MediaStinger takes your privacy rights seriously and has posted this Privacy Policy to let MediaStinger users know what information MediaStinger collects from you, why MediaStinger collects it and what MediaStinger does with it. MediaStinger’s goal is to collect and use only that information that MediaStinger thinks is necessary for MediaStinger’s legitimate business interests, such as to better understand and serve you, the MediaStinger community, to provide better service and to improve marketing of MediaStinger.

Acceptance of These Terms

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and is subject to the MediaStinger Terms of Service of the Site. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy or the Terms of Service of the Site, please do not provide MediaStinger with any information and do not use the MediaStinger Site, App, or other services. Your continued use of the MediaStinger Site after the Privacy Policy has been modified will signify your acceptance of the changes for information gathered after the date of the change.

Does this Privacy Policy apply to you?

This privacy policy covers MediaStinger’s information collection and use practices for anyone who uses the Site and App. Except as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy, MediaStinger will not share your personally identifiable information with any third parties unless you give MediaStinger permission to do so or except as required by law or to cooperate with law enforcement authorities.

This Site, however, contains links to other websites, advertisers and other third parties. By clicking on any of these links, you are leaving the Site. MediaStinger has no control over the information collected from or about you by any third-party after you have left the Site. This Privacy Policy does not cover the data collection and use practices of any third-party linked to MediaStinger. MediaStinger assumes no liability and is not responsible for any practices of such third-party web sites, including their privacy practices or content.

What information, including personally identifiable information, does MediaStinger collect from and about you?

Our goal in collecting information from and about you is to provide you with the best web experience possible. In order to provide you with our services, MediaStinger collects two types of information from its community: passive technical information; and information you voluntarily provide to MediaStinger, including personally identifiable information. For the purpose of this Privacy Policy, MediaStinger is the Data Controller of your Personal Data who will determine the purposes for which and the manner in which any personal information are, or are to be, processed.

Passive Technical Information. MediaStinger automatically collects certain technical information for each visitor, including your IP address, the type of browser you use to surf the Internet, your screen resolution, and your computer’s operating system. Your IP address tells MediaStinger both your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and the general geographic location from which you are connecting. MediaStinger may also use your IP address to track the date and time you accessed the Site, how long you stayed on the Site and what pages you visited.

This information is obtained using third-party Service Providers. Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Service. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network.

You can opt-out of having made your activity on the Service available to Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. The add-on prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, and dc.js) from sharing information with Google Analytics about visits activity. For more information on the privacy practices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy & Terms web page: http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/

This information is also provided in the aggregate to third parties, including potential business partners and advertisers, to describe basic use patterns for the Site, but this information is not linked to any personally identifiable information before it is disclosed unless MediaStinger has obtained your consent. In addition, MediaStinger uses cookies on this Site. Cookies are small data text files that are sent from a server computer to your computer during a browsing session so that the web site may track your activities on the web site. Cookies are typically stored on your computer’s hard drive and are used by web sites to simulate a continuous connection to that site. Cookies, by themselves, do not necessarily let a web site know any personally identifying information about you, such as your real name, address, etc., unless you previously provided that information at the web site or have set your preferences in your browser to provide that information. MediaStinger is not generally interested in any one individual and does not collect personally identifiable information about any one person using cookies.

What other organizations besides MediaStinger may be collecting information from you on the Site?

MediaStinger may use outside advertising companies to display banner advertisements on the Site. Banner advertisements may also contain cookies, and appear to be coming from MediaStinger; but, in reality, they are coming from third parties who are serving advertisements on the Site. MediaStinger has no control over the privacy practices of any third-party, and the manner in which any third-party uses your information is not protected by the terms of this Privacy Policy. Further, once you leave the Site, MediaStinger does not control the privacy policies or the privacy practices of any third parties.

What happens to my information after MediaStinger collects it?

When MediaStinger collects information from you, MediaStinger does not share any information with third parties outside of MediaStinger without your consent. You will give this consent by “opting-in” to having your information shared with third parties when you register. These third parties may include MediaStinger’s marketing partners, who may want specific information to better shape their marketing efforts. Additionally, MediaStinger provides the community the opportunity to be sent newsletters and information about promotional events, publications, and marketing events. Again, MediaStinger will not send this information to you unless you “opt in” for these services and publications.

In addition, MediaStinger will not sell, dispose, or otherwise transfer your personally identifiable information to third parties without your consent except as specifically set forth in this paragraph and in the preceding paragraph. When you choose to supply MediaStinger with your personally identifying information, MediaStinger compiles this information in a database with other MediaStinger community members’ information and MediaStinger reserves the right to transfer this information to a successor, related entity or to a third-party purchasing or succeeding to MediaStinger’s assets.

How long is this information retained?

MediaStinger will retain your Personal Data only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. We will retain and use your Personal Data to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations (for example, if we are required to retain your data to comply with applicable laws), resolve disputes, and enforce our legal agreements and policies.

MediaStinger will also retain Usage Data for internal analysis purposes. Usage Data is generally retained for a shorter period of time, except when this data is used to strengthen the security or to improve the functionality of our Service, or we are legally obligated to retain this data for longer time periods.

How can you review and correct information you submitted to the Site, unsubscribe, or opt out?

To unsubscribe from our mailing lists and remove your information from our databases, you can send an email to contact@mediastinger.com. In this email, you must include your user name and password, and a description of the information you would like to change.

Additionally, if you choose to receive MediaStinger newsletters, you may unsubscribe from this service in the manner indicated in each newsletter.

What kinds of security procedures are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under MediaStinger’s control?

MediaStinger uses industry standard security measures to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under MediaStinger’s control, including firewalls and other security measures. Nonetheless, due to the inherent dangers of the Internet, MediaStinger cannot guarantee the protection of such information against loss, misuse, or alteration.
