Fear of commitment
Scope of This Policy
This Policy applies to all PII that we collect, on or after the effective date of this Policy, from individuals who provide us such information for the purpose of (1) participating in our interactive Site, (2) uploading User Content, (3) obtaining from us or our advertisers a product or service, (4) accessing the Site’s blogs, discussion forums, surveys and interactive voting, message boards, bulletin boards, chat rooms and links, (5) emailing questions or other consumer communications to SAS, (6) other legitimate use of an online user account, and (7) written or oral communications with SAS regarding any of these or other matters. This Policy also applies to all PII that we obtain from our Managing Member, Bobby Goldstein Productions, Inc. (“BGPI”), on or after the effective date of this Policy.
Information We Collect
We may collect various types of PII. For example, we may receive PII directly from Site users for the purposes outlined above. This information may include the Site user’s name, postal address, email address and telephone number. We may also collect other types of information such as gender, age, business affiliations and personal interests, which we may associate with PII. Further, if you provide opinion in connection with our Site content, you may reveal, and it may become a part of your PII, certain social or political beliefs. If you purchase a product or service through the Site, we may obtain credit card information, learn your product preferences, and more. In addition, we may collect PII from you if you participate in sweepstakes, contests, games and promotional offers.
PII From Children Under 13
Children should always get permission from their parents before using the Internet and before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, email addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet to SAS or to anyone else. We won't knowingly allow anyone under 13 to register with our Site or to provide any other PII through the Site without having first obtained parental permission to do so. If you are under 13, please do not register to use our Site or provide us with any PII about yourself without having first obtained parental permission to do so.
Protecting Your PII
We have taken precautionary measures to make all information received from our Site users and other customer communications as secure as possible against unauthorized access and use. First, SAS employees, agents and contractors must have a legitimate business reason to obtain access to your PII. Second, we do not sell or share your PII to companies outside of our affiliated companies except as specifically disclosed in this Policy or as disclosed in updates of this Policy or similar communications.
However, it may be necessary for us to provide your information to contracted third-party partners in order to respond to your inquiries and to provide you with products and services. But even in those instances, such third-party partners may only use the information provided for the specified use and purpose.
Moreover, we have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you. SAS uses reasonable administrative and technical personnel together with physical measures to safeguard PII in its possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification. In addition, SAS uses reasonable methods to make sure that PII is accurate, up-to-date and appropriately complete. Passwords and other sensitive information stored by SAS are encrypted both in transit and when stored within SAS’s online databases.
How We Use and Share the PII That We Collect
* We may send you promotional materials, and we may share your PII with BGPI and other affiliates of BGPI and third-party partners so that they can send you promotional materials. (By “promotional materials,” we mean communications that directly promote the purchase of products or services.) These promotional materials may concern our products and services, or the products and services of BGPI or another affiliate of BGPI or a third-party partner. These promotional materials may be sent to you by postal mail, email or other means.
* We may take your PII and make it non-personally identifiable, either by combining it with information about other individuals (aggregating your information with information about other individuals), or by removing characteristics (such as your name) that make the information personally identifiable to you (de-personalizing your information). We may use this non-PII for, among other purposes, research and analysis to improve our products and services.
* We may hire companies to help deliver products or services, like a shipping company that delivers a package or a company that helps fulfill prizes for a sweepstakes. In those instances, there is a need to share your information with these companies. Sometimes we also may work with other companies who help either gather your information or communicate with you.
* We may disclose PII when we believe in good faith that such disclosures (1) are required by law or (2) will help to (a) enforce contest, sweepstakes, promotions and game rules; (b) protect your safety or security, including the safety and security of property that belongs to you; and (c) protect the safety and security of SAS, BGPI, other affiliates of BGPI and our third party partners, including the safety and security of property that belongs to SAS, BGPI, other affiliates of BGPI and our third- party partners.
From time to time, we may offer you the opportunity to “opt in” or “opt out” of certain uses by SAS of your PII, or SAS’s sharing of your PII with BGPI, other affiliates of BGPI and our third-party partners.
What Kind of Information May We Obtain From BGPI
We may obtain from BGPI the same types of PII that we collect directly from our Site users.

Email Communications You should also know that unless otherwise noted, the email functionality on the Site does not provide a completely secure and confidential means of communication. It is possible that your email communication may be accessed or viewed inappropriately by another Internet user while in transit to us. If you wish to keep your information completely private, you should not use email.
We may send email communications to you related to your use of the Site, Site updates, communications regarding your or another user’s User Content, your user account, and other general matters.
Your Online Preferences
SAS uses “cookie” technology to obtain usage information from our Site users. Cookies are small bits of information that the Site places on the hard drive of your computer. Cookies remember information about your activities on our Site and enable SAS to make your visits to our Site more enjoyable. For example, cookies can store your password for easy logon to a site you have previously visited, can save your preferences for a personalized home page or can track the items you have placed in your “shopping cart” while making an online purchase. Information about your activities on the Site and other non-PII about you may also be used to limit the online ads you encounter to those we believe are consistent with your interests.
We may amend this Policy at any time. If we amend this Policy to permit material changes in the way we collect, use and share your PII, we will notify you of such changes by prominently posting notice of the changes on the Site. Any such material changes to this Policy will be effective thirty (30) calendar days following our posting. Any such material changes to this Policy may affect our use and sharing of PII that you provided to us before our notification to you of the changes. If you do not wish to permit material changes in our collection, use or sharing of PII that you have provided to us before the effective date of such changes, you must so notify us before that effective date. Please be advised, however, that, regardless of whether you provide such notice to us, the changes to this Policy will apply to any PII that you provide to us on or after the effective date of such changes.
To request information or make comment regarding our retention and disclosure of PII, please send an email to the Site administrator.
