  3. Scope Of This Policy

  5. The Information That We Collect
    1. Information You Provide To Us

      Personal Information And Demographic Information

      We may ask you to provide us with certain information when you interact with the TodGmbH® Services. This information can generally be grouped into two main categories - Personal Information and Demographic Information.

      Information that identifies you as a particular individual is referred to in this Policy as " Personal Information ." This would include your full name, e-mail address, telephone number and street address. Please note that the term Personal Information does NOT include TodGmbH® IDs or Device Identifiers (as such terms are defined below), except to the extent that they are combined with other forms of Personal Information that we have collected directly from you on the TodGmbH® Services. The term " Demographic Information " refers to information about groups or particular types of individuals that access the TodGmbH® Services. Demographic Information does not directly identify you as a specific individual, and would include information such as your age, gender, marital status, income level, and zip code.

      We collect Personal Information and Demographic Information through the TodGmbH® Services when you choose to provide us with such information, for example, when you register to become a Member. We may also collect Personal Information and/or Demographic Information through a variety of other methods, including when you elect to contact us, submit Profile Content or otherwise interact with the TodGmbH® Services.

      • Registration Information

        Certain features of the TodGmbH® Services are only accessible by Members who have registered with TodGmbH® and created a TodGmbH® account (" Account "). In order to do so, you must first complete a registration form that requests certain basic registration information from you, such as your full name, e-mail address, date of birth, and gender (collectively, " Registration Information "). Please note that the Registration Information requested by TodGmbH® may include both Personal Information and Demographic Information.

      • Profile Content

        When you sign up as a Member, you are required to create one or more TodGmbH® profiles that are associated with your Account (each, a " Profile "). TodGmbH® may allow you to populate your Profile with certain content chosen by you, and we may also associate additional content with your Profile based on your interactions with the TodGmbH® Services, such as your video viewing and other related activities (collectively, " Profile Content "). Any Profile Content that TodGmbH® allows you to submit must comply with the restrictions set forth in our Terms at all times. Please note that your Profile Content may contain Registration Information.

        The information in your Profile Content is grouped into two main categories – Restricted Information.

      " Restricted Information " refers to those portions of the Profile Content and Activity Notifications associated with your Profile to which you may elect to restrict access by changing the Profile settings that TodGmbH® may make available to you from time-to-time here (" Profile Settings ") or by changing other functionality specific settings on the TodGmbH® Services. These Profile Settings may permit you to create a " Restricted Profile " by choosing to enable certain (but not absolute) limitations on the availability of certain aspects of your Profile that are not Public Information, certain associated Profile Content, and some of the notifications that TodGmbH® produces regarding your activities (" Activity Notifications "). Further, unless otherwise provided by TodGmbH®, all of your Profile Content and Activity Notifications will still be available to the Profiles that you allow to connect to you. Please note you are currently unable to restrict access to Public Information, which can always be viewed, accessed, and used by anyone with access to the TodGmbH® Services, including via third party search engines.

      "Public Information" refers to the portion of your Profile Content that can always be viewed, accessed, and used by anyone with access to the TodGmbH® Services ( e.g. , TodGmbH®, other Users, search engines, advertisers, application developers, other third parties, etc.). Any Profile Content that does not otherwise constitute Restricted Information is considered Public Information for the purposes of this Policy. At a minimum, Public Information includes your:

      • Full Name
      • Username
      • Profile URL
      • About Me (the portion of your Profile that provides a place to describe yourself)
      • Profile Photo
      • Profile Cover
      • Stated Location
      • Gender
      • Age
      • TodGmbH® IDs

      Public Information also includes:

      • Any additional Profile Content associated with a " Public Profile ," which refers to any Profile for which a User has set the Profile's visibility status to "Public" in his or her Profile Settings, but subject to Mix privacy settings (as further defined);
      • Activity Notifications published on the TodGmbH® Services from Public Profiles;
      • Affinity Information ( e.g. the relative magnitude of your affinity for Profiles and content); and
      • The number of your connections in and connections out.

      You should be aware that the default setting for Profiles of all Members is set to public ( i.e Public Profiles). You can and should change the visibility status of your Profile from a Public Profile to a Restricted Profile at any time to fit your needs, by visiting Profile Settings . Please note, however, that Activity Notifications that were created during the time that your Profile was a Public Profile shall remain public after any change to a Restricted Profile.

      Although access to Restricted Information will be limited as set forth above, it is important to note that if you share such information with others, they may copy that information or share it with others, including with the public. TodGmbH® is not responsible for the actions of those with whom you choose to share your Restricted Information. For example, you may choose to use the TodGmbH® Services to access content pages, which are those pages that, for example, represent an individual item of content such as video or audio, or a collection of content such as pictures. When you decide to post content, comments, or other materials to another Member's Profile, a Content Page, or elsewhere on the TodGmbH® Services, that information will be disclosed, and available to third parties consistent with the visibility settings for the relevant Profile or content, even if those settings are inconsistent with your own Profile Settings . Content Pages are generally publicly available, which means that posts that you make on those pages will likely be available to anyone. In addition, your video viewing or audio selections may be part of your Profile Content as well as any content pages that you view. Similarly, if you connect to a Public Profile, the fact that you have connected to that Public Profile will be available to anybody with access to the TodGmbH® Services.

