Policy Purpose and Scope
DC Stoddert Soccer staff and volunteers are often charged with handling personal identifiable information (“PII”) about youth participants to accomplish soccer-related objectives (e.g., team and tournament registrations). For this reason, it is important to understand DC Stoddert Soccer’s PII expectations and policies. PII is defined as:
"information which can be used to distinguish or trace an individual's identity, such as their name, social security number, biometric records, etc. alone, or when combined with other personal or identifying information which is linked or linkable to a specific individual, such as date and place of birth, mother’s maiden name, etc."
For the purpose of this policy, passports, medical records, financial records, educational transcripts are considered PII. This policy applies to all employees, contractors, volunteers, and members of Stoddert. This policy applies equally to information on paper or in electronic form.
This document describes DC Stoddert policies for handling the collection, access, use, and disclosure of PII. In general, this document relays that DC Stoddert Soccer’s policy is to protect and safeguard the PII of its players, members, former players and former members.

• Discuss, divulge, and/or disclose PII only to persons within the DC Stoddert Soccer organization directly concerned with the program and/or having a need to know
• Dispose of documents containing personal information when the information is no longer needed (e.g., delete e-mails, shred papers, and never place health forms or other sensitive materials in the trash)
• Report any breach of data security to Stoddert staff (e.g., laptop being stolen with team roster information), and work with Stoddert personnel to implement appropriate corrective actions to contain the breach and prevent recurrence
