East Side Little League is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. Our Privacy Policy is posted below to help you understand the care with which personal information is treated whenever you use our web site.

Scope of this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy covers East Side Little League’s treatment of personally identifiable information collected from individuals, families and teams (hereafter “Registrant” or “Registrants”) who use the East Side Little League services, as well as consumer information that we acquire in the course of our business. 

This Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that East Side Little League does not own or control, or to people that East Side Little League does not employ or manage.

Personal Information

The East Side Little League system collects information about Registrants in which a Registrant is participating.  East Side Little League collects information from Registrant for the Customer and produces a variety of reports and notification about Registrants. The personal information we collect on the site includes first and last name, email address, mailing address, and credit card information.

The information collected is not shared with any party outside of operating the league. Examples of operations: such as when team information is sent to a separate scheduling program, personal information is sent to a background check company with the applicant's permission.

Credit Card Information

When Registrants use the East Side Little League system to make payment via credit card, the payment information is entered on a secure web page, using SSL encryption (see Web Security section) and processed via a merchant account. Only the last 4 digits of the credit card number are stored in the East Side Little League system. The Customer name (e.g. Springfield Soccer League) will appear on the Registrant’s credit card statement.

Social Security Numbers

East Side Little League utilizes a service to help manage the background check process for Customer’s volunteers.  While it is understandable that consumers are reluctant to disclose their Social Security Number, it is a crucial piece of information to help ensure the name being provided will match potential criminal records.  Social Security numbers are captured as part of a volunteer's profile, and passed on to our background check partner (via secure communications), who performs the background check.
