Privacy Policy

This privacy policy discloses how we collect, protect, use and share information gathered about you on our web site.

Collected Information

Most of our content may be viewed without providing any personally identifiable information. The exceptions are the Client Extranet and the four Contact forms. For these activities the collection of personally identifiable information is necessary. There may be others such as entering a contest or sweepstakes as well.

When personally identifiable information is collected, you will know because you will have to fill out a form. Information collected in the forms can vary, but will typically consist of your name, address, phone number and email address. Additional information about your organization may also be collected.

Our site collects some information about you using technology, so it may not be readily apparent to you that it is being collected. For instance, when you come to our site your IP address is collected so that we know where to send information you are requesting. An IP address is often associated with the place from which you enter the Internet like your ISP (Internet service provider), your company, or your university. This information is not personally identifiable. We normally do not combine this type of information with personally identifiable information.

However, we will combine this information with personally identifiable information to identify a visitor in order to enforce compliance with our house rules or terms of service or to protect our service, site, users, or others.


Cookies are pieces of information that a site sends to your computer while you are viewing the site. These pieces of information allow the site to remember important information that will make your use of that site more useful.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you would not have access to much of the forum features — and some of the features will not function properly.

Information Use

Our site uses personally identifiable information in a limited number of ways. We use the information to complete transactions related to your requesting information and materials from us. We will also use information collected to notify you if you have won a game or contest. We may also use the information you provide to send you Greensboro events, news and related items.

Information Sharing

We do not share or sell collected information about you to anyone else except for security or legal reasons. We will give out personal information as required by law, for example, to comply with a court order or subpoena; to enforce our Terms of Service, or site or game rules; or to protect the safety and security of users and our site.


The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our users is of utmost concern to us. The Greensboro Area Convention and Visitors Bureau takes technical, contractual, administrative and physical security steps to protect all visitors’ information. There are some things that you can do to help protect the security of your information as well. For instance, never distribute your password (if applicable), since this is what is used to access all of your account information. Also remember to sign out of your account and close your browser window when you finish surfing the Web, so that other people using the same computer would not have access to your information. This is especially critical for the Client Extranet which uses cookies.
