1. SCOPE AND APPLICATION
2. COLLECTION OF INFORMATION
Fox and our service providers may collect the following information from and about you:
Registration Information is the information you submit to register for or subscribe to a Fox Service, for example, to create an account, post comments, receive a newsletter or request other information. Registration Information may include, for example, name, email address, mailing address, and telephone number.
Activity Information. When you access and interact with the Fox Services, Fox and its service providers may collect certain information about those visits. For example, in order to permit your connection to the Fox Services, our servers receive and record information about your computer, device, and browser, including potentially your IP address, browser type, and other software or hardware information. If you access the Fox Services from a mobile or other device, we may collect a unique device identifier assigned to that device, or other transactional information for that device.
Cookies and other tracking technologies (such as browser cookies, pixels, beacons, local storage, and other mechanisms) use various approaches to collect and store data. Some of these technologies store data in the browser or on your device. Other technologies may use network-related or other information to recognize your device (e.g., IP address). Fox’s websites and other services use these technologies, for example, when you first request a web page and data is then stored on your computer or other device so the website can access information when you make subsequent requests for pages from that service. These technologies may also be used to collect and store information about your usage of the Fox Services, such as pages you have visited, search history, and the video and other content you have viewed.
Other parties that support the Fox Services by providing services, such as allowing you to share content, tracking aggregate Fox Services usage statistics, or providing advertising-related services, may also use these technologies to collect similar information when you use the Fox Services or other services. Those parties may also use these technologies, along with activity information they collect, to recognize you across the devices you use, such as a mobile device and a laptop or other computer. Fox does not control these third-party technologies and their use is governed by the privacy policies of third parties using such technologies. For more information about third-party advertising networks and similar entities that use these technologies, including your choices with respect to them, see the section entitled “To deliver relevant advertisements,” below.
Your browser may be initially set to accept cookies, but you can change your settings to notify you when a cookie is being set or updated, and to block cookies altogether. Please consult the "Help" section of your browser for more information, including on how to clear data from local storage and, depending on your browser, how to turn off other data collection by the browser.
Information from Other Sources. We may supplement the information we collect with information about your online and offline activity from other sources, such as publicly available information from social media services, advertising technology companies, advertisers, commercially available sources, and information from our Fox Affiliates or business partners
Do Not Track Signals. At this time we do not respond to browser 'Do Not Track' signals, as we await the work of interested stakeholders and others to develop standards for how such signals should be interpreted.
3. USE AND DISCLOSURE
We may use the information we collect from and about you to provide the Fox Services and features to you, including: to measure and improve those Fox Services and features; to improve your experience with both online and off-line Fox Services by delivering content you will find relevant and interesting, including advertising and marketing messages; to allow you to comment on content, and participate in contests; to provide you with customer support and to respond to inquiries. In order to provide you with content that is more interesting and relevant to you, we may use the information from and about you to make inferences and predictions about your potential areas of interest. When the information collected from or about you does not identify you as a specific person, we may use that information for any purpose or share it with other parties, to the extent permitted by applicable law.
We use the information we collect from and about you for these additional purposes:
To allow service providers to assist us in providing and managing the Fox Services. The information we collect from and about you may be made available to certain service providers, such as contractors, analytics and other measurement companies, agents, or sponsors, who help us analyze and understand your use of the Fox Services, and manage and/or provide recruiting or other Fox Services.
To contact you. Fox may periodically send promotional materials or notifications related to the Fox Services. If you want to stop receiving promotional materials, you can email us at ContactTech@fox.com or follow the unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email. There are certain service notification and other non-promotional emails that you may not opt-out of such as notifications of changes to the Fox Services or policies.
To share with business partners. Fox may share your information with business partners to permit them to send you marketing communications consistent with your choices.
To complete a merger or sale of assets. If Fox sells all or part of its business or makes a sale or transfer of its assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or transfer of all or a material part of its business (including in connection with a bankruptcy or similar proceedings), Fox may transfer your information to the party or parties involved in the transaction as part of that transaction.
Fox uses commercially reasonable administrative, technical, personnel, and physical measures designed to safeguard information in its possession against loss, theft, and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification. However, no one can guarantee the complete safety of your information.

If you are a user located outside the United States, you understand and consent to having any personal information processed in the United States or in any other country in which we have facilities or in which we engage service providers.

We may retain backup information related to your account on our servers for some time after cancelation or your request for deletion for fraud detection or to comply with applicable law or our internal security, or record-keeping policies.
