Questions about the Policy

To our website visitors - The Lustgarten Foundation (“the Foundation”) and CSC Holdings, LLC (“Cablevision”) respect your privacy rights. This website Privacy Policy ("Privacy Policy") is designed to provide you with information about how the Lustgarten Foundation and Cablevision protect your privacy in connection with your use of this website.

A. How we collect visitor information
The Lustgarten Foundation and Cablevision operate this website. In this Privacy Policy, "we," "us," “the Foundation,” “Cablevision," and "our" refer collectively to the Lustgarten Foundation and Cablevision. We use the term "visitor" to refer to a person who accesses any part of the website for any amount of time.

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.

Personally Identifiable Information does not include aggregated data, anonymized information, or other information that does not identify a particular person. Your zip code and gender are examples of types of data we collect that are not Personally Identifiable Information. We may generate anonymized or aggregated information from the information we collect. This is information from which any Personally Identifiable Information has been removed. Anonymized or aggregated information does not identify you. Our collection, use, and disclosure of anonymized and aggregated information are not subject to any of the restrictions in this Privacy Policy. Anonymized or aggregated information may include, among other things, Internet server and browser identification, the Internet service provider, duration of visit, and domain type. This aggregated information will not reveal any Personally Identifiable Information about any specific visitor. We use anonymized or aggregated information to improve website services, to gauge the effectiveness of the website, and to improve and enhance visitors' experiences on the website.

We may also collect visitor information in the following ways:

Cookies. Similar to most website operators, we use "cookies" to collect information about your visit to our website and to manage information concerning your preferences. A cookie is a small encrypted computer code added to a file on your computer as a record of its visit. It does not collect or provide your name or any other personal information about you. It can, however, be used by this website to note information about your visit, such as your type of web browser, operating system and Internet Protocol address, to better tailor the site for you. It can also be used to recognize you when you return as a repeat visitor to our website. We use cookies, for example, to monitor the times when visitors access the website, to track the number of giveaways you enter, to estimate the audience size of the website, and to track visitor preferences. Cookies do not allow the website to access Personally Identifiable Information that you have not otherwise provided. You can control what cookies are accepted by your computer through the settings on your web browser or by deleting them from your computer. Doing so, however, may limit the personalization available to you.

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.

B. How we use visitor information
We use Personally Identifiable Information collected from visitors for several important purposes, including:

  • 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.

You acknowledge and agree that we may disclose your Personally Identifiable Information if we are required to do so by law, if you give your consent, or if we have a good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary (a) to comply with applicable law, a subpoena, or other legal process; (b) to investigate violations of this Privacy Policy; (c) to respond to claims that any content violates the rights of third parties; (d) to enable us to provide services or to conduct legitimate business activities related to the website; and (e) to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of the public, the Foundation, Cablevision, its agents, its users, or the website.

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
Visitors may decide to make a donation to The Lustgarten Foundation through a link on this website, which directs visitors to a Foundation affiliate site. Our service providers may handle some of these transactions. If you choose to use these services, our service providers may request that you provide your Personally Identifiable Information to them so that they can process your donation. These service providers usually have their own privacy policies and terms of use. After you leave this website, information you disclose to a service provider and information the service provider collects from you will be subject to its privacy policy and terms of use. The Foundation and Cablevision are not responsible for its service providers' collection, use, or disclosure of information.

This website may include banner ads and links to websites of our affiliates and other entities. These affiliates and other entities may solicit and collect Personally Identifiable Information and may store cookies on website visitors' computers. When you leave this website to visit the website of our affiliate or of another entity, you will be subject to the privacy policy and terms of use agreement of that website operator. The Foundation and Cablevision are not responsible for the ads, links, content, activities, or information practices of other websites.

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.

H. Notice to visitors from outside the U.S.
The website is published in the United States. By visiting this website, by using services offered through the website, or by providing Personally Identifiable Information to us or to our service providers, you agree that we may collect, use, and disclose your Personally Identifiable Information as described in this Privacy Policy, including by transferring such information from the country where you live to the United States.
