Data & Privacy Policy

This site is part of the Nightlife Media ("NM") network of media services, sites & applications; and this policy describes the information we process to support these services and other products and features offered by NM.

At NM we take your privacy very seriously. Because of this we want to provide you with explicit information on how we collect, gather, and identify information during your use of our products and services. This information may be expanded or updated as we change or develop our services. For this reason, we recommend that you review this policy from time-to-time to see if anything has changed. Your continued use of our products and services signifies your acceptance of our privacy policy.

What information do we collect and how do we use it?

Personally Identifiable Information refers to information that tells us specifically who you are, such as your name, phone number, email or postal address. In many cases we need this information to provide our products and services to you. The types of information we collect depend on how you use our Products.

The amount of Personally Identifiable Information that you choose to disclose to NM is completely up to you. The only way we know something about you personally is if you provide it to us in conjunction with one of our services.

NM collects information on our users in three ways: by your voluntary submissions (for instance, if you request a reservation; sign up for an account or one of our email newsletters) through surveys, sweepstakes and/or contest entries; and through cookie technology.

In our effort to provide personalization and opportunities for prizes and services, we may at times ask you to submit information such as your name, email address, and mobile phone numer or to share your interests and hobbies with us. You never have to answer these questions, and you can decline this exchange of information on any media site or application on the Internet - not just ours - at any time. However, if you should choose to withhold requested information, we may not be able to provide you with some of the services dependent upon the collection of this information, such as reservation requests, a sweepstakes entry, or the purchase and shipment of products and prizes when you visit our network.

The information NM collects is used in a variety of ways: for internal review; to improve the content of our products, thus making your user experience more valuable; to notify you about updates to the service; and to let you know about products and services that you may be interested in.

Email & Mobile Phone: If you have provided us your email address or mobile phone number, NM periodically sends promotional emails and text/mobile phone messages to its subscribers about services offered by NM and its partners. If you do not wish to receive email information from NM, please let us know by emailing us at: remove@NightlifeMedia.net or by writing us at Nightlife Media, 625 N. Michigan Ave, Suite 1000, Chicago, IL 60611.

Things you and others do and provide.
We collect the content, communications and other information you provide when you use our Products, including when you sign up for an account, create or share content, and message or communicate with others. This can include information in or about the content you provide (like metadata), such as the location of a photo or the date a file was created. It can also include what you see through features we provide, such as our camera, so we can do things like suggest masks and filters that you might like, or give you tips on using camera formats. Our systems automatically process content and communications you and others provide to analyze context and what's in them.

Data with special protections: You can choose to provide information in your NM profile fields about your religious views, political views, who you are "interested in," or your health. This and other information (such as racial or ethnic origin, philosophical beliefs or trade union membership) could be subject to special protections under the laws of your country.

Networks and connections. We collect information about the people, Pages, accounts, hashtags and groups you are connected to and how you interact with them across our Products, such as people you communicate with the most or groups you are part of. We also collect contact information if you choose to upload, sync or import it from a device (such as an address book or call log or SMS log history), which we use for things like helping you and others find people you may know and for the other purposes listed below.

Your usage. We collect information about how you use our Products, such as the types of content you view or engage with; the features you use; the actions you take; the people or accounts you interact with; and the time, frequency and duration of your activities. For example, we log when you're using and have last used our Products, and what posts, videos and other content you view on our Products. We also collect information about how you use features like our camera.

Information about transactions made on our Products. If you use our Products for purchases or other financial transactions (such as when you make a purchase to buy tickets, book a reservation, or make a donation); we collect information about the purchase or transaction. This includes payment information, such as your credit or debit card number and other card information; other account and authentication information; and billing, shipping and contact details.

Things others do and information they provide about you. We also receive and analyze content, communications and information that other people provide when they use our Products. This can include information about you, such as when others share or comment on a photo of you, send a message to you, or upload, sync or import your contact information.

Device Information
As described below, we collect information from and about the computers, phones, connected TVs and other web-connected devices you use that integrate with our Products, and we combine this information across different devices you use. For example, we use information collected about your use of our Products on your phone to better personalize the content (including ads) or features you see when you use our Products on another device, such as your laptop or tablet, or to measure whether you took an action in response to an ad we showed you on your phone on a different device.

