Thank you for choosing to be part of the Clipjoy community. We are committed to protecting your privacy and, for that reason, we have adopted this Privacy Policy to explain our data collection, use, and disclosure practices for our websites, including clipjoy.com, and all related sites, mobile apps, software, and services provided by us that link to or reference this Privacy Policy. The Clipjoy Platform is owned and operated by Clipjoy.

Please also review the applicable Terms of Use, which also apply to use of the Clipjoy Platform. Terms that are defined in the Terms of Use have the same meaning in this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy applies to information Clipjoy collects through the Clipjoy Platform, as well as other information provided to us online or offline by third parties when we associate that information with users of the Clipjoy Platform.

This Privacy Policy describes, among other things:

  • Personal and other information we collect about you;
  • How we collect your information;
  • How we use your information;
  • How we may share your information with third parties; and
  • Your choices regarding the personal information we collect about you.

1. Consent

Information gathered through the Clipjoy Platform may be transferred, used, and stored in the United States or in other countries where our service providers, our affiliates or we are located. If you use the Clipjoy Platform, you agree to the transfer, use, and storage of your Personal Information (as defined below) in those countries. The data protection and other laws of the United States and other countries might not be as comprehensive as those in your country. You agree that all transactions relating to the Clipjoy Platform or Clipjoy are deemed to occur in the United States, where our servers are located.

European Union Residents

If you reside in a country in the European Economic Area or in Switzerland, then information we collect from you may be subject to Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (the “GDPR”) and the following additional information is provided for your benefit. The controller of the personal data collected through the Clipjoy Platform is:

You hereby consent to the processing of your personal data as described in this Privacy Policy, including the transfer, use, and storage of your personal data in the United States. The data protection and other laws of the United States and other countries might not be as comprehensive as those in your country. You may withdraw your consent at any time by following the instructions in the Accessing/Updating/Deleting your Personal Information section below, but this will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. However, if you withdraw your consent or decline to provide personal data to us, you may be unable to use the Clipjoy Platform. You have the right to file a complaint relating to the processing of personal data with a supervisory authority.

Accessing/Updating/Deleting Your Personal Information

Additionally, if your Personal Information is subject to the GDPR, you may have certain additional rights, including the right of restriction of processing of personal data, and the right to object to the processing of personal data. Please send e-mail to contact@clipjoy.com for more information.

2. Collection of Your Personal and Other Information

We collect information from you directly and automatically when you use the Clipjoy Platform. We consider information that identifies you as a specific, identified individual to be personal information (such as your name, telephone number, and e-mail address), as well as additional information, including IP addresses (“Personal Information”). Clipjoy may collect Personal Information from you when you:

  • Interact with the Clipjoy Platform. Clipjoy collects your telephone number when you scan a QR code to record, upload or view User Content using the Clipjoy Platform. 

  • Submit Feedback through the Clipjoy Platform. Clipjoy collects the information that you provide in connection with us providing you customer service, such as your name and e-mail address.

  • Apply for a job with Clipjoy. Clipjoy collects the information you provide when you apply for a job with us through a third-party service or directly; this may include your name, contact information, employment history, educational background, any self-identifying information (such as veteran status, gender, and ethnicity) and other information you provide.

  • Work for Clipjoy. Clipjoy collects the information you provide when you perform as a service provider for Clipjoy.

We may also collect non-Personal Information relating to the Clipjoy Platform, that is, information that does not personally identify an individual. The non-Personal Information we may collect includes how you interact with the Clipjoy Platform, information generally collected or “logged” by Internet websites or Internet services when accessed or used by users, and information about your web browser or device accessing or using the Clipjoy Platform.

Examples of the non-Personal Information we may collect are:

  • Information about your computer or mobile device, such as its maker or operating system version, and HTTP header information;
  • The pages of our website that you viewed during a visit; and
  • What information, or content you view or interact with using the Clipjoy Platform; and
  • The city, state, province and country in which you are located.
  • The selected video(s) that you choose to share with Clipjoy from your device’s camera and/or photo library.

We will not use non-Personal Information to try to identify you, and if we associate any non-Personal Information with information that personally identifies you, then we will treat it as Personal Information. As discussed in more detail below, we sometimes use cookies and other automatic information gathering technologies to gather non-Personal Information.

