Scope

This Privacy Policy covers TVision’s treatment of information that alone or in combination may be used to identify you ("Personal Information"). The System collects information from you and individuals you identify as part of your household when you access or use our System, as well as any individuals incidentally in the vicinity of the System during your participation in the Program, such as guests to your home.

Children’s Information

Because our services record and track viewing of content for users of all ages, we may collect photos of children under thirteen (13) through the System.  Accordingly, pursuant to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), if you have children who are under 13 residing in your household we will obtain prior verifiable consent from the parent or legal guardian of each child before such collection, unless the collection of information falls within an exception that is permitted by applicable law.  The photos will be collected to as necessary for the child to participate in the Program, and it will only be retained as is reasonably necessary to allow your child to participate in the Program, or as required by law.  In addition, these photos will only be used for internal business purposes.

Parents or legal guardians may contact us as set forth below to ask if we have collected their child's Personal Information, to review the information or request that it be deleted, or to withdraw their consent for us to collect such information.  We reserve the right to verify that the requester is in fact the child's parent or legal guardian.  In any correspondence such as e-mail or mail, please include the child’s name and the parent’s email address and telephone number.

We use this data to generate information about your engagement with media and share it as described below.

We may also collect information from third-party partners to augment what we know from the System and what you provide to us.

In certain cases, we may share Personal Information with third parties as described below.

Disclosure of Your Information

We may share your Personal Information and other information that we collect through the System with third parties as follows:

  • De-identified Information: We may provide Personal Information and other information, in a de-identified manner, to our partners for use for business and marketing purposes. We may also provide aggregate usage data to our partners, who may use this data to understand how often and in what ways people use our System, so that they, too, can provide you with an optimal viewing experience.
  • Vendors and Service Providers: We may employ third party vendors and service providers to perform tasks on our behalf, or to enable the System technology. We may share your information with these parties to enable them to perform these functions. For example, we may use a data hosting service to store and process information that we collect through the System.

  • With Your Consent: We may also share any information from or about you, including Personal Information and television and video viewing information, with any party when we have your consent.

Security

We store, transmit, and protect Personal Information using a reasonable standard of care within the industry and in a manner that is the same or more protective than the manner in which we store, transmit, and protect other confidential information.  However, the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be fully secure and we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us in connection with your participation in the Program.
