USeek, Inc. PRIVACY POLICY

Last updated (Tuesday, October 3, 2017 || 10:41am PST)

This Privacy Policy ("Privacy Policy") describes USeek, Inc.’s privacy practices for USeek Interactive Videos (the “USeek videos”). The USeek videos are the interactive services that are offered by USeek, Inc. for use on mobile devices, tablets, personal computers and any other devices that connect to the Internet. Some of the USeek videos are intended for children and some are intended for older audiences. By accessing any of the USeek videos, you are consenting to this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy describes what information the USeek videos collect from users, including children, when they interact with USeek videos; how such information is used and stored; when such information may be disclosed to third parties; how users, parents, and guardians can control the use and disclosure of collected information; and how information is protected.

Our users' privacy, especially our child users’ privacy is important to us, and we recognize the need to provide additional privacy protection for children utilizing USeek videos. Our privacy practices are guided by the United States' Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, as well as data privacy laws in the United States and other applicable countries. Younger visitors should always check with their parents or guardians before entering information on any website or mobile application and we encourage families to discuss their household guidelines regarding the online sharing of personal information. There are currently no USeek videos to which this Privacy Policy applies that are directed to children under 13 years of age.

I. INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE.

We may request or collect certain information when you interact with a USeek video. However, visitors are required to share only the information that is reasonably necessary to participate in the particular activity.

A. Registration Information:

The information required to register varies by USeek video, but may include:

• Email Address

• Facebook Connect Access

If the USeek video is directed/targeted at children under 13 no registration information will be requested. 

Registration information is used to enable visitors to log into their accounts across different devices and platforms, store points, collect offers, receive communications and offers from USeek, Inc. and its promotion partners. Please see the terms and conditions for the specific video to see who the promotion partners are. 

Certain non-child-directed USeek videos may offer users opportunities to enter their email address for a chance to win a grand prize or collect a promotion. Grand Prizes are awarded to users who earn the most points over a predetermined time frame. Time frames are set forth in the USeek video’s terms and conditions. Points are earned through interaction, repeat plays, social sharing and registration. In order to store their points, users will be required to register.

The grand prize winning user(s) may be asked to supply personal information to collect their prize. The applicant may be required to supply other pertinent personal information including, without limitation, full name, postal address, & telephone number. (Additional personal information and other information may be requested during the application process (but may not be required). Such submissions are also subject to the policies regarding such respective programs.

B. Social Platform Registrations and Social Media Plugins:

USeek videos permit or require users who are at least 13 years old to register or log into their account via a social networking platform such as Login with Facebook, or permit you to use social media plugins such as the Facebook & Twitter “post to feed / sharing”. When you use these social networking platforms and plugins, your username for the services and other information available about you or collected from you on these services may be shared with us.

When you use social networking platforms and plugins, you share your information with them and their privacy policy applies to their collection, use, and disclosure of such information. In addition, they may be able to collect information about you, including your activity using USeek videos, and they may notify your connections on the social networking platform about your use of USeek videos. Such services may also employ unique identifiers which allow your activity to be monitored across multiple websites for purposes of delivering more targeted advertising to you.

Please note that their privacy policies may be different from our own and we encourage you to read them.

C. Computer Information Collected by Us:

When visitors interact with a USeek video, we may automatically collect certain information from their computers or mobile devices, such as the type of computer operating system (e.g., Windows XP or Mac OS), the visitor's IP address, the web browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome and Firefox), UDID (for certain mobile devices), interactions with e-mail messages sent by USeek, Inc. or any of its customers (e.g., links clicked on and whether the messages were opened or forwarded), information collected through the use of unique identifiers such as cookies (see below), information regarding the Internet service provider, and other standard server log information ("Computer Information").

This Privacy Policy does not, unless specifically stated, apply to any personal information or other information collected by any other company or collected in any other manner or by any other website, application or other interactive service offered by the sites hosting USeek videos. Such information collection may be governed by separate privacy policies or notices.

