Collection of your Personal Information
The WatchMeGoPro™ web site collects personally identifiable contact information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. The WatchMeGoPro™ web site also collects demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites. If you are a registered user of the WatchMeGoPro™ web site, you may access, change, or delete your personal information or remove your profile at any time.
We also collect information about your computer hardware and software and your activity while on the web site. This information may include your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring web site addresses. This information is used by the Operator for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the WatchMeGoPro™ web site.
Please keep in mind that if you disclose personally identifiable information or sensitive data about yourself through WatchMeGoPro™ public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: The Operator does not read your private online communications. However, the Operator reserves the right to do so, if in the Operator’s sole discretion, the Operator reasonably believes that it is necessary to do so in order to comply with applicable law or with a valid request by any law enforcement official.
The Operator encourages you to review the privacy statements of web sites you choose to visit from the WatchMeGoPro™ web site, so that you understand how those web sites collect, use and share your information. The Operator is not responsible for the privacy practices, policies or content on web sites other than WatchMeGoPro™ and the WatchMeGoPro™ family of web sites.
Use and Disclosure of your Personal Information
The Operator collects and uses your personal information to operate the WatchMeGoPro™ web site and deliver the services you have requested. The Operator may also conduct research through surveys about your opinion of current services or potential new services that may be offered by the Operator.
The Operator does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. The Operator may, from time to time, use your personally identifiable information to contact you on behalf of itself or its external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. You may opt in or opt out to receive marketing or promotional communications from the Operator or third parties at any time. If you consent to receive promotional communications, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party.
The Operator may share data with trusted partners to help carry out work on our behalf. For example, we may hire third parties to perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to you for the Operator, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your personal information.
The Operator keeps track of the web sites and pages our customers visit from within the WatchMeGoPro™ web site in order to determine which WatchMeGoPro™ services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within WatchMeGoPro™ to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
The Operator will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) comply with law or comply with legal process served on the Operator or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of the Operator; and, (c) act in circumstances which pose a risk of danger to protect the personal safety of users of the WatchMeGoPro™ web site, or the public.
Finally, information about our users may be disclosed as part of a merger or acquisition, creation of a separate business, or in the event of insolvency, in which personal information could be transferred as one of the business assets of the company.
The WatchMeGoPro™ web site may use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your computer’s disk drive by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize WatchMeGoPro™ web pages, or register with the WatchMeGoPro™ web site or services, a cookie helps the WatchMeGoPro™ web site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same WatchMeGoPro™ web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the WatchMeGoPro™ features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the WatchMeGoPro™ services or web sites you visit.
Security of your Personal Information
The Operator uses commercially reasonable means to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. The Operator secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. The information you submit to us is maintained in our database and may be archived on other media and stored in another location. The database and archived information is accessible only by our authorized employees and trusted third party partners. While we have taken steps to safeguard your personal information, we cannot guarantee that your information will not be disclosed by accident or by unauthorized or malicious acts of other parties.
Changes to this Statement
The Operator will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. The Operator encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how the Operator is protecting your information.
The Operator welcomes your questions comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. If you believe that the Operator has not adhered to this Statement, please contact the Operator at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and remedy the problem.
Privacy Statement - Kids
Last Update: 11/29/09
Web site operators which permit children under the age of 13 to use their services are subject to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). COPPA requires that we (i) inform parents or legal guardians about how we collect, use and disclose individually identifiable information of children under 13 to third parties; (ii) obtain parental consent to the child’s use of the Site; (iii) do not collect more information from the child than is reasonably necessary to participate in using the Site; and (iv) provide parents the ability to review their child’s information, withhold consent to disclosure of personal information to third parties, request deletion of the child’s information or refuse to allow further collection or use of the child’s information.
Collection of Kid’s Personal Information
The WatchMeGoPro™ web site collects personally identifiable contact information (or “personal information”) from users who register on the Site, such as e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. The WatchMeGoPro™ web site also collects demographic information, which is not unique to an individual, such as ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites. Personal information does not include aggregate information which is data that we may generate about a group of users from which individually identifiable information has been removed.
In the case of kids, by whom we mean children under the age of 13, we permit them to enter personal information into a profile on the Site, but only with the explicit permission of the child’s parent or legal guardian. The child’s personal information may be viewed only by other users to whom the child (or child’s parent) has granted access.
We request a date of birth from each person who tries to register as a user on the Site. From this, we determine whether the new user is a kid. If the new user is a kid, we request a parent’s email address so that we can obtain consent to the kid’s use of the site. Once we have obtained consent, we allow children to communicate with other trusted users who have been permitted by the parent, except in limited circumstances. For example, we may collect the kid’s email address, in order to respond to requests, allow signing up for contests, or answering a kid’s questions. We may also permit the kid to participate in marketing or promotional programs; however, any personal information we collect is used only for internal purposes and is not disclosed to third parties.
Use and Disclosure of Kid’s Personal Information
The Operator collects and uses personal information from all users, including kids, to operate the WatchMeGoPro™ web site and deliver the services you have requested. We do not disclose personal information about kids to any third party except (i) to other users who have been granted explicit permission to view a child’s profile by the child’s parent; (ii) to trusted partners to help carry out work on our behalf; (iii) to comply with law or comply with legal process served on the Operator or the Site; or (iv) as part of a merger or acquisition, creation of a separate business, or in the event of insolvency, in which personal information could be transferred as one of the business assets of the company.
Parents have the right to consent to our collection and use of their kids’ personal information without consenting to our disclosure of such information to third parties (except as noted in the preceding paragraph). Parents also have the right to refuse permission to us to collect personal information from their kids. Parents may request that we change or delete account information that we have collected from their kids by sending an email to email@example.com.
Changes to this Statement
The Operator reserves the right to modify or amend this Policy at any time. We will send an email to parents when any material changes to this Policy are made. It is the responsibility of parents to ensure that we have current email contact information.
The Operator is happy to respond to your questions or concerns. If you need assistance, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
