Your "Watch Now information" includes certain technical information gathered or received when you use Watch Now. Some of the technical information that may be collected or received includes: the type of browser you are using (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using (e.g., Windows or Mac OS), CPU type, your manner of connecting to the Internet (e.g., connection speed through narrowband or broadband access); Internet protocol address; Apps Installed; information about the version of service from an affiliate that you used prior to registering with the service; other information about your geographic location; and the domain name of your Internet service provider.
While registering to use most of the Watch Now services is not required, there are a limited number of optional services (for example, saving a video list) that require an "account". Registration functionality for Watch Now is provided by the Watch Now Network. If you choose to "Register an Account", you will need to register with and provide information to Watch Now. You will then obtain a Screen Name or other credential issued by Watch Now (collectively, "Screen Name") in order to access and use these optional services, and your Screen Name and associated services account will be subject to the Watch Now Terms of Service Agreement and Privacy Practices indicated in your registration process.
Your Watch Now information is used:
In the event that ownership of us or the Watch Now service was to change as a result of a merger, acquisition or transfer to another company, your Watch Now information may be transferred. If such a transfer results in a material change in the use of your Watch Now information, we will provide notice about the choices you have to decline to permit such a transfer.
If you want to change your account information (for example, your Screen Name) you will need to log onto Watch Now and access your account through the forum. Your access to your account information and choice will be governed by the Watch Now policies.
