Third parties who provide us with analytics services for the Roku Services may also automatically collect some of the information described above, including, for example, IP address, access times, browser type and language, device type, device identifiers and Wi-Fi information.

Other third parties, including channel providers, advertisers and ad-related services, may also automatically collect information about you through the Roku Services and Third Party Channels, including personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across different websites, devices, online channels and applications when you use our services. For example, channel providers and advertisers can collect information about your Roku Devices (including unique identifiers) and your usage of their channels for their own purposes, including advertising and analytics. Some third parties help us and [u]others associate your activities across the browsers and devices you use[/u], or that your household uses, for retargeting, cross-device advertising, analytics, and measurement purposes. Some third parties, such as Google, may also collect information on behalf of Roku and others for online advertising purposes and to provide Roku and others statistics about users of the Roku Services.


I suspect it is but this one just struck me as unusually intrusive.

Everyone told me that third parties were a waste.

I'd tell them that.

In other words.....we will cover our asses in how we allow others to pay us, or provide services on our behalf, that capture information about you and use that to target and/or to sell your information because you are a cheap bastard who doesn't pay us enough.

That one I did. It just seemed more nasty than others I have bothered to read.

Also, you NEVER know what Roku will do.

And it came in a special EMAIL. Not in an application for membership or filling out a form or subscribing to a service.

Internet based video is more about monitoring your video habits, gathering data, predicting behavior and serving out tailor made ads than it is about playing video for your enjoyment.
