Information PPC Collects
Generally, you may browse this Web Site without providing any personal information about yourself, which is information that could reasonably be used to identify you personally (such as your name, address, birth date or email address), which we refer to as "PII." However, we may ask you to provide us with certain PII when you register with us or at other times, such as if you choose to participate in or receive information about games, contests, sweepstakes, surveys and/or promotional events. We may also ask you to provide us with demographic information or information regarding your interests, hobbies or similar information. Providing us with information about yourself is completely voluntary, and you can always choose not to provide certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of or participate in many of the Web Site's features. In addition, you may have the opportunity to provide us with the PII, such as name or e-mail address, of someone else, such as if you chose to e-mail a friend an article, electronic greeting card or other special feature from our Web Site.
We may combine the information about you that we collect at this Web Site with information available to us from other sources. For example, you may provide PII to us at other PPC web sites, or our co-promoters or sponsors may provide us with information, including PII, about users that choose to participate in a promotional opportunity the co-promoter or sponsor is offering in connection with PPC.
In addition, when you visit this Web Site, our web servers automatically collect web site usage information. Web site usage information is anonymous, aggregate information that describes how our visitors use and navigate our Web Site, and it includes the number and frequency of visitors to each web page and the length of their stays. We also collect the anonymous information automatically sent to us by your web browser, such as browser type, referrer data that identifies the web page visited prior and subsequent to visiting our Web Site, and IP addresses (see below for more information on IP addresses). We also may determine the technology available through your browser in order to serve you the most appropriate version of a web page.
PPC Does Not Knowingly Collect Information From Children Under Thirteen (13) Years Of Age.
This is not a web site directed to children under the age of 13, and PPC does not knowingly collect any PII from children under thirteen (13) years of age. If you are under thirteen (13) years of age, do not send any information about yourself to PPC. If PPC discovers that a child under the age of 13 has provided PPC with PII, PPC will delete that child's PII from its system.
PPC encourages parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to supervise their children's activities on the World Wide Web. PPC suggests that parents consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that may help ensure a child friendly online environment and help direct their children to suitable, child-oriented web sites.
Use Of IP Addresses
An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer or network when you are on the Internet. When you request pages from this Web Site, our servers log your IP address. PPC may use IP addresses for a number of purposes, such as system administration, to report aggregate information to our business partners or to audit the use of the Web Site.
Like most web sites, this Web Site sometimes makes use of browser "cookies." Cookies are pieces of information that a web site either transfers to your computer's hard drive or stores temporarily in your computer's memory for record-keeping purposes. PPC does not save PII in cookies.
Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you decline to accept PPC cookies, you may not be able to take advantage of or participate in certain features of this Web Site.
PPC's Use and Disclosure of Collected Information
If you e-mail someone else an article, electronic greeting card or other special feature from our Web Site, we will use the information you provide about someone else to send that person the requested e-mail. The e-mail addresses you supply us for those activities will not be used to send you or your friend any other e-mail communications unless otherwise disclosed at the time you provide such information.
PPC may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on its behalf. Examples include, without limitation, hosting this Web Site, sending communications on our behalf, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, creating, hosting and/or running contests/sweepstakes/games and providing customer service. These third parties may have access to this Web Site's user information, including PII, but only to the extent it is needed to perform their duties and functions.
PPC may disclose information about its users, including PII, when legally required to do so, at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation, or to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing our Web Site and applicable laws. PPC may also disclose such user information whenever we believe disclosure is necessary to limit our legal liability or to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interfering with our rights or property or the rights or property of anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. In addition, PPC may disclose user information, including PII, in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, the sale of substantially all of its assets, or other fundamental corporate change.
PPC may disclose anonymous, aggregated user statistics for a variety of purposes, including describing PPC's services to prospective partners and other third parties.
If you request or agree to receive information from PPC, such as if you sign up to receive a film newsletter or to receive information about Paramount movies, and except as specifically disclosed on the registration form or otherwise on the web site, you may let us know that you no longer wish to receive such information by clicking HERE. Please be aware that we will process your request as quickly as we reasonably can, but it may not be possible to update our systems immediately.

PPC strives to ensure the security of your PII on PPC's systems, including limiting access to the PII contained on our servers. If credit card information is transmitted, PPC will use industry standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. PPC cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to PPC and you do so at your own risk.
