To sign up for or participate in any features or functions, you may be required to provide us with certain personally identifiable information or other information about you in order for us to personalize and/or allow you to use such features and functions. For example, when you subscribe to e-mail newsletters, participate in competitions or games, purchase merchandise, etc., you may be required to provide your email address, date of birth and zip code. Further, for example, to the extent we offer such services, if you order any of our various products, in addition to your name and contact information, we will also collect and may maintain your billing address, shipping address, product selections, your credit card or other payment instrument information, your order number and information about your computer’s internet address and website which may have referred or directed you to the Services (e.g. the referring URL). Your credit card or debit card number is collected via a secure transmission.
There may be a separate registration process to enter promotions such as contests and sweepstakes which may require the submission of all or some of the following: your first and last name, street address, city, state and zip code, email address, telephone number and date of birth. Additional information may be requested depending on the specific promotion, but submission of such information may be optional. The promotion’s entry page and/or rules will provide the specific requirements. You may also have the opportunity to opt-in to receive special promotions or offers from our third party advertisers, sponsors or promotional partners as a result of your use of the Services in connection with many of these types of promotions.
If we collect such information, in most instances, the applicable page(s) or location(s) within the Services will include statements regarding what information is required for the elements of the Services to function properly and functionality for you to submit the requested or required information. In addition to the list above, there may also be opportunities for you to grant permission for use of other of your information in a manner set forth on the applicable page(s) within the Services. You may choose not to provide certain information, but some of our features require personally identifiable information in order to be accessible and/or operate effectively.
Information You Give Us. We receive and store any information you enter on our Services, submit through emails or other communication, or provide to us in any other way (including but not limited to: reviews, comments, video submissions, etc.). By submitting such content, you represent and warrant that:
We may collect information when you interact with the Services, for example, when you subscribe to newsletters, participate in competitions or games or other activities on our Services, purchase merchandise, etc. When using the Services, you may be asked to provide various types of personally identifiable information or other information to enhance your experience on the Services.
These Tracking Technologies collect “click stream” data and additional information regarding your visits to the Services (such as your visits to the Site’s webpages, use of our features and purchasing history or preferences), may collect such information across multiple sessions on the Services and other websites offered by our affiliates and may also collect your IP address or some other identifier unique to the Device you use to access the Services (“Identifier”). An Identifier is automatically assigned to any Device you use to access the Services. Your personally identifiable information is not collected as part of this process but we may associate anonymous information collected by Tracking Technologies with personally identifiable information. By visiting the Services, whether as a registered user or otherwise, you acknowledge, understand and hereby agree that you are giving us your consent to track your activities and your use of the Services through these Tracking Technologies and that we may use Tracking Technologies in the emails we send to you.
We may additionally use a variety of third party advertising networks, data exchanges, traffic measurement service providers, marketing analytics service providers and other third parties (collectively, “Third Party Advertising Service Providers”) to, for example, serve advertisements on the Services, facilitate targeting of advertisements and/or measure and analyze advertising effectiveness and/or traffic on the Services (“Targeting Services”). These Third Party Advertising Service Providers may enable us to display advertisements based on your visits to the Services and other websites you have visited. Targeting Services enable us to, among other things, help deliver advertisements or other content to you for products and services that you might be interested in, to prevent you from seeing the same advertisements too many times and to conduct research regarding the usefulness of certain advertisements to you.
These Third Party Advertising Service Providers do not have access to Tracking Technologies set by the Services except to the extent necessary to provide services to the Services. The Third Party Advertising Service Providers, as well as advertisers, may themselves set and access their own Tracking Technologies on your Device if you choose to have Tracking Technologies enabled in your browser (or, for Flash cookies, if you have not removed them) and/or they may otherwise have access to information about you.
Location Data We Collect. When you use our Service we may solicit your permission to collect your location data. Please be advised, for some features within our Application to function we must confirm your current location and therefore some features will not be available if you choose not to provide your location data to us. The specificity of the location data collected may depend on a number of factors, including the Device you are using (e.g. laptop, smartphone, tablet) and how you are connected to the internet (e.g. via cable broadband connection, WiFi, etc.). If you enable location services for our Application, we may collect location data (e.g. zip code) periodically as you use or leave open our Application. We may also use this data internally or in conjunction with our third party service providers to customize your experience and provide offers that may be relevant to you. Depending on the platform you use to access our Application you may be able to control from within the settings on your Device or the Application(s) whether location data is collected.
Social Networking. When using our Services or when using certain third party social networking services (e.g., Facebook or Twitter) (each and collectively, a “Social Network”), you may have the option to connect your Services information and activity with your Social Network information and activity and engage with our content on or through the Social Network, plug-ins and application(s). If you authorize such a connection and engage with our content on or through a Social Network, you permit us to share or publish information about your activity on our Services, with that Social Network and its users, and to access certain of your Social Network information (e.g., name, e-mail address, photo, gender, birthday, location, your list of friends, people you follow and/or who follow you, your posts or ‘likes’), as disclosed by you at the time you consent to the connection, to deliver the content or as part of the operation of the application. We may also obtain non-personally identifiable information (e.g., content viewed, game performance, high scores, and information about advertisements within the content you have been shown or may have clicked on) from your interaction with our content. We may combine information which we obtain through social networking sites or applications with information we obtain directly through the Services or from other sources.
We acquire information from other trusted sources to update or supplement the information you provided or we collected automatically. Local law may require that you authorize the third party to share your information with us before we can acquire it.
On an aggregate basis only, we collect comprehensive demographic information, and other non-personally identifying information about users of the Services. Such information can also include your voluntary survey responses, information on how you access and search the Site, and information regarding the domain names and/or IP addresses of browsers that visit the Site.

We may also collect anonymous information about you (e.g., your IP address) to personalize your experience and deliver more relevant content and/or advertising messages.
