1. Data We Collect And Store
We may collect and store the following information when running the Service:
Information You Provide. To use the Service, you may be invited to register an account, at which point we may collect some personal information, such as your name, eMail address, home or business postal addresses, or other information. You may also ask us to import your contacts by giving us access to your third party services (for example, your eMail account) or to use your social networking information if you give us access to your account on social network connection services. If we offer a referral page allowing you to invite others to join Playbill or share content, we send them a one-time eMail. You may also provide us with your contacts' eMail addresses when sharing Data with them. We may also receive Personal Information (for example, your eMail address) through other users, for example if they have tried to share something with you or tried to refer Playbill to you. Similar information may also be required to participate in other online activities, special events, contests, surveys, or sweepstakes.
Pictures. Current or future features may collect and store the pictures you upload to the Service ("Pictures"). If you add a picture to Playbill that has been previously uploaded by you, we may associate all or a portion of the previous file with your account rather than storing a duplicate.
Log Data. When you use the Service, we automatically record information from your Device, its software, and your activity using the Services. This may include the Device's Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, the web page visited before you came to our website, information you search for on our website, locale preferences, identification numbers associated with your Devices, your mobile carrier, date and time stamps associated with transactions, system configuration information, metadata concerning your Data, and other interactions with the Service.

Geo-Location Information. Some Devices allow applications to access real-time location-based information (for example, GPS). Our Services do not collect such information from your mobile device at any time, as of the date this policy went into effect, but may do so in the future with as we improve our Services. Some photos or other files you place in Playbill may contain recorded location information. We may use this information to optimize your experience and it may be available to others if you choose to share it through Playbill. If you do not wish to share pictures embedded with your geo-location information, please do not upload them. If you do not want to store location data in your photos, please consult the documentation for your camera to turn off that feature. Also, some of the information we collect from a Device, for example IP address, can sometimes be used to approximate a Device's location.
3. Information Sharing and Disclosure
Your Use. We will display your Personal Information in your profile page and elsewhere on the Service according to the preferences you set in your account. Any information you choose to provide should reflect how much you want others to know about you. Please consider carefully what information you disclose in your profile page and your desired level of anonymity. Part of our program is designed to share your information, such as with guidance counselors, schools, and others. You control these choices, but once information is shared, you may not be able to maintain it as confidential in the future. You can review and revise your profile information at any time. We do not sell your personal information to third parties. We may also share or disclose your information with your consent, for example if you use a third party application to access your account (see below).
