4.1 Cookies. Fantomas Video uses cookies (including Flash cookies) to store user preferences, account status, and traffic origination and to record session information, for purposes including but not limited to (i) ensuring that users are not repeatedly offered the same advertisements and (ii) customizing newsletter, advertising, and Web page content based on browser type and user profile information. A “cookie” is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from an Internet server and stored in your computer. You may be able to configure your browser to accept or reject all or some cookies (other than Flash cookies) or notify you when a cookie (other than a Flash cookie) is set - each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences. However, you must enable cookies from Fantomas Video to use most functions offered through the Fantomas Video Services.


Flash cookies (also known as “local shared objects” or “LSOs”) cannot be rejected, disabled, turned off, opted out, or deleted in the same way as regular cookies such as HTML cookies. Flash cookies may remain on your computer even after you have rejected, disabled, opted out, or deleted regular cookies. For information on how to manage and remove Flash cookies, please visit:


Please note that third-party advertisers may set and use their own Flash cookies for user tracking purposes when serving and managing ads on the Fantomas Video Services.


4.2 Web Beacons. In addition, Fantomas Video may use so-called “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “web bugs,” “clear GIFs,” etc. (collectively, “Web Beacons”) to collect information about your usage of the Fantomas Video Services. These are small electronic images embedded in web content (including online ads) and email messages and are ordinarily not visible to users. Like cookies, Web Beacons enable us to track pages and content (including ads) accessed and viewed by users on the Fantomas Video Services. Also, when we send HTML-formatted (as opposed to plain text) emails to our users, Web Beacons may be embedded in such emails to allow us to monitor readership levels so that we can identify aggregate trends and individual usage to provide our users with more relevant content or offers. Web beacons in emails may recognize specific activities, such as when an email was opened, how many times an email was forwarded, which links in the email were clicked on, etc. Web Beacons cannot be declined when delivered via a regular web page. However, Web Beacons can be refused when delivered via email. If you do not wish to receive our Web Beacons via email, you will need to disable HTML images or refuse HTML (select Text only) emails via your email software.


4.3 Third-Party Analytics. Fantomas Video implements several Google Analytics features that support Display Advertising. You may opt out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads using the Ads Settings or by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.


Fantomas Video utilizes:


  • “Remarketing with Google Analytics” to advertise online. In addition, third-party vendors, such as Google, show these ads on sites across the Internet and Fantomas Video and third-party vendors use both first-party and third-party cookies to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on user visits to the Fantomas Video Services.

  • “Google Display Network Impression Reporting”, which uses both first-party and third-party cookies to report how ad impressions, uses of ad services, and interactions with the ad impressions and ad services are related to user visits to the Fantomas Video Services.

  • “Demographics and Interest Reporting”, which collects data based on user demographics and interests, including but not limited to: age, gender, affinity category behavior, and other category behavior. Data collected from the Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting function is used to enrich the user experience and provide more relevant services and advertisements to users.

Fantomas Video may use other third-party analytics services to collect Non-Personal Data, including but not limited to session information, key events, device type, location, language, timestamp, platform, and time zone. We use these services to collect and compare information about the user base and user visits, as well as to improve the Fantomas Video Services.


4.4 Third-Party Advertisers. Please note that Fantomas Video may allow thirty-party advertisers (including those that are serving their own ads through the Fantomas Video Services, as well as those so-called “network advertisers” or “ad networks” who are serving and managing ads for others) to set and use their own cookies (including Flash cookies) and/or Web Beacons on your computer when you use the Fantomas Video Services. These cookies and Web Beacons allow third-party advertisers to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement and to compile information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw their advertisements and determine which ads are clicked on. The information so compiled allows third-party advertisers to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you.


Use of cookies (including Flash cookies) and Web Beacons by third-party advertisers is governed by the privacy policies of those advertisers - not our Privacy Policy. Please note that Fantomas Video has no control over what information is collected by third-party advertisers or how they may use the information. The privacy policies and data practices of such third-party advertisers may significantly differ from those of Fantomas Video, and Fantomas Video makes no representation or warranty whatsoever about third-party advertisers’ data policies and practices. We recommend that you read the privacy policies for the other third-party advertisers if you have any concerns about their use of your personal information or data collection on you.

