Clusterfest is continually improving and adding new functionality and features to the Web Site and improving and adding to our existing products, services, and programs. Because of these ongoing changes, changes in the law, and the changing nature of technology, Clusterfest’s data practices will change from time to time. If and when our data practices change, Clusterfest will post the changes on the Web Site to notify you of the changes. We encourage you to check this page frequently. This policy was last updated on _____, 2019.
Other than cookies and/or click-stream data as described below, the only Personal Data Clusterfest currently collects through the Web Site is the information you voluntarily give us when you use our Web Site. For example, you may use this Web Site to contact Clusterfest with questions and comments. When you fill out a form on the Web Site, you may provide your name and other contact information, including your company’s name, your e-mail address, and your mailing address or the mailing address of your company or other Personal Data. If you do not wish to fill out all of the information on the form you are not required to do so. You are providing any and all such information voluntarily. Most of our registration forms require only your name and e-mail address. When you submit information to us through the Web Site, you will receive a confirmation e-mail if you enter a valid e-mail address. When you use our Web Site to search for information concerning Clusterfest, you are not providing us with any personal information. We offer the search features as a service to you.
If you order any information from our Web Site, buy any of our products or subscribe to any of the services offered on our Web Site, we will ask you to complete an order form that will request certain Personal Data from you, which may include financial information such as a credit card number and expiration date and general contact, billing and shipping information. We will use this information to complete the transaction that you have requested, i.e., to deliver the information, products or other services that you order, and to invoice you. Such information is collected and stored through encrypted means for your protection.
Clusterfest uses the Personal Data you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem. Clusterfest and our affiliates also use this information to help us improve the content and functionality of our Web Site, to better understand our customers and markets, and to improve our products and services.
We and our affiliates and promotional partners, including Viacom International Inc., may combine Personal Data collected through the Web Site with other information we collect from other sources, such as information collected at a physical location (such as a festival), and information received from marketing companies or Advertisers. We do this in order to enhance our ability to serve you, to tailor our content to you and to offer you opportunities to purchase products or services that we believe may be of interest to you.
One way in which we and our affiliates and promotional partners, including Viacom International Inc., deliver more meaningful advertisements is through a common form of online advertising known as “retargeting” or “remarketing.” Retargeting works by serving ads on one site based on an individual’s online activities on a different, unrelated site. To do this, we may use a device ID, cookie, or similar technology placed by us or our third-party vendor when you visit the Web Site or third party websites or apps. The placing of these cookies or other technologies on your device may enable you to be identified across multiple websites. You should consult the privacy policies of other websites that you visit to understand how they collect and use your data.
Clusterfest and our affiliates may use information collected through the Web Site to contact you in the future to tell you about products or services we believe will be of interest to you. If we do so, each communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to “unsubscribe” from receiving future communications. Similarly, we may provide “subscription” e-mail services, either directly or through affiliates, which enable you to receive current news and updates about Clusterfest. For all such services, we will provide an opportunity to “unsubscribe” from, or cancel, the subscription.
In addition to the information you provide when you use www.clusterfest.com, Clusterfest uses technology to collect anonymous information about the use of our Web Site. For example, we use technology to track how many visitors access our Web Site, the date and time of their visit, the length of their stay, and which pages they view. We also use technology to determine which web browsers our visitors use and the address from which they accessed our sites (for example, if they connected to the Web Site by clicking on a banner ad). This technology does not identify you personally. It simply enables the compilation of statistics about our visitors and their use of the Web Site. Clusterfest and our affiliates use this anonymous data and share it with third parties to improve the content and functionality of our Web Site, to better understand customers and markets, and to improve products and services.
We and our partners, including Viacom International, Inc., use various technologies to collect and store information when you visit the Web Site, and this may include using cookies or similar technologies to identify your browser or device.

Many improvements and updates to the Web Site are based on data obtained from cookies.
Accepting cookies allows you, among other things, to personalize your experience on the Web Site. Cookies may also allow the Web Site to present to you advertising which may be of interest to you.
Small graphic images or other web programming code called web beacons (also known as “1×1 GIFs,” “one pixel GIFs,” or “clear GIFs”) may be included in our web pages and e-mail messages. Web beacons may be invisible to you, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a web page or e-mail can act as a web beacon. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to the Web Site, to monitor how users navigate the Web Site, to make cookies more effective, to count how many e-mails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many particular links were actually viewed.
There may be a collection of IP addresses and/or click-stream data for purposes of system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers and sponsors. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. Our computers identify your computer by its IP address. When you request Web pages from the Web Site, our computers log your IP address. Click-stream data is information collected by our computers when you request Web pages from the Web Site.
Click-stream data may include such information as the page served, the time, the source of the request, the type of browser making the request, the preceding page view and other such non-personal information. When analyzed, this data helps us analyze how visitors arrive at the Web Site, what type of content is most popular, what type of visitors in the aggregate are interested in particular kinds of content and advertising, and the like.
Information we collect may be accessed by a variety of parties, depending upon the project for which the information was originally collected, the terms of that engagement, and the policies into or out of which the consumer has opted.
From time to time, we and our affiliates and promotional partners, including Viacom International Inc., may send you offers based on the information you have provided us.
It is possible for you to use much of our Web Site without giving us any Personal Data. When you do register with us or give us Personal Data, you will have an opportunity at the time we collect your information to limit e-mail communications from Clusterfest and from our third-party partners. You can request at any time that Clusterfest not send future e-mail to you by unsubscribing from communications as described above.
If you prefer to not receive targeted advertising (advertising based on your interests or your online activity), you can opt-out of some network advertising programs that use your information. Below are the steps you can take to opt-out of targeted advertising:
You may opt out of online behavioral advertising done by Viacom International, Inc. by visiting their AdChoices Disclosure: http://srp.viacom.com/sitefaq.html.
You can visit the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) Opt-Out Page (http://www.aboutads.info/choices). The DAA Opt-Out Page provides a tool that identifies its member companies that have Cookies on your browser and provides links to those companies.
If you are using one of our mobile applications, you can download App Choices (http://youradchoices.com/appchoices), which will allow you to opt-out of in-app tracking. You can also adjust the privacy settings on your mobile device by visiting the settings tab. If you wish to opt-out of cross-device tracking, you will need to opt-out of in app tracking on all of your devices.
You can update the privacy settings in the Help section of your browser, or in the Settings tab on your mobile device.
You may also click on the Ad Choices icon in the advertisement.
You may opt out of additional third party advertising networks by going to the Network Advertising Initiative’s Website (http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp) and following the directions provided.
Additionally, many network advertising programs allow you to view and manage the interest categories they have compiled from your online browsing activities. These interest categories help determine the types of targeted advertisements you may receive.
Please note that even if you choose to remove your information or “opt-out,” you will still see advertisements while you are browsing online; however, those advertisements will no longer be tailored to your interests. Additionally, information regarding your usage of the Web Site may still be collected for research, analytics or internal operations purposes. We are not responsible for the effectiveness of any such opt-out options.