Information we obtain from these devices includes:

Device attributes: information such as the operating system, hardware and software versions, battery level, signal strength, available storage space, browser type, app and file names and types, and plugins.

Device operations: information about operations and behaviors performed on the device, such as whether a window is foregrounded or backgrounded, or mouse movements (which can help distinguish humans from bots).

Identifiers: unique identifiers, device IDs, and other identifiers, such as from games, apps or accounts you use, and Family Device IDs (or other identifiers unique to NM Company Products associated with the same device or account).

Device signals: Bluetooth signals, and information about nearby Wi-Fi access points, beacons, and cell towers.

Data from device settings: information you allow us to receive through device settings you turn on, such as access to your GPS location, camera or photos.

Network and connections: information such as the name of your mobile operator or ISP, language, time zone, mobile phone number, IP address, connection speed and, in some cases, information about other devices that are nearby or on your network, so we can do things like help you stream a video from your phone to your TV.

Cookie data: data from cookies stored on your device, including cookie IDs and settings.

Information from partners.
Advertisers, app developers, and publishers can send us information through NM Business Tools they use, including our social plug-ins (such as the Like button), NM Login, our APIs and SDKs, or the NM pixel. These partners provide information about your activities off NM—including information about your device, websites you visit, purchases you make, the ads you see, and how you use their services—whether or not you have a NM account or are logged into NM. For example, a game developer could use our API to tell us what games you play, or a business could tell us about a purchase you made in its store. We also receive information about your online and offline actions and purchases from third-party data providers who have the rights to provide us with your information.

Partners receive your data when you visit or use their services or through third parties they work with. We require each of these partners to have lawful rights to collect, use and share your data before providing any data to us.

How do we use this information?

Provide, personalize and improve our Products.
We use the information we have to deliver our Products, including to personalize features and content (including your Social Feed, Business Feed, and ads) and make suggestions for you (such as content, groups or events you may be interested in or topics you may want to follow) on and off our Products. To create personalized Products that are unique and relevant to you, we use your connections, preferences, interests and activities based on the data we collect and learn from you and others (including any data with special protections you choose to provide); how you use and interact with our Products; and the people, places, or things you're connected to and interested in on and off our Products.

Information across NM Products and devices: We connect information about your activities on different NM Products and devices to provide a more tailored and consistent experience on all NM Products you use, wherever you use them. For example, we can suggest that you join a group on NM that includes people you follow on Musicland or Nightlife Television or communicate with using messengers. We can also make your experience more seamless, for example, by automatically filling in your registration information (such as your phone number) from one NM Product when you sign up for an account on a different Product.

Location-related information: We use location-related information-such as your current location, where you live, the places you like to go, and the businesses and people you're near-to provide, personalize and improve our Products, including ads, for you and others. Location-related information can be based on things like precise device location (if you've allowed us to collect it), IP addresses, and information from your and others' use of NM Products (such as check-ins or events you attend).

Product research and development: We use the information we have to develop, test and improve our Products, including by conducting surveys and research, and testing and troubleshooting new products and features.

Face, Location, & Consumer Product recognition: We use face, location, & product recognition technology to recognize you & public figures (such as celebrities & entertainers), locations (such as Times Square New York) and consumer products (such as a Gucci purse; in photos, videos and camera experiences. The face-recognition templates we create may constitute data with special protections under the laws of your country.

Ads and other sponsored content: We use the information we have about you-including information about your interests, actions and connections-to select and personalize ads, offers and other sponsored content that we show you.

Provide measurement, analytics, and other business services.
We use the information we have (including your activity off our Products, such as the websites you visit and ads you see) to help advertisers and other partners measure the effectiveness and distribution of their ads and services, and understand the types of people who use their services and how people interact with their websites, apps, and services.

Promote safety, integrity and security.
We use the information we have to verify accounts and activity, combat harmful conduct, detect and prevent spam and other bad experiences, maintain the integrity of our Products, and promote safety and security on and off of NM Products. For example, we use data we have to investigate suspicious activity or violations of our terms or policies.

Communicate with you.
We use the information we have to send you marketing communications, communicate with you about our Products, and let you know about our policies and terms. We also use your information to respond to you when you contact us.

