By using the Twitch Service, you expressly consent to the information handling practices described in this notice.
You may update, correct, or delete your user information and preferences by visiting the Settings Page located at www.twitch.tv/settings or www.justin.tv/settings, as applicable, once you have logged in to the Twitch Service.
To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting you account access or making corrections to your information. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information at all times.
Twitch may allow advertisers, third-party advertising networks and third-party advertising serving companies to serve advertisements directly to you within the Twitch Service and other Twitch sites, services and software. By serving these advertisements directly to you, these companies can set their own cookies on your computer and trigger their own Web beacons and other tracking technologies to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements, and to collect and track information such as demographic information, inferred interests, aggregated information, and activity to assist them in personalizing the advertising content delivered to you. Twitch does not provide your personally identifiable information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent. However, please note that if an advertiser asks Twitch to show an advertisement to a certain audience (for example, males age 15 to 18) or audience segment (for example, males age 15 to 18 who have participated in certain promotions) and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience that they were trying to reach.
Twitch uses certain physical, managerial, and technical measures designed to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Twitch, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission of information, Twitch makes efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
If Twitch learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. Twitch may post a notice on the Twitch Service if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive a free written notice of a security breach you should notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
IF YOU ARE UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE, THEN PLEASE DO NOT USE OR ACCESS THE TWITCH SERVICE AT ANY TIME OR IN ANY MANNER.
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, Twitch does not knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information from persons under 13 years-of-age. If Twitch learns that personally-identifiable information of persons less than 13-years-of-age has been collected on or through the Twitch Service, then Twitch will take the appropriate steps to delete this information.
If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 13 who has become Twitch Service member, then please contact Twitch at email@example.com to have that child’s account terminated and information deleted.
The following are some resources that may help parents and legal guardians in monitoring and limiting your children’s' access to certain types of material on the Internet. While Twitch does not endorse these products, we provide information about them as a public service to our community.
For Users visiting the Twitch Service from the European Economic Area or other non-U.S. territories, please note that any data you enter into the Twitch Service will be transferred outside the European Economic Area or such other non-U.S. territory for use by Twitch and its affiliates for any of the purposes described herein. In addition, because Twitch operates globally, we may make information we gather available to worldwide business units and affiliates. By providing any data on the Twitch Service, you hereby expressly consent to such transfers of your data to the United States or other countries. The laws in the United States where Twitch is incorporated may not provide the same level of protection for information that Users provide to Twitch or Twitch collects from Users in connection with the Twitch Service as the laws where such Users from the European Economic Area or other non-U.S. territories are located.
In the event that Twitch or assets related to the Twitch Service are acquired by or merged with a third-party entity, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information that we have collected from Users as part of that merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control.
