Information We Collect About You

We collect and store information that you voluntarily provide to us as well as data related to your use of the Site.

To register with us and use the Site, you can log in using credentials from your Google account or register using another email account. By electing to register from your Google account, you permit the Site to access Google account information for purposes of authenticating your log in credentials. When you create an account, you will be asked to provide information including your name, email address and related websites (the information described in this paragraph is collectively referred to here as your “Individual Information”). This Policy applies to information collected by us through your Google log-in; however, your activities outside of the Site on using your Google account are covered by Google’s privacy policy and other terms of use.

In addition, we automatically collect certain aggregate information and analytical data related to your use of the Site (see “Use of Cookies” below). Aggregate information is non-personally identifiable or anonymous information about you, including the date and time of your visit, the IP address of your computer or mobile device, your computer or mobile device browser information, the Internet address that you visited prior to and after reaching the Site, the name of the domain and host you used to access the Internet, the type of mobile device you use, your mobile device’s unique device ID and the features of our Site which you accessed, and your answers to any survey questions on the site. This data is in no way associated with your personally identifiable information.

We utilize the services of certain third party service providers to help provide and improve the Services. To learn more about how we share information with these third party service providers and what information they collect, see the section titled “Disclosure of Information; Third Party Service Providers” below.

Information You Provide and Upload to the Site

The Site permits you to link to and upload materials, including videos and descriptions of consumer products and services. Any content you upload using the Site, whether such content was originated by you or a third party, is collectively referred to here as your “Materials”. Please review our Terms of Use [add jumplink] for warranties and representations we require you to make in connection with your Materials and your use of the Services.

How We Use Information; Data Retention Policy

We use collected information to make available and to improve our high standard of reliable services. We use such information to:

  • respond to inquiries or service requests and monitor such responses;
  • provide information about and market our products or services;
  • resolve problems; and
  • manage the Site and assess its usage and usage of the Services.

You can terminate your account at any time by emailing us at customerservice@shopmeet.tv. We will retain Individual Information for as long as you use the Site and for 90 days thereafter. We will retain Aggregate Data for up to 90 days and may store it thereafter in the aggregate. If you’d like us to delete your Individual Information that you have provided to the Site, please contact us at privacy@shopmeet.tv and we will respond within 30 days.

Disclosure of Information; Third Party Service Providers

We do not sell or rent personally identifiable information to third parties who are not affiliates of the Company. We may, however, disclose personally identifiable information to appropriate affiliates of the Company, including strategic alliance affiliates and third party service providers, to respond to a request for service or to provide information about available products or services. As an integral part of the Services, you can choose to link your PayPal account to your Site account to receive payments for items that are sold using links on a page that you create. To make this possible, your name, billing address and information related to such purchases are shared via secure (encrypted) means with PayPal for the sole purpose of processing payment to you. Please note that any banking or credit card information (number, expiration date, security code) you provide is provided directly to PayPal and is stored by such third party and not us, and as such, is subject to PayPal’s privacy policy. It is important that you review the privacy policy of our third party processor to understand how your information is collected and processed. You hereby acknowledge and agree that we are not affiliated in any way with PayPal and that we have no responsibility or liability for the services provided by PayPal or PayPal’s acts or omissions.

Except as set forth above, we do not disclose information to non-affiliated third parties except in response to a subpoena, warrant, court order, or other comparable legal process, including subpoenas from private parties in a civil action. If the subpoena seeks information about an identified user or limited group of users, we’ll make reasonable business efforts, where permitted, to contact the user(s) before providing information to the party that requests it. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to contact the user(s) in all cases, whether because of a time limit, court order, inability to effectively contact a user, or for any other reason. In addition to the foregoing, we disclose information that we, in good faith, believe is appropriate to cooperate in investigations of fraud or other illegal activity, or to conduct investigations of violations of our Terms of Use.

We may disclose information to your agent or legal representative (such as the holder of a power of attorney that you grant, or a guardian appointed for you).

