The Information We Collect

When you visit YOUniversityTV you provide us with two types of information: (i) personally identifiable information(“Personal Information”) you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected by us, and (ii) information collected by us as you interact with our Website.

When you register with YOUniversityTV, you provide us with certain Personal Information, such as your name, your email address, your telephone number, your address, your gender, schools attended and any other personal or preference information that you provide to us.

When you enter YOUniversityTV, we collect your browser type and IP address. This information is gathered from all YOUniversityTV visitors. In addition, we store certain information from your browser using"cookies." Cookies are small bits of information stored on the user's computer to identify the user’s preferences. YOUniversityTV may use cookies and similar tools to customize the content and advertising you receive based on, among other things, the Personal Information you have provided. We use session ID cookies to confirm that users are logged in. These cookies terminate once the user closes the browser. By default, we use a persistent cookie that stores your login ID (but not your password) to make it easier for you to login when you come back to YOUniversityTV. You can remove or block this cookie using the settings in your browser if you want to disable this convenience feature.

When you use YOUniversityTV, you may set up your personal profile, form relationships, send messages, view videos and/or pictures, perform searches and queries, form groups, set up events, add applications, and transmit information through various channels. We collect this information so that we can provide you personalized features to enhance the services offered by YOUniversityTV. When you update information, we usually keep a backup copy of the prior version for a reasonable period of time to enable reversion to the prior version of that information. YOUniversityTV may also collect information about you from other sources, such as newspapers, blogs, instant messaging services, and other users of the YOUniversityTV service in order to provide you with more useful information and a more personalized experience. By using YOUniversityTV, you are consenting to have your personal data transferred to and processed in the United States.

You post User Content (as defined in the YOUniversityTV Terms of Use) on the Website at your own risk. Although we allow you to set privacy options that limit access to your pages, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of other users with whom you may choose to share your pages and information. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that User Content you post on the Website will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. In addition, YOUniversityTV makes chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or news groups available to its users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your Personal Information. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website. You understand and acknowledge that, even after removal, copies of User Content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if other users have copied or stored your User Content.

Any improper collection or misuse of information provided on YOUniversityTV is a violation of the YOUniversityTV Terms of Service and should be reported to info@youniversitytv.com.

YOUniversityTV does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register. If you are under the age of 13, please do not attempt to register for YOUniversityTV or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 may provide any personal information to or on YOUniversityTV. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at info@youniversitytv.com

Children Between the Ages of 13 and 18

Use of Information Obtained by YOUniversityTV

As described in detail below, YOUniversityTV may use your Personal Information in many ways, including sending you promotional materials, and sharing your information with third parties so that these third parties can send you promotional materials.

When you register with YOUniversityTV, you create your own profile and privacy settings. Your profile information, as well as your name, email and photo, are displayed to people in the networks specified in your privacy settings to enable you to connect with people on YOUniversityTV. We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services offered by YOUniversityTV that we think you may find valuable.

YOUniversityTV uses profile information to, in part, allow you to review and edit your profile when you access the Website so that you can present your information to other users permitted to view that information based on your privacy settings. You may choose what information you provide in your profile, including your name, date of birth, interests, hobbies, groups with which you are affiliated (ie. schools or organizations), videos and/or pictures, or personal statements. Profile information you submit to YOUniversityTV will be available to users of YOUniversityTV who have access to your profile based on your privacy settings.

YOUniversityTV may send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. Generally, you may opt out of such emails from the Notifications page, though YOUniversityTV reserves the right to send you notices about your account even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.

YOUniversityTV may use information in your profile without identifying you as an individual to third parties. We do this for purposes such as aggregating how many people like a school or video and personalizing advertisements and promotions so that we can provide you the services offered by YOUniversityTV. We believe this benefits you. You can make more informed choices about the schools you are considering, and know more about the world around you. In addition, where there are advertisements, they're more likely to be interesting to you. For example, if you put a favorite school in your profile, we might serve you an advertisement highlighting information about that school or other, similar schools that may also be of interest to you.

We may use information about you that we collect from other sources, including but not limited to newspapers and Internet sources such as blogs, instant messaging services, YOUniversityTV platform developers and other users of YOUniversityTV, to supplement your profile. Where such information is used, we generally allow you to specify in your privacy settings that you do not want this to be done or to take other actions that limit the connection of this information to your profile.

Sharing Your Information with Third Parties

YOUniversityTV is about sharing information with others, while providing you with privacy settings that restrict other users from accessing your information. We allow you to choose the information you provide through YOUniversityTV. Our network architecture and your privacy settings allow you to make informed choices about who has access to your information. We share your information with third parties only in limited circumstances where we believe such sharing is 1)reasonably necessary to offer the services offered by YOUniversityTV, 2) legally required or, 3) permitted by you. For example:

  • YOUniversityTV may share your Personal Information with selected third parties so that they can send you promotional materials about goods and services (including special offers and promotions) offered by them. When sharing your information for promotional purposes, YOUniversityTV attempts to select only reputable companies and institutions that offer high quality products and services. When YOUniversityTV shares your Personal Information with a third party, your Personal Information will become permanently subject to the information use and sharing practices of the third party, and the third party will not be restricted by this Privacy Policy with respect to its use and further sharing of your Personal Information.
  • We may also provide information to service providers to help us bring you the services we offer. Specifically, we may use third parties to facilitate our business, such as to host the service at a co-location facility for servers, to send out email updates about YOUniversityTV, to remove repetitive information from our user lists, to process payments for products or services, to offer an online job application process, or to provide search results or links (including sponsored links). In connection with these offerings and business operations, our service providers may have access to your Personal Information for use for a limited time in connection with these business activities. Where we utilize third parties for the processing of any Personal Information, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information to the YOUniversityTV-specified purposes.
  • We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information until we have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the YOUniversityTV service or using the YOUniversityTV name, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.
  • We let you choose to share information with marketers or electronic commerce providers through sponsored groups or other on-site offers.
  • We may offer stores or provide services jointly with other companies on YOUniversityTV. You can tell when another company is involved in any store or service provided on YOUniversityTV, and we may share customer information with that company in connection with your use of that store or service.
  • If the ownership of all or substantially all of the YOUniversityTV business, or individual business units owned by YOUniversityTV, LLC, were to change, your user information may be transferred to the new owner so the service can continue operations. In any such transfer of information, your user information would remain subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy.

When you use YOUniversityTV, certain information you post or share with third parties, such as Personal Information, comments, messages, photos, videos, or other information, may be shared with other users in accordance with the privacy settings you select. All such sharing of information is done at your own risk. Please keep in mind that if you disclose Personal Information in your profile or when posting comments, messages, photos, videos, or other items, this information may become publicly available.

Third Party Advertising

Advertisements that appear on YOUniversityTV are sometimes delivered directly to users by third party advertisers. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. These third party advertisers may also download cookies to your computer, or use other technologies such as JavaScript and "web beacons" (also known as "1x1 gifs") to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. Doing this allows the advertising network to recognize your computer each time they send you an advertisement in order to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. In this way, they may compile information about where individuals using your computer or browser saw their advertisements and determine which advertisements are clicked. YOUniversityTV does not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed by the third party advertisers. Third party advertisers have no access to your contact information stored on YOUniversityTV unless you choose to share it with them.

This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by YOUniversityTV and does not cover the use of cookies or other tracking technologies by any of its advertisers.
