CIRCUS Interactive, LLC (“CIRCUS”) is strongly committed to protecting privacy and has adopted privacy principles which guide how we manage and protect personal data.
As part of our commitment, we strive to protect the privacy of visitors to the sites that we operate (collectively, the “Site”). You can navigate the majority of the Site without giving us any personal information which identifies you. However, sometimes we need additional information about you in order to provide you with information or services you want to receive from us.
In today’s digital world, privacy should be important to you and is just as important to us at CIRCUS. We provide this notice so that you can understand our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.
The Information We Collect
CIRCUS collects two basic types of information:
Personally identifiable information: This is information that personally identifies one individual from another or enables you to be individually contacted (for example, names, e-mail addresses and other contact information). This information is voluntarily provided to us by Site visitors and is used by us for the purpose of responding to user submissions and fulfilling requests for further information about our services.
Aggregate user and tracking information: This information gives us insights on how Site visitors use our site. This data is anonymous and does not contain any personally identifiable information. We use this information to ensure that our website, e-mails and marketing efforts continue to appeal to Site visitors and clients.
Information you voluntarily provide to CIRCUS
CIRCUS only collects personally identifiable information that you voluntarily provide, for example, when you use our “Contact” feature or sign up for our newsletter. Examples of such personally identifiable information that you provide to us may include, among other information, your name, company name, phone number, physical address and email address.
Other information CIRCUS collects
When you visit the Site, we may automatically collect some information about your visit using cookies, log analysis software and other tracking technologies.
The Way We Use Information
We store the information you provide in a secure database in order to provide you with the information, products, and/or services you request and may be used to provide you with additional information about our services we believe may be of interest to you. The information is stored for a time period and in a manner relevant to responding to your request unless you request that it be removed. The information you provide us will be shared with CIRCUS employees and service providers to the extent necessary to administrate our systems and/or accommodate your request.
For example, if you provide your name, mailing address, telephone and/or email address and request more information about CIRCUS services, this information will be shared with appropriate CIRCUS personnel to fulfill your request. This information will not be shared with non-affiliated third parties without your consent.
We use non-identifying and aggregate information about the use of the Site to improve the navigation, content, and design of the Site. This information may include, for example, the most and least requested pages, analyzing traffic regarding specific features, and the number of users from the U.S. and other countries, among other things.
We may operate contests, sweepstakes or other promotions through the Site, which may require registration in order to enter. Your personally identifiable information may be used by us to contact you for winner notification, prize delivery confirmation or other promotional purposes. Your entry in the contest or sweepstakes may also result in your being added to our mailing lists as well as those of our promotional partners or clients associated with the contest or sweepstakes. Acceptance of a prize may require you (unless prohibited by law) to allow us to post publicly some of your information on the Site, such as in social media or on a winner’s page, in the event you win a contest or sweepstakes.
Surveys or Voting
From time-to-time we may request personally identifiable information from you via surveys or voting polls. Participation is voluntary and you will have the opportunity to decide whether or not to disclose information. At times, you may have to register to vote or to take part in a survey.
CIRCUS understands that the safety of your personal information is extremely important to you. Accordingly, CIRCUS uses reasonable technological, physical and other measures to keep your information protected from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, taking into due account the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the personal information. Due to the nature of the Internet and related technology, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information and CIRCUS expressly disclaims any such obligation.
How You Can Access or Correct Your Information
You may access, update or remove the information you provided to us by contacting us. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps (including seeking additional information or documentation) to verify your identity before updating or removing your information. Upon receiving your email with the request to update or remove your information, our privacy team will log the receipt of your request and will contact the appropriate data holder within the company in order to enable them to process your request. The information you provide us may be archived or stored periodically by us according to backup processes conducted in the ordinary course of business. Information stored as part of this backup process will be deleted in due course on a regular schedule.
Links to Other Websites
Our Site contains links to other websites. CIRCUS is not responsible for any websites that it does not own or operate. You should carefully review the privacy policies and practices of other websites that you link to from the Site, as we cannot control or be responsible for their privacy practices.
Social Media Sites
Our Site may contain links to third party social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter or YouTube. The operators of such social media sites may collect personal information and use and disclose such information in accordance with their own privacy policies. For each such site, you should check with the site operator regarding its policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information.
Our Site is not intended for children under the age of 13. We will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from Site visitors in this age group. We encourage parents to talk to their children about their use of the Internet and the information they disclose online. If a child has provided us with personally identifiable information, a parent or guardian of that child may contact us via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org if they would like this information deleted from our records. We will use reasonable efforts to delete the child’s information from our databases.
Notification of Changes
Accessing and updating your information; Limiting or Opting out
Visitors who would like to access, correct, update or delete any personally identifiable information may contact us with a request to do so at email@example.com.
Similarly, Site users who wish to subscribe or unsubscribe to our marketing and informational communications or limit our use of any personally identifiable information in any way can do so by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We may take a reasonable period of time to respond to any request to update or modify any information, limit use of information or to opt out of or unsubscribe from any communications. If you request the deletion, modification or limitation of use of your personal information maintained by us, such information may be retained for a period of time in our backup systems as a precaution against system failures. Some information may be retained for longer periods as required by law, contract or auditing requirements. In some circumstances we will not be able to limit use of your personal information without unsubscribing you from communications or deleting your information.
