About Children’s Privacy

This is the place in cyberspace where fans of Ryan Seacrest can come to find out more about Ryan. In compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), we do not knowingly collect from children under age 13 personally identifiable information (information that would allow anyone to locate children under age 13 online or offline, such as full name, email address, home address, telephone number, etc.). Therefore, children under age 13 may not provide any personally identifiable information on this site. However, they can still enjoy our site by viewing the photo galleries, reading about Ryan and other performers, listening to music and participating in other activities that do not require the disclosure of personally identifiable information.

1. Collection of Personal Identifiable Information (“PII”)

1.1. General. RSP collects personal identifiable information (“PII”) such as your full name, email address, mailing address and telephone number only in order to create or enhance our relationship with you. When we collect PII, it is because you are voluntarily submitting this information to us in order to participate in activities such as sweepstakes, contests, games, surveys, forums, subscription registrations, chats or bulletin boards; make comments or suggestions; or request us to furnish you with products, services or information. Where possible, we try to indicate which fields of information are required and which are optional. You always have the option to not provide information by choosing not to use a particular service or feature. On those occasions when we obtain PII from a third party, we only use reputable sources of information.

1.2. Cookies. Cookies are data collection devices in the form of small files that RSP-operated internet sites place on your computer’s hard drive to assist us in providing our services to you.

a. Cookies remember information about your activities on our website and help RSP make your visits to our website more enjoyable. For example, cookies can: store a password for easy log-in during subsequent visits to the site; save your preferences for a personalized home page; or track items placed in a shopping cart. Importantly, the cookie itself does not contain PII and RSP does not combine cookies with PII. RSP may use cookies to relate your use of our website to PII obtained from you or a reputable third party. For example, if you request us to send you information about certain products or promotions, cookies and/or other information about your prior online activities and preferences may enable RSP to limit the materials we send you to only those items we know you will find interesting. However, if RSP wishes to coordinate your personal and website activity in this manner, we will obtain your express written consent.

RSP cooperates with law enforcement inquiries as well as other third parties to enforce laws such as intellectual property rights, in order to help protect you and the online community from bad actors. Therefore, in response to a verified request by law enforcement or other government officials relating to a criminal investigation or alleged illegal activity, we can (and you hereby authorize us to) disclose your name, city, state, telephone number, email address and online history without a subpoena. Without limiting the above, in an effort to respect your privacy and our ability to keep the online community free from bad actors, RSP will not otherwise disclose your personal information to law enforcement or other government officials without a subpoena, court order or substantially similar legal procedure, except if RSP believes in good faith that the disclosure of PII is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss or to report suspected illegal activity.

4.5. Due to the existing regulatory environment, we cannot guarantee that all of your PII will never be disclosed in ways not described in this Privacy Policy. By way of example, RSP may be forced to disclose personal information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances and third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Therefore, RSP does not promise, and you should not expect, that your PII will always remain private.
