What do we collect?
BenchSports.com collects minimal information to ensure the usability of our website and ensure a smooth administration for our pool administrators. Your pool administrator may require more detailed information depending on how your pool is set up.
The items we collect are as follows:
- User Login - This is your unique login specific to BenchSports.com
- Password - A valid password is required to ensure security
- Email Address - A valid email address is required to receive temporary passwords and may be used by your league administrator.
- Name - Name is just another indicator for persons participating in your pools to know "who" you are
- City - Same as name just another indicator for persons participating in your pools to know "where" everyone participating is from
- Time Zone - This allows for us to display due dates/start dates in your local time to avoid any time zone confusion.
Who has access to view my information?
Your personal information is available for viewing in four scenarios:
- You - you can view/change your personal information at any time
- Pool Participants - other participants can view minimal personal information on the league roster page within your pool.
- Pool Managers - the person managing your pool can see additional personal information on the league roster page within your pool in order to contact you.

When will BenchSports use my information?
- BenchSports.com NEVER sell or use your personal information to any entity. The personal information collected is solely for the use of BenchSports.com.
There are a few scenarios where we will use your personal information.
- Site Issues - If there are issues arising from site usage, user information management or any other site issues that missing or inaccurate personal information prevents proper site usage.
- Email Reminders - We occasionally send out reminders to league owners when a new season is coming up (you can opt out of this feature)
