MaaterMakers (“MaaterMakers”, “Us”, “We” or “Our”) is a subsidiary of America’s Amazing Teens, LLC aka The AAT Project, a Delaware limited liability company with principal office address in New York, NY 10022.
We provide users, fans and creators (“You”, “Your”) access to videos, blogs and other programming and services via Our network of website and/or any other platform or media through which We make such services available from time to time (collectively, the “Services”).
Our primary goals in collecting information are to improve Our features and content, to connect You with creators that You may enjoy, and to deliver content, promotions and other material that may be of interest to You.
a. When You apply to join the MaaterMakers network or otherwise supply information about Yourself to one or more of the Services, We will collect Your name, age and contact information and We may collect additional information You decide to supply about Yourself and Your interests. Such information that You supply may encompass both “Personal Information” and “Non-identifying Information” (defined below).
b. If You register for Our Services via one of MaaterMakers’ connected social networking communities (such as Facebook or YouTube) (“Partner Communities”), We may obtain both Personal Information and Non-Identifying Information You provided to the Partner Community. The information We obtain may depend on the privacy settings You have with the Partner Community. “Personal Information” is information about You that can be used to contact or identify You, such as Your full name, address, e-mail address or phone number. “Non-Identifying Information” means information that does not permit the identification of an individual person. We may also combine information from Partner Communities with information We collect through Our Services. For example, if You sign up with Us to be a channel partner using Your YouTube account, We obtain information about Your YouTube account including Your YouTube user name, external identifier, channel title, number of subscribers to Your channel, number of videos, number of views, number of comments, location of thumbnail image, videos, Your video playlists, YouTube activity, public profile URL and other information You have provided to YouTube. If You link Your social media accounts to MaaterMakers, We can collect access tokens sufficient to connect these accounts and display Your public feed.
