Chandler International Film Festival, Inc. (“CIFFI”) knows that users of its web site care about the personal information they provide to us. This privacy policy, which is part of our overall Terms and Conditions of Use, is designed to provide you with information about how we collect, store and use personally identifiable information obtained through our website. We refer to this information as “personal information.” CIFFI reserves the right to revise this privacy policy from time to time, and by using the CIFFI web site, you are agreeing to the terms of the then-current privacy policy.


How Information Is Collected:

When you register for or wish to utilize certain of our website services, we will ask you for information such as your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, certain demographic information and (if needed) credit card information. We need certain information in order to register you as a unique user and let you access personalized services. However, other requested information is optional and can be given at your discretion.

Like most websites, CIFFI uses “cookies.” A “cookie” is a text file, invoked by standard browser software, that we place on your hard drive to enable our systems to, among other things, recognize your browser, track transactions, and allow you to navigate our website without having to re-enter information. The information gathered by cookies is not made available to organizations. We may also automatically receive and store certain other types of information, such as the type of web browser you use or the pages you follow links to from the CIFFI web site.


Use Of Information We Collect:

Personal information collected through this website may be used by CIFFI to communicate with you, register you as a user, allow purchasing and shipping of tickets, subscriptions, memberships and/or merchandise, enable you to participate in special promotions and to navigate the website without having to re-enter information, administer our website, comply with applicable law, and as otherwise provided in this privacy policy. We may occasionally make personal information available to select other organizations, including but not limited to, non-profit arts organizations, affiliated organizations, agents working on our behalf, companies or organizations with whom we have a contractual or sponsor relationship, or in connection with an asset transfer. We may also provide aggregated data to these and other organizations. Although we may make reasonable inquiries to determine that such other organizations maintain website privacy policies comparable to ours, we are not responsible for the enforcement of such policies.


Certain of our programs use personal information to send updates and notices to registered users via e-mail. If you provide your mailing address or telephone number, CIFFI may also use your personal information to contact you by mail or by telephone regarding special offers from CIFFI, updated information about CIFFI or the CIFFI web site, and new services offered by CIFFI. If you wish to be removed from this contact list, you may do so by contacting CIFFI directly. (See the “Contact” section on this website).


Third-Party Service Providers:

CIFFI may engage reputable third-party vendors in order to help us manage our website and allow us to better service our visitors and customers. These may include third-party vendors engaged to analyze, for marketing purposes, the information collected on our website.


CIFFI’s site may contain links to third-party websites. Once you leave CIFFI’s web site, this privacy policy will not apply to such websites.


Administration Of Our Web Site / Compliance With Law:

We may disclose your personal information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Terms and Conditions of Use or to protect the safety, property or other rights of our users or the public. In addition, we may disclose or access account information for administrative and other purposes that we believe are necessary to develop, maintain, and improve our products and services. We also may disclose your personal information if we believe in good faith that we are required to do so in order to comply with applicable law, a subpoena, or other legal processes.


Security Used To Protect Your Information:

We take commercially reasonable steps to maintain the security of customer information via a variety of access controls, including password protection, electronic firewalls, and data encryption. However, CIFFI does not guarantee the security of such information.

We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the privacy policies and terms and conditions of use of linked websites.
