Privacy Policy

If you require any more information or have any questions about our privacy policy, please feel free to contact us.

At (HP), we respect your privacy while providing you with our service. This privacy policy document outlines the types of personal information that is received and collected by HP and how it is used.

Personal Information

As we respect the privacy of our visitors, we ask only for minimal personal information used to identify you including, but not limited to, your username, name, address and e-mail address. This information is used solely for the purposes of administering the website and will not be sold, distributed or displayed to any entities or individuals outside of Hosted Pools. The manager or administrator of any pool you are a member of will also have access to your name and email address, for the purpose of administering their pool. Other members of any pool you are a member of will be able to see your name and username, but not your personal information.

Log Files

Like many other Web sites, Hosted Pools makes use of log files. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol ( IP ) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider ( ISP ), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses, and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.

Why we Collecting this Information

Collecting your email address enables us to make the site easier to use for you. For example, if you forget your password, the website can automatically send you a new password email.

Collecting the anonymous demographic and behavioural information from the log files, assists us in improving our service. Knowing where visitors spend alot of time on the site, what type of browsers they use, etc., is very valuable when planning and developing upgrades and adding new features.


All passwords are one-way encrypted before being stored in our database, so no one from Hosted Pools can read them, even those with direct database access.

Site News

  • Feb 4, 2023 - We've completed our updates, and the site is available again. If you notice any issues, please let us know as soon as possible so we can try to resolve them quickly.
  • Jan 31, 2023 - As this coming weekend is an off-weekend for both the NHL and NFL as far as games that count go, we are planning to do some server upgrades. The site may be intermittently unavailable through the weekend.
  • Jan 5, 2023 - The NFL has officially cancelled the Week 17 game between Buffalo and Cincinnati. As a result, our site policy treats any selection of either team the same as No Pick, consistent with what we did during the Covid affected seasons. That said, some pool managers are making other accommodations with their pools, and we're willing to work with them to do so. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out via the contact page.
  • Jan 2, 2023 - Tonight's Bills/Bengals game has been postponed by the NFL. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Damar Hamlin, along with his family and both teams on the field tonight. We will follow up with more information as the league makes it available.
