4. Third-Party Sites

Third-Party Social Media Sites

You can engage with our website through third-party social media plug-ins and applications, such as those offered by Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and others. You may also choose to link your account with us to third-party social media sites, for example, through Facebook Connect, or sign up to receive our e-mail newsletters through your social media account. When you link your account, or engage with such plug-ins or applications, you may allow us to have ongoing access to certain information from your social media account (e.g., name, e-mail address, profile photo, gender, birthday, location, your list of friends and their contact information, people you follow and/or who follow you, the posts or the ‘likes’ you make). When you provide information to us from your social media account, it can help enable us to do things like personalize your online experience with us, and enable us to contact you through the social media sites or directly with the latest news, special offerings, and rewards. By providing such information, you consent to the use of the information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Links to Third-Party Sites

Please be aware that when you are navigating our website or viewing an e-mail or other content provided by us you may have the opportunity to click on links that take you outside of our website to other websites or online content that are beyond our control. For example, you may encounter links to fan sites, webmaster program participant sites, or links from sponsors or partners, which may include our logo as part of a co-branding arrangement. We have no control over, and we are not responsible for, the privacy practices or the content of these websites, and we disclaim all liability associated with your use of these third-party websites and the content contained therein. Once you have left our website by clicking on an external link or advertisement, you should check the applicable third-party’s policies to determine your rights and obligations with respect to using their website, and whether they will collect personal information from you and how they will use it.

5. Your Choices & Controls

If we collect, use or share your information, we will provide you with the ability to exercise certain controls and choices regarding our collection, use and sharing of your information as follows:

  • You may correct, update and delete your registration account;
  • You may change your choices for subscriptions, newsletters and alerts;
  • You may choose whether to receive from us offers and promotions for our products and services, or products and services that we think may be of interest to you;
  • You may choose whether we share your personal information with other companies so they can send you offers and promotions about their products and services; and
  • You may request access to the personal information we hold about you and that we amend or delete it.

When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request. We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems). Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.

You may exercise your controls and choices, or request access to your personal information, by contacting privacy@studio8.com, or following instructions provided in communications sent to you. Please be aware that, if you do not allow us to collect personal information from you, we may not be able to deliver certain products and services to you, and some of our services may not be able to take account of your interests and preferences. If you have questions regarding the specific personal information about you that we process or retain, please contact  privacy@studio8.com.

Cookies

Many web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove cookies and to reject cookies from our servers.

Device Settings

Devices and device system software provide certain opt-out choices that you can control. For example, Apple iOS and Google Play Services provide an opt-out choice that you can use to control in-app advertisements, and mobile device operating systems provide opt-out choices for push notifications or alerts and collection of location information. If you previously chose to receive push notifications on your mobile device from us but no longer wish to receive them, you can manage your preferences either through your device or app settings, depending on the type of device. Please consult your device settings for more information or to opt out using these mechanisms.

7. Data Security

We work hard to protect our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. In that regard, we use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect your personal information under our control. For example, we seek to use Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) technology for the placement of orders. Unfortunately, no data storage system or data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Please also be aware that we may use third-party cloud service providers that provide hosting, data storage and other services pursuant to standard terms and conditions that may be non-negotiable; these service providers have informed us or the general public that they apply security measures they consider adequate for the protection of information within their system, or they have a general reputation for applying such measures.

Please exercise caution in submitting personal information to our website, especially if you are accessing our website using a WiFi hotspot or public network. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account that you might have with us has been compromised, or if you are unable to utilize our SSL technology in connection with our website), please immediately notify us of the problem over the telephone or in person, instead of using the website. You may contact us in such circumstances in accordance with the “Contacting Us” section below.
