Privacy


Revision date: 27 June, 2016

The Comedy Crowd respects your privacy.

This Privacy Policy explains what information we collect through thecomedycrowd.com (the “Web Site”), how we use that information, and what choices you have. The Web Site and our services available via the Web Site are collectively called the “Services.”

Please take a few moments to read this Privacy Policy. By accessing the Web Site, you acknowledge that this Privacy Policy applies to only the Services.

Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Services, to administer your use of the Services (including your Account (as defined below) if you are an Account holder), and to enable you to enjoy and easily navigate our Services.

Personally Identifiable Information

If you create a Comedy Crowd account via the Web Site (an “Account”), we collect certain information that can be used to identify you, such as your name, age/birthdate, postal address, e-mail address, credit card information, bank account details, social security number, or other information that can be used to contact you or identify you as an individual (collectively, “Identifiable Info”). Any Identifiable Info will be stored on our servers.

We collect and use your Identifiable Info if and when you register for special services provided from time to time, sign up for e-mail newsletters and, if applicable, purchase services. We use your Identifiable Info to help customize advertising and content available on the Web Site, to send you information about products and services that may be of interest to you and/or to conduct research for internal purposes. Some features, services, and promotional opportunities that we offer may also ask you to submit Identifiable Info to participate.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

Our servers automatically record certain information about how you might use our Services (we refer to this information as “Traffic Data”), for both account holders and non-account holders (either will be referred to as a “User”).

Log Data may include information such as a User’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, mobile device identifier, browser type, operating system, the pages or features of our Services to which a User browsed and the time spent on those pages or features, search terms, the links on our Services on which a User clicked, the friends of account holders who also use the Services, purchases made by the User, how often Users click on our advertisements, which files are downloaded most frequently, and which areas of our Site are the most popular and other statistics. We also collect certain information that your mobile device sends when you use our Services, including user settings, the operating system, as well as information about your use of our Services. We use this information to administer the Services and we analyse (and may engage third parties to analyse) this information to improve and enhance the Services by expanding their features and functionality and tailoring them to our Users’ needs and preferences, and to make recommendations. We may use a person’s IP address to fight spam, malware and identity theft. We also use the IP address to generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how our Services are used.

Like many Internet sites, we also use “cookies” to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer and is stored on your hard drive when you access our Services. When you visit our Services the cookie identifies your computer to us so that you do not have to re-register each time you visit. We also use cookies to identify that you’ve logged in to the Services, to tell us how and when you interact with our Services, to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on our Services, to return you to a persistent location of your choosing, and to customize and improve our Services and to measure the traffic to our Web Site and the use of different features of the Services. Although most browsers automatically accept cookies, you can change your browser options to stop automatically accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting cookies. Please note, however, that if you don’t accept cookies, you may not be able to access all portions or features of the Services. Third party advertisers that appear on the Web Site may place cookies on your computer and their use of the information stored on those cookies is subject to their own privacy policies. You should visit their websites to learn about their information practices. Note that this Privacy Policy only covers our use of cookies and does not include the use of cookies by such third parties. Advertisers or other companies do not have access to The Comedy Crowd’s cookies.

Location Information

If you access the Service on your mobile device, we will collect information about your location and/or use various  technologies such as 3rd party analytical software to determine your locations.

Use of Identifiable Info

Except as noted, The Comedy Crowd does not share your Identifiable Info with third parties unless you give us your permission or we need to share such information in order to provide our Services to you at your request.

Information Disclosed for Our Protection and the Protection of Others. We will disclose Identifiable Info when required by law or under the good-faith belief that such disclosure is necessary in order to conform to applicable law or comply with court orders, to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims, and to protect the property or interests of The Comedy Crowd, its agents and employees, personal safety, or the public. Under these circumstances, The Comedy Crowd may be prohibited by law, court order or other legal process from providing notice of the disclosure, and The Comedy Crowd reserves the right under those conditions to not provide notice in its sole discretion.

Information We Disclose with Your Consent or at Your Request – We will share your Identifiable Info with third-party websites or platforms, such as social networking sites, if you have expressly requested that we do so.

Your Profile Page

We will aim to provide a periodical newsletter to account holders, potentially containing profile descriptions and embedded images, which will be sent directly to your email address. You can opt out of receiving this newsletter by selecting the specified options in any such newsletter.

Please note that when you create an Account, your profile page will display your Account user name and certain statistics regarding your own use of the Services, including but not limited to, the date you became an Account holder, the selection of comedy materials you may have posted and how long ago you last visited the Web Site.

Updates to the Privacy Policy

Any information that we collect is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time the information is collected by us. However, we may update this Privacy Policy from time to time as our Services change and expand. If we update this Privacy Policy, we will notify you about significant changes by sending a notice to the email address specified in your Account, with the use of an internal message directed to your Account or by posting a notice of such changes on the Web Site. Unless otherwise provided, the updated Privacy Policy will take effect on the date it is posted. Once such changes become effective, your continued use of the Site and/or Services will signify your acceptance of the new Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, or any revised Privacy Policy, you should stop using the Web Site and/or Services.
