Streamload's old Privacy Policy

Here are the old terms.

" Rules & Legal Policy

Streamload's Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy statement discloses Streamload's privacy practices and is incorporated into and is subject to the Terms and Conditions of Use. By entering into the Agreement, you expressly consent to Streamload's use and disclosure of Your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Information Collection and Use: Streamload is the sole owner of the information collected from its Users. Except as required by law, subpoena or court order, Streamload will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.

Registration. In order to use Streamload's services, Users must first complete a registration form, which requires providing Streamload certain information. This information is used to identify the specific User utilizing Streamload's services. The User may provide optional identifying information, demographic information, and unique identifiers to enable us to provide a more personalized experience on the site.

Content Providers. The Content Provider must provide contact and other identifying information on the submission form. This information is used to enforce Streamload's Policy Against Copyright Infringement and its Terms of Service.

Content Recipients. The Content Recipient must provide contact information (e.g., name and shipping address) and financial information (e.g., credit card number and expiration date) on the order form. This information is used for billing purposes and to fill Content Recipients' orders. If Streamload has trouble processing an order, it will use this contact information to notify the Content Recipient.

Cookies. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the User's hard drive containing information about the User. Cookies identify the User for our database, but provide no information other than that which You have already provided Streamload. For instance, by setting a cookie on this site, the User would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on the site. If a User rejects the cookie, they may still use the site. The User, however, will be limited in some areas of the site. Cookies can also enable Streamload to track and target the interests of the Users to enhance their experience on the site. Some of Streamload's business partners use cookies and action tags (also known as single pixel gifs or web beacons) on the site for purposes such as serving ads and measuring advertising effectiveness. Streamload, however, has no access to or control over their use of these cookies and is not responsible for the data collected through these cookies, or how any such collected data is used or shared by Streamload's business partners. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and action tags is completely anonymous. If you would like more information about this practice and your choices, click here.

Log Files. Streamload uses IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track User. IP addresses are linked to personally identifiable information for security and operational purposes only.

Correspondence. Streamload may retain correspondence from Users for tracking purposes only and, except as required by law or to assist in enforcing the Agreement, will not use it for any secondary purpose or to send You unsolicited electronic mail.

Use of Personal Information. Streamload will not give, sell, rent, share, or trade any personal information about You to third parties or provide Your personal information, including your name or electronic mail address, to third parties except as required by law, subpoena or court order. Streamload may disclose Your username, name, address, electronic mail, and other personal information as it believes necessary or appropriate in connection with an investigation for fraud, intellectual property infringement, piracy, or other illegal activity as well as dispute resolution and enforcement of the Agreement. Streamload will share aggregated demographic information with its partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. Streamload uses an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill Users for goods and services. Streamload may partner with other parties to provide specific services. When the User signs up for these services, Streamload will share names or other contact information as necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.

Metadata. By your use of Streamload's service you grant a non-exclusive, sub-licensable license to Streamload for any and all rights in the identifications, descriptions, or other metadata you have provided in connection with Your Public Content and Private Content. Streamload reserves the right to rent, sell or otherwise share this metadata with other entities at its discretion.

Links. This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that Streamload is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our Users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy statement applies solely to information collected by Streamload on the Streamload web site.

Surveys and Contests. From time-to-time Streamload may request information from Users via surveys or contests. Participation in any such surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the User therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose the requested information. Information requested may include contact information (e.g., name and address), and demographic information (e.g., age level or income). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.

Security. Streamload uses best practices to protect our Users' information. When Streamload asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is protected with SSL encryption software for transmission to Streamload. All of our Users' information is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Streamload employees must use password-protected screen-savers when they leave their desk. When they return, they must re-enter their password to re-gain access to your information. Furthermore, employees are kept up-to-date on Streamload's security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, Streamload employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance placed on privacy, and what they can do to ensure the Users' information is protected. Finally, the servers on which Streamload stores personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Supplementation of Information. Streamload may combine information about the purchasing habits of Users with similar information from its partners to create a personalized user profile. When a User makes a purchase from one of Streamload's partners, the partner company may collect and share that purchase information with Streamload to better tailor the site to the Users' preferences.

Privacy of Other Users. Your use of other Users' personal information obtained through Streamload is strictly limited to communications related to Your use of Streamload's services that are not unsolicited commercial messages and any other purpose that a User expressly opts into after adequate disclosure of the purpose(s). In all cases, You must give Users an opportunity to remove themselves from Your database and a chance to review what information You have collected about them. In addition, except as defined in this section, you can not disclose personal information about another User to any third party without Streamload's consent and the consent of such other User after adequate disclosure.

Special Offers. Streamload may occasionally send information on products, services, special deals, or a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of the Users, Streamload presents the option to not receive these types of communications. Please see Streamload's Choice / Opt-Out provision below.

Site and Service Updates. Streamload may send its Users site and service announcement updates. Users are not able to un-subscribe from service announcements, which contain important information about the service. Streamload communicates with the User to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account via electronic mail or phone.

Correcting/Updating Personal Information. If Your personally identifiable information changes (such as your zip code), Streamload will endeavor to provide a way to correct or update the personal data You provided to it. This can usually be done at the Account Information page or by electronically mailing our Customer Support at

Removing Personal Information and Content. Streamload will remove Your contact information from its current database if You decide that You no longer want to use Streamload's services and request to be removed from the database. Streamload may in some circumstances retain information that You have requested removed to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce the Agreement. Further, such prior information is never completely removed from Streamload's databases due to technical constraints and the fact that Streamload backs up its systems. Accordingly, Your personal information will not be completely removed from Streamload's databases in response to Your requests.

Choice/Opt-out. You may opt-out of having Your information used for purposes not directly related to Streamload's services at the point where we ask for the information. Users who no longer wish to receive promotional materials from our partners may opt-out of receiving these communications by replying with unsubscribe in the subject line in the electronic mail or electronic mail us at

Notification of Changes. If Streamload decides to change this privacy policy, it will post those changes so Users are always aware of what information Streamload collects, how it uses it, and under which circumstances, if any, it is disclosed. If at any point Streamload decides to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, Streamload will notify You by way of electronic mail. You will have a choice as to whether Streamload may use Your information in this different manner. Otherwise, Streamload will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.

No Warranties. Due to technical, legal and practical limitations, Streamload cannot warrant and does not guarantee, and You should not expect, that all of Your private communications and other personal information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. Streamload may disclose information to governmental authorities or third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. You authorize Streamload to disclose any information about You to law enforcement or other government officials as Streamload, in its sole discretion, believes necessary, prudent or appropriate, in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringement, or other activity that is illegal or may expose Streamload to legal liability.
