Personal Information that the Film Connection May Collect Online
The Film Connection collects personal information online, including names, postal and e-mail addresses, phone and facsimile numbers. The Film Connection does not knowingly collect or maintain any personal information from children under the age of 13. In addition, no part of our sites are designed with the purpose of attracting any person under age 13.
How the Film Connection Uses Personal Information Collected Online
Unless you otherwise consent, we will use your personal information only for the purpose for which it is submitted, such as to reply to your emails, process your student application, or to further your request for financial aid, and we will use such information to provide operational notices and in program record-keeping. Our research may lead to the publication of aggregate demographical data, but will not result in the reporting or publication of any personal information provided to us. At certain points where personal information is collected on our site, there may be a box where you may indicate you would like to be on a mailing list to receive information about other Film Connection programs and services. This election box only appears in places where the department collecting personal information maintains such lists. At any time, you can add or remove your name from a Film Connection list by contacting us at [email protected]
How Your Information May Be Shared
By completing a request or inquiry, you are allowing us to forward your information to the appropriate mentor, recording studio, radio station or film production company, if necessary. Consumer applications will be forwarded to the appropriate mentor by email, and consumers should recognize that this method of transmission may not be secure.
We never sell or rent your personal information.