We may use cookies, web beacons, tokens or similar technologies (collectively referred to as "Tracking Technologies") within the USeek video. "Cookies" (which may be html files, Flash files or other technology) are text files that help store user activities within the interactive player. "Web beacons" (also known as image tags, gif or web bugs) are small pieces of code used to collect advertising data, such as counting page views, promotion views or advertising responses. "Tokens" are unique persistent identifiers that are generated and sent from a server, such as Adobe's Pass service, to a user's device to identify an interaction session, such as the authentication for a user's cable service provider, and which are usually stored as an HTTP cookie. The Site and/or third parties may use Tracking Technologies to collect Computer Information automatically as you browse the Site and the web.

We may use Tracking Technologies to help tailor our content, allow users to move between certain USeek videos without entering information at the end of each video, enable the internal functioning of the interactive video, understand interactive video and internet usage, improve or customize the content, offerings within the video, understand your interactions with email messages originating from USeek, Inc. (such as the links clicked on and whether the messages were opened or forwarded), save your online game or video player settings. These Tracking Technologies collect "click stream" data and additional other information regarding your interactions with USeek videos (such as your instream clicks, play/pausing or use of end screen features) and may also collect your IP address or some other identifier unique to the device you use to access the site ("Identifier"). An Identifier may be automatically assigned to any device you use to access USeek videos.

By interacting with a USeek video, whether as a registered user or otherwise, you acknowledge, understand and hereby agree that you are giving us your consent to set and access Cookies on your device and track your activities and your use of a Site through these Tracking Technologies and Identifiers and that we may use Tracking Technologies in the emails we send to you.

USeek, Inc. does not behaviorally target advertising to children under 13 on sites that are directed to children or where USeek, Inc. has actual knowledge that a user is under 13. USeek, Inc. is an ad platform and advertising around it is controlled by 3rd party sites, platforms and social networks.

Our Third Party Advertising Service Providers (as defined in Section D) do not have access to Tracking Technologies utilized within a USeek video except to the extent necessary to provide services to the Site. The Third Party Advertising Service Providers, as well as advertisers, may themselves set and access their own Tracking Technologies on your Device if you choose to have Tracking Technologies enabled in your browser (or, for Flash cookies, if you have not removed them) and/or they may otherwise have access to other information about you.

You have a number of options with respect to the Tracking Technologies set by USeek, Inc.:

  • You can prevent the use of certain Tracking Technologies (other than Flash cookies) by using the controls in your Web browser. To do so, you must complete both of the steps following your browser type below:
  •  

Internet Explorer

  • Delete existing Tracking Technologies through the "Internet Options" sub-option of the "Tools" menu option of your browser or otherwise as directed by your browser's support feature; and
  • Disable future Tracking Technologies by using the same browser controls. Additional information on disabling most Tracking Technologies may be available through your browser's support feature. (See the "help" section of your browser for more information.)
  • Google Chrome
  • Delete existing Tracking Technologies through the "Clear Browsing Data..." sub-option of the "Tools" menu option of your browser or otherwise as directed by your browser's support feature; and
  • Disable future Tracking Technologies by using the same browser controls. Additional information on disabling most Tracking Technologies may be available through your browser's support feature. (See the "help" section of your browser for more information.)

Mozilla Firefox

  • Delete existing Tracking Technologies through the "Clear Recent History..." sub-option of the "History" menu option of your browser or otherwise as directed by your browser's support feature; and
  • Disable future Tracking Technologies by using the same browser controls. Additional information on disabling most Tracking Technologies may be available through your browser's support feature. (See the "help" section of your browser for more information.)
  • You may be able to have the device you use to access USeek video videos warn you each time a cookie or most other Tracking Technologies is being set (other than Flash cookies), or you can choose to turn off such warnings. This is done through your browser on the device you use to access USeek video. Additional information on warnings and removal of warnings may be available through your browser's support feature.
  • Please note that deleting, rejecting, disabling or turning off Tracking Technologies through the above options will not remove Flash cookies. For more information about Flash cookies and how to remove them from your computer, please click here.
  • Please be aware that certain areas and features of USeek video can only be accessed in conjunction with Tracking Technologies, and that disabling Tracking Technologies might prevent you from accessing such content.

D. Computer Information Collected By Others:

Third parties may collect, use or disclose cookie information, IP addresses or other identifiers from devices and/or browsers where USeek videos are hosted. Please refer to their privacy policy for more details.   

Among the service providers we engage USeek videos use a variety of third-party advertising networks, data exchanges, traffic measurement service providers, marketing analytics service providers, and other third-party service providers (collectively, "Third Party Advertising Service Providers"). Third Party Advertising Service Providers may also be used to facilitate targeting of advertisements and measure and analyze advertising effectiveness ("Targeting Services").

These Third Party Advertising Service Providers do not have access to Tracking Technologies set by USeek videos except to the extent necessary to provide services to USeek videos and their hosting sites and promotion partners.

You should be aware that different rules might apply to the collection, use or disclosure of your information by third parties in connection with their advertisements, promotions and other websites you encounter on the Internet. The use of such technology by these third parties is within their control and not within the control of USeek, Inc. or the USeek videos. Even if we have a relationship with the third party, we do not control those sites or their policies and practices regarding your information and those sites may use the information they collect from you consistent with their own privacy policies, which we encourage you to review. We encourage you to research and direct any of your questions in this regard to these third parties.

With respect to the Tracking Technologies set by Third Party Advertising Service Providers and advertisers (and outside the control of USeek, Inc. or the USeek videos), you have a number of options:

You can opt-out of the use of information for these advertising purposes by using two such Third Party Advertising Service Providers, Adobe and DoubleClick, by using those providers' opt-out tools. You can access Adobe's tool at http://www.donottarget.com/ and DoubleClick's tool at http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/technologies/ads/.

Please note the following with respect to opting out of Tracking Technologies set by Third Party Advertising Service Providers and advertisers:

The opt-out tools discussed above are "cookie based." This means that the tools rely on cookies to remember your choices with respect to the use of your information by the parties that offer you those choices. If you opt-out but then use the controls in your browser to delete all Tracking Technologies, you may have to opt-out again, a second time, in order to re-establish your opt-out preferences.

Opt-outs are browser-specific. This means, for example, that if you opt out while using Internet Explorer 9, this choice will not affect the collection of information collected by Tracking Technologies when you use Mozilla Firefox on the same device. It also means that opting out on one device will not affect the collection of information by Tracking Technologies on other devices you may use to access the Useek videos.

You also can prevent the use of certain Tracking Technologies (other than Flash cookies) on a particular device by using the controls in your Web browser. To do so, you must complete both of the following steps:

Delete existing Tracking Technologies through the "Internet Options" sub-option of the "Tools" menu option of your browser or otherwise as directed by your browser's support feature; and

Disable future Tracking Technologies by using the same browser controls. Additional information on disabling most Tracking Technologies may be available through your browser's support feature. (See the "help" section of your browser for more information.)

You may be able to set the device you use to access the Useek videos to warn you each time a cookie or most other Tracking Technologies is being set (other than Flash cookies), or you can choose to turn off such warnings. This is done through your browser on the device you use to access the Useek videos. Additional information on warnings and removal of warnings may be available through your browser's support feature.

Opting-out of, deleting, rejecting, disabling or turning off Third Party Advertising Service Providers' Tracking Technologies does not mean that you will no longer receive online ads. Opting-out of, deleting, rejecting, disabling or turning off Third Party Advertising Service Providers' Tracking Technologies only means that such ads will no longer be tailored to your specific viewing habits or interests, but you will continue to see ads on Useek videos.

E. Contests, Sweepstakes and Promotions:

The USeek videos may offer online contests and promotions. To enter these contests or promotions, you may be required to provide your email address and/or additional information required for the management of the contest or promotion.

Within USeek videos that are directed to children under 13 or where we have actual knowledge that a user is a child under 13, we may collect the child's e-mail address to enter the child in the contest or promotion, store such child's email address for the duration of the contest or promotion, and use it for notification if he or she is the winner.

For certain contests or promotions on such sites, we may ask for the email address of the child's parent or guardian to inform the parent or guardian of his or her child's entry and give the parent or guardian the option to have the child's entry deleted.

F. Electronic Newsletters:

Users may provide their email addresses to receive email confirming their registration and storage of points after playing a USeek video. Users may change their preferences regarding emails at any time through the unsubscribe link in the newsletters.

