Privacy Policy

Welcome to CineStyle™, presented by the Technicolor CineStyle™ division of Technicolor Creative Services USA, Inc. (the “Company”).

This Privacy Policy describes how the Company (“we”) collect, use and share the personal information which you provide to us in connection with your use of CineStyle, which is comprised of the CineStyle Color Assist Tool (“Software”) and the technicolorcinestlyle.com public website (“Site”). It also describes our relationships with certain third parties that provide services in connection with CineStyle.

Information We Collect

To provide and facilitate your use of CineStyle, we collect, use and maintain records of your personal information, such as your name, postal address, email address, telephone number, user name, password, field of work and a personal access key that allows you to receive the Software. You may browse the Site without providing this registration information, but you must register to download the CineStyle Software. We use a third party service for processing payments, so we do not collect or maintain your payment information.

The Site and Software automatically collect certain information from your computer, using technologies such as cookies, log files, and web beacons. This information includes technical information about the device that you use to access CineStyle, your IP address or device identifier, browser type and other system preferences, times and dates of your use of CineStyle, and, if you consent, your geolocation information available from your mobile device. We use a third-party tracking service, Google Analytics, to collect and analyze data on users’ navigation within CineStyle and to perform statistical, demographic and marketing analysis of this information for product development purposes. This information may also be used to allow our advertisers to select advertising of interest to CineStyle users, as discussed under “Network Advertising” below. Click here http://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html for more information about how Google Analytics handles this data and how you can install a browser add-on to opt out of this information collection.

Cookies. In order to enhance usability, many sites ask your web browser to create a small text file on your computer that contains information about the user’s activities and preference settings a unique, anonymous bit of data, and store the file in a directory on your computer. These files are often referred to as cookies, and act as a memory to improve your experience while interacting online. We and our service providers use cookies to monitor frequency of use and usage within CineStyle, and to generate statistical analyses, improve our services, create new features, fix bugs, and more accurately meet users’ preferences. For example, we may use click-through monitoring to see who selects different features within CineStyle or to compare the geographical locations from which CineStyle is accessed. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can set your browser to refuse a cookie or set your browser to alert you when cookie has been set. Some CineStyle features may be activated by the presence of a cookie and, if you choose to refuse cookies, particular features of CineStyle may not be available to you. You can find out how to disable/enable browser cookies by clicking on the “Manage Cookies” section of the Interactive Advertising Bureau website at http://www.allaboutcookies.org/. This Privacy Policy covers only the cookies that we control and does not cover the use of cookies set by third parties.

Log Files. We and our service providers gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes IP addresses and device identifiers, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data, which can be used to administer CineStyle, track users’ navigation within CineStyle, and gather demographic information about our user community.

Pixel tags (Clear Gifs, Web Beacons, or Web Bugs). We and our service providers may sometimes employ pixel tags (also known as clear gifs, web beacons, or web bugs) to help us measure which CineStyle content and features are most effective. Pixel tags are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the selections made by users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s device, pixel tags are embedded invisibly in images as they are displayed. Pixel tags can recognize certain types of information on your browser, record the IP address of your device, whether and when you view a page or email message, and the address of the page from which the pixel tag was viewed. We may use pixel tags in our emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and marketing efforts.

We link this automatically-collected cookie, log file, and pixel tag data to the other information that we maintain about you.

We may collect additional information from you during your use of CineStyle, including voluntary comments and feedback that you may submit to CineStyle or a CineStyle users’ forum, or other information that may be requested at the time it is needed for a particular CineStyle feature.

How We Use Your Information

The personal information we collect may be used for the following purposes: enabling your access to the Software; tailoring your CineStyle experience in accordance with your preferences and settings; contacting you in connection with your use of CineStyle, to respond to your requests, or to send promotional communications; managing the CineStyle service; conducting research or analyses of user behavior; generating aggregate data and usage statistics; conducting advertising and marketing programs; troubleshooting technical or security issues; complying with legal and/or regulatory requirements; protecting and/or enforcing the Terms of Use, our rights or the rights or safety of third parties; safeguarding the privacy and security of information; deterring and detecting fraud or improper use of CineStyle; and other purposes as may be described at the time the information is collected.

Promotional Communications from CineStyle

We may use your information to send you periodic service updates and promotional or marketing information relating to CineStyle or other products or services. We may also use your information to send you information or offers on behalf of our sponsors, partners and advertisers. If you do not want to receive these communications, please let us know by sending your opt-out request to us at one of the address provided below under “Contact Us.” In addition, you may opt-out of receiving further promotional email communications from us by following the “unsubscribe” instructions located near the bottom of promotional emails that we send.

Network Advertising

We may display advertisements to you when you use CineStyle, including targeted advertisements that we display on your device on behalf of our advertisers. When we display advertising on behalf of our sponsors and business partners, our advertisers give us an advertisement and tell us characteristics of the audience they want to reach. We use the information we maintain about you to select advertisements that best fit your profile, location, preferences and interests. This practice is known as targeted or behavioral advertising. We display the advertisement to users that best meet the criteria provided by our advertiser, without providing your personal information to the advertiser.

If you select or click on an advertisement displayed through CineStyle, you will interact with the third party whose products, sites or services are promoted. These third party advertisers may collect information from you in accordance with their own privacy policies and the laws and regulations applicable to them. These advertisers may collect the IP address associated with your device and may also use tracking technologies such as cookies or pixel tags to collect additional information about you and your use of CineStyle. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of third party advertisers, and we do not have access to or control of the cookies that they set. You should check the privacy policy of the advertiser whose ads you select to determine how it handles any information it collects from you. CineStyle does not provide a warning that you are accessing another service that may be subject to different privacy practices.

Advertisements that appear through CineStyle may be delivered to you by Internet advertising companies called "ad networks" or "network advertisers." In order to deliver ads that are relevant to you and to track the effectiveness of ads, these companies may use cookies, pixel tags, and other online tracking technologies to collect information about your use of CineStyle and your other online activity after you click on the ad, to select relevant advertising to display to you, record whether you have seen a particular ad, and to avoid sending you duplicate ads. In an effort to make your entire internet browsing experience more consistent, some cookie information from third-party vendors may be deployed as you browse the Internet within and beyond CineStyle. This information may be used to display ads to you on through other sites and services even when you are not using CineStyle. These advertising companies are subject to their own privacy policies and are not covered by this Privacy Policy. Our service provider uses Google and Turn Inc.’s advertising to deliver advertising through CineStyle.

Though cookies are anonymous and improve your browsing experience, some people may want to opt out of this service or manage how Google's use of cookies affects them. There are different ways to stop, or opt out of, behavioral advertising. You can opt out of Google’s use of cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page or the Google Ads Preferences Manager.
