Third Party Policies
We Stream It TV collaborates and has business relationships with other companies, for example, providers of channels, content and services (including analytics and ad-related services), who may also collect information from the We Stream It TV Services or from third party channels on the We Stream It TV Devices (“Third Party Channels”). We Stream It TV also has accounts on third party social networking sites that let you connect with and follow We Stream It TV on those sites.
Part I. Information Collection
A. Information you provide
Information you provide We Stream It TV through the We Stream It TV Services includes, for example, your name, email address, postal address, billing and shipping information, product purchase information, credit card and other payment data, product registration information, and demographics. If you connect with We Stream It TV ’s accounts on third party social networking sites, we may also collect information about your social networking accounts, for example, your name, user name, or handle.
We also collect the personal information of other people, for example, if you provide email addresses of friends for referrals or postal addresses of recipients for gift purchases.
We may also combine information you provide with data we collect automatically (as further described in Section I-B below) and with data we receive from third parties. We may also associate information you provide with information we collect about you from different devices, browsers and platforms.
B. Information we collect automatically
1. We Stream It TV Site data
2. We Stream It TV Device data
We regularly and automatically collect information about your We Stream It TV Devices and your usage. The collected information includes, for example, the IP address associated with your We Stream It TV Devices, your device types and models, device identifiers (including RIDAs as described in Section II-B-2 below), the retailer to whom your We Stream It TV Device was shipped, various quality measures, error logs, software version numbers, Wi-Fi network name (SSID – service set identifier) and strength, and information about other devices connected to your We StreamItTV Device.
We also collect usage data such as your search history (including letters you key in for searches, and utterances provided if you choose to use voice search (if available on your We Stream It TV Device)), search results, content and advertisements you select and view, including through use of automatic content recognition technology (ACR) (see “More Ways to Watch and ACR on We Stream It TV TVs” (Section I-B-4) and “Choices regarding More Ways to Watch and ACR on We StreamItTv TVs” (Section IV-E), below), and content settings and preferences, channels you add and view, including time and duration in the channels, and other usage statistics.
3. We Stream It TV Direct Publisher Channel data
If you launch or view any We Stream It TV Direct Publisher Channel (a channel co-branded with the WeStreamItTv logo on the channel’s home page), We Stream It TV may also collect data about content and advertisements you view within the We Stream It TV Direct Publisher Channel. Additionally, the provider of such We StreamItTv Direct Publisher Channel and its service providers may also collect viewing information and other information through the channel, as may be described in their respective privacy policies.
4. More Ways to Watch and ACR on We StreamItTv TVs
If you choose to enable a feature called “More Ways to Watch” on your We Stream It TV TV, then in addition to the viewing information and other information that We Stream It TV collects from your We Stream It TV TV as described elsewhere in this policy, We Stream It TV may also collect viewing information using ACR. If “More Ways to Watch” is enabled, We Stream It TV uses ACR to help We Stream It TV identify the networks, channels, and programs you watch and when you watch them via your We Stream It TV TV’s antenna or devices connected to your We Stream It TV TV’s input ports, including over-the-air broadcasts and cable set-top boxes. Based on this information, we may recommend personalized content, serve personalized ads to you and measure viewership of ads and programming. We may supplement this viewing history with other demographic data we learn about you. We may also share viewing data derived from ACR with third parties such as measurement providers in an aggregate manner or in ways that do not personally identify you directly.
To understand your choices regarding ACR on We Stream It TV TVs, see Section IV-E on “Choices regarding More Ways to Watch and ACR on We Stream It TV TVs” below.
