Privacy Policy


The USA Clay Target League (League) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The League is the independent provider of clay target shooting sports for secondary and postsecondary schools. The League’s priorities are safety, fun, and marksmanship – in that order. As a national organization, much of our work and communication with our constituents occurs online. Because of this, it is important for the League to maintain the trust of both youth and adult participants by ensuring the privacy of our youngest constituents. While it is necessary for the League to collect information for certain online initiatives (, we intend to only use the information for the stated purpose on each website. The League will never sell or share any personally identifiable information with any third party.

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. We use cookies to help us identify and track visitors, their usage of the Site, and their website access preferences. Visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using the Site, with the drawback that certain features of the Site may not function properly without the aid of cookies.


Advertisements that appear on the Site are delivered to users by our advertisers. We may from time-to-time use advertising network providers to help present advertisements on the Site. Since our use of advertising networks may change from time-to-time, we encourage you to review this privacy policy periodically for changes. Advertisers and ad networks use cookies, web beacons or similar technologies on your browser to help present offers, better target and measure the effectiveness of their advertisements by using data gathered on an anonymous basis over time and across their network of Web pages to determine the preference of their audiences.

Any user providing personal data is certifying that he/she is over the age of 18. Children under the age of 13 are not eligible to use our site without parental or adult supervision. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with personally identifiable information without their consent, he or she should contact us.

We reserve the right to transfer your personal information in the event of a transfer of ownership of the USA Clay Target League such as an acquisition by or merger with another company. If an acquiring company should plan to materially change this privacy policy, we will notify you beforehand.

Partners and Sponsors

The League often links to program partners and allies, both for-profit and nonprofit. While we work hard to vet any agency we partner with, the League is not responsible for the content on their pages or for their privacy policies. Conversely, the League’s partners and sponsors are in no way liable or responsible for content posted on the League’s online platforms.


We are very concerned about safeguarding children and the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information. We limit access to personal information about you to employees and authorized who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services. Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide reasonable security for information in our possession and control, no security system can prevent against all potential security breaches, and we bear no liability for uses or disclosures of personal data or non-personal data arising in connection with the theft thereof. We bear no liability for access to, or use or disclosure of personal data if such access, use or disclosure arises in connection with the theft or disclosure (whether intentional or negligent) of such user’s password.

Application and User Security

User data in our database is accessible only through unique username and password login. No direct public access to our database is available. Users choose and are subject to login ID and password rules to minimize the chance of an unauthorized user gaining access. A session cookie is issued only to record encrypted authentication information for the duration of a specific session. The session cookie does not include the password of the user. Session cookies are destroyed once the user logs out of the system.

The League provides protection against users accidentally leaving personal information active on a computer browser screen. The application ends a user “session” if users are logged in but have not actively used the service for a set period of time. This helps prevent others from accessing users’ accounts when users leave a session and forget to log out.

Online Payments

The USA Clay Target League uses Stripe as its sole payment service provider to accept credit and debit cards. Stripe is regularly audited and is certified as PCI Level 1 Compliance – the highest available. All transactions are encrypted, and all credit card numbers and decryption information are stored separately. The League does NOT store credit card information and transactions only take place on Stripe payment systems.
