INFORMATION THAT IS AUTOMATICALLY COLLECTED
The methods that may be used on the Services to collect Usage Information include:
Log Information: Log information is data about your use of the Services, such as IP address, browser type, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamps, and related data, which is stored in log files.
Information Collected by Tracking Technologies: Cookies, web beacons (also known as "tracking pixels"), embedded scripts, location-identifying technologies, device fingerprinting, in-app tracking methods, and other tracking technologies now and hereafter developed (“Tracking Technologies”) may be used to collect information about your interactions with the Services or content, including information about your browsing and activity behavior.
Cookies: Cookies are small files that your web browser places on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes. A cookie may be a session ID cookie or tracking cookie. Session cookies make it easier for you to navigate the Services and expire when you close your browser. Tracking cookies help in understanding how you use Services, and remain longer. Cookies may remain on your hard drive for an extended period of time. If you use your browser’s method of blocking or removing cookies, some features and functionalities of the Services may not work. The Services may associate some or all of these types of cookies with your devices.
Web Beacons (“Tracking Pixels”): Web beacons are small graphic images, also known as "internet tags" or "clear gifs," embedded in web pages and email messages. Web beacons may be used to provide information about how our visitors use our Services and how they interact with our email newsletters and with our stories that appear on other websites.
Embedded Scripts: An embedded script is programming code designed to collect information about your interactions with the Services. It is temporarily downloaded onto your device from our web server or a third party with whom we work, is active only while you are connected to the Services, and deleted or deactivated thereafter.
Location-identifying Technologies: GPS (global positioning systems) software, geo-filtering, and other location-aware technologies locate (sometimes precisely) you for purposes such as verifying your location and delivering or restricting relevant content based on your location.
In-App Tracking Methods: There are a variety of tracking technologies that may be included in mobile applications, and these are not browser-based like cookies and cannot be controlled by browser settings. Some use device identifier, or other identifiers such as “Ad IDs” to associate app user activity to a particular app and to track user activity across apps.
Some information about your use of the Services and certain Third Party Services may be collected using Tracking Technologies across time and services and used by us and third parties for purposes such as to associate different devices you use, and deliver relevant ads and/or other content to you on the Services and certain Third Party Services.

INFORMATION FROM OTHER SOURCES
HOW WE USE COLLECTED INFORMATION

We may also use your information to fulfill any other purpose disclosed to you at the time you provide your information.
DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
Our agents, vendors, consultants, and other service providers (collectively “Service Providers”) may receive, or be given access to your information, including personally identifying information and Usage Information, in connection with their work on our behalf. These Service Providers are prohibited from using your personally identifying information for any purpose other than to provide this assistance, although we may permit them to use aggregate information which does not identify you or de-identified data for other purposes.
When we send you email newsletters and other communications, we may use a Service Provider to send the emails on our behalf;
We may share information with our Service Providers and third parties in support of creating and promoting our content, such as comics and podcasts;
We may release information about our visitors if required to do so by law or if, in our judgment, such disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process, to enforce our Terms of Service, or to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of visitors to our Services, our employees, or others;
In the event that we sell some or all of our assets, or one or more of our Services is acquired by another company, information about our visitors may be among the transferred assets;
With our affiliates for internal business purposes;
With our affiliates, business partners, and other third parties for their own business purposes, including direct marketing purposes (California residents have certain rights set forth in “Your California Privacy Rights” below);
For purposes disclosed at the time you provide personally identifying information; and
With your consent or at your direction.
Without limiting the foregoing, in our sole discretion, we may share aggregated information which does not identify you or de-identified information about you with third parties or affiliates for any purpose.
THIRD PARTY SERVICES, ANALYTICS, AND ADVERTISING
Our Services include hyperlinks to websites, locations, platforms, or services operated by third parties ("Third Party Service(s)"). These Third Party Services may use Tracking Technologies to independently collect information about you and may solicit personally identifying information from you.
You may interact with content on our Services through social media sharing tools provided by Facebook, Twitter, Google, LinkedIn, Instagram, reddit, YouTube, Storify, Medium and other social media platforms and services we use (“Social Features”). Examples of Social Features include “liking” or “sharing” our content and otherwise connecting our Services to a Third Party Service. You may also interact with content on our Services, such as comics and podcasts, through platforms that host or embed them through our Services, such as iTunes, Spotify, and Google Play. These Third Parties Services may share the information they collect with us. We do not control the information that these Third Party Services collect when you use their tools, nor do we control how these companies use any information they collect. We encourage you to review their privacy policies before using their tools, which can be found at their respective sites. If you’d prefer that these Third Party Services not collect information about the content you share and use, we suggest that you not use their tools. Also, if you post information on a Third Party Service that references our Services (e.g., by using a hashtag associated with First Look in a tweet or status update), your post may be used on or in connection with our Services.
