Movie Showdown Privacy Policy

Last Updated: November 7, 2017


1.              Your privacy is important to Movie Showdown. This Privacy Policy covers how we collect, use, disclose, transfer, and store information that we receive when you use our Services (as defined in our Terms of Service, accessible at “Terms of use”). Please take a moment and read over our privacy policy and let us know if you have any questions. This Privacy Policy applies only to those websites, services and applications included within “Services” and doesn’t apply to any third-party websites, services or applications, even if they are accessible through our Services. Also, please note that, unless we define a term in this Privacy Policy, all capitalized words used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms of Service.


Collection and Use of Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”)


2.              Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Services, to administer your use of the Services (including your Account, if you are an Account holder), and to enable you to enjoy and easily navigate our Services.


How we collect and use information


3.              The following are some examples of how we might collect and use PII:

  1. When you register, we may collect a variety of information, including your name, address, phone number, email address, contact preferences, and credit card information.
  2. We may collect information you provide us with such as your gender and age range preferences, search distance preferences and information about your interests while using the app or online game.
  3. If you chat with other Movie Showdown users you provide us the content of your chats and if you contact our Support staff or any Movie Showdown staff member you provide us with the content of that communication. Movie Showdown can decide that the content of that communication is in some way inappropriate and terminate the users account. Movie Showdown may, but is not obligated to monitor or review any content you post as a part of the service.
  4. We may use cookies to identify that you’ve logged in to the Services. Although most browsers automatically accept cookies, you can change your browser options to stop automatically accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting cookies. Please note, however, that if you don’t accept cookies, you will not be able to stay automatically logged in to the Services.
  5. The PII we collect allows us to keep you posted on Movie Showdown’s latest Services and updates. Movie Showdown and its affiliates may share PII with each other and use it consistent with this Privacy Policy. They may also combine it with other information to provide and improve our Services.
  6. We also use PII to help us develop, deliver, and improve our Services.
  7. From time to time, we may use your PII to send important notices, such as communications about purchases and changes to our terms, conditions, and policies.
  8. We may also use PII for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve Movie Showdown’s Services and customer communications.
  9. We may use PII to develop, display, and track content and advertising specific to your interests expressed using the services and other sites, including providing our advertisements to you when you visit other sites.
  10. We may use PII to verify your eligibility and deliver prizes in connection with contests, sweepstakes, and promotions.
  11. We may use PII to enforce or exercise any rights in our Terms of Use and preform functions or services as otherwise described to you at the time of collection.

Collection and Use of Non-PII


4.              We also collect non-PII − data in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-PII for any purpose. We may collect information such as occupation, language, zip code, area code, unique device identifier, location, and the time zone where the Services are used so that we can better understand customer behaviour and improve our Services.


5.              If we do combine non-PII with PII the combined information will be treated as PII for as long as it remains combined.


Disclosure to Third Parties


6.              At times Movie Showdown may make certain PII available to strategic partners that work with Movie Showdown to provide products and services, or that help Movie Showdown market to customers. For example, when you make a purchase through the Movie Showdown App, you authorize Movie Showdown and its third party payment processor to exchange the payment information you provide to us to carry out your purchase on the Services. PII will only be shared by Movie Showdown to provide or improve our Services; it will not be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes.


Service Providers


7.              Movie Showdown shares PII with companies who provide services such as hosting, information processing, extending credit, fulfilling customer orders, delivering products to you, managing and enhancing customer data, providing customer service, assessing your interest in our products and services, and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys.




8.              It may be necessary − by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence − for Movie Showdown Inc. to disclose your PII. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.


9.              We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale we may transfer any and all PII we collect to the relevant third party.


Protection of PII


10.           Movie Showdown takes precautions — including administrative, technical, and physical measures — to safeguard your PII against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.


11.           When you use the Movie Showdown App or post on a chat room, or social networking service, the PII you share is visible to other users and can be read, collected, or used by them. You are solely responsible for the PII you choose to submit in these instances. For example, if you list your name and email address in a forum posting, that information is public. Please take care when using these features.


Integrity and Retention of PII


12.           We will retain your PII for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.


Access to PII


13.           For other PII, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access to such PII so you can request that we correct or delete the PII we have about you. We may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law.




14.           We do not knowingly collect PII from children under 13. If we learn that we have collected the PII of a child under 13, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.


Location-Based Services


15.           In some cases we collect and store information about where you are located, such as by converting your IP address into a rough geolocation. We may use location information to improve and personalize our Services for you.

International Users


16.           Information you provide may be transferred or accessed by entities around the world as described in this Privacy Policy. If you’re located outside the Canada and choose to provide your PII to us, we may transfer your PII to the Canada and process it there. Your use of the Services followed by your submission of any PII represents your agreement to that transfer.


Our Companywide Commitment to Your Privacy


17.           We take reasonable measures to protect the information that we collect from or about you (including your PII) from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Please be aware, however, that no method of transmitting information over the Internet or storing information is completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of any information.


18.           Movie Showdown may update its Privacy Policy from time to time. Any information that we collect is subject to the privacy policy in effect at the time such information is collected. When we change the policy in a material way, we’ll notify you of such changes by posting them on the Services or by sending you an email or other notification, and we’ll indicate when such changes will become effective. A notice will be posted on our website along with the updated Privacy Policy.
