Innova TV Networks, LLC is committed to implementing measures designed to protect the privacy of those using our services. Moreover, we see it as our responsibility to set examples and help establish the standards for privacy on the Internet.
Information We Gather
We gather two types of information about the users of the Services:
(1) Non-personally identifiable information: When you use the Services, we may collect and aggregate information indicating, among other things, which pages were visited, the order in which they were visited, and which hyperlinks were “clicked.” Collecting such information involves the logging of IP addresses, operating system and browser software used by each user. Although such information is not personally identifiable, we can determine from the IP address a visitor’s Internet Service Provider and the geographic location of his or her point of connectivity.
The non-personally identifiable information we collect helps us diagnose problems with our server, administer the Services, identify the most popular areas or features of the Services, and determine the effectiveness of our promotional activities. In addition, we may disclose some of this information to advertisers to inform them of the number of people who have seen and/or clicked through their advertisements.
For the same purposes, we use “cookies”—that is, small text files placed on your computer’s hard drive—to help us determine the type of content and sites to which you link, the length of time you spend at any particular area or feature of the Services, and your usage of the Services. Cookies also tell us which advertising you have seen on the Services. At certain times, we may use outside advertising companies to display advertisements on the Web site that may contain cookies (“banner ads”). These banner ads collect information stored by the advertising company and we do not have access to this information.
Essentially, cookies are your identification cards for our computers, or servers, that placed them there. Cookies are only read by the server that placed them, and are unable to execute any code or virus. Cookies allow us to serve you better and more efficiently, and to personalize your experience on the Services. Nevertheless, you are able to control how and whether cookies will be accepted by your web browser or device. For more information on how to do so, please refer to the documentation accompanying your browser or device.
At this time, this website and the Services do not recognize automated browser signals regarding tracking mechanisms and preferences, which may include “do not track” instructions. However, you may adjust the privacy preferences of your browser, including the control of how and whether cookies will be accepted by your web browser or device. For more information on how to do so, please refer to the documentation accompanying your browser or device.
(2) Personally identifiable information: Certain features of the Services, such as surveys and contests, may require that you provide personally identifiable information (including, for example, zip code, age, income, and e-mail address, and when applicable, credit card information). Innova TV Networks, LLC has access to this information. In addition, when registering to set up an account to use certain services of the Web site such as e-mail, chat rooms, and forums, or to receive certain newsletters or specifically targeted information, we do require that you provide a valid e-mail address.
In addition, we may collect information about your location when you access any of our mobile applications. If you do not enable the service to use your location information or if the app does not have that feature, we will not collect or store your location information.
We do not control the acts of users of the Services. All users should be aware that, when they disclose personally identifiable information in a bulletin board, chat room, guestbook, or other forum, the information may be collected and used by others to send that person unsolicited e-mail from other parties outside of the Services or Innova TV Networks, LLC. In the event that you encounter any user of the Services who is improperly collecting or using information about you or other users, please contact Info@Innovatvlive.com.
How We Use (and do not use) The Information We Gather
Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the different ways we use the information that we gather. We cannot and do not assume any responsibility for any actions or omissions of third parties, including the manner in which they use information received either from us or independently. Nevertheless, in the event you encounter any third party associated with, or who claims association with us who you feel is improperly collecting or using information about you, please contact Info@innovatvlive.com; we will be happy to forward your message to the third party.
(1) How we use (and do not use) non-personally identifiable information: We use non-personally identifiable information in aggregate form to build higher quality, more useful Services by performing statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of the users of the Services, and by measuring demographics and interests regarding specific areas and features of the Services. We provide statistical information based on this data to advertisers, affiliates, and other current and potential business partners. We also use the aggregate data to inform these third parties as to the number of people who have seen and clicked on links to their web sites.
The Services may contain links to other Internet websites and services, including co-branded or other affiliated sites that may or may not be owned or operated by us. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites or services, including their use of any information (such as IP number, browser type, or operating system) collected when users or visitors to the Services click through links to those sites. Even though such information might not identify you personally, we strongly encourage you to become familiar with the privacy practices of those sites and services.
We limit our own e-mail contact and solicitations to those customers who have “opted in” to receiving such communications. The solicitations are limited in that they, among other things, will clearly indicate the originator of the e-mail and provide the customer with a method of “opting out” of receiving future communications of a similar nature.
In addition, as our businesses change, we may buy or sell various assets. In such cases, personally identifiable information about our users of our Services may be disclosed to the other party(ies) of the transaction.
In addition, we sometimes use demographic data to decide which advertisements and sponsor messages to show to which members. As an example, if Sponsor XYZ wishes to display their advertising only to female members of the Services, we may use member registration data to ensure that Sponsor XYZ’s ads are displayed only to female members.
Finally, we may use individual members’ data to “pre-populate” forms, which are displayed for the purpose of collecting individual data by us and/or our sponsors. In no case does pre-populating a form transfer any data to any advertiser or third party. Only if the member voluntarily requests that such data be transferred will any transfer take place—for example, if/when a member clicks a “submit form” button or other button.
