Vidtocracy uses this anonymous information to customize your experience on our site, to show you more relevant advertising messages, and to improve our services in general. This information allows other users to benefit from the quality searches you perform, ultimately receiving the most relevant, pertinent information. We ordinarily do not attempt to link this information to a specific person.

How Do We Use Personal Information?
Our primary goal is to provide members with the most useful and enjoyable experience on the Internet. Our advertisers will never be privy to your Membership Information, unless you permit us to give it to them so that they can provide you with products or services. Your e-mail address may be used by us for communications related to the Vidtocracy services, including but not limited to sending notices about new features, products, or other information of interest to you.
The Vidtocracy website is constantly evolving and changing in content and in features. Member Information helps guide such changes and the evolution of our websites. Our advertisers and affiliates may be provided general information or data regarding membership usage patterns or interests, so that they too can better serve your needs and preferences, but such disclosure will not include individually identifiable information. The collection of usage and interest information allows us to provide a constantly evolving and user-sensitive package of services, products, and features that satisfy member needs, wants and desires but always with the priority of protecting individual member privacy.
Do Any Third Parties Receive or Collect Your Information Through Vidtocracy?
In the few instances where Vidtocracy collects personally identifiable information, Vidtocracy will not share it with other companies or individuals unless:
We have your permission to share the information; or we need to share your information with certain third parties with which we have a business relationship in order to provide a product or service you have requested. Unless we tell you otherwise, these third parties do not have the right to use your personal information we share with them beyond what is necessary to deliver your requested product or service; or we are responding to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process, to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
Furthermore, Vidtocracy will not sell or disclose your personally identifiable information as customer lists to anyone. Vidtocracy shares some of the user information, such as user trends, search language, and time of day with third parties that may set and access cookies on your computer. Other advertisers or advertising services may set cookies but this information is not shared with Vidtocracy nor is it personally identifiable information.
None if these third parties nor any other advertiser or advertising service, receives personally identifiable information from Vidtocracy. However, certain advertisements or contests you see on our site may provide for the collection of personally identifiable information. Such information is never shared with Vidtocracy.
What Security Measures Are in Place to Protect Your Information?
Vidtocracy operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection. We have security measures in place to attempt to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of your user data. Only certain employees have access to the information you provide us.
Affiliates and advertisers, product and service providers may also use their own cookies when you interact with their sites and you should be aware of this as you do so.
We use third-party advertising companies (Google) to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.
