You expressly consent to the processing of your Personal Data according to this Privacy Statement. Personal Data may be processed by TOK.tv in the country where it was collected as well as other countries (including the United States) where laws regarding processing of Personal Data may be less or more stringent.
1. INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
TOK.tv allows you to submit Personal Data through the Site and the Services. “Personal Data” is information about you that is personally identifiable to you as well as other non-public information to the extent that it is associated with the foregoing.
When you register with TOK.tv, you submit the following types of Personal Data to TOK.tv: your e-mail address, and/or your Facebook credentials.
1.3 Additional Information
In order to help you find and connect with users you know or help other users find and connect with you, we might sync your Facebook friends and your mobile address book on our servers. If you send TOK.tv an email or a mail (to provide feedback or to ask a question regarding the Site or Services), TOK.tv will collect any information contained in such communication. TOK.tv may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests, and improve the Services. TOK.tv will treat the Personal Data in such communication in accordance with this Privacy Statement.
1.4 Audio Content Recognition
The TOK.tv services might include an audio content recognition technology for the purpose of matching background advertising (e.g. on TV) and providing a corresponding advertising on the app. The content is recognized by using the mobile phone microphone. The audio is immediately secured and processed into a “Fingerprint”. The Fingerprint is then encrypted, compressed and transferred to a server for content matching. If the content is successfully recognized then we send information about the content to the mobile app. To help ensure user privacy and security, after the matching attempt, the Fingerprint is immediately deleted on the mobile device and the server. Even if someone was to get a Fingerprint, it is impossible to understand any recognizable audio from these Fingerprints.
1.5 Location Information
We may determine your location by using data from your device, such as precise location information from GPS, information about wireless networks or cell towers near your mobile device, or your IP address. We may use and store information about your location to provide features of our Services and to improve and customize the Services, including advertising.
1.6 Private Messages
We provide a feature that allows you to communicate privately with other users via text messages. When you privately communicate with others through our Services, we will store and process your communications, and information related to them. While these feature are intended to be private, please remember that recipients may copy, store, and re-share the contents of your communications.
1.8 Use of Account Data
We may use your Account Data for license reporting and assessment of service levels; to better understand how our Site and Services are used; to gauge traffic patterns and determine what types of content and services are most popular with users; to contact you with information about TOK.tv and third party products, services, news and events, including advertising.
