PRIVACY POLICY

www.buzzrplay.com (the “Site”), the official website for BUZZR LET’S PLAY™, is provided by FremantleMedia North America, Inc. (“FMNA”, “us”, “we” or “our”).  This Privacy Policy describes the type of information we may collect from you, how we may use such information, who we may share it with, and how you can correct or change such information.
 
If you have any requests concerning your personal information or any queries with regard to these practices please contact the FMNA Privacy Officer by e-mail at: privacy.officer@fremantlemedia.com.
 
PLEASE REVIEW THIS PRIVACY POLICY AND THE TERMS OF USE FOR THE SITE CAREFULLY.  YOUR USE OF THE SITE SIGNIFIES THAT YOU CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION, USE AND STORAGE OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA, IP ADDRESS, AND AGGREGATE AND ANONYMOUS DATA IN THE UNITED STATES IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PRIVACY POLICY, AND THAT YOU AGREE TO THE TERMS OF USE.

The terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy shall apply to data collection via the Site itself, and any other distribution platform where Site content may be accessible, including, without limitation, mobile applications.

1. Personal Information
We may collect personal information, including without limitation your name, email address, zip code, and age (collectively, “Personal Information”) from you when you: (i) register or log on to the Site; (ii) submit questions or material to the Site; (iii) download, purchase or otherwise obtain products(s)/material(s) from the Site; (iv) e-mail us; or (v) enter contests or sweepstakes offered on the Site.


FMNA may use such Personal Information collected through this Site for the purposes of:
• providing a personalised service
• conducting market research surveys
• fulfilling product orders
• running features that incorporate submissions to the Site
• running sweepstakes and contests and
• providing you with information about, and access to, products and services FMNA offers, either by itself or jointly with or on behalf of other organisations.

If you wish to receive information about our products or services, or the products or services offered jointly with or on behalf of other organisations, please check the appropriate box on the registration page, sweepstakes/contests page or other relevant form or page through which the information is collected. You may also opt in to receive occasional communications from selected third party sponsor and partners. If you do not wish to receive such communications, you should not opt-in.

FMNA will not sell any information collected through this Site to others except as disclosed in this Privacy Policy.

2. Information Collected by Technology
Apart from information you actively provide us, we may also collect information through various technological means, such as IP Addresses and/or Cookies. An “IP Address” is associated with the access point through which you enter the Internet, and is typically controlled by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), your company, or your university. A “Cookie”, often also known as a “web beacon”, is a piece of information that a Web site sends to your computer while you are viewing the Web site or small pieces of data that are embedded in images on the pages of Web sites.

Standing alone, IP Addresses Cookies can’t be used to personally identify you, but we may combine them with personally identifiable information in order to create a more enjoyable, personalized experience for you.

We often aggregate data about you through IP Addresses and/or Cookies, such as demographic information and browsing patterns. Such information does not identify any individual and will not be linked any Personal Information. We use such information to:
• build up marketing profiles
• aid strategic development
• manage our relationship with advertisers and
• audit usage of the Site.

FMNA may take your personally identifiable information and make it non-personally identifiable, either by combining it with information about other individuals (aggregating your information with information about other individuals), or by removing characteristics (such as your name) that make the information personally identifiable to you (de-personalizing your information). Given the nature of this information, there are no restrictions under this Privacy Policy upon the right of FMNA to aggregate or de-personalize your personal information, and FMNA may use and/or share with third parties the resulting non-personally identifiable information in any way.

3. Submissions
Any Personal Information you choose to provide to FMNA with your submissions posted to this Site may appear on the Site, but only to identify you as the author of the submission, unless you expressly authorise us to make further use of the information on the Site. If you voluntarily disclose Personal Information on any bulletin boards or in chat areas that may be part of this Site, that information can also be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other people.

WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE YOU NOT TO DISCLOSE ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOURSELF IN ANY SUBMISSIONS TO THE SITE.

Please review the Terms of Use to learn more about our policies regarding user submissions.

4. Disclosure of Your Data:
Disclosure to FMNA Affiliates: Personally identifiable information collected under this Privacy Policy is shared among and used by FMNA for many purposes. For example, FMNA may use your personal information to send you promotional materials about goods and services (including special offers and promotions) either offered by FMNA or by any affiliated, parent or subsidiary companies. These promotional materials may be sent to you by postal mail, e-mail or other means. You may opt out of receiving these communications as provided in Paragraph 5 below.

