Privacy Policy

The following policy outlines the types of information that BassFederation.com (“BassFederation”) gathers from users and the way that the information is used.

The information that BassFederation.com collects from users falls into three general categories:

  • Information You Provide to Us; “TBF” or our state federation affiliates  may collect and store information, personal or otherwise, that users voluntarily supply to “TBF” on the BassFederation.com site, via e-mail or text or in any other way. Some examples of this type of information include the information that is submitted (such as name or e-mail address) Phone numbers when users register or opt into our membership program, event communication via text messages or from surveys, sweepstakes or contests, information that users may post on any future message boards, and information contained in search requests or questions users submit to the site. If a user declines to supply or provide us with certain information, “TBF” may not be able to provide that user with some services that are dependent on the collection of this information. However, it is always the members CHOICE to opt in or opt out.
  • Information that is Automatically Collected; “TBF” also collects and stores information that is generated automatically as users navigate through the BassFederation.com site. For example, to enhance users’ experience at BassFederation.com, “TBF” uses a standard feature found in browser software called a “cookie.” Cookies are small files that your web browser places on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes. By showing how and when visitors visit BassFederation’s site, cookies help “TBF” track user trends and patterns. They also prevent users from having to re-enter their preferences on certain areas of the site where they have entered preference information before. Another example of information that “TBF” automatically collects as users navigate the site is information about the users’ computer’s connection to the Internet. This information allows “TBF”, among other things, to improve the delivery of its web pages to users and to measure traffic on the “TBF” site.
  • Information from Other Sources; “TBF” may also obtain information about users from third parties or other sources and may combine the information that “TBF” receives from them with information “TBF” has already obtained about you.
  • BassFederation.com uses the aforementioned information to, among other things, customize features and advertising that appears on the BassFederation.com site. In addition, “TBF” may also provide third parties with information about visitors that will better target ads or services to specific types of visitors.

Therefore, while “TBF” reserves the right to use all info we collect, we will never sale nor transfer your Pii information to a third party. All of the information that is collected about users members or others in any way and for any purpose, with one important exception.  “TBF” will not use the information that is collected, nor will we authorize third parties to use the information that we collect, to mail, text or e-mail promotional offers directly to users unless they have specifically opted in by informing us that they would like to receive promotional offers from us and from our partners. Under these circumstances, a user’s information may be used for direct mail or e-mail marketing. Users can request to be removed from any such list at any time by emailing the webmaster by clicking here.

Please also keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online; for example on message boards, through e-mail, or in chat areas; that it’s possible that that information could be seen, collected and used by others besides “TBF”.  We cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of information that you disclose online.
