- What information does StageSource collect from you?

We retain Personally Identifiable Information as long as it is necessary to carry out services for you. Our primary goal in collecting information from you is to provide you with a smooth and efficient experience while using our Site.
Personally Identifiable Information: Personally Identifiable Information refers to information that lets a site know the specifics of who you are, such as your name, address, telephone number, and email address. Generally, our Site does not collect Personally Identifiable Information, unless volunteered by the consumer‚ such as profile information and/or site registrations.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information: Non-Personally Identifiable Information refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. We gather certain information about you based upon the pages that you access in our Site. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Web site's Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web. An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (“TCP/IP”) network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination.

Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop.
