1. Collecting information
We collect information about you in the following ways:
As part of your registration and preference choices for SquarePine’s software and services
SquarePine offers the ability for you to provide your interests, likes and dislikes, and information respecting your third-party social networking accounts, blogs, tweets, and other messaging and update services so that SquarePine can direct video content and other information to your mobile device that is targeted to your interests and memberships. The amount and level of detail of the information you provide is completely up to you, so that you control the type of content that is sent to you by SquarePine.
Automatically by SquarePine’s software and services
SquarePine’s software and services contain features that automatically collect information from users, such as viewing times, usage statistics, and other tracking information. Although this information will not identify you personally, it nevertheless provides certain information about you, and we therefore treat it as personal information. Additionally, use of SquarePine’s website and/or software may result in the collection of technical information such as your computer’s IP address, operating system, browser name/version, the referring web page, requested page, date/time, and sometimes a “cookie” (which can be disabled using your browser preferences); such information is used to help us understand the overall usage pattern of our website and software.
As part of your use of SquarePine’s software and services
You have the ability to post information through SquarePine’s services, such as ratings or opinions on videos viewed or other comments and opinions. Please be advised that any personal information that you voluntarily post to any public forum or to any area where third parties may legally access it will NOT be considered confidential in any way, and SquarePine will not have any obligation to protect it in a secured system or to obtain your consent to its disclosure, as you will have made the decision to publicly post it. However, at your request, SquarePine will be happy to change it, remove it, or restrict access to it (subject to technical feasibility) to protect the integrity of the personal information.
You contact SquarePine directly
Customers and business partners often contact us directly. When you contact any SquarePine employee by telephone, e-mail, in person, or through our website, you will be asked to provide consent to the collection of personal information if your personal information will help us deliver the information, products, or services you require.
You respond to communications from SquarePine
From time to time, SquarePine may invite you to provide us with information for specific purposes. We may ask for this information through feedback features on our website or software; we may send e-mail inviting feedback or offering products and services; or we may ask you for information concerning support of our products or services.

2. Sharing your personal information
Subject to any exceptions stated above in the collection of information section, should SquarePine collect any of your personal information, we will follow these practices regarding the distribution of that information.
Your personal information is always protected
SquarePine uses reasonable precautions to protect your personal information and store it securely. Access to your personal information is restricted to those personnel who need it, and SquarePine takes reasonable steps to prevent the unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information.
SquarePine uses and discloses your personal information only if it helps us facilitate your needs, improve our products and services, meet legal and regulatory requirements, or—to the limited extent possible—manage our internal business operations. Additionally, if there are any disclosure or use restrictions in your consent to the collection of your personal information, SquarePine will abide by those restrictions (subject to the consent exceptions listed below).
SquarePine may combine your information with other information into an aggregate form, so your information no longer personally identifies you. We may then disclose the aggregate information to third parties, so they can obtain an overall picture of SquarePine’s products, services, customer sectors, and/or usage patterns.
We share your information only with your consent
SquarePine provides your information to third parties only for purposes to which you have consented, and we require such third parties to keep your information confidential.
In a few situations, SquarePine may be required to disclose your information without your prior consent. For example, SquarePine may disclose your information if we are required to do so by law or if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to:
comply with law or legal process
protect and defend our rights and property or the rights and property of a third party
protect against misuse or unauthorized use of any of SquarePine’s products, software, services, or other proprietary materials
protect the personal safety of any person
SquarePine will always try to provide you with prior notice of such disclosure; however, such notice may not always be possible or reasonable given the circumstances.
Additionally, the nature of the services provided requires the routine use of your information in the provision of the services. Your personal information will be used only to the limited extent necessary to provide the services that you have requested, and may include the following uses:
to allow third-party suppliers, vendors, contractors, and other parties to provide products and services to us or to you or to otherwise act on our behalf (this may include, without limitation, our authorization of such third parties to e-mail our users regarding updates, surveys, and other inquiries regarding their experience with our software and service); and
to allow for advertising and other audits and surveys to, among other things, validate the size and composition of the users of SquarePine’s services, and understand their experience with SquarePine software and service. This may require, among other things, disclosing your viewing history and/or disclosing records showing which advertisements were viewed by which users.
