Personal Information Collected on the Brickenden Awards Website
When you become an Academy member or register a production on www.brickenden.org we collect certain types of personal information. That information includes:
- your name, address, phone number and email address;
- names, titles, and other information relevant to registering your production for adjudication.
This information is collected and used for a number of purposes:
- To establish and maintain a relationship with you (and your production company) and to ensure that members of the adjudication panel and Academy members know that you have registered a production. Registration information is retained by us to enable our web site to identify you, to allow you to set up and access your registration information. The relevant information is also posted to our public theatre section of the web site. This information is used only for these purposes and is only retained in our database for internal management, nomination procedures and auditing purposes, unless you are informed otherwise or you provide your consent.
Your email address will be used to send you notification of registration and to provide you with updates if you have requested them.
The nature of the Internet is such that it passively and automatically collects certain information about a user’s traffic patterns, which may be linked to their Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. These are unique Internet “addresses” assigned to all Web users by their Internet Service Providers (ISP). Server logs record statistical information, such as visitors’ IP addresses, type of operating systems, time and duration of visit, web pages requested, and identify visitors by categories such as domains and browser types. These statistics are only used on an aggregate basis and will not contain any information that could identify you personally.
To meet legal, regulatory, security and processing requirements (such as in response to a court order), and otherwise as permitted or required by law.
We will not use your information for any other purpose without your prior consent.
Users also should be aware that non-personal information and data may be automatically collected through the standard operation of our Internet servers or through the use of “cookies”. Cookies are small text files containing a unique identification number that identifies your browser – but not you – to our servers each time you visit our web site. Cookies are not pervasive or invasive programs that enter a user’s system and damage files. They simply tell us which pages of our web site are visited and by how many visitors. Cookies cannot, by themselves, disclose the individual identity of any site user, and we never combine information gathered by a cookie with personally identifiable information like your name, telephone number or email address, without your consent.
Third Parties’ Access to Information
The Brickenden Awards are not in the business of selling visitor information to others. Our visitor information is not available for sale to any outside entity. We contract with third parties to fulfill certain functions on our behalf, such as analyzing data, preparing and maintaining site content, and processing the nominaton results. These agents have access to customer information only as required in order to help them perform their functions on our behalf, but they are not allowed to use that information for any other purpose and must keep such information confidential.
www.brickenden.org will release customer information to the appropriate law enforcement, governmental or other authorities if legally required to do so. www.brickenden.org will also release such information if we feel it is necessary in order to protect our rights or the rights of our members, registered production companies or any other party and for purposes of protection from fraud.
Non-Secure Web Site Areas
You should be aware that if you voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information (e.g., user name, email address) on non-secure areas of the web site, that information can be collected and correlated and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from third parties. Such activities are beyond our control.
We store Academy member and registered production information, including log-in and password information, on our web site in a secure manner. We store such information in a manner not accessible to Web browsers, behind firewall and password protection, or offline.
Employees, agents and affiliates of www.brickenden.org who require access to your personal information in order to fulfill their job or contractual requirements will have access to your personal information to the extent necessary to fulfill such requirements.
