- The ImaginAsian™ Privacy Policy
Last updated on June 23, 2004

The ImaginAsian ("IA")

IA supports a general policy of openness about personal data collection and use. We have adopted and implemented this Privacy Policy as part of our commitment to protecting your personal information from misuse.

This Privacy Policy applies to our information-gathering and dissemination practices for this site: theimaginasian.com (the "Website"). This Privacy Policy also applies to IA services contained on other sites, so long as such services contain IA's branding, and IA has provided a link to this Privacy Policy in connection with such services.

What information does IA collect on its Website?
IA collects both personal information and aggregated information on its Website. We discuss our collection and use of different kinds of information below.

Personal Information
You do not have to provide personal information to use our Website. However, particular services provided through the Website may require that you furnish personal information. We collect such personal information only when you provide it to us - for example, in answering surveys; entering contests and sweepstakes; registering to receive electronic newsletters, television listings and other materials; participating in message boards, book clubs, and quizzes; purchasing items from our stores; and taking part in other promotional opportunities. You may be asked to provide your contact information (such as your name, postal address, telephone numbers and/or email address), financial information (such as credit card numbers) and demographic information (such as your Zip code, age, or income level) in connection with your use of such services.

Contact information is used to respond to your inquiries; to notify you if you have won a contest or a quiz and to send products and services ordered from our Website. You also may receive periodic mailings from us with information on new products and services, updates to our Website, or upcoming events.

We may share our user mailing list with reputable and carefully screened firms for marketing or promotional purposes. We may also forward information to you regarding third party products or services, without disclosing your personal information to such third parties. You may opt out of having your contact information as part of our mailing list at any time (see the Opt-Out Section below).

You may be asked to provide information (occupation, hobbies, short biography, your homepage, etc.) in creating a user profile in our public forums. If you choose to provide this information, it will be accessible to other users of the Website (See Public Forums Section below).

We use IP addresses to calculate Website usage levels. Whenever you are on the Internet, a number (an IP address) is automatically assigned to your computer. This number is identified and logged automatically whenever you visit our Website. Collecting IP addresses is standard practice on the Internet, and is done automatically by many Websites.

Demographic information, as well as usage data calculated from logging IP addresses, is shared with advertisers and third parties only on an aggregated basis. (See the Aggregated Information Section below.)

Whenever we request your personal information on our Website, to the extent that we intend to use it in a manner not disclosed in this Privacy Policy, we will try to explain to you how we intend to use it, and to provide you with a choice to decline certain uses. In addition, if we plan to post any of your personal information on our Website, we will also notify you of this possibility either when you provide information to us or prior to posting the information. Please note that by entering any contest or quiz, you consent to our announcing your name and hometown as part of any list of winners.

We may also disclose personal information if we believe that we are required to do so (i) by law, (ii) to comply with legal process or governmental requests, (iii) to enforce our Terms of Service, or (iv) to protect the rights, property, or safety of IA, its users or the public.

Our Policy on Disclosing Your Information to Parties Other than IA

We only share or disclose your personal information with companies other than IA when it is required by law, it is necessary to operate the website or our website services, to protect the safety of our visitors, employees or property, and/or when disclosure is consistent with IA's practices for services that are similarly provided offline. We may also share or rent online subscription information with other entities for various purposes such as marketing or promotional purposes. Visitors submitting online subscriptions who do not want their personal information shared with other entities may be able to either grant their approval on how their personal information will be used before it is collected ("opt-in"), or choose to deny use of their information for additional purposes ("opt-out").

Opt-Out

You may inform us if you wish to remove your personal information from our database, and we will endeavor to comply with your request as soon as reasonably possible. Please note that we may need to retain certain information for record keeping purposes, and there may also be residual information that will remain within our databases and other records. We reserve the right, from time to time, to re-contact former users of our Website.

We give you the following options for removing your personal information from our database in order to stop receiving future communications from our Website.

IA is a subsidiary of ImaginAsian Entertainment, Incorporated. ("IAEI") We may in the future share personal information with IAEI, our affiliates or other entities for other purposes.

If we decide to enter into other sharing arrangements, we will disclose in this Privacy Policy the name of the entity(s) that we will share information with, what type of personal information will be shared, how the information will be used, and whether you will be able to opt-in or opt-out of the sharing of your personal information. We currently conduct joint activities with other members of the ImaginAsian Entertainment Inc. family; however, we will not share individual visitors' personal information with these entities unless we provide notice in this Privacy Policy.

