Starz Media may collect personally identifiable information that you voluntarily submit in various contexts including, but not limited to: (1) the registration process for sweepstakes, contests, and other promotions offered via the Site; (2) your participation in online research surveys offered on the Site; (3) the process of reporting a problem with our Site and resolving customer service activities (including via email and chat); and (4) in connection with content submissions, voting and polling activities. Such personally identifiable information may include, without limitation, name, date of birth, e-mail address, mailing address and telephone number.
b. Non-personally Identifiable Information.
(i) Usage Information. When you visit the Site, Starz Media may also collect non-personally identifiable information. Starz Media may automatically collect information that describes how you use the Site and the technology you are using to access the services, Site and features (“Usage Information”). Additionally, we may collect your IP address or device identifier (“Device ID”). A Device ID is a unique number assigned to the device(s) or network you use to access the services, Site and features. If we associate Usage Information with your Device ID we will treat such information as personally identifiable information.
(ii) Cookies. Cookies are small information files that our Site may place on your device. Cookies by themselves do not provide Starz Media with personally identifiable information. However, once you choose to furnish us with personally identifiable information, this information may be linked to the data stored in a cookie. In many instances you can turn off cookies in your web browser (see your browser’s manual or help file for instructions), but if you do turn off cookies you may not be able to access parts of the Site where cookies are used.
(iii) Embedded Scripts/Web Beacons. An embedded script is programming code used to collect information about how you interact with the Site. The embedded script is temporarily downloaded onto your device from a Starz Media or third party web server and is active only while you are connected to the Site. A web beacon is a small graphic image or programming code that may be included in our web pages and e-mail messages.
2. HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT.

Additionally, we use personally identifiable information to, among other things: (1) improve the Site by providing personalized content, language and location customization and/or personalized help and instructions; (2) provide customer service assistance; (3) ask you to participate in surveys about products, services, news and events; (4) provide you with news, newsletters, updates, targeted advertising, promotions, sweepstakes and special offers; (5) better understand how the Site is used, including traffic patterns and what types of content are most popular with users; (6) in connection with content submissions, community postings (e.g., chat and bulletin boards), and voting and polling activities.
b. Non-personally Identifiable Information. We use Device IDs, Usage Information, cookies and web beacons for a variety of internal purposes, such as system administration and counting visitors, tracking views, email “opens” and monitoring how users navigate the services, Site and features.
3. HOW TO UPDATE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION. We will use reasonable efforts to allow you to update or correct personally identifiable information, to the extent that changing the data will not compromise privacy or security interests. Also, upon your request, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally delete your personally identifiable information from our database. However, it may be impossible to delete all of your information without some residual data because of backups and records of deletions. Finally, you may request that your information be changed, corrected or deleted from our databases by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
5. POLICIES FOR INDIVIDUALS UNDER THE AGE OF 13. Starz Media does not knowingly collect or use any personally identifiable information submitted to the Sites from individuals under the age of 13, except in order to respond on a one-time basis to a specific request for information. If you are a parent or guardian who has discovered that your child under the age of 13 has submitted his or her personally identifiable information without your permission or consent, you can ask us to remove your child’s information by contacting us at email@example.com. Upon notice from you, Starz Media will make reasonable efforts to investigate and remove the information. Please include in your message the same user name and/or e-mail address and password that your child submitted.
7. STARZ MEDIA SECURITY POLICY. Starz Media is aware of your privacy concerns and strives to collect only as much data as is required to make your use of the Site as efficient and satisfying as possible, in the most unobtrusive manner as possible. We will make reasonable efforts to ensure that whatever information you provide will be maintained in a secure environment. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us or from our sites or services, and you provide such information at your own risk.
