1. Data We Collect And Store
We may collect and store the following information when running the Service:
Information You Provide. When you register an account, we may collect some personal information, such as your name, birth date, eMail address, school or producing organization’s postal addresses, parent/guardian/Mentor contact name and eMail, and other information. When creating a VIP or a VIP Playbill, we collect information about the stage production (the “Production”) you are documenting, including but not limited to the Production’s title, performance dates, names and biographies of the Production’s participants.
When you invite others to visit the VIP by using our eMail sharing feature, we send them a one-time eMail for that share using your contacts’ eMail addresses you have provided. We may also receive Personal Information (for example, your eMail address) through a VIP to you.
Pictures. We collect and store the pictures you upload to the Service (“Pictures”). If you add a picture to your VIP that has been previously uploaded, we may associate all or a portion of the previous file with your account rather than storing a duplicate.
Log Data. When you use the Service, we automatically record information from your Device, its software, and your activity using the Services. This may include the Device’s Internet Protocol ( “IP”) address, browser type, the web page visited before you came to our website, information you search for on our website, locale preferences, identification numbers associated with your Devices, your mobile carrier, date and time stamps associated with transactions, system configuration information, metadata concerning your Data, and other interactions with the Service.
Cookies. We also use “cookies” to collect information and improve our Services. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your Device. We may use “persistent cookies” to save your registration ID and login password for future logins to the Service. We may use “session ID cookies” to enable certain features of the Service, to better understand how you interact with the Service and to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on the Service. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all aspects of the Service.
2. How We Use Personal Information
Personal Information. In the course of using the Service, we may collect personal information that can be used to contact or identify you ( “Personal Information”). Personal Information is or may be used: (i) to provide and improve our Service, (ii) to administer your use of the Service, (iii) to better understand your needs and interests, (iv) to personalize and improve your experience, and (v) to provide or offer updates and product announcements. If you no longer wish to receive communications from us, please follow the “unsubscribe” instructions provided in any of those communications, or update your account dformation.
Geo-Location Information. Some Devices allow applications to access real-time location-based information (for example, GPS). Our Services do not collect such information from your mobile device at any time , as of the date this policy went into effect, but may do so in the future as we improve our Services. Some photos you place in the VIP may contain recorded location information. We may use this information to optimize your experience and it may be available to others if you choose to share it through VIP. If you do not wish to share pictures embedded with your geo-location information, please do not upload them. If you do not want to store location data in your photos, please consult the documentation for your camera to turn off that feature. Also, some of the information we collect from a Device, for example IP address, can sometimes be used to approximate a Device’s location.
3. Information Sharing and Disclosure
Your Use. We will display the Save the Date and pages of any VIP you have elected to make public, along with the Production’s related information and elsewhere on the Service. Any information you choose to provide should reflect how much you want others to know about the Production. Please consider carefully what information you disclose in a VIP. You can review and revise your VIPs at any time. We do not sell your personal information to third parties. We may also share or disclose your information with your consent, for example if you use a third party application to access your account (see below). Through certain features of the Service, you may also have the ability to make some of your information public. Public information may be broadly and quickly disseminated.
Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement Requests; Protection of Playbill’s Rights. We may disclose Data stored in your VIPs and information about you that we collect when we have a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with a law, regulation or compulsory legal request; (b) protect the safety of any person from death or serious bodily injury; (c) prevent fraud or abuse of the VIP user community or the program itself; (d) to protect Playbill Online’s property or other rights; or (e) where we believe that disclosure is important and appropriate. If we provide your Data to a law enforcement agency as set forth above, we likely will remove any encryption before providing the Data to law enforcement.
Non-private or Non-Personal Information. We may disclose your non-private, aggregated, or otherwise non-personal information, such as usage statistics of our Service.
4. Changing or Deleting Your Information
If you are a registered user, you may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information provided in your registration or account profile by changing your “account settings.” If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may update or delete it by making the change on your account settings. In some cases we may retain copies of your information if required by law. For questions about your Personal Information on our Service, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond to your inquiry within 30 days.
5. Data Retention
We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services, although you will be able to delete certain information within your account. If you wish to cancel your account or request that we no longer use your information to provide you services, you may delete your account here. We may retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements and copies of deleted data may continue to exist in backed up resources or in online caches.
The security of your information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information in our Service, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
We follow generally accepted standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our website, you can contact us at email@example.com.
7. Our Policy Toward Children
Our Services are not directed to persons under 13. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child (whether under 13 or under 18) has provided us with Personal Information without their consent, he or she should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will take steps to delete such information from our files immediately.
