GENERAL AUDIENCE WEB SITE
The Site is a general audience web site, and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children younger than 13 years of age (“Child” or “Children”). However, we know that certain web pages, such as those promoting a G-rated movie, may attract Children. On those web pages, we may request and utilize an e-mail address or other online contact information, which may include the online contact information of a Child, for one-time use of that information. For example, we may collect email addresses to allow visitors to receive a fun automated reply from a motion picture’s character. After the online contact information is used once in connection with the specific purpose for which it was collected, we delete the online contact information from our records and do not keep it or use it to re-contact the visitor. Additionally, if we are notified that a Child has submitted Personal Information to us through our Site we will delete that Child's Personal Information. If submitted for one time use, we will delete the Child’s Personal Information after the requested use is completed.
