Films Privacy Code
Protecting the privacy and confidentiality of Personal Information has always been an important aspect of our business operations. As a distributor of filmed entertainment, the proper collection and use of Personal Information is fundamental. We have implemented a complementary protocol we call our Privacy Code, which applies to any individuals about whom we collect, use or disclose personal information. It also sets out our respective rights and obligations as they relate to privacy laws and Alliance Films' own policies.
Alliance Films’ Privacy Code informs you of our commitment to protecting Personal Information in our possession and control. It tells you the ways we ensure that Personal Information is protected.
This Privacy Code applies to all employees, individuals using our products and services and to certain persons with which Alliance Films has contracted. Each of our employees must abide by our commitment to privacy in the handling of Personal Information.
Ten Privacy Principles of the Privacy Code
Our Privacy Code includes the following ten principles, as set out in the Privacy Act:
We are Accountable
At Alliance Films, we take our commitment to securing privacy very seriously. Each employee and representative of Alliance Films is responsible for the Personal Information under his, her or its control. They are informed about the importance of privacy and are updated about our Privacy Code and related policies.
We have appointed a member of our senior management team to be Alliance Films’ Privacy Officer. Our Privacy Officer is responsible for reviewing and approving all Personal Information handling practices at Alliance Films, and ensuring that our policies and practices are up-to-date. Our Privacy Officer may be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will identify how Personal Information will be used
Whenever we collect information about you, we will explain how we intend to use it. We will limit the information we collect to what we need for those purposes, and for no other purpose. We will always seek your consent.
We will confirm your Consent
We will confirm your consent to the collection, use or disclosure of Personal Information at the time of collection or in advance. Consent may be expressed in writing or implied and, in some cases, you may provide it verbally, electronically or through your authorized representative. You will always have an opportunity to “opt-out”.
Upon request, we will explain your options regarding refusal or withdrawal of consent to the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information, and we will record and respect your written choices. Your decision to withhold particular details, however, may limit the services we are able to offer to you. Any refusal or withdrawal of consent may be subject to any overriding legal requirements or commitments.
We will limit the collection of Personal Information
Personal Information is collected by Alliance Films only for specific, limited purposes (see the section: “We will identify how Personal Information will be used”).
When you visit our websites, information is not collected that could identify you personally unless you choose to provide it.
We will limit Use, Disclosure and Retention
The information we request from you is used only in accordance with purposes set out and in accordance with legislative requirements. If necessary, we will seek your consent before using the information for purposes beyond the scope of your original consent.
In the case of contests and promotions, we will occasionally ask if you consent to the forwarding of Personal Information to our promotional and advertising partners. You may confirm or decline your consent.
As a function of Alliance Films fulfilling certain legal requirements, we may disclose Personal Information without consent.
We will retain Personal Information only as long as is required for the purposes we describe and as is required under law. Once Personal Information is no longer required (or if you have opted-out or withdrawn your consent), it is our practice that it is destroyed, deleted or made anonymous.
We will strive to have accurate records
All decisions we make involving Personal Information are based on accurate, complete and up-to-date information. We rely on you, however, to disclose all material information and to inform us of any relevant changes or corrections as they may relate to you.
We encourage you to contact us as soon as possible, and we will make the appropriate reasonable corrections or amendments, upon receipt of appropriate evidence.
We will protect Personal Information
We will protect Personal Information with appropriate safeguards and security measures. We utilize a combination of physical, administrative and electronic measures to ensure Personal Information is adequately protected on a day-to-day basis, for storage and disposal.
Access to Personal Information is limited to those authorized by Alliance Films. Alliance Films’ computer systems are password-secured or firewall protected and constructed in such a way that only authorized individuals may access these systems. To safeguard against unauthorized access to Personal Information via the Internet, you may be required to sign-on and go through a security protocol.
If you send us an e-mail message that includes Personal Information, we will use that information to respond to your inquiry. Please note that email is not necessarily secure against interception.
We will keep you informed
We want to keep you informed. Our Privacy Code is transparent and it is made available to the public at http://www.alliancefilms.com/.
We will provide you with Access
We will provide you access to the information we retain about you upon written request, satisfactory identification and proof of entitlement. We will respond to you within thirty (30) days of receiving your proper written request.
In some very limited circumstances, we may deny you access to Personal Information. If we deny your individual request for access to your Personal Information, we will advise you in writing of the reason for the refusal, subject to any legal requirements.
We will be in Compliance
