At Walter Reuben, Inc. (“WalterFilm”), we are sensitive to privacy issues on the Internet. We believe that it is important you know how we treat the information about you that we collect on our Web site located at walterfilm.com (the “Site”). We have created this Privacy Statement to inform you of how information collected on and in connection with the Site is collected, used and disclosed.
Information We Collect
In general, you may visit the Site without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information about you. Our servers collect the domain names, IP addresses, operating system in use (e.g., Macintosh, Windows), browser (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer) and similar information regarding your computer when you visit the Site. This information is aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the Site, pages viewed and similar aggregate information. We may also take information that includes personally identifiable information and remove individual identities from it. If we do so, we will treat the resulting information as aggregate information under this Privacy Statement. We may use aggregate information to measure the use of our Site, to consider and develop new products and services, and to improve the content, performance and marketing of our Site and our existing products and services.
E-mail addresses and other personally identifiable information such as first and last name, home or other physical address, telephone number, billing and payment information and other similar information is collected only when voluntarily provided by a visitor during registration for our newsletter at the time of a sales transaction or as otherwise requested on the Site. We refer to personally identifiable information as “personal information” in the rest of this Privacy Statement. We may link personal information about you with demographic information, such as your preferences, when such demographic information is linked to personal information. If we do so, we will treat such linked demographic information as personal information under this Privacy Statement.
Walterfilm has a voluntary newsletter that it sends out from time to time to users who sign up for it. Only those requesting this newsletter receive it, and any recipient may opt-out at any time by following the instructions set forth under the “Choice” heading below.
Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
Generally, Walterfilm uses personal information collected on this Site for the purpose for which the information was provided (e.g., to answer customer questions, to deliver goods or services purchased by our customers, or to deliver our newsletter), or to inform our customers about other Walterfilm products or services we believe they may find of interest. When we use personal information in our marketing efforts, we provide you with choices (see the information under “Choice,” below). We may also receive information about you from other sources, and may combine this information with other personal information we maintain about you. If we do so, this Privacy Statement governs the handling of such information.
Walterfilm does not sell, transfer or otherwise disclose your personal information to any third parties, except in the limited circumstances described in this Privacy Statement. We may share personal information with third-party vendors who assist us in performing internal functions necessary to operate our business. These functions may include, for example, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, mailing items and fulfilling or delivering orders. In all cases we limit the information shared with our third-party vendors to that which is necessary to carry out those functions and we require them to keep the information confidential. We are not responsible for any additional information you provide to these parties, and we encourage you to become familiar with their practices before disclosing information directly to them.
We also disclose personal information when we believe it is appropriate to comply with the law (e.g., a lawful subpoena, warrant or court order); to enforce or apply this Privacy Statement or our other policies or agreements; to initiate, render, bill and collect for amounts owed to us; to protect our or our customers’ rights, property or safety; to protect our customers from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful use of, this Site; or if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person requires disclosure of communications or justifies disclosure of records without delay.
Also, if customers or visitors wish to correct any information which we have on file about them, we will gladly do so on request.
