Phillips occasionally collects and stores personal user information in connection with promotions. Whenever information of that kind is collected, Phillips checks the ages of all website visitors before accepting information from them. No information is collected from guests under the age of 21.
From time to time, Phillips requests personal information such as your name, email address, and date of birth. For example, we may request personal information when you register to enter a promotion such as a sweepstakes or contest. Whenever Phillips collects and stores such personal user information, the information you provide will not be disclosed to third parties without your consent; however, Phillips may share aggregate information about our visitors (for example, what pages on our websites are visited) with advertisers, business partners, sponsors, and other third parties in order to customize the content of our websites to deliver a better experience for our visitors.
Personal or aggregate information is never sold to third parties by Phillips. Whether Phillips collects personal information for complying with your requests or in connection with your participation in a promotion or for purposes of verifying your compliance with Phillips policies and federal, state, and local laws, and/or for editorial and feedback solicitation purposes, we will collect only such information as is necessary for those purposes and nothing more. Phillips may disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) Phillips’ rights or property, other Phillips users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. Phillips may also disclose user information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
