TravellersTV Privacy Notice


Updated as of September 21, 2007

The Travellerstv.com  describes how TravellersTV and its subsidiaries treat personal information when you use TravellersTV services, including information provided when you use TravellersTV. In addition, the following describes privacy practices specific to TravellersTV. To understand how we treat the information you give us as you use TravellersTV, you should read this policy and the TravellersTV Privacy Policy.

Personal Information


Non-Account Activity. You can watch videos on TravellersTV without having a TravellersTV Account or a TravellersTV Account.

Account-Related Activity. Certain other activities on TravellersTV—like uploading videos, posting comments, or watching restricted videos—require you to have a TravellersTV Account or a TravellersTV Account. We ask for some personal information when you create a TravellersTV Account or a TravellersTV Account, including your email address and a password, which is used to protect your account from unauthorized access. A TravellersTV Account allows you to access many of our services that require registration.

Usage Information. We may record information about your usage, such as when you use TravellersTV, the channels, groups, and favorites you subscribe to, the contacts you communicate with, and the frequency and size of data transfers, as well as information you display or click on in TravellersTV (including UI elements, settings, and other information). If you are logged in, we may associate that information with your account. We may use clear GIFs (a.k.a. "Web Beacons") in HTML-based emails sent to our users to track which emails are opened by recipients.

Content Uploaded to Site. Any personal information or video content that you voluntarily disclose online (on discussion boards, in messages and chat areas, within your playback or profile pages, etc.) becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by others.

Uses


If you submit personally identifiable information to us through the TravellersTV Sites, we use your personal information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the TravellersTV Sites, as well as provide special personalized features to you.

Your account name (not your email address) is displayed to other Users when you upload videos or send messages through the TravellersTV Sites and other Users can contact you through messages and comments. Any videos that you submit to the TravellersTV Sites may be redistributed through the internet and other media channels, and may be viewed by the general public.

We do not use your email address or other personally identifiable information to send commercial or marketing messages without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. We may, however, use your email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major TravellersTV Site changes or for customer service purposes).

We use both your personally identifiable information and certain non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous User usage data, cookies, IP addresses, browser type, clickstream data, etc.) to improve the quality and design of the TravellersTV Sites and to create new features, promotions, functionality, and services by storing, tracking, and analyzing User preferences and trends.

We use cookies, clear gifs, and log file information to: (a) store information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the TravellersTV Sites; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information; (c) monitor the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns; (d) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, pages viewed, etc.; and (e) track your entries, submissions, and status in promotions, sweepstakes, and contests.

Your Choices

You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through the TravellersTV Sites, in which case you can still view videos and explore the TravellersTV Sites, but TravellersTV may not be able to provide certain services to you. Some advanced TravellersTV features may, for authentication purposes, require you to sign up for other TravellersTV services like TravellersTV Business accounts or TravellersTV Film Makers Accounts. The privacy notices of those services govern the use of your personal information associated with them.
