The platform, web-portal and/or service (the “Service”) is owned and operated by Shimon Presents, Inc. (“Shimon”). We recognize the importance of privacy to you and are firmly committed to protecting your privacy when you user the Service. As a result, we have instituted this website privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”), which applies only to the operation of the Service. Shimon is providing this notice to explain how we collect, use, disclose and protect the personal information that we collect from you in connection with your use of the Service. This Privacy Policy applies only to the use and collection of data collected by this Service and does not apply to any other data collected by us online or offline.
In general, you may use the Service and view its content while remaining anonymous by not providing any personal information. By using the Service, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy and, if you provide us your personal information, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your information as described in this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with this policy, please do not provide us any information and do not use the Service.
As used in this Privacy Policy, “we” includes Shimon, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, and any third-party vendors we hire to assist in the administration of the Service, the collection, cataloging and/or analysis of data, and/or the processing or handling of any user transactions.
