Our Site is mostly designed to provide you with information about our films, television programs and other content, and you may browse our Site without providing us with personal information. However, through certain features on the Site or otherwise, you may provide or we may collect personal information, which is information that is linked to a specific, identifiable individual (“Personal Information”). We may also collect other information about you, such as information about the device you are using to access the Site, how you use the Site, or certain information about your preferences. The information we collect may be provided by you or a third party, or may be collected automatically. You acknowledge that if you choose to share or post any information publicly (including on our Site, on a third party platform, or through Social Media) about the content on the Site or your film viewing history, the Video Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (18 U.S.C. § 2710) (the “VPPA”) (or any similar state law) does not apply. However, to the extent the VPPA or any similar state law does apply in any manner, you are providing your informed, written consent to the disclosure of that information pursuant to the VPPA and any such state law.
We may ask you to provide certain information to us when you use the Site or interact with us. For example, we may ask you to provide your email address to subscribe to our mailing list and we collect information from you if you contact us. Our Site is intended for a general audience and is not targeted to persons younger than the age of 16. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children younger than the age of 16. If we learn that we have inadvertently collected Personal Information from a user younger than age 16, we will delete that information from our active databases.
We and third party advertising companies and service providers may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect certain information whenever you visit our Site or otherwise interact with us or our content (“Usage Information”). Usage Information may include the browser and operating system you are using, the URL or advertisement that referred you to our Site, all areas within the Site that you visit, and the time of day you visited the Site, among other information. In addition, we may automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifier (“Device Identifier”) for any computer, mobile phone, or other device used to access the Site. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your device used to access a Site, and our servers identify your device by its Device Identifier. Note that we may be able to collect or infer your approximate location through certain information we collect, such as your IP address. In addition, some mobile service providers may also provide us, or our third party service providers, with information regarding the physical location of the device used to access the Site. We may use Usage Information for a variety of purposes, including enhancing or otherwise improving the Site (such as to help diagnose problems with our server and administer our website) and our products and services (such as by gathering demographic information about how our visitors interact with our content). Usage Information is generally non-identifying, but if we associate it with you as a specific and identifiable person, we treat it as Personal Information.
The technologies that may be used to collect Usage Information include the following:

Web Beacons. We may use web beacons (small graphic images or other web programming code, also known as "1x1 GIFs" or "clear GIFs") and similar technologies on our Site and within our communications to you. Web beacons can recognize certain types of information on your computer such as cookies, the time and date a page is viewed, and a description of the page where the web beacon is placed. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, such as to count visitors to the Site, to monitor how users navigate the Site, to count how many e-mails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many particular links were actually viewed and to improve your experience on the Site, including to provide you with content customized to your interests. Our web beacons may collect some contact information (for example, the email address associated with an email message that contains a web beacon).
Embedded Scripts. An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Site, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device from our web server or a third party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Site, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter. In addition, we may use a variety of other technologies that collect similar information for security and fraud detection purposes.

How We Share Information We Collect
Third Parties Providing Services on Our Behalf
We may use third-party service providers to perform certain services on our behalf, such as hosting the Site or Site features, providing website usage analytics, sending email or other communications, or performing other administrative services. We may give these service providers access to your information (including Personal Information) so that they can carry out the services they are performing for you or for Spyglass.
Sweepstakes, Contests, and Promotions
We may offer sweepstakes, contests, or other promotions (any, a “Promotion”) that may require registration. By participating in a Promotion, you agree to the conditions or official rules that govern that Promotion, which may involvement specific requirements (including allowing the sponsor(s) of the Promotion to use your name, voice, likeness, or other indicia of persona in advertising or marketing materials, except where prohibited by law). If you choose to enter a Promotion, Personal Information may be disclosed to third parties or the public in connection with administering the Promotion, such as in connection with winner selection, prize fulfillment, as required by law, or as permitted by the Promotion’s terms or official rules.
Administrative and Legal
Spyglass reserves the right to use or disclose any information (including Personal Information) as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request; to protect the integrity of the Site; to fulfill your requests; to cooperate in any law enforcement investigation, an investigation on a public safety matter, or an investigation into claims of intellectual-property infringement; to protect and defend the legal rights or property of Spyglass, our affiliates, subsidiaries, and shareholders, the Site or its users, or any other party; or, in an emergency, to protect the health and safety of our users or the general public.
Business Transfers and Transitions
In the event Spyglass goes through a transition (such as a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy or sale of all or a portion of its assets, such as during the course of any due diligence process), your information (including your Personal Information) will likely be among the assets transferred. By providing your Personal Information, you agree that we may transfer such information to the acquiring entity without your further consent.
Spyglass may work with network advertisers, ad agencies, analytics service providers, and other vendors to serve our advertisements online and to provide us with information regarding use of and traffic on the Site (such as information about the pages viewed and the actions users take when visiting the Site) and the effectiveness of our advertisements. The advertisements you see may be served by one or more third parties, who may set and access their own tracking technologies on your device (including cookies and web beacons). These third parties collect and use information about your activities on the Site, and other websites and services you visit across the various devices you use, to provide you targeted advertising based upon your interests. We and our third party vendors may collect Personal Information over time when you visit the Site or other online websites and services.
Cookies and web beacons, including those set by third-party network advertisers, may be used to (among other things): target advertisements, prevent you from seeing the same advertisements too many times, and conduct research regarding the usefulness of certain advertisements to you. We may share certain information such as Device Identifiers, Usage Information, and de-identified information with third-party advertising companies, analytics providers, and other vendors for advertising and analytics purposes.
We use a variety of service providers to perform advertising and analytics services, and some of these companies may be members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) or Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”). You may wish to visit optout.networkadvertising.org, which provides information regarding targeted advertising and the opt-out procedures of NAI members. You may also want to visit optout.aboutads.info, which provides information regarding targeted advertising and offers an opt-out for participating companies.
Please note opting out through these mechanisms does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive non-targeted advertisements while online.
Some Internet browsers may be configured to send “Do Not Track” signals to the online services that you visit. There is no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this context. Like many websites and online services, our Site does not alter its practices when we receive a “Do Not Track” signal from a visitor’s browsers. To find out more about “Do Not Track,” please visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.
The Site may link to or incorporate websites or content hosted and served by third parties over which we have no control and which are governed by the privacy policies and business practices of those third parties. Spyglass is not responsible for the privacy practices or business practices of any third party.
We employ commercially reasonable security methods and technologies to help secure your Personal Information, including physical, technological, and organizational protections. However, no system can be guaranteed 100% secure. We therefore cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, or that we transmit to you, or guarantee that it will be free from unauthorized access by third parties. You use the Site and provide us with information at your own initiative and risk.
Spyglass is a United States company. Please be aware that information we collect will be transferred to and processed in the United States and other countries.

California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits residents of the State of California to request certain details about how their personal information has been shared during the calendar year with third parties for those third parties’ own direct marketing purposes, unless, as Spyglass does, the business permits California residents to opt-in (or opt-out) of this type of sharing. We will not share personal information about you with third parties for their own direct marketing purposes if you do not opt-in (or if you opt-out) at the time Spyglass offers you that choice.
