The Internet is a fun place for work and for play. However, in order for you to get the best possible use from our sites it may be necessary, in some circumstances, for you to give us personal information about yourself. This policy tells you how we collect information from you, how we protect it and how we use it. We want to help make the Internet a safe and fun experience for you, your friends and your family.
Disneylandparis.com is owned, controlled and run by Euro Disney Associés S.C.A, a company incorporated under the laws of France and having its registered offices at Immeubles Administratifs - Route Nationale 34 77700 Chessy Montévrain and registered with the Commercial Register of Meaux under the number 397 471 822 ("Disney"). It is Disney's policy that we obey and respect the law in relation to privacy and protect our guests' personal information from possible misuse. We also allow you access to your personal information so that you can amend or delete the information we have about you or ask us to do it for you.
What type of information we collect about you
We collect two 'types' or categories of information about you:
1. The first type is information that personally identifies you. For example, your full name (your first name and your surname), your home (or work) address, your e-mail address, telephone number and postcode. We call this 'personally identifiable' information.
2. Other information you give us, by itself, is NOT personally identifiable. For example, whether you are male or female, the times and dates you use are services, the country in which you live, the language you normally speak in, the number of children you have... We call this 'non-personally identifiable information' or 'aggregate' information.
What we do with 'Aggregate' information
Aggregate information allows us to see what 'types' of people use our site (for example, how many are girls and how many are boys). From time to time we may also run on-line surveys or questionnaires to collect your thoughts, opinions or suggestions as to how we can make our sites, products or services better for you. We may also share aggregate information with our advertisers, business partners, sponsors and third parties, so that they can better understand what type of person uses our sites.
Remember, this information is NOT personally identifiable information from which you can be identified.
What we do with Personally Identifiable information
We will only collect personally identifiable information during the following:
1. When you register to enter into our on-line competitions
2. When you register for on-line 'clubs' that will give you special benefits like exclusive content, access to other competitions and other on-line activities
3. When you book online
4. When you order a brochure
5. When you register for news
6. When you answer to surveys
This information is then used (i) to inform winners of a competition what prizes they have won, (ii) to fulfill your requests for certain products and services, or (iii) depending on your prior consent collected on-line, for promotional and marketing purposes, i.e. to inform you of exciting events happening in the world of Disney, to send you special offers etc...
This personal information is ONLY used by Disney, carefully selected third parties and the Walt Disney Company group of companies and is NEVER shared with other third parties, unless otherwise clearly stated at the time of collection or registration. Even then, it would only be shared when we have your permission to do so.
When we post information about you on our sites, (for example, if you are a competition winner), we will never disclose personally identifiable information that could let other people know where you live or exactly who you are.
Our Legal Obligation to Disclose Personal Information we hold about you
Unless we have your express consent, we will not disclose, sell, rent or trade your personally identifiable information to anyone but permitted third parties, such as carefully selected third parties and the Walt Disney Company group of companies.
The only time we will ever disclose personal information about you without your prior consent is where we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, get into contact with or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) Disney's rights or property, or anyone else who could be harmed by those activities. We may disclose member information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
Disney may also transfer information about you if Disney acquires, or is acquired by, merged, consolidated or reorganized into or with another company.
