  • Your You3DView Account. For some activities on You3DView, like uploading videos, posting comments, flagging videos, or watching restricted videos, you need a You3DView Account. We ask for some personal information when you create an account, including your email address and a password, which is used to protect your account from unauthorized access.
  • Usage Information. When you use You3DView, we may record information about your usage of the site, such as the channels, groups and favorites you subscribe to, which other users you communicate with, the videos you watch, the frequency and size of data transfers, and information you display about yourself as well as information you click on in You3DView (including UI elements, settings). If you are logged in, we may associate that information with your You3DView Account. In order to ensure the quality of our service to you, we may place a tag (also called a "web beacon") in HTML-based customer support emails or other communications with you in order to confirm delivery.
  • Content Uploaded to Site. Any personal information or image content that you voluntarily disclose online (e.g., image comments, your profile page) may be collected and used by others. If you download the You3DView Uploader, your copy includes a unique application number. This number, and information about your installation of the Uploader (version number, language) will be sent to You3DView when the Uploader automatically checks for updates and will be used to update your version of the Uploader.


  • If you submit personal information to You3DView, we may use that information to operate, maintain, and improve the features and functionality of You3DView, and to process any flagging activity or other communication you send to us.
  • We do not use your email address or other personal information to send commercial or marketing messages without your consent. We may use your email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major You3DView changes or for customer service purposes). You also can choose how often You3DView sends you email updates in your You3DView Account settings page.
  • We use cookies, web beacons, and log file information to: (a) store information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit You3DView; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information; (c) monitor the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns; (d) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed; and (e) track your entries, submissions, and status in promotions, sweepstakes, and contests.

This may include the date you opened your You3DView Account, the date you last logged into your You3DView Account, your age (if you choose to make it public), the country and the number of videos you have watched.
  • Your You3DView Account name, not your email address, is displayed to other users when you engage in certain activities on You3DView, such as when you upload videos or send messages through You3DView. Other users can contact you by leaving a message or comment on the site.

If you choose to add certain features to your You3DView Account channel page, then these features and your activity associated with these features will be displayed to other users and may be aggregated and shared with your friends or other users. Such shared activity may include your favorite videos, videos you rated and videos that you have uploaded.

The privacy notices of those services govern the use of your personal information associated with them.
