Policy Created: June 5, 2006
Last Updated: June 10, 2006
WE WILL NOT SELL OR RENT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO ANYONE.
In the course of operating the TADFF Services, we may collect two types of information about our users: Personal Information and Non-Personal Information.
"Personal Information" is personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, email address, birth date and gender. Personal Information is collected by us when you choose to provide it to us when registering for a TADFF Service, such as when you choose to subscribe to a TADFF Service, enter a TADFF promotion or choose to receive a TADFF newsletter. In addition, if you choose to contact any of our festival representatives, we may keep a record of that correspondence so that we may fully address the subject matter. We may also receive Personal Information from our business partners and other third parties.
Business contact information such as the name, title, business address, email address or telephone number of a business or professional person or an employee of an organization is not considered Personal Information.
"Non-Personal Information" is information of an anonymous nature, such as your Internet Protocol Address (IP Address), the domain you may have used to access a TADFF Service, the type and version of browser or operating system you may be using, and the website you may have come from and visit next. Aggregate information, such as demographic statistics of our users (e.g. average age or geographical allocation of our users), number of visitors and average time spent on a TADFF Service, is also considered Non-Personal Information.
Non-Personal Information is collected or derived by us in the course of operating the TADFF Services. For example, our Web servers may automatically collect Non-Personal Information which is provided through your browser or stored on a Cookie or through a Web Beacon when you choose to visit a TADFF Service. Non-Personal Information is used by TADFF as described here.
Personal Information may be used by us for the following purposes:
We will not sell or rent your Personal Information to anyone.
We will only disclose your Personal Information to third parties:
The majority of the advertisements which are displayed in connection with the TADFF Services are served through reputable third party advertisement serving partner(s).
The security of your Personal Information is important to us.
You can help protect the security of your Personal Information as well. For instance, never give out your password, since this is what is used to access your Account or Registration Information. Also remember to log out of your account and close your browser window when you finish using a TADFF Service or surfing the Web, so that other people using the same computer won't have access to your information.
Additional privacy procedures specific to a TADFF Service may be found on a TADFF Site at the location of the particular TADFF Service, or in additional terms referenced at such TADFF Site or in a e-mail or electronic newsletter link. Those procedures are an addendum to this policy, and are provided to you at the place where they will be of most use to you.
If you decide at any time that you do not want to receive any e-mail materials to which you have subscribed, you may choose to unsubscribe to these e-mails by following the instructions at the end of the message, or by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have received unwanted, unsolicited email sent from TADFF or purporting to be sent from TADFF, please forward a copy of that email with your comments to email@example.com for review.
Non-Personal Information is collected or derived by us in the course of operating the TADFF Services. For example, our Web servers may automatically collect Non-Personal Information which is provided through your browser or stored on a Cookie or through a Web Beacon when you choose to visit a TADFF Service.
In addition to TADFF's practices related to IP Addresses, Cookies or Web Beacons, Non-Personal Information is used generally by TADFF to monitor and improve the operation of the TADFF Services, to perform statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of our users, to measure user demographics and interests regarding specific TADFF Services, to describe our services to third parties such as prospective business partners and advertisers and to analyze how and where best to use our resources. No Personal Information will be disclosed during these activities.
TADFF may also use Non-Personal Information to inform our sponsors and advertisers as to the performance of a particular sponsorship (such as a contest) or advertisement. In such case we may disclose to those third-party sponsors and advertisers the overall aggregate demographics available regarding, for example who participated in a contest or who saw and "clicked" on an advertisement. No Personal Information will be disclosed to these sponsors and advertisers as part of this process; only information in an anonymous, aggregate form will be disclosed.

An IP Address is the unique number which is assigned to every direct Internet access point. Many IP Addresses can generally be associated with certain Internet service providers or large organizations. IP Addresses do not contain any Personal Information. When you, through your browser, request a web page or similar Internet information from another computer on the Internet, your browser automatically provides that computer with an IP address to which it will send the requested information.
TADFF and IP Addresses:
A cookie is a small text file containing a unique identification number that is transferred (through your browser) from a web site to the hard drive of your computer. The cookie identifies your browser and will NOT let a web site know any personal information about you, such as your name and address. Since cookies are only text files, they cannot run on your computer, search your computer for other information or transmit any information to anyone.
Certain TADFF Services may contain electronic images known as Web beacons - sometimes called single-pixel gifs - that allow TADFF to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. Web beacons are not used to access your Personal Information; they are a technique used to compile aggregated statistics about TADFF Service usage. Web beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the Web beacon resides. Certain TADFF Service web pages may also contain Web beacons placed there by our advertising partners to help TADFF determine the effectiveness of our Internet advertising campaigns.
