Notice to California residents:
Do Not Track ("DNT"). DNT is a privacy preference that users may set in certain web browsers that sends a signal to websites and services that the users do not want certain information about their website visits collected over time and across websites. Like many other online service providers, Sling Media does not currently alter its data collection practices when it receives DNT signals because there is no consensus among industry participants as to what DNT means in this context. To find out more about DNT, you may visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.

We keep such information on servers that are protected by firewalls and other technological means against intrusion or unauthorized access. They are located in a physically secure facility; however, there is no such thing as "perfect security" on the Internet. We rely on you to select passwords that cannot be guessed easily and to safeguard those passwords from disclosure. By using the Slingbox Products you acknowledge that we cannot guarantee the information you transmit to us will be 100% secure. Your use of the Slingbox Products and information you provide us is at your own risk. Please contact us if you have any information regarding unauthorized use of the Slingbox Products.
