This information is not linked to and does not include any personally identifiable information. Cinely will not share your personally identifiable information with any third-parties, with the following exceptions:

  • If Cinely becomes involved in a merger, acquisition, or any form of sale of some or all of its assets, we will ensure the confidentiality of any personal information involved in such transactions and provide notice before personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.
