OUR CUSTOMERS ARE NOT OUR PRODUCT – OUR PRODUCT IS GREAT CONTENT.
TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT. The information we gather falls into two categories: (1) information voluntarily supplied by users to the Site through optional registration; and (2) tracking information gathered as users navigate through the Site.
Information You Provide To Us.
We may collect and store information, personal or otherwise, that you voluntarily supply either while using our Site or in responding via email in connection with a feature provided on our Site. Some examples of this type of information include demographic information and personal information (such as your name, address, or email address) that you electronically submit when you register for certain features on our Site, participate in sweepstakes or contests offered on the Site, sign up for email newsletters, or post on message boards or other public posting areas on our Site. We may also ask for information (including a credit card number) from users who make a purchase or conduct other transactions on our Site. The information supplied helps us to provide the product or service requested, offer you more personalized features and tailor the Site to your interests. Supplying such information is entirely voluntary. However, if you choose not to supply information requested, we may be unable to provide you with services made available to other users of the Site.
We also may collect and store information that is generated automatically as you navigate through our Site. For example, to help make the Site more responsive to the needs of users, we employ a standard feature of browser software, called a “cookie,” to assign each user a unique, random number that resides on a user’s computer. The cookie does not personally identify the user; it merely identifies the computer with which the user accesses the Site. However, if a user voluntarily identifies himself or herself (through registration, for example), the Site may be able to ascertain the identity of the user through a cookie assigned to an identified user’s computer. The only personal information a cookie can contain is information supplied by a user. By showing how and when visitors use the Site, cookies help us track user trends and patterns. They also prevent you from having to re-enter your preferences on certain areas of the Site where you have entered preference information previously.
We also may use web beacons and other methods to access cookies and to count users who visit our Site or open our HTML-formatted email messages. Our Site’s servers automatically collect limited information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, including your IP address. The IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send data - such as the web pages users view. An IP address does not personally identify a user. We use this information to deliver the Site’s content to you upon request and to measure traffic within the Site.
USE AND DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION. We use the information we collect in a variety of ways, including using the information to customize features and content that appear on the Site. We also may provide your non-personally identifiable information to certain third parties, such as content licensors to report usage of their content by our customers.
You agree that we may use your information to contact you for customer service purposes, to inform you of important changes or additions to our Site or the services offered over our Site, and to send you administrative notices, offers and any other communications that we believe may be of interest to you.
Please also keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily make your personal information available for viewing by third parties online - for example through email or by you choosing to share your information or links to videos (or other content) with users of social networks (e.g., Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest) - that information can be seen, collected and used by others besides OWNZONES Media Network, Inc. We cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of such information.
Please be aware that we may occasionally release information about users when release is appropriate to comply with law, to enforce our Terms of Service or to protect the rights, property or safety of other users of our Site, the public or us.
Please also note that, in the unlikely event that OWNZONES Media Network, Inc., some or all of our assets, or our Site is acquired by another company, information about our users may be among the transferred assets.
MODIFYING YOUR INFORMATION AND OPTING OUT. If you register with us, you will have the opportunity to review, update, change or delete the information you have provided to us (and that we continue to store) at any time. If you remove your registration information completely, you may not be able to continue using certain services that require registration. To review, update, change or delete your registration information visit www.ownzones.com.
TRANSFER AND STORAGE OF INFORMATION. We use reasonable physical, technical, and administrative measures to safeguard your information against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure, or modification. We also take steps to ensure that only those employees, agents, and contractors who have a legitimate business reason to obtain access to your information are granted access. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card information), we encrypt that information using secure sockets layer technology (SSL), an industry standard protocol for billing transmission in order to help protect the financial information you send us. However, as effective as the reasonable security measures we implement may be, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our systems, nor can we guarantee that information supplied will not be intercepted while being transmitted over the Internet.
CHILDREN. We do not allow registration or subscription by, and will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from, anyone under 13 years of age.