G. Geolocation Information:

We may collect and store information about your geographic location, but we will only collect precise geolocation information sufficient to identify the name of a city or town on USeek videos that either are directed to users over 13 or when we have actual knowledge that a user is over 13 years old and only if you enable your computer or mobile device to send us location information. We use this information, for example, to enable visitors to take advantage of Site offerings; respond to visitor's requests for products, services, and information; manage games; customize the content visitors see when visiting USeek videos; and to offer visitors special offers and promotions from USeek videos, as well as on behalf of selected third parties offering products, programs or services that we believe may be of interest to our visitors. By accepting this Privacy Policy and using the applicable Site, you hereby consent to the collection and storage of such geolocation information as described above.

H. Other Data Collection and Use.

We may collect search query information when visitors search for information on the Useek videos. We also may collect information from visitors when they contact us with questions and comments.

We may use this information, along with any of the other information described above, to (i) analyze use of USeek videos and understand and improve our service offerings; (ii) prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities; and (iii) for any other purposes disclosed to you at the time we collect your information or pursuant to your consent.

We may combine information collected through USeek videos with information we collect from other sources (e.g., social media integration services and offline records or publicly available information). It is your responsibility to provide complete and accurate information and to keep such information up to date. We are not responsible for any problem or liability arising from your failure to do so.

II. DISCLOSURE TO THIRD PARTIES.

We may share your information with third parties for the limited purposes described below. In the U.S., parents of children under the age of 13 have the option of consenting to the collection and use of their child's personal information without consenting to the disclosure of that information to certain third parties.

A. Law Enforcement and Safety.

You acknowledge, consent, and agree to the extent legally permissible in your jurisdiction to allow us to access, preserve, and/or disclose the information we collect and/or content you provide to us (including information you may have posted on bulletin boards or internal site communication systems) to a law enforcement agency or other third parties if required to do so by law or with a good faith belief that such access, preservation, or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with legal process; (b) enforce the Terms of Use of the respective USeek videos; (c) respond to claims that the content violates the rights of third parties; (d) respond to your requests for customer service; or (e) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of the owners of the USeek videos, any user of the USeek videos, a third party or the general public. We also may disclose user information whenever we believe disclosure is necessary to limit our legal liability; to protect or defend our rights or property; or protect the safety, rights, or property of others.

If you have concerns about the conduct of a particular user, please send an e-mail to support@useek.com. This email is not to contact us about the status of your account.

B. Agents.

Information collected through USeek videos may be transferred, disclosed or shared with third parties engaged by us to handle and deliver certain activities, such as message boards, sweepstakes and contests, e-cards, payment processing, newsletters, and advisory boards, and to perform other technical and processing functions, such as sending postal mail and email, maintaining data integrity, programming operations, user services or technology services. We may provide these third parties information collected as needed to perform their functions, but they are prohibited from using it for other purposes and specifically agree to maintain the confidentiality of such information. Some of these agents, such as payment processors, may request additional information during the course of offering their services. Before you provide additional information to third party agents, we encourage visitors to review their privacy policies and information collection practices.

C. Third Parties/Advertisers.

Some USeek videos partner with outside third parties to provide you with additional content, products, or services that we believe may be of interest. For example, we may partner with a greeting card company, software manufacturer, social media plugin provider, mobile phone provider or cable television service provider to offer you electronic cards, games, social networking, text messaging services or customized video content. These partners operate websites and services that are separate and independent from USeek, Inc. and that may have their own privacy policies. If you consent or register with one of our partners, that means you grant USeek, Inc.  permission to give your registration and other information, including e-mail address, to that third party. If you have identified yourself as residing in the EU, we will not share your email address or other personally identifiable information with third parties for advertising purposes unless you have "opted-in."

In addition, Third Party Advertising Service Providers may use their own Tracking Technologies to gather information about you. Please see Section I(D) above for more detailed information regarding such use of Tracking Technologies.

