All information gathered is to increase the functionality of the site.
SF, the channel owned and operated by TV1 General Entertainment Partnership ABN 19 282 021, recognizes the valuable potential of technology to help people communicate with the companies whose websites they visit, particularly through customer databases.
Responsible use of the information you share with SF is paramount. In order to help you understand the role technology plays in the collection and use of information you provide SF, the following guidelines have been created.
In general, you can visit SF sites while remaining anonymous by not providing any personal information. In some cases, SF may automatically collect information about you that is not personally identifiable. Examples of this type of information include the type of internet browser you are using, the type of computer operating system you are using, the domain name of your internet service provider and/or the website from which you linked to the SF site or advertisement. No more than the kind of information every web site collects.
SF will not collect any personally identifiable information about you (e.g., your name, address, telephone number, or email address) unless you provide it to us voluntarily (for example: when registering, entering contests, or requesting a programme reminder etc.). SF's purpose for gathering such information is to enhance your online experience by understanding you better and also to make you aware of new films or offers in which you may be interested or, in the event you may win a prize, to effect its delivery to you by us or a third party authorised by SF.
When you do provide us with personally identifiable information, we will take all reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the information you share with us.
However, SF may use such information and provide it to third parties in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).
SF has no intention of collecting any personally identifiable information (e.g: name, address, telephone number, or email address) from individuals under 18 years of age. Unless otherwise disclosed during collection, SF will not provide any personally identifying information it knowingly receives from individuals under 18 to any third party for any purposes whatsoever. Where appropriate, SF will specifically instruct individuals under 18 not to submit such information on our websites or advertisements without the consent of a parent or guardian.
If a child has provided us with personally identifiable information, a parent or guardian of that child can have the information removed simply by accessing the registration page of the web site. This automatically deletes all records from our files.
Parents are also encouraged to spend time online with their children to become familiar with the types of content available on SF's websites and the internet in general. Control tools are available from online services and software manufacturers to create a safe environment for kids.
Children are allowed to participate in competitions with the prior consent of a parent or guardian. If a child wins, notification and prizes are sent to the parent or guardian on the entry form for the given activity. No information collected from individuals 18 years of age or under is used or will be used for any marketing or promotional purposes whatsoever, other than for internal analysis purposes to better understand visitor use of our sites.

With most internet browsers, you can erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions.
