Your privacy is critically important to us. At OpenIndie we have a few fundamental principles:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
- We only share your personal information with filmmakers when you have requested their film. This information can only be used for the sole purpose of communication on the subject of said film, the screening thereof or products and campaigns relating to the film.
- Beyond that we don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
- When we say deleted we mean deleted, we do not keep your data if you have asked for it to be removed.
If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.
OpenIndie operates several websites including openindie.com, openindie.org and blog.openindie.com. It is OpenIndie's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, OpenIndie collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. OpenIndie’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how OpenIndie’s visitors use its website. From time to time, OpenIndie may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
OpenIndie also collects potentially personally-identifying information like geolocation data for logged in users and Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on the OpenIndie blog. OpenIndie only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses / geolocation data under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to OpenIndie’s websites choose to interact with OpenIndie in ways that require OpenIndie to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that OpenIndie gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who wish to request a film to provide an email address, password, postal code and country. Those who engage in transactions with OpenIndie – by screening their film via an OpenIndie partner venue for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, OpenIndie collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with OpenIndie. OpenIndie does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
OpenIndie may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, OpenIndie may monitor the most popular films on the openindie.com site. OpenIndie may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, OpenIndie does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
OpenIndie discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations (such as filmmakers or venues) that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on OpenIndie’s behalf, (ii) wish to provide services related to or communicate on the subject of a film you have requested via one of OpenIndie's websites or apps, and (iii) that have agreed not to disclose the information to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using OpenIndie’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. OpenIndie will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, OpenIndie discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when OpenIndie believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of OpenIndie, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the OpenIndie website and have supplied your email address, OpenIndie may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with OpenIndie and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. OpenIndie takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If OpenIndie, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that OpenIndie goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of OpenIndie may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
