Monkeytalk Privacy Notice 

Personal Information

  • Browsing MonkeyTalk You can watch videos on MonkeyTalk without having a MonkeyTalk Account or a PHPBucket Account. You also can contact us through the MonkeyTalk Help Center or by emailing us directly without having to register for an account.

  • Your MonkeyTalk Account. For some activities on MonkeyTalk, like uploading videos, posting comments, flagging videos, or watching restricted videos, you need a MonkeyTalk or PHPBucket Account. We ask for some personal information when you create an account, including your email address and a password, which is used to protect your account from unauthorized access. A PHPBucket Account, additionally, allows you to access other PHPBucket services that require registration.

  • Usage Information. When you use MonkeyTalk, we may record information about your usage of the site, such as the channels, groups and favorites you subscribe to, which other users you communicate with, the videos you watch, the frequency and size of data transfers, and information you display about yourself as well as information you click on in MonkeyTalk (including UI elements, settings). If you are logged in, we may associate that information with your MonkeyTalk Account. In order to ensure the quality of our service to you, we may place a tag (also called a "web beacon") in HTML-based customer support emails or other communications with you in order to confirm delivery.

  • Content Uploaded to Site. Any personal information or video content that you voluntarily disclose online (e.g., video comments, your profile page) may be collected and used by others. If you download the MonkeyTalk Uploader, your copy includes a unique application number. This number, and information about your installation of the Uploader (version number, language) will be sent to MonkeyTalk when the Uploader automatically checks for updates and will be used to update your version of the Uploader.


  • If you submit personal information to MonkeyTalk, we may use that information to operate, maintain, and improve the features and functionality of MonkeyTalk, and to process any flagging activity or other communication you send to us.

  • We do not use your email address or other personal information to send commercial or marketing messages without your consent. We may use your email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major MonkeyTalk changes or for customer service purposes). You also can choose how often MonkeyTalk sends you email updates in your MonkeyTalk Account settings page.

  • We use cookies, web beacons, and log file information to: (a) store information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit MonkeyTalk; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information; (c) monitor the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns; (d) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed; and (e) track your entries, submissions, and status in promotions, sweepstakes, and contests.

Information That is Publicly Available

  • When you create a MonkeyTalk Account, some information about your MonkeyTalk Account and your account activity will be provided to other users of MonkeyTalk. This may include the date you opened your MonkeyTalk Account, the date you last logged into your MonkeyTalk Account, your age (if you choose to make it public), the country and the number of videos you have watched.

  • Your MonkeyTalk Account name, not your email address, is displayed to other users when you engage in certain activities on MonkeyTalk, such as when you upload videos or send messages through MonkeyTalk. Other users can contact you by leaving a message or comment on the site.

  • Any videos that you submit to MonkeyTalk may be redistributed through the internet and other media channels, and may be viewed by other MonkeyTalk users or the general public.

  • You may also choose to add personal information which may include your name, gender, profile picture or other details, that will be visible to other users on your MonkeyTalk Account channel page. If you choose to add certain features to your MonkeyTalk Account channel page, then these features and your activity associated with these features will be displayed to other users and may be aggregated and shared with your friends or other users. Such shared activity may include your favorite videos, videos you rated and videos that you have uploaded.

Your Choices

  • If you have a MonkeyTalk Account, you may update or correct your personal profile information, email preferences and privacy settings at any time by visiting your account profile page.

  • You may control the information that is available to other users and your confirmed friends at any time by editing your MonkeyTalk Account and the features that are included on your channel page. If you have enabled Active Sharing, other users may see that you, as identified by your account name, not your email address, are watching the same video.

  • You may, of course, decline to submit personal information through MonkeyTalk, in which case you can still view videos and explore MonkeyTalk, but MonkeyTalk may not be able to provide certain services to you. Some advanced MonkeyTalk features may use other PHPBucket services like PHPBucket Checkout or AdSense. The privacy notices of those services govern the use of your personal information associated with them.