To help us understand how users are using our Services and to help us improve our Services, we may deploy our own analytics engine in addition to engaging third party analytics providers, such as Google Analytics, Parse.ly, and Mixpanel, to collect aggregate information on our audience and how our audience uses our Services (for example, information on traffic to various pages within our Services). These Service Providers may use this information for purposes such as evaluating your use of the Services, compiling statistic reports on the Service’s activity, and providing other services relating to Services activity and other internet usage.
We may use services to provide shortened uniform resource locators (URLs: the “addresses” of individual web pages) so our content can be shared more easily. These services collect information as our shortened URLs are shared and clicked on and may make some of that information available to us.
We may also engage and work with third parties to serve advertisements on the Services and/or on Third Party Services. These third parties may use Tracking Technologies to tailor ads to your interests based on your browsing of the Services and elsewhere on the internet, sometimes referred to as “interest-based advertising” and “online behavioral advertising (“Interest-based Advertising”), which may include sending you an ad on a Third Party Service after you have left the Services (i.e., “retargeting”).
In addition, we may serve ads on third party services that are targeted to reach people on those services that are also identified on one of more of our data bases (“Matched List Ads”). This is done by matching common factors between our data bases and the data bases of Third Party Services. For instance, we may use such ad services offered by Facebook. If we use Facebook to serve Matched List Ads on Facebook services, you should be able to hover over the box in the right corner of such a Facebook ad and find out how to opt-out with us from such list. If you opt-out from our Facebook Matched List Ads, we will remove the matching personally identifiable information from that list, however, this will not take effect immediately and if you have multiple emails or other accounts you may have to opt-out separately for each one. We are not responsible for such third party services’ failure to comply with your or our opt-out instructions.
For further information on Tracking Technologies and your choices regarding them, please see “Information Collected Automatically” above and “Your Choices” below.
ACCESSING AND CHANGING YOUR INFORMATION
You may access, update, or remove information we have about you that you have voluntarily submitted to us through the Services, such as your name and email address, by sending an email to us here. We may require additional information from you to allow us to confirm your identity. Please note that we will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES GENERALLY
Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to online services you visit. Note, however, there is no industry consensus as to what site and app operators should do with regard to these signals. Accordingly, we do not monitor or take action with respect to “Do Not Track” signals or other mechanisms. For more information on “Do Not Track,” visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.
ANALYTICS AND ADVERTISING TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES
You may choose whether to receive Interest-based Advertising by submitting opt-outs. Some of the advertisers and Service Providers that perform advertising-related services for us and our partners may participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance ("DAA") Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. To learn more about how you can exercise certain choices regarding Interest-based Advertising, visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices, and http://www.aboutads.info/appchoices for information on the DAA’s opt-out program for mobile apps. Some of these companies may also be members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”). To learn more about the NAI and your opt-out options for their members, see http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. Please be aware that, even if you are able to opt-out of certain kinds of Interest-based Advertising, you may continue to receive other types of ads. Opting out only means that those selected members should no longer deliver certain Interest-based Advertising to you, but does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content and/or ads (e.g., from other ad networks). First Look is not responsible for effectiveness of, or compliance with, any third-parties’ opt-out options or programs or the accuracy of their statements regarding their programs.
In order to opt out of interest-based advertising under the Twitter Website Conversions Objective Beta Program, you must both (a) use the Do Not Track functionality in your web browser or through such other methods that Twitter may specify from time to time here; and (b) follow the instructions at http://www.aboutads.info/choices, http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/, or any successor or related websites where users can access the interest-based opt-out mechanisms provided by the companies participating in such programs.
You can opt-out of receiving certain promotional communications (emails and push notifications) from us at any time by (i) for emails, following the instructions as provided in emails to click on the unsubscribe link, or contacting us here with the word UNSUBSCRIBE in the subject field of the email; and (ii) for push notifications or in-app messages, adjusting the permissions in your mobile device. Please note that your opt-out is limited to the email address or device used and will not affect subsequent subscriptions or non-promotional communications, such as those about your account, transactions, servicing, or First Look’s ongoing business relations.
YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
California’s “Shine the Light” law permits customers in California to request certain details about how certain types of their information are shared with third parties and, in some cases, affiliates, for those third parties’ and affiliates’ own direct marketing purposes.
