3. A Note About Children. We do not intentionally gather Personal Data from users who are under the age of 13. If a child under 13 submits Personal Data to Knotch and we learn that the Personal Data is the information of a child under 13, we will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible. If you believe that we might have any Personal Data from a child under 13, please contact us at email@example.com.
5. Types of Data We Collect. “Personal Data” is defined in EU Directive 95/46/EC (the “EU Directive”) as data that allows someone to identify or contact you, whether simply from that information alone, or in combination with any other information which that person controls, including, for example, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, as well as any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing data. “Anonymous Data” means data that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Data; Anonymous Data does not, by itself, permit the identification of individual persons. The EU Directive gives you the right to access information we hold about you. If you do wish to request access to the information we hold about you in accordance with the EU Directive, this access request may be subject to a fee of £10 to meet our reasonable costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you. If you wish to make such a request, please contact us at the email address listed in section 1. We collect Personal Data and Anonymous Data, as described below.
Information You Provide to Us.
We may collect Personal Data from you, such as your first and last name, e-mail, company name, and password when you create an account to log in to our Site (“Account”). When you respond to a Survey, we may collect Personal Data from you, such as your e-mail, which will be collected along with your survey responses and other information as further described below. If you provide us feedback or contact us via e-mail, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail, in order to send you a reply. We may also collect Personal Data at other points in our Site, Surveys, or Services that state that Personal Data is being collected.
Information Collected via Technology.
Log Files. As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically on our Site and store it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the Site, track users’ movements around the Site, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, and better tailor our Services to our users’ needs. For example, some of the information may be collected so that when you visit the Site again, it will recognize you and the information could then be used to serve information appropriate to your interests.
Surveys. Surveys embedded on third party websites gather information regarding your activities on such third party websites such as the amount of time you spent on a webpage, how far down the webpage you scrolled down, and how long you watched a video on the webpage. Surveys also collect your IP address, determine your city location based on your IP address, and collect aggregate demographic information through the use of Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. Surveys also collect information about the device you are using to view such third party websites such as the device type, the browser type, operating system, and other device information.
Pixel Tags. In addition, we use “Pixel Tags” (also referred to as clear Gifs, Web beacons, or Web bugs). Pixel Tags are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to Cookies, that are used to track online movements of web users. In contrast to Cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, Pixel Tags are embedded invisibly in webpages. Pixel Tags also allow us to send e-mail messages in a format users can read, and they tell us whether e-mails have been opened to ensure that we are sending only messages that are of interest to our users.
Do Not Track. Some web browsers may transmit “do not track” signals to the websites and other online services with which your web browser communicates. There is no standard that governs what, if anything, websites should do when they receive these signals. We do not currently respond to “do not track” signals from web browsers.
Flash LSOs. When we post videos, third parties may use local shared objects, known as “Flash Cookies,” to store your preferences for volume control or to personalize certain video features. Flash Cookies are different from browser Cookies because of the amount and type of data and how the data is stored. Cookie management tools provided by your browser will not remove Flash Cookies.

Google Analytics Advertising Features. The Site, Surveys, and Services may make use of Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting and DoubleClick Campaign Manager integration. Knotch and third-party vendors, inclduing Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to report how your ad impressions, other uses of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services are related to your website browsing activity. Knotch utilizes demographics and interest reporting information to recognize and understand user preferences; make improvements to the Site, Surveys, and Services; provide survey response information to third party companies (as further described below), and for other business purposes.
Information Collected from Third Parties.
