INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT THROUGH THE SITE
Information You Provide to the Site
Where we ask you for Personal Information, we will tell you if it is optional. Otherwise, we are asking because it is necessary in order for us to provide you with the information or fulfill the transaction you requested.
The Site is intended for persons age sixteen (16) and older. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children younger than the age of sixteen (16), and we will delete any personal information later determined to be collected from a user younger than age sixteen (16).
Community Forums, User Content, and Posting Content to Third–Party Sites
The Site may provide you the opportunity to participate and post content publicly in forums, through interactive features and through other communication functionality (“Community Forums”). You may choose, through such features or otherwise, to submit or post photographs, videos, questions, comments, suggestions or other content (collectively, “User Content”). Please note that certain information, such as your name and state of residence, may be publicly displayed on the Site along with your User Content.
You acknowledge that if you choose to post any information publicly (such as on a third-party platform, in Social Media or in Community Forums) about your purchase, the content on the Site or your viewing history, the Video Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (18 U.S.C. § 2710) (the “VPPA”) (or any similar law) does not apply.

Information Third Parties Provide About You and Social Media Interactions
We may receive information about you from third parties. For example, if you are on another website and you agree to receive information from MGM, that website will forward your information to us so that we may contact you. We also may supplement the information we collect with outside records from third parties, such as public databases, publicly available Social Media pages or joint marketing partners, for various purposes, such as to provide you with information, services or products, to tailor our content and the offers we show you, or to enhance our products and services.
Information We Collect Automatically As You Access and Use the Site
In addition to any Personal Information or other information you choose to submit to the Site, we, and our third–party service providers (including without limitation any third–party advertisers and content or analytics providers), may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect certain website usage information whenever you visit or interact with the Site (“Site Usage Information”). This Site Usage Information may include the browser and operating system you are using, the URL or advertisement that referred you to our Site, the search terms you entered into a search engine that led you to our Site (if applicable), all of the areas within our Site that you visit and the time of day, among other information. We may use this Site Usage Information for a variety of purposes, including without limitation enhancing or otherwise improving the Site. Site Usage Information is generally non-identifying, but it may contain Personal Information and if we associate it with your Personal Information, we treat it as Personal Information. As you use the Site, we will also track the videos you watch (including without limitation which videos, how often you view the videos, and where you may pause or stop watching).
In addition, we automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifier (“Device Identifier”) for your computer, mobile phone, or other device (any, a “Device”) used to access the Site. We may be able to collect or infer your approximate location through information we collect, such as an IP address. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device used to access the Site, and our servers identify your Device by its Device Identifier.
We may directly collect specific location information from your Device if you have opted-in to such collection through one of our mobile applications. You may be able to turn off the collection of location information through your Device settings. However, please note that we may still be able to collect or infer your approximate location through other information we collect, such as IP address. In addition, some mobile service providers may also provide us or our third-party service providers with information regarding the physical location of the Device used to access the Site.
The methods used to collect Site Usage Information may include, without limitation, the following:
Cookies & Local Storage. A cookie is a data file placed on a Device when it is used to visit the Site or otherwise access our online content. Certain web browsers and certain browser add-ons, such as Adobe Flash, may provide additional local data storage mechanisms that are used in a manner similar to cookies, and some of the content included on our Site may make use of this local storage. For example, a Flash cookie is a data file placed on a Device via the Adobe Flash plugin that may be built-in to or downloaded by you to your Device. For more information about Flash and the privacy choices Adobe offers, visit http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager.html. Cookies, Flash cookies, and other local storage devices may be used for a variety of purposes (e.g., to identify your Device when you revisit our Site, to recall your authentication information, to store information related to your navigation throughout our Site, or to enable certain features on our Site).
Web Beacons. Small graphic images or other web programming code called web beacons (also known as “pixels,” “1×1 GIFs” or “clear GIFs”) may be included in our web pages and email messages. Web beacons may be invisible to you, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a web page or email 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 Site, to monitor how users navigate the Site, to count how many emails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed.
Embedded Scripts. An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Site, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your Device from our web server or a third–party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Site, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
In addition, we may use a variety of other technologies that collect similar information for security and fraud detection purposes.

