Solarity Production Studios LLC and each of its affiliated companies (collectively, “Solarity,” “we,” or “us”) are committed to respecting the privacy rights of visitors to our websites (each the “Site”). While you are visiting the Site, we may ask you to provide information that personally identifies you (“Personal Information”) for the purposes of interacting with the Site or to allow you to submit additional information.
We will take measures so that the Personal Information you submit to us remains private and is used only for the purposes as set forth herein. To further the protection of your Personal Information, we have adopted a set of information management guidelines (outlined below) to describe the Personal Information we collect about you, why we collect it, how we use it, and when we share it with third parties.
Type of Information Collected
We collect only Personal Information that you submit to us, including but not limited to personal data (for example including, without limitation, your name, mailing address, and email address), when you request further information or wish to submit certain information to us. You are not obligated to provide us with this information, although it may be necessary in order to fulfill your request or allow you to submit additional information. Additionally, we may collect aggregate information about users of the Site. Aggregate information includes data about usage of the Site, including traffic patterns, number of Site visits, use of particular services on the Site, etc. This information is not identifiable to individual Site users.
Use and Sharing of Personal Information
We do not sell or otherwise disclose information about you, except as described here. We may share the information you provide with companies affiliated with us. We also may share information provided by our Site visitors with service providers we have retained to perform services on our behalf. These service providers are required to use or disclose the information only as necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements. Also, we may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law or legal process, (ii) to law enforcement authorities or other government officials, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity.
Also, we may share aggregate, non-personally identifiable information with our business affiliates and other affiliated third parties (e.g., the number of users who have visited the Site on a specific day, etc.). We may also match aggregated user information with third-party data and disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to potential advertisers, affiliates, and other third parties and for other lawful purposes.
Solarity collects data to operate effectively and provide you the best experiences with our services. You provide some of this data directly, such as when you create a personal account. We get some of it by recording how you interact with our services by, for example, using technologies like cookies, and receiving error reports or usage data from software running on your device.
We also obtain data from third parties (including other companies). For example, we supplement the data we collect by purchasing demographic data from other companies. We also use services from other companies to help us determine a location based on your IP address in order to customize certain services to your location. The data we collect depends on the services and features you use.
Our website uses the data we collect for three basic purposes: to operate our business and provide (including improving and personalizing) the services we offer, to send communications, including promotional communications, and to display advertising. In carrying out these purposes, we combine data we collect through the various website services you use to give you a more seamless, consistent and personalized experience. However, to enhance privacy, we have built in technological and procedural safeguards designed to prevent certain data combinations. For example, we store data we collect from you when you are unauthenticated (not signed in) separately from any account information that directly identifies you, such as your name, email address, or phone number.
We do not specifically collect information about children, but are concerned about the safety of children and their use of the Internet. Therefore, in accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, we will not knowingly request or solicit personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of thirteen (13) without prior verifiable parental consent. In the event that we receive actual knowledge that we have collected such Personal Information without the requisite and verifiable parental consent, we will delete that information from our database as quickly as is practical. The Site is not intended for use by persons under the age of 13 without parental consent.
We contract with one or more third parties to maintain and host the Site. Therefore, any information you submit, including Personal Information, shall be placed and stored on a computer server maintained by this third party. Your use of the Site and any provision of Personal Information you submit to the Site constitutes your acknowledgment that such information or content could pass through and may be stored in servers outside our control. You agree that we have no liability or responsibility for any such pass-through or storage of same.
Effective Date and Changes
Right to Access, Correct, and Delete Data and to Object to Data Processing
Our customers have the right to access, correct, and delete personal data relating to them, and to object to the processing of such data, by submitting a written request at any time. Solarity makes every effort to put in place suitable precautions to safeguard the security and privacy of personal data, and to prevent it from being altered, corrupted, destroyed or accessed by unauthorized third parties. However, Solarity does not control each and every risk related to the use of the Internet, and therefore warns the Site users of the potential risks involved in the functioning and use of the Internet.
The Site may include links to other web sites or other internet sources.
