1.2.2 Payment processing and security of information

1.2.2.1 Storage and accessibility of financial information Fantasy Rodeo League does not store credit card numbers or related financial information in its systems at any time. Accordingly, user supplied financial information is not accessible by FRL employees, officers, agents, or third parties other than the payment processor to whom the information is directly supplied by the user.

1.2.2.2 Payment processing procedure When a user submits a credit card payment, a secure data connection is created between the user and Electronic Data Payment Systems (the “Processor”). Once the connection is created, the user’s financial information is transmitted directly and securely to the Processor and is never accessible to FRL.

Electronic Data Payment Systems passes the secure transaction information via a secure connection to the Merchant’s who submits the transaction to the credit card network (like Visa or MasterCard). The credit card network routes the transaction to the bank that issued the credit card to the customer.

The issuing bank approves or declines the transaction based on the customer's available funds and passes the transaction results back to the credit card network. The credit card network relays the transaction results to the merchant bank's processor. The processor relays the transaction results to Electronic Data Payment Systems which deposits the funds in FRL’s account after taking out a processing fee.

These technologies fall into two categories, based on the length of time they remain active:

1.3.1.1 Single-session cookies last only as long as a web browser is open. Once the browser is closed, the data files on your computer are deleted.

1.3.1.2 Multi-session cookies last beyond a single session of browsing a website; this allows a website to recognize a computer or user for defined amount of time.

1.3.1.3 Session cookies are used for technical purposes, such as enabling better navigation through the site, facilitating the use of user accounts, and generating aggregated statistics about how the website is used.

1.3.1.4 Persistent cookies are used to recognize a computer that has previously visited nfrfantasyrodeo.com, which can improve a user’s experience; for example, by continuing preference settings from previous visits. These cookies do not collect personal identifying information.

In the case of nfrfantasyrodeo.com, parental consent is assumed through the use of credit card payment systems. Although the use of credit card, and user-supplied information is less than perfect for these purposes, it is our experience, and industry practice, that such processes are the best methods for reasonably preventing access to the system by minors.

1.6 Security of nfrfantasyrodeo.com We take reasonable precautions to protect our site and information automatically collected by, or voluntarily supplied to, nfrfantasyrodeo.com. For example, we restrict access to information collected by or submitted to nfrfantasyrodeo.com or official nfrfantasyrodeo.com pages of on third-party sites to employees who access it to perform their official duties.

We also utilize commonly used practices and technical controls to protect this information, along with nfrfantasyrodeo.com itself. These practices and controls include, but are not limited to, encrypting the transfer of personal information over the Internet via Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) on nfrfantasyrodeo.com. We periodically review our processes and systems to verify compliance with industry best practices and ensure the highest level of security for our website.
