We ask for some personal information when you create an account, including your email address and a password, which is used to protect your account from unauthorized access.
  • Usage Information. When you use JapanTube, we may record information about your usage of the site, such as the channels, groups and favorites you subscribe to, which other users you communicate with, the videos you watch, the frequency and size of data transfers, and information you display about yourself as well as information you click on in JapanTube (including UI elements, settings). If you are logged in, we may associate that information with your JapanTube Account. In order to ensure the quality of our service to you, we may place a tag (also called a "web beacon") in HTML-based customer support emails or other communications with you in order to confirm delivery.

This number, and information about your installation of the Uploader (version number, language) will be sent to JapanTube when the Uploader automatically checks for updates and will be used to update your version of the Uploader.


  • If you submit personal information to JapanTube, we may use that information to operate, maintain, and improve the features and functionality of JapanTube, and to process any flagging activity or other communication you send to us.
