Last Updated: Tuesday May 29, 2018

IRIS.TV respects your concerns about privacy. IRIS.TV is a cloud-based personalized video programming system that allows publishers and content owners to generate more video views and engage users across all devices.

This Privacy Policy describes the types of personal information we collect through our website at www.iris.tv and via our products and services (“Services”) and other tools that reference this Privacy Policy (collectively, the “Online Channels”). This Privacy Policy describes the types of information we obtain, how we use the information we obtain, with whom we may share it and how you may exercise your rights regarding our processing of that information. The Privacy Policy also describes the measures we take to safeguard the personal information we obtain and how you can contact us about our privacy practices.

In connection with our cloud-based video programming platform, IRIS.TV processes certain data (“Customer Content”) on behalf of and at the direction of its publishers and content owners. Customer Content includes data that is maintained and collected by IRIS.TV’s Personalization and Programming Platform that IRIS.TV may access to perform recommendations, programming, content delivery, analytics and supporting services.  This includes personal information about our publishers’ and content owners’ (collectively “Customers”) employees, customers, partners and suppliers. Our use of such data is subject to the terms of our Customer agreements. In contrast, the information we collect through our Customers’ use of our Online Channels (such as names, addresses, billing information and employee contact information) and through our offline interactions with our Customers is subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy.
