Privacy Policy

This is how we collect, use, and disclose customer information.

 We only collect the minimal information to differentiate between users, to communicate with you, and to offer you a meaningful service. This is a list of what we collect, why, and how it is used:

  •  Username You provide this so you can have a unique and personalized account, so that video clips and productions can be identified. Your username is visible to other users
  • Email address You provide this so that we can contact you to help you use our service, such as to answer support questions or to notify you of software updates.  Your email address is retained but not shared with other users.
  • Password You provide a password for authentication, it is encrypted and only you have access to it.
  • Billing Information You may provide this so that we can complete a commercial transaction. It is of course private and secure.
  • Profile Information Profile information that you provide is used to best match programming with you or others interests.  It is shared indirectly with other users or partners.
  • Sensor Information The information recorded during the use of our application includes the output of multiple sensors that contain information such as the geographic location of use. We collect this information in order to best deliver our service. This information is generally shared. For example, we may inform one of our advertisers that a user was at a specific location, so an ad could be location-targeted.
  • Media Content  The primary purpose of CrowdChannel and CrowdMUX is to facilitate the creation of collaborative (contributor-to-contributor and contributor-to-viewer) video productions. By participating, you are engaging in a social activity for the specific purpose of non-private sharing. It is therefore important to understand the two primary components, contributed media clips, and media productions.

Contributed Media Clips: Contributed Media Clips are owned and copywrited by you, but by uploading you are granting permission for it to be used by CrowdChannel and CrowdMUX in a Media Production. You are offering it to us, and allowing other users to see it. You have the right to retract a Contributed Media Clip

Media Productions: A Media Production may include Contributed media clips that are from multiple users. All media productions are owned and copywrited by CrowdChannel and CrowdMux. When a production is created, the source clips are no longer owned by users. Media Production can be private, producer or public:

         Private: Only shared with Production contributors

         Producer: Only shared with the Producer of the Production

         Public: Shared Publicly with other users
