Our video service, including the Content and our video player, and any other features, tools, applications, materials, or other services offered from time to time by Spin The Bottle in connection with its business on any of the Sites are referred to collectively as the “Spin The Bottle Services.” We are a website based in the United States.
The Spin The Bottle Site is not intended for children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13 years of age.
Spin The Bottle collects personal information when you use the Spin The Bottle Services. Spin The Bottle may combine information about you that we collect with information we obtain from business partners or other companies.
When you register, we may ask for information such as your name, email address, birth date, gender, address, city and state of residence, and ZIP code. From time to time, we may also ask you optionally to provide other information. If you choose to provide such information, you are giving Spin The Bottle the permission to use and store it consistent with this policy. Therefore, please understand when you sign in with Spin The Bottle, you are not anonymous to us.
In addition, Spin The Bottle collects information about your transactions with us and with some of our business partners. For example, Spin The Bottle 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 (for more information on cookies, please refer to the section titled “What are cookies, and how are they and other technologies used to collect information?”).
Why does Spin The Bottle collect personally identifiable information about me?
Spin The Bottle collects personally identifiable information in order to establish and enhance our relationship with you. Also, it helps us deliver a first class user experience. Spin The Bottle’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, improving our services, conducting research, and providing anonymous reporting for internal and external clients. We only collect personally identifiable information from you because you are voluntarily submitting the information to us in order to enjoy certain Spin The Bottle Services.
We also may obtain personally identifiable information from reputable third parties in order to further enhance your user experience with the Spin The Bottle Services.
What are cookies, and how are they and other technologies used to collect information?
Cookies 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 Spin The Bottle Site more enjoyable. Information about your activities on the Spin The Bottle Site and other non-personally identifiable information about you may also be used to target the online ads you encounter to those we believe are consistent with your interests.
In addition, we may use a service that collects data remotely by using so-called “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs,” or similar means (collectively, “Pixel Tags”) embedded in the Site’s content. A Pixel Tag is an object that is embedded in a web page. It is usually invisible to users but allows website operators to check whether a user has viewed a particular web page. Pixel Tags collect only a limited set of information, including a cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the Pixel Tag resides. You may not decline Pixel Tags, however, they can be rendered ineffective by declining all cookies or modifying your browser setting to notify you each time a cookie is tendered and permit you to accept or decline cookies on an individual basis.
Do you collect anonymous aggregated data, and what do you do with it?
Anonymous data is information (originally personally identifiable or non-personally identifiable) that subsequently is used in aggregate form. We may use anonymous data for purposes of research or analysis. We may conduct research on our customer demographics, internet usage, and interests and behavior based on personal data we gather. Although anonymous data may be based in part on personal data, it does not identify you personally. Spin The Bottle may share this type of anonymous data with a variety of third parties, including its affiliates, advertisers, and other current and prospective business partners. But because it is anonymous, these third parties will not be able to contact you based on this data.
Spin The Bottle may display targeted advertisements based on personal information. Spin The Bottle does not provide any personal 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.
We may use anonymous data collected for website administration, advertising, and promotional purposes, and we may share such information with various affiliated and unaffiliated entities for such purposes. 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 Spin The Bottle 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 Spin The Bottle Services. Your non-personally identifiable information and click stream 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. Anonymous click stream and demographic information may also be shared with our advertisers and business partners.
Do I have a choice in how Spin The Bottle uses my personal information?
You may, at your option, disclose your own personally identifiable information by any means you choose, including, without limitation: (i) registering with the Site; (ii) setting up a profile on the Site; and (iii) posting such information on areas of the Site that may be viewed by other users or the public.
Whether you opt in or opt out of receiving communications from Spin The Bottle, 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.
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here.
How does Spin The Bottle use my personally identifiable information?
We use your first name, last initial, image, and state and/or city of residence as your user ID on the Site. Therefore, if you register with the Site or complete a user profile and provide this form of personally identifiable information to Spin The Bottle, it may be viewed by other users or the public. If you do not wish others to see this information, you should configure your privacy setting to “private”.
Only if you have given Spin The Bottle consent, we may (i) use your personally identifiable information to provide you with information about Spin The Bottle’s features, services, and other offerings that may be of interest to you; (ii) send information or offers to users on behalf of Spin The Bottle’s 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 Spin The Bottle who would like to send you information about their products and services.
Under certain circumstances (for example, if you win a contest), we may post your personally identifiable information on the Spin The Bottle Site. However, we will notify you of this possibility when collecting personally identifiable information or we will obtain your consent.
Spin The Bottle’s employees, agents, and contractors must have a legitimate business reason to obtain access to your personally identifiable information. We may 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.
Is the personal information collected about me secure?
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. For example, passwords and other sensitive information are encrypted in transit.
We limit access to personal information about you to employees whom we believe reasonably need that information to provide products or services to you or to do their jobs.
Are there other parties collecting information about me that I should be aware of while using the Spin The Bottle Services?
