Acceptance of These Terms
What information, including personally identifiable information, does Fathom collect from and about you?
In order to provide you with our services, there are two methods whereby we collect information from you: passive collection of technical information and information you voluntarily provide to Fathom, including personally identifiable information.
Passive Collection of Technical Information.
Fathom automatically collects certain technical information from each visitor, including your IP address, the type of browser you use to surf the Internet, your computer's operating system, and the web site from which you accessed the Site. Your IP address tells us both your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and the general geographic location from which you are connecting. We may also use your IP address to track how long you stayed on the Site and what pages you visited. This information is used internally by Fathom to help us provide a good web experience to Delgo fans, including providing proper formatting for our web pages and analyzing which aspects of the site are most effective, as well as optimizing the marketing of Delgo.
Information You Provide.
At delgo.com, we do not collect personally identifiable information on our Site unless our visitors voluntarily provide it to us. For some activities, such as online polls or surveys, we may ask visitors to provide information that is not personally identifiable. This might include first name only, city or state of residence, age, gender, or a favorite character. For some other activities, such as entering sweepstakes and contests, we may ask visitors to provide a first name and e-mail address.
When a child under age thirteen participates in an ongoing activity that requires the collection, retention, and use of personal information, we will also ask for a parent's e-mail address so that we can notify the parent that we have received personal information from their child. We do not knowingly collect names and e-mail addresses from children under age thirteen for these types of activities without notifying the parent via e-mail and giving the parent the option to remove their child's e-mail address from the applicable database for that activity. For specific one-time requests we receive from visitors, e-mail addresses are collected and used only in connection with the specific one-time request. For example, for sweepstakes and contests, e-mail addresses are collected for the purpose of entering the online sweepstakes or contest on a one-time basis and are used to notify winners of the sweepstakes or contest once by e-mail. Winners will be required to return a completed prize acceptance form contained in the notification e-mail by facsimile or U.S. mail within a designated time period (along with the signature of a parent or legal guardian for all minors).
Fathom's use and disclosure of the information you provide us, including personally identifiable information is set forth below.
What other organizations besides Fathom may be collecting information from you on the Site?
How will Fathom and its marketing partners use my information?
We use visitors' personal information collected in connection with child-directed activities for internal purposes only, such as enabling visitors to enter our online contests or sweepstakes or to subscribe to an online newsletter.
We do not keep any personal information we obtain through a contest or sweepstakes until we have successfully selected a winner(s), awarded the prize(s), and administered the contest or sweepstakes. We only use the e-mail addresses of subscribers to our Sites' e-mail newsletters to send them the requested newsletter(s). Each newsletter also includes instructions for subscription removal via return e-mail.
We never sell, rent, or otherwise share our visitors' personal information with third parties without appropriate consent. Sometimes, we use agents or contractors to provide services to our visitors, such as helping us conduct a sweepstakes, sending prizes to winners, shipping customer orders made on the Sites, or providing customer service related to activities on the Sites. In these cases, we require the agent or contractor to keep the information confidential and to use it only for the specific services they are performing. We sometimes use non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our Sites, and to improve our visitors' experience on the Sites. We also may aggregate this information to analyze Site usage, as well as to offer products, programs, or services.
We will not use or transfer personally identifiable information in ways that are materially different from the ones described above without also providing parental notification of such practices and obtaining consent for any materially different uses.
What kinds of security procedures are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under Fathom's control?
Fathom uses industry standard security measures to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Nonetheless, due to the inherent dangers of the Internet, we cannot guarantee the protection of such information against loss, misuse, or alteration.
