1. Our Privacy Intent
EveryoneCounts is not interested in tracking users or selling user information. Our intention is to use your information to either provide you with the service you have requested or to gain information on how our site is being used so we can improve how we provide you that service. If we ever decide to display advertisements on our website, we will base our advertisements on the content of the website pages rather than personal or tracking information about you.

4. Information Collected By the Websites
We collect two types of information from users of the Websites: personal information, described below, and non-personal information such as information about traffic patterns on the Websites.
5. Personal Information
To access certain portions of the Websites, including the portions where the Services are offered, we require you to register and select a username and password. Some personal data is collected during the registration process. We may then ask for additional information, including personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information.
To process your order when you make a purchase on one of the Websites when you subscribe or participate in our Services, and/or when you enter a contest or other promotion, we may ask you for certain personal information such as your name, address, email address, or credit card number. Providing personal information in these instances is solely your choice; you do not need to provide such information, make purchases, or enter such contests to browse our Websites as a Visitor.
6. How We Use Your Personal Information
We use the information collected on the Websites for a variety of purposes, including, but not limited to, running the Websites and the Services and contacting users. The Websites and the Services may also make available to other Registered Users information provided by you during registration, such as your screen name, for example when you participate in our support groups or contribute to forum discussions.
We may use your information to communicate back to you, to update you on products, services, and benefits, to personalize the Websites for you, to contact you for market research, or to provide you with marketing information, newsletters, or other information we think would be of particular interest. In addition, if you make a purchase on any of the Websites, we may send you order and shipping confirmation emails. We will always give you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving such materials.
You can remove your email address from our email list at any time by following the procedures set forth in Section 9 below (“Opt-Out Procedures”) or by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in every email from EveryoneCounts.World. In addition, you can modify your information or change your preferences, as set forth in Section 10 below (“Reviewing or Changing Your Information”).
Information obtained through the Websites and/or the Services may be intermingled with and used in conjunction with information obtained through sources other than our Websites, including both offline and online sources.
7. Discussions and Community Tools
The Websites and the Services may make chat rooms, forums, bulletin boards, newsgroups, and other community tools available to Registered Users and/or Visitors. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information for other users to view and for EveryoneCounts.World to use. Please do not disclose any personally identifiable information, including without limitation your full name or email address, in these publicly accessible areas of the Websites or the Services. Please be considerate and respectful of others while using any chat rooms, forums, or message boards to share your opinion.
8. Non-Personal Data
In some cases, we may collect non-personal information. Examples of this type of information include the type of Internet browser you are using, the type of computer operating system application software, and peripherals you are using, and the domain name of the website from which you linked to our Site. We use your information on an aggregated basis to do such things as operate and enhance our Websites.

EveryoneCounts.World utilizes Google Analytics for aggregated, anonymized website traffic analysis. In order to track your EveryoneCounts.World session usage, EveryoneCounts.World places a Google Analytics cookie (_ga) with a randomly generated ClientID in your browser. This ID is anonymized and contains no identifiable information such as email, phone number, name, etc. EveryoneCounts.World uses Google Analytics to track aggregated website behavior, such as what pages you looked at, for how long, etc. This information is important for improving the EveryoneCounts.World user experience and determining EveryoneCounts.World’s site effectiveness. If you wish to remove Google Analytics from your site experience, you can install the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-On.
10. Opt Out Procedures

12. Sharing of Your Information
We may employ third parties to perform services or functions on our behalf to improve our Websites, merchandising, marketing and promotional efforts, communications, or other services. Those third parties may include authorized contractors, consultants, and other companies working with us. They only have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, and they may not share any personal information with others or use it for any other purpose than providing or improving EveryoneCounts’ services and offerings.
Providing a secure site is essential for your peace of mind and trust in EveryoneCounts.World. We have installed encryption software conforming to the Secure Socket Layers (SSL) protocol to safeguard all of the commerce-related (i.e. credit card and billing address) information you send to us.

Where appropriate, we take reasonable measures to determine that our users are adults of legal age and to inform minors not to submit such information to the Websites or the Services or in response to advertisements. If you are concerned that personal information may have been inadvertently provided to or collected by EveryoneCounts.World, please contact us immediately at email@example.com so that we may take appropriate steps to remove such information from our site.

17. Applicable Law
Your Privacy Rights (California Residents) – Online Privacy Protection Policy for California Residents – (“Shine the Light” Law)
Effective as of January 1, 2005, California’s “Shine the Light” law (Cal. Civ. Code Sections 1798.80, et seq.) provides California residents with the right to receive certain disclosures when personal information that has been collected online is shared with third parties for direct marketing purposes.
If you are a California resident and you provided personal information to EveryoneCounts.World through a website in the past, and/or if you do so in the future, you are entitled to submit a request in writing to EveryoneCounts for a description of the information we may have provided to third parties. To submit your written request, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and put the following words in the subject line of the email: “California Privacy Request.”
Within 30 days after receipt of your request, we will send you a list of the categories of personal information disclosed to third parties during the immediately preceding calendar year, along with the names and addresses of the third parties who actually received such information, if any.
We reserve our right not to respond to requests sent more than once in a calendar year.
Please note that the California “Shine the Light” law does not cover all aspects of online information sharing, and our policy relates only to information covered by the law.
18. California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) Privacy Notice
This Privacy Notice applies to California consumers and is a supplement of the EveryoneCounts.World Privacy Statement.
Personal Information Collected
We collect information that identifies, relates to, describes, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household (“CCPA personal information”). We have collected the following categories of CCPA personal information from consumers within the last twelve (12) months:
- Identifiers: “Identifiers” covers a broad range of information, including things like name, email address, billing address, and IP address. We collect personal information that falls into this category. For example, for subscribers we have an email address and payment information (such as a credit card). We collect IP addresses when you connect to our service online. These sorts of identifiers are connected to your EveryoneCounts.World account. There are also identifiers we use for purposes like advertising (third party advertising cookies on our website) that we do not associate with your account, but that can be used to reach you with promotional messages on other websites and applications.
- Internet or other electronic network activity information: Our service is an online service, so we collect CCPA personal information in this category, such as your interactions and activities within our service.
- Geolocation data: Our streaming application does not collect precise geolocation data from GPS sensors. However, we do collect IP addresses so we can determine your general location to give you a better first interaction with our service.
Uses of CCPA personal information
We use categories of CCPA personal information listed above to improve your experience when interacting with the online service as noted below:
We use personal information to provide, analyze, administer, enhance and personalize our services and marketing efforts, to process your registration, your recurring payments, and to communicate with you on these and other topics. For example, we use such information to:
- determine your general geographic location, provide localized content, provide you with customized and personalized viewing recommendations for titles and shows we think will be of interest to you;
- to coordinate with Partners to make the EveryoneCounts.World service available to members and to provide information to non-members about the availability of the EveryoneCounts.World service, based on the specific relationship you have with the Partner;
- prevent, detect and investigate potentially prohibited or illegal activities, including fraud, and to enforce our terms (such as determining free trial eligibility);
- analyze and understand our audience, improve our service (including our user interface experiences) and optimize content selection, recommendation algorithms and delivery;
- communicate with you concerning our service so that we can send you news about EveryoneCounts.World, details about new features and content available on EveryoneCounts.World, special offers, promotional announcements, consumer surveys, and to assist you with operational requests such as password reset requests. These communications may be by various methods, such as email, push notifications and online messaging channels.
To make requests, or if you have a question regarding our privacy practices, please contact email@example.com with the subject line “Privacy Concerns”.
