THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Account Registration and Visitor Provided Information: Some of our online and mobile activities, such as polls, sweepstakes and promotions, may ask for an e-mail address and possibly a first name so that we may respond to visitors' requests. Other activities may require account registration, which may request information such as a screen name, password, e-mail address, age, contact preferences, website interests, and other profile information. E-mail addresses collected for account registration are used to confirm the creation of an account and are stored in a protected format that doesn't identify the individual. The e-mail addresses are collected and stored to help specifically with account maintenance, such as retrieving a lost password.
Visitor Communications: Some areas of our website(s) may include community and enhanced interactive features, such as forums, blogs, and feedback, where visitors can post comments, chat, e-mail, or otherwise communicate with Boyer Animation Studios. These areas of our website(s) allow visitors to contact us or tell a friend about our website(s). These areas may request personal information about the visitor or other people, such as the e-mail address of the recipient. E-mail addresses provided to us for this purpose are used solely to respond to the visitor's request and are deleted from our system once the message is sent.
Social Media and Interactive Features: If you use social media platforms and third-party plug-ins in connection with our website(s), the third parties who provide those features may be able to collect, use and make public information about you and activity on our website(s), depending on privacy settings and in accordance with the social media platform privacy and other policies. We recommend that visitors review these third-party privacy policies for more information about their information practices.
Parents, Guardians, Adults and Teens: For certain activities, such as community features where visitors can post comments and chat with others, we may ask for the e-mail address of a parent or guardian of a child under 13 or take other actions so that we can let the parent or guardian know about the child's participation in the activity or ask for the parent or guardian's permission for the child to participate in that activity. On certain website(s) or portions of a website(s) with activities directed to an older audience, we may collect additional information from some visitors such as a full name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, or other information related to the activity such as their cable, satellite provider or other affiliation. Similarly, certain website(s) or portions of a website(s) may permit some visitors to share content via social media accounts, to interact with a social media plug-in or to log on via other third party platform accounts such as those available through Facebook. When a visitor uses such social media platforms and plug-ins, some social media account information may be shared with us, such as a user name.
Purchases and Transactions: We may offer parents and other adult visitors the opportunity to make purchases, including items such as merchandise, online comic books/graphic novels, subscriptions, or to enable participation in certain interactive features. In such cases, we may require the parent or adult to provide a full name, billing and mailing addresses, e-mail address, telephone number, and a credit card number. We sometimes may solicit additional voluntary information regarding shoppers' personal shopping preferences.
Push Notifications: Visitors may choose to receive push notifications from a mobile app. Visitors can manage their push notification preferences at any time by adjusting the settings for the app on their mobile device.
HOW WE USE INFORMATION COLLECTED ON THE SITE
In addition to providing our products (e.g., merchandise, e-books, etc.), entertainment programs, and other services, we use visitors' information to fulfill their transactions and respond to their requests for content and information, such as enabling them to enter our sweepstakes or contests, to express their opinions on various topics, to play games and communicate with their friends, and to offer other features, products, programs, and services that we believe may be of interest. We also use the information we collect to support our internal operations, including personalizing content and experiences for visitors, authenticating visitors, improving and personalizing the design and content of our website(s), analyzing website(s) usage, serving contextual advertising, and managing advertising frequency. We may use the information we collect to prevent potentially illegal or offensive activities or to enforce our rights or the rights of other visitors or third parties. User generated content or information that a user who at least 18 years old submits to us may be used on TV, online or in other media; we may use contact information submitted to send legal releases and to communicate with the user about the activity and content sent to us. We also may use the information for any other purposes disclosed to visitors at the time we collect their information and/or with appropriate consent.
HOW WE SHARE INFORMATION COLLECTED ON THE SITES
Service Providers: We sometimes use agents, contractors, or other service providers to provide services on our behalf to our visitors, such as providing visitors with items they may have purchased, redeeming products (virtual or tangible), sending merchandise that visitors have ordered, or helping us administer and fulfill prizes for a promotion, contest or sweepstakes. In these cases, we require service providers to protect the confidentiality and security of personal information. We may also use reputable third parties and service providers for activities in support of internal operations, such as to perform analytics or to serve contextual advertisements.
Co-Branded Websites and Promotions: Some of our website(s), or portions of our website(s), may be jointly provided by us and a sponsor or by one or more of our business partners who may also collect or have access to some of visitors' information. In such instances, we will provide a notice at the point where the computer information is collected or upon download of the mobile app.
External Links: Our website(s) may contain links to third-party websites, services, content, and applications whose information practices may be different from ours. Following these links may allow the user to go to or interact with third party websites, services, content, and applications that may offer content or games, or conduct contests or sweepstakes that are separate from our website(s). We are not responsible for the practices of these third parties, and we recommend that visitors review their privacy policies.
With Consent: We may disclose website(s) visitors' information for any other purposes with appropriate consent or at their direction.
De-Identified and/or Aggregate Information: We may take steps to de-identify or otherwise modify the information that we collect so that it is not intended to identify you personally. We may also aggregate information about users so that such information is not intended to specifically identify any users. We may use this de-identified and/or aggregate information to provide visitors with additional or more relevant produce or service opportunities, to improve and personalize the website(s), to perform analytics and other statistical analysis and for marketing purposes. We may share this de-identified and/or aggregate information with any third parties without restriction.

This is to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings when projects independently developed by Boyer Creative Enterprises LLC or its agents might seem to others to be similar to their own creative ideas, suggestions or materials. Any such unsolicited submissions are either discarded or deleted or returned to the sender, in our discretion, without being reviewed (or reviewed solely to the extent necessary to determine that the materials are an unsolicited submission or infringement of Boyer Creative Enterprises LLC intellectual property).
