Privacy Policy
Last updated: March, 2020

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully to understand how MediaStreams Communications, its subsidiary and affiliate corporations, successors, and assigns (collectively referred to as “MediaStreams”) uses and protects the information you provide. This privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) applies to this World Wide Web site and any variations or successors to this website (, the “MediaStreams Site”), any MediaStreams computer software downloadable or otherwise available from the MediaStreams Site (“MediaStreams Software”) and any MediaStreams services purchased or otherwise made available from the MediaStreams Site (“MediaStreams Services”) (collectively, the “MediaStreams Properties”). This Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) applies to all Users (“Users”) of the MediaStreams Properties.


MediaStreams may collect two (2) types of information about you: Personal and Non-Personal.

  1. “Personal Information”. Personal Information refers to information that lets MediaStreams know the specifics of who you are and which may be used to identify, contact or locate you (e.g. name, mailing address, telephone number and e-mail address). MediaStreams may collect Personal Information when you use the MediaStreams Properties including, without limitation, setting up account information, filling out surveys, corresponding with MediaStreams, or otherwise volunteering information about yourself.
  2. “Non-Personal Information”. Non-Personal Information refers to information that, by itself, does not identify you as a specific individual (e.g. demographic information or website visitations). MediaStreams may collect Non-Personal Information through any of the methods discussed above as well as automatically through use of industry standard technologies described further below.


The Personal Information practices set forth apply to all MediaStreams’ customers worldwide.

  1. Registration. Prior to using one or more of the MediaStreams Properties, MediaStreams may require certain Personal Information and Non-Personal Information to create an individual account (“Account”) or to enable features or functionality of the MediaStreams Properties. Failure to provide all required information required by MediaStreams may prevent access to any or all MediaStreams Properties, and failure to maintain accurate information may result in suspension or termination of access to any or all MediaStreams Properties.
  2. Information Collected Through Technology. While you are able to visit the MediaStreams Site and remain anonymous, MediaStreams or its third party service providers may still collect Non-Personal Information about your use of the MediaStreams Properties (e.g. your Internet browser, operating system, IP address, connection speed, and the domain name of your Internet service provider). Such information may be gathered by the following methods:

(a) Cookies. Cookies, including local shared objects, are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive which work by assigning to your computer a unique number that has no meaning outside of the MediaStreams Site. Cookies do not generally contain any Personal Information. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually configure your browser to prevent this. Not accepting cookies may make certain features of the MediaStreams Properties unavailable to you.

(b) IP Address. You may visit many areas of the MediaStreams Site anonymously without the need to become a registered User. Even in such cases, MediaStreams may collect IP addresses automatically. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you begin Services with an Internet services provider. Each time you access the MediaStreams Site and each time you request one of MediaStreams’ pages, the server logs your IP address.

(c) Web Beacons. Web beacons are small pieces of data that are embedded in web pages and e-mails. MediaStreams may use these technical methods in HTML e-mails that MediaStreams sends to Users to determine whether they have opened those e-mails and/or clicked on links in those e-mails. The information from use of these technical methods may be collected in a form that is Personal Information.

(d) Tracking Content Usage. If you use the MediaStreams Services and you post audio visual materials including, without limitation, text, logos, artwork, graphics, pictures, advertisements, sound and other related intellectual property contained in such materials (collectively, “Content”) to your website or to a third party website, MediaStreams tracks and captures Non-Personal Information associated with User accounts and the use of Content.


  1. System Administration. MediaStreams may use Non-Personal Information for the purposes of system administration, assisting in diagnosing problems with MediaStreams servers, monitoring MediaStreams’ system performance and traffic on the MediaStreams Properties and to gather broad demographic information about MediaStreams customers.
  2. Personalization. MediaStreams uses Cookies and IP Addresses to track features such as delivering Content specific to your interests and informing you of new, relevant services or certain third party offerings.
  3. Notices to Registered Users. If you have registered for an Account, MediaStreams may use your Personal Information to send e-mails regarding your registration, including confirmation to verify the accuracy of any information you have provided, and instructions on how to post Content. MediaStreams may also send you e-mails to verify your identity or to notify you if MediaStreams believes your use of MediaStreams Properties violates any applicable agreement for the use of the MediaStreams Properties.
  4. Service E-mails. MediaStreams may use your Personal Information to send you e-mails relating to services you have subscribed to or technical notices concerning server or network maintenance..
