A. How we collect visitor information
We may collect, maintain, and access certain information you provide and information collected from your use of the website and services available through the website. This visitor information may include information that can be associated with you personally ("Personally Identifiable Information"). Visitor information may include, among other things, your first and last name, your home addresses, your telephone number and your payment information.
We will collect Personally Identifiable Information about you when you voluntarily provide it to us. When you use website features that ask you for certain information, for example, during giveaways at select times, you provide Personally Identifiable Information. We may also collect Personally Identifiable Information if we survey visitors about various topics, including how we can improve our website and services. Responding to any such survey is entirely voluntary. You can navigate through the website without giving us Personally Identifiable Information as well.
We may also collect visitor information in the following ways:
Clear GIFs. Like many websites, we may use clear GIFs (also known as "web beacons," "Internet tags," or "pixel tags"). Clear GIFs are lines of code that allow websites to summarize overall visitor usage patterns and to provide personalized services. We may use clear GIFs, for instance, to track visitor preferences or to gather aggregated information about visitor usage patterns. We do not use clear GIFs to collect any Personally Identifiable Information about visitors.
Passive Automatic Electronic Collection. Like operators of most other websites, we collect and log information automatically, either directly or through a third party service provider. For example, we may collect your Internet Protocol ("IP") address, the name and location of your Internet Service Provider, the type and version of your browser, the length of time you visit the website, your search queries on the website, and the average number of pages you viewed. Logging your IP address does not by itself provide us with your name, email address, or home or work address. We use this log information for systems administration purposes and for technical troubleshooting. We may also use it to gather general demographic information about you, such as your general location.
- to help us fulfill service requests;
- to notify you about giveaways and events and to allow you to participate in those giveaways and events;
- to protect the security of visitors and the website;
- to help prevent fraud;
- to provide you with a website and services of enhanced value to you; and
- to improve our program and website.
We may use Personally Identifiable Information collected from prior giveaways and special events to inform you of additional giveaways and events by The Lustgarten Foundation and Cablevision. For each giveaway or special event, we will post applicable rules for the event on the website. We may also post on the website any supplemental terms, conditions, or privacy provisions for the specific event.
C. When we disclose visitor information
We may share your Personally Identifiable Information with persons or companies who help us operate the website by providing services, such as giveaway fulfillment services, maintenance and technical services, and other contractors (collectively "service providers"). We may provide your Personally Identifiable Information to other third parties when you expressly consent. We contractually require our service providers to maintain at least the same level of confidentiality for the Personally Identifiable Information we provide to them as we maintain for such information. Additionally, we require that our service providers' use of such information not exceed that needed to provide the service.
We may provide aggregated or anonymized information about visitors to our partners and affiliates. Such information may include, for example, how many persons visited a particular page or activity and the preferences and dislikes of visitors. Such information does not include Personally Identifiable Information about any individual visitor.
D. How long we will keep visitor information
The Foundation and Cablevision may retain Personally Identifiable Information and other information collected through the website for as long as is reasonable for the purposes for which it was collected.
E. How we protect visitor information
We follow industry-standard practices to protect information collected through the website. Visitors' Personally Identifiable Information is stored in databases in physically secure facilities. If we share visitor information with our affiliates, the affiliate will follow similar practices to protect Personally Identifiable Information collected through the website.
Any information transmitted over the Internet may be subject to breaches of security. Although we follow commercially reasonable practices to securely store the information we collect and to work with responsible third parties, we cannot guarantee these practices will prevent every unauthorized attempt to access, use, or disclose such information.
F. Service providers' and other third parties' collection and use of information
G. How we protect children's online privacy
This website is not directed to children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect Personally Identifiable Information from children under the age of 13. If we become aware that we have received Personally Identifiable Information of a child under 13, we will delete the information from our records. We offer parents and guardians additional guidelines to help keep their children's personal information safe and your family's Internet participation enjoyable. For more information on how to keep your family and children safe on the Internet, please visit the Internet Smarts section of Cablevision’s Power to Learn website.
