"Cookies" are small bits of text that are either used for the duration of a session ("session cookies"), or saved on a user's hard drive in order to identify that user, or information about that user, the next time the user logs on to a web site ("persistent cookies").

The Savalas.TV web site does not use persistent cookies.

One or more of Savalas.TV's affiliated sites may use session cookies to provide streamlined navigation throughout their sites and for statistical analysis. These session cookies are deleted from the component's server soon after your session ends and are not collected or saved. You can set up your Web browser to inform you when cookies are set or to prevent cookies from being set. You can still use our web site if you do not accept the cookies, but you may be unable to use certain cookie-dependent features.

Information Collected and Stored Automatically

If you visit our site to read or download information, we collect and store the following information about your visit:

  • The name of the Internet domain (for example, "" if you use a private Internet access account, or "" if you are connecting from a university's domain) and the IP address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you are using the Internet) from which you access our site;
  • The type of browser and operating system used to access our site;
  • The date and time you access our site;
  • The Internet address of the web site from which you linked directly to our site; and
  • The pages you visit and the information you request.

This information is primarily collected for statistical analysis and technical improvements to the site. Savalas.TV uses software programs to create summary statistics, which may be used for such purposes as assessing what information is of most and least interest, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas. In certain circumstances, however, we may take additional steps to identify you based on this information and we may share this information, including your identity, with other government agencies, if we were required to do so by law.

Although questions, comments, and other communications that we receive generally are not retained as permanent records, please note that it is possible that any public post you make here could become part of a permanent record by a public Internet archive, or copied and/or referred to by another organization.

Use of Plug-ins

The first time that you use an area of our site that requires animation software, such as "Flash" or "Shockwave," you may see an invitation to go to the software manufacturer's web site so you may download software needed to view the animation on our web site. This prompt occurs because our system can tell whether your browser has the needed capabilities provided by these plug-ins. Our system does not read or place anything on your hard drive when recognizing your browser's capabilities. While the plug-in(s) are needed to view some content, you retain control and choice about conducting the download. At the time that we create and post the web pages that require these software plug-ins for viewing, they are provided by their manufacturer for download and use free of charge. We can not guaranty, however, that the plug-in will remain free, or that the manufacturer will not collect personally identifying information about you when you elect to download the software from their site. If you choose to visit the manufacturer's web site to obtain the plug-in, please carefully review their posted policies for details about personal privacy and use of downloaded plug-ins

Savalas.TV reserves the right to review links and add or remove links at any time for any reason consistent with the law or Savalas.TV guidelines.

Except for partnerships, Savalas.TV does not agree to reciprocal link arrangements, when Savalas.TV must link to an external site if that site will link to Savalas.TV.

Anyone using this system expressly consents to such monitoring and is advised that if such monitoring reveals evidence of possible abuse or criminal activity, such evidence may be provided to appropriate law enforcement officials. Unauthorized attempts to upload or change information on this server are strictly prohibited and may be punishable by law, including the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 and the National Information Infrastructure Protection Act of 1996.

Videochat Privacy - provided by Userplane

Userplane is concerned about protecting your privacy. The following outlines our policies for information gathering and dissemination.


Any visitor who wishes to chat, or use other free or premium (paid) services available on the Userplane site is asked to complete a registration form. During registration a user is required to give some information such as name, email address, birth date information, gender, country of residence and zip code if applicable. Certain services may additionally require that users provide postal mailing addresses, credit-card or other billing information. Optional data fields such as marital status, household income, interest areas, etc. may be included. We encourage our users to register and provide all mandatory and optional information so we can provide a more personalized experience on our site. Users may need to register more than once for certain services offered by Userplane and/or its marketing partners and/or previously provided registration information may be used to "pre-populate" a registration form when a user registers for a new Userplane service.

We use the information we collect from our members during the registration process to allow us to deliver, and in appropriate cases bill members for desired services, to make Userplane and its marketing partners more responsive to users, and to help us customize the service and target advertising, sponsorships, and email offers from us and our business partners based on our members' demographics, likes, dislikes, and affiliations.

At our discretion, we will make aggregate information about Userplane's users available to help describe and identify our users to business partners, co-branded sites, the industry, and the public, as well as our advertisers. In certain cases we may also share discrete information about a user to a marketing partner to enable that partner to work with Userplane to deliver the desired service to the user. The need to use such explicit user data will be made known to the user at the time the service is requested and user acceptance of the service shall constitute authorization of the right of Userplane to use that explicit data for the sole purchase of such deliver of service. Userplane will not share any detailed information with other companies without the user's express knowledge and consent to the need to do so.

Policies for Individuals Under the Age of 13

Userplane is intended for individuals age 13 and over only. We do not accept registrations from children under the age of 13, as we do not provide content for children. PARENTS PLEASE READ: Due to the interactive nature of our site, and in order to comply with Federal laws designed to protect your children on the Internet, we do not permit children to register on our site.

Terms of Service and Userplane Standards

All services on Userplane include Terms of Service and Userplane Standards policies to which any participating member must agree to adhere by. Userplane reserves the right to monitor all activities undertaken by its users while on the Userplane site, or while using any Userplane product or service, in order to ensure that these Terms of Service and City Standards are not violated. This includes, but is not limited to the automatic logging and review of chat room text messaging, and access to all message board folders. In the event that a member violates a Userplane Terms of Service or City Standards policy, Userplane reserves the right to revoke a user's Userplane Membership or use of any free or premium service. In the event that Userplane revokes a premium service for which the member has paid a subscription fee, such revocation of service may, at Userplane's sole discretion, be without refund.

In the event that a Userplane member is suspected of being in violation with a Userplane Terms of Service or City Standards policy, or with any law, local, state, federal, or otherwise? Userplane reserves the right to use, and share with any such law enforcement agency, any and all user data available to it to identify, and communicate with the member in violation and/or as needed in the revocation of its membership, rights to services, or in compliance with the request of any law enforcement agency.
