Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy discloses the privacy practices for ScheduleVista, 5 Star Sports Calendar, LLC. and ScheduleVista.com (the "Site").

Third party sites that ScheduleVista.com links to are governed by their own privacy policies. We are not responsible for the content or the privacy policies of those websites or other websites to which they link.

In this Privacy Policy, you will find answers to the following questions:

What information do we gather about you?

The information we gather falls into two categories: 1) personal information you voluntarily supply when you subscribe, order, complete a survey, register for an online discussion, enter a contest or provide your email address and 2) tracking information collected as you navigate through our sites.

Personally Identifiable Information

Registration for our Websites

Anyone can view the Site, but a free registration process is required to access the full range of information and services we offer.

ScheduleVista.com requires that you supply a unique email address to register. By using ScheduleVista.com, you are agreeing to the terms of our Terms of Service).

Mobile Messaging Service

We may elect to offer certain text messaging services (the "SMS Service"). We use the information collected from your interaction with the SMS Service solely for the purposes of improving the SMS Service. The information will not be provided, sold, licensed, rented, assigned or disclosed, except as required by law. We will not use your phone number to initiate a call or SMS text message to you without your express prior consent. Your wireless carrier and other service providers also collect data about your SMS Service usage: their practices are governed by their own privacy policies.

ScheduleVista collects the mobile phone number you use to subscribe to the alerting services and the content of the messages sent between you and ScheduleVista. When you send a text message to ScheduleVista or via ScheduleVista, we log the incoming phone number, the wireless provider associated with the number, and the date and time of the transaction. The only information we automatically collect is that related to the use of our Mobile Services. ScheduleVista uses this data to analyze the message traffic in order to operate, develop and improve our SMS Service.
