Effective August 12, 2015
INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE:
In order to use the IPitch.TV Web site (the “Service”), you must first complete the registration form(s) and create a user name and password. During registration you are required to give contact information (such as name, address and email address). We use this information to operate the Service, to contact you about changes to the Service, and to enable communication between participants. You may receive emails from IPitch.TV during the registration process and thereafter. If you register as an industry executive (a “Company”), you may be contacted by phone to confirm your identity and status.
If you register as a creator of pitch materials (a “Creator”), you will be required to purchase a subscription to receive access to the Service. During the subscription process, we request certain personally identifiable information from you on our order form, which will be provided to and maintained by PayPal.com, an independent entity. You must provide contact information (such as name, email, and billing address) and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date).
We use this information for billing purposes and to communicate confirmation of successful payment and any payment failures. If we have trouble processing an order, or are made aware that your payment method will be expiring, we will use this information to identify and contact you. IPitch.TV itself does not maintain your sensitive financial information other than expiration date.
From time-to-time we may provide you the opportunity to participate in surveys on our site. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code). We may use a third party service provider to conduct these surveys; that company will be prohibited from using our users’ personally identifiable information for any other purpose. We will not share the personally identifiable information you provide through a survey with other third parties unless we give you prior notice and choice.
If we create, and you choose to use, a referral service to tell a friend about IPitch.TV, we will ask you for your friend’s name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site but will not retain this information unless the friend specifically elects to use the Service.

Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature, except by deleting your account and removing your access to the Service.
Based upon the personally identifiable information you provide us, we will send you a welcoming email to verify your username and password. We will also communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to manage your account. We will communicate with you by email or telephone, as necessary. We may share your profile with other third parties needed to operate the Service.
We store information that we collect through cookies and log files, to create a “profile” of your preferences. We tie your personally identifiable information, and your subscription history, to information in the profile, in order to operate the Service and to provide tailored promotions and IPitch.TV marketing offers, and to improve the content of the site for you.
