Eco Company Privacy Policy

Updated as of June 7, 2013

The Eco Company Privacy Policy describes how Eco Company treats personal information including information provided when you sign up on Eco-Company.TV.

Personal Information

Browsing Eco Company: You can watch videos on Eco-Company.TV without having an Eco Company account. You also can contact us through the Eco Company Contact Us page or by emailing us directly without having to register for an account.

Your Eco Company Account: For some activities on Eco-Company.TV, like uploading videos, you need to create an Eco Company account. We ask for some personal information when you create an account, including your email address and a password, which is used to protect your account from unauthorized access. We ask for your age. You must be 13 or older to create an account. Eco Company does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under age 13 and we will not knowingly permit any ongoing communication from a child who is under the age of 13. In addition, because this is an educational website designed to be a vehicle for teens to express themselves about sustainable or “green” issues we want to know if a video has been submitted by an adult. We also ask for your city because we want to know where our Eco Company contributors are from, and your phone number in order to contact you if your video is selected to be in the national TV show. We may need to ask you for a higher quality videotape copy of your submission. Absolutely none of the information collected will ever be shared with or distributed to a third party.

Content Uploaded to Site. Any personal information you put into your video description or video content that you voluntarily disclose online (e.g., comments about your videos including names & locations) that is displayed with your video on a public page may be collected and used by others.

Uses

If you submit personal information to Eco-Company.TV, we may use that information to operate, maintain, and improve the features and functionality of Eco-Company.TV, and to process any flagging activity or other communication you send to us.

We do not use your email address or other personal information to send commercial or marketing messages without your consent. We may use your email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of interest in using your video on the Eco Company TV show or for customer service purposes).

We use cookies, web beacons, and log file information to: (a) store information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit Eco-Company.TV; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information; (c) monitor the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns; (d) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed; and (e) track your entries, submissions, and status in promotions, sweepstakes, and contests.

Any videos that you submit to Eco-Company.TV may be redistributed through the internet and other media channels, and may be viewed by other Eco-Company.TV users or the general public.
