Video Stratus's Commitment to Privacy
What is Personal Information?
"Personal Information" is information that can be directly associated with a specific person or entity such as a customer's name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number, or information about activities directly linked to that person, such as his or her purchases. Personal Information also includes information that you may choose to provide to us, such as your educational, medical and employment history profile.
Personal information does not include "aggregate" information. Aggregate information is data we collect about a group or category of products, services or customers, from which individual customer identities have been removed. In other words, information about how you use a service may be collected and combined with information about how others use the same service, but no Personal Information will be included in the resulting data. Likewise, information about the products or services you use or purchase may be collected and combined with information about the products and services used or purchased by others, but no Personal Information will be included in the resulting data. Aggregate data helps understand trends and customer needs so that new products and services can be considered and so existing products and services can be tailored to customer desires.
Collection of Personal Information
We collect Personal Information that you provide us, such as when you:
- register to use the Site or Services;
- post or submit any content on the Site or Services, including any video or audio content; or
- contact us for any reason.
We may automatically collect some information when you use the Site or Services, such as your computer's IP address, operating system, the site from which you linked to us, and the time and date of your visit, and activities. We also collect information received from third parties to the extent that they have entered into an agreement with you as a result of your relationship with Video Stratus.
Use of Personal Information
The Personal Information we collect is used to process your requests or transactions, to provide you high quality service, to customize your use of the Site or Services according to your preferences, and to tell you about specific goods or services we believe will be of interest to you. If you prefer not to receive promotional information from us, we make it easy for you to let us know. You can contact us at any time to decline promotional information (see under the heading "Choice" below).
Sharing of Personal Information
Video Stratus does not sell, rent, share, or disclose Personal Information to third parties without your prior consent, except in the limited circumstances described in this statement.
Summaries and edits of video produced by the Site and the Services will be made available to you via an internet link made available to you, including without limitation by email. You should not reveal this link or send this email to third parties. If you reveal this link or send this email to third parties, such third parties will have full access to such summarized and edited videos as well as any confidential or personal information on such video. As such, you should have no expectation of confidentiality in videos or other material if you have revealed the applicable link to third parties.
If you use any of the features of the Site or Services, please remember that any information disclosed in these venues may be automatically made public, even without your knowledge or authorization. You should exercise caution when disclosing any information, including Personal Information, in such venues, as you do not know who will access or use such information and for what purposes. Video Stratus is in no way responsible for the accuracy, use or misuse of any information, including Personal Information, which you disclose in such venues.
In addition, we may disclose Personal Information in the good faith belief that we are required to do so by law, or that doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process, respond to any claims, or to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Video Stratus, our customers, or the public. Information about our customers, including Personal Information, may be disclosed as part of, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets or acquisition.
Protection of Personal Information
Video Stratus has put into place security measures in an effort to protect personal information from loss, misuse or alteration while it is under our control. Personal information we collect is stored electronically and may be combined with other membership information. We use technical, contractual, administrative and physical measures in an effort to protect against unauthorized access.
Account information is accessible online only through the use of a password. To protect the confidentiality of personal information, you must keep your password confidential and not disclose it to any other person. If other people have access to your email, they may be able to obtain access to your password and obtain personal information about you (such as your credit card information), or change information about your user profile. You may not want to use an email account operated by an employer because many employers have the legal right to access such email accounts.
By registering you agree to receive promotional messages from Video Stratus. If at any time you wish to stop receiving promotional information from Video Stratus, you may opt out by:
- E-Mailing us at email@example.com
- Accessing your registration information and checking the box that allows you to opt out of receiving promotional emails.
Video Stratus appreciates the importance of safeguarding the privacy of your personal information that may be provided to us. However, Video Stratus does use and disclose de-identified aggregate information for the purposes of evaluating and improving our services and tailoring our products. Video Stratus may choose at its sole discretion to transfer, sell, provide or share such information with third parties, including for to Video Stratus's business partners for commercial purposes, and by providing any information to Video Stratus you consent to such provision of de-identified aggregate information to any third party.
