By accessing or engaging with any of TBJ’s pages or applications, on a Social Networking Site (“SNS”) or other platform, you allow TBJ to access certain information from your profile for that applicable SNS or platform. The information you allow TBJ to access varies and is affected by the privacy settings you establish on the applicable SNS or platform.

We encourage parents and legal guardians to spend time with their children online and to be fully familiar with the sites visited by their children. At various places on the Website or when providing other services, we may ask users for their age. By using the Website or our services you agree to respond truthfully and accurately about your age. We do not knowingly collect or store any personal information from children under the age of 13.
Our Website may contain links to third-party websites that are not owned or controlled by TBJ. TBJ has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party websites.
Social Media Plug-ins
Social media plugins of SNS’s such as Facebook and Twitter (amongst others) are integrated on our Website. Where our sites contain a plug-in to a SNS, these are clearly marked (e.g. with a Facebook button). If you chose to click on one of these buttons or links, your browser connects directly to the servers of the relevant SNS. The SNS directly transmits the content of the plugin to your browser. If you are registered on the relevant SNS and logged into your respective account, the SNS receives the information that the web page was used by you. If you interact with a SNS plug-in (e.g. you press the Facebook “Like” -feature, the Twitter “Tweet this” feature or SNS provider button or equivalent) or drop a comment on the appropriate web page, the corresponding information is directly transmitted to the relevant SNS from your browser. If you are not registered with the SNS or you are logged out before you visit our Website, there is the possibility that at least your IP address will be submitted to and stored by the SNS. If you interact with us through a SNS, plug-in etc. then you may be permitting us to have ongoing access to some limited information from your SNS profile (such as name, email address, photo, gender, location, the people/sites you follow etc.).
Protecting Our Rights
We collect, store and use your information to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient and customized experience on the Website. We sometimes need to collect and use your personal information to enable us to: (i) provide technical support; (ii) cast our programming; and (iii) enforce our terms of service.
Information We Collect Automatically
When you visit this site, we automatically collect certain personal information, that we then aggregate so that it is not linked to a single, identifiable individual. This information provides us with statistics such as how many users visit the Website and which pages were accessed. By collecting this information, we learn how to best tailor this site to our visitors. During some visits we may use software tools to measure and collect session information, including page response times, download errors, time spent on certain pages and page interaction information.
We may also use anonymous data in aggregate form for purposes of research or analysis. In order to better understand and serve our customers, we may conduct research based on customer demographics, interests and behaviors. Although this aggregated data may be based in part on personal information it does not identify any users personally. We may share this type of anonymous data with third parties, including our affiliates, agents, service providers and current and prospective business partners to administer the Website and for advertising, promotional and other business purposes.
A number of companies offer utilities designed to help you visit websites anonymously. Although we will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist.
