Data Collected through Cookies and Similar Technologies. Like many online services, we use various technologies to collect usage data and store preferences. The data collected helps us to propose, protect and improve the VideoStreme Service as well as to personalize your user experience by adapting the Content and advertising to your taste. The technologies we use are discussed below. Cookies and Local Storage. One technology we use is called a cookie, a small data file that is transferred to your computer’s hard disk. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with the VideoStreme Service or VideoStreme advertising published outside of the VideoStreme Service; to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on the VideoStreme Service; and to customize Content and advertising. We may create a unique device or user ID for you and store it in a cookie so we can customize your experience based on your preferences. These uses allow us to create a better experience for you on the VideoStreme Service. For further information on VideoStreme’s cookie management policy, please read out Cookie Policy
available here. You may also decide to manage your cookie settings at any time by indicating which types of cookies you accept or refuse to receive by clicking on the cookie management page available at all times on the VideoStreme Service. We may collect information through other kinds of local storage (also referred to as "Flash cookies") and HTML5 local storage, including in connection with features such as volume/mute settings for the Video Player. Since these technologies are similar to browser cookies, they are sometimes referred to as "browser cookies" even though they may be stored in different parts of your computer. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. By changing your browser settings, you can instruct your browser to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. For further information on disabling cookies or deleting information contained in cookies in general, please click here. Please note that disabling cookies or deleting information contained in cookies or Flash cookies may interfere with the performance and features of the VideoStreme Service, including the Video Player. For example, we may not be able to store your preferences or login information or customize the Content and advertising to your viewing habits. Web Beacons or Pixels. In addition to cookies, we may use other technologies such as web beacons or pixel tags, which can be embedded in web pages, videos, or emails. Web beacons or pixel tags are used to collect certain types of information from your browser or device; check whether you have viewed a particular web page, ad, or email message; and determine other usage details including: the time and date on which you viewed Content, the IP address of your computer, and the URL of the web page from which the Content was viewed. Mobile Device Identifiers and Software Development Kits ("SDKs"). We may use or work with third parties, including our business partners and service providers, who use mobile SDKs to collect information such as advertising
identifiers (e.g., "ad-ID" or "IDFA") and information related to how mobile devices interact with the VideoStreme Service. An SDK is computer code that app developers can include in their apps to enable ads to be shown, data to be collected and related services and functionality to be implemented (a mobile SDK is in effect the mobile app version of a pixel tag or beacon, described above). For instance, we may use this technology to analyze how you interact with Content and advertisements and to enable analytics or other features through mobile devices. o The uses of these various technologies, notably in connection with advertising on the VideoStreme Service, are explained further below. 2. PURPOSE FOR COLLECTING THIS DATA We collect Data because we are passionate about creating customized and engaging experiences for our users. We use all of the information we have to help us provide and support the VideoStreme Service with a first-class user experience. The way we use the Data we collect from or about you depends on how you use the VideoStreme Service. Our purposes for the collection of the Data may include the following uses: 2.1. Provide, Improve and Develop the VideoStreme Service. We are able to deliver the VideoStreme Service, personalize the Content, evaluate how well the Content is performing, and make customized recommendations for you by using this information to understand how you use and interact with the VideoStreme Service and the things you’re interested in on and off our Services. For example, we collect your authentication data to allow you to connect to your account, and we collect information on your language setting preferences to provide you with the VideoStreme Service in the language of your choice. We may conduct surveys and research, test features in development and analyze the information that we have in order to evaluate and improve products and services, develop new products or features and conduct audits and troubleshooting activities.
2.2. Communicate with You. We may use your information to send you marketing communications, communicate with you about the VideoStreme Service and update you about our policies and terms.

For example, we use billing information to process payments to a Partner (using a third-party payment vendor), to retrieve account information for a Partner, and to detect abuse of the VideoStreme Service. 2.5. Use of Precise Location Data. In order to access certain services from your mobile device, you may be required to share with us your device’s location data (limited to the city level only). In addition to providing you with certain services, this also enables us to serve you Content related to your local area such as local news and sports videos, or to ensure the respect of Content geo-restrictions dictated by the Content uploader. This data may also be used to tailor advertising to you based on your location. 2.6. Use of Aggregate or Anonymized Data. In addition to any personally identifiable data use that is described in this Privacy Policy, we may aggregate information about you and other individuals together, or otherwise "de-identify" the Data about you (meaning that the Data is anonymized and aggregated so it no longer personally identifies you). We
may use this “de-identified” information for any legitimate internal and external business purpose, including for research and analysis, administration of the VideoStreme Service, advertising (e.g. improving our targeting efforts), and business promotional purposes. 2.7. Ensure Safety and Security. We use the information we have to help verify accounts and activity, and to promote safety and security on and off our Services, such as by investigating suspicious activity or violations of our legal terms and policies. We work hard to protect your account using teams of engineers, automated systems and advanced technology such as encryption and machine learning. 3. DATA RECIPIENTS We want you to understand when and with whom we may share Data we have collected about you or your activities on the VideoStreme Service.

This information includes Data on your online activities in relation to your use of the VideoStreme Service, such as the websites you have visited and advertisements you have viewed. For example, we may tell an advertiser how its ads performed, or how many people viewed their ads or installed an app after seeing an ad, or provide non-personally identifying demographic information (such as 25-year-old female, in New York) to these advertisers to help them understand their audience or customers, but only after the advertiser has agreed to abide by our Privacy Policy and strict confidentiality obligations. Please also note: we do not share directly identifiable information about you with advertisers and advertising-related service providers unless you give us express permission. 3.5. Audience Measurement Providers. Our business partners, such as content programmers, as well as our advertisers, seek to measure the
performance of their creative material across many platforms, including the VideoStreme Service. 3.6. Third Parties When Required by Law or When Necessary to Protect Your or Our Rights. In some instances, we may be required to disclose information from or about you without providing you with notice or giving you the opportunity to consent. For example, we may disclose your information in good-faith in the following ways: to protect the legal rights of VideoStreme and our affiliates or partners, and each of our respective equity holders, directors, officers, employees, agents, and business partners; to protect the safety and security of users of the VideoStreme Service or third parties; to enforce our Terms of Use; to protect against fraud; for risk management purposes; and to comply with or respond to the law or legal process or a request for cooperation by a government entity. However, it is VideoStreme’s policy, whenever reasonably possible and legally permissible, to promptly notify you upon receipt of a subpoena or court order requesting your Data and to not produce your Data until after receipt of such subpoena or court order, so that you will have adequate opportunity to move to quash this request in court. Furthermore, if you notify us that you believe your legal rights have been violated by VideoStreme or another user of the VideoStreme Service, we may provide the Data that you provide to us to others to the extent that we believe it is necessary to evaluate and respond to your complaint. 3.7.

Our aim is to make you feel confident and safe when using the VideoStreme Service.

For example, we take steps to limit access to sensitive information from or about you to only those VideoStreme employees, agents, and contractors who have a legitimate business reason to access such information. We also use measures like encryption and hashing to help protect sensitive information when in transmission, and firewalls to help prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to your personal information.

Despite these efforts, in today’s world there is always a possibility that a breach in data transmission or storage may occur. We want you to feel confident in our security when using the VideoStreme Service, but we cannot guarantee the security of any information from or about you 100% of the time.
