Privacy Policy


Effective Date: July 20, 2023

The Privacy Policy has been updated as of July 20, 2023.


The United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee ("USOPC") is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that produces and publishes,, and the official websites of several National Governing Bodies (each a "Platform NGB"). The USOPC may partner with certain companies (“Other Companies”) to produce mobile application versions of these websites as well as related USOPC application offerings including but not limited to event and coaching applications. The foregoing collectively comprise the “USOPC Platform.”

This Privacy Policy explains the types of information we collect via the USOPC Platform which link to this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy also describes how we may use that information, when and to whom it may be disclosed, and the choices we offer for you to manage the personal information we collect related to your use of the USOPC Platform. This Privacy Policy does not apply to information about the USOPC’s employees, contractors, agents, and job applicants in their capacity as such or information collected about you in your capacity as an employee, owner, director, officer, or contractor of a company, partnership, sole proprietorship, nonprofit or other legal entity.

Please note that we provide certain services to Platform NGBs (such as website hosting) that may require us to collect and process personal data on behalf of the Platform NGBs. We may also be permitted to collect and process personal data (such as demographic data, online activity information, and browser and device information) for our own purposes when you interact with any one of the Platform NGBs (such as through social media pixels we place on the Platform NGB’s website). We will process the information we collect for our purposes in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Our collection and processing of information on behalf of the Platform NGBs is governed by the terms of our agreements with the Platform NGBs, and not this Privacy Policy. We do not control the privacy practices of the Platform NGBs, and we are not responsible for how the Platform NGBs collect and process information, including the information we collect and process on their behalf. You should familiarize yourself with the privacy policy and practices of any Platform NGB whose services or properties you use for specific information about the ways in which the NGB collects and processes your personal data and your rights and choices with respect to such collection and processing.

The USOPC Platform may link to services or properties operated by Other Companies (e.g., theInternational Olympic Committee or International Paralympic Committee) which are not subjectto this Privacy Policy. You should familiarize yourself with the privacy practices of any OtherCompany whose services or properties you utilize and direct any concerns to that Company’srespective administrator.

4. Your Choices

You have a number of choices about how we handle information we collect or receive about you.

  • Your Choice Not to Share Your Information or Receive Promotional Messages. You can opt-out of receiving promotional emails from us at any time by (i) modifying your registered user information on the USOPC Platform; (ii) sending us an email at or if you are a donor; (iii) contacting us by mail at United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee, 1 Olympic Plaza, Colorado Springs, Colorado 80909, Attn:; or (iv) following the removal instructions in the communication that you receive. Your opt-out is limited to the email address used and will not affect subsequent subscriptions. Please note that you cannot opt-out of non-promotional emails, such as those about your account, transactions, donations, servicing or our ongoing business relations unless you are a Colorado resident and make a request to exercise a privacy right contained in Section 5.

  • Your Choice to Correct/Delete/Modify Your Information. If you wish to modify, verify, correct, or delete any of your Personal Information collected through the USOPC Platform, you may edit your registered user information or contact us at the above address or email. In accordance with our routine record keeping, we may delete certain records that contain Personal Information you have submitted through the USOPC Platforms. We are under no obligation to store such Personal Information indefinitely and disclaim any liability arising out of, or related to, the destruction of such Personal Information. It may not always be possible to completely remove or delete all of your information from our databases without some residual data because of backups and other reasons.

  • Your Choice Not to Receive Targeted Ads. If you do not want to receive the benefits of targeted advertising, you may opt out of some network advertising programs that use your information by visiting the NAI Opt-out page. Please note that even if you choose to remove your information (opt-out), you will still see advertisements while you are browsing online. However, the advertisements you see may be less relevant to you and your interests. Additionally, many network advertising programs allow you to view and manage the interest categories they have compiled from your online browsing activities. These interest categories help determine the types of targeted advertisements you may receive. The NAI Opt-Out Page provides a tool that identifies its member companies that have cookies on your browser and provides a mechanism to opt out of receiving cookies from those companies. Please note that if you opt-out of targeted advertising, we may still track your visits to the USOPC Platforms for our own analytics, operations and security purposes. For an additional resource to learn more about network advertising industry practices, opt out of targeted behavioral advertising from many major third party network advertisers, and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies via the information and tools available, visit here.

  • “Do Not Track” Signals. Please note that while you may have the opportunity to opt-out of targeted advertising and you may be able to control the use of cookies through your web browser as described above, some web browsers may also give you the ability to enable a “do not track” setting. This setting sends a special signal to the websites you encounter while web browsing. Because there currently is no industry standard concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals, the USOPC currently does not take action in response to these signals.  If and when a final standard is established and accepted, we will reassess how to respond to these signals. For more information about “do not track,” visit

  • Cookies. Most browsers let you remove or stop accepting cookies from the websites you visit. To do this, follow the instructions in your browser's settings. Many browsers accept cookies by default until you change your settings. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all functionality of the USOPC Platform and our site may not work properly. For more information about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your browser and how to manage and delete them, visit

All categories of personal information that we process may be shared with other parties to operate our business and as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy or at the time of collection. We may also "sell" your personal information to a third party in exchange for monetary or other valuable consideration or process it for targeted advertising in the manner described in the provision titled, " Marketing and Advertising," each as further detailed in the table below.

Below is a summary of the categories of Personal Information we collect or receive and our purpose for processing it, if we “sell” this information or use it for targeted advertising, whether it is shared with third parties and, if so, to whom.  If we do not list a type of process purpose, it means we do not collect or receive that information for that purpose. *All browser and device information collected is pseudonymous and therefore not, considered personal information and not within the scope of the below.
