What information we collect and why
If you’re just browsing a Site, whether you have an account or not, we use common internet technologies, such as cookies and web server logs, to collect basic information about all website visitors including the visitor’s browser type, language preference, referring site, additional websites requested, and the date and time of each visitor request. We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. This is needed to better understand our website traffic, and to monitor and protect the security of the website.
If you create an account on our website we will ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information, which could include your name, username, email address, postal address, Skype and other contact details, whether you are of legal age, your payment preferences, your feedback, and other details. Information related to your computer will be recorded if you use any software from our website.
When we use the YouTube API Services, the user information that is collected, stored, or otherwise used, includes profile, email, channel and video metadata, and channel analytics. This information is needed to determine what aspects of the service you may access, to enable the appropriate account services, and to generate reports for you.
We do not request nor intentionally collect sensitive private information, such as related to health or religion.
How we use or share your information
The information we collect will be used to keep you updated regarding the website, on the latest versions of our software and services, announcements, updates and upcoming events. The information also helps us plan and improve our products and services, including things like collaboration or brand deal opportunities.
From time to time we will use your information for data analysis, research and development, sponsorships and other similar contests and/or promotions, as well as publishing aggregated statistics (such as subscriber count) or public information (such as channel name) in affiliation with the Company.
If you’ve linked a channel to us by accepting our invitation in your YouTube Dashboard, we will allow third party sponsorship providers to validate whether your channel is linked should you apply for that sponsorship. We will also share the requisite information if you’ve signed up for other platforms we’ve integrated with. We may host advertising on our website, as well as embed content from third party sites such as YouTube.
We may share your information if we are involved in a merger, sale, or acquisition. If any such change of ownership happens, we will ensure that it is under terms that preserve the confidentiality of your information, and we will notify you on our website or by email before any transfer of your information.
We may share information with governmental agencies or other companies assisting us in fraud prevention or investigation. We may do so when:
- permitted or required by law; or,
- trying to protect against or prevent actual or potential fraud or unauthorized transactions; or,
- investigating fraud which has already taken place. The information is not provided to these companies for marketing purposes.
You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our website due to dependencies of functionality.
Our use of third party analytics provider and interest-based advertising
In addition to the tracking technologies we place, other companies may set their own cookies or similar tools when you visit the website. This includes companies we’ve engaged to provide services on our behalf (like website analytics), as well as third parties that deliver content (like videos from YouTube) or offers (like ads from ad networks) contained on the website. We may receive reports from these companies on an individual or aggregate basis.
Specifically for information accessed via YouTube API Services, you can revoke the website’s access to this information via the Google security settings page when signed into your relevant Google account.
We use physical, technical, and organizational security safeguards to help protect your private information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we use computer systems with limited access in controlled facilities to store private information.
However, please note that no server, communications network, or data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. This website is no exception. We cannot guarantee the security of any information transmitted through the website and make no assurances about our ability to prevent any such loss or misuse.
It’s up to you whether you’d like to share private information with us; if you do, you’re acknowledging and agreeing that you’re doing so at your own risk.
Information is kept only as long as necessary for the purposes set out above; after that point, data may be kept only for statistical purposes. Note that accounts that violate the Company’s Terms of Service, are inactive for at least six months, or as required under rules like the European Union’s GDPR, will be purged. At any time, you may delete any data you provided when signed into our website.