In addition, we may use information about your location when you access our mobile applications to provide location aware products or services and for advertising purposes, and if you submit video or images. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, we may provide your location information to third parties who provide goods or services that we believe may be of interest to you.
We reserve the right to release any and all information contained within our access logs concerning any visitor or member when that visitor or member is in violation of our Terms of Service or other published guidelines, or partakes (or is reasonably suspected of partaking) in any illegal activity, even without a subpoena, warrant, or other court order, and to release such information in response to discovery requests, or in response to any circumstance which we, in our sole discretion, deem an emergency. We cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who may be using the Services for illegal activities. We also reserve the right to report any suspected illegal activity to law enforcement for investigation or prosecution. We also reserve the right to comply with subpoenas, warrants, and other court orders requesting information obtained or any information obtained or stored by us.
Changing/Deleting Personal Information
If you would like to have your personally identifiable information changed or removed from our database, please contact us at Info@innovatvlive.com, and we will use reasonable efforts to comply with your request. Keep in mind, however, that there will be residual information that will remain within our databases, access logs, and other records, which may or may not contain such personally identifiable information. The residual information will not be used for commercial purposes; however we reserve the right, from time to time, to recontact former customers or users of this Web site.
Third-Party Ad Serving
We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit this Web site. These companies may use information (not including your name, address or telephone number) about your use of the Services and visits to other web sites and services in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know you choices about not having this information used by these companies, please contact us at Info@innovatvlive.com, or click here http://www.networkadvertising.org/optout_nonppii.asp.

Media Distribution Agreement
This Media Distribution Agreement (“MDA”) is made and entered into as of the effective date listed on Innova TV Networks, LLC, Order.
1. Provision of Services by INTV.
1.1. Services offered by ITVN allow customers, in exchange for exclusive rights to distribute exhibit, telecast and sublicense programming, to place customer’s content on digital media platforms. Details and terms and conditions of each specific service, license and/or provision of platform to be provided by ITVN to Customer pursuant to this MDA (“Service(s)”) shall be specified in ITVN standard order form (“Order”). Each Order includes schedules applicable to the Service ordered by Customer (“Schedule(s)”). This MDA, all Orders executed by the parties, and all schedules and documents referenced herein shall be collectively referred to as the “Agreement.”
1.2. Orders will be binding only when signed by both parties, or when ITVN acknowledges and accepts in writing (which may be electronic) an Order transmitted to ITVN by Customer. During the Initial Term and for any Renewal Term(s) designated for each Service, ITVN shall provide and support the Services set forth in an Order, and Customer shall receive a revenue share from ITVN for such Services, and ITVN shall receive from Customer exclusive rights for programming content. The parties may enter into one or more Orders for Services during the term of this Agreement.
1.3. The initial term for each Service shall be as set forth in the Order (the “Initial Term”). The term of each Service shall be renewed automatically for additional terms, each equal in length to (a) the renewal period specified in the Order or (b) if no renewal period is specified in the Order, the shorter of (i) the Initial Term or (ii) twenty four months, (each such period a Renewal Term”). Either party may prevent a Renewal Term from taking effect by notifying the other party in writing of its intent not to renew the Service not less than sixty (60) days prior to the end of the then-expiring Initial Term or Renewal Term, as the case may be. Unless otherwise terminated pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, each Order shall be in effect during the Initial Term and Renewal Term(s) for such Service or for so long as any Services under that Order are active.
1.5. The “Service Commencement Date” for each Service is the date on which ITVN notifies the Customer (by writing or electronic transmission) that such Service is available for Customer’s use, unless Customer notifies ITVN within forty-eight (48) hours of its non-acceptance of such Service on the basis that agreed technical specifications for the applicable Service have not been met. In the event Customer so notifies ITVN further tests of the Service will be conducted and (i) if ITVN finds a defect, a new Service Commencement Date will be established as the date on which ITVN notifies the Customer (by writing or electronic transmission) that such Service is available for Customer’s use without such identified defect(s); or (ii) if ITVN fails to find a defect in the Service during re-testing, the original Service Commencement Date will remain unchanged. Notwithstanding anything contained to the contrary herein or in any other part of the Agreement, any Customer use of a Service other than for testing purposes (even if following notice of non-acceptance) shall be deemed as acceptance of such Service.
1.6. Services may include ITVNs’ own services and services that it resells from its suppliers (“ITVNs’ Suppliers”). Customer acknowledges that ITVNs’ ability to grant Customer a license to use certain Services or ITVNs’ ability to provide certain resold Services is subject to all leases, licenses, and/or other agreements (each a “Resale Agreement”) between ITVN and ITVNs’ Suppliers. In the event of the expiration or termination of any applicable Resale Agreement, ITVN may terminate the affected resold Service upon written notice to Customer without any liability to Customer. ITVN agrees to give at least thirty (30) days prior written notice to Customer (or, if it is not possible to give 30 days notice, as much notice as possible under the circumstances) of the termination or expiration of the Resale Agreement governing ITVNs’ delivery of the resold Service to Customer, or any other condition arising under such Resale Agreement which may adversely affect Customer’s use of the resold Service or ITVNs’ ability to provide such resold Service.
