We Collect Some Information Directly
On certain occasions when you interact with Our Platform, including, without limiting the generality of that interaction, by purchasing from Shop, signing up for a newsletter, if any, responding to a survey, if any, or entering a contest, if any, you may submit information of your own accord or be asked to do so to participate in certain activities. Some examples of information that you may submit and that we may collect may include:
We take information security seriously, but no electronic data transmission, maintenance, storage, or use of information can be guaranteed as 100% secure. We cannot assure, insure, or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. You use Our Platform and provide your information to us at your own risk.
We and Third Parties Collect Some Information Automatically
Cookies are data files placed on a device when you use it to visit Our Platform.
Pixel tags are transparent graphic images, sometimes called web beacons or tracking beacons, placed on a web page or in an email indicating that the web page or email was viewed and perhaps telling your browser to get content from another server.
When you use Our Platform, we and third parties may automatically recognize information such as the following:
We or third parties may use a Device Identifier to, among other things, administer Our Platform, help diagnose problems with our servers, analyze trends, track your and other users’ web page movements, help identify you and your shopping cart, and gather demographic information that is aggregated and anonymized or de-identified.
We or third parties may use Usage Information to, among other things, keep Our Platform fresh and interesting to you and other users and conduct market research.
We may also receive information about you from third parties.
In general, our main purposes in collection, usage, and storage of Personal Information are to further our mission by making Our Platform be more interesting to and work better for you, by staying in touch with you about our events or offerings that may interest you, by responding to your questions and requests, by conducting market research, and by complying with our license and other legal and contractual obligations. For example and without limiting the generality of those purposes, we may email you to invite you to join a new newsletter list, participate in a survey or an event that we or our sponsor or partner, if any, sponsors, or enter a contest. We may collect your location based information to provide you with broadcast stations in your area where you can experience our programs and to tailor advertisements and offers we may send you; we may share that information with third parties for market research and data analysis. And we may use your Personal Information for other purposes disclosed to you when you provide that Personal Information or other information to us or otherwise with your consent. Our usage of your Personal Information is necessary for our legitimate interest in and purposes of staying in touch with you, administering and promoting Our Platform, and complying with our license and other legal and contractual obligations.
If you do not wish us or third parties to contact you, or if you wish to modify, verify, correct, or delete any of your Personal Information collected through Our Platform, please indicate your preference when you submit your contact information by using the opt-out links provided at the bottom of our emails and newsletters, if any, or by contacting us at Contact. We will do our best to make your requested change timely.
In accordance with our routine record keeping, we may delete certain records containing your Personal Information. We have no obligation to store any Personal Information and, without limiting the generality of our disclaimers under our Terms of Service, we disclaim any liability arising out of or related to the destruction or deletion of any Personal Information.
Aggregated and Anonymized or De-Identified Information
We may use information that has been aggregated and anonymized or de-identified to assess and improve Our Platform, including, without limiting the generality of those purposes, to enhance your user experience, to select as vendors third parties that best meet our or your needs, and to help foundation and corporate funders and other sponsors better understand our audience. We may sometimes produce data and analysis results with this aggregated and anonymized or de-identified information that help us understand our users and their interactions with Our Platform. To accomplish these objectives, we may share aggregated and anonymized or de-identified information and the resulting data and analysis with third parties, which information may incorporate or comprise but not separately state Personal Information.
Opting Out of Tagging or Tracking
If you wish to disable cookies, pixel tags, mobile analytics software, or other tagging or tracking technologies, or reduce the numbers of them that you receive from us, your browser settings may enable you to do so. Disabling, deleting, or reducing the number of cookies may change or reduce the functionality of Our Platform in certain contexts. Users who wish to opt out of Google Analytics data collection may use Google’s own browser add-on to do so.
If you do not want to see personalized advertising, you may opt out by contacting us at Contact or visiting http://www.aboutads.info. If you opt out of personalized advertising, we may continue tracking your use of Our Platform for our analytics, operations, market research, security, and other business purposes.
Information Security and Storage
We use industry standard physical, digital, and training-based security measures to protect user information against theft and misuse. All Our Platform websites are protected by Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) security features. Our Platform’s collection and handling of payment information is PCI-compliant.
We may engage third parties to help us develop, operate, and improve Our Platform, including, without limiting the generality of those activities, service providers that host or operate Our Platform, analyze data, process transactions and payments, fulfill orders or provide customer service, advertisers, ad network providers, sponsors, partners, or other third parties that participate in or administer our promotions, contests, sweepstakes, or surveys or provide marketing or promotional assistance and “powered by” partners or partners in co-branded sites, if any.
We also may use, or share with our advertisers, ad network providers, sponsors, partners, or other third parties your Personal Information in connection with marketing, promotional, and other offers, product information, and the respective third parties’ analytics and market research.
Those third parties receive Personal Information only as reasonably necessary to complete services for us and are contractually bound to maintain confidentiality of information and prohibited from using or disclosing Personal Information without permission from us. In certain instances, we may agree to allow a vendor to use aggregated data about activity on Our Platform for general improvement or benchmarking purposes but only if this data is anonymized or de-identified so that none of our users can be identified from it as individuals.
For Mailing Lists
It is our policy not to sell or exchange email or mailing, billing, residence, or shipping addresses or telephone numbers with any other company or organization. If we want to share this information with someone else (e.g., without limiting the generality of circumstances of our sharing, if we collect your email address while ticketing an event and want to share it with our co-presenter), we will ask for your permission before sharing it.
We may share your Personal Information with other persons primarily for business and operational purposes. If any of us or those other persons is involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganization, or sale of assets (including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, a foreclosure upon assets constituting collateral for a loan), your Personal Information and other information may be sold or transferred as part of that transaction.
As Required By Law
If we determine on a good faith basis that we are required by law (e.g., without limiting the generality of that requirement, pursuant to any subpoena or order, judgment, or decree of any judicial or other governmental agency or authority) to share your Personal Information or other information, we will endeavor to share it only to the extent we determine is reasonably necessary to comply with that requirement.
We do not knowingly solicit, collect, use, or disclose information other than from persons (a) at or above the legal age of majority in the respective jurisdictions of their primary legal residence and (b) in locations where use of the respective portion of Our Platform is lawful. If you become aware that your child or ward under that legal age of majority has provided us with information without your consent, please contact us; at your request, or, if we determine that a user is under that legal age of majority, we will not use and will work to delete that child’s Personal Information from our files within a reasonable time unless and until that child’s parent or guardian consents to our maintaining and using that Personal Information.
Because we value the longevity of our relationships with our users, we generally retain user information in our database. If you would like to access, transfer, review, or correct your Personal Information in our database or to request that it be removed, deleted, or restricted in use, please contact us at Contact. Depending on your location or country of residence or citizenship, you may have a legal right to make these requests and to contact supervisory authorities if you are not satisfied with our response.
It may not always be possible to remove or delete completely all your information from our databases without some residual data. We also will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our license, legal, and contractual obligations, resolve disputes, enforce agreements to which we are a party or by which we are bound or benefit, and fulfill our administrative or security needs or requirements.
