Instead, advertisers pre-define a specific audience by certain generic criteria (e.g. the city of residence, the age range, or the number of followers of an unidentified user) for a specific ad campaign. If your profile matches these generic criteria, we may choose to display a suitable ad to you. We may also display ads based on the content that you have recently viewed or searched, however no personal data is used for such ads. We don't use any of your information to display ads across other websites to you.
- To customize your use of the Platform and/or the content of any email newsletter or other material that we may send to you from time to time.
For other purposes, provided we disclose this to you at the relevant time, and provided that you agree to the proposed use of your personal data.
34. Sharing of your information
- Other users: Any information in your public profile (other than your email address) will be accessible by other users of the Platform, who may view your profile information, view to and comment on any of your public content, add themselves to your list of followers, and send you messages. If you view any content uploaded by a premium user, the fact that you have viewed to those content will be shared with that premium user, so that they can track the popularity of their content. Similarly, if you comment on any content on the Platform, your comments will be available to all users of the Platform.
- With your consent: We will disclose your information if you have explicitly agreed that we may do so. We will make this clear to you at the point at which we collect your information.
- Service providers: We use certain reputable third parties, some of whom may be located outside of the US, to provide us with certain specialized services related to the Platform. These third parties will have access to certain information about you, but only where this is necessary in order for those third parties to provide their services to us. Where we transfer personal data to these third parties, we ask and require these third parties to implement appropriate organizational and technical security measures to protect against unauthorized disclosure of personal data, and only to process personal data in accordance with our instructions and to the extent necessary to provide their services to us.
- Users of our API: Kimavi has an open API, which enables application developers to integrate elements of the Platform into exciting new apps. Some of these developers may be located outside of the US. Any information that you choose to make public on the Platform, including your public profile information and any public content, may be accessible to these developers. Please bear this in mind when deciding what information to publish on your profile. For information on how to limit the information that is available over the API, please see the Choice and Control section below.
- Other networks and connected apps: If you choose to connect your Kimavi® account to other apps or social networks such as Facebook, Google+, Tumblr, LinkedIn or Twitter, you will be sharing certain information with these apps or networks. In the case of Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, Tumblr or Twitter, any new public content that you post or view to on Kimavi® or any new favorites will be shared to those networks and will be visible to your followers and friends on those networks. In the case of connected apps, you will need to provide the app developer with full access to your Kimavi® account in order to upload and download content, or comment on, favorite or repost content from within the app. This will mean sharing your public information, plus access to your private content. Kimavi is not responsible for these other apps or networks, so please make sure you only connect your account with apps or services that you trust. For information on how to control the information that your share, and how to disconnect your account from other networks or apps, please see the Choice and Control section below.
- As aggregated data: We may aggregate your personal data with similar data relating to other users of the Platform in order to create statistical information regarding the Platform and its use, which we may then share with third parties or make publicly available. However, none of this information would include any email address or other contact information, or anything that could be used to identify you individually, either online or in real life.
- If required by law: We will disclose your information if we believe in good faith that we are permitted or required to do so by law, including in response to a court order, subpoena or other legal demand or request.
- To protect our interests: We may disclose your information if we feel this is necessary in order to protect or defend our legitimate rights and interests, or those of our users, employees, directors or shareholders, and/or to ensure the safety and security of the Platform and/or the Kimavi® community.
- In the context of a business transfer: We may transfer your information to any person or company that acquires all or substantially all of the assets or business of Kimavi, or on a merger of our business, or in the event of our insolvency.

