Picture Perfect Halloween Photo Contest

Privacy Policy
Effective Date: September 26, 2012

Our Commitment to Privacy. Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your personal information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on every page on our website and at each point where your personally identifiable information may be requested.

Scope of this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy applies to all information collected by or submitted on the Picture Perfect Halloween Photo Contest website provided by FUJIFILM North America Corporation ("Fujifilm") at http://www.HalloweenPhotoContest.com.

The Information We Collect. The information we learn from customers helps us continually improve our websites and our service to you. The information we collect falls into two broad categories: (1) information you provide to us and (2) information automatically collected when you visit our website.

Information you provide to us. We may collect and store any information you voluntarily provide to us while using our website. You may be asked to provide your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, and other personal and business information when, for example, you create an account with us, sign up for a newsletter, request product information, brochures or sample kits, correspond with us via e-mail, or contact us regarding career opportunities. In the event you order products or services, you may be asked to provide additional information, including, if applicable, credit card or other payment information. This information will not be used for unrelated purposes and will not be shared with outside parties other than our affiliates, agents, business partners and certain third party service providers.

When you submit a question or request information through our website, we may ask for your name, e-mail address, phone number and a limited amount of information about your computer (i.e., your computer operating system). We collect this information so that we may quickly and efficiently route your message to the appropriate support staff member in order to provide you with a response or send you the information you request. This information is not used for any other purpose and is not shared with outside parties.

You may choose to provide us with information beyond that requested on our website. This might involve using a "Contact Us" button or similar mechanisms to provide feedback, data, questions, comments, suggestions, plans, information, product ideas or the like. Please be aware that Fujifilm and its affiliates will consider such information to be unsolicited, non-confidential and non-proprietary. Receipt of such information shall not in any way prevent or restrict the use, manufacture, development or sale by Fujifilm or its affiliates of products or services based upon or similar to the information provided.

Information Collected Automatically. To generally improve administration of our system and to identify needed improvements to our website, we also may collect and store information, in conformity with applicable federal and state laws and regulations, that is generated automatically as you navigate through our website. You may not be aware of when this information is being collected. For example, we may use a common feature supported by browser software called a "cookie" to enhance your experience on the website. Cookies are small files that your web browser places on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes. By showing how and when visitors use our website, cookies help us track user trends and patterns. They also relieve you from having to re-enter your preferences on certain areas of the website where you have previously entered preference information. We may also use web beacons (also known as "single-pixel GIFs") to access cookies and to count users who visit our website or open HTML-formatted e-mail messages. Use of a web beacon allows us to collect information about your computer's connection to the Internet to, among other things, improve the delivery of our web pages to you and to measure traffic to and from our website. Information collected automatically may be shared with our affiliates, agents and business partners to achieve the purposes stated.

If you enter the Fujifilm website through another company's website, your information may be subject to additional third party privacy policies.

Links to Third Party Sites. The Fujifilm website may contain links to third party websites ("Linked Sites"). The Linked Sites are not under the control of Fujifilm, and Fujifilm is not responsible for the contents of any Linked Site, including, without limitation, any information or link contained in a Linked Site, or any changes or updates to a Linked Site and its policies. Fujifilm is not responsible for webcasting or any other form of transmission received by you from any Linked Site nor is Fujifilm responsible if the Linked Site is not working appropriately or directs you to an unexpected Linked Site. Fujifilm is providing these links to you solely as a convenience, and the inclusion of any link does not express or imply endorsement by Fujifilm of the site or any association with its operators. The Linked Site may contain its own privacy and terms of use policies governing the collection and use of your information, and Fujifilm is not responsible for the use of any information you submit to the Linked Sites. You are responsible for viewing and abiding by the privacy statements and terms of use posted at the Linked Sites.

Any dealings with advertisers or other third parties included within the Fujifilm website or participation in promotions, including, without limitation, the delivery of and the payment for goods and services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings or promotions, are solely between you and the advertiser or other third party. Fujifilm shall not be responsible or liable for any part of any such dealings or promotions.

The Way We Use Information. In addition to uses described above, we use non-identifying and aggregate information to enhance the design of our website and help us understand the needs of our site visitors. For example, we may track that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but this process does not involve the disclosure of any personally identifiable information.

Any and all credit card or other payment driven transactions are handled by third party financial institutions and their vendors, which receive your credit card related information and other personally identifiable information solely for the purpose of verifying the credit card numbers and to process the requested transaction.

Forced Disclosure of Information. Fujifilm will also disclose personal information when required by law or a valid court order, or in the good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary to:
  • Comply with the law;
  • Protect and defend the rights and property of Fujifilm or users of its sites; or
  • Protect the personal safety of Fujifilm's employees, users of its sites, or the public.
Our Commitment to Data Security. Finally, we never use the personally identifiable information you provide to us online in ways unrelated to the uses described above without also providing an opportunity for you to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have implemented appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

Anytime you submit credit card information during a transaction, the information is encrypted prior to sending through a secure connection to third party financial institutions and its vendors for processing.

Our Commitment to Children's Privacy. Protecting the privacy of children is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information on our website from users who we actually know are under the age of 13. No part of our website is structured solely to attract anyone under 13 years old.

How to Contact Us. If you have other questions or concerns about this Privacy Policy, please send us an e-mail at privacy@fujifilm.com or you may contact us via mail at FUJIFILM North America Corporation, 200 Summit Lake Drive, Valhalla, NY 10595, Attention: Legal Department.

Consent. By accessing, browsing or otherwise using any of the websites covered by this Privacy Policy, you are consenting to the collection, storage and disclosure of information as described in this Privacy Policy and our Terms and Conditions at http://www.HalloweenPhotoContest.com/terms.

Changes to the Privacy Statement. Fujifilm reserves the right to change, amend, or update this Privacy Policy. If we do decide to change our Privacy Policy, we will post the revised Privacy Policy here so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, under what circumstances we may disclose it, and to whom we may disclose it. Continued use of our website after any posted revision indicates your consent to our use of your information in accordance with the changed, amended, or updated Privacy Policy.
