The methods that may be used on the Service to collect Usage Information include:
A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user's device, which may be session ID cookies or tracking cookies. Session cookies make it easier for you to navigate the Service and expire when you close your browser. Tracking cookies remain longer and help in understanding how you use the Service, and enhance your user experience. Cookies may remain on your device for an extended period of time. If you use your browser's method of blocking or removing cookies, some but not all types of cookies may be deleted and/or blocked and as a result some features and functionalities of the Service may not work. A Flash cookie (or locally shared object) is a data file which may be placed on a device via the Adobe Flash plug-in that may be built-in to or downloaded by you to your device. HTML5 cookies can be programmed through HTML5 local storage. Flash cookies and HTML 5 cookies are locally stored on your device other than in the browser and browser settings won't control them. To identify certain types of local shared objects on your device and adjust your settings, please visit: 5 www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager.html . The Service may associate some or all of these types of cookies with your devices.
Web Beacons ("Tracking Pixels")
Web beacons are small graphic images, also known as "internet tags" or "clear gifs," embedded in web pages and e-mail messages. Web beacons may be used, without limitation, to count the number of visitors to the Service, to monitor how users navigate the Service, and to count content views.
An embedded script is programming code designed to collect information about your interactions with the Service. It is temporarily downloaded onto your computer from CPLLC's web server, or from a third party with which CPLLC works, and is active only while you are connected to the Service, and deleted or deactivated thereafter.
GPS (global positioning systems) software, geo-filtering and other location-aware technologies locate (sometimes precisely) you for purposes such as verifying your location and delivering or restricting content based on your location.
Collection and analysis of information from your device, such as, without limitation, your operating system, plug-ins, system fonts, and other data, for purposes of identification and/or tracking.
Device Recognition Technologies
Technologies, including application of statistical probability to data sets, as well as linking a common unique identifier to different device use (e.g., Facebook ID), which attempt to recognize or make assumptions about users and devices (e.g., that a user of multiple devices is the same user or household).
In-App Tracking Methods
There are a variety of Tracking Technologies that may be included in mobile applications, and these are not browser-based like cookies and cannot be controlled by browser settings. Some use device identifier, or other identifiers such as "Ad IDs" to associate app user activity to a particular app and to track user activity across apps and/or devices.
Some information about your use of the Service and certain Third-Party Services may be collected using Tracking Technologies across time and services, and used by CPLLC and third parties for purposes such as to associate different devices you use, and deliver relevant ads and/or other content to you on the Service and certain Third-Party Services. See Section 11 regarding certain choices regarding these activities.
CPLLC is giving you notice of the Tracking Technologies and your choices regarding them explained in Section 11 so that your consent to encountering them is meaningfully informed.
Crackle may also obtain information about you from other sources, including Crackle's and Crackle's parent and related companies' affiliates ("Crackle Plus Companies"), Service Providers and Third-Party Services solely as allowed by law, and combine that with CPLLC-Collected PI. Such third-party-sourced, or non-Service-sourced, information (including Personal Information) will only be treated as CPLLC-Collected PI to the extent it is combined with CPLLC-Collected PI. CPLLC is not responsible or liable for the accuracy of the information provided by third parties or for third party policies or practices.Return to navigation
CPLLC may share non-Personal Information, and Personal Information that is not deemed CPLLC-Collected PI hereunder (provided that CPLLC is aware of no restrictions on CPLLC's use, if any), with third parties or Crackle Plus Companies and their affiliates for any purpose. CPLLC's sharing of CPLLC-Collected PI is, however, subject to the following:
Additionally, the Service may offer you the option to send a communication to a friend. If so, CPLLC relies on you to only send to people that have given you permission to do so. The friend's Personal Information you provide (e.g., name, e-mail address) will be used to facilitate the communication, but not used by CPLLC for any other marketing purpose unless CPLLC obtains consent from that person. Your contact information and message may be included in the communication.Return to navigation
The Service may include hyperlinks to, or include on or in connection with, the Service (e.g., apps and plug-ins), websites, locations, platforms, applications or services operated by third parties ("Third-Party Service(s)". These Third-Party Services may use their own cookies, web beacons, and other Tracking Technology to independently collect information about you and may solicit Personal Information from you.