We share information with companies that provide public relations and marketing services for us. Such information will only be shared by us to customize, measure and improve our products, Services and advertising; it will not be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes. These third parties are obligated to protect your information and are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose.

As with any other business, it is possible that in the future we could merge with or be acquired by another company or entity. If such an acquisition occurs, the successor entity would have access to the information maintained by us, including customer account information, but would continue to be bound by this Policy unless and until it is amended.

We share your information with our parent, subsidiaries and joint ventures to help coordinate the Services we provide to you, enforce our Terms of Use, and promote trust and safety.

We may share aggregate (non-personally identifiable) information with certain third parties such as advertisers, national industry organizations, and prospective affiliates. We are not limited in our use of your non-personal information that does not permit direct association with any specific individual, or non-identifiable aggregate information about our users (such as the number of users of our Services, the geographic distribution of our users, the amount of information located and/or removed, etc.). We collect and use anonymous aggregated and/or statistical data reflecting your use of the Site and Services and may use such data for tracking, reporting and other activities in connection with our business.

Use of Cookies

“Cookies” are simple text files stored on your computer for use by a browser. Certain Site features may only be available through the placement of a cookie. We may use “cookies” to assist in data collection and to track visitor Site usage and trends to help us better serve you. The use of cookies is a standard practice among Internet web sites; most Internet browsers permit a user to accept, decline or delete cookies. This Site works with a first party cookie that collects anonymous traffic data at the Site.

We use persistent cookies to make it easier for you to navigate the Site. Specifically, we use persistent cookies to track whether you are logged into the Site as you view different pages on the Site. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” file.

We use cookies to compile aggregate data about Site traffic and Site interaction so that we can offer better Site experiences and tools in the future. We set a persistent cookie to store how you came to the Site and what listings and Content (as defined in the Terms of Use) you view. We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our Site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.

If you reject cookies, you will still be able to view the Site, but your ability to use some areas of the Site, such as automatically-generated recommendations, will be limited. You will be unable to log into the Site if you reject cookies.

Some of our business partners (e.g., analytical tracking software providers) use cookies and tracking technologies on the Site. We have no access to or control over these cookies or tracking technologies. This Policy covers the use of cookies on the Sites and by us only and does not cover the use of cookies or tracking technologies by any such business partner. Some browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” features. Most of these features, when turned on, send a signal or preference to the web sites you visit indicating that you do not wish to be tracked. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret the Do Not Track signal, we do not currently respond to the browser Do Not Track signals on the Site.

Account Security

The security of your account relies on your protection of your user name and password. You are responsible for maintaining the security of your user name and password. You are solely responsible for any and all activities that occur under your account. If you believe someone else has obtained access to your password, please change it immediately by logging in to your account on the Site and changing your Profile settings.

Children’s Privacy

This Site and our Services are not directed to person under the age of 13 and each user must be at least the age of majority in his or her state of residence to register with the Site and use the Services. If you become aware that your child has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us at privacy@shopmeet.tv. We do not knowingly collect or solicit information from, market to or accept services from children. If we become aware that any minor who is not at least the age of majority in his or her state of residence has provided us with personal information, we will take steps to remove such information and, if applicable, terminate the offending account.

Effective Date; Policy Changes

Each time you use the Site, the current version of this Policy will apply. Accordingly, when you use the Site, you should check the date of this Policy (which appears at the top of the Policy) and review any changes since the last version. Our business changes frequently and this Policy is subject to change from time to time. Unless stated otherwise, our current Policy applies to all information that we have about you. We will not materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.

Governing Law; Notice to California Residents

This Policy is governed by the laws of the State of California without giving effect to any principles of conflict of law. Please note that our Services are designed for compliance with United States data privacy and security regulations. The United States and other countries have not harmonized their privacy regulations. We have written this Policy to satisfy United States regulations and the users of the Site and Services agree to that level of privacy protection.
