At SendtoNews Video Incorporated (referred to as "SendtoNews", "we", "us or "our", below), we own and operate the SendtoNews.com website (the "Website"). We respect and are committed to protecting your privacy, and we support a general policy of openness about how we collect, use and disclose your personal information.
This Privacy & Security Policy (the "Policy") informs you how SendtoNews collects, uses and discloses the personal information that you provide to us through use of our Website and subscription to our services. By subscribing to our services, visiting the Website or otherwise using any SendtoNews online service, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information in accordance with this Policy.
We recommend that you take the time to read this Policy so that you understand how we handle and process information, including personal information. As we develop and expand our services, this Policy may also change. We will include a "last amended" date on the Policy as displayed on the Website. We strongly encourage you to refer back to the Policy periodically.
This Policy also explains how you can contact us if you have a question about our privacy practices, want to change or update your personal information or change your preferences concerning our use and disclosure of your personal information.
For the purpose of this Policy, "personal information" means information about an identifiable individual, but does not include the name, title or business address or telephone number of an employee or volunteer of an organization. SendtoNews will not collect, use or disclose your personal information in a way that is incompatible with this Policy.
Account Creation and Service Delivery
When you sign up for an account with SendtoNewsâ€”we ask for your full name, email address, employer, job title, telephone number, state/province, country, zip/postal code, and a password. We use this information to process and maintain your account request or facilitate the provision of other services you request from us.
For example, we use your email address and telephone number to answer inquiries that you send to us, and to communicate with you when necessary concerning the administration of your account and the processing of your requests. As these functions are necessary to the proper administration of your account and our related services, we do not offer an opt-out from providing your email address and telephone number for such communications.
We use your state/province, country, and zip/postal code information in order to ascertain our location and time zone, which allows us to provide information localized for your needs and interests.
Optionally, we also invite you to provide a street address, a website address, mobile telephone and facsimile numbers. We use this information to answer inquiries that you send to us, and to communicate with you when necessary. We also invite you to submit a corporate logo and / or a personal picture.
