What Personal Information Do We Collect?
We collect the following types of information from our users:
Personal Information You Provide to Us:
We sometimes request users of the Site to provide Personal Information, which users provide strictly on a voluntary basis. We receive and store any Personal Information you enter on the Site or provide to us in any other way, including by submitting a project title, synopsis or logline, screenplay or other material on the Site. The types of Personal Information collected may include your name, email address and contact number. The Personal Information you provide is used for purposes such as responding to your submissions or inquiries, and communicating with you about the Site and services or content that might be of interest to you.
Personal Information Collected Automatically:
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with the Site. We automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser, including your Internet Protocol (IP) address, cookie or web beacon information, and the page you requested.
An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) whenever you access the Internet. This number may be the same each time you access the Internet or it may change. Like other Internet websites, we use IP addresses to collect aggregate, anonymous information about numbers of visitors and website usage. The IP address is logged on our server when your computer requests information from us. However, to allow users to access the Site anonymously, your IP address is not linked with Personal Information about you. We reserve the right, in rare instances, to use IP addresses to identify individuals who threaten the Site or our products, services or content.
Generally, the Site automatically collects information on our server logs from your web browser regarding your usage of the Site. We only use this data in aggregate, anonymous form (that is, as a statistical measure), and not in a manner that would identify you personally. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate, anonymous information to our partners about how our users, collectively, use the Site. Again, we never disclose aggregate, anonymous information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally.
We often receive a confirmation when you open an email from us if your computer supports this type of program. We use this confirmation to help us make emails more interesting and helpful. We also compare our user list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our users. If you do not want to receive email or other mail from us, please contact us by email as set forth below.
What About Cookies?
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in the Site are visited and by how many people. Our cookies do not collect Personal Information, and we do not combine the general information collected through cookies with other Personal Information to tell us who you are or what your screen name or email address is.
Other than cookies, there are other mechanisms we may use (such as beacons, tags and so forth) that enable us to obtain certain website usage information.
How Else Do We Use Any of the Personal Information We Receive?
Will We Share Any of the Personal Information We Receive?
Personal Information about our users is an integral part of our business. We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information to anyone. We share your Personal Information as described below:
Affiliated Business We Do Not Control: From time to time, we may be affiliated with other businesses and may work closely with them. You can easily recognize when an affiliated business is associated, and we will share user information that is needed for any business we conduct with that affiliated business.
Agents: We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Examples include sending postal mail or email, and administering the Site. Unless stated otherwise, our agents do not have any right to use Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.
Our Protection and the Protection of Others: We may release Personal Information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with law or court order; enforce or apply our conditions of use (such as our Terms and Conditions) and other agreements, or protect our rights, property or safety, or that of our employees, our users or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection or security violations, including any harmful, infringing or illegal activity. Our disclosures may occur under circumstances where we may not be authorized to advise you of such action.
