You may share personal information when using the ClipThat Services. One example is when you provide information about yourself as part of the ClipThat account creation process. Another is when you take certain actions on the ClipThat Services that are public or intended to be public in nature, such as when you share content, post profile information or follow a user. Given the social nature of some of the ClipThat Services, that information may be collected, used, or disclosed by others who are part of that social interaction. In addition, some features of the ClipThat Services are designed to provide others with information about user activity, such as identifying the user who created a particular Clip. We encourage you to be mindful of this when considering your activity on the ClipThat Services.

ClipThat may periodically send promotional materials or notifications to you related to the ClipThat Services.

In certain cases, we have a legal obligation to collect and process your personal information (such as our obligation to share data with tax authorities).
We may also ask for your consent to process your personal information for a specific purpose that we communicate to you. When you consent to our processing your personal information for a specified purpose, you may withdraw your consent at any time and we will stop the processing of your data for that purpose.
ClipThat will rely on legal grounds to process your personal information to the extent permitted by applicable law, which may include, without limitation: to honor contractual commitments, to take steps in anticipation of entering into contract, to fulfill legal obligations, your consent, and ClipThat’s legitimate interests.
When ClipThat Discloses Personal Information, we share such information as described below:
ClipThat may disclose user information if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to comply with U.S. state and federal laws or other applicable laws around the world (for example, in the country of your residence), or respond to a court order, judicial or other government request, subpoena, or warrant in the manner legally required.
ClipThat also reserves the right to disclose information that we believe, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to protect ClipThat from potential liability or from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; investigate and defend ourselves against third-party claims, or allegations; protect the security or integrity of the ClipThat Services; or protect the rights, property, or safety of ClipThat, our users, or others.
Account Closure & Deletion
Third-Party Services and Websites
If you connect to a third-party service (such as Xbox, Twitter, or another third-party application) through the ClipThat Services or otherwise link your ClipThat account with a third-party service, you are requesting and authorizing us to share or grant access to information on your behalf (such as your username, the fact that your connection originated from the ClipThat Services, and other relevant usage and diagnostic information) with such third party. We may also send information about the content you watch or your activities on the ClipThat Services to such third parties. For example, we may make information available to app developers, game developers, and game publishers to facilitate purchases and awards of digital goods, such as games and in-game items.
Advertisers and Analytics Providers
ClipThat may use third-party Web analytics services in connection with the ClipThat Services. These service providers use a variety of tracking technologies such as cookies to analyze how users use the ClipThat Services. The information collected (described above in “Automatically Collected Information”) may be shared with or collected directly by these services and processed to evaluate your use of the ClipThat Services.
ClipThat may also work with third-party ad networks, advertisers, and advertising analytics providers to target (and measure the performance of) ads to you both on and off the ClipThat Services. We may share with these third parties (or they may directly collect) data such as cookie and mobile ad identifiers in order to engage in advertising activity (including to understand how you respond to advertisements and to serve relevant ads). ClipThat also works with third parties to serve ads to you off ClipThat’s Services. When we do so, we may share information such as your email address or resettable device identifier for that advertising partner to “match” to other information that may have about you.
Do Not Track
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. DNT is a way for users to inform websites and services that they do not want certain information about their webpage visits collected over time and across websites or online services. We are committed to providing you with meaningful choices about the information collected on our website for third-party purposes, and that is why we provide the Network Advertising Initiative, Your Online Choices and the Digital Advertising Alliance opt-out links above. However, ClipThat does not recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals.
ClipThat uses a variety of managerial, technical, and physical measures to protect the integrity and security of your information. These measures may vary based on the sensitivity of your information. However, no security precautions or systems can be completely secure. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to ClipThat, and you do so at your own risk. We cannot guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
Retention of Your Information
IF YOU ARE UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE, THEN PLEASE DO NOT USE OR ACCESS THE CLIPTHAT SERVICES AT ANY TIME OR IN ANY MANNER.
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, ClipThat does not knowingly collect or maintain personal information (as defined by the United States Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act) from persons under 13 years-of-age. If ClipThat learns that personal information of persons under 13 has been collected on or through the ClipThat Services, ClipThat will take appropriate steps to delete this information.
If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 13 who has become a ClipThat Services member, then please contact ClipThat to have that child’s account terminated and personal information deleted.
For residents of the EEA, where the processing of personal information is based on consent, ClipThat will not knowingly engage in that processing for users under the age of consent established by applicable data protection law. If we learn that we are engaged in that processing with such users, we will halt such processing and will take reasonable measures to promptly remove applicable information from our records.
Merger or Sale
In the event that ClipThat, or some or all assets related to the ClipThat Services are acquired by or merged with a third-party entity or in connection with a contemplated change of ownership transaction, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information that we have collected from users as part of that merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control event, including in the course of diligence.
