International transfers of personal information

On the basis that the Internet is a global environment, using the Internet to collect and process personal data necessarily involves the transmission of data across international boundaries. Therefore, by browsing the Website and communicating electronically with us, you acknowledge our processing of your personal information on this basis.

Linking to other websites

The Website contains hyperlinks to websites owned and operated by third parties.  These third party websites are outside our control and not covered by this Privacy Policy. These websites have their own privacy policies and we urge you to review them. They will govern the use of personal information you submit whilst visiting these websites.  We do not accept any responsibility or liability for the privacy practices of such third party websites and your use of such websites is at your own risk.

IP Addresses

We (or our business partners) study visitor trends since we are interested in the successful dissemination of information through the Website. Our server (or the server of one of our business partners) creates log files of information such as the Internet Protocol (IP) address from your network, what pages were explored and the length of your visit.  Analysis software is used to generate reports and this helps us to learn more about how we can enhance your experience with the Website.  This information is not used to develop a personal profile of you. 

An IP address is a number designated for your computer by your Internet service provider to provide access to the Internet.  Generally, an IP address will change every time your computer connects to the Internet.  However, if you have a broadband connection, it is possible that the IP address that we may gather may contain information that may be deemed identifiable.  This could occur due to the fact that by using certain broadband connections, your IP address would not change and could be associated with your personal computer. We may use your IP address to gather aggregate information on use for marketing and strategy purposes. But we will only be able to identify you individually if we have the means of linking the IP address to you as a particular user. This usually requires access to additional information which we do not seek.

Your right to see your personal information

You have the right to request a copy of the personal information that we hold on you and to have any errors in that information corrected.  We charge a small fee for such requests.  Please address your request to Data Protection Manager at privacy@hammerfilms.com.  We will use reasonable efforts to supply, correct or delete personal information about you on our files.

Security

We have taken steps to ensure that all personally identifiable information that we collect is secure, including limiting the number of people who can access this information and using electronic security systems.
