Privacy Policy

Updated: September 6, 2016

When you use LightShowHub services, you trust us with your information. This Privacy Policy is meant to help you understand what data we collect, why we collect it, and what we do with it.

Information we collect

We collect information in the following ways:

  • Information you give us. For example, posting to our service requires you to sign up for a LightShowHub Account. When you do, we may ask for some personal information, like your name, and email address. If you want to take full advantage of the featuress we offer, we might also ask you to create a publicly visible profile, which may include your name and photo.
  • Information we get from your use of our services. We collect information about the services that you use and how you use them, like when you watch a video, search content, or post content. This information may include:
    • Device information

      We collect device-specific information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information).

    • Log information

      When you use our services or view content provided by LightShowHub, we automatically collect and store certain information in server logs. This may include:

      • details of how you used our service, such as your search queries.
      • Internet protocol (IP) address.
      • device event information such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL.
      • cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your Account.
    • Local Storage

      We may collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches.

    • Cookies and similar technologies

      We use various technologies to collect and store information when you use our service, and this may include using cookies or similar technologies to identify your browser or device.

How we use information we collect

We use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect LightShowHub and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content – like giving you more relevant search results.

If you have a LightShowHub Account, we may display your Profile name, Profile photo, and actions you take on LightShowHub (such as "Stars", "Following", and comments you post) in our services. We will respect the choices you make to limit sharing or visibility settings in your Account.

We use information collected from cookies and other technologies, like pixel tags, to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services. One of the products we use to do this is Google Analytics.

We will ask for your consent before using information for a purpose other than those that are set out in this Privacy Policy.

LightShowHub processes personal information on our servers in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live.

Information you share

Many of our services let you share information with others. Remember that when you share information publicly, it may be indexable by search engines, including Google. Our services provide you with different options on sharing and removing your content. We are not responsible for the speed at which publically viewable information is removed from, or changed in search engine results. It may take time before a search engine updates their indexes appropriately, and we have no control over the speed at which this takes place.

Accessing and updating your personal information

Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.

We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems).

Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.

Information we share

We do not share personal information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of LightShowHub unless one of the following circumstances applies:

  • With your consent

    We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of LightShowHub when we have your consent to do so. We require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information.

  • For external processing

    We provide personal information to our affiliates or other trusted businesses or persons to process it for us, based on our instructions and in compliance with our Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures.

  • For legal reasons

    We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of LightShowHub if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:

    • meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
    • enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations.
    • detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
    • protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of LightShowHub, our users or the public as required or permitted by law.

We may share non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our services.

Information security

We work hard to protect LightShowHub and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. In particular:

  • We encrypt our services using SSL.
  • We review our information collection, storage and processing practices, to guard against unauthorized access to systems.
  • We restrict access to personal information to LightShowHub employees, administrators and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us.

When this Privacy Policy applies

Our Privacy Policy applies to all of the services offered by LightShowHub.

Our Privacy Policy does not apply to services offered by other companies or individuals, including products or sites that may be displayed to you in search results, or other sites linked from our services. Our Privacy Policy does not cover the information practices of other companies and organizations who advertise our services, and who may use cookies, pixel tags and other technologies.

Changes

Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will post any privacy policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide prominent notice (including, for certain cases, email notification of privacy policy changes).
