We may track your movement within the Site, the pages from which you were referred, access times and browser types. We only use this information in aggregate to gauge the effectiveness of our Site, track information for statistical purposes and to improve the products and services we provide and do not link that information to you personally.  We store information that we collect through cookies, log files, clear gifs, and/or third party sources for instance to verify your address or update your information and to create a “profile” of your preferences.  We tie your personally identifiable information to information in the profile, in order to improve the content of the Site for you.  A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies on this Site. We use session ID cookies and persistent cookies.  We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our Site. A session ID cookie expires when you close you browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” file.  Persistent cookies are used to differentiate users of our Site from subscribers of our service to customize the content of certain sections of the Site and enable us to track and target the interests of our subscribers and to enhance the experience on our Site. If you reject cookies, you may still use our Site, but your ability to use some areas of our Site may be limited and you may not be able to use certain features of the Site.
 
Children's Privacy.  MovieHatch does not encourage participation or visitation by children. Visitors who are known to be under the age of 14 are prohibited from becoming registered users. MovieHatch does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 14.

When you Register.  When you register with MovieHatch to create a profile page you can create your own profile. Your profile information, as well as your screen name, and anything you post are displayed to other registered users to the Site. Your real name is never displayed on the Site (unless you use it as your screen name). By creating a profile that information is visible to other registered users of the Site. By posting content or communicating with other registered users, that information is visible to other registered users of the Site.  Be aware that if you create a profile or actively comment, blog, or post content or participate in chat rooms or similar community forums accessible on the Site, then any personal information you provide will be accessible to all registered users. You should also be aware that any information that is made public on the Site may be searchable by other search engines. In addition, even if that content is later removed from this Site, it may still be stored in other computers of people who visited the Site, and removal of that information from this Site will not remove it from those other computers. Therefore, exercise caution when posting personal information to the Site.

User Content Posted Online.  As a registered user, you can share personal content, such as your profile, videos, photos and blogs (‘User Content”) and can participate in community chat rooms and other community forums. Please be aware that by using any of these features, your personally identifiable information may be accessible to other registered users to the Site, and MovieHatch has no control over how those users may use your personally identifiable information. We have the right, but not the obligation, to monitor any activity and content associated with the public and private forums and interactive areas on our Site. Please review our Terms of Use for more information regarding your appropriate use of these areas and for the requirements and prohibitions on User Content.

Third Party Links.  We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies only to information collected by our Site.

Advertisements.  We may from time to time use various outside ad-serving companies to serve advertisements on our Site. In the process of serving advertisements, the ad serving companies may place a cookie in your browser's cookie file and may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements on this Site and other websites about goods and services that may be of interest to you. By delivering ads on our site, the ad-server is able to record what ads a user -- identified by the unique cookie -- has seen, and what pages the user was viewing when the ads were delivered. This web usage information is combined with other ad delivery information the ad-server has collected from your visits to our Site and other sites not affiliated with MovieHatch.  This non-personally identifiable information is used as part of the ad-serving process for reporting and to select and direct the ads you see online at our Site and other sites not affiliated with MovieHatch.

Surveys or Promotions.  From time to time we may provide you the opportunity to participate in sweepstakes or other promotions on our Site, which might be sponsored or conducted by a third party.  If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these promotions is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information.  The requested information typically includes contact information. If there is a third party sponsor involved please make sure to review that party’s privacy policy.
