EMBARRASSINGTV.COM PRIVACY POLICY:

(Effective as of 1 January 2015)

This Privacy Policy governs EmbarrassingTv.com data collection practices. At the same time that EmbarrassingTv.com and Bogan Media, Inc., are committed to bringing you information tailored to your individual needs, we recognize the importance of protecting the privacy of your personally identifiable information (PII). In adopting this Privacy Policy, our intent is to balance our legitimate business interests in collecting and using PII and your reasonable expectations of privacy. Please note: this policy applies only to information collected by EmbarrassingTv.com, including through its mobile website and mobile products and applications, and does not govern or apply to information collected or used by Bogan Media, Inc.,, or its divisions or affiliates through other means.

Personally Identifiable Information (PII) that you provide to EmbarrassingTv.com:

EmbarrassingTv.com may ask you to provide various types of PII to enhance your experience on our site. For example, EmbarrassingTv.com may ask for information such as your name or e-mail address. The more information you provide, the better we are able to customize your experience. We may also ask you for other information at other times, such as when you enter a contest or participate in a promotion, or when you order products from EmbarrassingTv.com. Whenever you provide PII to us, we will make an effort to link to our Privacy Policy. See below about “cookies” and what other information is collected.

How does EmbarrassingTv.com use PII?

Our primary goal in collecting PII is to provide you, the user, with a customized experience on our network of sites. This includes personalization services, interactive communications, online shopping and many other types of services, most of which are completely free to you.


EmbarrassingTv.com
uses the PII you provide to us in several ways. Some examples are:

A user’s PII may be used by EmbarrassingTv.com for editorial purposes such as to contact you as part of an online survey. Additionally, we may also use the information provided by you to: 1) contact you with legal notices, 2) to advise you of any material changes or additions to our Service or terms and conditions, 3) account status (including confirmation of subscription of donation) and/or 4) if required we reserve the right to send you offers and information about EmbarrassingTv.com, Bogan Media, Inc.,, and its affiliates. However, if you do not wish to receive the foregoing, please contact us to request removal from this list.

Further, if you told us in your account preferences that you would be interested in receiving e-mail from us, we may send you e-mails about EmbarrassingTv.com products, promotions, or services as well as on behalf of other companies. However, if you no longer wish to receive any of the foregoing, you may change your preferences for the future at any time by clicking on the following to contact us.

EmbarrassingTv.com displays advertisements and delivers targeted advertisements on behalf of advertisers. Advertisers give us an advertisement and tell us the type of audience they want to reach (for example, males 18- 25 years old). We take the advertisement and display it to users meeting that criteria. In this process, the advertiser never has access to individual account information.

EmbarrassingTv.com also does research on our users’ demographics, interests and behavior based on the information you provide to us including upon subscription, on order forms, during a promotion, as well as from our server log files or from surveys. We do this to better understand and serve our users. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis and EmbarrassingTv.com may share this aggregated data with advertisers or other businesses. In addition, under confidentiality agreements, EmbarrassingTv.com may match user information with third party data.

If EmbarrassingTv.com changes its use of your PII we will notify you by the email that you provided at subscription and /or prominently post such changes in this Privacy Policy.

Do other companies or people have access to PII provided to EmbarrassingTv.com?

When you are on an area of EmbarrassingTv.com and are asked for PII, you are providing that information to EmbarrassingTv.com, Bogan Media, Inc., Inc., its divisions or affiliates, or vendors providing contractual services for EmbarrassingTv.com (such as hosting vendors and list managers). If PII is being provided to and/or maintained by any company other than these, our policy is that we will not transfer that PII unless notice is given prior to transfer. If you do not want your information to be shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer by not using that particular service or by expressing this preference, if requested. See below for additional information about PII:

Promotions:

Promotions that run on EmbarrassingTv.com may be sponsored by companies other than EmbarrassingTv.com or Bogan Media, Inc., or may be co-sponsored by EmbarrassingTv.com, and/or Bogan Media, Inc., and another company. Some or all PII provided by you during a promotion may be shared with the sponsor. If information will be shared, we will disclose such sharing prior to the transfer. You can decide not to participate in the promotion if you don’t want your PII to be shared. In certain circumstances, you may not be able to participate in a particular promotion if you chose not to share PII. Currently, most EmbarrassingTv.com promotions are limited to U.S. or North America resident.

