Registration

The minimum information we need to register a user is an email address, a password.

We may also ask some further, voluntary questions during registration for certain services so we can gain a clearer understanding of our users. This also enables us to personalise services for our users.

Share Data

We will not share your personal information with others for marketing purposes unless you have given us your permission. Any information which is collected by Pasifika TV when you access a third party service is processed under this Privacy Policy.

Use of Cookies

We use cookies for a number of reasons:

  1. For statistical purposes to track how many individual unique users we have and how often they visit our website. We collect data listing which of our pages are most frequently visited and by which types of users and their location.
  2. We may use third parties to collect anonymous user information.
  3. Both Pasifika TV and third party advertisers will generate cookies to collect statistical data such as whether a user has seen an advertisement or particular content and if so, how long ago, how many users have seen an advertisement and how many users have seen it more than once.
  4. Placing cookies on your computer means we may be able to serve you adverts that you might be more interested in, and allows us to control the number of times you see them and measure how effective the ad campaign has been.

You can turn cookies off but if you do this you may not be able to use as many services on our website and you might see more pop-ups and other intrusive advertising, as we won't be able to limit what you see using cookies. You will however still be able to view editorial content.
