What Information We Collect and For What Purposes
To most effectively offer our services, we may collect information from you in the following ways:
- Information You Provide to Register for Services. If you wish to register for the Hollywood.com newsletter or to participate in a contest or giveaway, we request you to provide your email address and zip code (or foreign postal area). You may also include any additional information in a space provided. You are not required to provide this information, but then you may not receive the services.

Our servers automatically log certain basic technical information when a user accesses the website, which may include your Internet Protocol (IP) address, your browser's request to the Hollywood.com server, the date and time of the request, the language and type of browser you use, the referring web page, your computer's operating system, and any Hollywood.com cookies associated with your browser.
- Communications From You to Us. If you send correspondence or email to us or otherwise communicate with us, we may retain copies of the communications to assist you or for our records.

We may run contests on our sites in which we ask visitors for contact information (such as their name and email address) and demographic information (such as their zip code or foreign postal area). The user's contact information is used to contact the user when necessary, such as if they win a contest or to notify users of upcoming contests.