Information collected by the Clipjoy Platform may be collected by us or one of our service providers, but in either case, this Privacy Policy will govern the collection, use, and sharing of the information.

3. Use of Your Information

We may use the information we collect to:

  • Assist us in providing, maintaining, and protecting the Clipjoy Platform;
  • Improve our online operations;
  • Provide customer service;
  • Communicate with you, such as enable you to extend the expiration date of User Content;
  • Perform research and analysis aimed at improving our products and services and developing new products or services; and
  • Manage and maintain the systems that provide the Clipjoy Platform;
  • Deliver targeted advertising to you for our business purposes with your explicit consent and permission; and

4. Disclosure of Your Information

We may disclose your Personal Information to third parties as described below.

We may disclose Personal Information to provide services to you, or when you authorize or instruct us to do so, for example when you use the Clipjoy Platform to submit and send User Content or to receive User Content.

We may disclose Personal Information and non-Personal Information to our retail or product business partners to whom we are providing Clipjoy services.

We may disclose Personal Information and non-Personal Information to those companies, agents, contractors, service providers, or others engaged to perform functions on our behalf (such as processing of payments, provision of data storage, hosting of our website, marketing of our products and services, conducting audits, and performing web analytics). 

We may license third-party software to include in or use with the Clipjoy Platform, in which case we may disclose Personal Information and/or Non-Personal Information to the licensor. These third parties’ collection and use of Personal Information and non-Personal Information are subject to their own privacy policies, which you can read here:

We may also disclose Personal Information to other third parties upon your consent to such disclosures.

In addition, we may disclose your Personal Information to third parties when we believe, in good faith and in our sole discretion, that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) enforce or apply the terms and conditions of the Clipjoy Platform, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (b) comply with legal or regulatory requirements or an enforceable governmental request, (c) protect the rights, property or safety of Clipjoy, our users or other third parties, (d) prevent a crime or protect national security, or (e) detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.

We also reserve the right to transfer information (including your Personal Information) to a third-party in the event of a sale, merger, or transfer of all or a portion of the assets of our company relating to the Clipjoy Platform, or in the unlikely event of a bankruptcy, liquidation, or receivership of our business. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you of such transfer, for example via email or by posting notice on our website.

Lastly, we may also disclose non-Personal Information, aggregated with information about our other users, to our business partners, merchants, investors, potential buyers and other third parties if we deem such disclosure, in our sole discretion, to have sound business reasons or justifications.

5. Cookies and Automatic Information Gathering Technologies

Every time you use the Clipjoy Platform we collect non-Personal Information (discussed above in Section 2) regarding that use. For example, to improve the Clipjoy Platform, we collect how, when, and which parts of the Clipjoy Platform or its features you use. Also, we may use your device’s unique identifier (UDID), or other unique identifiers to assist us in collecting and analyzing this data.

To assist us in collecting and storing this non-Personal Information, we may employ a variety of technologies, including “Cookies,” local browser storage, cloud storage, and “Web Beacons.” A “Cookie” is a small amount of data a website operator, or a third-party whose content is embedded in that website, may store in your web browser and that the website operator or, as applicable, the third-party, can access when you visit the website. A Cookie may also refer to web-browser-based storage provided by Adobe’s Flash plugin (a “Flash Cookie”). Clipjoy Platform Cookies may contain user preferences, unique identifiers, and other non-Personal Information. A “Web Beacon” is a small, usually transparent image placed on a web page that allows the operator of that image, which may be the operator of the website you visit or a third-party, to read or write a Cookie.  

We may use Cookies to track your movement through the Clipjoy Platform and elsewhere on the web or across apps and devices to help diagnose problems with servers, to gather broad demographic information, to conduct research, to record registration and personalization information, and to otherwise administer the Clipjoy Platform.  

In addition, Clipjoy may use Cookies in our communications with you, such as within e-mail and links, and to determine which messages have been opened by recipients.

