This policy explains in detail how “MULTIMEDIA-ENGLISH” (hereinafter “this website”, “we”, “us”, “our”, “MULTIMEDIA-ENGLISH”, “http://www.multimedia-english.com”) use any information collected during any session of usage by you (hereinafter “your information”, "your data").
This website has been designed and is managed in the Kingdom of Spain, so the Spanish law of data protection applies here for all purposes as far as our management concerns. In the use and protection of your data in this website, such law guarantees your right to access, modify or cancel the personal data collected in your registration form on this website and stored in our database. It also guarantees that such data will only be used for its original purpose (in this case, the management of your user account on this website and for statistical purpose as to our website functioning) and in no way shall we reveal them to a third party without your consent. Your registration data will be stored in the database "MULTIMEDIA-ENGLISH", registered in the Spanish Agencia de Protección de Datos (National Agency for Data Protection) with number 2092590009.
If you want to read the aforementioned law you can click here for an English translation of it: Organic law 15/1999 of 13 December on the Protection of Personal Data. Or you can click here for the original Spanish version: Ley orgánica 15/1999 del 13 de diciembre de protección de datos de caracter personal.
Your information is collected via two ways. Firstly, by browsing “MULTIMEDIA-ENGLISH” will cause the site software to create cookies, which are small text files that are downloaded on to your computer’s web browser temporary files. These cookies are strictly designed to improve and facilitate your user experience, for example keeping you logged in until you decide otherwise, or remembering your last configuration options. Cookies may also collect information about the videos you are watching for optimisation reasons, and, like all cookies, can be turned off in your browser if you wish. Nevertheless, turning off cookies for the Internet leads to a poorer navigation experience, the impossibility to enjoy many of the services available and even the malfunction or impossibility of access to many pages and services, and the same may apply in some respects to our website in particular.
The second way in which we collect your information is by what you submit to us. This can be, and is not limited to: registering on “MULTIMEDIA-ENGLISH” (hereinafter “your account”) and your personal contributions to the site such as posts, dedications or video pages submitted by you after registration and whilst logged in (hereinafter “your posts”).
Your account will contain a uniquely identifiable name (hereinafter “your user name” or “nick”), a personal password used for logging into your account (hereinafter “your password”) and a personal, valid e-mail address (hereinafter “your e-mail”) which will also be unique (two users cannot register with the same e-mail address). These data are necessary for the correct functioning of your account. Furthermore, identifying you as a teacher will grant you permission to post in both the user and teacher comments section, whereas a student will not be allowed to post in the section for teachers. The rest of users will have access to your video lists -if any- of both uploaded videos and favourited ones, together with your nick, genre, country and age range (not your exact age). The rest of the data that you fill in when registering will be solely used for statistical purpose and shall not be made public or visible to other users unless you reveal it yourself. Furthermore, within your account, you have the option to opt-in or opt-out of automatically generated e-mails (hereinafter “newsletters”) from the site software. Newsletters will be used only when reasonably needed and in no way are they intended to be a form of spamming or be used with the sole purpose of advertising products. Opting out of newsletters will not cancel our right to personally contact you via e-mail if we need to do so for some reason related to the website.
The software running this website has been designed by “Sistemas Globales Multimedia S.L.®” (hereinafter “SGM”), with CIF (Spanish tax identification number) B-49186190. SGM keeps a right of access to the users’ data stored in this website database with the sole purpose of making back-ups, correct malfunctions, make improvements or implement any future functionality. But SGM’s right of access to the users’ data will never include the disclosure or cession of data to a third party or any other use of them which is not strictly restricted to the maintenance, management, mending or improvement of this website.
Your password is ciphered so that it is secure. Your password is the means of accessing your account at “MULTIMEDIA-ENGLISH”, so please guard it carefully and under no circumstance will anyone affiliated with “MULTIMEDIA-ENGLISH”, SGM or another 3rd party, legitimately ask you for your password. Should you forget your password for your account, you can use the “I forgot my password” feature provided by this website in the log in form. This process will ask you to submit your user name and your e-mail, then the software will automatically generate a new password to reclaim your account.
We also reserve the right to cancel any account which has not been used for a long period of time which will be defined according to the global number and situation of idle accounts on this website, but in no case will we ever prune accounts due to periods of inactivity inferior to 6 months. Should your account be cancelled for this reason, you can reopen it by registering again. In that case you can choose the same nick as before as long as such user name is still available.
“MULTIMEDIA-ENGLISH” and its database (as well as any future native section we may add) is hosted in Germany by SGM®, a web hosting company sited in Spain, so the database protection on their part also complies with the European Union protection laws and its safe harbour policy.
