- INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
Telescope offers a variety of services, including voting services for television programs and digital product solutions for real-time engagement, interactive campaigns, and live event experiences that are collectively referred to as the “Service”. We may gather certain personally identifiable information that you provide to us when accessing a Service. When you use a Service, we may require you to provide “contact information”, such as name, address, email address, phone number, and mobile phone number, or such other personally identifiable information from time to time (collectively “Personal Information”). If you are logged into a social media profile to use or access a Service, we may collect Personal Information you make available from your profile, such as gender, age range, language, or geographic region. We will not collect any financial information (e.g., credit card numbers and/or bank account information).
As you use the Service, Telescope may also track and aggregate non-personally identifiable information about you (collectively, “Data”), for example your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address to use as a “unique identifier” for Service limitations or to determine whether you are in a geographic region that is eligible to use the Service. We do not link this Data with any Personal Information so you will remain anonymous to us.
We will not sell or rent your Personal Information to third parties. Telescope will store your Personal Information only as long as necessary to provide the Service or as otherwise required or permitted by law.
- LIMITED DISCLOSURES
We may share your Personal Information and/or Data with third parties who use and present the Service to the public; for example, the companies associated with the Service upon which you participated, such as the television program for which you cast your vote. We may disclose your Personal Information: (1) to our employees and contractors only to the extent necessary to provide the Service; (2) to comply with laws and regulations, including, for example, compliance with a court order or subpoena; (3) to enforce the Terms and Conditions, Terms of Service, and/or any other applicable rules of the Service (e.g. for contests, sweepstakes, promotions and games); (4) to protect your safety and security; (5) to protect the safety and security of Telescope, our employees and contractors, and property that belongs to Telescope or related third parties; and (6) to those involved in business activities of Telescope such as mergers, acquisitions, divestures, bankruptcy, or a transfer of all or part of Telescope’s assets or business.
- OPT IN
Telescope may offer you an opportunity to “opt-in” to receive marketing information from Telescope and/or third parties. This “opt-in” will require a response by you to signify your consent to receive additional information from Telescope and/or third parties. For example, if you are using the internet to access the Service, you may be asked to check a box to “opt-in” or if accessing via your mobile phone, by texting YES to a designated short code.
- ACCESS TO PERSONAL INFORMATION AND OPT-OUT
We take your privacy and data security very seriously and strive to maintain the security of all Personal Information voluntarily provided by you. We maintain appropriate physical, technical, and administrative safeguards to protect against unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure of Personal Information in our custody and control. However, no website or transmission of information over the internet or common carrier lines is guaranteed to be completely secure, and we cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data losses, or other breaches will never occur. Accordingly, any provision or transmission of information by you is done at your own risk.
- CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13
The Service provided by Telescope is not directed to and/or intended for children without parental or guardian consent. Telescope does not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13 without verifiable parental consent. In the event we discover we have inadvertently collected any Personal Information from a child under 13 years of age, Telescope will take the appropriate steps to delete this Personal Information, or seek the necessary verifiable parental consent for that collection.
- YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
Telescope only shares Personal Information collected with third parties for the third party’s direct marketing use if you have opted in to this sharing. If you are a resident of the State of California, pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1798.83, California residents have the right, once per calendar year, to request disclosure of what kind of Personal Information has been collected about you and then shared with other third parties for the third party’s direct marketing use, as well as the names and addresses of those third parties with which the information has been shared.
