Collection and Use of Information

In order to provide you with the Experience, we and/or our Experience Providers may collect certain information and/or content from you, including the following:

We and our Experience Providers will use the information and content you provide to administer those Experiences.

When you interact with us, certain information might be collected automatically. Examples of information include: the type of computer operating system, device and software characteristics (such as type and configuration), referral URLs, IP address (which may tell us your general location), statistics on page views or interactions with activities, and browser and standard web server log information. This information is collected using technologies such as cookies, pixel tags, and web beacons. We use this information for the support of internal operations, such as to conduct research and analysis to address the performance of our Experience, and to generate aggregated or de-identified reporting for our use.

This Experience might use cookies to support the performance of our site and to remember choices you have made, such as preferred language. You can modify your browser settings to control whether your computer or other device accepts or declines cookies. If you choose to decline cookies you may not be able to use certain interactive features of this Experience or certain of its Experiences. You can delete cookies from your browser; however, that means that any settings or preferences managed by those cookies will also be deleted and you may need to recreate them. Depending on your mobile device, you may not be able to control tracking technologies through settings. The emails we send might include a web beacon or similar technology that lets us know if you received or opened the email and whether you clicked on any of the links in the email.

This Experience might use Google Analytics, a web analytics service offered by Google. Google Analytics assists us in gathering analytics and statistical data in connection with the Experience. On our behalf Google processes this information to analyze the usage of the Experience, create reports on the Experience activities, and provide other services related to Experience and internet usage for us. If you have any questions or concerns with regard to Google Analytics’ privacy practices, you can review their privacy policy at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

The Experience might give you the option to share information by email, social or other sharing applications, using the clients and applications on your smart device. Social plugins (including those offered by Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest) allow you to share information on those platforms. Social plugins and social applications are operated by the social network themselves and are subject to their terms of use and privacy policies.

We use reasonable administrative, logical, physical and managerial measures to safeguard your information against loss, theft and unauthorized access, use and modification. We may retain information as required or permitted by applicable laws and regulations, including to fulfill the purposes described in these Terms.

We may disclose your information for certain purposes and to third parties, as described below:

If, in the course of sharing information, we transfer personal information to countries outside your region, we will take steps to ensure that the information is transferred in accordance with these Terms and in accordance with the applicable laws on data protection.

Your Information and Rights

You can request access to your personal information or correct or update out-of-date or inaccurate personal information we hold about you. You can object to processing of your personal information, ask us to restrict processing of your personal information, or request portability of your personal information. If we have collected and processed your personal information with your consent, you can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your personal information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.

To make requests, or if you have any other question regarding our privacy practices, please contact our Data Protection Officer/Privacy Office at experience@netflix.com.
