2.Information Collected

Videoo and its business partners and third-party service collect Information about you from a variety of sources, including Personal Information you provide directly to us when you become a Registered User of our Online Services, and Information we collect about you when you access or use our Online Services and otherwise interact with us.

We may combine any of the Information collected about you for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.
Information You Provide Us. If you register for an Account or correspond with us, you will be asked directly to provide certain Personal Information such as name, address, e-mail, and date of birth, and other Personal Information directly or indirectly including through any SNS account of yours, such as including, without limitation, a phone number, employment, education and familial connections. If you provide Personal Information to us, directly or indirectly, you are telling us that such Personal Information is both true and accurate, and that you are authorized to provide it to us. We also retain any messages you send through our Online Services.

Information Collected Automatically. Our Online Services, email messages, and advertisements use various tracking technologies that may include cookies, local storage, web beacons/clear GIFs, embedded scripts, and ETags (collectively, “Tracking Technologies”) to collect Information from you automatically. Videoo, along with our business partners, third-party service providers, and advertisers use Tracking Technologies for a variety of purposes, including enhancing your online experience. We treat Information automatically collected as Non-Personal Information. Please see below for more information regarding Tracking Technologies that may be used by Videoo:

Cookies: A cookie is a small text file placed on your hard drive by a web server. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer after you close your browser). We use cookies to better understand how you interact with our Online Services and to monitor aggregate usage by Users and web traffic routing on our Online Services. Also, we may create a unique device or User ID for you and store it in a cookie so we can recognize you and customize your experience based on your preferences.

Local Storage: Local storage such as Flash Cookies and HTML5 are similar to cookies but stores Information about your visit to a web page in a small database on your mobile device or computer. Because these technologies are similar to browser cookies, they are sometimes called "browser cookies," even though they are stored in different parts of your computer. We may use local storage for purposes similar to cookies, including facilitating the navigation and displaying of information more effectively, to personalize your experience our Online Services, and for analytical purposes.

Web Beacons: We may also use web beacons (also known as pixel tags or clear GIFs), which can be embedded in web pages, videos, or emails, to collect certain types of information from your browser, check whether you have viewed a particular web page or e-mail message, and determine, among other things, the time and date on which you viewed any online content, the IP address of your computer, and the URL of the web page from which any such content was viewed. Such Information facilitates more accurate reporting and improvement of our Online Services.

Embedded Script: Embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect Information about your interactions with our Online Services, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device from our web server or a third-party service provider, is active only while you are connected to our Online Services, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
ETag: A feature of the cache in browsers, an ETag is an opaque identifier assigned by a web server to a specific version of a resource found at a URL. If the resource content at that URL ever changes, a new and different ETag is assigned. Used in this manner ETags are forms of device identifiers. ETag tracking may generate unique tracking values even where the consumer blocks HTTP, Flash, and/or HTML5 cookies.

Log File Information: When you use our Online Services, we automatically collect and store certain Information in log files. This Information may include your IP address, device and software characteristics (such as type and operating system), browser type, Internet service provider, URLs, referring/exit pages, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

Location Data: When you use our Online Services on a mobile device, we may access, collect, monitor, and/or remotely store Information regarding your mobile device as well as real-time “location data,” which may include GPS coordinates (e.g., latitude and/or longitude). Location data may convey to us Information about how you browse and use our Online Services.

Device Information: We may collect Information about the computer or device you use to access our Online Services, including the hardware model, operating system and version, MAC address, unique device identifier, phone number, and mobile network information. In addition, our Online Services may access your device's image storage applications, with your consent, to facilitate your use of certain features of the Online Services.

Analytics Information: We may directly collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools such as Google Analytics, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Online Services. These tools collect Information sent by your browser or mobile device, including the pages you visit and the features of the Online Services you use.

Information We May Receive From Third Parties. We may receive information about you from third parties. For example, you have the option of registering with us through an SNS, using your existing SNS account and log-in credentials on such website. When you click on “Connect with us,” or a similar connection to our Online Services, you will be prompted to enter your SNS credentials for the SNS. By proceeding, you are granting us access to your Information. Any Information that we collect from your Facebook or other SNS account of yours may depend on the privacy settings you have with that SNS, so please consult the SNS’s privacy and data practices.

Advertisements. When you view an advertisement within our Online Services, whether or not you click on it, the advertiser, ad serving technology companies, and service providers that perform advertising-related services for Videoo and its business partners may collect Information from or about you. Such Information may include your IP address, device ID, browser information, location information, and internet and on-line usage, as well as Information logged from your hardware or device.
