We value privacy, and you should too. We highly recommend you familiarize your self with internet safety and privacy issues. We suggest you read up and understand internet privacy concerns at these web sites:
Once you have a clear understanding of what’s really going on with the web, then you can really start to see that privacy is a big issue. There are also plenty of news stories to check out where you can see that many places that have posted these little privacy badges in fact are not secure and often violate their own agreements. You will also find that even large institutions that do a lot to protect privacy are sometimes breached by hackers and even governments.
Privacy should begin at home, on your own computer with serious virus protection and spyware protect like malware bytes and kapersky internet security. You should also use encryption and strong passwords one your own system. You can learn about that stuff from a Cnet.com
Privacy with this web site:
Well if you learned enough from the above links, then you are not worried about privacy here. Essentially, our web site collects the same info that most sites collect with statistics programs and such. We got records of your ip address and other identifying information when yo visit this site. Just about all web sites do.
We do not sell or rent out any of this info, but if we were served with a court order to provide to someone, then we would have to abide by that. If we decided to sell our web site, then some of the information in our statistics and user accounts would probably go along with it. We have no intention to ever sell out, but hey you never know, even yahoo might be bought if offered the right price.
If you decide to sign up for an account, provide ratings, or enter in any other info, then we may collect more info about you. Pretty much all the info you enter, even clicking a rating will store some information into our database, and may add some cookies onto your system so we can track things that make the end user experience better - things like keeping someone from rating the same video multiple times, and keeping spammers at bay.
Realize that any time you enter info into an online form, or interact with a web site / program that collects information like clicks, or email addresses and such - that information is stored in a database, and usually on some web server in some other state, and that that server (along with pretty much everybody else’s servers) are maintained by people who have access to it, and people that webmasters often do not even know.
We try to keep things secure here by doing any software updates that are made available by our software vendor. We host our sites with a reputable company. We try to keep things on the down low as much as possible. We may offer web advertising one day that could store tracking cookies and stuff like that. If we do, we can’t be responsible for what they do. Big companies like google and doubleclick use this cookies, and I think amazon does too. Some people believe that marketing agencies and places like facebook and insurance companies do evil things with these cookies.
I myself am not a big fan of what facebook has been doing with all of it’s information, so I do not use it, and I am careful what I enter into any web site forms. You can also setup settings in your web browser that will crush cookies and delete cookies and stuff like that. Personally I like the way amazon.com handles cookies and viewing history - I think it’s helpful (although sometimes creepy) and I know that having cookies allows for affiliates to get paid for sending customers - so it’s a good thing to allow cookies and let people get paid so we can all continue to provide cool services for free or at low costs.
With that said, not all companies play well with collected information, and some are out there profiling people and user groups in ways that are down right freaky. We don’t get involved in selling your information to insurance companies and crap like that.
Our terms of service states that confidentiality is not guaranteed - and we suggest you find other ways to surf anonymously if it’s an issue for you.
We are not in the business of putting people’s real names or email addys out for the world to see, but you can keep a lid on all that by not using your real name, or not rating videos, or simply not using many of the services on the web. You could also sing up for a throw away email and use that when you sign up at porn sites - just make sure that you are using a proxy connection when you sign up for it, or when you check it.
If you have any questions about privacy here, contact us so that we can provide answers if possible.
Have a nice day - and happy surfing.
