The Kirkets Service is a subscription - based club for cricket fans from CricInfo, offering users who pay a subscription
There may be links to other CricInfo services from within the Kirkets service. Other CricInfo services like Statsguru, Fantasy, e-mail newsletters and any other services that CricInfo may launch or operate from time to time all maintain their own separate Terms of Service, and Privacy Policies which will be publicly available.
CricInfo also collects information from the site using "cookies" and "IP files".
Each time a user visits our Web site, our servers -- like most servers on the Web –register some basic technical information, including for example, the visitor's IP (Internet Protocol) address, browser type etc.
We also count, track and aggregate the user's activity into our analysis of general traffic flows at our sites (e.g. tracking where traffic comes from, how traffic flows within the CricInfo.com network of sites, etc.). To these ends, we may merge information about users and visits into group data, which may then be shared on an aggregated basis with our advertisers; but we will not disclose your individual identity or personally identifiable data without your permission. When we do present aggregated information to outside companies, no one will be able to identify you or contact you.
5. How does CricInfo use users' personal information? CricInfo will process the information that we collect from you and from your use of the site for the following purposes:
CricInfo may combine the information that we collect from you through the Kirkets service with information that you provide to us in connection with your use of our other products, services and web sites.
Kirkets may offer a forums section to provide you with an opportunity to tell us what you think and read what other readers have to say. When you use our forums (for example, by posting a message on our message boards), we may make public any information that you provide including your name, location and e-mail address.
In addition, CricInfo carries out research on user demographics, interests, and behaviour based on the information provided to us directly (for example on registration, during a promotion or during e-commerce transactions) or from log files. The aim of this is to better understand and serve users. This research is compiled and analysed on an aggregated basis and does not enable identification of individual users.
Partners: Cricket boards, business partners, sponsors, advertisers: CricInfo may disclose aggregate user information to cricket boards and cricketing organisations, business partners or sponsors or potential advertisers. For example aggregated data collected during a CricInfo promotion may be shared with a partner for the purposes of assessing the promotion. It is not possible to identify individual users from such aggregated data.
Some of our competitions and promotions offer opportunities for users to receive additional information from sponsors (for example, about the sponsor's services). Details of shared use can be found in the Terms and Conditions of competitions and promotions; you will be asked whether you consent to your details being sent to the sponsor so that you can receive this information when you enter the competition or promotion. By requesting more information, you give CricInfo permission to transfer your personal information to the sponsor to fulfil this request. Any future transactions or transfer of information will be between the sponsor and you alone and will be outside CricInfo's control or responsibility.
From time to time, you may be offered the opportunity to receive materials or special offers directly from partners. If you consent to receiving information from these third parties (either at registration or when we tell you about the offer), CricInfo will pass such personal data as is necessary to facilitate you receiving such information - such as your name, email address and postal address, to such partners. If you subsequently wish to opt out of receiving further information you will need to contact the partner.
CricShop, travel and betting services: CricInfo does not run CricShop. CricShop and other transactional facilities run by partners (such as betting, travel or specialist shopping facilities) CricInfo has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies. Information regarding the retailer, their store, and their privacy policies is provided by the relevant partner at the point of purchase/transaction.
Email-a-friend: If you elect to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, CricInfo will ask you for your friend's name and email address. CricInfo will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the site. CricInfo will store your friend's name and e-mail address for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and for no other reason or use. You should only give us your friend's e-mail address if your friend is happy for you to do so.
Links: CricInfo contains links to other sites. Please be aware that CricInfo is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. CricInfo encourages users to be aware when they leave the site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information.
We will always either ask for your consent or give you the option to opt out of receiving offers or information from CricInfo or its partners, either at registration or when we collect your information. In addition, at any time you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to request not to receive such offers and mailings and to have your information removed (see section 9).
If you wish to update or amend the information held by CricInfo (for example to change contact details or to alter preferences with regard to receiving mailings), you can do so at the My Account page, a link to which will be found on the foot of all pages. To update or amend information or preferences held by a third party, for example sponsors of a competition, you will need to contact that third party. If you identify an error in the information held by CricInfo please contact email@example.com . CricInfo will aim to rectify any notified error within one week of receipt of your request.
Kirkets subscriptions can be deleted or deactivated by mailing firstname.lastname@example.org . If users choose to delete or deactivate their subscription, CricInfo will not refund their subscription amount. Once a user has deleted or deactivated his/her subscription, the same subscription cannot be reactivated again. Users will need to subscribe again by filling up the registration form and making a payment again.
CricInfo recommends that users do not divulge their CricInfo registration password to anyone. CricInfo will never ask users for passwords in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. Users should also remember to log off from their CricInfo account and close their browser window when they have finished work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place such as a library or Internet cafe.
No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect users' personal information, CricInfo cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to it or from its online products or services, and users do so at their own risk. Once CricInfo receives your transmission, it makes every effort to ensure its security on its systems.
You should keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas that information can be collected and used by others. If you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.
Ultimately, you are solely responsible for keeping your passwords and/or account information secret. You should be careful and responsible whenever you are online.
Since CricInfo is an International company operating in multiple countries, processing your data may involve transferring it on a global basis. By subscribing to Kirkets, you consent to your data being transferred on a global basis.
As a global company CricInfo has sites and users all over the world. When you give CricInfo personal information, that information may be used by CricInfo operations in countries other than where the information was originally entered. CricInfo may use companies based around the world in connection with particular promotions, for example to send out special offers or competition prizes. The laws of different countries have different levels of data protection. By using CricInfo's services you are consenting to transfer of your personal information abroad as described in this policy.
CricInfo advises that children (under 12) do not register for its services or participate in its competitions and promotions. Anyone under 18 years will not be eligible to participate in some of the activities that are part of the service and such restrictions will be notified from time to time