5. We Stream It TV Mobile App data
If you download We Stream It TV Mobile Apps to a mobile device, we also automatically log information related to your mobile device and network. We may log, for example, your device type, device identifiers, Wi-Fi networking connection data, information about connected Wi-Fi devices, the types and versions of mobile operating system you use, time-stamped logs of data exchanges associated with the We Stream It TV Mobile Apps, and usage statistics associated with the We Stream It TV Mobile Apps such as your search history (including letters you key in for searches, and utterances provided if you choose to use voice search (if available on your We Stream It TV Device)), search results, content you select and view, and channels you add and view. We also log whether you use a feature called Play on We Stream It TV to play content stored on your mobile device (such as music, photos, or videos) through the We Stream It TV Device connected with the We Stream It TV Mobile App. To let you play content on your mobile device through the We Stream It TV Device, the We Stream It TV Mobile App needs permissions to access content and other information stored on your mobile device.
Usage information about We Stream It TV Services may be associated with your We Stream It TV account or with product device identifiers (such as product serial numbers and other identifiers including those used for advertising and analytics). We associate device identifiers and usage data with your We Stream It TV accounts and other personally identifiable information for purposes described in this Policy.

Third parties who provide us with analytics services for the We Stream It TV Services may also automatically collect some of the information described above, including, for example, IP address, access times, browser type and language, device type, device identifiers and Wi-Fi information.
Other third parties, including channel providers, advertisers and ad-related services, may also automatically collect information about you through the We Stream It TV Services and Third Party Channels, including personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across different websites, devices, online channels and applications when you use our services. For example, channel providers and advertisers can collect information about your We Stream It TV Devices (including unique identifiers) and your usage of their channels for their own purposes, including advertising and analytics. Some third parties help us and others associate your activities across the browsers and devices you use, or that your household uses, for retargeting, cross-device advertising, analytics, and measurement purposes.

For more information on the cookies and related technologies used on We Stream It TV Site
2. We Stream It TV Device and channel advertising
Each We Stream It TV Device has unique identifiers, including unique, non-permanent identifiers called We Stream It TV Identifiers for Advertisers (RIDAs). We may use RIDAs and information associated with RIDAs to try to understand your interests, show you, and facilitate others’ ability to show you, more relevant advertising from We Stream It TV , Third Party Channels, and other advertisers, and understand the effectiveness of such advertising. We may supplement that information with information collected from the We Stream It TV Services, Third Party Channels, and websites, mobile apps, devices, platforms and data sources of third parties to further personalize the advertising you see on your We Stream It TV Devices, We Stream It TV Direct Publisher Channels, and Third Party Channels. We may also associate information collected using RIDAs with other information that identifies you, your household or your devices to personalize the advertising you see on third party websites, mobile apps, devices and platforms and other We Stream It TV Devices. We use third party service providers, such as Google, to help deliver, personalize and target this advertising.
Channel providers, third party advertisers, ad measurement providers, and ad services may also use RIDAs and other information they collect about you from your We Stream It TV Devices, We Stream It TV Direct Publisher Channels, and Third Party Channels for their own advertising purposes. Information collected may be used, among other things, to deliver advertising relevant to your interests and to better understand the usage and visitation of their channels and the effectiveness of their advertising.
In addition, certain third parties that provide measurement services with whom We Stream It TV has a business relationship (such as Nielsen and comScore) may use RIDAs to collect de-identified information (i.e., information that does not personally identify you directly) about We Stream It TV Devices. Such de-identified information includes content viewed in connection with ad data within We Stream It TV Direct Publisher Channels and Third Party Channels that enable such tracking, and if you enable “More Ways to Watch” on your We Stream It TV TV, viewing data that we collected using ACR (see Section I-B-4 on More Ways to Watch and ACR on We Stream It TV TVs above). We Stream It TV does not give these third parties the permission to collect or associate personal information that directly identifies you (unless you are a panelist who has agreed to let Nielsen identify you). These third parties use this de-identified information to create statistics about what content and ads are being watched. To learn more about your choices with respect to ad measurement activities, please see the information under Part IV Information Access and Choices below. If you would like more information about the data collection and usage practice of these third parties, please visit their respective privacy policies.
To understand your choices regarding use of RIDAs for personalized advertising and ad measurement, see Section IV-D “We Stream It TV Device and channel RIDA choices.”
