How does proDAD determine if content should be removed for a privacy violation?
For content to be considered for removal, an individual must be uniquely identifiable by image, voice, full name, Social Security number, bank account number or contact information (e.g. home address, email address). Examples that would not violate our privacy guidelines include stage names, business names, and address information in which the individual is not named. We also take public interest, newsworthiness, and consent into account when determining if content should be removed for a privacy violation. proDAD reserves the right to make the final determination of whether a violation of its privacy guidelines has occurred.
What does uniquely identifiable mean?
To be considered uniquely identifiable, there must be enough information in the video that allows others to recognize you. Please note that just because you can identify yourself within the video, it does not mean you are uniquely identifiable to others. A first name without additional context or a fleeting image, for example, would not likely qualify as uniquely identifiable.
How proDAD’s privacy process works
Reporting a privacy violation
To file a privacy complaint, please send an email to: email@example.com with as much information about the privacy violation as possible, including a link to the video. Within 48 hours proDAD will reply to your message. Please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your spam filter to ensure you receive these messages.
First-party claims required
We do not accept claims on behalf of third parties except in the following situations:
• The individual whose privacy is being violated does not have access to a computer
• The individual whose privacy is being violated is a vulnerable individual
• You are the parent or legal guardian of the individual whose privacy is being violated
• You act as a legal representative for the individual whose privacy is being violated
We will not accept privacy complaints filed on behalf of:
• Other family members (e.g., husband, wife, cousin, brother, sister)
• Co-workers or employees (individuals must report themselves)
• A company
Receiving notice of a privacy violation
proDAD provides you, the uploader, an opportunity to remove or edit the private information within your video. We email you about the potential violation and allow you 48 hours to take action on the complaint. If you remove the alleged violation from the site within the 48 hours, the complaint filed will then be closed. If the potential privacy violation remains on the site after 48 hours, the complaint will be reviewed by the proDAD video content team.
If we remove your video for a privacy violation, please do not upload another version featuring the same people. These individuals will likely file another privacy complaint or report you for harassment. We are serious about protecting the rights of others and may bar users from uploading videos that violate people’s privacy.