1.7. Defined Terms. Unless otherwise defined in the Order or its applicable Schedules, the following terms shall be defined as follows:
a. “Network” means the telecommunications network and undersea or terrestrial fiber optic systems, and network of servers and other network assets, owned, operated or otherwise licensed for use by ITVN and offered to Customer for carriage of Customer’s traffic or for other Services under this Agreement.

c. “Customer Content” means any files, pages, data, works, information and/or materials on, within, displayed, linked or transmitted to, from or through the Network, including, without limitation, images, photographs, illustrations, graphics, audio clips, video clips, e-mail or other messages, metatags, domain names (including those registered on Customer’s behalf in connection with the provision of Services hereunder), games and text as provided by Customer or Customer’s clients or end users.
d. “Customer Technology” means Customer’s proprietary technology, including Customer’s internet operations design, Customer Content, software tools, hardware designs, algorithms, software (in source and object forms), user interface designs, architecture, class libraries, objects and documentation (both printed and electronic), trade secrets and any related intellectual property rights throughout the world whether owned by Customer or licensed to Customer from a third party, together with any derivatives, improvements, enhancements or extensions of any of the foregoing, conceived, reduced to practice or developed during the term of this Agreement solely by Customer without reference to the ITVN Technology.

2.1. ITVN shall have the right to insert commercial spot announcements within both archived and live/linear content. ITVN and Customer shall divide the nets proceeds of any ad revenue as pursuant to provision of Services according to the fees and terms listed in the Order(s), together with all reasonable fees or costs for third party products or services that ITVN procures on behalf of Customer, to the extent such third party fees and costs are approved by Customer in writing.
2.2. Usage Charge. The “Usage Charge” for a particular month shall be an amount equal to the sum of all of the Per Service Usage Charges (as defined hereafter) for all Services provided to Customer under an Order during such month. The “Per Service Usage Charge” for each Service shall mean the total fees incurred by Customer with respect to such Service as set forth in the applicable
Schedule referenced in the Order. Any outstanding charges will be collected from any revenue due to customer from ad insertion.
2.3. Prior to rendering any Service under an
Order, ITVN shall bill Customer for all non-recurring
fees indicated in the Order (“Initial Invoice”). Customer will be required to pay the Initial Invoice for each Order prior to ITVN rendering any Service under that Order to Customer. After the Initial Invoice, invoicing under each Order occurs monthly in arrears for Usage Charges.
2.4. Customer shall pay ITVN on all invoices within thirty (30) days of the invoice date. Any invoiced charges not received by ITVN on or prior to their due date will accrue interest at a rate of one and one half percent (1.5%) per month, or the highest rate allowed by applicable law, whichever is lower. In addition to the foregoing and without prejudice to ITVN other rights and remedies under this Agreement, at law or equity, if Customer is delinquent in its payments, ITVN may, at ITVNs’ sole discretion do any one or more of the following: (i) terminate this Agreement pursuant to its terms; (ii) suspend providing Services (or any of them, in whole or in part) to Customer until payment in full has been made to ITVN; or (iii) require other assurances to secure Customer’s payment obligations hereunder.
2.5. All fees charged by ITVN with respect to the Services and equipment provided to Customer are exclusive of taxes (including without limitation, all sales, use, or privilege taxes), VAT and similar fees, or governmentally or quasi-governmentally imposed charges, now in force or enacted in the future and imposed on ITVN, the transaction or the Customer due to the provision, sale or use of the Services or to the transaction or performance under this Agreement (“Taxes and Governmental charges”). All Taxes and Governmental Charges shall be paid by the Customer, except for taxes based on ITVNs’ net income.
2.6. The fees for a Service listed in an Order will remain in effect during the Initial Term of such Service. ITVN may change its fees for a Service during a Renewal Term upon thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to Customer. Customer may terminate such Service by providing written notice to ITVN at least fifteen (15) days prior to any increase in fees; otherwise the Customer will be deemed to have accepted the new fees.
2.7. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, ITVN shall pay to Customer amounts calculated as set forth on the Order Form for the ITVN service. The Customer Amounts constitute full payment by ITVN for advertisements routed and/or served to the Customer’s content. ITVN shall send to Customer each month a report that shows in reasonable detail the basis for payment due to Customer (“Customer Report”) by the 30th day of the month following. Customer acknowledges and agrees that all payments to Customer hereunder shall be based on the impression counts used by the applicable Advertisers to pay ITVN, and that the Customer Reports are adjusted to reflect such counts, following the end of each month. All amounts received from activities ITVN deems to be fraudulent may be refunded to Advertisers in ITVN’s sole discretion.
2.8 ITVN agrees to pay Customer within 30 days after the last day of the month in which ITVN received the applicable Net Revenue, provided that no check will be issued for any amount less than $50 U.S. All unpaid earnings will rollover to the next pay period. Each party is responsible for paying any taxes, duties or fees relating these transactions for which such party is legally responsible.
3. Customer Obligations.
