Company collects two basic types of information through the Sites, personal data and anonymous data. The term “personal data” refers to personally identifiable information about you, such as your name, birth date, credit card number, e-mail address or mailing address, and any other information that is identified with you personally, including your individual health information. The term “anonymous data” refers to data that does not reveal your specific identity, such as geographical location, demographic data or other statistical information.
Notification of Changes to This Policy.

Because of these ongoing changes, changes in the law and the changing nature of technology, Company’s data practices will change from time to time. If and when our data practices change, Company will post the changes on Company’s websites to notify you of the changes and if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice.

Personal Data Collected
Other than cookies, as described below, the only personal data Company currently collects through the Sites is the information you voluntarily give us when you use the Sites.
For example, you may use the Sites to contact Company with questions and comments. When you fill out a form on the Sites, which may include questionnaires in connection with registering your name for possible receipt of free tickets to the Googamooga, you may provide your name and other contact information, including your company’s name, your e-mail address, and your mailing address or the mailing address of your company or other personal information. If you do not wish to fill out all of the information on the form you are not required to do so. Most of our registration forms require only your name and e-mail address. When you submit information to us through the Sites, you will receive a confirmation e-mail if you enter a valid e-mail address. When you use our websites to search for information about our festival, you are not providing us with any personal information. We offer the search features as a service to you. Company does not collect or retain any personal identifying information about you when you use the search features.

Company and our affiliates also use this information to help us improve the content and functionality of our websites and festival operations, to better understand our customers and markets, and to improve our products and services. Company and our affiliates may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about products or services we believe will be of interest to you. If we do so, each communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to “unsubscribe’ from receiving future communications.
Similarly, we may provide “subscription” e-mail services, either directly or through affiliates, which enable you to receive current news and updates about the Googamooga or Company. For all such services, we will provide an opportunity to “unsubscribe” from, or cancel, the subscription. Please see the Terms and Conditions page, located at http://mailchimp.com/legal/terms/ for more information about our use of the communications we receive through the Googamooga.com website.
Anonymous Data Collected
In addition to the information you provide when you use the Sites, Company uses technology to collect anonymous information about the use of the Sites. For example, we use technology to track how many visitors access the Sites, the date and time of their visit, the length of their stay, and which pages they viewed. We also use technology to determine which web browsers our visitors use and the address from which they accessed the Sites (for example, if they connected to a Company website by clicking on one of our banner ads).
This technology does not identify you personally. It simply enables us to compile statistics about our visitors and their use of our sites. Company and our affiliates use this anonymous data and share it with third parties to improve the content and functionality of our websites, to better understand our customers and markets, and to improve our products and services.
IP Addresses and Click-stream Data
We may collect IP addresses and/or click-stream data for purposes of system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers and sponsors.
An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. Our computers identify your computer by its IP address. When you request web pages from the Sites, our computers log your IP address. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web site. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic information. We may also link your IP address to personally identifiable information for fraud prevention purposes.
Click-stream data is information collected by our computers when you request Web pages from the Sites. Click-stream data may include such information as the page served, the time, the source of the request, the type of browser making the request, the preceding page view and other such non-personal information. When analyzed, this data helps us analyze how visitors arrive at the website what type of content is most popular, what type of visitors in the aggregate are interested in particular kinds of content and advertising, and the like.

These companies may need information about you in order to perform their functions. These companies are not authorized to use the information we share with them for any other purpose. In addition, there may be some other, limited circumstances in which Company or our affiliates may share or transfer the personal data in our databases, for example, to comply with a legal requirement, for the administration of justice, to protect your vital interests, or in the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution, with your permission or similar event. While no method of data transmission is guaranteed against unlawful third party interception or other misuse, Company uses commercially reasonable efforts to ensure protection of your data including industry-standard encryption and offline security methods at our physical facilities.

Link to Other Sites
When you purchase a cashless card for the 2012 Great GoogaMooga Festival (the “Card”), we will collect certain data to facilitate and/or execute the order. Purchasers will be asked to provide an email address to associate with the Card, though providing such information is strictly voluntary. The Cards contain radio frequency identification (RFID) chips that track what the Card owner purchases. The RFID technology also allows us to collect anonymous information about the users, such as tracking general purchasing habits allowing us to compile general statistics about our visitors, but does not identify the user personally.
We may use this information to help us to better understand our customers and markets and to improve our products and services. If you provide your email address, we may also use this information to contact you about products or services we believe will be of interest to you. If we do so, each communication we send will contain instructions permitting you to “unsubscribe” from receiving future communications. We will not share personal data (as opposed to anonymous data) except with third-party vendors that provide support services to us (such as data processing services, or companies that help us market our products and services), but only if they need information about you in order to perform their functions. These companies are not authorized to use the information we share with them for any other purpose. There may also be some other, limited circumstances in which we may share or transfer the personal data in our databases, for example, to comply with a legal requirement, for the administration of justice, to protect your vital interests, or in the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event. Company makes no representation that this policy accords with the laws of other states or nations. Those who choose to use the Card do so on their own initiative and at their own risk, and are responsible for complying with all local laws, rules and regulations.
While no method of data transmission is guaranteed against unlawful third party interception or other misuse, we use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure protection of personal data including industry-standard encryption and offline security methods. Our employees and contractors may have access to personal information, but such access will be limited to a need-to-know basis.