Certain functionalities on the Service permit interactions that you initiate between the Service and certain Third-Party Services, such as third-party social networks ("Social Features"). Examples of Social Features include: enabling you to send content such as contacts and photos between the Service and a Third-Party Service; "liking" or "sharing" CPLLC's content; logging in to the Service using your Third-Party Service account (e.g., using Facebook Connect to sign-in to the Service); and to otherwise connect the Service to a Third-Party Service (e.g., to pull or push information to or from the Service). If you use Social Features, and potentially other Third Party Services, information you post or provide access to may be publicly displayed on the Service (see Section 5) or by the Third-Party Service that you use. Similarly, if you post information on a Third-Party Service that references the Service (e.g., by using a hashtag associated with Crackle Plus Companies in a tweet or status update), your post may be used on or in connection with the Service or otherwise by Crackle Plus Companies. Also, both CPLLC and the third party may have access to certain information about you and your use of the Service and any Third-Party Service.
CPLLC may engage and work with Service Providers and other third parties to serve advertisements on the Service and/or on Third-Party Services. Some of these ads may be tailored to your interest based on your browsing of the Service and elsewhere on the internet, sometimes referred to as "interest-based advertising" and "online behavioral advertising" ("Interest-based Advertising"), which may include sending you an ad on a Third-Party Service after you have left the Service (i.e., "retargeting").
CPLLC takes reasonable measures to protect CPLLC-Collected PI (excluding UGC) from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Nevertheless, transmission via the internet and online digital storage are not completely secure and CPLLC cannot guarantee the security of your information collected through the Service.
CPLLC does not intend to collect personal information as defined by the U.S. Children's Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") ("Children's Personal Information") in a manner that is not permitted by COPPA, and for any children's or mixed-use portions of the Service (if any) CPLLC will comply with COPPA. If you are a parent or guardian and believe CPLLC has collected Children's Personal Information in a manner not permitted by COPPA, please contact CPLLC here and CPLLC will remove such data to the extent required by COPPA.
Any California residents under the age of eighteen (18) who have registered to use the Service, and who have posted content or information on the Service, can request removal by contacting CPLLC here, detailing where the content or information is posted and attesting that you posted it. CPLLC will then make reasonable good faith efforts to remove the post from prospective public view or anonymize it so the minor cannot be individually identified to the extent required by applicable law. This removal process cannot ensure complete or comprehensive removal. For instance, third-parties may have republished or archived content by search engines and others that CPLLC does not control.Return to navigation
CPLLC may provide web pages or other mechanisms allowing you to delete, correct, or update some of the CPLLC-Collected PI, and potentially certain other information about you (e.g., profile and account information). CPLLC will make good faith efforts to make requested changes in CPLLC's then-active databases as soon as practicable, but it is not always possible to completely change, remove or delete all of your information or public postings from CPLLC's databases (California minors see Section 9) and residual and/or cached data may remain archived thereafter. Further, we reserve the right to retain data (a) as required by applicable law; and (b) for so long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the data is retained except to the extent prohibited by applicable law.Return to navigation
Regular cookies may generally be disabled or removed by tools available as part of most commercial browsers, and in some instances blocked in the future by selecting certain settings. Browsers offer different functionalities and options so you may need to set them separately. Also, tools from commercial browsers may not be effective with regard to Flash cookies (also known as locally shared objects), HTML5 cookies, or other Tracking Technologies. For information on disabling Flash cookies, go to Adobe's website http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/disable-third-party-local-shared.html. Please be aware that if you disable or remove these technologies, some parts of the Service may not work and that when you revisit the Service your ability to limit browser-based Tracking Technologies is subject to your browser settings and limitations.
App-related Tracking Technologies in connection with non-browser usage (e.g., most functionality of a mobile app) can only be disabled by uninstalling the app. To uninstall an app, follow the instructions from your operating system or device manufacturer.
Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a "Do Not Track" signal to online services you visit. Note, however, there is no consensus among industry participants as to what "Do Not Track" means in this context. Like many online services, CPLLC currently does not alter CPLLC's practices when CPLLC receives a "Do Not Track" signal from a visitor's browser. To find out more about "Do Not Track," you can visit https://www.allaboutdnt.com, but CPLLC is not responsible for the completeness or accuracy of this third party information. Some third parties, however, may offer you choices regarding their Tracking Technologies. CPLLC is not responsible for the completeness or accuracy of third party choice notices or choice mechanisms. For specific information on some of the choice options offered by third party analytics and advertising providers, see the next section.
You may choose whether to receive some Interest-based Advertising by submitting opt-outs. Some of the advertisers and Service Providers that perform advertising-related services for us and our partners may participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance's ("DAA") Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. To learn more about how you can exercise certain choices regarding Interest-based Advertising, visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ , and http://www.aboutads.info/appchoices for information on the DAA's opt-out program for mobile apps. Some of these companies may also be members of the Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI"). To learn more about the NAI and your opt-out options for their members, see http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. Please be aware that, even if you are able to opt out of certain kinds of Interest-based Advertising, you may continue to receive other types of ads. Opting out only means that those selected members should no longer deliver certain Interest-based Advertising to you, but does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content and/or ads (e.g., from other ad networks). Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you visit these opt-out webpages, or you subsequently erase your cookies, use of a different device or web browsers or use a non-browser-based method of access (e.g., mobile app), your NAI / DAA browser-based opt-out may not, or may no longer, be effective. CPLLC supports the ad industry's 2009 Self-regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising (https://www.iab.net/media/file/ven-principles-07-01-09.pdf). CPLLC is not responsible for effectiveness of, or compliance with, any third-parties' opt-out options or programs or the accuracy of their statements regarding their programs.
With respect to CPLLC's mobile apps ("apps"), you can stop all collection of data generated by use of the app by uninstalling the app. Also, you may be able to exercise specific privacy choices, such as enabling or disabling certain location-based services, by adjusting the permissions in your mobile device. See also the prior section regarding the DAA's mobile Interest-based Advertising choices.
You can opt out of receiving certain promotional communications (emails or text messaging) from CPLLC at any time by (i) for promotional e-mails, following the instructions provided in emails to click on the unsubscribe link, or if available by changing your communication preferences by logging onto your account; and (ii) for text messages, following the instructions provided in text messages from CPLLC to text the word, affect subsequent subscriptions. If you opt-out of only certain communications, other subscription communications may continue. Even if you opt-out of receiving promotional communications, CPLLC may, subject to applicable law, continue to send you non-promotional communications, such as those about your account, transactions, servicing, or CPLLC's ongoing business relations.
CPLLC only knowingly shares personal information (as defined by California's "Shine the Light" law), with non-affiliated third parties (i.e., parties other than our affiliated Crackle Plus Companies) for their own direct marketing purposes if you specifically opt-in, or are offered the opportunity to opt-out and elect not to opt-out, to such sharing at the time you provide personal information or choose to participate in a feature on the Service. If you do not opt-in or if you opt-out at that time, CPLLC will not knowingly share the personal information that was collected in connection therewith with such identified non-affiliated third party(ies) for its/their own direct marketing purposes, but may continue to seek your consent to sharing with the same or other non-affiliated third parties for their own direct marketing purposes from time-to-time. Each consent notice and opportunity will be treated separately so it is possible that you may consent to some sharing but not to others.
In addition, California residents may request information about CPLLC's compliance with the Shine the Light law and the Crackle Plus Companies with which CPLLC may have shared personal information for their direct marketing purposes by contacting CPLLC here or by sending a letter to Crackle Plus, LLC at PO Box 700, Cos Cob, CT 06807 (Attention: Privacy Program, Information Security). Requests must include "California Privacy Rights Request" in the first line of the description and include your name, street address, city, state, and ZIP code.
