1. Types of User Data We Collect
We collect two types of user data: (1) anonymous data that is automatically collected from all visitors to the Site (described below under "Anonymous Data"); and (2) personally-identifiable data that you voluntarily submit to us (described below under "Personal Data").
Anonymous Data. We automatically collect Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and domain names through our server. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our Site, analyze trends, gather broad demographic information for use in order for us to improve the Site, and deliver customized, personalized content. We also track the number and frequency of hits per page on an aggregate basis, as well as other anonymous traffic data.
Personal Data. We may collect Personal Data that you voluntarily provide, such as your name, e-mail address, and similar information, when you participate in certain activities on the Site, including when you:
We do not at any time request or store any other sensitive information from our visitors, such as credit card or social security numbers, and this information should not be voluntarily provided to Review Broadway or posted in public areas of the Site for any reason. Certain sensitive information, such as telephone numbers and real names, can be added to your Personal Data, with the option to hide it from regular Members and viewers of the site; however, this Personal Data will be viewable by members of the Review Broadway editorial or administrative staff.
We do not knowingly collect any information from children under the age of 13.
3. How We Use Anonymous Data
Review Broadway uses Anonymous Data to identify the source of user traffic (for example, country of origin), but we are not able to use this data to identify individual users. We use data on which sections of the Site are most visited to evaluate the popularity of our different Web pages and to improve the Site. Review Broadway does not publicly link Anonymous Data with the Personal Data you provide to us. In addition to your name and e-mail address that you provide when you choose to comment on reviews, the software powering the comments on our Site automatically records the IP address associated with your comments. Members will have Anonymous Data recorded privately within their account information, for the purposes of safety, security, and site administration; these Anonymous Data are never publicly displayed.
4. How We Use Personal Data
Review Broadway uses the Personal Data you provide:
The Site is hosted by servers located in the United States. Accordingly, if you are located outside of the United States, the Personal Data you provide to us will be transferred to the United States. By submitting your Personal Data, you consent to its transfer and storage in the United States and its use in accordance with the purposes for which it was originally collected.
5. Sharing With Third Parties
We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Site. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, please visit the advertiser websites.
Where possible, the Review Broadway may attempt to opt out of the collection of information on our Site for the purposes of interest-based advertising. However, even if we are able to so opt out, you may still experience interest-based advertising on our Site based on your interactions with advertisers outside of our Site, such as visits to an advertiser's website or another website on which the advertiser serves ads.
6. Posting Of Your Information On Our Site
We will not post or otherwise share your full name, e-mail address or other Personal Data on our Site unless you expressly transmit your permission, or choose to let us do so by checking the "make public" boxes when you provide us with your Personal Data. Please note, however, that even if you do not check "make public" boxes, we may still post a provided username on our Site along with the contents of your contributions. If you do opt-in to allowing us to use your Personal Data, we may post it on our Site.
Regardless of whether or not you have opted in to allowing us to share your Personal Data, if you provide us with Personal Data on the Site within the content of a comment on one of our reviews, your personal information will be automatically posted in such a way as to be viewable to all visitors to the Site. Review Broadway cannot be held liable for the collection, use, or dissemination of your Personal Data by third parties who access your Personal Data in this way.
7. Other Web Sites
Our Site contains links to other Web sites. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are entering another Web site for which the Review Broadway has no responsibility. We encourage you to read the privacy statements on all such sites as their policies may differ from ours.
8. Data Storage and Security
Some Personal Data we collect about you is stored on your own computer via cookies. Personal Data is also stored on our servers. When you transmit Personal Data to Review Broadway, please keep in mind that no transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
