Privacy Policy

Effective: October 10, 2011
Last revised: January 3, 2020

Our Commitment To Privacy

Movie Mars, Inc. (“Movie Mars”) knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice to explaining our information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. By visiting MovieMars.com and/or our stores (including, but not limited to those on Ebay.com and Amazon.com) (“Affiliated Stores”), you are accepting the practices described in this notice. This privacy notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the MovieMars.com website and through our Affiliated Stores (collectively “Platform”).

For purposes of this Policy, the term “personal data” may be used interchangeably with “personal information” and means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.

An “identifiable natural person” is an individual who can be identified, directly or indirectly, by reference to an identifier such as:

  • A name (e.g. first names (given names), middle names, and/or last names (surnames));
  • A physical address or mailing address including street name; city or municipality; state or region; postal code; and country;
  • Online contact information such as an e-mail address;
  • A username or handle that functions as online contact information;
  • A telephone number;
  • A social security number or other identification number;
  • A persistent online identifier that can be used to recognize a user over time and across different websites or online services;
  • One or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity of that natural person, including, for example, a person’s height, weight, or hair color;
  • A photograph, video, or audio file, where such file contains a person’s image or voice;
  • Geolocation information; or
  • Anything else about the individual that is collected online and stored by an operator in personally identifiable form.
We are the data controller for the purpose of data protection law with respect to your personal data collected and used through your use of the Platform. This is because we dictate the purposes for which your personal data are used and how we use your personal data.

Information We Collect

The information we learn from customers helps us to personalize and continually improve your shopping experience with us. The type of personal information collected may include your name, address, telephone number, email address, and Ebay ID. We do not collect any information on customer credit/debit cards.

There is certain information that we (or our service providers on our behalf) collect automatically as the result of your use of the Platform or through the use of web analytics services as described in the section on “Cookies” below. This information includes but is not limited to:
the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the device from which you access the Platform (this can sometimes be used to derive the country or city from which you are accessing the Platform),
the sites that you visited or services you accessed immediately prior to visiting the Platform,
the specific actions that you take on the Platform, any search terms that you may enter, the time, frequency, and duration of usage, your browser types and operating systems, the nature of the device from which you are accessing the Platform, for example, whether you are accessing the Platform from a personal computer or from a mobile device, information collected through cookies and similar technologies, and location data.

How We Use Your Information

We use the information provided by our customers only as necessary to complete orders (including billing, shipping products, notifying customers of the status of shipments, and tracking orders), provide you customer service or technical support, and improve our Platform. We use email addresses to answer emails and to notify customers about the status of their orders. Email addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with third parties.

We may disclose or use customer identifiable information to investigate and help prevent potentially unlawful activity, or where required by law, court order, warrant, or administrative request.

We may use information that you make available to us when you interact with the Platform directly or through third-party services to show you advertising and marketing. We do not sell your information to anyone for advertising or other purposes.

How We Share Your Information

We will not share your information with any third party except as described in this Privacy Policy. We do not sell your information to anyone for advertising or other purposes. There are circumstances in which we may need to share some of the information we collect about you or the information you provide to us. For example, we may engage third-party service providers to host our Platform or to provide analytics, advertising, communication, customer support, or maintenance. These third parties may have access to certain information about you but only where this is necessary in order for those third parties to provide their services to us. Where we transfer personal data to these third parties, we require these third parties to implement appropriate organizational and technical security measures to protect against unauthorized disclosure of personal data and only to process personal data in accordance with our instructions and to the extent necessary to provide their services to us.

We may transfer your information in the event of a corporate divestiture, acquisition, merger, dissolution, or insolvency. If there is a transfer of assets, your information may be reviewed, transferred to, and acquired by a third party. The new owner or newly controlling party will, under the terms of this Privacy Policy, be permitted to use your information for the purposes and in the scope that it was supplied to us.

Except as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy, we will disclose your information if you have explicitly agreed that we may do so. We will make this clear to you at the point at which we collect or agree to disclose your information.

Cookies

This section describes use of cookies and other measurement technologies used in device, user, and network identification. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your computer, mobile phone, or other device when you visit a website. The cookie will help website providers to recognize your device the next time you visit their website. There are other similar technologies such as pixel tags (transparent graphic images placed on a web page or in an e-mail, which indicate that a page or e-mail has been viewed), web bugs (similar to pixel tags), and web storage, which are used in desktop software or mobile devices.

We use various technologies, including but not limited to session cookies (which expire once you close your Web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your device for a set period of time or until you delete them). We may use mobile device identifiers and the other measurement technologies for the purposes articulated in this Privacy Policy, for example to recognize your devices when you return to the Platform.

The information collected through such means allows us to operate the Platform, analyze how the Platform is performing, and operate certain functions of the Platform.

Many Web browsers allow you to manage your preferences. You can set your browser to refuse cookies or delete certain cookies. You may be able to manage other measurement technologies in the same way that you manage cookies using your browser’s preferences. The Platform does not observe Do Not Track signals from Web browsers. An available tool is the Network Advertising Initiative’s (NAI) Opt-Out Tool at https://www.networkadvertising.org/choices. This allows you to opt out from the use of information about your online activities for online behavioral advertising by NAI member companies.

On your mobile device, you may also have a “Limit Ad Tracking” setting (on iOS devices, go to “Settings” > “Privacy” > “Advertising” and turn on “Limit Ad Tracking”) or a setting to “Opt out of Interest-Based Ads” (on Android) which allows you to limit the use of information about your use of apps for purposes of serving ads targeted to your interests.

