THE INTERNET, PRIVACY AND STX
The Internet contains a wealth of information; unfortunately, it may also contain personal details about you that you don't want everyone to know. For example, your real name (lots of people on the Internet use aliases, alter egos, or nicknames), street address, phone number, or e-mail address. When you go online, sites you visit may be gathering information about you without your knowledge. At STX, we strive to help our customers protect their privacy while using our services.
STX's policy is to respect and protect the privacy of our users. This policy statement tells you how we collect information from you and how we use it. Using the Internet should be a fun experience and we want to help you make it so. Be assured that STX will not disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent, unless we believe in good faith that the law requires it. There are cases where STX may ask you for personal information such as your name, e-mail address, and birth date. For example, we request personal information when you register for services that require registration. STX needs to collect this information for fulfilling prizes, tracking/verifying compliance with STX policies as well as federal, state, and local laws. In the event you change your mind or some personal information changes, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update, or remove the personal data you give us. You can do this by contacting our Web Site Support Service at 800-368-2250.
POLICIES FOR KIDS ( INDIVIDUALS UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE)
STX encourages parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate in the activities offered on the sites. No information should be submitted to or posted at STX by guests under 13 years of age without the consent of their parent or guardian. Unless otherwise disclosed during collection, STX does not provide any personally identifying information, regardless of its source, to any third party for any purpose whatsoever from our guests under 13 years of age. All registrants receive an e-mail confirming their Registration. In addition, when a guest under 13 registers, he/she is required to provide the e-mail address of his/her parent or guardian and that parent or guardian receives an e-mail alerting them to that Registration. No information collected from guests under 13 years of age is used for any marketing or promotional purposes whatsoever, except as explicitly stated during registration for contests or promotions (and in that case, the information collected is used only for the specific contest or promotion). Although guests under 13 years of age may be allowed to participate in some contests and promotions, if such a guest wins, notification and prizes are sent to the parent or guardian identified in the initial registration process. Publication of names, ages, or images for contest winners under 13 require parental or guardian consent.
