This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that SML does not own or control or to people that SML does not employ or manage.
Collection of your Personal Information
SML collects personal information, such as your e-mail address and name and may in the future ask for your home or work address or telephone number so as to keep track of game play, your personal score, league settings and the like. SML may also collect demographic information, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites. Information collected by SML may be combined with information obtained from other SML services and other companies.
If you choose to sign up for a paid subscription service at some point in the future, we will collect additional personal information, including your credit card number and billing address.
SML also collects certain information about your computer hardware and software. This information may include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by SML for the operation of a service, to maintain quality of a service, and to provide general statistics regarding the use of the SML site and services.
SML keeps track of the pages our customers visit within SML, in order to determine what game play, features, settings and content is most popular. This data is also used by SML to deliver customized content and advertising to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
Some SML services, request that you create a social nickname, which is the name you will be known by to others in those public places. You may select a different social nickname at any time. Please keep in mind that if you disclose personal information through SML services, or other public online forums, this information may be collected and used by others. By way of example, publicly accessible areas of the service would potentially include SML Chat or SML Message Boards that are open to both members and visitors. SML cautions you against giving out personal information to strangers online, which they may use for illegal or harmful purposes.
SML will give you the option of enter additional email addresses so as as to invite others you know to play Summer Movie League and explore the web site. In these instances, SML merely acts as a conduit for the communication. The email will appear to come from your email address and SML will not keep these emails.
SML encourages you to review the privacy policies of Web sites you choose to link to from SML so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. SML is not responsible for the privacy policies or other content on Web sites outside of the SML Web site.
Use of your Personal Information
SML and its operational service partners collect and use your personal information to operate SML and deliver the games, content and services you have requested. SML does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
SML also uses your personal information to inform you of other products or services available from SML and its affiliates. SML may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
SML does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. SML may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your personal information (e-mail, name, etc) is not transferred to the third party.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. We will only provide those companies the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Personal information collected on this site may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which SML or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using this site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.
Control Promotional E-mail
You may stop the delivery of promotional e-mail from SML by following the specific instructions in the e-mail you receive. The instructions explain how to stop receiving such e-mails.
There are some SML services that send out periodic e-mails informing you of technical service issues, product surveys, new feature announcements and news about SML products and services. You will not be able to unsubscribe to these mailings, as they are considered a part of the service you have chosen.
Security of your Personal Information
SML is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, that are located in controlled facilities. If and when we transmit highly confidential information (such as a credit card number) over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. Please recognize and remember that no data transmission over the Internet, or by any other public network, can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Although we make reasonable efforts safeguard your personal information once we receive it, we cannot warrant the security of information you transmit to us.
SML uses "cookies" to collect information from you in order to help personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a Web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you register with SML sites or services, a cookie helps SML to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to SML, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the SML features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the SML services or Web sites you visit.
Use of Web Beacons
SML Web pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons - sometimes called single-pixel gifs - that allow SML to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. SML may include Web beacons in promotional e-mail messages in order to count how many messages have been opened and acted upon. Web beacons are not used to access your personal information on the SML network of sites and services; they are a technique we use to compile aggregated statistics about SML Web site usage.
Web beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the Web beacon resides. SML Web pages may also contain Web beacons placed there by third parties to help determine the effectiveness of our joint promotional or advertising campaigns.
Use of Third Party Ad Networks
The majority of the online banner advertisements you see on SML Web pages are displayed by SML.
In addition, SML allows other companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, to display advertisements on SML Web pages. Some of these ad networks may place a persistent cookie on your computer. Doing this allows the ad network to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement. In this way, ad networks may compile information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw their advertisements and determine which ads are clicked on. This information allows an ad network to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. SML does not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed by the third-party ad servers or ad networks.
SML maintains relationships with a number of the third-party ad networks. Those ad networks that use persistent cookies may offer you a way to opt out of ad targeting. You may find more information at the Web site of either the individual ad network or the Network Advertising Initiative.
If you have questions regarding this Policy, you should contact SML via the contact information noted below.
