Filmsite: Privacy Policy

Filmsite has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate its firm commitment to privacy. We care about data privacy and security, and are committed to protecting your personal information and your right to privacy. Privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to the site. The following discloses information gathering and dissemination practices for this website. This is the privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) that governs how Filmsite, LLC, a pending California limited liability company (referred to in the following as "Filmsite," "Site," "we," "our," or "us") uses Personal Data (defined below) that we collect, receive and store about individuals in connection with the use of our website: https://www.filmsite.org (together with its sub-domains, content and services, a "Site").

This privacy notice applies to all information collected through our Site and/or any related services, sales, marketing or events (we refer to them collectively in this privacy notice as the "Services"). This Policy applies regardless of whether you access the Services using a personal computer, mobile device, gaming console or other equipment or device. If there are any updates or changes to the Policy, the changes will appear on this page. By using the Site, you agree to be bound by our Privacy Policy, which is incorporated into these Terms and Conditions (see also Filmsite: Terms of Use). If you disagree with the terms of this Policy, please do not use the Services.

Please be advised the Site is hosted in the United States. Our services are intended only for individuals located in the United States and Canada. If you access or visit our Services or contact us from outside of the United States, please be advised that (1) any information you provide to us or that we automatically collect will be stored or otherwise processed in the United States and may be transferred to other jurisdictions; (2) that by using our Services or submitting information to us, you agree to such processing and transfer; and (3) U.S. law may not offer the same privacy protections as those in your country.

When a visitor comes to the Site to visit, use, or navigate the Services, it collects some information to improve the overall quality of the online experience, to help diagnose problems with our server, to see how often individuals use parts of the Services so we can analyze and improve them, and to administer the Web site. This information does not reveal your specific identity (like your name or contact information). We may use this data alone or in aggregate form, as a statistical measure, but not in a manner that is intended to identify you personally.

The Site collects device information (including device name, hardware model, operating system and version) and usage information (such as the visitor's IP Address (for example, the domain name where the user is logged on from), the city, state and/or zip code associated with your IP Address, referral data or URLs (the address of the last URL a user visited prior to clicking through to this site), operating system, language preferences, country, location. The Site also collects information about how and when you use our Services, including your access times, browser characteristics or types (e.g., Mozilla's Firefox, Google Chrome, Microsoft's Bing, or other browser on a Macintosh or Windows platform, or on a mobile phone) and other technical information.

The Site also counts, tracks, and aggregates information about a user's activity into a general analysis of traffic flows, derived mainly by tallying or counting page views throughout the site, to track how well each page performs overall, or by tracking where traffic comes from. We may obtain information about you or your use of the Services from third parties and sources, such as our vendors, like web host providers, analytics providers or advertisers. Such aggregated information enables the site to better tailor the content to users' needs and to help advertisers better understand the demographics of the site's audience. The information is primarily needed to maintain the security and operation of our Services, and for our internal analytics and reporting purposes.

Like many businesses, to access, collect or store this information, we use cookies and web beacons, and may in the future use other similar technologies. Specific information about how we use such technologies and how you can refuse certain cookies is set out in our Cookie Policy (see below). However, the site does not track the usage patterns of individual users or store individually-identifiable information or personal data about Web users, such as name, phone number, and street address. Unless described in this Policy, we do not share, sell, rent or trade any of your information with third parties for their promotional purposes.

The Site may contain links to various Third-party advertising companies (that are not owned or controlled by the Site) and which may link to other websites, online services or mobile applications, to serve ads when you visit the Site and its Services. (Clicking on such advertisements and links will direct you to the website or application of a third party.) The ability to access Third party information from the Services and to link to other websites and locations from the Services is for your convenience and does not signify our endorsement of such third parties, their products, their services, their websites and locations or the content they make available on the Services or on their websites and locations.

We cannot guarantee the safety and privacy of data you provide to any third parties. Any data collected by Third parties is not covered by this privacy notice. We are not responsible for the content or privacy and security practices and policies of any third parties, including other websites, services or applications that may be linked to or from the Services.

We encourage you to read and review the privacy statements and policies of these Third-party sites, and contact them directly to respond to your questions as their Privacy Policy may differ from ours. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to our Site(s) that are contained in web cookies and other tracking technologies in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of Third party websites, services and advertisements, and you visit them at your own risk. This Policy applies solely to information collected by us through the Services and does not apply to third party websites or applications.

