Safety

Social interactions occur through social media, for example, the policy explains that when you choose to share information with social networking services or single sign-on services about your activities on the Dailymotion Service, such as videos you watched or “liked” on Dailymotion, information about you and your activities may be shared with that social network or single sign-on service.

The policy notes that Dailymotion uses ad tracking, third-party marketing, and behavioral advertising to support its service. In addition, the terms say they sell users' data to third parties, but not data of users under the age of 16. Dailymotion's terms say they take steps to limit access to sensitive information from or about users to only those Dailymotion employees, agents, and contractors who have a legitimate business reason to access such information.
