This Privacy Policy describes the privacy practices for MyTVPal.com and is subject to MyTVPal’s Terms of Use. Your use of MyTVPal.com remains subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy and MyTVPal’s Terms of Use.  Please read this Privacy Policy carefully to understand how your personal information will be treated as you make use of the services we offer.  If you do not accept the terms set out in this Privacy Policy, please do use MyTVPal.com or other services we may offer.  Please note that we may change or modify this Privacy Policy from time to time, so please check this page periodically.

 

  1. Information Collection and Use.  MyTVPal.com maintains full control over all personal and contact information collected about you on this web site.  MyTVPal.com will not sell, share or rent such information to others in ways other than as disclosed in this Privacy Policy.  Please note that notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, this Privacy Policy does not cover information or content that you submit to our site for the purpose of publicly posting such information or content.
  2.  Registration.  In order to use certain of the services available on our site, a user must first complete our registration form.  During registration, users are required to give their contact information (such as name and email address).  This information is used to contact the users about the products and services on MyTVPal.com for which they have expressed interest. When you order any product or service for which we charge a fee, we need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card number, and expiration date. This allows us to process and fulfill your order and to notify you of your order status.
  3.  Cookies.  A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user.  Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site.  Once the user closes his or her browser, the cookie terminates.  By setting a cookie on the browser of a user, we help to ensure that the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site.  If a user rejects a cookie, he or she may still visit our site.  The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of the site or have to log in his or her password multiple times.  Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance their experience on our site.  Some of our business affiliates, such as advertisers, may use cookies on our site, but we have no access to or control over those cookies.
  4.  Log Files.  We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer our site, track users’ movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.  IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
  5.  Surveys and Contests.  From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests.  Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information.  Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level).  Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes.  Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
  6.  Credit Redemption. We may ask you for additional information to process a request for a credit redemption in conjunction with one or more of our rewards programs. We may choose to add such information to our database record about you, which will be treated the same as other business records. Without limiting the foregoing, We may use your mailing address information to send you redeemed credits and, in limited circumstances, other communications. With respect to your social security number, it is our policy not to disclose this number to third parties except as required by law or as otherwise contemplated by this Statement.  We may submit information about you to the IRS, as required. Also, we may choose to feature your Member ID in promotional materials (both online and offline) to highlight your earnings successes.
  7.  Referrals.  If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend’s name and email address. MyTVPal.com stores this information for the sole purpose of following up on the referral.  The friend may contact MYTVPal.com to request the removal of this information from our database.
  8. Information Sharing.  We may share aggregated demographic information with our business affiliates and advertisers.  This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.  We may enter into an arrangement with a third party to provide specific services or products.  When the user signs up for these services or products, we will share the names or other contact information that is necessary for that third party to provide the services or products.  Those third parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information for any purpose other than providing those services or products.  Please note that we may disclose your information in connection with a merger, acquisition, sale, bankruptcy, reorganization or other change of control of MyTVPal.com or related subsidiaries or affiliated companies.
  9. Links.  Our site contains links to other sites, including without limitation to those of our advertisers.  Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of those other sites.  We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information.  This Privacy Policy applies only to personal information collected by this web site.
  10.  Content Submissions.  All content that you submit to us may be automatically displayed on our site.  We may use such content as described in MyTVPal.com’s Terms of Use.  If you have registered for our services through a co-branded site, we may be required to transfer your content to the co-brand partner for their use and display.  You may change or delete any of your Content only as set forth in MyTVPal.com’s Terms of Use, and we may not be able to effect any changes or deletions with respect to content that has been transferred to other sites or parties.
  11.  Security Measures and Limits on Our Abilities.  We use industry-standard methods of securing our databases of user information, such as, if and where appropriate, firewalls and limits on who can access user information databases.  However, please keep in mind that there is no such thing as perfect security on the Internet. It is possible for Internet transmissions containing your personal information to be intercepted by others and it is impossible for us to ensure the privacy and security of all transmissions made to and from our site.  A site and service as complicated as ours cannot be perfect, and therefore we may inadvertently make uses or disclosures of your information in ways not contemplated by, or in violation of, this Privacy Policy or the Terms.  For example, if our software experiences an error, certain of your personal information may be displayed on our site even if you have configured your preferences to hide such information.  Your sole remedy in such situations will be for us to work with you to correct such errors. 
  12.  Special OffersWe send all new registered users a welcoming email to verify password and username. Established members will occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, and a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive these types of communications. Please see our choice and opt-out provisions below.
  13.  Site and Service UpdatesWe may also send our users site and service announcement updates. Registered users are not able to unsubscribe from service announcements, which contain important information about the service. We communicate with the user to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account via email or phone.

  15.  Choice/Opt OutOur users are given the opportunity to ‘opt-out’ of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information. Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials from our partners may opt-out of receiving these communications by replying to unsubscribe in the subject line in the emailUsers of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties.  We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether they should proceed with services that require an outside party, or not.

In all circumstances, you may not use robots, scripts or other automated procedures to collect any information, including user contact information, from MyTVPal.com.

However, irrespective of those situations, MyTVPal.com can unilaterally turn over information about you to the government if it believes such disclosure to be appropriate, in which case you authorize it to do so. You also consent to MyTVPal.com disclosing information about you to actual or potential parties to a lawsuit that MyTVPal.com is or may become involved in (a) if it are required to do so, (b) if it reasonably believes that such disclosures will potentially mitigate its liability, or (c) to enforce its rights.
