This statement informs you of Mt. Wilson’s practices with respect to the online collection, use, and disclosure of personal information on the Mt. Wilson website. Personal information is information that allows us to contact you (such as an email address, home address, or telephone number) or other information that, when linked to your name or contact information, allows us to personalize your visit to our site by providing you with information that suits your interests.
Mt. Wilson is the owner of this website and retains all ownership rights to the information collected at this site. Mt. Wilson reserves the right to change, modify, add, or remove provisions of this Privacy Statement. Any changes to this Privacy Statement will be posted here, and we encourage you to check back from time to time.
Although you may use many features of this site without completing a registration or sign-up form, visitors who do register and/or sign up for special services may have access to additional features of the site and are more likely to receive information suited to their interests. For example, a registered user is eligible for additional services provided by this website such as personalized content. Our registration and special services sign-up forms may ask you for contact information (like name or email address) and demographic information (like zip code or age). You must provide the information in order to receive the benefits of registration or of the special service.
We may use the contact information you give us to better tailor your website experience to your interests, to request your opinions with respect to media and entertainment, and to send you information about Mt. Wilson and its services as well as promotional material on behalf of some of our partners. We may use information that you provide to us to inform you of content on the web, radio and other methods of content delivery, in which you may be interested and to provide or display the content according to your preferences.
In addition, we may share this information with advertisers or other third parties that are not part of Mt. Wilson on an aggregate or other basis that does not disclose your identity or contact information.
From time to time, we may conduct online surveys. These ask you for contact information (like your name or email address) and demographic information (like your zip code or age). We may use this contact information from our surveys to provide you with information about our company and promotional material on behalf of some of our partners, and to contact you when necessary.
For all contests we offer, we require all entries to include your name, email, mailing address, and phone number. This information is accessible by Triton Media, who built and oversees the Mt. Wilson rewards program on our website.
Additionally, from time to time, we offer opt-in contests run by third parties where you will be informed ahead of time that by entering a particular contest your information will be shared with the third party advertiser offering the contest. If you elect to opt-in to such contests, we are not responsible for what the advertiser does with that your information.
To enhance Mt. Wilson’s ability to tailor this site to your preferences, we may combine information that you provide us on registration and other online sign-up forms with other information about you that we may obtain. We do not share that information with any other party.
This Mt. Wilson site may offer shopping services, which may be offered by us or by a firm that operates a store under contract with us. If our site offers shopping or other commercial services, you will use a customer order form to request information, products, and services. The order form will ask you to give us contact information (like your name or email address), financial information (like your account or credit card numbers), and demographic information (like your zip code or age).
We will use the financial information that you provide to bill you for products and services. By giving our site your credit card and related personal information, you are authorizing our store to give that information to the merchant and credit card company in order to confirm and fulfill your order.
We will use contact information from the order form to fulfill your orders. We may also use contact data to get in touch with you when necessary. We will not otherwise use or distribute your financial information without your prior approval.
This site may make available chat rooms, forums, message boards, and news groups. Please remember that any information that you disclose in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information.
Information Sharing With Third Parties
From time to time we may enter into a special relationship with another company that is not owned by Mt. Wilson to provide additional features on this site. These special relationships may include “powered by” partners, business partners, sponsors, and co-branded sites (referred to here as “co-branded pages”). You should look for a specific privacy statement on any such co-branded page. Any personal information that you provide when signing up at one of those co-branded pages may be shared with our third party partner. You should also check our partner’s website for information regarding its privacy policies.
Also, the nature of some features of our site may require that we share personal information about you with persons or companies outside of Mt. Wilson. For example, this may occur at a feature that enables you, via our site, to ask questions of persons or entities that are not part of Mt. Wilson. By responding to those features of the site, whether by email or direct entry of information on our website, you are consenting to our transferring that information to such persons or entities.
With respect to specific registration modules, like contests, we may disclose personal information collected, and we will post a conspicuous statement on the registration module to the effect that we will be disclosing the information collected with third parties (see above section on online surveys/contests).
Finally, we may share any of the information collected from you with these other non-Mt. Wilson companies on an aggregate basis. The aggregated information is not linked to any information that can identify you.
IP Address and Log Files
We may use your IP address to administer our website, to help diagnose problems with our server, to analyze trends, to track users’ webpage movements, to help identify you and your shopping cart, and to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
In addition, on occasion our site may also set a “session cookie” which helps us administer the site. The session cookie expires when you close your browser and does not retain any information about you after it expires.
We license ad-server software from another company to place banner advertising on our sites. All of the data provided and generated by the ad-server software remains in our possession and no data is transferred to the licensor of the software. This feature of our site may, on occasion, set “cookies” on your computer. Any information collected or stored by the ad-service or the cookies is treated in the same manner as other information as described in this statement.
