Effective January 1, 2016
This Policy describes how we treat personal information we collect both online and offline. This includes on our websites or in our apps. It also includes at our box offices or in phone or email interactions you have with us.
Contact information. For example, we might collect your name and street address, or billing/shipping address. We might also collect your phone number or email; the domain name and/or the e-mail address of visitors to our website; aggregate information on what pages on our website users access or visit; information volunteered by the user, such as through registration on the website; e-mail update requests and general requests for information; and information about your transactions with us and transactions with third parties.
Information you post. For example, we collect information you post in a public space on our website or on a third-party social media site.
Demographic information. We may collect information about events you like or resources you download. We might collect this as part of a survey, for example. From time-to-time, our Site may request information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and, therefore, the user has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code). Contact information may be shared with the contest or survey sponsors and may be used to notify the winners and award prizes. The terms of a contest may provide, among other things that the identities of the contest winners may be made public. Survey information may also be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of the Site. We may use an intermediary to conduct these surveys or contests and they may use “personally identifiable information” for a secondary purpose.
Other information. If you use our website, we may collect information about the browser you’re using. We might look at what site you came from, or what site you visit when you leave us.