FMNA may also use your personal information for many purposes other than sending you promotional materials. (We refer to all of these types of uses of your personal information that do not involve the sending of promotional materials as "Operational Uses.") For example, we may use your information to complete transactions requested by you (such as your purchase of a product or service offered on our Web sites), or to send you administrative communications either about your account with us or about features of our Web sites, including any future changes to this Privacy Policy. Unless specifically requested, this information is not subject to opt-outs.

Disclosure to Licensees: In addition to using your personal information within the FMNA family, we may share your personal information with companies that offer products and/or services under brand names or other intellectual property of FMNA or its affiliates. FMNA may also share your personal information with companies that offer products and/or services that are co-branded using brand names FMNA may own or control, or with sponsors of programs or brands FMNA may own, produce or control. When FMNA shares personal information with third parties acting as licensees and co-branding participants, these licensees and co-branding participants are restricted by contract from using the personal information for any marketing or promotional purpose that is not related to a licensed or co-branded product or service. Finally, to further protect your privacy, these licensees and co-branding participants' use of personal information shared with them under this Privacy Policy is subject to the same opt-out rights (and limitations upon those rights) that apply to use of personal information by members of FMNA under.

Disclosures to Third Parties: Like many businesses, FMNA may occasionally hire third parties to perform certain business-related functions on our behalf such as hosting specific portions of the Site, maintaining databases, delivering content, sending marketing emails, administering contests, mailing information, processing payments, or otherwise operating the Site (singularly “Third Party” or collectively, “Third Parties”). When we employ a Third Party to perform these functions, that Third Party will only be provided with the particular Personal Information, cookies and/or IP addresses it needs to perform their function, and is required to protect such Personal Information, cookies and/or IP addresses. With your consent, we may also share Personal Information with pre-screened third parties for marketing or promotional purposes. You may opt-out of any of these services or opportunities at any time, as set out in Paragraph 5 below.

In the event you have elected to “unsubscribe” from any of our services, we will share your Personal Information with third parties with who we jointly offer such services solely to the extent necessary to ensure that your request not to receive such communications is honored. In addition, for third-party sponsored sweepstakes, contests or promotions, FMNA may request Personal Information from you that may be shared with such sponsor(s) upon their request, but we will give you the option to either agree to this use of your Personal Information or cancel your participation in the applicable sweepstakes, contest, or promotion at the time we request such Personal Information. Nonetheless, except as separately permitted by other provisions of this Privacy Policy, these companies are allowed to gather, receive, and use your information only for the purposes described in this paragraph or to facilitate compliance with laws.

At times, when you participate in events on our site that are sponsored or affiliated/associated with a third party, you may be required or requested to agree that the sponsor or business associate may use your personal information (including, in some cases, your e-mail address) in accordance with the sponsor or business associate's privacy practices. If you do consent to the terms of their privacy policy, it will govern their uses of Personal Information.

Disclosure to Others: In addition, FMNA may disclose Personal Information and IP addresses without providing you with a choice under the following limited circumstances to: (1) protect the legal rights, privacy or safety of FMNA, or their subsidiaries, affiliates or their employees, agents and contractors; (2) protect the safety and security of visitors to the Site or other properties; (3) protect against fraud or other illegal activity or for risk management purposes; (4) respond to inquiries or requests from public authorities; (5) permit FMNA to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that FMNA may sustain; (6) enforce our Terms of Use; or (7) comply with the law or legal process.

If FMNA sells all or part of the Site or makes a sale or transfer of assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, FMNA may, in its sole discretion, transfer, sell or assign your Personal Information and/or IP address information to a third party as part of or in connection with that transaction. Upon such transfer, the Privacy Policy of the acquiring entity may govern the further use of your Personal Information and/or, IP address information.

5. Opting Out
If you have previously opted in to receive newsletters, promotional messaging or other information FMNA may send, you may unsubscribe at any time by emailing FMNA at:
privacy.officer@fremantlemedia.com.

If you have opted in to receive information or news from third party or licensee mailing lists, you must follow any instructions detailed by such third parties or licensees in their email correspondence to you.

If you ask that we stop using your Personal Information, we will honor that request. However, as stated above, you may not be able to continue using certain features of the Site that require Personal Information, and we will retain records of your Personal Information as needed in order to comply with applicable federal, state, or local law.

