PRIVACY POLICY

Last Updated: January 23, 2013

Overview

Welcome to Upfront Media, Exclusive Online Communities for influencers and their super fans. The Upfront Media website at www.beupfront.com and related domains, mobile applications, and other services (collectively, the "Service") are operated by Upfront Media Group, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("the Company," “we,” or “us”). We know that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly.  This privacy policy describes our Privacy Policy for the Service.  Capitalized terms used but not defined in this Privacy Policy shall have the meaning set forth in your Terms and Conditions with us. 

This Privacy Policy covers only information that is collected through the Service and does not cover websites to which we link.

Information We Collect and How We Use It

In general, we collect Personal Information (as defined below) in order to verify your identity, deliver the products and services that you have requested, help us maintain the appropriate features, functionality and user experience, enforce our terms and conditions, and manage our business.  We will retain your Personal Information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you with Services. We will retain and use your Personal Information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

"Personal Information" means information that specifically identifies an individual (such as a name, address, telephone number, mobile number or e-mail address) or other information about that individual that is directly linked to Personal Information, including financial information of such individual.  Personal Information does not include "aggregate" information, which is data we collect about the access or use of our Service by the Users and anonymous data related to the demographic of the Users.  Personal Information does not include information displayed in your public profile on our Service.  Any information you do choose to share in your public profile can be accessed by all other Users.

We collect and store information, including Personal Information, that is voluntarily supplied to us by you when registering for, or using, the Service. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but by doing so, you may not be able to take advantage of certain features and functionality of the Service.   
Certain Personal Information, as indicated below, must be supplied during the registration processes in order to (a) enable you to login to the Service and (b) guard against potential fraud. These required Personal Information include:

  • Your name;
  • Your email address;
  • Your date of birth;
  • Your zip or postal code;
  • Your gender; and

Certain Personal Information, as indicated below, are not mandatory but may be required in order for us to provide you with certain portions or features of the Service. These optional Personal Information include:

  • Your mobile phone number;
  • Your credit card and other payment and billing information;
Information We Collect About Users

We automatically track certain information based upon your use of the Service.  We use this information on our Users’ demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand, protect and serve you and our community and to provide our artists with better understanding of their audiences.
By using our Service, you indicate your consent for the Company and our affiliates to send cookies to your computing device in order to uniquely identify your browser and improve the quality of our services.  For a description of how cookies work, please see the section entitled “Cookies” below.

Log Files

Like many online services, we automatically gather certain information about our Service traffic and store it in log files.  This information includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.  We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the Service, to track users’ movements around the Service and to gather demographic information about our user base. 

Cookies

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computing device for record-keeping purposes.  We use cookies in connection with the Service.  This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by the Service only and does not cover the use of cookies by any third parties.

We use both session ID and persistent cookies.  A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser.  We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our Service. A persistent cookie remains on your storage device for an extended period of time. We set a persistent cookie to store your session identifier so that when you return to the Service on the same computing device, you do not have to login again.  The identifier in the persistent cookie also allows us to look up details of your previous session to make your use of the Service easier.  The persistent cookie may also contain a cryptographic checksum used to verify the origin and identity of the session.

If you reject cookies, you may still use our Service, but your ability to use some areas of our Service may be limited.

Subscription-Related Communications
Depending on your subscription with us, you may receive text, video, photo, SMS, voicemail, email, and other communications from us, any artists you have subscribed to, or third party service providers, in each case in connection with such subscription. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to change your notification settings in your account page or deactivate your account.

Service-Related Announcements
We will send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so.  For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email.

Links to Other Websites
The Service may contain links to other websites that are not owned or controlled by the Company.  Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy policies of such other websites.  We encourage you to be aware when you leave the Service and to read the privacy policies of each and every website that collects Personal Information. 

Access to Personal Information
If your Personal Information changes, or if you no longer desire the Service, you may correct, update, delete or deactivate it by making the change on your account page or by emailing our Customer Support at support@beupfront.com.

Security
The security of your Personal Information is important to us.  When you enter sensitive information on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). 

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.  No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however.  Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

If you have any questions about security on our Service, you can email us at support@beupfront.com.

Your Consent
By accessing or using the Service, you consent to the current version of our Privacy Policy.

Changes to our Privacy Policy
If we decide to change our Privacy Policy, we will post changes to this Privacy Policy and other places we deem appropriate so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. 
We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time, and such change will apply with respect to information you provide or your activity on the Service after the change in policy, so please review it frequently.  If we make changes that materially affect our uses or disclosures of Personal Information that we have previously collected, we will contact you here, by email, or by means of a notice on our home page to obtain your consent to have the changes to our Privacy Policy apply retroactively.
