Cookies and General Information
ManiaTV collects personally identifiable information — meaning information that can be used to identify and contact you — when you use the ManiaTV Services. ManiaTV may combine information about you that we collect with information we obtain from business partners or other companies.
In addition, ManiaTV collects information about your transactions with us and with some of our business partners. For example, ManiaTV automatically receives and records information from your computer and browser, including your IP address, software and hardware attributes, the page you request, and cookie information.
ManiaTV collects personally identifiable information in order to establish and enhance our relationship with you. Also, it helps us deliver a premium user experience. ManiaTV's use of this information includes the following general purposes: contacting you, customizing the content and advertising you view, fulfilling your requests for products or services, identifying the comments you post on the ManiaTV Site, improving our services, conducting research, and compiling aggregate data for internal and external business purposes.
Cookies, as used by every major website, are small bits of information placed on the hard drive of your computer. Cookies remember information about your activities on a website. For example, cookies can store your session for easy sign-in to a website you have previously visited. They enable us to make your visits to the ManiaTV Site more enjoyable. Information about your activities on the ManiaTV Site, which we obtain through cookies, and other non-personally identifiable information about you may also be used to serve you online ads that we believe are consistent with your interests.
ManiaTV may display targeted advertisements based on information about you, such as your interests. ManiaTV does not provide any personally identifiable information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad, although advertisers (including ad serving companies) may assume that people who interact with, view, or click targeted ads meet the targeting criteria.
Aggregate data is information (originally personally identifiable or non-personally identifiable) that subsequently is used in aggregate form. We may use aggregate data for purposes of research or analysis. We may conduct research about customer demographics, internet use, and interests and behavior based on personally identifiable information we gather. Although aggregate data may be based in part on personally identifiable information about you (for example, we may want to know the general age range of visitors watching shows on our site), it does not identify you personally. ManiaTV may share this type of aggregate data with a variety of third parties, including its affiliates, advertisers and other current and prospective business partners. But because this form of data does not identify particular users, these third parties will not be able to contact you based solely on this data.
We may use aggregate data collected for website administration, advertising, and promotional purposes, and we may share this information with various affiliated and unaffiliated entities. For example, IP addresses are used for the purposes of system administration and to provide anonymous aggregated data to advertisers about the volume of use on the ManiaTV Services. We may also enter into agreements with outside companies that possess the technology that allows us to customize the advertising and marketing messages you receive while using the ManiaTV Services. Your non-personally identifiable information and clickstream data about your activities may be shared with these companies so this customization can be accomplished. Our agreement with these companies restricts them from sharing your information with third parties or using it for any other purpose. Clickstream and demographic information may also be shared with our advertisers and business partners.
You may, at your option, disclose your own personally identifiable information or other information by any means you choose, including, without limitation: (i) registering with ManiaTV; (ii) setting up a profile on the ManiaTV Site; (iii) participating in surveys or otherwise providing information directly to ManiaTV; (iv) sending emails or other written or electronic communications to ManiaTV; and (v) posting information on areas of the ManiaTV Site that may be viewed by other users or the public.
We will obtain your consent to send you email messages from ManiaTV and our business partners about special promotions. Whether you opt in or later opt out of receiving these communications from ManiaTV, we reserve the right to send you administrative messages, service announcements, and other similar communications without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them. This is important in case we need to communicate with you about items such as your account, website maintenance, and other non-promotional matters. From time to time, you may be given an opportunity to indicate your preferences regarding various account settings, communication preferences, or other information related to your account. For example, if you wish to receive additional communications relevant to you, such as alert messages about your favorite content, you will need to elect to receive them. Therefore, please take that opportunity to review and select your preferences carefully.
If you register with ManiaTV and provide personally identifiable information such personally identifiable information may be viewed by other users or the public through use of the ManiaTV Services (ie., posting a review). Please note that you are not required to agree to have this information appear, but if you do not agree you will not be able to access some of the ManiaTV Services.
Only if you have given ManiaTV consent, we may (i) use your personally identifiable information to provide you with information about ManiaTV's features, services, and other offerings that may be of interest to you; (ii) provide information or offers to you on behalf of ManiaTV's business partners (please note that if we were to do this, we would not give those partners personally identifiable information, such as your name or address); or (iii) share your personally identifiable information with advertisers, business partners, and other entities that are not affiliated with ManiaTV who would like to send you information about their products and services directly.
Under certain circumstances (for example, if you win a contest), we may post your personally identifiable information on the ManiaTV Site. However, we will notify you of this possibility when collecting personally identifiable information or we will obtain your consent.
We may also share your personally identifiable information with companies that provide services to us, including outside contractors or agents who help us manage our information activities (for example, contest and sweepstakes administration), but they may only use your personally identifiable information to provide us with a specific service and not for any other purpose. Similarly, we may share your personally identifiable information with other people or entities in order to provide goods or services that you have requested or to complete a transaction at your request.
We use reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural measures to safeguard personally identifiable information in our possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure, or modification. Despite these efforts, please note that no data transmission or storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. We want you to feel confident using the ManiaTV Services but we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. Please refer to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission's web site for information on how to protect yourself from identity theft.
