This Notice describes the types of personal data we collect, how we may
use that personal data and with whom we may share it. The term
"personal data" means information about an identifiable individual
which includes name, address, email, telephone number and other
information relating specifically to an individual.
Our Notice also describes the measures we take to protect the security
of the personal data. We also tell you how you can reach us to:
(i) access, correct, or delete the personal data that you have provided;

How You Provide It And How We Collect And Use It
Personal data is any information that can be used to identify a
specific individual, such as your name, email address, home address,
phone number and credit card information.
You may choose to provide personal data when you visit us or our
affiliates or licensees at one of our events or through our Website. If
you choose not to provide us with your personal data you may not be
able to access some of the services offered on out Website, such as
newsletters or bulletins or take part in our Promotions. Here are some
of the ways in which you may provide us with your personal data and the
types of personal data you may submit. We also explain how we (or any
of our associated companies) may use the personal data in different
ways according to the purpose for which it was provided. For example,
if you provide personal data to register for a newsletter or a text
messaging service, to enter a competition or promotion or to purchase
goods or services, we will use it to register you for or provide you
with those goods or services. We may also obtain personal data from
reputable third parties, such as credit agencies.

about our events coming up, ticket sales, features, services and other
offerings that may be of interest to you. We also may send information
or offers to selected groups of Website users on behalf of other
businesses. When we do this, we do not give those businesses your name
or address. Under certain circumstances (for example if you win a
contest) we may post your personal data on the Website. We will notify
you of this possibility when you provide the personal data and, if
possible, when the personal data is posted.

their children so that they are fully familiar with the sites visited
