Privacy Policy
Policy Overview

This Privacy Policy pertains to the use of the SmartphoneTV.com web site at http://www.SmartphoneTV.com. Safeguarding your privacy is serious business. That's why SmartphoneTV.com's privacy policy is simple: : SmartphoneTV.com will not disclose, sell or rent any personally identifiable information without the user's proper consent except as provided in this statement. The SmartphoneTV.com user is given final word on whether or not to share such information with SmartphoneTV.com. Please use discretion, because SmartphoneTV.com cannot be held accountable for the use, collection or distribution of personal information freely provided by members with any of our tools, including profiles, message boards, chats and notes. Be aware that information provided spontaneously by the user in such ways is not under the control of SmartphoneTV.com and might be observed, collected or utilized by third-party agencies and organizations. If a member were to post a phone number in their profile (as an example) we cannot be held accountable for the consequences. For questions or concerns about SmartphoneTV.com's information practices, contact the SmartphoneTV.com Policy Manager as provided at the end of this policy.

Age Policy

SmartphoneTV.com is intended for users age 13 or older. SmartphoneTV.com's registration process is intentionally designed for such an audience and we will not knowingly collect any information from children under 13. Because of this age limit, this privacy policy makes no provision for children's use of SmartphoneTV.com. If you are a parent or become aware of a child registered under the age of 13 please notify SmartphoneTV.com's Policy Manager as provided at the end of this policy.

Note to Parents

If your child is under 13 and has become a SmartphoneTV.com member using a false age, please notify the Policy Manager who will immediately close the account and nullify all personally identifiable information provided by them. If your child is under the age of 18 and you would like to know more about our site, information practices, stored information on your child, or how to close your child's account, contact SmartphoneTV.com's Policy Manager.

Information Retention

To preserve the integrity of website databases SmartphoneTV.com's procedure is to retain information submitted by members for an indefinite length of time. By submitting information to SmartphoneTV.com you are consenting to store that information indefinitely. If required by law, such as the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA,) SmartphoneTV.com will scramble and/or encrypt that information to make it unrecognizable. SmartphoneTV.com will also respond to written member requests to scramble account information. If you wish to make such a request, which will require you to verify your identity, contact the SmartphoneTV.com Policy Manager.

Information Collection and Use

SmartphoneTV.com will only require personally identifiable information at the time of registration. This might include email address, gender, birth date, zip or postal code and the country of residence. This information is used to identify you as a unique user within SmartphoneTV.com and will not be shared with any other party without your consent and notification. Please be aware that your age, birth date and country will be visible in your profile. Information about members that is not personally identifiable may be used anonymously for purposes of advertising, demographic collection, market research data, anonymous reporting and to better tailor SmartphoneTV.com's content to the user's needs. This type of information will not include any data that identifies members as an individual, such as email address, home address or telephone number. If the user provides such information as part of an optional promotion, contest, survey or similar program they are subject to the separate privacy rules and expectations of each individual program. In addition to on-site advertising, SmartphoneTV.com may advertise products, companies and events that we think might interest you through the email address you provide if you choose to receive such solicitations. The user is always able to ask SmartphoneTV.com not to contact them with such information again. The user will not be included in promotions, contests, submission opportunities, solicitations or other programs unless they opt-in. If you receive unsolicited email from a SmartphoneTV.com domain, please contact SmartphoneTV.com's Policy Manager, as SmartphoneTV.com does not wish to provide users with unwanted information. Please note that SmartphoneTV.com may be required to share information with relevant authorities in order to investigate, prevent or enforce suspected or confirmed illegal activities, including with no limitation: fraud, threat or potential threat to the physical safety of any person, violation of SmartphoneTV.com's Terms of Service and/or User Agreement or as otherwise permitted or required by law. SmartphoneTV.com may also be required to disclose such information in order to comply with subpoenas, warrants, court orders or legal process or to establish or exercise SmartphoneTV.com's legal rights or defend against legal claims.
