1. COLLECTION OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
In order to use certain services provided on the Site, such as our site surveys and our customer relationship program (collectively the “Site Services”), or participate in contests or promotions, you will be required to register with us. In order to register, you will be required to provide certain personally identifiable information, such as your first and last name, postal address, and email address, and possibly volunteer certain other information, such as your birth date, gender, marital status, number of children and some personal preferences, on a page that will request such information (“Registration Profile Page”). If you are unwilling to disclose the required information in connection with your registration, you will still be able to access those portions of the Site available to non-registered users of the Site.
You must be 13 or older to register with the site. The United States Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act went into effect on April 21st, 2000. In order to comply with that law, the mall will not knowingly process any data that was submitted to us by a visitor who is under 13 years of age. Please visit http://www.ftc.gov/kidzprivacy for information from the Federal Trade Commission about protecting children’s online privacy.
By completing the Registration Profile Page you have indicated that you are interested in receiving information on special offers and promotions, and we may send you such information by email or regular mail. In addition, we may share user information with affiliate businesses and third parties that we believe are reputable to offer products and services that may be of interest to you.
If you also registered to participate in additional surveys, you may also receive surveys on a variety of topics sent to you via e-mail or direct mail.
Even after you have become a registered user, you may later choose not to receive such information from us by sending an email to TheClub@ggp.com. If you Opt Out, you will no longer receive such special offers and information from us, and will not be able to participate in contests or promotions. This Privacy Statement does not, however, apply to other Internet websites that are not under our control (“Third-Party Websites”), or to other third parties; you should contact such entities directly regarding their use of your information.
2. PROTECTION OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
We do not make available to the general public any personally identifiable information you provide to us in connection with your registration on the Site.
