Privacy Policy

SUBMIT THE DOCUMENTARY, LLC (“SUBMIT”) values your privacy. We intend to give you as much control as possible over your personal information. In general, you can view this web site without telling Submit the Documentary™ who you are or revealing any information about yourself. There are times, however, when Submit may need information from you, such as your name, location and email address. We use the information you provide about yourself or someone else when submitting a message, purchasing products, making a donation, becoming a volunteer, or other submission.

Although our site compiles with standard log files to measure the site’s traffic, it does not specifically identify any email address. We never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to Submit online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

This Privacy Policy applies differently to individuals under certain ages. We ask that parents and guardians take some time to review this policy as it may apply to their children, as set forth under the heading “Maintaining the Privacy of Children.” By using this web site, you are agreeing to the policies set forth below and the current Terms & Conditions (“Terms & Conditions”), set forth on this page.

We reserve the right to modify, amend or restate this Privacy Policy from time to time with or without prior notice. Your use of this web site after the posting of modifications to this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of the Privacy Policy as modified.

What Information Do We Collect?

We collect information in several ways during your visits to the Submit web site. Some personal information is collected when you sign up to make a purchase, receive a newsletter, become a volunteer, participate in an event, or send a message. Or you may provide personal information when signing up for promotions offered on the web site from time to time. When you contact us, we may also keep a record of that correspondence. Also, when you make a purchase on the Submit site, we may also keep a record of that transaction.

We will endeavor to provide a link to the current Privacy Policy on pages where personal information may be requested.

Individuals are free to use this web site without participating in any electronic submission that requests your personal information, and thereby avoid providing personally identifiable information.

What Are Cookies and How Do We Use Them?

A “cookie” is information that is transferred from a web site’s server to your computer’s browser and stored on your computer’s hard drive. This information is then available to the web site’s server when you return to that site using the same browser. This information can be used to identify the user of the browser visiting the site and record, for example, preferences and usage in general.

Most web sites use cookies to customize the online experience based on an individual’s interests and preferences and in order to streamline transactions by recording frequently entered information. We use cookies to assess which parts of the Submit web site are popular and which are not. Our updates to the web site will depend in part on data compiled from the use of cookies, such as total numbers of visitors, pages viewed and other traffic patterns.

We may in the future use cookies to assist returning visitors and customers in other ways. At such time, we will update our Privacy Policy accordingly. We do not use cookies to retrieve information from your computer that was not originally sent in a cookie. You may also receive cookies sent by our partners or sponsors, which is a standard practice for online advertisers. In most cases, if you choose, you can set your browser to refuse cookies or alert you to their transfer to your browser.

How is My Information Used?

We currently use personal information only for the purposes of providing electronic exchanges of information specifically requested by the user. In certain cases, you may provide Submit with your name, location and email address to submit a message, register for an event, join in supporting our organization, or make a purchase. We use and transmit this information only to the extent necessary to complete such submission and ensuing action or response.

We currently do not provide your personal information to third parties. We reserve the right to provide email addresses of our users to our sponsors, or business partners, in order to provide users with information and promotions we believe may be of interest to them. We offer the opportunity to each of our registered users to be excluded from such distributions by following the clear and concise instructions for removal or unsubscribe at the bottom of any and all bulk communications such as newsletters and special offers.
