Privacy Policy

Welcome to the website www.boxofficeindia.co.in and online services (the “Website“) operated by [Box Office India] (“BOI”). BOI values the privacy of our members and others who visit and use the Website (individually, “You” or collectively, “Users“). We take your privacy seriously and make it a priority to protect personally identifiable information that we obtain from and about individuals both online and offline.

This Privacy Policy describes what information we gather from you, how we use that information, and what we do to protect it. By using the Website (whether or not you are a registered member), you expressly consent to the information handling practices described in this policy. If you do not want information about you to be used in the manner set forth in this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Website.

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and is subject to the Terms of Service. Your use of the Website and any personal information you provide on the Website are subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy and Terms of Service. Any capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the meaning set forth in the Terms of Service.

Collection of Information

User-provided Information: When you register for, browse and use the Website, you may provide to BOI what is generally called “personally identifiable information” (such as your full name, email address, postal mailing address, and/or home/mobile telephone number). You may also be able to add a picture of yourself. If you decide to register through or otherwise grant access to a third party social networking or integrated service that we may make available (“Integrated Service”), such as Facebook or Google, BOI may also collect any such “personally identifiable information” that you have provided to the Integrated Service from the account you have with the Integrated Service. You may revoke BOI’s access to your account on the Integrated Service at any time by updating the appropriate settings in the account preferences of the respective Integrated Service. You should check your privacy settings on each Integrated Service to understand and change the information sent to us through each Integrated Service. Please review each Integrated Service’s terms of use and privacy policies carefully before using their services and connecting to our Website. From time to time, BOI may also ask you optionally to provide other information. If you choose to provide such information, during registration or otherwise, you are giving BOI the permission to use and store it consistent with this policy. Therefore, please understand that when you sign in with BOI, you are not anonymous to us.

Information from other Users: We may make available certain features on the Website that allow other Users of the Website to provide us information that may include your personally identifiable information.

“Cookies” Information: When you visit the Website, whether or not you are a registered member, we may send one or more cookies – small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters – to your computer. Cookies remember information about your activities on a website. BOI may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Website. Persistent cookies can be removed. Please review your web browser “Help” file to learn the proper way to modify your cookie settings. However, without cookies you will not have access to certain services and features on the Website. Third party advertisements displayed in connection with the Website may also contain cookies set by internet advertisers. We do not control these cookies and Users of the Website should check the privacy policy of the advertiser to see whether and how it uses cookies.

“Automatically Collected” Information: When you use the Website, we may automatically record certain information from your browser by using different types of technology, including standard log files, “clear gifs” or “web beacons”. This “automatically collected” information may include your Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring or exit pages, click stream data, operating system and the dates and times that you visit the Website.

Third Party Web Beacons: We may also implement third party content, such as advertising, on the Website that uses “clear gifs,” “web beacons,” or other similar techniques, which allow the third party content provider to read and write cookies to your browser, or implement similar tracking mechanisms, in connection with your viewing of that third party content displayed on the Website. This information is collected directly by the third party, and BOI does not participate in that data transmission. Information collected by third parties in this manner is subject to that third party’s own data collection, use, and disclosure policies.

Location Information: We may collect and store information about your location if you enable your computer or mobile device to send us location information. You may be able to change the settings on your computer or mobile device to prevent it from providing us with such information.

Information from Other Sources: We may also obtain information, including personally identifiable information, from third parties and sources other than the Website. If we combine or associate information from other sources with personally identifiable information that we collect through the Website, we will treat the combined information as personally identifiable information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Usage of Information

BOI uses the information that you provide or that we collect in order to establish and enhance our relationship with you. BOI generally uses the information you provide or that we collect to operate, maintain, enhance, and provide all of the features and services found on the Website. If you have given BOI consent, we may use your personally identifiable information to provide you with information about BOI’s features, services and other offerings that may be of interest to you. We may also send information or offers to groups of Users on behalf of other businesses. Under certain circumstances (for example if you win a contest) we may post your personally identifiable information on the Website. However, we will notify you of this possibility when collecting personally identifiable information or we will obtain your consent. We may share your personally identifiable information with certain other websites that we link to (and that you click upon) in order to enhance your experience in connection with the Website.

BOI uses all of the information that you provide or that we collect from Users to understand and analyze the usage trends and preferences of our Users, to improve the way the Website works and looks, and to create new features and functionality.

If you have registered as a member and given BOI consent, we may share your personally identifiable information with advertisers, business partners, and other entities that are not affiliated with BOI who would like to send you information about their products and services. We do not share personally identifiable information with other third-party organizations for their marketing or promotional use without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in.

BOI’s employees, agents and contractors must have a legitimate business reason to obtain access to the personally identifiable information you may provide to register as a member of BOI. We may share your personally identifiable information with companies that provide services to us, including outside contractors or agents who help us manage our information activities, but they may only use your personally identifiable information to provide us with a specific service and not for any other purpose.

In some cases, we may make such disclosures without first providing notice to Users.

Merger or Acquisition: In the event that BOI is acquired by or merged with a third-party entity, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information that we have collected from Users as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control.