How is this information shared and with whom does NM share information
Your information is shared with others in the following ways:

People and accounts you share and communicate with
When you share and communicate using our Products, you choose the audience for what you share. For example, when you post on NM, you select the audience for the post, such as a group, all of your friends, the public, or a customized list of people. Similarly, when you use private messaging to communicate with people or businesses, those people and businesses can see the content you send. Your network can also see actions you have taken on our Products, including engagement with ads and sponsored content. We also let other accounts see who has viewed their NM posts.

Public information can be seen by anyone, on or off our Products, including if they don't have an account. This includes your profile name & username; any information you share with a public audience; information in your public profile on NM; and content you share on a NM Page, or any other public forum, such as NM Marketplace. You, other people using NM, and we can provide access to or send public information to anyone on or off our Products, including in other NM Company Products, in search results, or through tools and APIs. Public information can also be seen, accessed, reshared or downloaded through third-party services such as search engines, APIs, and offline media such as TV, and by apps, websites and other services that integrate with our Products.

Content others share or reshare about you
You should consider who you choose to share with, because people who can see your activity on our Products can choose to share it with others on and off our Products, including people and businesses outside the audience you shared with. For example, when you share a post or send a message to specific friends or accounts, they can download, screenshot, or reshare that content to others across or off our Products, in person or in virtual reality experiences. Also, when you comment on someone else's post or react to their content, your comment or reaction is visible to anyone who can see the other person's content, and that person can change the audience later.

People can also use our Products to create and share content about you with the audience they choose. For example, people can share a photo of you in a post, mention or tag you at a location in a post, or share information about you in their posts or messages.

Information about your active status or presence on our Products.
People in your networks can see signals telling them whether you are active on our Products, including whether you are currently active or when you last used our Products.

Apps, websites, and third-party integrations on or using our Products.
When you choose to use third-party apps, websites, or other services that use, or are integrated with, our Products, they can receive information about what you post or share. For example, when you play a game with your NM friends or use a NM Comment or Share button on a website, the game developer or website can receive information about your activities in the game or receive a comment or link that you share from the website on NM. Also, when you download or use such third-party services, they can access your public profile on NM, and any information that you share with them. Information collected by these third-party services is subject to their own terms and policies, not this one.

Devices and operating systems providing native versions of NM products or apps (i.e. where we have not developed our own first-party apps) will have access to all information you choose to share with them, including information your friends share with you, so they can provide our core functionality to you.

New owner.
If the ownership or control of all or part of our Products or their assets changes, we may transfer your information to the new owner.

Sharing with Third-Party Partners
We work with third-party partners who help us provide and improve our Products or who use NM Business Tools to grow their businesses, which makes it possible to operate our companies and provide valued services to people around the world. Here are the types of third parties we share information with:

Partners who use our analytics services.
We provide aggregated statistics and insights that help people and businesses understand how people are engaging with their posts, listings, Pages, videos and other content on and off the NM Products. For example, Page admins and NM business profiles receive information about the number of people or accounts who viewed, reacted to, or commented on their posts, as well as aggregate demographic and other information that helps them understand interactions with their Page or account.

Advertisers.
We provide advertisers with reports about the kinds of people seeing their ads and how their ads are performing, but we don't share information that personally identifies you (information such as your name or email address that by itself can be used to contact you or identifies who you are) unless you give us permission. For example, we provide general demographic and interest information to advertisers (for example, that an ad was seen by a woman between the ages of 25 and 34 who lives in Dubai and likes electronic dance music) to help them better understand their audience. We also confirm which NM ads led you to make a purchase or take an action with an advertiser.

Measurement partners.
We share information about you with companies that aggregate it to provide analytics and measurement reports to our partners.

Partners offering goods and services in our Products.
When you subscribe to receive premium content, or buy something from a seller in our Products, the content creator or seller can receive your public information and other information you share with them, as well as the information needed to complete the transaction, including shipping and contact details.

Vendors and service providers.
We provide information and content to vendors and service providers who support our business, such as by providing technical infrastructure services, analyzing how our Products are used, providing customer service, facilitating payments or conducting surveys.

