Specific Information Collected From Organizers.

If you are an Organizer, we will collect in addition to the above:

Information you provide to us: In some cases, we may collect your credit card information (e.g., your credit card number and expiration date, billing address, etc.), some of which may constitute personal data, to secure certain payments. In addition, if you use our payment processing services, we will collect financial information from you (e.g., your bank account information or an address to send checks) as necessary to facilitate payments and information required for tax purposes (e.g., your taxpayer identification number).

Information we obtain from other sources: We may also collect or receive personal data including your name, email address and other contact information from third party sources, such as third party websites and marketing partners, your bank, our payment processing partners and credit reporting agencies.

Specific Information Collected From Attendees and End Users.

If you are an Attendee or an End User, we will collect in addition to the above (sometimes for our own purposes and other times on behalf of an Organizer) the following information.

Information you provide: If you register for a paid event or purchase a TVOD offering, you will provide financial information (e.g., your credit card number and expiration date, billing address, etc.) some of which may constitute personal data. In addition, Organizers can set up event registration pages to collect virtually any information from Attendees or End Users in connection with registration for an Organizer’s event or offering listed on the Services. Kinema does not control an Organizer’s registration process nor the personal data that they collect. When you register for, or otherwise provide information to Kinema in conjunction with an Organizer event, TVOD offering or activity, whether that information is yours or a third party’s, in connection with a purchase, registration, or transfer, that Organizer will receive and may use the information you provide. Please see below, the subsection titled “How We Disclose and Transfer Your Personal Data: Organizers” for more information about an Organizer’s receipt and use of your personal data.

Information we obtain from other sources: We may also collect or receive personal data from third party sources, such as Organizers, other Attendees, other End Users, social media or other third party integrations, your credit card issuing bank, our payment processing partners or other third parties.


We may use your personal information as follows:

We may use your personal information to operate, maintain, and improve our sites, products, and services.

We may use your personal information to send information including confirmations, invoices, technical notices, updates, security alerts, and support and administrative messages.

We may use your personal information to protect, investigate, and deter against fraudulent, unauthorized, or illegal activity.

We may use your personal information to provide and deliver products and services customers request.

We may collect credit card information from you as payment for our products and services.

In addition, we allow Organizers to use our email tools to contact Attendees or End Users for their current and past events or TVOD offerings, so you may receive emails from our system that originate with such Organizers and that we send on their behalf. If you registered for an event or purchased a TVOD offering on the Services, your email address is available to that Organizer. However, Organizers may also import the email addresses they have from external sources and send communications through the Services to those email addresses, and we will deliver those communications to those email addresses on the Organizer’s behalf. The Organizer and not Kinema is responsible for sending these emails. See “Opt Out from Electronic Communications” below on how to opt out of Organizer-initiated communications.

Further, when you register for an event, purchase a TVOD offering, sign up for communications, or otherwise input your personal data (such as through a web form) to communicate with an Organizer or participate in an Organizer event, that Organizer will receive that information. The Organizer may then send you marketing or other communications, which may be subject to its own, separate privacy policy. Likewise, if you provide your mobile phone number, you may receive information messages related to the service, event, activity or information in which you’ve expressed interest.

When you purchase tickets to, register for or donate to an event, transfer an event ticket or registration to another person, purchase a TVOD offering, or otherwise input your personal data (such as through a web form), or otherwise communicate with an Organizer, or participate in or express interest in an Organizer or Organizer event or activity, that Organizer will receive the information you provide, including your personal data, and where a ticket or registration is transferred, the personal data of the transferee as well. Other third parties that are involved in or on whose behalf an event or activity is promoted, may receive that personal data as well.

We are not responsible for the actions of these Organizers, or third parties engaged by an Organizer, which may or may not be affiliated with the Organizer, to create an event or TVOD offering on its behalf (a “Third Party Organizer”) (or other downstream recipients of your personal data), with respect to your personal data. It is important that you review the applicable policies of the Organizers, and if applicable and available, their appointed Third Party Organizers, of an event (and the related third party web page, if applicable) before providing personal data or other information in connection with that event page.
