Media Kingdoms (MK) is committed to progressing its constantly growing database of media data to ultimately perform as a database for collectors and video library enthusiasts with physical copies of seemingly impossible to find titles and other forms of digital content for purposes of benefit to the public where preservation of abandoned content is considered king. This open approach to data is somewhat like the situation in a public library. Content (not yet available) will eventually be opened to the public to offer their possessions in a public marketplace.
What Personal Information May MK Have on Its Computers and Systems?
MK uses standard Web logging in its Web servers, therefore our Web server may automatically recognize the domain name of each Visitor, each Visitor’s IP address, what Web page the Visitor requests, and the time of the request, along with a variety of information supplied by the visitor’s browser. See www.microsoft.com and www.mozilla.com and www.google.com for information about the Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome browsers, and see www.apache.org for details about Web logs.
In addition, MK may collect the email addresses and messages of those who communicate with it via email addresses in contact forms for the purpose of communication regarding interest in our rare titles. We do not share this information with anyone else outside of the staff of this website.
MK may collect personally identifying information when a Researcher purchases any title, including the Researcher’s name, address, telephone number, and email address, and the Researcher’s proposal for using the media strictly for the purpose of transmitting the content to the user and keeping a price charting graph of the history of purchases by users of the website.
MK may use "cookies" to track Users' activities on the Site and within the database. Cookies are small files that a server transfers to the hard drive of someone who visits a site and that the server can access when the person returns to the site.
The primary sources of content for the libraries presented on this website are mostly gathered from publicly accessible Web pages and donated by third parties and users of the website, but MK will expand on such sources through its own collection activities. For instructions on removing a specific title or multiple titles currently included in the library that may be restricted by copyright law, please see our DMCA section for requesting removal of available content.
MK recognizes that because of the extreme ease of copying digital media, no refunds can ever be given. All purchased content is either of an actual physical release, or a made-on-demand digital file or DVD-R copy of a release that no longer exists. However, a request can be made to send another DVD-R copy if purchased title arrives broken or corrupt. Fortunately for buyers, we verify everything before it is mailed out and pack with great care. As a result, we have still yet to this day, never encountered any issues with content delivery on-demand.
The communications between you and MK may pass through many machines, operating systems, programs, browsers, Web servers, networks, routers, Ethernet switches, Internet service providers, proxy servers, intranets, the public phone system, or other devices (collectively, "Devices") on your premises, at MK servers, and in between. Some of these Devices create logs of activities that are recorded on computer systems.
What Might Media Kingdoms Do With the Information on Its Computers?
MK has absolutely no intention to charge a fee for known copyrighted materials. We must be informed if the mistake of possible copyright infringement occurs. MK may transfer the information about specific titles to its servers for the purpose of tracking the history of all existing media, including personally identifying information of those behind the creation of the media, into the database. The databases are made available to researchers and may be made available on the Site, or provided to third parties, for any use, without limitation. For instance, some of the content are considered legally free game and are now in the collections of the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian Institution.
Advances in data mining technology may make it possible to discover more personally identifiable information or profiles in the library.
It is possible that the computers at MK could become compromised by others and that the information on our servers could be collected and disseminated without our knowledge or consent. While MK strives to stop "hackers" from breaking into its machines, we not responsible or liable for any such unauthorized uses of the library or its content.
