Planetapl.tv values the privacy of users, subscribers, publishers, members, and others who visit and use the Planetapl.tv Services (collectively or individually, “you” or “users”) and wants you to be familiar with how we collect, use, and disclose personal information from and about you. This notice describes our privacy policy. By visiting www.planetpl.tv, setting up your account, or using the Planetapl.tv Services, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice, to the extent permitted by law.

You may share personal information when using the Planetapl.tv Services. One example is when you provide information about yourself as part of the Planetapl.tv account creation process.

Storage and access to cookies that are set in connection with the Planetapl.tv Services are governed by the Planetapl.tv Cookie Policy ( “Cookie Policy”).

By viewing any Content or otherwise using the Planetapl.tv Services, whether you are a subscriber, other registered user, or a visitor who has not subscribed to or registered for the Planetapl.tv Services, you consent to the collection and use of information from or about you as explained in this Privacy Policy. If you do not consent to the collection and use of information from or about you in accordance with this Privacy Policy, then you may not use the Planetapl.tv Services.

Please note that the website addresses (i.e. URLs) included within this Privacy Policy may not function as hyperlinks on all the Access Points. To view this Privacy Policy with clickable hyperlinks, please visit the Planetapl.tv Website on your computer.

2. Information We Collect

Planetapl.tv may collect the following information from or about you:

Information You Provide To Us. We collect information you provide to us. For instance, when you register to use the Planetapl.tv Services, we may collect your name, email address, birth date, gender, credit card information, billing address, ZIP code, and other information. In addition, Planetapl.tv may collect information you provide to us when you respond to surveys, set your preferences, contact Planetapl.tv through customer service or by other means, or participate in promotions that Planetapl.tv may offer from time to time.

Automatically Collected Information. We collect information when you use the Planetapl.tv Services or view Planetapl.tv advertising outside of the Planetapl.tv Services. Examples of this information may include your Internet Protocol address (“IP address”), device, browser and software characteristics (such as type and operating system), location (which may include precise location data), activity on the Planetapl.tv Services including information about the videos you view on Planetapl.tv (e.g., show titles and episode names), page views, ad data, referral URLs, network state, device identifiers or other unique identifiers such as advertising identifiers (e.g. “ad-ID” or “IDFA”) and identifiers associated with browser cookies (see our description of “Cookies and Local Storage” below), and carrier information.

Data Collected Through Cookies and Similar Technologies. Like many online services, we use various technologies to collect usage data and store preferences. These technologies are discussed below.

• Cookies and Local Storage. One technology we use is called a cookie. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your computer’s hard disk. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with the Planetapl.tv Services or Planetapl.tv advertising published outside of the Planetapl.tv Services, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on the Planetapl.tv Services, and to customize Content and advertising. These uses allow us to improve the Planetapl.tv Services. We may create a unique device or user ID for you and store it in a cookie so we can customize your experience based on your preferences.

We may collect information through other kinds of local storage (also referred to as “Flash cookies”) and HTML5 local storage, including in connection with features such as volume/mute settings for the Video Player. Because these technologies are similar to browser cookies, they are sometimes called “browser cookies,” even though they may be stored in different parts of your computer.

Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. For information about disabling cookies or deleting information contained in Flash cookies, please visit Adobe.com Manage, disable Local Shared Objects. Please note that disabling cookies or deleting information contained in cookies or Flash cookies may interfere with the performance and features of the Planetapl.tv Services, including the Video Player. For example, we may not be able to store your preferences or login information or customize the Content and advertising to your viewing habits.

• Web Beacons or Pixels. In addition to cookies, we may use other technologies such as web beacons or pixel tags, which can be embedded in web pages, videos, or emails, to collect certain types of information from your browser or device, check whether you have viewed a particular web page, ad, or email message, and determine, among other things, the time and date on which you viewed the Content, the IP address of your computer, and the URL of the web page from which the Content was viewed.

• Mobile Device Identifiers and Software Development Kits (“SDKs”). We may use or work with third parties including our business partners and service providers who use mobile SDKs to collect information, such as advertising identifiers (e.g., “ad-ID” or “IDFA”) and information related to how mobile devices interact with the Planetapl.tv Services. An SDK is computer code that app developers can include in their apps to enable ads to be shown, data to be collected and related services and functionality to be implemented. A mobile SDK is in effect the mobile app version of a pixel tag or beacon. We may use this technology, for instance, to analyze how you interact with Content and advertisements and to enable analytics or other features through mobile devices.

The use of these various technologies in connection with advertising on the Planetapl.tv Services is explained further below. To learn about opting out of interest-based or online behavioral advertising, please see the information we have provided in Section 7 (“Your Choices, Including Opt-Out Options”).

Account and Profile Data from Third-Party Services. If you choose to log-in, access or otherwise connect to the Planetapl.tv Services, or contact Planetapl.tv, through a third-party service (such as Facebook), we may, for example, collect your user ID and user name associated with that service, as well as any information you make public using that service. We may also collect information you have authorized the service to share with us (such as your user ID, billing information, public profile information, email address, birthday, friends list, pages you have “liked” and other account and profile data).

Third-Party Data. We may collect information about you from other sources, such as data aggregators, public databases, and our business partners. Examples of this may include information (whether identified, de-identified or anonymous, and whether collected online or offline) about your interests, demographic data, purchasing behavior, and your activities online (such as websites visited and advertisements viewed).

We may combine the information we collect from or about you and use it in the manner described in this Privacy Policy or as otherwise permitted by law.

4. Sharing Information with Third Parties

We disclose such information to service providers working on our behalf, such as, to: provide website hosting, maintenance, and security services; fulfil orders; conduct data analysis and create reports; offer certain functionality; or assist Planetapl.tv in improving the Planetapl.tv Services and creating new services and features. We require that these parties process such information in compliance with this Privacy Notice, we authorize them to use the information only for the purposes for which it is provided to them, and we require them to use reasonable confidentiality measures.

Your Browsers and Devices. We may work with service providers who use information collected from or about you to help us identify the browsers and devices you use for various purposes, including for targeted advertising, analytics, attribution, and measurement purposes. For example, these service providers (along with Planetapl.tv) may use your activity on one browser or device to serve you with more tailored advertising on another browser or device.

Audience Measurement Providers. Our business partners, such as content programmers, as well as our advertisers, seek to measure the performance of their creative material across many platforms, including the Planetapl.tv Services.

Third Parties When Required By Law or When Necessary to Protect Your or Our Rights. In some instances, we may disclose information from or about you without providing you a choice.

Third Parties in Connection with Certain Transactions. If we sell all or part of our business, make a transfer of assets, or otherwise might be involved in a change of control transaction, or in the event of bankruptcy, we may transfer information from or about you to one or more third parties as part of the transaction, including the due diligence process.

Parties with Your Consent or When You Otherwise Choose to Share. In addition to the sharing described in this Privacy Policy, we may share any information from or about you with any party when we have your consent or when you otherwise choose to share such information, including as set forth below in Section 5 (“Sharing What You Watch”). Also, certain functions within the Planetapl.tv Services may give you the option to share information about your activities on the Planetapl.tv Services, for example, by email, text message, social networking, or other sharing function.

This information may relate to your use of the Planetapl.tv Services, websites you visited, advertisements you viewed, and your other activities online. Advertising that is based on information collected from or about you across websites, applications and other platforms over time is known as interest-based or online behavioral advertising.

Viewing Ads. When you view an advertisement, whether or not you click on it, or when you interact with an advertisement, the advertiser, advertising technology companies, and service providers that perform advertising-related services for us and our business partners may collect some information from or about you.

Please be aware that Planetapl.tv does not notify you when you have chosen to click through to another website or property when using the Planetapl.tv Services. We recommend that you familiarize yourself with the privacy policies of such websites or properties to determine how they use or share any information they separately collect from you.

Opt-Out Options for Third-Party Online Behavioral or Interest-Based Advertising on Websites (including Mobile Websites).
• Some of the third parties that collect information from or about you on the Planetapl.tv Services in order to provide more relevant advertising to you on websites participate in the DAA Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. This program offers a centralized location where users can make choices about the use of their information for online behavioral advertising.

If you would like to obtain more information about interest-based advertising and the NAI and make choices about their members’ use of information from or about you on websites, please visit the NAI’s opt-out of interest-based advertising page.

9. Security and Account Access

Planetapl.tv 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 Planetapl.tv, 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.

We use a variety of physical, technical, and administrative measures to safeguard information in our possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure, and modification. For example, we take steps to limit access to sensitive information from or about you to those Planetapl.tv employees, agents, and contractors who have a legitimate business reason to access such information. We also use measures like encryption and hashing to help protect sensitive information when in transmission.

Despite these efforts, please note that there is always a possibility that a breach in data transmission or storage may occur. We want you to feel confident in our security when using the Planetapl.tv Services, but we cannot guarantee the security of any information from or about you 100% of the time. Please refer to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s website for information on how to protect yourself from identity theft.

Please note that if you allow others to use your account, they may be able to view information about your account, including information about the videos you view and your email address.

10. Children

Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, Planetapl.tv does not knowingly collect or maintain personal information from persons under 13 years-of-age. If Planetapl.tv learns that personal information of persons under 13 has been collected on or through the Planetapl.tv Services, Planetapl.tv 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 Planetapl.tv Services member, then please contact Planetapl.tv at info@planetapl.tv to have that child’s account terminated and personal information deleted.

For residents of the EEA, where processing of personal information is based on consent, Planetapl.tv 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.

In addition, you may launch a Third-Party Access Point using various devices such as mobile devices and Living Room Devices. The Planetapl.tv Services also may contain links to third-party websites or applications. None of these Third-Party Access Points, devices, websites or applications are operated by us, even if they contain our name or logo, and we are not responsible for the privacy practices of their operators. Accordingly, we recommend that you review their privacy policies.
