OneMinuteU Privacy Policy

In conjunction with the OneMinuteU Terms of Service, which includes definitions of certain terms used herein, please read the following to learn more about our privacy policy.

OneMinuteU respects the privacy of its registered users ("OneMinuteUsers"), whether they create and make available their own Content or simply use the OneMinuteU Network to search and access the Content of others. The following policy ("Privacy Policy") is designed to inform you, as a user of the OneMinuteU Network, about the types of information that OneMinuteU may gather and retain about you in connection with your use of the OneMinuteU Network. It also is intended to explain the conditions under which OneMinuteU uses and discloses that information, and your rights in relation to that information.

Please be aware, this policy does not apply to the practices of companies that OneMinuteU does not own or control, or to people that OneMinuteU does not employ or manage.

Acceptance

By accessing or using OneMinuteU or the OneMinuteU Network, you agree, without limitation or qualification, to be bound by and comply with this Privacy Policy, including any other posted guidelines or rules applicable to any website where the OneMinuteU Network is found.

If you do not agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy, you are not permitted to access OneMinuteU or the OneMinuteU Network and you should exit OneMinuteU immediately. We're sorry to see you go.

General

There are two types of information that OneMinuteU may collect: "Non-Personally-Identifying Information" which is information that, without additional information, cannot be directly associated with a specific person or entity; and "Personally-Identifying Information," which is information including a name, email address, phone number, etc. that, without more, can be directly associated with a specific person or entity.
    OneMinuteU collects personal information when you register with OneMinuteU, visit the OneMinuteU Network or the pages of certain OneMinuteU partners. OneMinuteU may combine information about you that we have with information we obtain from business partners or other companies.

    When you register we may ask for information such as your name, email address, birth date, gender, zip code, occupation, industry, and personal interests. Once you register with OneMinuteU and sign-in to our services, you are not anonymous to us; OneMinuteU collects information about your transactions with us and with some of our business partners. OneMinuteU may also ask you for credit card information to process your transactions with us, or to verify your identity or age;
    OneMinuteU automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, cookie information, and the pages and products you request; OneMinuteU uses information for the following general purposes: to customize the advertising and content you see, fulfill your requests for products and services, improve our services, contact you, conduct research, and provide anonymous reporting for internal and external clients.
OneMinuteUsers and Viewers assume all responsibility for any harm or loss of privacy resulting from their voluntary disclosure of personally-identifying information.

Children

Protecting children and their privacy is very important. To aid in that protection, OneMinuteU does not permit children under age 13 to register with OneMinuteU and does not knowingly maintain any personally-identifying information of children under age 13. No part of the OneMinuteU Network is directed to such children. If OneMinuteU learns that a child under the age of 13 has submitted personally-identifiable information to the OneMinuteU Network, we will take the appropriate steps to delete this information.

In the event you permit a child under 13 to access the OneMinuteU Network in defiance of our Terms of Service, please review your responsibilities and liabilities.

OneMinuteU strongly suggests that parents make use of the Parental Controls available through their Internet Provider and/or web browser to prevent unauthorized access to this site.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

OneMinuteU does not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people or nonaffiliated companies except to provide products or services you have requested, when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances:
    We provide the information to trusted partners who work on behalf of or with OneMinuteU under confidentiality agreements. These companies may use your personal information to help OneMinuteU communicate with you about offers from OneMinuteU and our marketing partners. However, unless you have granted permission, these companies do not have any independent right to share this information;
    We respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims;
    We believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of OneMinuteU 's Terms of Service, or as otherwise required by law;
    We will transfer information about you if OneMinuteU is acquired by or merged with another company. We will post a notice on our site before this occurs and/or if a new privacy policy will be applicable as a result;
    OneMinuteU works with vendors, partners, advertisers, and other service providers. In order to bring you the products and services you have requested, we may share your personal information with them. We will not authorize these service providers to share your information other than as necessary to provide the services you have requested or beyond the extent to which you have granted us permission to do so;
    and/or OneMinuteU may display targeted advertisements based on personal information.
Surveys, Contests, and Giveaways

OneMinuteU may offer OneMinuteUers the opportunity to participate in surveys, contests, giveaways and other promotions. Any information submitted in connection with such activities will be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Emails

By registering with OneMinuteU, you are agreeing to accept emails from OneMinuteU regarding the status of your account and emails from the Learning Annex, LLC. You may "opt out" of receiving one or both of these emails at any time, including upon creating your account.

All other email communication from OneMinuteU requires your consent to "opt-in". You have the ability to change these preferences within your account at the time of creation or at anytime thereafter, however, please allow 7-10 days for any changes to take effect. Further, emailing OneMinuteU directly will implicitly authorize a responsive email, which may be generated automatically.

