Popcorn Time Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy applies to information we collect about you at popcorntime.show (the "Website") and Popcorn Time applications and how we use this information.

Collection of your Popcorn Time Information

Your "Popcorn Time information" includes relevant technical information gathered or received while you use Popcorn Time. This technical information that may be collected or received includes: the type of browser you are using (e.g., Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari), the type of operating system you are using (e.g., Windows or Mac OS), your CPU type, the manner in which you connect to the internet (e.g., connection speed through narrowband or broadband access); Internet protocol address; pertinent Applications Installed; information about the version of service from an affiliate that you used prior to registering with the service; certain information about your geographic location; and the domain name of your Internet service provider.

You may not be required to register for a "Popcorn Time account" for certain Services; however, there are some optional services available (for example, saving a video list) that require an "account". Registration functionality for Popcorn Time is provided by the Popcorn Time Network. If you choose to "Register an Account", you will need to register with and provide information to Popcorn Time. After registering you will obtain a Screen Name, or possibly other credential, issued by Popcorn Time (collectively, "Screen Name") in order to access and use these optional services. Your Screen Name and associated services account will then be subject to the Popcorn Time Terms of Service Agreement and Privacy Policies indicated in the registration process and available to view at any time on popcorntime.show.

How Your Popcorn Time information is Used

•to fulfill your requests for products, programs, and services;
•to communicate with you and respond to your inquiries;

Your Popcorn Time information will not be shared with third parties unless it is necessary to fulfill a request, in other circumstances in which you have consented to the sharing of your Popcorn Time information, or except as described in this Privacy Policy. We may use your Popcorn Time information to present offers to you on behalf of business partners and advertisers. These business partners and advertisers may receive aggregate data about groups of Popcorn Time users, but do not receive information that personally identifies you.

If you use our communications tools to disclose information about yourself publicly (for example, by making your screen name and/or video lists publicly available), other online users may obtain access to any information you provide. The contents of your online communications, as well as other information about you as a Popcorn Time user, may be accessed and disclosed in response to legal process (for example, a court order, search warrant or subpoena); in other circumstances in which we believe Popcorn Time is being used in the commission of a crime; when we have a good faith belief that there is an emergency that poses a threat to the safety of you or another person; or when necessary either to protect our rights or property or the rights or property of our affiliated providers, or for us to render the service you have requested. We may use agents and contractors in order to help operate the service. If such agents and contractors have access to your Popcorn Time information, they are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy by, for example, not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for Popcorn Time.

In the event that ownership of us or the Popcorn Time service was to change as a result of a merger, acquisition or transfer to another company, your Popcorn Time information may be transferred. If such a transfer results in a material change in the use of your Popcorn Time information, we will provide notice about the choices you have to decline to permit such a transfer.

Your Choices About Your Information

If you want to change your account information (for example, your Screen Name) you will need to log onto Popcorn Time and access your account through the forum. Your access to your account information and choice will be governed by the Popcorn Time policies.
