What Information is Collected and How is it Used?

SpeechEase collects personally identifiable information when you register for a SpeechEase account, when you use SpeechEase services, and when you visit SpeechEase pages. When you register with SpeechEase, we ask for your name and email address. Once you register and sign in to our services, you are not anonymous. SpeechEase automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser including your IP Address, SpeechEase cookie information, the page you requested, and certain browser information.

  • the tournament manager of the tournaments you attend,
  • tournament tab room personnel of the tournaments you attend,
  • and website visitors if the tournament manager has made results public.

Is My Information Shared or Disclosed?

SpeechEase will share your information with tournament managers for the sole purpose of contacting you for that specific tournament. SpeechEase makes a good faith effort to ensure that all prospective tournament managers are affiliated with a school or speech team prior to allowing these entities to access this information. SpeechEase does not sell or rent your personally identifiable information to any other entities. SpeechEase may send personally identifiable information about you to other companies or persons if: we respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, and/or we find that your actions on our web sites violate the SpeechEase Terms of Use or any other usage guidelines.
