INFORMATION SHARING AND DISCLOSURE
We share and disclose Information in the following ways or for any other purpose disclosed at the time of collection:
Joint-controllers. Two Warner Bros. entities jointly control your Information. See the end of this policy for further details.
Change of control. We transfer Information in the event of a business transaction, such as if we or one of our business units or our relevant assets are acquired by, sold to, or merged with another company or as part of a bankruptcy proceeding or a business reorganisation.
Service providers. Our agents and contractors have access to Information to help carry out the services they are performing for us, such as, but not limited to, fulfilment, creation, maintenance, hosting, and delivery of products and services, conduct marketing, handle payments, email and order fulfillment, administer contests, conduct research and analytics, or customer service.
Linked sites. Some of our sites contain links to other sites, including Social Media Sites, whose information practices can be different from ours. You should consult the other sites' privacy disclosures and terms before submitting any Information, as we have no control over Information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.
Sponsors and co-promotions. We sometimes offer content or programs (e.g., contests, sweepstakes, promotions, games, applications or Social Media Site integrations) that are sponsored by or co-branded with identified third parties. By virtue of these relationships, the third parties collect or obtain Information from you when participating in the activity. We have no control over these third parties' use of this Information. We encourage you to look at the privacy disclosure of any such third party to learn about their data practices.
Advertising networks. We share certain Information with third parties to provide advertising to you based on your interests. For more information, please see our (i) Cookies and Other Technical Information and (ii) Ad Choices sections below.
Marketing communications and sharing with third parties. We provide you with an opportunity to express your preferences with respect to receiving certain marketing communications from us, and our sharing of Information with trusted partners for their direct marketing purposes. If you ever decide in the future that you would like to update these preferences, you can (i) log in to an account you may have created with us to adjust your settings, or (ii) submit a request through our individual rights request portal here. To opt out of receiving our email marketing communications, you can also follow the "unsubscribe" instructions provided in any marketing email you receive from us. If you previously chose to receive push notifications on your mobile device from us, but no longer wish to receive them, you can manage your preferences through your device or app settings, depending on the type of device.
For more information about interest-based advertising on your desktop or mobile browser, and your ability to opt out of this type of advertising by third parties that participate in self-regulatory programs, please visit Your Online Choice and/or the EDAA Self-Regulatory Initiative for Online Behavioral Advertising. Please note that any opt-out choice you exercise through these programs will apply to interest-based advertising by the third parties you select, but will still allow the collection of data for other purposes, including research, analytics, and internal operations. You can continue to receive advertising, but that advertising will be less relevant to your interests.
You can have more options depending on your mobile device and operating system. For example, most device operating systems (e.g., iOS for Apple phones, Android for Android devices, and Windows for Microsoft devices) provide their own instructions on how to limit or prevent the delivery of tailored in-application advertisements. You can review the support materials and/or the privacy settings for the respective operating systems to learn more about these features and how they apply to tailored in-app advertisements.
Precise location information. To disable the collection of precise location information from your mobile device through our mobile apps, you can access your mobile device settings and choose to limit that collection.

Performance cookies or similar technologies: They collect information about how you use our sites or apps, so that we can analyse traffic and understand users' interactions. We may use third party service providers such as Google Analytics for this purpose who may use their own cookies or similar technologies. The information is used to improve our site or app.
Functionality cookies or similar technologies: They allow our sites or apps to remember choices you make (such as your user name, or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. They can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog.
These cookies are used by advertising companies to serve ads that are relevant to your interests
Social media cookies or similar technologies: They are used when you share information using a social media sharing button or “like” button on our sites or apps, or when you link your account or engage with our content on or through a social media site such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+. The social network will record that you have done this. This information may be linked to targeting/advertising activities.
Advertising cookies or similar technologies: Some of our sites or apps may use a third party advertising network, or Time Warner/Warner Bros. affiliates, to deliver targeted advertising. They may also have the capability to track your browsing across sites, apps and Social Media Sites.
We do not currently take actions to respond to Do Not Track signals because a uniform technological standard has not yet been developed. We continue to review new technologies and may adopt a standard once one is created.
See the Your Choices section to learn how to control data collection for certain purposes. In order to set your cookie preferences, please click on the “Cookies Preferences” button at the bottom of the webpage.
We have a detailed internal retention policy that sets out varying retention periods for different categories of personal information depending on our legal obligations and whether there is a commercial need. After a retention period has elapsed, the personal information is securely deleted.
HOW YOU CAN ACCESS OR CORRECT INFORMATION
Under conditions, you have the right to ask us for a copy of your Information, to correct it, erase it or restrict its processing, and to obtain the Information you provide in a structured, machine readable format. You also have the right to ask us to transfer some of this Information to other organisations.

We reserve the right not to allow access to your Information or to limit your rights (e.g. if such disclosure is prohibited by law or if the rights of another individual might be violated). In some instances, this may mean that we are able to retain your Information even if you withdraw your consent. To exercise these rights, please submit a request through our individual rights request portal here.
We operate internationally, and many of our systems are currently based in the United States, this means Information we collect will be processed by us in the U.S. where data protection and privacy regulations will not offer the same level of protection as in other parts of the world, such as the European Union.
When we transfer your Information to our United States group members outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we make use of standard contractual clauses which have been approved by the European Commission. We also use these clauses when we transfer your Information to third parties outside the EEA or we may adopt other means to ensure that adequate safeguards are applied to your Information (e.g. Privacy Shield, BCR, etc). You may obtain a copy of the documents we use to protect your Information when it is transferred outside the EEA. Please submit a request through our individual rights request portal here.
