The Events by Kaleidoscope Website shall not share personally identifiable information with other parties, except as described in the policy below.

“Aggregate information” is information that describes the habits, usage patterns, and demographics
of users as a group but does not describe or reveal the identity of any particular

“Individual information” is information about a user that is presented
in a form distinguishable from information relating to other users but not in
a form that personally identifies any user or enables the recipient to communicate
directly with any user unless agreed to by the user in advance of such communication.
This information may be used to improve The Events by Kaleidoscope Website’s products and online
sites, for internal marketing studies, or simply to collect demographic information
about The Events by Kaleidoscope Website’s users.

The Events by Kaleidoscope Website may use customer contact information provided by users to send information about The Events by Kaleidoscope Website, including news about product updates, contests, events, and other promotional
materials, but only if the users agree to receive such communications. Except
in the cases described below, The Events by Kaleidoscope Website will not share personally
identifiable information with any third party unless the user agrees to such disclosure
in advance. “Personally identifiable information” consists of a user’s name, email
address, physical address, or other data about the user that enables the recipient
to personally identify the user. While The Events by Kaleidoscope Website collects personally
identifiable information on a voluntary basis, for certain products and online
sites, The Events by Kaleidoscope Website’s collection of personally identifiable information
may be a requirement for access to the product or site. Personally identifiable
information will be processed and stored by The Events by Kaleidoscope Website in databases

services under contract with The Events by Kaleidoscope Website to access stored information
but such access shall only be to the extent necessary to provide those services.
In those instances, the third party will be bound by the terms of this privacy
policy. In some situations, personally identifiable information you input in connection
with Steam may be made available to other users of Steam. For example, during
registration of Steam, The Events by Kaleidoscope Website collects a user’s email address and
nickname, and at the user’s option, first and last name. Some of this information
is searchable and available to other users within Steam. The Events by Kaleidoscope Website
has no obligation to keep the privacy of personally identifiable information that
a user makes available to other users via Steam or other The Events by Kaleidoscope Website
software, such as in multiplayer or other public functions.

Personally identifiable information protected under this privacy policy and collected from
users may be done in conjunction with associates under agreement with The Events by Kaleidoscope Website. If an associate of The Events by Kaleidoscope Website is collecting such personally
identifiable information within one of our products or online sites, The Events by Kaleidoscope
Website will make users aware of this at the time the information is gathered.
For example, product registration data for Half-Life is collected by Sierra Entertainment.
If a user does not want to provide this information, the user may choose to opt
out of providing this information. Additionally, if providing the information
is a requirement of usage, the user may decline to use that particular service
or product. When possible, The Events by Kaleidoscope Website will make a reasonable effort
to direct users to the privacy polices of these associates. The Events by Kaleidoscope Website’s
