Below you will find the Privacy Policy for Celebration Ministries, Inc. (“CMI”). CMI is dedicated to protecting your privacy and handling any personal information CMI obtains from you with care and respect. This Privacy Policy is designed to answer your questions regarding CMI’s privacy policies and principles.This Privacy Policy is effective July 13, 2009.

  • WHAT INFORMATION DOES THIS PRIVACY POLICY COVER?

    Except as specifically described below in A2 and A6, this Privacy Policy applies only to personally identifiable information collected on the Web sites where this Privacy Policy is posted and does not apply to any other information collected by CMI through any other means. When this Privacy Policy uses the term “personally identifiable information,” CMI’s mean information that identifies a particular individual, such as the individual’s name, postal address, e-mail address, and telephone number. When other information (such as, for example, consumer product preferences or number of children) is directly associated with personally identifiable information, this other information also is treated as personally identifiable information for purposes of this Privacy Policy. Personally identifiable information does not include screen names (also known as member names, usernames or other online aliases) provided by our guests in the course of registering with or using any of our Web sites, except in circumstances in which CMI requests that guests provide their e-mail addresses as their screen names. Personally identifiable information is sometimes referred to in this Privacy Policy as “personal information.” Finally, the terms of this Privacy Policy are subject to all applicable laws.

  • WHAT TYPES OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION DOES CMI COLLECT ABOUT VISITORS TO OUR SITE?

    CMI collects several types of personally identifiable information about our visitors to our site.

    INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO CMI
    Much of the personally identifiable information CMI receives comes directly from visitors to CMI’s site who are interested in obtaining various products and services from CMI. Typically, this information includes the visitor’s name, postal address, e-mail address, and telephone number. CMI may also collect other types of information such as gender, age, number of children, and personal interests, which CMI may associate with personally identifiable information. If you purchase products or services from CMI, CMI will note, for example, credit card information, the type of services or products ordered or purchased, and the date of the order or purchase. You may also provide CMI photographs or other video materials, which may contain personal information. CMI may collect personal information when you register on, log on, or visit CMI’s site. Finally, CMI’s site may offer message boards, conversation pages, chat rooms, social community environments, profile pages, and other public forums as well as other features in which you may provide CMI with user submissions. If you provide personal information when you use any of these features, that personal information may be publicly posted and otherwise disclosed without limitation as to its use by a third party.

    INFORMATION COLLECTED THROUGH TECHNOLOGY
    CMI collects information through technology to make CMI’s site more interesting and useful to you and for various purposes related to CMI’s business. For instance, when you come to CMI’s site, CMI collects your IP address. An IP address is associated with the access point through which you enter the Internet, and is typically controlled by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), your company, or your university. Standing alone, your IP address is not personally identifiable. CMI may use IP addresses to collect information regarding the frequency with which visitors visit various parts of CMI’s site, and CMI may combine IP addresses with personally identifiable information.

    CMI’s site collect information through a variety of technical methods, including cookies and Web beacons. Cookies are pieces of information that a Web site sends to your computer while you are viewing the Web site. Web beacons are small pieces of data that are embedded in images on the pages of Web sites. Cookies, web beacons and other technical methods may involve the transmission of information either directly to CMI or to another party authorized by CMI to collect information on CMI’s behalf.

    CMI may use the information collected through these technical methods for many purposes, including delivering content, tracking and enhancing the visitor’s experience on CMI’s site. For example, when you return to CMI’s site after logging in, cookies provide information to the site so that the site will remember who you are. CMI also may use technical methods to analyze the traffic patterns on the site, such as the frequency with which CMI visitors visit various parts of CMI’s site, and third party sites, such as the frequency with which our visitors other web sites. In HTML e-mails that CMI send, CMI may use technical methods for a number of purposes, including: to determine whether visitors have opened or forwarded those e-mails and/or clicked on links in those e-mails, to customize the display of banner advertisements and other messages after a visitor has closed the e-mail, and to determine whether a visitor has made an inquiry or purchase in response to a particular e-mail. These technical methods may enable CMI to collect and use information in a form that is personally identifiable.

