Your privacy is important to us. It is The Media Segment’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect from you across our website, https://themediasegment.com, and other sites we own and operate.
We only ask for personal information when we truly need it to provide a service to you. We collect it by fair and lawful means, with your knowledge and consent. We also let you know why we’re collecting it and how it will be used.
We only retain collected information for as long as necessary to provide you with your requested service. What data we store, we’ll protect within commercially acceptable means to prevent loss and theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.
Like other Web publishers, we collect information to enhance your visit and deliver more individualized content and advertising. We respect your privacy and do not share your information with anyone.
Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. For example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to help enhance our site and services (e.g., to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive). Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners. Again, this information does not include any Personally Identifiable Information about you or allow anyone to identify you individually.
What we do with the information we collect?
Personally Identifiable Information collected by The Media Segment may also be used for other purposes, including but not limited to site administration, troubleshooting, processing of e-commerce transactions, administration of sweepstakes and contests, and other communications with you. Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site (our Web hosting service for example) may access such information. We will use your information only as permitted by law. In addition, from time to time as we continue to develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. We may also disclose your information in response to a court order, at other times when we believe we are reasonably required to do so by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us, and/or to law enforcement authorities whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary. Please note we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.
Affiliated Sites, Linked Sites and Advertisements
THE MEDIA SEGMENT expects its partners, advertisers and affiliates to respect the privacy of our users. Be aware, however, that third parties, including our partners, advertisers, affiliates and other content providers accessible through our site, may have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices. For example, during your visit to our site you may link to, or view as part of a frame on an THE MEDIA SEGMENT page, certain content that is actually created or hosted by a third party. If you use social media buttons on the Website (e.g. the Facebook “Like”, a Google+ “share”, or a Twitter “tweet” button), you will be providing certain information about yourself with the social media sites. For example, this shared information may include your Internet Protocol (IP) address and other information about you based upon the content you marked or shared using the social media button, as well as any comments you made about the content when using social media. Also, through THE MEDIA SEGMENT you may be introduced to, or be able to access, information, Web sites, features, contests or sweepstakes offered by other parties. THE MEDIA SEGMENT is not responsible for the actions or policies of such third parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing information on a feature or page operated by a third party.
You should also be aware that if you voluntarily disclose Personally Identifiable Information on message boards or in chat areas, that information can be viewed publicly and can be collected and used by third parties without our knowledge and may result in unsolicited messages from other individuals or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of THE MEDIA SEGMENT and this policy.
You are free to refuse our request for your personal information, with the understanding that we may be unable to provide you with some of your desired services.
Change in Policy
THE MEDIA SEGMENT reserves the right to change this policy at any time. Please check this page periodically for changes. Your continued use of our site following the posting of changes to the terms of this policy will mean you accept those changes. Information collected prior to the time any change is posted will be used according to the rules and laws that applied at the time the information was collected.
This policy is effective as of 1 January 2019.
