TVCAD respects your privacy and has developed this privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) to demonstrate our commitment to protecting your privacy and to explain how we collect, use, and share information from or about you in connection with your use of the TVCAD Service (the “Data”).

The term "TVCAD Service" refers to the TVCAD website (the "TVCAD Site"), the TVCAD video player when it is embedded onto any website (the "Video Player"), the TVCAD apps and web-apps (the “ TVCAD Applications”) as accessible via any current or future device capable of distributing the TVCAD Site and/or the Video Player, together with any TVCAD products, content, channels, software, data feeds, services and functionality.

You can always choose not to provide certain information to us as further explained herein, but this may limit your ability to take full advantage of the many features we offer. If you do not consent to the collection and use of information from or about you in accordance with this Privacy Policy, then you must not access or use the TVCAD Service.

1.4. How the Data Is Collected.

1.4.a. Data Collected through Cookies and Similar Technologies. Like many online services, we use various technologies to collect usage data and store preferences. The data collected helps us to propose, protect and improve the TVCAD Service as well as to personalize your user experience by adapting the Content and advertising to your taste. The technologies we use are discussed below.

  • Cookies and Local Storage. One technology we use is called a cookie, a small data file that is transferred to your computer’s hard disk. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with the TVCAD Service or TVCAD advertising published outside of the TVCAD Service; to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on the TVCAD Service; and to customize Content and advertising. We may create a unique device or user ID for you and store it in a cookie so we can customize your experience based on your preferences. These uses allow us to create a better experience for you on the TVCAD Service. For further information on TVCAD's cookie management policy, please read out Cookie Policy available here.You may also decide to manage your cookie settings at any time by indicating which types of cookies you accept or refuse to receive by clicking on the cookie management page available at all times on the TVCAD Service.We may collect information through other kinds of local storage (also referred to as "Flash cookies") and HTML5 local storage, including in connection with features such as volume/mute settings for the Video Player. Since these technologies are similar to browser cookies, they are sometimes referred to as "browser cookies" even though they may be stored in different parts of your computer.Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. By changing your browser settings, you can instruct your browser to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. For further information on disabling cookies or deleting information contained in cookies in general, please click here. Please note that disabling cookies or deleting information contained in cookies or Flash cookies may interfere with the performance and features of the TVCAD Service, including the Video Player. For example, we may not be able to store your preferences or login information or customize the Content and advertising to your viewing habits.

  • Web Beacons or Pixels. In addition to cookies, we may use other technologies such as web beacons or pixel tags, which can be embedded in web pages, videos, or emails. Web beacons or pixel tags are used to collect certain types of information from your browser or device; check whether you have viewed a particular web page, ad, or email message; and determine other usage details including: the time and date on which you viewed Content, the IP address of your computer, and the URL of the web page from which the Content was viewed.

  • Mobile Device Identifiers and Software Development Kits ("SDKs"). We may use or work with third parties, including our business partners and service providers, who use mobile SDKs to collect information such as advertising identifiers (e.g., "ad-ID" or "IDFA") and information related to how mobile devices interact with the TVCAD Service. An SDK is computer code that app developers can include in their apps to enable ads to be shown, data to be collected and related services and functionality to be implemented (a mobile SDK is in effect the mobile app version of a pixel tag or beacon, described above). For instance, we may use this technology to analyze how you interact with Content and advertisements and to enable analytics or other features through mobile devices.

  • o The uses of these various technologies, notably in connection with advertising on the TVCAD Service, are explained further below.


 

2. PURPOSE FOR COLLECTING THIS DATA

We collect Data because we are passionate about creating customized and engaging experiences for our users. We use all of the information we have to help us provide and support the TVCAD Service with a first-class user experience.

Last Update: Oct 10, 2018

 

This page contains information on any cookies likely to be saved to your device, whether it be your computer, cell phone, tablet or smart TV, when visiting (i) the TVCAD website, accessible at www.TVCAD and elsewhere, including its local or specific extensions (like blog.TVCAD), and/or (ii) TVCAD apps, and/or (iii) the TVCAD video player (jointly referred to hereinafter as the “Site”).

WHAT ARE COOKIES?


Our chief aim is to ensure that you receive a reliable, effective, and functional service when browsing on our Site. On occasion, services provided on the internet need to save certain information on your device (computer, cell phone, tablet, …) using small files called “cookies”.

These text files are saved to your computer when you visit a site or view an ad. They are handled by your web browser and only the issuer of a cookie is likely to read the information it contains.

TVCAD uses cookies on its Site to, among other things:

  • Measure and analyze the audience for each page in order to subsequently improve the ergonomics, browsing, or visibility of content;

  • Measure the reliability of its Site by analyzing the number of visits to its pages in real time, and offer varied ads that are adapted to users’ areas of interest;

  • Recognize previously identified users whenever they connect (so users are not repeatedly asked for their username and password for each webpage they visit).


Cookies may also be saved by social media tools if you use these functionalities (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc.).

Cookies can be divided into several types: functional cookies, user experience personalization cookies, analytics cookies, advertising cookies, and social network cookies.

Besides how they are used, cookies may also be classified according to their issuer:

  1. Internal cookies are saved directly by TVCAD (also called first-party cookies);

  2. Third-party cookies are saved by companies  like Google Analytic or by TVCAD partners, which are usually advertising partners


 

Cookies may consist of « session » cookies that only last for as long as the site is being visited, or may consist of cookies of a longer duration, which allow information from one visit to be memorized until the next.

You can configure cookies settings yourself by accessing the cookie settings page available at all times on the Site.
