C. Notice to Consumers in the United States. If you are a resident of California or jurisdictions with similar laws (e.g., Colorado, Virginia Connecticut, Utah), you may have certain additional privacy rights under the applicable privacy laws in your state (“State Privacy Laws”). This section generally describes those rights and how you can exercise them.
These rights are not absolute. In some situations we may not be able to process your request. This may include if a legal exception applies. We’ll let you know when or if a right doesn’t apply to you. You will not be discriminated against for exercising a privacy right. If you disagree with our decision you can contact us as described at the end of this policy. Those rights are:
Access: to learn the categories of information we collect and use, and for those in California, the categories of sources of collection and disclosure and the business purpose for collection;
Portability: a copy of the specific pieces of Personal Information collected;
Deletion: to have us delete information we collected from you; and
Correction: asking us to fix your information..
Please note that if we delete your personal information, some of our services will not work the same. For example, your previous opt out requests will not be saved and saved preferences and information will no longer be available.
Exercising your Rights:
To exercise your rights, submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:
Clicking HERE; or
Emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your verifiable consumer request must:
Provide sufficient identifying information (including full name and email address) to allow us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected and retained Personal Information, and/or your authority to make such request on behalf of the data subject, and
Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.
Note that we will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request or to review and comply with the request.
You may authorize someone to act as your agent and submit a request on your behalf. Due to the sensitivity of such requests, you must verify the agent’s authorization before we will act. Accordingly:
You or your agent must supply proof that the agent is registered with the Secretary of State to act on your behalf; or
You or your agent must supply other written permission for a specific agent to act on your behalf, and will use your email address to connect directly with you to verify agent identity and authority.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm with a level of confidence appropriate to the sensitivity of the information that the personal information we have collected and retained in our systems and databases relates to you.
Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us, but if you have an account with us, we may require you to log-in to such account in order to verify your identity or authority or to provide or delete your information.
Right to Opt out of the Sale or Sharing of Personal Information
Residents of certain jurisdictions have the right to opt out of the “sale” or “sharing” of their personal data, as such terms are defined under State Privacy Laws.
Under California law, “share” means disclosing your personal information by us to a third party for cross-context behavioral advertising, in exchange for money or anything else of value. Thus, when we use the term “share” under this section, we are using it in the narrow meaning of how it is defined under California law. Other State Privacy Laws do not use the term “share,” but describe the concept as using personal information for targeted advertising.
The term “sell” has a different meaning under certain State Privacy Laws. For example, under the laws of California and Colorado, “sell” means exchanging your personal information by us with a third party for money or anything else of value. Under Virginia law, “sell” is the exchange of personal information for money only.
Currently, we participate in digital advertising networks to deliver advertising that is tailored to your interests. The participation in certain ad networks can constitute a “sale” or “sharing” of personal data under State Privacy Laws. Vevo also participates in certain data co-ops where we disclose your information to our marketing partners. Although we never received monetary compensation for your data, this activity may constitute a “sale” under State Privacy Laws. The categories of third parties to whom information may be disclosed in these contexts is our third party partners (e.g., advertisers and marketing partners and data analytics providers).
We may “sell” the following categories of Personal Information:
Commercial information; and
Inferences drawn from the categories described above in order to create a profile about you to reflect your preferences, characteristics, preferences, behavior and attitudes.
You can opt-out of being tracked by these third parties by clicking the “DO NOT SELL OR SHARE MY PERSONAL INFORMATION” link at the bottom of our Website.
Please note that your opt-out preferences are website/device specific.
You can also opt-out by broadcasting an Opt-Out Preference Signal, such as the Global Privacy Control (GPC) (on the browsers and/or browser extensions that support such a signal). Note that we will only apply the request to that specific device or browser and only for cookie or pixel based selling and sharing. Thus, you will need opt out on each browser and device where you use our services. If you clear your cookie history on a particular browser or device, your opt out request will no longer be saved.
To learn more about these advertising practices or to opt out of this type of advertising of your personal data, please visit https://optout.aboutads.info/ and https://www.networkadvertising.org/ to optout. You can also opt out of the re-sale of your personal information by other participants in these digital advertising networks by visiting this site and opting out of each participant’s digital property.
Right to Opt out of Profiling
Residents of some jurisdictions—subject to certain exceptions—may have a right to opt out of forms of automated processing performed on Personal Information to evaluate, analyze or predict personal aspects related to your economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or movements (“Profiling”).
We engage in cookie-based or digital advertising-based Profiling. To opt out of this practice, please follow the instructions detailed above regarding opting out of the sale or sharing of your Personal Information.
Right to Limit Disclosure of Sensitive Personal Information
Residents of some jurisdictions may have a right to limit the processing of your Sensitive Personal Information (as defined by California law). We do not collect or process Sensitive Personal Information for inferring characteristics or use or disclose Sensitive Personal Information for purposes other than those permitted by law.

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
We share the Device information we collect with third party service providers. We cannot reasonably identify you based on this Device information; however, these third party service providers may combine the information with their own data to make inferences about what ads may be relevant to you. For example, we share your IP address so that advertisers can determine which region you live in and provide you ads in the language of that region. We receive revenue for ads served on the Vevo Service. Sometimes we get paid only for the placement of those ads and sometimes we get paid based on how they perform, for example, how many times an advertisement was viewed. We generally use aggregate, statistical data to find out more about how well ad campaigns have performed, and we may provide the results of these studies with third party service providers. To find out more information about ads and your information contact us at email@example.com.
Some web browsers have a setting that requests that a web application disable its tracking of an individual user (also known as a “Do Not Track” request). Unfortunately, due to technological limitations, our Vevo Service does not recognize such “Do Not Track” requests.
