MovieLabs Legal and Privacy Notices
MovieLabs respects your privacy and is committed to protect the personal information that you share with us. Generally, you can browse through our website without giving us any information about yourself. When we do need your personal information to work with you or when you choose to provide us with your personal information, this policy describes how we collect and use your personal information.
Information You Submit
Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, email address, a company or home, postal or other physical address, other contact information, title, birth date, gender, occupation, industry, personal or product interests, other information when needed to provide a service you requested.
When you browse our website, you do so anonymously. We don’t collect personal information, including your email address, unless you indicate that you wish to work with MovieLabs or choose to provide us with your personal information. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our website you visit and how long you spend there. But we do not link your IP address to any personal information unless you log in to a portion of our website that requires a login and password. Like many other commercial websites, the MovieLabs website may use a standard technology called a “cookie” to collect information about how you use the site. Please go to “Cookies and Tracking Information” below for more information.
MovieLabs collects personal information when you register with MovieLabs, when you submit a proposal to MovieLabs, when you register to attend a seminar or participate in an online survey, when you ask to be included in an email or other mailing list, or when you submit your information to MovieLabs for any other reason.
Access to certain MovieLabs web pages may require a login and a password. The use of those web pages, and the information or programs downloadable from those sites, may be governed by a written agreement between you or your employer and MovieLabs. Your personal information may be retained by MovieLabs to verify compliance with the agreement and log or track usage of those sites.
If you choose to provide us with your personal information, we may transfer that information, within MovieLabs or to MovieLabs’s third party service providers, sponsoring studios, technology consultants, or other advisors, including across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world.
When personal information is collected, we will inform you at the point of collection of the purpose for the collection. If we engage in marketing efforts with you, we will always give you the opportunity to “opt out” of receiving direct marketing or market research information. This means we assume you have given us your consent to collect and use your information in accordance with this Policy unless you take affirmative action to indicate that you do not consent, for instance by clicking or checking the appropriate option or box at the point of collection. In some cases, when applicable, we will provide you with the opportunity to “opt in.” This means we will require your affirmative action to indicate your consent before we use your information for purposes other than the purpose for which it was submitted.
Cookies and Tracking Technology
If you prefer not to receive cookies while browsing our website, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies and refuse the cookie when your browser alerts you to its presence. You can also refuse all cookies by turning them off in your browser, although you may not be able to take full advantage of MovieLabs’ website if you do so. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use/navigate through many parts of our website, except access to certain of MovieLabs’s web pages may require a login and password.
How We Use Information Collected
MovieLabs uses information for several general purposes: to fulfill your requests to work with us on your proposals, to personalize your experience on our website, to keep you up to date on the latest information from MovieLabs or other information we think you’d like to hear about either from us or from our business partners, and to better understand your needs and improve our website and operations. We may also use your information to send you, or to have our business partners send you, direct marketing information or contact you for market research.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Your personal information may be shared outside MovieLabs under conditions described in this policy. Your information may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country where MovieLabs, its affiliates or agents are located.
If you are participating in any portions of our website that require a login, your MovieLabs account information will be password-protected for your privacy and security. Inside MovieLabs, data is stored in controlled servers with limited access. MovieLabs safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. In certain areas of our websites, MovieLabs may use industry-standard SSL- encryption to enhance the security of data transmissions. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure the security of the information you transmit to us, and so we urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure browser.
MovieLabs will amend this policy from time to time. If we make any substantial changes in the way we use your personal information we will make that information available by posting a notice on this site.
