Personal Information

Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, company name, email address, telephone number, postal or other physical address, birth date, gender, occupation, a credit card number (including expiration date) to process payment for products and/or services and such other information when needed to provide a service that you requested. We only collect personal information that you choose to provide. Where possible, we will enable you to select how we will use the information (for example, by choosing to opt-in or opt-out of receiving promotional offers).

As you navigate through this site, certain non-personal, anonymous information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies, such as cookies, Internet tags or web beacons, and navigational data collection (log files, server logs, clickstream). Your internet browser automatically transmits to this site some of this anonymous information, such as the URL of the web site you just came from and the Internet Protocol (IP) address and the browser version your computer is currently using; the date and time you access the site and the pages that you access while at the site. This information is used to help improve the site, analyze trends and administer the site. This site may also collect anonymous information from your computer through cookies and internet tags or web beacons. You may set your browser to notify you when a cookie is sent or to refuse cookies altogether, but certain features of this site might not work without cookies.

Mediafour may collect personal information that you provide when you elect to use our software, Sites and Services. Mediafour only uses such information if it has been collected in accordance with acceptable privacy practices consistent with this Policy and applicable laws.

Choice/Opt-in, Opt-out

You may elect to “opt-out” of receiving certain communications. This means we assume you have given us your consent to collect and use your information in accordance with this Policy unless you take affirmative action to opt out at the point of collection. Opt-out is the means by which you give us, or decline to give us, your consent to use your personal information for the purposes covered by the opt-out choice. You may opt out at the point of collection when personal information is collected, when you receive a communication from us, or you may do so at any time by sending an email request to optout@mediafour.com (please indicate “Opt Out” in the subject line) or by sending a written request to the contact address provided below. In some cases, we will provide you with the opportunity to “opt in”. This means we will require your affirmative action to indicate your consent before we use your information for purposes other than the purpose for which it was submitted.

Cookies and Tracking Technologies

A cookie is a small text file that certain Web sites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to track the pages you’ve visited, but the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can’t read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Cookies save you time; for example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie recalls your specific information on subsequent visits. You may accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies; however you can modify your browser setting to decline cookies. In addition to cookies, our site occasionally uses other technical methods to analyze the traffic patterns on our web site, such as the frequency with which our users visit various parts of our web site. No personal information is collected using these other methods.

Mediafour may use the information collected from you in the following ways: to fulfill your requests for certain products and services, to keep you up to date on the latest product announcements, software updates, special offers or other information we think you’d like to hear about either from us or from our business partners, and to better understand your needs and provide you with better services. We may also use your information to send you promotional materials about goods and services (including special offers and promotions) either offered by Mediafour or offered by third parties. You may opt out of receiving these communications.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Mediafour may compile and report to third parties (such as advertisers) aggregate statistics about our users in terms of numbers, traffic patterns and related site information.
