HOW WE COLLECT AND USE YOUR INFORMATION
Haystack obtains information from and about you in a number of different ways, including:
Information Collected Automatically
As many other sites, we gather web server log file information automatically such as your IP address, browser type, referring/exit pages and screens, pages and screens visited on Haystack, operating system, device information and domain name of your Internet service provider. We use this information to administer our sites, understand how visitors navigate through our sites and to improve visitors' experience when using our sites. The information gathered by Haystack TV may also include information about usage patterns and preferences as the user navigates through Haystack TV’s sites. In addition, we may provide general Information about our customers, sales, site traffic patterns and related information to our affiliates or third parties.
Information You Provide to Us
You may choose to provide certain personally identifying information to us in order to receive the services defined in Haystack's Haystack'sTerms of Service. We will not rent or sell your personally identifying information to other companies or individuals, unless we have your consent.
The website contains links to other websites, including those to third party referral websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other websites. We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices of those other websites.
HOW WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
We value your privacy and take care to protect your Personal Information. However, we may share your Personal Information with third parties as described in this section.
Aggregated Personal Information that’s no longer personally identifiable. Haystack TV may anonymize your Personal Information so that you are not individually identified, and provide that information to our partners. We may also provide aggregate usage information to our partners, who may use such information to understand how often and in what ways people use our Services, so that they, too, can provide you with an optimal online experience. However, we never disclose aggregate information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally, as an individual.
Advertisting and Advertisting-Related Service Providers: We allow advertisers and/or merchant partners (“Advertisers”) to choose the demographic information of users who will see their advertisements and/or promotional offers and you agree that we may provide any of the information we have collected from you in non-personally identifiable form to an Advertiser, in order for that Advertiser to select the appropriate audience for those advertisements and/or offers. We, and these Advertisers, may use both first and third party cookies to inform, optimize and serve advertisements based on your use of the Service and any demographic information collected through your use of the Services. For example, we might use the fact you are located in a specific city to show you advertisements targeted to that city.
To do so these advertisers may place or recognize a unique “web beacon” on your browser or device (including through the use of pixel tags). These web beacons allow ad networks to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for us and for advertisers. The web beacons also enable ad networks to serve targeted advertisements to you when you visit other sites, or re-target you on our site. Because your web browser or device must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network’s servers, these companies can view, edit, or set their own web beacons, just as if you had requested a web page from their site. You may be able to opt-out of web beacon tracking by adjusting the settings on your browser or device. For instance many devices have a “Do Not Track” setting that you can be turned on.
Some of these advertisers, advertising technology companies, and service providers that perform advertising-related services for us and our business partners may be members of the Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI"), a cooperative of online marketing companies that offers a centralized tool for opting out of behavioral advertising delivered by each of its member companies. See http://www.networkadvertising.org for general information about the NAI and http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp for the opt-out page. You may also visit http://www.aboutads.info/consumers/ to learn about interest-based advertising and how to opt-out from ads served by some or all participating companies.
These opt-out mechanisms rely on cookies to remember your choices. If you delete your cookies or web beacons, use another computer or device, or change browsers, you will need to repeat this process. In addition, opting out of interest-based ads will not opt you out of all ads, but rather only those ads that are personalized to your interests.
Agents: We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Unless we tell you differently, our agents do not have any right to use the Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.
Protection of Haystack TV and Others: We reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information that we [reasonably] believe is necessary to comply with law or court order; enforce or apply our Terms of Service and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Haystack TV, our employees, our users, or others.Additional Choices for California Residents:
