First Act never automatically collects any information that specifically identifies Users, such as their name, address, e-mail address, or credit card information. First Act collects personally identifiable information from Users who are over 13 years of age, and only when Users voluntarily provide it as part of the registration process ("Registration Information"). We always ask Users whenever we need Registration Information that identifies Users or allows us to contact Users.
First Act may collect and use personally identifiable information from Users for purposes other than Website registration, e.g., such as subscribing to a newsletter, participating in polls, surveys, and questionnaires, using tell-a-friend features, participating in contests, sweepstakes, or other promotions, or receiving technical support.
Consent and Security
It is Your choice whether or not You provide Your Registration Information to First Act, but Registration Information is required in order for First Act to provide You with certain services (the "Services").
Use of Personal Information
Non-personally identifying information ("Usage Information") comprises information that does not identify any particular User. Examples include: information about which of First Act's pages are visited on an aggregate level, browser type, operating system type, or IP address of a User.
First Act may collect other types of non-personally identifying information, e.g., age, date of birth, gender, hobbies, or other demographic information.
Use of Usage Information
Your Usage Information may be disclosed internally within First Act and to third parties working for us. For example, First Act may disclose Usage Information in order to better understand which parts of the Website Users are visiting, to improve the content of the Website, and for marketing, advertising, or research purposes.
Cookies and Log Files
The Website may place a text file called a "cookie" in the browser files of Your computer. Cookies can be used to provide You with tailored information from the Website. The cookie itself does not contain Registration Information. You can set Your browser to notify You when You receive a cookie, giving You the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. First Act also records information that Your web browser sends whenever You visit any website, such as Your Internet Protocol address.
The Website uses a variety of technical methods for tracking purposes, including web beacons. Web beacons are small pieces of data that are embedded in images on the pages of websites. We also use these technical methods to analyze the traffic patterns on the Website, such as the frequency with which our Users visit various parts of the Website. These technical methods may involve the transmission of information either directly to us or to another party authorized by us to collect information on our behalf. We may collect information from use of these technical methods in a form that is personally identifiable.
You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through the Website, in which case First Act may not be able to provide certain Services or features of the Website to You.
To protect Your privacy and security, We take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify Your identity before granting You profile access or making corrections. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of Your unique password and account information at all times.

Our Commitment To Data Security
First Act uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of Your personally identifiable information.

IF FIRST ACT LEARNS THAT IT HAS COLLECTED PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT A CHILD UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE, FIRST ACT WILL DELETE THAT INFORMATION AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.