D. Co-Branded Sites and Features

Some Useek videos offer co-branded services and features, such as events and promotions that we put together with another company ("Co-Branded Partner"). Such services may be hosted on a Site and/or our Co-Branded Partner's website. We may share your information with our Co-Branded Partner and your voluntary use of or participation in a co-branded service or feature means that you opt-in and affirmatively consent to both the USeek, Inc. Sites and our Co-Branded Partner collecting and using the information you provided during registration and/or in connection with the specific co-branded feature for fulfillment, marketing or administrative purposes. If you wish to opt-out of a Co-Branded Partner's future use of your information for marketing purposes, you will need to contact the Co-Branded Partner directly. The Co-Branded Partner will be identified on the co-branded feature or service.

E. Other Affiliated Businesses

USeek, Inc. and the USeek videos have strategic relationships with our customers. Where permitted by law, we may share information we collect about you within the websites of our customers and other affiliated businesses so that we can, for example, provide you with information about products and services that might interest you.

F. Business Transfer

In the event that assets relating to Useek, Inc. are transferred or sold to another entity as a result of, for example, a corporate sale, merger, consolidation, asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy, information collected at Useek, Inc. and in the USeek videos may be transferred to the acquiring company.

G. With Your Consent

We may otherwise disclose your information pursuant to your consent.

III. U.S. GOVERNING LAW.

USeek videos are designed for and targeted to U.S. audiences and are governed by and operated in accordance with the laws of the U.S. While users from countries other than the U.S. may access certain USeek videos, we make no representation that the Useek videos are operated in accordance with the laws or regulations of, or governed by, other nations.

If you are located outside of the U.S., you use USeek videos at your own risk and initiative and you, not us, are responsible for compliance with any applicable local and national laws. Please be aware that any personal information and other information you provide to us or we obtain as a result of your use of this Site shall be collected in the U.S. and/or transferred to the U.S. and subject to U.S. law.

By using USeek videos, participating in any activities and/or providing us with your personal information and other information, you (a) consent to the transfer and/or processing of any Information to and in the U.S., (b) acknowledge that U.S. law may provide a lower standard of protection for personal data than the laws of your location and (c) understand that we shall collect, transfer, store, process and/or deal with your Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and U.S. law. Consequently, to the full extent permitted by law, you hereby waive any claims relating to the processing of your personal information or other information in accordance with this Privacy Policy that may arise under the laws and regulations that apply to you in or of any other country or jurisdiction.

IV. SECURITY, STORAGE AND RETENTION OF INFORMATION.

Useek videos may maintain reasonable technical and organizational steps to help ensure that information collected is secure, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers and use of electronic security systems and password protections which guard against unauthorized access. We limit access to visitor's information to employees and contractors who are authorized for the proper handling of such information, and any employee found violating our standards of security and confidentiality will be subject to our disciplinary processes. We also take reasonable steps to help make sure our third-party agents protect the security of your personal information. However, as with most Internet sites or services, it is possible that third parties may unlawfully access such personal information through a number of means despite our efforts.

Information collected at USeek, Inc. or by the USeek videos will not be stored for longer than is necessary for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, or to otherwise meet legal requirements.

V. ACCESSING AND CORRECTING INFORMATION.

A. Reviewing Your Information

You have the right to access, update and correct factual inaccuracies in personally identifiable information that we collect online at USeek, Inc. or through USeek videos, subject to certain exceptions. To do so, you should log into your account or you may e-mail us at support@useek.com. To help protect your privacy and the security of your personally identifiable information, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access.

See the Terms of Use for how registered users of this Site who are California residents and are under 18 years of age may request removal of content or information in postings.

B. Parental Access

Parents/guardians of children under the age of 13 can print out and mail or fax us a signed letter that allows them to review any personally identifiable information collected about their child, have this information deleted, and/or request that there be no further collection or use of their child's personally identifiable information.

VI. LINKS TO THIRD PARTIES.

The websites that comprise the USeek videos may contain links to other sites, including those of sponsors, advertisers, social networking platforms, and survey companies. These other websites are governed by their own privacy policies or information collection practices, which may be substantially different from ours. We encourage visitors to other websites to review the privacy policies and information collection practices of those websites.

VII. YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS.

California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits our visitors who are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
