Privacy Policy

We at Broadway Licensing (“Broadway Licensing”) welcome you to our web site (the “Site”). Please review the following basic rules that govern the use of our Site (the “Agreement”). Please note that your use of our Site constitutes your agreement to follow and be bound by these rules and our policies.

Our privacy policy explains how we collect and use personal information you provide to us. Our security policy explains how you can review the security measures that have been put in place by our web host. Our terms of use govern your use of our site generally. Please read on to learn more about these policies and terms.
 
Privacy
 
We Keep Personal Information Private

When you license performance rights in a particular play, you authorize us to share with the playwright the personal information you have submitted. We do not share your personal information with any third parties other than the playwright whose play you seek to perform. By “personal information” we mean information that can be used by someone to identify or contact you, such as your name, e-mail address, or mailing address, and by “third parties” we mean anyone who is not directly involved in the processing of your online searches.

What Information Is Covered?

In browsing at our site, you may provide us with various personal information. For example, when you place order data on our server, you may provide your name, e-mail address, and/or mailing address. As another example, you may wish to send us e-mail with your personal comments regarding our Site.

We Limit Our Use Of Personal Information

We use personal information you provide to process your order forms and performance requests and for other purposes specific to your use of our Site.

In addition, unless you prefer that we not contact you in the future, we may use your e-mail address, for example, to notify you about new plays or new services offered through our site. If you would prefer not to receive these e-mails from us, you may send us an e-mail to such effect.

To measure our visitors’ interest in and use of various areas of Broadway Licensing, including any advertising, we will rely upon aggregate information — which is information that does not identify you. With this aggregate information, we may undertake statistical and other summary analyses of our visitors’ behavior and characteristics. Although we may share this aggregate information with third parties, please rest assured that no information we provide to third parties will allow anyone to identify you, or determine anything personal about you.

Individual Children’s Information

Notwithstanding the above, no personally-identifiable information (e.g. name, address, phone number) from users we understand to be children under the age of 18 will be shared with any third parties under any circumstances. Our Site will ensure that collection of information from children we know to be under the age of 13 will be conducted in accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998.

We Allow You To Update, Correct, Or Delete Your Personal Information

Upon your request, and to the extent your request does not compromise our privacy or security policies, we will update and correct personal information you have previously provided to us. In addition, if you request, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to remove your name and personal information from our database. Please understand, however, that it may be impossible to remove this information completely, due to backups and records of deletions. If you wish to update your information, you may do so by sending us an e-mail that identifies the information you wish to have updated. If you wish to remove your name from our database, simply send us an e-mail to so indicate your desire.

We Use “Cookies” Judiciously

Unless you have chosen to disable it, your Internet web browser has a feature called a “cookie.” Cookies are small text files that a web site can use to recognize repeat users, to facilitate the user’s ongoing access to and use of the site, and to compile aggregate data to improve the site and focus advertising. Cookies work as follows: a web site will send a cookie to your browser that uniquely associates your computer with information the site can store for you. Your browser places the cookie in its cookie file. When you next access that site on your computer, the site recognizes the cookie, and makes the stored information available to you.

We may use cookies to provide you with certain features at our site, such as helping us better understand and respond to our visitors’ interests and preferences. If you do not want us to use cookies to collect this information, most browsers allow you to disable the cookie feature. Please keep in mind, though, that cookies may be necessary to provide you with certain features at the site.

Just as with other information, we do not share with third parties any personal information provided through the use of cookies.

Third-party companies

We may use third-party advertising companies, such as Performics Inc., to serve or track ads on our web site and other web sites. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other web sites in order to measure advertising effectiveness and to provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you. To find out more about the use of cookies and the information-gathering practices and opt-out procedures of Performics, please click here: http://performics.com/our_company_files/privacy.htm

Exceptions

There are two exceptions to our privacy policy. First, we may release or use personal information in connection with legal proceedings, or in response to a subpoena or court order.

Second, our policy only applies to information you provide to us. You may provide third parties with information as part of dialogue you conduct in any “chat-room” we sponsor or on any of our message boards, as applicable, or if you click on third-party advertising at our site. We cannot be responsible for the conduct of these third parties. They may have policies concerning privacy and the use of cookies that differ substantially from ours, and you may receive unsolicited messages due to this conduct.

Your Consent

By using our web site, you consent to our collection and use of information, in accordance with this privacy policy. We may in the future decide to change our privacy policy. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post the changes on this page, so that you may always be aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and the circumstances under which we disclose it. Any changes in our privacy policy will only affect information you provide after the changed policy becomes effective.

Privacy Protection for Children

We have special privacy procedures in place where children under 13 are concerned, as provided in the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. Although our Site is not directed at children under 13, we recognize that certain features may appeal to a range of ages. We require parental consent, through a permission form (sent by regular mail or e-mail), before we ask for any personal information from visitors we know are under 13. In addition, even after a parent has given his or her permission, we allow parents to review, amend, or delete information their children may provide, and to prohibit further collection. Furthermore, unless personal information is necessary for an activity, we do not require that visitors provide such information in order to participate in the activity.

Security

Broadway Licensing’s server is provided by Verio (the “Host”). Please review the Host’s security policy to understand how your Personal Information will be stored. Although we trust that your Personal Information will remain secure on the Host’s server, we cannot take any responsibility in the event that your Personal Information is accessed by a third party through no fault of our own.
