Privacy Policy

Video Chat Network (“VCN”) respects your privacy and is seriously committed to protecting the privacy of its users. This Privacy Policy explains how the VCN treats information you submit to VCN. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully prior to your access to and/or use of or your registration for or use of the Services (as defined in VCN’s Terms and Conditions of Use Agreement). If you do not agree to abide by this Privacy Policy, please do not access or use the Site or register as a Member of the Site or Services.

By submitting information to VCN, either by visiting or using the Site or registering for or using the Services, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy and the Terms and Use. This Privacy Policy is governed by the Terms of Use, which includes all disclaimers of warranties and limitation of liabilities. All capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Policy will have the meaning set forth in the Terms of Use.


You represent and warrant that you are either more than 18 years of age or possess legal parental or guardian consent, and are fully able and competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations, affirmations, representations, and warranties set forth in this Agreement. In any case, you affirm that you are over the age of 13, as the Site and Service is not intended for children under 13. If you are under 13 years of age, then please do not use the Site or Service.


The VCN conducts internet-based video conferencing panels (“Panels”) for the purpose of selling the results of Panels and certain limited relevant information about participants to Clients. If you are a user who chooses to participate in a Panel (the “Panelists”), you consent to the use and disclosure of certain demographic information (“Panelist Information”) by Video Chat Network to clients of Video Chat Network, including but not limited to:

Household composition
In the course of your participation in Panels, VCN may display or otherwise provide your and other Panelist Information to VCN Clients. You agree to not disclose any personally identifiable information in the course of your participation in Panels other than Panelist Information; in the event that you disclose any personally identifiable information other than Panelist Information during the course of your participation in a Panel, you agree that VCN shall not be liable for any such disclosure.

Any personally identifiable information or content that you voluntarily disclose online (on discussion boards, in messages and chat areas, within your public profile page, etc.) becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by others. Your username (not your email address) may be displayed to other Users when you upload content or send messages through the Site. Any content that you submit to the Site may be redistributed through the Internet and other media channels, and may be viewed by the general public.


In connection with your use of the Services, you acknowledge that VCN may collect and process personally identifiable information (i.e. information that could be used to contact you, such as full name, postal address, user name and password, phone number and/or e-mail address, collectively “Personal Information”) or Panelist Information in connection with the Service. Such information collected by VCN may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which VCN or its agents maintain facilities. By using the Service, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country. VCN makes no representation or warranty with respect to any duty to permanently store any Personal Information or Panelist Information you may provide. Personal Information provided to VCN shall remain completely confidential subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy; VCN will only disclose Panelist Information to Clients of VCN.


You may request a change to or update the Personal Information and/or Panelist Information you provide VCN by changing your profile in the [“Edit Profile” section of your personal page] or by contacting VCN via email (please include in the Subject line the words “Personal Information/Panelist Information”). It is your responsibility to maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete.


VCN uses your personal information to identify you and, in some cases, to improve and customize the content you see on the Site. Your Personal Information may also be aggregated and used by VCN for market research, project planning, troubleshooting problems, detecting and protecting against error, fraud or other criminal activity, to enforce the Terms of Use or any applicable rules, for other internal purposes, and as otherwise described to you at the time of collection. VCN will obtain your consent for any use of your Personal Information beyond those set forth in this Privacy Policy and the original uses for which you provided your consent.

You agree that VCN may use Personal Information about you to analyze website usage, improve or customize VCN’s Services, customize the Site’s content, and as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy. You also agree that VCN may use your Personal Information to contact you. Unless you specifically opt out, you also agree that VCN may use your personal information to contact you and deliver information to you that, in some cases, is targeted to your interests, such as targeted banner advertisements, administrative notices, product offerings, and communications relevant to your use of the Site or the Services. By accepting the Terms of Use and this Privacy Policy, you expressly agree to receive this information, unless you specifically opt out in applicable circumstances.


