Your Personal Information
When you come to the Pitch A Fete website, we log your current internet address (this is usually a temporary address assigned by your Internet service provider when you log in), the type of operating system you are using, and the type of browser software used. In addition, we may keep track of what portions of the website you are visiting. We aggregate this information to help us create a better experience for users of our website. For example: we may upgrade those parts of the website that are heavily visited or optimize the website to work more efficiently with certain operating systems. This is all done without our knowing your name or other personal identifying information. When you visit the Pitch A Fete website you are anonymous, unless you chose to identify yourself to us. You are not required to provide us with personal information to use our website, unless expressly stated. For example, certain features may require you to submit some personal information in order for those features to function as designed. Such information might include, but not limited to, name, address, email address, phone number and credit card or other payment information. Certain parts of our website may require you to provide identifying information and use individual passwords in order to access personal information. If you do choose to provide us with personal information, you can be assured that such information is kept in secured databases. Pitch A Fete treats this information as confidential. Pitch A Fete will use the information you provide solely to satisfy your requests for information regarding Pitch A Fete. We do not sell, rent, or exchange any of the personal information collected on our website.
Cookies and Web Bugs
A cookie is a small piece of information that a website sends to your computer, which is stored in a file on your hard drive. The next time you visit our website, we may use the information stored in your cookie file to facilitate your use of our website. For example, we may use your cookie file to store a password so that you do not have to input it every time you move to a different section of a password protected portion of our website. A cookie does not tell us your individual identity unless you have chosen to provide it to us. Most cookies expire after a defined period of time, or you can delete your cookie file at any time you choose. In addition, you can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie so that you can decide whether to accept or reject it. A web bug (or web beacon) is a tiny graphical image that is typically on a web page. Somewhat like a cookie, a web bug can tell us information such as what kind of browser is being used and what time of day this page was accessed. Some web bugs can include information such as your IP address. Some technologies will notify you of the presence of web bugs, but browsers typically do not notify you of them. We do not use web bugs to collect personal information about you. However, we may use them to capture statistical usage information for our Websites. We may correlate this information to a user to personalize user experience and for statistical analysis of user experiences on the Websites.
Pitch A Fete uses no encryption (data scrambling) on certain portions of our website, and up to 128-bit encryption on other portions. When you are on any website that asks you for confidential information (your social security number or a bank or credit card account number, for example), you should check to see if the information being transmitted is encrypted in order to increase the security of your information. If you need to send confidential information and are concerned about the security of a website, then you should consider sending it by phone or by regular mail instead.

Personally identifiable information that we may collect in such instances may include your IP address, full user name, password, email address, city, time zone, telephone number, and other information that you decide to provide us with, or that you decide to include in your public profile.

In addition, we may use your contact information to market to you, and provide you with information about, our products and services. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such information or communications from us, please contact us and advise of your desire to unsubscribe from further communications.
Third Party Services
We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to us, including, without limitation, hosting and maintenance, customer relationship, database storage and management, and direct marketing campaigns. We may share your personally identifiable information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these functions and provide such services, and only pursuant to binding contractual obligations requiring such third parties to maintain the privacy and security of your data.
We cooperate with government and law enforcement officials or private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We may disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims, legal process (including subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of Company or a third party, the safety of the public, or any person, to prevent or stop any illegal, unethical, or legally actionable activity, or to comply with the law.
Pitch A Fete makes no active effort to collect personal information from children under the age of 18. We believe that children who do wish to submit information to Pitch A Fete should have permission from their parent or legal guardian.
