AlabamaBowling.Com collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration. This information may be used to report aggregate information to our advertisers. An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're conntected to the Internet.

When guests request pages from AlabamaBowling.Com sites, the server logs the guests' IP addresses. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that a user's session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us.

While AlabamaBowling.Com strives to protect its users' personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk.
