We use the information we collect to provide, analyze, administer, enhance and personalize our services and marketing efforts, to process your registration, your orders and your payments, and to communicate with you on these and other topics. For example, we use the information we collect for:

· analyzing and understanding our audience; improving our service (including our user interface experiences), delivery optimization, content selection, and recommendation algorithms;
· communicating with you concerning our service (for example by email, push notifications and text messaging), so that we can send you news about Videothèque, details about new features and content available on Videothèque, and special offers, promotional announcements and consumer surveys, and to assist you with operational requests such as password reset requests. Please see “Your Choices” below to learn how to set or change your communications preferences.
We disclose your information for certain purposes and to third parties, as described below:
Whenever in the course of sharing information we transfer personal information to other countries or regions with comprehensive data protection laws, we will ensure that the information is transferred in accordance with our Terms of Service and as permitted by the applicable laws on data protection.
You may also choose to disclose your information in the following ways:
· While using the Videothèque service you may have opportunity to post information publicly, and third parties could use the information you disclose;
· Certain portions of our service may contain a tool which gives you the option to share information by email, text message and social or other sharing applications, using the clients and applications on your smart device;
· Social plugins (including those offered by Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr and Google) allow you to share information on those platforms.
In order to provide you with ease of access to your account and to help administer the Videothèque service, we implement technology that enables us to recognize you as the account holder and provide you with direct access to your account without requiring you to retype any password or other user identification when you revisit the Videothèque service. Where possible, users of public or shared devices should log out at the completion of each visit. If you sell or return a computer or Videothèque ready device, you should log-out and deactivate the device before doing so. If you do not maintain the security of your password or device, or fail to log out or deactivate your device, subsequent users may be able to access your account, including your personal information.
If you share or otherwise allow others to have access to your account, they will be able to see your information, including in some cases personal information, such as your watch history, favorites, and account information (including your email address or other information in your “Account” portion of our website).
If you no longer want to receive certain communications from us via email, simply click the "unsubscribe" link in the email. Please note that you cannot unsubscribe from certain correspondence from us, such as messages relating to your account transactions.
To exercise choices regarding cookies set through our website, as well as other types of online tracking and Internet advertising, see “Cookies and Internet Advertising” below.
If you have a question regarding our privacy practices, or want to exercise your rights regarding your personal information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We believe we use reasonable administrative, logical, physical and managerial measures to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft and unauthorized access, use and modification. Unfortunately, no measures can be guaranteed to provide 100% security. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the security of your information. We do not store any credit card information. That information is stored by our payments provider, Stripe, and they are responsible for any compromise of your personal information.
Some of our video content may be for mature audiences. We have attempted to mark those videos for Mature viewing only. However, we cannot screen all videos for content that may be inappropriate for all viewers. You must be 18 years of age or older to subscribe to the Videothèque service. In certain jurisdictions, the age of majority may be older than 18, in which case, you must satisfy that age in order to become a member. While individuals under the age of 18 may utilize the service, they may do so only with the involvement, supervision, and approval of a parent or legal guardian.
We may update our Terms of Service from time to time in response to changing legal, regulatory or operational requirements. We will provide notice of any such changes (including when they will take effect) in accordance with law. Your continued use of the Videothèque service after any such updates take effect will constitute acceptance of those changes. If you do not accept any updates to this Privacy Statement, you may cancel your use of the Videothèque service. To see when this Privacy Statement was last updated, please see the date under “Last Updated” below.

3. How Does Videothèque use web beacons and other technologies?
Web beacons (also known as clear gifs or pixel tags) often work in conjunction with cookies. We and our Service Providers may use them for similar purposes as cookies, such as to understand and enhance the use of our service, improve site performance, monitor visitor traffic and actions on our site, and understand interactions with our marketing (including email and online ads on third party sites). Because web beacons often work in conjunction with cookies, in many cases, declining cookies will impair the effectiveness of web beacons.
We use other technologies that are similar to cookies, such as browser storage and plugins. Like cookies, some of these technologies may store small amounts of data on your device. We may use these and various other technologies for similar purposes as cookies, such as to enforce our Terms of Service, prevent fraud, and analyze the use of our service. There are a number of ways to exercise choice regarding these technologies. For example, many popular browsers provide the ability to clear browser storage, commonly in the settings or preferences area. See your browser’s help function or support area to learn more.