    Many advertisements are managed and placed on CMI’s site by third parties. These companies are called “network advertisers.” Network advertisers who place advertisements on CMI’s site may use cookies and Web beacons to collect non-personally identifiable information about your visits to our Web sites and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like to obtain more information about the practices of some of these network advertisers and to make choices about their use of your information, please click here. Finally, please keep in mind that if you click on an advertisement on one of CMI’s site and link to a third party’s web site, then this Privacy Policy will not apply to your personally identifiable information collected on that third party’s Web site and you must read the privacy policy posted on that site to see how your personally identifiable information will be handled.

    INFORMATION THAT CMI COLLECTS FROM OTHERS
    CMI may update and supplement personally identifiable information that CMI has collected directly from visitors to CMI’s site with other information that CMI obtains from third parties. In addition, CMI may obtain personally identifiable information about individuals who are not yet users of CMI’s site. In addition, when CMI obtains information from third parties with personally identifiable information that CMI have collected under this Privacy Policy, CMI will treat the acquired information like the information that CMI collected itself and, except as permitted by this Privacy Policy, the information will not be shared with third parties.

  • HOW IS YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION USED AND SHARED?

    As described in detail below, CMI may use your personally identifiable information in many ways, including sending you promotional materials, and sharing your information with third parties so that these third parties can send you promotional materials. (By “promotional materials,” CMI means communications that directly promote the use of Web sites, or the purchase of products or services.) As outlined below in A4, you may “opt out” of certain uses of your personal information.

    GENERAL PROVISIONS FOR SHARING AND USE BY CMI, LICENSEES AND CO-BRANDING PARTICIPANTS
    Personally identifiable information collected under this Privacy Policy is shared among and used by CMI for many purposes. For example, CMI may use your personal information to send you promotional materials about goods and services (including special offers and promotions) either offered by CMI or offered by third parties. These promotional materials may be sent to you by postal mail, e-mail or other means. You may opt out of receiving these communications as provided in A4 below. Please keep in mind, however, that when you purchase or request products or services (or information about products or services) from CMI, promotional materials about goods and services offered by a third party may accompany delivery of the product, service or information that you have requested. CMI refers to sending you promotional materials in these circumstances as “Fulfillment Uses” of your personal information.

    CMI may also use your personal information for many purposes other than sending you promotional materials. (CMI refers to all of these types of uses of your personal information that do not involve the sending of promotional materials as “Operational Uses.”) For example, CMI may use your information to complete transactions requested by you (such as your purchase of a product or service offered on CMI’s site), or to send you administrative communications either about your account with CMI or about features of CMI’s site, including any future changes to this Privacy Policy. Finally,

    CMI may take your personally identifiable information and make it non-personally identifiable, either by combining it with information about other individuals (aggregating your information with information about other individuals), or by removing characteristics (such as your name) that make the information personally identifiable to you (de-personalizing your information). Given the nature of this information, there are no restrictions under this Privacy Policy upon the right of CMI to aggregate or de-personalize your personal information, and CMI may use and/or share with third parties the resulting non-personally identifiable information in any way.

    NON-REGISTERED TRANSACTIONS WITH CMI
    You may engage in some transactions on CMI’s site without registering and logging on the Web sites. These transactions may include purchasing products and services, entering contests and sweepstakes, and requesting special promotional materials. An example of a Non-Registered Transaction would be when you purchase items from DisneyShopping.com without registering and logging on that Web site. The following paragraphs of this “Non-Registered Transactions with The Walt Disney Family of Companies” section describe the special provisions of this Privacy Policy that apply to Non-Registered Transactions.

    When you engage in a Non-Registered Transaction: (a) personal information that you provide during your transaction will not be shared with any third party, and (b) you will have the opportunity to opt out (as described in A4 below) of allowing personal information that you provide during your transaction. If you permit CMI to send you promotional materials, you may withdraw the permission (i) during a subsequent Non-Registered Transaction or (ii) by clicking here and following the instructions. If you withdraw a permission and subsequently engage in another Non-Registered Transaction, you again may grant permission at the time of that transaction to allow CMI to send promotional materials to you. In some instances, if you grant a permission and subsequently withdraw that permission within 30 days (or you withdraw a permission and subsequently grant a new permission within 30 days), your subsequent action may be disregarded. Therefore, to be certain that any modification of your permission status will be effective, please wait 30 days before making any such modification.

    If you withdraw a permission by following the procedures described in the previous paragraph, it may take up to thirty (30) days (unless a shorter time period is required by applicable law) for CMI to stop sharing your personal information.

