To better protect your privacy, and to help ensure a rewarding online experience for all visitors, we provide this Policy summarizing our online information practices and explaining the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.
This Policy describes what information the Website collects from visitors (hereafter “you”, “visitors” or “users”) to our Website, how such information is used and stored, when such information may be disclosed to third parties, how such information is protected and how users can control the use and disclosure of such information.
This Policy applies only to the Website and does not apply to any other information collected by Saban Brands LLC or its affiliated entities through any other means. By accessing the Website, you are consenting to this Policy.
We are committed to providing a fun, safe and secure Website and are dedicated to safeguarding all personal information collected online and to helping our visitors learn how to exercise control over personal information while exploring the Internet.
The Website is intended for an adult audience and is not specifically directed to children. However, because visitors to the Website may include children, we make efforts to ensure that children access only the content that is appropriate for them. In addition, we employ special measures to help children protect their privacy while online. Except as expressly otherwise stated in this Policy and except in accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and other applicable laws, we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under age 13 who may visit the Website.
I. The Information We Collect
There are three general categories of information collected from Website visitors:
(a) user information requested by the Website (“User Information”);
(b) information automatically collected by the Website from the electronic device (e.g., computer, laptop, tablet, smart phone) and Internet browser which the visitor is using to access the Website (“Computer Information”); and,
(c) information collected by third-party website analytics providers and other public forums (if any) partners (“Third-Party Collected Information”) to whom we have granted access to the Website.
Here is a more detailed summary of the three categories of information collected from Website visitors.
(a) User Information.
We may ask visitors to provide the visitor’s name, email address, city or state of residence, age and gender. We will only ask, and visitors are only required to provide, information that is reasonably necessary to participate in the particular activity.
We will collect email addresses from entrants so that we may contact the winners of the promotion. Any email addresses collected from entrants to a prize promotion will be used on a one-time basis. After the prize promotion has been concluded, we will remove the entrant email addresses from the applicable Website database.
Special Notice Concerning Children Under Age 13:
(i) If we have knowledge that a child under age 13 has provided to us an email address for use in connection with a customer service or support inquiry, we will not store such email address in a retrievable form. Rather, we will use a “hash” or unique code generated from the email address that will allow us on a one-time basis to respond to the customer service or support inquiry from that child. After we respond to the child’s inquiry or request, we will promptly delete the child’s email address from our database.
(b) Computer Information.
When you visit our Website, we may collect certain information from your electronic device and browser, such as the current Internet protocol address and the type of computer operating system you are using (e.g., Microsoft Windows or Mac OS), the type of browser you are using (e.g., Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome), the domain name of the Internet service provider, your activities while visiting our Website, your activities while playing games or utilizing services on the Website (e.g., which of our Web pages you viewed or which games you played), and the advertisements you have been shown.
We use the aforementioned information to assists us in the internal operation of our Website and to help us improve the design and content of our Website to provide visitors with a better experience on the Website. Section III below on “Cookies and Web Beacons” will provide further information on how Computer Information may be collected from your electronic device and Internet browser.

These third parties gather information in the aggregate with respect to visitors to the Website, the pages of the Website which are viewed by the visitors, and other information with respect to the Internet activities of visitors. These analytics providers do not collect personally identifiable information.

We never sell, rent, or otherwise share our visitors’ personal information with third parties for direct marketing purposes without appropriate consent. Sometimes, we use agents or contractors to provide services to our visitors, such as helping us conduct a prize promotion (such as a contest or sweepstakes), sending prizes to winners, or providing customer service related to activities on the Website. In these cases, we require the agent or contractor to keep the information confidential and to use it only for the specific services they are performing. We may on occasion combine information we collect through our Website with information that we collect from other sources. We also may aggregate, use and share our visitors’ information with third parties to analyze Website usage.
III. Cookies and Web Beacons
We, and our third party service providers and/or our partners may also use other tracking technologies such as “Web beacons” or clear .gifs or similar technologies.

For example, web beacons can be used to count the users who visit a web page or to deliver cookies to the browsers of visitors viewing that page. We, our third party service providers and/or our partners may use web beacons on our Website from time to time to help measure and research the effectiveness of the advertisements.
