Does VidTaggr share the information it receives?

Information about our users is an important part of our business, however we do NOT share any personally identifiable information.

  • Agents: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include sending e-mail, removing repetitive information from user lists, analyzing data, and providing marketing assistance. They may have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but they may not use it for other purposes.
  • Promotional offers: Sometimes we share offers with selected groups of VidTaggr users on behalf of other businesses via your VidTaggr profile page. No personally identifiable information is used.
  • Business transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy additional services for VidTaggr. In such transactions, user information generally is transferred along with the rest of the service or business unit. Also, in the event that VidTaggr LLC, or a substantial part of its assets are acquired, user information will of course be included in the transaction.
  • Protection of VidTaggr and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law; enforce or apply our Terms and Conditions of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of VidTaggr, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Policy.

What about third-party advertisers?

Our site includes third-party advertising and links to other websites. We do not provide any personally identifiable information to these advertisers or third-party websites.

These third-party websites and advertisers, or Internet advertising companies working on their behalf, sometimes use technology to send (or “serve”) the advertisements that appear on our website directly to your browser. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use cookies, JavaScript, web beacons (also known as action tags or single-pixel gifs), and other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. We do not have access to or control over cookies or other features that they may use, and the information practices of these advertisers and third-party websites are not covered by this Privacy Notice. Please contact them directly for more information about their privacy practices.

VidTaggr also displays personalized third-party advertising based on information you submit to us about movies you own or have taggd. Although VidTaggr does not provide any personal information to advertisers, advertisers (including ad-serving companies) may assume that users who interact with or click on a personalized advertisement meet their criteria to personalize the ad (for example, users in the northwestern United States who bought, watched, taggd or browsed for comedies).

What choices and access do I have?

  • As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to take advantage of many VidTaggr features.
  • If you do not want to receive updates from us, you may “Unlike” VidTaggr from the “Likes and Interests” section of your Facebook profile.
  • The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on’s settings or visiting the Web site of its manufacturer. However, because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of VidTaggr’s essential features, we recommend that you leave them turned on.
