Who We Share Your Information With

Personal Information
Except as disclosed in this Privacy Policy, we do not use or disclose your personal information to any groups or businesses not part of BTC. We may provide your personal information to our Club Sponsors, but in no event will we sell or rent your personal information as part of a customer list or similar transaction without your express permission.

Social Media
Our Sites may provide you with the ability to register, log into, “like” or otherwise interact with third party social media services, including, but not limited to, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, and other social media services. These features may enable integration and/or access to your social media accounts. We do not control these social media services or your profiles on these services, and we do not establish privacy settings or rules for how your personal information on these services will be used. If you choose to log on to or submit information through any of these social media services, your personal information will be subject to the applicable social media service’s terms and conditions and your current privacy settings on such social media service. By accessing any social media service, you will be assuming the risk that the personal information you provide on that service may be viewed and/or used by third parties for any purpose. You agree that we are not responsible for any acts or omissions by these social media service providers.

Images
During the course of BTC training events, workshops, social events, clinics, volunteer activities, and races, members of the BTC board, coaching staff, or other BTC members may take photographs of you and others. By becoming a BTC member, you consent to allowing your image to be used on the BTC Site, social media sites, newsletters, advertising, and BTC promotional materials. Images will never be sold or used for commercial purposes other than to promote the activities of the Club. Members may request that personal images not be used on BTC Sites by writing to info@brooklyntri.org.

Security of Your Personal Information

BTC takes reasonable steps to help protect and secure your personal information. However, please remember that no data storage or data transmission over the Internet, or by other means, can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Thus, BTC cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. Therefore, you understand, acknowledge and agree that you transmit your personal information to our Sites at your own risk.

Third Party Content and Links to Third Party Websites

Our Sites may contain content hosted or served by third parties or link to websites operated by partners of BTC or third parties. Please be advised that the practices described in this Privacy Policy for BTC do not apply to information gathered by these third parties. We are not responsible for the actions and privacy policies employed by any third party, and our hosting of third party content or linking to third party websites does not constitute an endorsement of the content or business practices of those third parties.

Member Forum

Please remember that any information you share in our member forum, message boards or feedback sections, becomes available to other members, who may take and use that information. Please be careful about what you disclose and do not post any personal information that you expect to keep private.

Governing Law

These Sites are published in the United States. We attempt to protect the personal information of all users of our Sites and we attempt to comply with local data protection and consumer rights laws to the extent they may apply to BTC’s services, but our Sites are located and targeted to United States citizens and our policies are directed at compliance with those laws. If you are uncertain whether this Privacy Policy conflicts with the applicable local privacy laws where you are located, you should not submit your personal information to BTC.

Notice to Non-US Users

If you are located outside the United States of America, you should be aware that your personally identifiable information will be transferred to the United States of America, the laws of which may be deemed by the your country to have inadequate data protection. If you are located in a country outside the United States of America and voluntarily submit personally identifiable information to us on the Sites, you thereby consent to the general use of such information as provided in this Privacy Policy and to the transfer of that information to, and/or storage of that information in, the United States of America.

Changes to This Privacy Policy

BTC may make periodic changes to this Privacy Policy at any time, without notice. We will not, however, materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of personal information we have previously collected from you without your express consent

We provide you with the opportunity to opt-out of receiving such communications from us by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link within the email you receive.
