David Lynch Foundation Television (DLF.TV) Privacy Policy

Information we collect and why:

Sometimes DLF.TV will collect personal information that could be used to identify you (such as name, email, address, phone number). This information may be required when you register for one of our competitions, and is used to contact you as appropriate (as in the case of winning a prize), or to send you news updates via email only. In some cases DLF.TV may collect more detailed information, such as a student identification number, for the purposes of verifying eligibility for a competition. DLF.TV may combine information about you that we have with information obtained from business partners or other companies. When you register with DLF.TV and sign in to our services, you are not anonymous to us. DLF.TV automatically receives and records information from your computer and browser, including your IP address, DLF.TV cookie information, software and hardware attributes, and the page you request. DLF.TV may use information for the following general purposes: to customize the advertising and content you see, fulfill your requests for products and services, improve our services, contact you, conduct research, and provide anonymous reporting for internal and external clients.

Children’s Privacy:

DLF.TV does not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 for marketing purposes, but because some information is collected electronically, it can appear to be the personal information of a DLF.TV user over the age of 13, and will be treated as such by this privacy policy. If a child under 13 submits personal information to DLF.TV and we learn that that personal information is the information of a child under 13, we will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible.

Disclosure and sharing of your information:
What we do with your information –

DLF.TV does not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people or non-affiliated companies except to provide products or services you’ve requested, when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances:
DLF.TV provides the information to trusted partners who work on behalf of or with DLF.TV under confidentiality agreements. These companies may use your personal information to help DLF.TV communicate with you about offers from DLF.TV and our marketing partners. However, these companies do not have any independent right to share this information.
DLF.TV will respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
We believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of DLF.TV’s terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.
DLF.TV will transfer information about you if DLF.TV is acquired by or merged with another company. In this event, DLF.TV will notify you before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

For security purposes, we will encrypt any usernames, passwords, and other user or member account-related data that we store in such cookies. In the case of sites and services that do not use a user or member ID, the cookie will contain a unique identifier. We may allow our authorized service providers to serve cookies from our website to allow them to assist us in various activities, such as doing analysis and research on the effectiveness of our site, content and advertising.

You may delete or decline cookies by changing your browser settings. (Click “Help” in the toolbar of most browsers for instructions.) If you do so, some of the features and services of our website may not function properly.

We may allow third-parties, including advertising companies, and ad networks, to display advertisements on our site.

This information allows them to deliver targeted advertisements and gauge their effectiveness.

Web Beacons:

Web beacons (also known as clear gifs, pixel tags or web bugs) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users or to access cookies.
