The Convention Center Visitors' Guide to Philadelphia ("The Convention Center Visitors' Guide to Philadelphia", "We" or "Us") has created this Privacy Statement to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for the The Convention Center Visitors' Guide to Philadelphia web site (the "PhillyVisitor Site").

We gather certain information that you provide to us, some passively and some actively, and we want to ensure that all users of the PhillyVisitor Site are aware of exactly how and for what purpose that information is being used. The Convention Center Visitors' Guide to Philadelphia believes that the information you provide to us is essential to your enjoyment and successful use of the PhillyVisitor Site. Our collection of information enables us to provide you with a personalized web experience, and assists our sales team and advertisers in efficiently reaching an appropriate audience. The information we request is the minimum we believe necessary to achieve this goal.

1. What data does The Convention Center Visitors' Guide to Philadelphia collect?
  a) Certain data is automatically collected from all visitors to the PhillyVisitor Site. This data includes the type of browser you use to surf the Internet. We track the top ten IP addresses; this information is updated as data comes in, and there is no record of the prior top ten. We may also have statistics on the date and time you accessed the PhillyVisitor Site, how long you stayed on the PhillyVisitor Site, and what pages you visited. If you have configured your browser with your e-mail address, this data may also be available to us.
  b) The Convention Center Visitors' Guide to Philadelphia makes use of cookies on its sites. A cookie is a file transferred from a website to the hard drive of your computer so that the website may track your activities on the website. Cookies, by themselves, do not let a website know any personally identifying information about you, such as your real name, address, etc., unless you previously provided that information at the website or have set your preferences in your browser to provide that information. The Convention Center Visitors' Guide to Philadelphia is not generally interested in any one individual and does not collect personally identifiable information about any one person using cookies. Cookie technology allows The Convention Center Visitors' Guide to Philadelphia to invite you to join our mailing list, and then blocks the ad from popping up on your next visit to the site. We have not used cookies for any other purpose, to date. If we do, this Privacy Statement will reflect that change.
  c) To access the PhillyVisitor Site, you do not have to provide any personal information. Some features of the PhillyVisitor Site do request personal information of you before granting access, however.
    c1) The PhillyVisitor Site has a newsletter distributed via e-mail. If you choose to subscribe to this feature, you must provide a valid e-mail address. Your e-mail address will be used only by The Convention Center Visitors' Guide to Philadelphia for the distribution of the newsletter and any promotions or marketing that we feel may be of interest to you and will not be divulged to any third party, except as required by court order. To no longer receive newsletters from us, the instructions on the bottom of the newsletters will explain how to have your name removed.
    c2) Occasionally, The Convention Center Visitors' Guide to Philadelphia will request you to fill out a user survey. Such surveys are optional to you, the users, but these surveys allow The Convention Center Visitors' Guide to Philadelphia to better understand the demographics and interests of our users. Your responses in combination with the responses of our other users help The Convention Center Visitors' Guide to Philadelphia to improve the PhillyVisitor Site and attract sponsors and advertisers. Should you choose to participate in such a survey, please note The Convention Center Visitors' Guide to Philadelphia' policies regarding the sharing of user information with third parties as stated in paragraph 3c. If and when The Convention Center Visitors' Guide to Philadelphia does choose to share its user information, it does so only in the aggregate such that the third party will not be able to identify any individual user.
    c3) The Convention Center Visitors' Guide to Philadelphia may, occasionally, run contests, sweepstakes, or other promotions sponsored by The Convention Center Visitors' Guide to Philadelphia or our partners and sponsors. If you are identified as a winner, The Convention Center Visitors' Guide to Philadelphia may request your name and mailing address.