Researchers and academics.
We also provide information and content to research partners and academics to conduct research that advances innovation that support our business or mission, and enhances discovery and innovation on topics of general social welfare, technological advancement, public interest, health and well-being.

Law enforcement or legal requests.
We share information with law enforcement or in response to legal requests in the circumstances outlined below.

From time to time we share information with other reputable organizations for marketing purposes or the information is used by NM to contact consumers for its own marketing endeavors. As a valued consumer, we offer you the opportunity to "opt out", or request not to accept these marketing opportunities. If at any time you change your mind and do not want NM to share your email address, mobile phone number or home address with other companies and/or organizations, or would simply like to be removed from the list, please let us know by emailing us at: remove@NightlifeMedia.net or by writing us at Nightlife Media., 625 N. Michigan Ave, Suite 1000, Chicago, IL 60611.

Sweepstakes/Contests
From time-to-time NM, along with other reputable companies, provides sweepstakes and other contests for the enjoyment of our users. By participating in the contest or sweepstakes and answering any and all questions, the user understands that NM and/or the involved company(s) may use the information obtained for marketing purposes. Children under 18 may not participate in any sweepstakes or contest promoted by NM.

Cookies & Advertising
NM may automatically collect non-personally identifiable information and data through the use of "cookies." Cookies are small text files a Web site uses to recognize repeat users, facilitate the user's ongoing access to the site and facilitate the use of the site. "Cookies" also allow a site to track usage behavior and compile site usage information that will allow for the improvement of content and target advertising.

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Web sites. These companies may use aggregated information (i.e. not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements on this site and other sites about goods and services that may be of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp

Some sites in the Nightlife Media Network also use a third party to collect non-personally identifiable information using web beacons.

About Children's Privacy
NM is committed to the safety of our children. Children under 18 may not participate in any sweepstakes or contests on NM. Also, we encourage children under the age of 18 to ask a parent for permission before providing or sending any information to anyone online.

How can I manage or delete information about me?
We store data until it is no longer necessary to provide our services and NM Products, or until your account is deleted - whichever comes first. This is a case-by-case determination that depends on things like the nature of the data, why it is collected and processed, and relevant legal or operational retention needs.

When you delete your account, we delete things you have posted, such as your photos and status updates, and you won't be able to recover that information later. Information that others have shared about you isn't part of your account and won't be deleted.

How do we respond to law enforcement & legal requests?
We access, preserve and share your information with regulators, law enforcement or others:

In response to a legal request (like a search warrant, court order or subpoena) if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so. This may include responding to legal requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States when we have a good-faith belief that the response is required by law in that jurisdiction, affects users in that jurisdiction, and is consistent with internationally recognized standards.

When we have a good-faith belief it is necessary to: detect, prevent and address fraud, unauthorized use of the Products, violations of our terms or policies, or other harmful or illegal activity; to protect ourselves (including our rights, property or Products), you or others, including as part of investigations or regulatory inquiries; or to prevent death or imminent bodily harm. For example, if relevant, we provide information to and receive information from third-party partners about the reliability of your account to prevent fraud, abuse and other harmful activity on and off our Products.

Information we receive about you (including financial transaction data related to purchases made with NM) can be accessed and preserved for an extended period when it is the subject of a legal request or obligation, governmental investigation, or investigations of possible violations of our terms or policies, or otherwise to prevent harm. We also retain information from accounts disabled for terms violations for at least a year to prevent repeat abuse or other term violations.

How do we operate and transfer data as part of our global services?
We share information globally, both internally within the NM Companies, and externally with our partners and with those you connect and share with around the world in accordance with this policy. Your information may, for example, be transferred or transmitted to, or stored and processed in the United States or other countries outside of where you live for the purposes as described in this policy. These data transfers are necessary to provide the services set forth in the NM Terms and to globally operate and provide our Products to you. We utilize standard contract clauses, rely on the European Commission's adequacy decisions about certain countries, as applicable, and obtain your consent for these data transfers to the United States and other countries.

How will we notify you of changes to this policy?
We'll notify you before we make changes to this policy and give you the opportunity to review the revised policy before you choose to continue using our Products.

Your Consent
By using our products & services, you consent to the collection and use of the information described in this Privacy Policy by NM.
