We also may request information about your interests and activities. We may share aggregated, non-personal or personal information with third parties, including advisors, writers, researchers, and investors, in order to conduct general business analysis, participate in studies, contribute to articles, essays, or other forms of media and entertainment or for other business purposes.

We also collect information about your activities on our website such as site pages you visit, the searches you conduct on our site, operating system, access times, the links you click, duration of user visit, and geographic location, which helps us to improve the content and services we provide to our users. This information is gathered for all Polish Your Passion visitors.

We may add web beacons or other standard Internet technology to email messages to check whether emails have been opened or acted upon. This allows us to offer those on our mailing list more targeted advertisements of interest and helps us to measure the overall effectiveness of online advertising.
6. With Whom We Share Your Information
If Polish Your Passion hires other companies or third party sources to provide products or services on our behalf, then we will only provide those companies with personal information necessary for the completion of service and limit their rights of use.
Polish Your Passion does not disclose your personal information except to Polish Your Passion’s employees, independent contractors (coaches), business associates, affiliates, and other authorized service providers, acting on behalf of Polish Your Passion for any of the reasons listed in Section 2 (above). In the event that Polish Your Polish is sold, buys other businesses, or merges with another company, your personal information may be one of the transferred business assets.
7. Educational Institutions and Industry Professionals
Although we identify as an educational service, from time to time and under very special circumstances, we will provide the first point of contact between you and third party professionals. We may work with colleges, universities, scholarship providers and educational institutions ("Educational Institutions") to provide targeted recruiting and outreach to some of our members. We also may work with casting directors, agents, theatre directors, artistic directors, and other industry professionals (“Industry Professionals”) to provide some recruiting and outreach to some of our members. We do not share your personal contact information (email address, phone number, location, etc.) with these Educational Institutions and Industry Professionals without your consent, but we may send you information on their behalf. We only will share your information with those parties, so that they may contact you per your consent. If contacted by a third party, we are not responsible for their privacy policies and practices. Polish Your Passion only serves as a point of initial contact and holds no responsibility for the subsequent interactions between you and these Educational Institutions and Industry Professionals. If you decide that you no longer wish to receive communications from a third party educational institution or industry professional, then you will need to contact that third party directly.
8. Your Choices About Collection and Disclosure of Your Information
You may choose to not provide us with certain information, but please be aware that it may create limitations on Polish Your Passion’s ability to provide you with personalized products and services at the highest quality. Without certain information, it may result in you being unable to use certain features on our website because such information may be required to complete purchase forms for products and services.
When you purchase products or services, your email address may be added to our email list server for email messages and/or newsletters that update you regarding product updates, special offers and discount codes, improvements, special events, surveys, etc. At any time, you can choose to no longer receive promotional emails or newsletters from us by emailing and we will remove you from our email list.

Please note that, although you will have chosen to opt out of email communication with Polish Your Passion, we do not have the power to access information that you have provided yourself to third party sources. Refer to their individual policies to opt out of email communication with them.
