Netball Scoop Privacy Policy

The Bottom Line

For those who wish to bypass the legalese, the bottom line is we don’t rent, sell, lease, give, or in any way transfer your private information to third parties unless necessary to provide you with service or comply with the law. Should you desire full disclosure, the policy is set forth below. In the event of any conflict between this bottom line statement and the legalese, the legalese wins.
