MovieZen's Privacy Policy: Updated September 20, 2007

Our Commitment to You

Welcome to MovieZen, an online community for movie fans where users can setup a profile with all of their favorite movies, connect their profile with friends and meet new people with similar taste. The founders and employees of MovieZen take your privacy very seriously. To make it easier for you to read and understand our privacy policy, we did the unconventional thing - we wrote this in plain English and tried to keep it to a reasonably short length.

Here are our privacy principles:

* You control your personal information on MovieZen
* You control the communication you receive from MovieZen
* You can end your membership with MovieZen at any time

Information Collected by MovieZen

When you register to become a member of MovieZen, you submit personally identifiable information such as your name and email address. As part of your personal profile, you may choose to submit additional information such as age, gender, location, interests and other content, such as photos.

We also collect other non-personally identifiable data, which may include your IP address and what browser you are using.

Use of Information

We will display your personal information on your profile and elsewhere on the site according to the preferences you set in your account where it may be seen by other members or non-members. As with any online service, we encourage users to think carefully about what personal information they will disclose on their profile.

We may use your information such as your age, zip code or IP address, to statistically analyze site usage and to customize our site's content, layout and services. The resulting information will allow us to improve our site and better understand and serve our users.

We may share your information with third-party service providers including advertisers to help us provide or improve the service. See below for a description of advertising policies.

Finally, we will disclose your personally identifiable information if we reasonably believe we are required to do so by law, regulation or other government authority or to protect the rights and property of MovieZen, its affiliates or the public. We may also cooperate with law enforcement agencies in any official investigation and we may disclose your personally identifiable information to the relevant agency in doing so.

Reviewing and Changing Your Profile

You can review and revise your personal profile at any time.

Email Policies

By default, we will send you weekly updates of various site information including new movies or quizzes of the week, a variety of transactional emails such as when users post comments to your profile and the occasional site announcement.

You have full control regarding which of these emails you want to receive. To change your options, simply click "My Account" at the top right corner of any page.

Inviting Friends to MovieZen

MovieZen is intended to be a place to share movie ratings and reviews with friends. We hope you will like the site and invite others to join you!

Inviting friends to MovieZen is always completely optional. When you choose to invite friends, we will send an email to the addresses you enter indicating that it is a message from you. We will share your name and email address with anyone you invite so that they know who the invitation is coming from. If a friend does not respond to the initial invitation after a little while, we will send up to two reminder messages on your behalf.

For your convenience, MovieZen offers the ability to import email addresses from common address books such as Hotmail/Yahoo/Gmail/AOL. If you choose to use this feature, we will access your address book using the login details that you provide. We access your address book only once to retrieve your friends' information so that you may select whom to invite. We do not store your login details nor do we use them for any other purpose then to retrieve your contacts. We never send invitations to contacts you do not explicitly select and your invitations are the only email we will ever send to your friends unless they register to join the site.

If you have accidentally sent invitations you did not intend - please contact us and we can cancel the reminder message.


Children under the age of thirteen (13) are not eligible to use our service. If we become aware that any user is under the age of 13, we cancel their account and delete all of their personal information.
