FAN MEDIA NETWORK
Information We Collect
Fan Media gathers information about its users in three basic ways: (i) personal information You knowingly choose to disclose to us and (ii) information collected by us as You interact with our Service and (iii) third party information from advertisers and sponsors.
Fan Media’s objective is to allow You to share Your information with everyone through the Service. You decide how much information You feel comfortable sharing through our Service. You can block other users from texting You, but there are no privacy settings with respect to your profile and the content you post through the Service.
Personal Information You Give Us: When You register with us, or sign up for various services, You will give us certain personal information, such as Your name, Your email address, Your telephone number, and other personal or preference information that You choose to provide. You may also provide us with certain information when we communicate with You electronically. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then You might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that You provide for such purposes as responding to Your requests, customizing future experiences on our Service, improving our Service and communicating with You.
Of course, when You use our Service, and begin to voluntarily disclose personal information by establishing a profile, posting Content, sending messages and communicating with Members, this information will be gathered and stored as well. You post Content (as defined in the Fan Media Service Agreement) on our Service at Your own discretion and Your own risk. We cannot and do not guarantee that Content You post will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. Once You register, You can add or remove personal information about Yourself. However, You understand and acknowledge that, even after removal, copies of Content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if other Users have copied or stored Your Content. Any improper collection or misuse of information provided through our Service is a violation of Fan Media’s Service Agreement and should be reported to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If You choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about Fan Media, we may send an email, text or notification to those friends. Those friends will not receive any other email, text or notification from Fan Media unless they choose to respond.
Metadata is technical data that is associated with Content. For example, metadata can describe how, when and by whom a piece of Content was collected and how that Content is formatted. You can add or may have metadata added to the Content including a tag (e.g., to mark headlines when You post a video), geotag (e.g., to mark Your location to a video), or other data. This makes Your Content more searchable by others and more interactive. If You geotag Your video or tag Your video using other’s APIs then, Your latitude and longitude will be stored with the video and searchable (e.g., through a location or map feature).
We may also receive information (“Log Data”) such as Your IP address, browser type, operating system, the pages visited, location, Your mobile carrier, search terms and cookie information. We may receive Log Data when You interact with our Services, for example, when You visit our Services, interact with our notifications. We may also receive Log Data when You click on, view or interact with a link on our Services to a third party application, such as when You choose to install another application through Fan Media. Fan Media uses Log Data to provide, understand, and improve our Services.
Fan Media may use a common technology known as a clear gif or action tag on the Service and in email communications with Members. A clear gif (standing for “graphic interface format”) is a 1x1pixel graphic image that Fan Media or one of its partners places on a page of the Service. Fan Media may also occasionally place clear gif in email messages that it sends to Members. Clear gifs provide important information about how Members use our Service and respond to email messages. This helps better track certain promotions and understand the effectiveness of Fan Media’s outreach to Members. Fan Media may also allow its advertisers and partners the ability to use clear gifs on our Service solely to track Members who link from a Website to this Service, though this ability to track such activity does not allow these entities access to any Member’s personal information to which they are not otherwise entitled.
We use third party analytics tools to help us measure traffic and usage trends for our Service. These tools collect information sent by Your device or our Service, including pages You visit, add-ons and other information that assists us in improving our Service.
Fan Media also uses GPS to track its users’ locations. This allows fans to search for other fans of their favorite teams in their area and to connect with them via in-app texting. However, you will be given an opportunity to opt out of GPS tracking if you so choose.
Children Under Age 18
Fan Media prohibits persons under the age of 18 from registering on its Service, and does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 18. If You are under 18, do not attempt to register for Fan Media or send any information about Yourself to us, including name, telephone number or email address. No one under age 18 may provide any personal information to or on Fan Media. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a user under age 18, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If You believe that we might have any information from or about a user under 18, please contact us at email@example.com.
Sale or Acquisition of Fan Media
Third Party Advertising
Advertisements appearing on our Service may be delivered by Fan Media or one or our advertising partners. Sometimes ads are delivered /served directly to users by the third party advertisers. They automatically receive information about Your device or Your IP address when this happens. These third party advertisers may also download cookies or use clear gifs to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize the ad content. They may compile information about where individuals using Your device saw their advertisements and determine which advertisements are clicked. Fan Media does not have access to or control of the cookies or clear gifs utilized by third parties.
We may institute programs with advertising partners or sponsors in which they share information with us. We may ask them to tell us how our users responded to the ad we showed them (and for comparison purposes, how other users who didn’t see the ads acted). This data sharing, commonly known as “conversion tracking,” helps us measure our advertising effectiveness and improve the quality of the advertisements You see. We may receive information about whether or not You’ve seen or interacted with certain ads or other sites in order to measure the effectiveness of those ads.
