Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Antiques TV we have a few fundamental principles:

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Antiques TV collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Antiques TV’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Antiques TV’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Antiques TV may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Antiques TV also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Antiques TV.com blogs. Antiques TV only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Antiques TV’s websites choose to interact with Antiques TV in ways that require Antiques TV to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Antiques TV gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at antiques.tv to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Antiques TV – by purchasing access to the Akismet comment spam prevention service, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Antiques TV collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Antiques TV. Antiques TV does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Antiques TV may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Antiques TV may monitor the most popular blogs on the antiques.tv site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Antiques TV may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Antiques TV does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Antiques TV discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Antiques TV’s behalf or to provide services available at Antiques TV’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Antiques TV’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Antiques TV will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Antiques TV discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Antiques TV believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Antiques TV, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Antiques TV website and have supplied your email address, Antiques TV may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Antiques TV and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Antiques TV takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Antiques TV uses cookies to help Antiques TV identify and track visitors, their usage of Antiques TV website, and their website access preferences. Antiques TV visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Antiques TV’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Antiques TV’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Antiques TV, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Antiques TV goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Antiques TV may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Antiques TV and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Comments

Comments and other content submitted to our Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Antiques TV may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Antiques TV’s sole discretion. Antiques TV encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a Antiques TV account, you should also check your blog’s dashboard for alerts to these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
