What type of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) does SoCal collect from you and how do we use it?
SoCal does not require you to provide us with any PII. Unless you provide your personally identifiable information (“PII”) to SoCal through the Website, we will not collect any PII from you. However, in order to use certain functionality (including, for example, to subscribe to our newsletters or enter projects) on the Website, to participate in promotions offered from time to time or to purchase products through the Website, you will need to provide certain PII to us. We will use PII collected from you only for the purposes of executing requests made by you. We may also release your PII to third parties if we believe such release is necessary to comply with the law (e.g., a legal process or a statutory authorization), to apply or enforce our customer agreements, to protect our rights or property, if we reasonably believe that a danger to any person requires disclosure of such PII, or as part of a corporate reorganization, consolidation, merger, or sale of substantially all of the assets of SoCal.
Under what circumstances may we share your PII?
SoCal will share your PII with other entities who work on our behalf or with us. These entities may use your PII to help fulfill your requests in connection with the Website and to help us communicate with you about different resources offered as part of the Website. Also, our parent, subsidiary and affiliate companies, or entities to which any of our assets, products, sites or operations may be transferred, will be able to use your PII.
On occasion, SoCal may share your PII with third parties for marketing purposes. If you would rather us not share your PII with any third party for direct marketing purposes, please either (1) do not submit PII to SoCal through the Website or (2) indicate your desire for us not to share your PII with third parties for direct marketing purposes by submitting such a request in writing (an “Opt-Out Request”) to us at: SoCal Independent Film Festival, 19744 Beach Blvd. #221, Huntington Beach, CA, 92648, Attn: Legal or by email, with “Unsubscribe” in the subject line, at newsletter @ socalfilmfest.com.
If we receive your Opt-Out Request after having shared your PII with a third party, SoCal may not be able to control use of such PII by such third party (or any other party to whom such third party may have transferred your PII). In such an event you agree that SoCal shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for damages or loss caused or alleged to be caused in connection with the use of such PII by any such third party or resulting from any such transfer or disposition. If you are concerned about SoCal sharing your PII with third parties or otherwise transferring or disposing your PII, you should not provide your PII to SoCal.
We may also release your PII to third parties if we believe such release is necessary (i) to comply with the law (e.g., a legal process or a statutory authorization), (ii) to apply or enforce our user agreements, (iii) to protect our rights or property, (iv) as part of a corporate reorganization, consolidation, merger, or sale of substantially all of the assets of SoCal, or (v) if we reasonably believe that a danger to any person requires disclosure of such PII.
