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.

 

5. Other Tracking Technologies

 

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.

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.

Polish Your Passion will take commercially appropriate security measures to help protect our clients’ personal information from unauthorized access. For example, we will change our passwords to accounts frequently and limit access to authorized employees only for permitted business tasks. Unfortunately, no system can guarantee that your personal information, searches, or other interactions and communications remain completely secure. Users should be careful with how they disclose their personal information and refer to the Federal Trade Commission’s website for information about how to protect yourself against identity theft: http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/menus/consumer/data.shtm.
