How We Use Your Data
When You Visit Our Website
When you visit our website, we collect your IP address and User Agent, which identifies the type of web browser and device you use. We also log the URLs (web addresses) you visit on our site. We do this to protect our website against malicious activity, such as hacking and denial-of-service attacks.
We use two third-party services, Google Analytics and Hotjar, to collect information about how you interact with our website. Your data is anonymised and combined with that of other visitors, and neither Popcorn nor the service provider can identify you personally. If you would like to opt out of this usage of your data, see Cookies below.
The Popcorn website has social sharing links, to allow you to share Popcorn with your friends and followers on social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest. When you click one of these sharing links, the social media site will open in a new browser window. Popcorn does not have access to any content you post in that new browser window. You should view the relevant social media site’s Privacy Notice, if you have any concerns about how Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or Pinterest use your data.
When You Use Our App
When you use the Popcorn app for iPhone, we collect your IP address and information about your device such as the iPhone model. We do this in order to give you the best possible experience in the app, for example by optimising the images and videos to fit your phone’s display size.
We use a third-party service, Amplitude, to collect information about how you interact with the app. We do this to learn from how our users use the app, and make improvements to the app. Your data is anonymised and combined with that of other app users, and neither Popcorn nor the service provider can identify you personally.
When you tap to “Watch” a movie, you will be redirected to the iTunes Store via a third-party affiliate network. Popcorn receives aggregated information from the affiliate network about the types of product purchased from iTunes (e.g. Movie or TV show) and about the countries where transactions took place. However neither Popcorn nor the affiliate network can use this information to identify you personally.
When You Contact Us
When you contact us by email, through social media, by letter, or through the third-party service Typeform, you may provide us with your name, email address, social media handle or correspondence address, and any other information you choose. We store this information only for the purposes of providing customer service and support. We never use your contact information for direct marketing.
Unless you provide specific instructions to retain or delete your data, we will automatically erase any information you send us after a period of time, in accordance with our Data Retention Policy.
Sharing Your Data
We do not sell any of your personal data to any third party.
We do share some data in a secure manner with our service providers, such as Google Analytics, Hotjar, Amplitude and Typeform, as necessary to help us run our business. These data processors can act only on Popcorn’s instructions and cannot use your data for any other purpose.
We may securely share your data with a third party under certain circumstances:
- if we are under a duty to disclose your personal data in order to comply with a legal obligation or to fulfil contractual obligations with you;
- if we are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data about our customers will be transferred to the acquirer.
Where We Store Your Data
We primarily store your data within the European Union.
Some data is transferred outside the EU by our data processors under appropriate safeguards, including the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework. Popcorn periodically reviews its data processors and maintains written Data Processing Agreements to ensure that the necessary safeguards are in place to protect your data.
How Long We Keep Your Data
Our Data Retention Policy, which is available upon request, defines how long we keep different categories of data before permanently erasing them.
You have a right to request that we delete your data at any time (see Your Rights, below). However sometimes we need to keep data to meet legal or regulatory requirements and prevent fraud and abuse.
You have a right to be informed about how your data is used, which is why we provide this Privacy Notice. If we make any major changes to how we use your data, we will endeavour to inform you beforehand.
You have a right to access the personal data we hold about you and the right to rectification if any of the personal data we hold about you is incorrect.
You have the right to erasure (also known as the “right to be forgotten”), the right to restrict processing, and the right to object to processing of your data in some circumstances. For example, if you have previously sent us personal information by email, you have a right to request that we delete those emails.
You have the right to data portability, in that you can request that we transfer your data to you or to another service provider in a suitable format.
Finally, you have a right to complain to your data protection regulator, which in the UK is the Information Commissioner’s Office.
