Personal Information

Non-Account Activity. You can watch videos on CricketCrowd without having being a registered user (know as a “member”) of CricketCrowd or having a CricketCrowd Account. You can also contact us about a particular video or other item, without having a CricketCrowd Account or a CricketCrowd Account. We provide a priority response service to our registered users.

Account-Related Activity

Certain other activities on CricketCrowd — like uploading videos, posting comments, flagging videos, or watching restricted content — require you to have a CricketCrowd Account. We ask for some personal information when you create a CricketCrowd Account, including your email address and a password, which is used to protect your account from unauthorized access. A CricketCrowd Account allows you to access many of our services that require registration.

Usage Information

If you are logged in, we may associate that information with your account. We may use clear GIFs (a.k.a. "Web Beacons") in HTML-based emails sent to our users to track which emails are opened by recipients.

Any personal information or video content that you voluntarily disclose online (on discussion boards, in messages and chat areas, within your playback or profile pages, etc.) becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by others. Uses If you submit personally identifiable information to us through the CricketCrowd Sites, we use your personal information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the general and personalized features and functionality of the CricketCrowd website, and to process any flagging activity or correspondence you send to us.

We may, however, use your email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major CricketCrowd website changes or for customer service purposes). We use both your personally identifiable information and certain non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous user usage data, cookies, IP addresses, browser type, clickstream data, etc.) to improve the quality and design of the CricketCrowd websites and to create new features, promotions, functionality, and services by storing, tracking, analyzing, and processing user preferences and trends, as well as user activity and communications.

Your Choices

You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through the CricketCrowd Sites, in which case you can still view videos and explore the CricketCrowd Sites, but CricketCrowd may not be able to provide certain services to you. Some advanced CricketCrowd features may, for authentication purposes, require you to sign up for other CricketCrowd services. The privacy notices of those services govern the use of your personal information associated with them. You may update or correct your personal profile information and email preferences at any time by visiting your account profile page.

  • You may also turn off cookies in your browser.

Third-party Links to Other Sites

CricketCrowd allows other companies, called third-party networks, to serve advertisements within the CricketCrowd 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 CricketCrowd 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 you see. CricketCrowd 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 CricketCrowd to show an advertisement to a certain audience (for example, men ages 25-30) or audience segment (for example, men ages 25-30 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.

The advertiser may also use information regarding your use of the CricketCrowd Sites, such as the number of times you viewed an ad (but not any personally identifiable information), to determine which ads to deliver to you.

You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party ad servers or ad networks (see links below) for more information on their practices and for instructions on how to opt-out of certain practices.

CricketCrowd's privacy policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, such other advertisers or web sites.
