The Information GayTube Collects

The Way GayTube Uses Information

Search Engines and User Information

Search engines regularly spider/crawl the internet as part of their function. GayTube is not excluded from this activity by these search tools, and as a result, and information you post to GayTube.com is available for indexing by these search engines. The simple version: Whatever you type onto GayTube.com can show up in a Google search result. GayTube.com takes no responsibility for the information you choose to post onto an unsecured GayTube.com page. The smartest thing you can do about this, if it concerns you, is to use different usernames than what you use on other websites. You do not want your work username to show up in a Google search pointing to GayTube.com... Do you?

When GayTube Discloses Information

Your Choices

You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through the GayTube Sites, in which case GayTube may not be able to provide certain services to you. You may update or correct your personal profile information and email preferences at any time by visiting your account profile page. Please note that media files uploaded by Users to the GayTube Sites remain subject to our Terms of Use.

To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you profile access or making corrections. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information at all times. Please contact GayTube with any questions or comments about this Privacy Notice, your personal information, your consent, or your opt-in or opt-out choices using this contact form.

Third-party Advertisers, Links to Other Sites

GayTube allows other companies, called Webmasters, third-party ad servers or ad networks, to serve advertisements within the GayTube Sites. These third-party ad servers or ad networks use technology to send, directly to your browser, the advertisements and links that appear on the GayTube Sites. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, or Web Beacons) to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize the advertising content.

GayTube does not provide any personally identifiable information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. However, please note that if an advertiser asks GayTube to show an advertisement to a certain audience (for example, men ages 18-34) or audience segment (for example, men ages 18-24 who have viewed certain channels of content) and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they are trying to reach.

You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party ad servers or ad networks. GayTube's privacy policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, such other advertisers or web sites.

Our Commitment To Data Security

GayTube uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to GayTube and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission of information, GayTube makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.

If GayTube learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. GayTube may post a notice on the GayTube Sites if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive a free written notice of a security breach (or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice) you should notify us using this contact form.
