Privacy Policy

This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their 'Personally identifiable information' (PII) is being used online. PII, as used in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.

Information we collect and how we use it

Personal Information. If you create an account to take advantage of the full range of services offered on the Site, we ask for and store account information that can be used to identify or contact you (“Personal Information”), such as your email address. You can also import your account information from a third party. We may use this Personal Information to expedite your registration process, and enhance and customize your experience on the Site. Your Personal Information will not be visible to other users. You can update or change your Personal Information at any time via your account settings.

Public Content. You can contribute to and interact with the Site in a number of different ways, including but not limited to filling out your account information, creating channels and filling out your channel profiles, uploading videos, creating playlists, liking and disliking content, commenting on content, and subscribing to channels. We may store these contributions and interactions (your “Public Content”), display them to other Site visitors and users, and use them for promotional purposes. Note that any information you provide in your channel profiles, including your channel names and avatars, is visible to the public. Please do not include information in your Public Content that you expect to keep private. We are not responsible for the information you choose to include in your Public Content.

Cookies. We send cookies to your computer in order to uniquely identify your browser and improve the quality of our service. “Cookies” refer to small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing the Site. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them). Persistent cookies can be removed by following the instructions in your browser’s help menu. If you choose to disable cookies, some areas of the Site may not work properly or at all.

Third party services. We allow you to access third party services, such as Facebook and Twitter, to share your selected Public Content with those services, and import information about who you are connected with on those services so that you can connect with people you know on the Site. You can manage your third party services preferences at any time via your Weelco settings. Some third party services may also provide us with information from your accounts on these services that allows us to enhance and customize your experience on the Site. You can also further modify your privacy settings with third party services directly.

Feedback. If you contact us to provide feedback, register a complaint, or ask a question, we may store your communications, including any Personal Information you include in them, so that we can effectively respond to you. Our contact information is provided at the end of this Statement.

Data storage. We store data in the United States.

Inviting friends. You may choose to invite your friends to join Weelco by providing their contact information or by importing your connections from other websites. We may store and use your friends’ contact information for the sole purpose of allowing you to invite them to join and connect with you on the Site.

Activity and log data. We automatically store information related to your use of the Site (“Activity”), such as the pages you view on the Site, your browser type and language, Internet Protocol address, requested URL, referring URL, and the date and time of your visit. We use this type of information to administer the Site and provide the highest possible level of service to you. We also use this information in the aggregate to perform statistical analyses of user behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the Site.

Location data. When you use the Site, we may use your approximate physical location (based on the Internet Protocol address of your computer or your current location from your mobile device, should you choose to provide it) to provide you with location-based information and advertising.

Transfer of Information

Public Content. We may distribute your Public Content to third parties with your permission or pursuant to our Terms of Service. For example, if you post content on the Site, we may distribute such Public Content to a wider audience by sharing it (or portions of it) with third parties so that they can publish it on their own websites and media platforms. When we distribute your Public Content to third parties, we may ask them to credit you as the source of these contributions by including your display name and profile image.

Third party service providers. We provide some of our services through contractual agreements with affiliates, partners, service providers, and other third parties. We may share information about you with our service providers so that they can perform the services they are required to perform. Our service providers are not permitted to use your Personal Information other than to provide those requested services. We will encourage our service providers to adopt and post privacy policies. However, the use of your Personal Information by our service providers is governed by the privacy policies of these service providers, and is not subject to our control.

Third party advertising. We may use third party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit Weelco. These companies may use information from your Public Content (not including your Personal Information) and Activity related to your use of the Site to provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you. We do not send any individualized Personal Information to third party advertisers, but these advertisers may have access to information that they obtain through Cookies or that you share with these advertisers yourself. Note that we do not rent, share, sell, or trade your personally identifiable information with third parties for direct marketing purposes.

Aggregate information. We may share non-personal information in the aggregate to third parties relating to user behavior in connection with actual or prospective business relationship with those third parties, such as advertisers and content distributors. For example, we may disclose the number of users that have been exposed to or clicked on advertising banners.

Business transfers. We may share your information with our parent company, subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under a common control that we may have now or in the future, in which case we will require them to honor this Statement. If another company acquires our company or all or substantially all of our assets, that company will possess your information, and will assume the rights and obligations with respect to that information as described in this Statement.

Investigations. We reserve the right to investigate abuses on the Site, and to enforce and apply our Terms of Service and this Statement. We may disclose information about you to third parties if we have a good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to (i) take action regarding suspected illegal activities; (ii) enforce or apply our Terms of Service and this Statement; (iii) comply with legal process or other government inquiry, such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, judicial proceeding, or other legal process served on us; or (iv) protect our rights, reputation, and property, or that of our users, affiliates, or the public.

Security

Your account is password protected. Your password will never be visible to employees or affiliates of Weelco.

We follow generally accepted industry standards to safeguard against the loss, misuse, and alteration of your Personal Information, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is fully secure, however.

The Site may contain links to third party websites with which we have no affiliation. Except as set forth herein, we do not share your Personal Information with those third parties, and are not responsible for their privacy practices. We suggest you read the privacy policies of all such third party websites.

Google

Google's advertising requirements can be summed up by Google's Advertising Principles. They are put in place to provide a positive experience for users. https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/1316548?hl=en

We use Google AdSense Advertising on our website.

Google, as a third party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on our site. Google's use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to our users based on their visit to our site and other sites on the Internet. Users may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

We have implemented the following:

We along with third-party vendors, such as Google use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) or other third-party identifiers together to compile data regarding user interactions with ad impressions, and other ad service functions as they relate to our website.

Opting out:

Users can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Settings page. Alternatively, you can opt out by visiting the Network Advertising initiative opt out page or permanently using the Google Analytics Opt Out Browser add on.

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. - See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

Users can visit our site anonymously.

Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page, or as a minimum on the first significant page after entering our website. Our Privacy Policy link includes the word 'Privacy', and can be easily be found on the page specified above.

Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes:

Users are able to change their personal information:

How does our site handle do not track signals?

We honor do not track signals and do not track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place.

Does our site allow third party behavioral tracking?

It's also important to note that we allow third party behavioral tracking.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation's consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.

We do not specifically market to children under 13.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

Changes

Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will not reduce your rights under this Privacy Policy without your explicit consent. We will post any privacy policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice (including, for certain services, email notification of privacy policy changes). We will also keep prior versions of this Privacy Policy in an archive for your review.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

We will notify the users via email

We will notify the users via in site notification

We also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

CAN SPAM Act

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.
