INFORMATION COLLECTION & TREATMENT
Information collected on www.scstatefair.org is used to determine important statistical data for the South Carolina State Fair (SCSF), its partners and members to determine the effectiveness of the content, programs and advertisements offered through our website.
The South Carolina State Fair, its partners and affiliates may collect personal contact and demographic information that the consumer willingly provides such as name, address, phone number, email, zip code, age, gender, and income with the intention of using this information for purposes of statistical reporting and targeted promotional campaigns.
Demographic information may be used to “personalize” the user’s experience on scstatefair.org and to provide targeted advertising. Contact information may be used to send promotional materials from the SCSF and/or its partners and affiliates. Users have the option of discontinuing the remittance of these by contacting us (please see “Opt-in/Opt-out”).
Registration areas on our site may require users to provide contact information such as an email address and demographic information such as zip code, age, or income level. The SCSF and/or its partners and members may use the information provided to send users relevant promotional materials.
Contact and demographic information provided with a consumer’s order via our online ticket order service is subject to usage outlined in “Information Collection”. All financial information provided by the consumer is completely private and unshared, and employed for the sole purpose of billing the consumer for products purchased from the store.
ONLINE SURVEY INFORMATION
To participate in online surveys, the user may be required to supply contact and/or demographic information. The South Carolina State Fair utilizes the information provided by the user to send that user any compensation promised in exchange for completing the survey and/or for purposes outlined in “Information Collection.”