Your operating system and web browser may allow you to erase information stored in Cookies, Flash Cookies, and local browser storage. But if you do so, you may be forced to login to the Clipjoy Platform again and you may lose some preferences or settings. You may also be able to set your browser to refuse all website storage or to indicate when it is permitted, but some features of the Clipjoy Platform may not function properly without it. We may use Cookies to keep you logged in, save your preferences for the Clipjoy Platform, and to collect information about how you use the Clipjoy Platform.

More information about managing Cookies is available here. Cookie management tools provided by your browser may not affect Flash Cookies. More information about managing Flash Cookies is available here. To learn how to manage privacy and storage settings for your local browser storage, please refer to the end user documentation for your browser.

6. Transparency and Choice; Do Not Track Signals

You may request access to your Personal Information by sending an email to contact@clipjoy.com. We will try to locate and provide you with your Personal Information and give you the opportunity to correct this data, if it is inaccurate, or to delete it, at your request. But, in either case, we may need to retain it for legal reasons or for legitimate business purposes.

We ask individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected, or removed before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardise the privacy of others, would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backups), or relate to information that is not associated with your Personal Information. In any case, where we provide information access and correction, we perform this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort.

Please be aware that if you request us to delete your Personal Information, you may not be able to continue to use the Clipjoy Platform. Also, even if you request that we delete your Personal Information, we may need to retain certain information for a limited period of time to satisfy our legal, audit and/or dispute resolution requirements.

We support the development and implementation of a standard “do not track” browser feature that provides customers with control over the collection and use of information about their web-browsing activities. Once a standardized “do not track” feature is released, we intend to adhere to the browser settings and modify this Privacy Policy accordingly.

7. Children

The Clipjoy Platform is not intended for users under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from users under 13 years of age. We do not authorize users under 13 years of age to use the Clipjoy Platform.

8. Information Security

We utilize reasonable information security measures to safeguard your Personal Information against unauthorized access, modification, or destruction. However, no data transmission over the Internet and no method of data storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its security.

Within Clipjoy, we restrict access to Personal Information to our employees, contractors, and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop, improve or support the Clipjoy Platform. If we share Personal Information with service providers, we require that they also use reasonable information security measures to safeguard your Personal Information and only use your Personal Information for the purposes for which we share it with them.

9. Notice to California Residents

California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits our users who are California residents to request and obtain from us, once a year and free of charge, information about categories of personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared personal information in the immediately preceding calendar year. Clipjoy does not currently disclose any information to third parties for direct marketing purposes. However, if we should engage in such activity in the future and you would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to us using the contact information provided below.

Additionally, under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), you may request, up to two (2) times per year: (1) the categories and specific pieces of data the that Clipjoy has collected from you; (2) the categories of sources from which your data was collected; (3) the categories of third parties to which your data has been disclosed or sold; and (4) the purposes for which the information was disclosed or sold. If you would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to us using the contact information provided below. 

Subject to certain limitations, you have the right to (1) request to know more about the categories and specific pieces of personal information Clipjoy collects, uses, and discloses about you, (2) request deletion of your Personal Information, (3) opt out of any sales of your Personal Information, and (4) not be discriminated against for exercising these rights. If you would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to us using the contact information provided below. 

10. Notice to Nevada Residents

Clipjoy does not currently sell your covered information as defined under applicable Nevada law; however, you may submit an opt-out request, which we will honor as required by Nevada law should we engage in such a sale in the future.

You may submit an opt-out request by sending an email message to contact@clipjoy.com; along with your full name, any username, and complete mailing address (including street address, city, state, and zip code), email address (so that we can contact you, if needed, in connection with the request) and confirmation that you are a Nevada resident.

You must provide us with information reasonably requested by us to verify your identity and the authenticity of the request.

We typically process these requests within 60 days from the day we receive it (and will notify you within that period if we need an additional 30 days to do so).

11.  Third-party Websites

Please note that the Clipjoy Platform may link or integrate with third-party sites, services, or apps. We are not responsible for the privacy or security policies or practices or the content of such third parties. Accordingly, we encourage you to review the privacy and security policies and terms of service of those third parties so that you understand how those websites collect, use, share and protect your information.

12. Changes to this Policy

We may modify or update this Privacy Policy periodically with or without prior notice by posting the updated policy on this page. You can always check the “Last Updated” date at the top of this document to see when the Privacy Policy was last changed.
