Collection of Information
vtheshow.com collects information from individuals by various methods, including, but not limited to, when an individual voluntarily completes a vtheshow.com survey, order form, or a registration page either online or offline, or by means of online or offline surveys, order forms, or registration pages operated by third parties (collectively, a "Survey"). (As used herein, "online" means using the Internet, including the Website, and related technologies, and "offline" means by methods other than online, including in person, in the postal mail, using telephones and cell phones, and other similar means.) In the Surveys, vtheshow.com or a third party (a "Third Party") may ask an individual to provide various information to vtheshow.com, which may include his or her name, email address, street address, zip code, telephone numbers (including cell phone numbers and carriers), SMS messaging details (e.g. date, time and content of the SMS message), birth date, gender, salary range, education and marital status, occupation, social security number, employment information, personal and online interests, and such other information as may be requested from time to time (together, "Survey Information"). vtheshow.com may also collect information concerning an individual from another source and use that information in combination with information provided from this Web Site. Completing the Surveys is completely voluntary, and individuals are under no obligation to provide Survey Information to vtheshow.com or Third Party, but an individual may receive incentives from vtheshow.com or a Third Party in exchange for providing Survey Information to vtheshow.com.
Third-Party List Information
vtheshow.com collects information from individuals when an individual provides information to a Third Party and vtheshow.com subsequently purchases, licenses, or otherwise acquires the information from the Third Party (the "Seller"). Such purchased information may include, but is not limited to, an individual's name, email address, street address, zip code, telephone numbers (including cell phone numbers and carriers), SMS messaging details (e.g. date, time and content of the SMS message), birth date, gender, salary range, education and marital status, occupation, industry of employment, personal and online interests, and such other information as the individual may have provided to the Seller (together, "Third-Party List Information"). When acquiring Third-Party List Information, vtheshow.com seeks assurances from the Seller that the Seller has a right to transfer the Third-Party List Information to vtheshow.com and that the Seller has a right to provide offers from advertisers to the individuals whose personal information is included on the Seller's list.
Other occasions when vtheshow.com obtains information from individuals include (1) when an individual is making a claim for a prize or seeking to redeem an incentive offered by vtheshow.com or by a Third Party, (2) when an individual requests assistance through vtheshow.com customer service department, and (3) when an individual voluntarily subscribes to a vtheshow.com service or newsletter (together, "Other Information").
Cookies, Web Beacons, and Other Info Collected Using Technology
vtheshow.com currently uses cookie and web beacon technology to associate certain Internet-related information about an individual with information about the individual in our database. Additionally, vtheshow.com may use other new and evolving sources of information in the future (together, "Technology Information").
- Cookies. A cookie is a small amount of data stored on the hard drive of the individual's computer that allows vtheshow.com to identify the individual with his or her corresponding data that resides in vtheshow.com database. You may read more about cookies at cookiecentral.com. Individuals who use the Website need to accept cookies in order to use all of the features and functionality of the Website.
- Web Beacons. A web beacon is programming code that can be used to display an image on a web page (by using an <img src="x"> programming function - see http://truste.org for more information), but can also be used to transfer an individual's unique user identification (often in the form of a cookie) to a database and associate the individual with previously acquired information about an individual in a database. This allows vtheshow.com to track certain websites an individual visits online. Web beacons are used to determine products or services an individual may be interested in, and to track online behavioral habits for marketing purposes. For example, vtheshow.com might place, with the consent of a Third-Party website, a web beacon on the Third-Party's website where show tickets are sold. When Nate, an individual listed in vtheshow.com database, visits the fishing website, vtheshow.com receives notice by means of the web beacon that Nate visited the show ticket site, and vtheshow.com would then update Nate's profile with the information that Nate is interested in show tickets. vtheshow.com may thereafter present offers of shows related products and services to Nate. In addition to using web beacons on web pages, vtheshow.com also uses web beacons in email messages sent to individuals listed in vtheshow.com database.
- New Technology. The use of technology on the Internet, including cookies and web beacons, is rapidly evolving, as is vtheshow.com use of new and evolving technology. As a result, vtheshow.com strongly encourages individuals to revisit this policy for any updates regarding its use of technology.
