Our Commitment to Privacy
Your privacy is important to us.
To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices
you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find,
we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.
Note - any video, image, or other content posted at the direction of users onto our websites ("Sites")
Note - information you post publicly post to the Sites is available for indexing by search engines such as Google.
We can take no responsibility for the information you choose to post onto these un-secure pages.
Search results on your username could lump together hits from our Sites and hits from your employment,
university, etc. Therefore we suggest that you use a different username on our Sites than what you use on other websites.

becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by others.
Your account name (not your email address) is displayed to other users when you upload videos or send messages

Any videos that you submit to the Sites may be redistributed through the Internet and other media channels,
and may be viewed by the general public.

(such as notifying you of major 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, click data, etc.)
to improve the quality and design of the Sites and to create new features, promotions, functionality,
and services by storing, tracking, and analyzing user preferences and trends.

we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic,

When We May Disclose Information
We provide personally identifiable information and non-personally-identifiable information to our subsidiaries,
