Types of Information We Collect
We have the ability to collect two types of information from people who visit our site: Personally Identifiable Information and Aggregate Information. Personally Identifiable Information is any information by which you can be identified, such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, credit card information, personal interests, etc.
Aggregate Information is anonymous data such as your IP address (i.e., a number that is assigned to your computer whenever you connect to the Internet), your domain name (e.g., “XYZ.com”) and user statistics (e.g., 60% of our users live in New York). Aggregate data is very much like television ratings that show the television network how many viewers are watching a particular television program.
What We Do With the Information
We collect Aggregate Information to diagnose technical problems on our site, to help us administer the site, to help us improve the quality of the pages that make up our site, to permit us to provide data regarding the volume of use on, and frequency of visitors to, the site, to gather broad demographic information and to improve our site to assure that it is as appealing as we can make it for as many people as possible. In no event, however, is this information matched to your Personally Identifiable Information.
BLACKTVFILMCOLLECTIVE.ORG also collects Personally Identifiable Information. This can be done when you choose certain products, services or programs offered on our site. For example, when you subscribe to our service, when you submit required information on the page entitled “(register page)”, you are supplying us with your Personally Identifiable Information. We use such information to try to offer you our products, services and programs, to improve the quality of the content that we provide on the site, to personalize your online experience, and to build a strong community. We may disclose your Personally Identifiable Information to (i) BlackTVFilmCollective.ORG’s current and future entertainment and sponsorship, advertisement and development partners and strategic alliances, and (ii) BlackTVFilmCollective.ORG’s contractors, vendors, consultants and professional advisors to the extent necessary for them to perform services on our behalf, and only under disclosure restrictions. Your name, email address and any other information you choose to make available in connection with any materials posted by you to BLACKTVFILMCOLLECTIVE.ORG will be published on BLACKTVFILMCOLLECTIVE.ORG and will be disclosed to other users of BLACKTVFILMCOLLECTIVE.ORG and to other third parties who may have access to or otherwise see a display of such information on BlackTVFilmCollective.org. We will also share your Personally Identifiable Information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of BLACKTVFILMCOLLECTIVE.ORG when we have your consent to do so. Additionally, we may transfer your Personally Identifiable Information as part of the assets of BLACKTVFILMCOLLECTIVE.ORG if BLACKTVFILMCOLLECTIVE.ORG is, or parts of its business are, sold to, merged with or acquired by, a third party. BLACKTVFILMCOLLECTIVE.ORG may also disclose your Personally Identifiable Information when required by law or court order.
Whether or not you provide such information is completely your own choice. You are not obligated to answer any question that is presented to you. Of course, if you choose not to provide the information, you might be unable to access certain services, offers and content on our site if you do not tell us your e-mail address, etc.
Deleting Information About You
If you have provided Personally Identifiable Information but later you object to the use that we are making of that information (for example, you no longer wish to receive email from BlackTVFilmCollective.ORG) you can ask us to stop making use of that information by emailing to [email protected] and requesting your name to be removed for our list.
We take special care to protect the safety and privacy of children. Our site is general audience site. Nevertheless, we do not permit children under age 18 to register on our site for any product, service or program. We do not collect or solicit personal information about users under age 18. We urge parents and guardians to participate in your children’s online activities and use parental control or other Internet filtering technology to supervise your children’s access to the Internet.
In an effort to ensure security and protection of your Personally Identifiable Information, we encrypt all submissions using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, the industry standard method for securing online transactions. All Personally Identifiable Information including credit card number, name and address is encrypted in an effort to prevent such information from being used as transmitted over the Internet.
Protecting the security of your personal information that you share with us is of the utmost importance to us. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet or data storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from our site, and you do so at your own risk.
