Video Poodle does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 such as full name, email address, home address, or phone number. We want parents to feel confident about their child’s activity while using our Website. Because of the young age of our children users, only parents are allowed to create an account or register for newsletters and promotional emails. In the event that we have knowledge of a child under the age of 13 submitting any personal information to us via the Website, we may use the email address provided by the child for the sole purpose of responding to the child’s question or carrying out his or her request on a one-time-only basis. We will not use the email address provided by the child for any other purpose, and we will delete it from our files once the question has been answered or the request has been fulfilled. If we become aware that we have unknowingly collected personal contact information other than an email address from a child under the age of 13 or in the event that you believe we have collected personal information from your child, please contact us at the email address provided below and we will delete the information immediately. For more information about keeping your child’s privacy safe, please visit http://www.onguardonline.gov/articles/0031-protecting-your-childs-privacy-online.
Collection and Use of Information
To fully access the Website’s features, a user is required to complete a registration process which involves an email address and password in order to log into their accounts across different devices and platforms.
Members' full names, to the extent collected and stored, are never directly revealed to others users. We use the information collected during the registration process to communicate with you regarding your account, including providing you with promotional emails or newsletters about new content, features, services, promotions, etc. Video Poodle respects your desire to not be flooded with unwanted newsletters and emails. You may opt out of receiving announcement emails from us at any time by following the opt-out link contained in the promotional email or by contacting us through our “Contact Us” page.
Cookies and Tracking Technologies
By visiting this Website, as a member or otherwise, you acknowledge, understand and hereby agree that you are giving us your consent to set and access “Cookies,” “Web beacons,” or other technologies that are used to collect information for various reasons on behalf of Video Poodle, including to enhance members’ experience and to provide certain functions on the Website (for example to recognize you by name when you return to the Website and to save your password). “Cookies” are small text files placed on your computer that collect information about your use of this Website, such as the pages visited, the date and the time of a visit, etc. Any information collected by the cookies or other technologies used by Video Poodle cannot be used to identify you, nor will such information be associated with personal information. Most browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually set your browser to disable cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. The Help function on most browsers contains instructions on how to accept or reject cookies or to notify you when a cookie is set. However, it is possible that some parts of this Website will not function properly if you disable cookies.
“Web beacons” are small pieces of code used to track pages and content accessed and viewed by users on the Website. When we send HTML-formatted (as opposed to plain text) emails to our users, Web Beacons may be embedded in such emails to allow us to monitor readership levels so that we can identify aggregate trends and individual usage to provide our users with more relevant content or offers. Web beacons in emails may recognize activities such as when an email was opened, how many times an email was forwarded, which links in the email were clicked on, etc. Web Beacons cannot be declined when delivered via a regular web page. However, Web Beacons can be refused when delivered via email. If you do not wish to receive our Web Beacons via email, you will need to disable HTML images or refuse HTML (select Text only) emails via your email software.
Subscriptions and Third Party Service Providers
We rely on certain third-party services for the operation of the Website, such as credit card payment processing. The security of your personal information is important to us. To the extent a third-party service provider needs to access your information in order to perform services for us, we share your information with that provider. However, we do require that any third-party service providers limit their use of your information solely to providing services to us and that they maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of your information and not make unauthorized use or disclosure of the information. You acknowledge that we are not responsible for your personal information as provided to the third-party service provider.
