INFORMATION COLLECTED BY GOFOBO.
At Gofobo, we take your privacy seriously. Our site may request users to provide contact, demographic and/or personal information (such as their name, location, gender, age and e-mail address). The demographic information is used to enhance user experience so we can be more content-specific. The contact information is used to notify users of new content and for surveys and newsletters, via e-mail. Personal information that is collected is used primarily for in-house statistics, advertising and marketing information. Gofobo collects the users’ ZIP codes to provide specific theatre and event demographics in their areas.
(a) Server Information
Like every website, Gofobo’s servers automatically and temporarily store the following information in the server log files. This information is provided by your browser, unless you have deactivated the function.
• IP address
• File query by the client
• The http response code
• The Internet page from which you visited us (referrer URL)
• The time of the server query
• The browser type and version
• The operating system used on the enquiring computer
The server log files may be periodically analyzed to measure the traffic through our servers, the number of pages visited, and the level of demand for pages and topics of interest.
(b) Site Visit Tracking Technologies
A cookie is a unique alphanumeric identifier that websites use to help identify the number of unique visitors to a website, whether or not those visitors are repeat visitors, and the source of the visits. Cookies cannot be executed as code or used to deliver a virus and thus pose no threat to you. Servers and sites other than the one placing the cookie on your hard drive cannot read the cookie, and no personal information can be gathered by other servers from the cookie. If you prefer not to enable cookies or to disable them, you may do so through your web browser’s security settings. Please note that certain features of the Services may not be available once cookies have been disabled.
Some of GFB’s communications to you may contain a “click-through URL” which links to content on the Services. When you click one of these URLs, it passes information through GFB’s web server before you arrive at the destination web page. GFB tracks this click-through data to help determine interest in particular products and measure the effectiveness of our communications. If you prefer not to be tracked, simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in e-mails you receive from GFB.
Gofobo may also use web beacons or pixel tags, which are tiny invisible graphic images, in the Services. Web beacons and pixel tags may be used by GFB to count users who have visited its webpages and for related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity).
(c) Different Devices
If you use different devices (i.e. your smart phone, laptop, and/or home computer) to access the Services, we may be provided with and collect device-specific information, including your hardware model, operating system version, browser type, unique device identifiers, phone number, and mobile network information.
USE OF INFORMATION.
We will display your personal information on your profile and elsewhere on the site, according to the preferences you set in your account, where may be seen by other members or nonmembers. Members’ full names are never directly revealed to other members. As with any online service, we encourage users to think carefully about what personal information they will disclose on their profile.
We may use your information, such as your age, ZIP code or IP address, in aggregate form to statistically analyze site usage and customize our site’s content, layout and services. The resulting information will allow us to improve our site and better understand and serve our users. We may provide informational reports with our business partners who are involved with providing free content to GFB members.
If you elect to OPT-IN to receive additional promotional information from GFB during the registration process, we may provide your personally identifiable information to other businesses, companies and organizations with which we partner or which we carefully select to offer you products, services and promotions through our Web site, mobile app, email, or offline.
Also, if you elect to OPT-IN to participate in any sweepstakes, surveys, questionnaires or other events during your visit to our Web site, the rules or terms and conditions for those events may indicate that your personally identifiable information will be shared with third parties. By choosing to elect to OPT-IN to participate and submitting your personally identifiable information with respect to such events, you consent to disclosure of your personally identifiable information to such third parties.
In the event that GFB or some of our assets are sold or transferred or used as security, or to the extent we engage in business negotiations with our business partners, the information collected on the Services may be transferred or shared with third parties as part of that transaction or negotiation. We may also provide information or provide access to information to any of our affiliated businesses or to our business partners.
On rare occasions, we may disclose specific information without your consent and without notice to you as required to comply with laws and regulations, or to comply with court orders, subpoenas, or lawful discovery requests. Information collected from you may also be used to investigate security breaches or otherwise cooperate with authorities. We may also share information with companies assisting in fraud protection or investigation.
We may disclose information about you without your consent and without notice to you as required to enforce or apply the Terms and Conditions or other agreements. GFB may disclose aggregated information about you. This data cannot be attributed to any specific individual. We may disclose aggregated customer data to our affiliates and to other third parties for lawful purposes.
By default, we will send you weekly updates of various site information including new movies, screenings, sweepstakes, contests, events and a variety of transactional e-mails, such as when users post comments to your profile and the occasional site announcement.
You have full control regarding which of these e-mails you want to receive. To change your options, simply click “My Account” at the top right corner of any page and then select ” Edit Profile.”
Some e-mails that are sent, such as “Screening Updates” and ” Event Reminder,” are automatically generated because you have participated in a contest and/or downloaded a ticket for a movie screening. By participating in a contest or downloading a free ticket, you agree to receive these e-mails even if you have previously opted out of our e-mail list.
REFER A FRIEND.
Many of our events will provide a refer-a-friend feature that allows you to forward the event information to friends. When you choose to refer a friend, we will send a single preformatted e-mail to the addresses you enter indicating that it is a message from you.
Inviting friends to Flixxster is always completely optional. When you choose to invite friends, we will send an e-mail to the addresses you enter, indicating that it is a message from you. We will share your name and e-mail address with anyone you invite so that they know who the invitation is coming from. If a friend does not respond to the initial invitation after a little while, we will send up to two reminder messages on your behalf.
For your convenience, Flixxster may offer the ability to import e-mail addresses from common address books such as Hotmail/Yahoo!/Gmail/AOL. If you choose to use this feature, we will access your address book using the log-in details that you provide. We access your address book only once to retrieve your friends’ information so that you may select whom to invite. We do not store your log-in details nor do we use them for any other purpose than to retrieve your contacts. We never send invitations to contacts you do not explicitly select, and your invitations are the only e-mail we will ever send to your friends unless they register to join the site.
If you are under age eighteen, you should use the Services only with parental guidance.
The Services are not aimed at or intended for children under the age of thirteen. We do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of thirteen through the Services. If we obtain actual knowledge that we have inadvertently collected personal information relating to a child under the age of thirteen, we will delete that information from our records. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under the age of thirteen, please contact us at [email protected].

CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits California residents who are users of the Services to request from us once a year, free of charge, information about the personal information Flixxster disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year (if any). If applicable, this information would include a list of the categories of personal information that was shared and the names and addresses of all third parties with which Flixxster shared information in the immediately preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to us at [email protected]. “Do Not Track” is a privacy setting that you may set in your web browsers.

You may also send us an e-mail at [email protected] to correct or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. If you request that your profile information be deleted or if you unsubscribe from communications, we may maintain information about your inquiries for future service and recordkeeping purposes. In some circumstances, a change in or withdrawal of consent may severely limit our ability to provide you information, products, or services. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.
