Browsing Cochise Talk You can watch videos on Cochise Talk without having a Cochise Talk Account or a Google Account. You also can contact us through the Cochise Talk Help Center or by emailing us directly without having to register for an account.
Your Cochise Talk Account. For some activities on Cochise Talk, like uploading videos, posting comments, flagging videos, or watching restricted videos, you need a Cochise Talk or Google 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. A Google Account, additionally, allows you to access other Google services that require registration.
Usage Information. When you use Cochise Talk, 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 Cochise Talk (including UI elements, settings). If you are logged in, we may associate that information with your Cochise Talk 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 video content that you voluntarily disclose online (e.g., video comments, your profile page) may be collected and used by others. If you download the Cochise Talk 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 Cochise Talk when the Uploader automatically checks for updates and will be used to update your version of the Uploader.
If you submit personal information to Cochise Talk, we may use that information to operate, maintain, and improve the features and functionality of Cochise Talk, 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 Cochise Talk changes or for customer service purposes). You also can choose how often Cochise Talk sends you email updates in your Cochise Talk Account settings page.
When you create a Cochise Talk Account, some information about your Cochise Talk Account and your account activity will be provided to other users of Cochise Talk. This may include the date you opened your Cochise Talk Account, the date you last logged into your Cochise Talk Account, your age (if you choose to make it public), the country and the number of videos you have watched.
Your Cochise Talk Account name, not your email address, is displayed to other users when you engage in certain activities on Cochise Talk, such as when you upload videos or send messages through Cochise Talk. Other users can contact you by leaving a message or comment on the site.
Any videos that you submit to Cochise Talk may be redistributed through the internet and other media channels, and may be viewed by other Cochise Talk users or the general public.
You may also choose to add personal information which may include your name, gender, profile picture or other details, that will be visible to other users on your Cochise Talk Account channel page. If you choose to add certain features to your Cochise Talk 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.
If you have a Cochise Talk Account, you may update or correct your personal profile information, email preferences and privacy settings at any time by visiting your account profile page.
You may control the information that is available to other users and your confirmed friends at any time by editing your Cochise Talk Account and the features that are included on your channel page. If you have enabled Active Sharing, other users may see that you, as identified by your account name, not your email address, are watching the same video.
You may, of course, decline to submit personal information through Cochise Talk, in which case you can still view videos and explore Cochise Talk, but Cochise Talk may not be able to provide certain services to you. Some advanced Cochise Talk features may use other Google services like Google Checkout or AdSense. The privacy notices of those services govern the use of your personal information associated with them.
