What Information Do We Collect?

When you visit our website you may knowingly choose to provide us with personal information about yourself. In addition to this individual information that you may provide to us voluntarily, we collect aggregate data on how you, and all our other visitors, make use of this site.

Personal Information You Choose to Provide

We will not sell, trade, or in any other manner intentionally distribute, disseminate, or disclose any personal identification information about you (such as, for example, your full name, email address, etc.) as an individual user of this website to any companies, organizations, individuals, or any other third party without having first received your permission.

We may request personal identification information from you in connection with your use of, or participation in, surveys, email correspondence, discussion boards, or participant registrations enabling participants to participate in online Videohall website events. However, we will only collect this personal information from you if you have voluntarily submitted it to us.

Any personal information provided to us may be used in connection with the activities previously referred to above. Should you contact us with questions or comments, we may use your personal information in order to respond to your questions or comments. We may also keep your comments or questions for future reference.

It is important to note that if you give out personal information online, through a discussion post or comment, for example, that information may be collected and used by third parties. We cannot guarantee the security of information you post in these arenas. You disclose such information at your own risk. You should also be aware that email communications are not necessarily secure against interception.