Advertisers and Links:

EmbarrassingTv.com advertisers, or Web sites that have links on our site, may also collect PII directly from you. The information practices of companies collecting data on our site or Web sites linked to EmbarrassingTv.com are not covered by this Privacy Policy.

We do not control the privacy policies of our advertisers, sponsors or other sites or businesses to which we provide hyperlinks or access. Please visit the sites of these businesses to review their privacy policies.

EmbarrassingTv.com users should also be aware that, when you voluntarily disclose personal information in chat areas or bulletin boards, that information may be collected by others and may result in unsolicited messages from others.

Except as stated in this Privacy Policy or at the time of collection, a user’s PII will not be transferred to a party outside EmbarrassingTv.com, Bogan Media, Inc.,, its divisions or affiliates, or its service vendors unless notice is given at the time of collection or prior to transfer. EmbarrassingTv.com, Bogan Media, Inc., or its divisions or affiliates may also disclose account information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our User Agreement or may be causing injury to, or interference with (intentionally or unintentionally) EmbarrassingTv.com or Bogan Media, Inc., rights or property, other EmbarrassingTv.com users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.

Data Security:

We have in place physical, electronic, and executive procedures to protect the information we collect online. However, as effective as these measures are, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the internet.

What information is collected by web servers?

Web servers serving EmbarrassingTv.com automatically collect certain non-PII, such as which pages each user visits and the domain name of visitors. This information is used for various purposes including internal review, to tailor information to individual visitors and other users, for traffic audits, and as described elsewhere in this privacy policy. We also provide this information (as well as information from third-party market researchers) about our users on an aggregated, anonymous basis to our advertisers.

What are cookies and how does EmbarrassingTv.com use them?

EmbarrassingTv.com places a “cookie” on the browser of an EmbarrassingTv.com user’s computer to store and sometimes track information about you. A cookie can be used to tell when your computer has contacted a Web site; we may also use the information for editorial purposes and for other purposes such as measuring certain traffic patterns. For example, cookies are used to ensure that you don’t see the same ad too many times in a single session and that you do not have to reenter your login name or password during your visit. We may also use cookies to understand your use of the Service. Advertising service vendors that serve ads into our site may also use their own cookies. You may opt out of those cookies as described below. You may opt-out of the cookies delivered by EmbarrassingTv.com by changing the setting on your browser. Please be aware that this will disable all cookies delivered to your browser, not just the ones delivered by EmbarrassingTv.com.

How Could I Opt-Out of Online Advertising Cookies?

Online advertising for the Service is delivered by the vendor DoubleClick. DoubleClick places cookies on your browser to facilitate serving particular ads – for instance, to help determine whether you have seen a particular advertisement before and to avoid sending you duplicate advertisements. You can opt out of DoubleClick’s use of cookies for these purposes by visiting http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/index.aspx.

In some cases, we and advertisers on the Service work with other third-party vendors to help deliver advertisements tailored to your interests. These vendors include ad networks and audience segment providers, and they place cookies on your browser to collect information about your online activity (e.g., the sites and pages you have visited) in order to help advertisers deliver particular ads that they believe you would find most relevant. You can opt out of those vendors’ use of cookies to tailor advertising to you by visiting http://www.aboutads.info/.

Often our advertisers contract with a third-party service to host their ads. In this case, an ad serving vendor contacts the advertisers’ hosting service for a particular advertisement. In that case, an independent cookie may be used by the third-party service. We do not have a mechanism to allow visitors to opt-out of cookies from vendors with whom we do not have a contractual relationship.

Kids under 14: Do not send any information about yourself to us – including information like your name, address or e-mail address. In general, we do not knowingly collect PII from children under 14. If, in limited circumstances, we do knowingly collect PII from a child under the age of 14, we will do so only with verified parental consent prior to collection. In the event that we learn that we have collected any PII from a child under the age of 14 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information from our database as quickly as possible.
