SEE Virtual Worlds Operations, LLC (“SEE”) has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. We are dedicated to safeguarding any personal information collected on the website. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website: http://www.seeglobalentertainment.com.
The Information We Collect and How We Collect It
SEE will never require you to give more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in any online activity. You can enjoy our website without providing any personally identifiable information (“PII”).
However, we may request a user name and email address when you submit a form through the “Contact Us” portion of our website so that we may respond to your inquiry. We collect the email address for the sole purpose of responding directly on a one-time basis to the specific inquiry, after which the email address is deleted. For some of our online activities – such as polls or surveys – we may ask you to provide information that is not personally identifiable, such as country of residence or a favorite color.
Additionally, we may passively collect certain non-personally identifiable computer information, such as the type of computer operating system (e.g., Windows XP or Mac OS), your IP Address, the web browser (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer) being used, the frequency with which you visit various parts of our sites, and information regarding the Internet service provider, in order to make our sites more interesting and useful to you and for various purposes related to our business. We may collect this non-personally identifiable information through the use of software technologies such as unique identifiers or “cookies.” Cookies are small text files that we place in visitors’ computer browsers to store their preferences. You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you won’t have access to many features that make your Web experience smoother, and some of our services may not function properly.
How We Use, Disclose and Store the Information We Collect
In addition to the purposes described above, we may actively collect and use email addresses and user names to track usage and to ensure users are following the website’s terms and conditions. We may use an email address and user name to ban a user temporarily or permanently from our website if that user engages in inappropriate conduct on the site. We also may use information in the aggregate to analyze site usage, as well as to offer products, programs, or services.
We may disclose information where we are required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena, or where we disclose information to service providers or other group companies who provide support for the operations of our website and who do not use or disclose the information for any other purpose. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we also may disclose PII in response to a law enforcement agency’s or other public agency’s request or if we feel that such disclosure may prevent the instigation of a crime, facilitate an investigation related to public safety, protect the security or integrity of our website, or enable us to take precautions against liability.
If we sell all or part of our business or make a sale or transfer of our assets or are otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, we may transfer PII to a third party as part of that transaction, to the extent permitted by applicable law.
Collection of Information for Third-Party Sites and Sponsors
At the time you provide your PII, we will notify you of your options regarding our use of your PII, including whether we will share it with outside companies. This section describes the types of other companies that may want to send you information about their products and services and therefore may want to share your personal information, provided you have given us permission to do so.
We may share your PII with companies that are affiliated with us. Provided you have given us permission, we may also share your PII with advertisers and business partners that are not affiliated with us but would like to send you information about their products and services. For example, we may offer a sweepstakes or contest in conjunction with a co-sponsor that may have special offers or promotions that might be of interest to our users. However, you will always have the opportunity to instruct us not to share your information with third parties when PII is collected.
We may also enter into agreements with outside companies that possess the technology that allows us to customize the advertising and marketing messages you receive on our website. Your non-PII and click stream data about your activities on our website may be shared with these companies so this customization can be accomplished. These companies will not share your information with any third party or use it for any other purpose. Anonymous click stream and demographic information may also be shared with our advertisers and business partners.
Third Party Websites
The security of your personal information is important to us. We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect online.