    In addition, please note that A4 of this Privacy Policy describes various exceptions that apply to opt-out choices you may make, and these exceptions apply to any choices that you make regarding the use of your personal information that you provide during Non-Registered Transactions.

    Finally, please remember that the opt-out choices that you make during Non-Registered Transactions will not affect the opt-out choices that you make while registered and logged on to CMI’s site, and the opt-out choices that you make while registered and logged on to CMI’s site will not affect the opt-out choices that you make during Non-Registered Transactions.

    THIRD PARTIES OFFERING PROMOTIONS, PRODUCTS, OR SERVICES
    Subject to your opt-out choices (see A4 below), CMI may share your personal information with selected third parties so that they can send you promotional materials about goods and services (including special offers and promotions) offered by them. (CMI calls this type of sharing “promotional sharing” or sharing for “promotional purposes.”) When sharing your information for promotional purposes, CMI attempts to select only reputable companies that offer high quality products and services. Moreover, CMI will not share your e-mail address with third parties for promotional purposes, except when you consent to such sharing in the course of your participation in a Sponsored Activity as described below. When CMI shares your personal information with a third party under any circumstance described in this “Third Parties Offering Promotions, Products, or Services” section, your personal information will become permanently subject to the information use and sharing practices of the third party, and the third party will not be restricted by this Privacy Policy with respect to its use and further sharing of your personal information.

    In addition to the promotional sharing that is subject to your opt-out choices under A4 below, CMI may also share your information when you engage in certain activities on CMI’s site that are sponsored by third parties, such as purchasing products or services offered by a third party, electing to receive information or communications from a third party, or electing to participate in contests, sweepstakes, games or other programs sponsored in whole or in part by a third party. CMI may also share your personal information when you respond to promotional materials from CMI and authorize a third party to use your personal information for purposes such as, for example, sending you additional promotional materials, providing you a product or service, or entering you in a contest, sweepstakes or game. (CMI refers to all of these activities and requests as “Sponsored Activities.”) When you participate in Sponsored Activities, you will either be required or requested to agree that the sponsor or business associate may use your personal information (including, in some cases, your e-mail address) in accordance with the sponsor or business associate’s privacy practices. Since you will have consented to this specific instance of sharing of your personal information, the opt-out choice for “Third Parties” described in A4 below will not apply.

    COMPANIES THAT FACILITATE COMMUNICATIONS AND TRANSACTIONS WITH YOU
    Sometimes CMI hires companies to help provide products or services, like a shipping company that delivers a package or a company that helps fulfill prizes for a sweepstakes. In those instances, there is a need to share your information with these companies. Sometimes CMI also works with other companies who help either gather your information or communicate with you, such as a company that helps to provide customer service. Your opt-out choices under A4 below will not apply to sharing by CMI of your personal information with any of these companies. Nonetheless, except as separately permitted by other provisions of this Privacy Policy, these companies are allowed to gather, receive, and use your information only for the purposes described in this paragraph or to facilitate compliance with laws.

    COMPANIES THAT YOU PREVIOUSLY AUTHORIZED TO OBTAIN YOUR INFORMATION
    In certain circumstances, your dealings with a third party may have authorized that third party to obtain your personal information from CMI and to use that information in accordance with the third party’s own privacy practices and policies. For example, in using an online shopping service (such as the shopping services offered by Internet portals that refer the portal’s users to third-party merchants), you may have authorized that shopping service to obtain from the service’s participating third-party merchants (including CMI) information about your purchases conducted through the shopping service. In such circumstances, your opt-out elections under A4 below will not apply to sharing of your personal information by CMI. Nonetheless, CMI will provide such companies only the information that you authorized (except as separately permitted under other provisions of this Privacy Policy). In the example given above, the shopping service would be provided only information concerning purchases you made from CMI through that shopping service, and would not be provided any other information concerning you, unless any additional sharing of your personal information were separately permitted under another provision of this Privacy Policy.

    DISCLOSURES TO COMPLY WITH LAWS AND DISCLOSURES TO HELP OTHERS
    Regardless of any opt-out choices that you make under A4, CMI will disclose personal information when it believes in good faith that such disclosures (a) facilitate compliance with laws, including, for example, compliance with a court order or subpoena, or (b) will help to: enforce our Terms of Use; enforce contest, sweepstakes, promotions, and/or game rules; protect your safety or security, including the safety and security of property that belongs to you; and/or, protect the safety and security of CMI’s site, CMI, and/or third parties.

