Privacy Policy

We understand and value your privacy. At MovieJab, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe.

The information MovieJab collects

We collect information from you when you register on our site, subscribe to our newsletter, fill out a form, suggest a movie, or try to contact us. We collect what is generally called "personally identifiable" information (such as your name, age, email address) if you use certain services or products from the MovieJab Platform or otherwise use the features and functionality of the MovieJab Platform.

"Automatically Collected" Information: When you access MovieJab or open one of our HTML emails, we may automatically record certain information from your system, such as the Internet Protocol address ("IP Address"), a unique user ID, your preferences (movies that you liked or disliked) as saved on your MovieJab profile, the content and pages that you access on MovieJab, and the dates and times that you visit the MovieJab Platform.

Facebook Information: when you connect with MovieJab using your Facebook account, MovieJab may retrieve additional taste-related information from your Facebook account, such as the movies that you liked on Facebook. This is solely for the purpose of enhancing the quality of the recommendations and providing a more personalised experience (providing you with better movie recommendations).

"Cookies" Information: When you access MovieJab, we may send one or more cookies - small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters - to your computer. MovieJab 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 MovieJab in order to improve your experience. Persistent cookies can be removed by you if you clear the cookies from your browser.

Your MovieJab ID: Your MovieJab ID is displayed throughout the MovieJab Platform and is therefore available to the public. Other people can see your likes, dislikes, associated comments, etc. Therefore, if you associate your actual name with your User ID, the people to whom you have revealed your name will be able to personally identify your activities on MovieJab.

The way MovieJab uses information

MovieJab uses the information that you provide or that we collect to operate, maintain, enhance, and provide all of the features and services found on the MovieJab website.

We may use your email address, without further consent, for administrative communications such as notifying you of major MovieJab updates, for customer service purposes, and to send privacy or security related notices. We may also use your email address to send weekly updates and other notifications related to your MovieJab activity (e.g. if we have new movie recommendations for you). You can control which such emails to receive by contacting us or by clicking the unsubscribe button found at the bottom of each email you receive.

MovieJab uses some of the information that we collect to improve the way the MovieJab's website works and looks, and to create new features and functionality. Taste-related information, such as the movie titles that you like or dislike on MovieJab, or movie titles that you liked on Facebook, that we might retrieve, after your permission, as provided when you chose to connect to MovieJab using your Facebook account, may be used to improve the quality of the recommendations, and thus provide better suggestions, based on what you like.

When MovieJab discloses information

MovieJab does not share your personally identifiable information with other organisations for their marketing or promotional uses without your prior express consent. Please be aware, however, that any personally identifiable information that you voluntarily choose to display on any publicly available portion of MovieJab - such as when you publish comments - becomes publicly available and may be collected and used by others without restriction.

MovieJab may disclose User information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws or respond to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena, or warrant in the manner required by the requesting entity.

Our commitment to data security

MovieJab uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to MovieJab, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission of information, MovieJab makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.

Third party links

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

Our commitment to children's privacy


Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, MovieJab does not knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information from persons under 13 years-of-age. If MovieJab learns that personally-identifiable information of persons less than 13-years-of-age has been collected on or through the MovieJab Platform, then MovieJab will take the appropriate steps to delete this information.