HOW AND WHEN WE DISCLOSE INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES
Third Parties Providing Services on Our Behalf. We sometimes use other businesses to perform services for us, such as website hosting, conducting website usage analysis, sending email or other communications, fulfilling orders, providing marketing assistance and data analysis, processing payments (including without limitation clearing and processing credit card payments), or performing other services. We may provide access to your Personal Information to such service providers in order for them to complete a requested transaction or otherwise to perform these services.
Sweepstakes, Contests and Promotions. We may offer sweepstakes, contests or other promotions (any, a “Promotion”), that may require registration. By participating in a Promotion, you are agreeing to the provisions, conditions, or official rules that govern that Promotion, which may contain specific requirements of you (including, without limitation and except where prohibited by law, allowing the sponsor(s) of the Promotion to use your name, voice, likeness or other indicia of persona in advertising or marketing materials). If you choose to enter a Promotion, Personal Information may be disclosed to third parties or the public in connection with the administration of such Promotion, including, without limitation, in connection with winner selection, prize fulfillment, as required by law or permitted by the Promotion’s terms or official rules (such as on a winners list).
Business Transfers. In the event that MGM goes through a transition such as being sold, has all or a portion of its assets acquired or transferred, whether voluntary or involuntary (such as through bankruptcy), or merges or becomes affiliated with any other division, individual or entity (including, without limitation, during the course of any due diligence process), any customer information owned or under the control of MGM (including without limitation your Personal Information) will likely be one of the transferred assets. We reserve the right, as part of this type of transaction, to assign or otherwise transfer your information (including without limitation Personal Information) and other information we have collected from users of the Site. By providing your Personal Information, you agree that we may transfer such information to the acquiring entity without your further consent.
THIRD–PARTY ADVERTISING COMPANIES AND ANALYTICS SERVICES
MGM may work with network advertisers, ad agencies, analytics service providers, and other vendors to serve third–party advertisements on the Site; to serve our advertisements elsewhere online; and to provide us with information regarding use of and traffic on the Site (including without limitation the pages viewed and the actions users take when visiting the Site) and the effectiveness of our advertisements. For example, if you click on an advertisement for MGM, our service provider(s) may be able to tell us the advertisement you clicked on and where you were viewing the advertisement; likewise, if you click on an advertisement you see on our Site, our service provider(s) may be able to tell which page you were visiting on our Site and pass that information to the advertiser. The advertisements you see may be served by one or more third parties, who may use information about your activities on the Site, and other websites and services you visit, across the various devices you use, to provide you targeted advertising based upon your interests. Our service providers may collect certain information about your visits to and activity on the Site and other websites and services and may use this information to target advertising to you.
These service providers may set and access their own tracking technologies on your Device (including without limitation cookies and web beacons) and may otherwise collect or have access to information about you (such as your Site Usage Information and Device Identifier). Some of these parties may collect Personal Information over time when you visit the Site or other online websites and services. Cookies and web beacons, including without limitation those set by third–party network advertisers, may be used to (among other things): target advertisements, prevent you from seeing the same advertisements too many times, and conduct research regarding the usefulness of certain advertisements to you. We may share certain information such as Device Identifiers, Site Usage Information and de-identified information with third–party advertising companies, analytics providers and other vendors for advertising and analytics purposes.
We use a variety of service providers to perform advertising and analytics services, and some of these companies may be members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) or Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”). You may wish to visit http://optout.networkadvertising.org/#/, which provides information regarding targeted advertising and the opt-out procedures of NAI members. You may also want to visit http://optout.aboutads.info/#/, which provides information regarding targeted advertising and offers an opt-out for participating companies.
For mobile apps, you may be able to limit certain advertising practices using the settings on your phone, tablet or other mobile device. You may download the AppChoices app from your app store (see links at http://www.aboutads.info/appchoices) to opt out of the delivery of interest-based ads in mobile apps.
Please note opting out through these mechanisms does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive non-targeted ads while online or on your Device.
HOW WE RESPOND TO “DO NOT TRACK” SIGNALS
Some Internet browsers may be configured to send “Do Not Track” signals to the online services that you visit. There is no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this context. Like many websites and online services, the Site does not alter its practices when it receives a “Do Not Track” signal from a visitor’s browser.