Security

This Site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Access to computer data and files at the Site are secured by password coding, and are properly protected to prevent unauthorized access. We are committed to protecting the security of the Site. We use a variety of industry-standard security technologies and procedures to help protect against unauthorized access, use or disclosure. These measures vary based on the sensitivity of the information that we collect. Even though we have taken significant steps to protect your information, no company, including us, can fully eliminate security risks associated with information. We cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent every unauthorized attempt to access, use, or disclose your information.

Cookies Policy

Our Cookies Policy explains what cookies are, how we use cookies, how Third-Parties we may partner with may use cookies on the Service, your choices regarding cookies and further information about cookies (often referred to as a browser cookie, HTTP cookie, Internet cookie or Web cookie).

It must be noted that many of the largest and most-visited websites use cookies by default, so cookies are everywhere and almost unavoidable. Disabling cookies will lock a user out of many of the most widely-used sites on the Internet like Youtube, Gmail, Yahoo mail, and others. Even search settings require cookies for language settings.

Cookies are small pieces of text, often encrypted text files, located or stored in browser directories. Cookies are NOT viruses. Cookies use a plain text format and contain limited non-personal data, usually a unique identifier and the name of the site. They are not compiled pieces of code so they cannot be executed nor are they self-executing. Cookies cannot contain viruses nor install spyware or malware on your computer. Accordingly, they cannot make copies of themselves and spread to other networks to execute and replicate again. Since they cannot perform these functions, they fall outside the standard virus definition.

Cookies are created when the user's web browser loads a particular website. A cookie is a small file (a small transparent image file or line of code) sent from the website's server to your computer whenever you visit. The website sends information to your browser which then creates a text file. Every time the user returns to the same website, the user's web browser retrieves and sends this file to the website's server, to notify it of any previous activity you engaged in on the website. Once you return to a website, its server can retrieve the cookie file from your local computer to assist in expediting certain functions. Most Web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. A cookie file allows the Service or a Third-party to recognize you and possibly make your next visit easier and the Service more useful to you. They are used by web developers to help users navigate their websites efficiently and perform certain functions.

Cookies can be "session" or "persistent" cookies. They will either be stored for the duration of your visit (a "session cookie") or they will remain on your device for a fixed period, which could be months or even years, to remember you across multiple browsing sessions (a "persistent cookie"). And cookies can be either "first party" or "third party." Cookies may be served to you by the website you are visiting (a "first party cookie") or by another organization providing services to that website, such as an analytics company or advertising network (a "third party cookie").

When you use and access the Site and its Services, we may place a small number of cookies files in your web browser. Therefore, by using the Services, you consent to the use of cookies. We use cookies for the following purposes: to enable certain functions of the Service, to provide detailed analytics, and to enable advertisements delivery. Analytically, it is helpful to know how many users there are, which parts of the Site are most popular, which web pages are visited or which elements of a page are viewed, and when and for how long. The Site uses different kinds of both session and persistent cookies on the Service.

Advertisements may come from third party companies called "ad networks." The Site depends upon advertisers who pay to put their ads on the Site. "Ad networks" include third party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors and research firms. If a user views a web page with an ad, and/or clicks on an advertisement, the user's web browser requests the ad from the ad network's servers, which allows the ad network to view, edit or set their own cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, or similar tracking tools on the user's browser, just as if the user had visited another web page. In the case of advertisements delivery by an ad network, the advertiser may use the information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this Site in order to provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you. Over a period of time, aggregate information of this type can help site owners push targeted products or information to the user's browser during visits - this can sometimes be helpful, and sometimes not. However, at no time does this Site or its service providers attempt to identify you individually, nor does this Site create an individual profile for the purposes of delivering advertising.

These are some common examples of the use of cookies: to identify what country or region you visited from, the demographics of users, what methods and how a user came to visit the Site, including whether the user came directly to the Site (by typing in the address) or from another website link, and the URL of that website. The Site also tries to identify what browsers are used (so we can maximize compatibility), if the user is visiting from a search engine such as Google or Bing and what search string was used, or whether it was from a bookmark (or favorite).

Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings, and have built in privacy settings that provide differing levels of cookie acceptance, expiration time, and disposal after a user has visited a particular site. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove cookies and to reject cookies. If you'd like to delete cookies or instruct your web browser to delete or refuse cookies, please visit the help pages of your web browser. If you choose to remove cookies or reject cookies, this could affect certain features or services of our Services.

If you would like to opt out of receiving ads, please use various ad blocking programs/services. To opt-out of interest-based advertising by advertisers on our Services visit: http://www.aboutads.info/choices/.

Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems and mobile applications include a Do-Not-Track ('DNT') feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. No uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. As such, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will inform you about that practice in a revised version of this privacy notice.