Collection and Use of Information by Third Parties

OneMinuteU does not permit contractors, affiliates, vendors and suppliers from disclosing Personally-Identifying Information received from OneMinuteU, other than in accordance with this Privacy Policy. However, third parties are under no obligation to comply with this Privacy Policy with respect to Personally-Identifying Information that users provide directly to those third parties or that those third parties collect for themselves.

As OneMinuteU is wholly independent of these third parties, this Privacy Policy does not apply to information provided to or gathered by the third parties that operate them. Before visiting a third-party website via a link on the OneMinuteU Network or otherwise, users should inform themselves of the privacy policies and practices, if any, of the third party responsible for that website or wireless website, and should take all steps necessary to protect their privacy.

Cookies, Shared Objects and Web Beacons

OneMinuteU may set and access "cookies", Web Beacons or Shared Objects on your computer.
"Cookies" are strings of information that a website stores on a Viewer's computer so that the site administrator may identify your computer and passively track its activities on the website. This unique number identifies your web browser to our computer system. A cookie will not allow a website to learn any personally identifiable information (such as your real name and address) that you have not otherwise disclosed. Cookies allow us to automatically remember your web browser when you visit the OneMinuteU Network. The use of cookies is an industry standard, and they are currently used on most major Web sites. It is possible to adjust your Web browser preferences to alert you when a cookie is sent to your hard drive, or to refuse cookies altogether. While we do not require you to use cookies, keep in mind that the OneMinuteU Network may not function Properly without the aid of cookies. Therefore, Viewers who refuse or limit cookies assume all responsibility for any loss of functionality.
"Shared Objects" are used to store data on your computer in much the same way that data is stored in a cookie created through a web browser. Various uses of Shared Objects include remembering a user's favorite color, or the last frame of a movie watched. The data can only be read by movies originating from the same domain that created the Shared Object. Shared Objects cannot remember a user's e-mail address or other personal information unless they willingly provide such information.
"Web Beacons" are small image files that we may place on Web pages and within certain email. Working in conjunction with cookies, Web beacons allow us to accurately count the number of unique users who have visited a specific page and the number of times those pages are displayed. We can also use Web Beacons to let us know how many people opened certain types of email. This information is only collected in aggregate form and will not be linked to your personally identifiable information. Keep in mind that any image file on a Web page can act as a Web Beacon. Third-party advertisers may use Web Beacons in their advertisements.

Without cookies, Shared Objects and Web Beacons, it would be difficult for us to know what areas of OneMinuteU have a larger audience than others and give us the needed information to increase the functionality of what we do. Tracking audience size helps us to better understand when to enhance areas of the OneMinuteU Network and/or create and launch new services.

OneMinuteU lets other companies that show advertisements on some of our pages or offer you products and services in connection with the OneMinuteU Network set and access their cookies on your computer. Other companies' use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not this one. Advertisers or other companies do not have access to OneMinuteU 's cookies.

We may use a third-party ad serving technology to help us deliver ads with some of the content you view. This technology may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visit to the website where you selected the video in order to identify and display advertisements that may be of interest to you. In the course of serving these advertisements, a unique cookie may be placed or recognized on your browser.

Editing and Deleting Your Account Information and Preferences

OneMinuteU allows you to edit your account Information, marketing and email preferences at any time. New categories of marketing communications may be added to the Marketing Preferences page from time to time. OneMinuteUers who visit this page can opt out of receiving future marketing communications from these new categories or they can unsubscribe by following instructions contained in the messages they receive. We reserve the right to send you certain communications directly to your account relating to the OneMinuteU Network, such as service announcements or important administrative messages, without offering you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving them.

You can terminate and delete your OneMinuteU account at any time.

Security and Confidentiality With and Within OneMinuteU

OneMinuteU takes the security and confidentiality of information seriously and uses commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to both preserve the security and integrity of any information you transmit to OneMinuteU and to prevent access to personal information about you to other Viewers, OneMinuteUers and unauthorized third parties. However, this is not a guarantee, and if you chose to transmit or provide information to OneMinuteU you do so at your own and you are solely responsible for any losses or damages you incur as a result of any security breach.

Further, these same commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards are utilized to ensure only those employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with your information (to provide products or services to you in order to do their jobs) are able to access your personal information, and then only to the extent necessary.

In the event of a security breach, OneMinuteU will attempt to notify you electronically, including but not limited to via email or a general OneMinuteU Network posting, so that you may take appropriate protective measures. Depending on the laws of your state or location, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive a free written notice of any security breach, or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice, please notify us at:
