1. SCOPE AND APPLICATION
The Services are for a general audience, are not targeted to children, and do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 years of age.
The following information is collected from or about you:
Registration Information is the information you submit to register for a Service, for example, to create an account, post comments, receive a newsletter, or enter a contest or sweepstakes. Registration Information may include, for example, name, email address and gender.
Public Information and Posts consist of comments or content that you post to the Services and the information about you that accompanies those posts or content, which may include a name, user name, comments, likes, status, profile information and picture. Public Information and Posts are always public, which means they are available to everyone and may be displayed in search results on external search engines.
Activity Information. When you access and interact with the Services, certain information about those visits may be collected. For example, in order to permit your connection to the Services, servers of the Service receive and record information about your computer, device, and browser, including potentially your IP address, browser type, authentication identifiers, and other software or hardware information. If you access the Services from a mobile or other device, a unique device identifier assigned to that device, geolocation data (including your precise location), or other transactional information for that device may be collected in order to provide the Services to it.
Cookies and other tracking technologies (such as browser cookies, pixels, beacons, and Adobe Flash technology including cookies), which are comprised of small bits of data may also be used. Websites, apps and other services send this data to your browser when you first request a web page and then store the data on your computer or other device so the website, app or other service can access information when you make subsequent requests for pages from that website, app or other service. These technologies may also be used to collect and store information about your usage of the Services, such as pages you have visited, the videos and other content you have viewed, search queries you have run and advertisements you have seen. Cookies may also be used to collect and store information on your use of other companies’ websites or services, such as sites you visit and materials you view. This information may be merged with other data collected about you from third parties to assist in providing the Services, including, without limitation, to advertise and provide content to you. These practices are compliant with the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Principles for the Self-Regulation of Online Behavioral Advertising. To learn more, visit www.aboutads.info/choices.
Third parties that support the Services by serving advertisements or providing services, such as allowing you to share content or tracking aggregate Services usage statistics, may also use these technologies to collect similar information when you use the Services or third party services. These third parties may also use these technologies, along with Activity Information they collect, to recognize you across the devices you use, such as a mobile device and a laptop or other computer. The Services do not control these third party technologies and their use is governed by the privacy policies of third parties using such technologies. For more information about third-party advertising networks and similar entities that use these technologies, including your choices with respect to them, see the section entitled “To deliver relevant advertisements,” below.

The Services that enable you to view video content may feature Nielsen’s proprietary measurement software which will allow you to contribute to market research, like Nielsen’s TV Ratings. The information is collected directly by Nielsen’s software within the Service.
No representation or warranty is being made to you regarding the Nielsen software.

If you do not wish to participate in Nielsen’s digital measurement research, please visit http://www.nielsen.com/digitalprivacy#choice to learn more about your choices and how to opt-out.
Information from Other Sources. To improve the quality of the Services, the information collect from you may be supplemented with information from other sources, such as publicly available information from social media services, commercially available sources and information from Affiliates or business partners.
Do Not Track Signals. At this time the Services do not respond to browser 'Do Not Track' signals, as the work of interested stakeholders and others to develop standards for how such signals should be interpreted is ongoing.
The personal information and other information collected from or about you is used for the following purposes:
To provide and manage the Service. The information collected from or about you is used to provide the Services and features to you, including to measure and improve those Services and features; and to develop new products and services; to improve and personalize your experience with both online and off-line Services by delivering content you will find relevant and interesting, including advertising and marketing messages; to allow you to comment on content, and participate in online games, contests, other promotions or rewards programs; to provide you with customer support and to respond to inquiries. In order to provide you with content and advertising that is more interesting and relevant to you, the information from or about you may be used to make inferences and predictions about your potential areas of interest. When the information collected from or about you does not identify you as a specific person, it may be used for any purpose or share it with third parties, to the extent permitted by applicable law.
To allow service providers to assist in providing and managing the Services. The information collected from or about you may be made available to certain third party service providers, such as contractors, analytics and other measurement companies, agents or sponsors, who help analyze and understand your use of the Services, and manage and/or provide the Services.
To deliver video content. In the ordinary course of our business, the information collected from or about you may be shared with third parties in order to process your requests and fulfill your orders for video content offered through the Services, including, to provide you with access to localized content and provide video content recommendations. For example, to process your request to view certain authenticated video content through the Services, information about you may be shared, including, without limitation, what you have viewed, with your designated television content provider and/or our third party service providers in order to authenticate and/or authorize you to view authenticated video content through the Services.
To contact you. Certain promotional materials (e.g., newsletters or email updates) or notifications related to the Services may periodically be sent to the email address you provided to us at registration or for your account. If you want to stop receiving promotional materials from the Service, follow the unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email. There are certain service notification emails that you may not opt-out of, such as notifications of changes to the Services or policies. If you have installed a mobile app and you wish to stop receiving push notifications, you can change the settings either on your mobile device or through the app.
To share with business partners. Your information may be shared with business partners to permit them to send you marketing communications consistent with your choices.
To complete a merger or sale of assets. If all or part of the Services are sold or made part of a sale or transfer of assets or are otherwise involved in a merger or transfer (including, without limitation, in connection with bankruptcy or a similar proceeding), your information may be transferred to the party or parties involved in the transaction as part of that transaction.
When the information collected from or about you does not identify you as a specific person, that information may be used for any purpose or share it with third parties.
Commercially reasonable administrative, technical, personnel and physical measures are used to safeguard your information in the possession of the Services against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification. However, no one can guarantee the complete safety of your information.
If you would like to access, review, correct, update, suppress, or otherwise limit our use of your personal information you have previously provided directly to the Services, you may request to do so by contacting us using the mechanisms provided below. In your request, please include your email address, name, address, and telephone number and specify clearly what information you would like to access, change, update and/or whether you would like to have your personal information suppressed from our database, or if you have other questions about your personal information. We will try to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable.
If you are an eligible registered user of the Service and under 18, you may ask to remove content or information that you have posted to that Service by contacting us using the mechanisms provided below. We will try to comply with your request(s) as soon as reasonably practicable.

If you are a California resident, you may request that we not share your personal information on a going-forward basis with Affiliates or unaffiliated third parties for their direct marketing purposes by contacting us using the mechanisms below. We will try to comply with your request(s) as soon as reasonably practicable.
Remember that even after you cancel your account, copies of some information from your account may remain viewable in some circumstances where, for example, you have shared information with social media or Other Services. Because of the nature of caching technology, your account may not be instantly inaccessible to others and there may be a delay in the removal of the content from elsewhere on the Internet and from search engines. Backup information related to your account may also be retained on servers for some time after cancelation for fraud detection or to comply with applicable law or internal security policies. It is not always possible to completely remove or delete all of your information due to technical constraints, contractual, financial or legal requirements.
