Privacy Policy

Last Updated: July 26, 2013

This Privacy Policy explains how Cognitive Media Networks, Inc. (“Cognitive“) collects, uses and shares information about you when you access and use our website (the “Site“). This Privacy Policy does not, however, describe the privacy practices of Cognitive’s customers (such as manufacturers of Smart TVs) who use our products and services to collect information. For more details about the privacy practices of our customers, please refer to their respective privacy policies.

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of the policy and, in some cases, we may provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our website’s homepage or sending you a notification). We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy frequently to stay informed about our information practices and the ways you can help protect your privacy.