  • WHAT CHOICES DO YOU HAVE ABOUT THE COLLECTION, USE, AND SHARING OF YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION?

    With regard to personal information that you have provided under this Privacy Policy, there are two separate opt-out choices available to you. These opt-out choices are the means by which you give CMI, or decline to give CMI, your consent to use your personal information for the purposes covered by these opt-out choices. Please be assured, however, that if any one of these opt-out choices is not presented to you on a Web site, then personal information collected from you on that site will not be used for the purposes covered by that opt-out choice. There are several methods by which you can exercise your opt-out choices: (a) during the registration process on our Web sites; (b) after registration, by logging on our Web sites, clicking on our Privacy Policy links, going to a site’s Guest Services center (sometimes called a site’s “Member Services” or “Preference” center), and following the opt-out directions; and (c) as described below in A6. Each of these opt-out choices is subject to the exceptions described further below in this A4.

    Your two opt-out choices are:

    THIRD PARTIES:
    You may choose to opt out of receiving promotional materials from third parties. If you do not choose this opt-out, CMI may share your personal information so that third parties can send you these promotional materials. Your opt-out choices for third parties generally are specific to the particular Web sites where you make these choices.

    CMI:
    If you do not want to receive future e-mails from CMI, please let CMI know by sending CMI an e-mail to info@cmievents.com and typing “Unsubscribe” in the subject window.

  • WHAT KINDS OF SECURITY MEASURES DOES CMI TAKE TO SAFEGUARD YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION?

    The security and confidentiality of your information is extremely important to CMI. CMI has implemented technical, administrative, and physical security measures to protect visitor information from unauthorized access and improper use.

  • HOW CAN YOU UPDATE YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION AND OPT OUT CHOICES?

    You can access and update the contact information you gave CMI during registration (that is, your postal address, e-mail address, or any other information that would directly enable CMI to contact you), or modify your opt-out choices, by sending CMI an e-mail to info@cmievents.com.

  • HOW CAN YOU ASK QUESTIONS, OR SEND CMI COMMENTS, ABOUT THIS PRIVACY POLICY?

    If you have questions or wish to send CMI comments about this Privacy Policy, please send an e-mail with your questions or comments to info@cmievents.com or write CMi: PO BOX 220, Grapevine, Texas 76099.

    Please be assured that any personal information that you provide in communications to the above e-mail and postal mail addresses will not be used to send you promotional materials, unless you so request.

  • HOW WILL YOU KNOW IF CMI AMENDS THIS PRIVACY POLICY?

    CMI may amend this Privacy Policy at any time. If CMI amends this Privacy Policy to permit material changes in the way CMI collects, uses, and/or shares your personal information, CMI will notify you of such amendment by sending you an e-mail at the last e-mail address that you provided CMI, and/or by prominently posting notice of such amendment on the site covered by this Privacy Policy. Any such amendment to this Privacy Policy will be effective thirty (30) calendar days following either CMI’s dispatch of an e-mail notice to you or CMI’s posting of notice of the changes on the site covered by this Privacy Policy. Please note that, at all times, you are responsible for updating your personal information to provide CMI your current e-mail address. In the event that the last e-mail address that you have provided CMI is not valid, or for any other reason is not capable of delivering to you the notice described above, CMI dispatch of the e-mail containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice of the amendment described in the notice. In any event, an amendment to this Privacy Policy may permit material changes in the way CMI uses and shares personal information that you provided CMI prior to CMI’s notification to you of such amendment. If you do not wish to allow such material changes, you must so notify CMI (in the manner CMI specify) prior to the effective date of the amendment. If you provide CMI this notice, CMI may choose to deactivate your account. Please be advised, however, that, regardless of whether you provide such notice to CMI, any such amendment to this Privacy Policy will apply to any personal information that you provide CMI on or after the effective date of such amendment.

  • WHAT ADDITIONAL PRIVACY PROTECTIONS DOES CMI PROVIDE FOR CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13 WHO VISIT CMI’S SITE?

    CMI recognizes the need to provide additional privacy protections for children who visit CMI’s site.
