Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting ToonamiAsia.com. Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, and to help ensure a rewarding online experience, we provide this Privacy Policy outlining and clarifying how we collect and use information online. This Privacy Policy, where posted, applies to our information practices on this website (the “Site”). Turner Broadcasting System Asia Pacific, Inc. (“Turner”) is fully committed to providing a fun, entertaining and safe Sites for people of all ages. Because we want our audience to feel comfortable exploring the content offered on this website, and because many of our Site users are children, we take care that the content of the Site is suitable for children and that we take appropriate measures to help children protect their privacy online. We do not ask children to disclose more personal information than is necessary for them to participate in a particular activity, and we take steps to prevent children from posting contact information. As new technology and online standards evolve, we may modify these policies to better address your concerns.

I. The Information We Collect

Our Sites

Turner ("we" or "us") does not collect any personally identifiable information from its visitors without the person being aware that they are providing the information. Instead, personal information, such as names and e-mail addresses, is obtained only during the registration process and when Site users fill out contest entry forms, contact us via e-mail or otherwise voluntarily provide this information to us. For some activities, such as online polls or surveys, we may ask visitors to provide information that is not personally identifiable. This might include first name only, city or state of residence, age, gender, or a favourite cartoon character. We may use or disclose personal information if we reasonably believe that the use or disclosure is necessary to prevent improper conduct or a breach of law, or if its use or disclosure is required or authorised by law, or in response to a law enforcement agency's or other public agency's (including schools or children services) request or if we feel that such disclosure may prevent the instigation of a crime. Finally, we may disclose information to a prospective purchaser of our company (or its assets), to the extent permitted by law. In all other circumstances, we will use personally identifiable information only for the purpose for which it is provided. Under no circumstances will we sell or otherwise disclose personal information to any third party. We make all reasonable efforts to give notice via e-mail to parents or guardians of children under the age of 14 when we collect information (e-mail addresses or any other information) from their child. For Site users over 14 years of age, we may collect information, with your permission, that will be used to improve your experience on the Site (e.g., online surveys). You may ask us at any time to let you know what personal information we have collected from you or your child (aged under 14 years). On your request, we will amend any such information we are holding that is incorrect or delete such information. We may transfer personal information and store it outside of the jurisdiction in which a Site user is located and, although such personal information will be protected by the security measures described in this privacy policy, it will be also be subject to local laws. We will not use or transfer personally identifiable information in ways that are materially different from the ones described above without also providing notice to our Site users (and/or their parents/guardians). We have systems and procedures in place to safeguard, and help prevent unauthorised access to or use of, the information we collect online and to maintain data security.

II. How We Use The Information

We strive to create imaginative online contests and promotions. We do this because, well, it's fun. By registering on the Site to enter a contest, you acknowledge that we will conduct these contests and promotions and, if applicable, your parent or guardian acknowledges that you will be entitled to participate in such contests or promotions. For such entry to sweepstakes and contests, we may ask visitors to provide a first name or a nickname and e-mail address. Sometimes we may also require a Site user to provide us additional information that is not personally identifiable. For example, we might ask you to tell us your favourite character or answer a trivia question. Once a contest winner has been selected, that person will be contacted via the winner's e-mail address given at the time of entry. If the e-mail address has changed or been deleted or is no longer operational, the entry will become void. We will not be held responsible for invalid e-mail addresses. Winners may also be required to return a completed prize acceptance form contained in the notification email within a designated time period (along with the signature of a parent or legal guardian for all minors). We do not keep any personal information we obtain through a contest or sweepstakes after we have successfully selected a winner(s), awarded the prize(s), and administered the contest or sweepstakes. We never sell, rent, or otherwise share our visitors' personal information with third parties without appropriate notice and consent. Sometimes, we use agents or contractors to provide services to our visitors, such as helping us conduct a sweepstakes, sending prizes to winners, or providing customer service related to activities on the Sites. In these cases, we require the agent or contractor to keep the information confidential and to use it only for the specific services they are performing. We may on occasion combine information we collect through our Sites with information that we collect from other sources. We sometimes use non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our Sites, and to improve our visitors' experience on the Sites. We also may aggregate, use and share this information with third parties to analyze Site usage, as well as to offer products, programs, or services. We may disclose personally identifiable information in response to a legal process, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We also may use and disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency's request, or where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our terms of use, to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing our Sites and applicable laws, or as otherwise required or permitted by law or consistent with legal requirements. In addition, we may transfer personally identifiable information about you if we or one of our business units are acquired by, sold to, or merged with another entity. We will not use or transfer personally identifiable information in ways that are materially different from the ones described above without also providing parental notification of such practices and obtaining consent for any materially different uses.

III. Voluntary Submissions Via E-mail

We enjoy interacting with our audience. Therefore, there will be opportunities for Site users to contact us online. In these areas, an e-mail address will be collected and, in some cases, you may receive a response. Under no circumstances will your e-mail address be provided to any third parties.

IV. Cookies: the Non-Edible Kind

Cookies are tiny pieces of information that your browser stores on your computer, such as what browser you're using or what operating system you use. We use cookies to help make your experience better and understand how well we're doing. We only use cookies so that we know how many visitors we have and how often they visit: that's the best way to know if you like what we're doing. Under no circumstances do we use cookies to collect or cross-relate personal information about you. We, our third party service providers and/or our partners also may use cookies to manage and measure the performance of advertisements displayed on or delivered by or through the Sites.

Sometimes these third party Web sites might conduct contests or sweepstakes that are promoted on our Sites.

Additionally, we and our advertisers may use third parties to serve or present the ads that appear on our Site and to conduct research about the advertisements. These third parties may view, edit or set their own cookies. We, our third party service providers and/or partners may also place cookies, web beacons, clear .gifs or similar technologies and collect data to help present such advertisements on our Sites, and to help measure and research the advertisements' effectiveness.

In particular, the information provided will likely be transferred to and processed in the United States, United Kingdom or Hong Kong where many of our central databases operate.
