Privacy Policy

Last updated: June 5, 2017


Welcome to the web site, and any other web sites, applications, or services provided, owned, or operated by Pressto, Inc. (with its affiliates, "Pressto") that link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, the "Being Services"). Pressto values the privacy of users, subscribers, publishers, members, and others who visit and use the Being Services (collectively or individually, "you" or "users") and wants you to be familiar with how we collect, use, and disclose information from and about you.


There are many different ways you can use the Being Services (e.g., to broadcast live content, view live broadcasts, communicate with others). Once you publish information publicly on the Being Services - such as when you broadcast content, posts comments, participate in a chat, post profile information, or follow a user – that information may be collected and used by others, so only share what you would want to be public. There are also ways in which you directly share information with Pressto; one example is by creating an account.


By agreeing to this Privacy Policy in your Pressto account setup, or by using the Being Services, you expressly consent to the information handling practices described in this Policy.

Cookies are small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters that are sent to your browser. Information we automatically collect may include Internet Protocol address (" IP Address "), a unique user ID, device type, device identifiers, browser types and language, referring and exit page addresses, platform type, version of software installed, system type, the content and pages that you access on the Being Services, the number of clicks made, the amount of time spent on pages, the dates and times that you visit the Being Services, and other similar information.

How Pressto Uses Information





When Pressto Discloses Information


Pressto does not share information that can identify you personally with third parties for their own marketing or promotional uses without your consent. We may share such information for the following purposes:






Your Choices


You may decline to share certain information with Pressto, in which case Pressto may not be able to provide to you some of the features and functionality found on the Being Services. To update, correct, or delete certain information and establish preferences regarding your profile on Pressto, visit the Settings Page.


To protect your privacy and security, we may take steps to verify your identity before granting you access or making corrections to your information. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information at all times.



Advertisers and Analytics Providers


We may use third-party Web analytics services on our site, such as those of Google Analytics and Mixpanel. These service providers use a variety of tracking technologies such as cookies to analyze how users use the Being Services. The information collected will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers, who use the information to evaluate your use of the Being Services. To learn about opting out of Google Analytics, please; click here. To opt out of Mixpanel, please click here. Because these opt outs are cookie-based, please note that if you get a new computer or device, install or start using a new browser, or erase or alter your browser's cookie file, you may need to opt out again.

Pressto may allow advertisers, third-party advertising networks and third-party advertising serving companies to serve advertisements directly to you within the Being Services and other Pressto sites, services and software. By serving these advertisements directly to you, these companies can set their own cookies on your computer and trigger their own Web beacons and other tracking technologies to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements, and to collect and track information such as demographic information, inferred interests, aggregated information, and activity to assist them in personalizing the advertising content delivered to you. Pressto does not provide information that personally identifies you to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent. However, please note that if an advertiser asks Pressto to show an advertisement to a certain audience (for example, males age 18 to 25) or audience segment (for example, males age 18 to 25 who have subscribed to certain broadcasters) and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience that they were trying to reach.


This Privacy Policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the tracking technologies and activities of, those other advertisers, third-party advertising networks, or third-party advertising servers. You should consult the respective privacy policies of these advertisers, third-party advertising networks, or third-party advertising servers. For more information about third-party advertising networks and similar entities that use these technologies, see , and to opt-out of such ad networks' and services' advertising practices, go to the; Network Advertising Initiative opt-outpage, the Digital Advertising Alliance opt-out page, or the Your Online Choices page. Pressto does not control which companies participate in these opt-out programs or how these companies honor their opt-out choices.


Do Not Track


Do Not Track ("DNT") is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. DNT is a way for users to inform websites and services that they do not want certain information about their webpage visits collected over time and across websites or online services. We are committed to providing you with meaningful choices about the information collected on our website for third party purposes, and that is why we provide the Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance opt-out links above. However, we do not recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals, as the Internet industry is currently still working toward defining exactly what DNT means, what it means to comply with DNT, and a common approach to responding to DNT.


Data Security


Pressto uses a variety of managerial, technical, and physical measures to protect the integrity and security of your information. These measures may vary based on the sensitivity of your information. For example, we send encrypted data over a secure connection if you choose to search for other users using the Being Services via your mobile phone’s address book, and we do not store this information. However, no security precautions or systems can be completely secure. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Pressto or on the Being Services, and you do so at your own risk. We cannot guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.



Children's Privacy




Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, Pressto does not knowingly collect or maintain personal information from persons under 13 years-of-age. If Pressto learns that personal information of persons under 13-years-of-age has been collected on or through the Being Services, Pressto will take the appropriate steps to delete this information.


If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 13 who has become a user of any of the Being Services, then please contact Pressto at  to have that child's account terminated and personal information deleted.


Merger or Sale


In the event that Pressto, or some or all assets related to the Being Services are acquired by or merged with a third-party entity or in connection with a contemplated change of ownership transaction, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information that we have collected from users as part of that merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control event.


Changes and Updates to this Privacy Policy


Pressto reserves the right to change, modify, add, or remove portions of this Privacy Policy at any time (for example to reflect updates to the Being Services or to reflect changes in the law). If Pressto changes this Privacy Policy, we will provide you notice of these changes, such as by sending an email, posting a notice on the Being Services, or updating the "Last Updated" date above. Please check this Privacy Policy periodically for those changes. Your continued use of the Being Services after the posting of changes constitutes your binding acceptance of such changes.
