Updated as of June, 2012

Our Privacy Notice will describe how TapePlay treats personal information (as defined below) when you register/subscribe for and/or use TapePlay’s Services. In addition, the following describes privacy practices specific to TapePlay.

Browsing TapePlay

You can watch videos on TapePlay without having a TapePlay Account. You can contact us by emailing us directly without having to register for an account at

Your TapePlay Account

For some of Tape Play’s Services, like uploading videos, posting notes and saving videos, you must register for a TapePlay Account. We ask for some personal information ("PI") when you create an account, including your name, email address and a password, which is used to protect your account from unauthorized access.

Usage Information

We may record information about your usage of TapePlay’s Services such as sports categories searched or viewed, the videos you watch, the fr==uency and size of data transfers, and information you display about yourself as well as information you click on in TapePlay (including userinterface elements and personal settings). If you are logged in we may associate that information with your TapePlay Account for the purposes of general marketing, to better serve you, and for optimizing web usage and deciding which advertisements to show.

Content Uploaded to Site

Any PI or video content that you voluntarily disclose to us (e.g., school info, statistics) may be collected and used by other users, members, or subscribers (collective, "Users") of the TapePlay Services in accordance with this Privacy Notice and TOS.

We also may collect other types of information in the following ways when you visit our website and use our Services:

  • Our server logs automatically collect information, such as your IP address, your browser type and language, and the date and time of your visit, which helps us track users’ movements around our site and understand trends.
  • We may assign your computer one or more cookies which may collect information to facilitate access to our website and to personalize your online experience.
  • We may use standard Internet tools, such as web beacons, which collect information that tracks your use of our website and enables us to customize our services and advertisements.


Usage of PI

If you submit PI to TapePlay, we may use that information to operate, maintain, and improve the features and functionality of TapePlay, and to process any flagging activity or other communication you send to us.

We will not use your email address or other PI to send commercial or marketing messages without your consent. We may, however, use your email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major TapePlay changes or for customer service purposes). You also can choose if TapePlay sends you email updates in your TapePlay Privacy settings page.

We may use cookies and log file information to: (a) store information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit TapePlay’s website or use its Services; (b) monitor the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns; and (c) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed.

Furthermore, we may use PI to offer products and services that may be of interest to you; process payment for products or services you order via our website; and customize the advertising and content that you see on our website.

Information That is Publicly Available

Your name (first and last), but not your email address, is displayed to other registered and non-registered users of TapePlay’s Services when you upload videos. Any videos that you submit to TapePlay may be redistributed through the Internet and other media channels, and may be viewed by other TapePlay Users and the general public. You may also choose to add PI to submitted videos, which may include your name, sex, school name or other details. This information will be visible to other TapePlay Users and the general public.

Your Choices

If you have registered for a TapePlay 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, of course, decline to submit PI to TapePlay. However, while you may still view videos and explore TapePlay’s website not all of our Services may be available.

Advertising on TapePlay

TapePlay strives to provide you with relevant and useful advertising. We may use a range of information including cookies, IP addresses, usage data and other non-personal information about your computer or device (such as browser type and operating system) to provide you with relevant advertising. While you are logged in to your TapePlay Account and/or otherwise using the TapePlay Services, we may also show you advertising based on non-personally identifiable information you have provided to us in your TapePlay Account.

Advertisers may serve ads based on interests and demographic categories associated with nonpersonally identifiable online activity, such as videos viewed and zip code. This non-personally identifiable information is held separately from your TapePlay Account data, or other personally identifying information in our possession.

TapePlay does not provide any PI to these third-party advertisers without your consent. If you have a TapePlay Account, you may, of course, decline to receive advertisements by visiting your account privacy settings page.

We may allow third-party advertising companies to display advertisements on our websites. We do not provide any PI to these companies. TAPE PLAY WILL NOT SELL PI TO THIRD-PARTIES. These companies, however, may use tracking tools, such as cookies, to collect information about computers used to view or interact with their advertisements.

Changes To Our Privacy Policy

We may occasionally update our Privacy Policy to reflect changes in our practices and Services. If we make material changes in the way we collect, use, or share your PI we will notify you by sending you an email to the email address you most recently provided to us and/or by prominently posting notice of the changes on our website.
