This Policy supplements but does not supersede nor replace any other consents you may have previously provided to HBO Asia in respect of your Personal Data, and your consents herein are additional to any rights which we may have at law to collect, use or disclose your Personal Data.

In this Policy, "Personal Data" refers to any personally identifiable data, whether true, or not, about an individual who can be identified (a) from such data, or (b) from such data and/or other information to which we have or are likely to have access, including data in our records which may be updated from time to time.

Examples of such Personal Data you may provide to us include (depending on the nature of your interaction with us) your name, identification/passport number, mailing address, email address, telephone number(s), network data, age, information about your interests in and use of various products, programs and/or services and any other information relating to any individuals which you have provided us in any forms you may have submitted to us, or via other forms of interaction with you.

If you provide us with any Personal Data relating to a third party (e.g. information of your spouse, children, parents, and/or employees), by submitting such information to us, you represent to us that you have obtained the consent of the third party to provide us with their Personal Data for the respective purposes.

You should ensure that all Personal Data submitted to us is complete, accurate, true and correct. Failure on your part to do so may result in our inability to provide you with the products, programs and/or services you have requested.

Use, Processing, Transfer and Disclosure of Personal Data

We may use or share the information collected from you among each other, and with our vendors, affiliates, partners and distributors, including, without limitation to fulfill your requests for our products, programs and/or services, to respond to your inquiries about our offerings, and to offer you other products, programs and/or services that we believe may be of interest to you, and/or in relation to any marketing and/or promotional activities with respect to our products, programs and/or services.

We sometimes use or share this information among each other, and with our vendors, affiliates, partners and distributors, to communicate with you, such as to notify you when you have won one of our contests or when we make changes to our subscriber agreements, to conduct a survey, poll or research, to fulfill a request by you for marketing and promotional information and/or materials about us and/or our products, programs and/or services, or to contact you about your account with us.

The information we collect in connection with our online community (including the internet and/or social media platforms) is used to provide an interactive experience, facilitate participation in this online community and, from time to time, offer you products, programs and/or services.

We may also use third party vendors to perform certain services, such as hosting the site, fulfilling your requests for products, programs and/or services, designing and/or operating the site’s features, tracking the site's activities and analytics, and enabling us to send you special offers or performing other administrative services. These vendors may be provided with access to certain information, including, without limitation, user information, Device Identifiers (defined below) and Personal Data, to carry out the services they are performing. Third party analytics service providers may be used for purposes such as to evaluate and provide us with information about the site and viewing of our site and content thereon. These vendors may set and access their own Tracking Technologies on your Device (as each term is defined below) and they may otherwise collect or have access to information about you. Please recognize that we and/or our authorized third party vendors may store this information, and may share this information with other parties as necessary to process your transactions and provide you access to the site and/or certain resources thereof. This information may also be used for internal review and analysis of the site, the customer service process, and user comments.

The information that we collect may sometimes be used to improve the design and content of our site and to enable us to personalize your HBOAsia.com experience. This information may also be used to analyze site and device usage and traffic in the aggregate, as well as to offer you products, programs, and/or services. Such information may also be shared in the aggregate to enable partners, prospective partners, affiliates or third parties (such as market research companies, movie studios, content owners, cable and satellite companies, etc.) to analyze site traffic, such as how often a particular page was visited.

We may disclose Personal Data in response to legal process and/or government requests, for example, in response to a court order, a subpoena or an official request from a government and/or law enforcement authority. Personal Data and other information may also be used or disclosed to third parties in connection with fraud-scoring, detection, and prevention activities or where it is believed to be necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of the Terms of Use, to protect our rights and the rights of others, and as otherwise required by law.

On occasion, your information may be combined with additional records (such as information from affiliated companies, partners, operators, or outside vendors, and publicly available information, including on social media sites). The combined information may be used for purposes such as to market products, features, or services that may be of interest to you, for research and analytics purposes, and to assist in providing, personalizing and improving the site and other offerings.

In the event of a sale of assets or change in ownership, such information may be transferred to a successor, assign or any person or entity that acquires ownership or control of the business or the site via any means.

Agents and contractors of HBO Asia who have access to Personal Data for purposes of data processing are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Policy by, for example, not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for HBO Asia.

Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that Personal Data that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Policy.

Finally, we will not use or transfer Personal Data provided to us in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you with an opportunity to opt out of these unrelated uses.

Collection of Information by Third-Party Sites and Sponsors

Our site may contain links to other sites whose information practices may be different than ours. Visitors should consult the other sites' privacy notices as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.

Our site sometimes may offer content (e.g. contests or promotions) that is sponsored by or co-branded with identified third parties. By virtue of these relationships, the third parties may obtain Personal Data that visitors voluntarily submit to participate in the site activity. HBO Asia has no control over these parties' use of this information.

On or as part of the site, third party ad servers may present or serve advertisements, provide us with data collection, reporting, ad response measurement, and site analytics, and assist with delivery of relevant marketing messages and advertisements. These third parties may view, edit, or set their own cookies. They may also collect information concerning your online activities over time and across different websites.
