What is personal information?
Personal information is information that is about you as an identifiable individual. If you are a business customer it does not include your name and business contact information. Aggregated, statistical or de-identified information is not personal information. Information generated through your use of our websites or watching videos will not be personal information unless we can combine it with other information that would identify you.
Application of this Policy
What information do we collect and use, and for what purposes?
We use your personal data in a variety of ways. For example, in order to provide, improve, and personalize our Site to you, to deliver content, and to connect you with other services you use.
In addition, we may use information about groups of users, without focusing on any particular user’s information, for a wide variety of business reasons, such as to study usage and traffic patterns, to test different aspects of our technology and Site, to analyze and understand our business better, and to develop our Site.
For these purposes, we collect different personal information, including:
When you sign up with us we’ll collect certain limited information to identify and reach you, such as your name and email address, and password to authenticate your access to our Site.