36. Choice and control
We do our best to give you as much choice as possible regarding the amount of information you provide to us, and the control you have over that information.
It is not necessary for you to provide us with any personal data in order to visit the Website, although certain information will be collected automatically by virtue of your visit (as described above). However, if you do decide to register a Kimavi® account, you can control your information in the following ways.
Check out the Email tab within your Settings page on the Website. When you are logged in to your account, you can access your Settings by clicking on your profile picture at the top of the screen, and selecting Settings from the drop down menu.
From the Email tab you can tell us:
- which email notifications (if any) you would like to receive from us; and
- any additional or alternative email addresses that you may wish us to use to communicate with you.
You can also turn off email notifications from the Account page within your Settings. This will immediately disable all email notifications, other than essential account notifications such as important service updates, reports of copyright infringement and other essential information relating to your account and your use of the Platform.
It is also possible to unsubscribe from email newsletters and notifications (other than essential account notifications) at any time by clicking on the link at the end of each email.
Sharing with other apps and networks
The Connections tab within your Settings on the Website enables you to control the information you share with other networks and applications. As well as selecting those of your social networks you wish to share to, you can also control access to other services and applications to which you have connected your Kimavi® account.
If you sign up for Kimavi® using your Facebook or Google+ account, your Kimavi® account and your Facebook or Google+ account respectively will be connected automatically. Information regarding the public content that you post, view or favorite on Kimavi®, will be shared with the connected Facebook or Google+ account. Content that you share with Facebook will appear on your timeline and in your Facebook friends’ newsfeeds. Content you share with Google will be seen by the people from your Google+ circles when they visit your Google+ profile, make relevant Google searches, on Google-served ads, and the services selected in your Google account settings. If you do not want this information shared with Facebook or Google, please change your Settings.
Sharing with app developers
Kimavi® has an open API, which allows third party developers to build some really cool apps as an extension of the Platform. If you would prefer that your contents are not made available to third party app developers, you can disable API access within the content page for each of the content that you upload. Click on the pencil icon in the waveform player, and uncheck the “Apps enabled” box at the bottom of the page. Please note that your public profile information will still be accessible, but this does not include anything that is not publicly available on the Website.
Information on how to block or disable cookies is included in our Cookies Policy.
You can use the settings within our iOS device or within the Android app to opt-out of analytics tracking and bug reporting. For the opt-out, if you are using our iOS app, go to the settings of your iOS device and open the Kimavi® tab.

Deleting your account
You can delete your account from the Account page within your Settings on the Website at any time. Please bear in mind that, if you delete your account, all data associated with your account, including the content that you have uploaded and the usage data associated with those content, will be deleted and may not be recoverable. You are therefore advised to copy or back up all content uploaded to your account before you delete your account.
Even if you delete your Kimavi® account, it is possible that your information may still show up in some internet search results for a short while afterwards, if the search engine maintains a temporary cache of web pages. Search engines' caching processes are outside of Kimavi’s control and therefore we cannot be responsible for any information that remains cached by search engines after that information has been removed from the Platform.
37. Access to your data
As described above, most of the personal data and other information you provide to us can be accessed and updated in the Settings page of your Kimavi® account. If you wish to access, amend or delete any other personal data we hold about you, or if you have any objection to the processing of any personal data that we hold about you, please contact us at Admin AT Kimavicom, or the address provided below.
If you ask us to delete your account (either via the Settings page or by email), we will do so within a reasonable period of time, but we may need to retain some of your personal data in order to satisfy our legal obligations, or where we have a legitimate reason for doing so.

43. Kimavi Cookies
We use our own cookies to recognize you when you visit our website or use our apps. This means that you don’t have to log in each time you visit, and we can remember your preferences and settings.
Those cookies with one- or two-letter names (such as “a”, “c” or “w”) are Kimavi cookies.

To opt out of this analysis by Google, please see the Opting out section below.
46. Google AdWords and Google Remarketing
We use the online advertising program Google AdWords and the Google Remarketing technology, both operated by the company Google Inc. ("Google").
For measuring conversion with Google AdWords, a conversion tracking cookie is placed when a user clicks on a Kimavi advertisement delivered by Google (“Ads”). Conversion tracking cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. Google uses a different cookie for each Google AdWords customer and there is no consolidation of the cookie data with other data. If you click on one of our Ads and proceed to a page equipped with a conversion tag and the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion is documented. With the help of the conversion tracking cookie we see the total number of conversions and are able to review the performance of our Ads. You can find more information about Google AdWords.
When you click on one of our Ads, a Google Remarketing cookie is placed. This cookie helps to serve our Ads to you at a later time when you browse pages of the Google content network. Remarketing cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. For more information on Google Remarketing, please see here.