Except as expressly provided herein, absent your prior consent, VCN does not share Personal Information with any unrelated third parties absent your prior consent. Additionally, VCN does not permit unrelated third parties to perform “reverse searches” whereby they could identify users from email addresses.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, VCN reserves the right, and you authorize VCN, to share or disclose your Personal Information, including, without limitation, any content, records or electronic communications of any kind, when VCN determines, in its sole discretion, that the disclosure of your personally identifiable information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against you if:

you violate the Terms and Conditions of Use, the Release Form, this Privacy Policy or any applicable Rules;
you interfere with VCN’s or a third party’s rights or property;
you violate any applicable law, rule or regulation;
such disclosure is necessary or required by any applicable law, rule or regulation; and/or
such disclosure is requested by governmental authorities in the event of any
investigation, or instance of local, regional or national emergency. In addition, VCN cannot ensure that all of your private communications and other personal information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. By way of example, without limiting the foregoing, VCN may be forced to disclose Personal Information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access your transmissions or communications. Therefore, although VCN uses industry standard practices to protect your privacy, VCN does not promise, and you should not expect, that your personally identifiable information or private communications will always remain private. However, VCN shall use reasonable commercial and legal efforts to protect its users’ information and to maintain the privacy and anonymity of Members and users.


VCN maintains a strict “no-spam” policy. If you register for the Service, you may receive VCN’s newsletter, notices and/or special offers via email, unless you have requested otherwise at the time of registration or as set forth below.

You may unsubscribe from VCN’s electronic newsletters, notices and/or special offers at any time by following the instructions contained at the end of every such email, or if a third-party vendor provides VCN’s newsletter, in accordance with the instructions provided by such third party. While all efforts are made to insure this information is viewable in all email browsers, there may be cases where certain email browsers do not display the unsubscribe information correctly. If you are having problems unsubscribing please forward the entire newsletter here with the word “UNSUBSCRIBE” in the Subject line and you will be removed within seven (7) business days. Please note that direct replies to any newsletter are processed by computer and are not always viewed by a human.


“Cookies” are alphanumeric identifiers in the form of text files that are inserted and stored by your web browser on your computer’s hard drive. VCN may set and access cookies on your computer to track and store preferential information about you. VCN and third party advertisers gather anonymous information about their users through cookie technology on an aggregate level only. Such aggregated information is used within VCN’s internal organization and is only shared with third party advertisers on an aggregated and non-personally identifiable basis.


Personal information you submit to VCN is password protected for your privacy and security. In the unlikely event that an unauthorized third party compromises VCN’s security measures, VCN will not be responsible for any damages directly or indirectly caused by an unauthorized third party’s ability to view, use or disseminate such information.


The Site may include links to third party websites. Such links are not an endorsement by VCN of those websites and/or the products or services offered on those websites. Third party websites may have different privacy policies, and VCN is not responsible for the privacy practices of those third party websites. If you click on a link to a third party website, VCN encourages you to check the privacy policy of websites, as they may differ substantially from that of this Privacy Policy. VCN makes no representations or warranties nor is VCN responsible for the privacy policies of any websites other than the Site. If you decide to access any third party links appearing on the Site, you do so at your own risk.


VCN welcomes the submission of comments, information and feedback regarding the Site and the Services. However, VCN reserves the right to reject certain kinds of information from you, including any confidential or proprietary information, without prior written consent of VCN. Although VCN does not regularly review your transmissions, submissions or postings, VCN reserves the right (but not the obligation), at its sole discretion and at any time, to edit, to refuse to post, or to remove your transmissions, submissions or postings. You hereby acknowledge and agree that VCN may review transmissions, submissions or postings made by you to determine, in its sole discretion, your compliance with the Terms of Use, this Privacy Policy and any applicable Rules, and that VCN shall have the unrestricted right to use such information for any purpose and without compensation to you.


To review other applicable terms and conditions that apply to this Privacy Policy, including, without limitation, intellectual property rights, disclaimer of warranties, limitation of liability and resolving disputes, please review the Terms and Conditions.

You are encouraged to revisit this Privacy Policy from time to time in order to review any changes that have been made. Your continued use of the Site and any Services following the posting of any such changes shall automatically be deemed your acceptance of all changes.


Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, VCN does not knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information or non-personally-identifiable information on the Site from persons under 13 years of age, and no part of our Site is directed to persons under 13. If you are under 13 years of age, do not use or access the Site at any time or in any manner. If VCN learns that personally identifiable information of persons under 13 years of age has been collected on the Site, then VCN will take the appropriate steps to delete this information.


The Site is hosted in the United States. If you are a User accessing the Site from the European Union, Asia, or any other region with laws or regulations governing personal data collection, use, and disclosure, that differ from United States laws, please be advised that through your continued use of the Site, which is governed solely by U.S. law, this Privacy Policy, and our Terms and Conditions, you are transferring your personal information to the United States and you consent to that transfer.


In the event that VCN is acquired by or merged with a third party entity, or sells all or substantially all of its assets, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information and content we have received and collected from our Users and Members as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control. In the unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors’ rights generally, we may not be able to control how your personal information is treated, transferred, or used.
