this Privacy Policy do not apply when you provide information (including personal information) in connection with your use of these public forums. We may use personally identifiable and non-personal information about you to identify you with a posting in a public forum. Any information you share in a public forum is public information and may be seen or collected by anyone, including third parties that do not adhere to our Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for events arising from the distribution of any information you choose to publicly post or share through our Website.  

V. How We Share Your Data

We share your Personal Data, sometimes combined with Non-Personal Data, in a variety of ways including, but not limited to the below:
  • Share data with third parties to fulfill service requests and to perform business functions (e.g., Puckpedia contracts with third parties to provide services on our behalf such as data hosting services; packaging, mailing and delivering services; customer support and consulting services).
  • Share data with third parties as required by law or to protect Puckpedia in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process served on Puckpedia; (b) protect and defend Puckpedia’s rights or property; or (c) protect the personal safety of Puckpedia personnel or members of the public in appropriate circumstances.
  • Share data with third parties if Puckpedia and/or its assets (or a portion of its assets) are sold, assigned, transferred, or merged, or if Puckpedia undergoes some other change including a change to its corporate form as part of a bankruptcy proceeding or otherwise; information may be transferred as part of that transaction or change.
  • Share data with third parties to offer you products and services that may be of interest to you. Users can request their information to be removed from such lists by contacting us, as set forth in the “Contact Information” section below.

XIV. Cookies; Third Party Ad Server Networks

We may use third parties such as network advertisers to serve advertisements on our Sites and may use traffic measurement services to analyze traffic on our Sites. Network advertisers are third parties that display advertisements based on your visits to our Website and other Websites you have visited.

Puckpedia’s third-party ad network providers, the advertisers, the sponsors and/or traffic measurement services may themselves set and access their own cookies on your computer if you choose to have cookies enabled in your browser and track certain behavioral information regarding users of your computer via a Device Identifier. These third-party cookies are set to, among other things: (a) help deliver advertisements to you that you might be interested in; (b) prevent you from seeing the same advertisements too many times; and (c) understand the usefulness to you of the advertisements that have been delivered to you. Note that any images (or any other parts of a web page) served by third parties in association with third party cookies may serve as web beacons, which enable third parties to carry out the previously described activities. Third party cookies and web beacons are governed by each third party's specific privacy policy, not this one.
