What types of information is Brooklyn Horror Film Festival collecting, and how is the site collecting it?
The majority of our sites and services are offered without our collecting any personally identifiable information from you. You can surf Brooklyn Horror Film Festival Web sites and view much of our content anonymously.
Information You Provide
There are a few activities on our sites where the collection of personally identifiable information is necessary. Those activities include things like entering a contest or sweepstakes, signing up for a e-mail list, making a purchase, or contacting us. When personally identifiable information is collected, you will know because you will have to fill out a form. For most activities, we collect only your name, e-mail address, and zip code. When you make a purchase, we also collect your street and billing addresses, your phone number, and credit card information. Depending on what you purchase, we may also need to collect other personal information, an example would be something like your clothing size.
Information Collected from You with Technology.
Brooklyn Horror Film Festival sites collect 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. Brooklyn Horror Film Festival sites use information collected through technology to make our sites more interesting and useful to you.
What Are Cookies, and How Does Brooklyn Horror Film Festival Use Them?
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 Google Chrome 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 won’t have access to many Brooklyn Horror Film Festival features that make your Web experience more efficient — like the features mentioned above — and some of our services may not function properly.
How does Brooklyn Horror Film Festival use the personally identifiable information that has been collected?
Brooklyn Horror Film Festival uses personally identifiable information in a limited number of ways. We use the information to complete transactions. For instance, if you contact us for help we will use the information to contact you. We use information collected to notify you if you’ve won a game or contest. Information we collect is used to send you e-mail updates and newsletters about our sites. We may also use the information you provide to send you Brooklyn Horror Film Festival e-mail promotions and special offers from our third-party sponsors.
Does Brooklyn Horror Film Festival share information with companies or other organizations that are not part of Brooklyn Horror Film Festival family of sites?
We aren’t in the business of selling information about our Guests. We will absolutely not share your information with other parties without your consent.
Companies That Are “Standing in the Shoes” of Brooklyn Horror Film Festival
Sometimes we hire companies to help us deliver products or services, like a ticketing company that processes our ticket orders. In those instances, we need to share your information with them. These companies are basically “standing in the shoes” of Brooklyn Horror Film Festival, and they are allowed to use the information only to deliver the product or service.
Companies Offering Promotions, Products, or Services
On occasion, we offer promotions — like sweepstakes or free subscriptions — in conjunction with a sponsor. We will share your information with the sponsors if they need it to send you a product, such as a magazine subscription. We may share your information with those sponsors so that they can send you other special promotions they offer, but only if you give us your permission to do so, and we will share it only with that specific sponsor. In addition, Brooklyn Horror Film Festival occasionally sends e-mail promotions out to our Guests on behalf of third-party sponsors. In this instance, we don’t share your name with the third party — we do the mailing for them. Again, we only send these promotions to you if you’ve given your permission.
Purchase or Sale of Businesses
Online business is still in a very early stage and is changing and evolving rapidly. As Brooklyn Horror Film Festival continually looks for ways to improve our business, we may buy or sell a company. If we buy or sell a business, the names collected will likely be transferred as a part of the sale. Information about registrants will be used in the aggregate. However, if we buy a business, we will honor the requests that customers made of that business regarding e-mail communications. In the event that we sell a business, we will do everything in our power to ensure that the e-mail communications requests you made of us are honored.
Organizations That Help Protect the Security and Safety of our Guests and our Sites.
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 Guests and our sites.
What choices do I have about Brooklyn Horror Film Festival collecting, using, and sharing my information?
What type of security does Brooklyn Horror Film Festival provide?
The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our Guests is of utmost concern to us. Brooklyn Horror Film Festival takes technical, contractual, administrative, and physical security steps to protect all visitors’ information. When you provide credit card information, we use secure socket layer (SSL) encryption to protect it. There are some things that you can do to help protect the security of your information as well. For instance, never give out your password, 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 won’t have access to your information.
