1.4. How the Data Is Collected.
1.4.a. data Collected through Cookies and Similar Technologies. Like many online services, we collect usage data and store preferences using various technologies. The data collected helps us propose, protect and improve the My Stream 4U and personalise 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 a cookie; a small data file transferred to your computer's hard disk. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to understand better how you interact with the My Stream 4U Service or My Stream 4U advertising published outside of the My Stream 4U Service; to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on the My Stream 4U Service, and to customise content and advertising.
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 on My Stream 4U website.
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 My Stream 4U Service, including the Video Player. For example, we may not be able to store your preferences or login information or customise 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 e-mails.
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 e-mail 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 My Stream 4U.
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 analyse how you interact with content and advertisements and to enable analytics or other features through mobile devices.
The uses of these various technologies, notably in connection with advertising on the My Stream 4U Service, are explained further below.

3.1. Business Partners. We work with several business partners who help us offer and improve the My Stream 4U Service, including, for example, our content programmers, distributors, and corporate owners. We may share information collected from or about you with such business partners, but always in an anonymised form so that you are not identifiable.

In addition, when you choose to share information about your activities on the My Stream 4U Service with Facebook or Google, My Stream 4U may send information about you to Facebook or Google.
Facebook or Google may then make that information visible to Facebook users or Google users in accordance with applicable law, their respective data policies, and your Facebook or Google privacy settings.

We remind you that My Stream 4U is independent of these third-party companies and that any privacy settings you might have chosen on the My Stream 4U Service are not applicable on Facebook, Google or any other social network.
3.3. 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.
However, it is My Stream 4U's policy, whenever reasonably possible and legally permissible, to promptly notify you upon receipt of a subpoena or court order requesting your data and 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 My Stream 4U or another user of the My Stream 4U 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.
3.4. Third Parties in Connection with Certain Transactions. If we sell all or part of our business, make a transfer of assets, or otherwise might be involved in a change of control transaction, or in the event of bankruptcy, we may transfer information from or about you to one or more third parties as part of the transaction, including as part of the due diligence process.
Please note that in such a case, your data would be shared only as an integral part of the My Stream 4U Service and not sold or transferred separately from the Service to third parties.
4. DATA SECURITY AND ACCOUNT ACCESS
4.1. Data Security. My Stream 4U attaches great importance to the security of your data and takes all appropriate steps to limit the risk that it may be lost, damaged or misused. We aim to make you feel confident and safe using the My Stream 4U Service.
We use various physical, technical, and administrative measures to safeguard information in our possession against loss, theft and unauthorised use, disclosure, and modification. For example, we take steps to limit access to sensitive information from or about you to only those My Stream 4U employees, agents, and contractors with legitimate business reasons 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 unauthorised persons from gaining access to your personal information. We also use techniques such as data aggregation to render it more difficult to link and trace information to you.
Despite these efforts, in today's world, there is always a possibility that a breach in data transmission or storage may occur. Therefore, we want you to feel confident in our security when using the My Stream 4U Service, but we cannot guarantee the security of any information from or about you 100% of the time.
Please note that if you allow others to use your account (including others you permit to set up profiles under your account), they may be able to view information about your account or any of the profiles under your account, including information about the videos you view and your e-mail address. Therefore, you should take care of how you handle and disclose your personal information and should avoid sending personal information through insecure e-mail.
Please refer to the Federal Trade Commission's website at https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/topics/privacy-identity-online-security for further information on how to protect yourself from identity theft.
5. DATA RETENTION

After that point, data is kept only for statistical purposes (or as otherwise legally permitted) and shall not be used for any other reason. Please note that you may always exercise your right to erase your personal data stored in our system.
