NASPA and its members are tournament Scrabble players. To maintain our rating system, we keep a record of the name under which you wish to play, membership number and playing record. To use any of our paid services, you must provide billing information, which we retain only as long as is necessary. You may provide additional profile information, which we will publish and use for statistical purposes. You may provide contact information, which we will use to contact you, and to allow others to contact you with your permission. Interacting with our website may also involve the implicit recording of information in browser cookies and server logs.
We collect and store personally identifiable information from you when you use the Website, and when you participate in our sanctioned Scrabble activities. Stored information is kept on encrypted devices in the United States and Canada, and is subject to the privacy laws of those countries.
Here is an overview of the life cycle of each kind of information. In order to comply with privacy requirements in some countries, we have tried to strike a balance between clarity and completeness. Please contact us if you would like us to provide more of either.