47. Similar Technologies
In addition to cookies, we also use the following standard Internet technologies in connection with your use of the Platform:
- Clear GIFs: We use “clear GIFs”, sometimes known as “web bugs”, which are small image files that we embed into our email newsletters. These clear GIFs tell us whether you opened the newsletter, clicked on any of the content or forwarded the newsletter to someone else. This provides us with useful information regarding the effectiveness of our email newsletters, which we can use to ensure that we are delivering information that is relevant to our users.
- Flash cookies: We use Flash cookies to synchronize information between multiple Kimavi® players. This ensures that one player is stopped when another player starts. We do not use Flash cookies for the purposes of collecting any personal data, and do not use Flash cookies to respond any cookies that you might previously have deleted.
- HTML5 local storage: We use HTML5 local storage to store your default learning data and, in the case of premium users, to set the community progress. If you access the mobile version of our website, we use HTML5 local storage to store certain cookie data, including your user plan, authentication data, your username and your display preferences. We do not use HTML5 local storage to collect any personal data.

However, we do not use these technologies to collect any personal data.)

IV. Community Guidelines
• Respect others
• Create, upload and share
Kimavi enables you to express yourself through your content, and lets you share those content across the web. So, be creative, be expressive and let the world know how awesome you are. But remember – only share content that you have created yourself and have permission to share. If you are unsure whether you can upload something, check out our Copyright Information pages.
• Give us a link
Our widgets enable you to take tracks from Kimavi and embed them on other websites. This is really great, but we're picking up the bandwidth bill each month, so we'd really appreciate it if you could link back to us whenever you post Kimavi hosted content elsewhere on the web.
• Criticize, but do it constructively
Criticism can be really valuable, but only when it's done constructively. So, please share your opinions, but before posting anything, ask yourself "Would I appreciate receiving the same comment?".
• Upload things that aren't yours to upload
Uploading and sharing means you must always be 100% certain that you are the creator of what you're uploading, or have permission from all relevant rights holders. Anyone who repeatedly uploads other people's content risks having their account suspended or terminated. If you need more information about copyright, check out our Copyright Information pages.
• Use someone else's name
Kimavi usernames are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Please don't register accounts in the name of another person, or using someone else's trademark, even if this is meant as a tribute. If you feel that someone is impersonating you on Kimavi, or is infringing your trademark, you can tell us about it by sending an email.
• Rant, flame, troll or be an asshole
Kimavi is a social place but it's not the place for you to act outrage from other parts of your life. Don't let a personal issue strain the rest of the community. Inappropriate behavior, including abusive, defamatory, obscene, racist or offensive comments, will put you at risk of having your account suspended or terminated.
There's a fine line between promoting your content and spamming. The more you can make your messages and actions personal and relevant, the less likely you are to be reported for spam. Faking your own popularity, or using content or comments to promote other products or services can be considered as spam and isn't welcome on Kimavi.
52. If you break these rules
We take these rules seriously, and expect you to as well. If you break these rules we will take action. If we receive notification from a rights holder that any content, text or images in your account infringe their copyright, or if we believe that your behavior is inappropriate, we will send you a warning. If we have to send you more than two of these warnings, we will suspend your account. In the most extreme cases, we may suspend your account without warning.
53. Tell us about it
If you feel that someone is infringing your copyright, you can tell us about it.
Remember, we want Kimavi to be a community where everyone feels comfortable and respected - it's up to all of us to make sure this happens.
54. To Sum It Up
Basically, be nice, respect the law and think before you post. In most cases, we'll send you a warning before we take other measures and we'll always try to act reasonably. We think this is fair but if you don't agree, maybe Kimavi is not the place for you.
These guidelines have been written down to ensure that everyone within the community has the experience they want. We're not trying to set up rules and regulations for exactly how you should and shouldn't act but rather to make clear that this should be a place of respect between people and a place for responsible content posting. We hope you agree and understand. If you do, don't or have any other questions or comments please let us know.