When visitors send an e-mail to us, we will protect your e-mail address and other personal contact information. However, we may disclose the content of your e-mail to other persons. Please see our Terms Of Service. We may share your personal information with our operational providers or those persons, companies or agents who provide support for the internal operations of the website, such as contest fulfillment services, maintenance and technical services, and e-commerce and auction contractors. If you are purchasing goods, merchandise or services on this website and use a credit card to complete the transaction, our operational providers may share your personal information and credit card number with a ticket agent, a credit card processing and/or a shipping/fulfillment company in order to complete your order.

We may provide aggregate information about our visitors to our advertisers, sponsors, promotional partners, parents and affiliates, such as how many persons visited a particular page or activity, the average age of our visitors on the site or page, or the likes and dislikes of our visitors, but this information does not include personal information about any individual visitor. We may also obtain geographic information such as zip code clustering from other sources. This aggregate information will not reveal any personal information about a specific visitor.

Aggregated Information

We collect information through our Website relating to traffic levels on our Website - for example, the total number of users visiting particular pages. We also collect and analyze aggregate demographic information, the results of surveys as well as information relating to the search functionality on the Website.

Aggregated information is helpful to us for improving the services we offer and for marketing purposes. We may share aggregated information, which does not personally identify you, with our advertisers, business partners, or other companies.

Use of Cookies by IA

Cookies are data that a Website transfers to an individual's computer for record keeping purposes. Cookies, which are an industry standard used by most Websites, can facilitate a user's ongoing access to and use of a site. Cookies do not cause damage to your computer systems or files.

We use a temporary cookie to track the products you have chosen to purchase while shopping on our Website. The cookie expires once you are done shopping. The cookie saves you the trouble of entering information again during a single visit. We also use cookies in our discussion areas to eliminate the need to log in every time you use the book clubs and other message boards on our Website.

In addition, from time to time, we may use cookies and other technologies to gather non-personally identifiable information to track the popularity of certain pages of our Website; the success of our email notifications and ad campaigns on third-party sites, based on click-through rates; and other similar information, all of which assists us in seeking to improve our Website and related services.

If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to automatically decline cookies, or to be given the choice of declining or accepting the transfer of a cookie to your computer. You should note, however, that declining the cookies may make it difficult for you to make purchases on our Website and will make entering our discussion areas more burdensome.

Public Forums

We may make discussion areas, message boards, and/or clubs available to our users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information, and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information.

To register for the public forums, you will need to select a screen name and provide your email address. A password is required to log into the public forums. Depending on the site, you will either select your own password at the time of registration or will receive an email notification from us with a randomly generated initial password.

Whenever you contribute to a public forum, your screen name, linking to your profile, will automatically appear with your post. When you log into the discussion forums, you will be able to set up your profile, which you may edit at any time. You have the ability to change your password within the profile. Your password will never be visible to other users as part of your profile. Providing information as part of the profile is entirely optional.

If you have indicated as part of your profile that you would like to accept private messages, other users will be able to communicate with you by sending you "private messages," without actual knowledge of your email address.

On all other public forums on our Website, information that you provide as part of your user profile, except your password and email address, will be accessible to other users of the site by clicking on your screen name associated with any of your postings. However, you may also opt to display your email address with your posts.

Service Providers

We work with third parties who provide services including but not limited to website hosting, order processing and fulfillment, credit card clearance, e-commerce affiliation, data analysis, emailing and other services of an administrative nature. Personal information, including financial information, is shared with such third parties for the purpose of providing such services.

Security

We have security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Any time we ask for a credit card number we transmit that credit card number in an encrypted format. We use industry-standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.

Links to Third Party Sites

Our Website may contain links to third-party Websites. The linked sites are not under the control of IA, and we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the contents of any linked site, or any link contained in a linked site. We are providing these links only as a convenience, and the inclusion of a link on our Website does not imply endorsement of the linked site by IA.

Third-Party Ad Serving

The use of advertising cookies sent by third-party servers is standard in the Internet industry, and our advertisers may assign their own cookies to your browser. Through cookie and other technology, advertisers may collect certain non-personally identifiable information about you from your visits to our Website and to other sites where ads are served by such advertisers. This information may be used to deliver tailored ads to you. We do not control this process, and these cookies are subject to advertisers' policies. However, the advertisers' do not obtain, through use of cookies or otherwise, any personally identifiable information from us or our Website.
