Children. Protecting the privacy of children is especially important. We recognize the importance of safeguarding the privacy of children and encourage parents to check and monitor their children's use of online activities regularly. The Westfield Website supports and complies with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") and other laws. The Westfield Website is not aimed at nor intended for children under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, please DO NOT USE the Westfield Website. Our website does not accept registration from children under the age of 13. No personally identifiable information (as defined in the COPPA, 15 U.S.C. Section 6501) is purposefully or knowingly collected from children under the age of 13 by the Westfield Website without parental consent. Every User hereby agrees that all information you provide, including but not limited to age, shall be truthful and correct. The Westfield Website will not condition a child's participation in an online activity upon the child providing more personally identifiable information than is reasonably necessary for participation in such activity.
How Your Information Is Stored - Information held about you (for example, your e-mail Newsletter subscriptions) is held in a database. The database is protected by a firewall as well as host-based security. The data is not transmitted over the Internet once it has been stored in the database. If Westfield ever has a requirement to transmit the data over the Internet (for example, to make an off-site backup) it will be in encrypted form.
Sharing of Information with Service Companies - One of the most valuable assets of our business is you. Westfield is not in the business of selling information about Users of the Westfield Website. However, if there is a value for our clients, we will share your information or send you messages on behalf of another company as described below. We will also share information for security reasons. Sometimes companies may be hired by Westfield to facilitate the sales or delivery of products or services, such as a shipping company for the delivery of packages or promotional literature. In those instances, we need to share your information with those third-party companies. These companies are basically "standing in the shoes" of Westfield, and they are allowed to use the information only for the purpose intended by the hiring of the company, such as delivering a product or service.
Promotions, Products, or Services - Westfield may offer promotions (e.g., sweepstakes or contests [hereafter "Promotions"]), sometimes in conjunction with the introduction or sales or products or services or a sponsor or advertiser. We will share your information with these sponsors and advertisers if they need it to send or provide you with promotion literature or documents, a commodity or prize. We may share your information with those sponsors so that they may send you other special promotions which they offer, but only if you give us your permission to do so, and we will endeavor to share it only with that specific sponsor or advertiser. In addition, Westfield occasionally may send e-mail promotions to the Users on behalf of third-party sponsors. Again, we only will send these promotions to you if you've given your permission. Separate registration of information may be required to enter Promotions. Registration for Promotions may require the submission of your first and last name, street address, city, state and zip code, email address, telephone number and date of birth. Additional Personal Information may be requested depending on the specific Promotion, but submission of such information may be optional. The Promotion's entry page and/or Rules will provide the specific requirements. You may also have the opportunity to opt-in to special Promotions or offers from our advertisers in connection with many of these types of Promotions.
Content Partners - On occasion the Westfield Website may provide content that is created by a third-party partner website. In some instances the third-party sites will collect information in order to facilitate the transaction or to make the use of their content more productive and efficient. In these circumstances the information collected is shared between Westfield and our third-party sponsors.
Purchase or Sale of Businesses - Online business is still in a very early stage and is changing and evolving rapidly. As Westfield continually looks for ways to improve its business, we may buy or sell a company. If we buy or sell a business, the names collected will likely be transferred as a part of the sale. Information about registrants will be used in the aggregate. However, if we buy a business, we will honor the requests that customers made of that business regarding e-mail communications. In the event that we sell a business, we will do everything in our power to ensure that the e-mail communications requests you made of us are honored.
We collect two types of information from users: personal data (consisting of your name, address, phone number and your e-mail address) and aggregated data (consisting of browser type, operating system, IP address, the number of visitors to the Westfield Website and information about traffic patterns on the Westfield Website, such as the pages of the Westfield Website accessed by users and the time spent by users on the Westfield Website).
Personal data is collected if and when you provide personal data to the Westfield Website during registration for access to the transactional and/or marketing transactional areas of the Westfield Website.
We may access and use your Personal Information to contact you if necessary, and we may access, use and/or disclose your Personal Information in response to a valid court order, subpoena, government investigation, or if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the requirements of the law or comply with legal process served on us; (b) protect and defend our rights or property, including our Affiliates; or (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Westfield Website or the public. In addition, we shall have the right to provide your Personal Information to an entity that acquires all or substantially all of our assets.
It is important to note that the Westfield Website contains links to other Web sites on the Internet, and that those Web sites may not follow the same privacy policies as this one. For instance, if you click on a link to a publication site, you will be taken away from the Westfield Website and to an entirely different Web site. These other Web sites may include links from advertisers, content providers and partners who may use our logo and/or style as a result of a co-branding agreement. These other Web sites may send their own cookies to you, and may collect data and make uses of it that we would not. We have no control over what information third parties track or collect, and we have no responsibility or liability for any tracking, data collection or other activities of third parties.
Security for all personally identifiable information is extremely important to us. Our electronic environments are real-time monitored by Westfield and a third-party specialist security monitoring company. 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 that you find on our Westfield Website. You use such information at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make efforts consistent with reasonable commercial practices to ensure its security on our systems. Notwithstanding the above, due to the open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that any information stored on our servers, or transmitted to or from you, will be free from unauthorized access. By using this Westfield Website, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks.
Please contact us to report any known or suspected privacy or security breaches or to submit privacy-related questions or complaints.
