INFORMATION THAT THE PALEY CENTER COLLECTS:
The Paley Center gathers personal information about visitors to the Paley Center Site ("Site Visitors") from four different sources: (a) personal information that individual Site Visitors provide when using or registering for full access to the Site or to use one or more of our services, including without limitation our calendar service and any forums; (b) personal and contact information that Site Visitors provide when voluntarily participating in contests, sweepstakes, and other promotions; (c) through merchandise, membership and other service purchase transactions through the Paley Center Site; and (d) information that institutions such as schools and universities provide when registering to use one or more of our services. In addition, user information may be aggregated for tracking data derived by tallying and identifying users' page views throughout our Site, by depositing and tracking cookies, by logging IP addresses, identifying browser type, and through other technologies. Such information enables us to better tailor our content to our Site Visitors' needs and to help advertisers and partners better understand the demographics of our audience. More specifically, the Paley Center may gather user information through the following processes:
- General Data Collection
To enhance your experience with our Site, some of our webpages may use "cookies." Cookies are small text files containing information such as your preferences and other information, which the Paley Center uses to make using the Paley Center Site more enjoyable. Cookies may be used to store user information such as your user ID and login where available, and/or other information including the number and nature of pages visited by Site Visitors.
The Paley Center Newsletter
Unless you opt out as provided below, any Site Visitor who registers for full access to the Site you will automatically receive a free email subscription to the paleycenter.org Newsletter and various other email updates and bulletins that the Paley Center sends out on a periodic basis containing items that the Paley Center hopes will be of interest to Site Visitors. You may remove yourself from this mailing list by following the Unsubscribe instructions contained in each email that the Paley Center sends.
The Paley Center may provide message boards and other forums on our Site for discussing various topics (collectively, the "Forums"). Although any Site Visitor may read postings in a Forum, only registered Site Visitors can make posts. Please note that information you post to a Forum will be available for any user of that service to read, and is therefore no longer private.
Various Periodic Surveys/Polls
The Paley Center may ask Site Visitors to participate in surveys from time to time which are typically aimed at obtaining general or demographic information about Site Visitors. Information obtained in these surveys may be connected with individual Site Visitors and is used to better market our services. Participation is voluntary.
Sweepstakes and Contests
If you purchase products or services on our Site, the Paley Center may collect additional information from you, such as your address, phone number, payment information, or shipping information. The Paley Center will not release payment information to third parties except as necessary to complete a transaction between you and such third party, or to otherwise fulfill your order. Credit card transactions are handled by a third-party service provider, which receives the credit card number and other personal information only to verify the credit card number and process transactions.
Your information may be shared with the Paley Center's joint venturers, sponsors, partners, and licensees with whom the Paley Center has entered into sharing agreements (collectively, the "the Paley Center Partners") in order to provide you additional products or services. The information the Paley Center collects may be combined with information collected by the Paley Center Partners to enable us to provide better service to you.
The Paley Center works with third parties who provide services which may include website hosting, order processing and fulfillment, credit card clearance, e-commerce affiliation, security, data analysis, emailing, and other services of an administrative nature. Personal information, including financial information, may be shared with such third parties for the purpose of providing such services. The Paley Center seeks to impose confidentiality obligations on such service providers.
LINKING TO OTHER SITES:
Please note that third parties may collect information about you, through cookies or other technologies, when you link to their websites through our Site. You acknowledge that the Paley Center does not monitor or control the information collection or privacy practices of these or any other third parties, and are not responsible for their practices or the content of their websites. The Paley Center encourages you to review the privacy policies of such third parties to understand how they collect and use information.
The Paley Center uses reasonable security methods to protect the data that resides on our servers. But because no security system is impenetrable, the Paley Center cannot guarantee the security of our servers. It is also possible that information you supply to us will be intercepted during transmission.