One of the services we use to track activity is Google Analytics by Google (Google, Inc., a company headquartered at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California, 94043, United States of America). We may use vendors, including Google, who use first-party mechanisms (such as the Google Analytics) and third-party mechanisms (such as the DoubleClick) together to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on your past visits to our Platform. Google provides tools to manage the collection and use of certain information by Google Analytics at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and by Google Analytics for Display Advertising or the Google Display Network by updating Ads Settings for Google at https://www.google.com/settings/ads.

By using this Platform, you hereby consent to the use of the cookies and other measurement technologies described above. If you do not agree with any of the terms of this Privacy Policy, including our use of cookies and other measurement technologies, you should not use the Platform.

For more information about the use of cookies and how to block them, visit https://www.allaboutcookies.org, https://www.youronlinechoices.eu/ (Europe), or https://www.aboutads.info/choices/ (United States).

Third parties, other than our service providers, do not have authorization from us to track which websites, apps, or other online services you visit prior to and after visiting the Platform. Please note, however, that we cannot control third-party tracking and there may be some third-party tracking that occurs without our consent or knowledge.

Your California Privacy Rights

Pursuant to Section 1798.83 of the California Civil Code, California residents have the right to request from a business with whom the California resident has an established business relationship: (1) What types of personal information, if any, of the California resident the business shares with third parties for direct marketing purposes of those third parties; and (2) the identities of the third parties with whom the business has shared such information in the immediately preceding calendar year.

Movie Mars does not currently share personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.

If you are a minor under the age of 18 in California, you also have the right to request and obtain removal of any content that you post on our Platform. Content includes images, videos, recordings, and text. To request removal, please send an e-mail to customerservice@movie mars.com with information to identify the content that you want removed, including the date the content was posted, a brief description of the content, and a hyperlink to the content if available. You may be required to provide additional information to verify your identity as the author of the content. We will remove the content, if doing so is technologically and practically feasible, within a reasonable amount of time.

A number of states are currently considering enacting laws similar to the California law mentioned above. If you are a resident of a state that enacts such a law, please use the contact information provided above to contact us with any questions, comments, or requests.

Your GDPR Rights

With respect to personal data that we collect or receive that is subject to the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) of the European Union (EU), our legal basis for processing such personal data depends on the type of personal data and the purpose for which we collect it. For the purposes stated in the “How We Use Your Information” section above, the relevant legal bases under the GDPR are as follows:

We process your personal data for our legitimate business interests. These interests include but are not limited to: the commercial interests of Movie Mars or a third party in providing the Platform; compliance with applicable legal and regulatory obligations and any codes of conduct; improvement and development of our business operations and service offerings or those of a third party; or protection of our business, employees, users, or third parties.

In certain instances, we may process your personal data pursuant to a contract between you and us (e.g. if you enter into an agreement with us relating to your use of the Platform).

Where appropriate, we may ask for your consent. If we rely on your consent to process personal data, you have a right to withdraw such consent.

If your personal data is protected by the GDPR, you have certain data protection rights described below with respect to the personal data collected and used by Movie Mars. These rights may apply only in certain circumstances and are subject to certain exemptions. You can exercise these rights using the contact details contained within this Privacy Policy.

The rights are as follows:
  • To receive a copy of your personal data that we hold about you.
  • To ask us to correct or delete your personal data.
  • To restrict our use of your personal data.
  • To object to our use of your personal data, including our use of personal data for direct marketing.
  • To ask us to transfer your personal data to another organization where it is technically feasible.
  • To withdraw your consent at any time where we rely on consent to use your personal data.
  • To notify the relevant data protection authority that you believe we have not used your personal data in accordance with data protection law.

International Data Transfers

Movie Mars is based in the United States, and your personal information is collected, stored, used, and shared in accordance with United States law. However, from time to time, it may be necessary for us, our affiliates, or our service providers to use, transfer, or store your personal data elsewhere around the world. If you are located outside the United States, be advised that any information you provide to us will be transferred to and stored in the United States and that, by using the Platform and submitting information to us, you explicitly authorize its transfer and storage within the United States. We will treat personal information subject to this Privacy Policy in accordance with this Privacy Policy regardless of where it is processed or stored. You should be aware that privacy laws in the United States may not be equivalent to the laws in other countries.

The United States has not received an “adequacy decision” from the European Commission, which means that the data protection laws of the United States may not offer the same protections as the country in which you reside when you provide information to us. If we transfer personal information outside the European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA), we will implement appropriate and suitable safeguards to ensure that such data will be protected as required by applicable data protection law.

Children

Movie Mars is not intended for use by children. Anyone under the age of 13 in the United States, under the age of 16 in the EU and EEA, or considered a minor or child pursuant to any law in their own jurisdiction, is not permitted to use the Platform and must not attempt to submit any personal information to us. We do not knowingly collect personal information from any person who is under the age of 13 in the United States, under 16 in the EU/EEA, or a minor/child in any other jurisdiction. If it comes to our attention that we have collected personal data from any children or minors, we will delete any such information as quickly as possible. If you have reason to believe that we may have collected any such personal data, please notify us immediately at customerservice@moviemars.com.

Our Commitment To Data Security

We take reasonable security precautions to protect the personal information that you choose to provide. Although guaranteed security does not exist on the Internet or offline, we make commercially reasonable efforts to handle such information consistent with this Privacy Policy and applicable laws. Due to the design of the Internet and other factors outside our control, we cannot guarantee communications between you and our servers will be free from unauthorized access by third parties. We will retain your personal data for as long as necessary for the purposes for which it was collected. The precise period will depend on the reason why it was collected. Those periods are also based on the requirements of applicable data protection laws, applicable legal and regulatory requirements, and periods relating to the commencement of legal actions.

How You Can Access Or Correct Your Information

If you choose to visit MovieMars.com or any of our Affiliated Stores, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Notice.

Please include your full name, address, and email address in your request.