Once again, we have no control over what information is collected by such third parties or how they may use the information. The privacy policies and data practices of such third parties may significantly differ from ours, and we make no representation or warranty whatsoever about their data policies and practices. Your communications and interactions with such third parties are solely between you and them and are at your own risk.


5. Data Retention


Fantomas Video may retain your Personal Data and Non-Personal Data as long as you continue to use and are registered through the Fantomas Video Services. You may request that we delete your Personal Data and close your account at any time by emailing us at . However, we may retain your Personal Data for an additional period of time, as permitted or required under applicable law, to conduct audits, prevent fraud and abuse, improve the Fantomas Video Services, comply with legal obligations, maintain security, enforce our Terms of Service, or for any other legitimate and lawful business purpose. In addition, after your account has been closed we will continue to retain your Non-Personal Data and any Personal Data that has been anonymized, aggregated, or modified so that it can no longer reasonably be used to identify you.


6. Service Providers


We rely on certain third-party services for the operation of the Fantomas Video Services, such as credit card payment processing, order processing, fulfillment and shipment, data storage and security, etc. The security of your personal information is important to us. Please keep in mind that, to the extent a third-party service provider needs to access your information in order to perform services for us, we share your information with that provider. However, we do require that any third-party service providers limit their use of your information solely to providing services to us and that they maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of your information and not make unauthorized use or disclosure of the information.


For example, if you purchase a physical product through the Fantomas Video Services, we use a third-party vendor to pack and ship your order. Our fulfillment vendor will be given access to your full name and shipping address solely for the purpose of shipping your order. We require our fulfillment vendor not to retain, share, store, or use your information for any other purpose.


As another example, we use Recurly, Inc. (“Recurly”) in certain instances to provide billing, membership management, and other payment related services. When you check out through any of the Fantomas Video Services that utilize Recurly, you will be asked to enter your First Name, Last Name, Credit Card Information, Billing Address, and Shipping Address as necessary to complete your transaction. Fantomas Video does not store any payment information in our database. Rather, we rely on Recurly, a PCI-DSS Level 1 compliant service merchant provider, to store all payment related data. For recurring payments, Recurly may utilize an "account updater" feature which updates your payment records automatically when there is a change to your chosen payment method on file, such as a change in address or a new account number on your credit card. Recurly is prohibited from using your Personal Data for any other purpose other than providing the above-described contracted services.


7. Third-Party Sites


The Fantomas Video Services may contain links to third-party sites or applications. Unless expressly otherwise stated by Fantomas Video, Fantomas Video is not responsible for the privacy policies and/or practices of linked third-party sites or applications. When you leave the Fantomas Video Services and go to a third-party site or application, our Privacy Policy will no longer apply, and any information collected from or about you on the third-party site or application will be governed by the privacy policy of that third party. Third-party sites’ or applications’ privacy policies and data practices may be substantially different from those of Fantomas Video. They may send their own cookies, web beacons, etc. to your computer or mobile device and may collect data about you and make use of the data in ways that we would not. You access such third-party sites or applications entirely at your own risk. You should always read the privacy policy of a third-party site or application and use caution before disclosing any personal information.


For example, some of the Fantomas Video Services allow you to check out through PayPal. If you choose to use PayPal, your use of the PayPal service (including any personal information you submit to PayPal) is subject to and governed by PayPal’s privacy policy and not Fantomas Videos. Also, when you purchase any Fantomas Video products or services from a third-party app store (e.g., Apple/iTunes), your purchase is with the third-party app store and not with Fantomas Video, and accordingly, any personal information you submit to the third-party app store in connection with the purchase is subject to and governed by the privacy policy of the third-party app store and not Fantomas Video’s.


8. Correcting, Updating, or Removing Information


You may access, modify, or remove any of your personal information (except for the email address linked to a user account) at any time by logging into your account and accessing the “My Account” section.

Fantomas Video takes precautions to ensure that user account information is kept private. We use commercially reasonable measures to protect user information that is stored within our database, and we restrict access to user information to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as our customer service personnel and technical staff. However, we do not guarantee that these efforts will completely protect user account information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time. We will endeavor to notify users in the event that the security of their personal information is breached or compromised. By submitting personal information through any of the Fantomas Video Services, you expressly consent to receiving our notification regarding any breach or compromise, or suspected breach or compromise, of the security of your personal information, by email or postal mail, as we deem appropriate and as required by law.
