Golden Vision Films
Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to Golden Vision Films (GVF). So we've developed a Privacy Policy that covers how we collect, use, disclose, transfer, and store your information. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our privacy practices. This Privacy Policy applies to all of the products, projects, services and websites offered by GVF or its subsidiaries or affiliated companies.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

Personal information is data that can be used to uniquely identify or contact a single person. You may be asked to provide your personal information anytime you are in contact with GVF or a GVF affiliated company. GVF and its affiliates may share this personal information with each other and use it consistent with this Privacy Policy. They may also combine it with other information to provide and improve our products, services, content, and advertising. Here are some examples of the types of personal information GVF may collect and how we may use it.

What personal information we collect

  • When you create a GVF associated account, purchase a product, download a file, brows a GVF website, or participate in any other project or service associated with GVF we may collect a variety of information, including but not limited to your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, contact preferences, date of birth, emergency contact information, physical identifiers, and credit card information.

How we use your personal information

  • The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on GVF's latest product announcements, software updates, events and upcoming projects. It also helps us to improve our services, content, and advertising. If you don't want to be on our mailing list, you can opt out anytime by following the links provided in every email we send.
  • We also use personal information to help us develop, deliver, and improve our products, services, content, and advertising.
  • From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about purchases and changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with GVF, you may not opt out of receiving these communications.
  • We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve GVF's products, services, and customer communications.
  • If you enter into a sweepstake, contest, or similar promotion we may use the information you provide to administer those programs.

Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information

We also collect non-personal information - data in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non- personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:
  • We may collect information such as occupation, language, zip code, area code, unique device identifier, location, and the time zone where a GVF product or service is used so that we can better understand customer behavior and improve our products, services, and advertising.
  • We also may collect information regarding customer activities on our website, or other services. This information is aggregated and used to help us provide more useful information to our customers and to understand which parts of our website, products, and services are of most interest. Aggregated data is considered non-personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

Cookies and Other Technologies

GVF's website, online services, interactive applications, email messages, and advertisements may use "cookies" and other technologies such as pixel tags and web beacons. These technologies help us better understand user behavior, tell us which parts of our website people have visited, and facilitate and measure the effectiveness of advertisements and web searches. We treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as non-personal information. However, to the extent that Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law, we also treat these identifiers as personal information. Similarly, to the extent that non-personal information is combined with personal information, we treat the combined information as personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

As is true of most websites, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the site, to learn about user behavior on the site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. GVF may use this information in our marketing and advertising services.

In some of our email messages, we use a "click-through URL" linked to content on the GVF website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages.

Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read, and they tell us whether mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.

Disclosure to Third Parties

At times GVF may make certain personal information available to strategic partners that work with GVF to provide products and services, or that help GVF market to customers. Personal information will only be shared by GVF to provide or improve our products, services and advertising; it will not be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes.

Service Providers

GVF shares personal information with companies who provide services such as information processing, extending credit, fulfilling customer orders, delivering products to you, managing and enhancing customer data, providing customer service, assessing your interest in our products and services, and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are obligated to protect your information and may be located wherever GVF operates.

Others

It may be necessary - by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence - for GVF to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.
We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.

Protection of Personal Information

GVF takes precautions - including administrative, technical, and physical measures - to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.

Integrity and Retention of Personal Information

GVF makes it easy for you to keep your personal information accurate, complete, and up to date. We will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.

Third-Party Sites and Services

GVF websites, products, applications, and services may contain links to third-party websites, products, and services. Our products and services may also use or offer products or services from third parties - for example, purchasing products through Paypal or Google Checkout. Information collected by third parties, which may include such things as location data, contact details, address, credit card information or other personal information is governed by their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices of those third parties.

Our Companywide Commitment to Your Privacy

To make sure your personal information is secure, we communicate our privacy and security guidelines to GVF employees and strictly enforce privacy safeguards within the company.

Privacy Questions
