Registration form.

You must register to play BaseballSim.Com. The form to do so asks for some mandatory information and other information that is optional. We require you to provide your name, e-mail address and Zip code. You must also select a user name and password. If you are joining a private league that requires payment, BaseballSim.Com uses PayPal.com to handle all payments. We do not store any credit card or address information on BaseballSim.Com servers.  We do store the transaction id and the email address of the payer that is delivered to us from PayPal.  This is used to send a confirmation email of the transaction.  This email address is not used anywhere else within the site.  So if this address is different from the address used as the primary address for the UserID, you will not need to supply email preferences for the PayPal email address.

When you register, you can indicate whether or not you want to receive special offers or be contacted about league news. You also have the option to allow other members to see your e-mail address. Owners are only permitted to use these e-mail addresses for offering trades and other BaseballSim.Com business. Any use of these addresses for anything other than BaseballSim.Com business is strictly prohibited. Violators will receive one warning and then be expelled from the league.  Please note that if you choose to reveal your information to other owners, BaseballSim.Com is not responsible for violations of this policy. You can always update your contact preferences by visiting the 'Edit Info' link.
