Traffic Data Collected
When you visit the Websites, web servers collect information about your visit (known as “traffic data”), which is stored as deidentified or aggregate data. We use traffic data to learn more about visitors’ use of the Websites and to improve the quality of the content and functionality of the Websites, as well as to target our offerings to the people most interested in them based on their use of the Websites. In order to provide the Service to our Customers, Stream collects certain information and data about End Users (“End User Information”). Stream provides analyses of deidentified or aggregate End User Information to its Customers and to other third parties (“Analyzed Data”). Stream takes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that Analyzed Data does not include any PII, as defined below Personally Identifiable Information Personally identifiable information (“PII”) is information that can be used to identify an individual user, for example, a person’s name, home address, email address or phone number. We engage third party service providers to collect certain PII on our behalf, for example billing information such as credit card number. We receive and store any PII users enter on our Websites, send to us in an email or voluntarily provide to us in any other way. We may also collect PII that is necessary to fulfill Stream’s legitimate interests, which will be described to you at the time of collection. We will use this information for the purposes of which it was collected.

Confidentiality and Security
Information Security and Data Integrity
Lost or Stolen Information
You must promptly notify us if your PII is lost, stolen, or used without permission. In such an event, we will remove that PII from your account and update our records accordingly.
Stream will retain PII for so long as is necessary for the purposes for which we collected such PII. For example, Stream will retain PII we process on behalf of our Customers for as long as needed to provide Service to our Customers. Stream will also retain and use PII as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
Controlling Your PII
As a registered user of the Websites, you can modify or delete some of the PII you have included in your profile by logging in and accessing your account. You cannot, however, change your username once you have registered. Upon your request, Stream will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete your account and the PII in your profile; however, it may be impossible to remove your account without some residual information being retained by Stream. We will respond to your request to access within 30 days. We may withhold information where the search for that information would require disproportionate effort or have a disproportionate effect to, for example, the cost of providing the information, the time it would take to retrieve the data, or how difficult it may be to obtain the information requested. To exercise your rights under these provisions, please contact us at the “Contact” details below. When we receive your requests, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.
We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you Service.

Notice to Residents of the European Economic Area and the United Kingdom
The following applies to individuals in the European Economic Area and the United Kingdom. Stream is required to inform you of the lawful basis of our processing of your PII.
- Processing based on your consent – Such uses may include to enhance our Websites and Service, or to send users materials, updates, and product information regarding the Websites or Service.
- Processing necessary for the performance of a contract – Such uses include to provide our Service to our Customers, to communicate with you, to administer and monitor the Service, to customize content that may be of interest to you, to facilitate transactions and process payments, to respond to your inquires, to determine your eligibility to set up your account, and to provide maintenance, support, and customer service.
- Processing necessary to comply with our legal obligations – Such uses include the security of the Websites and Service, and otherwise as required by applicable law.
We will use your PII only for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably determine we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. For example, we consider deidentification and aggregation of PII to be compatible with the purposes listed above and in your interest, because the deidentification or aggregation of such information reduces the likelihood of improper disclosure of that information.
PLEASE NOTE WE MAY PROCESS YOUR PII WITHOUT YOUR KNOWLEDGE OR CONSENT, IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE ABOVE RULES, WHERE THIS IS REQUIRED OR PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
In accordance with applicable data protection laws, you may have the right to request: access to, rectification, and erasure of your PII; restriction of processing of PII; objecting to certain processing of PII; and the right to data portability. Where any processing of PII is solely dependent upon your consent, you have the right to withdraw such consent at any time. When we receive your request, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request. We may withhold information where we are required by law to do so or if the search for that information would require disproportionate effort or have a disproportionate effect to, for example, the cost of providing the information, the time it would take to retrieve the data, or how difficult it may be to obtain the information requested.
Where you believe that we have not processed your PII in accordance with applicable data protection laws, you may lodge a complaint with the respective supervisory authority or data protection regulator. You can find your data protection regulator here .
Cross-Border Transfer of PII
Stream is based in the United States of America. If you are from a country outside of the United States of America with laws governing data collection, use, and disclosure that may differ from U.S. law and you provide PII to us, please note that any PII that you provide to us may be transferred to the United States of America. By providing your PII, where applicable law permits, you hereby specifically and expressly consent to such transfer and processing and the collection, use, and disclosure set forth herein or in any terms and conditions related to the use of and access to the Websites or Service.
Stream safeguards and enables the global transfer of PII in a number of ways. The following describes some of the protections that are taken with regard to data originating from certain countries:
