The Information ABPL Collects:

Information You Provide: You may provide to ABPL certain information (often called "personally identifiable" information), such as your name, gmail address, postal mailing address, and telephone numbers. You may provide us with this information if you use certain services or products from the ABStream Service, or otherwise use the features and functionality of the ABStream Service.

Cookies and Automatically Collected Information: We may track your activities using cookies and similar technologies. We automatically collect certain types of data when you use our service. This automatically collected information may include your IP address or other device address or ID, web browser and/or device type, the web pages or sites that you visit just before or just after you use the ABStream Service, the pages or other content you view or otherwise interact with on the ABStream Service, and the dates and times that you visit, access, or use the ABStream Service. We also may use these technologies to collect information regarding your interaction with email messages, such as whether you opened, clicked on, or forwarded a message. This information is gathered from all users, and may be connected with other information about you.

If you connect or interact with us through a Third Party Account, we may receive information about you, including your Third Party Account profile information or your use of the Third Party Account, such as if you stream content through your account, as well as any other information you allow the Third Party Account to share with us. Please visit the privacy settings of your Third Party Account to learn about your options for limiting the information we receive from your Third Party Account.

The Way ABPL Uses Information:

ABPL uses the information that you provide or that we collect to operate, maintain, enhance, and provide all of the features and services found on the ABStream Service as well as to track user-generated content and Users to the extent necessary to comply as a service provider with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and other applicable laws.

We may use your email address or mobile number for administrative communications such as notifying you of major ABStream Service updates, for customer service purposes, and to send privacy or security related notices.

ABPL uses all of the information that we collect to understand the usage trends and preferences of our Users, to improve the way the ABStream Service works and looks, to create new features and functionality.

ABPL may use automatically collected information and cookies to: (a) remember your information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you access the ABStream Service; (b) provide customized third-party advertisements, content and information; (c) monitor and report on the effectiveness of third-party marketing campaigns; (d) monitor and report aggregate usage metrics such as total number of visitors and pages accessed; and (e) track your entries, submissions, and status in any promotions or other activities.


When ABPL Discloses Information:

ABPL does not share personally identifiable information about you with other organizations for their marketing or promotional uses without your prior express consent. Please be aware, however, that any personally identifiable information that you voluntarily choose to display on any publicly available portion of the ABStream Service, such as when you publish your public profile information, becomes publicly available and may be collected and used by others without restriction.

ABPL may disclose automatically collected and other aggregate non-personally-identifiable information (such as non-identifiable User usage data, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third parties to assist those parties in understanding the usage and demographic patterns for certain content, services, advertisements, promotions, or other functionality on the ABStream Service.

We may disclose some limited User information to affiliated companies or other businesses or persons to: provide web site hosting, maintenance, and security services; fulfill orders (including payments); conduct data analysis and create reports; offer certain functionality; and assist ABPL in improving the ABStream Service and creating new services features. We generally contractually require that these parties process such information in compliance with this Privacy Policy, authorize only a limited use of such information, and require these parties to use reasonable confidentiality measures.

ABPL may disclose User information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws (such as copyright or trademark law) or respond to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena, or warrant in the manner required by the requesting entity.

ABPL also reserves the right to disclose User information that we believe, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to take precautions against liability; enforce our Terms of Use; protect ABPL from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; to investigate and defend ourselves against third-party claims or allegations; to assist government enforcement agencies; to protect the security or integrity of the ABStream Service; or to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of ABPL, our Users, or others.

In the event that ABPL is acquired by or merged with a third-party entity, or enters into receivership or bankruptcy, we may transfer or assign the information that we have collected from Users as part of that merger, acquisition, sale, bankruptcy or other change of control.


Your Choices and Access to your Personal Information

If you decline to share your personally-identifiable information with ABPL, ABPL may not be able to provide to you some of the features and functionality found on the ABStream Service.

To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting you account access or making corrections to your information. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTAINING THE SECRECY OF YOUR UNIQUE PASSWORD AND ACCOUNT INFORMATION AT ALL TIMES.


Our Commitment to Data Security:

ABPL uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards intended to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. Please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot and do not guarantee that information about you will not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.


Our Commitment to Children's Privacy:

Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, ABPL does not knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information from persons under 13 years-of-age. If ABPL learns that personally-identifiable information of persons less than 13-years-of-age has been collected on or through the ABStream Service, then ABPL will take the appropriate steps to delete this information. If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 13 who has become a ABStream Service member, then please contact ABPL at support@abstream.tv to have that child's account terminated and information deleted.