      The Profile Settings that TodGmbH® makes available to Members, as well as their functionality, may change as the TodGmbH® Services continue to evolve. We will provide reasonable advance notice of the changes in the Profile Settings section, or otherwise. Delays and errors in effecting Profile Setting preferences may occur and we do not represent that they will be immediate, complete, error-free, current, reliable or accurate. If you experience any problems with your Profile Settings, or have any questions or concerns regarding your Profile Settings, or you are interested in obtaining additional information regarding the settings options that may be available to you, please contact us via Email .

      The TodGmbH® Services may allow messaging between Members.

      Account ID And Profile ID

      When you create an Account, TodGmbH® assigns an " Account ID " to identify and organize information relating to your Account and a " Profile ID " for each Profile associated with an Account (collectively, your " TodGmbH® IDs "). The Profile ID (your username or space name or number) may allow TodGmbH® to provide a unique internet URL for your Profile (" Profile URL "). As described above, TodGmbH® IDs and/or Profile URLs constitute Public Information and may therefore be viewed, accessed, and/or used by anyone with access to the TodGmbH® Services. You cannot restrict access to Public Information through your Profile Settings.

    2. Information We Collect Or Store As You Access And Use The TodGmbH® Services

      In addition to the information that you choose to submit to us via the TodGmbH® Services, we and our third-party service providers may also collect certain information about you automatically, including through the use of various technologies that passively store or collect certain information whenever you interact with the TodGmbH® Services. This may include information about the nature of a User's interactions with the TodGmbH® Services, such as his or her media consumption activities (" Usage Information "). Usage Information may be stored or accessed using a variety of technologies including cookies, web beacons, embedded scripts, entity tags and other similar technologies whether now or later devised (collectively " Web Technologies "), some of which may be downloaded to the computer or other Device. The Usage Information that we collect may be non identifying or it may be associated with you, your Account, and your Profile(s). In the event we collect certain information about your interaction with the TodGmbH® Services while you are a Visitor, TodGmbH® may associate that information with your Account if you subsequently become a Member.

To make your content consumption experience more social and fun, to improve services, to perform analytics, to compare your usage to other Users, to rank your linkages with certain content or Users, and to better make suggestions about other content, we may use any of the information you provide and the information we collect about you and we may share the content of the media that you access on or through the TodGmbH® Services with other Users. We may also share your media access through TodGmbH® Services (including video viewing and audio content access) as an activity notification by activity notification by, for example, sharing your Profile content (including your full name, username and Profile Picture) on the content page where such video or audio resides. Additionally, your activity may be indicated on your own Profile (in your activity stream or elsewhere) and on your connections' Profile, in each case, both on the TodGmbH® Website, and on any other TodGmbH® Services. Other examples of activities that may generate Activity Notifications include, but are not limited to: (1) posting status updates; (2) commenting on a post; (3) sharing content or posting on the TodGmbH® Services; (4) sharing content or posting to a Third-Party Linked Service; (5) connecting to a Profile or content ( e.g. , a photo, photo album, video, song, etc.); (6) being tagged; (7) commenting on a photo album or similar media; (8) adding a photo to a photo album; (9) playing a song or watching a video; (10) updating a Profile; and (11) adding a cover photo. An example of an actual Activity Notification on the TodGmbH® Services is the following: "John Doe posted at '...Space'." Activity Notifications may include Profile Content ( e.g. , your full name or username and Profile photo), and some may aggregate your activity with activity of third parties ( e.g. , "John Doe and Sally Smith connected to a ...").

        TodGmbH® makes this feature public to everyone by default, and anyone can see these Activity Notifications . Note that if your Profile is a Restricted Profile, the Profiles that you have allowed to connect to you will still see your Activity Notifications regarding your content consumption on TodGmbH®. From time-to-time we may offer you with options, such as an option to opt out on a session basis, or a persistent basis, from Activity Notifications related to your content consumption. Session settings are intended to last only as long as your TodGmbH® page is open in your browser. If you close your browser, the session-based setting will be reset to public, and your video play Activity Notifications will default to the visibility setting associated with your Profile's visibility. You should always check the content consumption Activity Notification setting each time you use the TodGmbH® Services, so that you are aware of and comfortable with your media consumption appearing as Activity Notifications.

        We may use Usage Information (such as about your media consumption, connections to content pages or Profiles, and posts regarding content pages or Profiles), and your Profile Content, to rank affinity to other Profiles and content. This allows us to identify " Top Users ", and we may use your Public Information to display that you are a Top User of an Business, other Profile, or a piece of content. Top User status is Public Information – anyone may see your status as a Top User. We also may provide analytics tools to Business Profiles that allow the owners of such Business Profiles to see Public Information of Users who strongly engage with the Business Profile or the content pages controlled by the Business Profile (e.g., videos or songs or such Business Profile), including Users that are not connected to the Business Profile.

        Unless otherwise noted, your consumption of media on the TodGmbH® Services will be Public Information.

      15. To Contact You
      16. TodGmbH® may periodically send promotional materials or notifications related to TodGmbH® Services or the services or products of TodGmbH®'s partners to the e-mail address you provided to us in your Registration Information or to the messaging functionality of your Profile(s).

      21. Co-Branded Areas (TodGmbH intern Spaces or Groups)
      22. Certain areas of the TodGmbH® Services may be provided to you in association with third parties (" Co-Branded Areas ") such are spaces or group pages of sponsors, charities and political organizations and will maybe require you to disclose Personal Information to them. Such Co-Branded Areas will identify the third party and indicate if they have a privacy policy that applies to their collection and use of you information. If you elect to register for products and/or services, communicate with such third parties or download their content or applications, at Co-Branded Areas, you may be providing your information to both us and the third party.
