Anonymous or Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
Showcase Cinemas automatically collects information from you when you visit its Sites, such as the search engine you used to access the Sites, the previous websites you visited, the websites or advertisements you view or select, the type of Internet browser you use, the computer operating system you use, and your computer’s IP address.

The Showcase Cinemas Sites and Applications permit you to search for movie information, movie show times, and the Showcase Cinemas theaters closest to you. If you use such location-enabled parts of the Applications or similar functionality available at the Showcase Cinemas Sites, you may be sending Showcase Cinemas location information. This information may reveal your precise location, such as GPS signals sent by your mobile device, or your approximate location, from your IP address or the ID of your mobile device or when you submit a zip code or partial address for movie information.

How Does Showcase Cinemas Use Information?

Showcase Cinemas combines anonymous usage information collected from your visit to a Showcase Cinemas Site or use of an Application with that of other users to determine which features and areas of the Site or Application are most popular. By collecting and analyzing this information, Showcase Cinemas can improve its Sites and Applications. This aggregated information does not contain information personally associated with you.
Showcase Cinemas may also update and supplement personally identifiable information collected from you with other information that Showcase Cinemas obtains from third parties or from Showcase Cinemas’ subsidiaries and affiliates. If Showcase Cinemas associates information obtained from affiliates and subsidiaries or other third parties with personally identifiable information collected under this policy, Showcase Cinemas will treat the acquired information like information Showcase Cinemas has acquired itself.
Does Showcase Cinemas Share or Transfer the Information Users Provide?
