Information We Gather

Here are the types of information we gather:

Information You Give Us

We receive and store any information you enter on this Site or give us in any other way. While you are not required to give us any personally identifiable information to access this Site, in order for you to access certain specialized services, including but not limited to our free ticket giveaways and eKEY, you may be required to provide us with certain personally identifiable information. “Personally identifiable information” or “personal information” refers to any information that identifies or can be used to contact or locate you such as name, mailing address, phone number, and email address. However, you always have the option not to provide personal information by choosing not to use a particular feature of this Site.

Automatic Information

Examples of the information we collect automatically include the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet and computer and connection information such as browser type, version, and time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system, and platform. Information collected automatically does not personally identify you but we may use it to track usage of the Site and to improve your experience on the Site.

How Information is Collected

We may collect information from you in several different areas on the Site, including but not limited to those described below:

Contests or Sweepstakes

We periodically operate contests and sweepstakes through the Website that will require registration or the submission of personal information. Your personally identifiable information may be used to contact you for winner notification, prize delivery confirmation or other related purposes (see the rules of each contest for details about how your personal information will be used, including postings to the Website).

Cookies

Like many websites, this Site uses “cookies,” which are small data files that are transferred to your computer when you allow your browser to accept cookies. Cookies automatically identify your web browser to this Site whenever you visit, and make using this Site easier for you by saving your passwords and preferences. By tracking how and when you use this Site, cookies help ADAGP to determine which areas of this Site are popular and which are not. We may use the data we collect from cookies to improve your experience on the site. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, you generally can opt out of providing this information by turning the cookies off in your browser.

IP Addresses and Other Automatic Information

An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web. Web servers identify your computer by its IP address. We may collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our advertisers, and to audit the use of this Site. When you request a page from this Site, our servers log your IP addresses. As mentioned above, other information, including, without limitation, browser and time zone is also collected.

Information Collected by Our Third Party Vendors

If you purchase tickets to the Philadelphia Auto Show or Black Tie Tailgate, or any other products or services offered or planned to be offered through this Site, you will be directed to a third-party vendor who may require you to provide personally identifiable information to complete the purchase. That third-party vendor will ask you to complete an order form that will request certain information from you, such as a credit card number and expiration date and general contact, billing and mailing information. They will use this information to complete the transaction that you have requested. If you visit a website that is linked to our Site to purchase products or services, or for any other reason, you should consult that site’s privacy policy before providing any personal information.

How Information is Used

We use personally identifiable information about visitors to this Site to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyze Site usage, and to improve our content. We may also use information about your product preferences and interests in order to improve our site design and enhance your experience. We believe these uses allow us to improve this Site and to better serve you. You should also be aware that we may disclose specific information about you if required to do so by law, governmental request, process or court order or based on our good faith belief that it is necessary to conform or comply with such law, request or court order or to protect the users of our websites or the public. ADAGP does not share any information with third-party service providers, advertisers, exhibitors or others without your permission, but if you make a purchase through this Site you will be directed to a third-party vendor site and that vendor will ask you for personally identifiable information. You should carefully review the privacy policy of the third-party vendor to understand how they will collect and use your personal information.

Storage of Information

We store information using reasonable security procedures to help protect against loss, misuse, and unauthorized access to the information you provide to us. When you enter personally identifiable information, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). Please note that no data transmission or storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us and cannot be responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your information. We will retain your information for up to ninety (90) days after the Event or as needed to provide you the services related to your Auto Show experience, and as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements, after which time, your information is deleted.

Sharing of Information

With your prior permission, we may share your information with select business partners so that they can provide you with special offers, promotional materials, and other materials that may be of interest to you. For example, you may be presented with an opportunity to have certain information shared with our third party business partners when you enter a contest or sweepstakes or elect to receive marketing offers or other information. If you do not elect to have your information shared, it will not be shared with such third parties. We take measures to help ensure that our partners protect the confidentiality, integrity, and security of any information we share with them. However, we are not responsible for the privacy practices of our business partners, which may use your information for their own purposes.