6. Third-Party Advertising and Partnerships with Other Sites:
The Site may include third-party advertising. These third parties' online services, websites and advertisers, or the Internet advertising companies that work on their behalf, may use technology to send (or "serve") the advertisements that appear on the Site directly to your computer. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use certain technologies to deliver advertisements, collect information about the effectiveness of their advertisements, and to collect anonymous information about your visits to the Site, such as the number of times you have viewed an ad (but not your name, address, or other Personal Information). For more information about these specialized technologies, and how to "opt out" of information collection by these companies, we suggest you visit the privacy policies and terms of use/service for these companies.

Please note that the Site may provide access to other partner experiences that will not follow the same Privacy Policy as the Site. For instance, selecting an interface or other elements on the Site may take you to an entirely different online service controlled and operated by another company. These other services may use our logos or sub-brands as a result of a co-branding agreement; however, these services may use their own methods of collecting data, including Personal Information, and may make use of that data in ways that the Site would not. This Privacy Policy will not apply to Personal Information or any other data collected from or provided by you in connection with such partner experiences or partner services. You should check the partner's applicable privacy policy to determine how that partner will handle such data.

7. Your Choices:
You can use the certain features of the Site without providing any Personal Information, but if you decline to provide Personal Information, you may not be able to use certain services or features.

8. Data Security Disclaimer
We take reasonable security precautions to secure the Personal Information that you choose to provide against the loss, misuse, alteration or unauthorized access of such information. Unfortunately, no transmission of data over the Internet can ever be guaranteed to be completely secure. It may be possible for third parties not under our control to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully. While we strive to protect your Personal Information, FMNA cannot ensure or warrant the security of any Personal Information you transmit to us. Any such transmission is done at your own risk. If you believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please notify us of the problem by emailing privacy.officer@fremantlemedia.com.

9. Exclusions
This Privacy Policy shall not apply to any unsolicited information you provide to us on or through the Site ("Unsolicited Submissions"). Please see our Terms of Use for our policies regarding such Unsolicited Submissions. All such Unsolicited Submissions shall be deemed to be non-confidential, and we shall be free to reproduce, use, disclose and distribute such Unsolicited Submissions to others without limitation or attribution.

10. Updating Personal Information
If you would like to change any contact or billing information, or if you no longer desire to receive any marketing communications from us or our partners, please email us at
privacy.officer@fremantlemedia.com.

11. Changes in Privacy Policy
We may amend this Privacy Policy at any time. If we amend this Privacy Policy to permit material changes in the way we collect, use, and/or share your personal information, we will notify you of such amendment by sending you an e-mail at the last e-mail address that you provided us, and/or by prominently posting notice of such amendment on the Web sites covered by this Privacy Policy. Any such amendment to this Privacy Policy will be effective thirty (30) calendar days following either our dispatch of an e-mail notice to you or our posting of notice of the changes on the Web sites covered by this Privacy Policy. Please note that, at all times, you are responsible for updating your personal information to provide us your current e-mail address. In the event that the last e-mail address that you have provided us is not valid, or for any other reason is not capable of delivering to you the notice described above, our dispatch of the e-mail containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice of the amendment described in the notice. In any event, an amendment to this Privacy Policy may permit material changes in the way we use and share personal information that you provided us prior to our notification to you of such amendment. If you do not wish to allow such material changes, you must so notify us (in the manner we specify) prior to the effective date of the amendment. If you provide us this notice, we may choose to deactivate your account. Please be advised, however, that, regardless of whether you provide such notice to us, any such amendment to this Privacy Policy will apply to any personal information that you provide us on or after the effective date of such amendment.

12. Mediation
You also agree that, in the event any dispute or claim arises out of or relating to your use of the Site or this Privacy Policy that you and FremantleMedia will attempt in good faith to negotiate a written resolution of the matter directly between the parties. You agree that if the matter remains unresolved for forty-five (45) days after notification (via certified mail or personal delivery) that a dispute exists, all parties shall join in mediation services in Los Angeles, California with a mutually agreed mediator in an attempt to resolve the dispute. Should you file any arbitration claims, or any administrative or legal actions without first having attempted to resolve the matter by mediation, then you agree that you will not be entitled to recover attorneys’ fees, even if you would otherwise be entitled to them.
