Acceptance of These Terms
What information, including personally identifiable information, does G4 collect from and about you?
Our goal in collecting information from and about you is to provide you with the best web experience possible. In order to provide you with our services, G4 collects two types of information from its community: passive technical information; and information you voluntarily provide to G4, including personally identifiable information.
-Information You Provide. G4 does not require anyone to register and become a G4 member for general use of the Site. However, should you choose to register and become a G4 member so that you may take advantage of G4's membership benefits (which include access to G4 chat rooms, message boards and Filter rating systems), G4 requires that you provide the following information: first name, last name, ZIP code, country, e-mail address and date of birth. Additionally, G4 may ask for other optional information so that G4 can learn more about who our users are and what they want out of our Site. In order to better understand our users and to provide you with a better web experience, G4 may analyze the ages of our users in connection with the pages our users tend to visit and the shows they access. G4's use and disclosure of the information you provide us, including personally identifiable information, is set forth below.
What other organizations besides G4 may be collecting information from you on the Site?
What happens to my information after G4 collects it?
When G4 collects information from you, G4 does not share any information with third parties outside of G4 without your consent. You will give this consent by "opting-in" to having your information shared with third parties when you register. These third parties may include G4's marketing partners, who may want specific information to better shape their marketing efforts. Additionally, G4 provides the community the opportunity to be sent newsletters and information about promotional events, publications, and marketing events. Again, G4 will not send this information to you unless you "opt in" for these services and publications.
In addition, G4 will not sell, dispose, or otherwise transfer your personally identifiable information to third parties without your consent except as specifically set forth in this paragraph and in the preceding paragraph. When you choose to supply G4 with your personally identifying information, G4 compiles this information in a database with other G4 community members' information and G4 reserves the right to transfer this information to a successor, related entity or to a third party purchasing or succeeding to G4's assets. Further, G4 shares the postal ZIP codes of our users in the aggregate to cable and satellite companies and their affiliates for use in distributing and marketing of the G4 television network.
How can you review and correct information you submitted to the Site, unsubscribe, or opt out?
You may review, change, or delete any information you submitted to G4 by going to the "Edit Profile" screen. Additionally, it is optional to supply personally identifying information to use the Site. However, if you do provide G4 with personally identifying information, there are several ways you may unsubscribe from our chat rooms and message boards, and remove your information from our databases. You can send an email to email@example.com. In this email, you must include your user name and password, and a description of the information you would like to change. Alternatively, you can send mail to the following postal address:
G4 Media, Inc.
5750 Wilshire Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90036
Additionally, if you choose to receive G4 newsletters, you may unsubscribe from this service in the manner indicated in each newsletter.
What kinds of security procedures are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under G4's control?
G4 uses industry standard security measures to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under G4's control, including firewalls and other security measures. Nonetheless, due to the inherent dangers of the Internet, G4 cannot guarantee the protection of such information against loss, misuse, or alteration.
Additionally, G4 provides an opportunity for the G4 community to communicate and interact through G4's message boards and chat rooms, and through private messaging in the forums and chat rooms. G4 monitors the message boards with G4 employees and select community members known as moderators to ensure that these communications run smoothly.
