Personal Information

  • Browsing GSpiritTV  
    You can watch videos on GSpirit without having a GSpirit Account.  You also, can contact us through the GSpirit Help Center or by emailing us directly without having to register for an account.

  • Your GSpirit Account 
    For some activities on GSpiritTV, like uploading videos, posting comments, flagging videos, or watching restricted videos, you need a GSpiritTV 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 GSpiritTV Account, additionally, allows you to access other GSpirit services that require registration.

  • Usage Information
    When you use GSpirit, 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 GSpiritTV and GSpirit Shopping (including UI elements, settings). If you are logged in, we may associate that information with your GSpirit 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 upload to GSpiritTV (e.g., video comments, your profile page) may be collected and used by others. 


  • If you submit personal information to GSpirit, we may use that information to operate, maintain, and improve the features and functionality of GSpirit, 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 GSpirit changes or for customer service purposes).

  • We use cookies, web beacons, 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 GSpirit;
    (b) provide custom, personalized content and information;
    (c) monitor the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns;
    (d) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed; and
    (e) track your entries, submissions, and status in promotions, sweepstakes, and contests.

Information That is Publicly Available

  • When you create a GSpiritTV Account, some information about your GSpiritTV Account and your account activity will be provided to other users of GSpiritTV.  This may include the date you opened your GSpiritTV Account, the date you last logged into your GSpiritTV Account, your age (if you choose to make it public), the country and the number of videos you have watched.

  • Your GSpiritTV Account name, not your email address, is displayed to other users when you engage in certain activities on GSpiritTV, such as when you upload videos or send messages through GSpiritTV.  Other users can contact you by leaving a message or comment on the site.

  • Any videos that you submit to GSpiritTV may be redistributed through the internet and other media channels, and may be viewed by other GSpiritTV 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 GSpiritTV Account channel page. If you choose to add certain features to your GSpiritTV 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.

Your Choices

  • If you have a GSpirit 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 GSpirit Account.  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 GSpirit, in which case you can still shop, view videos and explore GSpiritTV, but GSpirit may not be able to provide certain services to you.  The privacy notices of those services govern the use of your personal information associated with them.
